* 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]].

** What makes the Chantry even more interesting is that this is subverted just as often as it is played straight. While there are definitely those templars who are extreme in their methods, the Warden meets quite a few who are more reasonable and pragmatic. They are partially justified because what they guard against -- demonic possession from the Fade -- is real, subtle, and very, very dangerous.
