* In ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack2017'', the cadre of assassins known as the [[AmazonBrigade Daughters of Aku]] were born and raised for exactly one purpose -- hunt down and kill Jack. It's {{Deconstructed|Trope}}, however, as this means that they have no social skills or understanding of the world outside their training whatsoever.

It's {{Deconstructed|Trope}}, however, as this means that they have no social skills or understanding of the world outside their training whatsoever. Since they were also always told to kill Jack and trained relentlessly for agility and physical strength, they also have no teamwork--when together, they all fight like as if they're alone, allowing Jack to use their attacks against each other and even use one Daughter to conceal an attack meant for another.

* In Robert Silverberg's ''Literature/TheAlienYears'', a man is given the responsibility of raising a child to be able to kill the mind-reading aliens who have enslaved the planet. He trains the child to be able to kill anything without a second thought so that the aliens would not be forewarned of his intentions by reading his mind. It doesn't work. That's why the man also raised his own son to ''love'' the aliens, so he could kill them without betraying his intentions.

** Goku himself is an example. The Saiyans sent their infants out to conquer less powerful planets. [[DumbIsGood Goku just took a knock on the head when he was young and lost his Saiyan hostility]].
* Near and Mello from ''Manga/DeathNote'' fall under the "created to destroy specific villains" subtrope. They were raised to compete with each other constantly and serve as L's successor, but [[GenghisGambit ultimately forced to work together to bring down Light]], all according to L's contingency plan.

You're the BigBad and all your {{Evil Plan}}s are thwarted. The hero can take anything you can dish out and then some, the {{Mooks}} cower in the corner whenever he so much as looks at them, and TheDragon is kindly recommending that you run for the hills. Can nobody stop this unstoppable Juggernaut of justice? The answer is no.
