* Surprisingly averted in [[Fanfic/LeftBeyond]] in which the "real" Antichrist has a brief cameo. The actual opposition to King Jesus (and primary player character), the Omega, are an AI that has specifically been designed to be amoral. If condemning 60% of humanity to Hell so that 0.01% has a chance to escape both Hell and Heaven to keep expanding into the universe, the math checks out, so that's what they will do.

* The title character's brothers in the Creator/AdamSandler film ''Film/LittleNicky'' (with the twist that in the ''Little Nicky''-verse, {{Satan is Good}}). He wasn't always like that, and ''his'' father (yes, in ''Little Nicky'' Satan is a LegacyCharacter) was supposedly even worse. By the time the movie takes place he's mellowed out into a NecessaryEvil.

** The Shanshu Prophecy says Angel will play a pivotal role in the end times, and be rewarded with humanity - but isn't explicit on which side he'll be fighting on. At the start of ''Angel'', the idea of Angel willingly cooperating with the Senor Partners seems unthinkable. By the end of Season Four, Angel has darkened enough and his circumstances have gotten hazy to the point where he does join them. According to the comics, the jury's still out on whether the Shanshu prophecy spells doom for mankind in general. Wesley's father, Roger Wyndam-Pryce (or at least a close facsimile thereof) warned that Angel is "more dangerous than you realize."

* Series/UltramanGeed is one such example, being the son of [[FallenHero Ultraman Belial]], who had wreaked chaos and had tried several times to destroy the Planet of Ultra. Geed, however, is heroic as they come.



* UltramanGeed's father is [[SatanicArchetype Belial]]- however he was raised by humans and didn't find out about his lineage until he found out he was an Ultra. It gives him some grief as the populace has noticed his similarity to Belial which reduces his popularity rating.

Whatever the reason, this AntiChrist doesn't feel like it and says, "ScrewDestiny! I'm not causing {{the End of the World as We Know It}}!" He might even sacrifice himself just to thwart the End of Days, thus [[MessianicArchetype dying for our sins]].

The Forces of Evil[[TradeSnark ™]] often [[VillainousDemotivator make it really difficult for themselves;]] by demanding that their champion [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten kill their lover, their friends, and anyone who is nice to them]]. The Anti Antichrist didn't want to join their club in the first place; how is this supposed to convince them? What did they [[WhatWereYouThinking think]] the response was going to be? They don't consider it at all. It's part of the [[AndYourLittleDogToo rules]], dagnabit. If they promised and delivered BetterLivingThroughEvil, they might have had more success.

Often overlaps with ApocalypseMaiden, which many Anti Antichrists are by nature. Compare IAmNotAGun, where a war machine refuses to follow its programming to destroy everything. See also TheUnchosenOne.

Not to be confused with SatanIsGood, which is distinguished by having the apparent bringer of evil be a covert force for good, whereas Anti Antichrists generally represent ''actual'' forces of evil.

* Adam of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/GoodOmens''. He's less Anti Antichrist and more just good old-fashioned ignorance of his destiny for most of the story, but when he awakens, rather than bringing about the Apocalypse, he decides he [[StatusQuoIsGod really prefers the world the way it is]].

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' gives us a double subversion in the form of Jacen Solo, son of Han and Leia Solo. Jacen trained as a Jedi under his uncle, and he grew into a pacifist at the end of the Vong war. But he started walking a dark path after a five-year journey to learn more about the Force, and he eventually became a Sith. Jacen initially didn't like the idea of becoming a Sith, but he embraced his identity as the one to remake the galaxy more as time went on, even after all his family started leaving him. He ultimately went back into Anti Antichrist territory to rescue his girlfriend and their daughter from the Empire, but before he could, his sister, Jaina, killed him. [[spoiler:His family's safe.]]

* Sam from ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. He certainly didn't ''want'' to lead a demon army against humankind, but he was intended to, and defied that fate despite what most characters expected. Too bad he was part of an [[EvilPlan overarching plot]] where he had been infected with demon blood due to a [[DealWithTheDevil deal]] before he was born, chosen aeons before [[spoiler:to set the Devil free and to act as his physical vessel during the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt End of Days]],]] and set up so that his efforts to prevent the Apocalypse using [[PsychoSerum demon-blood]]-born powers actually [[NiceJobBreakingItHero caused]] the [[SignsOfTheEndTimes prelude to Apocalypse]][[spoiler:and released Lucifer from his Cage. Acquiescing to being possessed by Lucifer just so he could [[HeroicWillpower gain control]] of his body long enough to [[FateWorseThanDeath throw both of them]] [[SealedEvilInACan into the Cage]],]] Sam [[HeroicSacrifice managed]] to avert the Apocalypse [[spoiler:and the final battle to defeat Lucifer that would raze the world]]. Job well done.

Added DiffLines:

** Jack from season 13 is another variation, being the literal son of Lucifer and a human woman, thus making him a half-angel. Dean is totally convinced that he's destined to turn evil, while Sam is convinced that they can teach him to be good. Jury's still out, but with more evidence pointing towards him being an Anti-Antichrist.

* [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]], although technically not created to destroy the world, was created for a nonetheless similarly sinister purpose: Initially to replace Big Boss should he leave the organization, and finally to kill Big Boss and thus cement The Patriots' control over the world. Eventually, he turns against The Patriots and ultimately saves the world, more or less.
