** 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.]]"

* Eric from ''Film/TheCrow'' is one of these. In fact, the entire movie (or comic book) can be seen as a horror movie viewed through the other end of the telescope... except if you're not violent, he's not either (witness him helping Sara's mom by forcing the morphine out of her body).

* Eric from ''Film/TheCrow'' is one of these. In fact, a far more altruistic example than most, with the entire movie (or comic book) can be seen as a horror movie viewed through the other end sinners in question being some of the telescope... except if most depraved, murdering, raping sadistic scum you're not violent, he's not either (witness him helping Sara's mom by forcing the morphine out of her body).likely to ever meet, and he even helps a drug addict who he justifiably sees as more a victim than anything..

** The angel of death and destruction, Abaddon is perhaps the singular personification of this, being the one who is said would personally unleash Armageddon on God's command.

* Creator/WillieRushton pointed out the essential flaw in this logic. In ''The Filth Amendment'', he discusses the Puritan streak in British religion and cites the folk-myth that a stone circle in the countryside is really a group of girls who tempted fate by dancing on the Sabbath, offering the Devil an unparelleld opprtunity to manifest and turn both them and their musicians into pillars of stone for their sin. Rushton pointed out that Satan is a pretty unlikely founder of the Lord's Day Observance Society, and it would be in his best Satanic interests to ''encourage'' rampant sin, not punish it.

* The original TropeNamer was UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun, who ripped through the Goths and Romans like they were tissue paper in the early 400s AD. Rather, he was called the scourge of God by his adversaries [[InvertedTrope instead of coming to the conclusion himself.]]
** UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan was also considered this, as indicated by the page quote. On the non-human side, the Black Death which wiped out most of Europe and a considerable chunk of Asia.

* Inverted for Creator/AgathaChristie's book, ''AndThenThereWereNone''. The murderer killed his victims from the ones he considered most innocent to the one he considered least innocent, so that the ones he considered the most guilty would suffer from anxiety and shock, while the slightly less guilty get a quick death.
