*** Played with in the case of [[spoiler:Itachi]]. He sacrificed his family, his home, his reputation, basically everything, to protect the Leaf and avert the civil war his family's coup would have caused. But he also kept his younger brother alive and repeatedly mind-raped the kid, forcing him to grow up into a bitter obsessive lunatic [[UnreliableNarrator for reasons that are subject to change at any given moment]]. To date it's been narrowed down to either because he wanted to die at [[spoiler: Sasuke's]] hands (which he didn't, making his efforts totally meaningless) or because he ([[InformedAttribute allegedly]]) [[spoiler: loved the Sauce too much to kill him.]]

* Elmer C. Albatross of LightNovel/{{Baccano}} has this mentality, although it isn't really apparent until you get to know the guy. He's obsessed with happiness and tries to make everyone he knows smile. Not because he cares about them, no. It's entirely for his own benefit. He's just a [[TheSociopath sociopath]] who really ''really'' likes smiles.

* {{Bleach}} has Yhwach, the man whose entire being seems to revolve around giving pieces of himself to others only to take everything they have to offer. He's even outright stated his belief that everything in this world exists to be taken by him.

* Lina Inverse in most incarnations of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}}''; while she does take the time to help others (and save the lives of many if necessary), the true reason she often falls into grand adventures in the first place is so she can acquire money among other things, and will manipulate/leave behind her companions for her own sake. Her [[{{Gluttony}} greed]] is immense - in one NonSerialMovie, she destroys a restaurant because she loses the sardine they offered her - ''which she stepped on herself.''

* Although it seems doubtful, the Huckebein family in ''MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' also show these symptoms. Every single page in each chapter, they seemed to indicate to readers that they were superior in every way. So far as they dominate the whole story.

* Ryuko from ''Anime/KillLaKill'' suffers from this trope to an extent. Having grown up with no love from a {{parent|al abandonment}} or {{friend|less background}} caused her to develop a self-centered mindset, especially when dealing with her revenge quest. The negative effects of this are shown when [[spoiler:it's revealed that she's part-Life Fiber]]. She completely ignores what others think of her (including Senketsu, who's essentially a bird of a feather to her regarding her dilemma), and is so consumed by [[IAmAMonster her negative opinion of herself]] that she decides to face the BigBad all by herself, with [[BrainwashedAndCrazy very]] [[FaceHeelTurn bad]] [[SanitySlippage results]].

* Ryoki Tachibana from the manga ''HotGimmick''. Although he's obsessed with Hatsumi he's usually far too up himself to ever do anything as pointless as care about her. His response to most of her (considerable) problems is "forget it, just focus on me".

* [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot Miyu Greer]] and [[EnfanteTerrible Alyssa Searrs]] from ''MaiHiME'' have a variation of this, in that they believe it's all about ''them'': they believe that no bond could possibly be stronger than the one they share with each other, and as a consequence of this, they have no problem with hurting other people for the sake of their syndicate's UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans plans. When ''they'' are the ones being wronged, though, they lament the injustice of it all.

** From the follow-up series, ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'', Tomoe epitomizes this. Her main motivation for committing evil deeds is in order to get closer to her long-time crush, only willing to follow the rules [[spoiler:(apart from facilitating attempted rape and murder)]] so long as she benefits from it. Even when she's offered to become one of the BigBad's soldiers, she isn't as much interested in serving him as she is in using her new-found abilities to impress Shizuru and crush her rivals.

* In ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'', Keima comes to the conclusion that the {{MacGuffin Girl}}s he's seeking are not just girls he's met in the past, but specifically those closest to him (a childhood friend and girls in the same class and/or grade level). He goes so far as to suggest that finding these girls is the reason he was chosen as a spirit hunter in the first place. Narcissistic as it sounds, however, events have so far supported his hypothesis.

** It would also seem that Mello cares ''far'' more about besting Near [[PunchClockHero than he does about actually bringing Kira to justice.]]

* In ''SaintBeast'', Zeus intends to lead all the angels along the path of righteousness and anyone who is impure is an affront to his ideal world. [[DisproportionateRetribution He usually reconciles this by purging them out of existence]].
