** In ''Film/{{Riddick}}'', Santana's crossing point comes when he murders Riddick's pet right in front of him. Sure, he's done quite a bit of malicious stuff before that point, including coldly shooting a DisposableWoman within five minutes of his landing, but murdering the poor thing in front of Riddick had no purpose other than to mentally torture his quarry after capturing him. He didn't need to go after the poor thing, he just did it ForTheEvulz!

* ''Film/TheJungleBook2016'' has Shere Khan confront Akela and the wolf pack about if Mowgli was gone or not. Akela says that yes, Mowgli is going back to the man village. In response, Shere Khan...[[spoiler:just goes ahead and kills him]], hoping to goad Mowgli into fighting him for revenge. Whatever sympathy Shere Khan had for what humans did to him, it's cost him some of that.

* Warden Drumgoole in ''Film/LockUp'' crosses it by transferring Frank Leone into his prison and trying to keep him locked up beyond his sentence for the sole purpose of getting back at him for humiliating him all those years ago. Drumgoole is only motivated by petty revenge, and if that motivation alone isn't enough for you, then wait until you see what methods he uses to try to provoke and abjectly humiliate Leone...

** Chink Weber crosses it after many petty torments of Frank Leone when he murders [[spoiler:First Base]] on the Warden's orders. Until that point Leone had been avoiding active resistance, but this pushes him over the edge to personally fight Weber in the prison yard.

** [[spoiler: The First Order crosses it with Starkiller Base destroying the Hosnian System; killing all the inhabitants and destroying the Resistance Fleet in the process. It qualifies as an In-Universe one as well; as Leia feels the pain of all the deaths in the New Republic and convinces Finn to officially join the Resistance forces after leaving the First Order.]]

* In ''Film/ThePrincessBride'', [[EvilPrince Prince Humperdinck]] crosses when he cranks the LifeDrain machine [[UpToEleven up to 50]] to [[MurderTheHypotenuse torture his romantic rival Westley to death]]. Even [[TheDragon Count Rugen]], who invented the machine in the first place, [[EvenEvilHasStandards thought that was a bit much]].
--> '''Humperdinck:''' You truly love each other, and so you might have been truly happy. Not one couple in a century has that chance, no matter what the storybooks say... And so I think no man in a century will suffer as greatly as you will.

*** One Gotham police officer crosses it when, after Blake tells him that Bane's nuke will go off anyway very soon, [[spoiler:he callously destroys the bridge Blake and a school bus full of children are trying to cross. Never mind that he was JustFollowingOrders, destroying that bridge was completely unnecessary and, on top of that, endangered numerous innocent lives. No wonder Blake called him and the other guards "sons of bitches" and threw his badge into the river just after Batman dragged the nuke out of harm's way]].
