Basic Trope: A edited scene that gives the hero justification for killing some one
- Straight: In the first version the hero shoot a bad guy, in the edited version, the bad guy shot first and missed
- Exaggerated: EVERY bad guy shots and misses before the hero can kill him
- Justified: The edit is more consistent with Bob's personality.
- Inverted: In the first version of a show there was a justification of killing a man to prevent miscegenation. As he was already wanted at the time removing this heinous bit made him more Anti-Hero than Villain Protagonist.
- Subverted: ???
- Double Subverted: ???
- Parodied: The justifications given are for "offenses" so minor it amounts to Disproportionate Retribution like "was a bad tipper" or "jaywalked back in 1989".
- Deconstructed: ???
- Reconstructed: ???
- Zig Zagged: The edited version with the villain shooting first is in some re-releases, but left out in others.
- Averted: The hero finds the villain and kills them with no hesitation.
- Enforced: The writers are worried the audience might lose sympathy for the hero for killing a villain that isn't fighting them.
- Lampshaded: ???
- Invoked: ???
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: ???
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: ???
