* The Eternal Doctrine and the Path of Now and Forever from ''StarControl'', both of which treat Ur-Quan security as paramount. The Kzer-Za's Path of Now and Forever decrees that every species is a threat to the Ur-Quan (because it might someday become too powerful if left to its own devices) and therefore must be subjugated. The Kohr-Ah Eternal Doctrine is similar, except its answer to these threats is not subjugation, it's ''annihilation''. It's all good, though since they believe in reincarnation, species they "cleanse" will have a chance to be reborn as Ur-Quan eventually.

* In ''TabletopGame/RocketAge'' the Orthodox Fellowship on Mars can slip into this very easily. The fellowship as a major role in enforcing the Martian caste system, is xenophobic, imperialistic and actively attempts to wipe out other Martian faiths. They also actively sponsor and support the 31st Seal, an anti-Earthling terrorist organisation. Admittedly, much of the xenophobia is due to the subjugation of the Martian people, but not all.

** Some Chaos Marines earnestly believe that only being united under the Chaos Gods will allow humanity to survive. Of course, it's often quite hard to tell which of them actually believe this and which just use it as an excuse for personal cruelty.

* The Soldiers of the One in ''Series/{{Caprica}}'' are a monotheistic cult in a polytheistic society that believes in absolute black and white morality, and some of their branches are perfectly willing to commit suicide bombings for their beliefs, while the others quietly approve of their actions. Later the Cylons inherited the religion and used it to justify the attempted destruction of the human race in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''.

** Originally, the Tal'darim protoss faction from ''Starcraft II'' were the KnightTemplar flavour of this trope, in that they were territorial and aggressive and felt no remorse about killing the player's forces in missions pitched against them, but they had the legitimate grievance that the protagonists were explicitly showing up to steal their artifacts and possessions to sell for profit, and the beings they worship, the Xel'Naga, are definitely benevolent entities. They were pretty much the LawfulEvil BlackSheep of the protoss race, who are otherwise [[AlwaysLawfulGood reasonable, honourable and stand-up people]]. [[spoiler:At least they were until the ''Heart of the Swarm'' expansion pack, which clarified that they worship the TokenEvilTeammate of the Xel'naga pantheon - Amon, the Fallen One, which upgraded them to a RelgionOfEvil.]]
