* Vincent plays another evil witch hunter in the 1970 ''Cry of the Banshee''. He's just as much a bastard as his portrayal of Hopkins, and his crimes are horrific enough that the title sidhe is called upon to destroy him and his family, most of whom are just as vicious as him.

* ''Film/{{Warlock}}'': Giles Redferne is a witch hunter transported from the 17th century to kill the evil Warlock who murdered his wife. He's actually a pretty nice guy, going out of his way to save as many innocent bystanders who fall prey to the Warlock as possible. He only has his salt-coated whip, knives, and some limited knowledge of the Warlock's weaknesses to defeat him.

* In ''Film/TheLastWitchHunter'', this is, as you may guess from the title, Kaulder's job, although he's far cry from the KnightTemplar that his kind is stereotyped to be.

* Witch Hunter is a premade character class in both ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''. In their description, it's noted that their purpose is to combat cults and necromancers. In gameplay terms, their skills gravitate towards being a MageMarksman, taking elements from the archer and thief classes and the schools of destruction, conjuration and mysticism.

* Following in the steps of ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and Robert E. Howard, Paizo Publishing's ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' now [[http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/base-classes/inquisitor features an Inquisitor class]]. The iconic Inquisitor could look more like this trope better without a burning heretic at her feet, though in personality and outlook she is a far cry from the stereotyped angry witch hunter and more of a kind-hearted scholar who happens to engage in the grim business of monster-hunting. The Inquistor class even has an archetype (class variant) ''called'' Witch Hunter, who drops some of the Inquisitor's abilities to counter beasts and discerning lies and alignments for abilities aimed at arcane spellcasters.
