* The modus operandi for Franchise/{{Batman}} villain ComicBook/TwoFace, who believes that chance (specifically, a coin toss) is the only fair thing in the world, and will flip a coin to make any major decisions. How "fair" this is can become skewed, such as flipping a coin to decide whether or not he should honor an agreement when the other party already held up their end of the bargain or doing multiple coin flips for every petty little thing.

** Some versions of ComicBook/TheRiddler are quite fair about riddles and death traps. If his victim (usually Batman) escapes his death traps or solves his riddles, the Riddler will usually hold up his end of a deal or accept the result, even if he is [[PsychopathicManchild rather whiny about it]]. In Riddler's mind, he's [[InsufferableGenius the smartest man in the entire world]], and he won't lower himself to "baser instincts" because that would mean he isn't as smart as his victim. Of course, the Riddler has also been known to cheat like hell, so this should be taken with a grain of salt.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheQContinuum'', Q claims this is the difference between him and the BigBad 0. Q always offered the people he "tested" a chance to win. 0 on the other hand is a sadistic SoreLoser who went so far as to [[spoiler:trigger a supernova]] to wipe out a civilization that had beaten all of his "tests".

* Monokuma from ''Franchise/DanganRonpa'', and by extension the mastermind behind him, [[spoiler:Junko Enoshima]]. He sets rules for his DeadlyGame the he too is also bound by, purely through choice [[spoiler:in the first game at least]]. While he ''does'' break his rules once, he is willing to submit to demands when called on it.

* ''Manga/YuGiOh'': While many lesser villains are cheaters (and end up being a victim to Penalty Games), the various {{Big Bad}}s tend to avoid breaking the rules, since they have to defeat Yugi fairly in a Shadow Game against him. This doesn't stop them from exploiting various gaps in the rules, or from using Millennium shadow magic to gain an advantage of course; such as Dark Bakura rigging the 2d10 percentile dice ''with a portion of his mind'' to roll criticals every time in his TabletopRPG or {{Telepathy}}-wielding Pegasus invoking a high-level Shadow Game which the normal Yugi's body can't handle, to counter Yugi's "Mind Shuffle" tactic utilizing his SplitPersonality Dark Yugi. Dark Marik is particularly sadistic when it comes to devising headgames to distract Yugi from the game at hand. The closest he comes to cheating is his Shadow Games though ; the monster attacks ''feel'' real and causes alot of mental turmoil and stress on the opponent duelist. This is ultimately why [[spoiler: Jonouchi lost against him. Despite ''tanking'' the full might of the ''Egyptian God '''The Sun Dragon Ra''''', he was absolutely hit to the brim with fatigue and collapsed from exhaustion before he could call out the attack that would've won him the duel, thus Dark Marik winning by default since his opponent could no longer duel.]]

** Despite being a literal KillerGameMaster who claims victims through games, Dark Bakura's actually very fair about it. He never cheats in any of his Duel Monsters games, and in the two tabletop game arcs he participates in, he explains the rules and gives the heroes a fair chance. In the Shadow RPG, he explains the rules to Dark Yugi and, in the manga, gives Dark Yugi a unique power to use during the game since he as Game Master has one of his own. The only time he cheats is during the Monster World RPG when he starts using magic to rig his dice rolls, which the Shadow Games seem to not consider cheating.
