** Batman himself becomes this in various alternate universes, with one prominent example being ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' which is set some years in the future and features an older, more cynical Batman who has finally brought peace to Gotham City -- by transforming it into a totalitarian police state patrolled by his private army of GiantMook robots. Some story arcs such as ''ComicBook/BatmanHush'', also toy with the idea of the Caped Crusader becoming one of these in the present day, pushing him to some hitherto-unreached breaking point where he considers the idea only to walk him back from the brink via the intervention of one of his trusted confidants (usually Commissioner Gordon).

** Batman himself is depicted as being on the verge of becoming one many times, with Robin or Alfred usually talking him out of it.

* ''ComicBook/NemesisTheWarlock'': Torquemada fully believes that his genocidal crusades to purge the universe of all alien life and ruling humanity through terror is the 'right' thing to do. Noted by the man himself in a 2000 AD pin-up after winning The Eagle Award for best comic villain of 1984:
-->'''Torquemada:''' ''"Villain"''? This vile slur on my good name shall be avenged!

** SJS Judge Pin went around [[SlashedThroat slitting the throats]] and taking the helmets of judges she felt were unworthy of the badge.

** Judge Death takes this to its [[LogicalFallacies "logical"]] extreme: [[LogicalFallacies since all crimes are committed by the living, then life itself should be considered a crime]]. As his CatchPhrase goes, "The crime is life. The sentence is DEATH." Because of their missionary zeal and love of killing, the Dark Judges have a disturbing habit of calling their enemies "evildoers". Enemies as in the human Judges who try to stop the foursome from sadistically slaughtering the entire population of their city.

** [[spoiler:Getaway]] was gradually revealed as this. [[spoiler: A member of the Diplomatic Corps.]] He would perform odd-jobs for the Autobot's resident manipulator Prowl. [[spoiler:Getaway]] made a lot of friends with his easy charm, but beneath that friendly exterior is a violent fanaticism. The Autobot cause is noble and just, and when Megatron makes a HeelFaceTurn, that's when he takes matters into his own hands. From trying to get the naive Tailgate killed by Megatron to prompt an execution, to ultimately [[spoiler:unleashing a months long gambit to have Megatron and anyone willing to give him a second chance, sentenced to death at the hands of the DJD]]. After all the civilizations he ruined, Megatron is the enemy and anyone who sides with him can burn with him.

** The Functionist Council were a group of fanatics who took MeasuringTheMarigolds to the extreme with their attempts to classify and segregate society based on which alt-modes were the most useful. Though they died early on in the main timeline the characters visit an alt-timeline where the Functionists took over. They've turned the world into a dystopia and constantly kill off entire groups of Transformers who they believe cannot fulfill a purpose. They've got delusional god complexes and anything diverting from their ideal of perfection they have destroyed as they see it as an affront to their god Primus. Their grand plan was to recycle most of the population into mindless kill-bots so they could wage galactic genocide and destroy all that they decreed incongruous with their beliefs.

* ''ComicBook/IronMan'' became one of these during and after ''ComicBook/CivilWar''. This need not have happened; both sides were intended to have valid points, but the Editors failed to realise that some of the writers agreed with the Anti-Registration side, so they just [[StrawCharacter kept penning atrocity after atrocity.]] The main book had him (illegally) clone a god and set him on his former friends, resulting in the death of one. Moreover, the atrocities that didn't involve Iron Man, such as arresting ComicBook/CaptainAmerica for refusing to enforce something that isn't a law under the orders of someone who has no authority over him, also took place in the main book. It was a Knight Templar orgy from the beginning.

* ''ComicBook/TheUltimates2015:'' Master Order, anthropomorphic personification of order, starts turning into one [[spoiler:after Galactus attains his true purpose. Insisting this disrupts the status quo, Order tries forcing him to change back, and Galactus responds by punching his teeth out. The next time Order reappears, he's nursing a grudge, demanding Galactus change back, and when the Living Tribunal decides he doesn't have to, Order murders it, and merges with his brother Chaos to form a misshapen thing called Logos, which decides to start enforcing its idea of order on the universe by force.]] Galactus does try pointing out something is making Order act this way, but by the time he does it's a little too late.

* In the indie graphic novel ''ComicBook/{{Artesia}}'', there are the Templars of Agall. These guys worship a patriarchal New God, calling those still dedicated to the matriarchal Old Goddesses heretics. It's their Islik-given duty to protect His church and slay those that oppose them. They have no respect for powerful women like the main character, and in their eyes, any woman who even seems to be dabbling in magic or herbalism deserves to be burned as a witch. Not very nice guys. And they happen to be pretty {{Badass}}.
