* ''WebVideo/TheFlyingMan'' is a deconstruction of the trope, depicting a scenario where a ruthless vigilante has somehow gotten FlyingBrick superpowers similar to Superman. The result is a horrifying HumanoidAbomination that brutally murders over thirty criminals in about a week, sometimes right in front of innocent civilians, simply because no one in the city has the power to stop him. Intriguingly, [[spoiler: the ending suggests he may have a more human side to him, as he spares a small-time crook upon seeing that the man has a young child.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': Naturally, as a brutal ByTheBookCop, Judge Dredd will crack down hard on vigilantes in Mega-City One who think they should "assist" the Justice Department in its duties. They're not the law, HE is the law.

* In ''Film/SuddenImpact'': Jennifer Spencer tracks down and murders the people responsible for brutally gang raping her several years before. Oddly enough, Dirty Harry doesn't arrest her once he discovers the truth, a significant change from his actions and attitude in ''Film/MagnumForce''.

Added DiffLines:

* Deconstructed with The Fans in ''VideoGame/HotlineMiami2WrongNumber'' - despite going up against armed criminals, they do that for the sake of violence, aimlessly improvising targets for their massacres on the go and quickly finding themselves doing favors for their friends after finding out there's not many people to kill.

** Likewise Edward 'The Comedian'' Blake, who embodied the SociopathicHero variant and is arguably even more of a deconstruction than WellIntentionedExtremist Rorschach; he was portrayed as a dangerous nutcase corrupted by the power to dispense KarmicDeath, who knew damn well he'd passed any sane person's MoralEventHorizon and didn't give a damn.
