* In one version of [[ChoppingBlock Butch R. Mann's]] psychopathy, he both sees himself as TheEveryman, and deeply hates himself. He repeatedly chickens out of suicide, so he instead kills other people to metaphorically kill himself over and over again. If he could, he would kill everyone in the world, but he would then go even crazier with no one left to kill. (Given how wildly Butch's personality varies from strip to strip, this often doesn't apply at all.)

* The Wintersmith in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel of the same name wants to win Tiffany's heart by saving people from their constant fear of death... forever.
** Also in ''Guards, Guards'' when Vimes sees Sybil Ramkin's room the narration says something about how anyone witnessing it might be filled with a "diffuse compassion and decide that the best thing for everyone would be to wipe out the human race and start over again with amoebas".

* ''[[Literature/KnownSpace World of Ptavvs]]'' demonstrates this in its most basic form, with the last survivor of a telepathic alien race stranded on Earth and surrounded by humans, their unshielded minds boring into his. In fury, he blasts a powerful command: "STOP THINKING AT ME!" [[EmptyShell Quite a number of people do]], and everyone else in the world is left dazed. This isn't a matter of lack of control, by the way--he views all non-telepaths much the way most humans view cattle, and if they must be sacrificed for his comfort, well, it's not like they're ''people'' like him. And the whole mess is solved by a FingerPokeOfDoom. From one of the cattle.

* Ganondorf in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker Wind Waker]]'' wants to use the Triforce to take control of all of Hyrule and is willing to beat up two kids to get it. Just before attacking, he gives a very heartfelt monologue about how his people, who lived in a desert, were constantly dying while the rest of Hyrule prospered and how this made him want to control the land in which everyone lived a better life.



* Yggdrasill of ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. He spends 4,000 years trying to bring back his dead sister, while trying to fulfill her last wish of a world without discrimination. Unfortunately, he ends up deciding that the best way to accomplish that is by creating a world of lifeless beings.

Villains can have a wide range of motivations. Some villains get sadistic pleasure from [[KickTheDog seeing others suffer]]. Others simply want the same things the heroes do: wealth, love, food, etc., but they lack the [[CardCarryingVillain moral integrity]], [[PunchClockVillain courage]], or [[ObliviouslyEvil knowledge]] to be a heroic character.

* ''{{Exalted}}'' features the Neverborn, an example of Type 5. Once, they were Primordials, the creators of the universe, but as they designed it, they didn't believe the cycle of death would ever need to incorporate something as grand as themselves. So when they ended up getting killed, they found they couldn't pass into Lethe, eventually undergoing the cosmic equivalent of sepsis without ever being able to die from it. So they plotted to feed Creation into Oblivion, mainly so it'd stop the pain.

* [[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. He even goes as far as to describe his murder spree "biblical" (probably in the [[TakingYouWithMe Samson]] kind of way).
