* The contract killer Blackbird in ''Film/{{Killshot}}'' has a policy of killing anyone who sees his face during his kills. This comes back to bite him when he is hired by the mafia to kill an old criminal but goes off-plan by also killing the girl who let him in and could identify him. The pissed off mob boss puts a prize on Blackbird's head because the girl was his mistress.

* In the novelization of ''Literature/RevengeOfTheSith'', when Bail Organa witnesses the clone troopers kill a Padawan on the Jedi Temple landing deck, they try to kill him too, and he barely escapes. This is in contrast to the film, where they let him go without much of a fuss.



* In the ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' episode "Ariel", the blue-gloved operatives come to pick up River and Simon from the Alliance police who've arrested them. When the lead policemen mentions that they'd talked to the prisoners, the operatives kill every policeman involved in the arrest in the loudest and most gruesome way possible, which actually [[NiceJobFixingItVillain helps the prisoners escape]].
