** Pain who wants to end all wars by giving people the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.
** "Salamander" Hanzo, a legendary shinobi with a reputation as TheDreaded, claimed his warmongering ways sprang from an attempt in his youth to unite the land under him. This is a case that doesn't work as well as Pain's; while Pain based his plan on human nature and acknowledged a lot of people would die in cycles because of it, war would become unbearable as long as his weapon existed and long periods of peace would be possible. Hanzo's wars just made the division in the shinobi world worse (since he lost interest in his original ideals early on and became a paranoid monster that oppressed his people) and was actually directly responsible for driving Pain insane in the first place.

fantastic nuclear warfare and make war much less likely by virtue of mutually assured destruction. He flat out states that his plan is a stop-gap measure, and he expects them to resume fighting and nuke each other once they've forgotten how terrible it is. And eventually revert to peace for short periods before doing it all over again.[[InsaneTrollLogic "True peace" really.]]

His master plan to do it, to put the world into a perpetual state of war against him that would only last as long as he continues to perpetuate the hatred itself.]]

* The Operative in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' wants to create a perfect world without sin, no matter how many innocent children he has to kill in the process. An oddly self-aware example, in that he freely admits there's no place for a monster like him in his intended paradise.

* Similar to the RealLife examples below, this is one way to deal with traps in most dungeon-crawling games. Rather than attempting to avoid or disarm the trap and risk accidentally triggering it in your face, just stand back and find some way to trigger it remotely.[[note]]Of course, this only works for simple mechanical traps; magic or self-resetting ones are more difficult to deal with.[[/note]]
