** Sozin started off as this, but as he became older, he became more obsessed with power. [[spoiler: It took until the end of his life for him to acknowledge this.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', we have Grandma Taters, who turns the entire city of Retroville into cheerful, mindless meat puppets. Why? She just wants everyone to be happy.

* The original ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}'' was full of guys like this, who were trying to save humanity (or thought they were) or one group of people through their actions, without considering the consequences. One example was a scientist who thought shrinking people could solve world hunger. (Since shrunken human ate far less than normal-sized ones, it made sense, right?) Another example was a scientist who altered the Gulf Stream to the point where he could practically control the weather; his intent was to aid his poverty-stricken nation of Glacia with better farmland, even if it crippled the rest of the world, as he was sure nobody else cared about them. (In truth, nobody else had even ''heard'' of them, [[CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot and simply asking for help]] could have avoided a lot of problems.) Another was an alien from Venus who was trying to make the environment of Earth more like his planet so his people could colonize it, because industrial pollution had made the temperature on Venus too cold for them to tolerate. (Again, simply asking for help never occurred to them.)

* Agent Bishop from ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003'' fits the bill. He seems genuinely concerned with protecting humanity from an AlienInvasion, a noble goal, if he wasn't willing to commit illegal, immoral, and unethical deeds towards it. He kidnapped the Turtles with the intent to dissect them. And this is ''not'' a case of FantasticRacism, as he also held Karai hostage to blackmail Shredder, threatening to her life if his demands weren't met. (The Turtles claim he disgusts them even more than Hun, which Raphael admits "isn't easy to do".)

** Starlight Glimmer wants to spread friendship and equality throughout all of Equestria...by robbing ponies of their special talents. This is actually [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]], as Starlight turned out to be a [[spoiler: {{hypocrite}} because she had her talent all along (though it is possible that [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation she was going to equalise herself for real once she'd done so to everypony in Equestria, and hadn't done so already because she knew that she would lack the drive to complete her goal)]]. This causes all her support to implode and she goes down in history as an evil ruler, undoing any good her methods might have brought. [[spoiler:The Season 5 finale later reveals that she adopted her ideology of friendship through total equality because of a childhood friend, Sunburst, who left her when she was a filly after receiving his cutie mark. This caused her to believe that cutie marks are harmful to friendship, and to create her equality village, in hopes of creating a society where no one could ever boast about being different or being better than others.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': [[spoiler: After Steven accidentally un-bubbles the gem in Lion's mane, we meet Bismuth, who was one of the original Crystal Gems. In the final act of that same episode, we discover that she was bubbled by Rose Quartz for developing a weapon that could easily shatter a Gem's gemstone instead of just destroying their physical form (as long as the gemstone is intact, [[FromASingleCell their species can regenerate the body in a matter of minutes)]]. Such a tactic, while it would have likely helped win the GreatOffscreenWar with less causalities on the Crystal Gem side, was deemed as [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim stooping to Homeworld's level]] by Rose. This sentiment shared by Steven, which leads to Bismuth beind bubbled once again and the weapon destroyed.]]
