* ''FanFic/ABrighterDark'': Hans' justification for being a horrific rapist and murderer is because it's the only thing he's good at, and he just happens to have a lot of fun while doing it. [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Sometimes he feels like the only purpose of his existence was to kill people and be hated for it.]] Comes off more sympathetically than it sounds.
* In ''Fanfic/ForumOfThrones'', this is one of the Burned Man's reasons for remaining in Oldtown even after it got so dangerous for him and despite Harpy's wishes. As a cripple, he simply has no other opportunity to affect the lives of others.
* In chapter 105 of ''Fanfic/AmbienceAFleetSymphony'', Suzukaze admits that she's always had a mean streak and never been good at being nice and comforting like Murasame or Samidare. The only thing she can do well for her sisters is fight for them, so don't deny her that.

* This serves as Petra's approach to Thieves Guild work in ''FanFic/Draknophobia''.
* ''Fanfic/SanzaSalazarSaga'': This is one of the reasons Sanza continues to put on the Red X suit and remain a thief even after working with the Titans so much.
* ''Fanfic/SoldToTheHighestBidder'': This is one reason Eduard wants Ivan to keep him as a bondsman instead of setting him free; he's spent most of his life becoming good at this specifically. Luckily, he does find [[GadgeteerGenius another hobby]].
* This is why Konori of ''Fanfic/ToAruverseRewriteProject'' intends to become a police officer once she's old enough.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Zigzagged with Nick who is a low-level, low-risk ConArtist whose scams are technically legal just dishonest (apart from tax evasion). He behaves this way because as a fox he decided that this is what society expects him to be and it isn't so much that he likes it as much as that he doesn't believe he could do anything else.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Zigzagged with Nick who is a (borderline) ConArtist whose businesses are mostly legitimate (apart from tax evasion) because as a fox, tricking people is the thing he's best at and nobody expects him to be anything else and it isn't so much that he likes it as much as that he doesn't believe he could do anything else. [[spoiler: Also he is homeless and this is the only way to sustain himself. That's until he meets Judy.]]

See also DoWrongRight and PunchClockVillain. Compare EvilVirtues and ChronicVillainy. Contrast ReluctantWarrior, who fights because he has to... and isn't necessarily good at it.

See also DoWrongRight and PunchClockVillain. Compare EvilVirtues and ChronicVillainy. Contrast ReluctantWarrior, who fights because he has to... and isn't necessarily good at it. Many character who choose to be JustAGangster do so because crime is the only thing they're good at.

* In Creator/DorothyLSayers' ''[[LordPeterWimsey Gaudy Night]]'', Harriet Vane discusses how she continued to write murder mysteries after being tried and acquitted for murder; she says that anyone with feeling would rather scrub floors, but it happens that she would scrub floors very badly and writes mysteries very well.
