** Othar Tryggvassen, GentlemanAdventurer!, from the same series. He has the same goal as the Baron but a different method: [[GottaKillEmAll He plans to kill every Spark in the world]], [[NoPlaceForMeThere ending with himself]], due to the sorry state Sparks have left the normal folks of Europa in. As a result he's a hero to the common folk and non-sparks, while the sparks (including our protagonists) all despise him and [[RunningGag tend to throw him out of airships]].

Added DiffLines:

** [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Dr. Eggman]] turns out to want to conquer the world largely to establish a scientific utopia and prevent any incidents like [[VideoGame/SonicAdventure2 the ARK massacre]] from happening. Because his motives are so similar to Mysto's, the two are firm allies.
** [[EcoTerrorists Malthus and the Light Demons]] want to preserve the ecosystem... by wiping out most of the world's population. (Malthus being named after Thomas Malthus isn't an accident.)
** The Trophic Blenders seek to solve world hunger and eliminate violence... by making everyone photosynthetic. [[note]]Their argument boils down to "The root cause of all violence is competition over vital resources in limited supply. If all life-forms could directly harness the nigh-infinite energy of the sun to live, instead of having to consume one another, then there would be no need for anyone to harm anyone else, and violence would become obsolete and vanish." Note that taking a close look at how many plants interact with each other (which can get downright ruthless) quickly pokes holes in this reasoning.[[/note]] To this end, they kidnap people and [[PeopleFarms forcibly breed them]] with [[PlantPerson Seedrians]] [[EvilutionaryBiologist in order to generate a "master race"]] of [[{{Planimal}} plant-animal hybrids]]. [[spoiler:Thankfully, their extremism is ''greatly'' toned down post-TimeSkip.]]
** The crowning example is arguably Drathilox, who hails from an unpublished ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' fanfic. Drathilox, like the Trophic Blenders, seeks to eliminate violence. But where the Trophic Blenders see competition for food as the root of all violence, Drathilox instead blames prejudice, bigotry, and hatred. To eliminate prejudice, Drathilox seeks to [[AssimilationPlot transform all beings into Drathlings]] -- [[HiveMind essentially his mental slaves]]. Drathilox believes that stripping away the distinctions of race -- [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill and free will along with them]] -- is the only way to abolish violence.
** While it's not touched on much, even ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]]'' has elements of this, as it's implied that the Mushroom Kingdom persecuted the Koopa Kingdom long ago, up to and including ''murdering Bowser's first wife''.
** Last but certainly not least, we have Altair, a Catholic fundamentalist who seeks to cleanse the world of sin... which, to him, means slaughtering anyone who doesn't fit his definition of a Christian. He's responsible for both Mysto's StartOfDarkness and Artemis's insanity, as he murdered their loved ones in cold blood. Despite his bloodlust, he genuinely believes he's following the will of Yawheh (a.k.a. {{God}}). Much like Miko Miyazaki above, even [[DePower being stripped of his power]] and flat-out ordered to stop his asshattery '''by God Himself''' doesn't get Altair to realize he's wrong. [[spoiler:God does eventually find a use for Altair, though, by setting up a XanatosGambit in tandem with Triglav in order to push Mysto towards redemption.]]

* Many, ''many'' villains from ''WebComic/WhiteDarkLife'' are like this. To wit...
** Mysto Majora Kijadhimov is the HeroToHisHometown variant. Using her innate power to travel through time, she has witnessed the Catholic Church's ruthless persecution of various pagan religions, including [[UsefulNotes/SlavicMythology her own]], and she is fiercely determined not to let it happen again. The problem is that she believes [[GodsNeedPrayerBadly the only way to accomplish this]] is to [[FinalSolution utterly obliterate the Abrahamic religions]].

*WebComic/{{Paranatural}}: One of the themes of the comic is extremists using good intentions to justify evil deeds... even if the deeds have nothing to do with their good intentions.
**Spender is a lesser example of this theme. His goals are still unclear, but he discusses killing one of his coworkers to keep things hidden, and Isabel's grandfather claims that one day someone more heroic than him is going to end up killing him. Spender's boss knows he's obviously up to something, but also knows that not everything he is hiding is important. She jokes that she doesn't even know his middle name.
-->'''Boss Leader:''' I suspect he keeps secrets from me more out of ''habit'' at this point.
**Forge is a powerful fire spirit who did many terrible things when he was younger in pursuit of the greater good. While he claims to have changed, and has come to Mayview to serve "the angel" since her moral compass is far more reliable than his own, he still hasn't learned his lesson. He scratches a near-mortal wound in the Ghost Train merely as a distraction, and then blames Spender when this action puts Spender's kids in danger.
**Hijack is a spirit who can puppeteer human bodies. He takes control of Jeff partly because he needs to get inside the teacher's lounge, but also because he feels bad that Jeff was bullied and wants to give him some vengeance. Except then he attacks Max (in order to get in trouble and get sent to the teacher's lounge), despite Max having done absolutely nothing wrong. Max calls him out on this, saying he's just another bully. Isabel says something similar.
-->'''Isabel:''' He has fun hurting people, so his ''evil heart'' tells him it's for a good cause.

** If [[EldritchAbomination the Snarl]] breaks out, it's believed that it will not only destroy the universe, but render its victims DeaderThanDead. As such, half the gods are actually in favor of destroying the world ''now,'' so that they're followers will at least get an afterlife. There are good and evil gods on both sides of the debate.

** Feferi Peixes planned to reform her entire society to become more compassionate to others if and when she became empress, even though said compassion is shown to be more than a bit [[CondescendingCompassion condescending]]. In an AlternateUniverse, she succeeds, but creates a CrapSaccharineWorld that had no hope of beating [[TheGamePlaysYou Sburb]].

*Michael Kappel in ''Webcomic/{{Collar 6}}'' just wants to end the silent cold war between the world governments because their hostility is creating a shadow blight that is poisoning the world (not to mention causing a lot of collateral damage). But he thinks the only way to do it is to DePower everyone but his loyalists and take control of the world himself.
