Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony'':
** Ray Bulgarin crosses this when he shoots his own sister out of anger and possibly '''killing''' her.
** Rocco sets up Luis to [[spoiler: kill Tony Prince when an Ancelotti boss demands a body of either Luis, Tony or both of them in a shootout]].


** OG Loc crosses it when he ordered CJ to kidnap and kill the manager of Mad Dog, and as if that were not enough, also ordered him to kill all his guards and steal the rhyme book of Mad Dog to be made famous. It is incredible that an apparently comedic character and even ridiculed by their partners has become so vile, especially since later on Mad Dog is DrivenToSuicide

** Tenpenny, Pulaski, and the Ballas in the video "The Introduction", killing CJ's mother so that he came to Los Santos and give him an easy scapegoat for Pendlebury's murder. And the worst is that they murdered him. Tenpenny probably also crossed it in other missions, forcing CJ to kill people who want to discover their corruption, including FBI agents.

** [[TheDon Sonny Forelli]] crossed this before the game's events. In the final mission, it is revealed that he set up the entire incident which landed Tommy in jail, with no explanation for why he did that being given, and after the entire drug deal went into a mess in the beginning, it is implied that Sonny set the deal to go to hell and wanted to have Tommy killed. This shows that he has no problem betraying his close friend and one of his most powerful men in his organization for no reason and shows no remorse for this. And it is likely that Sonny would have killed Tommy if he had given the money he made from his empire's operations.
