* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
** One of the game's party members in Conquest and Revelation is a Wolfskin (Human with Wolf ears and a tail) named Keaton. Being the opposite of the cleanly and vain Kitsune Kaden, Keaton always wears dirty clothes and never grooms himself. Most notably he has a habit of collecting worthless items that sometimes have morbid qualities such as decaying remains. He views traditionally valuable things like gems and gold as being uninteresting giving him a completely flipped perspective from that of a human or even a Kitsune. He was never capable of figuring out why his allies were repulsed by his collection and he even starts a feud with Arthur, who made the mistake of calling his collection "trash."

* EmilieAutumn is probably one of these, considering the subjects of most of her songs and the stories she creates in her concerts, songs and now a book about a Victorian BedlamHouse for little girls.

** [[spoiler:Main antagonist Bill Cipher is the definition of this trope. He gleefully tortures the bodies of those he possesses, like Dipper; finds [[ScrewySquirrel pulling the teeth from a live deer]] and a severed, always screaming heads as suitable ‘gifts’ for those who summoned him; and the complete [[TheEndOFTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destruction of the universe]] is similar to a college party to him. But then we have to remember that he is an EldritchAbomination from a [[AnotherDimension Nightmare World]] whose morals are essentially Blue and Orange.]]

** Arguably many of Machen's protagonists count as this to some degree or another, as they rarely have any personal stake in whatever supernatural unpleasantness is going on and are investigating it purely out of idle curiosity, while knowing full well that other men have been [[GoMadFromTheRevelation driven mad at the mirror glimpse]] of the thing they're actively looking for. Probably counts as AuthorAppeal as well, since Machen [[AuthorAvatar based most of these same protagonists on himself]].
