* ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'': In the war between Heaven and Hell, you officially serve a council that mediates the two but are ''really'' looking for who set you up and taking down anyone in your way, regardless of side. [[spoiler:At the end you turn against the mediating council as well.]]

* In an example similar to the page quote, Russel Sharp of {{XSGCOM}} believes that his best chance of getting into heaven is if God doesn't want him on Satan's side. Another character ''agrees'' with him, saying that it would "require a rewrite of ''Revelations.''" In-series, he fights for Earth... and really, only Earth. He has shown that he doesn't really care about Earth's off-world allies, and considers ''all'' non-earth humans to be below him. At one point, he's tested to see if he was the one who ordered attacks on the [[TheResistance Free Jaffa]] and [[MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch Tok'Ra]], and he's more annoyed by the idea that they thought he would leave ''survivors'' "like an amateur" than the idea that he was behind the attacks.

* Remaining unaligned and killing everyone is one of the options in ''VideoGame/{{Geneforge}} 2''. It might actually be one of the happiest endings if you don't trigger the sanity meter..

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', TrueNeutral was actually described with terms like this in 2nd edition, where a True Neutral character would actively work to ensure no power would gain too strong, engaging ChronicBackstabbingDisorder [[ForTheGreaterGood For The Greater Neutrality]]. Actual attempts to play that way have gotten ''this'' interpretation labled as "StupidNeutral".

* The Anarchist path in ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}''. The Fatebinder declares war on or betrays every major faction in the Tiers and claims the entire realm as their own. A few minor factions may ally with the Fatebinder, but every major one is out to get them thereafter.

** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIVApocalypse'' plays this trope to similar magnitudes with the Massacre ending, where you not only defeat Law and Chaos, but also [[spoiler:slay ''every god and deity to ever exist'', starting the universe anew as its new Creator. And as a bonus, you fight through and kill most of your former allies as well.]]

** VideoGame/Fallout4 averts it for the main story by [[ButThouMust forcing the player]] to eventually pick one faction over the others. Fortunately, the story [=DLCs=] at least play it straight again. Don't like any of the factions warring over Far Harbor? Just wipe them all out and leave the Island to itself. Don't want those raider gangs occupy Nuka-World any longer? KillEmAll and give it back to the peaceful traders. There are dedicated quests available to facilitate the latter two options, and if done right, the player doesn't even miss out on a lot of unique loot this way.

* Most of [[VideoGame/TheForceUnleashed The Force Unleashed's]] missions involve Starkiller cutting down everyone and everything he comes across, including Imperial Stormtroopers who are, at the moment, at least, on his side. [[spoiler: This gets subverted in the second half, though. Once Galen joins the Rebellion, he never has to kill another rebel soldier again.]]

In a world with BlackAndGrayMorality where the [[DesignatedHero "good"]] side isn't much better than the "evil" side, this may be presented as the most idealistic path.

Can also result from an "Evil Path" that involves ICanRuleAlone. The militant form of StupidNeutral. If the whole point is to simply KillEmAll ForTheEvulz, you have OmnicidalManiac.
