* A particularly nasty group of British loyalists during TheTroubles linked to the paramilitary group the Ulster Volunteer Force set about ethnic cleansing of Irish Catholics found in Loyalist areas of Belfast. Known as the Shankhill Butchers, these terrorists lived up to their name by abducting Catholics and then torturing and murdering them in various horrific ways. The people they murdered were just random Catholics with no IRA or INLA associations - they were murdered simply because they were Irish Catholics. and yes, butchering tools were involved.

* Matsu Gohei is given the nickname of "The Butcher" during the Clan Wars in ''Legend of the Burning Sands'' (a spinoff of ''TabletopGame/LegendOfTheFiveRings'') due to his tendency to leave a trail of bodies wherever he goes and his utter devastation of a number of Crane holdings, among them Violence Behind Courtliness City..
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' the Carnifex (Latin for "butcher") is a tank-sized [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranid]] creature, a biological killing machine that looks like a cross between a dinosaur and a beetle, armed with razor-sharp teeth and huge scything talons and protected by a meter-thick carapace. Somewhat subverted, however, in that you're as likely to see a Carnifex hanging in the back blasting enemies with [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything its spasming, quivering gun-organs]] as you are to see one charging madly into combat, [[ScreamingWarrior screaming and bellowing]] and [[FoeTossingCharge tossing foes aside]] or [[TheJuggernaut crushing them under its feet.]]
** In older editions of the background, it was applied to items of wargear used by the [[CombatMedic Apothecaries]] of the [[SpaceMarine Space]] [[SuperSoldier Marines]]: in the earliest fluff, it was a pistol they were issued for performing [[MercyKill Mercy Kill]]s, while in slightly later fluff, it referred to their gauntlet-mounted set of drills, ([[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]) scalpels, probes and syringes, which was used for performing battlefield surgery... and last rites by removing certain parts of the dying Marine's anatomy known as progenoid glands (that particular piece of kit is still there, but it's now called a Reductor).

* 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.
