* The first thing Necrodeus does in ''VideoGame/KirbyMassAttack'' is, as soon as it sees Kirby, split him into ten and then kill nine of them. It would have killed all of them, had one not escaped. It then put its minions of a very tight watch, so that whenever you travel between game worlds you lose almost all your Kirbys every time. And when Kirby gets to its hideout and finds its staff, which serves as its source of power, it simply eats the thing so Kirby can't get it. Not bad going.
* ''Franchise/BlazBlue'': When Terumi appears in another guise like Hazama, he wants to play with you. When he takes direct control and appears as Terumi, that is when he enters no-nonsense mode. One example is in ''Continuum Shift'' where, having just literally curb-stomped Ragna, he turns and gets back to his current plan of getting Mu-12 to kill the Master Unit. Once Ragna [[ICanStillFight pushes himself up]] and taunts him to get his attention, Terumi starts ''freaking out'' and stamping on Ragna's chest yelling for him to die.
** Ironically, even when Terumi plays with you, that's still him being direct. He has NoOntologicalInertia and needs the hatred of others to survive - if he draws out your suffering, it's to improve his lifespan.

* Golbez in ''FinalFantasyIV'' is perhaps even better. He spends the first part of the game exploiting Baron's Red Wings airship fleet to gather the first two Crystals, as this makes them the dominant power in the world. For the third Crystal, Fabul has been warned by the party and hunkers down to defend, so he takes matters into his own hands, sweeping into the Crystal Chamber, blasting Cecil and his friends away, and then abducting Rosa when she tries to intervene. When he finds out Cecil is trying to become a Paladin, he sends one of his strongest minions to kill him before he can complete the quest, and specifically chooses Scarmiglione for the task because Cecil's dark sword is near-useless against the undead. When that fails he instead manipulates Cecil into getting him the fourth Crystal, offering to release Rosa in exchange; naturally, he pulls ILied once Cecil hands the Crystal over to him, blasts him back, and departs again. In the next confrontation he finally pulls WhyDontYouJustShootHim and attempts to kill Cecil and the party, but is defeated and forced to retreat. He spends the rest of the game behind the scenes, waiting for Cecil to get the fourth Dark Crystal to keep it from him, only for him to take control of Kain's mind and snatch it away. Golbez's only problems were BondVillainStupidity when he would let the heroes live rather than finish them off, but both instances are defensible as it being more pragmatic for him to retreat once he has what he came for (and it's also implied he let Cecil live precisely because he recognized he made a good UnwittingPawn).

* The post-game DLC for ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'' portrays [[spoiler: Red Hood (aka a post HeelFaceTurn Arkham Knight, aka Jason Todd)]] as this, duel-wielding guns and having absolutely no qualms about killing the criminals he pursues, including [[spoiler: throwing Black Mask out of a window to his death.]]

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', there's Capriccio, a Team Cipher Commander (later Admin) who is absolutely ruthless when it comes to get the job done, and if he so much suspects of someone [[spoiler: being his niece or nephew, he'll kill them on the spot, no questions asked.]]

* Neville Longbottom in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. Harry is so intent on nonlethal force that his use of ''Expelliarmus'' (the Disarming Charm) is how the Death Eaters identify him. Voldemort is far too big on gloating and enjoying killing people. Neville's first action in the Battle of Hogwarts is to run to get Mandrakes to throw at the Death Eaters -- Mandrake's cries ''instantly kill everything that hears them.'' The second time he's seen in the battle, he's running around using a ''man-eating plant'' on the Death Eaters. The third time, he bum-rushes Voldemort wielding nothing but Gryffindor's sword and decapitates Nagini before Voldemort can get over his initial shock at the utter stupidity of somebody running head-long into the most powerful dark wizard ever.
