*** The tagline for the show and movie says their goal is world domination, but despite that they never really try to capture and control anything more than simply blow it up.

* In the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' story "Return of the Sinister Six", ComicBook/DoctorOctopus claimed that his EvilPlan - which entailed reuniting the Six in order to hijack a military satellite (intended to spray dye into the atmosphere for an experiment) replace the dye with poison - had the goal of world domination via blackmail in mind. It was not. Ock's sole intention was to gain wealth and power by making cocaine unusable (the "poison" would make attempts to use it cause agonizing seizures) and selling the cure. (And he viewed the other five villains as expendable pawns.)

* ''Film/{{Cybejack}}'': The terrorists don't seem to be in it for any cause in particular; they just want the virus so they can seize power for its own sake.

* The terrorists in ''Film/RedEye'', seen only briefly, are white guys who speak Russian. Their reasoning for wanting to kill the deputy head of Homeland Security are never explained, though it is strongly implied that they have one. The primary villain of the film mentions that the organizations "wants to create a big brash message", but never explains exactly what. It's something to do with the Deputy Head's controversial comments and hinted-at authoritarian international policy. In other words, they have a goal, but it's not a very important one to the plot of the film.

* Averted in ''ComicBook/{{Champions 2016}}'' as the teen team deals with a group of Islamic extremists who are terrorizing a town by enforcing their rules. The team attempts to get a group of girls who were set to be killed by them out of the town, only for them to invoke SupermanStaysOutOfGotham, telling them that they need to solve this problem or they'll think America will solve all of their problems.

* [[NebulousEvilOrganisation Ouma]] from ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' appear to have no motives as to why they want to cause chaos, though the most likely reason is to TakeOverTheWorld.

Caused by the same motives as WesternTerrorists, but more so. Apparently, terrorists are willing to kill, maim, torture -- not to mention putting their own lives at risk -- just ForTheEvulz. These can actually be very dangerous opponents, being ruthless, impossible to predict, and impossible to negotiate with, and generally occupying the place [[OlderThanTheyThink once held by demons throughout world mythology]].

* Creator/MegCabot's ''American Girl'' begins with a botched presidential assassination, but deliberately avoids political commentary in favor of examining the life of the bystander who thwarted the attack. The solution? The assassin was obsessed with a supermodel, and convinced himself that killing the president would impress her.
