* CompleteMonster: The truly despicable main character [[VillainProtagonist Patrick Bateman]] is a vapid, {{greed}}y, Manhattanite stock broker by day, and a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]] and {{serial killer}} by night. He [[WouldHitAGirl murders and tortures women]] in the most sexually {{sadist}}ic and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath horrific ways]] imaginable, callously kills his colleagues over the [[EvilIsPetty pettiest of slights]], [[ImAHumanitarian eats the brains of some of his victims]] and [[ILoveTheDead experiments with the corpses]], and actually thinks [[WouldHurtAChild murdering a child]] isn't evil ''enough'' because he wants the death to affect more people. He eventually goes on a destructive rampage through the city, killing several cops and numerous innocents who get in his way. While the story plays with the notion of whether [[UnreliableNarrator all the events happened as described]], the novel and its [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie adaptation]] [[TropeCodifier completely construct the idea of the Complete Monster]]. Bateman himself eventually [[CardCarryingVillain concludes that he is a walking nightmare whose inhumanity and cruelty know no bounds]], and whose only discernable emotions are pride, hatred, and disgust.
-->"My personality is sketchy and unformed, my heartlessness goes deep and is persistent. My conscience, my pity, my hopes disappeared a long time ago (probably at Harvard) if they ever did exist. There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it, I have now surpassed."

* CompleteMonster: The truly despicable main character [[VillainProtagonist Patrick Bateman]] is a vapid, {{greed}}y, Manhattanite [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain despicable]] and {{narcissist}}ic [[AxCrazy psychopath]] who moonlights as a horrific [[SerialKiller mass murderer]] while keeping up his public image as a [[MorallyBankruptBanker stock broker by day, broker]]. Bateman's career of torture and a remorseless [[TheSociopath sociopath]] and {{serial killer}} by night. He murder having started for [[ForTheEvulz no discernible reason]], his most frequent act of depravity is luring [[WouldHitAGirl murders and tortures women]] in the most sexually {{sadist}}ic to his apartment, then brutally [[SerialRapist raping]] and [[CruelAndUnusualDeath horrific ways]] imaginable, callously kills his colleagues over butchering them in the [[EvilIsPetty pettiest most horrifying ways he can imagine]]. Be it nailing them to the floor, lopping their heads off, or bisecting them with a chainsaw, Bateman indulges in every act of slights]], sick cruelty he can muster, and even delves into [[ImAHumanitarian eats the brains of some cannibalizing his victims]]. Bateman's evil is so [[EvilIsPetty petty]] and unpredictable that he disembowels vagrants after giving them pep talks, [[AnAxeToGrind takes an axe]] to one of his victims]] associates for, among other slights, having a better business card than him, and [[ILoveTheDead experiments with the corpses]], and actually thinks tortures defenseless animals. One of his crowning moments of vileness comes when Bateman [[SlashedThroat slashes]] a [[WouldHurtAChild murdering child]]'s throat, then pretends to be a child]] doctor trying to save him, just to see how it feels, quickly deciding it isn't evil ''enough'' because he wants the death to affect more people. He eventually goes on a destructive rampage through the city, as fulfilling as killing several cops someone who has lived a full life and numerous innocents who get in thus loses more when he ends them. After going on a slaughter spree throughout his way. While city, gunning down every one he sees, Bateman comes to the story plays with the notion of whether [[UnreliableNarrator all the events happened as described]], the novel and its [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie adaptation]] [[TropeCodifier conclusion that he is completely construct and totally wicked with no capability of care or compassion for others. Though the idea that some of the Complete Monster]]. his crimes were imagined by him is implied, Bateman's character is nevertheless pure evil. Driven by his sadism and pathological desire to be important, Patrick Bateman himself eventually [[CardCarryingVillain concludes that fully earns the various terms he is referred to as: an inhuman, a walking nightmare whose inhumanity ghoul, and cruelty know no bounds]], and whose only discernable emotions are pride, hatred, and disgust.
