* Both the {{Big Bad}}s in ''VideoGame/AzureStrikerGunvolt'' want the power of [[ShrinkingViolet Joule's]] Septima, [[MagicMusic the Muse]] in order to achieve what they believe is best for the world. [[AffablyEvil Nova]] wishes to use her power to police all the [[PsychicPowers Adepts]] in the world to prevent them from ever rising up against humanity and destroying the planet, which nearly happened [[AllThereInTheManual in the backstory]], and ensure permament peace and justice. [[spoiler:[[SuperSupremacist Zonda]]]] wants to use her power [[spoiler:to [[AmplifierArtifact amplify the powers of Adepts worldwide]] so they can annihilate humanity for all the [[FantasticRacism crimes and oppression they've heaped on their kind]], creating an Adept-only utopia]].

** In [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Infinite]], we have Zachary Hale Comstock and his vision of creating his own heaven in the form of Columbia. And that's nothing compared to what [[OmnicidalManiac he wants to do]] to the "Sodom Below"....

** In [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Infinite]], ''[[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite Infinite]]'', we have Zachary Hale Comstock and his vision of creating his own heaven in the form of Columbia. And while he manages to do it, it's while he becomes the "Prophet" that turns into a godlike figure for the entire town. Plus, it's also while talking about the "white man's burden" and how oppression blacks, Irish, and all other minorities is completely and totally justified. And that's nothing compared to what [[OmnicidalManiac he wants to do]] to the "Sodom Below"....Below".

* ''WhateleyUniverse'': Several, with [[WellIntentionedExtremist Dr Diabolik]] being the most prominent. In seeking his goal of human space migration, intelligence increase, and extended lifespan, he has killed over 17,000 people (most inadvertently as a side effect of his actions, but he is not at all bothered by simply killing opponents when needed).

** Lilith was also envisioned as one of these. She genuinely believes that she is acting in the better of her species (Demons), and is looking to save them from their (literally) hellish existence. [[spoiler:She even willingly allows Sam to kill her, knowing that it will release Lucifer, whom she believes will as the ruler of the universe will create Paradise. She even tells a Mook that they are going to "save the world". Unfortunately for her, Lucifer despises Demons and seeks to destroy them and humans]].

* "Waiting for The Worms" from Music/PinkFloyd's ''Music/TheWall'' has Pink, now a neo-Nazi dictatorial figure set out his vision of how to get Britain to rule again, involving sending "our colored cousins home again" and bringing back the "FinalSolution to strengthen the strain."

* [[ComicBook/RasAlGhul Ra's al-Ghul]] is both Franchise/{{Batman}}'s most formidable enemy and the most visionary one. He sees humanity as a blight on Earth, and that the population needs to be culled for the good of the planet. Imagine someone taking DavidAttenborough's "controlling the population to allow the survival of the environment" quote and taking it to its extreme conclusion.

* The ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' tend to be rife with these villains as {{Big Bad}}s. [[spoiler:Yggdrassil]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' ([[spoiler:end FantasticRacism and the repeating magitek wars by keeping the world in MedievalStasis while he ascends all the half-elves into 'angels' using [[PoweredByAForsakenChild exspheres]]]]) and [[spoiler:Dorian General Grants]] from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' ([[spoiler:'rescue' a world that is sickeningly dependent on BecauseDestinySaysSo from its eventual destruction by replacing everything in said world with perfect replicas that cannot be predicted in the planet's destiny]]).

* In the Franchise/{{Neopets}} universe, a character named Xandra wants to rule Neopia (the world of Neopets) and have it run by its inhabitants, because she thinks the world's Faeries aren't so reliable. [[spoiler:To do this she went as far as to [[TakenForGranite turn them to stone]], accidentally unleashed hordes of shadowy creatures, [[TakenForGranite turn most of the heroes to stone]], and [[ColonyDrop sent the Faeries' kingdom crashing to the ground]].]]

* On ''Series/TheExpanse'', TheConspiracy behind the protomolecule has grand designs:
** They started researching it because they discovered that Phoebe was in fact an extrasolar object that would have hit Earth two billion years in the past. The only reason humanity ''exists'' is because Phoebe was caught by Saturn's gravity the interstellar equivalent of a PocketProtector.
-->'''Dresden''': [[WellIntentionedExtremist Without this work]], humanity will be left unarmed, ignorant, vulnerable, to an enemy who's already fired the first shot.
** Their chief researcher is an EvilutionaryBiologist who seems even more interested in it because it's ImportedAlienPhlebotinum; JustThinkOfThePotential!
-->'''Dresden''': We become [[MasterofYourDomain our own gods]]. Imagine human beings able to live in hard vacuum without a suit, or under the crushing atmosphere of a gas giant. Or able to hibernate long enough to travel to the stars.

* WordOfGod explicitly describes ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'''s version of VandalSavage as this. As he outlines his own motives in the first season finale, he (and [[LegionOfDoom the Light]], the organization he founded) intends to make Earth the dominant power in the galaxy by means of implenenting an extreme [[TheSocialDarwinist survival of the fittest philosophy]] and opposes the Justice League because he feels they promote stagnation. In contrast to the rest of the Light, Klarion is in it ForTheEvulz.
