* The BigBad of ''Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun'' is Francisco Scaramanga, a highly sought-after and ''very'' expensive (one million dollars per victim) assassin who uses a gun loaded with gold-plated bullets to make hits. (He has much bigger plans over the course of the film, however.)

* TabletopGame/{{Rifts}} and several other Palladium Books games have a partial subversion: Special Forces types typically have two options for their variety of close-combat training: "Hand-To-Hand: Assassin" and "Hand-To-Hand: Commando". Assassin is typically only allowed to characters of an outright evil alignment, and offers supreme lethality but no automatic dodge and fewer raw attacks a round.

* From ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', we have the [[HalfHumanHybrid half-demonic]] [[HiredGuns mercenary]] Jared Kincaid, better known as the {{Hellhound}}. He stands out for his practicality: in a world rife with overly dramatic villains, he doesn't care whether his victim dies by knife, sniper bullet, or explosion, as long as the job gets done. He's extremely GenreSavvy about dealing with wizards, too, as evidenced by [[spoiler: Harry hiring to kill him, as he was the only person he could rely on to get the job done]].

* For the [[BadassFamily Zaoldyecks]] from ''HunterXHunter'', assassination is the ''family business.'' Even the [[ViewerGenderConfusion gender-confused]] [[CreepyChild 10-year-old kid]] can kill you. With [[ImprobableWeaponUser confetti]] and a [[PaperFanOfDoom paper fan]], no less. On top of all that, they're badass enough that they can give out ''business cards'' with their phone number and home address on them. Of course, they live in a BigFancyHouse hidden somewhere on their mountain estate (their mountain estate encompassing basically ''the entire mountain''), and anyone who wants to get to them has to first get past the 10-foot-tall [[strike:AngryGuardDog]] automated, dog-shaped killing machine, ''and'' a small army of {{battle butler}}s, an [[CuteBruiser apprentice]] of which once singlehandedly took down a group of 100 {{bounty hunter}}s with ease. Yeah....

* ''Series/TheWire'': Brother Mouzone is a particularly dangerous hitman on loan from New York. As few seasons later, Chris Partlow is Marlo's designated hitman who is so feared that the hoppers tell ghost stories about him. Snoop is his sidekick.
* ''Series/BurnNotice'' has had its share of both, but the ''recurring'' one is Larry ([[RunningGag yes, dead Larry]]).

* ''Series/TheWire'': ''Series/TheWire'' has quite a few, since it deals with the various drug empires operating in the city of Baltimore. Standouts include:
** In the first season, the Barksdale empire frequently and violently expands by either driving off other dealers by force or killing them outright. This is possible due to them having a number of talented and ruthless hitmen working for them. The most noteworthy by far is Wee-bey Brice, a [[StreetSmart street savvy]] and ruthless (but surprisingly [[BoisterousBruiser fun loving]] and [[AffablyEvil personable]]) killer who has been "soldiering" for BigBad Avon Barksdale for close to twenty years.
** The second season introduces
Brother Mouzone is Mouzone, a particularly dangerous hitman HolyHitman with a [[TheDreaded fearsome reputation]] on loan from New York. As Drug kingpins effectively consider him a OneManArmy, and his mere presence immediately makes several powerful drug gangs halt their plans.

* ''Series/BurnNotice'' has had its share of both, but the ''recurring'' one is Larry ([[RunningGag yes, dead Larry]]). Larry used to be in the US Special Forces and later was Michael's EvilMentor when Michael first joined the CIA. When Larry decided it was time to stop working for Uncle Sam, he [[FakingTheDead faked his death]] and [[FromCamouflageToCriminal put the skills he'd learned over the years to work as an assassin for hire]].
