->'''Wyvern Rhadamanthys:''' This time I will rip out your heart!\\
'''Scorpio Kardia:''' My heart? Perfect! That is... what I've always wanted. An opponent able... ''to ignite my heart!''
-->-- ''Manga/SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas'' #105

Some fight for honor, others glory, and a few [[BloodKnight just for the thrill of fighting]].

Then there are ''these'' people.

The Combat Sadomasochist enjoys the pain from combat wounds, both their own and others'. When cut, stabbed or shot, they will moan in ecstasy and [[HemoErotic lap up the blood]]. After harming an opponent, and especially when they take a life, the sensation and expression on their face will be orgasmic. Their battle style will usually be intense and [[DanceBattler dance-like]], and they usually eschew efficiently killing enemies in favor of doing so in the most painful way possible. Expect this character to use the DeliberateInjuryGambit a lot. If the Combat Sadomasochist wins the battle and there are enemy survivors they won't receive the Geneva Convention treatment of [=POWs.=] If said survivors are languishing or in pain and ask for a merciful (or at least swift) death, they'll dawdle just a bit to make them squirm by sticking fingers in wounds or shooting/stabbing them some more.

They probably evolve from a thrill seeker who craves combat adrenaline, but usually also have or develop another fetish along with this. Naturally, these types tend to be TooKinkyToTorture; even if they ''do'' feel pain, they're too warped to register it as something bad. Nor do they fear death, since most perceive it as the ultimate rush. However, as extreme [[TheHedonist hedonists]], they can be intimidated with the threat of a long life of bland painlessness.

If a hero has this trait, he's often an AntiHero or a SociopathicHero who [[SmitingEvilFeelsGood limits his violence to bad guys]] (or [[PayEvilUntoEvil worse guys than them]], at least). If a bad guy has this trait (and it's usually a bad guy who has this, as enjoyment of other people's pain in battle is a rather villainous trait), he's usually some kind of PsychoForHire and often AxCrazy.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Pictured is Kakihara from ''Manga/IchiTheKiller'', who is an extreme masochist yakuza. However, his last fight shows that [[EveryoneHasStandards he has his limits.]]
* Slan in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}.'' The only thing that Guts accomplishes by impaling her with the Dragon Slayer and blowing off half her torso with his ArmCannon turns out to be ''giving her an orgasm''. Yikes.
* Dark Marik of ''Anime/YuGiOh'' is the embodiment of this trope, despite the fact that he fights via a [[MemeticMutation children's card game]]. His whole deck style is based around torturing his opponent's monsters before killing them, and he uses magic to make his opponent feel the pain as well, and often gets around to torturing his opponents directly before too long. In addition to his extreme sadism, he's also a bona fide masochist - he begs his opponents to spice up the duel by hitting him or cutting him. Most of his dialogue consists of ranting about pain and suffering, and when he's attacked by Obelisk the Tormentor and nearly killed, his response is to burst out laughing.
** Yubel of ''Anime/YuGiOhGX''. [[AmbiguousGender They]] have been shown to have an enormously warped and sadomasochistic view of love: because love, in part, is sharing feelings, both joy and suffering, Yubel therefore legitimizes Jaden's suffering as "true love". Yubel feels they have suffered greatly due to their time in space and the crash into the Earth that caused them to lose most of their body, and desires to share that suffering with Jaden. To that end, they go out their way to make him suffer. They also openly welcome Jaden's insults and defiance, seeing the pain they suffer as Jaden expressing his "love".
** [[FreakOut Hell]] [[BloodKnight Kaiser]] [[BrokenAce Ryo]] counts too. He duels with [[ElectricTorture shock collars]] and clearly enjoys himself while doing so.
* This is Devo the Cursed's gimmick in ''[[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders]]''. He incites his opponents to attack him as hard as they can, then uses the pain their attacks cause to violently strike back by using his stand, Ebony Devil, to possess a CreepyDoll.
* This sums up Gauron from ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic'' quite nicely. Put him against Sousuke and sweet Jesus does he take this UpToEleven. Normally, towards anyone and everyone, he's a huge sadist. It's even {{lampshaded}} several times in the novels that he derives a sick, perverted sort of pleasure from getting other people to submit to him, as well as from cutting them up or causing them any other sort of pain (be it [[MindRape emotional]] or [[AxCrazy physical]]). When Sousuke is brought into the picture, however, he displays ''hardcore'' masochistic tendencies - to the point where he seems to feel that the ultimate pleasure would be to have them die together. During every fight between the two of them, Gauron gets ''very'' turned on. In the novels, he even mentions that during one of their fights, he felt... [[{{Squick}} disturbing]] impulses to kill and rape Sousuke. In that order.
* Hidan in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' uses this and his "immortality" as his gimmick. It's even heavily implied that he achieved an orgasm when he stabbed himself through (which was also the lethal blow for [[spoiler: Asuma]]).
* [[BigBad Creed]] from ''Manga/BlackCat'', whenever he fights with Train. Even his ''clothes'' are something from a sadomasochist's wardrobe. Though he's heavily more on the "masochist" side when he's against Train - he ''loves'' it when Train beats the crap out of him and they end up in compromising positions (including one instance where he ''orgasms'' when Train beat him up and accidentally ended up spread-legged on top of him). However, he shows no desire to physically harm Train, and in fact, one of his [[BerserkButton Berserk Buttons]] is if anyone ''dares'' to try to put a scratch on Train's "beautiful face".
* Takuma Fudou from ''Manga/GetBackers''. He's definitely a huge sadist towards all of his targets, though his most consistent [[StalkerWithACrush object of obsession]] (and therefore sadomasochistic tendencies) is towards Ban. His greatest desire is for Ban to "give his body to him", "meet his desires", "quench his thirst" and "let him enjoy himself" - which means getting ripped apart by Fudou. But Fudou shows numerous times that he doesn't get pleasure simply from sadistically cutting up Ban - he actually ''likes it more'' when Ban cuts him up and puts up a fight as well. He also shows his masochistic tendencies when he mentions that he kept his own rotting arm with him, reminding himself of what Ban did to him, which gave him "incredible chills rising up throughout his body". As well as an instance where, when Ban wasn't putting up enough of a fight, Fudou started ''[[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/get_backers/v09/c001.2/93.html cutting himself up on the chest]]'', screaming at Ban to "make him bleed" and "push him to the edge."
* Road Kamelot of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' is a sweet little girl who likes to play. Unfortunately for the heroes, her definition of 'play' involves blood, sadism and torture both physical and [[MindRape mental]]. She seems to enjoy the taste of blood, if her happily licking Allen's blood from a sharpened birthday candle is any indication. She also has no qualms with allowing herself to be [[HealingFactor temporarily mutilated]] by Innocence, or even intentionally running herself through just to watch Allen's reaction.
* In ''Anime/MichikoToHatchin'', the title character insinuates that her rival Atsuko used to get aroused whenever Michiko would beat her up when they were younger.
* Fasalina from ''Anime/GunXSword'' [[OrgasmicCombat sounds like she's having an orgasm]] both when inflicting damage with her mech and when being attacked by someone else's.
* Two particularly nuts Contractors in ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' might fit. Wei has a BloodyMurder power which he uses through frequently cutting himself, which he does in a completely nonchalant manner. He's also a sadist if the slasher smiles and slurping up his own blood are any indication. Gemna makes a comment about wanting to find a woman that would hurt him and takes a clear pleasure in killing people in horrible ways.
* Gorobei Katayama from the anime ''Anime/SamuraiSeven'' appears to get turned on twice in the series: once from almost being shot in the forehead by an arrow with minor bleeding, then during a fight with the yakan/Nobuseri when a bullet grazes his cheek, also drawing blood.
* Alucard from ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' seems to enjoy being harmed. He has a habit of allowing his opponent to rip him to bloody pieces, only to [[GoodThingYouCanHeal regenerate from stuff]] that ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} wouldn't bounce back from before subjecting his opponent to a fast but drawn out, agonizing death that involves lots of dismemberment and impaling.
** The Major is also like this. In his infamous "I Love War!" speech, he makes it clear that getting utterly defeated and crushed by the opponent is just as exciting to him as being the one doing the crushing.
* Shira from ''Manga/BladeOfTheImmortal''. When he fights he deliberately goes for the limbs to incapacitate the enemy, uses a saw/sword to torture them. When his hand got cut off, he carved the flesh off his bones so he could use the bones as a weapon.
* One of the knights from ''Manga/{{MAR}}, Candice, fights using an ärm that gives her more magical energy the more she's damaged, then changes the opponent to stone. It's creepier than it sounds.
* In her battle with Roy Mustang, Lust in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' combines flirting with trying to kill him, even as he keeps killing her. At one point, she comments "Didn't anyone tell you it's rude to put your hand between a woman's breasts?"- at this time, Roy is [[KillItWithFire setting her on fire]], and also has his hand inside of her chest, trying to destroy her Philosopher's Stone. As she dies, she makes a comment about kind of appreciating being killed by a strong man like him.
** Are we just not going to mention the scene in Brotherhood where Kimbley just stars lapping the blood off of his hand?
* Tsukuyomi in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. ''Seriously,'' she is creepy.
* ''Manga/OnePiece:''
** Sadie, one of the Impel Down jailers, fits this pretty well. As befits her name, she enjoys dishing it out to both prisoners and her subordinates alike. She also has the dominatrix look in full, whip included.
** Kaido, one of the Four Emperors, has an entire ''squad'' of such people, who are called the Pleasures. They'll smile and laugh even as they are being beaten into a pulp.
* Arthur of ''Manga/AirGear''.
* Virid in ''Manga/ThereBeyondTheBeyond''. There's a ''reason'' he's called the Mad Prince.
* Papillon of ''Manga/BusouRenkin'' is one of the saner examples of this (and more of a masochist than sadist), but he has shown what seems like arousal in reaction to injury, and on the sadist front, look at his commentary after eating his family.
* Kyotada Inui of ''Manga/{{Psyren}}''.
* Alan Gabriel of ''Anime/TheBigO'' seemed to enjoy Roger beating on him far too much to be healthy.
* Belphegor of ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn''. During their battle, Gokudera manages to hit him with one of his bombs. Belphegor simply sits up while making somewhat orgasmic noises and muttering excitedly "I was hurt again. It's so thrilling!" He also seemed to take great pleasure in trying to cut Gokudera and, in his words, "turn him into a cactus".
* Grell Sutcliffe of ''Manga/BlackButler''. She revels in the blood and pain of herself and others, ''especially'' if the pain is being inflicted to her by her beloved ''Sebas-chan~!''
* In ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'' we have more than a couple of {{Blood Knight}}s, but there are few people who fit ''this'' trope.
** One is [[spoiler: Minatsuki]]. Well, at least before her fight with Ganta. Afterwards, she becomes a SociopathicHero with a HairTriggerTemper that you only mess with if you have a death wish. ''Beforehand'', though... let's just say the words "violence", "blood", "injury", "turn on", and "orgasm" can be pieced together in a sentence to describe her quite accurately. Fortunately, Yoh is her MoralityChain at the moment.
** Also, we have Genkaku, who ''didn't'' get a HeelFaceTurn. Unlike [[spoiler: Minatsuki]] who simply wanted to fight, not caring who, when, where, or what, Genkaku was pure evil, with ''his'' MoralityChain broken looong ago. Even taking into account that this is Deadman Wonderland, home of the DysfunctionJunction, Genkaku's past is [[DarkAndTroubledPast so completely and utterly fucked up]] (beaten to near death, raped repeatedly...), that you can consider his youth as one long line of BreakTheCutie moments. When that kitten died was when [[spoiler: [[BodyHorror he sculpted a Buddha statue out of the body parts of his tormentors]]]].
* ''Manga/HajimeNoIppo'': Ryuuhei Sawamura.
** And he ''still'' has nothing on Brian Hawk.
* Stein and Medusa engage in a bit of this during their [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence fight]] in ''Manga/SoulEater''. Spirit reckons Stein is simple to understand, being a 'hedonistic sadist'. Worth pointing out that he's the EquippableAlly being used to cut the witch to bits and so is party to the [[{{Squick}} whole thing]].
* Jakotsu from ''Manga/InuYasha''. He has a ''massively'' disturbing [[StalkerWithACrush crush]] on Inuyasha; throughout the arc, whenever they encountered each other, Jakotsu would call dibs on his [[CreepySouvenir adorable doggie ears]], and during their final confrontation in Mount Hakurei, Inuyasha [[ShapeshifterModeLock turns]] [[BroughtDownToNormal human]] and Jakotsu ''revels'' in his ability to actually wound him. By the end of the "[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown fight]]", Inuyasha is half-conscious and unable to move from his injuries, and Jakotsu is disappointed that he [[LovesTheSoundOfScreaming didn't scream once]].
* Mikiri fights one in ''Manga/{{Change 123}}''. This creates a problem for her, as her jiu jitsu-based fighting style relies on forcing the opponent into submission by causing pain, and this guy just can't get enough pain.
* After being defeated - but not killed - by [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Kenshin]] when he kidnapped Kaoru, Jin-e commits suicide in order to [[spoiler: avoid being arrested and starting an investigation as being a hired assassin for the new Meiji Government]] - but he enjoys the fact that the feeling of stabbing himself in the chest was "so sweet." He dies with his iconic [[SlasherSmile smile]] on his face too.
** Jin-e was also quite enthusiastic when Kenshin crushed his nose in with the blunt edge of the sakabato, since the force of Kenshin's attack meant that he was drawing closer to his [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Battousai persona]] [[spoiler: due to Jin-e casting a powerful technique on Kaoru that rendered her paralyzed, which set off Kenshin's [[BerserkButton bad side]], to say the least]].
* Corset of ''Anime/PantyAndStockingWithGarterbelt'' is a bondage demon [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who wears]] [[OfCorsetHurts a corset]] that he tends to tighten every once in a while and can even use it to go OneWingedAngel.
* ''Manga/SaintSeiyaTheLostCanvas'' has Scorpio Kardia, whose ultimate desire is to have a fight so exciting that will end up killing him.
** Also, [[spoiler:at the age of ten, [[TheHedonist Kardia]] was offered a chance to cure his heart disease, the catch? [[{{Immortality}} Immor]][[AgeWithoutYouth tali]][[SleepModeSize ty]]! So he turned it down! [[BigWHAT WHAT!?]]]]
* Line Users in ''VisualNovel/TogainuNoChi''.
* ''Anime/Persona4TheAnimation'' has Shadow Kanji's two flunkies. One enjoys being burned, the other enjoys being frozen. They both like being hit and squeezed.
* Kumagawa Misogi from ''Manga/MedakaBox'' doesn't ''have'' to wait until he's been beaten to a bloody pulp before [[{{Retcon}} erasing]] his injuries and [[CurbstompBattle curbstomping]] his opponents... but he certainly prefers to.
* ''Manga/RosarioPlusVampire'': Routier. Although she doesn't like being hurt herself, she adores cutting others up.
** Ruby Hojo is the opposite. She's not a sadist, but a masochist. Electrocuting her has little effect on her and she "does not ''not'' like it".
* Haru from ''Manga/FireCandy'' was this all the way during his youth up until it killed his wife ([[spoiler: she was raped to death before his eyes but he did nothing to save her because he was too thrilled by her and his own suffering]]), in the present his guilt turned him into [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold rather decent person]] but he sometimes snaps into his old persona if wrong buttons are pushed (like when his friends are kidnapped)
* Hamyuts Meseta from the ''LightNovel/BookOfBantorra'' [[spoiler:was reconditioned to "Take joy from pain, to take pleasure from death" and then sent to fight in afterlife where one could "die" only by giving up on the will to exist. She enjoyed [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice it]] far too much for audience comfort, nevermind the poor sod who had to break her or die himself.]]
* In ''Upotte!!'', the antagonist, Sako, takes this to such an extent that she literally withdraws from battle to pleasure herself to the thought of killing Ichiroku
* Karasuba from ''Manga/{{Sekirei}}''. After having a brief run-in with the most powerful Sekirei, [[spoiler: Miya Asama]], she becomes so excited that she has to go out and kill someone to relieve herself. Turns out, this is because [[spoiler: Miya]] nearly killed her the last time they saw each other. Karasuba fondly recalls it, stating that she wants to experience that "fear and pain" again.
* Vincent Nightray of ''Manga/PandoraHearts'' quite enjoys torturing people (and even has the unnerving habit of hacking up stuffed animals with scissors), mostly for his own gratification but occasionally with the intention of seeing what kind of face his [[BigBrotherWorship elder]] [[IncestSubtext brother]] Gilbert will make. In the short extra "Servants and Scissors," however, it's revealed that he may have a masochistic side as well when [[spoiler:Leo, his new master,]] kicks him in the face and he cheerfully comments, "I... have come to a realization. Tormenting is fun, however, being tormented, surprisingly, isn't all that bad."
* EvilClown Hisoka of ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' gets raging boners fighting worthy opponents who can land blows on him.
* Chair of the Disciplinary Comittee Ira Gamagoori from ''Anime/KillLaKill'', whose combat uniform looks like a bondage mummy and relies entirely on damage sustained to launch a vicious counterattack using endless amounts of spiky whips. If the enemy chooses not to damage him, he is perfectly willing to whip himself in order to launch an attack. He also enjoys damage perhaps more than is healthy...
--> ''That's it! More! Punish me more! I've been a bad boy!''
--> ''Yes! That's more like it! The more I'm punished, the more my hardness towers mighty and strong!''
** It should be said that Gamagoori is less on the "sado" and more on the "masochist"; during the free-for-all Naturals Election, he came in last out of the Elite Four in the informal "who defeated the most One-Star students" competition due to only fighting in self-defense.
* Turkes in ''Manga/MotherKeeper''
* Akeno Himejima from ''LightNovel/HighSchoolDxD'' takes a great deal of pleasure from inflicting pain in others, and her primary method of doing this is in her combat support role as Rias Gremory's Queen.
** Her father [[spoiler:the fallen angel Baraqiel]] on the other hand is a straight up Masochist.
** [[spoiler:Walburga from the same series also qualifies as a Combat Sadomasochist, though she is a lesser known character at the moment]]
* Ferid, a male vampire of ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'' waxes poetically about how beautiful Kururu is and how much he loves her even after she cuts his arm off and verbally expresses her contempt for him. He also takes great enjoyment over crushing people's spirits, drinking them to the point of death, and observing their distraught emotions when he torments them.
* A milder and actually rather tragic version of this is [[Anime/{{K}} Fushimi Saruhiko]]. He's usually very straight-forward in a fight but when it comes to [[SingleTargetSexuality Yata Misaki]] it's different. He enjoys hurting him or being hurt by him simply because it means he is finally looking at him.
* Shiki of ''Anime/DanceWithDevils'' shivers with pleasure if he gets hurt or at the anticipation of being hurt or killed, in or outside of a fight. He also gets excited to what looks like a sexual degree when there's a possibility he can hurt or kill others as well, especially to Rtisuka whom he has a {{Yandere}} crush on.
* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': [[spoiler: Goku Black]] takes delight in his own pain, typically letting his enemies give him a beating before he fights back. He laughs and smiles when Super Saiyan Future Trunks punches him in the stomach, and quite enjoys when Goku hits him as a Super Saiyan 2, saying how it powers him up. Goku is quite creeped out by this, calling him gross. The reason behind it is fairly unusual, though - Saiyans' BizarreAlienBiology literally means that that which does not kill them only makes them stronger, and since [[spoiler:Goku Black's]] body [[GrandTheftMe wasn't his to begin with]], he's perfectly happy to let it get injured in exchange for more power. His sadism, on the other hand, is just plain old sadism.
* Kenpachi Zaraki from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the captain of the Gotei 13's 11th squad, didn't make his way through the ranks by excelling in the Shinigami Academy or being born into nobility like the other captains of the Gotei 13. He gained his position due to his notoriety as a murderer who only killed due to the pleasure he found in fighting. Even as a captain, he willfully skimps out on his duties to put his life (and his mission's success) in danger for the sole purpose of finding a good fight. He seldom finds joy in killing disproportionately weaker opponents. Instead he, being the sadomasochistic madman that he is, preemptively handicaps himself for his death matches; he wears bells in his hair that give away his position, purposefully uses a one handed sword style despite the size of his Zanpakuto, and willfully covers one of his eye's with a monster that he had custom made to passively consume the majority of his energy. Why does he go to such lengths? He does this in order to increase the chances of his opponent actually wounding him during a death match.
* Suzuka from ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' enjoys recieving injuries during fights and her end game is trying to make the Empire's most sadistic person, general Esdeath, torture her.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''Comicbook/{{Watchmen}}'':
** The Comedian accuses Hooded Justice of getting aroused by beating up people, and judging by HJ's reaction, Comedian was almost certainly right.
** The second Nite Owl mentions having multiple run-ins with a masochist who would dress up like a supervillain and ask the superheroes to beat him up. He made the mistake of asking Rorschach, and got thrown down an empty elevator shaft. Silk Spectre II had tangled with the masochist and commented that he was breathing weird while she was beating him up.
* Mondo Pain, an old ''[[Comicbook/ThePunisher Punisher]]'' villain. Whenever someone pulled a gun on him, he'd also enjoy psyching them out, saying that even if they shot him, he'd still kill them. When he tried it on Frank, he was shocked when he actually ''did'' shoot him.
* Also, really obscure Marvel character, The Crippler. ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}. All demons are sadomasochists and are able to become stronger by receiving pain, but Etrigan, being more powerful than the average demon, is better at it than most.
--> Blood is drawn! I am impressed—though my hell-spawned powers will heal it! Besides...next to giving pain, my favorite sport's to feel it!
* Comicbook/MoonKnight, DependingOnTheWriter. ComicBook/{{Taskmaster}} once stated that the reason he doesn't use Moon Knight's fighting style is because Moon Knight would rather take a punch than block it.
* ''ComicBook/MarshalLaw'', being a parody/deconstruction of superheroes, briefly presents a parody of Daredevil, living only to inflict and receive pain. Like many other "superheroes", he received surgical enchantments that make him ''impervious to pain''...
* Franchise/{{Batman}}:
** The Black Mask had a high threshold for pain. In his own words:
--> "...Do you know what REAL strength is? The ability to accept pain. ANY amount of pain. Not to ignore it, that never works.
::: And as for the "sado" in "sadomasochist", ColdBloodedTorture is his ''hobby''. "You must embrace it... almost love it, in a way. So, do you love it, little girl? DO YOU?"
** ComicBook/TheJoker. It could be attributed to the psychological fixation he has on Batman, however the undertones of his actions and indeed, his ''re''actions (laughing maniacally, begging for more, relishing the ''pain'', as well as [[InLoveWithYourCarnage delighting in the aggression he elicits from the bat]], makes Joker a very very sado/maso man.
* In their first fight in ''ComicBook/SupremePower'', Doc Spectrum punched Hyperion very hard and the invulnerable superhero actually felt it. He wanted more, because he'd never felt anything like it.
* Marv from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' seems to enjoy what little damage he sustains in fights. In ''A Dame To Kill For'' he meets Dwight after Dwight had gotten into a particularly brutal fight. Dwight's monologue mentions that he spat out a tooth and Marv smiled at him as if they shared the same enjoyment of violence. Dwight was not as amused.
* In keeping with the comic's pattern of "TechnicallyLivingZombie [[ZombieApocalypse Apocalypse]]... but much, much worse", the ''Comicbook/{{Crossed}}'' really get off on brutal atrocities, whether they're on the giving or receiving end.
* [[ComicBook/NewGods Granny Goodness]], Darkseid's personal TortureTechnician, spends most of her time inflicting pain in the OrphanageOfFear she runs. But then she has exchanges like this while fighting Amanda Waller...
-->'''Granny:''' Did that hurt? Good, it was supposed to.
-->'''Amanda Waller:''' Yeah, it hurt. Does this? (rifle-butts her) It's SUPPOSED to! ''(hits her again, knocking her flat)''
-->'''Granny:''' That's all right, dearie. Granny ''likes'' pain.
** Likewise, when Parademon, one of Granny's "children," is tortured along with his comrades in the ''ComicBook/SecretSix,'' he has little trouble coping with it.
-->'''Parademon:''' Thank you, Granny! May I have another?!
** Similarly, when Desaad possessed [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Mary Marvel]] in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', he developed into one of these and seemed to get off on ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} striking her, and started to blatantly [[FoeYay come on to her]] the more Supergirl fought.
* Robbie Baldwin aka Speedball aka Penance of the ''Comicbook/NewWarriors''. As Penance, he wore a suit with spikes lined inside it that would cut him, fueling his energy blasts. He eventually had a psychological breakthrough when he (with help from a therapist) realized that the real reason being cut empowered him was because he was getting ''high'' on the endorphins his body was releasing. The trigger for his powers -- being happy -- hadn't really changed.
* Walter in the original ''ComicBook/TheMask'' is an ImplacableMan due to combining SuperToughness with being a sadomasochist. No pain ever phases him, and in fact he [[SelfMutilationDemonstration repeatedly hurts himself]] [[CasualKink seemingly to pleasure himself as he goes about his business]].

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', slaughter and destruction turn [[EvilCounterpart Satan Girl]] on. After smashing a starship to pieces she feels so aroused than she needs sex.
* ''[[FanFic/LostBoysSaga Broken Heroes]]'': When Kairi twists Vanitas's arms behind his back, he outright tells her that he enjoys pain and [[TooKinkyToTorture all she's doing is stopping him from moving]].
* ''FanFic/{{Fractured}}'', a ''MassEffect''[=/=]''StarWars''[=/=]''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' [[MassiveMultiplayerCrossover crossover]] takes the Siren Lilith's canonical PowerHigh and pushes it UpToEleven thanks to [[PsychoSerum "JumpPaks"]], a form of [[VideoGame/{{StarCraft}} combat stimulant]] invented by an InsaneAdmiral. In the end, she [[spoiler:pulls a Heel-Face Turn due to a Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal and begs for help from one of the heroes before her redemption through death.]]
* ''[[FanFic/StarWarsParanormalitiesTrilogy Star Wars: Paranormalities]]'' introduces us to the Valkoran commander and [[TheCaligula deranged]] ex-Sith Lord (and fittingly-named), Masochus. He's a sociopath that not only enjoys subjecting people to [[CruelAndUnusualDeath slow, horrifying deaths]] or [[AndIMustScream worse]], he also enjoys pain inflicted on himself, enough that he (somehow) flayed himself down to the bone and made himself look like a [[TechnicallyLivingZombie zombie]]. Unfortunately for him, this had the side-effect of making him rely on the Force to move his own body like a string puppet from then on.
* ''WebVideo/SailorMoonAbridged'': Sailor Mars (Raye). [[TokenEvilTeammate Dear]] [[AxCrazy God,]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Mars]]...
* A downplayed example in ''Fanfic/AFantasticUpheavalOfPreviouslyHeldNotions''. When Barbara interrogates Strickler about his plans in the Janus Order, she uses the magical bond he placed upon them by bumping her elbow whenever she hears something she doesn't like. She even threatens to severely cripple herself (taking him along with her) if he does anything to seriously hurt her son. Even Draal thinks she's overdoing it a little by that point despite being impressed by her quick thinking.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* The Joker from ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' giggles whenever he's struck. He shows particular amusement while being beaten half to death by Batman, because he is technically winning the fight by having Batman surrender to a core evil. He lives to prod and poke Batman like a hungry kid after school, [[StrikeMeDownWithAllOfYourHatred just waiting for Brucey to finally snap and "break his one rule", which is to never kill anybody.]]
-->'''Joker:''' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Come on, I want you to do it, I want you to do it. Come on, hit me.]]
** And of course, his final scene in the film when Batman throws him off the tower, and he's ''[[LaughingMad laughing maniacally]]'' for every single second of his descent.
* Tyler Durden from ''Film/FightClub'' breaks into an orgasmic laughter while being bludgeoned by an angry bar owner, all the while refusing to fight back.
* Xenia Zaragevna Onatopp from ''Film/GoldenEye'', whose Combat Sadomasochism is part of her [[PsychoForHire psychotic character]]. Plus her [[MurderousThighs Signature Killing Move]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUH3B1lPvYM&fmt=18 In this sequence]], she's into full-blown OrgasmicCombat territory when gunning down everyone in the Severnaya bunker, which leads to a "[[EvenEvilHasStandards What the hell is wrong with you?]]" EyeTake from General Ouromov.
* [[Creator/LucyLiu Pearl]] from ''Film/{{Payback}}'' smiles and licks the blood when she gets hit in the face, and begins ''visibly panting'' in excitement when a handgun is pointed at her.
* Guess that makes Katinka Ingabogovinanana from ''Film/{{Zoolander}}'' one too, given that it apparently inspires some ''LesYay'' when Matilda pistol whips her.
* Castor Troy in ''Film/FaceOff'' often looks like he's orgasming whenever he does bad things ForTheEvulz, as shown when after planting a bomb, while disguised as a priest, [[BadHabits he gropes a blonde choir girl]]. Also implied by his face during the scene in the opening plane chase where he pushes one of Sean Archer's undercover agents out the cabin door for Archer to see, and then promptly executes her.

* Drake in ''Literature/{{Gone}}''. Attacking him usually results in him cheering that he's "unkillable" and then murdering you. To make matters creepier, he gets stabbed in the chest and finds it hilarious.
-->''"This should be fun." Then with his real hand, he drew the knife out of his chest, slowly, as if relishing every inch of steel.''
* Bellatrix Lestrange in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' novels has evidence of being both a masochist and sadist. In the [[Film/HarryPotter film]] of ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', she is shown licking Voldemort's "mark" on her arm, a tattoo of power which is described as being painful once Voldemort returns. She also tells Harry that he's not doing it right when he uses the Cruciatus curse on her, as you have to enjoy it for it to really work. She would know, torturing people is her hobby.
* ''Literature/NewJediOrder'': The Yuuzhan Vong attach religious significance to pain, so it's unsurprising that the most fanatical of them are like this (and the ones who aren't ''that'' crazy can still take all but the most horrific punishment without blinking). This is explicitly pointed out by half-Vong Jedi Tahiri when facing Lord Nyax, an immensely powerful darksider whose favorite attack involves forcing his opponents to feel crippling agony -- most people drown in pain, she says, but the Yuuzhan Vong ''swim in it''. Cue OhCrap from Nyax... It's implied (if not outright stated) that they love pain because, after they were cut off from the Force, it's the only way they know they're still alive. Also, their religion teaches that the ultimate god (Yun Yuuzhan) cut himself up into a bunch of pieces to make the very universe itself. Of course, the best way to honor him is to follow his example. Cue excessive scarring, tattooing, and removal of their own body parts (and replacement with bioengineered creatures, usually better than the original limb/organ).
* The Mord-Sith of the ''Literature/SwordOfTruth''. Crazed sadomasochist women tortured since childhood until they are impervious to all but the most extreme pain, and living for little other than to serve the Lord Rahl and inflict more pain with their Agiel, a sort of hand-held AgonyBeam. They receive as much pain themselves as they dish out, because the use of their Agiel causes them constant pain when in use just as it hurts the person on the receiving end. Though every time someone manages to crack one's armor it turns out they are just big softies inside. For example, Rikka's obsession with getting Nicci into a pink frilly nightdress.
* The kelpie from ''Literature/WarOfTheDreaming'' are rotting, festering, diseased knights who ''very firmly'' believe that life is hell.
-->'''Kelpie:''' Why do you resist? Life is pain!\\
''[Raven breaks its arm]''\\
'''Kelpie:''' [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Thank you!]] ''[faints]''
* [[OurDemonsAreDifferent The Jachyras]] from ''[[Literature/TheSwordOfShannaraTrilogy The Wishsong of Shannara]]''. Elder fairy creatures addicted to pain, both their own and that of others. They'll tear themselves apart in order to kill an opponent, [[TheHyena laughing]] the entire time. Thank god there are only two of them. As it is, it takes the greatest Druid ever, ''and'' one of the most {{Badass Normal}}s in fantasy fiction to put them down, at [[spoiler: the cost of their own lives]]. Bad news, there are way more than two of them. It's just two was all the Mord Wraiths had [[SealedEvilInACan released from where they were trapped]]. Oh and said trapping? It was done by both the good ''and'' evil faeries working together to get rid of them.
* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', High Lord Kalarus's elite Immortal troops have been conditioned from a young age via [[MindRape discipline collars]] to be absolutely loyal to him, and to take pleasure in pain during combat, rendering them very difficult to kill.
* Lucius of the Emperor's Children in the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' novels. Every time he scores a kill he carves a scar into his face.
* Richard Lopez of ''Literature/ShipBreaker'' has some characteristics of this, what with constantly trying to gain new scars, and laughing while he slaughters people.
* ''Literature/TalesFromJabbasPalace'' expands on the backstory of EV-9D9, the torture chamber boss droid seen in ''Franchise/StarWars: Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''. She was a supervisor droid accidentally built with a unit meant for interrogators, which let her feel pain (her own and others') and made it pleasant. As such, when she's eventually killed by a vengeful survivor, she's not upset to die, only that he removed her pain unit before finishing the job.
* ''Literature/IronWarriors'' and ''Literature/{{Ultramarines}}'', two ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' series, jointly give us Notha Etassay, a Slaaneshi blademaster. Put it this way: after Warsmith Honsou defeats him in combat by stomping hard on his ribcage, when Etassay recovers, he ''thanks'' Honsou for the exquisite sensation of bone shards through the lungs. [[spoiler:He also enjoys dying from the deadly toxins of an Eversor assassin waaaaaay too much.]]
* In ''Litereature/CounselorsAndKings'', the Crinti (mixed-blood descendants of humans and dark elves) are a ProudWarriorRace who revere Loviatar, the goddess of pain (see the Forgotten Realms entry under Tabletop Games for details). As such, they love the thrill of the fight regardless of how much it hurts, and are explicitly noted to ''entice'' their enemies to battle rather than trying to drive them away.
* Darquesse from ''Literature/SkulduggeryPleasant'' is not entirely a combat sadomasochist, being able to shut off her pain sensors, but at one point during her battle with Vile intentionally allows him to gouge out her eye to see what the pain feels like.
* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', the monstrous supervillain Crawler has a massive HealingFactor and an AdaptiveAbility which makes him [[CameBackStrong Come Back Strong]] every time anything damages him. He loves becoming stronger and he loves it when things damage him. [[spoiler:Piggot exploits this by telling Crawler where they're about to drop a Tinker-tech bomb and he can't resist the opportunity; he ends up transmuted into glass, finally killing him]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Spike is an example of this trope. Although he doesn't take it over the top, he likes having Buffy beat him up, and one of his major complaints when he becomes an IntangibleMan is that he can't hit people. At one point, Angel is battling a necromancer while Spike tries to possess him, and when Spike finally wins the battle for control, he keeps fighting Angel a bit for this reason. Lampshaded on several occasions, most notably when Spike makes his AnguishedDeclarationOfLove.
--->'''Joyce:''' Honey, did you somehow, unintentionally, lead him on in any way? Send him signals?\\
'''Buffy:''' Well, I do beat him up a lot. For Spike, that's like third base.
** The vampire MonsterOfTheWeek Zachary Kralik is another example. When Buffy tries to ward him off with a cross, he presses himself against it. He clearly gets off on it burning him.
* In the HBO series ''Series/{{Rome}}'', [[MagnificentBastard Mark Antony]] is shown making two naked women fight each other with swords for his pleasure. When the other one gets wounded, he halts the fighting and licks the blood from the wound.
* Denna from ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker''. Among others things she tastes Richard's blood, clearly enjoys using her Agiel on people (despite the pain it brings to herself), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and wears leather]].
* Gekikara from the ''Music/AKB48'' drama, ''Majisuka Gakuen''. She doesn't even bother with trying to block or dodge, she just takes the hits and hits back harder, while cackling maniacally the whole time. When gossiping about her, Team Hormone says that she doesn't care about winning or losing, she just loves the violence.
* Fiona from ''Series/BurnNotice''. Michael specifically says that she regards violence as foreplay, and the first time that the two hook up again is after Fiona forces him into fighting her.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ramsay Bolton seems to have the time of his life during Yara's raid despite getting cut up.
* ''Series/ZNation'' has [[spoiler: Charles Garnett]] who is revealed via Warren's flashback to have been sexually aroused by killing zombies.

[[folder:Myths & Religion]]
* In one version of ''Myth/JasonAndTheArgonauts'', they run into a tribe of savages devoted to Ares, who fight not so much to kill than to see the blood run. Homer describes Ares as "''tukton kakon''", which translates as "manmade evil". If you were to worship Ares, then you would hold embodying this trope to be your holy duty.

* Franz von Pain of ''Pinball/TheChampionPub''.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40000'':
** Followers of Slaanesh.
** In ''Warhammer 40000'', the Dark Eldar (their counterparts in ''Warhammer'', the Dark Elves, are more of a SocialDarwinist race...). Dark Eldar are generally more into the "sado" part (unlike followers of Slaanesh who consider inflicting and receiving pain to be equally pleasing), but they do enjoy the sensation of pain in combat as well (for example, typical Dark Eldar armor is secured in place with painful hooks and barbs). [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration Dark Eldar even have an in-game rule, Power from Pain, that reflects this]]: Dark Eldar units gain pain tokens when they kill enemy units, and pain tokens unlock bonuses. A Dark Eldar player starts with a full army of normal troops, but as the battle wears on, the enemy's army takes casualties and grow weaker, whereas the surviving Dark Eldar become ravenous killing machines who can laugh off enemy fire, and fight much more ferociously in combat.
* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'': The Impaled, a subgroup/cult within the [[BadassBookworm Ordo Dracul]]. Their theory is that Dracula never achieved his transcendent state because he spent too much time doing the impaling and not enough time being impaled himself; thus, he never learned the truth that can be found in pain. So these guys ''impale themselves'', often for days at a time, until they frenzy or are driven into torpor from the hunger or the pain. The bonus is that these guys learn to resist and [[TooKinkyToTorture ''love'' pain]], making them damned scary to fight against.
* Tzimisce in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' could acquire powers that made them find pain pleasurable, and thus became oddly better fighters as they were injured. The clan was also notorious for [[BondageIsBad sadomasochistic tendencies]].
* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': this is kind of the idea behind Laughing Wounds Style, which was invented by one of the Abyssal Exalted. It starts with a [[AppliedPhlebotinum Charm]] that lets you treat wound penalties as bonuses, and only gets more ridiculous from there. Its capstone Charm allows the user to ''rip an enemy's still-beating heart out of their chest,'' which makes the enemy helpless to resist the Laughing Wounds practitioner's other powers.
* ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has servants of Loviatar ("[[OddJobGods Maiden of Pain]]"). They're rather funny like this. In ''[[http://ww2.wizards.com/Books/mirrorstone/Article.aspx?doc=fr_spinayarn2004p1 The Night Tymora Sneezed]]'' one priestess fought a [[KnightInShiningArmor paladin]]... he was ticked off by her comments even more than by her lash.
* Skorne Nihilators in ''TabletopGame/{{Hordes}}''. The [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Skorne]] believe that pain makes you stronger, but the Nihilators are members of something called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cult of Pain]] which takes it to a whole new level. They spend most of their free time inflicting as much pain to themselves as their bodies can take, and in combat they fight like frenzied berserkers, ignoring debilitating blows and striking at anything within reach, friend or foe.
* In one of the ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' source books there is a particularly dodgy weapon system described. A targeting cyberlink/weapon-camera which rewards every killshot with a boost of endorphins in order to encourage improved accuracy. The results proved to be rather terrifying and the system never went commercial. Although there are supposedly finished units in circulation on the black market.
* The clerics of Kor, the god of bloodshed and warfare in ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'', come close to this, since only a fight in which they are grievously wounded, while killing or maiming their enemy, is considered a ''good fight''.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* There's the infamous Cyborg Ninja battle in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid.'' [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything "Hurt me more!"]]
** [[DepravedBisexual Vamp]].
** Forms the cornerstone of Big Boss and Kaz's "physical relationship" in ''Peace Walker''. They're two best friends who punch each other unconscious as a form of affection.
** Raiden in ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' becomes this with his [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Jack]] [[AxCrazy the Ripper]] persona.
** The Diamond Dogs aboard Mother Base in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV''. They seem to love getting beaten senseless by Venom Snake, and sometimes even asking for him to "squeeze harder" while in a chokehold.
* [[AxCrazy Akechi Mitsuhide]] from ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara'' is just as bad, moaning in pleasure and delight every time he's injured... Also, "quench my thirst with your blood and tears!"
** In the anime he's even worse. Being burned alive only seems to make him orgasm.
* The Dark Mistress from ''VideoGame/DungeonKeeper''. If it's any indication, she moans in ecstasy when attacking, she sleeps in an iron maiden, she is initially lured to your dungeon when you build a torture chamber, and when there is no one for her to torture, she straps herself in and tortures herself.
* Silver Mantis in ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes''.
** Corruptors and Masterminds have access to a special powerpool known as ''Pain Domination'', which works by taking pain (damage) from allies and bringing it upon yourself. You get buffs for doing so, and it's heavily implied that users of Pain Domination powers [[BadPowersBadPeople enjoy the pain of combat...]]
* The Sacrier class in ''VideoGame/{{Dofus}}'' actually becomes more powerful by taking damage.
** The personalities depicted in Dofus and related media certainly apply as well. The Goultard convention short film has one particularly pronounced Sacrier villain. In ''WesternAnimation/{{Wakfu}}'', the remaining Sacriers (such as Kriss Krass) are toned down in many ways but retain the basic premise.
* I-no from ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' seems to take her hits [[OrgasmicCombat the wrong way]]...
** Raven is this even moreso, to the point where it's a part of his gameplay. His special "Give It To Me Right Here" has him pose in a mocking fashion and hitting him during this time raises an excitement gauge that powers up his specials, on top of the inflicted damage recovering over time. He also looks ''pleased'' when he's a victim of instant kill moves, whereas everyone else tends to wear a distinct OhCrap expression (It helps that he's immortal). Despite this, he's fundamentally a better person then the aforementioned I-no and only displays his psychotic persona in battle.
* Grenade Man in ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'' is ''made'' of this trope. He ''giggles'' when you hit him, shouts ''"oh yeah!"'' when you deflect his own Flash Bombs back at him with the Thunder Claw, and yells ''"that felt good!"'' when he ''explodes''.
* ''[[VideoGame/ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume Covenant of the Plume]]'' doesn't have many masochists, but you can recruit a few sadistic {{Token Evil Teammate}}s. Liselotte stands out--if she manages to kill someone with her special attack, her BondOneLiner is "Wasn't that the ''best'' you've ever had?"
* ''[[StreetFighter Super Street Fighter IV]]'' has none other than Juri Han. She laughs, moans, and says "that felt good, didn't it" during the "climax" of her Ultra Combo.
** Vega is more of TheFightingNarcissist, but some adaptations give him a whiff of this. Specially when he fights Chun-Li in [[TheAnimeOfTheGame The Animated Movie.]]
* ''[[VideoGame/TheKingofFighters King of Fighters]]'':
** Vice fills in this trope, and how. The infamous "she wolf" posture and moans she often has as her intro pose say all.
** Shen Woo is implied to be this, or at least to [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence enjoy fighting women like these.]] As he tells to [[spoiler: [[BackFromTheDead Vice]] herself]]:
-->"You know... crazy women like you '''[[SexIsViolence really turn me on!]]'''"
* [[BigBad Father Balder]] from ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' invokes this trope during his BossBattle. When Bayonetta headbutts a ''building'' back at him, he will fall, get up, crick his neck and softly moan. Same with a ''satellite''!
* [[HornyDevils Nifilhema]] of ''VideoGame/{{Lusternia}}'', which is appropriate for a demonic incarnation of both pain and lust. She's peeled back strips of her own flesh and holds them perpetually taut with silver hook piercings, and delights in the ColdBloodedTorture of her angelic counterparts and her own followers. Magnagoran [[PlayerCharacter players]] who follow her teachings are encouraged to become combat sadomasochists too.
* King Gallon, one of the final bosses of ''VideoGame/OdinSphere'', is the victim of a rather ghastly transformation. Not only can he heal any injury, but every sensation he feels gets turned into pleasure.
* SIE in ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol''. She appears to get off to domination contests outside combat as well.
* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles'' has Homer as the masochist, to the point where he gets bonuses in combat when seriously hurt, and is quite happy when Edy punches him. Both times, he sounds like he's having an orgasm. Jane features as the sadist, and reading the profiles after finishing the game says that she went on to be a drill instructor known as "Sadistic Jane".
* [[PsychoForHire Kyojiro]] in ''VideoGame/WayOfTheSamurai 2'' uses a serrated sword to inflict extra pain on her opponents and has a habit of drinking blood.
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia'': ZAGI. Oh God, Zagi.
-->'''Zagi''': I'm gonna kill you, and carve your name into my blood!
-->'''Yuri''': [[LampshadeHanging Yeeeeah, that's pretty disgusting.]]
* The Reaver specialization in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is this turned into a game mechanic. [[FighterMageThief Warriors]] using the associated talents will inflict extra damage, in proportion to how badly injured they are.
* According to the official ''VideoGame/Persona4'' magazines, Yosuke might be this. When Yukiko hits him (to snap him out of confusion), it is strongly implied that he becomes sexually aroused as a result. He gets embarrassed about it once the confusion wears off.
* The Succubus summoned by [[TheMinionMaster Warlocks]] in ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' wear brandished whips, make constant {{Double Entendre}}s and [[TooKinkyToTorture moan with pleasure]] when she attacks or get hit, [[DepravedBisexual regardless of the summoner or mob's gender]]. They even [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything make loud orgasm noises]] when they die.
** There's also the Priest Shadow spec, which revolves around causing immense pain and has a talent called Masochism, in which a sufficient amount of damage taken will give the user a burst of mana.
** Death Knights have this as an in story (though not mechanically shown) cost of their powers. They must regularly cause injury to other beings or be wracked with terrible pain themselves.
* The Tainted Coil in ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', especially their leader Doviculus. It's why Creator/TimSchafer chose Creator/TimCurry for the role.
* Sapphine Grace from VideoGame/SuperRobotWars series. She has a habit of reaching organism when her mech gets hit, which gets cranked up in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden]]'', where voice acting exists.
** Also The Edel Bernal, the [[spoiler: last boss of ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ'']] Who sounds equally orgasmic attacking and being attacked.
* Ivy and Voldo in the ''VideoGame/SoulCalibur'' series. Ivy carries a whip and tends towards a sadistic attitude (after strangling her opponent with her whip during a throw in the first game, she asks, "Do you want more?", or alternately shouts "You filth!"), while Voldo, though [[TheVoiceless less loquacious]] than Ivy, can moan almost pleasurably when taking damage. Both dress the part in their primary costumes.
** Minor point, but still: ''[=SoulCalibur=] V''. Jolly Tira's death cry against Pyrrha... ''yeah''.
* Dr. Mundo in ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'' is a perfect example. All of his abilities are CastFromHitPoints. One of his abilities is called Sadism, and heals him quickly while increasing his movement speed. Another is called Masochism, and grants him bonus attack damage based on how much health he's missing.
* ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'': Vanitas's in-game battle quotes include such gems as "Suffer!" and "Show me anguish!" And that's not even getting into the fact that he [[EvilLaugh laughs like crazy]] after Aqua beats him senseless in Radiant Garden.
* In ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'''s story, the Gorefast enemy is this, wishing to both inflict and take as much pain as it possibly can. It seems the Scrake took lessons from it, as well - it was meant to be the ultimate CombatMedic, but it became more interested in causing pain rather than healing it.
* Megabeth in ''Super VideoGame/MondayNightCombat'' sometimes giggles like an excited schoolgirl when taking damage. It seems to trigger fairly often when she's being ''impaled'' by the assassin's katana.
* The titular villain from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' exhibits this in its fights.
* [[DeathSeeker Animus]] from ''VideoGame/TheBlackHeart'' is an immortal sadomasochist gender-switching HumanoidAbomination whose combat techniques include piercing both himself and an opponent with massive rusted blades (one of his grabs has him pin the opponent to the ground before doing this, [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything rather suggestively]]), running on a buzzsaw blade that tears into his unfortunate victim, and setting himself on fire to burn the opponent, all of this laughing, no matter if he's hitting the enemy or if the enemy is hitting him. And in his story mode he claims that his own blood brings him pleasure (although [[DeathSeeker the fact of existing makes him sick]]).
* Tormentors and Lacerators in ''[[Videogame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic Might and Magic: Heroes VI]]'', minions of the Demon Lord of Pain. They grow more violent whenever they inflict or take damage, and use their own broken bones, which stick out of their flesh, as stabbing weapons to impale their foes.
* Jack from the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' trilogy. As a child, she was locked in a Cerberus facility that was trying to make her into the most powerful biotic ever. To test her strength, she was made to fight other children. To motivate her, she was given a cocktail of drugs to make her feel good. If asked about it, she says "I still get warm feelings during a fight" and shivers pleasurably.
* Albedo from ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' ''really'' enjoys pain and fighting... He even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it when he heals himself during a fight:
--> '''Albedo:''' This pain... It's so good... SO GOOD!!!
* In the second ''VideoGame/{{Manhunt}}'' game, [[DepravedBisexual the Pervs]] are an [[GangOfHats entire gang]] of these guys.[[note]][[HehHehYouSaidX Please refrain from using the obvious "Gang Bang" jokes]][[/note]]. They dress up in [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom animal costumes]] and [[UnsexySadist gimp suits]], and the level they're featured in is a [[BondageIsBad BDSM club]], complete with a "Dungeon" [[ColdBloodedTorture where they torture people to death]] [[CombatSadomasochist to satisfy their own fiendish pleasures]], Film/{{Hostel}} style.
* ''VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaWarriorWithin'' has female enemies that say things like "Hit me harder prince" and "There's so much pleasure in pain" during combat.
** A GoodBadBug turns the [[EldritchAbomination otherwise monstrous]] [[ClockRoaches Dahaka]] into one as well, due to a glitch that loads [[TheDragon Shadee's]] voice clips during the chase by mistake. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKTuSXca4zg&feature=youtu.be&t=6m22s It is frigging hilarious]].
* Dirge of Cerberus Final Fantasy VII gives us Rosso the Crimson, who moans a lot and quite literally states that "pain is pleasure." But though she doesn't mind pain, she seems to have problems not being on top. When [[spoiler: Vincent defeats her, she commits suicide so that no one will ever be greater than her. This is kind of odd, considering that Rosso is MAYBE third in command of Deepground. Apparently, she made exceptions.]]
* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', you can run into a bunch of mercenaries on the planet Manaan, one of which is an Iridonian. One of his fellow mercenaries describes his distaste for the Iridonians, saying "Those savages keep hacking at a fallen foe even after death, mutilating the corpse out of pure blood lust." This coming from a [[BloodKnight Mandalorian]].
* [[AxCrazy Darkside!]][[FallenHero Jaesa]] in ''Videogame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''; this trope is a major indicator of just how far she's gone.
* In ''Videogame/Borderlands2'', this fits [[TheBerserker Krieg's]] playstyle like a glove. Many of his skills follow the theme of making him stronger the closer he is to death, such as giving an increased fire rate when his shields are down. His action skill recharges faster when he takes damage, and you can take a skill that makes him susceptible to friendly fire just so your teammates can help it recharge too. He has an entire skill tree devoted to being on fire. Many of his quotes have him scream about how much he loves pain. The last remnants of his sanity that make up the voice in his head doesn't feel the same.
* In ''Videogame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', Nisha is equal parts sadistic and masochistic, which is represented by her Law & Order tree. The skill tree functions on gaining stacks of Order whenever she takes damage equivalent to 15% of her health, which initially simply gives her a chance to heal the damage taken. By going down further into the tree, she can deal bonus damage to enemies that have damaged her as well as gaining various different buffs the more damage she's taken.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'': Implied to be the case with Jihl Nabaat. She seems just a little ''too'' happy at the prospect of seeing two l'Cie kill each other, and takes great pleasure in using her baton to [[spoiler:slap Sazh around]]. Despite her VillainousBreakdown in Chapter 9, when the party actually arrive, she seems all too pumped to fight them; [[spoiler:it's just too bad the BigBad one-shots her before she gets a chance]].
** When you actually ''do'' get to fight her in [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 the sequel's]] Coliseum, her main battle strategy is to [[FlunkyBoss summon some protection]], focus on slapping around either Serah or Noel, sacrifice her mooks, then use her LimitBreak, which is called ''Sadistic Surge''. No, really.
* ''Videogame/SenranKagura'': The Hebijo ninja Ryōna is this in spades. Her perverted lust for wanting to experience pain can ascend into disturbing levels of squick sometimes.
** Haruka has a little bit of this going for her as well, as she seems to enjoy getting stripped a little too much.
** Ibuki also shows shades of this from time to time.
* Aran Ryan from ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' on the Wii seems to be this. He is ''far'' too much into the whole 'people getting hit in the face thing' thing, laughing madly with every punch he takes, always sporting a gigantic SlasherSmile every time he lands a hit, and being an AxCrazy BloodKnight bar none. He'll punch himself between rounds for lack of anything better to do (even more disturbing when it's revealed in his opening cutscene that he's hidden ''horseshoes'' in his gloves). Finally, when you ''do'' beat him, his expression in the challenge room isn't humbled or sad like many of the others, but a slightly worrying look of ''gratification.''
-->"Fighting's like breathing, Mac!"
* In ''VideoGame/YuGiOhCapsuleMonsterColiseum'', several of Marik and Yami Marik's lines imply that they're this.
-->'''Marik:''' (hit with a heavy attack) ''Nice''... it's no ''fun'' if you don't fight back...\\
'''Yami Marik:''' (hit with a heavy attack) Ha ha ha! Pharaoh... Keep it coming!
* The Assassin, a very minor yet memorable character of the fan game ''VideoGame/RakenzarnTales'' is this. An AxCrazy BloodKnight ProfessionalKiller and KnightOfCerebus. The more hurt she is during a battle, the more excited and bloodthirsty she becomes. She finds a disturbing pleasure in her own pain. The heroes didn't nickname her "Little Miss Crazy" for nothing...
* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' combines this with NightmareFetishist. As an insanity, a character can become ConditionedToAcceptHorror this way. Some classes outright beg enemies to attack them, others want to see what new abominations they'll be fighting. Characters with the affliction will sometimes shove their way up to the front of the party so they'll get hit more.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'': If you decide to fight Mettaton [[spoiler:in his EX form]], he [[spoiler:makes... "[[https://i.gyazo.com/60c3a3b35ef042acb9cdcfb85a273caf.png interesting]]" [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_2016_02_01_at_101746_am.png faces]] and]] moans in a ''very'' suggestive manner.
* ''VideoGame/AtlasReactor'': [[TheBerserker Rask]] and [[AGodAmI Orion]], both freelancers who gain [[LimitBreak Energy]] from being attacked, will both encourage their opponents when damaged.
-->'''Rask:''' *Growls* ...MORE!
-->'''Orion:''' IT HURTS... SO GOOD.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Richard from ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup''. Granted, he is meant to be undead, and therefore probably can't feel anything, so it could just be amusement at people attempting to hurt him.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'':
** Von Pinn [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20040903 definitely is]] one of these. And used to [[HellBentForLeather dress]] accordingly.
** The Jagers possibly also qualify. Their love of fighting is [[BloodKnight legendary]], and some seem to enjoy the taste of their own blood when licking their wounds clean [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100526#.VyXzoPkrLIU a little too much,]] judging by Maxim's face.
* ''Webcomic/{{SSDD}}'' has SuperSoldiers known as "Gigglers". They get injected with drugs when they kill an opponent, making them [[MeaningfulName cackle with delight]]. It also seems that they're [[FeelsNoPain not normally capable of feeling pain at all]], which leads to one individual "Giggler" who was captured by another faction while still in his UterineReplicator and allowed to grow up normally as an experiment spending a lot of time testing it out when the nerve-blocks are finally disabled, much to the disquiet of the other characters.
* ''Webcomic/BittersweetCandyBowl'', Alejandro took two of Lucy's [[GroinKick kicks]], had his teeth smashed into each other hard enough to chip one and draw blood, and was still okay enough to [[spoiler:[[WouldHitAGirl beat Lucy senseless]] before Mike came back]], smashing his face into an alley floor and still not stopping him. It took Mike and Lucy together to start the example in NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. And he beat Mike before all this happened.
* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'':
** Equius Zahhak, in a way. [[spoiler:In his "fight" against [[AxCrazy Gamzee]], he allows himself to be suffocated by a makeshift garrote, without so much as fighting back. He has always had a sick fetish for feeling subjugated by the purple-bloods, and his death reflects this.]]
** Not long after, [[spoiler:Gamzee himself. Nepeta comes to avenge Equius' death, and most fans were expecting Nepeta to end up doing some damage to him. What actually happens is that Gamzee stops her inches from her face and uses her claws to scratch his own face (backwards!), all the while having a sadistic grin on his face. honk HONK]]
** Long after, Jake [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown flips his shit]] on [[TokenEvilTeammate Meenah]]. Her resulting expressions... [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006906 are not displeased]], [[SubvertedTrope but only because she's actually ignoring him]] [[http://mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=006912 in favor of fangirling over]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen her very successfully evil A2 counterpart.]]
* ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'' has Arachne who is generally TooKinkyToTorture and [[http://yafgc.net/comic/2180-drow-expectations/ find being put in danger arousing]] in any circumstances.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''Series/FlandersCompany'': Hippolyte Kurtzmann, a.k.a. Sadoman, makes a ''super-power'' with this trope; his ability allows him to convert pain (both his and the others') into energy which he can use for various moves.
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', [[DemonLordsAndArchdevils Vaetris]] and her succubi minions of the [[HornyDevils Eastern Horde]] get turned on by causing pain to others and receiving pain in combat and sex. They're really turned on by seeing and smelling blood.
* In ''Literature/{{Wingspan}}'', by Julieann M. Brown-Micko, the Archangel Michael
* Geier von Engelmacher of ''Roleplay/OrderlyChaos'', though he falls more on the masochistic side of this trope.
* Soneillon from ''Literature/TalesOfWyre'' takes this further: she enjoys pain, but not as much as she enjoys ''being killed''. ([[ResurrectiveImmortality She gets better]].)
* ''WebVideo/CriticalRole'': Kurn, the Vasselheim pit fighting champion, positively enjoys getting his face smashed in by Grog. Just as much as he enjoys returning the favor.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Herr Trigger, a [[ThoseWackyNazis wacky Nazi assassin]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', is like this.
-->'''Customs officer:''' Is your stay for business or pleasure?\\
'''Herr Trigger:''' Ecstasy.
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** Marceline is a minor case. While she doesn't outright enjoy pain, it makes her nostalgic of the days when she wasn't a nigh-invincible queen of vampires. Those days were when she was ''a little kid''. Yeah... says a lot about her, doesn't it?
** Then there's Finn himself. In "Jake Suit," he jumps headfirst into a volcano for fun.
* Airachnid in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', a sadistic Decepticon who enjoys inflicting pain to her victims. Also when Arcee plans to kill her, she tells Arcee to make it hurt.
* [[PsychoPrototype Rampage]] and [[PyroManiac Inferno]] of ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' both enjoy the pain of the victims and laugh off damage to themselves. Rampage due to his [[HealingFactor near immortality]] and Inferno out of pure insanity.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': In "Alone At Sea", it's revealed that Jasper is fascinated by the experience of being at someone's mercy after being the strongest in the room her whole life, falling to her knees and begging Lapis to [[FusionDance fuse]] again, and insisting she's the only one who can handle the abuse Lapis dishes out.
* One-shot villain Spike from ''WesternAnimation/MightyMax'' is effectively NighInvulnerable, and so greets attempts to hurt him with laughter and mockery. A flashback to when he attacked Norman's village as a child shows that Norman's father, Erlik, kicked Spike's feet out from under him and caused him to fall face-first into a pile of branches, resulting in multiple sticks impaling his face. Spike promptly got up laughing at the idea that he could be hurt with "twigs", [[SelfMutilationDemonstration snapping off one length of branch and ramming it into his own nose to emphasize his indifference to pain]].
-->'''Spike:''' (face impaled deeply on multiple branches) You think you can hurt me with a twig? You can't hurt me! (shoves branch up nose) Feels good!
