* [[TheMafiya Hotel Moscow]] in ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' when Balalaika is called in to consolidate a foothold in Japan through an alliance with a local Yakuza clan (and, like the [[MagnificentBastard Magnificent Bitch]] she is, doing just that... after essentially declaring war on said Yakuza ([[BloodKnight because it was more glorious that way]]) and going on a campaign of military-precise terror so brutal that neither the Yakuza nor ''the police'' can think of how to react).

* On ''Film/JackReacher'', The Zec and his crew are very much this. What they cannot control, they kill, and what they ''do'' control is strong-armed into obeying by making sure they understand that the option is simple: be a puppet or die horribly.

* Played straight at the start of ''Series/BreakingBad'', in which the Mexican cartels are much more organised and ruthless than the rather chaotic American gangs. And then {{inverted}} in the last season, when the all-American [[NeoNazi Aryan Brotherhood]] prove to be even more ruthless and psychotic than the Mexicans.

* The plot of ''[[Film/{{SWAT}} S.W.A.T.]]'' revolves around a French mob boss, who flies in and kills an underling, before being pulled over for a broken taillight and discovered to be wanted by Interpol. He then publicly announces that he'll pay millions to anyone, who frees him from police custody, starting a war on the streets. When talking to his lawyer, he asks who they can pay off to get him released. When his lawyer tells him that it's not that simple, he then angrily asks who they can kill to achieve the same result.

* The French gang boss in ''Film/BadBoys'' whose plan seems to revolve around killing every single person he comes into contact with.
* ''Film/BadBoys2'' has a Cuban drug lord, who will kill his own cousin without hesitation for failure and his idea of "negotiating" with TheMafiya is to kill one of the Russians that came to his house, cut him to pieces and stuff him in a tortilla container, show the pieces to the other Russian (who is the dead guy's cousin, by the way) and threaten the man's family for good measure.

* ''Film/RockNRolla'': Although the quote above is [[LondonGangster Lenny]] giving what he thinks is a BadassBoast, he ends up learning the hard way (as in getting his legs smashed up hard enough to end up wheelchair-bound for life and having to drag himself all the way from the 18th hole of a golf course to the visitor's centre to add insult to injury) that you ''do not'' fuck with TheMafiya.
