A character who is a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds can be very high up on the SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat and/or SlidingScaleOfVillainEffectiveness while being very low on the SlidingScaleOfAntagonistVileness. Rather than hatred, the audience feels pity for this villain and wants to see them stopped so they don't cause anymore destruction or loss of life. If the WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds has to be killed to stop his destruction spree, it makes for prime AlasPoorVillain material especially if he [[DyingAsYourself regains his sanity as he's dying]].

May overlap with DeathSeeker, if they want to die, but intend to [[TakingYouWithMe make sure]] that [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum everyone else goes first]]. Likely to be a DracoInLeatherPants for some of the audience.

audience. Compare SympatheticSentientWeapon when they're in employ of someone/some group rather than acting on their own.

This is a character with {{omnicidal|Maniac}} and/or AxCrazy tendencies who wants to destroy everything and everyone in the story, and is suddenly in a position to do so (on a small or large scale); but in contrast to other characters, he/she has some plausible, outright tragic reason to do so. In some cases, the other characters outright sympathize with this one (whether or not the audience does too is out of the equation here), all the while accepting that they must be stopped. Sometimes, the character is even portrayed as ''likeable'', just... not with the right mindset.

This trope is less about the SlidingScaleOfVillainThreat and more about how much a character has been broken -- physically, mentally, and emotionally -- before they finally snap and blame the whole world for all the crap they has been through. Of course, they must crack and pose a sudden threat of ''some'' sort, to the characters and/or the setting. And [[TheDogBitesBack some of them]] ''do'' [[SpannerInTheWorks get their]] [[WhosLaughingNow finger on the nuke trigger]]. In a few extreme cases, [[PersonOfMassDestruction they themselves are the nuke]].
