Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', the Hellfire Massacre is considered one in-universe for Shuos Jedao, and understandably so. He was supposed to take his men and subjugate the last stronghold of the rebels. Instead, he slaughtered everyone on ''both sides'', totalling at over one million people altogether, some of whom he killed with a weapon that [[EyeScream melts your eyes]], while others he executed himself. Out-of-universe, just what exactly happened at Hellspin and Jedao's motivations are ambiguous enough to keep him away from the line, at least thus far.

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', the final book sees two villains go past the point of no return.
** Benehime, whose actions up to that point can be justified by sheer exhaustion with the state of the universe, simple criminal negligence and inevitable insanity, [[spoiler:stabs her brother in the back with Nico's demonseed, having let it grow big enough to become a weapon, so that she may destroy the world]]. As Eli points out, this was planned and premeditated.
** Sara, when it's revealed that she's [[spoiler:abusing hundred of spirits to keep the Relay working]], and not only does she completely not care about all the hurt she's causing, she practically laughs in Banage's face when he tries to impress on her how vile her actions are and tells him there's nothing to care about.

** 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.]]
