** The Hound tells Sansa that "killing is the sweetest thing there is."

to:

** The Hound tells Sansa that "killing is the sweetest thing there is."" And he further goes on to say that everyone who has ever done it loves it on some level. May be partially subverted, despite his above quote. Most of his fighting he's done has been a means to an end, and he certainly doesn't glorify the act of killing.

** Gregor Clegane doesn't seem to aspire to any calling higher than rape, pillage and burning his way across Westeros.

to:

** Gregor Clegane doesn't seem to aspire to any calling higher than rape, pillage and burning his way across Westeros. It's pretty clear he became a warrior to quench his blood thirst. Subverted in that people who can actually put up a fight just angers him more, he likes killing but not the challenge.

** Dwarf Troll Slayers exhibit this, although it's not a question of thrills: seeking out the biggest and meanest foe you can think of and fighting it is essentially the [[DeathSeeker Dwarfs' form of honorable suicide]].

to:

** Dwarf Troll The Dwarfs are an interesting example. Left to their own devices, they'd be more than happy to live a peaceful life mining rare minerals and turning them into impressive works of craftsmanship. However, they are also obsessed with grudges; any wrong against the Dwarfen people are recorded in the Great Book of Grudges, and the pursuit of revenge is essentially a religious sacrament. [[CrapsackWorld The Warhammer universe being what it is,]] the Dwarfs are wronged very often and so the Book is [[DoorStopper more than a little full.]] As such, the Dwarfs glorify battle because they believe they're always in the right. Slayers exhibit this, although this in a different way, because it's not a question of thrills: seeking out the biggest and meanest foe you can think of and fighting it is essentially the [[DeathSeeker Dwarfs' form of honorable suicide]].

SubTrope of InHarmsWay. SisterTrope to CombatSadomasochist, TheRealMan, and BoisterousBruiser. Compare CavalierCompetitor and, for a more general trope, ChallengeSeeker. Also compare {{Sadist}}, whose favorite part of fighting is the pain and suffering of his opponent. May be from a MartyrdomCulture and will nearly always believe that WarIsGlorious. If he (or she, though it's much rarer, however; see LadyOfWar) is in the military, then he will almost inevitably be a ColonelKilgore. A MonsterKnight has a high chance of being one. A more violent example that nonetheless fights on the side of good may (or may not) be a SociopathicHero. Not to be confused with the [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Knight of Blood]], who is very unlike this trope. It also has [[IThoughtItMeant nothing to do with]] a knight who uses BloodMagic. Contrast ShellShockedVeteran, who is of the opposite mindset.

A WarGod is one of these pretty much by definition. If there's a whole society of guys who like combat, you've got a {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}}. If the character likes the 'killing' part more than the 'fighting' part, they're a PsychoForHire. The EgomaniacHunter also thrives on aimless violent thrill and loves a worthy quarry instead of opponent. If a character is in it for the challenge rather than just the fight, then we've got a SpiritedCompetitor. The Blood Knight's love of combat may be platonic, or it may have [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence sexual undertones]]. It could also overlap with AxCrazy if their love of fighting crosses the line into psychopathic violence and mental and emotional instability.

* ''Series/{{Blackadder}}'': King Richard IV (played by Creator/{{BRIAN BLESSED}}) is a comedic example, as a man who utterly revels in slaughter, orders his troops to attack his allies (telling them to just dress up as Germans), and goes on Crusades, not so much for religious reasons, as because he really likes to kill Turks using small pieces of cutlery. His attitude is best shown by his RousingSpeech before the Battle of Bosworth Field:

** A constant plot point in the ''Fanfic/SuperwomenOfEva'' stories where she's a villain is that she is such a hard-core version of this (as well as being a GloryHound) that she thinks [[HelpingWouldBeKillStealing the Superwomen's attempts to help win the war are instead "stealing" her victories and the recognition she'd get]] and thus ends up going to bloody war with them.
