* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero Lesson Zero]]", Twilight Sparkle [[SanitySlippage literally goes crazy]] with worry about not turning in her weekly friendship report to Princess Celestia on time and, after failing to find a problem to solve, decides "If I can't ''find'' a friendship problem, I'll '''''make''''' a friendship problem!"
** The episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E20ItsAboutTime It's About Time]]" has Twilight get a visit from her future self which makes her think that there is going to be a terrible calamity by next Tuesday. The episode has her growing increasingly frantic and sleep-deprived, trying to figure out what this calamity ''is'' so that she can stop it. Finally, she gets so desperate that she decides the only way to prevent whatever is going to happen is to find a spell to stop time itself, so that next Tuesday can never come. [[spoiler:The big punchline to the episode is that there never was any future calamity on its way, and the whole plot was kicked off by a StableTimeLoop caused by 'future' Twilight going back to the past in a failed attempt to tell herself not spend the next week freaking out.]]

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'': The goal of the VisionaryVillain in an age where the world is hooked on a global war economy: ''"You still don't get it. I'm using war as a business to get ELECTED! So I can end war as a business."'' Raiden predictably finds this [[YoureInsane completely ridiculous]].

He becomes less self-contradictory when he later details that he's totally fine with plunging USA into anarchic civil war as long as it's ''not a business''. Raiden predictably finds this his ideas [[YoureInsane completely ridiculous]].ridiculous]] either way.

* In ''[[Literature/WizardOfYurt A Bad Spell in Yurt]]'', the young wizard Daimbert is asked by the queen to make it stop raining, as the king is ill and the rain is affecting his health. Since Daimbert had primarily studied spells that would be practical in a farming community (which is where he thought he would end up), he only knows spells to make it ''start'' raining (to help crops grow). He does, however, know a spell to make it stop ''storming'', so in order to make it stop raining, first he has to cast a spell to turn the gentle shower into a terrible storm, because that's something he can stop.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'': Simmons' idea of preventing a disaster that could ''possibly'' happen as a result of President Benford revealing the truth behind the Raccoon City Incident was to cause an ''actual'' disaster by infecting the city of Tall Oaks, where Benford was due to reveal the truth, with the C-Virus, and then nuking it to cover his tracks. Leon and Helena even lampshade it.

* ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'' The Ahb take the position that humanity will be inevitably be destroyed in a galactic war if left to themselves. So they decide to conquer everyone and incorporate them into their Empire, denying all other races the ability of hyperspace travel so that there won't be any war. Tactics used to accomplish this salvation include blowing away the atmosphere of rebellious planets.

* The very core of the backstory to ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'': [[spoiler: Your player character, having received a vision via a magical mask of the brutal wars coming in the 20th century, murders his two sons to save them from their prophesised deaths at the Battle of Somme. He then constructs the titular machine to slaughter the inhabitants of London, and presumably from there all humanity, and replace them with twisted [[PigMan porcine monsters called "Manpigs"]].]] There are some hints that he's being manipulated by an ArtifactOfDoom, though.
