* ''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).

* Lampshaded in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' when during their first encounter Seras ascertains that Alucard is not a human before shooting him. Alucard derisively comments on that: "Why? Would you have shot me if I was?"

** To further accentuate her inhuman nature, Nui Harime [[spoiler: is the only one to suffer permanent scarring and loss of limb]], and that no one in-universe would actually feel, let alone show, her any pity.

* 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.

* In ''Claymore'' there are female warriors who are hybrids of humans and youma. And youma are "demons" that eat human entrails. The humans despise and fear them, or hate them even, and refer to them disparagingly as "silver-eyed witches". For almost all humans these female warriors are no more than youma. But they themselves see themselves as humans. It is also an important thing for them that they do not become a Awakened Being, because then they lose their human mind and would become monsters, also mentally. And indeed the anime shows many humans as evil, but that most warriors are really good.

** 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.
** This trope is justified with the "lesser demons" that look like giant insects and worms, but. Because they are really getting nasty.
** To be fair, it must also be mentioned that the protagonists have also been 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 beginning.
