* ''VisualNovel/JakeHunter'' 's titualr character is the splitting image of this trope. He left the police to become a private eye (While still having friends in Aspicio police force such as his best friend Scott Kingsley, Samantha Martin and Detective Luis) he lives on scoth and cigarettes, can take a beating as well as dish one out. He isn't good at comforting people or kids, but he has a soft spot yet full of regret at the same time.

See also: PrivateDetective, AmateurSleuth, FilmNoir and FantasticNoir. Contrast with GreatDetective, KidDetective, and LittleOldLadyInvestigates. If the character simply provides first-person narration the way detectives in FilmNoir often do, that's PrivateEyeMonologue.
