*** Of course, the personality motivating Castle Hetrodyne is a semi-corrupt [[BrainUploading software copy]] of one of Agatha's ancestors, running on fragmented hardware and powered by an Evil River. And it controls the whole town. Including the defences.

** Henry turns out to be a subversion: a good part of his CharacterDevelopment is about him ''actually'' realizing that his moral compass is whacked and trying to take measures [[AFriendInNeed to at the very least help his friends]]. While he's still a weirdo and [[BloodKnight very fond of blood and slaughter]], he does come to care for the Shepherds in his own Henry way, and, if he gets married, he turns out to be a pretty decent husband and father.

[[note]]This was a lot stronger in the Japanese version, where he went through more character development and was clearly a mix of outright oblivious to the fact that he was weird or creepy and putting on a cheerful front in the face of a hideously traumatic past. The English translation wipes out or minimizes his past and development -- especially regarding the idea that he's putting on a cheerful face -- and he sometimes comes across as deliberately needling the other characters rather than simply oblivious.[[/note]] Another support with Ricken has this exchange:

**Kowalski has shown us some of the many ways yelling "For Science!" will lead to the death of us all and he constantly ignores the huge warning signs and actual consequences of his inventions. But still, watching him get childishly giddy about his giant monster, or whatever that weeks invention is, working makes him a fun character

* Hiruma from ''Manga/Eyeshield21''. Threatens, blackmails, and violences his team into existence. Treats everyone to their own personal "fucking" nickname. Is generally a jerk. Thank goodness he's on the Devilbats' side because he's so ridiculously over the top, he's hilarious.

* Lockhart Flawse of Tom Sharpe's ''The Throwback'' cheerfully committed a wide variety of immoral and illegal acts in order to kick out the residents of a housing development his wife inherited so that he could hike up the rent.

* In ''TheBoondocks'', Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy are two sociopathic veteran soldiers who constantly drink, curse, and rob stores yet get away with their idiotic plans due to Wuncler's extremely rich father having the police on his payroll.
** Riley is a sociopath-in-training. Naturally he gets away with anything his gurus do, but he could incite a riot and get a mere slap across the crown for cursing too much.

* Mick Rory (AKA Heatwave) in ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow''. Notably is that he hardly considers himself a hero. He just enjoys killing people and sees TimeTravel as an opportunity to party and steal things.

* 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.
