* 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.

What made him dangerous was that he was DangerouslyGenreSavvy, savvy, and had a robotic assistant named Mule who could analyze his prey beforehand and figure out the best way to prepare.

** A lot of medusas have done this too, but many in later editions are [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy much smarter]], avoiding keeping the petrified remains of their victims as trophies; if potential victims come into their lairs and see such things, what's the first assumption they're going to make about who the lair belongs to?

* In the ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers'' episode "Three Men And A Booby" -- stop that snickering, unless it's because of the ''ThreeMenAndABaby'' reference -- an obsessed egg collector collects a booby egg. The mother booby enlists the Rangers' help in reuniting the egg with her. [[spoiler:They end up hatching his entire collection.]]

* The MarvelUniverse has an [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Elder of the Universe]] known as The Collector, whose mania for collecting is so strong it makes him immortal. (Or maybe he took up collecting to keep himself from going mad because he ''was'' immortal. After doing it for billions of years, it's often hard for even him to remember.)

(Or maybe he took up collecting to keep himself from going mad because he ''was'' immortal. After doing it for billions of years, it's often hard for even him to remember.)) He's tried to ''collect'' the Avengers and other heroes more than once, but he's got more than one ArtifactOfDoom in his collection that you wouldn't want anywhere else: he's got better means of protecting them than some entire worlds have, and he's going to keep them just to ''have'' them rather than actually try ''using'' them. There's a reason why in ''ThorTheDarkWorld,'' he's the only one Thor trusts with The Aether.



* Larfleez, the ONLY Orange Lantern in GreenLantern comics has this as his defining character trait. He's powered by greed itself and will not be sated until every single treasure in existence is his.
