Quotes / The Sociopath

Lex Luthor is Superman's sworn archenemy. If the alien Superman embodies selflessness, Earth's own son Luthor is selfishness personified. He uses his genius-level intellect and driving ambition only to advance himself and crush others. Even without superpowers, Lex is easily the most dangerous human being on the planet.
Head of the technological powerhouse LexCorp, Lex is devoted to ridding the world of Superman for the good of humanity - or rather, for one man: himself. His talk of empowering the common man is only a cover. Charming, fascinating, and utterly indifferent to the suffering of others, Lex is a true sociopath.

[On all women] You're all a bunch of fuggin whores.
[On his own men] You're all a bunch of dogs.
[On the Japanese] You're all deer to track.
Sgt. Sam Croft, The Naked and the Dead

"You're a strange man. You killed your best friend. You betrayed everyone who ever came in contact with you. You killed my cousin. I guess... the survival of the fittest thing really meant a lot to you."
Niko Bellic to Dimitri Rascalov in the Deal Ending, Grand Theft Auto IV

I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust.
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho

Alex Mercer: This... source. It's the key to genetics — but it's also a machine, churning out the worst viruses ever seen. Things that — if they got out of the lab — could literally erase human civilization as we know it.
Joseph Schulze: And how did that make you feel?
Alex Mercer: I wasn't paid to feel.

The man with the cold voice had killed a woman. He was talking about it without any kind of remorse - with amusement.
Frank Bryce's thoughts on Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

He knew he should feel bad for the dork, but he only felt annoyed. He felt worse about the fact that he didn’t feel bad than he did about what he’d just read.
Regent, Worm

Miles: Corporal.
Strausser: I'm a sergeant now.
Miles: Well, let's be honest, you're a sociopath, is what you are. Before the blackout, you'd have been locked in a rubber room.

John: I've been clinically diagnosed with sociopathy. Do you know what that means?
Rob: It means you're a freak.
John: It means that you're about as important to me as a cardboard box. You're just a thing - a piece of garbage that no one's thrown away yet.

"People are simply things to be used. Used and thrown away."

Professor Zoom: Enjoy your petty little victories, Flash. But no matter how fast you run, you can't save everyone... not the ones that matter to you.note 
Superman: Best to keep your mouth shut. If you don't want bugs in your teeth. (Flies away with Zoom in tow.)
Batman: (To Flash) Thawne's a classic sociopath. They have a knack for knowing just what'll get under your skin.
Flash: I know.

The concept of empathy is understood by [DeFalco], but... irrelevant.

Abandon your captured family. Give up on the friend who betrayed you. Feel no guilt for the murder of your friend. If you could find the will to be ruthless, then you'd be freed from all your stress in an instant.
Ryoma Sengoku, Kamen Rider Gaim

What if my problem wasn't that I don't understand people, but that I don't like them? What if I was the kind of person who was obliged to hurt you for this? I mean physically. I think you'd have to believe afterward, if you could, that agreeing to participate and then backing out at the critical moment was a mistake. Because that's what I'm telling you, as clearly as I can.
Louis "Lou" Bloom, Nightcrawler

Roose has no feelings, you see. Those leeches that he loves so well sucked all the passions out of him years ago. He does not love, he does not hate, he does not grieve. This is a game to him, mildly diverting. Some men hunt, some hawk, some tumble dice. Roose plays with men. You and me, these Freys, Lord Manderly, his plump new wife, even his bastard, we are but his playthings.
Barbrey Dustin, A Song of Ice and Fire

I fucking hate the world.

A mortal driven insane by Malkav loses the capacity to empathize with other people. The person cannot even recognize that other beings are people. Malkav's Chosen become creatures as amoral as any vampire lost to the Beast, but retaining a human intellect in every other way. These "isolates" treat other people as potentially threatening animals, as competitors for food, or as food themselves. They do not shrink from murder and cannibalism; torture fascinates these human-looking creatures, as they ponder the conundrum of an object that mimics the appearance of pain.

"Not feeling, never satisfied, doesn't know if he's doing the right thing or the wrong thing, but above all, doesn't care."

"His main problem seems to be that he sees things differently from other people, in that he sees other people as things. This gets him into a spot of trouble early on, as his assassinations often include the brutal murders of not just the target, but also their family, their servants, and very often their pets."
Discworld Wiki description of Jonathan Teatime from Hogfather

"I wouldn't call him immoral so much as amoral, he has no morality whatsoever. He doesn't even have a concept of morality."
Stephen Fry, describing his character Reaver, Fable

The problem with you and Kabal, Kira, is that you both knew what you were doing while you were with us, you knew you were killing and torturing innocent people, you knew you were doing awful things. You just didn't think about it because you didn't want the guilt to make you hesitate. It wasn't until you saw for yourselves the truth of our work, how other people suffered and died because of what we do, then you realized you'd been lying to yourselves the whole time. And that's the difference between the two of you and the rest of us; you see, we knew the whole time what we were doing and what the consequences of our actions might be, we knew other people paid the price because of us, we never lied to ourselves to make things easier and do you want to know why? Because we just don't care. That's the best thing about being a psychopath; we understand concepts like mercy, love and remorse, but we don't experience them as emotions. And that, my dear Kira, is why everything we do is so damn easy!
Tasia to Kira in Chapter 26 of Mortal Kombat: Desperation

Lisa: Congratulations. You're officially a sociopath.
Bart: Hey, at least I'm on a path.

In this world, it's KILL or BE KILLED!
Flowey, Undertale

His eyes, unfathomably empty, devoid of all compassion... all humanity... No one has eyes like that... no one!
Captain America, describing his Arch-Enemy Red Skull

Blofeld is an unpredictable, dangerous and utterly ruthless megalomaniac of the most diabolical kind. He is also intensely sadistic and malicious, describing himself to James Bond as 'the author of all your pain'. Throughout the film, he plays cruel and elaborate games with James's mind concerning his past and the people he has lost his entire life - Vesper, M, his parents, etc. Blofeld also possesses little self-preservation, despite his sophisticated manner.
James Bond Wiki description of the most recent incarnation of Ernst Stavro Blofeld from Spectre

He's a fat, manipulative, bigoted, intolerant sociopath.
Kyle, describing is friend Cartman, South Park

Jaune Arc: What is wrong with you? How can you be so broken inside?! To take so many lives, and then come back here and rub it in our faces like it's something to be proud of?! ALL WITH THAT DAMN SMILE ON YOUR FACE! Well? SAY SOMETHING!
Cinder Fall:...Who are you again?
Jaune to Cinder in "The More The Merrier", RWBY
