Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/WhatChapter372OfFairyTailShouldHaveBeen'':
** Erza, despite having [[MadeASlave every reason]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast to have empathy]], felt none whatsoever as she tortured Kyouka. [[spoiler: Even [[EyeScream ripping her eyes out]] didn't bother her, which is strange considering one of her own eyes got torn out when she was a '''child'''!]] It's also strange how someone who still feels an overwhelming amount of regret for being unable to prevent the suffering of her friends to feel no remorse whatsoever in the suffering she herself is causing.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'': Safe to say, the game's whole plot happens in the first place because a certain Professor Hojo was being this trope very much and decided to execute his dickish experiments to a lot of people he came across, regardless of the consequence.

** Frieza has absolutely no empathy for anyone but himself. Best exemplified in ''[[Anime/DragonBallSuper Super]]'', when Tagoma coldly shoots through Shisami to hit Gohan; while the Z-Fighters and [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Sorbet are all taken aback at Tagoma's ruthlessness, Frieza is ''impressed'' by it.

** Majin Buu provides different takes on this. Fat Buu genuinely doesn't know any better due to his childlike demeanor and gradually learns empathy through Mr.Satan and Bee, while Kid Buu is simply too mindless to comprehend ''anything'' other than destruction. Super Buu on the other hand is sentient enough to know that he's inflicting harm on others and evil enough to not care and enjoy it anyway.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has many antagonized characters, villain and anti-hero alike, with a history of lacking empathy towards anyone but themselves. Sasuke, Gaara (Pre-CharacterDevelopment), Orochimaru, Kabuto, numerous Akatsuki members, [[spoiler:Obito]], Kabuto, and especially Madara. There's also the abundance of villains from the anime filler arcs but let's face it, [[OvertookTheManga no one really cares for those.]]

* Jon Irenicus in ''BaldursGate II'', apparently as a result of (roughly speaking) having no soul. Presumably Bodhi too, but she doesn't act that way as clearly. Irenicus has lost the ability to feel most emotions, at least positive ones, and is himself horrified at his condition. However, since he was already evil before and is now devoted to vengeance, he doesn't mind being able to do absolutely horrible things without flinching. His interactions with others can go something like this:

** Vegeta was a perfect example before his HeelFaceTurn, being so cruel and callous that [[EvenEvilHasStandards even Nappa and Raditz were shocked by some of his actions]]. He coldly murdered his partner Nappa who asked him for help and refused to consider bringing Radit back because he was a weakling for getting himself killed. He also laughed when the Namekians he killed weren't wished back because of how the wish was worded. Even when he wasn't technically evil anymore, [[ItsAllAboutMe he still doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself, including his own son]]. It wasn't until the Buu Saga that he begun to show any empathy towards people and it's mostly because he became begrudgingly fond of them, which he saw as a weakness and was why he gave himself to Babidi. By the end of the series, he finally learned to truly care about someone other than himself.
