* ''Fanfic/TheWarOfTheMasters'': The Moab Confederacy under First Minister Elizabeth Tran enacts a policy of torture and extrajudicial murder of its enemies, paying no heed to such niceties as international borders or the feelings of their primary ally the Klingon Empire while they do it. Considering this policy is mainly directed at SpacePirates and [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil the Orion Syndicate]] and follows decades of raids against various border planets including pre-independence Moab, even some of the Starfleet characters sympathize. Though in ''Fanfic/DontSayGoodbyeFarewell'', Lieutenant al-Qahtani points out there's a practical problem with the policy, in that it encourages the slavers to [[ThrownOutTheAirlock dump their cargo]] to hide the evidence.

** Another prime example is when Wrestling/TheUndertaker tombstoned Wrestling/VickieGuerrero during his 2008 feud with Wrestling/TheBigShow. Granted he had tombstoned her once before already ([[spoiler:while feuding with Wrestling/{{Edge}} going into ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 24'']],) but by the time the 2nd one occurred, Vickie had already: [[spoiler:Stripped him of the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwe-world-h.html WWE World Heavyweight Title]], "banished" him from WWE for losing to Edge in a TLC match (with the help of [[FiveBadBand La Familia]],) AND enlisting the Big Show into tricking the Undertaker, culminating in Undertaker losing to Show by knock-out at ''No Mercy'']]. And this is not counting her involvement during Edge's subsequent feud with Wrestling/TripleH...

* ''Roleplay/ItsCurtains'': [[Theatre/PeterPan Captain Hook]] killing for [[DisappointedByTheMotive money]] and targeting a [[WouldHurtAChild child]] is pretty evil, but the child is ''[[WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance Darla Dimple]]'', who you can't say didn't deserve it. Hook still gathers animosity from the characters and audience, though, by killing a far more sympathetic [[LeaveNoWitnesses witness]] who caught him poisoning Darla.

** Tywin chooses to give a lecture to Tommen (a full on PetTheDog moment by itself) right next to Joffrey's body (albeit a dead body that ordered Ned Stark's death and started an expensive, bloody war) as Cersei is grieving for her son. He even mentions what a terrible king Joffrey was and coldly ignores Cersei's "this is not the time or place" feeble complaint. Although its insensitive it doesn't change the fact Joffrey still was a terrible king and Cersei ''did'' do a poor job at raising him.

** And of course, watching Joffrey Baratheon slowly suffocate at his wedding feast from a poison that mimics choking. [[AssholeVictim Good riddance.]] [[spoiler:Too bad he managed to frame Tyrion for it as he died.]]

* ''[[VideoGame/StarCraftI StarCraft: Brood War]]'' nearly accomplishes this by having you kill the series' resident JerkAss General Duke, then immediately walks it back by [[ShootTheDog forcing you to kill Fenix too]].

** The UED are an invasion force sent a decidedly Nazi-esque Earth, with the goal of defeating enslaving the Zerg and exterminating the Protoss. However, most of their campaign is dedicated to fighting the Zerg and overly throwing the oppressive Dominion, ruled by the evil Mengsk, so its rather easy to root for them.

* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'', [[SmugSnake Shinji Matou]] is the son of a bitch in question. The first kick would be in Fate route where Ilya [[spoiler:brutally killing him after Rider is beaten by Saber.]] [[LawfulGood Shirou]] is horrified; the rest of us just think Ilya is awesome. In Unlimited Blade Works; Gilgamesh gets to be the kicker, when he decided to [[spoiler:make the Holy Grail out of Shinji]]. This was quite the effective kick that after all it's done, [[spoiler:Shinji was so scared that he actually starts becoming more decent... as implied in the epilogue]]. And in Heaven's Feel [[spoiler:Sakura's FaceHeelTurn is marked by her beheading Shinji]]. In this case, the story doesn't really act like this was the wrong thing to do [[spoiler:(he was midway through [[AttemptedRape attempting to rape her]], and has been raping her for many years) but it still marks the point where she decides FINE. FUCK IT. I'll be evil]]!
** His grandfather Zouken as well. He only makes an appearance in Heaven's Feel, but [[spoiler:being pretty much the whole reason the Matou family is as screwed up as it is, the one behind 90% of Sakura's pain, ''and'' arguably the one responsible for Shinji's massive inferiority complex (which seems to be the core motivation behind a lot of his heinous actions), players' reactions when he was gruesomely killed by Sakura at the climax were pretty much "''FINALLY!''"]]

** After Theon spends the first few seasons kicking the dog, his torture begins this way but as this torture grows more excruciating and pointlessly cruel at the hands of [[{{sadist}} Ramsay Bolton]], it becomes harder to feel this way. In fact, by the end of the season, this trope can apply to the Ironborn men who sold Theon out to be tortured, as Robb Stark offered Balon that if the Greyjoys joined his side against the Lannisters, he'd support them becoming their own independent kingdom too...and that Balon's response was to have the Greyjoys stab the Starks in the back and invade the North, out of just a wounded sense of pride, and then simply ''hope'' that the Lannisters (and now the Lannisters' Bolton allies) would "reward" them with independence for turning on the Starks (which is what they ''should'' have done had they stayed loyal to the Iron Throne anyway!) [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves These Ironborn who betrayed him end up getting flayed alive by Ramsay]] who, nonetheless, continues torturing Theon until [[spoiler:Theon and Sansa manage to escape him.]]
