* In InNomine, the worst of all possible occurrences is the Archangel Novalis responding to something you've done with a frown and the quietly uttered phrase "Oh dear". Because when you get to the point where the Archangel of Flowers, heavenly incarnation of peace, love and forgiveness, decides that something has to be done about you, then you have really messed up.

* In {{Traveller}}, the titular Travellers make sure to not do ''anything'' that louses up the Imperium's internal economic and political cohesion. Small wars between sub-states are ok; after all boys will be boys. But if you extend your war too far and bother your neighbors, use [[WeaponOfMassDestruction Weapons of Mass Destruction]] or otherwise become too much of a trouble then you will receive a visit from the SpaceMarines.

** Novalis's followers are forbidden from engaging in ''unnecessary violence''. She also has a subordinate Malakim - one of Heaven's mightiest warriors - who is the Angel of '''Necessary Violence'''. It can come as a great surprise when a known Angel of Flowers suddenly, with absolute surety, goes for the throat.
