* Non from ''{{Series/Supergirl|2015}}'' is this as a result of RealLifeWritesThePlot. The original villain Astra had to be written out due to the actress's Broadway commitments. Non was merely Astra's [[TheDragon Dragon]] and [[DoctorGirlfriend Doctor Husband]] and picked up the reins from her. While Astra had clear motives--namely revenge against her sister--it's never said why Non wants to activate [[MindControl Myriad]].

** [[EvilOverlord Pariah Dark]], being an obscenely powerful ghost out for world domination, but without a terribly interesting personality. However, the MadeForTVMovie he appeared in featured major roles from a lot of the more interesting RoguesGallery members (such as [[ArchEnemy Vlad]], [[TheHunter Valerie]], [[MagicKnight Fright Knight]], and [[EgomaniacHunter Skulker]]), so it all evened out.

* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}'' is [[spoiler:Pokey Minch, now an emaciated batshit crazy ManChild who could be anywhere from 10,000 to 100,000 years old due to his abuse of the Phase Distorter]]. Even ''he'' doesn't really know why he wants to destroy the world, but it seems to sway all over the place between loneliness, jealousy, boredom, and insanity.

* Gamedeus from ''Series/KamenRiderExAid'' is a justified example: he's the FinalBoss of "[[TheMostDangerousVideoGame Kamen Rider Chronicle]]" and once he spawns, begins attacking and causing a pandemic...and that's about it. Unlike the other Bugsters, he has no real motivation and his personality consists of 'generic FinalBoss banter' and 'recycle sound clips from the previous Bugsters while using their powers'...because that's ''exactly'' how he's programmed. He was created to be the FinalBoss and programmed to behave exactly as he does. Also, unlike his fellows both lacks any pre-existing character to get a personality from and has only existed for a very brief period of time, making him less a character and more a program being run. [[spoiler: And then he just gets killed and made into a power-up for an existing villain.]]

* Finn accuses [[OmnicidalManiac The Lich]] of being this in the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' episode "Whispers". The Lich, being about a step removed from being the AnthropomorphicPersonification of mass destruction, extinction, and genocide, [[spoiler:who is probably a servant of a GodOfEvil]], takes it as a compliment.
-->'''Finn:''' You're so evil [[BoringInsult it's boring]]. You're basic, man.\\
'''The Lich:''' Yes. While the mortal world doubts and questions, I know exactly what I am. I am the ceaseless wheel. The last scholar of Golb. I am your doom.

** Those villains that show up in the sequels are no better, following the ''same'' strategy of sending out a MonsterOfTheWeek so they can conquer the world for no real reason other than they want to. This is due to the StrictlyFormula writing style of author Dakari King Mykan, who has said in author's notes that he hates creating complex villains and storylines.
