* In mid-to-late 1995, as part of plans for a massive overhaul, one of these stalked and killed nearly half of the cast members of the SoapOpera ''Series/{{Loving}}''. Very tellingly, most of the victims were older and/or had been on the show for a long time with no further storyline opportunities. When the killer was revealed, it turned out the demented woman sincerely believed she was doing a good thing, believing that her victims had been in pain and she was in fact performing a MercyKill. The storyline ended with a friend doing this for her.
** Then a year later, another one of these turned up on the SpinOff ''The City''.

* [[spoiler:SHIKI]] in ''{{Tsukihime}}'' in the routes [[spoiler:where he's in control over Roa.]] He doesn't actually enjoy killing and unlike [[spoiler:Satsuki]] he isn't doing it to live. He just doesn't possess the power to stop.

* Murderers of '''[[DisposableSexWorker prostitutes]]''', which is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Most often, a Serial Killer starts with killing a prostitute, and a Serial Killer's victims are likely to be mostly or even only prostitutes (such as UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper, the UrExample of Serial Killers); in fact, it's not uncommon for such a murderer to ''target'' prostitutes, as they believe to be doing a ''favor'' to society by killing them, which makes these killings a type of Mission-Based Serial Killing.

* ''VideoGame/RidesWithStrangers'' has Donald Mcarthur, A.K.A Father Donald. A combination of a sexual sadist and a mission based killer, Donald is a PedophilePriest who has raped, tortured, and killed many people, with little boys being his "passion". To try and suppress his desire to harm children, he murders adult people, primarily heretics due to his religious beliefs. He considers it his mission to purge the world of heretics. Not that he has any qualms about murdering someone who isn't a heretic if he happens upon someone while he feels like killing.

* [[spoiler: Hubert Rejk]] from ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'' definitely qualifies as the mission-based type. He ritualistically tortured and murdered an untold amount of people in the name of the [[CorruptChurch Church of the Eternal Fire]], killing those he viewed as sinners or apostates. [[spoiler: He also happened to be a vampire, but this had nothing to do with his motive.]]

** The plot of the ''Blood and Wine'' expansion revolves around Geralt hunting down a serial killer who appears to be mission-based due to his murders of knights that violated the Five Chivalric Virtues of Toussiant. [[spoiler:In reality, the murders were revenge killings orchestrated by the duchess' sister who tricked her vampire lover into killing the knights as a smokescreen for her plot to [[SiblingMurder murder the duchess]] all because [[DisproportionateRetribution she thought she forgot about her]].

* The ''TotalDramaIsland'' episode 'Hook, Line, and Screamer,' dealt with this: the contestants had to watch a horror movie about a [[OverlyLongGag psycho killer with a chainsaw and a hook]] (the whole thing said every time.) As quoted above, Duncan found it hilarious, until [[spoiler: a real killer confronts Gwen, and everyone rushes to save her. Thankfully, she manages to kick his butt.]]
