* Max Barry's ''MachineMan'' has Dr. Charles Neumann. He has virtually no empathy whatsoever at the start. This goes further as he [[spoiler:starts replacing his body parts with Better Parts]].

* Yuno from ''Manga/MiraiNikki'' is this and a {{Yandere}} to boot. More to the point, she only has empathy for Yukiteru, even though her definition of empathy is quite twisted.

* In ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'', the process of becoming an aberration, and thus a being that feeds off of humans in an attempt to cheat death, is explicitly said to destroy any capacity for empathy.

** 007's biggest ArchEnemy [[Characters/JamesBondBlofeld Ernst Stavro Blofeld]], the nefarious head of the NebulousEvilOrganization SPECTRE. Part of his EvilPlan often involves [[PlayinBothSides pitting powerful nations into fighting each other]] via elaborate {{Batman Gambit}}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, who gives a damn?
** Film/{{Goldfinger}}, with the backing of Red China, intends to cause economic chaos in the West by nuking the American gold supply at Fort Knox. When Bond asks about the potential death toll of Goldfinger's plan, Goldfinger just shrugs and remarks [[AMillionIsAStatistic "American motorists kill that many every two years"]].
** The BigBad of ''Film/AViewToAKill'', Max Zorin, is one of the worst examples of this in the Bond franchise, as he's willing to corner the microchip market by triggering an earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area, without regards to the collateral damage he's about to cause, given that he is [[AxCrazy a violent and unhinged brute]] to begin with. He's also a BadBoss, as he gleefully mows down his henchmen and casually kills his own [[TheDragon Dragon]] [[TheBaroness May Day]], all without a shred of remorse.
