* [[spoiler: Getaway]] from ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'', enough so that his nature is a major spoiler. He ''does'' have a sense of morality, with a strong belief in loyalty to his cause and a desire to avoid unnecessary violence. Yet at the same time his moral code is odd and often seems more concerned with the overall concepts than with individual people. He leads a mutiny and makes a deal with the BigBad to get rid of Megatron, yet speaks as if he's on the moral high-ground simply because he's doing so for the crew as a whole. When the DJD kill some people, [[spoiler: Getaway]] expresses seemingly genuine sadness for their deaths, but doesn't really show any ''guilt'' over it, even though his scheme indirectly led to those deaths. Essentially he thinks less "it's all my fault" and more "shit happens".
-->"I'm not a bad person. I just have strong beliefs."

* This is the whole point of ''Series/{{Dexter}}''. The title character is a psychopathic serial killer who had a moral code instilled in him by his foster father. While his code prevents him from killing innocents, its main purpose is to prevent him from getting caught.

* Franchise/HannibalLecter's [[BlueAndOrangeMorality personal ethics are bizarre]]. Murder, torture, cannibalism and mutilation are fine, but sexual assault and rudeness are punishable by death. What Lecter considers to be rude behaviour is unclear as he himself insults, ignores and talks down to people. And murder could be seen as being pretty rude as well. Furthermore, his definition of evil is to defy the rules of society and he made the deliberate choice to be evil by rejecting societal norms.

* ''{{Timeline 191}}'''s Boris Lavochkin is a SociopathicSoldier who will kill anybody who even looks at him funny. He still finds the CSA's FinalSolution horrifying and deserving of punishment, meaning that for all his disregard of morality, he has a conception of it.

** On the other hand, he feels a deep kinship with [[LonersAreFreaks anyone who doesn who don't "fit" into society at large]]. That is, he tends to treat them like he does his brother Mycroft; constant needling in their day-to-day lives, mostly out of boredom. And he's an outright brutal ''bastard'' to anyone who preys upon them.

The psychologist Andrzej M. Łobaczewski described something somewhat similar to this as a "schizoidal psychopath"[[note]]Not to be confused with schizoidal personality disorder, which has nothing to do with psychopathy at all.[[/note]]—they may have a conscience, but it's so heavily distorted that their moral codes end up demented and their attitude toward society becomes that of a KnightTemplar.

* ComicBook/DoctorDoom subscribes to a personal code of honour that concerns [[IGaveMyWord always keeping his word]], repaying any debt he owes to another, [[TheGoodKing looking after the welfare of the people of Latveria]], [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans working to eradicate poverty, famine, disease, and war]] via WorldDomination, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick ruthlessly avenging any and every insult to his character, real or imagined]]. Depending on his mood (and, thus, DependingOnTheWriter), he can abuse the hell out of all of these -- ExactWords, RevengeBeforeReason, DisproportionateRetribution, EvilIsPetty, UngratefulBastard, ItsAllAboutMe, and a serious LackOfEmpathy are all characteristics of the man that his code doesn't get in the way of, and Latveria is sometimes depicted as a brutally efficient PoliceState. As his worst, ColdBloodedTorture, WouldHurtAChild, and mass-murder are all fair game.

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica:'' [[spoiler: Kyubey]] is [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation debatably]] this. The character views emotions as a mental disorder, and simply does not understand human morality. At the same time, [[spoiler: he's trying to prevent the heat death of the universe.]] What makes the character debatable is that [[spoiler: it's not clear if he [[WellIntentionedExtremist genuinely believes his actions for the greater good]], or if he is selfishly trying to preserve the lives of his race.]]
