* In ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'' [[spoiler: Second Zero reveals that [[ReligionOfEvil Free The Soul]] released [[ThePlague Radical-6]] to stop a [[GreaterScopeVillain Religious fanatic]] from sparking a nuclear war which would've destoryed the world. Since Radical-6 would've killed about 75% of the world's population there's pretty good chance that the fanatic would be among them.]]

* PlayedStraight or [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] depending on how you interpret Zim's goals in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', Zim [[EnemyMine teams up with Dib]] to prevent Tak from destroying Earth. Zim's motivation isn't so much to prevent Earth's destruction, he just doesn't want Tak to take the glory and destroy what he wanted to conquer and or destroy himself

* ''VideoGame/Injustice2'': This is why most supervillains end up fighting against Brainiac in one way or the other. Since he is a OmnicidalManiac who harvests all planets he invades from all valuable content for his collection and destroys the rest, he represents a threat to everyone including [[FallenHero the Regime]], who promptly side with their former comrades who are still good, and Grodd's Society, a supervillain group assembled to TakeOverTheWorld. Though their case is a little complicated, since they initially assist in Brainiac's invasion in the Story Mode, when its revealed he wants to destroy Earth they disband rather than help the heroes fight him. They do end up fighting him in their own Arcade Mode just like everyone else.

** In ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'', in the season 2 finale, [[EvilVersusEvil Yami Marik/Melvin duels Yami Bakura]] much like in the original. However in the abridged version, Bakura makes it clear he's fighting to keep the series from being cancelled, which is Melvin's end goal. Bakura's reasons are that he has yet to receive the screen time he was promised in his contract.

to:

** [[spoiler:In the final stages of the story, the Endbringers themselves join the fight against the final BigBad. While it's never made clear exactly ''why'' they decide to do so, the protagonists' successful attempt to recruit them included invoking this trope, among many other arguments.]]

* In the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Becoming", Angelus is planning to perform a ritual that will bring about the end of the world. Spike sides with the heroes to stop him, and tells Buffy that under the big talk, a lot of vampires like the Earth just as it is -- millions of people running around helpless like "Happy Meals with legs", and a comparative small handful of people who hunt and kill them. Angelus is just one of the few vampires fanatical enough to actually ''do'' it, which Spike doesn't want.

* The two {{Greater Scope Villain}}s in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' and ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are the Burning Legion and the Void Lords. The Titan Sargeras went crazy from fighting the Void Lords, and decided the best thing to do was to conquer the entire universe and remake it into a demonically corrupted version of itself, to fight against the Void Lords and their Old God minions who want to destroy the universe.

Old Gods, play with this. The Titan Sargeras went crazy from Burning Legion wants to burn Azeroth, along with all worlds, while the Old Gods are fighting to break out of their prisons and rule Azeroth like they did ages ago; this has in the Void Lords, past prompted both factions to either fight or help the other faction, depending on what would serve their own goals. For example the Old Gods meddled in the Legion's invasion during the War of the Ancients, subtly helping things progress but intending to hijack the payoff at the last moment. But in the big picture, [[spoiler:the roles are reversed. The Old Gods want to be free to corrupt the titan within Azeroth, which they will use to consume all matter and decided energy in the best thing to do was to conquer the entire universe and remake turn it into a demonically corrupted version of itself, all to fight against the Void Lords and Void, as their Old God minions who want to destroy masters the universe.void lords created them to do. The Legion was founded when its master Sargeras learned of this plan, and decided that evil acts of physical destruction would be preferable to total universal oblivion.]]
