* Lieutenant-Colonel Jack Churchill allegedly declared following VJ day that "If it wasn't for those damn Yanks, we could have kept the war going another 10 years!"years!" Churchill is credited with causing the last known bow-and-arrow war casualty (shot a German sergeant with a barbed arrow from his longbow), walked back into German held territory after capturing 42 German soldiers to ''retrieve his longsword,'' and charged a Norwegian beach from a landing craft while playing his bagpipes. His perspective on the war, like his perspective on virtually everything else, was . . . unique.

*** It also helps that he was directly and blatantly based off of Alexander the Great: he didn't run out of worlds to conquer, he wanted to push into the Eastern Fringe, the only part of the galaxy where the Astronomicon (the only way to know where you're going in Warp space) didn't reach. His men refused and, realizing that his grand crusade had ground to a halt and he was now only good for pacification and consolidation, ''that'' is when he cried. He then may or may not have flown off into the Fringe ''by himself'', [[KnightTemplar all in the Emperor's name]].

This trope is the intersection of BloodKnight with ColonelBadass. Not necessarily TheNeidermeyer (who is hated by his subordinates), and usually not a GeneralRipper (who's paranoid and crazy), nor a SociopathicSoldier (who doesn't necessarily enjoy war). Not necessarily mean to the troops or totally obsessed, just someone who enjoys the war a bit too much. They also tend to be very good at combat. Any commanding officer from a {{Proud Warrior Race|Guy}} will automatically be this trope; just expect the words "honor in battle" to be thrown around a lot more. See also ItAmusedMe and BloodKnight.

%%* ''ComicBook/FuryMax'' * ''ComicBook/FuryMax'', also by Ennis, has Col. Rudi Gagarin. He loves war, to an almost disturbing degree. Fury himself is ''close'' to this, but tries to keep his eyes on fighting a war that will win a peace, rather than just fight them for the sake of it.

* The Hellscream lineage in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}''. Grom Hellscream drank [[TheCorruption demonic blood]] ''twice'' to defeat a powerful foe and skirmished with enemy forces even against direct orders. His son Garrosh may be even worse; he's fought Thrall for leadership of the Horde, goads King Wrynn into a fight whenever he can such as during a diplomatic meeting about ''an old god getting loose'', and invades the Night Elf lands in the middle of the apocalypse and is responsible for the death of Cairne Bloodhoof. To be fair he isn't solely responsible for Cairne's death. As told in ''[[WarcraftExpandedUniverse The Shattering: Prelude to Cataclysm]]'', [[spoiler: Garrosh's weapon was poisoned when he allowed Magatha Grimtotem to anoint it prior to a duel Cairne challenged Garrosh to because he disagreed with Garrosh's style of leading the Horde and thought he was responsible for a massacre on a peaceful meeting]]. While dueling, Cairne keels over from a minor blow, and it looks like Garrosh killed him. Garrosh then gives his support to Baine Bloodhoof after Baine takes his justice on Magatha.

* In Garth Ennis's run, especially in the miniseries ''[[ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX Punisher: Born]]'', the ComicBook/{{Punisher}} is said to enjoy violence. In ''Born'', Castle [[TheUriahGambit tricks a general threatening to close down his firebase into standing in a sniper's view]], is said by the narrator to be in love with combat, and apparently "talked" to with a supernatural force which claims that Castle wants battle and urges him to take a deal that will make his war last forever. When everything's falling apart and castle is surrounded by VC, he agrees to the deal. Only afterwards is it revealed that the price of survival and continuing war is his family.
