* Referenced in the ''Franchise/Batman / Franchise/LordOfTheRings'' crossover ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/1601012/1/The-Gotham-Knights-of-Middle-Earth The Gotham Knights of Middle-Earth]]''; Tim Drake (Robin) and Cassandra Cain (Batgirl) both become part of the War of the Ring, but they never kill any of Sauron's human servants and only use lethal force against the orcs, which Tim compares to Darkseid's Parademons or Doomsday clones as they are nothing but monsters bred for destruction rather than fully sentient beings.

Added DiffLines:

* The central theme of ''Fanfic/TheParselmouthOfGryffindor''. Wizarding society seems to think the answer to this question is "anything that isn't a ''Homo Sapiens'' or maybe a goblin". [[ZombieAdvocate Hermione disagrees]]. Vehemently.

* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Pony version]] in ''FanFic/MyLittleUnicorn''. Titan's henchponies are artificial beings and considered not worth rescuing by the heroes when the reality they fought in starts to collapse around them and they are too weak to escape.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'', Supergirl is serious about not killing. Vampires, though? She'll not slay them but she won't stop Buffy from doing so.

* The WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic ''Fanfic/TheIronHorseEverythingsBetterWithRobots'' features a robotic pony named Turing Test. As she is the first of her kind, a lot of the other characters don't really regard her as a person with rights.

* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9308523/1/Sonic-Evil-Reborn-Zero SERZ: Sonic: Evil Reborn Zero]], this comes up during Episode 15, "Rockette's Revenge" but is lampshaded multiple times before.
* In the Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer story ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3382798/1/Spy-Game Spy Game]]'', members of the Watcher Council are horrified that Xander would kill a human necromancer that was raising an army of zombies but aren't remotely bothered they slaughtered an entire village of Kwaini (a race of universally non-violent demons). That is, until they learn said Kwaini were considered German citizens and now the government wants answers.

* Many Bleach fics touch on this, but especially, [[Fanfic/{{Downfall}} Downfall]] engages this head-on. [[spoiler:Unohana]] treats Hollows with dignity and respect, and as a result, most of the more humane examples gravitate towards her. More importantly, Aizen, of all people, questions Soul Society's "Kill 'em all" mindset. Of course [[spoiler:he's a good guy this time around]] but that's par for the course. The way the war is shaping up, many of the main characters will be forced to confront this concept.

* FanficRecs/{{Chobits}} fanfiction also tends to go this way.
** Like FanFic/{{Rebellion}}
* Franchise/{{Naruto}} fanfics tend to go into this regarding the jinchuuriki.

Added DiffLines:

*An important theme for the four in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'', inasmuch as they pretty much regard everything with a brain and a face, and even large plants, as Things Not To Be Harmed. To the point where they get into trouble because they refuse to harm monsters that ''everyone else gladly slaughters''. (Mind you, a war is more or less taking place, but they're there involuntarily.)
