* In ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'' :Island of the Lost Digimon. The human and beast digimon are at war with each other, and both sides have a leader of their respective side, who are in fact the same digimon who can slide digivolve into human and beast form. His ultimate plan is to have both sides kill each other so he can collect as many digi-eggs to revive an ancient digimon to conquer the digital world.

* Ethan Zobelle from ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'' is initially presented as a white supremacist who is trying to run the Sons Of Anarchy out of town. His white supremacist right hand man thinks this is because they are selling guns to latino and black groups. However Zobel has no issue with dealing with said gangs - he is seen buying guns from the Mayans, a latino gang. In fact, Zobel is an FBI informant who is trying to kill the gun trade in the town altogether.

* Series/{{House}} versus [[TyrantTakesTheHelm Vogler]] was lined with this from the start. Vogler wanted to eliminate House's department because it's by far the most expensive one in the hospital, but [[LampshadeHanging only treats one patient a week]]. House catches on to this game very quickly, and spends time exposing Volger for someone who may have noble desires but is still just a businessman looking for a new market to venture into.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' HalloweenSpecial “The Halloween Door” features Dr. Crowley, a MoralGuardian who seeks to eliminate anything weird or supernatural, and this includes Halloween. While he claims that it’s for the good of the children, it becomes apparent that he couldn’t care less about them. When a child approaches him saying “trick or treat”, Crowley basically tells him to screw off.

* In ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', Willy Wonka is accused of this (by Mike Teevee, no less) after Violet's "accident". He calls chewing gum "disgusting" and implied that Violet had it coming because of the bad habit, which prompts Teevee to ask why his factory produces gum if he feels that way about it. (As you might expect, Wonka quickly changes the subject, but you have to admit, [[JerkassHasAPoint Teevee's point was a valid one.]])

* One of the scenarios in the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' sourcebook ''Elder Evils'' involves the Hulks of Zoretha, five evil elemental beings from another world who have been in a dormant state resembling statues for eons. If they ever awoke, they'd attempt to "purge" the world of all other sentient beings to repopulate it with their brood. Several {{Apocalypse Cult}}s among savage humanoids have formed around the Hulks, and recently, these cults have united under the leadership of a charismatic frost giant named Janwulf the Soulbiter, who claims to have the same goal as the other cultists, waking the Hulks and bringing about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Is this because Janwulf is an OmnicidalManiac? No. He actually has no desire or reason to destroy the world, and has no divine powers at all, or any idea how to waken them. What he really wants is more power, and by keeping what he sees as a false religion alive under his leadership, he has gained more followers and influence than any other giant in recent history. [[spoiler: (If the scenario plays out as suggested in the book, the PlayerCharacters will suspect something suspicious about their patron when they defeat Janwulf, and with good reason; [[TreacherousAdvisor she's a more dangerous villain]] who ''really'' wants to awaken the Hulks, and set Janwulf up so they could kill him.)]]

* Claude Frollo, the villain of ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', constantly uses religion as a convenient cover for his racism, arrogance and KnightTemplar tendencies. Throughout the film his piety degrades with his sanity. In the first line of his VillainSong, he says "[[GratuitousLatin Beata Maria]], you know I am a righteous man, of my virtue I am justly proud" which is rich given {{Pride}} is the worst of the SevenDeadlySins in Christianity and especially Catholicism.
