** Because the [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed world is constantly being in danger by Evil]], and the fact that Good isn't proactive about stopping said evil, all the people who are thoroughly (and unanimously) fed-up with the [[ForeverWar neverending war of Good and Evil]] began enlisting the help of neutral-aligned wizards to conjure dimensional gateways to realms free of such endless conflict. There, the people started their new lives truly free of such worry.

* '''Parodied''': It should be clear that the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil as a moral imperative or somehow good, as opposed to a fact of nature we are stuck with or the best we can do, screams out for parody.

*** ... consequently, More Evil introduced due to the imbalance is counterproductive to the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil. The Balance can't win.

** Evil and Good are forced to coexist, which means they're in almost constant conflict. After thousands of years of this, the land the work takes place in is a miserable, ruined, wasteland, with disgusted and weary heroes battling it out with equally disgusted and weary villains. Neither can wipe the other out, no one can actually accomplish anything constructive, and everyone's pretty unhappy.
*** The above would lead to the [[EvilVersusOblivion forces of Oblivion]] gaining clout when it comes to [[PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery ending the pain of conflict]] by aiming towards [[OmnicidalNeutral destroying both sides]] by all means necessary.
