I'm not convinced Light is a psychopath. Or, at least, if he is, then almost everyone else in DN is, too. Basically, to be qualified as a psychopath, one must score high on both factors of Hare's checklist (this is used to evaluate risks connected to releasing prisoners on probation, Wikipedia refers to it as the "golden standard"), and while Light would score rather high on the first one, the same does not hold for the second factor. If we discard manipulative behaviour (since the situation is so paranoid _everyone_ is manipulative), we're only left with lack of empathy - and this is exhibited by Light, L, Near, Mello, Misa, Mikami and Takada at the very least. All of them would no doubt justify this by pointing out the necessity of cruelty in their respective situations. Psychopaths have no strong feeling of justice, either. So, of those, only Mello would qualify in the end. Light's delusions of grandeur can be explained by the rather more likely narcissistic personality disorder, and we don't know enough about Near to reach any certain conclusion, though the manga hints he's as bad as Mello or worse. Usually what is meant by the term in pop culture is really narcissistic sadists (impossibly high opinion of themselves, no empathy / enjoy suffering of others, any pain inflicted on them results in abnormal reactions) rather than actual psychopaths (not necessarily sadists, prone to bad / rash decisions, cannot sustain interpersonal relationships for longer periods of time, commit petty crimes as much as serious ones, pathological liars).

However, by this criteria, almost no one would fit*, so nevermind me

The only one I can think of right now is the younger of the pair of criminals featured heavily in the last few episodes of GANTZ, but I wouldn't call him sexy.

Izaya Orihara hands down (:

He's sort of a psychopath in a way or maybe more of a sociopath?

I agree with amby1122! I absolutely love hisoka from hunter x hunter. To me he is the most hottest guy in the psychopath category.

I would think of Light as more of a delusional genius than a psychopath.
