** Cersei rockets across it when she [[spoiler:commits mass murder by blowing the Great Sept of Baelor sky-high with wildfire, incinerating the Sparrows (including Lancel, who [[DyingMomentOfAwesome tried in vain to prevent it]]), the High Sparrow, the Small Council, Margaery, Loras, Mace, and many, many innocent smallfolk, ''some of whom were nowhere near the Sept''. The act also has an indirect casualty: Tommen, her son, who [[DrivenToSuicide dives out of a window in despair]]]]. If that act isn't enough, just before [[spoiler:Tommen's suicide]], she [[spoiler:tortures Septor Unella by first waterboarding her with wine then leaving Gregor Clegane, a psychopathic serial rapist who himself is well across the Horizon, to do whatever to her]].

* The ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' character Ralph Moreno was a borderline AxCrazy crook with a huge case of ChronicBackStabbingDisorder from the start. But, he hits a new low after an elderly widow takes him in, after he escapes prison with nothing but his underwear, only to mistake him for her dead husband. Ralph's first instinct is to take complete advantage of her, by asking for "their" ATM number, driving around in her dead husband's car, looting the medicine cabinet, and generally using her confusing to mooch off of her.

** Gideon Malick subjecting his own HYDRA men to the Terrigen fish oil pills without them knowing so either those who were InHuman would have powers or those who didn't would die, at least in-series. But as awful as ''that'' is, nearly having the nuclear missile destroy New York in ''The Avengers'' while on the World Council puts his crossing long before he was even on the show.

** If Stannis doesn't cross the line for assassinating his own brother Renly, he definitely crosses it when he has [[spoiler: Shireen - his only child and the heir to his royal claim - burnt alive at the stake to curry favour with the Lord of Light.]]

** Most people in Westeros view Jaime as having crossed it when he [[BodyguardBetrayal broke his oath as a Kingsgaurd knight and killed Aerys Targaryen]] during Robert's rebellion, an action which earned him the derisive nickname of Kingslayer. [[spoiler: He later admits to Brienne the real reason he broke his oath to protect the King: Aerys was planning on burning King's Landing to the ground rather than let Robert and the rebels depose him.]]



** Stannis crosses it in the eyes of Renly's supporters like Loras Tyrell and Brienne when he has Melisandre conjure the shadow creature to murder him. He later admits that he feels he crossed the line as well.

** In the eyes of Robb Stark and the Northern lords, Theon crosses it when he executes Bran and Rickon Stark after capturing Winterfell for the Greyjoys. [[spoiler: Of course, in reality he had two orphan boys murdered and tarred to pass off as Bran and Rickon, in order to keep the people of Winterfell in line. Which might be even worse.]]
** [[spoiler: The Freys and Boltons cross the Moral Event Horizon when they stage the Red Wedding, murdering Robb, Catelyn, Talisa, and the majority of the Northern lords. This is particularly egregious of the Freys, according to the customs of Westeros, since the Starks and their bannermen were their guests who had received food under their roof.]]

** Walt crosses the line for his whole family in "Ozymandias", when [[spoiler: they learn that Hank is dead and assume Walt killed him]]. Upon [[spoiler: phoning Walt Jr. in "Granite State", it is made clear Walt Jr can't be convinced otherwise and never wants to see his father again.]] In "Felina", [[spoiler: he is seen talking to Skyler, who doesn't seem to mind him talking to her to say a last goodbye but still thinks he killed Hank.]]
