** [[DirtyCoward Blue Diamond]]: She didn't care about the heavy losses that would be on her side, all that mattered to her is that the gem rebellion would be over.

* [[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Carnage]] believes that life has no purpose, laws are illusions, and once you start believing and accepting that, you can truly be happy. Add the fact that he has a Symbiote partner and you have one of the most dangerous {{Serial Killer}}s in Marvel.
* Madcap is another Marvel villain like this, a former student in Biblical studies who survived an accident that killed his entire class, while at the same time, gaining powerful regenerative powers from a chemical created by the criminal organization AIM. Unable to understand why he should benefit from an accident that killed all his colleges, he went nuts and figured nothing has any meaning. DependingOnTheWriter he ranges from a LaughablyEvil nuisance to an AxeCrazy sociopath.

* In ''Franchise/TheTerminator'', the titular cyborgs are generally programmed for one thing--often to either kill or protect a particular person--and will never stop in pursuance of that goal. If you blow one of them in half, it will ''crawl'' towards its target.

** Two of Lincoln's most successful commanders could also show some of these traits. While Ulysses S. Grant ''started'' as AFatherToHisMen, ''ended'' as AFatherToHisMen, but during the later stages of the Civil War, was noted for a high level of tactical and strategic ruthlessness. There was also Sherman, who concluded that WarIsHell and thus finishing it as quickly as possible by nearly any means was the best course, resulting in a campaign of devastation so destructive it's still a cause for rancor in some places ''today'', a century and a half after it actually happened!

* The fact that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is this character is probably what keeps him from being viewed as a CM (...sometimes...). Have to admire a comedian who will do anything for the joke. his was further expanded on in the alternate continuity ''ComicBook/{{Joker}} comic (which was told through the viewpoint of one of his new henchmen after his latest escape from Arkham): The Joker hates apologies. He hates the entire concept of apologising. He is thus able to commit to things (and commit things) with far more intensity and far more honesty than most of Gotham's inhabitants.

* When the KarmaMeter of a MadScientist [[MoralEventHorizon hits zero]] in ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', they become Illuminated. They have no boundaries or limits as to what they are willing and capable of doing... but the term is all but synonymous with CM and there's a [[HumanResources perfectly]] [[PoweredByAForsakenChild good]] [[AxCrazy reason]] [[AGodAmI for that]].

* {{Superman}} Yes, him of all people. In recent works he has been depicted as this after a loved one dies, usually Lois Lane. Although post Crisis Superman can be considered this cause he is willing to sacrifice anything for the greater good, getting to the point that he had to choose between saving Lois or the Joker. He chose to save the Joker.

* Creator/AlanMoore uses this to explain Hyde's growth and Jekyll's faltering health in ''LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen:'' Hyde was once smaller than Jekyll, but the longer they spent as separate entities, they changed. Jekyll became frail from his lack of passion, while Hyde grew due to his lack of limits. It fits Hyde's personality as well, as he joyfully commits hideous acts that give even the more bloodthirsty of his teammates pause.

* Machinima/RedVsBlue introduces Church in all his various versions as having shades of this. Willing and able to break any law conceived by man to fulfill his one desire. Upon the death of that desire going and breaking the laws of mortality to bring her back. While the rest of the Blood Gulch crew aspire to a variety of downright odd moralities, he shows a dedication to winning that rival's every other character because he does it beyond the grave to the point most have given up on killing him. And then he lets go of even his one desire, letting her stay dead so they could both move on.
** [[spoiler: As of season 13, he freely relinquishes his memories as they too were restricting him. Turning a light hearted comedy series into one of the most profound and longest written transformation of a character into an Ubermensch.]]
