* DownplayedTrope and Played for Laughs in the comedy "Vilaine" ("Mean"), where the Woobie Doormat protagonist wants to become mean to take revenge on all of those who constantly abuse her. One step of her self-training is trying to convince herself not to buy a kitten in a pet shop, even knowing that if no one buys them they will eventually be sent to euthanasia. [[spoiler: She buys the last one, but later completes her FaceHeelTurn by tossing it in the trashcan. Don't worry, he's alive...]]

* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', you can overhear one of Joker's goons telling the others that Joker once ordered him to kill his sister to prove his loyalty.

** Darth Bane had this as his first test of Zannah's dedication to the dark side in the second novel of the DarthBane Trilogy. She slowly gained the confidence of a local creature, coming to think of it almost as a pet. She then gets it to follow her back to camp, where Bane snaps its neck and tells her to throw it in the pot, it's now dinner.

* A heroic variant comes up in ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited Justice League]]'', or rather, a character's back story. Shining Knight, a knight in modern times, relates that he was tasked to raze a village to the ground by his lord King Arthur. Knowing Arthur couldn't have been so evil as to ask that, so he let them live. In return, he is ''rewarded'' for thinking rather than obeying blindly. He uses this as a metaphor for why the Shaggy Man/General Eiling is using flawed logic when he considers all super humans a threat, and only blindly obeying "duty", regardless of harmed InnocentBystanders, mattered.
