** Zamasu of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' shows this to various degrees, [[spoiler: in all his incarnations. Goku Black murdered Goku himself and then his family purely for the sake of being cruel after stealing the former's body, and then he and Future Zamasu reveal this to Goku after impaling him with a LaserBlade just to [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown rub salt in the wound]]. Also, the Present Zamasu who was killed by Beerus was positively ''delighted'' to discover the chaos Black and Future Zamasu had inflicted upon the future Earth, happy that his dream of a mortal-free universe was becoming a reality.]]

** Everyone in the Tartarus Guild who isn't [[TokenGoodTeammate Silver]] is a power-hungry monster that wants to slowly kill all humans in order to take pleasure in their rule over Earth. Special mention should go to [[MadBomber Jackal]], who loves presenting a SadisticChoice to a helpless wizard, and [[TortureTechnician Kyoka]], who submitted Erza to ColdBloodedTorture while enhancing her pain receptors.

Special mention should go to [[MadBomber Jackal]], who loves presenting a SadisticChoice to a helpless wizard, and [[TortureTechnician Kyoka]], who submitted Erza to ColdBloodedTorture while enhancing her pain receptors. This last one actually provokes Mard Geer into [[LaserGuidedKarma torturing Kyoka]], but not out of any [[EvenEvilHasStandards decency]]; rather, he's disgusted by the fact that Kyoka could find ''any'' pleasure, and from it a twisted liking, out of a [[HumansAreInsects race that is so pathetic they might as well be weeds on the roadside]].

* ''Manga/FairyTail''
** Pre-HeelFaceTurn Jellal and Laxus took great pride in dominating others with their incredible powers.
** [[PsychoForHire Zancrow]] loves torturing others for a cheap laugh, be it his opponents or [[BadBoss his own men]].

* AM from ''Videogame/IHaveNoMouthAndIMustScream'' is a supercomputer with amazing god-like powers who has held the last 5 living humans captive in his dungeon, keeping them alive for eternity while making them endure endless ColdBloodedTorture to entertain the eons of endless time he has in his new rule over Earth. Approximately, 90% of his dialogue is also KickTheDog moments and he actually says all he feels is hate.



* Mechakkara from ''WebOriginal/AtopTheFourthWall'' usually sports a sadistic grin on his face when he's harming Linkara.



* Mrs. Robinson from ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is a monstrous old lady who feasts off of the suffering of others. Her most prominent episode ''The Wicked'' outright shows the audience and characters that she amuses herself by poisoning animals, framing others for her crimes, kicking people then they're down, fooling others into letting their guard down before harming them, robbing people, vandalizing property, assaulting children, carjacking, disrupting the peace, attempting murder on a daily basis, making life a living Hell for all those around her, and drinking the tears of young children she bullies. The moment she truly crosses the MoralEventHorizon is when she purposely allows Darwin to ''choke to death'' while smiling and waving goodbye as she shuts her door on him. Even her own {{jerkass}} husband [[EvenEvilHasStandards is terrified of her cruelty]] and goes into a monologue about how she loves committing horrible things ForTheEvulz. She has no reason to act so cruel, but she just loves to make everyone suffer out pure joy.

* TheJoker is typically characterised this way as well. His original Golden Age incarnation was out simply to kill people and terrorize the city, and many later versions are if anything worse.

* TheJoker ComicBook/TheJoker is typically characterised this way as well. His original Golden Age incarnation was out simply to kill people and terrorize the city, and many later versions are if anything worse. Sometimes subverted however in that he's not out to just hurt others for [[ForTheEvulz its own sake]], but when [[ItAmusedMe it's funny to do so]]. For instance, in ''ComicBook/EmperorJoker'' he got annoyed when one of his minions killed Superman (who had been turned into a dog) because he didn't see any humor in it. In a ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' crossover he also teamed up with the [[OmnicidalManiac Dark Judges]], but quickly got bored with doing NOTHING other than kill people.

The {{Trope Namer|s}} comes from a RealLife disorder called [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadistic_personality_disorder sadistic personality disorder.]] The word sadism itself originates from the Creator/MarquisDeSade, who was the author (and practitioner) of some rather sadistic works. The specific disorder was removed from the referenced Diagnosis and Statistics Manual after the 3rd edition (or rather, demoted to the "Other" section), partly due to fears of legal abuse (ie. the disorder being misused as a valid InsanityDefence), partly because the criteria was deemed flawed due to lack of research in the area.

* SergioLeone's villains. Ramon and Esteban Rojo from ''Film/AFistfulOfDollars'', El Indio from ''Film/ForAFewDollarsMore'', Angel Eyes from ''Film/TheGoodTheBadAndTheUgly'', Frank from ''Film/OnceUponATimeInTheWest'', and Gunther Reza from ''Film/DuckYouSucker'' all enjoy hurting other people; for Indio and Frank in particular it is their whole ''raison d'etre''.

* The ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series is full of sadists, obviously being a CrapsackWorld:
** Catalina. She loves to cause misfortune or suffering to others, including sexual, and this is evident when she tortures C.J. for sexual pleasure.
** Tenpenny and Pulaski from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas''.
** Ray Bulgarin and Dimitri Rascalov from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV''.
** Heavily implied in protagonists like [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity Tommy Vercetti]] (he always has to make a slaughter butchering their victims with chainsaws), [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIVTheBalladOfGayTony Luis Lopez]] and [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV Trevor Phillips]].



* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Stewie Griffin in the earlier seasons.
** Even Brian has sadistic tendencies. He frequently kills and terrorizes squirrels for pure sadism. [[EvenEvilHasStandards This is a act that even shocks Stewie.]]
** [[BigBad Carter]] is even ''worse''. Although not an inventor nor showing a particularly murderous streak, he is often gleefully sadistic, particularly towards Peter, and is shown to keep a Rancor in a pit below his house in "Peterotica". Worse, he torments orphans ForTheEvulz.
** Jeff Fecalman from "[[Recap/FamilyGuyS10E3ScreamsOfSilenceTheStoryOfBrendaQ Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Q.]]" ''definitely'' qualifies as well. Unlike Peter and the other reoccurring [[{{Jerkass}} jerks]] of the show, he is known as one of the most evil villains of the show and has no redeeming qualities.
*** Ditto with Mike Pulaski from "A Fistful of Meg".
* Bender from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' has his moments. He has no qualms when he has the opportunity to hurt someone, and is very implied to enjoy doing that.



** Mr. Krabs, mainly during the Post-Movie era.

to:

** Mr. Krabs, mainly during the Post-Movie era.The Bikini Bottom people has sadistic tendencies in later seasons. This is evident in episodes like "No Hat For Pat" and "Spongicus".
* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is a complete AxCrazy, PsychoForHire, but also, very sadistic.
** The Almighty Tallests as well.
* Stevearino (Steve's evil clone) from ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is a good example. He sadistically tortures and kills cats for fun.
** Barry, when is not medicated.



* Ren Hoek from ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''.

to:

* Ren Hoek from ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. There have been several episodes where it is implied that he loves to inflict pain physic and psychologic of others and ''even himself''.

** Wanda himself is this in "A Bad Case Of Diary-Uh!", at the point of being an AxCrazy.
