* HarryPotter does this in Deathly Hallows - yes, Stupefy technically just knocks people unconscious, but when they're riding broomsticks hundreds of feet in the air... matters are made worse when he recognises one Death Eater as someone most likely under mind control and chooses to simply disarm him, which raises questions about all the ones whose faces he didn't see...

* Franchise/DocSavage has a strict policy of nonlethality, to the point that he won't normally carry a gun. When he does shoot people, he prefers tranquilizer pellets over bullets. His lieutenants (especially Monk and Ham) aren't so squeamish. The evil mastermind, however, typically dies in the end, thanks to his own infernal contraption, without any interference from Doc.

* Eliot on ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' causes an incredible amount of havoc for a supposed "hero."
-->"So yeah, we managed to get 7 million dollars back from that evil company and bankrupt them to boot. Let's see, that covers the original victims, and... well, fifteen policemen with life-changing nerve damage, one guard whose dream of being a concert violinist will never come true, eight thousand workers who've just lost their jobs and will have to find a new way to feed their families over the holidays, twelve cars whose windows I broke as a distraction (I'm sure the insurance will cover it... oh, wait, we just bankrupted the insurance company), three young men waiting for organ transplants who died because we shut down the freeway the ambulances were on...."

" As the team's "hitter"/"retrieval specialist" it is often his role to get 7 million dollars back from that evil company charge in and bankrupt them to boot. Let's see, that covers beat the original victims, and... well, fifteen policemen with life-changing nerve damage, one guard whose dream crap out of being a concert violinist will never come true, eight thousand workers who've crowds of people in defense of his teammates; since the Leverage crew are thieves and con artists working outside the law, often the people who Eliot is beating unconscious and generally tossing around like ragdolls are in fact innocent security guards and law enforcement officers just lost trying to do their jobs and will have to find a new way to feed their families over the holidays, twelve cars whose windows I broke as a distraction (I'm sure the insurance will cover it... oh, wait, we just bankrupted the insurance company), three young men waiting for organ transplants who died because we shut down the freeway the ambulances were on...."jobs.

* The Goddess Sariel in ''LightNovel/KumoDesuGaNaniKa'' always prioritizes saving lives in the moment with no regard for the future consequences. This behavior has resulted in the near-collapse of the system which would kill every living creature on the planet and yet she still interferes when a solution is being implemented that costs lives.

* Matt Murdock in ''Series/Daredevil'' has a strong ThouShaltNotKill policy for his vigilante activities. It doesn't stop him from pulling moves like ''throwing people off buildings'' or ''lighting them on fire''. Perhaps {{Justified}} by his super-senses giving him a better understanding of human anatomy and physics, but ''still''.

* An option in ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}''. As a Froggit early in the Ruins points out, some monsters can be spared if you reduce their HP far enough without killing them. [[spoiler:This does ''not'' work on Toriel -- if you try it, she ''will'' die.]]

* TheTerminator is this in the second movie. Being under orders not to kill doesn't seem to stop him from emptying a [[GatlingGood minigun]] at a group of police officers, then blowing up their cars.
