** 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.

* The ''Manga/DragonBall'' franchise gives us a whole host of sociopaths:

** To the extent that they can be judged by human standards, most of [[BloodKnight the Saiyans]] meet all the criteria of true {{sociopath}}s: they are violent, ruthless, insensitive, egoscentric, petty, self-centered, extremely proud, and have poor impulse control. However, this seems to be a merely cultural thing on the part of the race, since both Vegeta and Tarble have shown traits of kindness.

** Selfish, possessing no form of remorse or compassion, ''extremely'' sadistic and violent, and a ''giant'' MoodSwinger to boot, Kid Buu is '''''the''''' ultimate example of a low-functioning Sociopath not only in this series, but possibly in anime and manga in general.

** Her brother Neil is no better - not only is he just as selfish and uncaring about hurting other people, but toward the end of the series, he develops a VillainousCrush on Candy, and it's just as shallow and selfish as Eliza's on Terence, not to mention obsessive to the point where he attempts to lock her in a house with him and never release her until she agreed to be his lover.

** Since it's a manga about pirates, ''One Piece'' is full of sociopaths. Kuro, Morgan, Krieg, Spandam, etc... It's actually harder to find a villainous character who's NOT a sociopath than one who is.

** Katejina Loos, of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]'', is an interesting CharacterDevelopment example. She starts out as one of the heroic main cast with Uso. However, even then, you could see signs of her true nature rising to the surface. After she is captured by the Empire, she charms her way into joining the BESPA and manipulates everyone else around her. She then turns against the Federation Forces and tries to kill Uso on multiple occasions. [[spoiler: She kills off five of the established cast members.]] She does all this to fuel her own ego and to take advantage of any situation given to her.

However, even then, you could see signs of her true nature condition rising to the surface.

She then turns against the Federation Forces and tries to kill Uso on multiple occasions. [[spoiler: She kills off five of the established cast members.]] She does all this to fuel her own ego and to take advantage of any situation given to her. Supplementary materials confirm that part of this is due to [[BrainwashedAndCrazy mind-altering substances]], though...while always something of a sociopath, Katejina wouldn't have become evil had she not [[LoveMakesYouEvil fallen for Chronicle.]]



** [[spoiler:Ryuko]] is briefly turned into a sociopath as a result of [[spoiler:Ragyo {{brainwash|ed and crazy}}ing her]]. Her already fierce battling style is now driven by an AxCrazy personality, and she has no problems killing the ones she once considers friends, believing that [[ItsAllAboutMe they're trying to destroy what makes her happy]].

In short, an ideal daughter for Ragyo, just like Nui.

** Misa Amane, too. The histrionic kind. In one of her earliest appearances she's quite calmly contemplating how to kill Rem just because it would probably be more convenient. The fact that she fiercely and insanely pair-bonds to Light doesn't actually make her less of a psychopath, it just makes her one with poor self-esteem.
** [[BlueAndOrangeMorality To the extent that he can be judged by human standards]], the shinigami Ryuk fits a great deal of the criteria. He sets the plot of the series in motion when he deliberately drops his Death Note into the human world [[ItAmusedMe just to see the results]], and when Light himself acquires the notebook, he makes it clear that if he doesn't provide entertainment through continuing to cause carnage and mischief, his own death won't be far behind. Light himself is eager to oblige for his own reasons, but while Ryuk sometimes expresses surprise at the depths Light will sink to, it's always with amusement or appreciation, never condemnation. Throughout the series, Ryuk never quite reaches Light's level of active evil, and in fact often serves as comic relief, but his role as an amoral eager observer is never obscured. [[spoiler: In the end, he makes good on his promise to kill Light when he outlives his entertainment value, and despite Light's pleas, shows not a trace of remorse in doing so.]]
