* ''TurtlesForever'' has the Utrom!Shredder graduate to this status after he discovers the existence of the multiverse, and finds out that every universe contains an incarnation of his hated enemies. This drives him completely over the edge and he decides to bring down the entire multiverse, even though this would mean the death of him as well. This stands in stark contrast to the buffoonish 1987!Shredder, or the Mirage!Shredder who was just a petty crimelord.
** In the same continuity, there's Demon!Shredder, who Utrom!Shredder based his identity on after arriving in medieval Japan.

* The Ruin, BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'', is a planet-sized EldritchAbomination that finds all life repulsive and wants to annihilate everything that lives, usually on a planetary scale. Its [[TheDragon Dragon]], [[spoiler:Asra Nox]], has a similar mindset towards all non-human sentient life due to a [[FreudianExcuse traumatic experience during her childhood]].

** In the old series, Davros never quite attempted this, but conversations between him and the Doctor suggested he would if he had the power - simply because he ''could''. Which pretty much sums up why he'd want to destroy all of reality in Series 4 - because he can. Should be noted that though he will survive along with the Daleks, he takes it for granted that they won't eventually kill him too once the bomb has done its job.
*** More than just suggested; in the episode where Davros was introduced, the Doctor asked him, "If you created a virus that, if released, would destroy all other life in the universe, would you release it?" After talking a bit about the incredible power he would hold, Davros concluded that if he created such a virus, yes, he ''would'' release it, ''[[ForTheEvulz simply because he could]]''.
** Fenric, though he didn't get as close, also counts.

** 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 ''MortalKombatArmaggedon'' 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.

*** [[GodOfEvil Shinnok's]] arcade ending in ''MortalKombatX'' reveals the fallen Elder God wanted to obtain his RageAgainstTheHeavens by merging all the realms into the One Being, which then devours the Elder Gods and results in a ClassZ ApocalypseHow. It's implied [[ManBehindTheMan that the One Being was behind]] Shinnok's ambitions to merge the realms, just as it did with Shao Kahn and Onaga in the past.

* ''WhateleyUniverse'': Averted with Tennyo, who is bound to an entity created for this purpose, and is revolted by the fact. Fortunately for her sanity, she has yet to be told just [[TakingYouWithMe how literally]] [[ApocalypseHow/ClassZ the term 'omnicidal' was meant]] in regards to the Star Stalker.

*** The [[EvilCounterpart Dark Judges]] have a philosophy that boils down to this. Undead psychopaths devoted to Law, they figure that since only the living commit crimes, life itself should be made a crime that is punishable by death. They slaughtered the entire population of their world, then found themselves stuck, as they hadn't any form of space travel, making them come off more as KillAllHumans in practice.
