* 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.

*[[spoiler: Brox]] in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached''. [[spoiler: Grunnel]] is frankly dazzled by his partner's ability to see the big picture, which is a trait no other Baravadan possesses, apparently. According to him, [[spoiler: Brox]] is the only person with enough vision to try to do something about the problem of having no more monsters to fight, rather than just sit around hoping for monsters to turn up, like every other skahs does.

* Judge Doom from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' made a surprisingly epic speech about his grand Earth-shaking vision of public freeways. His plan ''does'' require ToonTown to be wiped out first.

* ''Series/{{Timeless}}'': The founder and namesake of [[AncientConspiracy Rittenhouse]], David Rittenhouse, believed that the common people have no ability to rule themselves efficiently, and that democracy is therefore too chaotic, but also that monarchy is too selfish in nature to serve as a proper alternative. Therefore, in the view of himself and his followers, the only way to truly rule is to use democracy as a facade to placate the masses, while a select few wield power from the shadows.

He believes the Wild West represents freedom from government control, and he wants to keep it that way.

->'''Eddie:''' So that's why you killed Acme and Maroon, for this freeway? I don't get it.
->'''Doom:''' Of course not, you lack vision. But I see a place where people get off and on the freeway. On and off, off and on, all day and all night. Soon, where Toon Town once stood will be a string of gas stations, inexpensive motels, restaurants that serve rapidly prepared food. Tire salons, automobile dealerships, and wonderful, ''wonderful'' billboards reaching as far as the eye can see. My God, it'll be beautiful.
