** [[SociopathicHero Mikazuki Augus]] in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'', unlike most examples, frequently shoots the dogs all the time and has no qualm about doing so. He started out by killing the defenseless CGS staffs, who were AssholeVictim on their own for mistreating children, then he delivered a MercyKill to Crank when the later still [[KilledMidSentence haven't yet thanked]] Mika. The alarming example is shortly after [[spoiler:[[MoralityChain Biscuit's death]], Mika declared whoever blocks his way is his enemy and he will crush every last one of them, and he proves it by [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge brutally killing Carta and her bodyguards as]] '''[[ExtremeMeleeRevenge slow]]''' [[ThereisNoKillLikeOverkill as possible]] when the later were still [[CombatByChampion asking for a duel]] and possibly a truce]]. While his actions were indeed logical and pushed his allies to conquer their enemies, it also eliminated all possibilities of DefeatMeansFriendship situation and started [[ItsPersonal Ein and Gaelio's personal grudge against Mika]].

* ''Manga/SevenSeeds'' has this occur during the final test for the Team Summer A candidates. Gengoro has to kill several of the animals he has been taken care of, including the tiger that he raised from kittenhood on, because of various reasons: the animals were purposefully infected with rabies; they were injured beyond help and most of them were unaccustomed to life in the wild, since they were kept in cages and raised by humans. Gengoro is aware that most of them are [[MercyKill mercy killings]], but still has difficulty accepting his actions.

* Rossiu's job in the second half of ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', which is to do the [[StrawVulcan "most logical"]] thing, while the Hero does the RuleOfCool thing. In a short time he [[spoiler: orders the execution of Simon to put down the riots (which doesn't work) and gives in to the Anti-Spiral's ultimatum, thereby trying to leave hundreds of thousands to die so he can save a tiny minority... except not, since the Anti-Spirals plan to kill ''everyone'' anyway.]]

** Incidentally, Ace's whole motivation was this: he [[spoiler:[[ReincarnationRomance loved Sailor Venus from their previous lives]] and]] knew [[MarriedToTheJob she'd always choose duty over love]] but that if she found out at the wrong moment she would have suffered more and could have died as she exitated, so he [[spoiler:joined the Dark Kingdom]] and set up the whole situation [[ActOfTrueLove so the woman he loved would be faced with the choice in a controlled environment where she wouldn't risk her life]].
