* In ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'', the Ganglion [[spoiler:tried to destroy humanity due to being descended from the Samaarians. This backfired ''before the genocide had even started'' as Elma had given humanity faster than light travel and warned them about the Ganglion, and although the Ganglion destroy Earth, Luxxaar is killed by Lao and the Ganglion is, for the most part, destroyed by BLADE.]]

* Bafflingly {{averted|trope}} twice in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}''. {{Evil Overlord}}s Orochimaru and Pain cement their statuses as village leaders by rolling in and completely demolishing the leaders, family, and government of their respective countries -- implied in Orochimaru's case, outright stated in Pain's. This works out very well for them, mostly because they actually [[MoralEventHorizon succeeded in subverting]] InfantImmortality. Both do end up meeting their ends, but for reasons unrelated to their murderous ascension to power.
** It helps that Salamander Hanzo was a complete monster himself, so the Rain Country sees Pain as a hero, and they know nothing of the Akatsuki or the abduction of Jinchuriki and fatal extraction of their Biju that Pain is partaking in, or of what he plans to use them for. As for Orochimaru, as stated above, there isn't much information about the Rice Pattie land's politics, and he probably started the Sound Village.
** Also deliberately invoked by [[spoiler:Itachi with the Uchiha Massacre. He leaves Sasuke alive because he ''wants'' to die by his hand.]] It still falls through, though; [[spoiler:by this time, Sasuke has abandoned the Leaf Village, and afterward, he decides to actively destroy it.]]
** Danzo was concerned about this himself. [[spoiler:This is why he felt that, during the Uchiha massacre, it was necessary to even kill off ''everyone'', even children. Considering that the one survivor now wants to destroy the village, and eventually killed Danzo himself, he may have had a point. Then again, Danzo's actions in the name of Konoha have oftentimes created even worse problems, so this probably came from experience.]]

* Near the series finale of ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', the Cardassians have at that point lost all standing with the Dominion and are not much more than unwilling vassals. This leads elements of the [[LaResistance the civilian population]] to subvert the Dominion war effort through acts of sabotage. As a result of one particular incident which nearly cost them a battle, the Female Changeling orders a major Cardassian city to be wiped out by orbital bombardment as an example, and announces that the Dominion will destroy one city for every act of sabotage committed. After hearing this, however, the entire Cardassian fleet does an abrupt HeelFaceTurn in favor of TheFederation instead, as well as getting many Cardassian soldiers on-planet to defect. This in turn prompts the Dominion to to start slaughtering the Cardassians en masse, but since her subordinate proceeds to send out most of their troops stationed at the base to do so, this leaves their installation critically under-guarded when Damar and his crew attack Dominion Headquarters.

About half of the force that storms it had been ''guarding'' it up to that point.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory, the Atmorans, a [[BarbarianHero barbarian]] {{Precursor}} race of the [[HornyVikings Nords]], began migrating to Tamriel from the now-lost [[GrimUpNorth continent of Atmora]], landing and settling in modern day Skyrim. The [[OurElvesAreBetter Falmer (Snow Elves)]], who inhabited Skyrim, grew concerned when they started to become outnumbered by the Atmorans. While there are conflicting details regarding exactly what happened that night, the Falmer would attack and massacre the Atmoran city of Saarthal. Unfortunately, [[FounderOfTheKingdom Ysgramor]] and his sons survived. They returned to Atmora and raised an army of 500 of Atmora's greatest warriors. They returned to Skyrim and led a [[ThePurge Purge]] on the Falmer, slaughtering the majority of their population. Save for a small population at a very remote monastery, the surviving Falmer were forced to turn to their [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] cousins for shelter. The Dwemer agreed to take them in, but only if the Falmer agreed to consume poisonous mushrooms to permanently blind them and essentially become EnslavedElves to the Dwemer. Following the [[RiddleForTheAges disappearance of the Dwemer]], the surviving modern Falmer are now barely sapient [[TheMorlocks Morlock]]-like creatures who continue to inhabit the Dwemer's abandoned ruins.

* ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'': The Evronians are feared across the galaxy for their destruction and enslavement of many different species. This backfired on them when they destroyed the planet Xerba, where a scientist had performed experiments on herself so she could [[ThePowerOfTheSun acquire the power of a star]]. So to their terror the Evronians were suddenly confronted with a virtually instoppable superbeing gunning after them to avenge her people.

* Parodied in ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'' when Master Pain kills TheChosenOne's entire family before attempting to kill him. However, even as an infant The Chosen One is too strong to take on in a straight fight so Master Pain just burns the house down. The Chosen One, of course, survives and grows into adulthood and eventually defeats Master Pa-, Betty.

*In the reddit series Chrysalis, the Xunvir Republic completely wipes out all life on Earth [[spoiler: because it was more profitable than enslaving humanity]]. Every Human is killed, but they left behind a single sentient Von Neumann machine to return the favor.
