  • Unexpectedly used in Survival of the Fittest. Johnny "Mordread" Lamika of version one and Walter Smith of version two were both serial killers despite being high-school age teenagers. Johnny was explained as having initially never left enough evidence for the deaths to be considered anything but an accident, but was eventually caught and sent to a mental institution after a successful insanity plea on the part of his defense. Walter got away with his actions because his father was a Senator, and used his influence to cover up Walter's actions and get him out of trouble on the few occasions he was suspected. In return, his father would sometimes bring him political enemies to torture and/or dispose of.

  • Cause of Death is all about this. The very first episode shows the nameless killer bust into the victim's house and kill him... with a granola bar. There seems to be some mystery behind who the woman is in the picture, but the story is ongoing.
  • The Kindness of Devils:
    • Under The Cold Moon has Sieglinde Nomura, who spent her long life kidnapping and murdering hundreds of thousands of victims via painful scientific experimentations.
    • Only A Lonely Heart has Y'golonac the Defiler, who occasionally murdered his victims after raping them as well.
  • A Played for Laughs version from Echo Chamber: In Terrible Interviewees Montage, there was one terrible interviewee known only as "???" who might have been one. He had a large knife, seemed Axe-Crazy, and talked about a large freezer...
  • Every lich in Angel of Death is in the Supernatural category.
    • Cody, however, is notable for how well known he becomes to the Public.

    • As is Valthakar when he begins to kill innocent civilians, (unlike Cody, who only killed criminals,) in order to hurt Cody's public image.
    • Then there's the Blue Butterfly, who, despite also being a lich seems to have every desire to kill in any case.
    • Despite the series' name, none of the characters introduced so far are actually Angels of Death as defined on this page.
  • Legatum:
    • Help Not Wanted has Ogrell Syn'Gorrsh, who is revealed to be a cannibalistic killer who frequently kidnapped and tortured his victims to death, or simply drove them into becoming cannibals themselves.
    • Scrambled Egg has Trellorv, a hedonistic swamp troll who spent several years killing and raping indiscriminately for personal pleasure.
  • The Alice Killer from the creepypasta of the same name has killed a total of five people, leaving playing cards with the word "Alice" written on them as part of his M.O.

  • There is a Played for Laughs version in the Yogscast miniseries "Yogtours". Turpster, the host, will go around various offices and give the audience a tour of that office in each episode, only to kill the owner of that office when the episode reaches its end. Every person involved has died, bar Turps, although Hat Films fought back and Duncan Jones has been shown to appear alive again with no explanation.
  • The Heaven Cycle has Ashton Sharpe, who had a habit of purchasing victims from a human trafficking ring so he could rape them, and then torture them to death.
  • Worm features the Slaughterhouse Nine, a gang of thrill killers with high-end superpowers who rampage across North America attacking cities and subjecting random people to hideous torture and carnage. They likely have a higher body count than the rest of this page combined; their visit to Brockton Bay kills hundreds inside of a week, and they've been active for more than ten years.
  • Jeff the Killer. He was driven insane and killed his family before going on a killing spree. Arguably the most well known creepypasta example of this trope.
  • RedLetterMedia's Mr. Plinkett is a 119-year old serial killer who murders women in his creepy basement. He's also a very opinionated movie critic.
  • The Veronica Exclusive has Jane, a teenage serial killer as its main villain. She's also the protagonist's girlfriend. This turns out about as well as you'd expect.
  • Tails of Fame has Rast Racklyn, who raped and murdered several innocents over a period of many weeks so he could create snuff films and become "famous."
  • Episode 3 of Anime Crimes Division features a serial killer.. of Gundam figurines.
  • The "Heavy Hitter" episodes of The Last Podcast on the Left are spotlights on serial killers throughout history. Typically running three episodes long on average, every profile follows a formula of describing the central figure's childhood, with the first episode typically concluding at their first murder, the middle episode(s) going into their careers and how they avoided being caught, and the final episode describing their ends. They do all this while treating the horrible people involved with all the respect and gravitas they deserve: Absolutely none.
  • Migraine reveals that Ken Muntz is one, having already killed at least seven women using the same M.O. with each victim.
  • My Dad's Tapes: The father, donotcontinue, and Uncle Don each have a massive body count, mostly made up of young women. The Zodiac Killer is also mentioned, having been the father's mentor.
  • The Human Pet: Sam Deercot had been kidnapping, torturing, and killing people since at least the 70s.
