Is Kazran Sardic from Doctor Who a deconstruction? In the beginning, his inability to strike at children makes him angrier and meaner than if he'd just done it. At least until the Doctor starts to get through to him that accepting it is the best revenge he could have on the person who made him into a nasty old man in the first place.

Would The Borne Identity be appropriate for inclusion here? Borne, a trained government assassin, refrains from killing African warlord Wombosi, assumedly because he doesn't want to traumatize his children, who are present in the room.

Or do I have the jist of this trope wrong?
