* [[spoiler:Ellie]] in ''Conception2ChildrenOfTheSevenStars'' considers herself one due to being [[spoiler:a Stillblood, which is a being just above the level of a thinking zombie. However, in exchange for being a Stillblood, all of them are forced to carry out secret assassinations for the church to ensure everyone in the world isn't brainwashed or killed.]]
* ''VideoGame/SlashEmExtended'' has hostile demons randomly utter "I AM... I AM A MONSTER! ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... [[JustForFun/PokemonVietnameseCrystal coach.]]", an obvious [[ShoutOut Shout Out]] to [[LetsPlay/DeliciousCinnamon DeliciousCinnamon]]'s playthrough of Pokemon Vietnamese Crystal.
* [[AntiHero Sol Badguy]] in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' ''Xrd'', who calls himself a monster with both meanings. He has vowed to hunt down and slay every [[HumanoidAbomination Gear]] in existence because [[TheAtoner he's ashamed of creating them and the destruction they have brought to the world]], even though he's a Gear himself. When [[TheRival Ky Kiske]] asks him why he cares about Dizzy and Sin (Ky's wife and son, who are both half-Gears), he can't give a straight answer, prompting a little CharacterDevelopment.
* In the extended ending of ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaAriaOfSorrow'', Soma becomes so upset about being Dracula's reincarnation that he starts trying to distance himself from everyone, for fear of hurting them. It's most visible with [[ImpliedLoveInterest Mina]]-- after starting a cryptic conversation about the possibility that he might "become someone else", Soma becomes distressed and runs away mid-sentence, and can't even interact with her after that.

** Strangely, his sour demeanor throughout the first half of ''-SIGN-'' indicates that he's backslid in the StagesOfMonsterGrief; the preceding game, ''[=GG2=]: Overture'' (set a year before ''-SIGN-''), had Sol [[IAmWhatIAm generally acceptant]] of his monstrous nature. Sol's mood [[TookALevelInKindness does]] [[TookALevelInIdealism improve]] as ''-SIGN-'' goes on, which continues into ''-REVELATOR-'', though this is largely owed to [[spoiler:Sol finally learning ''why'' he was converted into a Gear against his will by his former Gear Project colleague and getting the chance to [[BackFromTheDead revive]] [[TheLostLenore his dead girlfriend]]]] as opposed to coping with his existence as a Gear.

* The FBI's trigger man from {{Comicbook/NoHero}} admits this is why he is so good at killing other monsters, growing up with a disgusting serial killer that taught him how to charm his victims and how monsters like him shouldn't be in charge makes him a valuable but dangerous assets. The agents are afraid of what he is gonna do once he is augmented with a PsychoSerum and gruesomely butcher his targets. Thankfully [[spoiler: he simply kills himself after taking out the immortal leader of the Frontline]].
