** On the other hand, Frieza's genocide of the Saiyan race definitely fits the bill. While it was terrible of Frieza to do so after all the loyal work they did under him and his father, it's hard to feel sorry for them considering they were genocidal {{Space Pirate}}s long before King Cold conquered them and basically served as [[PsychoForHire Psychos for Hire]] that took sadistic pleasure in what they did. [[AllLovingHero Goku]] himself tells Frieza point-blank that the Saiyans [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch paid for their crimes]], agreeing with [[GodIsGood King Kai]] that they [[AssholeVictim deserved what they got]].

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Sugou Nobuyuki/Oberon, the ArcVillain of the Fairy Dance arc, commits a lot of horrible deeds on top of being a {{Jerkass}} SmugSnake, performing such acts as conducting inhumane MindControl experiments on 300 SAO survivors and keeping Asuna hostage to lord over her in a cage, and when Kirito finally finds her, Sugou abuses his GameMaster powers to pin Kirito down and [[AttemptedRape sexually abuse Asuna]] while [[ForcedToWatch making him watch]]. Once saved and given admin privileges by Akihiko Kayaba's VirtualGhost, Kirito wastes no time in defeating Sugou as painfully and humiliating as possible, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech verbally tearing down his delusions of godhood]] before brutally killing him to the point where Sugou is [[WoundThatWillNotHeal left with permanent injuries in real life]]. On anyone else, it would've been [[ColdBloodedTorture horrifyingly brutal]], but after all of the atrocities Sugou has committed, along with his smug attitude, it's [[LaserGuidedKarma incredibly cathartic]] to watch Kirito put him in his place.

* ''Anime/CrossAnge'' featured humans being a community that used mana and revels in prejudice and racism against Norma, women with birth defect that made them unable to use Mana. They couldn't be reasoned out of it and turn against any form of decency just to make Norma life miserable. Whenever things go bad to them, the reactions would be more or less "Serves you right"... even from less moral characters:
** The protagonist, Ange, has became a cynic after being outed as a Norma and being made to suffer by them. When they suddenly demand help from her because they couldn't use the Mana anymore and their civilization collapsing, Ange bluntly stated she doesn't give a fuck about these selfish pigs, and shot one of them in the head to scare them. At the end of the series, their civilization really collapsed and the previously spoiled Mana community had to resort to barbaric means to survive... and Ange still doesn't give a fuck.
** Their sudden inability to use Mana were caused by Embryo, the BigBad, who saw them having grown complacent with all the luxuries and peace they had, given to him by designing that the Norma should be the scapegoat, and his original plan was to restart the world to make things right. Mind you, this is a BigBad who eventually succumbs into a severe MotiveDecay and became more known as a creepy stalker that wouldn't mind forcing himself into his woman of choice. He still came off as 'properly punishing' when it comes to this community.


* In the manga version of ''Manga/AkameGaKill'', [[spoiler: Everyone in the Imperial Capital gets to do this to Prime Minister Honest, the corrupt ruler of the Empire. They have him tied down and take turns ripping him apart one piece at a time, making Honest feel the pain of all the people he's made suffer under his reign.]] In the anime version, [[spoiler: Leone brutally beats Honest to death herself, slowly and painfully.]]
** [[spoiler: Akame does this to Izou of Wild Hunt as he is dying from a wound she inflicted on him. Said katana wielder is a mass murderer was responsible for killing a fellow Night Raid member. So when Izou asks Akame to take his katana, she responds by cutting his chest open while he's down, brutally refusing his final request. It's very cathartic.]]

* In the ''VisualNovel/SchoolDays'' anime, Sekai Saionji earned the rare distinction of being on both ends of this trope in a single episode. First, [[spoiler:she kills the JerkAss who has been cheating on her like crazy and recently refused to stay with her despite her thinking she's pregnant with his baby ''and'' having a reasonably good reason to think that way]]. And later, [[spoiler:she gets killed and cut up by the girl whom she stole said guy from, by kissing him and becoming his "other woman" after Sekai herself hooked them up, which kicked off said girl's BreakTheCutie deal]].

** Angel, a member of the villainous Oracion Seis, being revealed as the one who killed [[BitchInSheepsClothing Karen]], a cruel woman who'd treated her Celestial Spirits horribly, thereby forcing Leo to endure great pain by spending three months to prevent Karen from taking out her anger on Aries (whom Karen had assumed had reported her to Bob). That said, Angel was by all accounts [[EvilVersusEvil nearly as bad]] (in the sense she just had complete LackOfEmpathy for her Spirits rather than brutalizing them) to Aries after taking her key.

Arguably, what he did to Danzo, Deidara, and Karin might count as well, considering the various levels of evil of each of those characters. Karin is more sympathetic, until you remember that she was helping Orochimaru with his experiments and personally making sure that none of his unwilling test subjects could escape.

[[YouHaveFailedMe cut loose]] his former allies. However, so far he has done this to: Bellamy (a {{Jerkass}} bully), Disco (a slave trader), and [[spoiler:Gecko Moria]]. None of whom were the least bit sympathetic and pretty much deserved what they got. Same goes for [[spoiler:Barrels]], who had become a truly vile pirate who was just as horrible to his own son as he was to his victims, and [[spoiler:X Drake]] tellingly bore absolutely no grudge against Doflamingo for killing his father.

Not only is Youji [[MissionControl Futaba]]'s abusive uncle (who refused to provide for her basic needs while she was staying with him, forcing Sojiro to pay him off to rescue her), but he's only in that situation because he wasted all the money he extorted from Sojiro on poorly thought out business ventures, which is why he tries to shake Sojiro down again later that episode. As such, it's hard to feel sorry for Youji or to blame Ren for not helping him.

* Masaru and [=ShineGreymon=] from ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' finish off [[BigBad Kurata]] as he's pleading for his life. Normally, trying to kill someone who is begging you for mercy is a sign you're either a villain or at best, an AntiHero. However, when that someone is the biggest bastard in the history of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', circumstances are different -- all his friends cheered him on and told him to kick Kurata's ass.
** Makuramon of ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' was a giant JerkAss, a DirtyCoward, and a creep who stalked a bunch of 10-year-olds, attacked Jeri, kidnapped Calumon, abandoned Majiramon--who was his ally-- to die, ''tried to kill Suzie'', attacked Antylamon -- who was ''also'' an ally -- [[EvenEvilHasStandards when she tried to stop him]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and]] [[TooDumbToLive was stupid enough to taunt Beelzemon for not killing the Tamers yet]]. Needless to say, watching Beelzemon crush his head with one hand was ''extremely'' satisfying. [[SarcasmMode And totally appropriate]] [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids for kids]].
