* The two {{Greater Scope Villain}}s in ''VideoGames/Warcraft'' and ''VideoGames/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.

* In ''TabletopGame/SirenTheDrowning'', this is the reason Sirens from the [[StrawNihilist Current of Acheron]] are hated not only by the Celestial Currents, but also by their peers from the other Abyssal Currents: their goal is to ''fasten'' [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the Deluge]] because [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum they honestly think the world is crappy enough that it deserves to be destroyed]]. Aside from nobody beside them being insane enough to want this, the other Abyssal Currents, as evil as they are, still ''need'' the world saved for their own agenda.

* In Creator/JackChalker's ''Literature/DemonsOfTheDancingGods'', there's a sorcerer plotting to bring about the end of the world. Every other evil sorcerer in the world is against him, once they find out, because they've all done a DealWithTheDevil to enhance their power, and consequently want to postpone Judgement Day as long as possible.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' [[spoiler: Jon Snow]] persuades the Night's Watch make a ''very'' uneasy alliance with [[spoiler: wildlings, giants, King Stannis and Melisandre the Red Priestess/Sorceress]] in order to prevent the Others from bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Some characters are sufficiently open-minded about the GreyAndGrayMorality of their world to recognize that their allies are not necessarily "evil", but the less even-handed ones who nonetheless accept the alliance do so because of this trope.

** 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 received the screentime he was promised in his contract.

* [[MagnificentBastard Xanatos]] sometimes takes the "evil" side against [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Demona]] standing in for "oblivion" in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. Now, Demona doesn't want to destroy ''everything'', but she ''does'' want to wipe out the human race (which as far as those of us who belong to the human race are concerned amounts more-or-less to the same thing), something the largely amoral Xanatos's sense of self-interest and self-preservation is far too strong to allow[[note]] Xanatos wants money, power, and immortality. As of the show proper, he has the first two and is busy using them to try and get the third. The end of the world- or of humanity- would put an obvious crimp in his plans[[/note]]. To give some specific examples, he pulls a straight up EnemyMine with the clan in "City of Stone", and though he doesn't show up in ''[[GrandFinale Hunter's Moon]]'' until the battle is already won, he's certainly grateful enough that humanity is saved to provide a very timely airlift out of trouble.

* ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'': Eggman, who still wants to conquer the world and create the Eggman Empire, faces off against Black Doom, who [[spoiler: wants to turn all of humanity into a food ranch.]] Depending on your choices, Shadow himself can qualify siding against either Eggman or Black Doom.

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'': Devils are... well, devils, but even THEY won't take a soul that has been corrupted by the all-consuming devourer Mr. Eaten, a being whose agenda is "give me everything so that I may give you ''nothing''". If they catch you, they will strip you of all your belongings so that your meaningless self-sacrifice won't give the enemy enough new material to corrupt other souls with.

* This regularly happens in ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', where giant {{Kaiju}} with ruinous superpowers known as the Endbringers regularly emerge from the ocean, the center of the earth, and the upper atmosphere, select a target (usually heavily populated or otherwise vital) and proceed to do their absolute best to wipe it off the face of the planet. It's common, codified practice for superheroes and supervillains to join forces against them, because the Endbringers are doing a ''very'' good job of slowly wiping out humanity and the majority of supervillains simply ''aren't that evil.''n
