* Among the ''VisualNovel/ShallWeDate'' {{visual novel}}s, two deal with groups of these:
** ''Shall We Date?: Ninja Assassin'' begins with the murder of the PlayerCharacter's family in Edo (the old Tokyo) and her swearing revenge. She hears of a vigilante group that can carry revenges and looks for them, and after witnessing one of their assassinations, they accept her request and take her in.
** The ''Ninja Assassin'' SpinOff ''[[VisualNovel/ShallWeDateNinjaShadow Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow]]'' has the PlayerCharacter pulling a SweetPollyOliver and joining a vigilante group in Nagasaki, which her brother was supposed to join [[CynicismCatalyst before he was killed in front of her]]. [[spoiler: The guys from ''Ninja Assassin'', whose vigilante group has deep bond with this one, make several appearances and are even quite vital in some of the routes.]]

* Hibari Kyouya from ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. He rules Nanimori with an iron fist and does whatever he pleases since people are too afraid to call him out on it, but god help you if you so much as look at his hometown the wrong way.

* The ''SwatKats'' kinda count; although their reason is because the Enforcers aren't flexible enough to take down the supervillains who attack on a weekly basis. Indeed, they were once Enforcer pilots, but got kicked out by their Jerkass Commander, Ulysses Feral, after Feral pulled an idiotic OnlyICanKillHim move while they were trying to capture one of the chief villains, Dark Kat; after he demoted them to working in a junkyard, they promptly realized the Enforcers were throwing a lot of good stuff away, and used this to build their arsenal (including their CoolPlane, the [=TurboKat=]) and handle the villains on their terms.

The Vigilante Man is a man who brings criminals to justice by any means necessary, even if it means killing the criminals outright. Although he is breaking the law, he is presented as the good guy. If the police are after him, expect them to secretly sympathize with his goals. Occasionally, [[InspectorJavert one officer]] is determined to catch the Vigilante Man, but you can be sure that his fellow officers aren't working very hard to help him. The "good" Vigilante Man [[WouldNotShootAGoodGuy refuses to fight the police, and if confronted, will either surrender or die before harming them]]. The "bad" Vigilante Man is willing to kill anyone who tries to stop him.

* [[spoiler:Jellal]] becomes this in ''Manga/FairyTail'', forming a small independent guild that hunts down dark guilds, something the Council doesn't allow of the guilds in it's jurisdiction, as it counts as illegal warring between guilds.

* The "vigilante hero" subgenre became an staple of action movies roughly between the 1970s and the very early 1990s mainly as rising crime rates and increasing police corruption (and racism in the case of blaxploitation fils) led people to lose faith in the long arm of the law and act for themselves instead.
