* In the ''{{Nightside}}'' novels by Creator/SimonRGreen there is a character who is called "The Collector." He has unique items from the past, the future, and alternate time-lines. He is also fairly paranoid about other collectors stealing from his collection. He once went so far as to store his collection ''on the Moon.'' Didn't stop [[FirstPersonSmartass John]] [[HalfHumanHybrid Taylor]] from accessing it, though.

* Mikogami Hayato from ''{{Sekirei}}'', who aggressively pursues any Sekirei that [[StalkerWithACrush catches his fancy]] in an effort to grow his collection. His behavior is very much like a Pokemon master, even declaring that he wants one because it's a [[ShoutOut rare fire-type]]!

* In what may be the strangest example ever, RingoStarr from the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/TheBeatles''. In the episode "Ticket to Ride", the others are revealing their hobbies (painting, science, etc.), and it turns out that Ringo likes to kidnap women and ''put them in bird cages'' ("bird" being Liverpool slang for "girl"). Fortunately, he's really bad at it; he's only managed to trap one girl, and she escapes during the course of the episode.

* Safari Joe in the original ''WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}}'' was a guy who was the equivalent of an EgomaniacHunter for such a setting, and as racist as any example of that Trope. Deciding to try to hunt the Thundercats simply for the thrill, he didn't even see them as sentient, even when they spoke to them. (Or if he did, he just didn't care.) What made him dangerous was that he was DangerouslyGenreSavvy, and had a robotic assistant named Mule who could analyze his prey beforehand and figure out the best way to prepare. Unfortunately for him, Lion-O was too hard to analyze, and the villain found himself seriously OutGambitted against him.
