* The Saint of Killers from ''ComicBook/{{Preacher}}'' was this for a while - he hung up his guns and got married. Then she got sick during the winter, and a band of thugs got in his way, preventing him from returning with medicine in time. Then he picked up his guns again to get revenge on the thugs... and things went downhill from there. [[LikeABadassOutOfHell Really far down]].

* The Coyote Kid from ''WelcomeToTranquility'' was a murderous psychopath driven by the spirits of wind, fire, blood and death until he fell in love. The Kid settled down and started a family, which kept the spirits away until the day zombies "farmed" and ate his family and made him watch.
