* Hades Izanami from ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' is often considered one due to her lack of any real motivation other than "kill everyone because she's a GodOfEvil", and is somewhat of a ReplacementScrappy for [[OmnicidalManiac Hazama/Terumi]] and [[AGodAmI Relius]]. Not to mention that in the [[VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction sequel]] she spends Act 1 of the [[EpisodicGame three-part Arcade]] [[PutOnABus in the backstage without any further development]], leaving her Dragon, Phantom/Nine, to do most of the fighting and guess what, [[DragonWithAnAgenda the first part turns out to be Nine's plan which can be considered deeper than her generic doomsday.]] [[PromotedToPlayable This has started to change with the release of Act 2]], though time will tell if she will be fleshed out in motivation [[NightmareFuel as much as fighting ability]].

** [[spoiler:Played with later, when it's heavily implied (though not outright stated) by Tattletale and Scion that Eidolon inadvertently created them out of a need for "worthy opponents." They exist for the same reason in-universe that many of the examples on this page exist out-of-universe: simply to pose a powerful challenge to the hero.]]

* The Federation of The Americas from ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts'' are often accused of being this. Throughout the entirety of the campaign, they appear to have no overall goal over than destroying the US and murdering American civilians seemingly [[ObviouslyEvil just to remind the players that they're the bad guys.]] Not helped by the fact that the only named character on their side who has more than two lines is the ''very'' American [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Gabriel Rorke]], ([[TheScrappy already universially considered the lamest badguy in the series]]) or that they happened to be sandwiched between the much more memorable and interesting [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOpsII Raul]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist Menendez]] and [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare Johnathan]] [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Irons.]]

* Almost all the villains in ''WebComic/AxeCop'' [[ShapedLikeItself are evil and do evil things because they're bad guys]], so just about any one of the powerful villains bent on TakingOverTheWorld or whatever is automatically a Generic Doosmday Villain.



* The Snarl from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. Not a major player in the story, but ready to obliterate everything if it ever gets loose. Though we've only heard about the Snarl in two flashbacks told by different characters with an agenda that contradict each other, and one of the main characters has admitted he probably doesn't know as much as he should about this alleged threat to the world.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'': Averted with the Skull Kid who is wearing the titular mask for most of the story, but played straight by [[spoiler:the mask itself, which is revealed to be sentient near the end of the game. But then again, the mysterious nature of the mask, it's vague references to good and evil, the fact that it for some reason surrounds itself with children that look like the Happy Mask Salesman, and it's connection to the Stone Tower Temple means it may be less generic than it seems at first glance.]]
