* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', Shallan's brother Balat has a compulsion to hurt things, which he usually vents on small animals. Combined with the time he set the estate's servant quarters on fire, there's some indication that he's [[TheSociopath a psychopath]]. Unusually for the trope, he knows that something's wrong with him and takes great pains to avoid harming people, especially his loved ones; it's strongly implied that [[spoiler:the setting's GodOfEvil is causing or exacerbating his urges]].

The original TropeNamer is the author Creator/MarquisDeSade, who in his books used sexual sadism both for FetishFuel and for satirical ways of describing he hypocricy and injustice rampant in pre-revolution France. Back when psychiatry viewed all sexual minorities (including homosexuality) as "mental disorders", regular UsefulNotes/{{BDSM}} was considered pathological under the diagnoses "Sexual Sadism" and "Sexual Masochism". For a little while long ago (in an appendix to DSM III, but not included in the later versions DSM IV or DSM V), psychiatry also had a concept of non-sexual sadism as a mental disorder of its own. Sadist characters may or may not fit any diagnosis, or in the case of sympathetic characters be unfairly labeled with such a diagnosis.

He even takes the time to look right at Kirito and ''[[PsychoticSmirk smirk]]'' while doing so.

A sadist is quite capable of delving into StupidEvil if they take their joy for harming others over actually choosing the more intelligent decision.
