* [[spoiler:Anaria]] from ''Literature/TheGuardians'' decided that the best way to end a war was to slaughter one of the armies in its entirety. After that, she decided that she was thinking too small and needed to apply her idea to the entire planet, until the only people left alive were the ones who agreed with each other. But don't worry, she'll still respect free will. She'll just make sure that humans have no other options except to choose peace, joy, and love.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''The R Document'' by Irving Wallace, Attorney General Chris Collins supports the 35th Amendment which would give the FBI more power to handle growing crime in the United States. The 35th is being pushed by Vernon Tynan, head of the FBI. But with some allies, Chris discovers that as soon as the 35th is passed, Tynan will push through the R Document (as in "reconstruction") which will suspend the Bill of Rights and allow martial law to rule over the nation. At first, Collins believes Tynan is being driven by the power he would get as the head of new law enforcement. However, Collins soon comes to more chilling conclusion that Tynan truly believes the only way to "save" the country is to turn America into a police state.

* In the ''Literature/DreambloodDuology'', Eninket doesn't actually want to live forever and wage war until the world is united under his rule, he just sees it as the only way peace is actually possible.

* Captain Nemo, the AntiHero who first appears in TwentyThousandLeaguesUnderTheSea, can be said to have had genuine good intentions that made him a sympathetic character. The deaths of his family gave him a hatred of oppressive governments (especially imperialism) and a genuine concern for innocent life. Still, as one character put it, it was not his right to judge nations the way he did, via the vigilante actions he took to punish them for what he saw as injustice.

* Akasha in ''TheVampireChronicles'' wants to create a peaceful world by killing almost all males.
* The Birds of Prey from ''ThePrincess99'' commit brutal murders against wizards through the entire book. But then you consider that they are trying to give Nons (non-magical people) civil rights in a world that considers them lower than animals. This doesn't excuse what they did to [[spoiler:Axel]].
