* [[ObviouslyEvil Master Xehanort]] in ''[[KingdomHearts Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep]]'' is this. [[spoiler:He feels that the World's (yes, it is capitalized) light and darkness are out of balance, and seeks to forge the χ-blade to open Kingdom Hearts and create a new world where the two forces can be balanced once again. To that end, he almost killed one of his pupils after completely stripping his heart of all his darkness, and started another Keyblade War -- the last one of which almost destroyed the World completely.]]

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', it is very easy to pin the NOL as some sort of TheEmpire, with their totalitarian, iron-fisted rule and their law of 'anyone not obeying our rules are to be executed'...until you realize that if NOL didn't put up such an iron-fisted rule, the CrapsackWorld will plunge into further chaos, with many dangerous Ars Magus free for people to claim, with a high possibility of the claimer being psychomaniacs out to destroy the world. It may be a cruel method, and the NOL look like jerks doing their job, but they do try to make the world a better place to live in. However, the reason why NOL is easy to pin as an unabashed evil [[TheEmpire empire]] is the fact that, possibly, the whole organization is being manipulated by not one, but two over-the-top villains with high VillainSue caliber.

** 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.

** TheMaster, the [[BigBad villain]] of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}}'', wanted to safeguard humanity... by converting all pure humans into hardier super-mutants more able to survive the wasteland, and destroying those "impure" strains who could not be converted. He believed his atrocities were in the interest of the greater good... and if you prove to him that his plan couldn't work and they were actually for nothing, he commits suicide out of sorrow and remorse. Alternatively, you could join the Master if you believe he is right and have no proof to the contrary
** The Enclave in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' want to eliminate all mutants in the wasteland and create a safe environment for the rebuilding of humanity. The problem is that their plan involves killing 99% of humanity over a slight fluctuation in DNA, not just the actual mutants, so it's not entirely on the up and up. You can, however, set the scientist behind this plan straight on morality.
** Likewise, there's the Enclave in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''. They operate under the order of President Eden (who is exactly as evil as the Enclave in the old days) and [[TheDragon Colonel Autumn]], who is far more realistic and far less idealistic. The struggle between Eden and Autumn drive the last part of the game.

** The Institute in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}''. They want to bring progress and order to the Wasteland, and see themselves as humanity's future. Unfortunately, their methods include [[KillAndReplace replacing people with synth dopplegangers]] and treating the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots synths]] they create [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman as slaves]], not to mention a ''litany'' of unethical scientific experiments. Still, the player is free to join them, and may be especially tempted given that [[spoiler:the beloved son that the protagonist has been searching for all game for is now their leader]].

*** The second Defias Brotherhood formed in the Cataclysm expansion has similar motivations. It's revealed that the war in Northrend has driven the Kingdom of Stormwind into bankruptcy, and the already neglected region of Westfall has been overrun by mobs of homeless citizens. While the farmers do their best to feed people, the government does little to help, and the largest settlement in the region, Sentinel Hill, has barred any vagabonds from entering the town. This leads to many of the homeless joining together in a reformed Defias Brotherhood, under the leadership of Vanessa [=VanCleef=], Edwin's teenage daughter. While justifiably upset, they unfortunately resort to many of the same tactics as the old Brotherhood, and share the same ultimate goal: The destruction of Stormwind City. Vanessa herself uses a number of unsavory tactics to try and achieve this goal. She murders the Furlbrow family when they recognize her true identity as Edwin [=VanCleef=]'s daughter, she forces a less-than-intelligent Ogre Mage, Glubtok, to work for her under the threat of death, and gleefully sets Sentinel Hill ablaze.

** Sargeras, one of the ultimate evils of the setting, who created the [[LegionsOfHell Burning Legion]] to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy all creation]], is one of these. While still a member of the benevolent Titans, Sargeras discovered that beyond reality, a horrible, physical manifestation of entropy, known as the Void, sought to devour reality itself, and it had found a way to do so by sending shards of itself into the physical realm. These shards would corrupt Titans yet to be born, giving the Void Lords immensely powerful servants within the physical realm. Fearing what would happen if they ever managed to corrupt even a single Titan, Sargeras decided the only course of action was to destroy all life and start things over without such a window for the Void to exploit.

* In ''RiddleSchool 5'', this is what [[spoiler:Viz]] amounts to. [[spoiler:He tried to eradicate evil in the universe by attempting to destroy all the planets. He was just a little misguided about where to find said evil.]]
* In ''{{Rosenkreuzstilette}}'', Graf Michael Sepperin counts as this. He launched a coup against the Orthodox Chuch for good reasons; Number 1, to build a war for Magi to live in peace in, where they would be free of fear and persecution, and Number 2, to [[spoiler:(supposedly)]] protect his biological daughter, Iris, whom the Church wanted dead. [[spoiler:He didn't know that Iris was [[ManipulativeBastard manipulating and deceiving him]] [[ForTheEvulz for laughs]].]]

** Lusamine in the AlternateUniverse of ''VideoGame/PokemonUltraSunAndUltraMoon''. Contrary to her actions in the universe of the original Sun/Moon, she was willing to sacrifice Cosmog in order to try and prevent Necrozma from causing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt rather than for her own reasons.

* Dr. Flange from ''Beetle Bomp'' believes that electricity is the cause of pollution, laziness and a great many of society's other ills. As such, this prompts him to release batches of the titular insects, which have been genetically modified to consume electricity.

** [[spoiler:This is ultimately the key to her HeelFaceTurn at the end of the game, and carried on throughout ''QuestForGloryV''. While the Hero falls in love with her, Katrina [[LoveRedeems falls in love with him in turn]], and this prompts her to commit her HeroicSacrifice to save him from [[TheDragon Ad Avis]]. By the time she's brought BackFromTheDead in ''Dragon Fire'', Katrina is ready to acknowledge just how badly she miscalculated.]]

* ''{{Breath of Fire}} III'''s BigBad, [[spoiler:Myria, who is also the God of the Urkan]], qualifies as well. She believes that the Brood are far too powerful and could pose a danger to the planet, even though they're a peaceful people with no desire of world conquest or destruction. So what does she do? She orders the destruction of their entire race. Talk about blowing shit out of proportion.
