I got animation action I want to get rid of, how to do it?

Tried to do simple thing as clicking "X" in action editor but it doesn't work.

enter image description here

I tried do it through Outliner window, I found an action, right-click on it, "Delete" and whole rig got deleted.

enter image description here

I am obviously not following Blender UX mindset, I got like couple of dozens cloned actions already, littering whole scene (was experimenting...) I can't sleep knowing they are sitting there.

You can delete them the way you're trying to, maybe it moves your object as it is not transformed by the action anymore:

You can also go in the Outliner, choose Display Mode > Blender File and under Actions, delete the actions you want with a left click > Delete:

Also, if you press Shift and the X button on the right of the action name in the Dope Sheet, it will be marked as 0 (no user), it won't be saved when you'll close your file and in the Outliner > Display Mode > Orphan Data it will be displayed as orphan and you can delete it immediately if you want:
