** There's a hilarious story connected to this: when the ability to actually pummel characters hand-to-hand was implemented, developers and testers started off by having Homer beat up Marge. They made a rule, though, to not Creator/MattGroening see anyone do that. That was quickly tossed out the window when they found out that the very first thing Matt did when he first tested out the game was to literally kick her from the house to the Kwik-E-Mart.

*** It was also his only choice for victory when faced with overwhelming odds. "The enemy gate is down" indeed.

* ''WebVideo/{{Petscop}}'': Paul does some morally ambiguous actions with the pets:
** Paul deceives Amber to catch her.
** He plucks a sapient daisy, under which NLM Care rests on a separate floor. When the daisy no longer has petals, Care as a result has a disfigured face. Also this action is AllForNothing; he's unable to catch NLM Care.
** Later on he is able to catch NLM Care, and the text box specifies that if he loves her she can become Care A, even if the love is a lie. He abandons her at the children's library, only to recatch her.

* A major BerserkButton for [=PksparxxDathotneSS=] is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjOmdsTm0N8 having to leave Yoshi behind]] in any installment of ''Francise/SuperMarioBrothers'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACYtR6DI5Mg especially if you need to use him as a springboard]] for a DoubleJump by throwing him away (which has become MemeticMutation in of itself). He has gone as far as to start a campaign called "No Yoshi Left Behind" [[SeriousBusiness protesting this injustice]] and even designed and sold a t-shirt over it. And one thing that is ''sure'' to get PK pissed in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioMaker'' is to force him to abandon a Yoshi with a level you present him with just to get his goat. He will actually abort the level if it comes to that. And the one time he didn't, he lived to regret it... because winning the level by abandoning a Yoshi led to him finishing the level in a manner [[VideoGameCrueltyPunishment that forced a Yoshi to be dropped into LAVA.]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_brDHcSPwo Take a gander.]]

* In the first issue of 'Loki; Agent Of Asgard' Hawkeye chose to play a fishing video game. Somehow he ended up in a malfunctioning helicopter, pursued by the American army. What's worse is that this kind of nonsense is common when he plays video games. Hawkeye is just that terrible.

Added DiffLines:

* Deliberately averted in ''VideoGame/{{Subnautica}}'', in part because of the creator's distress at a recent school shooting: the player character has '''no''' weapons of any sort, other than the distinctly non-lethal Propulsion & Repulsion Cannons[[note]]use jets of force to non-lethally "push" creatures away[[/note]] and Stasis Rifle[[note]]freezes enemies in place temporarily so you can escape[[/note]]. The playerbase is notably split on this issue, pointing out that this leaves the player character with no defense other than escape against the abundance of very aggressive predatory creatures in the game.


Added DiffLines:

* Invoked and deconstructed in the Video Game Violence episode of ''Series/PennAndTellerBullshit''. In particular, at one point in the episode, viewers are asked to imagine a world where videogames are the sport of choice, and then people try to introduce UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball -- a sport that involves ''real'' violent physical contact and where people ''actually'' get broken bones, cuts, bruises, concussions, and even have been known to '''die'''.
