* [[spoiler: Being a sadistic, hypocritical [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]], [[BigBad Dimitri Rascalov]] ]] from ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' is perhaps one of the best examples of a true sociopath played completely straight in the game. [[spoiler: This quote by Niko Bellic (in the Deal Ending) puts him best: ]]

to:

** [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Izanami]] is a classic Sociopath. She is charismatic, manipulative, and wickedly intelligent, even through her batshit insanity, but is simultaneously utterly bloodthirsty and utterly devoid of anything remotely resembling empathy.

** ''VideoGame/LuigisMansionDarkMoon'' has put [[BedsheetGhost King Boo]] in this category. His [[VideoGame/LuigisMansion debut appearance]] portrayed him as a WellIntentionedExtremist who wanted to [[AFatherToHisMen protect his fellow Boos]] despite his methods. His appearance in the sequel, however, shows that he's become so consumed with {{revenge}} that he'll [[TheUnfettered eliminate anyone or anything that gets in his path]], even sacrificing some of his Boos with no remorse. His worst act however, is when [[spoiler:he opens a Paranormal Portal to unleash an army of ghosts. The act would also cause Luigi's dimension to collapse]], putting King Boo on the same level as Dimentio in terms of sociopathy.

* ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' has [[spoiler:Mira]], who, despite seeming normal, is in fact entirely unable to understand emotions, something which drove her to becoming a brutal SerialKiller who cuts out people's hearts in an attempt to comprehend their feelings. She also doesn't care at all for [[spoiler:her boyfriend Eric]] and plans to kill him too. [[spoiler:In the epilogue files, though, it turned out that Eric convinced her to turn herself in, and she was honestly pondering how she could redeem herself]].

** The only version of him that ISN'T a sociopath is the Dr. Robotnik from The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog, and that's mostly due to being a comedy villain antagonist that is a {{Jerkass}} instead of a sociopath. Contrast with the SatAm version, who 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.

* Much like the above, [[spoiler:Goro Akechi]] in ''VideoGame/Persona5''. [[spoiler:He pretends to be a GreatDetective who solved many cases (which he himself set up), and, using that persona, infiltrates the Phantom Thieves to lure them to their downfall. Goro ultimately plans on enabling the head of TheConspiracy, to whom Goro is an illegitimate son, to achieve his goals, but then betraying him to bring about the end of his political career and force him to spend time with his son, without caring about all the death and suffering this would cause]].

* [[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 distrssingly successful]] contender in the CosmicChessGame that drives the series.
