* The ''Doomguard'' faction in the ''Dungeons&Dragons'' setting ''{{Planescape}}'' has this as their ideal. The end of everything can not be prevented, and is therefore desirable. Some members might regret the suffering of the people that have died, but everything that is completely destroyed really makes their day.

It's not hard to spot this guy (or gal) in an AfterTheEnd setting: he's the one dancing merrily on the grave of civilization. What his particular beef was with society may vary, but in all cases he's overjoyed to have seen it bite the dust. He's not typically the [[OmnicidalManiac one responsible for]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom the big boom]], though he might shake the hand of whoever is given the opportunity. Could possibly be considered a slightly less insane version of PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery.
