* Deconstructed in an episode of Michael Chiklis' previous series, ''TheCommish''. The episode features a vigilante who tapes his acts and sends them to the press. At first, his actions are relatively innocuous (running criminals off the road, then humiliating them), and even the cops are cheering him on. Commissioner Tony, however, thinks the guy is bad news. He's proven correct later when the police arrest a man for a brutal rape/murder, then release him after realizing he's innocent. The vigilante, wrongly believing the innocent man got OffOnATechnicality, goes to the guy's home and [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope clubs him to death]]. The vigilante then becomes the cops' target for the rest of the episode.

* The Christian Marines in ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' start out like this, a small group of ex-servicemen banding together to take on the criminals who prey on their old neighborhoods. Then they move on to bigger fish, the corrupt politicians and officials who shelter the gangs, and things escalate from there on.

* 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.
