* Practically any BigBad in the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise would qualify, as many of them are {{greed}}y and sociopathic {{Diabolical Mastermind}}s and/or {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s, and they'll be determined to do it by any means necessary to achieve their EvilPlan, be it murder, kidnapping/holding hostages at gunpoint, blackmail, cutting corners, acquiring a MacGuffin, or in more extreme OmnicidalManiac cases like Ernst Stavro Blofeld or Hugo Drax, ''[[WorldDomination threatening to destroy the entire world]]'' if they don't get what they want. To them, the ends justify the means in succeeding at their goals, and it'll always involve using any means in achieving said goal, even if it's underhanded. They'll do anything ''and'' everything to do it.

--> Belphy shot Jobe a very dirty look. “I thought that you had this big bugaboo about ‘Free Will’, and how you loathed the idea of suppressing another’s mind?” \
“I didn’t suppress Anti-Clod’s free will,” Jobe said mulishly. “I just overrode his motor-control.” We all just gave her THAT look. “WHAT?”

* In ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'', most of the Noxian leadership believes that you should do whatever it takes to win. This has created a bit of a conflict with the more SocialDarwinist side - one champion, Riven, is a DefectorFromDecadence after they deployed chemical weaponry to destroy both her regiment and a Demacian one, rather than allowing them to fight it out and see who was stronger. There are also individual characters from outside Noxus who slip over into this trope, such as Xerath, who at one point brought about the destruction of his home country in order to attain his personal freedom, and centuries chained in a pit hasn't exactly made him less fixated.
