Mission-oriented - Mission-oriented killers typically justify their acts as "ridding the world" of a certain type of person perceived as undesirable.

Lust - Sex is the primary motive of lust killers, whether or not the victims are dead, and fantasy plays a large role in their killing.

Thrill - The primary motive of a thrill killer is to induce pain or terror in their victims, which provides stimulation and excitement for the killer.
