* HeelFaceDoorSlam: A Heel-Face turn and/or an apology is ''attempted'', but for whatever reason(s) is rejected; in other words, it's too little, too late, and beyond.

* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Deeming someone as evil without having done anything evil, and after getting fed up they decide to become evil or at least act the part. If mistreated and abused for no reason their prosecutors have ironically crossed the Moral Event Horizon themselves. Their first unambiguously villainous act may well be their Moral Event Horizon.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Like KickTheSonOfABitch, it involves harm befalling someone who really had it coming. Unlike that trope, the perpetrator is motivated by a desire to mete out justice and the victim's contemptible nature plays a central role in the decision to inflict harm upon them. It may still be an MEH (though much more rarely) if extreme DisproportionateRetribution was involved or if the perpetrator was, at the core, motivated more by impersonal malice than anything else and was just looking for a good excuse to hurt someone.

Added DiffLines:

* ReformedButRejected: A frequent fate to befall those who have crossed the MEH if they try to atone for their past. This may or may not be a reasonable response depending on how badly they want to make amends (and how much effort they've put in) and change, how awful their MEH-crossing act was, and how vile their post-MEH actions were.

* FelonyMisdemeanor: When something that isn't really that big a deal is treated as utterly unforgivable, although the punisher [[HeWhoFightsMonsters may cross it if he takes it too far]].

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Unlike KickTheDog, where it's an act that marks a character as evil, this is where the act is more palatable because the one receiving it [[LaserGuidedKarma deserved it]]. It may very well still be an MEH because of the intent; the victim's shittiness as a person plays a nominal-at-best role in the perpetrator's decision to inflict harm upon them, and the core motivation is malice, not justice.

In other words it was merely luck that made the victim deserve it and to the perpetrator it would have no difference if it didn't.
