* CrossesTheLineTwice: A US Marshal playing a very real, potentially game of Russian Roulette with a criminal? Not funny, potentially a troubling sign that he's approaching HeWhoFightsMonsters territory. A US Marshal playing Russian Roulette with a usual cool and controlled criminal who is screaming "JESUS CHRIST! YOU'RE A COP!" at the top of his lungs? Hilarious.

** Threatening to "beat the shit" out of a teenager who works at a batting cage. The reason? The kid told him to wear a helmet. ''Which is the rule at the batting cage.''
** Running a guy over - ''twice.'' While that was somewhat [[TitleDrop Justified]], since the guy was pulling a gun ([[WhatAnIdiot twice]]), Raylan then threatens to deny him medical treatment. [[FromBadToWorse Then]], while the guy's in the hospital, Raylan sneaks into his room, [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique sits on his broken leg and takes away his morphine.]] Then when a nurse comes in and the guy starts trying to tell her what Raylan's doing to him, Raylan pumps him full of morphine so he can't talk.

* CompleteMonster: While there were quite a few murderers and psychos in Justified, most of the villains had some sympathetic qualities. The same can not be said of these individuals:
** [[ProfessionalKiller Fletcher "The Icepick" Nix]] from the season 3 premier "The Gunfighter" is a PsychoForHire, [[TheGunfighterWannabe wannabe gunfighter]], and federal fugitive in the employ of Dixie Mafia boss Emmett Arnett. Arnett sends him to rob Delmar Coates, a very wealthy man. Nix proceeds to order a pizza to Coates' address. He then takes Coates and the pizza guy hostage, and robs Coates of his expensive watch collection. He then declares that he doesn't want to leave any witnesses, but that he'll give Coates a chance. He places a gun on the table between them, and has the pizza guy count down from ten. On "zero" they are both to go for the gun. Only thing is, Nix has an icepick under the table in his other hand. He [[ImpaledPalm impales Coates' hand]] when he tries to go for the gun, then kills him, then kills the pizza guy. He justifies this on the basis that they've seen his face, but as he admits, he could just wear a mask, but doesn't like to, as he's "too pretty". When Nix is prevented from meeting up with Arnett, rather than flee with the several hundred thousand dollars worth of watches he now has on his person, Nix kidnaps protagonist Raylan Givens's ex-wife Winona, and makes Raylan play his game, intending to kill them both the same way he did Coates and the pizza guy.
** [[PsychoForHire Boon]] from the latter half of season six is a barely restrained lunatic, sociopath, and implied sexual predator. He delights in intimidation, terror, and domination. He constantly terrorizes Loretta [=McCready=] with barely-concealed threats of sexual violence and cheerfully admits that he's "deranged and possibly dangerous." He murders Loretta's great aunt under Avery Markham's orders and taunts Loretta about it, and later terrorizes two strangers at a diner for the sport of it (again with implied threats of sexual violence sprinkled throughout). Throughout his time on the show, he repeatedly tells Raylan he'd like to kill him in a wild-west style shootout, taking perverse pleasure in the idea. Justified showed us a lot of dangerous individuals throughout the show's run, but Boon may have been the most unashamedly depraved of them all.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Amazon's ''Sneaky Pete'', which features Graham Yost as showrunner, a lot of overlap in writers and directors, a similar decaying rural setting for Elmore Leonard-esque crime stories and a few ''Justified'' alums in the cast, most prominently Margo Martindale and Jacob Pitts.

** Boyd Crowder. Although he murders many people over the course of the series, it could be argued that they were all criminals who deserved it in some way. In Season 6 [[spoiler: the deaths of Dewey Crowe and Boyd's loyal lieutenant Carl both come out of the blue and leave a nasty taste in the mouth but the totally unnecessary, and petulant, killing of Hagen, the innocent citizen Boyd kidnaps so he can be driven around, really crosses the line.]]
