* In ''Anime/PsychoPass'' the Sybil System and the people who work to keep it in control of society are this, with the anime starting AFTER they succeed in realizing their goal. Near the midpoint of the show the idea of maximum happiness is highlighted as why the system is so great. All it asks is that you submit to it deciding your entire lifepath, constant drone overwatch, the threat of permanent detention or even execution if the prediction system decides you might commit a crime, and the further threat of constant mind-altering drug applications or detention if you have a chronically negative mood.

This is soon deconstructed by an individual completely alien to its morals: [[TheUbermensch Makishima]].

*** The difference is explained in the MMO. Turns out that [[spoiler:individuals forced to work together means that different viewpoints and resistances act as safeguards and vaccines. The ENTIRE Borg were hacked by psychopaths a LONG time ago.]]

* ''VideoGame/WeHappyFew'': Set in an alternate timeline dystopian 1960's Britain, the Allies were on the brink of total defeat and did... something... so horrifying and devastating that it may as well have been a PyrrhicVictory; everyone needs a lethal designer drug Joy to feel any sort of happiness, and broadcast leader Uncle Jack directs the masses to murder any individual who doesn't take regular doses of drugs. And the island is going to run out of gas and die in a few days due to lack of maintenance from the happy jolly morons. You play as one of the few survivors who realize that everything on Britain is going to hell.

* ''LightNovel/FateZero'' has an ''AntiHero'' example with Kiritsugu Emiya. He believes that sacrifices need to be made in order to achieve greater good or to bring peace and justice. He is willing to sacrifice the few for the sake of many, commit acts of evil to defeat a greater evil, and use unorthodox tactics to achieve his goals. He thinks a lost of innocent life is tragic, but as long as ''more'' innocent lives are saved, he is willing to sacrifice his beloved ones to protect the many.

[[spoiler:The [[JackassGenie Grail]] brutally [[{{Deconstruction}} tears this world-view apart]] when it shows him the logical conclusion of where that philosophy would get him when applied on a world-wide scale, and when he's ultimately forced to realize that it was AllForNothing, he's nearly DrivenToSuicide...only to find meaning again when he saves one life from the Fuyuki Fire resulting from the Grail's destruction: [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Shirou Emiya]]]].

* In George Orwell's ''AnimalFarm'', the pigs start out like this. As the story progresses, some pigs are lost, while others are corrupted by their power unless they were really [[StrawHypocrite Straw Hypocrites]] all along. By the end of the story, the remaining pigs have [[FullCircleRevolution become what they once rebelled against]].
