* 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]].

* Lance from ''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.

** Dr. Eggman is another case: the little amount of details revealed about what exactly his Eggman Empire is mentions something about robots and scientists being high-class citizens. In addition, it is heavily implied that his world domination schemes stemmed from the fact that his grandfather was arrested by GUN, something he perceived as an injustice. He also sucks enough power so the world he conquers won't be destroyed.
** [[spoiler:Merlina/The Dark Queen]] from ''[[VideoGame/SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Black Knight]]'' may qualify. Why unleash hordes of monsters on the kingdom, including [[spoiler:a demonic doppelganger of King Arthur]]? To keep the [[spoiler:terrible ending of Camelot as we know it]] from happening. This particular villain is so sympathetic that Sonic appears [[spoiler:to have no hard feelings]] after it's over.

** ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'''s Team Magma and Aqua both believe that they'll be doing good for the world by flooding it/drying it out. Despite their devotion to the cause, in the end, [[spoiler:they awaken Hoenn's OlympusMons, who do exactly what they want... [[GoneHorriblyRight too well]], and they [[HeelFaceTurn realize their mistake]].]]
** ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl'''s Team Galactic is a bit lower in the "well-intentioned" department. Their leader, Cyrus, seeks to control the OlympusMons of the area and [[spoiler:make them destroy and remake reality in his image.]] He cites [[InYourNatureToDestroyYourselves human emotion being the catalyst for conflict]] as the main reason for this, although once you beat him, he [[{{Hypocrite}} turns out to be]] NotSoStoic. Once you defeat certain grunts, they start to question what Cyrus is even doing. It can be assumed that, before, they just liked having authority enough to not question why.
** [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Team Plasma]], and especially their leader, N, believes that all relationships between Pokémon and humans are abusive, and they want everyone in Unova to release their 'mons. [[spoiler:Except, it's all a front. Team Plasma is actually the UnwittingPawn of the inhuman Ghetsis Harmonia, who wants humans separated from their Pokémon so he can conquer them easily. [[KnightTemplar N in particular]], since Ghetsis [[TykeBomb raised him with a bunch of 'mons that had been abused by their trainers, deluding him into thinking that's the only kind of relationship possible with them.]] Although N still plans to free all Pokemon from their Trainers, he does acknowledge that there are Trainers who treat their Pokemon well, and that he wouldn't have to go through with the plan if more Trainers could be like that.]]

** [[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, due to the world's limited resources and humanity's overpopulation.]]

Her goal is to summon Rayquaza in order to prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt in the form of a massive meteor on a collision course with the planet; her method, however, involves joining Team Magma/Aqua and helping them to unleash Primal Groudon/Kyogre in order to force Rayquaza to respond to the resultant weather crisis. When the player foils that plan, she instead starts stealing Key Stones from a large number of holders, including from the Rival (Brendan/May) and Archie/Maxie, in order to summon Rayquaza manually.]]

* Nessiah of ''YggdraUnion'', who has been manipulating a large chunk of the human population in order to [[spoiler:gather the necessary magical power to free himself and go fight Asgard. Asgard is, by this point, everything a good dystopia ought to be -- and has been this way since its creation, as a world of absolute order that takes a rather... ''militant'' approach to anything that seems to fall outside of its regulations, such as people like Nessiah, who was brutalized and exiled for protesting that he didn't want to fight and die in Ragnarok. The place also so happens to be run by series BigBad Hector]].
** Gulcasa is also explicitly revealed to be one of these in ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion''. LifeIsntFair, poverty is a serious problem, and innocent people are suffering everywhere. His solution to this supposedly unchangeable situation? Screw the system -- if the world at large is Doing It Wrong, all he has to do is take the damn place over and run it himself. (And according to ''YggdraUnison'', the world really would be a better place with Gulcasa ruling it.)
