** Spartan-III Jun-A266 of Noble Team normally comes across as a FriendlySniper in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', as he has quite the mouth on him. However, he's at heart a loner, with his psychiatrist expressing concern that he has "an unhealthy emotional detachment in regards to the consequences of his actions"; while Noble's commanding officer Colonel Holland considers this assessment to be faulty, Jun has had to be treated for PTSD before. One of his quotes is "I kill the enemy, but do not hate them".

** Linda-058 is known as the foremost sniper specialist of the Spartan-[=IIs=], with ImprobableAimingSkills taken UpToEleven, and has been since about the age of twelve. She takes sniping as a challenge, even being shown to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome shoot pilots out of Banshees while hanging upside down by a single cord wrapped around her foot]]. And that was a day after she had been brought BackFromTheDead. Once she gets into position, her mind enters a Zen-Buddhist state and her kills are reported in an icy-cold voice. She works better without a spotter, and fits the lone wolf description better than any other Spartan. Several of her fellow Spartans have noted that she makes sniping an art.

* Jun from ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' is an odd example. He may be a deadshot sniper, but he certainly has quite the mouth on him. Also, he says "I kill the enemy, but do not hate them." However, he has been known for Post-Traumatic Stress. ''But'', in his psychiatric evaluation, his doctor reported that he had an "unhealthy emotional detachment in regards to the consequences of his actions", though his commanding officer Colonel Holland considers this assessment to be faulty.
* On a related note, the {{Franchise/Halo}} novels have Linda, the Spartan II sniper, who is the quietest and most detached of the Spartans.

* [[ActionGirl Imperator Furiosa]] from ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', in addition to her driving skills, is an incredible shot. In many scenes, Max can be seen taking out enemies with a large number of shots, while Furiosa is almost always pulling off single headshots. Her skill is acknowledged when Max misses The Bullet Farmer with two of their last three sniper shots. He hands her the rifle and, using his shoulder as a support, she pulls off a perfect shot to blind the Farmer.

See also WeaponOfChoice. Compare with ArcherArchetype in medieval/fantasy settings. Likely to find work as a ProfessionalKiller. A common subversion is the FriendlySniper, who is not only much more personable but also usually saner (and is more likely to be depicted as a good guy). Contrast ScopeSnipe.

To tell them apart, check out if the character is portrayed as evil or eerie/sinister - or at least it is shown that those aspects of the job have an adverse and/or dehumanizing impact on their psyche.

* Subverted with the Sniper from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'', who is quite animated. However, he still remains the loner of the group. A quote from his ''Meet the Team'' video is a former page quote:
--->"Feelin's? Look, mate, you know who has a lot of feelin's? Blokes what bludgeon their wife to death wif a golf trophy. Professionals [[EvenEvilHasStandards have standards]]: [[AffablyEvil be polite]], [[OneHitKill be efficient]], [[CrazyPrepared have a plan]] [[AxCrazy to kill everyone you meet]]."
** Not only does he provide the (former) page quote in game the phrase is used in four of his achievements named "Be Polite," "Be Efficient," "Have a plan," and "Kill Everyone You Meet."
** It's quite likely that he switches between this and FriendlySniper depending on whether he's [[http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Sniper_responses currently sniping,]] judging how being scoped makes him use colder, gruffer voice clips for the same lines.
** The Spy is perhaps a milder and less obvious version, "Ambassador" spies often rely on precision shots and as someone defined by stealth he certainly has the personality. His interactions are usually cold and full of BondOneLiners .
