* Many, MANY, characters cross this line in the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series, especially [[EvilDiva Courtney]] [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Gears]], [[VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked Gleeman Vox]], and [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime Cassiopeia]]. One character, [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Emperor Percival Tachyon]], has been over this line since his own BIRTH, because his species are AlwaysChaoticEvil.

* Many, MANY, characters cross this line This is quite a common occurrence in the ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' series, especially [[EvilDiva Courtney]] [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Gears]], [[VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked games.
** The first game's BigBad, Chairman Drek, has the intention of creating a new planet for his race by stealing parts from others because their homeworld of Orxon is badly poluted. As we find out at the end, [[spoiler:Drek ''himself'' had polluted the planet so he could sell homes to his race on his artificial planet... and he intends to do this ''again'']]. In-universe, the moment where Ratchet finally considers Drek as having crossed the line is when [[spoiler:Drek intends to destroy Veldin for its orbit]].
** In ''Up Your Arsenal'', a musical video of Courtney Gears singing about her, genocidal hatred of organic life forms is found in one of Dr. Nefarious' labs. She would only tell Ratchet and Clank what she knows of his plans if she guest stars in a ''Secret Agent Clank'' episode. After filming, she [[{{Sadist}} sadistically]] kidnaps Clank, sends Tyhrranods to kill Ratchet, captures Skidd and turns him into a robot. And when Ratchet finally tracks her down, she fights him with a sadist pleasure. And if that is not enough, [[spoiler:she even helps lure Ratchet as well as Captain Qwark into Nefarious' trap in the Zeldrin Starport that almost gets them both killed]]. Talk about sadism.

Gleeman Vox]], Vox of ''Deadlocked'' runs a major criminal organization with Ace Hardlight as his [[TheDragon Number 2]], and [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime Cassiopeia]]. One character, [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Emperor Percival Tachyon]], has been heroes kidnapped all over the universe and forced to fight to the death on television. Note that two of these heroes were ''teenage girls'', too! But if all this mass kidnapping isn't enough to cross the line, [[spoiler:him blowing up the [=DreadZone arena=] with everyone inside, all for ratings, while he watches from the sidelines]], definitely ''is''.
*** Ace Hardlight crosses the line when [[spoiler:he shots Big Al from behind]].
** As they are AlwaysChaoticEvil, all Cragmites are beyond
this line since upon birth. However, Emperor Tachyon, the BigBad of ''Tools of Destruction'', crosses this line [[spoiler:by waging genocide against the lombaxes out of anger for them banishing his own BIRTH, because his species are AlwaysChaoticEvil.race. Oh, and some of the lombaxes ''raised him'']]. Tachyon's subsequent iron-fisted rule over Polaris has him cross the line so many times (one line at the Imperial Fight Festival implies that he murdered an entire orphanage full of children), only IRIS would know the exact amount of times he crossed it.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'': Most anything Desperado and World Marshall are allowed to do is this, but what really sets them up is kidnapping kids off the street, removing their brains and putting them through horrific VR training to turn them into cyborg supersoldiers. Sundowner's EstablishingCharacterMoment with his brutal murder of N'mani and gloating about it.

** And don't forget the many various Disney villains throughout the series, though very special mentions go to [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lady Tremaine, her two daughters,]] and [[Film/TronLegacy Clu]], all of whom are much worse than in their source films.
*** The former three all cross the line when they outright try to murder Cinderella with [[{{TheHeartless}} their Unversed]], which was summoned [[ThePowerOfHate from their hatred towards her]]. [[spoiler:All three are [[KillItWithFire killed by a firebomb]] before [[ActionGirl Aqua]] could [[TheUnfought even fight them]].]]

This is ''not'' the case with [[Disney/{{Cinderella}} Lady Tremaine, her two daughters,]] and [[Film/TronLegacy Clu]], Clu]]; all four of whom are much worse them have committed acts so heinous that they're viewed as larger monsters in this franchise than they are in their source films.

** [[spoiler:Tamagami, Japan's Minister of Defense,]] crossed it in the backstory by [[spoiler:experimenting on humans to create the National Defense Divinities with the ultimate goal of summoning Izanami to destroy and recreate Japan in his image, and then {{Body Surf}}ing into the body of a wrongly-accused woman to cheat death.]]
** The game firmly puts a previous villain across this after numerous failed attempts to save this villain: [[spoiler:YHVH, whose excuse was revealed to be Going Mad from Isolation. He not only posed as the Great Will throughout the entire franchise, forcing it to intervene through humanity, but also had Satan start and perpetuate the Forever War through the Archangels/Merkabah and Lucifer, who turns out to be a fake]].

* The Locust from ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' were nasty in the first place, but just in case you thought that they might actually be justified in their extreme actions (as Myrrah continually tries to pass them off as being), they skip gleefully past the Moral Event Horizon in ''Gears Of War 2'', [[spoiler:where they're revealed to capture humans just so they can expose them to torture so nasty, the biggest {{Badass}} of a game series that's practically Made Of Badass commits suicide once he's freed.]]

*** Mitch Baker and Tommy Vercetti themselves cross this in the mission "Missing With The Man". In the mission, Tommy smugly accepts Mitch Baker's challenge to go on a rampage across downtown, meaning the [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential shoot-outs the player embarks on outside of missions]] are completely [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration in-character]] for the guy.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'' gives us [[spoiler:Ardyn Izunia]]. Most of the characters only see this character as a creepy one, but not one they consider a BigBad. That is, until [[spoiler: he stabs Lunafreya when she's at her weakest when trying to reason with Leviathan in Altissia, the other characters helpless to do anything about it]].
