* 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'': ''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.

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]].

All they have are spies or ex-soldiers who know how to handle firearms. "How do you train people to do a hit anyway? Practice on dogs first, then say, 'See that old guy crossing Dizengoff Street, now you go ahead and shoot him?'"
