* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Vivia turns to piracy despite the damage this might bring to the Twenty Years Truce and Nubrevna's reputation because her people ''need to eat'', no matter where the food comes from.

* 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. He could also just be really, really crazy, but the people who knew him best stick with this one.

* 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]].

** He ''definitely'' has a point. The gods ''are'' selfish and most of them don't care about their children or even each other. Even Percy thinks he has a point, and he hates Luke with a passion for the majority of the series. Unfortunately, Luke's methods include siding with a Titan that's much worse than the gods, and the war he helps start results in many demigod deaths. (Although it's debatable as to whether or not Luke was completely in control of himseld; remember, Kronos was able to manipulate an actual ''god''.
