* Kraven the Hunter, a.k.a. Sergei Kravenoff, is basically made of this and HuntingTheMostDangerousGame. Born in 1917, he started out as a hunter in Kenya, but later enhanced himself with mystic rituals and herbs (supplied by his lover Calypso, a Haitian vodoun priestess) so that he could hunt and kill his prey barehanded. He moved on to hunting humans, before eventually deciding that only super-humans presented a sufficient challenge. Even then, he seems to return to his animal-centered roots, as some of his targets have included Spider-Man, Sabertooth and the Black Panther.

*** In the novel, he's [[JerkassHasAPoint actually consistently right,]] just constantly hamstrung by Hammond. He wanted multiple gas-powered jeeps, wanted to kill and dissect one of each kind of dinosaur so they could be made safe for the tourists - a reasonable request, considering ''the dilophosauri could spit acid'', and requested a large amount of high-caliber weaponry. He got two gas-powered jeeps (the rest were electric), one of which Nedry stole, and was denied most of the weaponry that might have saved lives on the island because Hammond wouldn't allow him anything that might damage his precious dinos; he finally convinced Hammond to let him have a rocket launcher on standby by threatening to blow the whistle on worker deaths that had already taken place before the story even begins, which were covered up as industrial accidents. Luckily, [[spoiler: he's a total badass anyway, and [[KarmicDeath Hammond gets eaten by a bunch of Compys.]] Also, [[DeathByAdaptation unlike in the film]], he survives in the novel.]]

* Played straight in ''WorldOfWarcraft'' with Hemet Nesingwary, an anagram of Ernest Hemingway, who repeatedly asks you to hunt countless animals. He is hated by players for his tedious quests (which are less "hunting" than "ecological disaster") and the whole thing is hilariously subverted in the fact that he's opposed ''personally'' by a faction of [[FriendToAllLivingThings druids]].[[note]]Though the faction of druids are a thinly-veiled TakeThat at PETA, so make of that as you will. During their quest line they also have you brutally kill one of Nesingwary's companions, which in some player's views, arguably makes them worse[[/note]] However by the time of ''Wrath of the Lich King'' his actions are a lot more tolerable.

* Col. John Henry Patterson was a noted hunter of man-eaters, and it was he who hunted down the Tsavo man-eaters, a pair of Tsavo lions which killed and ate between 35 and 135 Indian labourers building the Tsavo railway bridge. The lions of the area had always been especially vicious, and it is believed that the lions acquired their taste for humans from the slaves and travelers who perished in the dangerous river crossing. The vast numbers of defenceless labourers, sitting alone in canvas tents, provided them with a static and weak food source. Patterson eventually had to shoot them nearly 15 times in order to kill them.
