* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'':
** [[spoiler: Mayor Lionheart]] is revealed to be the one responsible for organizing the kidnapping of the missing animals. However, he was only doing so because they were [[HatePlague going savage]], and he was trying to avoid both loss of life and a mass panic. At the end of the movie, he admits what he did was wrong and he regrets it, but still says it was "doing the wrong thing for the right reason".
** [[spoiler: Assistant Mayor Bellwether]], the true BigBad, also tries to present themselves as this, saying they are trying to unite the city [[GenghisGambit against the threat of savage predators]]. Ultimately subverted, however, as their clear [[FantasticRacism prejudice towards predators]] and evil gloating over their plans make it clear they're just another power-crazed bigot.

* ''Film/YoureNext'':
** Of all the [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremists,]] [[spoiler:Crispian]] has gotta be one of the worst, maybe even ''the'' worst! He conspires with [[spoiler:his brother Felix and the latter's girlfriend Zee]] to hire three killers to slaughter the rest of their family [[spoiler:to collect their inheritance]], part of which includes [[spoiler:paying for his girlfriend Erin's college tuition at the university Crispian teaches at.]] However, unbeknownst to him, [[spoiler:[[CrazySurvivalist Erin was raised in a survivalist camp back in her homeland Australia]] and tried unsuccessfully to defend the rest of the family, but managed to kill the 3 killers, along with Felix and Zee when she discovered [[TheMole their involvement.]] Understandably, Erin was shocked and disgusted by Crispian's actions, as despite Crispian most likely ordering the killers not to kill Erin (since she didn't want to tell Felix about her past and skills) and part of the family's inheritance would go to Erin's tuition, she would never forgive him throwing away his own family for her, or doing any of the horrible acts he committed. So she killed him. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Unfortunately, that got her wounded by a cop who was killed by her trap meant for the killers, and she ruined any chance of proving that Crispian, Felix and Zee were responsible for the murders of their entire family.]]]]

* ''Film/TheMummyTrilogy'': Ardeth Bey from part one. He and his organization, the Medjai, have been killing innocent people to prevent them from discovering and awakening [[HumanoidAbomination Imhotep]] for centuries- he even tells Evie to her face that preventing Imhotep's resurrection fully justifies the killing of innocents.

** In the sequel, ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', Ultron wants humanity to evolve so that it'll cut all that "war" stuff out and unite to fend off the new threats coming from space - unfortunately, that means throwing apocalypses at them to toughen them up (and killing the Avengers, who he perceives as useless and who'd probably disapprove). At least, that's his goal ''initially''. Once the heroes [[spoiler:steal his MagnumOpus body - the Vision - from him]], [[MotiveDecay he's angry enough to drop that]] [[OmnicidalManiac and try a different plan.]]
* ''Film/KingsmanTheSecretService'': The [[BigBad BigBad]] concludes that existing efforts to fix global warming are hopeless, so he decides a simpler solution is to brainwash everyone to kill each other and "cull" the global population to a more manageable number.

* ''Film/{{Thor}}'': Loki'ss actions are ultimately for the good of Asgard, but he goes just a ''bit'' too far. Everything he does from the middle of the movie on are to show that he's worthy of his father's trust and every bit the equal of Thor. Granted that it overlaps with being a little AxCrazy, because his plan for doing this involves ''genocide.'' (Of enemies, but still.) And he goes even further in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. He thinks the humans must be enslaved in order to bring peace to them, and he doesn't mind to build his empire on thousands of corpses.

* In ''Film/MurderAt1600,'' it turns out the reason behind the entire murder plot was [[spoiler: National Security Advisor Alvin Jordan wanted to force the President to resign because he felt the President was too weak in not going to war with North Korea over a hostage situation and that war was the only way to protect the nation.]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Joran''']]: I think President Teddy Roosevelt said it best: "If I must choose between righteousness and peace, I choose righteousness."
