* WhateleyUniverse has Crucible, a WellIntentionedExtremist Struggler, who goes around making people 'live up to their potential' by using hypertech to deliberately cause disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and meteor strikes. To him, what is a few thousand deaths and tens of thousands of lives ruined if it manages to make a hundred or so people 'rise to the occasion' and become more heroic, more aware, and more thankful for their lives?

** There are also non-villain examples. Olivier Mira Armstrong is [[FourStarBadAss General Badass]] and leads the Briggs fortress border troops, who are the most badass soldiers in all Amestris. Her credo is "survival of the fittest", which she applied to everyone, including ''herself''.

* Vegeta from ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' believes the Saiyan race is the most powerful in the universe and that Earthlings are weak and inferior to them. His transition to Majin Vegeta is largely because this belief, saying (in the English dub) "It's survival of the fittest. The strong will survive, and the weak shall perish!" Even Goku pointing out that during their battle they may have inadvertently revived Majin Buu is dismissed by Vegeta, saying (though he hardly believes it himself) that the two of them have evolved far beyond even Kaioshin's expectations to the point that Majin Buu is not a concern anymore.

* ''Webcomic/{{Filth Biscuit}}'': Lucy LeDarc, the protagonist of [[http://www.filthbiscuit.com/i-pwned-my-love/ "I Pwned My Love"]] sees others as obstacles or pawns in her struggle to to claw her way up from the gutter -- specifically her childhood friend, incredibly loyal but dim-witted boxer Mick the Rock. Her philosophy, as she explains it to Mick, is pure Social Darwinism; which suits her, since she's also a textbook psychopath.

* The Altmer/High elves of ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' believe that they descend from the gods, and that the diversity of all other Elven races are the result of "degeneration". They actively try to breed themselves back into their ideal, including killing undesired progeny.
** Molag Bal is the Daedric Prince of Corruption and Domination. He's pretty keen on the idea of the strong dominating the weak. In ''Skyrim'' he goads you into killing the Vigilant of Stendarr who accompanied you into his House of Horrors because "Weak. He's weak. You're strong. Kill!"

They believe that they descend from the gods, [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra]], and that the diversity of all other Elven races are of Mer is the result of "degeneration". They actively try to breed themselves back into their ideal, including killing undesired progeny.

* Frank Underwood in ''Series/HouseOfCards''. He is determined to destroy the traditional American system of handouts (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) in favor of forcing all American citizens regardless of poor health or disadvantage to just get a job, so that the weak can be eliminated. Frank also has no qualms of the many heinous acts he commits (murders, defamation, betrayal) of the people he must destroy first to become President of the United States.
