* The 1995 Venezuelan film ''Sicario'' has a group of Columbian street kids being trained for an assassination by a cartel boss. He picks the best one, the protagonist Jairo, and kills all the others. Despite a speech by the cartel boss how they're NotSoDifferent, Jairo knows full well he's next on the list after he carries out the assassin, so draws a gun on his best friend who's driving his getaway motorbike, only to be forced to kill him when he refuses to let him just walk away. Jairo and his girlfriend then try to get out of the city, only for Jario to be gunned down by another street kid like himself.

** In ''Redemption Games'' Rain and Dox find themselves on Mossad's hit list after they bungle an assignment, apparently killing two CIA agents in the process.
** In ''The Killer Ascendant'', Hilger kidnaps Dox and uses him as leverage to force Rain to kill three people. Rain quickly works out that the last target is nonexistent. Rain himself is the intended victim, as Hilger has no intention of having [[TheDreaded Rain]] come after him once the job is done.
** In ''The Detachment'', our anti-heroes find themselves on the Presidential hit list, blamed for a series of terrorist acts they were actually trying to stop.
