* One specific Variant of ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'' isn't AxCrazy for AxCrazy's sake: [[TheHeavy Chris Walker]], TheDreaded even by other Variants. His implacable carnage in the asylum is a twisted sort of military damage control aimed at [[spoiler:keeping [[OurGhostsAreDifferent the Walrider]] contained]]. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Wuite a selfless, ambitious and important objective]] compared to the other lunatics that threaten Miles and Waylon.

* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' wants to put an end to the war. [[spoiler:Her means of doing so involve killing ''all'' Benders with her machines. Interestingly enough, the Avatar universe would later get a [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra villain who also wants to get rid of Benders]], but without the bloodshed.]]

* In ''SilentHill3'', the pious Claudia wants to invoke Paradise to destroy all the wrongs of the world. [[spoiler:Too bad she does this by trying to force the reincarnation of her childhood friend to give birth to a god whose influence turns the resort town in a nightmarish realm of darkness and decay. This same god requires hatred to be born, so Claudia has Heather's father killed. "Paradise", indeed!]]

*** The sad thing is this plan would ultimately succeed, if ''SilentHill'' mythology is to be believed. The innocent aren't dragged into the nightmare realm, and seem generally happy.

* Republic players in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' encounter the Justicars, a bunch of ex-military types. They return to Coruscant after the war and take over one of the sections that's suffered pretty badly and fallen into criminal control, announcing that they intend to clean the place up. The Republic is pretty thrilled by this at first... until they realize that when the Justicars say "clean the place up" they also mean "install martial law and keep the Republic itself out, violently if necessary".

** Imperial players come across [[spoiler:Revan]], who's taken over a Rakata space station with the intent of destroying the Empire (from a neutral point of view, they're the bad guys; [[BlackAndGrayMorality the Republic has issues, but the Empire is worse]]) by sending droids to murder everyone with Sith heritage, over 97% of the Imperial population. Republic players later meet with his Force ghost, who basically says, "Yeah, I went crazy."

* [[spoiler:Luc]] in ''SuikodenIII''. If he succeeded in [[spoiler:destroying the True Wind Rune]], the Grasslands would be destroyed, killing a million people. But, hey, if it keeps [[spoiler:the True Runes from eventually letting humanity die off, and keeps the gray, stagnant world]] from happening, then it's good, right?

** [[spoiler:Sialeeds]] in ''VideoGame/SuikodenV''. [[spoiler:The royal family that she belongs to was about to recover from a bloody SuccessionCrisis that plagued previous generations; but the corrupt nobles, who had a hand in said crisis, used all their clout to plunge the Queendom of Falena into another bloody war. To save her land from plunging into another crisis, she tried to take matters into her own hands, even betraying her own nephew, the prince, in the process.]]

** [[spoiler: Lysandre]], the leader of [[VideoGame/PokemonXandY Team Flare]] wants to put an end to war and "make the world beautiful". Seems like a noble enough goal... [[spoiler:until its revealed that his method of doing so involves reactivating an ancient super-weapon to destroy all humans and Pokemon who aren't a part of Team Flare.]]

* TheElderScrollsVSkyrim has Ulfric Stormcloak, who kills (arguably murders) the High King in order to lead Skyrim into seceding from the Empire- not out of any particular animosity, but because he doesn't think the Empire is willing enough to fight [[ANaziByAnyOtherName the Thalmor]], who practically everyone agrees are pure evil.

** The true villain of ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', [[spoiler:Hugh Darrow]], is very much well-intentioned in his wish for [[spoiler:the people to be free from augmentations and the corporations who misuse them]]... Only issue is that he tried to get the point across with mass murder. [[Spoiler:as with the Illuminati above, you can go with Hugh Darrow's message in the end, in a toned down, less extreme take on his idealogy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The villains of the ''Franchise/{{DeusEx}}'' franchise could write entire paragraphs about being this. Because of the setting's realistic GreyAndGrayMorality, most villains got a very decent point, especially because of the CrapsackWorld they inhabit.
** The [[spoiler:Illuminati]] are a good example: They have their fingers in pretty much everything and will willingly kill anyone who upsets the balance they are trying to establish in the world... But as the first game reveals, without them, society would crash and burn in a spectacular manner. They do many horrible things; but they do it all to protect humanity. In fact, in ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'', [[spoiler:one of the ending choices is going along with the Illuminati's plan, which is to regulate augmentations at least somewhat, to make sure they aren't misused. For the player, who've seen a lot of augmentations used wrong throughout the game, this might be a compelling choice.]]
