** He's breaking out all the stops in ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'', but one particular stand out point is giving the hyenas, that he and Harley raised, rabies. These are pets that he and Harley personally raised since they were babies! All this to spite Harley for not waiting and praying for his return (never mind that he didn't leave any indication that he was going to) and for getting together with Deadshot.

* This will come as a surprise to some people, but ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' and his friend Patrick qualify in one of their Nick Magazine comics. In it, after they discover a gigantic bowl of ice cream, they find themselves in another world with people made of ice-cream related food that look [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext just like the duo and their friends]] [[AlternateUniverse back in Cikini Bottom]]. The dessert people welcome the two in open arms, which the two greatly return. [[spoiler: And by greatly return we mean GO BATSHIT CRAZY AND [[SugarApocalypse EAT EVERYONE]]!! We don't actually see it, but we do see Spongebob and Patrick's psychotic faces as they attack...and the very next panel is them, incredibly fat, and the whole town of ice cream reduced to a lifeless desert.]] JUST. WOW.

** In the Ultimate Universe Magneto crossed it for good when he brings about the events of ''Ultimatum'' and kills millions of innocent people, including numerous ''mutants''. Just to make it clear to the audience that he's too far gone to be redeemed, he callously kills Multi Man when Multi Man tries to stand up to him. His actions are so atrocious that Cyclops snaps and breaks his no killing rule for the first and only time and blows his head off out of disgust.

* {{Marvel}} rogue [[JekyllAndHyde Mr. Hyde]] was always a violent, brutal thug of a villain, but his true MEH crossing would have to be in Avengers #275 and #276, when he beat the Avengers' butler Jarvis half to death while Jarvis was tied up and helpless. Hyde did this just to hurt ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, who could only watch as the horrible scene played out.

** For starters, the kickstarter of the whole plot: Joker [[spoiler: kidnaps Lois and links the trigger to a nuke set in Metropolis to her heartbeat. He then uses Kryptonite-laced Joker gas to make Superman think he's fighting Doomsday when in reality...it was Lois. The kicker? Lois was 'pregnant'. Not only that. Joker said he decided to go after Superman because it was "Easy mode" for him and he was tired of losing to Batman.]] Joker's actions were Superman's StartOfDarkness.

* VandalSavage, being an immortal villain in DC Comics continuity, has had several millennia and hundreds, if not possibly thousands, of opportunities to cross it, with just a few of the examples we know about listed on his character page. Of those listed, however, perhaps his most disturbing MEH-crossing candidate is [[spoiler:setting up his daughter Scandal to be raped because [[IWantGrandkids he wants an heir]]]].

* In ''StarWarsLegacy'', [[BigBad Darth Krayt]], in a fit of temper after losing an important shipyard, orders ten percent of the Mon Calamari species executed on the spot and the rest imprisoned in camps to be worked to death. Even the other Sith thought it was a bit much. As for the reader...

* In ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', Superboy-Prime was presented as a confused teenager with powers he couldn't control lashing out at people who didn't understand him... until he lost it and killed some CListFodder, whereupon he turned into a near-demonic CardCarryingVillain, excusing his actions by claiming to be "better than those losers". Superboy-Prime picked a fight with the Conner Kent Superboy and got jumped by the full Teen Titans roster. He lost control of his own strength when he fought back, killing some of them and provoking a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment. At that point the Flashes drag him into the Speed Force, where they imprison him for an unknown length of time. When next we see him, he threatens to kill even his friends and allies to get what he wants. And he's ''terrified'' of all Flashes. DC has never explained what they did to him.

Added DiffLines:

** It wasn't just Daken. This storyline involved Sabretooth manipulating Daken into abusing and torturing the teenage clone of {{Apocalypse}}, who, again, was a thirteen-year-old boy. Note, the only reason Sabretooth did any of this was to screw with Wolverine. He risked creating another {{Apocalypse}} and destroying the world as we know it just to screw with Wolverine.
