* Hades Izanami from ''Franchise/BlazBlue'' seeks to turn all of reality into inert [[{{Mana}} seithr]]. Why? Because she is Death, that's why... ''[[VideoGame/BlazBlueCentralFiction Central Fiction]]'' reveals that [[TomatoInTheMirror she's actually a Drive existence]], an incarnation of another entity's soul's power. To be more specific, she's the Drive existence of [[PowersThatBe The Origin]], the user of the [[DeusEstMachina Master Unit: Amaterasu]], being its SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum over the setting's CrapsackWorld. This [[NavelGazing leads her to question]] if she's [[BecomeARealBoy an individual with a free will of her own and the option to be something other than Death]], concluding that the fact that she can even question her own existence means that she ''does'' have a choice. But it also leads her to the realization that ''she has no desire'' to be anything but Death, ultimately leading her to outright reject the option to develop into a more complex villain archetype.

* The modern shooter genre has been accused of producing these frequently (usually in the form of Russia), but Solomon of ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'' probably takes the cake out of all of them. While [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty Zakahaev and Makarov]] had the less-than-original motivation of restoring Russia's status as a superpower, Solomon wants to nuke Paris and New York and start World War III because... ummm... he's evil?

* 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 other 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 universally considered the lamest badguy in the series]]), or that they happened to be sandwiched between the much more memorable and interesting [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOpsII Raul Menendez]] and [[VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare Jonathan Irons]].
** The Settlement Defense Front from ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyInfiniteWarfare'' have since arisen to fill in that void. While they lack the [[UnfortunateImplications unpleasant racist undertones]] of the Federation, the SDF takes the same tendency for [[ForTheEvulz being murderous dicks for the sake of being murderous dicks]] [[UpToEleven to extreme, almost comical lengths.]] Literally ALL they ever talk about, from [[BigBad Admiral Kotch]] to the [[{{Mooks}} common footsoldier]] is how much they want to destroy Earth, and how much they want to murder innocent Earthborn bystanders. Even the textblurbs that pop up when you die go out of their way to remind you just how pointlessly, cartoonishly evil the SDF is to the point that they [[CrossesTheLineTwice feel more like a parody of the Cobra-esque bad guys you'd see in an old Saturday morning cartoon.]]

** Exclusive to the Japanese version is Demon from ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02'', who comes into the plot with no explanation, and is so powerful that the heroes can only seal him away. He has absolutely no personality, and his contribution to the plot is only as an "obstacle." [[CutandPasteTranslation For all its faults]], the dub vastly improved on him, thanks to a [[HamAndCheese delightfully hammy performance]] by Creator/BobPapenbrook.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'': In the Birth of Evil Part 1 we see a gigantic black mass that Odin, Ra, and Rama fought millions of years ago. It is nothing but a mindless force of destruction with no real intelligence, just an organism with the intent to consume everything in its path. Ironically, the Emperor's attempt to destroy said evil is what gave it intelligence and a name: [[spoiler: Aku]].

* ''VideoGame/MarioPlusRabbidsKingdomBattle'' has [[spoiler: the Megabug. A sentient virus created as a result of a dimensional rift created when [[VideoGame/RavingRabbids the Rabbids']] time travelling washing machine teleported to the Mushroom Kingdom, the Megabug appears to desire nothing more than to destroy both universes, absorbing the power of the Rabbids the heroes defeat to do so. [[TheVoiceless It does not speak]], nor does it clearly display any form of sapience, resulting in a terrifying creature with no clear motives]]. [[{{Fanon}} Despite this, some fans]] have interpreted [[spoiler:it as having orchestrated an XanatosGambit where the heroes would have to fight its brainwashed Rabbids, thereby powering it up (since it no longer has to use its power to keep the Rabbids brainwashed) and allowing it to come closer to its goal of [[OmnicidalManiac eliminating both worlds.]]]]
