* In ''VideoGame/OneChance'', if you spend the last day where everyone is alive and well at home then helping to create a cure, [[spoiler:a scientist will try to murder you as all the other had already died]]. If you block the attack, he will run away. Returning home however, you find the bodies of your wife and kid, along with the coworkers' corpse.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' the vampire Alva forces her thrall Laelette to murder a man's husband and young daughter as part of her plan to seduce him. Partially subverted by the fact that Laelette felt guilty about the whole situation and attempted turning the girl into a vampire and resurrecting her when that failed, but Alva had no qualms about killing the innocent.

However, the remake changed it to a church and he's [[LighterandSofter somewhat less ruthless in later games]] (which are devoid of children similarly to the GTA example above).

Also, when blowing up the Institute, you can leave the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots synth]] version of Shaun to burn, which gets you some [[WhatTheHellHero harsh comments]] from your faction's tech specialist]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', this example:

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' uses this rather a lot, either to demonstrate the generalised war setting or as KickTheDog for the villains:

** In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', Solidus Snake's depth of evil is characterised with how he used to be a warlord with an army exclusively made up of child soldiers (called the Small Boy Unit), killing their parents and then sending them off to die in the Liberian civil war. In the same game, the evil of the Patriots is highlighted by their kidnap of Olga's child, who they use purely to keep Olga under control.

** ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' revolves around a villain who is literally stealing the brains of homeless children to create disposable killer cyborgs. This is horrible enough that it allows [[BlackAndGrayMorality Raiden's gleefully murderous behaviour]] to be intensely sympathetic in comparison.

* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' has the gnome Jeb, who enjoys murdering street children. Unfortunately, you have to make allies with him in the first game in order to escape from prison; in the second game, however, you encouter him again, and can give him what he deserves.

*** Mario and Luigi also have no problems with ''killing'' a ''baby'' and are seen doing it 5 times in the ''VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy'' games (2 Dino Piranhas, 2 Fiery Dino Piranhas and 1 Peewee Piranha) and in ''these'' cases (unlike the cases where the infant survives like Baby Bowser, Bowser Jr. and Jr. Troopa) they aren't being evil nor mean.

*** According to Ranger Andy, [[TheHorde Caesar's Legion]] considers using child suicide bombers to be a legitimate strategy since everyone lowers their guard with kids.

* The first two ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}s'' make you a Childkiller if [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin you killed a child]][[note]]Well, at least two[[/note]], which would cause almost everyone, [[EvenEvilHasStandards even other renounced scumbags and lowlifes]], to hate you. At least the children were scripted to flee when accidentally hit, so they rarely got killed by [=NPCs=]. In ''Fallout 2'', once you've progressed through the game long enough in an attempt to go to another settlement, you'll get an encounter that shows [[spoiler:an Enclave patrol]] coldly killing a small family, including an only child, which serves as an ominous {{Foreshadowing}} to their existence, who have no qualms in exterminating any being that isn't them or wasn't born in a Vault, and yes, that includes children. The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' had invincible children (unless you use some mods...there is even a very famous one which implied '''eating a baby''' in exchange for the benefit of a perk which give you rads immunity, you can see this marvelous sickness [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7Jl61n3YY8 here]])
