    I'm looking for a novel/story/fan fiction available for free on internet where there's a MC who is a psychopath, one who acts for good reasons. What I want to say is that I want to read something with a MC who, for various reasons (education, curiosity etc.) acts in a good way and doesn't do bad things just because he/she can.

    I'm sure that some of you have in mind some people/characters who are psychopaths, like Ted Bundy or Kenneth Bianchi. What they have in common is a lack of emphathy(?) and the lack of restraints to do something bad.

    Hm, I can't really explain, but, I'm looking for a person who could be Ted Bundy, but he/she choosed not to be, kinda like it's explained in this video, at some point:

    Antiheroes, Masterminds or Villainous Overlords might fit it better, because frankly not a lot of chars are considered psychopaths and likable I think

    Well, I'm not sure if this meaning of the word psychopath is still viable, but, I'm looking for a character who has this traits:
    but doesn't act on them in a negative/harming way.

    Go for The marchant of death. You can find it on Royal Road (or webnovel)

    Found it, I've read few chapters from it, but the MC's kinda weird and give villain like vibes. In a way, he is. I'm not sure if he'll 'reform' himself.

    Oops didn't read the whole title. I didn't saw the "good" part
    In that novel, he will stick to his ideal, even at the cost of life. So bad guy, really bad guy.

    "Psychopath" and "acting for good reasons" don't really mesh well. Psychopaths have their own sense of values and moral guidelines, alien to those which are commonly shared, so technically every psychopath acts "for good reasons" from their point of view.
    Those values and morality may seem more "good" or "evil" aligned from the outside, of course, but when seen from the inside, they are quite bizarre either way.

    Do you mean you’re looking for an anti-hero like Dexter?

    how do you define 'good'? because killing villains can also be considered 'good'. also can you give an example of something your read because your wording is confusing.

    manga:
    aiki
    akagi

    Yeah it's a bit edgy on the 'psychopath' part but my other options are:

    Dungeon Defense
    Your and My Asylum

    Which are kinda edgy on the 'good' part. A totally 'good psychopath' is difficult.
