* The Crippled God from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is slowly poisoning Burn in ''Literature/MemoriesOfIce'', who is responsible for reality ''existing''. Whether he genuinely wants her dead or is hoping that someone will free him in order to prevent this isn't known for most of the series. [[spoiler:It's the latter]]. He also tends to have his fingers in all major conflicts on the planet to cause as much havoc as he possibly can.

* ''Literature/TheRadiantDawn'' has Tyadrig, and his Dragons Aaron and Stacie Murphy by proxy. They seek to eliminate humanity because "the human sentience interferes with summoning rituals of the caliber required to summon Tyadrig to Earth".

* The first ''JakAndDaxter'' game gave us Gol and Maia, who wanted to unleash [[PsychoSerum Dark]] [[GreenRocks Eco]] upon the world. The third game's BigBad also fits this trope, teaming up with [[EldritchAbomination the Dark Makers]] to wipe out the ''universe''.

* ''VideoGame/ForeverHome'' has [[BigBad Barclyss]] and [[TheDragon Kail]], who want to end all life on the planet for different reasons. Barclyss wants omnicide because he tried and failed to see any value in living while Kail want to have the planet to himself, [[FlatCharacter for no given reason at all.]] Their plan to accomplish this is to use a spacecraft to launch explosive Cosmite shards at the planet's surface, causing the fantasy equivalent of nuclear winter.

The logical extreme of the less destructive FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence, KillAllHumans, and AbsoluteXenophobe. Compare PlanetEater, PlanetLooters and HordeOfAlienLocusts, whose world-destroying is more of a side-effect of their own desire to stay alive. Fighting against this villain (or scores of them) means EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce to destroy everything. The GenericDoomsdayVillain is this without any good reason for destroying everything, not even [[ForTheEvulz sadism]]. These types often start by destroying their own particular people/clan/culture/race first, which is GenocideFromTheInside.

* ''ComicBook/XMen92'': OriginalGeneration villain Xodus the Forgotten combines this trope with FinalSolution, as he is a FantasticRacist Celestial who traveled from world to world exterminating any and all {{Mutant}} populations until his Celestial brethren made him a SealedEvilInACan. Predictably, the seal is broken and he heads to Earth to pick right back up where he left off.

Victory quote of '''Shinnok''', ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX''



* [[GodOfEvil Shinnok]] in ''MortalKombat'' intends to become TheOmnipotent by consuming all energies in the MultiVerse including the life forces of all living things. Except [[EvilSorceror Quan-Chi]], [[YouWillBeSpared who will be spared]] as a "reward" for serving Shinnok. In TheBadGuyWins endings, Quan-Chi reveals that he has [[{{Outgambitted}} outplayed]] Shinnok and manages to steal his power- and uses it to become one of these ''himself'', except this time he simply elects to kill ForTheEvulz.
** Villains like [[EvilOverlord Shao Kahn]] and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Onaga]] are out not to destroy the realms but [[MultiversalConqueror to conquer them]] and rule them as tyrants forever - their favored tactic is to merge the other realms with Outworld, the realm they rule ([[EvilVersusEvil after they get rid of each other]]). However, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception'' reveals that they and other villains are the {{Unwitting Pawn}}s of The One Being, the sentient entity that in ancient times tried to eat the Elder Gods before they defeated it and turned it into the realms (The Heavens and the Netherealm excepted). Essentially, the One Being is trying to get them to resurrect itself by merging the realms and likely end all life in said realms in the process--if Onaga had been playable, his ending would have seen him ''become'' the One Being. This is probably an AbortedArc though, as subsequent games never mentioned the One Being again.

** [[ChaoticNeutral Scorpion]], of all people, briefly became one of these in ''MortalKombatArmageddon'' to [[RevengeBeforeReason get revenge]] on the Elder Gods in a RageAgainstTheHeavens scheme after they fulfilled a promise to bring his dead clan back to life...and brought them back [[CameBackWrong as undead zombies.]] The plot of that game was that there were too many powerful fighters running around and the gods had decided to pit them against each other in a tournament with ultimate power as the prize, because otherwise the fighters would unintentionally destroy everything with their fighting. Scorpion tried to derail the plan by killing TheChosenOne, the guy who was ''supposed'' to get the power to prevent it landing in the hands of one of the villains [[spoiler: which the next game reveals happened anyway- [[OhCrap Shao Kahn was the winner]]]], simply because he was pissed at them. He wanted to destroy all the realms to spite the Elder Gods, and if he could, kill them too in the process.

In ''FanFic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', the story begins when Cyrus, the head of Team Galactic, is revealed to have been taken outside of time, allowing him to gain the power to warp reality and eventually unmake existence; aside from Cyrus, the only depicted survivors of this attack are Arceus, the Pokémon equivalent of God, and Ash Ketchum, who was rescued by Arceus at the last minute and sent back in time to a reset history to hopefully stop Cyrus gaining that power again.
