** House Bolton starts out as the Stark family's own PsychoForHire bannermen, which is somewhat interesting as the Starks are generally good guys and the Boltons are now considered the TokenEvilTeammate of the North. [[spoiler:The Boltons betray them at the Red Wedding, and now Roose Bolton is Warden of the North.]]

* The Comedian of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' was this to a certain extent, suggested to have merely become a masked vigilante for a reason to kill people. Despite most of his comrades recognizing this he appears to have impressed part of the mindset that led him to such actions onto every one of them, with varying reactions. He becomes a more classic example, or so it's implied, after the very government that claims vigilantes are dangerous hires him as a political assassin.

He knew damn well he'd passed any sane person's MoralEventHorizon and didn't give a damn.

* Lono from ''ComicBook/OneHundredBullets''. He is good to send a message or makes things look like a random agression.

** Biggest example is ''Lobo'', a DC parody of {{Nineties Anti Hero}}es whose favorite sport is to kill (see the quote on SociopathicHero).
** It's been shown that even hiring Lobo is dangerous. Having killed, and generally destroyed the planet of, most people who've ever hired him. Most recently he was tasked by a god with tracking down the one weapon that could kill said god, and returning with it. Upon completing his mission, Lobo immediately killed him with it. He really should have seen that coming.
*** On the flip side, Lobo always keeps his word, and completes the contract to the letter. Meaning that if the contract had said 'not kill me with the weapon', Lobo would have left him alive. But you have to be careful with the words, as shown when he was forced to bring a certain person to Vril Dox only to discover it was his fourth grade teacher, the one person he wanted dead above everyone in the universe: Lobo brought her to Vril Dox alive (and legless), but as soon Vril Dox said she was in his care Lobo killed her, as Dox had said nothing on leaving her alive ''after'' completing the job. Bear in mind that Vril Dox is just about the only person in the universe who Lobo will listen to.

** The Kingpin also once hired ''two'' psychopaths to draw out Daredevil and hopefully kill him at once: Nuke, a SuperSoldier driven insane from years of harsh experminents and being pumped full of drugs, and a killer in a Daredevil costume. Nuke was to drop into Manhattan and just start firing his [[{{BFG}} huge gun]] [[ICallItVera Betsy]], and the other one was supposed to kill Matt Murdock's friends dressed as Daredevil, framing him for the crime.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Judge Death was originally one of these when he signed up for his AlternateUniverse's equivalent of the Judges so he could make a living out of killing people. This is eventually subverted when he made himself Chief Judge by [[TheStarscream killing his predecessor]], as he considers life in general to be a crime and is thus obsessive in [[OmnicidalManiac exterminating all of it]].

* Although all of the characters are assassins in ''NoMoreHeroes'', most of them seem to be SORT OF stable... except for Destroyman, who cosplays as a superhero when he kills people, and Bad Girl is, as Travis describes, "not an assassin," but "a perverted killing maniac."

* Due of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', who performs her assassination duties with a [[SlasherSmile big smile]] on her face. [[SmugSnake Quattro]] mentions [[ComicBookAdaptation in the supplementary manga]] that she wants to be just like her.
