* In the beginning of the WoodyWoodpecker short ''Ration Bored'', Woody himself flat out admits that he is a necessary evil. Given the context under which he said that, he could have meant it as a joke.

* She-Beast of the WhateleyUniverse describes the international supervillain Dr. Diabolik like this, including talking about the thousands of people who have died in his efforts to advance the human race. She may be giving him more credit than he deserves though, since she is his daughter.

* In order to save the world, [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater The Joy]] had to be perceived as a traitor and die by Naked Snake's hands. Needless to say, this caused some nasty emotional trauma to him.

* [[spoiler:Trias the Betrayer]] from ''PlanescapeTorment'' is a FallenAngel who betrayed his kin and made a [[DealWithTheDevil compact with the lower planes]]. He actively works towards shifting the balance of the planes towards evil in return for the command over an army of devils should he succeed. [[spoiler:Trias]] plans to use this army to attack the gates of heaven themselves. While he's expecting both this army and himself to be defeated, his hope is that such an act would be enough to rouse the celestials of the upper planes to take a more hands-on approach in the war against evil instead of doing what he saw as being AchillesInHisTent while evil was allowed to run rampant.

** Speaking of the {{Nasuverse}}, we have Emiya Kiritsugu, from LightNovel/FateZero and VisualNovel/FateStayNight, who is more than willing to shoulder all the evils in the world in order to save everyone. [[spoiler: He did shoulder all the evils in the world, but didn't completely save people from them.]]

* Malcolm Merlyn from The CW's ''{{Series/Arrow}}'' orchestrated The Undertaking, an endeavor shared between him and several of his colleagues, during the first season. Its purpose? To obliterate the crime-infested area of Starling City known as the Glades. His line of reasoning for this is to avenge his late wife Rebecca, who was murdered by a Glades resident. He also firmly believed that the city could somehow be reformed through this one act of [[PayEvilUntoEvil eliminating majority of, if not the entirety of the criminal element]]. And like most other examples on this page, [[WellIntentionedExtremist he is genuine in his concern for the city]].
