As an antagonist, he has a good chance of being an AntiVillain, since he doesn't want to kill the heroes, necessarily, just fight them. If he can find someone [[DefeatMeansFriendship tough enough to beat him]] he might undergo a HeelFaceTurn and join the hero's team, or simply gain a [[WorthyOpponent newfound respect]] for his foe that he [[DefeatMeansRespect didn't have before]]. He might deliberately disadvantage himself in order to make fights last longer and loves to reveal that [[IAmNotLeftHanded he is not left-handed]]. Despite the brutality that this trope implies, it's not uncommon for them to be a NobleDemon as well, when they want an exciting fight on ''specific terms'' or when they reject unfair advantages because it would make the fight no fun. He may even betray his boss if he insists on interfering to [[StalkerWithACrush pursue and obsess]] over his [[FoeYay foe]] on his own terms. Less pleasant ones may [[KickTheDog do all kinds of horrible things]] to trigger their opponent's BerserkButton enough to fight them. Though if they specifically love to kill (rather than fight) they are a PsychoForHire.

*** Rocket Racoon. He approaches firearms, explosives, and their use with all the giddy joy and level-headed justification of a serial arsonist. When he is finally given a weapon (a large, high-powered Gatling-style gun that's twice his size) to use during the prison break, his reaction is essentially a barely-contained orgasm:

* Film/{{Tron}}: Sark's EstablishingCharacterMoment is de-rezzing a hapless [[RedShirt conscript]] on the Game Grid, and ''thanking'' Master Control when his boss called him "brutal and needlessly sadistic," and all but salivating over the possibility of engaging in combat against military Programs.

** Spider-man ''yes even him'' as first seen in Civil War when Spidey utterly overpowers Falcon and Bucky, but is delighted as school boy (which he is) throughout the fight, even geeking out over Bucky's metal arm when he effortless catches his fist. Even up against Giant-man while shocked at first, Spidey leads the rest of Team Iron Man in bringing it down and exclaims in triumph when he succeeds, only to be knocked down as well. In his solo movie Film/SpidermanHomecoming, Peter is completely reckless at times, extremely anxious for another chance to kick with the Avengers after Berlin and is left disappointed. Spidey even brakes the [[PowerLimiter limits]] aka "training wheels" put inside his suit by Stark when foiling the Vulture's plans leading to him getting punished by Tony himself. Before the end of the climax of the movie, Peter was throwing his school and social life away to chase the glory of being a superhero before [[DespairEventHorizon reality kicks in]], but heeding his Stark's words Spidey learns from his reckless mistakes and [[HeroicSpirit man-ups]]. [[spoiler: Peter plays it safe from then on, even refusing Stark's offer to be become recognized officially as a Avenger despite wanting it to fight with TheTeam so badly before then]].

** Charles Gunn, was introduced into the series as this. Slaying vampires every night in L.A, Gunn found the Angel gang's smart careful way of fighting evil "boring" and preferred just to go in swinging. [[spoiler: This changes when he and the others join [[EvilInc Wolfram & Hart]] and gets a brain upgrade turning him into a super lawyer. Though Gunn still likes roughing it, he enjoys the intellectual position, but his mindset comes at terrible [[KillTheCuite cost]] and Gunn goes back to his street-wise personality. Even when faced against almost certain death in the finale, Gun just says he'll ''take the thousand on the left''.

** Aragon the {{Ranger}}/TheGoodKing likes to be civil, abelit cautious but against his foes Aragon can't hide his satisfaction. Smiling when faced with [[LegionsOfHell Uruk Hai]] on Amon Hen, and is completely okay with the idea dying in battle so long as it's going out in blaze of glory with his friends. As Aragon says when before chasing after the Uruk Hai that captured Merry and Pippin: "''Let's hunt some orc''".

** Tony Stark aka Film/IronMan funnily enough only became a true blood knight '''after''' he shut down the Weapon's Program for the military and built his suits due to his four month stint in a Afghan cave. Where after his HeelFaceTurn, Tony took much pleasure in fighting back against his kidnappers, as he said upon escaping the cave in his Mark 1 suit... "''My turn''". Tony is mostly a well intentioned MadScientist but it's clear as we see him fight the villains, Tony just loves fighting and building more suits to fight better. Despite more or less being a man in a can, Tony doesn't back down even when up against Thor (only smiling as Thor's lightingbolt powers his suit up). Tony even shows enjoyment when fighting ''the freaking Hulk'' who would ruin his day if Tony wasn't wearing the suit made to fight said person. Pepper Pots and many others claim Tony is self destructive, to which he replies "''Aren't we all?''".

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'':



** ''Series/{{Angel}}'' loves a good slugfest, even when he just [[WasOnceAMan normal human]] he continuously got in bar fights aside from whoring around with wenches. After becoming a vampire (Angelus) he plays it smart becoming a SmugSnake but that changes when he gets [[CursedWithASoul cursed with a soul and conscience]]. Angel loves fighting evil and actievly dissapointment when he can't go hunting, hell the only times where Angel isn't a Blood Knight is when he's Angelus.

[[spoiler: This changes when he and the others join [[EvilInc Wolfram & Hart]] and gets a brain upgrade turning him into a super lawyer. Though Gunn still likes roughing it, he enjoys the intellectual position, but his mindset comes at terrible cost and goes back to his street-wise personality. Even when faced against almost certain death in the finale, Gun just says he'll ''take the thousand on the left''.
** Wesley is unique example, he was BadassBookworm who was excited to fight evil as a ''Rougue Demon hunter'' and after joining Angel's gang was always opt for one-liners. But after a tragic series of events Wesley mellows out and has a calm collect approach to foes, remniscent of Jack Bauer.
