* In ''ConquestsOfTheLongbow'', Robin ''always'' arranges for Friar Tuck to give anyone he or his men kill in Sherwood Forest [[DueToTheDead a proper burial]]... except for the would-be rapist, who is dragged off the road and left out for the wolves and ravens.

** In ''SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'', [[spoiler:Hawthorne]] is revealed to be an evil bastard after the discovery that he is a serial rapist. It's not just casual rape, either. He deliberately raises an orphan girl until adulthood, developing a strong child-parent bond, and then rapes and kills her on her birthday. And then he starts over with a new one.

* In RobinHobb's ''Literature/LiveshipTraders'' trilogy, Captain Kennit's personal MoralEventHorizon is crossed when he drugs and rapes [[spoiler: Althea]]. The ''dragons'', who are otherwise depicted as purely selfish and completely uncaring towards "lesser beings" (i.e. humans), and will cheerfully murder and eat whomever they please, point out that this is the one thing that dragons never do. Indeed, this marks the point where Kennit's uncanny luck departs him, and [[spoiler:he dies within a few chapters.]]

* In the original Gaston Leroux novel ''ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', Christine expects to be sexually assaulted by the Phantom during her abductions, but he [[EvenEvilHasStandards actually has the decency]] not to do so. This after he has murdered a number of innocent people, especially via his penchant for hanging traps.

* In the ''WickedLovely'' series, the dark court's treatment of Niall. Physically abused and tortured? Harsh, but understandable. Physically scarred for life? It's in their nature. ''Emotionally'' scarred for life? It's still in their nature. Raped? They are pure ''evil''.
* In ''The High King'', the final installment of the PrydainChronicles, the readers again encounter Dorath, who had been a villain in the fourth book. That he was a brigand and thief, the readers already knew, but it's not until he announces [[spoiler:his intent to rape Princess Eilonwy and have her raped by his friends]] that he's revealed to be a monster.

* ''[[TheGirlWithTheDragonTattoo The Millennium Trilogy]]'' and its counterpart movies show very clearly that although killing hundreds of people in horrible and torturous ways is horrific, raping and violating them beforehand will cement the serial killer in monster territory like nothing else on the face of the earth. A good yard stick is asking the question "do you think Lisbeth was doing the right thing when she killed those men?" Hands up everyone who answered "yes"?
* In Creator/TomClancy's ''RedStormRising'', Micheal Edwards executes three Russian soldiers after they've been found having raped a pregnant Icelandic civilan. This was at least partly triggered by a personal experience (his old girlfriend was brutally raped and killed).

* ''Sisterhood'' series by FernMichaels: Kathryn Lucas from the book ''Weekend Warriors'' abides by this trope. Three bikers raped her in front of her husband. Those three knew that her husband was suffering from multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and seizures, so they knew that he would not be able to stop them. Interestingly, this is one of the few books where the author does ''not'' look through the viewpoint of the villain...perhaps to show that their crime is so horrible that going into their minds is too much. Kathryn also explained how she couldn't punish them legally because by the time she got around to that, the statute of limitations for her rape had run out.

* In the ''SwordOfShadows'' series, Mace Blackhail was always portrayed as a slimy opportunist looking to grab as much power as he can within the [[ProudWarriorRace Clanholds]], but it's his rape of Raina (the clan chief's widow and his main opponent) which is his MoralEventHorizon, cementing him as a truly evil character who needs to go down hard.

* In Terre d'Ange, the main country in Jacqueline Carey's KushielsLegacy series, rape is not only an unspeakable crime but also heresy because it violates their religion's central precept of ''Love as Thou Wilt.''

* In ''{{Rideback}}'', it's the threat of rape, to obtain a false confession, that pushes the military government into monster territory. And they'd already killed someone surrendering to them. [[LaResistance The rebel forces]] [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized aren't]] [[BlackAndGreyMorality much]] [[ByronicHero better]], so its inclusion was what told us that ''these'' were the true villains.
