* Lance from ''VideoGame/EpicBattleFantasy'', though only in the second game. After the destruction of Undead Goku in the first game, Lance gathers an unstoppable army and begins conquering the world, so the world can be united under one rule and world peace can exist. A spin-off game, ''Bullet Heaven 2'', reveals that he also plans on destroying all wildlife and plants because he blames nature for {{Random Encounter}}s.

* Tracer Tong from ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' is one, and you can choose to join him and ultimately destroy all global communication, thus plunging the world into a new Dark Age. He fancies this rather than the modern world with its perfidious and power-hungry secret societies, dehumanising technical innovations, and devastating artificial plagues (apparently, they are worse than the natural plagues that haunted the medieval world).
** The [[KnightTemplar Templars]] from the sequel abhor all front-edge technology, with nanoaugmentation being the worst of it all, and strive for a devout, theocratic society. If you help them establish one, they [[spoiler:lynch you for being a receptacle of said infernal nanotech and for generally being of [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no use to them]].]]
** Omars - a faction of cyborgs with a HiveMind regard themselves as the next stage of human evolution, and you can help them inherit the planet by removing all the other factions' leaders. After the inevitable wars that result, they are the only faction that is able to survive in the wastelands that was once Earth.



** The Grey Wardens themselves. They dedicate their life to fight the Blight, and they make it clear from the moment you join them that they (and therefore, you) will do ''anything'' that can further their goal. Examples of things you may have to do: [[spoiler:interfere in dwarven politics and put a king in charge of Orzammar, in order for the dwarves to join you; overthrow and kill the current king of Fereldan, because he's against you (and a bastard, though); accept the [[NukeEm obliteration]] of the Circle of Mages by Templars, in exchange for the latter helping you; killing a ''child'' possessed by a demon, in order to save a noble, and possibly, to get him on your side...]] The list goes on.

The order is explicitly said to [[TheUnfettered be willing and allowed to do anything to stop the darkspawn]], including conscripting people into the Wardens and using [[BloodMagic blood magic, which for everyone else carries an instant death sentence]], because the alternative is basically TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.



*** The Qunari are this in general: sure, they give everyone a job and have a generally "equal" society, but they rule by conquest, assign jobs with no regard for personal happiness, practice re-education and brainwashing with chemical agents, and if they come to where you live, you get a simple choice: join up or die. And if you're a mage, you're ''really'' in for it.



** The Forerunners created the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''s which wiped out all sentient life in the galaxy, in order to eliminate the Flood. Afterwards, they then reseeded all sentient life in the galaxy, while leaving many of their artifacts for Humanity to salvage, so they can take the Mantle of Responsibility.

* [[KnightTemplar Namm]], the angelic god of Justice and Law from the ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' series, just wants to keep the universe from being made the plaything of sociopathic god-sized vortexes of hate, violence and [[BodyHorror Squick]], which is something that has a very real risk of happening without someone like taking a stand. Casualties of his efforts go well beyond demons to [[KarmaMeter evil-aligned]] mortals, neutral-aligned people who [[WithUsOrAgainstUs don't take a side]], anyone who isn't an angel and gets near some of his [[HolierThanThou more zealous followers]], and even [[spoiler:another [[GodOfGood angelic deity]]]] who Namm didn't think was supporting the cause enough.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has Ulfric Stormcloak, who kills (arguably murders) the High King in a duel 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 [[BlackAndGrayMorality everyone agrees are pure evil]]. (Complicating matters is that one can find evidence that the Thalmor [[spoiler:tortured and brainwashed Ulfric, then set him free to a start a civil war in order to further weaken the Empire]].

*** [[RebelLeader
Ulfric Stormcloak, Stormcloak]], who kills (arguably murders) the High King in a duel 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 [[BlackAndGrayMorality everyone agrees are pure evil]]. (Complicating matters is that one can find evidence that the Thalmor [[spoiler:tortured and brainwashed Ulfric, then set him free to a start a civil war in order to further weaken the Empire]].Empire]].
*** Speaking of the Thalmor, they are an extremist [[OurElvesAreBetter Altmeri]] religious sect that militarized into a StateSec. They play up the old Altmeri religious belief that the creation of the mortal world (Mundus) was a cruel trick played by a JerkassGod on their divine ancestors, which forced them to experience mortal suffering and death. They believe that if they can [[OmnicidalManiac unmake Mundus]], it will [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence return them to a state of pre-creation divinity]]. Unfortunately, [[FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence the very idea of Men]] inherently stabilizes the Mundus, and erasing this idea requires eliminating the DeityOfHumanOrigin, Talos. By [[IllegalReligion banning his worship]], they are hoping to [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly weaken]] and eventually [[KillTheGod eliminate]] him, allowing them to act on their plans to unmake the world. If (and that is a big "if") they were to actually succeed in this plan, there is some evidence that they may be correct and the souls of mortals would return to a state of pre-creation divinity, free from all the mortal suffering, loss, and limitation of Mundus. There is also supporting evidence that this is ''impossible'', as due to the actions of Lorkhan (the aforementioned Jerkass God), there can presumably never again be the true stasis of pre-creation again. There is also the belief that this state of divinity (unchanging stasis) is [[HellOfAheaven actually the "prison"]], and Mundus was the escape from that, which would make them more of a NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist.

** In Legion, it's shown that the Naaru have shades of this. Xe'ra (the Prime Naaru) tries to FORCE the Light on Illidan so he can lead the Army of the Light, despite his objections ("I've traded my freedom for power before!")...it doesn't go well for her.

* Every villain (at any point) in ''[[ArTonelico Ar Tonelico 2]]'', as well as some of your party. A big part of [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething Cloche]]'s character development revolves around trying to reconcile her idealism with the extreme measures she supports as a government figurehead.

* In ''VideoGame/EVOSearchForEden'', while the protagonist's main goal is to reach Eden, he also runs into numerous creatures that have evolved way beyond what they should be using mysterious Crystals. While it's hinted at throughout the game, a secret scene in the final area and the ending reveal that the Crystals were created by [[spoiler:a pair of Martians who genuinely thought the Crystals would advance Earth society to match their own. When they realize that their plan horribly backfired and Crystal users started killing and subjugating lesser species, they come to regret their actions and apologize]].
