** Every single Guardian of Gloom cross this when they convince humans to give away their eide, which will doom them into eternity of torment in {{Hell Tartarus}} or put them in their darchs (evil parasitic soul-containing animals, which increase their magic powers and give them immortality they lost after betraying the God). No HeelFaceTurn is possible after that. [[spoiler: Even after aformentioned Ares got DeathEqualsRedemption, he still got stuck into Tartarus, though in far better mental shape than other killed Guardians of Gloom, and is deprived of torment; though he gets better later.]]

* [[OurDemonsAreDifferent The Guardian of Gloom]], Yaraat from ''Methodius Buslaev'' series of Russian write Dmitrii Emets, crossed this when he betrayed, Ares, his fellow Guardian of Gloom, God of War, who prevented him from killing by other Guardians, as he was a thief. When [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes Ares bore a child from human woman]] (and didn't take their [[OurSoulsAreDiffeeent eide]], as by Gloom's law), he got with them on the run. However, Guardians has found them and he summoned Yaraat to protect them, while he would chase them off. [[BitchInSheepsClothing Yaraat]] happily agreed to help them and wait till Ares arrive. When Ares returned, he found only the bodies of his family in the well near their house where they were hiding... It turned out that Yaraat threatened to kill both mother and her daughter but not before taking their souls (eide could be taken only with consent and humans can be killed by Guardians of the Gloom only if their eide are consented to be given away or if they attack demons) and then killed them. Worse, it's heavily implied [[ItAmusedMe he did this simply to mock Ares and torture him, making his former friend to chase him.]] This event turned him into ArchEnemy in Ares's eyes [[spoiler: and got killed by him in second book.]]

** When [[Characters/HarryPotterMinistryOfMagic Dolores Umbridge]] [[TyrantTakesTheHelm takes over]], she spends most of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' finding new and more creative ways to KickTheDog (usually Harry). For her moral event horizon, take your pick between when she forces Harry to write lines using an enchanted quill that repeatedly carves the words into his own hand, until it won't stop bleeding, her horribly cruel manner of dismissing Sybil Trelawney, burning down Hagrid's hut, with him inside, when she goes to fire '''him''' or sending several spells at an unarmed [=McGonagall=] when she tries to interfere with the previously mentioned burning of Hagrid's hut. She manages to get ''worse'' in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''.

* Achilles from the ''[[Literature/EndersGame Ender's Shadow]]'' series kills out of the most psychopathic need to prove his own superiority to his victims. He enters the Moral Event Horizon as soon as he kills Poke. But before he kills Poke, and to any character who doesn't know about his killings, he seems normal enough that the people worried about him killing someone appear to be the paranoid ones.
