** As the series progresses, it becomes increasingly obvious that Demona has no one but herself to blame for her many problems. For instance, she told a group of Viking warriors to attack the ancient castle where she, the other gargoyles, and the humans who shared the space with them lived during the day, as the gargoyles would be stone then. Not only did she sell out the humans (because she felt that the gargoyles had been their "first" and thus should be isolationist), but she ''didn't tell her clan'', instead choosing to hide away from the carnage. Similarly, she brutally attacked a young farmer while stealing food from him when she could have easily fled, leading to the creation of a tribe called Hunters dedicated to attacking her kind, and later betrayed Macbeth, her longtime ally and closest thing to a human friend, simply because she overheard one of Macbeth's ''advisors'' (that is, not even the man himself) suggesting a betrayal of the gargoyles; Macbeth didn't immediately shout this idea down (even though he would clearly never betray Demona), which was enough to "prove" that he was, in her opinion, a villain. The problem is that Demona [[NeverMyFault absolutely refuses to accept any responsibility for her own mistakes]], instead blaming humans at every turn. By the end of the second season, it's painfully clear that her desire to exterminate the human race is really a desperate attempt to justify her own horrible deeds and get past her guilt and shame.

* Another Lewis example appears in the backstory to ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew'', when the Empress Jadis wiped out all other life on her home world so she wouldn't lose the throne, then preserved herself in suspended animation in the hopes that some dimensional travellers would wake her up and provide a way to escape her dying world.

* [[BigBad Cyrus]] of ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'' believes that living beings are doomed to suffer because of their incomplete spirits. Emotions, free will and knowledge all cause suffering by their very nature, weighing living things down and making their lives meaningless. His solution to this is to create a new world in which spirit simply does not exist, and destroy the current incomplete world in the process. [[spoiler:After you defeat him, you learn a few things about him which explain why he thinks this way. His parents were neglectful at best, and he struggled to get along with his peers as a child. His grandfather realised that he needed help, but was too afraid of intruding to give it to him, meaning that Cyrus's underlying issues only got worse. Cyrus himself will wonder if things could have been different when encountered in ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon''.]]

This character is not necessarily an OmnicidalManiac, a nihilist who wants to destroy everything for the sake of destruction, nor a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds who was mistreated, snaps, and lashes out on the world. This person is simply trying to cure an ailment, and are willing to go to any length to do it. While Put Them All Out Of My Misery villains are usually at least slightly sympathetic in the sense that at least their motive is understandable, [[SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness they come off as jerks]] for putting their own misery ahead of others' safety.

# The villain [[ICannotSelfTerminate is indestructible, but wants to commit suicide]]. He believes that he will succeed in suicide if he destroys the whole world or can force a SuicideByCop by someone who can get the job done if he stays on the right side of the MoralEventHorizon, and perhaps also that he is doing his murdered victims a favor by granting them the "gift" of death he is trying to get for himself. After all WhoWantsToLiveForever See also SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum which is the game plan for a villain exhibiting this type of the trope.
