comment
A hired agent who is in it for the killing and torturing. There doesn't need to be killing involved; they like doing unpleasant things to people and it just so happens that there are people willing (and dumb enough) to pay them to do something they'd probably do for free. The paycheck they get at the end of the day is completely incidental; they get a huge kick out of doing violent and explosive stuff to complete strangers. On the pro-side, you could say they love their job.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Instantly identifiable by their Evil Laugh, at least one unusual signature weapon, a flashy style, and a tendency to play with their victims like a cat. Many of them, the less-restrained ones, are Ax-Crazy and often have An Axe to Grind. When on the side of the Good Guys, they are invariably the Token Evil Teammate.
Most are mercenaries, the handful who aren't are summoned and controlled with Applied Phlebotinum. They are almost never the Big Bad, because unstable maniacs don't make good or interesting plotters (usually). The Big Bad often has contempt for them for precisely this reason. Note that the Evil Overlord List discourages hiring such individuals, as they "tend to do dumb things like even the odds to give the other guy a sporting chance." In fact, it's hard to understand why any intelligent Big Bad would hire these guys, given their tendencies to attract attention by killing vast numbers of innocent bystanders, turn down easy chances to kill the hero because "it wouldn't be fun", and turn on their bosses because of trivial or imagined "insults" or just For the Evulz.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })The Blood Knight also enjoys himself without much purpose, but he just loves the fight, although both could overlap. The Combat Sadomasochist also enjoys hurting others, but differs in that they also enjoy being hurt. The Sociopathic Soldier can be extremely similar to this trope, but is retained by a single employer, usually his nation's armed forces.
Contrast the more realistic Serial Killer, who doesn't flaunt it, and the less realistic Heroic Comedic Sociopath who hangs around heroes and whose sadistic games are treated as wacky hijinx for the sake of comedy. As various examples of the latter may testify, it is all too possible for a character to sit on the fence. If two Psychos For Hire are paired together, they might be Those Two Bad Guys. If the Psycho isn't for hire, he's doing it For the Evulz. The all but canonical alignment for these characters are Neutral Evil; Chaotic Evil characters of this type usually go "freelance"; and Lawful Evil is typically more professional.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })Psychos abound in many criminal organizations and other places, so this is Truth in Television, but of course No Real Life Examples, Please!

Akechi Mitsuhide from the video game Sengoku Basara. Casual fans are shocked seeing this kind of Alternate Character Interpretation since Mitsuhide is the guy often receiving the Historical Hero Upgrade, since Nobunaga is always often the villain. Strangely, even Nobunaga is also villainous here.

Mell Kelly is a more amiable example of this trope than most, but this doesn't change the fact that she works for Narbonic Labs mostly because she likes big guns and shooting people with them. She would be a Sociopathic Hero if it weren't for what the main characters do for a living...

Though only appearing in one episode, Scorcher from Adventure Time is shown to be this. When the Ice King hires a hitman (not understanding what the term actually means) to physically hit Finn and Jake after they ground him for trying to kidnap another princess, he soon learns his error and tries to correct it. However, the mute, fire-controlling Scorcher refuses to go back on the deal, simply burning up anything Ice King offers him in an attempt to dissuade him. He only gives up trying to kill the pair when Ice King convinces him that they are already dead.

Pierre McConville from the His Dark Materials prequel novella, Once Upon a Time in the North. A hired gun who Loves the Sound of Screaming, has committed at least twenty murders, and whose idea of fun is killing his victims slowly by ripping their daemons away from them over a long period of time. Daemons in this series being the embodiment of a person's soul, with the act of touching another person's daemon being described as the most disturbing and painful violation imaginable. McConville likens the sensation to reaching into a person's chest and slowly ripping out their heart.

The Comedian of Watchmen was this to a certain extent, suggested to have merely become a masked vigilante for a reason to kill people. Despite most of his comrades recognizing this he appears to have impressed part of the mindset that led him to such actions onto every one of them, with varying reactions. He becomes a more classic example, or so it's implied, after the very government that claims vigilantes are dangerous hires him as a political assassin. He knew damn well he'd passed any sane person's Moral Event Horizon and didn't give a damn.

Drake Merwin from the Gone manages to be this despite only being fourteen-years-old. He was sent to Coates Academy for shooting a kid with an air rifle, but once everyone over the age of fifteen disappears from the FAYZ, Drake's "hired" by Caine Soren specifically because Drake likes to hurt people, and Caine thinks that can be useful for his plans to take over Perdido Beach. Drake later switches his allegiance over the Gaiaphage because it can give him greater power and more opportunities to act on his psychotic impulses.

Xenia Onatopp from GoldenEye. In addition to squeezing people to death with her legs during sex, the insane glee with which she carried out the massacre scene at Severnaya has been compared to orgasm, to the point where one may wonder if she was wielding an assault rifle or a sex toy. Given the expression her employer Ourumov has watching this, he's wondering the same thing.

Yazan Gable of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is an amoral, violent soldier whose only stated reasons for joining the Titans were: 1) His skill at killing, and 2) Having the privilege to murder AEUG supporters. He's very good at it (though surprisingly rational for someone with that sort of motivation).

Scaramouche is a Robotic Psychopath who remorselessly slaughtered an innocent village filled with men, women and children.

The final arc of Strikeforce: Morituri subverts this by demonstrating exactly why you shouldn't hire sadistic maniacs to do important jobs. The Government Conspiracy gives three Psychos For Hire superpowers to use them as assassins, whereupon two of them very quickly decide that they're being exploited and abandon their missions, and the third and most psycho one turns his mission into a pointless attention-seeking massacre and gets killed.

Childerich from Suikoden V is also an example, which has garnered criticism to his character because of his resemblance to Luca, right down to using (as a shout out) his infamous "Die pigs!!" line when killing people. One critic even described him as "Diet-Luca."

Noriko "The Blood Princess" has had homicidal tendencies since childhood and uses random slayings as moral boosters for her slaves. It's implied that her master, an unseen Manipulative Bastard, would love to be rid of her if it weren't for her "usefulness" (Helena Caine sans any morals, ever). It's revealed she's the ultimate Unfavorite, having been rejected by her "step" and biological fathers. This is somewhat tempered by the fact that she killed said fathers by poisoning and back-stabbing, respectively, and she's telling this to her the favorite half-sister while beating her half to death.

Bulleta/B.B. Hood of Darkstalkers. A bit literal on the "for hire" part. In addition to being a sadistic, deranged sociopath, she's a Bounty Hunter — the fluff specifically identifies her as a "Darkhunter," a type of bounty hunter specializing in capturing or killing monsters. She ended up summoned to the Majigen because she was considered to qualify as a "monster" by Jedah, despite being completely human... and instantly decided to kill everyone else. Even more unsettling is her innocent demeanor and resemblance to Little Red Riding Hood.

Shezar in Duel Savior Destiny is on the bad guy side simply because he likes to kill people with his own hands. He gets bored when the baddies use giant lasers and stuff to do it and unlike Mudou he seems to have no other goal than killing.
Ironically, Shezar's combat style is strictly ranged weapons.

The Jagged Alliance series is full of these, although there are far fewer psychos than mentally "stable" mercs. It is also notable that between the second and third installment in the series, when A.I.M. becomes a high-profile and almost respectable organization, most of the outright certifiable people on the roster are quietly dropped.
A notable example from the first game is Reuban, an outright psychopath who murdered his entire family with a hedge trimmer. If put on the same team with Ivan for even a short while, he will eventually pull out a weapon and attempt to kill Ivan. He will also leave if not allowed to kill a sufficient number of enemies each day. There are several other characters with these traits, including Skitz, Postie, and a few others.
The Psycho trait from Jagged Alliance 2 causes a mercenary to randomly switch to autofire and needlessly expend a lot of ammo shooting wildly at the enemy. These characters also get a morale drop if equipped with a weapon that can't autofire.

Though his motivations are equally ambition-based, Pavel from TRON: Uprising certainly qualifies. Loves the Sound of Screaming? Check. Callous Lack of Empathy? Check. Enjoys using his power to intimidate and harass allies and enemies alike? Check. Delighted at the prospect of dragging a couple of troublemakers back to his Ludicrous Gibs-splattered lair to interrogate? Check.

Willard Stenk from Missing Link is a hunter infamous for stalking and killing every kind of animal under the sun. As it turns out, he's not above working as an assassin either, and shows obvious relish in his work. Even after his employer dies in the climax, Stenk makes one final attempt to murder the heroes anyway, admitting he's not doing it for the money, but out of "shallow, self-centered pride."

Angel Eyes from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Greed aside, he enjoys too much of his job. One of his most sadistically unnecessary acts is when he forces soldiers to play music while Tuco is brutally tortured, and clearly he had done so before.

Murdoc from MacGyver. Not only does he kill people in a variety of interesting ways, he rigs cameras to photograph his victims at the moment of their death, ostensibly to prove to the person/people who hired him that victim X is really, really dead (for a while he even sent copies to the authorities "just for kicks"). He is also practically unkillable.

Pe Ell of The Druid of Shannara. He's an assassin for hire because he loves looking into people's eyes while they die, believing that it will help him to understand death. Cree Bega of The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara is a Torture Technician and cold-blooded sadist employed as The Dragon to the Morgawr; while not a mercenary he certainly demonstrates this attitude.

Grand Theft Auto V Trevor Philips Ohhhhh boy does he blend into this trope. His fuse is as short as a match stick, Trevor is the angriest, rage-filled and yet most comical of the three playable men, and easily the most psychotic protagonist in the entire GTA franchise.

In Naruto, this trope abounds. After all, it deals with a society of mercenaries where death is a commodity.
Momochi Zabuza was originally this and works for the Big Bad of the arc until he is betrayed. Cue messy end for both.
Deidara, on the other hand, took on contracts from antinationalist terrorists prior to joining Akatsuki, stating his reason for doing such was just to blow things up with his art. Even his time with Akatsuki was less about fulfilling their plans than getting even with Itachi.
Gaara before his Heel–Face Turn also qualifies for this. His main reason for acting as a shinobi was to find more people to kill and he shared a hate-hate relationship with his father/boss.
Kakuzu and Hidan are two sides of this coin. Kakuzu joined Akatsuki to gain money, power, and because he's killed everyone else he worked with. Hidan joined because it's more satisfying to kill powerful opponents and a world where he rules means more sacrifices for his god.

Barry the Chopper and the Slicer from Fullmetal Alchemist are a pair of Serial Killers who were offered a chance at life in exchange for guarding Laboratory 5. Barry in particular makes it very clear that he only accepted the offer for the chance to start cutting people up again.
While Solf J. Kimblee leans more towards being a Sociopathic Soldier, the 2003 anime adaptation's version is primarily one of these. The 2003's take on Envy likely qualifies as well, as he freely admits that he only works for Dante because of the opportunities to kill and hurt people.
Envy could have been lying, though, as Envy is wont to do, and the anime never really covered Envy's backstory, or his relationship with Dante. We know his true identity, and... pretty much nothing else.

The Falconer in the Gentleman Bastard novels starts out this way, working his magic on behalf of a vengeance-crazed killer with a knack for theatrics and clearly enjoying the murder and mayhem he wreaks a great deal. At one point he wastes valuable time figuring out the most sadistic way to force one of the main characters to kill the other. And if he'd stuck to his original idea he might not have ended up horribly mutilated by a justifiably pissed-off Locke.

In The Crossing, Washington thinks of Hessians this way for their slaughter of surrendering troops at Brooklyn.

Pegleg Pete from various Disney properties often functions as hired muscle for a smarter villain, like Sylvester Shyster, Eli Squinch, or Agent Von Weasel. In service to all three, he's shown easy willingness to try killing Mickey Mouse and his friends, with any weapon from rifles to propellers to his own fists.
Though occasionally Pete has a twinge of regret after believing he's finally dispatched his longtime enemy. After all, thug though Pete may be, he and Mickey have occasionally bonded to take on more powerful other villains.
Shyster and Pete are, incredibly, both enamored of Minnie Mouse, and in fighting over her, the employer/employee relationship has fallen apart a few times.
Pete also works as his own boss a good 60% of the time, though interestingly tends to be less brutal when not in someone else's employ.

The Horned Reaper in Dungeon Keeper. Monstrously powerful in combat, he won't take being mistreated like the other minions and will rapidly become rebellious if not treated with kid gloves.
Which is why you usually made a special small room just for him, and only release him in combat.
In the second game, Horny was ascended into a unique Juggernaut who could only be brought into play by Summon Magic after gathering all four pieces of a Talisman and he only stayed as long as you had mana to burn on him or until you dismissed him.

The Dragon Ball series has a number of these:
Tao Pai Pai charges 10 billion Zeni per kill, but nonetheless loves killing people. Hell, the very first thing he says to Goku is "Pleased to kill you."
Tambourine's character profile lists his hobby as killing people, which is also his job. It's expanded on in the anime, where after he kills Giran, a bear person who Giran was bullying tries to thank him, and Tambourine promptly cuts him down, openly admitting to the bear's son that while he killed Giran for a job, he killed the father for fun.
The Saiyan race as a whole served as this for Frieza. While their planet was annexed by Frieza, they were nonetheless bloodthirsty, genocidal Space Pirates who took pleasure in causing pain and wiping out civilizations.
Dodoria, one of Frieza's Co-Dragons. In contrast to Zarbon, who's more of a Punch-Clock Villain, Dodoria is openly sadistic, cruel, and almost as bloodthirsty as Frieza himself.
There is also Beerus. As a Destroyer Deity, it's his job to destroy planets. In Dragon Ball Super, however, he mentions that he actually enjoys seeing the planets he destroys explode, and never gets tired of the sight.

Harry Potter
Fenrir Greyback, a minor villain from the later books, has the added bonus of being a werewolf. Most Death Eaters tend to blur the line between this trope and Psycho Supporter, but Greyback isn't counted as a "true" Death Eater. He's just a mercenary who Voldemort allows to wear Death Eater robes in exchange for his hired savagery. At one point, Greyback explicitly volunteers to join an attack on Hogwarts just for a chance to murder and cannibalize children.
While completely inhuman, the Dementors also fit this pretty well, only working for the Ministry of Magic because of the opportunities it gives them to feed off peoples' misery, inevitably joining the forces of evil when they offer more opportunity to cause harm.
Old habits die harder than fantastic beasts, which is why Walden McNair made the rather enterprising choice of getting hired by the Ministry as an executioner so that his axe would be felt by animals (at least) with the approval of the magical society this time, which is equal-opportunity enough to have a place even for a bloodthirsty maniacal killer.

Parodied in Red vs. Blue with Agent Tex.
Season 11 introduces Locus, a mercenary working for the Federal Army of Chorus. Unlike Tex, he's played completely seriously. He objects to being called a "psycho" though and prefers being a "soldier".
Season 12 reveals that Felix, who we thought was a good guy, is not only more psychotic than Locus, but he is on the same side as him (that is to say, neither the Federation or the New Republic).

Emile in Halo: Reach, blatantly pointed out with the skull carved into his visor. While Word of God is that some of his sadism is just an act, it's still clear that he doesn't care about anything but killing Covenant. Frankly, though, it's a wonder the rest of the Spartan-IIIs aren't like this, what with being war orphans trained as killing machines from, in some cases, the age of four (and the rest weren't much older).

Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion
Her Rebuild of Evangelion counterpart, Asuka Shikinami Langley, averts this.
Rebuild of Evangelion has Mari Illustrious Makinami. Though unlike other examples, she's a genuinely nice girl as long as you don't let her anywhere near an EVA. When she does, then she fits this trope like a hand in a glove.

Mandy a recurring antagonist from 24. She's a more sane version of it though, coming off as a Professional Killer. Unusually for this trope, this works in the heroes favor. On Day 4 Jack notes that she's a hired gun, not a believer in the terrorist's goals, so if cornered she'd make a deal rather than commit suicide. He's right. She makes a deal for a Presidential Pardon, and is one of the few characters to survive the series.

Harmony Theory Charisma is a pretty pink pegasus that just so happens to have a literal talent for killing. Her talent constantly tells her the best ways to kill every living thing in her general vicinity, giving her the ability to take on physically stronger opponents, like griffons and dragons, while giving her a very good feeling every time she kills something. But this has also caused her to become a Ax-Crazy Dark Action Girl, who's urge to kill is forever present, whether she wants it to or not, and can not interact with the rest of pony society. After a stent in the Solar special forces, Charisma went rogue and became the dragon to criminal mastermind Max Cash. She's also the Psycho Ex-Girlfriend to Trail Blazer.

Bounty hunter Solo from Strider, specially in the 2014 entry. While in the first two games he's a Consummate Professional more interesting in finishing a contract and keeping his reputation as the strongest, the 2014 game added a much more sadistic personality to the mix, exemplified by him taunting Hiryu mid-battle about not entertaining him enough and being generally disappointed by his performance, as well as breaking into a rather jarring Evil Laugh occassionally. Once he's defeated and half-heartedly brought back to life, he goes full Ax-Crazy, fully obssessed over killing Hiryu for his previous defeat.

Anton Chigurh from No Country for Old Men is an utterly remorseless and unrelentingly evil mass murderer. He often takes lives simply for the sake of killing, as he follows a murderous and nihilistic moral code that revolves around the concept of fate and chance. He's so evil that he immediately turns on the people who hired him to take the loot for himself, making him something of an aversion to the trope.

Belkar Bitterleaf from The Order of the Stick walks a narrow line between this and Heroic Comedic Sociopath. He has become an adventurer only because he loves to kill things, and he'll happily stick his daggers into anyone, even friendly and non-hostile NPCs. He has at times even considered killing his own party members for XP.
He's gotten somewhat better recently after a Vision Quest, if only because he's realized that if he plays along with the other heroes' rules most of the time, he'll have more free reign when it comes to "stabbing the bad guys" time. He's still not a good person by any stretch, but he may just have moved up from Stupid Evil to actual Chaotic Evil.

Most Metal Gear bosses who aren't either Magnificent Bastards or Anti-Villains fall into this trope.
Vamp from Metal Gear Solid 2 displays a few of these tendencies. He takes on entire squads of Navy SEALs armed with only a large hunting knife, and always kills in a way that ensures maximum bleeding. So he can drink it.
Also, Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid, who explicitly states that he wasn't interested in a revolution, only in killing as many people as he possibly could.
Metal Gear Solid, strangely enough, also had a rare protagonist example of this trope, as Liquid Snake mentioned to Solid Snake when atop REX that [Solid Snake] enjoyed all the killing, and mentioned that this was most likely part of the reason he returned to Shadow Moses Island. Meryl also mentioned that Solid Snake also most likely felt alive when people were dying around him based on his answers.
The third game has the Fury, a deranged cosmonaut whose life goal seems to be to set the world on fire. The Pain and The Fear probably also count.

A number of mercenaries in the Iron Kingdoms are more than a little deranged. Durgen Madhammer, for example, is a Rhulic dwarf who takes the approach that responsible deployment of explosives is for wimps, and who rarely works twice for the same employer because all but the most unhinged see the blasted ruin he leaves behind, pay up, and send him on his way.

In Way of the Samurai 2, the local Big Bad, Hanzaemon Takenuma, has a Psycho For Hire named Kyojiro Kagenuma. She scares the ka-britches our of everybody, wields the most scary sword in the game, has two ridiculously overpowered attacks, and will — in several endings — continue to haunt the player after the Big Bad has been defeated. Often referred to as a 'Mad Dog', though never to her face. Call her O-Kyo at your own peril.

The anime Texhnolyze has an unexpected Psycho For Hire in Yoshi who murders innocent people and starts gang wars for the sake of amusement. While he may have an ideological purpose behind it all, it is so obscure that it only makes him look all the more hysterical.
It's rather tragic one: He comes from a world where there are no passions, no-one desires or fears anything, and death is just an irrelevant abstraction. Then he comes to Lux, and sees who people who truly care about living, due to being under a constant threat of violent death. He falls so much in love with this feeling, and thinks that the people of Lux don't appreciate it enough, that he decides to share his own newfound passion with everybody by starting a war that will swallow the entire city, allowing him to witness it's overflowing lifeforce in the fullest.

Hobgoblin's Spider-Man: The Animated Series incarnation. Norman Osborn hires him to assassinate Wilson Fisk / Kingpin, wanting to end their "partnership". When that fails, Hobgoblin switches sides and kidnaps Harry Osborn for Kingpin, then convinces Osborn to give him a better glider so they can take Fisk down together, only to pull a Starscream, run Fisk out of his own base and keep Harry hostage for himself. Fisk and Osborn are forced to rely on Spider-Man to deal with him — and that's just in his first two episodes.

Inverted in "The Train Job:" There the psycho (Niska) hires them! Niska's first Dragon, Crow, is a straight example, a Knife Nut who shares his boss's love of hurting people. He forgoes Mal's offer of simply returning the money Niska paid them after they failed their job and opts to threaten him instead by saying he'll return and "the last thing [Mal] will ever see is [his] blade." Mal's response is a small, "Darn," before kicking him into the ship's turbine. The next henchmen he makes the same offer to is much more agreeable.

Marcus Black is given this treatment again in Resurgence. His son Mercury recalls that Marcus "always had a tendency to overdo things on hired hits." On one such hit job, he went crazy and slaughtered Ren and Nora's entire hometown, including Nora's family.

In Scanners II: The New Order, the psychic Peter Drak gets a lot of enjoyment out of using his mind to mutilate and kill people in gory ways. The corrupt Commander Forrester laments that his psychopathic tendencies make him much too difficult to control even with the use of drugs.

Decil Galette of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE is what Yazan and Ali would look like if they were Enfante Terribles. A gleefully Axe-Crazy Cheerful Child, Decil views war as one giant game, and all the soldiers under his command as playthings. This attitude does not improve upon his reaching adulthood, and he now resembles his two inspirations more than ever.

In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!, while very few of the playable characters are exactly nice people, Nisha, the Gunslinger, falls right into this trope. Wilhelm is Only in It for the Money, Aurelia is an Egomaniac Hunter, but Nisha loves to kill things and hurt people (including herself) and boy is she good at it. Her attraction to the Big Bad actually grows as he becomes more openly sadistic and megalomaniacal, and they're lovers in Borderlands 2, where Nisha has been given an entire town - and filled it with bandits just so she has people to kill.

Pathfinder: Szuriel, the Horseman of War is what happens when a being of near divine status adopts the mentality of a typical Psycho for Hire. Szuriel hires out her daemons as mercenaries to mortals, demon lords, archdevils, and anyone else who is willing to pay. These campaigns inevitably result in war crimes, genocide, and the eventual betrayal and destruction of both sides, because Szuriel doesn't care about causes or contracts—only violence and the theft of souls.

Luca Blight from Suikoden II fits the standard archetype, but does his work strictly pro bono and is, in fact, the Big Bad. He is widely regarded as one of the most evil and sadistic villains in video game history. This scene makes this trait abundantly clear.

Archibald Grims from Super Robot Wars Original Generation 2, will take any job as long as it involves killing... preferably of the innocent. When the rest of the Neo Divine Crusaders get tired of his crap he simply defects to the Shadow Mirrors. He is also the enemy of the Branstein family, having caused the death of Elzam's wife by poisoning her with gas while trying to gas the rest of the colony of Elpis, thus forcing Elzam to kill his already lethally-poisoned wife to stop it.
Archibald was actually preceded by Lubikka Hakinnen from SRW Gaiden. Instead of the Bransteins, though, he targeted Tytti, having slaughtered her whole family in front of her eyes. He would've happily done this to other people, but he just takes extra pleasure if the victim is Tytti. When he got hired by the Shutedonian army, he also takes that job happily since it involves killing, and doesn't mind letting out Evil Laughs often. And then, he finally hammers it down in Tytti's breakdowns by killing her would-be-lover Ricardo and inflicted her fear of starting a new relationship.

Lynch from Kane & Lynch is a deconstruction. Lynch is a fairly realistic (if extreme) example of a person who suffers from schiophrenia with psychotic episodes, meaning he will have episodes where he becomes extremely violent, and has difficulties understanding what's real and what's in his head. He very much enjoys killing when he has an episode, but the aftermath, when he has to calmly face what he's done, can become very ugly.

HK-47 from Knights of the Old Republic is an assassination droid whose only suggestion for every situation involves violence. It's up to the player as to whether or not he gets to fully embrace his psycho-for-hire status.
In Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, the ante is upped by adding a New and Improved line of droids called HK-50s. They may seem harmless at first, until you learn that every last one of them is out to kill you. "But anonymous contributor," you might ask, "how does that make them psychotic? Everything is out to get you in KotOR" That may be true, but recall this line: "[Mocking query]: Coortaaaa... Coorta, are you dead yet?"

Berserk: Wyald is an ape-like Apostle who serves the King of Midland as the leader of the Black Dog Knights, an Army of Thieves and Whores consisting of the most heinous condemned criminals in Midland. No one knows where he came from or how he got in prison in the first place, but when the King of Midland announced the creation of the Black Dog Knights, Wyald stepped forward from the assembled criminals and asked to be made leader if he could prove himself the strongest. With the King giving his assent, Wyald proceeded to kill the next-strongest guy in a gruesome and inexplicable way, after which no one dared to challenge his authority. Under Wyald's leadership the Black Dog Knights quickly became infamous for Rape, Pillage, and Burn, visiting their depravities on the king's subjects as well as the enemies, but because of their military usefulness the King kept them garissoned on the frontier, far away from the population and the regular army. Wyald lives by a motto of hedonism, "enjoyment and excitement", which for him includes things like raping a teenage farm girl, chopping her to pieces along with her whole family, and sticking their body parts on pikes. He is also a Bad Boss, forcing his men to throw away their lives in suicidal attacks because they know he will kill them for showing the slightest instinct for self-preservation or hesitating to do whatever he orders, no matter how stupid and unreasonable. The fact that he allowed himself to be imprisoned in the first place and continues to serve the king of Midland despite his monstrous power suggests that he plays along for the fun of it, and he doesn't mind the arrangement as long as he's allowed to rape and slaughter as much as he wants.

Avatar: The Last Airbender season 3 has one in the Combustion Man, a mute assassin who Zuko hires to kill Team Avatar. His main method of attack/murder is projecting blasts that cause whatever they hit to explode, and he doggedly chases Team Avatar all the way to the Western Air Temple to do the job. In his final episode, Zuko, having undergone a Heel–Face Turn, confronts him during his latest assault and first threatens not to pay, and then offers to pay him double, if he backs off. In response, the Combustion Man attacks him before turning back to the Gaang.

Halo:
Emile in Halo: Reach, blatantly pointed out with the skull carved into his visor. While Word of God is that some of his sadism is just an act, it's still clear that he doesn't care about anything but killing Covenant. Frankly, though, it's a wonder the rest of the Spartan-IIIs aren't like this, what with being war orphans trained as killing machines from, in some cases, the age of four (and the rest weren't much older).
In Halo Wars, there's Arbiter Ripa 'Moramee, who was picked right out of prison, and considered irredeemably evil even by the rest of the Covenant.

Although instead being recruited -and also seemingly only a little off-kilter-, Tempest Hawker and Tenzan Nakajima of Super Robot Wars Original Generation end up growing into them, the reasons being different. Hawker joined the DC for revenge, Tenzan because he knows his way around a robot's controls. Over the course of repeated and humiliating defeats at the hands of the Hagane and its small squad, including Tempest's "rival" and a girl that looks a bit like Hawker's dead daughter, they each lose sight of many things about life. In the final battles against them, they use powerful Valsion Customs... which serve as the straw that breaks the camel's back and induce complete, psychotic behavior and screaming "DIEDIEDIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" at the top of their lungs.

Full Metal Panic!:
Gauron who actually had to be restrained from killing the pilot on an airplane he was hijacking, even when none of the other terrorists could fly the plane. He's been shown to also shoot and kill his employers when they say things that irritate him. Furthermore, while utilizing a Lambda Driver seems to drive another terrorist into a kind of delusional psychosis, Gauron doesn't seem at all changed by his experiences with it, suggesting he's already that crazy. Add in his intentionally brutal execution and gruesome display of Sousuke's comrades just to attempt to "wake up" the perfect killing machine he remembers Sousuke being, and the psychosis is rather clear. However, his sheer personality while doing this (such as utilizing his infamous "bang" finger pose to trigger his AS's Lambda Driver) have had some people torn between whether he's in Moral Event Horizon territory or an utter badass.
Gates, Gauron's replacement in Amalgam's antagonist role from The Second Raid, is also like this, with a Running Gag being his random killing off of his own men for any number of reasons. Also, his last words before his death? "I could use a haircut" while his mech is being vaporized around him by the Arbalest's Lambda Driver. If not for his apparent combat skills, one'd wonder why Amalgam'd hire someone MORE unstable than Gauron. It's an example of Adaptation Distillation. In the original novel he was a nondescript goon who didn't even had a name, and was known only by his Amalgam codename — Mr. Kalium. The whole psycho thing was invented by the animation team.

Ysengrin in Gunnerkrigg Court is described by as being "on the brink of insanity." He demonstrates this via a Slasher Smile and Minor Injury Overreaction: his own boss has to smash him unconscious against a wall to calm him down.
However, later he reveals a lot more intelligence and depth than his initial appearance would suggest, and has since become somewhat friendly towards Antimony, the main protagonist of the comic, though he still has issues with humanity at large.
Until he really does snap and tries to kill Antimony. And then it's revealed his boss makes a habit of extracting chunks of his memory and eating them.

Protoman from Ruby-Spears's Mega Man. In "Future Shock," it's implied that he doesn't want Wily to completely dominate the world, as the man's draconian policies would severely limit Proto's opportunities to wreak havoc. Outside of that episode, he never hesitates to make things go boom (though he can't bring himself to kill his little brother).

The gleefully psychotic Anemone from Eureka Seven fits this trope perfectly, at least when she's on her medication (without it, not so much). In a way, she could be seen as a female version of Dilandau (well, not including the androgynous nature).

The Night Manager: Affably Evil Big Bad Richard Roper employs a bodyguard/enforcer/torturer named Frisky. Although Roper mostly keeps him on the leash, Frisky makes it very clear, first in words and later by actions, that he has no qualms about the torturer part of his job, and probably enjoys it.

Mr. Gristle from The Boxtrolls. Unlike Snatcher's other henchmen, Mr. Trout and Mr. Pickles, who are philosophical and introspective and completely believe their boss's claims that the boxtrolls are objectively evil, Mr. Gristle is just a dumb, bloodthirsty thug who works as a boxtroll exterminator for fun. Unsurprisingly, of the three, he's the only one of Snatcher's henchmen who doesn't pull a Heel–Face Turn.

Batman:
Batman (1989): Jack Napier is this before his transformation into The Joker, as he's a mob enforcer with dreams of being a mob boss, but Lt. Eckhardt points out that his Ax-Crazy tendencies make it extremely unlikely for his to succeed Grissom in running Gotham.
The Dark Knight Trilogy:
Batman Begins: Dr. Jonathan Crane, the Scarecrow, is presented as a terror-loving maniac who enjoys too much of his illegal jobs.
The Dark Knight: The Mob bosses think The Joker is a Psycho for Hire when they set him after Batman, but he's really just using them as part of his crazy scheme to "watch the world burn."
The Dark Knight Rises: Bane is hired by Wayne's rival John Daggett to protect his interests in Africa and then to hit the Gotham Stock exchange, falsifying some transactions and leaving Wayne penniless. It quickly becomes apparent that Bane has his own game, however, earning Daggett's trust to use his money and construction crews in order to take Gotham hostage.

Star Trek:
Star Trek: Voyager: In the episode "Living Witness", the entire Voyager crew are portrayed like this in a falsified historical representation on an alien planet. Now the "warship Voyager", they were hired by a race called the Vaskans to defeat their enemy the Kyrians. The crew's main mission is still to get back to Earth, but they get so much fun out of killing that they happily torture prisoners to death, shoot unarmed people, and commit genocide.
The Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "The Magnificent Ferengi" gives us Leck, an Eliminator. Eliminators are Ferengi assassins, seen as psychos by the rest of the Alliance because they like the killing more than the latinum they earn from it.

The siblings Jackal and Hyena from Gargoyles are examples. Their sometimes-teammate Wolf is a borderline example, as he takes the same kind of jobs because he enjoys them, but is more of a vicious brute than an outright lunatic. Anton Sevarius is a variation, as a Mad Scientist for hire who isn't a physical threat- but his creations are.

The Pony POV Series: the Dark World version of Fluttercruel definitely qualifies. Of all of the Discorded Mane Six, she's the only one who enjoys carrying out her "father" Discord's orders, because she loves killing people.
The Changeling's Mad Doctor Professor Kabuto is another example. While his job DOES involve performing medical experiments, he really enjoys them and you get the feeling he'd be a Mad Doctor whether it was his actual job or not.

Kefka Palazzo from Final Fantasy VI starts out in the game as a particularly heinous Psycho For Hire, performing such acts as setting a castle filled with inhabitants on fire simply as an act of persuasion, to single handedly causing the genocide of a kingdom (including his own men), simply for the sake of amusement. Eventually, through betrayals and an Earth-Shattering Kaboom, he evolved into an even more heinous Big Bad, vaporizing entire cities with his Wave Motion Gun and attempting to annihilate everything because he thought that it was pointless to let it exist anyway.

Reservoir Dogs: Mr. Blonde is described as having gone berserk during the robbery, and the other robbers take him to task for being a "psychopath" instead of a "professional." The "ear" scene is one of the most sadistically twisted scenes in film history. He even managed to disturb his own actor, thanks to an ad-lib by his victim. Ultimately deconstructed, as the fact that Blonde is completely Ax-Crazy leads to far too many problems for his employers than they can handle, and his associates would never have done a job with him if they knew, because someone who enjoys what he does that much is just inherently unpredictable.

Gundam:
Yazan Gable of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is an amoral, violent soldier whose only stated reasons for joining the Titans were: 1) His skill at killing, and 2) Having the privilege to murder AEUG supporters. He's very good at it (though surprisingly rational for someone with that sort of motivation).
Ali Al-Saachez of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 comes off as a fusion of Yazan and the above-mentioned Gauron. An Axe-Crazy psychopath who freely admits that he enjoys killing for the fun of it, Ali has started wars, armed Child Soldiers, and toppled entire governments for money and kicks, all while salivating about how he's the worst kind of person there is.
Decil Galette of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE is what Yazan and Ali would look like if they were Enfante Terribles. A gleefully Axe-Crazy Cheerful Child, Decil views war as one giant game, and all the soldiers under his command as playthings. This attitude does not improve upon his reaching adulthood, and he now resembles his two inspirations more than ever.
Fuala Griffon is rendered this after her ... exile in space, since she loses her military ranking and fights because she can.

Rocky and his cousin Calvin from Lackadaisy. While they don't seem to be sadistic, they are definitely psychos: One is a perpetually-grinning manchild and the other started Laughing Mad after his first kill before going on to get a few more.
And for the competition, we have the Savoy Siblings and Mordecai. Mordecai especially, although he would would probably challenge that assertion, being a Consummate Professional instead of a gleeful sadist.

Darker Than Black:
Wei is sadistic and violent even by Contractor standards, which is saying something. But then, his power is to teleport chunks out of anything he's gotten blood on, so you shouldn't exactly expect him to be a nice guy.
Wei's a saint compared to Ilya Sokolov, a Contractor introduced in episode 7 of the second season. Ilya was a Serial Killer prior to getting his powers, which makes him a very competent tracker and killer, although his boss is troubled by having to employ such a nut. Interestingly, Ilya is almost Good Powers, Bad People, as his power is to put people into a peaceful sleep/killing painlessly, but he's still a skin-crawlingly creepy psycho.

Sheik is Zelda's Enemy Within. She likes nothing more than to make her enemies hurt and watch them bleed out. Super Smash Bros. tournaments don't allow people to die, though they still feel pain during the fight, so Sheik uses this to her advantage. She can inflict as much damage as she likes wih no fatalities, and it's all allowed in the tournament.
Sheik considers Samus her mutual because they're both so similar. Samus has No Social Skills and knows nothing besides violence. She takes pride in hurting others and mocks her fallen opponents. The difference is that Samus has some level of a conscience and is shown battling her confusing emotions.

Cyberpunk (and occasionally ported over to Shadowrun) has the Cyberpsycho Squads, which are a sort of paramilitary super-SWAT team used to detain (or eliminate) criminals who are modded to the gills with cybernetic implants and have developed 'Cyber-psychosis'. The catch is that Cyberpsycho Squads are basically made up of 'rehabilitated' cyberpsychos themselves; they aren't so much 'given orders' as pointed in a general direction and turned loose. The Cyberpsycho Squad is scary as hell, and for good reason: as a mechanic, they exist basically as GM Fiat for punishing players for going wildly out of control.

Professional Wrestling example: Jake "The Snake" Roberts after his Face–Heel Turn in the early '90s.
The Undertaker, a Ghoul whole steals souls and buries people alive, was considered the GOOD guy in all his encounters with Jake the Snake.

In Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, the ante is upped by adding a New and Improved line of droids called HK-50s. They may seem harmless at first, until you learn that every last one of them is out to kill you. "But anonymous contributor," you might ask, "how does that make them psychotic? Everything is out to get you in KotOR" That may be true, but recall this line: "[Mocking query]: Coortaaaa... Coorta, are you dead yet?"

In The Elder Scrolls series, the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal organization of assassins whose membership mostly takes a sadistic glee in killing and who practice a Religion of Evil. They accept anyone willing to kill on command and who has shown at least some skill in doing so. This eclectic mix of talented killers still tends to be very effective at what they do, right up to having assassinated the Emperor of Tamriel. They're joinable in Daggerfall, Oblivion, and Skyrim, and their questlines provide many opportunities for the Player Character to be one of these as well.

A Song of Ice and Fire
Many warriors, especially those employed by Tywin Lannister. Specifically there's the Clegane brothers. The elder brother, Gregor, "The Mountain That Rides," is a hulking horror, driven into a perpetual rage by migraines and painkillers, and spends the vast majority of his time killing and raping his way across the kingdom. The soldiers he surrounds himself with—the Mountain's Men, Raff the Sweetling, Chiswyck and the Tickler—are of a similar disposition, becoming soldiers so they can loot, kill and rape to their heart's content. Relatively more sympathetic is Sandor Clegane, a brutal thug with some Wangst issues, who insists that all knights are psychos for hire by default, but like to pretend otherwise. He sums this trope up nicely with, "Killing is the sweetest thing there is." Though Sandor actually does go through some character development into a slightly better person.
The Brave Companions are an entire sellsword company comprised of these. Initially they work for Tywin Lannister before defecting to Roose Bolton for a better offer. They're initially led by Vargo Hoat, who earned his reputation as "the Crippler" by chopping off captives' hands and feet for his own amusement. The rest of the band consists of a Monster Clown, serial rapists and child killers. It's telling that the most "sympathetic" member of their group is a Pedophile Priest who rapes and murders boys, but at least feels remorse over it. After Hoat's death, a faction led by Rorge, one of most Ax-Crazy individuals in the series, goes on a senseless crusade of raping, pillaging and burning as a band of outlaws.
House Bolton starts out as the Stark family's own Psycho for Hire bannermen, which is somewhat interesting as the Starks are generally good guys and the Boltons are now considered the Token Evil Teammate of the North, due to their fond family history of flaying their enemies alive. Unfortunately for the Starks,the Boltons are The Starscream and betray them at the Red Wedding, and now Roose Bolton is Warden of the North.

The World Government in One Piece has these guys comin' out the wazoo.
For starters, most high level Marines aren't generally very nice people.
They employ seven pirates as privateers, the Seven Warlords of the Sea, and let them do whatever they want without so much as keeping tabs on them (one of them tried to amass a zombie army and take over the world, another pulled an Evil Plan to overthrow a country and revive a Forgotten Super Weapon, and the newest one has amassed a massive civilian body count pursuing a dumb vendetta that doesn't help them in the least), and the most likely worst of them is a sadistic psychopath who abandons slave trade because he thinks it's become passe.
Among the last one's worst underlings is one of the main antagonists in the Punk Hazard arc; his scheme is basically nukes for sale. It goes without saying that he's in it For the Evulz; his Slasher Smile is more than enough to give that much away.
Then there's the Cipher Pol No. 9 assassin squad, who all more or less qualify, but are led by one Rob Lucci, who is just out of his mind and states being able to kill is his reason for being there.

Wanted has a particularly nasty case of this in a man named Max Petridge, whose signature assassination technique is to break into his target's home and tie them down to a chair. The target's loved ones are Forced to Watch while he burns the victim alive. Afterwards, he brands his initials onto the back of the family member's necks so that they will never forget what he did to them.

Burke from Blow Out is hired by a conspiracy to stop a governor from running for president. He accomplishes this by shooting out the tire on his car, causing it to crash, killing him and nearly killing the call girl he was with. Then, to eliminate the witness and throw off suspicion for the reasons behind her death, he poses as a serial killer and starts murdering women that look like her. The kicker is that Burke wasn't hired to do any of this. He was just supposed to blackmail the candidate with pictures of himself and the call girl, not kill him, and even after the conspiracy fires him for his actions, he still goes through with his serial killer plan. Though Burke tries to maintain an affect of a professional just trying to accomplish a job, it's clear he's only using that as an excuse to act on his deranged desires.

Bullseye from Daredevil. In an appearance in Daniel Way's Deadpool comic, he even mentions he rarely spends the money he makes from his hit jobs. He is actually extremely rich by this point, but rather than use it, he continues to be a hit man because he likes it.
While his Improbable Aiming Skills don't seem to carry over to the Marvel MAX version, his insanity does.
Also, the comic's Big Bad, Kingpin, will sometimes use a Psycho For Hire to make a mob hit look like a random killing. Once, it worked — but another time, the Psycho For Hire got carried away, and the whole thing was blown.
The Kingpin also once hired two psychopaths at once to draw out Daredevil and hopefully kill him: Nuke, a Super Soldier driven insane from years of harsh experiments and being pumped full of drugs, and a killer in a Daredevil costume. Nuke was to drop into Manhattan and just start firing his huge gun Betsy, and the other one was supposed to kill Matt Murdock's friends while dressed as Daredevil, framing him for the crime.

Metal Gear Solid, strangely enough, also had a rare protagonist example of this trope, as Liquid Snake mentioned to Solid Snake when atop REX that [Solid Snake] enjoyed all the killing, and mentioned that this was most likely part of the reason he returned to Shadow Moses Island. Meryl also mentioned that Solid Snake also most likely felt alive when people were dying around him based on his answers.

Prometheus from Mega Man ZX will happily murder people for kicks. There's a good reason why his nickname in-series is "The Reaper." He's also one of those psychos who actually has some degree of intelligence, considering he and Pandora knew from the start that the Game of Destiny was a complete (and intentional) farce (Unlike every other villain character in the series except Albert). He even tried to kill Master Albert in front of the hero, in a betrayal on the level of Kefka... Except that one didn't quite work out, since Master Albert happens to be a Magnificent Bastard. Had he succeeded, he and Pandora had full intentions to wipe out and destroy everything for no justifiable reason except revenge against Albert (Destroying the world is kinda going WAY beyond revenge anyway).
It's safe to say Prometheus had plans simply to destroy the other Mega Men and, most likely, Model W as part of his scheme, but he went batshit by his own madness after losing to Grey/Ashe. Before the fight in Advent...

The Black Hearts has Marcus Black portrayed this way. He's an Ax-Crazy alcoholic who once joined the Atlas military for the opportunity to kill people. After being discharged, he became a Professional Killer. Sometimes, he would take extra pay for the chance to torture the targets if that's what the clients wanted. He's not too crazy to be effective at his job, but there's no doubt that he's a violent and bloodthirsty maniac.

Griffen and Hyde from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. We eventually root for Hyde, his love for Mina making him (almost) a Sociopathic Hero, but the fact the government is delighted to have an invisible treacherous rapist on its books is troubling to say the least. You might also count Nemo but at least there's method to his madness.
Nemo actually seems fairly emotionally stable, if incredibly pissed off and bitter, at first. Then, at the end of the first book, he busts out the automatic harpoon gun. Quartermain points out that Hyde is actually better than Nemo, because you can reason with Hyde.
Their french counterparts, Les Hommes Mysterioux, are this almost to a man, consisting almost entirerly of characters from French pulp fiction such as The Nyctalope, Zenith The Albino, and Fantomas. The only mildly heroic member of this group is Gentleman Thief Arsin Lupene.

Game of Thrones:
The leader of the alchemists, shown giggling behind Tyrion, Joffrey, and the Hound's shocked and horrified reactions at the explosion of wildfire at the open of the Blackwater.
Tywin Lannister is the Mountain's "employer" and unleashes him on the peasantry of those whom he feels have acted against Lannister interests.
Rorge and Biter join the Lannister army... with the likes of the Mountain and Polliver they fit right in. Polliver makes it very clear that his loyalties to the Lannisters and the King are only maintained because they allow him carte blanche to murder, torture, rape and thieve his way across Westeros.

Remo Williams from The Destroyer, while taking missions from the government, usually kills his enemies by goring their faces until it has the consistency of spaghetti in smashed jello and constantly rips arms and legs off. Unusually his motives are patriotic and he regularly has doubts about his 'profession'. His mentor also isn't quite pleasant.

Invader Zim prefers Humongous Mecha and his Kill Sat instead of killing and maiming directly, but it's hard to ignore the maniacal glee with which he steals organs or reduces cities to rubble.
Even going on a rampage on his own planet just for the heck of it.

Disaster: Day of Crisis... Evans. Wait, what? This guy seems cool and collected at first, but he rather enjoys fighting Ray, and eventually shows his true side as a man who gets a huge thrill out of the natural disasters that are occurring. The game itself notes that he is a mixture of a cool head and madness. Though, there is the literal psycho for hire, if only I could remember his name...

Spawn: Jessica Priest is an even darker assassin than Al Simmons (aka Spawn). She seems to be in it mainly for the joy of hurting people, as Simmons balks at how she always leaves a huge bodycount of innocent bystanders on her missions. Later, she sadistically burns Simmons to death on their boss Jason Wynn's orders.

Chris Flannerly of Underbelly was certifiably off his rocker. He aims to be the biggest killer in Australia. He takes credit for the killing of horse race robber Ray Chuck before earning his reputation by going on a killing spree for the highest bidder. He eventually takes out contracts for racing identity George Freeman, before it is realised the hitman is too dangerous to live. Experts say the real life Flannerly was either accurately portrayed or a lot worse.
'The Runner' and 'The Driver' (their names could not be given due to the concurrent court case), whose claim to fame was to kill Jason Moran in front of their kids, would also qualify. Specifically when the Runner thinks his wife is having an affair he first tracks down who he thinks she is with, only for the teenager to not only be taken into protection by the police but is the wrong man, after trashing his house he beats and rapes his wife.

Leon "Bats" Jefferson in Baby Driver is easily the most violent and unstable of Doc's heist crew members (that is until Buddy shows his true colors), something he actually revels in. He's hostile and abrasive towards pretty much everyone he meets and seems psychotically addicted to violent robberies, going out of his way to kill people for shaky reasons (such as not wanting to pay for gum at a convenience store). As he puts it, while his fellow crooks rob to support a drug habit, "he does drugs to support a robbery habit."

Dark Eldar in Warhammer 40,000 are a Planet of Hats of sadistic sociopaths. Creators of Slaanesh who are of a martial bent also fall squarely into this trope (and usually supplement it with playing the Mad Artist in their spare time as well) because the only missing ingredient for their eternal youth is entertainment.
The Dark Eldar also sometimes can actually be up for hire. They kill/enslave/unspeakable act your enemy, get paid, then horrify you.
All Chaos Space Marines actually. In every edition they only get crazier. Ciaphas Cain (HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!) lampshades it on being informed that a Chaos army is believed to have CSMs as advisors, since he can't imagine them giving any advice other than "kill them all".
The barbaric Orks occasionally act as mercenaries for other races, particularly clanless Freebooter bands or Orks of the culturally contaminated (they wear uniforms and use camouflage!) Blood Axe Clan. This is generally a dumb move on the part of their employers, as the Orks prefer to be paid in weaponry that they will inevitably end up using against them.
Kroot kindreds, when they're not fighting for the Tau Empire, roam the galaxy looking for mercenary work. Though not technically sociopaths, their penchant for eating enemy dead as they seek evolutionary upgrades can strain relations amongst their comrades.
The Kroot are actually a subversion in that they are one of the least evil races in the Galaxy.

Lockdown, a Decepticon-aligned bounty hunter from Transformers Animated. He claims to be in it for money and upgrades, but it's plain to see that his true pleasure comes from hunting down and brutally disassembling helpless robots. So much so that he often kept pieces of them as "trophies" which is his favorite part of the job. In fact, his motto is, "Run all you want; it'll make the chase more fun." Ratchet's encounter with him during the Great War was the cause for most of Ratchet's later emotional troubles.

Everyone in Team Fortress 2. In a game chock full of mercenaries with "interesting" personalities, we start with the Scout, an aggressive twerp who badmouths everyone he comes across and enjoys beating up others with his bat. The Soldier is a cross of a Drill Sergeant Nasty and Cloud Cuckoolander with a bazooka. The Heavy cheerfully laughs as he mows people down and converses with his miniguns and things he pulls out of a lunchbox. The Engineer gets a little too jolly when his machines kill people. The Demoman is a Scottish drunkard with a propensity for blowing things up. The Sniper thinks he's a utter professional but he enjoys his work and spits out insults far too much for that. The Medic sees healing as unrewarding in comparison to harming others, and is morbidly fascinated with human suffering. Finally, the Spy is an actual professional who nonetheless mocks his victims with a jaunty cackle. The only person on the team who isn't evil is the Pyro, a pyromaniac who legitimately doesn't know he's killing anyone, though this doesn't make him any less enthusiastic about getting out there into a place that he does know harms him to spread that fire around.
Of course, the casual attitude towards killing is more reasonable when you remember everyone respawns. However, some classes such as Soldier however are known to have killed people besides the mercenaries, who wouldn't respawn.
Saxton Hale, the local Arms Dealer, exploits this clientele. According to him, the world's best mercenaries (not the main characters) are so insane that they don't care about money at all—which is why he sells his best weapons for obscene amounts of money.

Judge Dredd: Judge Death was originally one of these when he signed up for his Alternate Universe's equivalent of the Judges so he could make a living out of killing people. In fact, this extends to the rest of the Judge force in his dimension: their recruitments posters actually advertised "Kill anyone you like (within reason)" as a bonus for joining. This is eventually subverted when he makes himself Chief Judge by killing his predecessor, as he considers life in general to be a crime and is thus obsessive in exterminating all of it.

Although all of the characters are assassins in No More Heroes, most of them seem to be SORT OF stable... except for Destroyman, who cosplays as a superhero when he kills people, and Bad Girl is, as Travis describes, "not an assassin," but "a perverted killing maniac."
Travis himself counts, too, as he sees his murders not as a job, but a HOBBY. As if being an Otaku wasn't expensive enough!

Aladdin: Though Razoul is genuinely loyal to the Sultan and Princess Jasmine, there are numerous hints that he enjoys violence and killing. In the first movie alone, he's gunning for Aladdin simply because the latter stole a loaf of bread, and declaring that he'll take Aladdin's hands for a trophy; later, he eagerly and readily attempts to drown Aladdin/Prince Ali in the ocean when Jafar orders him to. In Aladdin: The Return of Jafar, when Jafar's Evil Plan leads him to believe that Aladdin murdered the Sultan, he's so eager to see Aladdin dead that he personally plays the role of the executioner.

Yuber from the first three Suikoden games is a classic example of the summoned and controlled type of psycho.
Luca Blight from Suikoden II fits the standard archetype, but does his work strictly pro bono and is, in fact, the Big Bad. He is widely regarded as one of the most evil and sadistic villains in video game history. This scene makes this trait abundantly clear.
Childerich from Suikoden V is also an example, which has garnered criticism to his character because of his resemblance to Luca, right down to using (as a shout out) his infamous "Die pigs!!" line when killing people. One critic even described him as "Diet-Luca."
Or even as "Luca Light." Ohohohohohohohoh...

Frank Nitti as portrayed in The Untouchables. He's the main enforcer and hitman of Al Capone—who himself is portrayed as Ax-Crazy—and carries out all of his boss's dirty deeds with sadistic relish. His Establishing Character Moment has him bombing a restaurant with a little girl inside, and he takes far too much joy in threatening to kill Elliot Ness's family as well as rubbing in the death of Malone who he claimed, "died screaming like a stuck, Irish pig."

He is prevented from killing the big bad by mental tampering but since it's too specific he can order his newly released pals to do it, which he does not because the Big Bad says he's a psycho but because the big bad is "an evil Mr. Rogers."..

Megatron tries to put a leash on Overlord, but in doing so, Overlord chafes and abandons the cause. He's his own bot now, he doesn't want to hire himself out to anyone, just kill as many people as possible in all the painful ways he can come up with. Overlord is also obsessed with fighting Megatron — he had a catatonic breakdown when he heard Megatron was dead, and immediately recovered when he found out this wasn't the case.

Otherland: Johnny "Dread" Wulgaru is a diagnosed sociopath with a string of vicious murders to his name. He is plucked out of the justice system by the Big Bad, Felix Jongleur, and trained as an assassin/attack dog, not least because of his technopath psychic power. Jongleur controls him via the threat of pain, but Dread proves too canny for his master and eventually discovers how to use his powers to usurp control of Jongleur's Otherland computer network, promoting himself to Big Bad in the process.

The Bridge has several in Bagan's forces. According to Word of God, this was entirely intentional on Bagan's part, as he wanted minions that he could easily get to do what he wants, and what better way than ones who would do it anyway?:
Gaira is a cannibalistic psychopath who actively targets humans to eat (despite being a mutated human himself). Bagan can only offer him meals out of the carnage they intend to cause.
Hedorah is primarily lured into service by the opportunity to cause destruction, which it also feeds on.
Grand King Ghidorah destroys planets For the Evulz and thus joined due to the offer of causing mass destruction. He takes it a step further by outright admitting he was never under mind control by the various alien races he's been under the 'control' of: he merely allowed them to think he was because it benefited him.

Firefly:
Jubal Early from the episode "Objects in Space". At first he just seems like a somewhat quirky and oddly philosophical Bounty Hunter, but that goes out the window when he casually threatens to rape Kaylee as an intimidation tactic. A nut job who used to torture animals as a child and terrified his own mother, he tries to insist that hurting people is simply a necessary part of the job. However, as mentioned in the page quote, River's psychoanalysis reveals Early became a bounty hunter expressly so he could dominate and hurt people for a living.
Inverted in "The Train Job:" There the psycho (Niska) hires them! Niska's first Dragon, Crow, is a straight example, a Knife Nut who shares his boss's love of hurting people. He forgoes Mal's offer of simply returning the money Niska paid them after they failed their job and opts to threaten him instead by saying he'll return and "the last thing [Mal] will ever see is [his] blade." Mal's response is a small, "Darn," before kicking him into the ship's turbine. The next henchmen he makes the same offer to is much more agreeable.
Jayne has an extremely dark and cynical view of the world, a score of zero in the morality department, and very inconsistent loyalties. Mal hired Jayne by offering more than his previous crew, who he promptly betrayed and shot. Textbook Token Evil Teammate.

The Glanton Gang from Blood Meridian, a mercenary gang who've been hired by the Texan state to collect Apache scalps in exchange for bounties. The vast majority of the gang are bloodthirsty psychopaths, and not only are they led by John Joel Glanton, a man who's killed so much he's gone insane, but the group is being corrupted even more by Judge Holden, a man so evil that it's implied he might not even be human. Unsurprisingly, the group goes rogue and begins to rape, loot and kill everything in their path, whether Native Americans, Mexican civilians, or Mexican and American soldiers.

Udo Jin-e (Kurogasa) from Rurouni Kenshin is an almost stereotypical example. He has everything from a Slasher Smile to even Glowing Eyes of Doom. In the never-animated Jinchu arc, Enishi's Six Comrades are also a squad of these.
Otowa and Gein seem to be the only ones in the group that fits the trope. Enishi, Mumyoi, and Kujirinami were motivated mostly by Revenge, while Banjin falls more under the Blood Knight category. A better example would be Heishin's personal fighting squad, the Sushin/Shishin.
Makoto Shishio was probably one of these, back when he was working for the Shishi

Star Trek: Voyager: In the episode "Living Witness", the entire Voyager crew are portrayed like this in a falsified historical representation on an alien planet. Now the "warship Voyager", they were hired by a race called the Vaskans to defeat their enemy the Kyrians. The crew's main mission is still to get back to Earth, but they get so much fun out of killing that they happily torture prisoners to death, shoot unarmed people, and commit genocide.

Karasuba from Sekirei is the only consistent member during all three incarnations of the Discipline Squad, because she genuinely LOVES killing. That she gets the perks of being MBI's top enforcer is only icing on the very bloody cake. She combines this with the Blood Knight, since the stronger the opponent she faces, the more fun she'll have killing them. While Minaka is the more traditional, scheming Big Bad that controls the Sekirei Plan......she could be considered the true villain of the series, having been established as the Final Boss from the beginning. Her ultimate goal is to use the power gained from victory to destroy the world.

Gilroy's subtitle in Burn Notice is "Freelance Psychopath."
Michael's former mentor "Dead Larry" is a pretty good example of the trope, too. He doesn't have to kill that many people to do his job, but he enjoys it so much.
Simon is a terrorist for hire who committed the various acts that Michael is accused of (resulting in his burn notice) while in the employ of Management and whoever he works for.

Nathan Wallace from Repo! The Genetic Opera works as a Repo Man, a legal assassin hired by Gene Co to repossess organs with surgical precision from people who are delinquent in their payments. He's also a tragic example of this trope, since he was manipulated into becoming a Repo Man by Gene Co's founder after the latter murdered Nathan's wife. While Nathan can become a sadistic, psychopathic killer with the flick of a scalpel, the Repo Man persona almost seems like a split-personality, and off the clock he's a loving father who's consumed by guilt and self-loathing.

Hellsing has Jan Valentine; being a minor villain didn't seem to matter for him at all as his part of attacking the Hellsing manor was mostly for the fun of it. He threatens to rape, kill, then rape Integra again, massacres everything in front of him, and dies flipping off the cast. While betraying his bosses. Not even during his fiery self-destruction does he stop laughing maniacally.
Alucard himself qualifies big-time - he's a vampire, by his own admission worse than what he fights, a nightmarish sadist who loves to terrify and then rip his enemies apart (frequently eating them) with totally overwhelming power, and he's got an impressive Evil Laugh of his own. But he's an unusual example in that he works for the good guys, and that he is unambiguously, absolutely loyal to his boss, Integra. Which just means he massacres threats to her with even greater glee.

In the Daniel Faust series, Meadow Brand is a serial killer who works as an assassin so she can have fun and get paid at the same time. She's not averse to the occasional random victim if she's feeling bored or irritated, though... Justine and Juliette, Nicky Agnelli's enforcers, also qualify. When a half-demon hit team takes their aliases from a pair of novels by the Marquis de Sade, you know they're bad news.

Justified has had a few. There's Billy Mac, an ex-boxer who likes taking the chance to beat up black people. There's Fletcher Nix, a Dixie mafia hitman who forces his victims to play a sadistic game before he kills them. There's the late Tommy Bucks, who put dynamite in a man's mouth to prove a point. And of course there's Wynn Duffy, Dixie Mafia middleman and certifiable psychopath who is purported to have once sewn a man's face to a soccer ball, though Character Development sets in after he spends a season or two working with some particularly Ax-Crazy individuals that considerably mellows him out, to the point he ends up being considered the Dixie Mafia's Voice of Reason. Apparently, he realized being a psychopath wasn't a very lucrative job position (in fact, mellowing out resulted in him stepping up in the criminal world).

Rampage from Transformers: Beast Wars is massive, insanely powerful, and delights in tormenting his victims. He's also more or less immortal, and the Megatron of that series gained control over him by cutting out a piece of Rampage's spark (in a nutshell, the soul of a Transformer) while he was unconscious and encasing it in a "squeeze box" that could cause Rampage excruciating pain if he disobeyed.
Inferno, a brain/memory-damaged Predacon with the body and mind of a red ant who considered Megatron his Queen and would do anything for "The Colony". He was near impervious to pain, had no sense of self-preservation, and had a passionate love for setting people on fire. Megatron was constantly annoyed by his clear insanity but kept him around because, well, he was just so damned good at setting people on fire.
Lockdown, a Decepticon-aligned bounty hunter from Transformers Animated. He claims to be in it for money and upgrades, but it's plain to see that his true pleasure comes from hunting down and brutally disassembling helpless robots. So much so that he often kept pieces of them as "trophies" which is his favorite part of the job. In fact, his motto is, "Run all you want; it'll make the chase more fun." Ratchet's encounter with him during the Great War was the cause for most of Ratchet's later emotional troubles.
Extended to even further depths after it is revealed that he used to be a student of Prowl's mentor, Yoketron. And not only that, but he was the one who betrayed and killed him.
Transformers: Prime brings us Airachnid. In a nutshell, mix together Lockdown, Rampage, and Tarantulas and put them into the body of a spider-helicopter fembot.
