* Okita Sougo from ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''. He's a sadist and is proud to be one. Yet, he is one of the good guys and indulges in PetTheDog occasionally. [[GenreSavvy Lampshaded by the man himself]] that the benefit of being a heroic sociopath is that he can avoid HeelFaceDoorSlam when he feels like being nice.

* The slightly-cracked, catchphrase-spouting, ever-shameless SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}. He's also FauxAffablyEvil, loves to make people go WhatTheHellHero, is DangerouslyGenreSavvy, and is the TropeCodifier of a few other tropes. Note, however, that it seems to [[DependingOnTheWriter depend on the writer]]. Sometimes he's this with a very large helping of CrazyAwesome, while at other times (particularly in the newer issues) he becomes a NobleDemon who would NeverHurtAnInnocent. As noble as someone who is insane can be anyway. Considering that he's an absolute fruitcake, there is absolutely nothing preventing both those interpretations from being true, depending not so much upon the writer as on the state of Deadpool's brain-pan.

* Richard from ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' is an undead warlock spellcaster of immense power with {{Cloudcuckoolander}} tendencies who likes to slaughter innocent peasants and ''[[EatsBabies eat babies]]''. His catchphrase is a variation on a line spoken in this comic: "You all saw it! That orphanage attacked me!" with the burning building in the background. Being undead, he can take normally fatal injuries (as being impaled through the stomach, getting an ax in the forehead or being TooKinkyToTorture) and joke about it, and is capable of destroying anything with his ice and fire spells (at the cost of needing to rest after exerting himself). His "partner" is the naïve elf Cale'Anon Vatay, who wishes to be good and noble (even though elves in his time are feared as brutal and callous after wiping out the last remaining nation of their noble kindred in the past. Richard's excuse for traveling with the other characters is that he "likes killing things" and gets bored easily. Richard treats Cale like an amusing pet, but he "respects [Cale's] willingness to kill" whenever Cale is confronted with obvious Bad Guys.

* Korgoth from ''KorgothOfBarbaria'' is basically a combination of ConanTheBarbarian and [[WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers Brock Samson]]. He is an apathetic and anti-social {{badass}} with an insatiable appetite for sex and violence in the most graphic degree. In just the first fight of the pilot episode, he tears off a man's arm and beats him to death with it, chops a man in half down the middle with an axe, and tears off another man's skin, douses him with alcohol, and lights him on fire. ''For laughs''.

* Killface (real name Evelyn) from ''FriskyDingo''. His goal for much of the series is to use his [[WeaponOfMassDestruction Annihilatrix]] to propel Earth into the sun for no apparent reason, and he kills and mains people at the drop of the hat. In the pilot episode he kills a man and uses the corpse to stage an impromptu ventriloquist act (oblivious to how appallingly lame his jokes are).

* The title character in ''AssyMcGee'' may very well qualify, being a ultra-violent and remorseless parody of 70s/80s cops that makes [[Series/TwentyFour Jack Bauer]] look tame by comparison.

* Possibly Rico from ''ThePenguinsOfMadagascar.'' He's described at least once in universe as a "world-class psychopath," and he especially likes blowing stuff up and causing other characters bodily harm. That said, is there anybody out there who doesn't absolutely love Rico? I doubt it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', Hyde serves this role. He's a pyromaniac who enjoys wanton violence, but because the enemies are giant monsters rather than humans it's played for laughs.

Added DiffLines:

* Rick Sanchez from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' is an excellent example. Rick's motives are generally revealed to be at least minimally heroic by the end of most episodes, particularly where protecting his family or ForScience is concerned... but the means he employs are invariably of a strong sociopathic bent. Given that he's a supergenius MadScientist, the aforementioned means tend to be either hilariously gratuitous (like [[spoiler:his murder of King Jellybean for attempting to rape Morty]]) or hilariously indifferent (like [[spoiler:establishing an interdimensional daycare center for Jerrys since Jerrys have a high tendency to die on adventures, but then not caring whether he takes the correct Jerry home afterwards]]).

* [[spoiler:Cesar Salazar]] of ''GeneratorRex'' is a subversion of this. He is described as "kooky" and "kinda off" and appears for a while to just be a wacky inventor, but pretty normal otherwise. But as time goes on, he begins to display a marked lack of concern for people (including his own ''brother'') or ethics. It seems he has no moral code of his own, even.
