* Bronn is a ''working-class'' killer in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Those who know him well consider him ''far'' more valuable than a blunt instrument like [[BloodKnight Gregor]] [[PsychoForHire Clegane]] - he's not just a damn good fighter who stays bought, he's cunning enough to see [[CuttingTheKnot obvious-in-hindsight]] solutions, willful enough to [[NoHeroToHisValet tell his employer when an order is stupid]], and disciplined enough ''[[ConsummateProfessional not]]'' to butcher bystanders on a whim.
-->One of the reasons that he had valued the Mountain was because Cleagane had never pretended to any illusions of nobility. Tywin had spent decades dealing with Lords and Knights who would do the foulest of acts and then pretend that they were a saintly hero out of a legendary tale.\\
Now, instead of having to deal with all of that horsedung, he had somebody who he could simply toss a bag of coins to and say, "Kill this man."

Bronn is a ''working-class'' killer in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. Those who know him well consider him ''far'' more valuable than sellsword by trade, but also acts as a blunt instrument like [[BloodKnight Gregor]] [[PsychoForHire Clegane]] - he's not hired knife for Tyrion, executing several people whom Tyrion finds bothersome.

* ''{{Trigun}}'':
** It gives us the Eye of Michael, an organization of contract killers who appear to have their corporate origins in some kind of plant-worshiping cult. They fill three slots in the Gung-Ho Guns, something [[BigBad Knives]] doubtless finds very useful since if one of these three is killed the Eye sends in a replacement without his having to go to the trouble of another recruitment drive.
