** 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 he 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 McGonagal when she tries to interfere with the previously mentioned burning of Hagrid's hut. She manages to get ''worse'' in ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheDeathlyHallows Deathly Hallows]]''.

*** Fëanor, after seizing the ships of Teleri and causing the Kinslaying of Alqualondë, which leads the Noldor to be cursed.
*** In the Akallabêth, after the Silmarillion but before the events of the LordOfTheRings, Sauron crosses it when he engineers the destruction of Númenor by corrupting its king; like Morgoth, after this action he can never again take an appearance that is not evil.

And that's without even considering that in all of Melkor's atrocities he had a great part in, and continued to breed orcs long after his master's downfall. In short almost everything he did, from the beginning of time would be a line crossing for lesser creatures.

* In Literature/{{Overenskommelser}} by Creator/SimonaAhrnstedt, all three villains have crossed it by the end:
** Rosenschiöld crosses it when he rapes and nearly kills Beatrice on her wedding night.
** It's hard to tell when Wilhelm and Edvard crossed it because they have so many potential moments: beating Beatrice nearly to death, locking her in a room for a week with no food, impregnating a minor, abandoning her, and showing no remorse when she dies after an abortion, and forcing Beatrice into marriage with Rosenschiöld, despite knowing she would suffer. They definately crossed it though when they showed Beatrice no sympathy after she was raped and nearly killed on her wedding night.

*** Considering all the shit the Dursleys put Harry through all his life, for such petty
reasons, the line has been crossed long ago, to the extent that Harry who suffers from ChronicHeroSyndrome was seriously wondering if he would save them from Voldemort, in case they were kidnapped. From Harry this means a lot..

** Lucius Malfoy was a willing accomplice in many of the Death Eaters atrocities, but the moment where [[spoiler: he slipped Tom's diary to Ginny, knowing that it would kill Muggle-born children]] he proved to be capable of great vileness of his own accord. Also he participated in the sadistic torture of Muggles during the Quidditch World Cup.

*** This is a plot point for how other characters treat [[AcePilot Baron Soontir Fel]] in the XWingSeries, who [[DefectorFromDecadence left]] almost a year after the Emperor died, and who had been the Empire's most dangerous pilot in that year. Wedge Antilles [[EasilyForgiven trusted him instantly]], and a pilot who had survived being shot down by him similarly welcomed him, but almost everyone else either was slow to warm up to him or outright refused to trust him. He killed too many Rebel pilots and didn't see what kind of monster he served until far too late.

* In ''[[Literature/WaysideSchool Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger]]'', [[spoiler:Mr. Gorf]] stole the kids' voices using his third nostril. He crossed it when he used Rondi's voice to tell her how much she hated her. He does the same to Joe's mother and would have called Leslie's as well had Miss Mush not intervened.
