** His evil form, on the other hand, is much like Cell. Claims to be looking for a challenge from a strong fighter, but upon getting overpowered immediately freaks out and becomes a sore loser. In his case "strong fighter" apparently means someone he could beat up on for awhile without dying instantly, rather than someone that actually stood a chance at defeating him.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'':
** Quintessential Example: Goku, which extended into ''DragonBallZ''. Most of the other characters love to fight, but not the way Goku does. He's the only one who would resurrect the most evil adversary he's ever known (don't worry, he resurrected him as a good soul) in order to fight him again.

Added DiffLines:

** Light started off as a bored genius. He appreciates being able to engage his full intellect on a problem, and comes to admire L on that level, but actually threaten his position as Kira and he'll kill you as soon as possible.

* SherlockHolmes. When he doesn't have a problem to solve to occupy his mind (or even better, an antagonist to match wits with) he becomes lethargic and turns to drugs. Some adaptations play up this aspect by suggesting Holmes is amoral, uninterested in justice and only cares about crime as an intellectual exercise - which was not the case in the original. Well, particularly the Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce version.

* As much of a {{girly girl}} Wrestling/{{Melina}} is, she equally lives for a fight. In a less positive example, she invites threats and dares opponents to do their worst just so she will have more motivation to kick their asses.

* ''Videogame/FireEmblemFates'' has the ChildProdigy Hayato, an InsufferableGenius spellcaster from the Wind Tribe. While most of the time he pretends to be unaffected and [[TheStoic stoic]] in [[AdorablyPrecociousChild order to seem mature]], he reveals a [[FieryRedhead more excitable and competitive side]] occasionally; in his supports with Orochi, he becomes obsessed with proving himself the better herbalist, and ends up taunting and teasing her when he wins. He seems determined to not be outshone on the battlefield as well, as his [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration personal combat skill]], [[{{Pride}} "Pride,"]] allows him to deal extra damage to units that are higher-leveled than him.

* Signum of ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', though as a [[LadyOfWar knight]], she doesn't let it get ''too'' much in the way of her duty. When she found out that the enemy she had soundly trounced before had gotten a BiggerStick and can match her blow per blow, she reacted with sheer joy, and more than a twinge of regret that she can't let her heart out to play in the battle since she had a goal to achieve.

* The same can could be said for fellow BloodKnight[=/=]SociopathicHero Alucard from ''{{Manga/Hellsing}}'', though he may be in it for [[DeathSeeker different reasons]].

* Shizune Hakamichi of ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' likes to take ''everything'' from schoolwork, to recruiting people for the Student Council, to carrying a box up a hill or deciding what to do with a piece of veal cutlet bread a contest or a game. [[BaseBreaker The fandom is split on whether this makes her charming and endearing or obnoxious and annoying.]]

** A slightly less extreme example is Mamoru, the Star Social Link--a track star who really just likes to test himself. His Social Link concerns how to maintain this in the face of ever-growing family troubles.
