* Detective Harvey Bullock of ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' (to a lesser extent in the latter). Justified because Batman is a vigilante, but Batman is oftentimes shown to be the only one that can take down the Villain-Of-The-Issue/Arc. ''Batman'' himself can sometimes fall into this, willing to chase down whichever criminal he's after (no matter [[JustifiedCriminal how justified]]) to the literal ends of the Earth (and only getting more dogged if the criminal manages to avoid him ''even once'', even to the point [[LetsYouAndHimFight that he's willing to go to war with other heroes, if they get in the way... heck, even other heroes are not exempt from him applying this Trope to them]], DependingOnTheWriter).

to:
%%%* * Officer Natsuko in ''ReCuteyHoney''. %%%* ''ReCuteyHoney'', [[CharacterDevelopment at least]] [[HoYay at first]]. Honey is the only one that can fight Panther Claw, but she ''is'' acting outside the law (and her constant ClothingDamage from battles also paint her as an exhibitionist), so Nat-Chan is determined to arrest her. * Detective Angelica Burns, ''CoyoteRagtimeShow''.''CoyoteRagtimeShow''. In her defense, Mister ''is'' a legendary criminal mastermind and one of her only leads to find the MacGuffin treasure (which was the loot of the theft of ''the biggest multi-planetary bank around'') and taking down the BigBad. However, Mister is (at his worst) an AntiVillain GentlemanThief (with ''much'' higher standards than the Madame and her "children"), and so Burns' drive to capture Mister looks a bit misplaced.

* ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'': Thomson and Thompson in ''Recap/TintinCigarsOfThePharaoh'' and ''Recap/TintinTheBlackIsland'', though they're more of a parody of the trope. They're more {{Punch Clock Villain}}s in ''Recap/TintinTheBlueLotus'', and they get better in the later albums however, where they are, if still incompetent, at least trying to help Tintin.

* The Vogons from ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' are so bueracratic that they stop at nothing to finish the demolition of Earth, to the point where they [[spoiler: manage to destroy every single version of the Earth in every reality and timeline, along with the main protagonists.]] All that just so they can put a tick in the box.

* ''Film/ShortCircuit'': Captain Schroeder stops at nothing to capture and destroy a rogue piece of military equipment armed with a laser capable of blowing up a tank. [[DesignatedVillain But since Number Five "is alive" this makes him the bad guy.]] [[WordOfGod Even the creators admit]] [[StrawmanHasAPoint that Schroder was doing the right thing.]]

* Michael [=McKeane=] as the INS officer from ''Film/{{Coneheads}}'' is so determined to capture the Coneheads he grabs onto their car with his assistant in tow. [[spoiler:As said car is being lifted up by the mother ship. [[SaveTheVillain Beldar bring him back to Earth in exchange for a green card.]] ]]

* ''SonicTheHedgehog'': %%%** ''Sonic The Hedgehog 3'': Knuckles in his original appearance. ** ''ShadowTheHedgehog'': The G.U.N Commander, who wanted Shadow captured, dead or alive. ** ''Sonic 2006'': Played straight with Silver, thinking Sonic was the Iblis Trigger. [[spoiler: He's actually right, [[OurHeroIsDead but not in the way he predicted]]]].

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Old Stone Face can go here. Oh how he can go here.
to:
* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Old Stone Face can go here. Oh how he can go here. Dredd is extremely rigid in his application of the law, so he'll chase after people no matter how small the crime. Played with in that he's not completely unreasonable though, as he has (occasionally, and on a good day) been shown to use his judgment to go easy on people because of special circumstances.

* When it comes to hunting down the ''ComicBook/IncredibleHulk'', General Ross slides among three tropes: this, GeneralRipper, and KnightTemplar. HeWhoFightsMonsters comes into play [[spoiler: as in his pursuit of destroying the Hulk he himself becomes the RedHulk]].

* After ''TheDarkPhoenixSaga,'' and Jean's HeroicSacrifice and subsequent return, some elements of the Shi'ar don't know, or at least don't believe, what we know about her: ContinuitySnarl affects the details, but ''basically,'' Dark Phoenix wasn't all Jean and was definitely under MoreThanMindControl which Mastermind and Emma Frost had been working on her for ''months.'' Jean Grey didn't wake up one morning and decide it might be amusing to wipe out the five billion inhabitants of the planet D'Bari, and does not normally have the power to do such a thing if she ''did'' want to; it was the perfect storm of circumstances that cannot be replicated. But to this day, they pursue her and other relatives of hers, fearing the return of Dark Phoenix. Worse, most of their actions are the sort of thing that would make Jean ''decide'' to go kick their asses if she ''did'' ever return to that power level. It's BullyingADragon to the extreme: "There's this woman we fear is a cosmic destroyer, ComicBook/{{Galactus}} squared in terms of power and can never die, but who made a HeroicSacrifice to stop herself, and has been nothing but heroic ever since her return. I know! Let's ''target her whole family for death'' on the off-chance that one could ''potentially'' become a Phoenix host!" They top themselves when they go after a time displaced teenage Jean Grey and put her on trial for crimes she ''hasn't even committed (yet)''. J'son of Spartax [[{{Jerkass}} of all people]] [[JerkassHasAPoint is the one who calls out Gladiator on his blatantly unfair treatment of her during the trial]]. Not because he gives a damn about her of course, but because he wants to make the Shi'ar look bad. Then again, it's to say they didn't deserve it.
