** In her introduction during [[spoiler:the battle of Fort Slava]], Gabi, [[ISurrenderSuckers feigns to be a civilian surrendering]] to [[spoiler:the Mid-East Alliance forces holding the fort, only to use it as an opportunity to blow the armored train that was protecting it]]. It's shown that she volunteered for this despite the objections of Magath, their captain, and if she hadn't managed to pull it [[spoiler:Magath would've sent hundreds of Eldian troops to grind the defenses of the fort, resulting in massive casualties]].
** Eren does this when [[spoiler:he goes on a rampage on the Liberio's Internment Zone, his main targets were Willy Tybur and the Marleyan military top brass, but in the process he kills possibly hundreds of civilians as collateral damage]].
** [[KnightTemplar Floche]] in the ensuing battle of [[spoiler:Liberio is seen deliberately bombing buildings that could be housing civilians, as revenge for the initial attack that breached Wall Maria and caused thousands of deaths]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' features a few, most notably during the ''Exodus'' mission, wherein Noble 6 tours a city under Covenant assault. A courtyard filled with dead civilians is the first thing he passes; later he finds Brutes manhandling other civilians and possibly mauling them (if the player isn't quick enough with their gun); and finally watching ships full of evacuees mercilessly shot down by patrolling Corvettes overhead.
** It's noted that Brutes are generally deployed specifically to create such a scene: their barbaric savagery and ImAHumanitarian tendencies are particularly effective in terrifying and terrorizing the enemy.
** The Expanded Universe features numerous further examples. Master Chief at one point recalls a battle in which Jackals and Grunts herded populations of human civilians together for the sake of killing and eating them. Certain instances of human soldiers venting their response to such senseless cruelty have occurred as well.

A fairly young trope that emerged from the previously-hidden TruthInTelevision of UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar. Often used to show that WarIsHell and/or to [[AvertedTrope avert]] TruffautWasRight. Compare SinkTheLifeboats, LeaveNoSurvivors. Contrast TheWomenAreSafeWithUs, WouldNotShootACivilian.

** In the final act of the film, [[EliteMooks the leader of the Spetznas unit]] brought in to hunt down the Wolverines admonishes the local commanding officers to stop summarily executing civilians becuase it shows that they, the Soviets, are desperate and don't know how to control the situation, and further sows support for the Wolverines.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has all five sides in the war committing terrible war crimes. The worst were committed by Tywin Lannister's outrider troops, although Robb Stark's army were incredibly brutal to the peasants in the allied Riverlands (though to be fair, the commander of this army was Roose Bolton, who neither asked nor cared for Robb's approval, and simply did it. Plus he later [[spoiler: sold Robb out to the Lannisters)]]. Tavern wenches who slept with Lannister soldiers were likewise executed and hanged from trees, their bodies left to the crows.

However Stannis Baratheon does have a habit of punishing his men for this, such as castrating those who raped Wildling women even though Stannis was fighting the Wildlings.
