* In LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Barrayar]]'' books, Aral Vorkosigan earns the name "The Butcher of Komarr" for supposedly having ordered the massacre of two hundred strong Komarran Senate after they surrendered on terms during the Conquest of Komarr. In fact, he had nothing to do with it and it was the sort of military behavior he abhorred. However, he was in charge at the time, so he got blamed despite killing the officer who gave the order on the spot with his bare hands -- plus his political enemies kept saying there had been "secret orders", a rumor he found it impossible to disprove.

* TheDCU has a minor AntiHero, created during the 90s DorkAge, called the Butcher.
* The Rage Entity of TheDCU is also named Butcher. As if being the giant bull-like embodiment of UnstoppableRage wasn't obvious enough.
* Billy Butcher, who almost everyone just calls "Butcher", of ''Comicbook/TheBoys''. He's a violent, scheming, manipulative bastard, and he's one of the good guys... for a very limited defintion of "good".

* Marshal Rodolfo Graziani in ''Lion of the Desert'' (1981) is sent by BenitoMussolini to subjugate a native rebellion in Libya. The rebels are justly concerned over the arrival of the notorious 'Butcher', though in truth Graziani earned this nickname as a result of his activities in Libya, not before he arrived.

* Admiral Kutuzov of ''[[CoDominium The Mote in God's Eye]]'' was called "The Butcher" at least once, just those two words with capitals. His reputation stemmed from sterilizing a rebelling human colony planet (meaning to prevent a greater war).

* Averted in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'', where local butcher Mr. Green is a decent, hardworking, nonviolent man. Also averted in an episode where Arnold and Gerald suspect two other butchers of wanting to hurt Mr. Green when they are only planning a surprise party for him. As Mr. Green says, "Butchers wouldn't hurt a fly," to which one of the other butchers says, "Maybe a cow, but not a fly."
