* Abigail Brand, leader of SWORD, the space-focused equivalent of ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}. When an ambassador from another planet told her that his world's prophets predicted a mutant would destroy their planet, she let him bring Colossus BackFromTheDead and keep him as a guinea pig for a mutant cure rather than risk an interplanetary war. This kind of attitude does not endear her to the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, but they end up working together anyway.

* {{Thanos}} just wants to be loved by Mistress Death and if he has to destroy the whole universe, so be it.
* The UltimateMarvel version of TheHulk. In every way that Banner represses and limits himself; emotionally, sexually, socially, the Hulk has a complete lack of inhibition or limits. His only goal? Torment Banner. Banner refuses to eat meat. Hulk eats people. Banner doesn't act on his attraction to Betty Ross. Hulk keeps a harem of concubines.

* This is probably what keeps SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker from being viewed as a CompleteMonster (...sometimes...). Have to admire a comedian who will do anything for the joke. This was further expanded on in the alternate continuity ''ComicBook/{{Joker}} comic (which was told through the viewpoint of one of his new henchmen after his latest escape from Arkham): The Joker hates apologies. He hates the entire concept of apologising. He is thus able to commit to things (and commit things) with far more intensity and far more honesty than most of Gotham's inhabitants.

* ''Film/{{The Jungle Book 2016}}: Shere Khan. The reason everyone [[TheDreaded fears]] him is not just his [[LightningBruiser vast]] [[ImplacableMan power]], but his perfect willingness to [[TheSociopath violate]] the jungle law when it suits him.

* A defining trait of the Gorn in the StarTrekNovelVerse. Once the Gorn have an objective, nothing comes between them and achieving it. Anything that does is brushed aside, ignored or destroyed.

* Jomy in ''TowardTheTerra'' turns into one after [[spoiler: the destruction of Nazca]]. He leads the Mu to war, gives Tony the okay to [[spoiler: kill surrendering soldiers]] and is ready to abandon [[spoiler: a station full of Mu hostages]]. Many Mu feel disgusted by these actions. Fortunately, he gets better.

Added DiffLines:

* [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Carnage]] believes that life has no purpose, laws are illusions, and once you start believing and accepting that, you can truly be happy. Add the fact that he has a Symbiote partner and you have one of the most dangerous {{Serial Killer}}s in Marvel.
* Madcap is another Marvel villain like this, a former student in Biblical studies who survived an accident that killed his entire class, while at the same time, gaining powerful regenerative powers from a chemical created by the criminal organization AIM. Unable to understand why he should benefit from an accident that killed all his colleges, he went nuts and figured nothing has any meaning. DependingOnTheWriter he ranges from a LaughablyEvil nuisance to an AxeCrazy sociopath.

* In ''Franchise/TheTerminator'', the titular cyborgs are generally programmed for one thing--often to either kill or protect a particular person--and will never stop in pursuance of that goal. If you blow one of them in half, it will ''crawl'' towards its target.

** Two of Lincoln's most successful commanders could also show some of these traits. While Ulysses S. Grant ''started'' as AFatherToHisMen, ''ended'' as AFatherToHisMen, but during the later stages of the Civil War, was noted for a high level of tactical and strategic ruthlessness. There was also Sherman, who concluded that WarIsHell and thus finishing it as quickly as possible by nearly any means was the best course, resulting in a campaign of devastation so destructive it's still a cause for rancor in some places ''today'', a century and a half after it actually happened!
