* Kars from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' (the page picture above) wanted nothing more than to help his race overcome their weakness to sunlight and "conquer creation", thereby becoming the most powerful creatures to have ever existed. However, as he needed to sacrifice an insane amount of living beings in order to do so, and his fellows weren't interested in running roughshod over the world in the first place, they [[AmbitionIsEvil eventually turned on him]] and he was forced to KillThemAll in self-defense, making him and his 3 CoDragons [[TheLastOfHisKind The Last Of Their Kind]].

* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' has The Templars. While the degree to which they are visionaries varies from era to era, the templars in general seek a world free of conflict and pain, with them on top ensuring that all are happy and pacified.
** In particular, Loreano Torres of AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag seeks the observatory as a way to spy on all peoples and ensure a better future for humanity.

* ComicBook/LexLuthor in the Film/{{Superman}} films counts as this to some extent. Even if the ''goals'' of his plans (to make himself very rich and/or powerful) are fairly generic, the sheer ''scale'' of what he attempts ([[{{Superman}} causing the west coast of America to fall into the sea]] and [[SupermanReturns building new continents based on Kryptonian technology]]) is undeniably impressive.

* Obould Many-Arrows from ''Literature/TheHuntersBladeTrilogy'' of ''Literature/TheLegendOfDrizzt'' is an orc who has realized that the orcish traditional lifestyle of mindlessly raiding and pillaging is why the other races keep driving them back to the brink of extinction, and so he seeks to give them a better life. Using FromACertainPointOfView, he convinces the ChaoticEvil orcish patron Gruumsh to empower him, and then uses that power to carve out the first ever orcish kingdom and homeland. [[NiceJobFixingItVillain And then he stops conquering and settles for actually ruling his empire, showing orcs that there is more prosperity to be had by farming and trading than there is by being ravening hordes.]] Within a decade, the peace is strong enough that humans and orcs are freely trading, and even voluntarily intermarrying.

* ''Series/ZNation'':
** La Reina, the Queen of the [[TheCartel Zeroes Cartel]], intends to use the cure for the zombie virus, combined with the vast resources of her cartel (which is basically the only large-scale governing body left in North America post-ZombieApocalypse), to rebuild society as she sees fit.
** Dr. Kurian, La Reina's resident MadScientist, turns out to be an EvilutionaryBiologist, who intends to use [[TheImmune Murphy]] as a template to create an entire race of zombie/human hybrids, who will replace both normal humans and zombies (both of which Kurian sees as doomed to extinction).
** The end of Season 2 reveals the existence of ZONA, a safe zone established by the rich and powerful of America before it was overwhelmed by the zombies. Like La Reina, they intend to use the cure and their resources to rebuild society in their image.

** On ''Series/HeroesReborn2015'', BigBad Erica Kravid has foreseen the pending destruction of the Earth by a massive solar flare, and is taking steps to insure human survival by teleporting a select few into the distant future to rebuild the planet. Oh, and she's [[FantasticRacism only planning on saving humans]]; any [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividuals Evos]] taken along are only being taken so that their powers can be harvested and controlled artificially in order to aid in the rebuilding process.

** The Institute in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' are a mysterious cabal of scientists descended from the staff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. They see the post-apocalyptic world as a chaotic and uncivilised mess that's beyond saving, so they plan to [[spoiler:build a brand new society underground]]. Unfortunately, they're a lot of the reason ''why'' the Commonwealth is a mess, as they [[spoiler:kidnap people and replace them with [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot synth copies]] so they can steal resources from starving wastelanders, murder anyone who finds pre-war technology, sabotage the rise of any attempt by wastelanders to become organised (as this would threaten the Insitute's power) and even created the Commonwealth's super mutants through their cruel experiments]]. They're all for advancing humanity for the greater good, [[ItsAllAboutMe just as long as it's]] ''[[ItsAllAboutMe their]]'' [[ItsAllAboutMe idea of the greater good]] - anything else, they'll otherwise happily smother in the cradle.

* DoctorDoom believes to the very core of his being that what he's doing [[KnightTemplar is right]]. He's looked in the future (His words) and only saw one potential future where everything ends up well, and that's under his reign, as per Doomwar.
