** Used as the basis for an infamous LetsPlay, ''TheTerribleSecretOfAnimalCrossing'', in which Nook ''literally'' enslaves the narrator [[spoiler:for [[BodyHorror unspeakable purposes]]]]. Most of the other portrayals of Nook either fall into his MERELY being an autocratic slum lord, mob kingpin, and black marketeer (the rest usually paint him as the nicest landlord you will ever have).

* Main/LuckyLuke: Used with many of the desperadoes Lucky Luke encounters in order to explain their notoriety. If rumours are to be believed Phil de Fer, the original Dalton gang, Joss Jamon and most specifically Pat Poker and Billy the Kid have quite a remarkable body count. In Billy's case it is said that many of his victims were fellow criminals and Luke himself calls him worse than the Daltons (the new ones at least).

** Speaking of Apostles, Rosine gets a fairly straightforward one in a flashback at the end of the Lost Children arc. We see the very moments leading up to her sacrifice of [[spoiler:her parents]] but it ends once the Beherit activates.

When a character is explicitly known (but not often actually ''shown'') to have committed acts that would otherwise lead to a MoralEventHorizon moment, but who are either discreetly downplayed or conveniently not discussed. This is both to avoid scaring the audience and, presumably, to allow people to continue to like these characters (in a genuine way, not the "so deranged it's interesting" way) without being seen as a monster.

* Justified in ''LayerCake''; the protagonist is a cocaine dealer responsible for getting an awful lot of product out onto the streets; but he himself finds the end result of his work to be distasteful, and deliberately steers clear of cocaine users. A more sympathetic example than most, as he it's implied that because of this he's making plans to leave the business behind him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', [[spoiler:Anakin begins to strangle a defiant Poggle the Lesser using the Force. The rest of the interrogation is never seen, but when Anakin comes back to the other Jedi with important information, they pointedly wonder just what Anakin did to get their uncooperative prisoner to talk.]] Keep in mind that so far, the series has distinctly avoided Anakin's dark side.

* [[BloodKnight Kenpachi]] gets a textbook one in ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. It's stated that instead of going through the normal political channels to become a squad Captain, he challenged and [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority killed an existing captain]] in front of 200 witness. While this is supposed to add to his {{Badass}} legend, the fact that we don't know anything about the victim or the particulars of the fight could have very well have made this a [[BaitTheDog seriously disturbing]] KickTheDog moment.
