* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'''s theme centers around bring these types to justice through HeelFaceBrainwashing via "stealing their hearts," the worst of these being [[spoiler:Masayoshi Shido, a member of the National Diet]] who acts humble and generous towards the public but actually sees himself as the only person worthy of leading Japan, looks down on everyone else including his subordinates, uses and disposes of people like tissue paper, and refuses to accept responsibility for any events that might hold him back from his ultimate goal.

One need look no further than both Wild Cards -- "Joker" and Goro Akechi -- to see how casually this man ruins lives without a shred of remorse[[spoiler:; the latter moreso, being Shido's illegitimate son]].

* Kefka Palazzo from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' has no understanding of morality, no impulse control, manipulates the emotions of others, is a rampant liar, and resorts to ever greater extremes to slake his thirst for destruction. Kefka ticks all the boxes. All of this is before he becomes a god.

* ''VideoGame/ AssassinsCreedSyndicate'' gives us [[BombThrowingAnarchist Maxwell Roth.]] He first appears charming enough to get Jacob Frye onto his side with reasoning that he doesn't like [[BigBad Crawford Starrick]] giving him orders. Then he shows his true colors in a mission where he attempts to burn a factory full of child workers inside. When Jacob Frye saves the children, Roth decides to burn down a theatre full of innocent people. It has even been stated before that when Roth is angry, that means a lot of people will suffer. Worst of all, when he is finally assassinate [[FaceDeathWithDignity he still feels satisfied,]] while also showing no remorse or empathy for all the evil that he has done.

*** And then Dream Drop Distance reveals [[spoiler: that all the nobodies had the potential to grow new hearts and feel emotions all along. Bringing this trope UpToEleven with Xemnas, the one who lied to them and made them believe they were Sociopaths all in order to manipulate them and gain control of their minds, hearts and bodies. And though he acts the most emotionless of them all, he likely had Terra's heart all along meaning he was just naturally an uncaring monster.]]

* [[spoiler: Being a sadistic, hypocritical [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] with zero remorse, [[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: ]]

* Arcturus Mengsk from StarCraft. Reviewing his key personality traits is like reading through a sociopath diagnostic checklist: superficial charm, a grandiose sense of self, pathological lying, a penchant for manipulating others to achieve his own ends, an absolutely '''''astonishing''''' lack of empathy or remorse for any of his actions, and an insatiable lust for power and dominance that drives his every move. He unleashed the Zerg on a planet populated by ''billions'' of people just to overthrow a few hundred individuals at most and establish himself as the preeminent political figure among the Terrans of the Koprulu sector. He has no qualms whatsoever about sacrificing those closest to him if it suits his purposes.
