** After beating one goblin [[GrievousHarmWithABody with another goblin]], Mercy is delighted that the second goblin stabbed her in the stomach and visibly disappointed that they don't have time for her to "negotiate" with more of them.

* [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} Mercy Graves]] in the ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2565609/169/Odd-Ideas Mercy]]'' series both enjoys fighting to an incredible degree (she frequently takes advantage of the fact [[Literature/HarryPotter Gringotts goblins]] negotiate with violence) but violence in general, having once bet Harry she could break all 126 bones in a person's appendicular skeleton without breaking them.
* Besides Kenpachi, both Dead Eye/Ichigo and Unohana are massive blood knights in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9172924/1/To-Prey-Upon-the-Dead To Prey Upon the Dead]]''. Unohana even stops Ichigo from killing Kenpachi specifically because she doesn't want Yamamoto to kill Ichigo before she can fight him.

* Dayna in ''Series/BlakesSeven'' is a weapon designer who [[GunNut loves guns and making them more powerful]] but also enjoys melee weapons because they're "more personal, more exciting". Her official motivation throughout is trying to get revenge for the death of her father, but she's strongly implied to just like fighting in general.

* ''Fanfic/PokemonMysteryDungeonDefendersOfWarmth'': Edge/[[spoiler: Cecil]], who at first just seeks out worthy opponents to challenge to battle, even killing some of them, hoping to grow stronger. He even [[spoiler: attempts to wake up the extremely powerful legendary pokemon who balance the wold]] just so he can fight them. Discovers the reason for this attitude when he remembers [[spoiler: he failed to save Alexa on their last night as humans]].

* The titular villain of ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' was like this. He didn't want to conquer the world, but rather to find a WorthyOpponent to challenge and develop his skills and experience as a supervillain. As soon as he kills his own nemesis, he's left without a worthy opponent to reduce his boredom. So, he creates a new superhero nemesis to give him a good fight, only for him to later on become more evil than Megamind himself and thus have to be stopped. [[spoiler:As soon as Megamind defeats his own creation, he ends up saving the city and becoming a superhero instead, thus giving him more ''real'' challenges to feed his adrenaline rush, even though it would mean retiring from the supervillain business to become said superhero]].

* ''Flim/{{Aliens}}'' all The Marine Troopers are all this, (expect Gorman). Even the main female of the squad Jenette Vasquez was the most blood thirsty of lot, screaming the iconic "''LET'S ROOOOOOCK!!!''" before fighting the Xenomorphs. Hudson acted tough for most part but revealed himself as a LovableCoward toward the end of the movie. But still died like a blood knight screaming at the Xenomorphs (who were everywhere)to give him their best they've got as he killed dozens of them before being overwhelmed.

* ''Flim/{{Terminator}}'' a subversion as while the [[AIIsACrapshoot Skynet]] and all Terminators kill millions of humans and seek to destroy any threat to them, they are still robots and as such take no real pleasure in murder. The T-800 that protects young John Conner in [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay Judgment Day]] only acts like a blood knight due to John teaching it human mannerisms.

* ''Flim/{{Predator}}'' Every single Yautja from birth to death are blood knights to an outrageous degree, they won't kill pregnant woman, children and unarmed civilians just because there's ''no sport in it''. In fact the only people they hunt on Earth are policemen, well organized mobsters and trigger happy soldiers and military forces- anyone who could make the hunt all the more greater. Yautjas even line the skulls (and spines) of their prey around their hunting ground and inside their space ships as trophies of their work. And when they find a WorthyOpponent, they even cast aside their high-tech weapons on occasion to even the odds and make things more entertaining. To ensure victory, they [[TakingYouWithMe blow themselves up]] as a last resort, partly to kill the prey in a last ditch effort, and partly to prevent their weaponry from falling into the wrong hands.
** This aspect was parodied in [[WebOriginal HowItShouldOfEnded]] of Predator when Anna reaches down to pick up the wounded Poncho's rifle:

** Tony Stark aka Flim/{{Iron Man}} 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 intention 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 show 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?''".

** At the start, Film/{{Thor}} is like any of Asgardian of legend: boastful, headstrong, and will gladly take any challenger to task in the name of his homeland laughing like boy when fighting colossal Ice Giants, and still smiling even when one headbutts him in the face. However spending some time on Earth weans him from his one-track mindedness. Nonetheless, he still relishes fighting; upon realizing how much of a challenge the Hulk is, he ''smirks''.
** In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', the Hulk only has one reason to live, As Cap gives him the simple order "Smash" he gives brutish smirk and gives the invading Chitauri something to think about. Even facing [[ChessMaster Loki]] a Asgardian a god in the eyes of humans, Hulk doesn't waste a second smashing little brother in ground and walking away growling ''Puny God'' in disappointment.
*** It becomes clear that even even tempered Dr Bruce Banner is just a Blood Knight on the inside always and The Hulk is just that aspect of his personality enhanced to the dangerous extreme. As he says to Cap before punching down a giant space snake ''That's thing Cap, I'm always angry''.

** 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. [[spoiler: In his solo movie Film/SpidermanHomecoming Peter lets a bank robber punch him multiple times in the face before bringing him down, due to this reckless attitude, Tony Stark limits Peter for his (and others) safety in mentoring him to be a Avenger. But even Tony admits he last person to pull Spidey up on recklessness]].
* ''Flim/TheMaskOfZorro'' Alejandro is this before and after taking up the mantle of Zorro, even when not {{Revenge}} driven. He just loves fighting and Swordplay as result of watching former Zorro as a boy. De La Vega ''the former Zorro'' is of the same mold but has cooled his swashbuckling ways in his old age and even holds the younger and more reckless Zorro back.

* ''Series/BarbariansRising'': Attila is portrayed as far more savage and outright evil than the other barbarian leaders: whereas they're portrayed as [[ALighterShadeOfGrey lighter-gray]] [[YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters freedom fighters]], he's invading from outside Rome and simply wants loot and slaughter. Creator/EmilHostina plays him as [[AxCrazy bloodthirsty bordering on psychotic]]. This has the effect of making the Roman-Visigothic alliance gathered to stop him into the heroes of the segment, in a reversal of the rest of the series.

When the crew has to get rid of a sea beast via getting in stranded on land, she mentions that she chose to not go into seafaring because she doesn't like this method and prefers killing trolls and beasts with her own hands.
