* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'': The [[TheHunter CCG]] is entirely dedicated to the cause of wiping out the entire Ghoul race, even peaceful ones who don't actually hurt anyone. Humans who sympathize with or aid Ghouls are shown no mercy.

*** An early episode also subverts this when Brother Tres Iqus, GunKata {{Badass}} ''extraordinaire'', declares his intent to kill an innocent child simply because he has been ordered to by his superiors, but runs out of bullets. Moments later, he empties his weapon into an attacker and walks away (revealing that he does not mindlessly follow orders from the "good guys"), which is saying something because Tres ''[[ArtificialHuman is an android]]''.

* ''Anime/DragonballSuper'': Zamasu, Supreme Kai-in-training of Universe 10, seems to have this as his primary character trait. He's disgusted by the fact that mortal beings are flawed, and believes the very existence of mortals to be a blight upon the universe. He argues at one point that, as a god, his duty should be to annihilate evil wherever he finds it. His mentor, Gowasu, praises his strong sense of justice but condemns his lack of compassion, saying that their duty should be to guide mortals and help them improve themselves.

** Danzo from is one. While he does acknowledge that some of his actions are [[NecessarilyEvil morally reprehensible]], the lengths he is willing to go to, his conviction that only he can save the world, and the fact that he still believes his methods to be fully justified even when they ''cause'' most of the problems in the series, pushes him over the edge from WellIntentionedExtremist into this trope.

* In ''Manga/OnePiece'', since the [[VillainProtagonist heroes are pirates]], many of the Marine officers are Knights Templar, the most notable of whom is probably [[spoiler:Admiral Akainu. The very first thing we see him do is [[MoralEventHorizon blow up a civilian ship]] simply because they ''might'' have one of the scholars the World Government wanted to wipe out aboard. They didn't]].
