* Reverend Darren England, of the WhateleyUniverse. He's fought demons and aliens for decades, protecting the people of earth. Now he's trying to destroy a couple more inhuman things. They just happen to be some of the ''heroes''.

* 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.

* Judicator Aldaris in ''{{StarCraft}}''. He is willing to engage in a [[CivilWarcraft civil war]] ''while his home planet is being invaded by the nigh-unstoppable Zerg'' just because he doesn't like the people that the player and Tassadar are consorting with. Naturally, this blows up in his face and he accepts the truth. What makes it kinda tragic is that the ''next'' time Aldaris started to become an ObstructiveZealot, he was 100% correct. He could see that Kerrigan had gained some influence over the Matriarch, but nobody would listen to him (except his loyal core of off-screen supporters). And then Kerrigan shows up to kill him off before [[PoorCommunicationKills he could explain his reasoning]] for starting another civil conflict.

* Qing-jao (sp?) of [[EndersGame Xenocide]]. She's seen as a brilliant individual who's easily the pinnacle of everything her home world of Path is about. Naturally, she's the one put in charge of a formal investigation into Demosthenes' identity, and actually winds up learning a great deal. But then it's revealed that [[spoiler:the "godspoken" of her home world that ultimately guide everything are in fact genetically altered by humanity's governing body to act as hyperintelligent servants to fight against Demosthenes and anyone else that would dare to undermine them so thoroughly. The gods talking to them and their pathological obsessions to engage in demanding, menial activities are actually the results of genetically enforced OCD that keep them under control and unable to resist the call of their superiors.]] When Qing-jao is confronted with the truth, she defies it constantly, and even when [[spoiler:it's cured in the end]], she still insists the "gods" have a plan for her, and refuses to listen to any reason except her own.

* 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]].
