* In ''Film/TheRock'', [[BigBad Frye]] and [[TheDragon Darrow]] were bad enough [[PsychoForHire Psychos for Hire]] already, but [[EstablishingCharacterMoment their moment was defined]] when they [[spoiler:provoke a gunfight with the Navy [=SEALs=] in the shower room and kill all of them.]]

As put by Darrow, they are mercenaries now, so if they want to get paid, they need to make sure the government sees that they weren't weak.

* ''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.

** Similarly, Palpatine crosses the MoralEventHorizon in RevengeOfTheSith, with "Order 66", which involves having his troops massacre the Jedi. You see various Jedi working WITH the troops, only for their trust to be betrayed when said troops take out their guns and begin blasting the Jedi away.

*** Magneto himself has one when he shuts Charles out in favor of [[spoiler: killing Shaw]]. Charles has been trying to temper Erik's anger this entire time; Erik shows that he prefers revenge. Charles hangs a lampshade.
---> '''Charles:''' Erik, there will be no turning back from this!
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':\\\
If Erik hadn't crossed it before, it's definitely when [[spoiler:he orders the Sentinels under his control to "do what [they] were built to do". Not only is he willing to murder other mutants, he also just ''doesn't care'' beyond his moral agenda. Granted, he did do some morally questionable stuff in the earlier films (such as, for example, [[Film/X2XMenUnited turning Stryker's planned mutant genocide on humanity itself]]), but it's quite clear that he had mellowed considerably since 1973, and the fact that his future self is firmly with the good guys in this film only proves how much he'd matured morally over half a century and is most certainly no small miracle.]]\\\
The deaths of [[spoiler:the original Emma Frost, Angel, Azazel, and especially [[WouldHarmAChild Banshee]]]] end up pushing Trask over the MEH when it's revealed that [[spoiler:he murdered them and studied their remains to further his research on the Sentinels]].
