* Pops up briefly in ''LostOdyssey'', where one of the Dreams of a Thousand Years concerns a long-dead general who was known simply as 'The Butcher', due to his habit of slaughtering EVERYONE who got in his way - destroying entire villages, leaving no survivors, so as to ensure that there wouldn't be any surviving brothers or sons who would later seek him out for vengeance. Believing in this philosophy, he actually takes pride in his nickname.

-->''"Well, sir," replied the Canadian, whose enthusiasm had somewhat calmed; "it is a terrible spectacle, certainly. [[TheHunter But I am not a butcher. I am a hunter,]] and I call this a butchery."''
-->''"[[TheHunter It is a massacre of mischievous creatures,"]] replied the Captain; "and the Nautilus is not a butcher's knife."''

* Fred Johnson from ''TheExpanse'' is known as The Butcher of Anderson Station for killing everyone aboard because they complained that their low oxygen rations were causing brain damage in their children. Oh and he waited until they tried to surrender to massacre them. [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure You'd never know it from talking to him, though.]] [[spoiler:Turns out he wasn't told that they were surrendering and that lie combined with a major HeelRealization eventually turned him against he old employers.]]

* There was a short-lived ActionAdventure series called ''The Butcher'' about a former hitman fighting the Mafia. The hero's name was actually Bucher, but inevitably he picked up this trope as a moniker.

* From the ''IronKingdoms'' RPG and ''Warmachine'' tabletop strategy game's shared [[TheVerse 'verse]] comes Orsus Zoktavir, the Butcher of Khardov. Complete and utter patriotic nutcase, who got his name when he ordered his men to attack secessionists in a village near the fortress of Boarsgate. The soldiers weren't all too keen to attack unarmed civilians, so he killed them and the locals by himself. [[ICallItVera With an axe he calls Lola.]]

* ''Megalania prisca'', a giant extinct monitor lizard, has a genus name that was at first thought to mean "Giant butcher". However, it turns out that the name actually means "Giant wanderer". Shame, because the former meaning sounds much more fitting for such a {{Badass}} animal.

* If you want to take the "evil path" through ''{{Arcanum}}: Of Steamworks and Magic Obscura'', you have to prove your dedication to the villains' cause by utterly slaughtering the town of Stillwater. Doing this will award you a new karma title, "The Butcher of Stillwater".

* In ''Literature/{{Aeon 14}}'', protagonist Major Tanis Richards is known in Sol as the "Butcher of Toro", but it's indicated early on that it's undeserved. [[spoiler:After leaving Sol on a colony ship, she tells the real story of Toro to her LoveInterest. She was investigating a CultColony, discovered the cult leader had turned everyone on the planet into NighInvulnerable mindless monsters with BioAugmentation, and was forced to order an OrbitalBombardment that destroyed the entire dwarf planet. The circumstances were then covered up for political reasons and she had to take the fall.]]
