Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })This is the motivation of an amoral character seeking... well, amusement. It's not that they enjoy being good or evil — they may not know or care about the difference — but they do whatever they feel like without regard for others. They don't need a motivation or justification for doing anything beyond the amusement of the act itself. As a result, they almost inevitably do things that are dickish, maybe even cruel, but generally not outright evil. This same character will lead you into a trap, fight you to the death… and then stop on the brink of killing you to laugh and say "Are you all right?" They won't kill the hero, because they find their attempts to save the day amusing, or are intrigued by the sheer selflessness of their thinking. They may help the hero, they may help the villain, they may do both at once or screw over both at once. They are rarely if ever a driving force behind a story, but they nonetheless play a significant role. And why do they do all this? Why do they switch sides so often? Why are they working below the Big Bad when they're just as powerful and intelligent as they are, if not more? Why did they make out with the hero of the same gender?
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Because it was fun. They'd do just about anything for a lark, really.
Please note, this is different from For the Evulz. Whereas a character who commits evil acts For the Evulz does so because they like seeing other people suffering, if this character does evil things it is only because they shatter the boredom of everyday life — the character's not out to hurt anyone per se, but they don't care (much) if they do.
They usually believe Victory Is Boring, and if they're a Punch-Clock Hero or a Punch-Clock Villain, they're in it primarily for the entertainment value. They're incredibly dangerous to trust, and even they know it, perhaps noting how foolish the hero is to trust them. In action movies, they can be a really awesome fighter, but they won't attack either side unless there's some entertainment value to be had, or if their life is in danger.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })If they stick with the good guys all the way through, when victory comes, they may leave to have more wacky adventures, or maybe character development will have them taking things more seriously.
Just how much they care about collateral damage and hurting innocent people (if at all) varies. One of the few ways to really make an It Amused Me character take things seriously is to put one of their playthings in danger.
Often such a character will be the Wild Card, an Enigmatic Minion, or Chaotic Neutral. A common saying of The Trickster character, the Eccentric Millionaire, and the Great Gazoo. But be wary of the character devolving into Chaotic Stupid.
As you may have noticed, the line dividing For the Evulz and It Amused Me is something of an academic distinction. It is often hard to tell from a single act whether a character enjoys evil actions solely for the amusement value of the acts (It Amused Me) or whether they also/mostly enjoy the thrill of acting evilly (For the Evulz). Generally, a character who truly does things For the Evulz will do things that aren't fun or interesting in the name of evil, which they seek at every opportunity — a character who does things because It Amused Them wouldn't bother because if it's not fun or interesting, why do it? Such characters are not necessarily without a sense of morality, as they have been known to minimize the collateral damage of their schemes, for example, or even to stop what they're doing if they think they're harming the 'wrong' person or people. Someone motivated by For the Evulz would never do this.
On the other end of the scale, when a villain repeatedly gives this justification for supporting the protagonists, it can overlap with I Was Just Passing Through.
The trope is usually all the motivation one needs if one is a Troll. See also The Gadfly, who does things that trolls do, but for reasons besides amusement.
Subtropes include Teasing from Behind the Language Barrier, Delighting in Riddles, and Loves Secrecy.

In Aladdin: The Series, this is why the entity called Chaos does what he does, for the most part, because he thinks spreading chaos and discord is fun. (Although, he does seem to like pissing off Mirage most of all.)

Why, because like his brand of magic, he can destroy you just as easily a help you. It's likely that in the war of the ancients he's the one that threw the first punch

In Trading Places, the Duke brothers decided to do their "social experiment" out of boredom and for a $1 bet, and completely ruined one of the protagonist's lives (they did help the other protagonist, but that was really only out of boredom as well; they didn't give a damn about him, and were planning to ruin him afterwards as well).

Loki has shades of this when he isn't doing things For the Evulz. Especially notable is the Marvel Adventures Loki who is far less malevolent and more just an omnipotent trickster. He even admits defeat after Captain America humiliated him and televised it to the the entire state of New York, impressed and amused that a mortal managed to pull off such an elaborate trick against the god of mischief.

In the Dragon Age series, several characters mention this being one of Flemeth's (A.K.A. The Witch of the Wilds A.K.A. Mythal) main qualities; she is not above helping someone in one instance only to lead them to their doom in the next, solely for the fun of it. Flemeth herself even admits this.

Uncle Time is an Odd Job God with this attitude.
Bun-bun can veer into this too if he's in a good mood, especially with his "friends", whom he has come to grudgingly care about a tiny little bit. For the Evulz is a better characterization for many of the things he does, though.

Xellos, from Slayers. After about fifteen episodes' worth of hunting for the Claire Bible, it turns out that he knew where it was all along. He just didn't tell Lina and the others because he found it more entertaining to watch their antics as they went on multiple wild goose chases for the better part of a season. He also is prone to "forgetting" to state key pieces of information to watch the results.

Urumi Kanzaki in Great Teacher Onizuka. While her actual reasons for hating adults is more complicated, she states her class terrorism to be a means of "killing time". Being a child prodigy leaves her often bored with the usual lectures, leading her to spend her class time giving teachers very hard questions, sabotaging their equipment, and other pranks. She eventually stopped coming to school altogether, until brought in by Miyabi to "kill time" with Onizuka.

Bart from The Simpsons is a personification of this trope. In the past, he has played pranks on his family, school faculty, and the town itself, but was usually remorseful if his pranks had hurt someone badly. In the more recent episodes, Bart pulls pranks just to get a laugh and make himself amused, no matter how bad someone gets hurt. He gets upset whenever someone does try to punish him for playing a prank too far, as if they took his only source of entertainment away.

Orochimaru from Naruto gives this as his reason for arranging the war against the Village Hidden in the Leaves.
Also from the series, the Big Bad affected a goofball 'Tobi' persona for no tangible reason, especially since most of Akatsuki already knew it was fake, which can only lead to the conclusion that he did it for shits and giggles. And this might be why he pretended to be Madara, too.

The whole reason why Scamalot exists. Specifically, James Veitch, in his TED Talks on the subject, has given this as one of his two reasons for replying to obvious scams — he wants to annoy them as much as they annoy him (the other being that the scammers end up wasting their time on him instead of conning more gullible people).

Whereas most incarnations of The Joker are a For the Evulz Monster Clown, some versions of the character (particularly Golden/Silver Age ones) fall into this category.

In The Testament of Sister New Devil, Yahiro Takigawa, a boy at Mio and Basara's school, mentions befriending the latter because he found it amusing how he instantly became hated by all the guys at school due to being fought over by Mio and Yuki, another girl in his class that seems to be a childhood friend and like Mio, is considered an untouchable idol by the boys. When Basara asks if that wouldn't be a problem for him as well being associated with him, Yahiro casually mentions throwing him under the bus if it ever came down to it.

In one episode of Highlander, Joe Dawson's daughter is kidnapped by an immortal with a grudge against Methos. In order to get her back, the immortal orders Joe to lead Methos to him for an ambush. All throughout the day and night, Methos talks about the bond growing between Joe and himself, and the unlikeliness of their friendship, until Joe finally snaps and tells the truth about the ambush, at which point Methos tells Joe that he's known all along. When Joe demands to know why Methos drew things out over the whole day, the explanation is: "I'm easily amused."

Dungeon Keeper Ami: This is essentially Mukrezar boiled down into a single sentence. He's not an Omnicidal Maniac, he's simply a very bored, imaginative, and creative bastard. Takes on a meta-twist considering he was the player character of the first game.

Flash Gordon (1980). At the beginning of the movie Emperor Ming tells his Dragon Klytus that he's bored and asks him what plaything Klytus has for him. Klytus tells him about the Earth, and Ming starts inflicting a series of disasters on our planet. Later on he tells Flash Gordon that when he destroys planets, he does so for his (and the great god Dyzan's) "mutual pleasure".
Maybe a subversion because he tells Zardoff that he uses this method to test whether the people of Earth suspect Ming's existence. If they do, they are a threat and must be destroyed.

Harry Potter
Peeves the Poltergeist is a literal spirit of chaos. His pranks are never fatal, but there's nothing he loves more than causing trouble or shattering the monotony of daily life. Most of the teachers can exercise a limited degree of control over him, but the only people he listens to regularly are Albus Dumbledore, the Bloody Baron, and his human counterparts, the Weasley Twins (and that was only once, during their escape from Umbridge... and they asked him to do something he no doubt would've done anyway).
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Fudge spends the whole Quidditch World Cup trying to talk to the Bulgarian Minister of Magic, who apparently doesn't speak any English. Except it turns out he does. ("Vell, it vas funny.")

The titular character Toriko is this, without being on the side of evil anytime, whenever there's food involved that is. While venturing for a rare ingredient, there will most often be some Bishokuya that are after it for some overall good reason, but Toriko makes it blatantly obvious he just wants to eat it and nothing more. But there's always a villain after the ingredient to, so he ends up opening a can of whup-ass anyway because they violate his code.

In In the Company of Men, another take on the "Dangerous Liaisons" concept, a man named Chad, incensed at his girlfriend for leaving him, convinces a schlub named Howard to get revenge on womankind by targeting and psychologically tormenting a vulnerable deaf employee. When the plot backfires and Howard falls in love with her, he returns to Chad, who shows him his girlfriend lying in his bed. When he demands to know why then, did he encourage him to go down this road in the first place, Chad replies, "Because I could".

After Omi's skills and use of Shen Gong Wu didn't work, he simply asked for the pebble, and it was given to him. When Omi asked Dashi why he allowed him to go through so much trouble just to get the box, His answer was: "Well first, it was funny".

Everything the Janitor from Scrubs does to JD.
Kelso does this a few times as well. In fact, just about every character has one moment.
Jordan has explicitly described her motivation for tormenting people as "for funsies".
Dr. Cox constantly torments Nervous Wreck Doug Murphy for this reason, with notable cases being when Cox gives him 30 seconds to find a clipboard (that Cox is holding out of Murphy's line of sight) or this scene.
There was also that time he made Turk feel bad about betting on a patient's life for no other reason than "poops and giggles."

Heartseed in Kokoro Connect constantly explains that the reason he continually screws with the protagonists' mental and physical states (i.e. switching bodies, releasing their innermost desires, reversing their ages, and allowing them to hear each other's thoughts) is for no greater reason than it entertains him to watch them constantly struggle. The light novel explains that he is actually doing it to prepare them for facing Second, who is legitimately messing with them out of malicious intent, but the anime adaption never got that far, due in large part to the extremely cruel "prank" several of the Japanese crew and cast members pulled on an auditioning voice actor.

Carmen Sandiego steals the hardest things in the universe to steal just to prove she can. The TV versions have it explained this way: She likes the challenge of detective work and outwitting people, but criminals aren't the brightest critters. The people actually worth challenging were other detectives, but she couldn't do that as a good guy; time for a Face–Heel Turn, then. She considers her most glorious caper not to be stealing the Eiffel Tower, a country's entire gold supply, or anything of actual value... but stealing her own detective records from ACME itself.

Garfield. His overriding motive for playing practical jokes, messing with people's heads, and generally just being mean and insensitive is that it's simply too much fun to not screw with people.

A lot of what Chris McLean does in Total Drama is for his own amusement. He admits to putting a quicksand trap in one challenge for no particular reason, among other things. And while he does get crueler and more apathetic in later seasons, his main motivation for his deeds is either pumping more drama out of the show, or getting a few good laughs.

In With Strings Attached, Brox, Grunnel, and As'taris are sadistic practical jokers. Brox's given name is, in fact, "Funny." (The four would violently disagree with this.) Much of what Brox does is at least partially For the Lulz. Even Grunnel, who is genuinely fond of the four (at least, they're not his enemies), pulls some fairly nasty shit on them, including making them climb a hundred-foot staircase and not bothering to warn George that Ma'ar is a nympho or of her, um, tendencies during sex.

The Order of the Stick
Most of Belkar's actions are either this or For the Evulz. He particularly likes messing with other people's heads in harmless but disturbing ways. Often, he'll do something that people don't expect from him just because it will confuse them, like paranoia-inducing bouts of niceness.
Xykon also entertains himself in ways that straddle the line between this trope and For the Evulz:

In the "No Mercy" path, Flowey explains that, at one point, he tried (and succeeded in) making everyone in the Underground happy, but as it failed to evoke any empathy in him, he slowly got ground down to The Sociopath we see in the game, harming and manipulating others just to find any kind of alleviation from his sheer boredom.

The final boss in Tomba! fits right into this trope despite being known for only the last piece of the game. When you confront him he flat out states that he made all the other Evil pig Wizards for you to play with and thinks of the world as a giant toybox. He even calls your fight with him a game in the squeal!

The man with the hat from xkcd, given that most of his character is based around his nonchalant cruelty. His exploits include feeding rocks to children in parks; selling angry bobcats to people through the internet in place of office chairs; and pretending to smile at people on trains, so that when they smile back, he has an opportunity to leer at them.

The motive for Lu Bu's involvement in the battles of Guandu and Chibi in Dynasty Warriors 6. Lu Bu took part in these battles in the hope that he could find some amusement. He thought that Chibi had its interesting moments. But at Guandu, he thought that the armies of Cao Cao and Yuan Shao were nothing but pathetic worms squirming about. It also didn't concern him that Cao Cao, Yuan Shao and Sun Quan took offence to his intrusions.

When Admiral Leary is ordered to leave Captain Badaya in charge of the fleet, he suspects it's because leaders at Fleet Command who want to carry out a coup against the civilian government expect Badaya, a notorious loose cannon and no lover of the civilian government, will do something to precipitate a crisis they can take advantage of. When Leary returns and nothing has happened, Badaya, who had otherwise no idea what was going on, recognized the fact the only reason he'd have been given command was because of the expectation he would do something outrageous. So, he found it hilarious to utterly confound whoever was trying to use him by doing absolutely nothing outside of his established orders.

In the 2013 musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mike Teavee gets elevated from the Spoiled Brat of the book to an Enfant Terrible via this trope. The reason he is allowed to play all the video games, etc. he wants because it's the only thing that he enjoys doing that doesn't run the risk of bringing harm upon himself or — far more often — others, and no adult in his life is able to control him otherwise. When he isn't glued to a screen, he's setting a cat on fire, chloroforming a nurse, stealing a German tank, etc. and according to his mother "the authorities request/That little Mike not leave the house." Instead of simply finding a Golden Ticket in a Wonka Bar, he steals one directly by hacking the Wonka Factory computers — and it's suggested that he didn't want the prize so much as the thrill of outsmarting Mr. Wonka in this manner. Come the day of the tour, Mike's constant need for quick amusement leads to him deciding to try out the Television Chocolate setup on himself; once he's zapped into Cyberspace he runs amok there too before he's "retrieved" by the others.

4chan and its associated... things (e.g., Encyclopedia Dramatica) are the ones who coined the term "for the lulz". There's an infamous case where they sent emails to The Oprah Winfrey Show bragging about their strength as an organized syndicate of child molesters (rest assured, they aren't) just so they could trick Oprah into saying "over nine thousand penises" on national television.

In the "Hero Mode" of Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, the reason the Earth gets thrown into chaos with the Black Star Dragon Balls is because Omega Shenron thinks, quote, "peace is boring". Finding out that all of this destruction and suffering is for such a frivolous reason is what pushes the custom character to his Rage Breaking Point and allows him to turn Super Saiyan.

Dax is one of the most trustworthy and dutiful officers on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and very reliable when it comes to important things. However, being over 350 years old and having seen and done more things than most people ever will, she outright refuses to give in to boredom and instead constantly works to keep her life exciting and entertaining. For some reason, this includes marrying the most uptight and humorless Klingon in the galaxy.

In Noob, Gaea's most convoluted plans can have one of two purposes: making more in-game currency or humiliating her Straw Misogynist guildmate. Both the webseries and the comic have a point where she feeds her guildmate false info about the player that he admires just to create an awkward situation next time the two run into each other. And makes sure to be present when it happens.

He does agree to join in if Hal can beat his best student, Ch'p, a cute looking squirrel like creature, who proceeds to be the ever-loving tar out of Hal without even giving him a chance to fight back. Kilowog then admits he was going to join him anyway. He just wanted to see Hal "fight the squirrel."

Gargoyles: The whole episode "The Mirror" consists of faerie trickster Puck trolling Demona at every step, and having a blast doing it. Given that she wants him to Kill All Humans for her, we should probably be happy that he's so uncooperative.
Likewise the episode "Possession," he's actually kind of doing something nice for our heroes... in the most convoluted and annoying way that he can think of.

In So I'm a Spider, So What? this is the sole motivation of Evil God D. She even outright admits to Kumoko that she's observing her solely for the entertainment of watching a weak spider struggle to survive.
The worst instance of this is her creation of the Skill System to prevent a global catastrophe. She could have simply invested some of her own energy to do so, but she thought this method would be more entertaining. It just required another goddess to be trapped for thousands of years as a living battery while millions if not billions of souls reincarnate into a hellish existence. And just to add insult to injury, she got bored with the whole thing and ignored it in favor of video games.

Journey to Chaos: Trickster gods in general do these things for amusement, because they are all children of the Goddess of Chaos. During A Mage's Power alone we have the following examples.
Tasio the Trickster is a public nuisance in every city of Tariatla. According to a Roalt city wall commander, he would destroy a civilization or raise it to a new level of prosperity on a whim. "Most of the time, he's just a pest."
Zaticana, the goddess of language, caused a Curse of Babel because she thought the resulting confusion would be hilarious.

Par for the course in Death Note:
In the first chapter, Ryuk, a god of death, drops his notebook of death in the human world because he's bored. It falls into the hands of Light Yagami, who decides to use it to try bending the world to his will because, he explains, he too is bored, though his boredom extends to the point of outright disgust. He plays far too many unnecessary — but entertaining — mind games with the police for it to be anything else.
Light's primary antagonist L, a supergenius detective, as an expy of Sherlock Holmes, chases Light's alter ego for the lulz. Part of L's reputation, again like Sherlock Holmes, is that he refuses to take on a case that doesn't interest and challenge him, even though he's leagues above the rest of the world's police.
L's behavior is imitated by his fellow detectives and successors Near (who wants to win the game) and Mello (who wants to defeat Near in the game). This is made apparent in the first special one-shot chapter when Near refuses to try and go after C-Kira because he wasn't interested. He believes L would have done the same.

In Danganronpa, the mastermind Monokuma/Junko Enoshima sets up the killing game for this reason. More specifically, she is the second smartest person on Earth, so everything in life is extremely boring for her- except despair, which she finds to be unpredictable, and thus the only source of amusement for her in life. Even her own despair thrills her, leading to her building routes for her to lose into her plans. In fact, after killing most of humanity and destroying almost the entire world on an environmental level, she is only defeated when she chooses to allow it, as it’s more amusing and she’s looking forward to the despair of death.

Season 4 Megabyte in ReBoot, though he doesn't get enough screen time to change sides. He even says the trope name when asked about why he would disguise himself as Bob and marry Dot.
Also his sister, Hexadecimal. In spite of being a virus, she will mostly keep to herself until she gets an idea. Her most successful diabolical plot actually was targeting her brother. The rest of Mainframe falling victim to it was just an amusing side effect. She only picked a side near the end, and it wasn't "siding with Mainframe" so much as "siding with Bob". The only reason that she would defend Mainframe at that point would be because it would distract Bob, make him unhappy, and not want to chat.

In Mahou Sensei Negima!, Tsukuyomi pretty much has this as her modus operandi. Unfortunately, the things that seem to amuse her are excessive violence, and Setsuna.
Evangeline also fits this perfectly. She loves giving Negi outrageous orders just to see if he'll go through with them, such as demanding that he lick her feet before she would teach him magic.
Haruna is also like this, although in a (slightly) more benign way.

Dragon Ball Super:
Beerus actually uses this to spare planets. Since his biggest two concerns are eating and napping (since his predominant emotion before meeting Goku was boredom), his usual procedure was to visit a world and demand their finest cuisine and sometimes luxury creature comforts. If he's pleased, he'll depart the planet peacefully, if not, well... Part of his Establishing Character Moment was that he was eating the food of a planet's best (and terrified) chefs; he liked the food, but deemed it too salty, so he destroyed a full half of the planet and left.

The Elder Scrolls:
This seems to be the primary motivation for Sanguine, the Daedric Prince of Debauchery and Hedonism. He seems to exist for the purpose of tempting mortals into sin through various vices, and his Myriad Realms of Revelry in Oblivion constantly reform to become the pleasure paradise of whoever is visiting. In Oblivion, he sends the player on a quest in which his/her task is to cast a spell that removes all clothes from everyone affected in a middle of a prominent nobles' banquet (and fails to inform him/her that he/she will also become one of its victims). In Skyrim, after sharing a few drinks with a disguised Sanguine, the character wakes up in a completely diferent city at least a day after, and can set out on a quest to rediscover what it was s/he was doing in the meantime (which included wedding rings, goats, and temple desecration).
While Sanguine is the most prominent example, this seems to be the modus operandi for most of the Daedric Princes (though some mix it with their Blue-and-Orange Morality). In Oblivion, Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of Corruption, uses the player to corrupt the soul of an honorable paladin just because he can. Meanwhile, Boethiah, Prince of Plots, organizes a brutal tournament for the player for no real reason; he's just bored. And if Sheogorath is involved, chances are this trope will be invoked. Or not, it depends on his mood, really. When he gives you the Wabbajack, it's probably just because he wants to see what you'll do with it.

A Song of Ice and Fire. Jaime Lannister gives this as a reason for some of his actions, especially the occasional altruistic ones; after being made drunk and forced into swearing an oath at sword-point, he decides to keep it, simply because he thinks it will be funny for the Kingslayer to keep an unreasonable oath that nobody in Westeros would blame him for breaking. Eventually he discovers that Good Feels Good, and acts more honourably for that reason, but this is the excuse he gives to anyone who questions his actions, and he never loses his contemptuous Deadpan Snarker attitude.

In One Piece, this is Mihawk's justification for destroying Don Krieg's fleet and pursuing the survivors: He was bored, and they were there. He also allows Zoro to live following their duel for the same reason: Zoro has potential to be amusing for a very long time, once he Takes A Level In Badass. And after the Time Skip, that's just what he's done... thanks to Mihawk himself teaching him the ways of the sword. Zoro proposing that is the only thing in the series so far that made Mihawk laugh.
In fact, it seems the more powerful someone is, the more likely they are to do immoral and/or pointless things for kicks. Crocodile constantly sent sandstorms to Yuba to keep hindering the efforts of an optimistic old man searching for water. He even admits that there's no point in doing so as it has no connection to his Evil Plan; he's just doing it For the Evulz.

Two minor characters from Teen Titans, Thunder and Lightning, terrorize people because they find it "amusing". They don't take the feelings of the people around them into account, something Beast Boy calls them out on. (Thunder eventually realized that they were hurting people and turned on his brother, and Lightning eventually figured it out too, just in time for them to help stop the real threat.) Thunder and Lightning are loosely based off of Japanese thunder gods (Raijin, in particular) who are said to cause all sorts of destructive mischief for their own amusement.
In another episode, the team encounters a green, extraterrestrial dog that they mistake for Beast Boy. After some wacky hijinks, the dog explains the situation to them.

This appears to be the main motivation of Discord in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (it helps that he's voiced by John de Lancie). When he first breaks free, he immediately starts throwing Equestria into chaos with cotton candy clouds that rain chocolate milk, corn popping spontaneously in the fields, and apples growing to tremendous sizes and making the rabbits that eat them grow long deer-like legs. He does end up purposely "breaking" and brainwashing the Mane Six, but it's ambiguous whether even this puts him over the line into For the Evulz territory—they essentially declared themselves his enemies first, after all, and once they're no longer a threat he leaves them alone.
His reappearance in the third-season episode "Keep Calm and Flutter On" seems to confirm this. Here, Discord is shown as simply a powerful jerkass who wants his own way and resents having the threat of the Elements of Harmony held over his head while the ponies try to "reform" him more or less against his will—but who may also be at least somewhat redeemable after all.

In Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, this is why Dr. Evazan sets up Aphra and Triple-Zero's Chained Heat situation during the Worst Among Equals arc. While he does set it up as a twisted sociological experiment, he admits that it's mostly a means for him and Ponda to entertain themselves while hiding from the law.
The Legends story Vader's Quest end with Palpatine why he should allow the derelict Malla Malla to live after defying him. Malla Malla answers "because it amuses you to do so", to which the Emperor chuckles and says "Quite. Well played, little one."

Jinx, in League of Legends is an amoral terrorist out to have fun. Word of God says that she doesn't really want to murder anyone, she just likes to blow things up — and she doesn't trouble herself with minutiae like whether anyone is in/or/near the thing she wants to blow up.

Most of Hisoka's actions in Hunter × Hunter, if not ALL of them, are based around either finding someone strong to fight against or building someone up to become someone strong to fight against, to the point of calling a battle off if he finds out his designated adversary can no longer fight. Hisoka behaves like this because he gets incredibly sexually aroused fighting a Worthy Opponent.

Although he definitely has a certain ethical desire to aid the good and punish the wicked, the nameless protagonist of Yojimbo seems to be motivated a fair amount by this. He only got involved in the gang war by throwing a branch in the air and he is clearly amused by the prospect of earning a little cash while exterminating the two gangs by playing them against each other.

Taken to it's logical extreme in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Double Trouble has no stake in the war yet helps the Horde conquer Salineas and nearly all of Etheria while destroying Glimmer's relationship with her friends solely for money and chaos. Afterwards, they give the Horde the same treatment when Glimmer hires them, by tricking Catra into sending her troops into an ambush, decimating them, and turning Hordak against her. When it's all done, Double Trouble returns one last time just to rub it in and see Catra's horrified face.

South Park:
Eric Cartman relishes on the trope whenever he isn't extracting revenge. He will go to any lengths to piss people off or make someone miserable as long as it amuses him, especially if that person is Kyle.
Mysterion's reasoning for why Coon and Friends keeps that name even after the Coon was kicked out: "Because it pisses Cartman off beyond belief, and I find that extremely funny."

He even mentions how he turned down a role in the Harry Potter movies just to torment Trebek.

Apparently played straight in Atlas Shrugged when Francisco d'Anconia builds a worthless copper mine, just to have a laugh when a socialist government loots it to provide a "higher standard of living for the people", only to find it worthless. He tells reporters shortly before the story breaks that he came to New York to "witness the farce" (everybody thought he was referring to a sleazy divorce scandal). Shortly afterwards, we find him telling Dagny how amused he was at the prospect of the collapse of Wyatt Oil and all of the world's great industries that he would destroy with more apparent pranks. Later subverted when we find out that he is one of the "destroyers" (or strikers) who is destroying industry so the looters will gain nothing of value and capitalism can start anew after their downfall.

Xom of Dungeon Crawl, who likes to give you really nice weapons that you have no skill in, give you armor while you're wearing (unremovable) cursed armor, watch you eat poisonous food, and so on. And that's when he's being "nice". When he's feeling mean towards you or, heaven forbid, you begin to bore him, he'll summon demons at you, give you potentially horrid mutations, enchant your enemies' weapons, or get really creative and make all stairs to leave the current level move around and slide away from you when you try to flee. Also, throwing a bolt of divine lightning at you is considered a "good" effect, and he has a chance of shielding you from it (it's "good" because your enemies get zapped too... assuming you were fighting something that was more of a threat than a bolt of lightning).

Our Little Adventure's story revolves around an artifact that Quizmalia, the Chaotic Neutral goddess of Fate and Fortune, created and left in the mortal world for fun. This artifact grants wishes, full stop, with zero limitations. Quizmalia's perverse sense of humour got her De-Powered by the other gods and the artifact dismantled before someone could use it to put on a show.

Touhou has a lot of this:
Fairies have little restraint, less sense of mortality (being immortal as long as the aspect of nature they represent exists), and very poor memories, resulting in an entire species of perpetual children that never learn from their mistakes, resulting in them doing things that make no sense other than because they thought it would be funny. A lot of Touhou Sangetsusei is about the Three Mischievous Fairies invoking this trope.
Tewi, Nue, and Mamizou are all canonically pranksters. Tewi is prone more to scamming, but still sometimes screws with people for no gain, and it's not clear if she has any real use for money.
Seiga spends most of her time floating around people who interest her or working on bizarre scams.
Several incidents essentially happened because someone with too much power got bored, most obviously Tenshi in Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, though this has lessened in more recent games.
Fanon tends to portray this as the major driving force for Yukari and Yuuka, but canon doesn't particularly back this up. In Yukari's case, canon holds that she spends most of her time simply sleeping. According to herself.

The titular protagonist of Diabolik steals because he likes the challenge, not because he needs to. In fact, he's filthy rich and a capable engineer, inventor, actor, chemist, gymnast, car racer and detective, and could easily support himself honestly with any of those professions or by simply marketing his perfect masks. Also, he'll occasionally prank Ginko or someone else just to enjoy their reaction.

Looking for Group. This is part of the reason why Richard follows Cale on his adventure to protect those in need. The other part is For the Evulz.... Do note, he has never been in on the quest, he pretty much just tags along because of the opportunity for destruction, the pleasure of killing, and the fact that watching Cale attempt to convince the survivors of Richard's onslaughts to forgive him on his lapses in morality, and steadily getting more and more disillusioned and cynical as the adventure unfolds, relieves him of boredom.
Later on, it is explained he has a good... well, he has a reason: being an evil psychopathic Jerkass was fueling his power as a semi-immortal regenerating lich. As he actually started to care, he felt some amount of pain when injured for the first time in who knows how long. He seems to come to feel that the cost is getting too high.

The Umgah of Star Control II are essentially intergalactic pranksters. Their favorite targets are the Lovable Coward Spathi, whom they like to scare the pants off of, but they also trick the Ilwrath into fighting a civil war and another race, and declaring the main character a "Great Enemy" For the Lulz after he releases them from mind control (although they do give him rewards first). When you rescue their entire race from Mind Control, they gladly thank you by giving you half a dozen of their ships... and then attack you with endless waves of identical ones. Nothing stopping you from just running away with your "reward", of course, but it says a lot about them that they will hand over some of their own ships and crews, just to make sure you put up a good challenge when they immediately betray you.

On the Firefly episode "Shindig", Mal stands victorious over Atherton Wing whom he has just, through fortunate happenstance, defeated in a duel. Upon being told he must kill him rather than allow him to lie there in defeat, he replies, "Mercy is the mark of a great man," then lightly stabs Wing in the abdomen. "Guess I'm just a good man." He then stabs him again and finishes with, "Well, I'm all right." Upon being chastised with, "You didn't have to wound that man.", Mal quips back, "Yeah, I know, it was just funny."
River seems to make commentary designed to deliberately anger or annoy Jayne just because it is amusing to her. Particularly when she insinuated that he has a "girl's name" and solemnly warns him that "I can kill you with my brain."

The King of Super villains, The Dark is sometimes prone to this in Brennus. His daughter Gloom Glimmer claims the reason the old system for classifying superpowers was so confusing, was because he used his powers to sneak into the meeting of scientists creating it and telepathically screw with their heads. The reason? He was bored. Later in the story, when Wyrm questions why he didn't cut ties with Mindstar after discovering someone had altered her and Basil's memories of their lives before living in New Lennston he responds with: "And ruin the suspense? This is the most interesting thing to happen in years!" Cue Face Palm from Wyrm.

Saiyuki has numerous examples. Heaven is unchanging, and therefore said to be MINDNUMBINGLY DULL, which provides the motivation for the "merciful goddess" Kanzeon to do all sorts of things, from saddling her notoriously dull nephew with the heretic monkey-like Goku in Gaiden, just for the lolz, to forcing Sanzo and his party to take the physical road to India instead of the heavenly one, which would get there infinitely faster. She says the latter is 'cause they need to grow over the journey, but admits it's also because it's much more interesting that way.
While Kanzeon is a bit of a bitch, she's ultimately on the side of the main characters, if only because one is her nephew, but Nii/Kenyuu/Ukoku is a genius who finds everything in life so easy it's deadly dull, so seeks out "eat or be eaten" situations so as to feel alive/find a challenge he can't meet so he can die. He is shocked by Koumyou's comment that since he finds everything boring, he must be a boring person. Koumyou is also a super-genius who in contrast is very lazy, avoids difficult situations, and can find joy in almost anything.

The animated series The Adventures of Letterman (a regular segment from the 1970s live-action series The Electric Company: The motivation of the segment's villain, the Spellbinder. Sometimes, it is harmless fun, such as turning custard into red-hot mustard, but too often the Spellbinder got his yuks at turning planes into plants, railroad bridges into ridges and school buses into octopuses, and freeing a hungry, angry lion from his cage and making him go into a rage ... and the victims would be entire classes of children, their teachers and chaperones. So seeing young children suffer and possibly be killed ... all because the Spellbinder might say, "It Amused Me!" (Fortunately, the series' protagonist, Letterman, was always there to put a stop to it.)

In the Tamers Forever Series this is Chaos's primary motivation for his long term goals.

Yu Yu Hakusho: When he discovers he's actually part-Youkai, and thus one of the most powerful beings to exist, Yusuke promptly tells everyone to "KNEEL BEFORE ME, YOU INSECTS!"... before he immediately wonders why anyone would do that, and has a good laugh at his friends' faces. In the anime, he does something similar to an elite Spirit World warrior who's actually scared Yusuke's youkai side has awakened, so Yusuke Trolls him for a while before finally going, "Relax, you sap. I'm not an evil demon. I'm just Yusuke."

This trope is Deadpool's prime motivation; for example, he once fought Bullseye while wearing a meatsuit, solely for this reason.

In Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, it's shown that Kengo and Jiro are in some psychotic love relationship. One of the side stories Tears to Shed reveals that Gentaro brainwashed them into this relationship because he's completely bored and doesn't like having emotionless dolls as his loyal subjects.

Guu of Haré+Guu. She often pretends to deliver Aesops with her actions, but always keeps ignoring them just because she can have more fun that way, and gets Hale another inch closer to a total nervous breakdown.

The reason Haruhi does anything in Haruhi Suzumiya. And considering her god-like powers, one shudders to consider what she would do if aware of them.

In Twin Star Exorcists, this is the explanation Kamui gives for most, if not all, of his actions. He states outright that his "hobby" is leaving mostly sadistic choices to humans, although it can be anything from "Do you want to die with your head crushed or your body squashed?" to "Do you want me to give you power or die?", immediately followed by "I'll wait while I count down to ten." . The reason he even considers the former is because he likes fighting strong opponents.

Q from Star Trek: The Next Generation, who it is theorized may be related in some way. Though most Trek fans tend to forget the pilot episode where Q has a very clear reason for doing what he does: to "prosecute and judge" humanity as a directive from the Q Continuum. The audience is reminded of this in the series' final episode, too, when Picard finds himself back in the same court room he encountered Q in the first time:
And by the end of that episode, Q subverts everything again by also acting secretly as Picard's defense against the judgment of the Q Continuum, and had been doing so since roughly halfway through the series, after Picard and crew saved his life while he was briefly depowered. This of course didn't stop Q from screwing with Picard and crew in relatively minor ways as secret tests of character at the same time.
One of the novels has Q say that everything he put Picard through was part of a grand scheme, then add the only reason he sent Picard and company to Sherwood Forest was just to see him in tights.
