* Averted in ''[[RedVsBlue Red vs. Blue: Reconstruction]]'' - the Chairman of the Oversight Committee implies that their government has a series of moral guidelines for dealing with [=AIs=]. [[spoiler:After evidence that the Director of Project Freelancer tortured an AI in his experiments comes to light, the government decides to create a set of strict morality protocols.]]
** {{Subverted}}: In the Epilogue, the Director justifies his actions, [[spoiler:implying that the torture he inflicted on the Alpha AI was acceptable because it was created based on his own mind - he was essentially torturing ''himself''.]]
*** [[spoiler:Of course, even if the main characters knew this, it's highly unlikely they'd be inclined to forgive him. Wash, Meta, and Epsilon certainly haven't.]]
** And odds are same with the main Halo universe which ''[=RvB=]'' is based on.
* Averted in ''Machinima/FreemansMind''. Freeman has no problem killing anything trying to kill him, alien or human.
