* The ''Season 4'' Fan fics:
** ''4x09: Bitter Tasks'': [[TragicVillain Grant Ward]] ''did'' order PsychoForHire [[AxCrazy Brett]] [[DragonAscendant Petrie]] to murder May's ex-husband Andrew (as he blamed her for causing him to kill Kara), but he did not order (and was disturbed by) Petrie [[MoralEventHorizon brutally and graphically torturing Andrew]] [[ForTheEvulz just for his own sick amusement]]. Plus, since Andrew was innocent, he regretted targeting him in the first place as well.
** He also was against Petrie's torture and murder of Lincoln because Ward had no real problems with him and knew that Petrie doing so would deeply hurt Daisy and that's not something Ward wanted. He goes as far as to give Daisy back Lincoln's necklace to show he genuinely did not want it to happen and wished he could have prevented it.

* ''FanFic/TheLastStar'' has the characters compare the genocidal rampage of the Minbari with the one done years earlier by the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Dilgar]], and the Minbari come out unfavorably: the Minbari aim to kill all of mankind [[DisproportionateRetribution because one of them killed their leader in panic]] and treat it as a righteous crusade, while the Dilgar were killing anyone who was in their way to run from [[ApocalypseHow their sun going nova]] and considered it a necessary evil.

* ''Swing It Low'' has Harley Quinn overhearing a conversation between two men that implied [[DisposableSexWorker the murder of a prostitute]]. Despite the many terrible things that Harley had been party to, she had never killed a working girl, and found such a crime to be reprehensible. As she thought to herself, they dealt with enough trouble as it was and worked really hard just to eke out a living.

* A highly puzzling case in ''Fanfic/{{Downfall}}''. The main villain is advocating genocide of the Gotei, instigate a bloody war that claims many lives [[spoiler:including named characters and fan favorites]]. Yet the changes instigated among the Arrancar the policy is 'don't eat wholes - or each other'. Furthermore, their opponents are shown executing enemy wounded at the conclusion of chapter 20. And who is this BigBad, by the way? Why... [[spoiler: Unohana]] of course!

* When Xander goes to kill Ethan Rayne in ''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-8932-3/Psyckosama+Hunter.htm Hunter]]'' for helping the mayor by providing a distraction in order to collect his tribute, Ethan is horrified to learn that the tribute was [[WouldntHurtAChild babies]] that were being fed to a demon.

* In ''FanFic/ShadowOfTheDragon'', an AntiMagic assassin targeting Sakura [[VillainousRescue saves her]] from being [[AttemptedRape raped]] by school bully Satome, [[KickTheSonOfABitch brutally]] [[{{Fingore}} punishing]] the latter for trying to do so and remarking that only the "worst of scum" would stoop so low.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9301488/12/%E5%84%9F%E9%82%84%E3%81%AE%E3%83%AB%E3%83%AB%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B7%E3%83%A5-Code-Geass-Lelouch-of-the-Redemption Lelouch of the Redemption]]'', the Saitama slaughter is shown to be Cornelia's ''last'' resort to drawing out Zero rather than her first. She hates having to order a massacre against civilians but acknowledges that every other plan to smoke Zero out has failed so she's forced to use the one action she knows will work. Furthermore, she has the civilian populace know in advance that she's attacking Saitama so she can at least claim anyone remaining is a terrorist collaborator.
* ''Fanfic/CodeGeassThePreparedRebellion'':
** Charles once had to look through the mind of a noble so deviant and depraved he couldn't eat for the rest of the day. Lelouch upon learning this wondered exactly how bad it had to have been to do so.
** The Yamato Alliance is filled with the worst of the former Japanese society, but they draw the line at selling [[FantasticDrug Refrain]] to their own people. The main reason they dislike [[HateSink Tetsuya]] so much and refuse to let him rise high is because they know he was thrown out of the Kōzuki Cell for running a Refrain racket.

* In ''[[{{Fanfic/TiberiumWars}} Tiberium Wars]]'', the Brotherhood of Nod draws the line at rape, and authorizes summary execution for any soldier caught in the process. To emphasize this point, at one point a Nod soldier attempts to rape [[spoiler:GDI Intelligence officer Sandra Telfair, who has been briefly captured.]] Before he can start, though, [[spoiler:[[WarriorMonk Brother-Captain Allen]] of the [[EvilArmy Black Hand]] [[DynamicEntry smashes down the door]], and [[VillainousRescue beats the would-be-rapist's face against a wall before chucking him out a window]].]] The Brotherhood takes this kind of thing seriously. They go so far as to declare it a ''sin against [[DarkMessiah Kane]]''.

* In ''Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar'', as told by [[BeingEvilSucks Edge]], not every griffon wants to murder the ponies and they're most likely unaware of [[spoiler:Red Cyclone]]'s EvilPlan.
* In ''FanFic/BloodDoesntMakeFamily'', [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Crowley]], [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils King of the Crossroads]], is moved to take action against the [[Franchise/HarryPotter Dursleys for their abuse of Harry Potter.]]
* Colonel Moran makes a ''very'' complicated case in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime''. He's more than willing to kill a seventeen-year-old girl -- even rape her -- but he also respects her unconditional love for Literature/SherlockHolmes and appears to understand it even better than Holmes himself does.
* In ''Fanfic/DeadOrAlive4TheDevilFactor'', [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Vergil]] explicitly tells [[VideoGame/DeadOrAlive Donovan]] that he hopes that he doesn't use the [[ExpendableClone numerous Kasumi clones]] he uses for household staff as sex objects, to which Donovan reassures him that such an act is beneath him. Later, while trying to track down and capture Ayame to [[spoiler:discover the location of one of the {{MacGuffin}}s he's looking for]], Vergil adamantly refuses to send [[spoiler:Raidou]] after her, knowing he has [[SexualHarassmentAndRapeTropes other plans]] in mind.
* In the ''Fanfic/ChristianHumberReloaded'' webcomic [[note]]A crossover of several fictional universes with a GodModeSue main character[[/note]], the main character (a SociopathicHero who has no qualms about mass murder and will [[DisproportionateRetribution kill entire families in revenge]]) [[http://christianhumberreloaded.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/47723 happens upon the webcomic author talking on his cell phone]] about how he's going to make a webcomic mocking the fic. His response? "You sound like an ASSHOLE!"
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5542488/1/Cullin_of_the_Fold Cullin' of the Fold]]'', a Redwall fic that's a Mary Sue and Twilight parody, the female protagonist is captured by a quintet of vermin. When two of them begin to poke and prod her, she jumps to the conclusion that they intend to rape her and says so, adding that she won't fight back if they'll just let her go afterwards, leading to this exchange:
-->'''Petula''': Look ... I have a pretty good idea what you're going to do. I won't fight, if you want. I don't want to make trouble. Just get it over with and let me go.
-->'''Raz''': Er, Riggy? Tuftail? I fink yer might be givin' 'er the wrong idea.
-->'''Riggy and Tuftail''': Wot? (they realise what Raz means) EW!
-->'''Thunder''': Wot's she talkin' about? (Eyeshine whispers an explanation) Yuck! Why'd we wanna do that?
-->'''Eyeshine''': I have no idea, Thunder old friend. She's heard too many lurid adventuring stories, I suppose. Silly beast. 'Oooh, we're vermin, we're evil! Must go do evil things!' We'd never dream of doing that! It's sick and twisted and disrespectful to femalekind as a whole, and frankly it's disrespectful to us to assume that we'd do such a thing! I apologise if my followers have misled you in such a manner, and I'm sure they do too. Right, buckoes?
-->'''Riggy''': Yes! I mean no! I mean yes ... No! No, we're not gonna do that! Me sister would kill me!
-->'''Raz''': Damn right I would, Riggs. We was brung up better'n that! 'Sides, yer don't know where she's been. Yer could catch stuff.
** [[spoiler:[[ZigZaggedTrope They then proceed to kill her, eat her, and wear her skin, which, within the canon, is perfectly normal behaviour for vermin]].]]
* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', Lucius Malfoy is a cold, ruthless manipulator and murderer who has an attitude towards Muggles reminiscent of a Dalek, considering them to be animals (though he does make the occasional exception -- Nick Fury is a WorthyOpponent, for instance). But Gravemoss's levels [[AxCrazy of]] [[OmnicidalManiac evil]] utterly horrify him. There are some things you simply don't do to, even to animals.
** And believe it or not, even Gravemoss has a line he won't cross. He'll use the [[ArtifactOfDoom Darkhold's]] magic to increase his own, sure, but even ''he's'' not insane enough to tap into its full power and unleash [[GodOfEvil Cthon]] on the world.
* In ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/235720/dark-horse-a-five-score-tale-from-the-dresden-files Dark Horse — A Five Score Tale From The Dresden Files]]'', Harry recounts an incident when a ghoul tried to [[EatsBabies snatch a baby out of a stroller.]] The local gang took umbrage, and by took umbrage we mean filled it with bullets, then set it on fire.
* The Scarecrow's comments in ''FanFic/ADarkKnightOverSinCity'' indicate that he cares very little about the rest of the Franchise/{{Batman}} Rogues Gallery and found [[SinCity The Yellow Bastard]] "distasteful". Then again, the guy was working with him.
* The FusionFic ''Fanfic/DeathNoteEquestria'' plays with this. Twilight, as Kira, feels that she's NecessarilyEvil and therefore doesn't get to have standards. However, that still doesn't stop her from flipping out whenever someone else crosses the line, and when tying up loose ends after her MemoryGambit, she can't bring herself to kill [[spoiler:Apple Bloom]] (notably the only time she couldn't go through with killing someone).
** [[{{Shinigami}} Byuk]] is less evil and more of an amoral force of nature, but even he was disgusted when Twilight [[spoiler:engineered Rarity and Pinkie's deaths]] in order to weasel her way onto L's team.
* In FusionFic ''EventHorizonStormOfMagic'', The Company™ is a ruthless and opportunistic MegaCorp from future Earth, but even they are disgusted by the levels of violence, mistreatment of women, and downright genocidal tendencies exhibited by native factions. Of course, being The Company™, they use this as an excuse to further justify their own actions against these natives.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4495293/1/Harry-Potter-and-the-Dark-Knight Harry Potter and the Dark Knight]]'', even Umbridge (who is part of the reason Harry is on trial in the first place) is unsettled by Harry's raw emotional outburst when he protests his innocence before he is wrongfully thrown into Azkaban.
* While Harry isn't evil per se in ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8501689/1/The-Havoc-side-of-the-Force The Havoc Side of the Force]]'', he does admit to being a mercenary, thief, pirate, murderer, and (depending on your point of view) kidnapper. However, he refuses to tolerate slavery, so when he robs a Hutt as part of a job, he makes sure to free every slave and bring them to safety. On a later job to rescue someone from a mercenary stronghold, he adds saving any slaves present as an additional primary objective.
** PlayedForLaughs later when he wonders if he could learn to weaponize C390's infuriating politeness, then decides he'd deserve to be tried for war crimes if he ever did.
* ''Fanfic/SOE2LoneHeirOfKrypton'': Fuyutsuki has several moments showing this throughout the fic, such as chewing out Gendo over not even ''trying'' to feign concern over his son, and [[spoiler:almost having a heart attack when Gendo tells him he's starting to crack the Scroll's intel on the Anti-Life Equation.]]
* ''Fanfic/AHero'', a crossover between ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', features [[SociopathicHero Dalek Sec]] talking morals with [[WellIntentionedExtremist Kyubey]] and giving him a verbal smackdown (followed by an actual smackdown) for manipulating the course of human civilization and stripping them of their right to self-determination.
-->'''QB:''' [[YouDidntAsk They never asked]].
-->'''QB:''' Such techniques were necessary for the efficiency of the plan. I don't understand, you are an advanced species, yet you cling to such primitive concepts like emotion like a younger race. It's confusing, [[StrawVulcan higher levels of technology can only be obtained by dedicating the mind to logic]]. How can you be so advanced?
-->'''Sec:''' BE-CAUSE WE ''WAN-TED'' TO BE!
--> [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill *Vreeem! Vreeem!]] [[MoreDakka Vreeem! Vreeem!*]]
* ''Fanfic/{{Kage}}'': Jade is surprised to find that Raythor, despite being one of [[EvilOverlord Phobos']] staunchest and loyalist supporters, still has a [[NobleDemon code of honor]], refusing at first to drag a child (namely her) into their conflict, and being disgusted at how the Guardians and rebels treated her.
* In ''Fanfic/AFrogInArkhamAsylum'', by the same author as ''Fanfic/{{Kage}}'', [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum Hugo Strange's]] thought on performing ColdBloodedTorture [[WouldHurtAChild on children]] is part this, part PragmaticVillainy. He doesn't condone it, but it's not as effective as on adults, so he doesn't really see any point to doing it.
* In ''FanFic/LittleBlackDeathNote'', [[Manga/DeathNote Kira]] is secretly disgusted with [[OriginalCharacter Marukai]].
* ''Fanfic/MassEffectHumanRevolution''
** In chapter 17, a black ops commando leader who WouldHurtAChild in order to LeaveNoWitnesses is disgusted that a subordinate wants to rape their target. Although it's ambiguous as to whether it's really out of standards or because [[FantasticRacism said target]] is a [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Bioroid]].
** In chapter 38, another bunch of Blacklight troops try to wiggle their way out of the killing kids thing and are disgusted at one of their number who has no such qualms.
* ''Fanfic/{{Equestrylvania}}'': As it turns out, [[spoiler:while Marble/White Dwarf willingly joined Dracula's minions, she was still moral enough to refuse orders to poison the foals in Ponyville hospital. Of course, this just led to [[WickedWitch Actrise]] [[DemonicPossession possessing]] her to get it done.]]
* In ''Fanfic/NoHoper'', [[TheBaroness Neferet]] is quite angry when she learns that the human scientists were experimenting on and killing children in their search for a Vampyre cure.
* In ''[[FanFic/SovereignGFCOrigins Origins]]'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[[spoiler:[=/=]''[=Borderlands=]''[=/=]''[=Halo=]'']] MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, this is [[EnforcedTrope enforced]] InUniverse by the Trans-Galactic Republic with regard to most large-scale smuggling in their galaxy due to an agreement with said smugglers that the smugglers themselves proposed through one of their more [[OnlySaneMan level-headed]] members. If the largest groups (the "Band of Brothers") avoid certain types of cargo (slaves, [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil prostitution]], dangerous drugs, ''military-grade hardware''), then the government will essentially look the other way instead of levying a [[IntimidatingRevenueService huge tax]] on legitimate shippers to pay for anti-piracy campaigns.
* In ''Fanfic/ThePrayerWarriors'', when Michael is infiltrating [[Franchise/HarryPotter Hogwarts]], this trope is [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] when Ginny says she doesn't have sex with [[BrotherSisterIncest her brother Ron]] because, in her words, "Even Satanists have standards." It ends up being subverted when it's later suggested that they had sex. If you consider the Prayer Warriors evil, however, this can be seen as applying to Draco, who wants to kill Dumbledore out of sheer homophobia, getting upset when Michael suggests that Ebony sleep with Harry to get his key.
* ''FanFic/AShadowOfTheTitans'': From [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Raven]]'s perspective, [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures Jade]], who never actively causes trouble, seeks peaceful alternatives, and doesn't take advantage of Raven being unconscious to hurt her, saying it wouldn't be right.
** For a straighter example, when Jade and Blackfire face each other in the Tournament of Villainesses, Blackfire is willing to let Jade surrender, as she doesn't want to fight a child. Though when Jade doesn't give up, it doesn't stop her from trying to pummel her.
** Also, even the other HIVE villains find the AxCrazy Gadjo a bit disturbing.
** Even ''Gadjo'' has standards, believe it or not, as he thinks [[BloodKnight fighting is about fighting]], not [[LargeHam big speeches]] or special effects, like [[PowerOfTheStorm Susano]] was doing in the HIVE entrance exam. He also hates zombies and finds the creation of them vile.
* The website Website/StarDestroyerDotNet, concerning the question of whether TheEmpire from ''StarWars'' would beat TheFederation from ''Franchise/StarTrek'' in a war, is written in the character of an Imperial officer. When confronted with Federation transporter technology, [[http://www.stardestroyer.net/Empire/Tech/Special/Special1.html he notes that]] "Although some might claim that life continues if a precise duplicate is created from the original, many feel that the discontinuity of consciousness represents death. This ''may'' be regarded as a mere philosophical issue, but our officers and scientists are unanimous in their condemnation of this process as an unconscionable concept", referring to philosophical and moral issues surrounding the technology. This [[FridgeBrilliance makes sense]] when you consider the facts: the Federation is a generally [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions atheistic]] society, while in the Empire you have the very spiritual Jedi and Sith, scientific knowledge of the Force, and the proven existence of Force Ghosts.
* In ''FanFic/StargateEquestria'', when Teal'c and O'Neill question the Jaffa pegasi who ponynapped the Cutie Mark Crusaders, he admits to being ready to interrogate them but is offended at the idea that they'd torture them.
-->''""We would not have hurt them. We will do what we must to serve our goddess, but we are not needlessly cruel."''
* In ''Fanfic/SuperSentaiVsPowerRangersTheLiveblog'', [[Series/ChoujinSentaiJetman Tranza and Radiguet]], two of the darkest villains in ''Sentai'', are utterly disgusted by the fanfic Rika reads, ''Fanfic/SuperSentaiVsPowerRangers''. Primarily because of how out-of-character they are in the fanfic itself, among other things wrong with it.
-->'''Radiguet''': "...I will admit this. The Scouts were right all along. That story was just...terrible! Seriously...that Radiguet has no backbone, no lust for power! Just lust over something completely ridiculous!"
* In ''Fanfic/WhenThereWasATomorrow'': [[Franchise/MassEffect Jack]], a homicidal girl with a HairTriggerTemper and utter contempt for almost everyone, is ''nauseated'' [[spoiler: by a video on [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Brute]] [[IAmAHumanitarian eating habits]].]]
* ''Fanfic/{{XSGCOM}}'':
** Anubis thinks that Loki's WellIntentionedExtremist plan to be accepted back as the savior of his race is delusional. And this from the man who wishes to eradicate all life in the galaxy.
** That being said, Loki thinks that Anubis is less of the MagnificentBastard he portrays himself as, and is more along the lines of StupidEvil.
* A rare example of the ostensible hero committing the evil act is in ''FanFic/YouGotHaruhiRolled''. While [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Haruhi]] is on trial in a KangarooCourt, she threatens to kill Kyon's sister, who is one of the witnesses, because Haruhi interpreted her testimony as insulting the SOS Brigade. Even [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Ultros]], who is pressing charges against Haruhi and is rigging the trial so that he will win, finds this abominable. [[PragmaticVillainy So of course he uses this as further evidence.]]
* An unusual case -- President Sneer during ''Fanfic/KingdomHeartsTheThirdEpic'' uses the Dragon Balls more sparingly than in their home series, and in fact at the end of the second war refuses to use them on the people who died in war again, due to this causing the Dark Axis uprising last time. Wolfang Richler, from ''Fanfic/KingdomHeartsNewEpicTheFirst'' -- set in the same verse -- finds this behaviour utterly despicable, as well as selfish. This is the same Wolfang who casually explodes people with his mind, gave a now elderly Sora a wasting disease, and is spreading chaos simply to fulfil TheHero's "desires".
* A surprise case given we weren't let in on much of his canon personality is Monster X in ''FanFic/TheBridge''. While he was the vanguard of the Xilian war-machine and is aligned with the BigBad, we do get to see him without mind control for the first time upon arriving in Equestria, and he turns out to be a NobleDemon. Doesn't hesitate to kill when he sees necessary, but considers thoughtless destruction a waste and fighting/killing those who are defenseless cowardly. Even extends to saving an endangered pony's life from another kaiju and bandaging said equine up afterwards before ditching them. Later, when ordered to gather sources of magic, he refuses to kidnap sentient beings and resolves to just gather artifacts.
* In the ''Manga/SailorMoon''/''Anime/CuteyHoney'' fanfic ''Venus Flash'', Jadeite is utterly horrified when he finds out the owner of the jewelry he's planning to use for an energy-stealing plan has a habit of [[WaxMuseumMorgue kidnapping beautiful girls and encases them into plastic to preserve their beauty]], and reacts by marching down to her jewelry to sack it and murder her (he was originally planning to simply kidnap her for the duration of the scheme, as his youma do with the owner of the jewelry ultimately used to carry it). Also, one of his youma is a rapist monster, and Jadeite was planning to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kill him as soon as he wasn't useful anymore]] (and actually complains he doesn't get the chance when he gets killed).
* A fairly common joke among the Disney fandom is to have [[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella DeVille]] invoke disgust in the other Disney villains (even individuals as evil as ''[[Disney/SleepingBeauty Maleficent]]'') for her plan of *GASP* [[FurAndLoathing wanting to kill puppies for a fur coat]]! Perhaps it's because it's harder to try and justify such a goal without looking selfish?
* [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Team Rocket]] may be thieves but in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7427427/1/Team-Zero Team Zero]]'' they still scold Louise for bringing up Kirche's past, largely since each of them has a DarkAndTroubledPast.
* In ''Fanfic/SoulHunter'', Hollow Ichigo says he would never GroinAttack another man as that's just wrong.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11102515/2/Uncle-Quentin-s-Spy Uncle Quentin's Spy]]'' Sirius assures Dumbledore that not even the Blacks would have dabbled in demon summoning.
* ''Fanfic/ThousandShinji'':
** After finding [[spoiler:one of the victims of SEELE and learn about the fates of their mothers,]] Shinji thinks “And people would call me a monster?”
--->And they would dare to call me a monster after what they have done?\\
THEY had done this. Done this to me. Done this to Asuka. Done this to Hikari. Done this to Toji. Done this to them all.\\
Malicious aforethought would have been preferable, but this monstrosity was so much worse. It treated them all as things, simple tools without thoughts or emotions. Did they think we would not care for the cruel indignities placed upon us, even the secret, bitterly ironic ones? Even I understood to hide the evidence more carefully than this for fear of the retaliation of my victims.
** Even ''[[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Tzeentch, God of Manipulation, Trickery and Backstabbing]]'' thinks Gendo is a prick.
* ''FanFic/SonOfTheSevenKingdoms'': WordOfGod has shot down the fan theory that [[TheCaligula Joffrey]] will become the champion of a Daedric Prince by stating that the more reasonable Daedra would be disgusted by his pettiness and cruelty, while the more outright evil ones would be put off by his [[StupidEvil stupidity]] and shortsightedness.
* [[Franchise/GIJoe Cobra Commander]] from the hilarious ''[[http://www.patheos.com/blogs/daylightatheism/series/atlas-shrugged/the-cobra-commander-dialogues/ Atlas Shrugged: The Cobra Commander Dialogues]]'' is routinely surprised by the sheer lack of compassion and basic human empathy displayed by [[Literature/AtlasShrugged the book's]] heroes.
** At one point Hank Rearden considers murdering his mistress before settling for brutally violent sex instead. [[CardCarryingVillain Cobra Commander]], a ''literal cartoon villain'', is disturbed by this.
** In one of the book's most legendary scenes, tens of people are [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill repeatedly killed]] in a drawn-out train accident. The narrator implies they deserved it for commiting heinous crimes such as [[DisproportionateRetribution taking a loan from the government or loving her children more than her job]]. After hearing about the narrator's plans, Cobra Commander calls [[MadScientist Doctor Mindbender]] to build a teleport machine [[BreakingTheFourthWall undetectable even to omniscient narrators]] to send those poor innocent people to safety and replace them with life-sized dummies the author can kill in their place.
---> '''Cobra Commander:''' Well, we may be a ruthless terrorist organization but even I’m not going to stand by and let someone blow up some innocent little kids and let them die from fire and asphyxiation because I think that they deserve it!
---> '''Doctor Mindbender:''' Yes… that does seem like an incredibly pointless and stupid kind of evil.
** He becomes livid with rage after finding out that a doctor has found a cure for strokes but he's refusing to share it with anybody in the outside world because he'd rather have them die than share his research with "unworthy" people.
---> '''Cobra Commander:''' I work with arms dealers, con men, mad scientists, and even a man who was literally constructed out of the DNA of all of the worst people in the history of the world. And I have met so many atrocious 'heroes' in my visit through this pathetic ensemble you have assembled and you, sir, are the absolute most horrid human being I have ever met in my entire life. You're not even a person anymore. You are a monster.
* [[Manga/{{Hellsing}} Rip Van Winkle]] in the backstory for ''[[''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9547582/1/Zero-s-Bullet Zero's Bullet]]'' wasn't supposed to kill the traitorous British naval officers. She did so because even if they're joining her side, she can't stand traitors.

* In ''Fanfic/AllYouNeedIsLove'', [[TheAggressiveDrugDealer Takeshi the heroin dealer]] gives Light a few free pointers on how to avoid getting drugged and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil raped]] by [[DepravedHomosexual L]].
--> '''Takeshi''' (to Light): Have you been watching what you drink, he's probably spiked everything you touch.
--> '''Light:''' I know he does, thank you for the advice.
* In ''FanFic/ACharmedLife'', Sidoh is freaked out by Light and some other Shinigami complain about Kira's kill count, telling him to "Save some for the rest of us!"
* In ''FanFic/ACureForLove'', [[VillainProtagonist Light]] is enraged that [[WesternTerrorists Astraea]] would kill in his name when [[NeverHurtAnInnocent innocents are getting caught in the crossfire.]] And [[spoiler:V,]] an unrepentant ProfessionalKiller shakes in terror after Light [[spoiler:[[SelfMadeOrphan uses the death of his father]] to advance his plans]] and shows no remorse afterwards. Later, there's the instance where Light scolds Mikami for [[spoiler:opening death camps]] because that's going a little too far even for him, and it's [[PragmaticVillainy not as efficient and well-controlled as his method of mass murder.]]
* In ''{{FanFic/Hypocrite}}'', Light is sickened at the thought of [[GodwinsLaw being compared to Hitler.]]
* In ''[[FanFic/LowLight Low Light]]'', [[VillainProtagonist Light/Kira]] is horrified when he learns that [[FallenHero L]] [[spoiler:[[BurnTheOrphanage blew up an orphanage]]]] [[LoveMakesYouEvil in order to protect him.]] [[PunctuatedForEmphasis "THEY WERE A THREAT!"]]
* In ''[[FanFic/MonsterADeathNoteAU Monster]]'', there's the instance where ''[[CardCarryingVillain Ryuk]]'' warns L about Light.
-->'''Ryuk:''' You should watch out for your friend there. [[CuteAndPsycho Freaking insane.]]
* From the MetaFic ''FanFic/ThingsThatCantBeUnseen'', where the ''Death Note'' characters discover OhCrapThereAreFanficsOfUs:
-->'''Mello:''' [[ArsonMurderAndAdmiration Wow, I have to admit, I'm impressed.]] Who knew all it would take to unnerve the almighty Kira was a couple of pages of poorly written smut?
* In the [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] ''Fanfic/ThoseWhoStandForNothingFallForAnything'', Matt's [[JerkAss dickery]] and his treatment of Naomi disgusts Light. Also, [[AmoralAttorney L]] is against destroying the country just to advance politically. Also, [[spoiler:L abuses Light really badly. Light claims he would ''never'' be that sadistic with L.]]

[[AC: ''Franchise/DragonBall'']]
* In [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11767392/1/Frigid-Future Frigid Future]], even Cooler is horrified by the way Launch dies, being absorbed by Cell simply because he found her attempt to get Cooler to leave [[ForTheEvulz annoying.]]

* In ''FanFic/NeverHadAFriendLikeMe'', [[JerkassGenie Norm's]] lava lamp falls into the possession of a little girl named [[OriginalCharacter Amanda]]. Her [[ParentalNeglect parents aren't]] [[AbusiveParents that nice]]. And even though Norm is annoyed or hates just about every human on the planet, he still thinks that Amanda's life is just not fair and tends to avoid LoopholeAbuse when it comes to her wishes.
** [[spoiler:When asked why he saved Timmy from the Pixies and Anti-Fairies, Norm admits that while he still doesn't ''like'' Timmy, [[CharacterDevelopment he doesn't have it in him to want him dead anymore]]. He even admits he was even going to save Timmy even if Amanda wasn't there, since he now recognizes that Timmy is good for Amanda]].

* In the fic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9182801/1/Truth-Uncertainty-and-Tomorrow Truth, Uncertainty, and Tomorrow]], a ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer'' AU set in 19th century Russia, Katyusha's father, a [[AristocratsAreEvil Russian aristocrat]] who believes he has a right to the maidenhood of his subjects and thinks nothing of raping his servants, says he draws the line at his family, especially his daughter. Unfortunately, Nonna, a maid who overheard this, soon finds out from him that [[MoralEventHorizon his standards on rape don't apply to her]].

* In ''Fanfic/TheSacredAndTheProfane'', the other demons are so creeped out by Zirah's behavior that [[BarredFromTheAfterlife they kicked him out of Hell.]]
-->''You'd start off having a perfectly normal conversation with Zirah, [[DissonantSerenity everything would be going smoothly,]] [[AffablyEvil you started wondering why he was a demon anyway,]] and then he went and did something so horrifically, darkly unpleasant that you stopped wondering why he wasn't in Heaven and started wondering why he was in Hell. You really thought they'd create some whole new level for him to operate from.''

* ''First Impressions'' quotes Murdoc as saying "I don't do little kids or [[DudeShesLikeInAComa coma patients]], and for the record [[BestialityIsDepraved that thing with the cat]] [[NoodleIncident was taken entirely out of context!"]] The "little kids" bit is presumably true. [[spoiler:He ''almost'' "did a coma patient", but [[NearRapeExperience changed his mind]].]]

* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8095859/9/Blood-Matters Blood Matters]]'', Voldemort is upset by Umbridge's detention methods because "he was a bloody Dark Lord and even he wouldn't condone the use of a blood quill on innocent school children."
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8046571/6/The-Diadone-Method The Diadone Method]]'' Sirius finds out that an adopted and renamed Harry is a wizard.
-->'''Sirius:''' Fuck me now.\\
'''Harry:''' That's called pedophilia, and kinda looked down upon. Even in the Mafia there are some rules that were ''not'' made to be broken.
* In the ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4520403/1/The-Dungeon-Books The Dungeon Books]]'' Dumbledore, upset that Harry hasn't grown up at the Dursleys', claims that not living under his mother's protection made him Dark and a potential puppet for Voldemort, then advocates ''killing a fourteen-year-old''. This causes a mass exodus of Order members - including Mundungus Fletcher, because "He may own the loosest morals of the Order, but not even he could condone Harry's murder."
* In ''{{FanFic/Heir}}'', Voldemort (or rather [[spoiler:the Horcrux in Harry's scar that gains sentience]]) is sickened by the Dursleys' treatment of Harry. Also OriginalCharacter Lethfyren Malfoy, a Mind Healer of shady repute that Voldemort hires (and who Tom calls "a monster") will NOT [[WouldntHurtAChild "do kids."]] Voldemort himself is strongly against his followers abusing their children, though he seemingly has no problems killing them, since he was quite happy to kill at least two children before the events of the story. But then Voldie has a soft spot in his cold black heart for [[MoralMyopia wizarding children - -not muggle children.]]
* {{Lampshaded}} in the [[AlternateUniverseFic AU]] ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9119753/1/The-Indecipherable-Riddle The Indecipherable Riddle]]'', where Harry is reluctant to share details about his childhood or the Dursleys address with his newly found [[LukeIAmYourFather parents]] ([[PapaWolf Voldemort]] and [[MamaBear Bellatrix Lestrange]]) because [[KickTheSonOfABitch now it's inevitable that Dursleys are going to end up dead]] because "no one treats our baby like that, least of all muggles." [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids Also, Bellatrix may be psychotic, but she's a pureblood witch and believes her son should be raised with proper manners, and Voldemort scolds Harry about his less than stellar grades in school.]]
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/4846405/8/McGill McGill]]'' the Dursleys end up in prison for abusing Harry and his uncle's new cellmate comments "I'm in here for armed robbery, but at least I'm not someone who needs to hit a kid."
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9950453/1/My-Child-Not-Yours My Child Not Yours]]'' Voldemort changes his mind about killing Harry after James and Lily decide to abandon him to save themselves because "It was true that he, Tom Marvolo Riddle, was a Dark Lord, but that didn't mean he would go so far as to kill a fellow orphan." [[FridgeLogic Never mind that he attempts just that in canon]]...
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7162508/2/Ruby-Tinted-Glasses Ruby Tinted Glasses]]'' it's revealed during Sirius' will reading that Dumbledore has been dipping into the Potter vaults and giving much of it to the Dursleys and Weasleys.
-->'''Narcissa Malfoy:''' Even my family wouldn't stoop so low as to steal money from a child.
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5286735/13/Steps-In-Life Steps in Life]]'' Bellatrix Lestrange weeps after being ordered to do the one thing she's sworn never to do - kill innocent children.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8145031/1/Slytherin-Heir Slytherin Heir]]'', Voldemort is outraged upon hearing that Umbridge had such a dark artifact as a blood quill anywhere near the students of Hogwarts, let alone was using it on the children for her detentions, and his Death Eaters all have similar reactions:
--> ''"I have received news that that woman Umbridge is using a Blood Quill in her detentions at Hogwarts."\\
The room exploded into chaos.\\
"What! How dare she!"\\
"A Blood Quill? How many has she used it on?"\\
"She better not have used that on my child! If she has even thought about it, I'll mount her head on my wall."\\
"Is the Minister aware? Did he authorize this?"\\
"Why have we not heard about this until now? She should be in Azkaban for using it even once!"\\
"Forget Azkaban! I say we storm Hogwarts, kill her, and hang her bloody body off the ramparts!" Bellatrix declared with a maniacal laugh.''
* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10021286/14/The-Hufflepuff-Chronicles-Year-of-the-Stone The Hufflepuff Chronicles: Year of the Stone]]'':
-->Growing up Mickey had lived in an abusive household and he hated anyone who would hit a child. He knew he wasn't a good person and had done some bad things in his life, but children were strictly off limits.
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6831126/1/The-Truth-Revealed The Truth Revealed]]'', Lucius Malfoy looks visibly ill when it [[ShapeshifterGuiltTrip appears]] that Voldemort is torturing Harry to death in front of Dumbledore. "Lucius could torture any adult without flinching, but when it came to children... he hated it, as did most of the Death Eaters, especially those with children of their own. Voldemort himself didn't like it, but this case was different. Very different."
* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11123742/20/The-Vanishing-Cabinet-Of-Time The Vanishing Cabinet of Time]]'' Sirius mentions the time his father caught his brother Regulus reading a book their parents forgot to remove from the Black library.
-->'''Regulus:''' What are Horcruxes, Father?\\
'''Orion Black:''' Something you will never involve yourselves in or I will destroy you myself, then do the same when I meet you in Hell.
* In ''[[http://www.potionsandsnitches.net/fanfiction/viewstory.php?sid=2095 When the Boat Comes In]]'' it's mentioned that due to Lucius Malfoy's standards prohibiting him from killing children and Muggles, Voldemort sent him on assassination missions and nothing else during the first wizarding war.

''[[AC: Literature/HerculePoirot]]''
* In ''Fanfic/TheLondonSyndicate'', the titular syndicate will not stoop to murder. Anything else is fair game, though.

* In both canon and the fanfic ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'', the Church of the Mirthful Messiahs is a ReligionOfEvil in which [[HumanSacrifice troll sacrifice]] is a normal part of worship. In Hivefledverse, the worshippers are by rights supposed to perform [[DueToTheDead the last rites]] to free the souls of their victims and send them on to be honoured guests of the gods at the Dark Carnival. Many subjugglators don't bother with the rites for those who don't volunteer - "don't want to be clogging up death with a bunch of revered lowbloods" - thus leaving them to wander the crossroads as part of the "hivemind nightmares". The Grand Highblood takes it a step further into horribleness by binding the souls of his victims to himself and using them as puppets to torture his future victims. Gamzee is horrified to find out, and attempts to free them; so far he's only managed to bind them to himself instead, but that's still an improvement.
* The FanFic/GoldenAge series describes this as the difference between "minor asshole" and "major asshole" pirates, and this is one of the reasons a lot of troll pirates are willing to work with the United Galaxies over the empire.

[[AC: ''Series/HowToRock'']]
* In the Zolly (Molly/Zander) fanfic "Perf Down," after Molly gets Amnesia from being hit by a car, Kasey and Stevie convince her that her original life involved working for Gravity 5 and they make her their ButtMonkey (against Zander's advice). When Molly gets her memory back, she confronts them all and tells Kasey that she never would have stooped so low and done something like that to her.

* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'' has several examples:
** When Tarakudo is conjured by Uncle and Tohru for interrogation, he compliments Jade's progress, and then offhandedly comments that she'd make a good consort when she's older. When Uncle and Tohru show their disgust over this, he responds that he did say when she was older, saying that he does have standards.
** And Viper may be a thief (albeit a reformed one), but she refuses to take part in Jade's plans.
*** [[spoiler:Jade recruits her by--[[ArtifactOfDoom among]] [[SuperPoweredEvilSide other]] [[TheCorruption things]]--forcibly regressing Viper's moral stance back to that of the [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatic thief]] she was when they first met.]]
** When Jade contorts herself into a snake shape without knowing how to change back, she commands one of the nearby Enforcers to squeeze her until she shifts back to normal. Finn immediately backs away, as he finds the idea of putting his hands on a kid like that just a bit too discomforting, even if she isn't human.
** Tarakudo considers it, but simply can't bring himself to simply abandon one of his own kind to torture and death, even though he knows her goal is to overthrow him.
** When Hak Foo learned of Valmont's attempt to betray Jade, he mentally and internally reproved the idea because "philosophy of quid pro quo and contracts were the closest thing the mercenary had to honor". Note that, since "his agreement to Chan's girl did not technically cover this", he still decided to take a wait and see policy over that.
** When Jade is forced by Ikazuki to attack Uncle's store, even to the point of using the (albeit unspoken) threat of using Molotov Cocktails to burn them out if they try to hide in the warded store (as in, she can't enter) to force them out, she seems to be a little ashamed about it, and she later admits that she wants to prove herself BETTER than the other foes the Chans have faced, NOT more underhanded.
** When making a bet with the Enforcers, Jade says that she follows the standards she sets for herself. She ''does'' seem to be as big a fan of ExactWords[=/=]LoopholeAbuse as ever, so when she needs to swallow a sandwich whole for the bet, she simply uses her contortionist abilities to unhinge her jaw, saying that while she promised not to use magic, that ''wasn't'' magic.
** Later, during Operation Steel Lightning, [[spoiler:when Jade gives control of Black's body to General Ozeki, she orders him not to kill anyone when he attacks Section 13 as a diversion for her stealing the masks]].
** Also, even though Daolon Wong wasn't of any use to her, she didn't kill him (though she did keep him close and locked up, because she's remembers what happened when Shendu left Daolon Wong be after betraying him).
** The Mexican mafia avoid using magic, [[PragmaticVillainy as they find it too dangerous and potentially world-threatening]]. More specifically, they work hard to make sure no one accidentally uncovers the Vault of Endless Night and releases the [[SealedEvilInACan evils sealed within]].
** Also, during Jade's VillainousBreakdown, where she [[spoiler: [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashes Viper]] with Ikazuki's chi and turns her into her loyal general [[TheDragon Hebi]]]], she is profusely apologizing almost the entire time, saying that [[spoiler: she would have preferred Viper willingly joining her.]]
** In relation to the above, Hak Foo says that while he doesn't quite object to [[spoiler: Viper's brainwashing]], he's still disturbed by it. As well as by the depths of darkness and madness that Jade is slipping into.
** Hebi states that even a dark samurai still has honor, and that's why she won't kill Jackie even when she has the perfect opportunity in the Hall of Ice, since he had just [[SaveTheVillain saved hers]].
** Even as far gone as she is, Jade is still shocked and horrified when [[EnigmaticMinion Blankman]] kills the OldMaster guarding the third tablet in cold blood.
* ''FanFic/QueenOfShadows'': Even the other Oni Generals are disgusted by Tsume and his tribe. Especially their... [[ImAHumanitarian tastes]].
** It's also stated that the Queen that Jade has replaced despised unnecessary death.
* ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'':
** When it dawns on the Enforcers that [[VillainousCrush Shendu has the hots for Valerie Payne]], they're creeped out. Valmont, on the other hand, subverts this trope: while Shendu's "intimate" moments (including {{forceful kiss}}es) with Valerie while being [[DemonicPossession trapped in the crime lord's body]] disgust him, it's only a matter of his own dignity being compromised rather than any concern towards Valerie.
** Shendu himself refuses to allow harm come to Valerie (though initially only because she's his [[WonderTwinPowers Other]]), and his growing love towards her makes him wanting her to surrender herself to him willingly. While he has committed rape on concubines in the past, he eventually loses all willingness to break her that way.
* ''FanFic/{{Webwork}}'': [[FallenHero Jade]], even after her [[TranshumanTreachery transformation]] into a [[SpiderPeople Jorogumo]] and her later LetsGetDangerous moment, still can't bring herself to harm her family (to Tarakudo's annoyance). On a smaller note, she also refuses to eat people's pets, preferring to do her hunting in the wild.
** Tarakudo looks down on those who do things ForTheEvulz, comparing them to a virus mindlessly destroying everything around it.

* In Charles Gray's fanfic "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2221453/1/Buried Buried]]", someone kidnaps Kim Possible and buries her alive to impress Drakken and hopefully get a job in his organization. Drakken arranges to have the wanna-be henchman killed because he was revolted by what he had done to Kim. In the sequel, "[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2226958/1/The_Chrysanthemum_and_the_Sword The Chrysanthemum and the Sword]]", Kim's other villains (except for Monkey Fist) react similarly to her plight (Motor Ed even sends her a get-well card), while Shego works with Barkin and Ron to thwart Monkey Fist's plan to steal some nukes.

* In "Fanfic/BlindMansBluff", [[spoiler:[[TokenGoodTeammate Chris]] starts his [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turn]]]] when [[spoiler:Brenda [[EvilGloating brags]] about how Jerry was ruthlessly torturing [[MoralityPet Ellis]] to death.]]

* ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures'': Hago, for all his [[CardCarryingVillain self-proclaimed evil]] and eager willingness to kill Simba and Nala, is horrified when [[AxCrazy Scar]] [[spoiler:slaughters his now [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness unnecessary]] hyenas]], and is outright disgusted when he announces his plans to [[spoiler:rape Nala in front of Simba]]. So much so that Hago ends up [[spoiler: [[BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork killing Scar himself]] during the final confrontation]].
** As bad as [[PsychoElectro Shocker]] and [[BloodKnight the Interceptor]] are, even they are horrified by [[spoiler:[[AlienInvasion the Vimela's]] slaughter of the entire Pride Lands]] and [[EnemyMine work with the heroes to defeat them]].

* ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated''
** When the [=SUEs=] are forced to work together in a side story, none of them can stand Hitomi, who enjoys using her MindControl powers to murder innocent people, or Shizune, a [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist Christian]] who wants to commit genocide against anyone who doesn't share her religious views.
** Nao points out that while she enjoys robbing perverts for fun, she believes [[ThouShaltNotKill murder is something else entirely]], hence why she didn't kill any of them. For a similar reason, she rejoins the Himes to deal with Hitomi after she forces a police officer to go on a shooting spree that kills 20 innocent people, and it's implied that the incident [[spoiler:reminds her in a sense of the time her father was killed and her mother was put into a coma]]. She's also reluctant to use lethal force on Shizune unless there's no other option.

* The batarian ambassador and assistant to the Manaban Emperor in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' fanfic The Council Era (who acknowledges his and his associate's own moral ambiguity) views Tyrin Lieph's attempt at suppressing the manaba through cultural/religious genocide as going too far. The Emperor tortures one of Tyrin's allies to find his location. [[spoiler:This results in both the Emperor and the ambassador being victims of HoistByHisOwnPetard when Tyrin remotely detonates an electric surge on his ally's body, killing them both.]]
* In the {{Fanfic/Uplifted}} series, SS Officer Joachim Hoch has no problem with the idea of deporting all of the Jews from Germany, but draws the line at exterminating them. His adoptive father, SS Officer Gerald Langer seems to feel the same way. Hoch is horrified when he realizes what is happening in the second book. Otto Skorzeny is depicted in a similar fashion, though his ultimate loyalties lie in a different direction than Hoch's.
** Hoch later shot one of his own subordinates after said officer killed a British man who was insulting them. He then states that anyone under his command who commits or orders the killing of a civilian will face the same fate.

* {{Fanfic/Monstrous}}: Suel, the emotion eating, human hunting shape-shifter, does not approve of deliberately withholding food from a child that's obviously starving and deliberately attacks those who were first

* ''FanFic/MyBrideIsAMermaidWeddingBells'': Gozaburo and Ren may be {{yakuza}}, but even they find [[OriginalCharacter Tiger Shark Tony]] to be nothing but an ruthless bastard, partially because he tried to usurp control of the Seto Gang from Gozaburo by kidnapping Sun, then a one-year-old baby, and threatening to kill her.

* Even [[http://askponydiscord.tumblr.com/ Ask Pony Discord]] [[http://twixie-answers.tumblr.com/post/31505928598/hopefully-the-next-post-will-be-the-end-of-this thinks that]] [[Webcomic/TheGreatestGift Jupiter and Neptune]] were rotten ponies.
** On his on blog, he's said [[http://askponydiscord.tumblr.com/post/50136184086/discord-im-not-a-complete-monster-i-have he considers turning beings into statues, killing, and rape]] wrong and doesn't do those things.
* ''FanFic/EarthAndSky'' has an example played for laughs that crosses over with PityTheKidnapper. The Changelings kidnap [[spoiler: Diamond Tiara]] in chapter 29, and two chapters later are shown throwing her out of their hive, because even ''they'' find her unpleasant.
* [[http://gavalanche.deviantart.com/gallery/31517325# In Gavalanche's fancomic]] Prince Blueblood was absolutely horrified to learn that Rarity [[MoralEventHorizon tried to drown her 'sister', Sweetie Belle]] just so she could be with him.
* ''FanFic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'':
** The Diamond Dogs are perfectly willing to help [[BigBad Checker Monarch]] ruin the life of a mare they don't even know as long as they're paid. However, even they're horrified when [[spoiler: Checker {{Mind Rape}}s Rainbow Dash with nightmares]] in order to turn her on Trixie. They still work for her after this, but now they're actively ''terrified'' of her.
** Diamond Tiara may be a bully -- and proud of it -- but even she is sickened when it becomes publicly known that Checker has been [[spoiler: ruining the life of her own sister]]. So much so that the sequel, ''Fanfic/TarnishedDiamonds'', is all about her slowly having a HeelRealization due to Checker's comment that she's just like Checker as a kid, meaning that she's at risk of becoming like her as an adult, something that horrifies her.
* ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** In A LooseCanon side story, Canon!Discord was horrified at the atrocities his Pony POV counterpart did in the BadFuture despite having the same personality and sense of humor. So much, that Canon!Discord ''pulled a HeelFaceTurn.'' It had a lot to do with getting an outside view of his actions, causing him to have a HeelRealization.
** As [[TheSociopath bad as she is]], Queen Chrysalis is outright disgusted when the Interviewers suggest she might [[VillainTeamUp ally with Discord]]. This is partly PragmaticVillainy, as she's aware that Discord's chaos would ruin the world, and therefore limit the amount of love for her and her subjects to feed off of.
** Speaking of the Changelings, even the majority of them feel [[EvilGenius Professor Kabuto]] is a psychotic monster for his MadDoctor related activities. According to one of his fellow CoDragons Digger Wasp, half the hive loathes him and the other half [[TheDreaded is scared to death of him.]] It's more or less said that the only reason he's still alive is he's still useful [[spoiler:and has made himself far too dangerous to be easily killed.]]
** Even before his HeelFaceTurn, Prince Blueblood is not a racist, and he's completely disgusted by tabloid reporters who try to paint Princess Celestia as a molester. When one tries to get him to help get dirt on her, he puts him in the hospital.
** Hydia's coven were a family of evil witches who considered being evil a virtue, but they had one line even they wouldn't cross. Killing one's own {{Familiar}} was considered such a taboo, Porcina's master, the Glass Witch, was left to her fate by the rest of the family when Porcina turned her to glass in self defense.
* ''FanFic/MyLittleMagesTheNightmaresReturn'' plays this for laughs. The Diamond Dogs are fierce predators who try to kill Twilight and her friends for Nightmare Moon with no remorse... however, when they find out that Iron Will has chopped off [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Stvenmgynt]]'s mustache, they are [[YouMonster horrified]].
* [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8312691/1/The-Mysterious-Mare-Do-Well-Alternate-Ending Gilda]] may be a {{Jerkass}} but even she thinks [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E8TheMysteriousMareDoWell the Mysterious Mare Do Well stunt]] was harsh.
* In the ''Fanfic/{{Xenophilia}}''-verse, Honeybee, like her sisters, is first introduced as an intolerant bitch who is disgusted by Rainbow Dash, Twilight and Lyra's relationship with Lero, a human. But while she finds [[InterspeciesRomance interspecies mating]] perverted, she reveals that she doesn't dislike Lero himself and she refuses to continue harassing them after he saves her from drowning in "[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/62265/5/xenophilia-side-stories/fish-out-of-water-by-anonauthor Fish Out of Water]]."
* Chrysalis is just as evil in FanFic/TheNuptialverse as in canon, but even she is terrified of her [[TheManBehindTheMan master]] [[TheDreaded Discord]] and what he'll do to her now that [[spoiler: she's effectively [[TheStarscream betrayed]] him]].
** Near the end of ''Families'', [[BigBad Olive Branch]] admits that he was planning on [[spoiler: reporting Speedy Delivery's [[AbusiveParents abuse of Scootaloo]]]] as soon as the latter was [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer needed]]. The author points out that this doesn't make Olive Branch a good pony; he just [[PetTheDog has a shred of decency]].
** When Trixie is putting a VillainTeamUp together in ''Direction'', Lightning Dust is shown to be rather disturbed by the depths of Trixie's [[ArtifactOfDoom Alicorn Amulet-induced]] insanity.
* In ''Return to the Swarm'', turning ponies into "synthetic changelings" is considered vile by ''changeling'' standards, an expressly forbidden. Also, by the end of the fic, the standard routine of capturing ponies and stealing their identities is outlawed [[spoiler:after Crysalis ends up the victim of the same thing]]. (Fortunately the protagonists have discovered a much more acceptable way of love-feeding: friendship.)
* ''[[Fanfic/AFutureOfFriendshipAHistoryOfHate A Future of Friendship, A History of Hate]]'': [[spoiler: [[BitchInSheepsClothing Regal Rule]]]]/[[EvilPrince Megalos Tyrant]] is a narcissistic ControlFreak who views Rarity as little more than a prize to be won, but he appreciates a hard work ethic and earning your keep; therefore, even ''he'' finds the self-important [[PrinceCharmless Prince Blueblood]] to be a pompous jackass.
* ''FanFic/ThePowersOfHarmony'': [[WickedWitch Zemblani]] was willing to [[spoiler: [[PoweredByAForsakenChild kill a foal]]]] for her plans, but even she found Blair's breaking of the Lifeforce taboo [[YouMonster abhorrent]].
* ''FanFic/UnderTheNorthernLights'': Wiglek the Wicked did many things to earn that moniker, among the least of them necromancy. However, he always tried to do right by his family in true reindeer fashion, and doesn't hesitate to rub Luna's muzzle in the fact that she is a "kin-betrayer and kin-slayer".
* In ''Blue'', when a group of nobles come to petition Celestia to have Luna banished due to her color (blue-colored ponies being believed to have a predisposition to crime and madness), Blueblood appears to be leading them. As it turns out, he's only there to clarify right at the start that he has no part in the travesty of justice, and has done all he could to change their minds.
* ''Fanfic/TheRiseOfDarthVulcan'': The eponymous [[VillainProtagonist protagonist]] is a {{Jerkass}} and a thief, but he is horrified by slavery and racism. He threatens to feed some Diamond Dogs that tried to enslave some ponies for him to a hydra he keeps locked up in a pit in his lair.
** He gets to share a moment of this later on with [[TheDragon Artful Dodger]] and [[spoiler: Chrysalis]] -- when they find out about [[TraumaCongaLine everything]] that the Remedial Class pegasi were put through by the corrupt and prejudiced officials of Cirrus-Hilltop, all three are totally disgusted, and immediately set out to completely ''obliterate'' both towns (though making sure the populace was evacuated first). Dodger takes the time to also single out the abusive officer most to blame for what they went through and [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat him within an inch of his life]], while Vulcan makes sure the Princesses are made aware of ''why'' he did all this, ensuring that they press criminal charges against the town officials.
** During the above, it becomes necessary to temporarily abduct all the towns' foals (long story). [[spoiler: Chrysalis']] motherly instincts are set off by this, but Vulcan is able to calm her down when he assures her that he has no intention of harming them.
* ''FanFic/BadFutureCrusaders'':
** Silver Spoon doesn't see a problem with killing mares or stallions, but killing foals is [[BerserkButton going too far]] according to her and ticks her off enough to want to kill whomever does it.
** Rumble, TheDreaded though he is, refuses to kill enemies if they surrender first, even willing to defy [[BigBad Twilight herself]] on the matter.
** Lightning Dust, of all ponies, is reluctant to fight Scootaloo after she notices Scootaloo's crippled wing.
-->'''Lightning Dust''': Look at that ragged wing of yours; it just wouldn’t feel right beating a cripple to death.
* In ''Fanfic/TheWitchOfTheEverfree'', even at the peak of her rage against Celestia, Sunset makes a note to minimize casualties among [[JustFollowingOrders Celestia's guards]] when she comes back for revenge.
** She's also shocked by the extremes of Twilight's imagination regarding how bad she used to be.
-->'''Sunset:''' I told you I was a bad pony who did bad things, remember? I meant it.
-->'''Twilight:''' What was it? Necromancy? Blood Magic? Chaos Magic? ''Double'' Chaos Magic? ''Necro-romantic spells''?
-->'''Sunset:''' Wow. Your imagination went right to some ''really'' dark places when I said I was a bad pony. I’m not a '''monster''', Twilight. I was just [[{{Jerkass}} a jerk]].

* In the one-shot ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5571816/18/Win-Some-Lose-Some Hell And Back]]'', Kyuubi is horrified to learn that when the first Uchiha [[DealWithTheDevil damned himself and all his descendents to Hell in exchange for power]], he still willingly had a family and never informed them.
%%* Within the [[UnfortunateImplications warped]] and [[DoubleStandard inconsistent]] moral code outlined in ''Naruto Veangance Revelaitons'', Naruto's reluctance to have sex with Sakura out of a desire to not hurt her boyfriend Ronan can be seen as this, even if he ultimately gives in. Also there's [[VillainProtagonist Ronan]], who is [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero disgusted]] by [[GuyOnGuyIsHot men]] having sex with each other is outraged to learn that one of the Council's plans is to kill all gay people, declaring that in spite of not liking gay men, he would never kill them. Proof that he's tolerant, as befits this trope.
* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6871105/1/Reactions Reactions]]'' uses this trope liberally. Even [[MadScientist Orochimaru]], [[BloodKnight Zabuza]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist Danzo]], and [[BigBad Madara]] think [[HoYay Kakashi/Naruto]] is sick. Reasoning varies from the fact Kakashi is a grown man and Naruto is a child, to worry about the psychological trauma to the resident [[SealedInAPersonShapedCan jinchuuriki]], to believing it a violation of the trust between teacher and student.
* FanFic/AGrowingAffection has a few examples
** The Fox Demon says she doesn't harm the weak or helpless (at least of her own free will) and that there are a lot of Humans (Madara) worse than her.
** The BigBad Gouki has a lot of standards. He keeps his word unflinchingly, and refused to indulge in YouHaveFailedMe.
* [[KleptomaniacHero Naruto]] in ''[[http://naruto.adult-fanfiction.org/story.php?no=600105466&chapter=3 Demon's Dirty Dreams]]'' will steal pretty much anything that isn't nailed down from the various merchants and clans in town, including things that are too unique or high quality to sell. However, he doesn't steal from the dead or anything the living use to remember the dead, which is why when he discovers a wedding ring belonging to Iruka's dead mother in a merchant's safe, Naruto makes sure it's returned to Iruka.
* ''Escape From The Hokage's Hat'': While the villagers of Konoha consider it [[MoralMyopia okay to emotionally and psychologically torture Naruto for being the Kyuubi's]] [[SealedInAPersonShapedCan human shaped can]] many are really repulsed at the fact some were willing to [[MoralEventHorizon go all the way]] and place unnecessary and cruel PowerLimiter seals on him. Ino even notes that for all the hate he gets, no villager ever (even in private) called Naruto a traitor, which is apparently the worst insult one can say in Konoha.
* ''FanFic/WhiteRain'': Gehard Berculo is an [[DomesticAbuser abusive pig]] towards Lucia, and actually hit her kids, Itachi and Rina, in the first chapter. Nonetheless, when he discovers that the Higher Houses he's working with intend to murder Itachi and Rina to steal their inheritance, Gehard is horrified, with the narration even stating that he doesn't want to kill kids, not even Itachi, who was TheUnfavorite to him.
* While he is a SociopathicHero, Naruto in the ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9920512/1/Reaching-for-a-Dream Reaching for a Dream series]]'' can't stand rapists and despises anything that interferes with love. While the former is [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil common]], the latter makes sense in hindsight given that Naruto sacrificed parts of his humanity (and eventually his mortal existence) for love. He also abhors slavery due to his belief in the right to choose. He may deliberately skew things so that the choice he wants people to make is the most attractive, but he'll still let them choose and generally respect their choices.
* A few examples in the HighSchoolAU fic ''Fanfic/KitsuneNoKenFistOfTheFox'':
** [[AdaptationalVillainy Gaara]] comes to [[BadassPreacher Han's]] church to murder him, but is at least willing to grant Han's request that they take the fight outside so as not to perpetrate violence inside the church itself.
** Suigetsu is a major JerkAss who looks for any opportunity to make a quick buck, has stolen from people in the past, and used to be a gang member, but he's not one for beating on defenseless people or doing drugs. He and his friend Jugo actually quit their former gang due to the latter point.
** Played for laughs with gang leader Kimimaro, who's shown himself willing to break into people's houses, [[WouldHitAGirl wound women]] and [[WouldHurtAChild try to murder kids]]--but who balks at the idea of using the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series as a torture method. Although it helps that Naruto actually used said method of torture on ''him''.
** LOVE member Yura hosts underground bare-knuckle matches, illegal gambling, and WouldHitAGirl, but he refuses to deal in stolen art, as he claims there's no value in holding art pieces that were acquired dishonestly.
** The LOVE organization itself has a [[PragmaticVillainy pragmatic]] policy forbidding its members to engage in sexual crimes, including rape, as the group employs female members and it wouldn't be able to do so if it sanctioned such crimes. [[spoiler:Matsuri sends Yagura to kill his own henchman Aoi because of this, after Aoi's arrested for almost raping Ino]].

* The Black Cat Pirates in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11920014/5/Logia-Luffy-Rise-of-the-Dark-Emperor Logia Luffy: Rise of the Dark Emperor]]'' have no problem with looting a village. But several are uncomfortable with killing it's inhabitants and all of them balk at killing women and children, though for some it's because doing so would see them hanged by the Marines.

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/384344/1/Dragon_Master Dragon Master]]'' has Giovanni of Team Rocket breaking his alliance with [[spoiler: Claire]] as the latter is willingly endangering his agents just for power and pride. In another scene, Laine confronts Ember about [[spoiler: the circumstances of her father's death]], and he reassures her that it would have to have been an accident because even Team Rocket has standards. Also [[spoiler: Team Rocket is treated as a necessary evil by the Pokemon League because they keep their evil to a pragmatic level, and actively hunt or recruit other criminals to prevent competition, making crime control easier overall in order to further their own agenda.]]

* Baphomet of ''Fanfic/WarriorsOfTheWorldSoldiersOfFortune'' states that he isn't in cahoots with the BigBad because the idea of wiping out an entire race for whatever reason is both completely illogical and far too ruthless even for a demon as old and hated as he is.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10092339/1/Ranma-Saotome-Chi-Master Ranma Saotome, Chi Master]]'', it's mentioned that Happosai took offense with Qiáng Wang's various operations in Beijing. The fact that even ''Happosai'' thought his activities were loathsome just underscores how truly vile the Triad leader really is.

* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness'':
** According to Dark Kuyumaya, even the denizens of Hell themselves [[WouldntHurtAChild consider harming children despicable]]. As part of his DarkAndTroubledPast, Dark, having been summoned to help an EvilSorcerer subjugate the Snow Woman Village, came across a little girl named Arial Kuyumaya and, after explaining why he was doing what he was doing, intended to let her go. Unfortunately, his master came along at that precise moment and directly ordered him to kill Arial; after reluctantly and [[ApologeticAttacker apologetically]] doing so, Dark promptly [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turned on his master]] and killed him in a rage.
** In Act VI chapter 42, while Kurumu admits that the myth that succubi can drain the life force out of men during sex is true, nowadays a succubus would have to "be a bitch" to do so; her mother never killed any of her various flings, and she never planned to either. As Kurumu puts it, "we may be demons who prey on men, but we're classier than doing something as dark as that."

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5457184/1/War-Games War Games]]'' features Rubeus, after resurrecting the Dark Kingdom, attempting to kill Chibiusa for foiling his plans in the prelude to the story. However, the resurrected Beryl [[WouldntHurtAChild does not approve of harming children]] and scolds Rubeus for trying to during his first act for the Dark Kingdom. This actually leads Beryl to do a HeelFaceTurn once she realizes that Queen Metaria has given Rubeus free reign, and [[spoiler: she regains her memory of an elementary school being blown up by terrorists during her time as queen of what was once the North Pole Kingdom, becoming good friends with the Sailors and eventually earning their trust]]

[[AC:''{{Franchise/Sonic the Hedgehog}}'']]
* In Episode 67 of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'', Eggman and his crew end up stumbling upon Beelzebub's lair, where they decide to eavesdrop in order to find the Chaos Emeralds. Then they hear the screams from Beelzebub [[ColdBloodedTorture torturing]] Cosmo, and then they find [[spoiler: Chris unconscious and bleeding from his anus after being nearly raped to death by Beelzebub]]. Eggman is so shocked and horrified - and utterly [[UnstoppableRage furious]] - that he flat out tells Sonic and his friends to leave with the Chaos Emerald ''so they don't have to watch him beat the Demon to a bloody pulp''. [[spoiler: RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil]], indeed.
** This trope is also [[spoiler: the reason Tsali's mercenaries betrayed him]]; they eventually became [[VillainousBreakdown exhausted and distraught]] from the endless killing of innocent people.
** Interestingly, ''Tsali'' of all people has standards too - despite his penchant for mass murder, he's uncomfortable with slavery and [[PetTheDog immediately freed the slaves Maledict gave him as a gift when he became a Demon Lord]].
* In ''PrisonIslandBreak,'' Silver the Hedgehog is gang-raped by Scourge and a collection of other convicts. Shadow, who up until now has shown nothing but contempt for Silver, and is a violent rapist himself, is horrified and helps Silver get back to, explaining that rape because the chick is 'asking for it' is one thing, but that it should be a 'personal' thing. He adds that Scourge [[WouldntHurtAChild pretends his victims are young children]], which is even more disgusting.

* In ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]'', the supervillain [[AnIcePerson Blizzard]] turns out to be much more of a petty thug than a sadist or murderer, unlike most of Spider-Woman's enemies. Although Spider-Woman defeats him when he tries to rob an armored car, he doesn't hold a grudge against her and later helps her protect many of New York's civilians when the city is invaded by an army of BrainwashedAndCrazy supervillains. He also disdains the rest of Spider-Woman's RoguesGallery for their sadism and cruelty, providing helpful advice to [[BrokenBird Tarot]] when he finds that she doesn't care about revenge on Spider-Woman either and isn't a monster either. Also, although [[NewYorkCityCops NYPD]] Detective Jason Phillip Macendale is a very DirtyCop, freely accepting bribes from the Kingpin's syndicate, when Kitty Pryde is threatened by anti-mutant racists, he does his job as a police officer and investigates the crime wholeheartedly. Detective Macendale is royally pissed off by the way that the anti-mutant activists justify their actions with motherhood-and-apple-pie statements like saying that they're protecting the community or their families, since in his mind they're no better than him and [[AtLeastIAdmitIt at least he admits that he's a corrupt son of a bitch.]]

* In ''Hosts'', Daniel Jackson and Samantha Carter are captured by the Goa'uld Queen Nanna-Sin, who had previously been uninvolved in the war between the Tau'ri and the System Lords. When one of her Jaffa, a man who had previously been a subject of Apophis, brutally beats Samantha Carter to within an inch of her life and rapes her in revenge for his former "god", Nanna-Sin not only has her people nurse Carter back to health, she orders the rapist held until Carter is well enough to "enjoy" the man's punishment, which is [[{{Gorn}} described in specific and horrific detail]]. Carter is thereafter treated more like a guest to be protected than a prisoner of war, and when she's returned to Earth in a prisoner exchange, Nanna-Sin even pays reparations for the assault.
-->'''Nanna-Sin:''' I rule my planet with an iron fist, but around it I wear a silk glove. And will not tolerate those who violate the helpless.

* Played with in a ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' FanFiction in which [[spoiler:The Mind Wipe doesn't take effect for more than two days.]] Revan in disgust says that he has never raped, or condoned rape. Then he thinks, is violating a person's mind, soul, and spirit really any different? However due to that thought he [[spoiler:follows the official end and converts back to the light side, of course while still being as close to being a AntiHero as he can while being light.]]

* ''FanFic/JewelOfDarkness'': When Slade first comes across the young Raven, she's about to be raped by a homeless drunk, and Slade decides to kill him, as [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil even he finds that disgusting]]. Not that it matters, since Raven's powers instinctively protect her and kill the man, but it's the thought that counts.

* Yuuka Kazami in ''FanFic/ImperfectMetamorphosis'' has a surprisingly rigid set of standards for [[spoiler:an EldritchAbomination]]; the problem is that they make no sense to anyone except her. She views courtesy and decorum as of the utmost importance (to the point that she killed the previous owners of her Inn room because they decided to scream in terror instead of greeting her politely), anyone killing plants puts her swiftly into ThisIsUnforgivable territory, and while she is glad to protect children from harm she apparently doesn't consider raping them to be harmful.
* In [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/pools/1911 Touhou - Rinnosuke Manga]], Yuuka has another moment. You know that when the character that has the FanNickname of "Ultimate Sadistic Creature" is [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/861759?tags=hidefu_kitayan+kazami_yuuka displaying]] [[https://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/969386?tags=hidefu_kitayan+kazami_yuuka concern]] at Rinnosuke's treatment of [[TheChewToy Aya]] (PlayedForLaughs as it may be), you know things are pretty messed up.

* Subverted in ''Fanfic/WarbandOfTheForsakenSons''. In chapter 10, it seems like [[EvilutionaryBiologist Jikaerus]] is unnerved by the fate of [[ReforgedIntoAMinion Governor Tarsis]]. But then he realizes that what he has done is no different, and that as traitors, they have all already broken their most sacred oath - what is one more ethic breach after that ?

* In ''Return to Prince Manor'' Maeve, Queen of the Winter Court was upset with one of her sons because:
-->I never kidnapped a Seelie royal daughter and subjugated her with a collar, nor did I presume to steal away two young scions of the Prince line and attempt to convert them to darkness. ''I'' played my games with mere mortal riffraff, ''never'' my own kind . . . unless they were my subjects and due chastisement.
* In some WesternAnimation/GrojBand fanfics, AlphaBitch Trina Riffin might be a cruel girl, but she refuses to interfere with her younger brother's love life.
