* Rose Quartz from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse''. In spite of being a compassionate AllLovingHero, she usually failed to understand others' emotions, sometimes with disastrous results.

** Eric Cartman [[ItsOnlyAboutMe only cares about himself]] and [[EntitledBastard getting whatever he wants]], and is perfectly willing to [[ConsummateLiar lie, cheat]], [[ManipulativeBastard manipulate]], and [[KickTheDog commit mass murder]] to do so. In one episode, when Kyle is in dire need of a kidney transplant and Cartman is the only match, Cartman blatantly refuses to do so unless he's paid $10 million for it, forcing Stan and the other people of South Park to resort to trickery to get said kidney.

** Alice, the recurring DarkMagicalGirl, honestly has no idea (being a completely innocent ''and completely insane'' UndeadChild) why people are so reluctant to Die for Her.

** Alice, the recurring DarkMagicalGirl, honestly has no idea (being a completely innocent ''and completely insane'' UndeadChild) why people are so reluctant to Die for Her. Being undead, however, could make her case not this trope but a belief that DeathIsNotPermanent for everyone, not just her.

* Ned in ''Series/NedAndStacy'' thinks of himself like this and usually up is, but eventually comes to feel empathy with Stacy. At one point Stacy tells him that he has no compassion for the people in the muffin shop because he cannot imagine being them. He then has a dream in which he is ever person in the muffin shop. Since he "can't say no to me." he is empathetic and refuses to shut it down. Of course this is a huge Jerkass move towards his partner Amanda, Stacy's sister and Ned shows no empathy towards her.

** Due to his child-like mentality, Zeno doesn't seem to comprehend that erasing trillions of mortals and universes '''isn't''' a good thing. This is best shown when he erased Universe 9 for losing the Tournament of Power where when all the fighters momentarily stopped for a moment due to witnessing a universe being erased, he is genuinely baffled as to why they are stopping meaning that he fails to understand to horrible act of erasing a whole universe. This mentality continues even as Zeno wipes out six more universes until only five remain at the end of ''Super''.

For instance, [[spoiler: not understanding why Precia is upset that Alicia's brain has been overwritten and is currently serving as Enlil's new body. Or why the protagonists are upset.]][[spoiler: This turns out to be foreshadowing. Enlil lacks empathy because [[TheManBehindTheMan Yggdrasil]] actively suppressed it.]]

* Pick any of the {{Big Bad}}s in the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise. They tend to be wealthy but criminally insane and sociopathic {{Diabolical Mastermind}}s who are willing to be greedy and cut corners, all for a quick buck and without regards to the countless innocents they've killed or about to kill. Notable examples include:
** 007's biggest ArchEnemy [[Characters/JamesBondBlofeld Ernst Stavro Blofeld]], the nefarious head of the NebulousEvilOrganization SPECTRE. Part of his EvilPlan often involves [[PlayingBothSides pitting powerful nations into fighting each other]] via elaborate {{Batman Gambit}}s and {{False Flag Operation}}s without them suspecting he was the mastermind. To him, profit is the only thing that matters when he's formulating a scheme. Everything else can burn down to the ground. If millions are killed, so be it, [[ButForMeItWasTuesday and he'll shrug it off as if nothing odd or unusual had happened]]. And if minions die, [[BadBoss who gives a damn?]]
