* Miko Miyazaki from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick,'' more so over time.

* Miko Miyazaki from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick,'' more so over time.who believes that the Twelve Gods have a "special mission" for her, and absolutely, vehemently refuses to listen to anyone or anything that doesn't fit her view of how things are, or even acknowledges that she may, in fact, be wrong. Not even when Miko is stripped of her power by the Twelve Gods themselves following [[spoiler:her murder of Lord Shojo out of paranoia]].

* Dale from ''KingOfTheHill'' is a humourous example.

* The Masters (formerly The Bloodguard) in ''[[ChroniclesOfThomasCovenant The Last Chronicles of Thomas Covenant]]'' are an entire race of Obstructive Zealots. They've set themselves up as the rulers of The Land - denying the people of The Land proper knowledge of Earthpower for starters - all for the purposes of being the only ones capable of defeating Lord Foul. Though it's obvious to anyone not one of The Masters that they don't have the numbers to wage war against Foul, let alone win.

Added DiffLines:

* Grand Maestro Mohs in ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' wants to start a war because the Score says so. After all, it predicts prosperity for his country if it comes to pass, so why not do it? He constantly gets in the way of the party members, and even goes behind the back of his boss, Fon Master Ion, just to try and make it happen.

to:

* In ''[[VideoGame/MassEffect1 Mass Effect]]'', Saren fit this trope, though his intentions were fairly pragmatic: By helping the Reapers take over the galaxy, he hoped to show that organic life could be useful and would spare some of them. Of course, he was [[MoreThanMindControl indoctrinated]] and was going to justify doing exactly what they wanted him to one way or the other.
** In ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', The Illusive Man falls into this same trap, first thinking that humanity could stop the Reapers without the help or interference of the aliens, and later that he could control the Reapers himself (as with Saren, [[MoreThanMindControl the opposite was true]].) [[ExpandedUniverse The comics]] imply that he had been under the Reapers' influence for most of his life.

** Also from CiaphasCain, Sisters of Battle. Sure, they wear PowerArmor that allows them to withstand hits that'd kill a Guardsman three times over, and their unshakeable faith means they won't fall back in panic, but they're a nightmare to superior officers since they just keep moving forwards and eventually getting killed, leaving a great big hole in the line. Cain has to wise them up to this by reminding them that as glorious as it is to die for the Emperor, He won't appreciate it if it also means a temple full of civilians got slaughtered because the Sisters were too dead to protect them.
