* Rick Taylor, protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Splatterhouse}}'', was just a HollywoodNerd with a good relationship with his girlfriend, Jennifer. Unexpectedly, in each game something comes to take her from him, leaving Rick to don the sentient [[ArtifactOfDoom Terror Mask]] to save her and leave everywhere in his wake splattered with blood. In the remake, the Terror Mask invokes this trope by telling him that [[BloodKnight he loves killing the demons as much as it does]]. While Rick at first denies this and is disgusted with the Mask's brutality, later on he doesn't deny it in the slightest. And judging by his [[FinishingMove Finishing Moves]], he is not a GentleGiant you would ever want to mess with.

* The Salt Hogs from ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'' are a race of salt-of-the-earth, porcine aliens with a hardy Protestant work ethic. As well as working your recycling plants and factories, they also all come armed. They get along with most other races very well ([[SlobsVersusSnobs except for those nasty, snobby]] [[FatBastard Polvakian Gem Slugs]]) and while they don't fight as well as [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Kasvagorians]], they do happen to be a ''[[ZergRush lot]]'' [[ZergRush cheaper to hire]] ''[[ZergRush en masse]]''. Their cultural version of Christmas apparently involves handing out a random selection of various non-lethal toxins to their kids alongside the more traditional gifts, to teach them that life isn't fair and they need to take the rough with the nice.

* SuperSmashBrothersBrawl showed that should the normally chivalrous but calm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_m5AsTPaPw&NR=1 Link]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf5qQARxGm8&feature=related Mario]] mistake you for severely harming their beloved Zelda/Peach, you will either get a sword or fist plowed into your skull. They're Nintendo's main examples of GoodIsNotSoft for a VERY good reason.

** In ''Civilization V'', Gandhi is the easiest leader to befriend. However, if you get on his bad side (be a warmonger, attack him personally), he '''''will''''' nuke your civilization into so much radioactive dust. Someone poked around the data for the game, and found a 1-10 scale on how likely a leader is to use nukes. The most warlike leaders (Montezuma and Alexander the Great) ranked about 8. Gandhi has a special rating of ''12''.

Gandhi has a special rating of ''12''.''12''[[note]]scores above 10 get rounded down to 10 when the game starts, but there is a 2-step random factor for every score first to increase gameplay variation. Gandhi having 12 therefore means that while Montezuma or Alexander ''can'' be as nuke-happy as Gandhi, they can also be as low as 6, while AI Gandhi ''always'' is at 10[[/note]].

* {{Neptunia}}: Self-proclaimed heroine of justice Nisa is usually very peppy, but [[ACupAngst making reference to her breast size]] [[BerserkButton turns all that around]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poe4PSi_IUY like so]]. [[HyperdimensionNeptuniaMk2 You wouldn't want to get on Mina Nishizawa's nerves either; take it from Rom and Ram]].

** Preston Garvey is a total OfficerAndAGentleman and the personification of the Minutemen's ideals, but he's also a FriendlySniper who'll happily vaporise hostiles with his laser musket. To say nothing of the Minutemen themselves, as they're just ordinary wastelanders who have taken up arms to defend their settlements from various threats in the wastelands but will use heavy firepower to shell Raider and Super Mutant compounds into dust. If they're the faction the player leads to victory against [[BigBad the Institute]], ''everyone'' is shocked that they actually pulled it off: even the ''[[BadassArmy Brotherhood of Steel]]'' are left nervous that the Minutemen had the firepower and balls to pull it off, and the Desdemona, the leader of the Railroad, will shoot you a smile and admit you really ''are'' a general.

* Likewise, ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has a few examples, mostly on your side. ** Curie is an unflinchingly polite and adorable medical robot with an accent and personality based on that of a woman Curie's creator dated at a university in Paris. However, as she'll tell you herself, "my offensive capabilities are ''quite'' formidable". ** Dogmeat looks like an adorable wasteland mutt most of the time, but it's easy to forget he's still a very big dog with a lot of teeth, and will graphically rip people's throats out of sheer loyalty to you. ** Preston Garvey is a total OfficerAndAGentleman and the personification of the Minutemen's ideals, but he's also a FriendlySniper who'll happily vaporise hostiles with his laser musket.

** Alistair is a goofy, friendly, optimistic guy who spends much of the game grieving for his dead friends and gets along with pretty much everyone but Morrigan. But if you want [[spoiler:Loghain]] in your party in the endgame, ''do not'' appoint him the champion for the final duel at the Landsmeet, because this goofy, friendly, optimistic guy will casually decapitate his opponent in a spray of blood.

** Really, a the mercs (or at least most of them) fit this trope. They can be friendly, generous and even kind off-duty, especially around [[WouldntHurtAChild children]] and their respective [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes loved ones]], but in the field they are mentally unbalanced, bloodthirsty lunatics. Taken to the logical extreme with [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness the Pyro]].
