** Majin Buu provides different takes on this. Fat Buu because he genuinely doesn't know any better due to his childlike demeanor, and Kid Buu because he's too mindless to comprehend anything other than destruction.

* In ''Fanfic/TheSevenHunters'', a LandBeforeTime fanfic, Calin is very clearly a sociopath. He thinks very little of his fellow packmates and shows no emotion as several of them are lost during a battle. He even puts on a fake smile and a cordial demeanor as ''he is telling a rival pack they are about to be exterminated''. Calling him callous would be an understatement.

* Tohsaka Tokiomi of ''LightNovel/FateZero''. Dear god, Tokiomi. The man gives up his younger daughter to a FateWorseThanDeath for the sake of making her an "equal" to her elder sister. And he seems to be genuinely surprised that Kariya disagrees with him over it, his response being more or less "are you seriously asking me such a pointless question?" Kariya calls him an "unfeeling magus" and "inhuman monster"... and arguably, he's not wrong.
** Archer's response to hearing Saber's wish to save her kingdom from its destruction is to laugh in her face and call her a naive child. And unlike Rider, he doesn't even give reasons he thinks that way.

*** Some Blanks seem to be perfectly capable of empathy, which suggests that those who lack it may have turned out that way due to severe abuse or neglect as children, no doubt due to the sense of "wrongness" that normal humans tend to feel while in their presence. There are mentions of Blanks/Pariahs being hunted down and killed on more superstitious planets due to this creep factor, which would lend credence to the idea.

** Female lead Tohsaka Rin is like this as a consequence of her Magus upbringing, though it's not nearly as severe as most examples. She admits to [[spoiler:Sakura in the Heaven's Feel route]] that although she cares for her, she cannot feel [[spoiler:the guilt over their father's actions]] that they both believe she should. She also tends to not really understand how Shirou, Archer, and Saber feel on occasion, though to be fair all three of them are also pretty messed up emotionally.
