* ''FanFic/KingdomHearts3FinalStand'': The Insurgos, hands down. As far as they're concerned, everyone in the royal family of Radiant Garden is evil purely because they're [[InTheBlood related to Hanako, a tyrant queen]], anything and everything they do to get at them is justified, and anyone who sides with the royals for ''any'' reason is their enemy. It's actually revealed in ''Moons of Fate'' that [[spoiler:Yamato Kazekiri's father approached them, offering to negotiate with the royal family for them and make things easier; rather than take his offer, the Insurgos openly accused him of "kissing up to the royals" and murdered him on the spot before [[MoralEventHorizon killing his pregnant wife]].]]

* Samara in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Her philosophy as a Justicar is that so long as she follows her Code, all of her actions are just, even when that action happens to be killing a helpless enemy simply for refusing to give her information or potentially killing a police officer for being ordered to take Samara into custody. Unusually, she recognizes that this is a problem in a galaxy of GreyOnGreyMorality and her code even has some deliberate loopholes for situations when "kill the hell out of everything in my way" would not be a good idea.

* This was the hat of the Mercy Killers in ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}''. They believed that the guilty must be punished for their crimes, and they would use any means necessary to do so. And considered any crimes they committed along the way to be completely justified.

* ''WesternAnimation/AeonFlux'': Trevor Goodchild honestly believes that he can transform ''InkCity'' into a better place -- a New Bregna -- if he can just eliminate TheEvilsOfFreeWill. He is so convinced that his cause is just that when [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Wakko Warner]] and [[WesternAnimation/RegularShow Don]] crash in and find him about to [[AndIMustScream do horrible things]] to their brothers, he actually tries to convince them it's for the best. Needless to say, neither one buys it.

* ComicBook/{{Batman}} never kills. '''Period'''. He won't do it and he will not allow anybody else he's working with to do it -- he says he leaves that to the courts, but even if we are talking about [[ComicBook/TheJoker a guy who has created so much massive terrorism that has been sentenced (canonically) at least once to die]], and the people who tell Batman it should be done insist that they are not talking about moving on to kill every single criminal in Gotham (including the jaywalkers) but just ''him'', [[JokerImmunity Batman will ever break his rule. Ever.]]

* [[DesignatedHero Coop]] from ''WesternAnimation/MegasXLR'' just assumes he's always the good guy, regardless of what he actually does. This isn't out of arrogance or insanity though, mostly he's just [[ObliviouslyEvil too dumb]] to realize what the consequences of his actions are.

** This is also the standard response to criticisms that [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide certain]] [[ApocalypseHow actions]] taken by or commanded by God would be considered [[MoralEventHorizon unforgivably monstrous]] in any other context. If God does it, it must be moral.
