* [[http://www.vanvonhunter.com/vvh232.html A hilarious literal example]], from the {{webcomic}} ''VanVonHunter''.
* As soon as the villain, [[spoiler:Frans Rayner]], of the [[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja D.A.R.E To Resist Ninja Drugs and Ninja Violence]] story arc is introduced, he [[http://drmcninja.com/page.php?pageNum=18&issue=4 gets into this trope.]] It could be seen as his MoralEventHorizon... but they are just mooks [[YouHaveFailedMe who failed him]] because of Dan [=McNinja=]'s IncendiaryExponent.
* This is [[http://www.nuklearpower.com/2006/11/18/episode-771-no-good-deed/ parodied]] in an ''[[Webcomic/EightBitTheater 8-bit Theater]]'' strip.
* At the end of a ''PennyAndAggie'' storyline, Charisma rants to her illegitimate son's face that he exists to ruin her life, after a series of events he had no control over, in front of her boyfriend. Needless to say, he leaves her soon after.
* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' Aylee[[spoiler:'s evil clone]] gets one of these after she goes through her corporate executive transformation. She attacks the gang's Halloween party and leaves all the guests unconscious outside and taunts Riff with the knowledge that she can kill him and everyone he knows ''so easily''.
** K'Z'K gets one when he [[DemonicPossession takes over Gwynn's body]] (the second time). Trying to kill Riff, Torg, and Zoe? Well, they ''did'' foil his evil plans; there's some legitimate revenge motivation going on there. [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=010308 But trying to kill Kiki]], cute TalkingAnimal who [[IncorruptiblePurePureness never means anyone any harm]]? Then you've gotta pay.
* New KnightTemplar Xaphrael kicks the dog within his first half dozen strips in ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' when he nearly chokes resident IneffectualSympatheticVillain Cassiel in [[http://www.misfile.com/?date=2008-08-22 this strip]] (for doing her best to get Rumsiel in trouble).
* In ''AwkwardZombie'', the AuthorAvatar [[http://www.awkwardzombie.com/comic1-090108.php does this literally]].
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''
** [[AristocratsAreEvil Kubota]] has kicked several puppies. He not only orders his men to kill a pregnant woman ([[ActionMom which doesn't work that well, but still...]]), he seals the deal by [[spoiler:poisoning and killing his assistant Therkla, just so he can make an effective escape]]. This last act might even put Kubota [[MoralEventHorizon into even worse territory.]]
** Vaarsuvius [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0597.html threatening Elan with death]] when Elan says that he will not cover up for Vaarsuvius [[spoiler:killing Kubota]]. In addition to suggesting that Elan had an affair with Therkla behind Haley's back. Note that Elan is ''[[AmbiguousGender hir]] team-mate''.
** Belkar constantly complains about not getting to kick any dogs. Although, he does eventually cross the line with his teammates when he kills the oracle.
** Yukyuk [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0792.html here]]. He had no way of knowing that Mr. Scruffy was an enemy - he just decided to shoot a cat for fun.
** Xykon, of course, as you would expect from a CardCarryingVillain. His favorite is sending the {{Mooks}} to their deaths. Redcloak does the same [[spoiler: until his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment during the battle of Azure City]].
** Tarquin. We know his political moves are evil, but in case the audience would feel it justified, he quickly shows that he is ''still'' evil. Even Elan [[OhCrap realizes this]] when it's practically spelled out in giant flaming letters made of escaped slaves. Later, Elan sarcastically mentions the trope to him, but...
--> '''Tarquin''': "There is one more thing, Elan -- then you may begin your long walk across the desert, if that's your decision."
--> '''Elan''': "What, do you have a bunny you need to punch in front of me or something?"
--> '''Tarquin''': "No, I'm talking about your dismal combat performance back in the pyramid." ''to his aide'' "Though make a note of the bunny thing for next time, that's good stuff."
** Vaarsuvius is on the receiving end of a kick when [[spoiler:[[TheImp Qarr]], for no apparent reason, decides that what V needed was to have salt rubbed in the wound of realizing how many people casting Familicide hurt. There was literally no reason for him to do that, especially given how Qarr was there to convince V that it wasn't zir fault and push him/her further into evil, and Qarr kind of ruined that scheme when he was indulging in diabolic mocking.]]
** And there was very little need for Nale to rub it in Malack's face that he had killed his children. He shouldn't have been surprised by [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0811.html Malack's reaction]].
* Very literal instance in ''GeneralProtectionFault'', in [[http://www.gpf-comics.com/archive.php?d=19990101 one of Trudy's earliest appearances]], complete with [[GigglingVillain giggle]]. This turns out to be one of her ''nicer'' traits as the strip progresses.
* ''QuestionableContent''. [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1307 Sven.]] Not funny, Jeph. Not funny.
** He could have chosen a much less mean way to put it, but [[StrawmanHasAPoint he does have a fair point]]: he and Fay are fuck buddies with few-or-no strings attached, so expecting exclusivity is pretty strange. And if she wants something more serious, she could always ASK, rather than trying to browbeat him into it.
* MinionsAtWork. [[http://www.minionsatwork.com/2009/03/minions-153-freshly-cribbed.html Well, I don't feel really good about who we stole the candy from but you have to admit... it was easy]].
* Misty Snow from {{Shadowgirls}}. She was racist at the age of 5, and when she grew up, she became a teenage [[AlphaBitch Queen]] of {{Jerkass}}. Her biggest feat in kicking a dog? She [[spoiler: made Lin betray her best friend Becka for popularity, and led her in a trap, but instead of embarrassing her in public, like Lin thought it would end, Becka almost gets ''raped'' by three guys. And Misty was meanwhile playing with Lin's guilt, and thinking about it made FateWorseThanDeath even worse.]]
** And if you think Misty's bad, just wait until [[spoiler: she becomes [[DemonicPossession Possessed By]] [[GodOfEvil Mother]] [[EldritchAbomination Hydra]], who surpasses her in kicking a dog like hell. And she has [[http://www.shadowgirlscomic.com/comics/con-recoverage-part-one/ this]] promo art.]]
* Several times in ''SlightlyDamned'':
** First, we have the as-yet unnamed [[KnightOfCerebus hooded archer]], whose first action in the story is to [[spoiler:kill Sakido]].
** Shortly afterwards, we're introduced to Lazuli and Talos, two demons who got their kicks out of tormenting Kieri.
** And shortly after ''that'', we learn Kieri's bunny form was a curse from a rabbit spirit (go figure), who did it to her for the lulz.
** And then there's Denevol, who despite being an [[LightIsNotGood Angel]], has done nothing ''but'' kick dogs (and bunnies) since he appeared.
* Mr. Bignose from TragicDeaths does this quite literally.
* For the first part of {{RPG World}} Galgarion comes across as a [[LaughablyEvil comical]] somewhat [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain harmless]] villain. But as CerebusSyndrome set in, Galgy got several suprisingly evil moments, including his [[http://rpgworldcomic.com/d/20020619.html attack on the Mubble village]], the [[http://rpgworldcomic.com/d/20030212.html slaughter of a turncoat henchman's family]] and finally [[spoiler: [[http://rpgworldcomic.com/d/20030824.html murdering Reka.]]]] Some or all of these might count as crossing the MoralEventHorizon as well.
* Nemen Yi, the Chosen of Battles in KeychainOfCreation. When she first shows up, her moral status is indeterminate: sure, she's trying to sequester the group's precious artifact, but it had just been stolen by the villains for world-ending purposes. Then, after one of the team gets it back, the Chosen of Battles looks like she's ready to throw down on the group -- until Marena points out that that [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0238.html would be illegal]]. Fortunately, the conundrum of whether we're supposed to sympathize with Nemen Yi or not is solved in the very [[http://keychain.patternspider.net/archive/koc0239.html very next strip]], as she immediately chooses to try and steal the artifact and bait the rest of the group into attacking her first (so she can "defend" herself) by attempting to behead Secret, on the legal technicality that even though she is a defector from team evil and working for the protagonists, she's still an Abyssal {{Exalted}}. Going straight for TheWoobie's neck just to get around a bureaucratic roadblock in your path is what we call "a signal".
* [[http://leasticoulddo.com/comic/20091128 This]] strip of [[LeastICouldDo LICD]] has a literal example.
* Khrima from ''Webcomic/{{Adventurers}}'', [[http://www.adventurers-comic.com/d/20020315.html he kicks cute things]].
* In Knights of the Old Republic, Darth Bandon attacks a guy as he's walking in to meet [[BigBad Darth Malak]], and Darth Malak electrocutes two people for no apparent reason at one point.
* And, of course, SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal gives us a [[http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=249#comic literal example]].
* TheDreamlandChronicles: They told to keep out of trouble, so [[http://www.thedreamlandchronicles.com/the-dreamland-chronicles/chapter-04/page-256/ the guard abuses]] [[ChildrenAreInnocent children]] before them.
* More or less literally happens in TheQMan when Talbot remotely performs a command override [[http://whoistheqman.com/archives/2011/01/10/358 during the Q Man's first mission]].
* [[HeroicComedicSociopath Richard the Warlock]] of LookingForGroup does this on a regular basis, usually for comic effect.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcbazH6aE2g Quite literally.]]
* ''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' uses this, taken as literally as possible, as the entire punchline, and stinger, in one of their animated shorts.
* ButImACatPerson takes this from the dog's point of view. The kicker's identity is still a mystery, but the aftermath inspires the heroes (at least, one of them) to commit to being on the dog's side.
* Seymour, the KnightTemplar vampire hunter from {{Nosfera}} does this when he kills some monsters after they had ALREADY SURRENDERED.
* SquidRow [[http://squidrowcomics.com/?p=1216 I must be off to kick puppies!]]
* [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Vriska Serket]] has [[{{Catchphrase}} kicked all the dogs. All of them.]] And has even shot a couple, though she got shot back for at least one of those dogs.
** Although, the one time she fought an actual dog ([[spoiler:the BigBad Jack Noir]]) she was being heroic.
** In the Act 6 Act 3 intermission flash, Cronus acts pretty creepily to Meenah, but his really earns his status as a {{Jerkass}} when he goes off on an abusive rant to Mituna for something that very clearly wasn't his fault.
* In ''CaptainSNES'', Mother Brain (a HarmlessVillain in the show the comic is based on) takes it half-literally by smacking Captain N's dog Duke into a pit filled with [[{{Phlebotinum}} Omega Energy]] just to spite the Captain. This upsets not only her enemies, but also her henchman, King Hippo.
* In ''{{Endstone}}'', [[http://endstone.net/comic/issue-3-webpage-39/ Bolo literally smacks the dog, Gog, in the head with a chicken bone.]]
* In ''OurLittleAdventure'', Peganone, Eva and Randi were attacked by [[BigBad Angelo.]] Not only they [[CurbstompBattle lost the fight]], but Angelo ended up magically forcing the Paladin Eva to slay her own horse. The dramatic effect of this was lessened by her horse easily being able to outrun her, and Angelo getting bored and calling it off. It was still very cruel and unnecessary.
* In ''{{Sinfest}}'', [[http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=2817 Satan assures Slick that the spray was labortory tested on orphans.]]
* In ''Webcomic/MonsieurCharlatan'', [[http://monsieur-charlatan.com/archive/page-5/ Magda belligerently demands of Isidore when he last fed the cat.]]
* [[BigBad Zenith]], from ''Webcomic/CommanderKitty'' never misses an [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2009/06/12/the-tagged/ opportunity]] [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/07/04/nothing-like-a-good-rant/ to]] [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/07/25/whose-side-are-you-on/ insult]] [[http://www.commanderkitty.com/2010/08/01/armed-dangerous/ Nin Wah]] over her [[ArtificialLimb cyborg arm]].
* In ''Webcomic/DarthsAndDroids'' [[http://www.darthsanddroids.net/episodes/0774.html #774]], Vader blowing up Naboo with the Peace Moon (translation: [[Franchise/StarWars Alderaan with the Death Star]]). Discussed in TheRant:
--> '''The Comic Irregulars:''' If you're going to have your bad guy do something despicably evil by destroying something huge, make it something that the [[PlayerCharacter PCs]] care about. Something they've fought for and made sacrifices to save.\\
\\
Something they've actually heard of before.
* In ''Webcomic/UrbanUnderbrush'', [[http://www.lepusstudios.com/uu0151.html Clive tells Cassidy that Caius doesn't live there, he just drops in -- so he shouldn't be in on the gift exchange. Cut to a woe-begone Caius outside, holding a gift meant for Clive and thinking "I don't?"]]
* Used for an EstablishingCharacterMoment in ''Webcomic/{{Terra}}''. In a flashback apparent BigBad Solus Kalar orders one of his underlings to kill a human civilian in cold blood. When the underling attempts to fake it when Solus' back is turned he isn't fooled and hunts her down himself.
* In ''Webcomic/DistortionNuzlocke'', Blue kills Johnny's pet rat under his foot.
* Ludwig Von Koopa in ''WebAnimation/ADayWithBowserJr''. He freaking punches a defensless kid who tries to save Bowser Jr from his death!
