** 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.

* The two {{Greater Scope Villain}}s major villain groups in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' and ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the Burning Legion and the Void Lords. 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.]]

* Similarly, in the ''TabletopGame/{{Old World of Darkness}}'s'' ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'', the Technocracy distrusts the Traditions but recognizes that the Nephandi are far worse.

* 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.
