* The Northern Water Tribe in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5942075/1/Reluctant-Hero Reluctant Hero]]'' tries to restore balance in the world and searches for the Avatar in order to fulfill this goal. When they find the teen, they abduct him - [[TheKindnapper while thinking they're rescuing him from the Fire Nation]] - basically imprison and force him to follow their customs, and consider wiping his memory clean from everything related to the Fire Nation in order to help him progress. Is that such a wonder that the kid escaped?

* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' and its sequels, it's revealed that Doctor Strange is this. Thanks to his unsurpassed skills as a master of [[TimeMaster Time Magic]] and as a {{Seer}}, he saw that in the vast majority of futures, humanity fell to Thanos, along with the rest of the universe. As a result, he set about weaponising the ForWantOfANail trope (he even quotes the original poem in chapter 80 when explaining himself, then asking how the Avengers thought he would have helped more, as just one more knight on the battlefield, or as a travelling blacksmith, there to replace the horseshoe) via extensive time travel and [[ManipulativeBastard epic scale personal manipulation]], to guide Earth to the best possible future, one where it can take on Thanos and win, shaping Harry into the tip of the spear. The measures he takes to ensure this happens, and the things he allows to happen lead to him sadly [[FallenHero reflecting that]] [[HeWhoFightsMonsters in many ways he is as much a monster as the creatures he fights]] in the sequel, ''Ghosts of the Past.'' His main redeeming features, such as they are, are that [[PetTheDog he does little kindnesses where he can]], he will not put anyone through something that he won't put himself through, his methods of shaping Harry into a soldier involve giving him a strong support system in the form of a loving FamilyOfChoice, and when he [[MyGreatestFailure fails]] [[spoiler: Rachel/Maddie]], he almost kills himself frantically rearranging the timeline to make amends and give her a happy ending.

* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'': In ''The Lunar Rebellion'', Ephor Swift Blade is essentially one such extremist who got his facts wrong. He truly, honestly believes that Celestia is a tyrant, that Nightmare Moon was a better leader who was banished unjustly and should be returned to power, and that Equestria would be genuinely better off as a Pegasus-run military dictatorship. He's wrong, of course, but even if he were right, that still doesn’t excuse [[spoiler: allying with [[BadPowersBadPeople warlocks and lunar cultists]], violently overthrowing other governments, and using BloodMagic to turn a fellow ephor into the Avatar of Nightmare Moon.]]

* According to the LemonyNarrator of [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], the canon version of Discord is an example of this, at least when compared to the "[[BlatantLies ultimate evil]]" of Celestia. Given she says this at the end of a chapter describing all that occurred during his Age of Chaos makes such a claim very questionable, especially when Celestia's regime doesn't seem to do anything as obviously destructive as his.

* [[Fanfic/PagesOfHarmony Pages of Harmony]] also portrays Twilight as this. All she seems to want is for Harmony to reign in Equestria.... which she plans to achieve through [[spoiler: performing torture and MindRape on her friends to extract their Elements, as well as anypony who gets in the way of her plans]].

* ''Fanfic/RainbowFactory'': The workers want to keep Cludsdale full of Rainbows, which are an important part of their society. [[spoiler:They do this by killing failed fliers, all of them children]]. Though depending on the version you are reading, there are hints that they have other reasons for [[spoiler: [[ANaziByAnyOtherName killing the "weaker" children...]]
* The ''FanFic/{{Asylum}}'' universe has Dr. Rose, Twilight's doctor who uses highly questionable methods to, but it is to make sure that no unicorn ever has to be "cured" by a Keratotomy[[note]]A procedure that lobotomizes unicorns by removing their horns and a good chunk of their brains[[/note]]. Or at least, that's what claims. Just like most thing in Asylum, it is hard to say if this is true or just a lie used to cover a much more sinister motive.
** Arguably Twilight as well, as she repeatedly uses manipulative tactics and other morally questionable actions that could harm her own friends, to try to prove herself right, but only because it's what she believes has to be done to save Equestria.

* In Fanfic/TheShroudedPath, [[spoiler: Vanitas]], the BigBad behind SilentHill, is responsible for the torture (and often death) of the people who enter the town. However, he honestly thinks he is doing the universe a favour by ridding it of those people's evil.
