* Dr. Katsuragi of ''SakuraGari'' is pretty fond of doing horrible things. In the backstory [[spoiler: he persuaded Souma (who was angry with his abusive stepmother, Sakurako) into wanting to kill her: he drugged Sakurako when she was taking a bath, took Souma there and told him to kill her as revenge for his abuse, and when Souma couldn't go through with it he grabbed Souma's hand, put the knife forcefully in it and forcibly made him cut Sakurako's wrists, effectively killing her. Then, he rapes Souma almost in the spot.]] When Souma confronts Katsuragi on his rape and torture of Masataka, Katsuragi denies the accusation and tries to seduce Souma. He acts uninterested and mentions Masataka's name, so Katsuragi actually grabs Souma by the throat and tries to strangle him. [[spoiler: And then [[KarmicDeath karma meets up with him]] [[HumiliationConga Spectacularly]].]]

* In MuhyoAndRoji, the final revelation that puts Teeki over the MoralEventHorizon is the revelation that he [[spoiler:was responsible for Enchu's mother's death, causing his StartOfDarkness and thus most of the conflict in the story]]. To a lesser extent, his responsibility for [[spoiler:Rio's mother dying]] also applies.

* ''HighschoolOfTheDead'' has quite a few, but some of the worst offenders are secondary and tertiary characters. One incident sees two {{Red Shirt}}s, Misuzu Ichijo and Toshimi Niki, running through the halls of their zombie-infested school, HoldingHands together and saying they'll survive together because they're BFFs. Not even 5 seconds later, [[TooDumbToLive Toshimi runs into a horde of zombies]] and begs Misuzu to pull her away from them, only to have her hand remorselessly pried off. As Misuzu watches Toshimi get devoured, [[KarmicDeath she stumbles back into ''another'' group of zombies behind her]], [[OffWithHerHead and her head is crushed just as quickly]]. Although in the anime, [[HeelFaceDoorSlam she may have regretted her action just before her own death]].

* One of the main villains of SonicX's third season is a Metarex commander named Black Narcissus, who is so fascinated by Sonic's speed and strength that he wants to learn their secrets, and to do just that, he sets up two Metarex prototypes, Silver and Gold, to test him. And as a special treat, he even knocks out Chris Thorndyke, then [[WouldHurtAChild captures and tortures him and Cosmo]] to use them as bait to lure Sonic to him in order to execute his plan to test him. The fact that he did such crap to children like Cosmo and Chris (who may be TheScrappy, but still doesn't deserve '''that''') leads to Sonic's UnstoppableRage [[RageBreakingPoint Breaking Point]] and triggers his transformation into his SuperpoweredEvilSide. It's a good thing Dr. Eggman and his followers came to help calm things down - not only does Eggman convince Sonic to cease his anger, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he even admits that he can't stand torturing people when he says to him, "It's one thing to take them prisoner and threaten them but when you actually hurt somebody, that's going too far."]] Damn... when the ''BigBad'' denounces your tactics to the protagonist, you know you've crossed the MEH.
* ''Manga/{{Soul Eater}}'': While she had committed some other terrible acts before this point, Medusa's Moral Event Horizon is generally cited as when she claimed that Crona, who she had been abusing and experimenting on for her plan to resurrect an Eldritch Abomination, is really her child; she doesn't get any better from there. Also, Giriko jumped over the line when he tried to rape Maka [[spoiler: in the book of Eibon]], when she's [[HeroicBSOD at her lowest point]]; previously, he was just another of the ineffectual minor villains.

* In ''Anime/HiSpeedJecy'', Cross Bismarck crosses at the end of the third episode when he [[spoiler:murders President Markham, much to the surprise of Jecy and Anita, who were trying to use the dictator as leverage against him]]. Jecy is quick to [[ThisIsUnforgivable denounce this act of backstabbing]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'':
** Hitomi Ishigami [[spoiler:virtually blowing up the whole school with a magic mirror toward the end of the first serialization. [[LaserGuidedKarma She gets her comeuppance yet again when she's arrested for the crime]]]]. Her motive for doing this was a revenge scheme against the Newspaper Club for exposing her plot to [[spoiler:turn the most beautiful female students into stone]] and use of modeling sessions as a pretense and getting her fired for it. So in other words, she [[spoiler:wrecked Yokai Academy]] out of spite toward just a few of the students. It's also arguable that she may have crossed it earlier when she schemed with the Security Committee and Kuyou to murder Tsukune for the same reason.
*** Kuyou himself crosses it with his interpretation of the school rule "No humans allowed" as "Death to all filthy human spies!". Not only is he willing to commit murder based on his own twisted interpretation of a school rule, he's also completely willing to risk the lives of the existing members of the Security Committee by having Tsukune murdered. To make his mindset ''much'' worse, [[spoiler:if Tsukune died and the Security Committee was eventually caught, Fairy Tail would've won.]]
** Kanade Kamiya has a lot of potential crossing points, but it's most likely that he crossed it by [[spoiler:killing Marin Kawamoto's husband ''in front of her'']]. To make masters worse, [[spoiler: he had no reason to kill said husband or any other humans he did at the time; he went on a mass-murdering rampage, in his own words, ''simply to pass the time and clear his head'']].
** Gyokuro Shuzen is a nasty one, and her sadistic treatment of Moka just a chapter before was bad, but when she, without a single ounce of hesitation or regret, orders Kahlua to kill her own beloved little sister Kokoa? And remember that Gyokuro is Kokoa's birth mother as well, and Kahlua was so horrified by the order that she literally ''begged'' Gyokuro to change her mind.
** It's possible that Hokuto and Kiria may have crossed it during the festival arc. Hokuto chains up all of the harem (with the exception of Moka who had been kidnapped) inside a barrier created by Mikogami's rosary so that they don't stop him. Tsukune tries to fight him but he keeps getting knocked down and beaten to a bloody pulp ''right in front of his friends''. Kiria's was when he had Moka. He told her that he would let her go free if she removed her rosary by herself (back then only Tsukune could do that). To motivate her, he gave her a live camera feed on Hokuto beating up on Tsukune. Basically it boils down to, "Do the impossible bitch, or your boyfriend is gonna be paste."
** Ultimately subverted with Lady Oyakata; she seems to have already crossed it by her own admission, but Ruby, her former disciple, refuses to believe it even after Oyakata critically wounds her during the boss fight and even saves Oyakata from certain death when her binding spell backfires on her. Oyakata repays the favor by [[DeathEqualsRedemption using the last of her life force to sufficiently heal Ruby]].
** If, after all he had done and what was revealed about him, you still had a small shred of hope for Miyabi Fujisaki, that went out the window the moment [[spoiler:he murdered Outer Moka in cold blood by destroying Moka's rosary]].
** Nagare Kano is already well past the MEH by the time he appears, but blackmailing a girl into bailing on the Newspaper Club for him when they're in a deadline? ''Putting the Newspaper Club's hard work at risk over your lust!?'' Calling this Kodak fiend a pervert at this point would be an ''[[InsultToRocks insult to perverts everywhere]]''.

** Hitoshi Demegawa at first seemed to be a {{Slimeball}} TV executive [[IfItBleedsItLeads cashing in on Kira]]. Then he [[spoiler:leads a riot on SPK headquarters, with the intention of killing every member of the group]].
* Vamdemon/Myostismon was the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' series's first ''[[BigBad Really]]'' BigBad. If his string of KickTheDog moments - he tortures and kills his {{Mooks}}, he captured Tailmon/Gatomon when she set out looking for her partner on her own and whipped her into a ChildSoldier, he has his followers invade the entire city of Tokyo and kidnap its children to weed out the eighth ChosenOne, and that's for starters - don't gradually nudge him over the MoralEventHorizon, then Wizardmon's [[TearJerker child-scarring]] death - [[HeroicSacrifice taking an attack]] meant to kill Gatomon and [[TheCutie Kari]], by the way - certainly does. It makes it downright beautiful when the fact that Vamdemon just made it [[ItsPersonal extra personal]] to Tailmon and, by extension, Hikari triggers Tailmon's evolving into Angewomon and impaling him with an arrow. Even that doesn't stop him, however, and he gets [[FromBadToWorse even worse]].

*** His very first act was to use his shape shifting abilities to attack and nearly kill Kikyo while posing as Inuyasha, then pose as Kikyo and make Inuyasha think Kikyo was trying to kill ''him'', all leading to Inuyasha getting pinned to a tree and Kikyo dying hating Inuyasha, which would briing massive trouble when she [[CameBackWrong was revived]].

** Jedite crossed it earlier in the same season with his attempt on Tuxedo Kamen's life in his own last episode. Just as bad as Zoicite's aforementioned attempt, but what makes this one stand out is that he proceeds to taunt the Sailor Senshi about it. It's also an InUniverse example, as instead of doing as he had predicted, the Sailor Senshi promptly make their disgust known, both [[YouMonster verbally]]''and'' [[CarFu physically]].[[spoiler: The Shitenou may not qualify however having been brainwashed by the Queen and not in real control over their actions.]]
