  -- Exodus 20:1,13 (in the Westminster Codex)

"Hey, "Thou Shalt Not Kill", remember? What kind of church man are you?"
Vash the Stampede, Trigun
"I know Darth Vader's really got you annoyed, but remember if you kill him then you'll be unemployed."
"I broke my oath. I killed him. Nobody has the right to kill. Not Mxyxptlk... not you... not Superman. Especially not Superman."

Kick-ass: "No way. I'm not going to kill anybody. I'm supposed to be a fucking superhero."

Hit Girl: "Oh, kiss my ass. What is this? The Silver Age?"
"Rubber bullets. Honest."

Bruce Wayne/Batman: "I'm no executioner."

Henri Ducard/Ra's Al Ghul: "Your compassion is a weakness your enemies will not share."

Bruce: "That's why it's so important. It separates us from them."

Superman: "There are at least six different ways I can stop you right now."

Lex Luthor: "But they all involve deadly force, don't they? And you don't do that. [Superman is silent] No. You need me. You wouldn't be much of a hero without a villain, and you do love being a hero, don't you? The cheering children, the swooning women - you love it so much, it's made you my most reliable accomplice!"

Superman: "Accomplice?! What're you--"

Lex Luthor: "You could have crushed me any time you wanted. And it wasn't the law or the will of the people that stopped you - it was your ego. Being a hero was too important to you. You're as much responsible for this as I am! So go ahead, fix it somehow. Put me on trial, lock me up - but I'll beat it. And then we'll start the whole thing all over again."
Justice League, A Better World
"An honorable warrior does not need to kill other cats to win his battles, unless they are outside the warrior code or it is necessary for self-defense."
Code 14 of the Warrior Code, Warrior Cats
"Oh, I'll shoot if I have to. But I'll shoot to wound, not to kill. [If] a man must die, it's up to the law to decide that -- not the person behind the six-shooter."
The Lone Ranger, "Enter the Lone Ranger", The Lone Ranger (1949)
