* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Acts III and IV'': As stated in the backstory, even before he became the [[EldritchAbomination monstrous destroyer he is now]], Alucard developed a hatred of all life forms, human and monster alike, seeing them as a plague that needed to be wiped out. The bulk of Hokuto's plan throughout both acts is solely to resurrect Alucard to do just that, because he feels the exact same way.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' has two. First, Dark Laser really wants to blow up the Earth because...well, it's there. A more serious example is [[DarkIsEvil The Darkness]], a powerful and ancient entity who has destroyed countless worlds, including [[spoiler: Turbo Thunder's home Wonder World]] and Yugopotamia.

** Vlad von Carstein has a similar goal, but in his case it's more of a KnightTemplar thing- the undead are immune to Chaos, so by killing every living thing in existence and reanimating them in his thrall, he's actually ''saving'' them from Chaos! .. Or so he says.

** In ''TheThanosImperative'' Thanos goes completely insane when he realizes that [[spoiler:his ThanatosGambit to destroy the Cancer Verse also rendered him immortal, meaning he can never be with Death.]] He makes an earnest effort to wipe out all life in the Marvel-616 Verse [[spoiler:and has to be sealed in what's left of the Cancer Verse to stop him from pulling it off.]]

* In the Season 2 finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', [[BigBad Zoom]] becomes this, as he intends to use his grudge match race with Barry to power up a machine which will take advantage of the fact that [[TheEarthPrimeTheory Earth-1 is the center of the Multiverse]] to destroy every other universe beside Earth-1's, which he will then rule.
* [[Series/TwelveMonkeys The Army of the 12 Monkeys]] are the ones who release the virus that kills most of humanity, but Season 2 reveals that this was not their endgame. In fact, [[spoiler: they were working to [[StableTimeLoop ensure]] that time travel would be created to try and stop them, so that their WarriorMonk assassins, the Messengers, could seize control of the time machine. All so that they can go back and kill "Primaries" (the people who serve as {{Cosmic Keystone}}s keeping time running) with paradoxes, in order to collapse time, in the belief that this will end death.]]

* In what has got to be the weirdest example of this trope ever, Tobias from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'' becomes this in the climax of ''Megamorphs #02: In the Time of the Dinosaurs''. Tobias, just so you know, is firmly one of the heroes. He's TheChosenOne. And yet he coldly manipulates his teammates and the resident aliens they're allied with in order to prevent the destruction of a comet set to crash into Earth. Yes, ''that'' comet. Which not only wipes out all the dinosaurs, but the entirety of the peaceful Mercora race as well. When confronted, Tobias becomes furious and cites IDidWhatIHadToDo as the excuse for his genocide. Most disappointingly, the entire sordid incident is never mentioned again, putting Tobias firmly in the rank of KarmaHoudini, although the Megamorphs books are hard to tie to/place in the canon timeline.
** Of course, if the comet doesn't wipe out the dinosaurs, then the human race can't develop to replace them, which would result in an omnicide-by-retcon of the humans instead, so Tobias would have been an OmnicidalManiac either way.
** And then of course, there's [[UltimateEvil Crayak]]. Even before he became [[EldritchAbomination something that can't be properly described in any language]], he destroyed planets and drove species to extinction purely because [[ForTheEvulz it amused him]]; after his ascension, he now seeks to pit all species against each other until there's only one left, which will worship him as their god.
