* The Wiki/SCPFoundation, and that's putting it ''lightly''. They capture {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, ArtifactsOfDoom, things man was not meant to see and keep it all [[TailorMadePrison contained]] to protect humanity since many of these things could cause TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. So they use prisoners as CannonFodder to face a lot of the worst danger and testing, perform [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memory wipes]], cover ups, have [[KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade people killed]] and do horrible things to even the more benign [=SCPs=] sometimes. To make matters worse, every split off group in their universe is bad enough they are the good guys if only for comparison's sake. That it's run by a dozen people at the very top makes them especially prone to this. They also managed to aggravate some paranormal entities into being malevolent or, in a few cases, created them outright. They uphold TheMasquerade pretty well, though, so most of humanity doesn't know they exist.

** One of these split-off groups, the Global Occult Coalition, is just as well-intentioned as the Foundation but arguably more extreme. They were formed by the Allies after WWII and rather than keeping these things contained and studying them to see if they could be of any benefit to humanity like the Foundation, they simply kill/destroy anyone or anything they don't understand and be done with it. In many cases they end up either killing things that didn't deserve it or making the situation even worse.

* Dudley Griffin of ''KateModern'' is one of the few people prepared to confront the Order head on. Pity he's such a violent jerk.

* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'' [[TheCracker Tenshirock]], who wants to "free" players from {{MMORPG}} is somewhat of a meta-case. Due to most of the characters being gamers, he mostly comes off as an AntiVillain. His cause however seems noble to a portion of the audience due to the existence of actual MMORPG addicts (which are spoken of in mainstream media much more frequently than casual gamers in the show's country of origin). His methods have also been shown to be treating the symptoms rather than the disease: when his regular partner in crime gets her avatar banned, he contacts her to see how she's doing and her aswer is "Oh, I'm fine. Just spending my time watching TV while waiting to have enough money to buy [another game].".

** [[spoiler:Arthéon]] seems to have taken that route as well by the time of ''NoobLeConseilDesTroisFactions''. His purpose is basically to put an end to the DivineConflict over the planet that serves as the game's main setting. The plan he turns out to have at the end of the movie follows a [[spoiler:"there will be nothing to fight over if I just destroy the planet"]] logic.

* [[spoiler: Xandra]] from WebOriginal/{{Neopets}}. She sincerely believed that the extent to which the Neopians idolised and revered the faeries was bullshit because despite their strong power, they did almost nothing in return. That being said... let's just say that [[spoiler: crashing Faerieland into Neopia]] is universally considered to have been a ''bit'' extreme, as responses go.

* [[http://xmadame-macabrex.deviantart.com/art/Good-Doctor-Locklear-347705467 Good Doctor Locklear]] is ALL ABOUT THIS. The song released alongside it, God Syndrome, is basically a how-to guide on invoking this trope

* In ''Denazra'', released online by ''WebVideo/NatOneProductions'', the protagonists are chasing after a group of terrorists who claim to be trying to save the galaxy from swarms of self-replicating machines by making the hard decisions that everyone else is too scared to consider. [[spoiler: This includes stealing nuclear warheads from a military convoy and assisting in the [[ColonyDrop complete destruction of a populated planet]]]]. The worst part is, they may be right...

** ''SuburbanKnights'': [[spoiler:Jaffers]] and the obstacles [[spoiler:(except for [[ThatDudeInTheSuede Suede]] at the end of part 5)]] just want to protect the gauntlet from [[spoiler:[[BigBad Malecite]] so that he cannot pose a threat to our technology-dependent world]]. In the process, however, they're willing to fight and kill anyone also looking for the gauntlet in order to prevent that from happening.
