* The ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' citybook ''Mexico City By Night'' features a last example of this in the form of Jaggedy Andy. Prior to his Embrace, Andy was a bigoted tourist who firmly believed that his status as an American citizen rendered him invincible; after spending the day wandering around the city, laughing at "jobless lazy spics," he and his friends hailed a cab and demanded to be taken to a strip club - only for the driver [[TheDogBitesBack to hand them over to the Sabbat for a Blood Feast]] attended by [{TheDreaded Sascha Vykos]] itself. In the end, Andy's defiance and stupidity got too annoying even for Vykos, so instead of just killing him, Vykos used Vicissitude to [[TheBlank seal every single orifice in Andy's head]] - [[FateWorseThanDeath and then Embraced him]]. Andy now spends his nights as a pariah, forced to spend eternity chiseling new eye sockets and mouths for himself, and terminally dependent on the homeless Mexicans he once despised. Given that he's still an asshole, nobody's shedding any tears his way.

* At one point in ''Series/TheWire'', Chris Partlow, the top enforcer for the vicious Stanfield drug empire, brutally beats one of his victims to death with nothing more than [[PistolWhipping the butt of his gun]] and his bare hands. Even fellow enforcer Snoop, who kills without feeling or remorse, it taken aback at the sight. That's bad, right? Take into consideration that the victim in question is a pedophile who in the past had sexually abused his stepson Michael, and Michael asked Chris to do it out of fear that the guy would do the same to Michael's little brother, and how you evaluate the situation changes a bit...

* After watching Lucy being a total bitch to Mirta for most of the ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' episodes they feature in before the Miss Magix contest (a beauty pageant), it's hard to feel bad for her when the Trix cancel their illusion and reveal her hideous true face as she's being crowned the winner, or in the next episode when all the other Cloud Tower students make fun of her as a result.

** Subverted twice by Elan. The first time when he catches up to his evil brother after being skewered by him, and his brother is left hanging off a ledge over a pit of monsters. After struggling to decide, he helps him up and captures him. The second time was just after Daimyo Kubota had given Elan every justification to kill him, then calmly says "I surrender," just before Elan carries through with that. Elan is visibly enraged by Kubota worming his way out of his comeuppance, but he can't bring himself to kill the man because Elan is strictly ''good''. He ''does'' punch Kubota in the face, however.

** In fact, this is most of Anakin's Dark actions in the prequels. In Film/AttackOfTh Clones, he kills the Sand People who kidnapped, beat, tortured, and quite probably raped his mother. What keeps it from being justified is that 1) he did it out of revenge and in anger, 3) the sandpeople themselves consider humans to be monsters, and likely thought Anakin's mother had done things to deserve what they did to her and 2) he killed all of them, women and children included. He later takes down Dooku at the start of Revenge of the Sith, which would have been completely justified, except Dooku was almost-literally [[JustForPun unarmed.]] To be fair, in both cases Anakin is remorseful (he has a full-blown MyGodWhatHaveIDone in the former scenario, and while accepting of it, isn't very happy with his choice in the latter scenario.

* ''ComicBook/{{Wolverines}}'': Mr.Sinister tearing off one of Daken's arms and ripping out his left eye for good measure would normally be the kind of gruesome act that would make the reader shudder in disgust and horror, and it is. ...but given this is ''Daken'', a serial murderer/serial rapist/professional sadist we're talking about, it's hard to feel sorry for him.
