* [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]] is usually this type of hero, when portraying a Face. The basic characterization of The Rock is that his ego is completely out of control, and this trait remains no matter what "side" he's on. The Rock doesn't care about anything other than himself. The only things that change are whether or not he's willing earn his victory with his own wits and skill or [[EvilIsEasy willing to take cheap and easy path to a championship]], and whether or not he cares about having the crowd on his side. However, both of these methods are also done to satisfy his ego; he does it just to prove he ''can'' do it.

He has also occasionally sided with the villains such as Eggman and Black Doom when he viewed it necessary.

* Spider Jerusalem from ''{{Transmetropolitan}}''. Cynical or not, and crazy though he might be, he's a journalist because he cares about the truth, and a savage beating from people who don't appreciate it won't make him see otherwise. Unscrupulous in that there is ''[[TheUnfettered absolutely nothing]]'' he won't do to get to it, no matter what.

* ''Manga/ViolenceJack'' himself. Although he starts off being somewhere between a Protagonist Villain and a Nominal Hero, as the story progresses he becomes more heroic and the people he kills are always only evil people.

* Mikazuki Augus from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is a ChildSoldier who has no qualm on killing, he does not have the concept of mercy when it comes to [[DoubleTap disposing enemies]] [[KilledMidSentence when they're still speaking]], often [[TheNicknamer gives vulgar nicknames to enemies]] who managed to survive his encounters. And he remains [[TheStoic in an unnervingly calm mood]] all the time. Orga is the only one making sure Mikazuki is a hero, but whenever he enters the battlefield, it's clear the situation can no longer be solved peacefully.
