They won't hesitate to use a DangerousForbiddenTechnique. They have [[WouldntHitAGirl no]] [[WouldntHurtAChild compunctions]] about [[WouldHitAGirl striking a woman]] or [[WouldHurtAChild a child]]. Or [[GroinAttack hitting a guy in the crotch]] (they also know that [[ArtisticLicenseBiology women are really just as vulnerable]] to groin attacks as men are). Or about attacking someone [[InTheBack from behind]]. Or [[AHandfulForAnEye throwing sand in their eyes]]. Or [[DefeatByModesty pulling down their pants]] (or flipping up their skirts if dealing with women or a [[ManInAKilt kilt wearing man]]). Or the HeyYouHaymaker. Or [[ManBitesMan biting them]]. Or [[ISurrenderSuckers pretending to surrender]]. Or... [[OverlyLongGag well, you get the idea.]] However, there ''can'' be different levels of this. Even those who don't believe in fighting fair [[EveryoneHasStandards may still have lines they won't cross, such as]] [[ThouShallNotKill refusing to kill]] or [[WouldNotShootACivilian not hurting anyone who's not already part of the fight]].

* ”Literature/TheIronTeeth” web serial’s forests are haunted by many different types of dangerous monsters. They are incredibly dangerous and a lot of people perish within them.

This typically applies to "real" fights where there's actually something at stake that's more important than a cash prize, a trophy, or a title belt, and usually not professional fights in a controlled environment where safeguards are in place to prevent one side from suffering too much damage and where one can be disqualified for not abiding by the rules (though pragmatists in these types of fights are far from non-existent).

rules. In such settings, the Combat Pragmatist is an unsympathetic character (usually the main antagonist) who shows through his ruthlessness that he honors nothing -- not his opponents, not the sport and its customs, not the tournament's sacred history -- but winning.

They do ''not'' suffer from a ComplexityAddiction, are never afraid to use a MundaneSolution (nor do they need it to be [[StatingTheSimpleSolution pointed out to them]]), ''never'' assume that the other person will fight "honorably", have no interest in a SelfImposedChallenge, don't care if their opponent is a [[WorthyOpponent worthy one]], and will not hesitate to KickThemWhileTheyAreDown. They almost always have their {{weapon of choice}} either on them or near them at all times, and possibly a spare or two. If not they're willing to use [[ImprovFu absolutely]] ''[[ImprovisedWeapon anything]]'' [[ImprobableWeaponUser as a weapon]] and only resort to GoodOldFisticuffs if there's no weapon nearby.
