* Nita from ''Literature/{{Allegiant}}''. [[spoiler:She wants to stop the Bureau from further discriminating against the genetically damaged like herself (especially when the reader finds out how extreme they, or rather just David, go to uphold it), though her method to do it isn't nice to say the least. She even designs a bomb with Four which indirectly causes Uriah's brain damage and eventual death]].

* The [[UsefulNotes/FurryFandom furry]] novel ''Otters in Space'' makes this a slightly odd ZigZaggedTrope as more of the antagonist's intentions are revealed. In this universe, cats are the victims of FantasticRacism. The villain, a cat, is willing to have the protagonist killed because [[HeKnowsTooMuch she knows too much]] about her plans, and appears to have had someone disappeared before. [[spoiler:But she was actually working with the disappeared employee, and covering for her so they can stay in business together. But that business is embezzlement and smuggling people. But they're actually sending them to an UndergroundRailroad colony on Mars. But the colony is full of also-racist for-profit jerks. But the villain was trying to protect the entire planet full of people by sending them the money she was embezzling. In the end, she just ends up taking the fall and being arrested for corruption, while the colony might have to reconsider its admissions standards.]]

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheChathrandVoyage''. [[EvilSorcerer Arunis]] - arguably the most dangerous of the series BigBadEnsemble - claims at one point that the he's just trying to unify the world under his control for the benefit of mankind when trying to talk [[TheProtagonist Pazel]] onto his side. Pazel doesn't buy it, pointing out that Arunis's methods are so horrific that he can't imagine any potential good would outweigh them, and he's right. [[spoiler: Arunis doesn't give a damn about the world, and in fact is trying to wipe out humanity in order to convince the local Gods of Evil to elevate him as their newest member. The WellIntentionedExtremist bit was all lies]].

* Help Earth in the ''Literature/CHERUBSeries'' is a similar eco terroist group.
* [[spoiler:Kurda Smahlt]] of ''TheSagaOfDarrenShan'' does this when [[spoiler:he plans to use the night of his investiture as the night of the Vampaneze invasion and take-over of Vampire Mountain, all in order to bring the two warring clans together, even killing one of his best friends in the process. He is found out and stopped, though. If Darren hadn't found out about the plan, however, chances are that the whole War of the Scars would've been averted]].
