The "Butcher of J'Gal" was the nickname given to Klingon General Dak'Rah by other Klingons for claiming to have killed his own officers at J'Gal during the Federation-Klingon War. According to Rah, he killed them for the atrocities against civilians they committed.

In reality, this was a lie that Dak'Rah told when he defected to the Federation. His officers were killed by Joseph M'Benga during a black ops mission meant to assassinate Dak'Rah, the perpetrator who gave the order that resulted in the killing of civilians.

M'Benga later called himself the real "Butcher of J'Gal" when he confronted Rah with the truth. (SNW: "Under the Cloak of War")
