* The ''Literature/LegendsOfDune'' prequel novels establish that [[spoiler: Earth has been destroyed]], because of the [[RoboticPsychopath Titans]], human brains in warmechs, who now are intent on killing or enslaving all humans in the galaxy. Conversely, after the Titans attack human planets, the Butlerian Jihad begins and the humans order all thinking machines destroyed.

** [[spoiler: Surtur]], the original Dark Phoenix, [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity was driven insane by the power]] and became convinced that the universe was flawed, and that only they could make it better. By utterly destroying it and starting over, of course.

* While he does not typically fall under this category, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker did, in fact, reach this state during the "ComicBook/EmperorJoker" plotline in the ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' comics. In fact, considering that plot and a number of other situations it could be argued that the only things preventing the Joker from permanently attaining this state are a lack of superpowers and his obsession with Batman.

** Cell planned on becoming one of these after the Cell Games. Once he was finished having his fun on Earth, he planned to destroy it, then travel to other planets and repeat the process. But he was killed before he could get started.

But he was killed before he could get started. His motive was that as the UltimateLifeform, his true purpose was to cause the end of all life.

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* [[FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi Crowned Death]]'s cult revolves around decrying 'the blight that is life' and celebrateing 'the beauty of death, the end of existence'. Mukrezar, upon his resurrection, notes tongue-in-cheek that Crowned Death's followers continue to spread that very message... even after death. Mukrezar himself probably qualifies, though his antics seem to be more motivated by ItAmusedMe than any desire for destruction itself.

* [[FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', [[WarGod Mars]], [[Franchise/WonderWoman the Amazons']] ancient enemy intends to destroy Earth, killing everybody and relocate all souls to a kind of Valhalla where they'll fight forever, keeping him eternally fed.
-->'''Mars:''' Mars is not tied to Earth. Mars is tied to war. And what better war than that of vast empires within the second Heaven? Where billions may die, billions more be enslaved, and the bloodflow which results nourishes my power with every drop. No. Earth is unnecessary. A canker in my being. When it is destroyed, only my pain will vanish.

Contrast the PersonOfMassDestruction (who doesn't necessarily ''want'' to use their powers to destroy the world), MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds (who causes damage of this scale largely by accident, through ignorance, or for comedic, non-serious reasons intended to elicit laughter), and WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds (whose tragic, crapsack lives made them see red and lay the blame on all their woes upon the world). Omnicidal Maniacs are ''not'' amusing and have [[WhyYouShouldDestroyThePlanetEarth clearly-defined reasons for wanting to destroy everything nearby]], which they do with a great deal of malice.

** Durthu Eldest of Ancients, a spirit of Athel Loren, is the oldest living thing in the Warhammer world and blames all the tragedy he's experienced over the eons on creatures made of flesh (which, to be fair, is true). He intends to exterminate everything in the world that isn't a natural spirit.

** Alduin, the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse, has the title "World-Eater" for a reason. It is his divinely mandated duty to "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" at the end of every "kalpa" ([[EternalRecurrence cycle of time]]) so that it can be remade anew. Though depending on your interpretation of the mythology, he may or not fit the 'maniac' part of this trope as his destroying the world is actually a regulated process. However, as Mehunres Dagon learned in ''The Seven Fights of the Aldudaga'', Alduin gets absolutely ''livid'' if you interfere with the process.

* Morgoth of ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' is called "the Dark Enemy of the World" for a reason - his ultimate goal is simply to destroy the Earth, reducing it to the original primordial void. This mad scheme is in contrast to his apprentice Sauron (later the BigBad of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'') whose original motivation was to impose order and structure upon what he saw as a chaotic and disordered world.

* Morgoth of ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' is called "the Dark Enemy of the World" for a reason - his ultimate goal is simply to destroy the Earth, reducing it to the original primordial void. That this was an impossible task is what drove him onward. He could have reduced all of middle earth to dust and would still have been driven mad with rage at being unable to ''destroy the dust'' itself. All because Morgoth didn't and couldn't create the world for himself. This mad scheme is in contrast to his apprentice Sauron (later the BigBad of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'') whose original motivation was to impose order and structure upon what he saw as a chaotic and disordered world.
