*** Also, in order to stop the Reckoning and win SBURB, you need the Black King's scepter. The first think Jack does when he has power is [[spoiler: destroy the staff, making it impossible to stop the Reckoning.]]

* Caius Ballad of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' has his moments. When he first meets threats to his mission, he usually just goes for the kill. A notable instance is when Serah outright says "I don't understand," and his response is simply "You don't need do". It's only when his opponent proves their strength in the ensuing battle that he feels like sharing things.

* Jon Irenicus from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II''. When you get your only chance to question him about his plans after he [[spoiler:steals your essence of Bhaal]], he states outright that you're not worth telling anything, given that (he believes) you're going to be dead very soon. And if you try to attack him in Spellhold without getting the other inmates to help you, he just kills you -- not even in a controllable battle, just a cutscene. The only way the player is able to suss out his master plan at ''all'' is because he keeps writing things down in journals for the player to find (though that's justified with [[spoiler: Irenicus suffering from memory loss due to the loss of his soul.]])

* Jon Irenicus from ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II''. When First, when he fights several Shadow Thieves and Cowled Wizards near the beginning of the game, he wastes no time going straight for OneHitKill spells like ''Flesh to Stone'' and ''Disintegrate''. Later, when you get your only chance to question him about his plans after he [[spoiler:steals your essence of Bhaal]], he states outright that you're not worth telling anything, given that (he believes) you're going to be dead very soon.

* The Franchise/{{Terminator}}. There's a lot of crossover with ImplacableMan, but Reese's description sounds a lot like a no-nonsense villain.

** Wrestling/AJStyles: During his 2013 FaceHeelTurn, he declared that he no longer cared about having fun or entertaining the crowd, only about winning to earn money. In his matches, he would try to win as fast as possible, and win, lose, or draw, as soon as the match ended, he would stoically walk to the back.

** Frieza hardly screws around - after realizing [[TheMedic Dende]] has been {{healing|Factor}} the Z warriors all along, the first thing he does after coming out of his final transformation is to [[ShootTheMedicFirst kill him]], leaving the warriors, still without Goku, without a safety net.

Basically, the character refuses to carry the [[HeroBall Hero]] or VillainBall. He may be GenreSavy, StreetSmart or simply very practical, and won't delay or take unnecessary chances when his objective is at hand. For example, the villain really ''does'' think that MurderIsTheBestSolution, and no, they ''aren't'' going to do any EvilGloating or [[JustBetweenYouAndMe exposit on their plan before shooting]], ''[[UnspokenPlanGuarantee thank you very much]].'' An opponent might be confused to the point they outright ask "You're ''really'' going to [[WhyDontYaJustShootHim just]] [[KilledMidSentence shoo]]--" They might try to stall their No-Nonsense Nemesis by offering suggestions like "Wouldn't it be more fun to suspend me above a vat of acid and slowly lower me?"

Added DiffLines:

** Tirek hams it up a little but generally is cold and goal orientated, taking what he wants and moving on with little interest in gloating or boasting. Unlike many of the other villains he's also quite happy to get physical with his opponents, and overwhelming firepower is his ''first'' resort.
