* In the film ''Film/{{Constantine}}'', based ''ever-so-lightly'' on the ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'' comics, the titular character hunts down demonic "halfbreeds" who violate the Balance and sends them back to Hell. In the comic, he's more of a street magician who basically fights anyone who pisses him off or helps people who come to him (if he doesn't laugh them away). See TrenchcoatBrigade.

* Some ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' seasons (toned down for the most part in their Series/PowerRangers counterparts) do feature enemies that are of supernatural origin and mainly of the demonic order, with the more recent ones being ''[[Series/ResshaSentaiTokkyuger Tokkyuger]]'' and ''[[Series/ShurikenSentaiNinninger Ninninger]]'', with our heroes being of course the slayers.

* The ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' series is earliest known example in gaming. Each entry has you protecting the people of Transylvania, by battling your way through Count Dracula's legions, to face-off against the Count, himself. Earlier games in the series chronicled the exploits of [[BadassFamily the Belmont Family]], though later games featured all new protagonists and, occasionally, the Count's son, Alucard, siding against his father.
* Dante of ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'', who [[Pantheon/{{Combat}} is the god of this trope]], even before we listed it. He mostly fits into the mercenary type. As a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-demon]], he also happens to be a HunterOfHisOwnKind.
** Nero as well in the fourth game.

** Played straight in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta 2}}'' when Gomorrah, one of the demons that Bayonetta uses to finish off angels, turns on her and she has to put him down. She then has to penetrate into the heart of Inferno in order to [[OrpheanRescue save Jeanne]], who saved her from the aforementioned demon and got DraggedOffToHell, before her soul is consumed forever.

* Many of the Heroes in the ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series have slain countless demons (BigBad, {{Mook}}s, and everything in between) in the numerous installments. In fact, most ''Dragon Quest'' games are more about fighting ''Demons'' than Dragons.

* Played with in ''VideoGame/AsurasWrath''. The Gohma heavily resemble Demons and might as well be them for setting and story purposes, and the job of the protagonist and the other Demigods is to fight them. [[spoiler:They're not actually Demons or anything like it at all]].
* This is the job of the Vigil of Stendarr in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', formed after the events of the previous game.
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', your job as the Player Character is to close the [[{{Hellgate}} Gates of Oblivion]] by stepping through, killing your way through lots of Daedra, and grabbing the Sigil Stones used to power the gates.
* Since they are the God's own champions, the heroes of VideoGame/{{Darklands}} are supposed to destroy hell's spawn whenever they encounter it. The easiest way to do it is to find a Satanic village, defeat its inhabitants and find their unholy altar. Ironically, summoning the demon may be even harder than actually defeating it, especially when you party has low non-combat skills.

* Main characters from {{Shadowgirls}}, especially [[spoiler: Shadowchild - they don't call her Slayer of the Elder Gods without a reason]]. However, only if we count beings from the Franchise/CthulhuMythos and its [[EldritchAbomination Eldritch Abominations]] as demons.

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' where the title character kills angels instead of demons. Is it ironic that her game, ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', and the first ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry'' were all made by the same guy, Hideki Kamiya? He deserves his own page for the amount of tropes that he and Clover Studios (and Platinum Games) use, this one included.

* Most non-Persona Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei games have the main characters act as this, [[{{Mon}} while allying with a handful of 6-12]]. Though [[SummonMagic only]] [[RaidouKuzunohaVsTheSoullessArmy one]] [[RaidouKuzunohaVsKingAbaddon group]] actually does so for a living.

* Guts in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. As the Black Swordsman, his role fits squarely into HunterOfMonsters, thanks to him being madder than hell about the events of the Eclipse, and the [[MoralEventHorizon actions]] [[FaceHeelTurn of]] [[DarkMessiah Griffith]] in particular. Eventually, he stops actively seeking out [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Apostles]] to kill in order to focus on healing Casca's insanity, but still runs into them, largely because of [[MagneticPlotDevice the Brands of Sacrifice]] borne by both of them.
