* [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Kusanagi]] ([[ShadowArchetype dark magical doppelganger]] of series protagonist Kyo) isn't evil ''per se'' (although he definitely ''[[AxCrazy looks]]'' the part; in his defense, Chizuru was BrainwashedAndCrazy when she created him), but he's equal parts BloodKnight and ArrogantKungFuGuy and is something of a crass and vulgar loudmouth. In ''2002'', he has a special intro against characters who fight with weapons, such as [[WolverineClaws Choi]], [[EpicFlail Chang]], [[SimpleStaff Billy]], {{Whip|ItGood}}, and [[CombatHandFan Mai]]. This also doubles as a ShoutOut to [[Manga/{{Akira}} a similar line delivered to Tetsuo by Kaneda]], [[ActorAllusion as both Kaneda and Kusanagi are voiced by]] Creator/MitsuoIwata.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': While many lesser villains are cheaters, the various {{Big Bad}}s tend to avoid breaking the rules, since they have to defeat Yugi fairly in order to win the Millennium Puzzle from him. This doesn't stop them from exploiting various gaps in the rules, or from using Shadow magic to gain an advantage of course; 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: Joey lost against him. Despite ''tanking'' the full might of the ''Egyptian God '''Wigned Dragon of 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.]]

* Alphonse Wheeler was a bank robber from the world of ''Literature/DanShambleZombiePI''. Arising as a ghost after his death in prison, he grew frustrated with his immaterial state, and committed another robbery to try to re-capture the thrill of being a GentlemanThief. When even that proved disappointing, Wheeler allowed himself to be incarcerated again ... then broke out of jail ''without'' using his ghostly powers, just to prove he could do so without "cheating".

* In VideoGame/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors, Zero has kidnapped all of the participants to play a DeadlyGame; but their confusion only increases when he appears to be playing the game ''completely fair'', giving them rules to trust in, even helping them through sticking points, and arranging that all of them get a clear opportunity to escape and live. A significant mystery quickly becomes, ''why would anyone do that''?

It goes so far that a significant mystery in the game, and cause of confusion to the characters, is - ''why anyone would do that''.
