Sociopaths on Television

Played By: David Tennant

#9: Francis Underwood

TV Shows

Played By: Kevin Spacey

TV Show: House of Cards

You will know that Francis Underwood is a mad man only after watching the first scene of this show. He is the kind of character that would do anything for power. He has indulged in almost every heinous crime and he has no place for remorse.

#8: Sherlock Holmes

Rude and Insulting characters

Played By: Benedict Cumberbatch

TV Show: Sherlock

The world’s greatest detective is also one of the most dysfunctional men in this show. His genius and prowess are hardly matched, but he is a complete sucker when it comes to people. He considers himself to be better than everybody else and only solves cases to satisfy himself.

#7: Lorne Malvo

Sociopaths on Television

Played By: Billy Bob Thornton

TV Show: Fargo

Lorne Malvo makes an appearance in the first season of Fargo and he was the highlight of that amazing season. He is a cold-blooded hitman who is not afraid of anybody. Killing others is not just another job for him, he truly enjoys doing it, which makes him a badass.

#6: Dr. Gregory House

Sociopaths on Television

Played By: Hugh Laurie

TV Show: House

The inspiration behind this Genius character was Sherlock Holmes, so it is obvious that he would inherit the trait of sociopathy from Sherlock. He had zero empathy for people who were not close to him, including his patients. He loved berating and insulting others to prove himself superior.

#5: The Governor

Played By: David Morrissey

TV Show: The Walking Dead

In a post-apocalyptic world, where the dead rule, perhaps being a sociopath is not the worst thing for survival. The Governor became exactly that to preserve what was close to him. He had no remorse for his actions as he killed others without hesitating and manipulated others to get his way.

#4: Moriarty

Sociopaths on Television

Played By: Andrew Scott

TV Show: Sherlock

A sociopathic hero like Sherlock Holmes deserves a villain who is even crazier than he is, and Moriarty is just that. Moriarty was incomplete without Sherlock Holmes and one could even say that he respected the detective. But he was also Bat-shit crazy, and narcissistic, which made him the perfect villain.

#3: Joffrey Baratheon

Played By: Jack Gleeson

TV Show: Game of Thrones

Joffrey is one of the most hated characters of all time and there is a good reason for that. He was cruel, arrogant, sadistic and ruthless. He enjoyed watching other people in pain and took pleasure in it. He would have definitely grown up to become worse than the Mad King.

#2: Dexter Morgan

Fan Favorite Mystery TV Shows

Played By: Michael C. Hall

TV Show: Dexter

Dexter Morgan is a meticulous serial killer with a moral code. He enjoys chopping other people, but he only uses his knife on evil people. This show features a lot of serial killers, but Dexter is the biggest and smartest one of them all.

#1: Hannibal Lecter

Sociopaths on Television

Played By: Mads Mikkelsen

TV Show: Hannibal

The character of Hannibal Lecter just keeps on giving, as we have not seen a single bad adaptation of the character. Mads Mikkelsen’s portrayal of Hannibal is fantastic. The character has the title of a “Pure Sociopath” as he considers himself to be a predator, who hunts other humans for consumption.
