* ''Literature/HeroesSaveTheWorld'': Austin Smith is trying to adhere to this as much as he can. It's disquieting for him when he learns that he has the greatest potential for mass destruction out of the Children located thus far.

This is TruthInTelevision. In general, there are very few humans who can stand the thought of ''truly'' ending the life of another human without military training. The military has developed many studies over the years to evolve the best training curriculum to dehumanize the "enemy" and enable their soldiers to kill enemy soldiers. Even then, when a soldier is tasked with actually shooting a bullet that would end the life of another human being...many would rather intentionally miss. It is this (strength, in the case of all human life, but weakness in the case of human life with an opposing ideology) that makes modern militaries attempt to make the enemy soldiers appear as "unhuman" as possible. Otherwise, despite how some may make boasts to the contrary, in truth most people - including law enforcement - are loath to take a life unless absolutely necessary in the course of self-defence or the protection of others.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', the Jedi have compassion for all living things, and so they extremely dislike having to kill someone or something. However, they realize that it is sometimes necessary.

* ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' is the first first MCU film to have a protagonist who tries to follow this.

* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'': Main character Edward Elric refuses to kill to achieve his goals, even Homunculi. Still doesn't make him any less {{Badass}} by any stretch of the imagination. [[spoiler:Just look what he did to Pride. In fact, the closest he comes to killing anyone is when he punches through Father's chest after regaining his arm, and even then, he didn't actually die...instead, what happened to him was [[FateWorseThanDeath far worse]]]].

* ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid''. Butch Cassidy, the tough, notorious, wildly-successful, train-looting, bank-robbing, gun-waving, {{badass}} outlaw, when faced with the prospect of a shootout, lamely admits to the Sundance Kid that he had never killed a man in his life. It's almost painful to hear Butch pleading with the bandits to go away so that he won't have to defend himself.

* In ''Literature/FromTheNewWorld'', Squealer is not granted the death penalty for his crimes. Instead, he is sentenced to [[FateWorseThanDeath an eternity of suffering]]. He is then tortured and consumed alive by a special parasite, only for his cells to be regenerated simultaneously, allowing for eternal torture.

** This is the hallmark of [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor X]] for most of the X-Men hexalogy;[[note]]the original trilogy and the First Class trilogy[[/note]] he detests violence and firmly objects to the notion that deadly force is required to subdue evildoers. A grey area occurs in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', where Magneto's insatiable desire for revenge corners Charles into a moral bind--[[spoiler:if he releases Sebastian Shaw from his psychic grip, then Shaw will eliminate Erik, but if he maintains the mental hold, then Magneto will kill their target, and Xavier becomes an accessory to murder; Charles opts for the latter]]. In ''Film/XMenApocalypse'', he breaks his one inviolable rule when his own life, the lives of his team and billions of others are at stake: [[spoiler:he's unable to take down Apocalypse on his lonesome, so he commands Jean Grey to immolate his adversary with her Phoenix Force]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays with this trope; the main character, Luffy, will not kill anyone, but it's not out of niceness. [[CruelMercy He just thinks it's a worse punishment for them to live, and watch their dreams get shot down in flames by him and his crew]].
