** 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 play this trope straight, since a large number of side quest involve killing lesser vampires for [[PragmaticVillainy drawing too much mortal attention]] and partly because the [[SupernaturalElite Volkihar vampires]] just plain [[FantasticRacism look down on the thin-bloods]].

This is where you have Group X which is AlwaysChaoticEvil. Then there's Character Y, who somehow has the powers of Group X but has a conscience, often because he or she is a PhlebotinumRebel or a HalfHumanHybrid of WarringNatures. So, Character Y becomes TheHunter, allowing him to use his powers for a good cause. Sometimes, this turns out badly for TheHunter when it is revealed that his targets actually aren't totally evil, and a case of VanHelsingHateCrimes can result.

For [[IHateYouVampireDad some reason]], vampires seem particularly prone to doing this. You will see {{Dhampyr}}s, FriendlyNeighborhoodVampires, and especially {{Vampire Detective|Series}}s engaging in it. Maybe it's because they like to turn their [[TheHunter enemies]] out of spite.

* In ''[[Manga/TokyoGhoul Tokyo Ghoul:re]]'', the protagonists are part of a newly-formed team of artificial [[HalfHumanHybrid One-Eyed Ghouls]] that [[TheHunter CCG]] has created to hunt Ghouls. They clearly think of themselves as still being human, but wield the same abilities as an ordinary Ghoul and are viewed with mistrust by their peers.

* Blunt in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'' believes that the presence of [[GrowBeyondTheirProgramming intelligent robots]] who are able to do everything better than humans will result in humans becoming [[{{Utopia}} relaxed, happy, and safe]]...which, in ''his'' (possibly [[CameBackWrong brain-damaged]]) assessment, is [[StupidFuturePeople a very bad thing]]. Therefore, he belives the intentional release of a last-ditch safeguard program that, essentially, would lobotomise every robot on the planet is the only solution, and when it is barely prevented he goes full-court press to prove that stopping it was a mistake. He fully intended for himself and his co-worker, Edge, to be the last two intelligent robots left, in order to ensure the process took place, at which point [[IMustSelfTerminate they would reactivate their communicators, receive the neural-pruning patch, and join their fellows]]. ([[ComedicSociopath Edge]] was ''not'' thrilled by this idea and just wanted to be [[ItsAllAboutMe the last robot standing]], forever.)
