* The ''Fanfic/AllGuardsmenParty'' uses every dirty trick in the book and arms themselves with potentially-heretical xenotech and illegally-procured weapons - but if it keeps them alive, they'll use it.

** His philosophy does get a bit {{deconstructed}} in a later sidestory: after losing to Ultima while on Two Island, he's upset that the old woman's Dragonite defeated his Charizard without using its full strength. Ultima however points out that she was only gauging Charizard's power, and she held back to avoid injuring him more than necessary, poiting out that, barring a life-or-death situation, holding back isn't necessarily a bad thing.

* ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'': As much as Satan Girl is concerned, biting ankles in order to hamstring your opponent or clawing their eyes out are perfectly acceptable combat techniques.
-->Kara drew on her every erg of reserve power to keep fighting. But, increasingly, she found herself on the defensive. She fought to keep Satan Girl's fingers from her eyes, her jaws from her carotid artery, her knees from her crotch.

* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''/''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' crossover ''Fanfic/TheVampireOfSteel'' the titular heroines work together to fight a Kryptonian vampire. Supergirl is willing to break her "Do not killing rule" and use hidden weapons or transdimensional-banishing devices to deal with him.



[[AC: ''Webcomic/GeneCatlow'']]
* The ''Basalt City Chronicles'' has Tors Beers (who hates fighting) taught to end fights as quickly as possible--biting, clawing, breaking bones, and ''outright killing'' are all acceptable means to win (though it's best to avoid the last).



[[AC:''ComicBook/PowerGirl'']]
* In ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', Power Girl has to fight three Kryptonians used to gang up on their enemy and fight coordinately. Fighting "fairly" doesn't even cross her mind. Heat beams to the groin followed with an uppercut are perfectly good tactics.



[[AC:''Franchise/{{Superman}}'']]
* In ''Fanfic/SupermanAndMan'', ComicBook/LexLuthor doesn't know why his nemesis looks distracted all of sudden during their bout, but he most definitely doesn't mind.
-->"It's not fair!" he snapped.\\
"Of course it isn't," said Luthor, grabbing him by the hair and presenting his palm-blaster to send a Kryptonite blast into his face. "And that's the way I like it."
* ''Fanfic/SupermanOf2499TheGreatConfrontation'': Superman's nemesis Muto isn't interested in fighting Superman physically; he just wants him dead. So he comes up with scenarios such like keeping a whole city hostage and then demanding Superman essentially kills himself.

* The ''Basalt City Chronicles'' has Tors Beers (who hates fighting) taught to end fights as quickly as possible--biting, clawing, breaking bones, and ''outright killing'' are all acceptable means to win (though it's best to avoid the last).

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/12444282/chapters/28319676 Volpina, the Accidental Matchmaker]]'' this is how the two fights with Volpina (after the one in canon) can be described:
** In chapter one, Volpina has put dozens of illusions in the dead-end corridor she ''knew'' her opponents would come from. But as she has unknowingly put them in the room ''behind'' her, they just jumped her from behind and destroyed the Akumatized object.
** In chapter two Volpina steals a car, even if RoofHopping to her goal would be faster, because she plans to [[CarFu use it as a weapon]], and when Ladybug and Chat Noir catch up with her she [[spoiler:throws the ''chaffeur'' at Chat Noir and hits Ladybug with the ''engine block'']]. [[UpToEleven She gets dirtier from that]], and gives them a desperate run for their money.

* Red in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' believes that there's nothing wrong with using his bloodliner abilities to give himself an edge in Pokémon battles since there's no written rule forbidding them. [[OpposingCombatPhilosophies This puts him at odds with Ash]], [[HonorBeforeReason who refuses to use his own in competitive battling because he considers it cheating]].

* In ''Fanfic/DreamingOfSunshine'', Shikako prefers to ambush her opponents or take them out with traps whenever possible, and would even [[spoiler:[[MurderIsTheBestSolution resort to murder]] if she thinks it's the safest and most efficient way to achieve her goals.]]

* Dumbledore lectures Harry in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11613187/1/What-Was-Your-Plan What Was Your Plan]]'' for going to a duelist to learn how to fight, noting that dueling is useful only for dueling where there's rules on what you can or cannot do, likening it to a glorified play. He even notes that Harry's mistake was to draw a wand on him, believing him to be an enemy, and not immediately casting as many borderline illegal spells as he could thing of. If Harry had gone to someone like Snape or Moody, they would have drilled such an "unforgivably stupid action" out of him.
