* If you want a not-so-sunny example of this trope, look at original-model ComicBook/{{Lobo}}. He hunted down and killed every single member of his own race... for fun.

** The Dragonborn is a mortal with an Aedric dragon soul who fights other Dragons. [[spoiler:The trope is played even straighter in the ''Dragonborn'' DLC, when the Dragonborn is forced into a confrontation with [[EvilCounterpart Miraak]], the First Dragonborn]]. In fact, the Dragonborn's very title reflects this: in Dragon, "Dragonborn" is "Dovahkiin" which, when broken down the way most dragon names are, becomes "Dov Ah Kiin", or "Dragonkind Hunter Born".
** If you choose to side with the Dawnguard vampire hunters against Lord Harkon in the ''Dawnguard'' DLC, Harkon's daughter Serana will join you and eventually be permitted to take up residence in the Dawnguard's headquarters. She ''can'' be convinced to cure herself of vampirism... but only if you say the right things, and only ''after'' Dawnguard's main quest.
** If the Dragonborn is a Vampire or Werewolf, this trope can occasionally come into play. Defied in ''Dawnguard'', as Isran will frequently chastise and refuse to deal with a Vampire Dragonborn until they cure themselves. Ironically, a Dragonborn that sides with the Volkihar vampires can ''also'' play this trope straight, since a large number of side quests involve killing lesser vampires, mostly for [[PragmaticVillainy drawing too much mortal attention to themselves]] and partly because the [[SupernaturalElite Volkihar vampires]] just plain [[FantasticRacism look down on the thin-bloods]].

* {{Kaiju}} seem to hate each other with a passion, needing little reason to fight each other whenever their paths cross, only considering a truce when worse Kaiju like King Ghidorah show up.

** Almost all of the Kamen Riders from the Showa Era (1971-1989) of the franchise are this, as they were cyborg mutants created by the villainous organization, but escaped before the brainwashing could be completed or defected afterwards. Because the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Monsters Of The Week]] are also cyborg mutants, the result is this trope.

** Background material also refers to a vampire by the name of "Enhance", who has sided with the Church and works to annihilate his own kind. Apparently he is a relatively "young" vampire and rejects his monstrous nature, holding onto as much of his humanity as possible.
