* Homura Akemi from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' shows a few traits of a textbook psychopath, among traits of emotional abuse towards her target, Madoka Kaname. Read about it [[http://villaininglasses.tumblr.com/post/99325168365/matsurisunrise-lustfuldemoness here]].
** Still, it's clear that she started out as a perfectly sweet and ''{{adorkable}}'' middle school girl. It took a [[BreakTheCutie massive amount of trauma]] make her what she is, so her [[HeroicBSOD crazy]] is more justified than most.

* Nakago in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' will go to any means to achieve his goal of godhood, and manipulates anyone who can advance his goals, and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness kills]] them when they are of no use to him. He manipulates Yui into making him a god, and knows that she would be eaten by Seiryuu after wards, and kills one of the Seiryu warriors when he has no other need of him.

** [[spoiler: Frieza's U6 counterpart, Frost, is just as terrible. He shows no remorse or empathy about starting wars that kill millions and then plays hero before selling the planets he destroys for profit, making him a classic BitchInSheepsClothing. He uses his NiceGuy facade to gain powerful supporters for his cause like the Saiyans and uses his resources to help the children of the people he indirectly murdered. He even tries to manipulate the God of Destruction to his cause, who was completely fooled by Frost's entire act. To top it all off, when he is caught, he brags about what he has done, all with a smug smile on his face. In many ways, he's worse and more dangerous than Frieza since he rules through charm instead of fear]].

The only things that make him better than Frieza are the fact that [[SanityHasAdvantages he's not insane and knows when to call it quits]], is ''not'' a {{Sadist}} and [[NoNonsenseNemesis prefers to avoid dragging things out and actually finishing fights]], and actually has some concept of honor, given that [[FaceDeathWithDignity when he thought the assassin Hit would kill him he surrendered with only a quiet curse]], whereas Frieza would have [[RageQuit tried to blow the planet up they were on out of spite]]]].

** Vegeta's pre-CharacterDevelopment self. Unlike the other Saiyans shown in the series who have some care towards their kinsmen, Vegeta didn't give a damn about anyone except himself. He dismisses reviving Raditz for being weak and personally murdered Nappa who was asking for his help. He also tries to slowly crush Goku to death as a Great Ape and then tries to kill Goku in front of his son. On Namek, he's confused about why Dende won't heal him, despite the fact that he personally killed an entire village of Namekians for their Dragon Ball (which he actually laughs about later), and doesn't understand why [[EvilCannotComprehendGood anyone would want to help him since he knows that he's an asshole]]. That's not even getting into how he treated Future Trunks, [[AbusiveParent who he physically and mentally abused]]. It takes a lot of {{Humiliation Conga}}s, BreakTheHaughty, and {{Laser Guided Karma}}s before he finally becomes a better person.

* In ''[[LightNovel/YoujoSenki Youjo Senki: Saga Of Tanya The Evil]]'' we have the titular character herself, who has virtually zero empathy for others and makes no acts of kindness that aren't meant to further her own career in some way; the few moral conflicts she has in the light novel have minimal impact on her actions and are cut entirely from the manga and anime. She casually sends upstart soldiers under her command to their death without a second thought, and tries using her childish demeanor to guilt trip and manipulate a captain into retiring early to eliminate him as a competitor. Everything she does comes back to her goal of climbing the ranks and landing herself in a safe rear-line position, and she never looks back on her actions with remorse. Interestingly, this and the fact that her mindset effectively comes from almost a century ahead of the setting also result in constant miscommunications and misinterpreting the actions of others.
