* In ''WebVideo/SwordArtOnlineAbridged'', the PlayerKilling guild Laughing Coffin shows up to do some contract killings as in the source material, though [[HeroicComedicSociopath Kirito]]'s method of handling the situation is a ''bit'' different - he advises them to drop the [[AsTheGoodBookSays "Bible-quoting serial killer"]] motif they've got going [[DoWrongRight and totally rebrand themselves with a new PR campaign to reach more clients.]] They withdraw to follow his advice, but a later episode reveals that they [[TooDumbToLive had the bright idea to include directions to their exact location in their promotional video.]]

** This is further explored in ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'', in which it's mentioned that the Assassin's Guild does not take contracts on people whose death they feel would be disadvantageous to the stability of Ankh-Mopork (in Vimes' words, "would not only spoil the game but toss the board out the window"). To date, this list contains the current patrician, Vetinari, and the commander of the city watch, Vimes. Both men have proven to be very assassination-resistant anyway: A NoodleIncident is referred to about the last assassin sent after Vimes before the ban; apparently Vimes overpowered him and had him put on a boat headed for [[LandDownUnder XXXX]].
*** Also on the list of "Do not assassinate" is Foul Ol Ron, not because of any sort of importance but rather the opposite: there just wouldn't be any ''point''. (One guild member suggested that the proper fee to inhume Ron would be one groat.)

In various forms of fiction, it is terribly common to have various criminal organizations floating around with a single purpose in life: [[ProfessionalKiller causing death to others]]. In {{Fantasy}}, it is often called [[WeirdTradeUnion The Assassin's Guild]], but it could appear under any number of other names or in any number of settings. Their goals for this vary. It's often simply for money, but it could just be a group that enjoys playing politics. In that case, there's some overlap with the AncientConspiracy, except they're not that old ... and not that big.

** The Kingdom of Letheras has the peculiarly named [[WeirdTradeUnion Rat Catcher's Guild]] which purposes to do just that, catch rats and other vermin. In truth, they act as the unofficial assassins guild, [[ThievesGuild the guild of thieves]], a refugee smuggling ring ''and'' are conveniently contracted by the crown to investigate disappearances.

* The ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' has several:
** The Guild of Assassins in Darujhistan is exactly what it calls itself. They are headed by Guild Mistress Vorcan and organized in internal clans and make it possible for noble families to settle their disputes away from the public eye.
** The Claw doubles as the SecretPolice of the Malazan Empire. They are typically trained from a young age and organized in Hands, which often include assassin mages as well. Any place facing a Malazan conquering army tends to shit its metaphorical pants at even the ''rumor'' of a Claw Hand or two having slipped in to prepare their army's arrival.
** The Talon was the precursor of the Claw, but with less emphasis on the police and more on the secret parts. It was allegedly wiped out by the Claw to secure Empress Laseen's hold on the empire, yet rumors of a few agents still existing and operating tend to have even the Claw scamper in near panic.
