* Franchise/{{Batman}}:
** The villain ComicBook/RasAlGhul, who, in the comics and animated series based on them, has tried multiple times to wipe out more than eighty percent of Earth's population, because it would allegedly return Earth to a more stable ecosystem. However, the moments at which he really shows his Animal Wrongs side are when dealing with the menagerie of endangered animals he collects and keeps. In one comic in particular, he was shown to have had a henchman murdered because he accidentally killed a rare sort of tiger cub by feeding it chocolate, dooming its species to extinction according to Ra's.
** Switch animals with plants, and Batman's other foe Poison Ivy fits pretty well. DependingOnTheWriter, though, she can be much more soft-hearted (for instance, creating an eco-friendly refuge for Gotham's orphans in the city park during the ''No Mans Land'' arc). On the other hand, on the same caliber, she can also be even ''more'' extreme than usual for this trope: several writers have actually depicted her engineering {{Man Eating Plant}}s and feeding humans to them... sometimes not for any "crime" beyond simply being human, or even for her own entertainment/pleasure. This culminated in the "Harvest" storyline, where one of her man-eaters absorbed so many fragmented psyches from a year of ceaseless feedings (devouring Ivy's former lovers she tired of, henchmen she deemed incompetent, and even random passers by who smiled back at her) that it mutated into Harvest, a PlantPerson that [[CreateYourOwnVillain sought to kill her out of a drive for revenge]].

* Many, many, many YouTube videos showing people interacting with animals is bound to be filled with comments of [[BestialityIsDepraved animal lovers]] saying that [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman the human interacting with the animal should be killed, injured, or arrested]] for doing so. Keep in mind that usually these interactions are nothing more than just an extremely mild bother for the animals like a housefly towards us or the human showing off the animal to educate viewers.

* Man Last from ''TabletopGame/DamnationDecade'' are militantly anti-human civilization. They want to push humanity off the top of the food chain and are planning to use an extraterrestrial virus to wipe out the majority of the human race once they vaccinate themselves against it.



* There are some traits of this in ''TabletopGame/{{Monsterpocalypse}}'''s Green Fury. Only now they have dinosaurs. Dinosaurs as big and powerful as ''Godzilla''.



* The Cult of Planet in ''[[VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire]]'' is kind of like this, except they are defending an environment that is ''more'' than capable of defending itself, and believe in their cause so strongly they would gladly let humanity go extinct to preserve Planet. (They can convince Planet not to kill ''them'' by doing this, and in fact lend them aid in the form of slightly more docile -- to them -- wildlife.)



* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' had Hayley falling in with an environmentalist group whose leader insists that he's a "[[UsefulNotes/{{Otherkin}} tree born in a man's body]]" and "wears" nothing but a potted plant. He also tries to blow up the new mall, but only succeeds in destroying Francine's muffin kiosk and Klaus' human body from [[TwoLinesNoWaiting the main plot]]. When he does this, Haley rejects him, shoving him over and breaking his pot, causing him to desperately heap dirt around his body while acting like he's suffocating.

* Polish superhero parody comic book series ''Likwidator'' intentionally embraces this trope and takes it to its logical extreme. The storyline consists mostly of the main hero wandering around killing evil people who mistreat nature -- eg. cut trees, work in environment-polluting factories, hunt, buy meat in the store, keep their dog on a leash... Most readers get gravely offended, which is probably the point.



* In ''FanFic/ShadowchasersSeries'' continuity, Red Feather (back when she called herself White Feather) had only good intentions for the environment in mind. In fact, to this day, she is repulsed by groups who take it to far. But back then, she was naïve to the ways of humans, and too reluctant to use technology to research new members thoroughly. This resulted in two eco-terrorists joining her group by mistake, and a disaster that she had to take responsibility for. In the present day, having been released on parole, [[MeaningfulRename she renamed herself Red Feather]] (as the purity her old name represented had been tarnished) and joined the title organization [[GaiasVengeance to defend nature with a more hands-on approach.]]



* In the Creator/TomClancy novel ''Literature/RainbowSix'', an environmentalist group plots the destruction of the entire human race aside from themselves. Their comeuppance comes when the titular team destroys their hideout, forces them to strip naked and abandons them in the jungle to fend for themselves without any technology whatsoever. According to one of the team's members (a special forces survivalist), they have a ''very'' slim chance of survival.



* The antagonist in ''Saints at the River'' is Luke Miller, a pissed-off environmentalist that believes that building a temporary dam to recover the body of a drowned child (and thus alter the river flow) would set a precedent that would enable further damage to the environment. Maggie, the journalist who is the protagonist in the story, returns to her hometown to chronicle the dispute between the townsfolk who want to recover the body by building the dam and the environmentalists, led by Luke, who try to thwart the plan. Luke is depicted as a misanthropic {{Cloudcuckoolander}} who believes that nature, particularly the titular river, is the only thing in the world that's pure.
* In Creator/JohnRingo's ''Literature/LegacyOfTheAldenata'', "Greens" conspire to sabotage the war effort and let most of humanity get killed by a HordeOfAlienLocusts that eat anything organic on invaded planets, and then swarm to others once the biosphere collapses, fueled by a mixture of antipathy towards civilization and ignorance of Posleen behavior.



* The novelized version of Tom Clancy's ''VideoGame/EndWar'' has a terrorist group led by a guy named Green Vox. They're an environmental group and during the [[spoiler:Soviet invasion of Canada]] decide to blow up the oil fields with NUCLEAR WEAPONS... because oil is polluting the environment!
* The Literature/CHERUBSeries has several groups:
** Help Earth! first appears in ''The Recruit'' where they plan to make an attack on a conference between several major oil executives. They return in ''Divine Madness'' where they destroy Natural Gas facilities for ChurchOfHappyology The Survivors.
** ''Man vs Beast'' features the Zebra Alliance, Animal Freedom Militia, and Animal Freedom Army. The Zebra Alliance was a group that would rescue animals until the leader, Ryan Quinn, was arrested turning the group into a protest group. The Animal Freedom Miltia is a more violent group that would assault members of Animals Testing Companies threatening to kill them unless they quit. A spin-off group of them, the Animal Freedom Army, proves to be even more violent when they burn down a facility, bomb an executive's car, and plan to force feed a celebrity chef drain cleaner on live television.

* Creator/AlanDeanFoster's ''Literature/HumanxCommonwealth'' novel ''Flinx in Flux'' features as its primary antagonists a fanatical ecoterrorist group who believe in destroying all forms of "exploitation" of the natural order by humans. Their current target: a small genetic engineering firm working on the planet Longtunnel, which is renowned for the plasticity of its native lifeforms. Flinx gets involved when he accidentally rescues one of the company's researchers, the lovely and talented Clarity Held, who was kidnapped, interrogated, beaten, and left for dead on Alaspin. The group later mounts a full-scale armed assault on the Longtunnel facilities, and eventually tries to capture [[spoiler:Flinx himself, once they learn what he is]]. In this final battle, they pull a NiceJobFixingItVillain by accidentally breaking the mechanism [[spoiler:keeping Flinx and Pip asleep]].



* An episode of ''Series/CriminalMinds'' had an arsonist who began murdering men involved with corporations accused of being heavy polluters, as well as their families. It turns out he was acting alone, and was nothing more than a sadistic psychopath (he used a suit that allowed him to watch his victims burn up close). His actions disgusted the local environmental group whose website he was using to find his "justifiable" victims, especially the leader, who kills him in an instance of TakingYouWithMe.



* In ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'', Opus the penguin failed to find his mother due to an Uzi-toting animal rights group breaking into the animal testing lab that he broke into, kidnapping him, and then leaving him in the ice-cooler of a 7-11 because "they're on a bit of a shoe-string budget-wise."

See also FreeTheFrogs for a version set in schools. Most members of an Animal Wrongs Group will be {{Evil Vegetarian}}s. See EvilLuddite for when they're motivated by a hatred of technology rather than a love of nature. Compare with their cousin trope, the EcoTerrorist.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/Detentionaire'' featured a trio of kids with a habit of freeing frogs from mistreatment. Not only does this cause the school to be mostly quarantined (kicking off the plot of the episode), but they also ''caused a factory meltdown'', which nearly ''kills'' Lee and his friends, in order to save the frogs being used to color the product made there. [[spoiler: We also find out that they were responsible for the frogs appearing during The Prank, though they weren't responsible for The Prank itself; they merely used it as a distraction.]]
