* Volume Five of ''{[WebAnimation/RWBY}}'' has the Albain brothers of the [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters White Fang]] attempt to assassinate [[spoiler:Ghira and Kali Belladonna]]. Clearly aware of the fact that AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, the brothers not only send in a load of armed mooks, but join the assault on [[spoiler:the Belladonna manor]] themselves. ''It's still not enough''. Special mention goes to [[spoiler:Kali]], who bludgeons an assassin into submission with a ''[[ImprovisedWeapon tea tray]]''.

** Reapers are assassins who are specifically target [[{{Grimm}} Grimms]], but since Grimms are far from helpless, their success is far from guaranteed. The Reaper who goes after Marie Kessler overpowers her, but he makes the mistake of disregarding her police-trained nephew, Nick, who shoots him dead. The Reapers who later come to kill Nick make the mistake of thinking that two of them will be enough to kill him. [[spoiler:Nick sends a note back to their boss, "Next time send your best." This is accompanied by the heads of the two Reapers.]]

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', various people will, at times, send Dark Brotherhood assassins after you for stealing from them, as will [[spoiler: [[CantArgueWithElves Ancano]], near the end of the College of Winterhold questline. [[ScrewYouElves This doesn't work]]]]. This is a bad idea, considering just who the player character is.
** Delphine is noted to have killed a Thalmor assassination team that was sent to kill her.

* ''Literature/HaloTheColeProtocol'': A Sangheili/Elite Kaidon (feudal keep lord) is attacked during the night by several assassins. He manages to kill them. The next day, he calls on his council, disrobes in front of them, and shows that he doesn't have a scratch on him (getting wounded in battle is shameful to a Sangheili). He then figures out which of the councilors sent the assassins and kills him, then exiles his family (he would have slaughtered the family, but the councilor actually showed some resistance before dying). It is customary to express one's disapproval with one's lord by attempting an assassination. However, a true Sangheili doesn't send hired swords, he goes himself.

However, a true Sangheili doesn't send hired swords, [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy he goes himself]]. The kaidon in question? ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' fans know him best as a young Thel 'Vadam, the future Arbiter of ''VideoGame/Halo2'' and probably the most dangerous fighter in the galaxy outside of the [[SuperSoldier Master Chief]] himself.

* Near the end of ''Film/GhostInTheShell'', the BigBad sends hitmen to take out the members of Section 9. All the assassins end up dead. Even the elderly Aramaki survives by using his bulletproof briefcase as a shield and then takes out all the hitmen sent to kill him with his revolver.

* The Red Prince, in ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'' has survived so many assassination attempts, and killed so many would be assassins, that he's grown ''bored'' of the constant attempts on his life. Plus, it's not the fact that they're trying to kill him that bothers him, it's their terrible manners.
