** Helm's followers weren't too long in getting their own incident of this when an expedition of one group's led to them discovering Maztica... and promptly re-enacting "Conquistadors vs Aztecs". How bad was it? They founded an entire new order of ''paladins'' to try and make up for the damage those Helmites did.

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': after the Gatewatch [[spoiler:kill Ulamog and Kozilek]], Ugin shows up and basically calls them a pack of irresponsible jackasses, giving Jace in particular both barrels for being sanctimonious, deceitful, and arrogant, then tells them that he'd be quite happy if he never saw any of them again.

*** It's so bad, that the physical side effects of Mystara's death -- the creation of wild magic zones[[note]]places where magic becomes extremely erratic and unpredictable, resulting in bizarre outbursts whenever a spell is attempted[[/note]] and dead magic zones[[note]]places where no magic of any kind functions at all[[/note]] -- are derisively referred to as "Helmlands" in order to remind Helmites of his failure.

** During the Third War for Armageddon, a group of Orks infiltrated a refugee camp. When the captain in charge of the [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Marines Malevolent]] advocated wiping out the camp with artillery to eradicate the Orks, the Chapter Master of the Salamanders very nearly came to blows with him. In fluff, the Salamanders are much more conscious of civillians, and resultingly much more careful to avoid civillian casualties, than most other chapters who often see them as "unfortunate, but they got in our way."

** During the Horus Heresy, many of the Thousand Sons - prior to their fall to true damnation - spent a fair chunk of "A Thousand Sons" chewing out the Space Wolves for their thoughtlessly destructive purge of Heliosa and their hypocrisy in using psykers themselves while simultaneously accusing the Thousand Sons of practicing sorcery.

** Compassion?! HERETIC!!
*** The thing is, the Inquisition haven't called him that. They're ''too scared'' of him to do it.
** Under Logan Grimnar, the Space Wolves have started doing this a lot, actually. But his subordinates tend to voice their displeasure with their Boltguns instead. On of the more notable examples, an event called Honor's End, saw hundreds of Marines dead when the Space Wolves were enraged by the Flesh Tearers' butchery of civilians long after the enemy had been routed.

Logan and Inquisition haven't called him that. They're ''too scared'' actually started civil war over this issue. It stopped only when Bjorn the Fell-Handed delivered another epic WhatTheHellHero speech to both Logan and (surviving) Grey Knights and Inquisitors. Justified, since their little feud caused more casualties than First War of him to do it.

* During the [[ForgottenRealms Time of Troubles]], [[LawfulNeutral Helm]] was tasked with ensuring that the other gods did not enter a certain portal. When Mystra tried to force her way into the portal, Helm [[LawfulStupid struck her down without even bothering to figure out an alternative]]. The resulting outrage and backlash from the other gods (not to mention ''his own followers'') was so severe that to this day there's lingering resentment over what he did.

* ''{{Warhammer 40000}}'': after Angron was beaten back from Armageddon, the Inquisition rounded the surviving local population to be sterilised and placed in forced labour camps to prevent them from spreading first-hand knowledge of Chaos. Logan Grimnar of the Space Wolves... didn't like that very much, and has even vowed not to let this kind of thing happen again. Since it's someone in [[WorldHalfEmpty 40K]] making a ''principled and compassionate'' decision, doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
