* ''Film/{{Frailty}}'': Adam and Fenton's father seems like a deranged SerialKiller at first who tortures and kills innocent people after hallucinating that he's been given a MissionFromGod to "destroy demons", but the ending reveals that it was all true: those people really ''were'' demons and their father was a SerialKillerKiller.

* An interpretation of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' is that [[spoiler: the title character becomes this, effectively killing people before they literally become monsters]].

* The Investigation Team in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' at first think Taro Namatame is one of these, due to his... unhinged behavior and his insistence that he's "saving" people. [[spoiler: He isn't. He means save literally: he genuinely thinks he's protecting people from the real killer by kidnapping them and putting them into the TV world. He just doesn't realize it's the TV world that's killing them, or that he's playing directly into the killer's hands.]]
* The BigBad in ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'' is a case of this. [[spoiler: [[VillainProtagonist The Batter]] intends to "[[PureIsNotGood purify]]" [[OmnicidalManiac everyone and everything]] because he genuinely believes that death is preferable to living in a CrapsackWorld. This includes both his wife and his creator, who is also ''[[WouldHurtAChild his infant son.]]'']]

* The player can potentially become one of these in ''{{KULT}}'' -- it's possible to enlighten people in a positive manner, but it's often easier to drive them over the DespairEventHorizon.

* {{Zig Zagg|ing Trope}}ed in ''TabletopGame/FadingSuns''. The Church attempts to impose "extreme penance" on psychics, and this ''is'' effective in reducing a psychic's [[TheDarkSide Urge]]; also, some psis and theurges can in fact see into someone's soul, detect his/her sins, and determine the appropriate means for correcting that soul. However, Church doctrine is not always correct regarding what qualifies as a sin; for example, Invention is ''not'' a sin in the eyes of [[{{God}} the Pancreator]] (as far as any powers can determine), but don't tell that to a Church official.

* This is essentially the motivation for the OmnicidalManiac BigBad of ''{{Arcanum}}'', as there genuinely is an afterlife that is better than this world in that universe that everyone goes to upon death. Thus, he is portrayed rather sympathetically.

* [[ZigZaggingTrope ZigZagged]] in ''{{Preacher}}'': It turns out that the protagonist's horrible family WAS in fact doing the good Lords work when they tortured him and murdered his father and all the other horrors they committed in order to force him to become a priest. And their actions would indeed have kept him safe from eternal damnation, if he hadn't rebelled later. However, it also turns out that GodIsEvil -- and thus, saving souls for him actually isn't a moral thing to do.

*** The Tau are ScaryDogmaticAliens who are made physically ill by the thought of not doing the ''right'' thing. That is, what they ''think'' is the right thing. Which is to say, what their ruling caste ''[[MindControl makes them think]]'' is the right thing.
