* The "anti-walkthroughs" featured on [[Website/ItHeSoftware it-he.org]] make the protagonists of the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'', ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' and ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' into these, partially for sake of SequenceBreaking and partially for the pure fun of VideogameCrueltyPotential.

* Captain Hero from ''WesternAnimation/DrawnTogether'' is ostensibly a superhero, but has almost no regard for human life whatsoever (although he may simply be too stupid to know what he's doing). An example of his sociopathy is throwing an entire planet (which happens to be his ''home planet'') and everything living on it into a star to prove he's "heroic".
** And his clever use of human shields.
*** Captain Hero One! Billions of Innocent Zeblonians... um... dead. Oh. I uh... (Slinks away)
** Ling Ling, the Pikachu spoof from the same show is initially portrayed as this as well; a murderous sociopath who wants to kill and destroy everyone he encounters in hilariously brutal manners, but later becomes a frequent ChewToy[=/=]ButtMonkey (given [[SadistShow the nature of the show]], this could apply to anybody, though).
*** It takes on a whole new dimension when "Clum Babies" reveals that among his people, battles to the death are an allegory for sex, complete with one-night stands and unsatisfied opponents faking it.

A Heroic Comedic Sociopath can and will eat the souls of jaywalkers, swindle old ladies, detonate buildings, punt puppies into traffic, and steal candy from babies all in broad daylight with a hundred witnesses present. The KarmaHoudini is a natural part of his being--it's simply more [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]] for him to get away with it. Being cranked up to the top and played for laughs as he is, the Heroic Comedic Sociopath is so fun and invincible that the audience naturally cheers for him and his wacky antics. At the same time, he may serve as WishFulfillment: a fantasy for the audience. Some who have wanted to give the boss what they deserve can wish they were like the Heroic Comedic Sociopath.

* Gertrude from ''ComicBook/IHateFairyland'' is essentially an AxCrazy {{expy}} of [[Literature/TheWizardOfOz Dorothy Gale]] who was DrivenToMadness by the [[TastesLikeDiabetes overly saccharine]] nature of the eponymous fantasy world. She has no compunctions with slaughtering every cutesy-wootsey creature in her path to find the key that will get her back home.

Compare SociopathicHero, for when this kind of behavior is not PlayedForLaughs. See also TokenEvilTeammate and PoisonousFriend. Heroic Comedic Sociopaths are either {{Nominal Hero}}es (when they fulfill the heroic part) or {{Villain Protagonist}}s (all the other times).
