** All Slayers are this to some extent. In a season 4 episode, Buffy was unable to sleep, so she got out of bed, went on a hunt, and chased down and killed a vampire. She then returned to bed, finally able to sleep. As we also saw that season, a vigorous fight and kill makes her horny.

* ''Series/TheWire'': Felicia "Snoop" Pearson simply lives for shoot-outs and, by extension, killing. She even gets annoyed during a time of peace and prosperity for her [[DirtyBusiness organization's business]], which is usually something most would dream for.

* Gimli from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'': fearless, BadAss Dwarf, with shades of ViolentGlaswegian in his personality. Eager to avenge his race's ancestral grudge against Orcs, and in so doing racks up the largest single body count in all three movies. Oh, and played by professional LargeHam John Rhys-Davies.

The Blood Knight doesn't even have to be a particularly violent man most of the time. A common version found in Eastern fiction is the Wandering Martial Artist, who [[WalkingTheEarth Wanders the Earth]] looking for strong opponents to test his skills against. This might be coupled with a love of fair duels and a desire to {{challenge|Seeker}} the [[SpiritedCompetitor best and strongest]]. This type still enjoys the thrill of the fight, but usually eschews the death and bloodshed aspect. A living opponent, after all, can improve their skills and provide an even better challenge later. DefeatEqualsFriendship is a common occurrence with these guys, their opponent's or their own.

As an antagonist, he has a good chance of being a 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.

* ''Fanfic/AdviceAndTrust'': Asuka had trained to pilot a HumongousMecha and fight alien mosnters since she was a four-year-old child [[spoiler:and found her mother's corpse hanging from a ceiling.]] Fighting it is her whole life and she genuinely likes it. Her self image is so tied to being a Pilot that, when [[spoiler:Gendo fired her and Shinji]], she very nearly collapsed right away.

However, after she defeats {{Brainwashing}} solely through ThePowerOfHate, the "discipline" goes out the window and leads her to fully embrace this trope.

* ''Series/{{Daredevil2015}}'': While Daredevil does have moral and justice-minded reasons for going around and beating the crap out of criminals every night, the theory is also brought up many times that he also does it because he enjoys it and even that it might be the biggest reason he does so. No matter what, it's obvious that he loves a good fight. Before taking on a gang of dozens of bikers in Season 2, he gives a smile and low chuckle.

* ''Series/{{Merlin}}'': Sir Gwaine, an actual knight. In his first appearance, he helps Arthur and Merlin in a bar brawl ''because'' they were outnumbered and he likes those odds. In the season three finale, he says he doesn't think Arthur & Co. have any chance of succeeding in their attack to retake Camelot, but he "wouldn't miss it for the world".
