* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', [[ProfessionalKiller Hasan]] enjoys competing and chellanges, and it has the added bonus of keeping him fit for his job. He lugs a Vegan-made wrestling robot with him on the trip and wrestles it daily, and when challenged to a duel, he chooses slingshots because it's more of a competition than just gunning each other down.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Joey/Jounouchi is much like this, especially later in the show. After losing the unofficial duel for third place against Kaiba in Battle City he is exuberant about the challenge Kaiba gave him, and when Kaiba derides this attitude in contempt, he asks, mystified, why the hell Kaiba even duels if not for fun.

** ComicBook/TheRiddler is a partial example; he lives for the mental challenge of his and Batman's battle of wits, but he also hates to lose. TheJoker is a better example, and is one of the few examples of this kind of character who is also actively cruel.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'':
** Captain Kenpachi is one of the strongest people around, but loves fighting so much that he deliberately weakens himself in order to have a more even match. He does this even against an opponent that is trying seriously to kill him. His techniques include an [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]] that drains his energy, bells that make it harder for him to do a sneak attack, and deliberately wielding his [[OneHandedZweihander two-handed sword with one hand]].
** Aizen, after absorbing the Hougyoku and achieving godlike power, takes his time setting about the end of the world in case someone comes along who can present a decent challenge. He intentionally destroys the Cleaner in the [[VoidBetweenTheWorlds Precipice World]], knowing that Ichigo can then use the Precipice World's YearInsideHourOutside effect for some last-minute training to unlock his strongest technique. In this case, Aizen probably wasn't looking for a real challenge, just someone to test his power on who wouldn't die instantly.

A character who lives for a challenge. It doesn't matter where they are or what lies at stake, what they really love is the battle, the challenge of going against someone who is a WorthyOpponent, no matter what the venue or the game is. Usually they hold no grudges, and have no one they'd consider their enemy (their [[TheRival rivals]], on the other hand...). Instead, they have those whom they relish challenging again and again, so that they can enjoy themselves.

* ''Anime/VariableGeo'': Yuka Takeuchi has been a practictioner of [[SupernaturalMartialArts Kyokushin Karate]] since childhood and firmly believes that bonds can be formed through competition [[WorthyOpponent with strong opponents.]] Her fighting style has even evolved to center around this concept, by quite literally allowing her to [[WarriorTherapist empathize with her opponents through combat]] and [[HeartIaAnAwesomePower purge them of any negative emotions]] with her [[LimitBreak ultimate attack]]: [[KameHameHadoken Kyuukyo Kikou Dan.]]

*''[[VideoGame/AdvancedVariableGeo Advanced V.G.]]'' has several among itsmain cast, with Yuka Takeuchi being the primary example:
**Yuka is often considered to be Ryu's DistaffCounterpart. She has the same mentality - caring only for testing herself against [[WorthyOpponent worthy opponents]] in order to learn more about herself as a martial artist. Which has rubbed off on several of her friends.
**Satomi grew up together with Yuka and trained alongside her at the Kyokushin Dojo, so she's been sparring with her since childhood. Though lately, she hasn't had the time, due to having to support herself and her brother.
**Tamao Mitsurugi is [[{{fangirl}} a huge fan of Yuka's]] and sees her as a role model. Therefore, she's chosen to emulate her; including Yuka's fighting style and refers to her as "sempai" (or "Yuka-sempai"). So she entered the tournament, not to win, but to finally meet her heroine.
