* In contrast with ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'', in ''Manga/{{Karin}}'', vampires usually only take enough blood to make the person feel anemic and drained of emotion (which can actually be a ''good'' thing, if a person has a lot of negative emotions). So it's not surprising that Vampire Hunters are portrayed as {{Knight Templar}}S.

** The Silver Hand, a group that hunts werewolves. It wouldn't be a problem... except they don't make any distinction between werewolves who are a problem and those who just want to live (such as [[spoiler:the inner circle of the Companions]]). If that weren't enough, a tour of some of their bases indicates that, when they have a chance, they'll capture a werewolf, torture it to death, and dismember the corpse in order to get every advantage they can against the enemy.
*** Of course they are also hostile to the player even if they aren't a werewolf, so its likely they are just another group of bandits who happen to focus on werewolves.
*** You can also find Khajiit in some of the cells. While it's possible the Khajiit were werewolves (their love for hunting making them prime target for Hircine's gift), werewolves in Skyrim don't turn back to normal at death, so there's also the potential they don't see a difference, just as long as it's on two legs and has fur.
** Then there are the Vigilants of Stendarr, a wandering order devoted to the Divine of Mercy. They're dedicated to wiping out vampires, werewolves, and [[OurDemonsAreDifferent daedra]]--all of whom have relatively non-evil examples in-game--both to protect the mercy they believe these creatures loathe, and to grant mercy to those they see as tainted.
** The [[VampireHunter Dawnguard]] was recreated by a man whose methods were considered too extreme '''by the Vigilants of Stendarr''', so it's not a surprise this comes into play. Isran [[TheExtremistWasRight is absolutely right]] about vampires being a major threat, potentially of [[TheNightThatNeverEnds apocalyptic]] proportions, but it takes a lot for the Dovahkiin to convince him not to exterminate [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire Serana]], and even then he only agrees because she is more valuable alive than dead. They will also be hostile to a vampire Dovahkiin, even if said Dovahkiin avoids drinking blood at all, or only feeds on [[PayEvilUntoEvil bandits and other villains]].
*** Invoked by Serana herself, who reasons with the vampire hunter PC that they technically could kill her just because she is a vampire, but should not do so because there are eviler forces in motion and she is just trying to understand what's going on.
** The Blades will refuse to associate with you unless you [[spoiler:kill [[TokenHeroicOrc Paarthurnax]], even though he plays a crucial role in [[BigBad Alduin]]'s defeat and is the mentor to the Greybeards. Admittedly, Paarthurnax himself agrees [[StrawmanHasAPoint they are not entirely wrong]], since the will to dominate is in his nature as a dragon and it is only through great effort and meditation that he keeps control of himself.]]

** The ''Dawnguard'' DLC adds the titular order of {{Vampire Hunter}}s, which was re-formed by a man whose methods were considered ''too extreme by the Vigilants of Stendarr'', so it's not a surprise this comes into play.

* In ''Literature/AnnoDracula'', UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper is a vampire hunter, and seen in exactly the same way as the real Ripper was (that is, most people think he's a monster, but a handful don't see the women he kills as really being people). The sequels also occasionally reference it, most notably a sociopathic CaptainErsatz [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] in ''Literature/JohnnyAlucard'', who turns out to be [[spoiler:being manipulated by an actually evil vampire posing as her Watcher-counterpart]].

* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' plays with this a great deal--on a few occasions, ruthless vampires framed more peaceful ones for their crimes and let the town's indiscriminate Council kill them. Of particular notice is Bill Forbes, who actually tortured own his daughter in an attempt to teach her not to be a vampire. More recently, [[spoiler:the repeated deaths of Alaric Saltzman allowed the ancient witch Esther to turn him into one of these, to the extent that he brutally murdered other Council members for their failure to kill every vampire]].

* In ''Film/MenInBlack'', the eponymous organization seems to only accept candidates who are an aversion of this trope, which makes sense as most aliens on Earth are not bad and are simply supervised by the Men in Black. When James Edwards (Jay) went into the final round, they were given target practice. All the other candidates, who seemed to view all the cut-out alien targets as basically monsters, shot only aliens and refused to shoot any human targets; they were all rejected. Edwards did not shoot any of the aliens, for example because one was simply clearly working out while another was blowing its nose, and shot only the target of the little human girl at the end, because she was carrying a book on quantum mechanics down a street filled with scary-looking aliens in the middle of the nigh and therefore appeared out of place and highly suspicious.

* In ''Manhwa/WitchHunter'', the whole plot was kick-started when a new religion speaking out against Witches, a group of woman who are able to wield supernatural powers, started wide scale witch hunts, killing countless innocent witches. In answer to this, two of the most powerful witches--who are without a doubt sadistic warmongerers who enjoy carnage--and their followers started their own genocide against humanity, killing almost 2/3 of all humans on ''Earth''. The world scale organization humans formed to combat these witches {{subvert|edTrope}}s this trope by having made it their mission to ''limit'' witch deaths, instead capturing them alive and draining their magic, which has proven to be the reason so many of the humanity-hating ones are insane in the first place. They even employ and protect witches who are willing to fight for humanity and are, in fact, the only organization that treats humans and witches as equals.

* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'', this was a long time common among the shadowhunters. They have hunted and killed the downwordlers for little or no reason at all. According to Jace, it was [[FantasticRacism a great step]] to consider downworldlers as like humans, rather than like demons.

* ''Literature/RedMoonRising'' has poachers that hunt moon-runners (werewulves who Change outside the compounds) without regards for who they are as people. There were also the ''werewulfjaegers'', an extension of the SS that hunted werewolves and put them in separate concentration camps during the holocaust.

** The British [[KnightTemplar Men]] [[AncientConspiracy of]] [[CreatureHunterOrganization Letters]] in Season 12 takes this UpToEleven. Between killing friendly monsters, killing a human psychic girl, who [[PowerIncontinence was unaware that she was killing others by using her abilities to call for help]] that the Winchesters saved from her religious abusive family, on the grounds that she's a monster, and really having no issue with ColdBloodedTorture, killing [[spoiler: or brainwashing]] hunters or even their own members for slightest sign of disobedience, the British Men of Letters are arguably [[HeWhoFightsMonsters far worse than the so-called monsters they kill]]. Their leadership is corrupt to the core, Mr. Arthur Ketch (their assassin) is TheSociopath (and outright stated as such) and an amoral hitman with no real belief in their ideology and only in it to satisfy his killer urges, and their code includes killing everything that is a monster (no matter if good or evil) and [[spoiler: their operatives are ChildSoldiers raised and indoctrinated in the code and then made to kill their friends to see if they're obedient. This haunts Mick Davies and eventually causes him to switch sides to the Winchesters only to get killed as [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness He Has Outlived His Usefulness]].]] For all their anti-monster propaganda, [[spoiler: the leadership has a backroom DealWithTheDevil with Crowley himself.]] It only gets worse from there. [[spoiler: Sam, in the Season 12 two-part finale, concludes that the British branch has crossed the MoralEventHorizon and leads a raid on their compound, killing all those present and cutting ties with the organization after the British Men of Letters start killing all the hunters.]] Needless to say, the American branch that Sam and Dean are a remnant of were very different, lacked the extremism and really had the best intentions at heart.
