* This is what ComicBook/ThePunisher's rationale for his one man war on crime eventually comes down to.
--> I went to war with murderers, thieves, with slavers and dealers, the parasites who preyed on human weakness. That weakness was a feeding ground that stretched beyond the infinite. [[HopelessWar The evil it fed would never end]]. So I decided, [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil neither would my war.]]

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series, the Daedra, most of whom are evil or amoral enough to be perceived as such, are almost impossible to truly destroy. They are manifestations of the primal forces of reality, so even if their avatar was somehow destroyed, a new avatar would form to take their place. The best anyone can do is shatter their link to the mortal realm and banish them back into Oblivion.

* It is eventually revealed that the BigBad of ''Manga/UshioandAndTora'', Hakumen no Mono (White Mask), possesses a variation of this: [[spoiler:fear and hate of it makes it grow bigger and stronger. Moreover, any attack fueled by hatred towards it will at best fail to kill him, at worst fail to cause any of damage at all; only attacks fueled by the will to save others will harm it]].

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'', the Yevon religion tells the people of Spira that Sin was created as punishment for wrongs done by people a thousand years ago. Until they completely repent for everything they've done wrong, Sin will eventually return after every defeat and cause more suffering. [[spoiler:Double subverted in that this is all a lie and Spira is doomed to an endless cycle of Calm and rebirth of Sin as far as the higher ups are concerned. The only known method of killing it requires the summoner to [[SenselessSacrifice sacrifice a close friend and cause said friend to become a summoned beast powerful enough to kill it, but the summoned beast will kill the summoner and eventually become the next Sin. In other words, it is summoned beasts that guarantee Sin's existence, but summoned beasts are composed of pyre flies and the Fayth; souls.]]]]

** This trope still applies, because one of the biggest themes in Madoka Magica is that curses will always arise; if one curse is destroyed, that just clears the way for another, possibly more powerful one. Happiness must always be balanced out by despair. It's the reason that, even after [[spoiler:Madoka's wish]], {{Magical Girl}}s still have to fight wraiths instead of witches; misfortune and despair still exist in the world and are going to find some sort of magical personification for them to fight.

** This is the reason that Madoka's witch form, Kriemhild Gretchen, is so unbeatable. The only way to keep her from absorbing everyone into her LotusEaterMachine AssimilationPlot barrier-[[BuffySpeak thingy]] would be to purge the world of all misfortune. If there's no misfortune, [[DarkMessiah she'll think the world is already heaven]].
