** Xellos in :''Slayers: NEXT'' takes the side of Evil against the rogue Dark Lord who wants to destroy the world. The end-of-the-world fails and Xellos was entangled in this all. Complete with [[spoiler:him appearing healthy and smiling]] right after destruction of the strongest Dark Lord who tried to bring it all down. It seems that he and his boss are more interested in power struggles between their kin than in serious apocalyptic activity. And then there's..."[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNLazPR48Ww My Evil Plan to Save the World]]" AMV with Xellos.

--->'''Dark Bowser''': Still here? Has the dark power not crushed your puny hopes? Soon this kingdom will vanish along with all who dwell within. And you, too, will sleep eternally in the dark power's embrace.

** [[spoiler:Completely averted in SonicForces, as Eggman's plan changes from creating an empire to outright melting the planet by ''dropping the sun on it''.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the episode "Common Interest", Jémérie finds out the super computer is failing, but as a middle school student, he has no hopes of obtaining a new plutonium core for the computer. Of course, XANA also doesn't want to die, so he steals one for him to install (along with a radiation suit apparently). Not being GenreBlind, Jémérie knows the moment he installs the core, [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness XANA is going to try and kill him once this is over]], and calls for backup during one of the power outages.

** In ''Film/ResidentEvilTheFinalChapter'', [[spoiler: it's revealed that Wesker was actually manipulating Alice into aiding the Umbrella Corporation's plans to wipe out all humans not actually apart of Umbrella, who would then inherit the Earth. The [[AIIsACrapshoot Red Queen]], who turns out to have been GoodAllAlong (in a very much GoodIsNotNice way), helps Alice save the world.]]



* In "Planet Jackers", an episode of ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', another race of aliens steals the earth in a DysonSphere intending to use it like firewood to keep their sun alive. Zim immediately decides he has to stop them since if they do this, ''he'' can't be the one to destroy the earth.



* 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

Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' has [[spoiler: the conflict between [[MentorMascot Kyubey]] (Evil) and [[EldritchAbomination the witches]] (Oblivion). Unlike most examples, however, itís the ''{{Omnicidal Maniac}}s'' who are portrayed sympathetically, since [[ManBehindTheMan Kyubey is the one who]] [[DealWithTheDevil tricked them into becoming]] {{Magical Girl}}s and later [[WasOnceAMan witches]], [[AMillionIsAStatistic getting millions of innocent people killed in the process and not giving a crap,]] all in the name of [[WellIntentionedExtremist saving the universe from heat death]]. The witches, by contrast, want to ''[[DarkMessiah save]]'' humanity from the Incubatorsí rule, albeit [[MercyKill in thier own twisted way]] by [[DrivenToSuicide driving them to suicide]].]] Itís rather ironic that [[spoiler: the villains trying to ''destroy'' the world/universe are widely considered [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds more sympathetic]], while the one trying to ''[[SaveTheWorld save]]'' it is considered a [[EvilerThanThou greater evil]], a [[TheSociopath heartless bastard]], and [[HateSink the most hated character in the series]]]].

* 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.]]

He learns the hard way that EvilIsNotAToy when the Shredder [[CameBackWrong comes back wrong]] as Kavaxas' zombie slave and destroys the [[RestrainingBolt talisman]] Tiger Claw was using to control him, giving Kavaxas free reign to begin TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. This is the ''last thing'' Tiger Claw wants, and he unhesitatingly helps the Turtles put a stop to it.

* In the ''Literature/HIVESeries'', we have the Global League of Villainous Enterprises(G.L.O.V.E.), which is a band of supervillains who keep each other in check, making sure that there's still a world for them to rule over. The [[AcademyOfEvil H.I.V.E.]] itself teaches the Alphas not to commit senseless acts of violence, a major theme of their lessons being "we are not common criminals."

* 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.''
** Likewise, it justifies ThouShaltNotKill on both sides of the equation; the more powerful and troublesome a hero is for the villains, the more needed he tends to be against the giant monsters. One character describes the normal interactions between heroes and villains as "like a big game of cops and robbers."
** [[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.]]
