* Music/DanielAmos’s “It’s Sick” (from ''Music/VoxHumana'') is about responding to foreign tragedies with complete apathy. The narrator at least has the self-awareness to feel bad that he doesn’t feel bad:

A lack of empathy is a major character trait, one that drives many others. The villain will often have this trait, and will be denounced sometimes as a psychopath, or a sociopath. [[UsefulNotes/LackOfEmpathy Real-world disorders]] with the same names inform this trope, but the relationship is very loose.

* Bill Cipher, like in the [[WesternAnimation/Gravity Falls show]], has this in ''Fanfic/ATriangleInTheStars''. [[spoiler: It doesn't last.]]

* Dr. Kirk in ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'' doesn't give a damn about anyone but his experiments. In the ending path where [[spoiler: Gail]] dies, Kirk makes fun of them. Regina has none of that and responds by punching the doctor in the face.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': [[MagnificentBastard Azula]] is all about this trope, though whether it's intrinsic to her nature or an effect of her unfortunate upbringing and uncertain mental state is up for debate.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/YuriOnIce'': An interesting, selective case with Yuri Katsuki, of all people. He has so little self-worth that he can't empathize with people that do value and support him, including his family and friends in Hasetsu, [[{{Fanboy}} Minami]], and Victor. He manages to [[spoiler: upset Victor in Episode 12 while acting [[DissonantSerenity completely detached from the situation]]. He actually enters the rink after their fight calmer than in any other competition, despite Victor being ''clearly'' miserable and depressed]].

* Dimentio, the true BigBad of ''SuperPaperMario''. He clearly sees his boss's feelings for his lost love as a weakness to be exploited, and does the same with Nastasia's feelings for Bleck.

** In general the main characters of the series are [[HeroicComedicSociopath not nice but still funny]] people and the player character The Boss is this. While they do care for their friends, even [[NoRespectGuy Pierce]], they have so such softness to anyone who crosses them. While Johnny brutally murders [[spoiler:Shogo]], Boss can and will kill every rival gang leader, up to an including [[spoiler:Julius,, the previous leader of the Third Street Saints]]. The only person Boss spares is Matt Miller, the leader of the Deckers, just because he's a [[TeensAreMonsters teen]] (and a [[NominalImportance named character]] but still). Everyone else is fair game.
