Gauron from Full Metal Panic! He does pretty much everything For the Evulz , because he gets off on it. Even Kalinin didn't expect Gauron to be such an extreme, insane, depraved pleasure seeker.

And then Hellsing has Arthur Hellsing. In his youth, he spent more time drinking and womanizing rather than fulfilling his duties to the organization's goal. Though, as he aged, he became more mature.

Her mother seems to be on the verge of giving up on making her more responsible by the time she's fifteen while her brother just barely manages to keep her under control sometimes. Fortunately for everyone around her, what's most fun for her happens to usually involve being friendly and chatty, though she definitely could have turned out worse.
