* ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, when he's given sympathetic motivations. He's a Holocaust survivor who doesn't want mutants to face the kind of genocidal [[FantasticRacism bigotry]] he endured in his youth. Though it does kind of go against him when he has no qualms about doing that to humans.

** In the Cacophony storyline, this is Batman's justification for saving Joker's life at the end, in spite of Gordon's protests. He tells Joker that he became Batman so he could save people from dying, no matter what.

* [[ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman Doomsday's]] motivation for killing everything he sees is that he was created via a horrific experiment that involved dying ''multiple'' times (we're talking hundreds if not ''THOUSANDS'' of deaths). He thinks everything in the universe is a threat to his life and he's terrified of dying again.
* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' story arc ''Comicbook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' starts out when Supergirl, who feels she's been manipulated and betrayed by everyone since she showed up on Earth several months ago, promises herself that she'll not be hurt again, and if life tries to hit her again, she's hitting back.

* This is the reason Minatsuki acts the way she does in ''DeadmanWonderland''. To keep anyone from abandoning her the way her mother did, she deliberately acts as crass and cruel as she can so that no one will ever get close to her.

* The horrid impact of WorldWarI brought about a common sentiment of "never again" (which was also repeated in a sense after the [[WorldWarII second War to End all Wars]]). As history showed, [[ForegoneConclusion it did]].

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', the Founders (a race of changelings) use this as justification for running the Dominion. They tell Odo that millennia earlier, they were peaceful, but were met with brutal distrust and were hunted down. Thus, they founded the Dominion to ensure they would never be in a position of weakness ever again, breeding the remorseless Jem'Hadar to do their bidding on lesser species. However, there are subtle hints through the show that the prejudice against changelings did not start until ''after'' the Founders started their empire-building.

** The Bajorans suffered a brutal fifty year occupation at the hands of the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Cardassians]] and ex-freedom fighters like Major Kira make it quite clear they will never suffer such an indignity again. Indeed, this is what kick starts the series, as the first step to guaranteeing the Cardassians stay away is the Bajoran provisional government requesting Starfleet establish a naval presence at Bajor, so any attacks on Bajor will be an automatic act of war against the Federation.

** Strangely, the Soviet Union might count for a significant period of time. Namely, from 1945 to about 1985, when the helm was taken by Mikhail Gorbachev, a man who hadn't been actively involved in politics or the military during the Second World War. The case had been made that the Soviet Union created its nuclear arsenal, a glacis of subjugated satellite states, and maintained a cripplingly huge military because its leaders and, actually, the whole country, were severely traumatised by the massive slaughter of the German attack.
