* [[TheDragon Ishamael]] has elements of this- he teamed up with [[BigBad the Dark One]] because he came to the conclusion that the endless repetion of ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' made life pointless misery, and he decided to end it by simply breaking the Wheel (which would also have the effect of destroying the universe). [[spoiler: He's also a DeathSeeker, but is GenreSavvy to the fact that his cosmos runs on reincarnation, meaning that if he wants to kill himself, dragging the rest of reality down with him is the best way to make sure it sticks]].

* In ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'', Clyde Shelton seeks revenge not only on the man who destroyed his family, but on the entire system that failed to adequately punish him.

* In ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'', Clyde Shelton seeks revenge not only on the man who destroyed his family, but on the entire system that failed to adequately punish him. He even goes as far as to describe his murder spree "biblical" (probably in the [[TakingYouWithMe Samson]] kind of way).

AlasPoorVillain may still apply, despite their [[JerkassWoobie jerkass tendencies]], but only because [[AfterActionVillainAnalysis Explaining The Villain Explains The Conflict]].

This is a villain who poses a [[SlidingScaleOfVillainEffectiveness credible threat]] to [[SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat an entire community]], is miserable, and blames it on everyone else. They rationally want to "Put Them All Out Of Their Misery".

** This may extend to other Witches too. [[LivingShadow Elsa Maria]]'s [[EldritchLocation Labyrinth]] has Catholic iconography, and her official description says that "she continually prays for all of creation and drags all life equally into her shadow." There's also the [[BadFuture potentially]] most powerful Witch of all, [[ApocalypseHow Kriemhild Gretchen]] (aka [[spoiler:[[AllLovingHero Madoka]] herself]]), who wants to draw all of humanity into her own personal "heaven" and can only be defeated by [[AsLongAsThereIsEvil eliminating all pain from the world]].

* Remy (Creator/MichaelRapaport), the AntiVillain of ''Film/HigherLearning''. He turns to neo-Nazism not because he is inherently malicious, but because he has come to believe that [[StereotypeFlip white Aryans are the truly persecuted group in modern America]] - schemed against by [[GreedyJew Jews]], deprived of jobs by Asians, and bullied by [[ScaryBlackMan gangs of blacks]]. He even comes to hate all non-Nazi Aryans, believing them to be [[CategoryTraitor unwilling to defend their own people]]. [[spoiler: So at a multicultural festival he shoots two people, one of whom is a black girl who dies [[BloodFromTheMouth vomiting up blood]]. He commits suicide soon after, though it is not clear whether that is out of remorse or because of this trope.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'''s two-part premiere features [[FallenAngel Nightmare Moon]], formerly [[GodEmperor Princess Luna]] prior to her corruption by a combination of dark magic and bitterness toward her older sister and the land they ruled for taking the [[PaintingTheFrostOnWindows nights she created]] - and her, by extension - for granted. She attempts to correct this injustice by seizing the throne for herself and bringing about TheNightThatNeverEnds on two separate occasions (once a thousand years ago, and again [[SealedEvilInACan when she returns in the present]]).
