* Genocider Syo from VisualNovel/DanganRonpa is apparently well-known enough in universe that they're one of the first suggestions when the students are speculating on the identity of the mastermind who locked them in the school. Syo is rumoured to have killed thousands of young men, writing "BLOODSTAIN FEVER" on the wall of each scene in the victim's blood and crucifying them with hand-made scissors. When a student turns up crucified in the locker room, with the aforementioned message, it becomes clear Syo is indeed among them. [[spoiler: Except that Syo, who is Fukawa's SplitPersonality, [[NotMeThisTime didn't kill Chihiro]]; Togami strung the body up to resemble her MO in order to make the trial more interesting.]] Syo is a Hedonistic type, [[spoiler: as all the boys she's killed were Fukawa's crushes]], and is therefore fairly safe to be around during the DeadlyGame, as killing in any way other than their usual MO would be boring, and if anyone else turned up crucified everyone would immediately know it was Syo.
** Played with in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''. Early into the game, the same set-up that Genocider Syo has is run though again, with the killer and her MO being introduced, and then a character being killed with the serial killer's calling card left nearby. [[spoiler: It turns out to be a ruse, as the killer is trying to get somebody else out of the game through a perceived loophole in the rules, and pretends to be the aforementioned serial killer to get everyone to vote for her quickly without thinking too hard about the circumstances surrounding the murder.]]

** Chapter 3 of ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' reveals [[spoiler:the rather threatening-looking Korekiyo Shinguuji is one of these (early on in the game, he even admits that he has the appearance of a potential murderer). In a similar case to Genocider Syo, all of his victims are women, meant to become friends with his deceased older sister in the afterlife. He almost reaches triple digits, with the deaths of Angie and Tenko bringing him closer to his goal, and before he is executed, his only regret is not reaching this goal.]]

** Dentist! Dr. Dave - cuddly older fellow, does dental work for the un-insured, eats lunch in the same little diner for forty years, loves his wife and (grown) kids, and callously murders young women and drops their bodies in places with high crime rates. And gets away with it for years. And when caught, calmly refuses to identify bodies because he simply doesn't care about the victims' families. Beyond creepy.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' the Vigilante class is well suited to this. Their dual identity defeats efforts to find the killer through scrying, and emphasize deflecting suspicion by being a well-respected member of the community, while secretly specializing in attacking from stealth and downing a single target swiftly. They have three archetypes that are even better suited to the role: the Cabalist, who's associated with dark magic and blood sacrifice, the Hangman, who specializes in choking people to death, and...[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Serial Killer]]. The other two are [[DarkIsNotEvil sinister but can be heroic]] (the Hangman's description suggests it's executing condemned criminals who escaped justice), but the last has to be evil. It leaves a CallingCard, and murders so brutally it gives those who inspect the body nightmares.
