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.

** [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureVentoAureo Part 5]] contains its own variant, where the group of assassins are all from a mafia family that the protagonists ''also belong to''. The heroes want to overthrow the boss and create a [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily nicer mafia]], but they're tasked with guarding the boss' daughter who becomes a target for everyone else. While the villains mostly belonging to a single Italian gang means less variety in certain aspects, the villains still showcase a wide variety of approaches and designs.
