** While Lois is on sorta-higher ground than Peter, some may argue that she FINALLY crossed the moral line in "Go, Stewie, Go!" when she decides to exploit Stevie after his success in a peanut butter commercial. Wanting him to become a child star and make money off of it, she constantly gives Stevie stimulants and drugs to keep him alert and active and constantly kept him awake all night to make him rehearse for other commercials. Lois realizes the error of her ways after Stewie has a meltdown in an orange juice commercial.

** While Lois is on sorta-higher ground than Peter, some may argue that she FINALLY crossed the moral line in "Go, Stewie, Go!" when she after Peter mocks her for growing grey hairs, decides to make out with Meg's boyfriend Anthony (who is 17 years old even though he is one year over Rhode Island's age of consent but the whole thing is still creepy) and Lois goes as far as poorly trying to cover that up from Meg just by simply saying um... rape. The reason Peter crossed it with Lois was because he mocked her for getting old and that led her to have the affair with Anthony as the mocking was very offensive. Even the Parents television council took notice of this as seen in the comment that starts off this page.
*** For those willing to overlook The offense Peter and Lois did in the aforementioned example and looking for worse things they did, there was also that episode where Lois and Peter decide
to exploit Stevie after his success in a peanut butter commercial.

Yeah, Meg did not buy it.

In her second and last appearance, Berry ties up a family and tries to KILL Mac.Mac.
** Bendy crosses it when in his first and only major appearance, he takes over the Foster home loudspeaker and starts playing around with it, then tricks Bloo into taking it so he could frame Bloo for the rule breaking, which results in Bloo getting grounded by Mr. Herriman and having his T.V, video game, and paddleball privileges taken away .... until further notice. Bendy has framed Bloo and even the other members of the main cast for other offenses before but the loudspeaker offense was where fans believed that Bendy crossed the line.



** Richard Nixon's Head crosses it in "Crimes Of The Hot" when he attempts to commit genocide on all the robots of Earth by tricking them into attending a party on the Galapagos Islands so he could exterminate them all there. His reason for doing this was to provide a quick solution to the global warming problem but his actions are considered to be an act of genocide and racism and it can be considered a hate crime. ***Ogden Wernstrom also crosses the MEH in the same episode for the exact same reasons

* ''WesternAnimation/SuperNoobs''
** Count Venamus crosses it seconds after his début appearance when he serves poisoned food infected with the virus to several virus warriors attending the new virus warriors convention and sits back to see them turn into rampaging monsters, which was eventually stopped by the Noobs. His status as an MEH crossers is set in stone when he tricks Memnock and Zenblock into opening his prison pod then tries to murder them by shoving them in the pod and then launching it into space before attempting to murder the noobs again and this happened after the main cast tried to get him to do a HeelFaceTurn.

** The High Priestess crossed it with the ruthless training of her daughters, turning them into bloodthirsty killers. The most abusive thing she has done to her daughters that most blatantly shows that she has crossed the line was when she pushes her daughters into a pit containing a black tar and coal like substance, which burnt their skin and caused such skin to serve their battle suits.



* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': [[spoiler:Rick himself]] crosses this at the end of the season three premiere when [[spoiler:he ([[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech at great length]]) explains to Morty that all his of heroic actions throughout the episode were a calculated gambit to get Jerry and Beth divorced and allowing him to become the unchallenged family patriarch, and how Morty now has to go on all his adventures and can't do anything about it because Beth will hold him in higher regard for saving him and Summer.]] Assuming [[UnreliableNarrator he's not lying about it]] though.

*** Rick may have crossed the MEH earlier in "Rick Potion #9" after he gives Morty a love potion that ends up causing everyone to turn into monsters. Instead of finding a cure for these people, Rick simply takes Morty with him and abandons that dimension, moving into a replacement dimension where the problem was already solved .

** [[BigBad Father]] crossed the line when he planned to ''bake a bunch of innocent kids into a cake''.



* Near the end of the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' series, [[GreaterScopeVillain Eddy's Brother]] crossed this within ''seconds'' of making his first appearance when he began to mercilessly beat the shit out of Eddy, and freely admit he's [[DomesticAbuse always done this to him]].

** Mojo Jojo in the movie when he enslaves the entire city of Townsville with his monkeys, destroying most of the city, and also breaking the Girls' trust.



** Mitch Mitchelson torturing and flushing Twiggy the hamster down the toilet in "Getting' Twiggy With It".
** Buttercup ''almost'' crossed this after she remorselessly made Bubbles cry by breaking the latter's chalk in "All Chalked Up". This is ultimately subverted when it's hinted that Buttercup felt bad later on in the episode, and [[TheUnapologetic gives an implied apology to Bubbles.]]
*** However, it was agreed by plenty of viewers that Buttercup crossed the line long ago before that episode when she abused Bubbles to steal her teeth and ended up stealing teeth from the villains just to get money from that in "Moral Decay".



* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', Plankton crosses the Moral Event Horizon in the movie. He stole King Neptune's crown, frames Mr. Krabs for it, enslaves Bikini Bottom, shows excitement and joy when Mr. Krabs is going to be executed and sends Dennis to kill SpongeBob and Patrick.
** Of course, Mr. Krabs isn't exactly a saint himself considering how greedy he is, particularly during the SeasonalRot. In "One Coarse Meal" he establishes his SeasonalRot personality when he exploits Plankton's fear of whales by dressing as his daughter, Pearl, and threatening to eat him. Krabs harasses Plankton so much that the latter eventually becomes [[DrivenToSuicide suicidal]]. After Krabs found out that Plankton was ready to commit suicide, he simply laughed at Plankton's misery. Worst of all, apart from temporarily being hung upside down & forced to watch a mime's performance after Plankton finds out, [[KarmaHoudini he doesn't receive any comeuppance for this.]] And all of this is for fun.
** In "Cephalopod Lodge", the members of the lodge crossed this when they kicked [[ButtMonkey Squidward]] out just because they thought SpongeBob and [[TheDitz Patrick]] were following him. It's made even [[FridgeHorror worse]] when you realize the lodge was one of the things that made [[UnpopularPopularCharacter Squidward]] genuinely happy in his '''whole''' miserable life.
** In the episode "Demolition Doofus", Mrs. Puff crosses it with her attempt to kill [=SpongeBob=] in a monster truck derby when she got tired of his antics, even stepping in herself when he managed to prove himself a natural at it. Not just injure him, but '''kill him outright'''!

** Meg was shown to be [[NotSoDifferent no better than any of them]], when she almost crossed it in "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS11E7FriendsWithoutBenefits Friends Without Benefits]]". After finding out that a crush of hers is gay and is attracted to her brother, Meg decides to arrange it so that Chris will have sex with him since it would be the closest thing to actually having sex with her crush. Her plan is to drug Chris and essentially have him date-raped. While Meg's life is hell, and she never goes through with her plan, the fact she considered it is bad enough.

** The High Priestess is shown to be a very abusive mother towards her own seven daughters, giving them no love and affection whatsoever as she instead puts them through brutal and rigorous training just so they would be able to kill Jack and in doing so glorify Aku. Her MEH moment comes in the sixth episode of the final season when she pushes her own daughters into a pit of burning coals, which out them in severe pain, burnt the majority of their skin and caused such skin to serve as their battle suits.

** Karai's alternate future self from "Same As It Never Was" aided Shredder and served him as his right-hand, even when Shredder took over the entire planet, turning it into a massive hellhole, enslaved humans and Utroms, planned to invade other worlds and reduced much of Earth's population and killed everyone who opposed him in brutal ways. Yet she still aided him and never even expressed any remorse for any of this, while stating that she just follows her duties, but at this point this argument to defend herself is '''meaningless'''. She is just as accountable for this as the Shredder. Karai from present at least questioned his acts and even went against him in "Mission Of Gravity" and [[spoiler: pulled a HeelFaceTurn during the TurtlesForever, when she found out that Shredder was attempting to erase the entire universe]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSecretShow'' saw Doctor Doctor cross the Moral Event Horizon one episode when she tricked Victor and Anita into flying towards the Sun and then attempted to leave them behind and let them burn to death.
