* 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.

* The mildly insane royals do this in TalesOfTheBranionRealm, especially in ''The Stone Prince'' where the coldbloodedness and strength of mind necessary to be merciless is part of the protagonist's training by his mother. She is known for having hanged a hundred rebels at once, calmly discussing tactics with her aides while the sentence was carried out.

* In the First Succession War in ''Tabletopgame/BattleTech'', the Coordinator of the Draconis Combine was assassinated by a sniper while conducting a campaign on the Davion world of Kentares IV. His heir orders the Draconis troops to "kill them all" and summarily executed the first general that questioned the order. By the end of the massacre, 52 million people were dead and the morale of the Draconis troops [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone was absolutely crushed]] from being forced to execute helpless civilians with katanas. Even among the countless atrocities of the First Succession War, the Kentares Massacre stands out for its sheer brutality, and the horror helped pave the way for more 'civilized' warfare aiming to avoid unnecessary destruction.

Persian tradition dictated that wounded be card for and for the corpses of nobles and valiant warriors were to be returned if possible and treated with honor. Xerxes was so enraged by the battle, though, that all were killed and the body of Leonidas was crucified and beheaded.
