* ''Manga/SaintSeiya'' has Saga, whose assassins should be ''overkill'' against the expected opposition and dramatically raises the stakes every time the previous attempt fails. The only reason he fails is that the heroes are lucky enough that something always distracts his envoys long enough for them to turn the tables...
** {{Deconstructed}} in the anime with Phaeton: having been ordered to recover the helm of the Gold Cloth and kill Saori's Saints and having every resource of the Sanctuary but the Gold Saints at his disposal, he sends in Lizard Misty, [[PersonOfMassDestruction the strongest of the Silver Saints]] after Shaina [[TheAce who was never even touched in battle]]... And when Seiya ''barely'' comes out on top and kills him he's suddenly without his best resource, with Shaina not being really trustworthy due being AxCrazy.

* Beerus, God of Destruction of 7th universe. Though he likes to fight, when Zamasu tried to kill Goku, Beerus swiftly obliterated him. That attack rendered Zamasu DeaderThanDead.

** Android 17 during the Tournament of Power. When Brianne de Chateau and co. try to transform into their MagicalGirl alter-egos, he simply blasts them stupid before they can finish. It takes Brianne, Goku, and Toppo to browbeat him into letting it happen.

* ''Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge'' has [[BadassGrandpa Sledge]]. As a BountyHunter, Sledge is used to being as brutal and direct as possible.
* [[HeroAntagonist Roxanne Ford]] from ''Series/Empire'. She really wants Lucious to go down and is willing to stoop to unimaginable lows to accomplish this.

* [[BigBad The Major]] from ''Anime/Hellsing''. When talking to [[TheBrute Zorin Blitz]] about her mission of observing the Hellsing manor until he arrives, he describes [[BadassNormal Integra]] & [[CuteMonsterGirl Seras]] as imperfect, inexperienced and untested. To him, they deserve the same scrutiny and caution as facing [[TheJuggernaut Alucard]].

* ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' has [[EvilutionaryBiologist Mesogog]]. Mesogog NEVER engages in comedic antics, always advocates the most direct plans to victory and doesn't gloat.
* ''Series/PowerRangersMegaforce'' has [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking Emperor Mavro]], who goes straight for a planetary invasion and beats down the rangers at every opportunity he can.

** [[HandicappedBadass Tempest]] [[TheDragon Shadow]] from the movie. She wastes absolutely zero time with malicious gloating or silly banter, in stark contrast to most other My Little Pony villains, best shown when she leads the invasion of Canterlot.
--> Tempest Shadow: How about we start with your complete and total surrender?

** Mario and Luigi. Their standard response to facing Bowser is to throw him into a pool of lava. ''This outright kills Bowser.'' Luckily for the Koopa King, DeathIsCheap applies to both sides in the Mario 'verse. Luigi might actually be worse: technically, in ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion'', his entire goal is to subject a mansion full of ghosts to a FateWorseThanDeath. [[BerserkButton Do not kidnap Mario, it ends up much worse for you than kidnapping Peach.]]

Essentially, the character outright refuses to carry either the [[HeroBall Hero]] (ThingsIWillDoIfIAmEverTheHero) or VillainBall (EvilOverlordList); HollywoodTactics and the IdiotBall are also out of the question. The individual may be a CombatPragmatist, GenreSavvy, StreetSmart or simply very practical, and will neither delay nor take unnecessary chances when his/her 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?" Also a good idea to make sure this nemesis isn't around during your TransformationSequence.

* In ''Manga/BoboboboBobobo'', the biggest enemy to a Hajike/Wiggin' Specialist is one who identifies themself as a Legendary Idiot/Joke Killer. They have extreme prejudice towards anything considered nonsensical or silly, and destroy anyone who so much as cracks a joke. If they so much as sense the slightest bit of idiocy or ridiculousness from someone, they'll attack them with full force.

** Crocodile in doesn't usually mess around, unless he's absolutely sure he can do so and has the time for a minor distraction. When he first fought Luffy, Crocodile gave him a few minutes to attack pointlessly, then promptly kicked his ass. Subsequent fights are similar.
** Mr.1/Daz Bones, who ranks just below Crocodile, fits the trope even better.
** Hawkeye Mihawk. One of the only two people in the series who doesn't call their attacks and most of his battles end in one strike. He rarely stops to chat or brag, choosing only to speak after his opponent is defeated or too weak to do anything against him.

He also avoids carrying the Villain Ball during a battle with some mercenaries; when they drank some water that would [[DeadlyUpgrade enhance their strength but kill them in a few minutes]], Crocodile just flew to the top of a palace and waited for them to keel over.

The one time he does get especially chatty was to Zoro during their first encounter, but that's only because the difference in their skill was so obvious that Zoro couldn't so much as hit Mihawk. (That, and Mihawk [[WorthyOpponent admired Zoro's resolve]]).



** Fujitora has also shown himself to have these qualities. Like Akainu, he doesn't fuck around and will pull out all the stops right off the bat to finish his fights as quickly as possible. Unlike Akainu, he tries to limit casualties as much as possible and goes out of his way to make sure that any collateral damage is either repaired or fairly compensated.

* ''Film/AustinPowers'': [[OverlordJr Scott Evil]] is outraged by his daddy [[BigBad Dr. Evil]]'s dogged insistence on BondVillainStupidity by [[NoMrBondIExpectYouToDine having dinner]] with his arch-enemy Austin Powers and deciding to place him in an easily escapable DeathTrap. Scott offers to [[StatingTheSimpleSolution just shoot the super-spy]] and be done with it, but Dr. Evil simply ignores him.
-->'''Scott:''' WhyDontYouJustShootHim I got the gun in my room, one shot to his head, bam, dead.

* Neville 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's seen in battle, he literally 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. Neville does not fuck around.

* ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue:'' Diabolico, at least in regards to the [[SixthRanger Titanium Ranger]]. Rather than letting the newest recruit start ploughing through his goons, he curses him with a cobra tattoo that will slowly and painfully work its way up his body, before killing him. It ''almost'' nearly succeeds, too.
