* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': One of the soldiers Rei encounters during the invasion of the [[HomeBase Geofront]] specifically chose perimeter patrols because he thought he wouldn't encounter and have to kill one of the teenaged pilots. [[spoiler:Aki, being included in the kill order due to simply being near Rei, ups the ante.]] He repeatedly refuses to shoot her, even after being threatened to be court-martialed by his superior, and when the latter decides to do it himself, he finally opens fire... on him. He unfortunately isn't fast enough to eliminate his remaining squad mate before suffering the same fate.

** In "Ring of Fired", this also applies to Saxton Hale, although he's okay with ordering his employees to hurt children in his stead. Unfortunately, they won't, [[spoiler:even if the fate of Mann Co. hangs in the balance. Grey Mann uses this against him to wrest control of Mann Co. from him.]]

Grey Mann uses this against him to wrest control of Mann Co. from him.]]]] In his case, it's more out of the fact that children cannot put up a proper fight rather than any moral compunctions.

* A hilarious example happens in ''Raiders of the Lost Ark''. Franchise/IndianaJones is in a local hash bar, he was inches away from killing Belloq at the cost of his own life when armed Arab Mercenaries have their rifles pointed at him. What stopped them from firing was when Sallah's kids entered the bar to shield him while taking him out. They found it amusing and spared his life.

* ''Literature/TheSecretGarden'': While Maggie Smith's Medlock certainly threatens to box Mary's ears, she never actually strikes her. She slaps Martha, but she's old enough to not be considered a child.

* ThePunisher: Played straight with Frank, ''but it depends on the situation.'' He'd never hurt a child and always plans his attacks very carefully so that no innocents are harmed. Once, when he thought he was responsible for the death of a small child, he had a gun to his head and was ready to pull the trigger when he saw evidence that convinced him that he could not possibly have done it. Another time, he had a clear shot at a teenage hood who had just won parole from juvenile hall, but upon seeing him do something charitable (confirming what the parole officer had told the judge) he changed his mind and let him live. ''However'', if you're a gang banger or a child soldier and you start shooting at him, his reflexes are going to take over and he's not going to ask for your ID before returning fire. He won't lose any sleep over it afterwards, either.

* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Korgan Bloodaxe]] from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate 2: Shadows of Amn'' is a psychotic dwarf who has no problem with murder, rape, theft or genocide. He's racist against just about anyone, sexually harasses the female party members and always, always suggests solving problems with his axe. But he won't harm children, and describes a man who beats his daughter as "not worth the spittle on his boots".

* ''SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}'' the CrazyAwesome (and just plain [[AxCrazy crazy]]) Merc' with a Mouth still has a few lines he won't cross. One of them is hurting kids. In ''ComicBook/XForce'', he is the ''only'' member of the team to openly declare that [[spoiler:killing the child incarnation of Apocalypse]] was a borderline MoralEventHorizon for the team as a whole and that he for one is unhappy about it.

Added DiffLines:

* Italian mob boss Fanciullo Cattivo of the ''Franchise/{{Shadowchasers}}'' franchise has this as one of the most important rules for anyone working for him, and has put out large bounties on the heads of known human traffickers who target children. ''FanFic/ShadowchasersConspiracy'' suggests he may have sworn an oath in the past to protect children.

* In ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'', when the kids get stuck in a prison riot during a field trip, one of the kids ask if the prisoners watching them are going to rape them, their reactions are pretty much "We're bad guys, [[EvenEvilHasStandards but even we're not]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards that]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards bad]]."

* Young Selfdemonstrating/{{Loki}} found (for their great surprise) that they're this trope now. They had the perfect plan and would get away with it too but it involved driving [[Comicbook/YoungAvengers Wiccan]] to suicide and they just didn't have the heart to go through with it. [[Comicbook/LokiAgentOfAsgard Later]] the Angelic army learnt this the hard way, when Loki promptly disposed of them after they refused to take the LastChanceToQuit offer at the end of a speech that pressed at almost tedious lengths that what they intended to do involved ''baby killing''.
