* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, this is a cultural trait of the Sload, a race of "slugmen" native to the archipelago of Thras to the southwest of Tamriel. The Sload are a race of careful and deliberate [[TheChessmaster Chessmasters]] who are utterly ruthless in the pursuit of their goals, with even ''genocide'' being on the table if it helps them achieve their ends (though a reluctant option after their last major try, in the First Era, backfired ''severely''). Making matters worse, they are naturally skilled at {{necromancy}} and mysticism (especially the [[YourSoulIsMine capturing of souls]]), leading them down some extremely dark paths. While they tend to operate on their own BlueAndOrangeMorality, they are universally seen as AlwaysChaoticEvil by the other races of Tamriel. (Attempting a FinalSolution using a MysticalPlague which killed half the population of Tamriel will tend to cause that...)

** This is also a trait of the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal [[MurderInc organization of assassins]] whose membership mostly takes a [[PsychoForHire sadistic glee]] in killing and who practice a ReligionOfEvil. As long as the [[OneBadMother Night Mother]] orders it, they're being paid, and it doesn't violate one of the [[TheCommandments Five Tenets]], they'll kill just about anyone, regardless of [[WouldHurtAChild age]], [[WouldHitAGirl gender]], or social standing.

** This a trope is part of Sasuke's CharacterDevelopment. His FaceHeelTurn was largely driven by his conclusion that [[PowerOfFriendship the strength of his bonds with his comrades]] was so great, that by breaking them he would become even stronger which will allows him to achieve his goal: kill Itachi. But even after that he continued to have standards not to kill innocent people and was against Orochimaru's, methods even describing them as stupid and selfish. However after his battle with Itachi, he slowly goes more and more insane, and this trope results, though his dedication to Team Taka prevents him from truly becoming this. It is only after he kills Danzo and abandons them that he really becomes TheUnfettered.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': House Lannister tend to be remarkably ruthless in playing the game of thrones. Of particular note is Tywin Lannister. Nothing, not even morality, prevents him from pursuing his goals for his House - except for pragmatic concerns.

** Cersei Lannister is committed to her own power and status above all else, and will go to any lengths necessary to achieve it, regardless of how abhorrent it may be. In season 7, Olenna acknowledges this about her:
--> '''Olenna Tyrell:''' I did unspeakable things to protect my family, or watched them being done on my orders. I never lost a night's sleep over them; they were necessary and whatever I imagined necessary for the safety of House Tyrell, I did. But your sister has done things I wasn't capable of imagining.

# '''Has lost his fetters:''' Maybe he used to be a good man, a kind man, a family man. [[ComicBook/ThePunisher then everyone he loved was murdered]]. Now he just wants revenge. Or just doesn't care. Or, as Janis Joplin put it:

* The eponymous Literature/ThePrinceOfThorns, Jorg Ancrath, will stop at nothing to achieve his goals: Revenge on the man who murdered his mother and brother, and then becoming the emperor of the Broken Empire. He'll kill his men, sacrifice thousands, and [[spoiler:set off a [[LostTechnology nuke]]]] to achieve these goals.
