** A modern-day example is Gustave, a monstrous Nile crocodile who hunts humans and other animals ust for the sake of killing, and has survived countless attempts at killing him. He was last seen in 2015, dragging an entire bull into the water. So far no one has been able to catch him, much less kill him.

* In ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', Colonel Packard becomes obsessed with hunting down the titular ape after Kong annihilates most of his helicopter squadron. His single-minded obsession endangers the lives of the surviving members of the expedition, most of whom just want to get off the damn island, and ultimately [[spoiler:gets Packard killed without causing any lasting harm to Kong]].

A situation in which TheHunter fixates on an animal as his ArchEnemy as a result of twisted logic, almost always a direct result of a past [[ItsPersonal personal grudge]]. Be it an animal that constantly thwarts his efforts or just some plain old mindless beast that made off with [[AnArmAndALeg one of the human's limbs]], the human dedicates [[RevengeBeforeReason all of his time]] and [[TheDeterminator effort]] toward the capture or [[DisproportionateRetribution killing]] of the beast, [[HeWhoFightsMonsters even if]] it [[TakingYouWithMe kills him]].

A human SuperPersistentPredator -- in some cases, The Hunter is justified in hunting the animal because ItCanThink. In others, the Hunter himself illustrates that HumansAreTheRealMonsters or HumansAreCthulhu. See HeWhoFightsMonsters.

* OlderThanRadio: One of the best known examples is the deadly rivalry between Captain Ahab and Literature/MobyDick. The relationship has been subject to much parody. Ahab himself [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this trope in the original novel -- he essentially said that if he couldn't hunt down the abstract fates that ultimately cost him his leg, the eponymous whale would be the next best thing.

Ahab himself [[LampshadeHanging hung a lampshade]] on this trope in the original novel -- he essentially said that if he couldn't hunt down the abstract fates that ultimately cost him his leg, the eponymous whale would be the next best thing. The book itself deconstructs this, as its unlikely that the whale even recognized Ahab, much less understood why the loudmouth human was hunting him.



* Predators sometimes, for whatever reason, will imprint upon humans as prey and go out of their way to hunt people even over what they would normally hunt. The only way to deal with such animals, known appropriately as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-eater Man-Eaters]], is to invoke this trope, hunt them down, and euthanize them. The most notorious and well known example are the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsavo_maneaters Tsavo Maneaters]]. They were killed by Lt. Col. John Henry Patterson, who went full Captain Ahab to bring them down.
