* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Dartz from the DOMA arc reached his Moral Event Horizion when he [[spoiler:started killing off the protagonists]], but the most horrifying example and crossing of his MEH is [[spoiler:When the identities of the Mirror soldiers are revealed to be everyone's favorite characters: Joey, Mai, Yugi, and Pegasus. From then on, he used them as frikin' HUMAN SHIELDS.]] This was a true Kick The Dog moment to, not only the [[spoiler:remaining]] protagonists, but the entire fanbase as well; a few people are said to have broken down crying because of this act.

*** His treatment of the Kaiba brothers might have already put him over the line: [[spoiler: he has the kidnapped Mokuba's soul stolen... and when Kaiba and Yugi (plus Yugi's friends) reach for him, he taunts Kaiba by showing the Card where Mokuba's spirit was stored, then ''had Mokuba's EmptyShell of a body bring him his deck''. And then he [[CurbStompBattle defeated Kaiba]] (while cheating with his Millenium Eye) and de-souled ''him''!]] Even Yugi was all "ThisIsUnforgivable"!

* Light Yagami of Manga/DeathNote arguably crosses the MEH early in the story when he [[spoiler:kills the FBI agents]]. Afterwards, his murders just get more and more extreme until [[spoiler:after [[{{Yandere}} Kiyomi Takada]], his former girlfriend and now follower, kills Mello. She calls him from Mello's truck, naked, crying and terrified. He coldly tells her to continue writing as many names as she can, and hangs up. Then, as the task force is driving to find her, Light writes on the piece in his watch that the poor girl dies ''by burning to death'', so that all the evidence is destroyed.]] This act of utter heartless cruelty cost Light all but the [[DracoInLeatherPants most diehard]] of his fanbase.

** 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]]. When Demigawa is subsequently killed by Light's subordinate Mikami, even the Kira Task Force side with Kira in doing so, unanimously agreeing that if ''anyone'' deserved to be killed by Kira, he did.

* Averted by Pino in ''Manga/GunslingerGirl''. Right when he's about to kill Aurora for walking in on his plans one too many times, [[spoiler:Flanca warns him to refrain from doing so.]] Played straight, however, by Ski Mask Guy in chapter 83 just for being the only one present besides Jose when Henrietta's bad memories of her family's death return because of him and Jose's the only one left alive present. [[spoiler:This leads to both Henrietta and Jose dying within minutes of the resulting FreakOut, if not seconds.]] Dante himself is well beyond the MEH by the time he offed [[spoiler:Enrica, her parents, and Jean's girlfriend]] with a single car bomb, and it's also implied due to Ski Mask Guy's presence at the Battle of Turin that Dante was also behind [[spoiler:the murder of Henrietta's family]]. Oh, and as a final "fuck you" to the Agency? [[spoiler:Only Rico [[ShootTheHostage shooting her]] [[HumanShield own fratello]] could finally put an end to Dante once and for all.]]

* One of the main villains of Anime/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.

*** And Enrico Maxwell's got one too! When he started slaughtering the innocent people of London even his trusted Alexander Anderson considered him to be an absolute lunatic.

*** And ** Enrico Maxwell's got one too! When he started slaughtering the innocent people of Maxwell crosses it with his orders upon arriving with his forces in London. Not content with merely fighting [[ThoseWackyNazis Millennium]], Maxwell, already slipping quite badly sanity-wise, sentences everyone in London even to "DEATH! DEATH! DEATH! DEATH!" and orders his trusted men to slaughter every Protestant and other civilian in London. This horrific move was enough to turn his former mentor and most loyal agent, Alexander Anderson, against him, to the point that when [[spoiler:Alucard unleashed his full power]], Anderson considered him took it upon himself to be an absolute lunatic.[[spoiler:shatter the glass cage protecting Maxwell from Alucard's ravening familiars, leading to a well-deserved KarmicDeath]].

** At this point it would probably be best to create an entier ''subpage'' just to list off the people who crossed the Moral Event Horizon, as the list will sure keep growing as the series goes on.
