A subtrope of the AntiHero and WellIntentionedExtremist. May be NeutralGood, TrueNeutral, NeutralEvil, ChaoticGood, ChaoticNeutral or even ChaoticEvil, [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism depending on setting]]. If he stops discriminating between innocents and bad guys, he might end up JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope and [[HeWhoFightsMonsters become that which he despises]].

* ''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.]]
