* Simon Phoenix from ''Film/DemolitionMan'' is a ChaoticEvil mass murderer who wants ultimate freedom just so he can destroy, plunder, and rape as much as he wants. This is the primary conflict with his boss Dr. Cocteau, the [[WellIntentionedExtremist benevolent dictator]] of the San Angeles future society, who represents the UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans side because he wants to [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill preserve peace by suppressing free will]]. Phoenix eventually murders and usurps Cocteau's position to give the people his own ideal society of constant death and chaos.

The third, final, and most despicable trope in the unholy trinity of villainous objectives, Dystopia Justifies The Means is where the goal of the BigBad is nothing less than the deliberate creation of a {{Dystopia}}, a land, planet, universe or multiverse of perpetual misery and suffering, or some other form of evil. The result can be a CrapsackWorld, VillainWorld, HellOnEarth, or some combination thereof.

* ''Literature/TheTurnerDiaries'' (written by a Neo Nazi) has protagonists who want to take what they consider a CrapsackWorld (one with private ownership of guns outlawed, minorities having rights and "oppressing" the pure, white people), and they plan to replace that [[VillainWorld with a world that has everyone but the white people dead and the only survivors will be fanatical white supremacists]], but only after [[CrapsackWorld they use nuclear, chemical and biological weapons to kill everyone else they don't like, even if it means rendering most of the world uninhabitable.]]

*** Hot Coldman, from Peace Walker, is a straight example, too. He tries to wear a fig leaf of justification over it, but it's clear that, deep down, he's just a vicious, jealous power-tripper who enjoys crushing hopes and wreaking havoc.

** And Skull Face is even WORSE. He plans to make the world suffer for what he went through, via the use of ethnic-cleansing bioweapons that will kill anyone of a specific culture (and the First World is indeed first on the list) and the next-generation in nuclear warfare: ''low-detection nuke crafting kits'' that are sold to second-world countries and terrorist nations but are all secretly controlled by him alone. His goal is supposedly to get revenge on foreigners for being burned alive in his home town, but deep down he just wants everyone to suffer.

Compare with DespotismJustifiesTheMeans, which depicts the dystopia as a mere side effect, not as an end in itself. The type of villain pursuing Dystopia Justifies The Means will not be satisfied just with obtaining ultimate power; they will desire to use that power towards a particularly vile end - to remake the world into a place of suffering for its own sake. Compare also with ToCreateAPlaygroundOfEvil - this trope to that is what LawfulEvil is to ChaoticEvil.
