* In ''Film/DjangoUnchained'', Django is mad enough to kill every white person in and around Candyland, making a special detour just to off the white mastiff handlers who train large dogs to rip black people limb from limb, and [[spoiler:did this to D'Artagnan, making this a case of stone cold vengeance]]. However, during the final showdown, he takes care to courteously ask the black slaves present to leave the house. Apart from the one who actually [[spoiler:not only ''has'' benefitted from being a slave but was also just as much a tormentor of the slaves and the one who destroyed his plans and hopes of leaving with Brunhilde, Candy's Uncle Tom estate manager Stephen, who he saves for last.]]

* Averted in Warhammer40K: The Chaos god [[WarGod Khorne]] ''used'' to be the god of martial honor and prowess, whose [[BloodKnight followers]] would not attack defenseless victims. Nowadays, "Khorne cares not from where the blood flows, so long as it flows", and the only distinction is that they'll leave defenseless targets alone only as long as there's a WorthyOpponent nearby.
