This is subverted by [[spoiler:John Clancy]] who points out that most terminally ill victims would prefer to live just a little bit longer.
** Although he's a hypocrite for saying so because [[spoiler:he performed a Mercy Kill on his terminally ill daughter]].

** Referred to as "Pasquale's Grace" in the series. At least one Temple Loyalist commander has taken to ordering it done to wounded Reformists since it's more merciful than taking them alive so that the Inquisition can torture them to death instead.
** It was also done by a captured captain to one of his midshipmen, again to save him from (more) torture.
** Another book has Diallyd Mab sniping a priest who had been sentenced to the Punishment (death by torture) for providing decent food to suspected heretics who hadn't been convicted of anything yet (he also snipes some of the priests who ordered the Punishment be done in the first place, for less merciful reasons).

* ''FanFic/CodeGeassMegiddo'': [[spoiler:After killing his father to save the life of his best friend, only for said best friend, years later, to start a revolution in his country, culminating in not only the death of said country but also the death of the woman he loved and the tarnishing of her good name, and ''then'' betraying said now-former-best friend to the father he hated, having his memories wiped, and then having to play the part of best friend with him]], one really can't blame Suzaku Kururugi for going full-throttle with the SanitySlippage. It's for this reason that numerous characters state that if Lelouch truly does still care for Suzaku (which he does), this is the ''kindest'' thing he can do for him. [[spoiler:Both Lelouch and Todoh acknowledge this, but state that if there's still the slightest possibility it can happen, they will both try to save Suzaku from himself, and even make pact over it]].
