** Spike kills the Annointed One in his very first episode, although the kid ''was'' a vampire, so evil, undead, and possibly [[OlderThanTheyLook a lot older than he looked]]. Spike later tells Dawn a story about his violent slaughter of a whole family, culminating in his finding their little girl hiding in a coal cellar... whom he says he [[BlatantLies rescued and got adopted into a nice family who didn't lock her in coal cellars]], as soon as [[ObliviousToLove Buffy]] walks in.

* ''Series/BreakingBad'':
** Some gangsters draw a kid into their gang, having him kill a competing drug dealer as a hazing. They later [[spoiler:kill this kid after being told by their druglord boss they weren't allowed to use kids anymore.]]
** A more significant example comes when [[spoiler:Brock is poisoned by Walter, in an attempt to make it look like Gus had poisoned him, so that Jesse would turn on Gus. It's a clear KickTheDog moment as well as something of a MoralEventHorizon for Walter.]]
** And later, in Season 5's "Dead Freight", [[spoiler:Todd shoots a 10 year old boy who accidentally stumbles across their heist. The wildly diverging reactions to the killing between Jesse and Walt emphasize how far the latter has fallen: Jesse is completely traumatized while Walt puts a shallow mask of guilt over an obvious reality of indifference.]]
** The Aryans get [[spoiler: Skyler's and Jesse's]] cooperation by threatening to kill children. Considering all the other horrible things they had done, there is no doubt that they would do it.
