Negi Springfield from Mahou Sensei Negima!.

  • A lawman who does not know the meaning of the word "excessive". He doesn't have handcuffs; he simply executes any criminal where he stands. He doesn't even use his handgun much, preferring to deal with whoever he considers evildoers up-close and personally. He considers the world his jurisdiction and will stop any crime at any cost, even if it means extensive transformation of himself or his comrades. He never apologizes for any collateral damage he causes (of which there is no shortage) and isn't above attacking would-be villains in their own home, before they do any actual evil or even wake up in the morning. One wonders if he answers to anyone at all. Axe Cop

Later, he aids another mad AI in a mutiny attempting to replace the entire crew of a ship with other cybernetic beings. He then, after a series of hallucinations, massacres the human resistance to a race of alien slavers, and when even they consider him too dangerous, massacres his most recent allies, and reactivates a long buried super-weapon to freeze a sun, gradually dooming an entire planet to slowly freeze to death. The Security officer, Marathon

He has sent children as young as Twelve off to wage war on his behalf. Makarov Dwyer, "Fairy Tail."

Cecil Harvey, Final Fantasy IV.
  • This monarch is characterized by his utter ruthlessness. When he was first released from his prison after five odd millenia, he challenged many people to sadistic games and subjected them to Mind Rape if they lost said games. He also Mind Raped several minor antagonists, and threatened to attack his rival, even if it would mean said rival's death. All the while, he was parasitizing the body of a young boy. He proved to not even care for said host body, willingly sacrificing said host's soul in exchange for power and motivated by his own pride. He also ruthlessly attacked a minor antagonist after what would ordinarily be a Rant-Inducing Slight, ordering his loyal monster to attack far more times than was necessary for victory. He cheats in every single game he plays, and is an arrogant Jerk Ass, to top it all off. Yami Yugi/Atem from Yu-Gi-Oh!

Sacchin, Tsukihime

    Feo Takahari 
  • This mysterious sorceress murdered a rightful king and queen and proclaimed herself the regent for the young prince, but it's an open secret that she's the one really controlling the country. She uses Black Magic to Mind Control people and force them to serve her, feeling no guilt in cases when this becomes Mind Rape and even turns lethal. Those she can't control, she sets on fire — her personal body count reaches five digits by the end of the first book, and in the second she "makes an example" of an entire town, including noncombatants. She even kills her own soldiers for thinking disloyal thoughts. The title character in The Soprano Sorceress and its sequels. For the uninitiated, she's The Hero and canonically Neutral Good, and both she and the author argue that Utopia Justifies the Means.

  • A man who has frequently led children into harm's way, this man's most notable achievement was to succumb to enemy brainwashing, leading said enemy into battle against his own people, massacring thousands. Bear in mind that he was originally responsible for leading this enemy to them by taunting an Elder God. Despite all this, he somehow regains his commission and command. Later, he nearly commits genocide by inaction, claiming that this is his nation's highest law — he's only following orders. He then switches loyalties again, when he decides to betray his government and deny a potentially lifesaving medical advance to billions to get in some girl's pants. I refer, of course, to Jean-Luc Picard

  • She killed uncounted numbers of people, abandoned her child to a heartless Ancient Conspiracy, murdered her lover, physically assaulted her protege, and left the country she'd served all her life to defect to the enemy.

  • A bioengineered killing machine with a Mad Scientist streak, unleashed on society by an axe-wielding theocrat and "civilized" by a vampire. Mister Nutt, Unseen Academicals

    • Rincewind fits, too.
  • A Cute and Psycho Genki Girl who is at best a mentally unstable Cloudcuckoolander with disturbingly ill-defined reality-warping powers, and at worst an Adorable Abomination. Despite these traits being obvious to anyone who knows her well, she is accepted by her hometown's general population, even though one of her closest friends is an expert on the occult who should know better, and is allowed around children. In her defense, however, it should be said that, contrary to rumor, she is most likely not a cannibal. Pinkie Pie, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
    • Up until that last one, I thought you were talking about Suzumiya Haruhi.
  • A deceptively cuddly-looking medical professional with a Blood Knight streak. In his first appearance, he willingly kills a civilian who was not personally endangering him, in order to ensure the safety of a self-proclaimed sociopath. John Watson, from Sherlock
  • A Nazi-era war profiteer who bankrupts himself through his inefficient use of dishonestly acquired slave labor. Oskar Schindler, Schindler's List

Lisbeth Salander, The Millennium Trilogy

  • A self-hating natural killer who treats everyone around him like dirt and has the single redeeming feature of being incredibly attractive. Becomes fascinated by a girl less than a quarter of his age, because he wants to prove to himself that he is strong enough not to suddenly eat her. Instead, he dedicates his life to ruining her. He watches her obsessively when she is asleep, without her knowledge; prevents her making friends besides him, and gets her into mortal danger multiple times. He consciously compares her to a prey animal, and himself to a predator, and uses all his facilities to make her unbearably afraid of him even while declaring his love. Eventually, he seduces her into marriage, injects her with a deadly parasite which rips her apart from the inside, and then takes her away from her loving but inept parents forever. Edward Cullen, Twilight

  • A man without a past finds himself in a secret city. He immediately begins shooting everyone who comes into his field of vision, killing even little girls who happen to be walking by. After plundering the city, eating all the (very limited amounts of) food they have, and killing almost everyone inside, he faces the newest leader of the city and drives a flurry of small girls to stab him to death with needles. He then proceeds to return to the rest of society with an army of enslaved, twisted sociopaths under the control of drugs to destroy the rest of humanity. Jack, Bioshock.

The woman abandons her brother and everyone to death in the dreamworld and returns to the real world to search for her beloved. Himemiya Anthy, Revolutionary Girl Utena
  • A rude, closed-minded, occasionally outright racist cop who constantly harasses a polite, unassuming Chinese shopkeeper. Leon Orcot, Pet Shop of Horrors

  • She killed her first victim when she was just a child herself. So was the victim. Now she pathologically lies, kills without hesitation, and says the names of her enemies every night, until they turn into a sick prayer of sorts. She is still a child, not even a teenager yet.
Arya Stark
