* Creator/JohnWoo's ''Film/TheKiller'', whose title character played by Chow Yun-Fat accidentally blinds a beautiful singer during a hit and sets out to perform one last hit to get the money to have her eyes fixed. He does have a larger heart than usual examples, though.

* This is the entire point of ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith''. Both are assassins (and it really isn't even clear what the goals of the two organizations they work for are), but can be rather decent types when not pursuing a mark. Both of them do seem to try and avoid civilian casualties; John even takes the time to shout warnings and get civilians to run away when he's just ditched a bomb.

* ''Flammen & Citronen'': two Danish hit men for the Resistance during {{UsefulNotes/WWII}} try to carry out the necessary task of eliminating informers without sacrificing their principles. But every day the Gestapo gets a little closer, and every day the Resistance leadership seems to demand more. One day Flammen is shocked to find the name of a certain woman on the hit list...

* SpiderMan has occasionally dealt with a hitman named Chance who will admit to being a murderer for hire, to a point. As he tells the Life Foundation, he does ''not'' work for terrorists. (In fact, many of his hits tend to be other criminals and other [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]].)

* [[spoiler:Wolfwood]] in the ''{{Trigun}}'' manga turns out to be one of these after it's revealed he's an operative from the Eye of Michael assassination outfit. In the anime, he's a more heroic figure, though it's not clear exactly what he was trained for (probably assassination).

* During a period of severe depression, Creator/AngelinaJolie actually tried to hire a hitman to ''kill her.'' He agreed to meet with her in person, and -- calmly and kindly -- [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming was able]] to ''talk her'' ''[[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre out of going through with it.]]''

* ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'' has Nikita, who always carefully reviews the jobs she's offered before accepting them to see if they're not despicable and tries to limit innocent people's involvement unless it's absolutely necessary.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/LogansRun'': The show's version of Logan was more this as compared to his literary counterpart (more of a ConsummateProfessional) or the JerkWithAHeartOfGold as portrayed in the movie. He was already having serious doubts about his profession before the series started, and while he had no problems with lethal force, he was at least willing to investigate the situation first, try a non-lethal approach second, and use lethal force as a last resort.

* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'': Szeth ''hates'' killing, but that is the task that he is best at, and he has countless masters willing to use his powers.
