** In the Spaniard Spanish dub the bit about the almost complete destruction of the Cassiopeian fleet was unfortunately lost. While the camera pans over the wreckage of Cassiopeian warships, the Great Computer simply mentions with scorn how unbelievable is that the Cassiopeians refuse to accept the evidence.

** The Italian dub has Peter, a member of [[TheFederation Omega]]'s SpacePolice, provide another one as he assists at the battle, concluding with "This is what happens when your leader is a madman". Given that the GloriousLeader of Cassiopeia, general Pest, is one of the best examples of AlwaysChaoticEvil in fiction, who dared to leave Omega only because he was sure the Humanoids were on ''his'' side and declared war on them just before they were supposed to deliver him a PlanetKiller (in fact ''he'' caused the Humanoids to be a threat, convincing them that [[WellIntentionedExtremist they had to rule on flesh and blood sentients to protect them from themselves]] when he approached them) and had [[DefiedTrope refused to]] [[EnemyMine rejoin Omega to fight the common enemy when the Humanoids revealed their true colours]], [[{{Understatement}} he has a point]].

* In ''Literature/HarryPotter and the Deathly Hallows'', Voldemort says at the battle of Hogwarts that he hates to see magical blood spilled because it is such a waste. (And given the population of wizards in the Harry Potter universe, it ''is a waste!''. Mainly because he wants to conscript any witches or wizards still breathing into being Death Eaters, [[MindRape like it or not]].)

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell has this attitude about Mark Smeaton, a slightly irritating but ultimately harmless musician in Anne Boleyn's inner circle whom Cromwell targets as the way to bring her down for adultery and treason. Mark had worked for Cromwell's mentor Cardinal Wolsey, and Cromwell thinks that if he'd hired the boy into his own household (as he had with a number of Wolsey's other displaced servants) he could have made him into a useful man with self-respect instead of a perpetual boy hoping for scraps of attention at the queen's door. But their mutual disdain back then precluded it; oh well.

Thomas Cromwell Cromwell, while dealing with the prophesying nun [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Barton Elizabeth Barton]], feels that she was looking for attention than anything else, was probably abused, and that she was [[UnwittingPawn unfairly exploited]] by the monks, the Poles, and the Courtenays without realizing the consequences of her actions. When doing the paperwork to have her executed and her paltry assets seized, he provides her the bribe she'll need so that the hangman will let her die quickly.
