** The Zerg Overmind, with its will to infest ''everything''-- especially the Protoss-- in order to create the perfect species, might also count. [[spoiler: Partially. The rest is BrainwashedAndCray from [[BigBad Amon,]] [[EldritchAbomination its creator.]]

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGate 2'', Jahiera's personal quest revolves around a radical branch of the Harpers who believe that you must die due to your nature as a Bhaalspawn, regardless of whether you're a heroic person or not.

* [[spoiler: Nikolai]] from ''[[{{VideoGame/AnarchyReigns}} Anarchy Reigns]]'' is one of the worst. He claims to work for law and order, but in the end, he just belives that the law is whatever the strong decide it should be, and order is a way to keep the weak on the bottom and himself on top.

** [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedII The sequel]] reveals that [[spoiler:a large amount of the disorder and corruption in society comes directly from the Knights Templar to begin with. As they see themselves as the only sane and reasonable organization, eliminating individuals who are truly good and powerful, and who coincidentally interfere with their personal agendas, is entirely reasonable. To give an idea just how twisted their view is, ''[[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]]'' was a member, as was [[JosefStalin Stalin]], Franklin Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill.]] It strongly suggests, however, that a good bit of the Templars in late-1400s Italy were actually "in it" for personal gain, or otherwise using the Templar Order's ideals as political cover to be personally scummy, i.e. Marco Barbarigo. Cesare Borgia, the main antagonist of ''Brotherhood'', doesn't even bother with that pretense and is all about military conquest and personal glory/greed, not even mentioning the Order. The Templars in "Revelations" seem to go back to the roots of what they intended. [[spoiler:Prince Ahmet]] believed that UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans as it would create a world where nobody is divided by their differences.

* This is Marie D'Artois' schtick in VideoGame/{{Anno1404}} - she will destroy anyone who go against what she believes is right and holy, civilian or not. During the story mode, she even leads an army that could effectively be seen as an analogue to the real life organization.

** Many of the angels have this attitude, feeling any being of demonic origin must be exterminated. In the past they voted on destroying humanity because of their half-demon, half-angel heritage and ''barely'' decided to spare them.
*** In ''Reaper of Souls'' the Archangel Malthael and his followers follow through on trying to wipe out humanity, feeling that [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill they cannot be trusted to choose between good and evil]]. They even attack their angelic brethren in an attempt to delay the player's pursuit.

**** Of course, if you take Naoya's route in the UpdatedRerelease, [[spoiler:the angels go right back to smiting anybody who opposes them]].

* Namm from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is the in-universe god of this trope and proud of it. He's bogged down in an aeons-long war with the ManipulativeBastard demon lord Tlacolotl and has shown no hesitation about slaughtering countless demons, anyone who tries to [[WithUsOrAgainstUs sit out the war]] and even a member of ''his own angelic pantheon'' in his boundless zeal to win. What makes it that much worse is that Tlacolotl really ''is'' that much of a threat.

* 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.
