* In the fifth ''Literature/{{Temeraire}}'' book, ''Victory of Eagles'', William Laurence and his fellow {{Dragon Rider}}s are ordered to attack French raiding parties throughout England and leave no prisoners; this sets off a vicious cycle causing the French to be more brutal, 'justifying' Laurence's brutality until another captain refuses to cooperate and snaps him out of it with one pointed question.
-->'''Tharkay''': A temporary viciousness may be pardonable in a gentleman, even admirable; but it must brand me forever a savage. Laurence, what ''are'' you doing?

* ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'':
** The threat of this is often used by the protagonist Empire of Charis when an enemy is either already defeatd or clearly outmatched to try and force a surrender. This tends to be effective, more often than not, because the enemy commanders eventually realize that the Charisian making the offer ''isn't bluffing''. One of the few times the opposing commander refused that offer, the Charisian commander not only followed through, but let Siddarmarkian soldiers, whose nation and people had been damaged horrifically because of the Church's machinations, to lead the charge.
** The Siddarmarkians have a special marching song, the Pikes of Kolstyr, that announces their intentions to do this. It was written in comemmoration of an old atrocity by the Desnairian Empire and is used to announce their intent to avenge similar atrocities, such as the Church's Sword of Scheuler, which sparked civil war throughout the nation.
** With the Inquisition's penchant for ColdBloodedTorture, there are instances when members of the Church's own forces order no survivors as an act of ''mercy''. An Army of God colonel orders his chaplain and healers to do this, and some of the victims even show ''gratitude'' as their throats are cut. Later, in a battle that allows the Kingdom of Dohlar to capture a Charisian ironclad, the sheer brutality of the Dohlaran sailors when they finally get aboard is attributed at least in part to this.

* In one of the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' side stories, a Sontaran patrol attacked a peaceful village, and nobody rose to the challenge. The commander was so annoyed at this that he ordered his force to kill everyone. Fortunately, Junior Cyberleader Kroton, freshly torn off from the Cyberman HiveMind, is in place to give them the fight they crave...

* In [[TheRomanEmpire Roman Conflicts]], once the battering ram was deployed, it was the signal that no prisoners would be taken, even as slaves. The ''Series/{{Rome}}'' episode "The Ram Has Touched The Wall" ("Murum aries attigit") explains this.

** It is standard Republic procedure, including in that episode, to gun down all surrendering battle droids. Even when they drop their weapons, raise their hands, and scream for mercy. This is frequently played for laughs.
