* The narrator of ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'' describes [[VampireHunter Vampire Hunters]] as this, even making a direct comparison to Dexter.

* Both Shiki and Fujino in ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai''. This is part of the reason why the part of the story where they fight is the only one where both agonists get out okay, more-or-less. (Well, that and the one where the antagonist has MindControl to stop Shiki from attacking him...)

Added DiffLines:

* InUniverse example in ''Series/AshVsEvilDead''. [[Franchise/EvilDead Ashley Williams]] has gained quite the reputation as a SerialKiller who leaves bodies dismembered and blasted beyond recognition, all of which is true...except for the fact the people he kills are [[DemonicPossession people or corpses possessed by the]] UltimateEvil that gleefully slaughter anyone who gets in their way ForTheEvulz. Ash himself lacks any traits of a SerialKiller, however, and is more of a CrazyAwesome DirtyOldMan. {{Lampshaded}} in the aptly-named "Killer of Killers".
-->'''Ash''': (having just killed a Deadite in front of the cop convinced he was a murderer) I told you: I kill killers.

* Scar of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is pretty much this, except replace "serial killer" with "usually unrepentant war criminal." Indeed, he assassinates his targets using the same power that they use to commit their war crimes.

* A new generation of Assassins in the ''{{Discworld}}'' of Creator/AAPessimal think like this. They are not evil or psychopathic and in many respects are well-adjusted rational people - well, ladies. But this group of Assassins have decided on what they call Ethical Assassination. They still want the money and the contract fees and they respect the rules. Especially the Guild maxim of ''nil mortifi sine lucre''. But they exploit the latitude offered by being able to pick and choose their contacts, and only choose clients whose passing will make the Disc a little bit cleaner. One informal "firm" is dubbed ''The Marriage Guidance Counsellors'', for instance: whatever the reason might officially be, these Lady Assassins choose only men with a reputation for things like wife-beating, rape, child abuse. Then deal with it decisively. A [[LittleMissBadass younger]] [[BadassIsraeli Cenotian]] Assassin takes pleasure in targeting people who get anti-Cenotic. This adds retribution and job satisfaction to her contract fee.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters'': Sin-Eaters mainly focus on dealing with ghosts and helping them move to the afterlife, which in the case of ghosts born from a violent death often means avenging them by finding the one responsible for their murder. ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' supplement ''Mortal Remains'' mentions that [[SlasherMovie Slashers]] usually are ''[[HorrifyingTheHorror terrified]]'' by Sin-Eaters because of this.

* Sinéad Harkin and the servants of Mother Maiden in ''ComicBook/TheUnforgiving'' (the base for WithinTemptation's album of the same name) are very much this.
