History[ edit ] Precursors of transhumanism[ edit ] According to Nick Bostromtranscendentalist impulses have been expressed at least as far back as the quest for immortality in the Epic of Gilgameshas well as in historical quests for the Fountain of Youththe Elixir of Lifeand other efforts to stave off aging and death. The late 19th to early 20th century movement known as Russian cosmism also incorporated some ideas which later developed into the core of the transhumanist movement.
Haruto calls him out on it by saying that violence is always the answer with him. In the episode where this is really shown when L-Elf shoots Marie in the head for trying to get the secret of the Valvraves from Haruto and distracting him from a battle he was late for, it's also justified, as we see his backstory being trained as a Child Soldier from a very young age.
He mentions they were taught to be pragmatically cold and violent. He doesn't even bother trying to find out what the man's motive is.
Ichigo's suggestion is especially shocking, because he'd previously hesitated to kill much less human creatures. To be fair to him, what Tsukishima has done to him was Part of the backstory is that the Quincy were threatening the balance between life and afterlife because their actions destroyed the souls of Hollows, instead of purifying them like Shinigami do.
The Shinigami explained this to them, but the Quincy, having lost so many friends and family to Hollows, felt that Hollows deserved to have their souls destroyed.
Since they failed to convince the Quincy to stop, the Shinigami immediately proceeded to Plan B: Ultimately they let one Quincy live, who had agreed to their terms at the start. Too bad for the Shinigami, a bunch of other Quincy managed to escape too.
And they've spent a long time developing powerful new techniques to return the favor. Most of the other Knights, including Lelouch, disagree and outvote them. Thankfully, Lelouch manages to stop her and later has a word with Diethard as Zero after learning he was behind it.
And Rolo really liked this mindset, both when working for Villetta and after defecting to Lelouch. Kira Light Yagamiof Death Note.
Admittedly, it was the only hammer the man hadbut everything from mass murderers to interfering police officers were treated like nails. Especially at the end, when they go through with it without actually trying to think up any better plans. Done on a massive scale in Gravion 's backstory: In a land dispute between two planets, the rulers of one side reject Sandman's plan to use his Super Robot to build a new habitable world or fix their old one out of hand, and go with Hugi's plans to send an army of Robeasts and Mecha-Mooks to exterminate the people of the other planet.
When They Cry 's Tatarigoroshi-hen: Keiichi's plan to kill Satoko's uncle to protect her. Unfortunately, it really just ends up making things worse. This seems to be a recurring theme for the show, as Rena kills Rina and Teppei in Tsumihoroboshi-hen to protect her dad from their scam, Shion kills all the people she thought put Satoshi away and tries to stab Keiichi, and no, she was never at the hospital in Watanagashi-hen and Meakashi-hen, and the overall theme of the show itself, since Takano wants Rika dead by her own hands so she can enact her plan to raze the village, before 'everybody goes crazy'.
When you consider that all of these people have Hinamizawa syndrome, a disease that causes people to go Ax-Crazyit makes more sense. Shion also really wants to kill Teppei in Minagoroshi, but is stopped by Keiichi.
In a sound novel only arc, Shion, Rena, and Keiichi team up to kill Teppei. It doesn't go so well. Future Diary Yuno subscribes to this trope. In her own words, "Everyone who comes between me and Yukki can just die!
Having become a Well-Intentioned Extremisthe justifies a Colony Drop as a way to accelerate humanity's evolution into Newtypes by forcing all of them to leave Earth.
Which was then replicated by Miliardo Peacecraft in Mobile Suit Gundam Wingbut this time his reason for the Colony Drop is "to achieve true peace," or so he claims Miliardo's case is actually a subversionas he never actually intended to destroy all life on Earth.
His goal was to end war by perpetrating a war so horrible that everyone would realize how awful it is. To do that, he needed to present a credible threat of such a scale that Earth would be forced to respond with armed resistance. In One PieceAdmiral Akainu's Establishing Character Moment is to kill a ship full of innocent people because there may be an archaeologist aboard.
Technically correct, as the whole reason he and other Marines were there was to ensure a secret guarded for centuries didn't get out, or it could destabilize the world. Asakura Ryoko of Haruhi Suzumiya is convinced that killing Kyon is the best solution to find out more about Haruhi.
The boss of both her and Yuki is a alien-entity who only wishes to observe passively. The problem is, nothing "interesting" ever happens, so Asakura wants to force change. By killing Kyon, "change" is pretty much guaranteed. But not in the good way.
