* [[AvertedTrope Averting]] this trope for "Angel of Death" is more than likely what got people into thinking Music/{{Slayer}} were Nazi sympathizers. According to guitarist Jeff Hanneman, "…there's nothing I put in the lyrics that says necessarily [Josef Mengele] was a bad man, because to me--well, [[KickTheDog isn't]] [[MoralEventHorizon that obvious]]? I shouldn't have to tell you that."

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'', you're constantly reminded how horrid Kefka's acts are, and how insane he is, nearly every time his name comes up. If anything, they UNDERPLAY how messed up Kefka's head is.

* In the videogame adaptation of ''VideoGame/TheWarriors'' (in which the characters are ''much'' more AffablyEvil than their cinematic counterparts), there are quite a few levels where you're pretty much required to mug innocent New Yorkers; the very first level even teaches you precisely how to do this. The male victims usually just run off to call the police (or at least try to, since you can order your fellow gang members to "wreck" any squealers), but the female victims put up more of a fight, often accusing you of trying to rape them [[EvenEvilHasStandards (which, to their credit, the Warriors never actually do)]], sometimes [[EyeScream macing you in the face]], and (if the mugging is successful) shouting "Stealing is ''wrong'', boy!" after you as you run off.

* Both justified and not in "Who Shot Mr. Burns, Part I", a summer cliffhanger on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (the second part not being aired until a few months later) that gave [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Charles Montgomery Burns]] as many KickTheDog moments as possible (in one case quite literally) to create a situation in which [[WhoMurderedTheAsshole practically everyone in Springfield would have a motive for shooting him]]. Burns has become obsessed with forcing the people of Springfield to rely only on nuclear power from his power plant, and when oil is discovered in the town, Burns hijacks the oil fields to preempt their exploitation by the townspeople. Then, to prevent everyone from using solar power--the one energy source that Burns cannot monopolize--Burns deploys an invention of his that effectively blocks out the sun, plunging Springfield into eternal night. Waylon Smithers, Burns's assistant, has reluctantly gone along until now, primarily out of respect and genuine admiration for Burns, but now tells his boss that his plan is "unconscionably fiendish." Burns promptly fires Smithers for insubordination, reducing the servant to a drunken wreck. He then goes to City Hall just to taunt the townspeople, many of whom are wielding guns at the meeting and some of whom have already threatened to kill him. As Burns [[TemptingFate crows that no one in Springfield has the courage to shoot him in the open]], the citizens stand up one by one and together deliver a drawn-out TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, saying that Burns deserves to die and should go to Hell and so forth. (Ironically, after all this, the one who eventually shoots Burns in a darkened alley does so ([[AlternateCharacterInterpretation possibly]]) by accident: it's [[spoiler: Maggie Simpson]].)
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfSonicTheHedgehog'', Sonic says "[[CluelessAesop If someone tries to touch you in a place or in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable]], [[MemeticMutation that's no good!]]" Although, this ''was'' to [[TooSmartForStrangers educate children]]. Children are not expected to know such things.
* ''WesternAnimation/SheRaPrincessOfPower'' had a very similar PSA at the end of one episode that said almost the same thing. Though very narmy, it actually prompted a few kids to confess to having been molested, so it did its job.
