Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheFrighteners'' gives us OccultDetective Milton Dammers who aggressively harasses protagonist Frank Bannister becauses he's convinced that Frank is responsible for the murders that happen throughout the film. In addition to being this trope, he's also quite the fruitloop.

* Police Inspector Saehara in ''DNAngel'', with a bit of a variation. Dark really ''is'' a thief, he's just got a good reason for it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Oddly enough, Colonel Stryker plays this role in the film. After [[spoiler:Apocalypse took control of Professor X's mind and ordered him to control the nuclear missile controllers and send the missiles into space, Stryker tracks the signal to the X-Mansion and mistakenly believes that Xavier is actually the one who's behind it. So he leads a special forces to raid it and capture some key mutants to interrogate them about Charles' whereabouts.]]

Inspector Javert is the [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned]] law enforcement officer (or detective, or BountyHunter) who honestly (if sometimes wrongly) believes that the hero is a bad guy and doggedly pursues him in a SternChase, seeking to get him.

The Javert does not realize that the hero is either [[ClearMyName wrongly accused]], or has already redeemed himself for crimes done long ago. Perhaps the Javert simply doesn't care, as [[KnightTemplar the law is the law]], and one is either [[BlackAndWhiteMorality on the side of the law, or on the side of crime]]. Thus, the Javert is the type of person who [[LawfulNeutral obeys the letter of the law, but not the spirit of the law]]. Inspector Javert may be the reason the hero has to keep moving among AdventureTowns. Often, the only way to slow him down is to defeat other violent criminals, then leave them for the Inspector to arrest and process before he can resume the chase.

* ''{{Claymore}}'': [[spoiler:Priscilla]] burns for the blood of [[spoiler:Teresa]] for "killing humans". Never mind that the humans were ravaging a village at the time, doing so much damage that [[spoiler:Teresa]] wondered if killing the youma in said village was a good idea, since the bandits stayed away while the youma was there.

* John Mandrake, from ''TheBartimaeusTrilogy'', is a fairly high-ranking government official charged with wiping out the Resistance.
