It doesn't have to be bystanders telling the hero to Kill Him Already. It could be a particularly noble [[HostageSituation hostage]] telling him to GoThroughMe if he has to but not let the bad guy get away with it. It could be the villain himself, realizing that if this is the end, at least he can get a satisfying NotSoDifferent moment out of it. It's usually the speaker that determines whether the point of the situation is about the courage to do the right thing under pressure or the courage to do something unpleasant but absolutely necessary.

* In Literature/LordOfTheRings, Saruman is defeated by Frodo, and all the hobbits tell Frodo "Kill him!" because Saruman is a murderer... but Frodo refuses to allow it, and so Saruman uses the opportunity to try to kill Frodo... and so Sam tries to kill Saruman, but Frodo refuses to allow it--''again.''

Saruman is eventually killed by Wormtongue, who has enough after getting kicked one time too many -- and because Wormtongue has also murdered hobbits, the hobbits have no mercy on him, arrowing him to death when he tries to escape.

* {{MAG ISA}} -- At one point during their fight, [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119716 Eman has got a gun pointed at Kyle's head]]. He's a good guy and good guys cannot kill bad guys just like that.
** Claudita at one point, had [[http://mag-isa.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/119581 her sword right at the neck of the demon-possessed child]]. She couldn't kill him because angels don't kill humans.

** On the other hand he pulled a KillHimAlready when Gohan went mad and started toying with Perfect Cell. Though that was {{justified}} because Cell was an enemy [[SuicidialCosmicTemperTantrum who would rather kill himself and the planet he's on than die at the hands of another]], and that's exactly what he tried to do.
