Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Slasher}}'': The Executioner targets people who are guilty of one of the SevenDeadlySins. Most of his victims turn out to be rather despicable people guilty of crimes such as rape, murder by inaction, and extortion. [[spoiler:When TheReveal comes around it is somewhat hinted that his father, a priest obsessed with punishing the sinful, was a source of inspiration in all this.]]

[[SortingAlgorithmOfMortality Not quite.]] It turns out that the common ground most monsters and antagonists, regardless of alignment, intelligence, or sanity, seem to share is a habit to pick targets who have just [[KickTheDog exposed]] some [[DeathBySex minor vice]] of their own. [[MadonnaWhoreComplex Given the choice between the prim and chaste (but initially vulnerable) FinalGirl, or the smoldering, seductive temptress]], they will, without fail, [[DeathBySex gut the temptress]], probably [[MyGirlIsNotASlut just after she's had sex to show us how promiscuous she is]].

* Franchise/{{Godzilla}} is the 50-to-100-foot, [[Main/BreathWeapon nuclear-breathing]], ImmuneToBullets sublimated-god embodiment of this trope, and is referred to as such on a number of occasions.

** In another ''[=MST3K=]'' movie, ''Film/HorrorsOfSpiderIsland'', a dancing troupe is stranded on an island and their manager Gary gets bitten by a radioactive spider, turning him into a sort of were-spider. Naturally, his first victim is the only stripper in the group, who had also shamelessly flirted with Gary in front of his secretary-slash-girlfriend Georgia.

* Subverted by Creator/SimonRGreen in ''Beyond the Blue Moon''. Contrary to popular belief, the Walking Man couldn't care less about minor vices. He reserves punishment for real monsters -- like a pedophile/child-murderer/necromancer, who gets beaten into a barely recognizable corpse...bare-handed.

* The Darkspawn of ''Franchise/DragonAge'' are said to be what came of the Tventir Imperium's attempt to invade heaven. The Maker was so angry he struck the magicians responsible with a terrible curse and cast them back to Thedas to sow chaos and destruction-[[UnreliableNarrator according to the intro cutscene, anyways]]...

* The infamous Westboro Baptist Church believes all natural disasters and actions committed by people to be God's will. They believe things like earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, car crashes, and mass shootings to be part of God's punishment for society's growing acceptance of homosexuality, abortion, other religions, divorce and remarriage, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the selling of Swedish vacuum cleaners]]. Their funeral protests are just their way of saying "[[JerkAss thanks.]]"
