** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': For all of Zamasu's claims of justice and for the good of the universe by eradicating the mortals, it is clear that he only cares ''his'' version of utopia to the point that he is fully willing to murder other fellow gods who stand in his way. Indeed, the only reason he even get along or even care about his future self is that they are literally the same person with the same ideals.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''
** Griffith did initially seem to care at least a bit about his group of mercenaries, particularly Casca and Guts, and generally treats the other members kindly enough, but eventually, achieving his dream is the only thing he cares about, so much so that [[spoiler:he sacrifices the entire Band of the Hawk to a group of demons, in order to become one himself. The first thing he does with his newfound power and body is rape Casca in front of Guts, presumably just to spite him for daring to leave him. Never mind that Guts had fairly good reasons for doing so, Griffith just didn't understand, or if he did, didn't care.]]

* ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' ultimately reveals that [[spoiler: UTENA was this until almost the end. Her desire [[LadyAndKnight to protect Anthy and have her as her Rose Bride]] was less about Anthy's true personal needs, but about her need to use her as a "pet cause" so she can feel good about herself.]] And for worse, [[spoiler: Anthy was a DecoyDamsel, with her BigBad older brother Akio ''counting'' on Utena's SecretlySelfish side to make her his UnwittingPawn.]] From then on, [[spoiler: Utena makes up her mind and decides to fight not just to protect Anthy, but '''to give her the chance to save herself'''.]]

*** [[GreaterScopeVillain Madara]] is an even bigger case than Orochimaru and probably the biggest example in the series.

First he was mad because his clan wanted to stop fighting the Senju clan ([[SunkCostFallacy because he, you see, believed that it would render the sacrifices of countless Uchiha - including his own brother senseless]]). Then when he's still agreed to a truce he throw ''a tantrum'' because ''he'' didn't get to be Hokage (because he, you see, believed that if the first Hokage will Hashirama it would mean that the the second will Tobirama and Uchiha clan the end will come). Then he was displeased by that Uchiha clan did not listen to his warning and Madara in his turn just decided to ''forget about them''.

After this Madara in his turn ''himself'' decided [[GenreBlindness try to get the power of God and use it to put an end to all wars]] because he apparently believed that ''he'' will succeed where his predecessor failed.

** The first example we see is Orochimaru, one of the most powerful ninja in the first half of the series. To him, everything is about furthering his own goals and he will sacrifice anything for it. He adopts orphans, manipulates them, experiments on them and eventually has them killed when they're of no more use to him. Anything that he doesn't value is worthless unless it gets in his way, in which case he destroys it. If something goes wrong, you can expect that Orochimaru probably had a hand in it out of pure selfishness and dickery.

First he was mad because his clan wanted to stop fighting the Senju clan, then he was mad because he didn't get to be Hokage, and then he was mad because he felt his clan didn't respect him enough.]]
*** Then, there's [[ChronicBackstabbingDisorder Sasuke]], [[InTheBlood relative of the latter]] and [[DeceptiveDisciple student of the former]]. He takes the cake by outright ''admitting'' that he's being childish and impulsive... and doesn't care. Despite his reputation, he actually starts out as a lesser example. While he does abandon Konoha in favor of Orochimaru because he doesn't think he'll be able to become strong enough to kill Itachi while there, he doesn't kill Naruto when he has the chance, even though doing so would have unlocked the Mangekyo Sharingan. After Shippuden starts, he starts heading downhill and when he finally meets up with Itachi and after Itachi's death, he takes a [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope flying leap off the slippery slope]]. He immediately sacrifices his teammates when it becomes inconvenient to save them, attacks the Kage Summit and tries to kill everyone there in his effort to get to Danzo, and then once Danzo is dead decides [[MisplacedRetribution to kill every single person in Konoha]] because he believes that the Uchihas (who it turns out were wiped out to preempt them starting a civil war) were wronged in some way and that everyone in Konoha is mocking them by simply existing. [[spoiler:This reaches a head by the War arc. He decides to follow Itachi's footsteps and protect Konoha. His method of doing so is to kill the current Kage and use the tailed beasts to start a revolution which he believes will save the world by doing away with the old system and no matter what the others will think because '''he''' knows better what is best for the world and how to make this world a better place.]] In short, not only has his selfishness been turned UpToEleven, he's gone absolutely nuts. [[WordOfGod Kishimoto]] confirmed that Sasuke is "very self-centered, only concerned with himself".
*** This quality is a FatalFlaw older brother Sasuke: Itachi. He believed that he alone (and he alone) could fix everything, every time. He admitted this after his death. This led to his decision sacrificed his family, his home, his reputation, basically everything, to protect the Leaf and avert the civil war his family's coup would have caused. But also this the reason why he let Sasuke live and MindRaped Sasuke repeatedly by forcing him to repeatedly relive the gruesome deaths of their parents, forcing him to grow up into a bitter obsessive lunatic all so that Itachi could die on his own terms: At Sasuke's hands (which he didn't in the end, making all of his efforts totally meaningless).
*** And last but certainly not least. Tobi [[spoiler:aka ''Obito'']], has shades of this. [[spoiler:Tobi's a notable case in that he was Obito, one of the best of the Uchiha personality wise and, along with Shisui, one of the few who ''didn't'' suffer from this. However, Rin's death served as his DespairEventHorizon, and subsequently brought out all the Uchiha traits he used to lack, including this and the talent that Uchiha Clan ninja tend to have. Now, he claims he's completing his AssimilationPlot in order to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans create a better world]] but the truth is that he doesn't care about this world anymore, due to his apparent thought of CrapSackWorld status, and thinks that everybody will be resurrected and happy in his dream world. What he most of all wants in the end this to live in his ideal world where [[TheLostLenore Rin]] and the other his teammates are alive but, also he doesn't care for the remaining living members of his team in this world and also he refuses to acknowledge Rin's sacrifice because believes that [[CrapsackWorld this world]] forced her to go on this the sacrifice and that this the world has turned the remaining members of his team including him in the [[HumansAreBastards "trash"]] and instead believes that they are ideal, can only exist in world illusions.]]

* Prussia from ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia''. He calls himself 'Ore-sama' (a narcissistic way of saying 'I' in Japanese). He likes to remind himself how awesome he is, and he tells the others to praise him, and bow down to him. It's also known that he kept diaries since he was formed; all of the entries start with "I am so cool," "I was so cool today," or something along those lines. The English translations of various comics have him refer to/introduce himself as "the awesome me," which has become a frequent phrase in fanon.
