** A variation occurs in the ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' setting, where this Trope applies to ''every single'' Darklord. While their pasts, motives, [[StartOfDarkness how they began to fall into evil]] and [[MoralEventHorizon actions that condemned them]] tend to vary, there is one common threat, they ''all do not see their actions as wrong''. If a mortal ever has the need to struggle with morality issues over his acts, he cannot become a Darklord.

* Every major villian save [[spoiler: Togane]] from Anime/PsychoPass could be this on varying levels. Makishima the haziest example seems to think that he is in the end saving mankind, Kirito truely believes that he is helping everyone and that everyone he murders deserves it, and [[spoiler: the sybil system]] believes that their [[spoiler:system]] is the best way mankind has ever lived and that are their judgments are correct and justified.

* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'': Stoick the Vast isn't evil by any means (in fact, he is quite TheGoodKing) but his actions still fall under this. He ''believes'' he's doing the right thing by disowning his son and attacking every dragon in sight. But it's his bad temper and [[FantasticRacism staunch]] [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy traditionalism]] that almost gets his tribe slaughtered in the film's climax. (Until they're saved by his son- [[TheBeastmaster Hiccup]]- and a pack of dragons.)

** The ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Silicon Avatar" is devoted to this trope. Picard suggests it might apply to the Crystalline Entity, an incredibly powerful being that devours all organic life on planets, sentient or otherwise, right down to the bacteria. (Data's homeworld was one victim.) Picard uses filter-feeding whales preying on krill as a possible comparison. Unfortunately, the Entity is destroyed by the mother of a victim too obsessed with revenge right before communication is successfully established, so whether the Entity was truly malicious or not is left unanswered.

* Lemy Abelard from the Franchise/EvilliousChronicles song "Five the Pierrot" is implied to be this--he was taught by "Ms. Santa" that his job was to punish "bad children" (ie, he kills prostitutes ala "Jack the Ripper"). It's implied that she groomed him to be an assassin and that he's very delusional about what exactly he does.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'': Pharaoh Seti I is a stern father and ruler, though he is shown to genuinely love his wife and sons -- being harsh towards Ramses in order to prepare him for the burden of ruling -- and care deeply about the future of his empire. However, he sees nothing wrong with using the Hebrew people as slave labor or with having ordered the massacre of newborn Hebrew children at the beginning of the film, remarking to Moses -- who had narrowly escaped being a victim of that massacre -- that they were just slaves.

* Most killers from ''Franchise/CSI'' can be this. One episode had a doctor killing her sister who worked as a circus freak to protect her daughter (who idolize her aunt) from "the monsters around the world". Catherine agrees with her, the daughter is safe from a monster, her mother.

* Courtney in the fifth season ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' is initially in the Heroic Hamsters but is transferred to the Villainous Vultures in the third episode. She protests and question why she is transferred, unaware that throughout the three episodes she is pretty much a villain; her overall bossiness, planning to eliminate Zoey behind her back and using an injured Sam as a human shield. In fact, throughout the series, Courtney is the only antagonists (or antagonistic character like Duncan and Eva) who is oblivious that she is a jerk towards everyone and still thinks everyone loves her.

* Fart from ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' was a gaseous alien that Morty saved from prison who, at the end of the episode, opens up to Morty that [[spoiler:he plans on regrouping with his species to destroy all carbon-based lifeforms, which he sees as inferior, starting with Earth]]. [[AffablyEvil He tells Morty this without any malice or sugarcoating]], [[BlueAndOrangeMorality genuinely believing that Morty sees him eye-to-eye due to Morty's selfishness and hopes he understands]]. He becomes dumbfounded and horrified when [[spoiler:Morty tearfully shoots him to death]].

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'': Victarion Greyjoy is by no means a malicious man and is certainly no moustache-twirling villain. In many ways, he's actually quite admirable and straightforward. However, he wholeheartedly believes in the [[ARealManIsAKiller warped]] values of [[HornyVikings the culture he was raised in]], and is too [[DumbMuscle lacking in imagination, intelligence, and self-awareness]] to question them.
