* ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' has SelfDemonsrating/TheJoker, as usual. Or rather, his Injustice counterpart. The Joker in the game proper is more of a NominalHero and doesn't get much screen time. But his Injustice counterpart take the sociopath trope UpToEleven. He is the direct cause for all of the misery that happens in the game. Five years prior to the game, [[spoiler:he planted a trigger for a nuclear bomb placed in the heart of Metropolis in a pregnant Lois Lane designed to go off the instant her heart stops beating. He also drugged Superman with Krytonite-laced fear toxin, causing him to see Lois as Doomsday and kill her by dragging her into space so that the deaths of Lois, his unborn child, and all of Metropolis were on his hands.]] And the reason behind this horrific act? [[EvilIsPetty He was tired of his constant defeats to Batman and wanted an easier opponent.]] [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal While the Joker ultimately pays for it with his life]]]], his actions caused Superman to develop a zero-tolerance policy towards crime and ultimately turns the Man of Steel into an even ''worse'' monster than he was. The fact that the Joker [[spoiler:[[DieLaughing gives one final laugh as he dies]]]] shows he was fully aware of this fact.

* ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'''s protagonist, Agent 47, is a sociopathic clone who is also the best assassin the ICA, Agent 47's employer, has at its disposal. He [[PragmaticVillainy tries to avoid unnecessary deaths, but that is only out of professional pride and a desire to avert suspicion]]; he will [[OmnicidalManiac murder anybody]] [[DisproportionateRetribution who inconveniences him]]. The only person 47 refuses to kill is [[spoilers:his handler and friend Diana Burnwood, instead choosing to wound her in order to fake her death.]]

* Possibly Kotomine Kirei of ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight''. He describes himself as never feeling happiness from the happiness of others, only finding joy in their pain and suffering, and being incapable of loving someone else. Interestingly, because he was born to a very religious man, he considers himself a "defective person" and spent most of his life trying to "fix" himself, only to give up ten years before the story. His ultimate goal is to try to understand why a good and loving God would create a seemingly inherently evil person such as himself. He is definitely cunning and manipulative, an excellent liar when he wants to be (he prefers to amuse himself with BrutalHonesty), and is charming in his own way, although the story's protagonist takes an instant dislike to him. [[spoiler:Said [[BrokenHero protagonist]] later realizes that he actually ''does'' like Kotomine, and that the reason he immediately felt a twinge of distaste was because he realized that he [[NotSoDifferent subconsciously saw a BIT too much of himself]] in Kotomine.]]

** Gilgamesh. He has the limited emotional affect, LackOfEmpathy, [[TheHedonist need for stimulation]], consummate lying and manipulation abilities, lack of shame or fear, and an inflated ego.

** The [=SatAm=] version not only plays being a sociopath straight, but lacks ANY of the comedic attributes that his other incarnations have while being the only version of Dr. Eggman that actually SUCCEEDED in taking over the world as part of the show's backstory.

** The [=SatAm=] version and ''SonicUnderground'' versions not only plays play being a sociopath straight, but lacks ANY of the comedic attributes that his other incarnations have while being the only have. The ''SonicUnderground'' version of Dr. Eggman that actually SUCCEEDED is particularly merciless and is willing to imprison, roboticise and kill any and all who oppose him in taking over the world slightest, not to mention he has banned music as part of an additional measure to suppress freedom. Both have successfully enslaved the show's backstory.planet.

* [[EldritchAbomination Ahg-za-Haru]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is a god-sized vortex of remorseless selfishness that exists to gratify its immediate desires at the expense of everyone else in the multiverse. It's a [[CrapsackWorld distressingly successful]] contender in the CosmicChessGame that drives the series.

* ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin2'' has [[MadArtist Stefano Valentini]] whom Yukiko regards as a clinical psychopath. [[FauxAffablyEvil He talks and acts like a cultured gentleman,]] but who murders and butchers dozens of people and turn their bodies into disgusting and morbid art exhibits with [[LackOfEmpathy no remorse.]] In fact, he probably even a [[EvilerThanThou bigger]] sociopath than the aforementioned ''Ruvik'' as the latter at least had a [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes sister whom he loved]], while Stefano has no such attachments and only cares about [[ItsAllAboutMe supplementing his ego]] and indulging in his twisted view of "art".

* ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' [[BigBad Ruvik]]. Showed sociopathic tendencies at first by dissecting animals, and when Laura was assumed to have died, moving on to people. His response to Dr. Jimenez's horror about the victims of his traps seals the deal on this one:
