Compare with the OmnicidalManiac, the "serious" version of this trope who ''can'' wrap his head around the concept and wants to do it anyway. If this goes to the next step and the destruction is only really caused by the character's indirect actions, then the character is a DoomMagnet (though the normal version of this also applies as well). Compare FromNobodyToNightmare, when an average person wreaks havoc on purpose after a StartOfDarkness. Compare also with UnwittingInstigadorOfDoom, when someone unintentionally plays a small and/or unlikely but crucial role in some horrible development (usually this action serves as the catalyst).

** And this is after destroying Macross City ''twice'' -- once by teleporting the island it was on to the orbit of Pluto, and again by ordering a transformation of the ship while having no understanding of how the reconfiguration would affect the city.

** ''Film/AgentForHARM'': Mike gets tried for destroying worlds, and is sentenced to death - but his sentence is commuted because he's an amiable lug and instead is remitted to community service aboard the S.O.L.

* Used in Creator/LRonHubbard's final two novels, presumably because he wanted his heroes to completely wipe out the bad guys without portraying them as genocidal maniacs.
** ''Literature/BattlefieldEarth'''s hero Jonnie Goodboy Tyler wasn't ''trying'' to completely destroy the Psychlo homeworld, he just wanted to send a nuke through its PortalNetwork to at least prolong the time before the aliens could send reinforcements to their outpost on Earth. But Psychlo "breathe-gas" has a violently explosive reaction to even [[ArtisticLicensePhysics "a single isotope" of radiation,]] and the Psychlos had riddled their home planet with mining tunnels, so that single nuke caused a chain reaction that turned the planet into a radioactive sun. ''Then'' every other planet in the Psychlo Empire, because they don't have a SubspaceAnsible, blindly opened a teleporter link to the capital and got blasted too. The end result is that the (sterilized) prisoners Jonnie takes are the last Psychlos in all the universes, but don't feel bad, [[GuiltFreeExterminationWar they assure him that their race is better off dead.]]
** ''Literature/MissionEarth'''s hero Jettero Heller wasn't ''trying'' to end the Cold War in the most brutal way possible, [[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext he just wanted to use his space tugboat to tow an icy comet made from Saturn's rings to hit Earth at just the right angle to create a gyroscopic effect to stabilize its spinning core so that the magnetic north pole would stop wandering into the ocean thereby causing the ice cap to melt and the world's water level to rise dangerously high.]] Unfortunately, an enemy fighter pilot (who Heller knew was still around) chose that moment to attack Heller's tug (and Heller didn't abort his run to deal with this threat, but instead asked the enemy pilot to stop trying to kill him), so the tug's controls got damaged, sending the comet straight into the heart of the Soviet Union, annihilating western Russia and killing a hundred million people. [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing But don't feel bad, everyone can only gush about how this act of destruction only "proves there's a God after all," and how wonderful it is that the Cold War is over.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout4}}'''s DLC Automatron, the idea is played with, though the outcome is sadly played straight. [[BigBad The Mechanist]] sought to bring forward peace and stability through a robotic police force. The hope was that the robots would protect traders and caravans on the road from the various horrors of the Commonwealth Wasteland. However, the Mechanist made a [[Main/Understatement bit of a mistake]] using [[FateWorseThanDeath Robobrains]] as the field commanders of the robot forces. As it turns out, said Robobrains in question wound up becoming corrupted after 210 years of inaction. So they interpreted "protect the people" as [[KillEmAll "kill everyone we see"]]. In their minds, the Robobrains saw that [[EpicFail if everyone was dead,]] [[NiceJobBreakingItHero they were "saved"]].
