** The Changelings built the Dominion and invaded the Alpha Quadrant because it was the only way they could impose their idea of true "order" on the Galaxy. Besides their continuing overreaction to ancient xenophobia and prejudice against them.

** It could be argued that the Church in the 51st/52nd century is composed of these. Bishop Octavian would be a good example.
*** And by their own lights, the Silence is probably this. It's revealed they were trying to prevent another Time War happening by the Time Lords returning while an army of Monsters is waiting round Trenzalore.

** The Series 9 finale three-parter reveals that the FinalBoss, [[spoiler: the Time Lords (led by Rassilon)]], are desperate to figure out a prophecy about The Hybrid, which is supposedly a half-Time Lord half-Dalek warrior that may be the universe's ruin. To accomplish this, they arrange for the Doctor to be imprisoned and sadistically tortured until he tells them everything he knows. Alas, on the way to that [[spoiler: Clara Oswald is Killed Off For Real in a Senseless Sacrifice]], which combined with the torture [[SanitySlippage does a number on the Doctor's sanity]]. All he really wants once he's escaped and confronted his enemies is [[spoiler: to have her back and give her a nice safe life]]...but that requires him to become TheUnfettered and violate a fixed point in time, threatening the entirety of space and time. He is convinced to return to his best self, but it means giving up his TragicDream (and more besides).

[[spoiler:Lincoln]] believes his claim is a sincere one, despite the two being enemies for half a season as well as all of the evil acts that [[spoiler:Hive]] committed.

** HRG, who worked both for aforementioned Company (see above), which captured people with special abilities, and with Nathan, who later started a government initiative with a near identical agenda but with the goal of "curing" people of their abilities. [[spoiler: Like Nathan, he protects their super-powered daughter, Claire, from this government initiative and before that, hid her from The Company when she started manifesting her powers.]]

** And, for the hat trick, "The Hunter", aka Emle Danko: a cold hearted son of a bitch who nevertheless sees himself as in the right, as he feels that the evolved humans are too dangerous to exist. And, given people like Linderman, Arthur, Adam, Sylar, Maury, Candice, Doyle, Flint, and the various others who've appeared in the show and in the graphic novels, it's easy to see how he arrived at this misguided viewpoint.
** Both Angela, who started the Company to protect her people, and Nathan, who started the whole "round them up" program.
** What about Samuel and Claire? Samuel wants to make TheReveal at the cost of normal human life and even at the cost of some specials in order to inspire non-specials into fear so that the special can use this intimidation to live freely in the acknowledgement of their power...While Claire makes TheReveal once Samuel's nasty ways are avoided with no consideration whatosever whether it would actually be better overall...It's an improvement so far as no more effort will be made to hide their powers. Indeed, she even acknowledges what her father said, "People won't change."

* ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'':
** Yggdrasil is seen as this post-episode 19, as they are trying to prevent the Helheim Forest from over taking the world. The following episodes go on to reveal the lengths they're willing to go to to stop this from happening ([[spoiler:which goes up to and including the worst-case-scenario of making {{transformation trinket}}s to ensure the survival of a billion people then killing off the other six]]) but soon after it's revealed that ''no one'' is actually well-intentioned. A good chunk of Yggdrasil don't care about the ends ([[DragonWithAnAgenda their own goals are more important]]) and the only one who ''does'' care is deeply upset with the means and latches onto a more optimistic option the first chance he gets... [[spoiler:which gets him overthrown by the former]].
** After Yggdrasil's done and over with, [[spoiler:along with a group of people who control Helheim Forest]], a victim of their extremism steps in and declares his vow to destroy the world. When Kouta confronts him in the final battle, he points out that his experience taught him that the strong hurt the weak because they lost their compassion in the process of being strong. His conclusion? Kill all of humanity and replace it with his own kind of race, one that wouldn't trade compassion for strength. Kouta knows where he's coming from, but believes he's going about it the wrong way.



*** Adam Monroe also counts, as after 400 years of seeing mankind's hatred, bigotry, ignorance, and warlike nature, he's decided that the best way to save the world is to wipe out most of humanity with a virus and start over with the "worthy" survivors. Again, a clear homage of sorts to Ras Al Ghul/Apocalypse, as, like them, Adam genuinely wants to help people, he's just become so warped and crazy due to his long life and powers that he feels that he's got the right to play god.

* The best example from ''Series/{{OZ}}'' would be Kareem Said. He blew up a white-owned business in a black neighborhood as a protest against racism. During the course of the series, he slides back and forth between this and ItsAllAboutMe, as some of his crusades seem less about ending the racism than highlighting it (to the detriment of those he's trying to help).
** A number of the inmates ''claim'' to be this, but are really just interested in themselves. Adebisi, Schillinger, and Kirk are probably the best examples. Governor Devlin is the same, pretending to care about saving money for the state and the well being of the prisoners but really just wanting to get re-elected.
** Despite their intense antipathy towards each other, both Tim [=McManus=] and Martin Querns are this in different ways. [=McManus=] is willing to put up with disrespect and extra freedom to try and change the inmates for the better. Querns is willing to put up with drug use, anarchy, and racism in exchange for zero violence.

* ''Mystery Diners'' on the Creator/FoodNetwork, a show that features restaurant owners or managers calling in a surveillance team to detect problems in their restaurant, occasionally has this as the issue in question, such as with a manager that used to be a drill sergeant; the problem is resolved rather easily in the end.
