* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', Tywin Lannister employs a carnival of killers for "foraging" missions, which is essentially sending armed men to plunder and murder the enemy's peasants. His troupe includes a mercenary gang nicknamed the Bloody Mummers, which is almost literally a carnival of killers, right down to a MonsterClown. In fitting with the spirit of the trope, the group is also extensively multicultural, and individual members often have their own signature derangements.

In fitting with the spirit of the trope, the group is also extensively multicultural, and individual members often have their own signature derangements. They are led by Vargo Hoat, his long beard and helmet with horns lead to him being nicknamed the goat. However he's a sadistic psychopath who enjoys cutting off limbs, and even his laughable SpeechImpediment is sinister, due to it coming from him catching a disease from raping someone.

* In Lex, a secret society aims to dispense justice where they think the legal system has failed. Their chosen method is to capture serial killers and other interesting types and offer them the choice of working for them or death. The comic's main team is a diverse group of assassins. Including a gentleman bomber, hacker, SM-mistress and punisherlike ex cop. By the third album, an escalating conflict with the mafia makes Lex concentrate it's forces and they call in every killer they control. Technically, Lex aims to be the good guys but their morality is questionable and their assets approach can be quite brutal.
