* In ''Webcomic/EightBitTheater'', Black Mage finally gets this after he kills White Mage. At that point, [[StupidGood Fighter]] - of all people - decides that he simply can't be redeemed. Of course, it's played for comedy once the [[DeusExMachina wizard made of plotanium]] comes by.

** Fans debate quite a bit as to whether Vriska has crossed this or not. Some viewers believe that she gleefully swan-dived over the line back when [[spoiler:she mind-controlled Tavros into jumping off a cliff]] and has only gone deeper since then, and some viewers think that she can still be redeemed. Given that she's easily [[BaseBreaker the most divisive character in the series]], this argument is not surprising.
*** And given that the author has [[WordOfGod said outright]] that Vriska's [[BaseBreaker status]] is intentional and [[TrollingCreator he does it to mess with the fanbase]], it's equally unsurprising that he pulled an even more confusing possible-example with her later when she [[spoiler:kills Tavros]]: she does something awful, then immediately goes into full-on PetTheDog mode.

** The biggest and undisputed moment in the series happened in the backstory during the Nidraa'chal War, when [[spoiler:Snadhya'rune, Sarv'swati, and Zala'ess Vel'Sharen]] orchestrated the entire war and the deaths and forceful demonification of hundreds if not ''thousands'' of people in order to [[spoiler:kill their mother Val'Sharess Diva'ratrika by sealing her in her own throne room until she died, and frame their sister Sil'lice and force her into exile]]. And while a case could be made for WellIntentionedExtremist, [[spoiler:Snadhya'rune]] was sent even further beyond the horizon at the revelation that [[spoiler:[[http://www.drowtales.com/mainarchive.php?order=chapters&id=1275 she's deliberately given faulty demonic seeds to many of her followers that will slowly kill them within 25 to 50 years until only a few of her choosing are left]]]]. It's not a matter of ''if'' it's going to catch up them as ''when'', since the plot is starting to fall down around them.

* In ''Webcomic/AmazingAgentJennifer'', Jennifer's parents definitely have crossed it in the "Coming Home" arc. Jennifer chooses a career path that is not the family business, and her father Benjiro turns his back on her, saying she turned her back on the family and the family business, saying Jennifer broke her mother's heart when she didn't come home for the holidays 3 years before the arc, at which point his FantasyForbiddingFather attitude had already driven her away, and refused to show up for her graduation, and actually ''forbid'' his wife to attend to the ceremony, and when he finds out Jennifer's mother ''did'' attend to the ceremony, she tries to pretend she wasn't there, and after shit hits the fan, Jennifer's mother accused ''her'' of "tearing the family apart". And in Jennifer's words, they wouldn't even try to make things right or listen to her. And as the final [[KickTheDog kick in the dog's gut]], Benjiro outright calls Jennifer a ''disgrace''. [[SarcasmMode Yeah, she's a disgrace for not being their puppet robot, good at running the "family business" and choosing to live her life on her own terms instead. Parents of the year...]] And years later, in the [[Manga/AmazingAgentLuna series]] that ''Jennifer'' is a prequel to, they try to sweep all of this under the rug as if nothing had happened.

* It's debated on the forums, but Syphile from ''{{Drowtales}}'' started as a {{Jerkass}} with slight hints of JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but then she left Ariel in a room with her pet cat for a week with no provisions for the calls of nature, resulting in Fuzzy becoming very sick with Ariel unable to do anything about it. When Syphile came back and saw what had happened, she blamed Ariel and took that cat away, and then when the cat bit her, she slammed his head against the wall and killed him. To top it off, when Ariel was understandably upset about this, Syphile beat her to make her stop crying. Earlier versions of the story had portrayed Syphile somewhat sympathetically (possibly [[UnintentionallySympathetic unintentionally]]), but this act cemented her as a total bitch in many people's minds.

* One of the remarkable things about the writing in ErrantStory is that many readers were still undecided about whether Ian's actions were evil when he started trying to genocide the [[PayEvilUntoEvil entire Elven race]], due to what they'd done to the Half-Elves.

to:

* Kyle in ''SomethingPositive'', ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp05242004.shtml here.]] Bad enough that he's a misogynistic jerk, worse that he's cheating on a member of the cast, but what completely pushes him over the line is that he's bragging to a reforming JerkAss who would move heaven and earth to have the woman Kyle's discarding. His [[http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp10292004.shtml comeuppance]] delighted the bulk of the comic's notoriously UnpleasableFanbase.
* While the protagonists of SuicideForHire ''Webcomic/SuicideForHire'' spend a lot of time on the far side of the MoralEventHorizon, many (if not most) of their clientele also cross that line...



** Or, in the "Ty and Rosaline" arc, [[spoiler:Ty not only abuses his loving wife repeatedly, but drives her to contact SuicideForHire...and, after her suicide, makes the fatal mistake of contacting them himself to arrange ''his'' suicide... and demonstrates a complete lack of interest for his wife's last message. They do...oh, don't they just!]]
* Admiral Blake in ''{{Terinu}}''. Supervising Terinu's arrest and detention in a biological research lab? Decidedly unpleasant. Arranging for his daughter Leeza to be fired from her job and forcing her into being the boy's guardian after she rescues him from said facility? Definitely not good. [[spoiler:Having Leeza arrested and ordering Terinu's assassination to cover up a centuries-old act of genocide?]] The readers were howling for his blood.

*** Since then, Vaarsuvius has taken part in torturing a prisoner. Without any such excuse as V had for the above.

** Aranea [[spoiler: drops a house on Jade to prevent her from going Grimbark a second time, then manipul8tes the God Tier clock into considering her death Just right as it appears she might revive, killing her for real as a result.]]

** Gamzee, who had already established himself as evil by [[spoiler: killing Equius and Nepeta, and hoarding their and others' corpses to sell their blood]], pretty definitively crossed the MEH when he [[spoiler:beat Terezi, his former kismesis, to a bloody pulp (over the course of several very graphic panels), nearly killing her while all her friends who were still alive watched]]. It was enough to [[spoiler: drive Kanaya to slice him up with her chainsaw.]]
