* 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.]]

* At the end of ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'', Sailor Venus discovers that her true love Ace [[spoiler:is actually Danburite, a subordinate of the Dark Kingdom]]. She [[spoiler:''begs'' him to stand down]] and tell her why, but once he [[spoiler:moves to attack]] she kills him. By the time of her debut in the ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga, [[StepfordSmiler her smile hides a really damaged psyche]], and when a BrainwashedAndCrazy Makoto attacks Usagi she nearly ''kills her''.
** 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]].

** [[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 proves it by [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge brutally killing Carta 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]].

* Occurs towards the end of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. [[spoiler: Anew Returner has managed to break the MindControl of BigBad Ribbons Almark and is about to surrender to her lover, Lockon, who is urging her to have a HeelFaceTurn so she can join Celestial Being for real. However, Ribbons takes control again as soon as Lockon lowers his guard, forcing teammate Setsuna to kill Anew. Understandably, [[HeroicBSOD Lockon takes it badly]], but sorta recovers in a surprisingly short time.]]
** A similar example happened in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny'': [[spoiler: In episode 32, Shinn [[DefusingTheTykebomb manages to calm Stellar down]] when she [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds destroys everything in her path]] due to being terrified of her own possible death. Their reunion is short-lived when she spots Kira/Freedom Gundam; Stellar then recalls [[ManipulativeBastard Neo]]'s words (if she doesn't fight, she will die, and so will her friends and loved ones) and ''massively'' freaks out. Shinn tries to calm her down again to no avail.., until Kira intervenes and destroys the Destroy Gundam, killing Stellar in process.]]

* When the characters of ''Manga/SchoolLive'' discover [[spoiler:the zombified body of their teacher, Megu-nee]], Miki takes it upon herself to deal with the situation. She does this because, as a latecomer, she has the least emotional attachment to what they found and it has to be dealt with to reach needed supplies. Despite this, she becomes quite tearful during the confrontation.

Doubly sad in that he tricked Zatch to do so by telling him there was "something weird about her book". When Zatch looks closer, Kiyo activates Zatch's attack spell to destroy the book.
