* The Butcher Boy was one of the people-eating giants in Roald Dahl's ''TheBFG''.
* The guerilla 'El Matarife' from the novel ''{{Sharpe}}'s Honour'' - 'The Butcher' (well, The Slaughterman) only in Spanish.
* Geralt of Rivia, TheWitcher, gained the nickname "The Butcher of Blaviken" after his confrontation with a really twisted [[FracturedFairyTale Snow White-expy]]. Whose own nickname was Shrike, appropiately enough.

* Dirk Provin, the protagonist of Jennifer Fallon's ''Second Sons'' trilogy acquired the nickname 'The Butcher of Elcast'. This was the result of being given credit for the Lion of Senet's scheme to pressurize an enemy by executing people at random until the man gave in, and was a case of twisting Dirk's words. The reputation sticks with him and he had at times to take advantage of it, as well as crafting a ruthless persona. He was barely 16 when he acquired the name.

* In ''StarWars'' there is Kardue'sai'Malloc (aka Labria), the Devaronian in the Mos Eisley cantina, who was called the Butcher of Montellian Serat. During the height of the Empire's reign and before the events of ''A New Hope'', Malloc was part of the Devaronian Army and under the command of the Empire. He was ordered to put down a rebellion in the city of Montellian Serat and accomplished this by shelling it until the rebels surrendered. Immediately afterwards, he received orders to take all of his troops and move to intercept more rebels. Unable to process the prisoners, and directly ordered to not leave guards behind, he resorted to what seemed to be his only option--he had his men kill every last one of the seven hundred people. Not long after, he resigned from the military and went into hiding, his war crime earning him the name and a five million credit bounty.
