* Your honour, my clients, the species known as 'homo sapiens or humanity' wish to file charges against the species known only as 'engineers' as portrayed in ''Film/Prometheus''. Having created humanity through an unsupervised and uncontrolled genetic experiment, these engineers then left clues as to their location on humanity's homeworld. When humans followed these clues, they became the victims of advanced bio-weapons that had been left lying about by the engineers in clear violation of basic safety regulations. Furthermore, the engineers are responsible for the creation of the species known as 'xenomorph', which presents a clear and present danger to all those who encounter it and can be found in multiple locations around the galaxy as a direct result of poor oversight.

** As of the quest "Sliske's Endgame", the jury is on indefinite recess. [[spoiler: Discussion with Jas herself reveals that the Elder Gods think of mortals and current gods alike as vermin on their food source, the world of Gielinor. Jas has requested proof of purpose from the acting World Guardian (the player) as representative of all mortals, else she and her siblings will exterminate said vermin and consume Gielinor to continue their own life cycle. They are not abusive, because we are not worthy of their malice... [[ButForMeItWasTuesday nor their thoughts]].]]

** For corroborating evidence, I would like to introduce the Darheel, a species of predator that is no longer capable of consuming meat, which has led to species-wide mental problems and the Indowy who have for all intents and purposes been condemned to slavery owing to a genetically induced inability to stand up for themselves either mentally or physically.

** The Jaghut themselves weren't slacking off either. Known for having created some other races just for fun (they didn't need them for anything in particular), some of those sentient or semi-sentient killing machines ([[spoiler: the Boles, the Nachts]]), they then just up and left them to do whatever they pleased, which includes looking for new things to hate and kill because, well, that's what the do best.
** And not to forget the [[spoiler: Azathanai]], who can be credited for creating most of the known races in the Malazanverse. Some still have some connection to whatever race they created, but some simple don't care anymore or think their creations deserve what they get.

* The prosecution submits the evidence of ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', which underlines the above mentioned example of the Celestials, who meddle in the fates of lower species at their own whim.
** While the case of the Atlantean Empire and Asgard's involvement in it would normally be considered a clear-cut case of this trope, giving humans technology they were most definitely not ready for, the prosecution accepts that Asgard has learnt its lesson and most definitely intends not to do it again.

* Your Honor, the prosecution would also bring suit against the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent T'lan Imass]] from the ''MalazanBookOfTheFallen''. Their ritual sealing of [[OurOrcsAreDifferent captured Jaghut]] and Forkrul Assail proved ineffective in the long-term as any person with sufficient strength and interest could remove the rock and thus release the trapped being. In addition, their actions directly contributed to the destruction of magic at various locations around the world, which continues to this day.

** Though it should be noted, most of the actions committed by Cid of the Lufaine were in the service of country Onrac. Onrac was in a war with another country using devastating weapons of mass destruction. The Onracian military hired Cid as a means of creating weapons to counter this enemy. While the Lufenians with all of their superior technology appeared to not have been directly involved in said war, therefore the entirety of the Lufenian people. cannot be held directly responsible for the actions of one man, specifically Cid of the Lufaine.
