A Carnival Of Killers occurs when a villain either hires the best assassins from around the world and sends them after the hero, or offers an open bounty on the hero's head that attracts a variety of assassins. A typical Carnival Of Killers will involve a large collection of assassins with radically different styles (e.g. a ColdSniper, a KnifeNut, a MadBomber, etc), and sometimes will include last season villains that have since fallen below the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil's current threshold. Sometimes one of the assassins will decide the best way to win the bounty is to take out the competition before taking out the hero.

* Wrestling/VinceMcMahon issued a contract on Wrestling/DGenerationX (Wrestling/ShawnMichaels and Wrestlling/TripleH) in the summer of 2006 when DX was running amok on ''Monday Night Raw''. Both Chris Masters and [[Wrestling/NickDinsmore Eugene]] (who, being a babyface, [[PragmaticVillainy didn't bear DX any ill will but just liked the idea of getting a reward]]) failed to collect, so Vince enlisted the help of Cuban businessman Armando Alejandro Estrada, who actually succeeded for a time in getting Triple H sent to jail after framing him for having smuggled Cuban cigars into the country. There were even hints that non-wrestling personnel could get involved: Vince boasted that he and his son Wrestling/ShaneMcMahon had access to "unlimited resources", causing DX to retort, [[ImNotAfraidOfYou "Bring in anybody from the street - we don't care."]] Eventually, at ''[=SummerSlam=]'', the [=McMahons=] had Wrestling/TheBigShow, [[Wrestling/KenAnderson Mr. Kennedy]], and [[NapoleonDelusion King]] [[Wrestling/BookerT Booker]]'s Court (Sir Wrestling/WilliamRegal and Sir Fit Finlay) rough up Shawn and Hunter before Vince and Shane even set foot in the ring - and DX ''still'' won.
