It's a laugh that's generally associated with a haughty bitch, usually at the expense of other people's misfortune. Who was the first anime character to have done it?

The earliest known user I can think of is Kodachi from Ranma 1/2. Of course, I'm speaking of her Japanese voice (don't listen to her English laugh unless you also like the sound of nails on a chalkboard). Here's an example of how the laugh sounds like, straight from Kodachi's seiyu!

Obviously, the first person to laugh like this was Santa Claus, who then tried to start a trend in kid's shows in Japan. He must have done it to spread cheer in anime.

... Upon which this morphed into something even he could not dream of. I am reminded of Tetsuo's transformation in Akira.

That's my favorite of any anime laugh, though I'm not sure what the Ur example is.
