They fight for the good guys. They might even believe in the cause (to a point). But they are a hero only in name.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })They are antiheroes who have a fundamental Lack of Empathy, a sociopathic disregard for their enemies' lives, and possibly a lack of concern for even the people they save. They may be motivated by boredom, a raw thirst for combat, or by some sort of carrot-and-stick arrangement — a chip in the head, an attachment to some person or thing that requires them to do good, or a pragmatic code that prevents their truly inhuman nature from landing them in jail or in a shallow grave.
They may solve their problems in much the same way that a villain would — ruthlessly manipulating and killing their way to their goal. They may routinely torture, murder, and/or commit evil acts nearly as bad as the Big Bad. They'll do whatever it takes to win. The people they fight beside are shocked with their behavior, but try to tell themselves, "At least they're on our side." Even that may not be true in the end, where it may be suggested that this "hero" has become as evil as the monsters they vanquished. And God help you if they decide to turn against you...
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Common rationalizations either by the hero himself or on the hero's behalf include Asshole Victim, Utopia Justifies the Means, It's All About Me, or It's What I Do.
Compare Heroic Comedic Sociopath, for when this kind of behavior is Played for Laughs, and Token Evil Teammate, which they will be if they're a team player. They also tend to stay in Nominal Hero or Villain Protagonist territory. If a character is treated as an Ideal Hero despite being this, then this has been combined with a Designated Hero.
This trope can overlap with the Sociopathic Soldier although there are just as many outright villainous examples, especially if the setting is war or a chaotic milieu. See also Moral Sociopathy.
Truth in Television: sociopathic heroes do exist in Real Life. More detail is not necessary.

The quote supplier, the title character from Sherlock, admits he is this. He does have some limited feeling for the pain and suffering of others, but tries to hide it, believing himself more effective if he doesn't care at all.

Shadow Stalker of Worm
She was forced to join the Wards after pinning a man to a wall with her crossbow, nearly killing him.
Despite her parole limiting her to non-lethal tranquilizers she often went on patrol with actual bolts and tried to kill both Grue and Skitter.
Even with that aside she was needlessly violent when taking down perps, abusive of her fellow Wards, and generally rebellious.
In her personal life, she participated significantly in a bullying campaign against Taylor Hebert that (among other things) involved locking the latter into her own locker, along with with a mass of rotting used feminine products.
And finally, even when she was out as a hero, she had a habit of not interfering in muggings unless and until the victim showed signs of fighting back.

Luisa Bora in Mercury Heat is explicitly a high-functioning sociopath who is sociopathic enough not to have any problems with torturing and killing people, but still retains enough morality not to want to do it to the innocent. This is why she's on Mercury, as she grew up desperately wanting to be a cop, but her psych profile meant that she had no chance of joining a police force in the more regulated society of Earth.

Mikoshiba Ryouma of Wortenia Senki is so into this that he bumps up against Villain Protagonist. He only cares about his own well being, and the twin sister "War slave" sisters he owns, Lara and Sara. He cares not one whit about collateral damage, and will do anything and everything he needs to in order to win a fight, except for sacrificing either one or both of Lara and Sara, even going so far as to buy children between 10 and 14 years old, by the thousands, purely to make into soldiers for his army, and cares not a whit about collateral damage. He is considered extremely benevolent by comparison because the world he was dragged to is that much worse!

60% of what makes Deponia's main protagonist Rufus unlikable is his jerkass personality. 40% is the fact that he solves half of his problems by blowing stuff up. Or setting up a domino-effect. Or even killing people.

Dr. Niles "Chief" Caulder, founder of the Doom Patrol, is a genuinely altruistic man who wants to make the world a better place and help people. He's also a borderline sociopath who will do anything, no matter how ethically questionable, to accomplish his goals. This includes purposefully causing the accidents that gave the team their powers and ruined their lives, so he could craft them into superheroes.

Dexter Morgan, in the TV show Dexter, is a prime example. A Serial Killer (albeit of other killers) who has to emulate emotions to go unnoticed by others, and is only motivated by his urge to kill. He is actually diagnosed as a psychopath by a psychologist who knows his true nature late in the show.

Let's face it, the heroes of MANY fairy tales behave this way, killing, lying and stealing their way to fame and fortune, often with no better excuse than "that guy deserved it." Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk), for example, commits multiple burglaries and then murders the person coming to reclaim their stolen property. The musical Into the Woods deconstructs this story, among many others.

Mikazuki of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans is a Child Soldier who has no qualm on killing, he does not have the concept of mercy when it comes to disposing enemies when they're still speaking, often gives vulgar nicknames to enemies who managed to survive his encounters.

Kaine Parker, Spider-Man's self-proclaimed evil clone. While he actually was an evil clone, an assassin and a classic '90s Anti-Hero for a while, he eventually grew out of it, becoming a reluctant hero, protecting the innocent (and often cussing them out for being so stupid, since he's not exactly Mr Nice Guy). However, he still has absolutely no compunction of killing or torturing if he deems it necessary - and that's before he gets the ability to transform into a borderline Eldritch Abomination.

Fire Emblem:
Karel fits this trope in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, where he was a massive Blood Knight known as the Sword Demon who eventually rediscovers a part of his humanity through his supports. In Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade, his Older and Wiser self is the famed Saint of Swords or Sword Saint, and acts much calmer.
Similarly, Henry from Fire Emblem Awakening joins Chrom's Badass Crew solely to get to fight against a more powerful army. From then on he gets massive kicks out of tearing through enemy lines and using Gallows Humor in many of his interactions with others.

To an extent, The Bride from Kill Bill. When she's under a truth serum from Bill, she admits that she genuinely enjoys killing and maiming people. In fact, what stops her from being a downright Villain Protagonist "in the present" (she was after all a contract killer for most of her life so she used to be killing people for money) is the relative Heel–Face Turn she went through upon finding out she was pregnant, and her very deserved revenge.

The Dragon Ball franchise has quite a few of these:
We have Piccolo during the Saiyan saga. The original reason he decides to help against Vegeta and Nappa is because if they destroy the Earth, he won't be able to rule it. However, at the end of said arc, Piccolo pulls a full Heel–Face Turn and sacrifices himself for Gohan.
During the Namek saga, Vegeta becomes a Token Evil Teammate for Krillin, Gohan, Bulma, Piccolo and Goku, as he's only helping them so he can gain immortality. However, when that's thrown out the window, he fights to avenge his race. Even after the Namek arc, he's still a bit of a sociopath due to his Saiyan tendencies, and it's not until he pulls a Heroic Sacrifice against Buu that he drops the "sociopath" part.
In Dragon Ball Super, during the Universal Survival arc, we have Frieza, to the extreme. He's only working with the Universe 7 team, because Goku promised Frieza another chance at life. Frieza's first question when asked for this was "Can I kill them?" and when he was denied that (due to Tournament rules), he settled for Cold-Blooded Torture.
Also during the Universal Survival arc, we have Jiren of Universe 11. Universe 11's team as a whole is a Super Team, set on the ideals of justice. Jiren, however seems to be Universe 11's Token Evil Teammate. He shows no mercy towards the Universe 7 team, he mocks Android 17 for his Heroic Sacrifice, and by extension, mocks Goku and Vegeta for relying on said sacrifice. He doesn't care about his Pride Trooper compatriots and openly mocks their leader once he gets knocked out. And he even tries kill all of Goku's friends and family just to prove that he doesn't need friends for power, though he ends up growing out of this during the climax of the arc. However, this is only consistent in the anime, whereas the manga and Xenoverse tend to bring him under Adaptational Nice Guy.

Karma of Assassination Classroom. He's a kid who clearly has an inclination towards violence and mischief, and appears to be nearly Ax-Crazy with the way he gets shits and giggles out of torturing and making others miserable through cruel and unusual methods.

The Office of Naval Intelligence (the aforementioned ONI) is basically an entire agency made up of these; apart from green-lighting SPARTAN-II in the first place, they also approved SPARTAN-III (which, despite absolutely zero involvement from Halsey, still used children, but as suicide super soldiers; the two Spartans we've seen who actually play this trope straight, Emile-A239 and Jonah, are both IIIs), experimenting on prisoners with the galaxy-destroying Flood virus, sabotaging the one major post-Covenant faction who supports humanity's right to exist (and strengthening the anti-human factions in the process), secretly sacrificing an entire colony to capture a Covenant ship, etc.

The villains of Golden Sun, Saturos and Menardi, just utterly revel in this trope. On one hand they're on a quest to save their village and the entire world by igniting the four Elemental Lighthouses, but on the other hand they are absolute sociopathic dicks. Some of their antics include beating a pair of kids to near death for eavesdropping on them, not caring in the least that they destroyed the protagonist's home townnote They did save the lives of the presumed dead villagers, but only to blackmail Felix into helping them as they needed a Venus Adept kicking a tree into the river they know is actually a cursed (and still conscious) human, beating everyone at Venus Lighthouse to near-deathnote True they were defending themselves from the guards who attacked them, but they also attacked the innocent scholars for the hell of it and it's implied they would have outright killed everyone had Kraden not stopped them, and overall just thoroughly enjoying every bit of it. Saturos has at least some standards, as he maintains an air of Affable Evil and even scolds Menardi for threatening Felix at one point, but Menardi is a complete bastard who's in it For the Evulz.

In The Order of the Stick we have Belkar, an Axe-Crazy halfling that specializes in killing and dealing pain with two daggers. Word of God makes it VERY clear that Belkar is 100% Chaotic Evil. For most of his screen time he fits better into Heroic Comedic Sociopath, though there have definitely been moments where his impulsive bloodlust causes drama and even setbacks for the rest of the team. For example, during Roy's afterlife judgement, it's mentioned that Belkar would normally cause Roy a lot of karma demerits if the team weren't so good at directing Belkar's violence toward the villains. After coming to the conclusion that he needs to fake character development, Belkar has become more cooperative with the rest of the team. In other words, he's gone from being a sociopath to... being a slightly higher-functioning sociopath.

Raiden from the Metal Gear series was a child soldier in Liberia since 1989. He seems to be harmless in Metal Gear Solid 2 but in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has him going back to his sociopathic, more psychopathic persona as a major plot point later on. However Raiden was hell-bent on saving the children from being forced into being killer cyborgs since he wants to prevent them from experiencing the same horrific childhood he had.

In Sons of Anarchy, this applies to pretty much everyone in SAMCRO. Tig is the leading example in the early episodes, but he's overpaced by Happy. While the club watches an IRA member torture a traitor, most are shown to be either stoic or disturbed by the display. Happy is smiling.

Cancer Deathmask in Saint Seiya: Episode.G by virtue of being the same evil sadist as in the original series, only this time he's fully on the heroes' side. Best shown when a Giant-a Physical God bent on exterminating manking for not worshipping him-enters his Temple and is horrified when he sees it's covered by the unresting souls of Deathmask's victims manifesting as wailing faces and calls him out on this, only to get called out on how he is trying to exterminating mankind and added to the collection.

Okonkwo from Things Fall Apart is more sociopathic than hero at times. He executes his adopted son, and gets convicted for murder and arson, the arson being for burning down a church (Which was a stand against colonialism, but still...).

Exalted:
A character with Compassion 1 can be played as this.
Alchemicals with high Clarity are explicitly spelled out as not examples — they're emotionless, not wantonly cruel — but those infected by Gremlin Syndrome may well attempt to continue fighting the good fight even as their condition instils a psychotic desire to destroy and maim.
Infernals who take enough Ebon Dragon Charms can easily become virtue-stripped sociopaths who have to actively resist the urge to flip out and ruin people's happiest memories, but they remain playable and capable of perverse nobility even as they're wrecking lives left, right and centre.

Sgt. Bothari in Vorkosigan Saga is a multiple rapist and murderer, who get sexually excited by killing and when watching a pregnant prisoner be abused by her captors. Knowing this, he depends on the structure of his military service and the guidance of the lord and lady he serves to show him what is right and what is wrong.
To be fair, the only crimes he is known to have committed were while under orders, and all but one were after he had been deliberately driven insane by torture and drugs by his commander. He may have committed others before he placed himself under orders in order to let others make decisions he knew he could not.

Marv from Sin City is the definition of sociopath, in fact on multiple occasions he describes himself as nothing more than a wild animal. On the other hand, Marv tends to over-exaggerate his foibles because no one ever told him otherwise. He is ugly; therefore he is dumb. He has a mental disorder; therefore he is a psychopath. While Marv relishes committing violence against those who deserve it, he has also come to the aid of innocents, such as a homeless man who was nearly immolated by a street punk.

Morrigan of Dragon Age: Origins is one of the Stupid Evil variants: her answer to everything tends to be "Eh, we don't need to help them, let's just kill everyone." This has at least some justification since her only social interaction for most of her life came from her mother, who might have intentionally crippled her emotionally in order to make her easier to eventually possess.
The Warden can be played as such, which actually resonates with their entire order. Depersonalization is one of the reasons why the Wardens are such effective warriors, as we are often reminded the Grey Wardens can and will do whatever it takes to defeat the Darkspawn. Even if it means razing a city to the ground to save the people within.
The Legion of the Dead are also comprised at least partially of this. Exiles, criminals, murderers and even rapists from Orzammar are accepted as members, who hold their own funerals when they join, consider themselves dead, and are willing to spend their last days waging guerrilla warfare and full head-on assaults against the Darkspawn horde.

Finesse from Avengers Academy is specifically a sociopath note She considers that she might be autistic but rejects it because she has no other signs, unable to comprehend other people's emotions or feel any of her own. Over the course of the series she learns to decipher how people feel enough to take responsibility for her actions and has developed camaraderie, if not exactly an emotional bond, with her friends. The final issue shows that she is genuinely upset by her inability to connect with others emotionally.

In Thousand Shinji, Shinji, Asuka and Rei are jerkass anti-heroes. Shinji showed no sympathy towards other people unless or until they became family or friends. Even so, he manipulates eveyone, including those he cares for. Admittedly, he's pretty open about it (Asuka and Rei know that he both uses them and loves them), and he became somewhat more considerate and more compassionate at the end.

Black Lagoon has Roberta, who was once an amoral killing machine but has now dedicated herself to the Lovelace family and goes berserk when her master was assassinated. And Revy laughs and sings when she's gunning people down, and nine times out of ten her first recourse is to put a 9mm round in any given problem, but she's one of the protagonists and is shown to have a few standards.

While the original Vault Hunters of Borderlands toed the line (especially Brick), most of the new Vault Hunters in the sequel qualify big time. Axton is a Glory Hound who committed treason against his superiors and purposefully puts his allies in danger just so he can look like a badass, Salvador has way too much fun slaughtering his way across Pandora, and Zer0 is a Blood Knight assassin who will kill anyone if the price and challenge is right. Even Maya and Gaige, easily the most moral of the new Vault Hunters, are more than willing to viciously taunt their enemies, making Maya a Type 2 antiheroine with hints of Type 3 and Gaige a Type 3.
And then there's Krieg. If it weren't for the Split Personality reigning him in, he'd go from slaughtering bandits and Hyperion personnel to slaughtering everything in sight.
And most side characters count too. Tiny Tina is plainly stated to be a psychopath, Scooter murders all his mother's potential boyfriends, Moxxi runs underground fighting rings of the lethal variety for shits and giggles, and so on.

Alex Mercer from [PROTOTYPE] is a very complex case, but he ends up being well-intentioned in the end, saving New York from destruction. It doesn't prevent him from being an Axe-Crazy Psycho Prototype who savagely kills his enemies, consumes people (though the player can choose whether to eat civilians or not) and has a hard backstory behind him. By the time the second game rolls around he's definitely no longer a hero - but no longer a sociopath, either.

Halo:
The Spartan-IIs are said to have "mild sociopathic tendencies" due to their years of being formed into killing machines, though it's shown throughout the series that the Spartans do care about others, with Jorge-052 at one point even going out of his way to comfort a civilian stranger who just lost her father.
Dr. Halsey, creator of the original Spartan-IIs, has elements of this. She kidnapped children and subjected them to grueling training as well physical augmentations that left many of them crippled or worse. Even the secretive and manipulative AI Assembly, despite approving of her work, though that she might have had an "undiagnosed, undocumented, or deliberately obfuscated chemical imbalance" in her neural system. While she does feel a great deal of guilt about her role in all of this (as does Cortana, an AI clone of her brain), she expresses absolutely none of it in public and remains adamant that it was necessary, even after ONI (the people who approved the entire project in the first place) arrest her to use as a scapegoat.
The Office of Naval Intelligence (the aforementioned ONI) is basically an entire agency made up of these; apart from green-lighting SPARTAN-II in the first place, they also approved SPARTAN-III (which, despite absolutely zero involvement from Halsey, still used children, but as suicide super soldiers; the two Spartans we've seen who actually play this trope straight, Emile-A239 and Jonah, are both IIIs), experimenting on prisoners with the galaxy-destroying Flood virus, sabotaging the one major post-Covenant faction who supports humanity's right to exist (and strengthening the anti-human factions in the process), secretly sacrificing an entire colony to capture a Covenant ship, etc.
James Ackerson, head of SPARTAN-III, is a good individual example of an ONI sociopath; despite a distinguished record both on and off the field (even using his last moments in life to help save Cleveland from a Covenant attack), he's also often prioritizes his personal ambition over the greater good, to the point where he actually tried to get the Master Chief himself killed in a training accident on Reach when the Covenant were already attacking the planet.

Mass Effect 2 has the Bounty Hunter and Punch-Clock Hero mercenary Zaeed. While he doesn't exact always propose Murder Is the Best Solution, he probably wouldn't be against suggestions for it, though he makes clear at a few points that he has standards nonetheless. The same game features Jack, a biotic Tyke Bomb who's been so abused and beaten that at this point the only pleasure she finds any more is in killing. It helps that the men who trained her would torture her any time she showed mercy, and inject her with drugs to get her to associate pleasure with killing.
Depending on how the player chooses, Shepard can also be this trope too, wielding Insane Troll Logic and shooting people on a whim. That's what gives us the YouTube videos Commander Shepard is Such a Jerk and Commander Shepard is Still a Jerk. If you want to believe Shepard is a megalomaniacal paranoid schizophrenic who happens to have a fixation on a threat that, coincidentally, happens to exist, go right ahead.

Getter Robo pilots Ryoma Nagare and Hayato Jin in several continuities. Jin's first appearance in the original manga is as a violent revolutionary punishing would-be deserters by ripping a man's face off. He mellows a bit as he ages, but is still willing to send in his own fiancee as part of a force defusing booby-trapped atomic bombs by trial and error. Ryoma practically lives to fight, though at the same time, he does care about innocents and does his best to make sure none of them gets hurt. At the very least, he has Moral Sociopathy if nothing else.

Peter Pan: Peter spends an awful lot of his time killing off pirates, and often is willing to put his friends in danger simply because it would be interesting or even funny. This is because of the basic nature of his character; being a child forever, he's inherently selfish and often amoral. It is mentioned that during the fights between the Lost Boys and the pirates, if the pirates seem to be at a disadvantage, Peter will join their side to even things out. That's right, he will happily fight and kill his friends just because it's more of a challenge. Evidently, Lost Boys come and go, and Peter doesn't have any real interest in keeping track of them.

The Wayward creed from Hunter: The Reckoning cannot turn off their second sight, so they see the monsters that walk amongst humanity 24/7. They also have no empathy for the masses. Their fight against the supernatural does not care about collateral damage: if a Wayward thinks the most efficient way to kill a vampire that controls a local business is to bomb the building while he's inside (along with all of the innocent employees), then he'll bring it down. The iconic Wayward, God 45, is implied to have stolen a nuclear weapon during the Time of Judgment.

In Dragon Ball Super, during the Universal Survival arc, we have Frieza, to the extreme. He's only working with the Universe 7 team, because Goku promised Frieza another chance at life.

The Elder Scrolls
You can choose to play this way throughout the series. It actually takes effort to avoid becoming one of these by actively choosing not to steal or murder indiscriminately.
From the series' backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind/racist berserker. Believed to have been a Shezarrine, physical incarnations of the spirit of the "dead" creator god Lorkhan (known to the Imperials as "Shezarr"), Pelinal came to St. Alessia to serve as her divine champion in the war against the Ayleids. Pelinal would fly into fits of Unstoppable Rage (mostly directed at the Ayleids) during which he would be stained with their blood and left so much carnage in his wake that Kyne, one of the Divines, would have to send in her rain to cleanse Ayleid forts and village before they could be used by Alessia's forces. Official Imperial dogma would have you only remember his "heroic" traits, glossing over (if mentioning at all) his sociopathy.

While not an actual sociopath (i.e. not suffering from any particular mental illness), he has lived for so long as an immortal on the fringes of human society and keeps himself from forming emotional bonds when he'll inevitably have to leave the person or outlive them, so he finds killing people very easy to do, and does so without remorse multiple times. When Carlos - the captain of the ship taking him from Greece to Romania - betrays him, Glaeken does initially let him live, but unfortunately the guy has Chronic Backstabbing Disorder, forcing Glaeken to kill him not even two sentences later. He also rather cold-bloodedly murders the Romanian soldiers at the border, although being that they're collaborators working with the Nazis it's hardly as if they're undeserving victims. This is toned down in the film.

Severian the Torturer from the Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolfe. His values are so far astern from the reader's sensibilities that he sometimes comes across as shockingly cruel. In some instances, it seems he is ambiguous when describing events that are of great moral relevance to the reader, apparently because he sees no ethical dilemma in them. He shows a mixture of traits, some of which may be sociopathic, others of which may indicate a place on the autism spectrum.
Partly this is due to Severian having been raised as a Torturer from infancy, and partly it is due to his status as a mnemonist. Having studied Abnormal Psychology at Miami University, Wolfe was likely aware of the case history of a real life mnemonist (known as 'S.') who displayed a passive-receptive attitude, and a wealth of thought and imagination contrasting with a surprising lack of intellect. These traits are a significant plot point, with Severian unable to join the dots to see how he is being manipulated, distracting the reader with flights of fancy, and, in true Wolfeian style, leaving the reader to figure out the true story.

This is how Takeshi Kovacs views himself. Several times, he describes the traits needed to qualify for Envoy training as "psychopathic tendencies and a sense of team spirit", at least one of which he had instilled during time in the military. While he has enough of a conscience to Pet the Dog for those who he feels to be the victims, he has no problem with permakilling or torturing anyone who interferes with his goals.

Kain really is a sociopathic hero, in that he was afflicted with some kind of mental illness seconds after he was born, making him megalomaniacal, anti-social (in the psychological sense of the term), and incapable of empathy. However, despite being a Villain Protagonist, he's the only real hope Nosgoth's got.

Zig-zagged in the film adaptation of The Keep. There's a lot of toning down of the character of Glaeken. He still comes off as being an emotionally disconnected and kind of creepy individual, but the only person he directly murders besides the Big Bad is a nameless Nazi soldier, although he does so with surprising ferocity and the guy's only real crime (outside of, y'know, being a Nazi) was he wouldn't stop attempting to grab Glaeken's arm. Seems like a considerably minor offense to deserve being chucked down a gorge. They did film the scene from the book where Glaeken murders Carlos for betraying him, but it was cut (possibly in an effort to avert this very trope).

Warhammer 40,000: Grimdark as it is, this is the norm.
One of the requirements for Space Marine candidates is a near-psychotic willingness to kill, as killing is pretty much what he'll be doing for the rest of his life. There's two important caveats to the "psychotic willingness" part, though: first is that the Space Marines are disciplined soldiers who must treat psychosis as a tool, and secondly they know full well "psychotic" is relative, so they prefer to recruit from planets where death is a normal part of daily life, even at a young age, in order to mitigate the shock.
Inquisitors, particularly the more extreme ones, make Marines look like cuddly puppies. A Space Marine has to be willing to kill a man, should it become necessary. An Inquisitor has to be willing to kill a planet.
And then there's the forces of Chaos, who are actually split into those who want to kill everything, those who want to rape everything, those want want to infect everything with hideous diseases, and those who betray their allies at the worst possible moment. Fortunately for the rest of the galaxy, they hate each other as much as they hate the rest, and thus will cheerfully turn on each other at the worst possible time.

Drakengard:
In the first game, it's clear that Caim is only after The Empire for his own revenge: That they happen to be the ones trying to summon Elder Evils from beyond the Veil to destroy reality itself is incidental to him. He kicks enough dogs during the events of the first game to fill a small cart, butchers his way through several armies (some of which contain Child Soldiers) with a Slasher Smile on his face, and even his human-hating dragon companion finds his shenanigans a bit over-the-top.
Averted in the second game. Not because Caim has had a change of heart, just that the new main character Nowe is on the receiving end of his bad side.

Riddick from The Chronicles of Riddick series. He certainly has nothing against killing when it benefits him, but would rather be left alone and wipe his hands of the entire human race that way. He was even willing to let the entire universe be destroyed simply because it wasn't his fight. Just make sure you mind the children. Lookin' at you, Johns.

The Punisher is the comic book mascot of this trope. He was, by far, the most popular costumed "superhero" that kills his enemies rather than put them in jail. And he's been doing it way before the Dark Age of Comics.

Kullervo from The Kalevala is one of the best examples. His Evil Uncle Untamo kills Kullervo's tribe and failing to kill Kullervo due to their magic raises them badly, leaving Kullervo impulsive, cruel and mentally ill. For example, when his Uncle tells him to look after a baby he tortures and kills the child for no reason. When he avenges the murder of his tribe he apparently kills Untamo's entire tribe. Kullervo ends up Driven to Suicide after finding his family dead.

The Doctor occasionally is this in Doctor Who:
The First Doctor started out as this. He held some meaningful ideals but genuinely did not understand or care about other people's feelings, being happy to openly lie to them and play them against each other to follow his own goals, which were mostly just to be able to do whatever he wanted For Science!. He kidnaps people, gets them into trouble for his own amusement, constantly accuses them of trying to steal from him, and at one point he even tries to murder a person for no reason beyond paranoia, while at the same time using a paper-thin veneer of doddery-old-man in order to make himself look weak and innocent whenever he has to. His granddaughter is something of a Morality Pet but even though she loves him she is obviously terrified of him, often more than the monsters, and weeps openly in fear of repercussions whenever she tries to persuade him to do something for her. He gets some Character Development, though — Ian and Barbara manage to drum some basic manners into him, and although he starts out with No Social Skills and occasionally slips back into treating his companions like dirt (although apologizing for it afterwards), by "The Dalek Invasion of Earth" he's declared himself a defender of the weak and by "The Time Meddler" he chooses to punish someone in a devastating but pointedly non-fatal way.
The most blatant example of the Doctor as this trope was The Seventh Doctor. Several episodes, particularly in his later two seasons, were devoted to him caring only about winning, above all else (this is particularly true in the episode "The Curse of Fenric").
The later regenerations of the Doctor constantly struggle against becoming this. During "The Waters of Mars", the Tenth Doctor ends up going so completely off the deep end, he briefly styles himself as "The Time Lord Victorious" and is willing to break time itself in half to save people, even if they don't want him to.

Child of the Storm and its sequel have it become increasingly obvious that Peter Wisdom a.k.a. Regulus Black, the ruthless Director of MI13, is an example of this trope, being every bit as ruthless as the things and people he opposes, it being made abundantly clear that he's willing to do anything in defence of his country. Multiple characters remark after meeting him that there's something thoroughly unnerving about him. His status as this, though, is cemented when he bluntly states to Thor that the sole reason he's going along with the Avengers plan to send Harry back to Hogwarts as part of his recovery following what the Red Room did to him and his resultant bout of Dark Phoenix mania, when he is potentially literally too dangerous to live, is not because he's feeling nice. It's because he's decided that it's the best of a bad bunch of options: this way, he can actually affect the outcome, and because putting a bullet in Harry's head wouldn't work - and if he thought it was necessary, and that it would work, he'd do it in a heartbeat (though he does admit that he'd feel guilty).

Wolfgang Grimmer of Monster is a rare example of a hero whose sociopathic traits are shown in a sympathetic light. In spite of his lack of emotion, he is a pretty nice guy who actually performs heroic deeds because he wants to. His "Magnificent Steiner" persona is the more traditional version of this, as it causes him to kill his enemies in a more brutal fashion.

Person of Interest has a few.
Most notably Sameen Shaw, an actual diagnosed sociopath (specifically, she has an Axis II personality disorder) who works with team machine, pretty much because she has nothing better to do. She still has a strong moral centre, however, and despite never expressing any genuine empathy at any time, still has a few tender moments and a soft spot for Bear.
Reese tends to have a few more scruples, but he has had his moments, especially after a corrupt cop killed someone he cared about.
Root on the other hand most likely does not qualify, even after her Heel–Face Turn in season 3. In her evil days, she notes she'd like to be a sociopath as it would make a lot of the things she did easier.

The lead character of MD Geist is somewhere between this and Villain Protagonist. While obviously he's an evil, evil man, he's also the psychotic result of a Super Soldier program by an offworld human faction, meaning that A: he's programmed to only care about fighting and seek to always have battles to fight, and B: he's still loyal to his creators, who have decided it's best to just scrub all life from the colony world and repopulate it with fresh colonists.

Reaver from Fable fits this trope to a tee. In Fable 2, he's explicitly described as "The Hero of Skill", and yet he carries out so many evil actions that you are left wondering exactly how he's supposed to be better than the designated villain Lucien. In both games you have to keep him as an ally! The reason that so many players wanted to kill him include:
Continuously sacrificing villagers from Oakvale to maintain his youth.
Pretending to help the Hero of Bowerstone but instead trying to sacrifice them to maintain his youth.
Betraying the Hero again by deciding to collect the bounty Lucien has put on him.
Killing the lovable inventor Barnum when Reaver discovers it will take three months to "developorise" his photograph.
If the player waits too long, killing Lucien and depriving the player of the revenge they have waited years for.
Returning in Fable 3 as the evil, exploitative and cruel ruler of Bowerstone Industrial, where he shoots dissidents and happily uses child labour.
Sicking various horrible creatures on the player as part of his Wheel of Misfortune.
Compulsorily becoming the player's royal advisor and advocating all manner of nasty schemes

Interestingly, while Ultima IV is written with the clear expectation that you should be the diametric opposite of this, there is the fact that Virtues can't actually go below zero. So there's nothing stopping you from spending the first part of the game stealing, murdering city guards for money and experience, abusing the trust of blind herbalists by underpaying them for their services, and messing around with incredibly evil skulls... until you have a few levels under your belt, plenty of money, and reagents for your spells, at which point you turn into a living saint. Also, while giving money to beggars is Compassionate, doing so by giving one coin at a time (to maximise the reward) is questionable ethics.

In the Izaya Orihara spin-off from Durarara!! Izaya himself counts. In Durarara!! he was a Manipulative Bastard, The Sociopath and a Psychopathic Man Child. However, it is made clear he only helps or hurts people on a whim and is neither good nor evil. Now, the protagonist in his own series, he hasn't changed a bit, for example, after talking a girl down from blowing up a building, he takes the bomb, pins it to the ceiling and sets it off for fun.

Played with for L's character in Story of the Century, whose canonical role as the Big Good becomes deconstructed; he looks like this at his worst due to his apparent Lack of Empathy and frosty single-tracked demeanor. It gets to a point where he's sometimes treated as the Villain Protagonist of the story, that is until Light and Misa are revealed to be the REAL villains, but even then. However, there are moments in the story and in its supplementary material that suggest that he does care more about people than he lets on, he begins to act a little more "human" around Morality Pet Erin (though he will never outright admit how important she is to him, and sometimes not even she's safe from his dirty play) and ends up making a Heroic Sacrifice at the end. Unfortunately, the way he goes about it earns him the treatment one may get from crossing the Moral Event Horizon instead.
The trope appears again in the sequel, And The Story Continues. Near appears to be this at first for more or less the same reasons his predecessor did, but is slowly revealed to be, while mean and not above dirty play, very much capable of empathy and forming attachments...if to few select people. There is also Umbra, a shinigami who betrays both Kiyomi and Teru without a second thought and sees murder as a perfectly viable solution to a problem regardless of the scale thereof (i.e., someone making his Morality Chain Erin cry). Generally he defects to Near's side out of a) personal boredom, b) loyalty to Erin, and c) a desire to learn more about his past (he is all but confirmed outright to be L's reincarnation).

Jade Curtiss from Tales of the Abyss is a genuinely compelling example of this, being mentioned as killing animals for fun in his childhood, not being able to form significant emotional bonds, and being described by his own sister as having something "wrong" with the way he thinks. Despite what can be easily interpreted as a genuine lack of most emotions and morality, he has come to be troubled by his lack of comprehension in those areas and still tries to consciously compensate for this by doing what he speculates others would see as the "right" thing. It manages to be deeply touching when near the end of the story Jade calmly tells Luke that even though Luke is objectively the better choice to die, he is compelled to stop him because he considers Luke his friend.

Kratos from God of War Series. In some games he's a somewhat-tragic Byronic Hero, in others he's just a rampaging deicide machine, but no matter what he's on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge and anyone in his way is going to be splattered on the walls, regardless of consequences.

Alucard from Hellsing (more so in the manga/OVA). He has no regard for human life (though deep down he admires humanity), will kill at any opportunity if allowed, and enjoys the thrill of war. He does at least attempt to limit his body count to those who actually are a part of the battle he's in.

The trope appears again in the sequel, And The Story Continues. Near appears to be this at first for more or less the same reasons his predecessor did, but is slowly revealed to be, while mean and not above dirty play, very much capable of empathy and forming attachments...if to few select people. There is also Umbra, a shinigami who betrays both Kiyomi and Teru without a second thought and sees murder as a perfectly viable solution to a problem regardless of the scale thereof (i.e., someone making his Morality Chain Erin cry). Generally he defects to Near's side out of a) personal boredom, b) loyalty to Erin, and c) a desire to learn more about his past (he is all but confirmed outright to be L's reincarnation).

Tsukasa Kadoya, the titular character of Kamen Rider Decade, is more than willing to troll, manipulate and just generally be unpleasant, although his friends usually act as his moral compass. Most of the show is driven by the question of whether he is ultimately a hero or a Villain Protagonist.

The Saint Seiya/The Rising of the Shield Hero crossover The Hero Melromarc Needs and Deserves has Cancer Deathmask cast in Naofumi's place. Considering how he is in Saint Seiya and he was summoned from well before he received his slice of Humble Pie, he becomes this simply by deciding to help-while still considering killing everyone in Melromarc's capital if the king continues with his condiscendent attitude.
