* Grünfeld Bach in ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' is a holy warrior with an unwavering drive to destroy "agents of Satan" like vampires, [[YouKilledMyFather LaCroix]] in particular. Unfortunately he's a-okay with VanHelsingHateCrimes, doesn't mind collateral damage like burning down or blowing up an inhabited building to get one vampire, and kills at least one of his own men for disputing orders.

* MCPO John-117 (aka Master Chief) from the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' franchise starts off at this, especially in the novels. No matter what the situation, John is the consumate soldier. Even in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'', he readily accepts the orders of Tom Lasky (who, as a cadet, [[spoiler: had his ass saved by the Chief) even though he (the Master Chief) is much more experienced, simply because Lasky is an officer.]] Granted, this is what [=NCOs=] are expected to do with officers in general, but John is a legend in the UNSC, and Lasky even [[LampshadeHanging points out]], "Feels kinda odd for you to call me "Sir." But John is the consummate soldier, and follows the chain of command, even when the protocol is contrary to common sense.
** By ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'' however, he goes AWOL to find [[spoiler: Cortana]] whose become a KnightTemplar who seeks to bring peace to the universe by attaining the Mantle of Responsibility and ruling as a tyrannical authoritarian. [[spoiler:By using the Guardians, she plans to use their power to annihilate species who don't adhere to her moral authority.]]

* The main villains of ''MasterOfTheWind'', the Hand, are a religious cult that fanatically believes that humans alone deserve to rule Soleste, and all nonhumans must be subjugated. Most of their forces consist of "holy" people who utilize light magic, and throughout the series they claim to be the "chosen of [[CrystalDragonJesus Arcadius]]" and that their actions are "spreading his divine will". [[spoiler:It turns out at the end that its all a farce. While the Hand's leader fanatically believes in the cult's message, TheDragon, who turns out to be the real power behind the Hand, doesn't actually care about Acradius' "message", and started the Hand purely so she could revel in the power she would have once they took over the world.]]

* The villains of ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedI'' are literal and figurative [[TheKnightsTemplar Knights Templar]], while the Assassin Order that Altaïr works for is made up of more moderate {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s.

* Superman - or rather, Regime Superman - in ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' embodies this trope perfectly, as the fallen Man of Steel shows us how dark an innocent, idealistic hero we know and love can turn should he lose the ones he cherishes and subsequently push his "justice" too far. He starts by [[spoiler:murdering Joker, who pushed him into that, then forcibly stopping all wars, then killing entire invasion force from Apocalypse, then start hunting all who oppose or resist him, including his former friends and innocent people, and often murdering them. His supporters from fallen Justice League are this too, to different extents.]]
* Count [[MaliciousMisnaming Vulgar]]-- er, Veger from ''VideoGame/Jak3Wastelander'' certainly deserved a place. He didn't like Dark Eco. That was OK, nobody particularly liked Dark Eco. However, he exiled and repeatedly attempted to kill Jak, whose Dark Eco powers ''let him save the world at the end of the previous game''. He even described himself as "the glorious light that burns away the shadows" in between attempts to turn Haven City into a totalitarian theocracy under his rule, subverting UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans because it wasn't really going to be that much of a utopia with a psychotic zealot like Veger in charge.

*** However, by the time of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the East Coast Brotherhood (including the Outcasts who rejoined) has reverted to its previous ways. After Elder Lyons and his daughter Sarah died (her death in combat [[UnfriendlyFire might not have been due to enemy fire]]), Arthur Maxson took control of the chapter after being appointed Elder by the West Coast Elders. They now regard all [[OurZombiesAreDifferent ghouls]], mutants, and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots synths]] as abominations that need to be wiped out, regardless of the fact that most of them are just regular people no different from normal humans. In the case of synths, [[TomatoInTheMirror some don't even know that they're synths]].
