** In the Band of Seven arc, Inuyasha spares Jakotsu after he defeats him because the latter is a human being. At the time this happens, however, Jakotsu is a undead, not to mention a sadistic murderer who has already killed many humans.

** There was one youkai who was ordered to steal Tessaiga from Inuyasha. After he was caught, [[AllLovingHero Kagome]] says, "If you do it again, we'll slay you."
** There is also a notable exception to the half-youkai rule with Jinenji, a large, ugly (but benevolent) half-youkai that was being discriminated against by the village he lived in, only for Kagome and (''[[NotSoDifferent especially]]'') Inuyasha to take his side and get the villagers not to see him as an enemy. This trope is actively explored and played with throughout the episode.

** In another arc, Inuyasha destroys a whole pack of bat-demons because they're mistreating the young half-demon girl Shiori, yet he seems to do nothing against the humans who also have mistreated Shiori.
** To be fair, it must also be mentioned that the protagonists have also frequently spared antagonistic youkai if they were not really evil, or at least have not killed humans. With Koga and Sesshomaru, they have even become friends, even though they were evil youkai at the beginning.

" This is in direct contrast to when Sango stole the Tessaiga and nearly got the group killed, where [[WelcomeBackTraitor she was easily forgiven]].

** Kagome's bizarre insistence that Inuyasha is "may be half-youkai, but is half-human too" so can be a good guy is strange given that she's traveling with a full-youkai; Shippo; who is the most innocent member of the cast.

** In an arc spared Inuyasha the warrior Jakotsu, after he defeating him, because this was a human being. At the time of the story, however, Jakotsu is a undead and, moreover, a sadistic murderer who has already killed many humans. But Inuyasha killed from lower grounds youkai.
** In another arc he destroyed a whole pack bat-demons because they have the young half-demon girl Shiori mistreated. Probably Shiori is the only one of her pack, which has survived the attack. However, he seems to do nothing against the humans who also have mistreated Shiori. And the probability is very high that they will attack she later, because most humans think that half-demons only are monsters.

* ''Manga/OnePunchMan'': Saitama kills obviously-sentient non-human monsters (even ones whose inhumanity is physically slight, like a CuteMonsterGirl) without the slightest hint of remorse; but he refuses to kill humans ever. [[spoiler:This is particularly obvious in the Garou arc, where Saitama decides that Garou is human and won't allow the heroes to kill him.]] Part of this is that some monsters were never human in the first place. Those who were human typically went crazy due to a particular trauma or obsession and mutated; after the mutation, the monsters have lost all humanity and will slaughter and kill without rhyme or reason, so Saitama shows them no mercy. [[spoiler: One reason he refuses to see Garou as a monster is that Garou won't kill other humans.]]
** Saitama's standard, however, seems to be whether the monster is an immediate "lethal" danger toward people; he's let [[spoiler: Garou and the weed monster]] live since they were only beating people, he's also let [[spoiler: Black Sperm and Rover live (he even keeps them as pets)]] when they were in a weak form, and finally he's allowed monsters to surrender (Armored Gorilla was spared). He still shows a little more mercy towards full humans (he lets Sonic live, even though he never surrenders or stops being a danger).

* In the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' episode "Jamming with Edward", the bounty-head is revealed to be [[spoiler:an ArtificialIntelligence that Ed had been interacting with]]. As AI are not considered organisms, they are not subject to having bounties placed on them, thus no bounty is awarded.

* In ''LightNovel/{{Durarara}}'', a few hoodlums are up against a "shadow". While they've killed before, the narration explicitly notes that they don't feel there's anything wrong with trying to kill it. Said "shadow" is Celty, HeadlessHorseman, CuteMonsterGirl, and the main character. Oh, and a {{Badass}}, so they really didn't have a chance.
