* The Shee in the ''{{Creatures}}'' series created the Norns, fuzzy adorable little critters with rudimentary intelligence that they claimed to love as pets. But when they decided it was time to move on to a bigger, [[WorldShapes round]] world, they left most of the creatures they had created to die on their home planet.

* The Great Beings of ''{{Bionicle}}'' were scientist-rulers on their planet, until they created the Element Lords to take over the "ruling" part so they could focus on the "[[ForScience science]]". This is perhaps the most damning display of negligence, creating proxies so that they can safely afford to neglect their subjects. (Though it could be argued that they did act responsibly in making sure there ''were'' proper replacements.) While things were all right for a while, {{Unobtainium}} was discovered and the Element Lords led their subjects in waging a NoBloodForPhlebotinum war over it, one that only ended when said Unobtainium split the planet into pieces. The Great Beings tried nonviolent solutions, all of which failed. The eventually resorted to creating baterra robots, a last-ditch doomsday weapon programmed to end the war by killing all armed combatants. However, they were released too late to prevent the disaster, and later [[OverrideCommand overrode their shutdown commands]].

* The Eloh, the ancient precursors of ''TabulaRasa'', created a [[MagicFromTechnology superscience capable of manipulating energy and matter by acts of will]]. They then went through interstellar space handing this stuff out randomly. When this [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters didn't end well]] - surprise, surprise - they annihilated the entire military of the first race to rise against them, the Thrax, firmly cementing xenophobia. Then a small faction called the Neph went and enslaved the Thrax and went on a war against the rest of the universe to make sure no one would ever be their equals again, starting with the mainstream Eloh. Rather than actually fighting back or enlisting (or even warning) the sentient races across the universe, the Eloh just tossed various pieces of AppliedPhlebotinum on random populated and unpopulated worlds. At least the Sages of the ''Zelda'' series bothered to seal away the [[SealedEvilInACan evil in a can]].
* Potentially the player in ''{{Spore}}''. One of the achievements requires them to uplift a certain number of creatures. The easiest way to do this is to just randomly drop monoliths on every planet encountered without sentient life and then forget about it.

* If it pleases the court, the plaintiff will now present exhibit A from the ''Literature/{{Illuminatus}}'', which documents the decision by Swift Kick, Inc, a notoriously shoddy [[GenesisEffect planetary construction firm]], to shave off costs by making life on Earth mortal, including all possible sentient life forms arising on the planet.

* In Creator/TanithLee's ''Literature/TalesFromTheFlatEarth'', the Gods created the universe, got bored with it, and now do nothing but stand around contemplating their own greatness. They've intervened in the world approximately three times in all of history, each of which was to deliver smack-downs on anyone who dared to challenge them.

** For starters, the Time Lord President-for-Life Rassilon stands accused of multiple charges of genocide, successful deletion of entire races from the timeline, successful deletion of entire continua he judged not favorable to the Time Lords, experimentation on sentients (Time Lords included), countless charges of MindRape (including the manipulation that unhinged the Time Lord known as Koschei, making him directly responsible for every act of the madman) and one omnicide attempt. Internal info also reveals multiple purges, mounting evidence of massive racism (seeding life across the Universe to better fit the Time Lord template), and reckless experimentation on - and even more reckless disposal of - sentient weaponry. All in all, every piece of evidence paints him as a paranoid, hypocritical, psychotic individual obsessed with his own mortality and supremacy over all other forms of life.
