** Ange's [[CainAndAbel evil brother]] [[BigBadWannabe Julio]] is one as well. He is willing to do anything to get what he wants and ascend to the throne of Mitsurugi, which he considers to be his by right. Resenting his middle sister Ange for having been made heir, he outs her as a Norma during the crowning ceremony, [[FantasticRacism causing her to become a pariah]] and be sent off to Arzenal to become little more than CannonFodder in a ForeverWar against the Dragons. He cares nothing for his mother's HeroicSacrifice during the ensuing chaos, and later [[SelfMadeOrphan has his own father executed]] in order to solidify his rule, and [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates]] [[CorruptTheCutie his youngest sister Sylvia]] into blaming Ange for all of this. He also has a very poor impulse control, and [[PsychopathicManchild whines like a spoiled brat]] whenever things don't go his way, taking increasingly extreme actions to destroy what stands in his way.

* [[DracoInLeatherPants Despite some]] [[BrokenBase fan objection]], this sums up Griffith from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}''. His high intelligence and charismatic and charming nature allows him to be quite ruthless behind closed doors, and he's fully aware of any line that he crosses so long as it brings him closer to his goal. Funny thing is that [[RedOniBlueOni his counterpart]], [[TheProtagonist Guts]], is himself a bit of a [[SociopathicHero psychopath]], but he has a working moral compass that prevents him from going that [[MoralEventHorizon extra mile of no return.]]

** Wyald is a far more low-functioning example than Griffith and Emperor Ganishka, as he is extremely impulsive and always pursuing instant gratification for himself with no respect for the lives or well-being of others, or [[TooDumbToLive even his own]].

* While her behavior is usually PlayedForLaughs, Tabane Shinonono in ''LightNovel/InfiniteStratos'' shows several traits of a sociopath: she does things and takes decisions (including but not limited to [[spoiler:aiding a terrorist organization threaten the safety of society]]) on the basis of [[ItAmusedMe how much fun she gets out of them]], consequences be damned; she has [[InsufferableGenius a grandiose ego]] and a need for it to be constantly fed; she cares about no one that isn't herself or her right-hand woman Chloe (it is often shown that despite her [[GenkiGirl upbeat attitude]], she is a very hard person to like); and she can be very [[TheChesmaster manipulative]] [[BrilliantButLazy when she puts her mind to it]]. Although she does seem to care about her sister Houki (who rather understandably dislikes her), Chiyufu and [[TheHero Ichika]], she also has no qualms about endangering them as her whims dictate.

** Frieza carries all the traits of a classic, narcissistic sociopath. He is utterly incapable of empathy or remorse, manipulates others with a smile, impulsive and tends to do things without thinking, incredibly sadistic and violent, and is driven by staggering arrogance and never takes responsibility for his actions nor does he learn from his mistakes. He is also unable to be redeemed unlike most villains in the series because he's utterly unable and unwilling to overcome his pride and spite... [[spoiler:Sure, he took a lot of {{Humiliation Conga}}s over the years to even become '''remotely''' respectful towards the Z-Fighters at the end of Super.]]

** Even though Sakyo is still a sociopath, he remembers his happy childhood with a warm fondness, genuinely loved his family ("My parent were decent and kind people; it was what you could call an ideal family") and blamed nobody but himself for how he turned out, [[DubText the English dub added a lot of changes to his narration]], making him hate his parents and swearing he would kill himself if he became a white-collar worker.

** From what we've seen of Champa, he seems to be the same high-functioning sociopath as Beerus, although his impulse issues are not nearly as bad. [[LackOfEmpathy He care for little outside his own wants]], thinks his team are nothing but pawns to the gods, and treats Vados even worse than Beerus treats Whis. He was also ready to [[spoiler: kill his entire team for the [[SoreLoser shame of losing to U7]] and he did this all while gloating with an EvilLaugh]]. However, much like Beerus, being a sociopath doesn't make him necessarily evil, but gives him a [[BlueAndOrangeMorality complicated moral code]] since he does show [[EveryoneHasStandards some level of care]] when he hears that Frost is fighting to help children, and he's [[spoiler: disturbed and angry when he learns that Frost is really an underground planet broker]]. But he then turns around and promises to support Frost if he defeats Vegeta, since he ''really'' wants to beat Beerus during the tournament, although he doesn't care when Frost loses.

But any sort of friendship at all is seemingly beyond Champa, not even the tenuous and unequal sort that Beerus has formed with Whis and Goku.
