** One notable point of this trope is how people used to see things in black and white get confused with Tommy's stance on the job. It's one of the things that makes his relationship with Tiegel (who is a cop) complicated.
-->'''Tiegel:''' How do you do it? How do you commit murder for money, and still manage to come across as a nice guy?\\
'''Tommy:''' I dunno, I... It ain't like there's some kinda rulebook that goes with the job, says you gotta behave like a piece of crap all the time just 'cause of what you do. What can I tell you, Tiegel. I'm nice to the folks I like. [...] Look, yeah, I kill people. Bad people. It ain't like I'm sneakin' up behind union guys with a thirty-eight, or whackin' some poor bastard who can't make the payments. I ain't trynna excuse what I do, you know? But Jesus, I ain't apologizin' for it, neither...

* Desta T'Res of CerberusDailyNews is a rather open version of this. She only kills people she thinks deserve to die, generally murderers and slavers. Her employers are generally aware of this.

* 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.''
