* [[spoiler:Macha the Owl Witch]] from ''WesternAnimation/SongOfTheSea'' is revealed to be this. [[spoiler:She truly believes she's helping the magical beings of the world by stealing all their emotions, turning them to stone. Since turbulent emotions bring pain and grief, she thinks she's easing their suffering. When Ben released her feelings back to her, Macha has a HeelRealization moment, begs his forgiveness and tells him that she couldn't bear to see her son in such pain.]]

* ''Film/DeepBlueSea'': [[spoiler: Dr. Susan [=McAllister=]]] used illegal means to increase the sharks' brain sizes so she could use the hormones harvested from them to manufacture a cure for Alzheimer's disease, which her own father previously succumbed to. She's ultimately responsible for the deaths in the film, but her motives were altruistic, not based in greed or a desire for fame.

** ''Film/BlackPanther'': [[spoiler:Killmonger]] wants to use Wakandan's Vibranium reserves and technology to create a world where Black people will not suffer from racial oppression and neglect. Unfortunately for everyone involved, his plan involves usurping the throne and using his new authority to arm African minorities with Vibranium weapons so they can wage race wars against Western nations. This was actually addressed by T'Challa who admits that while [[spoiler:Killmonger's]] is right that Wakandans are obliged to help oppressed Blacks around the war, [[spoiler:Killmonger's]] methods are too extreme and hypocritical.

* ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'': HAL 9000 is only devoted to the mission at hand, and believes that Dave and Frank will jeopardize the mission by disconnecting HAL after lip-reading from them that they intend to do so if the AE-35 component does not fail as HAL has predicted. [[spoiler: It turns out this was do to a LogicBomb: he had been told to lie about the nature of the mission, which conflicted with his programming of providing clear and accessible information, which triggered his breakdown.]]

* ''Film/TenMurderIsland'': [[spoiler: Tom Hicks]]. Just [[spoiler: Tom Hicks]]. Everything he does is pretty much this trope to a T. How well-intentioned he is could probably be considered a case of YMMV, but for the most part he fits perfectly here.

** Waternoose from ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' is a father-like figure to Sulley and, his motto "We Scare Because We Care" is genuine, as he really does wish to maintain the Monster World through providing energy from children's screams. So, to this end, he has Randall build a horrifying machine that will suck the screams out of children and, [[EngineeredPublicConfession as he says to Sulley]], is willing to "kidnap a THOUSAND children before he lets the company die...and silence anyone who gets in my way!"
