[[folder: ''Series/Babylon Five'' ]]

* In ''FanFic/TheDilgarWar'' Supreme Warmaster Gar'shan, the saner members of the Warmaster Council (like the protagonist Jha'dur, also known as [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathwalker]]), and the Dilgar emperor are trying to save the Dilgar race from the imminent explosion of their homeworld's sun. To do so they invaded the League of Non-Aligned Worlds, with the intent of conquering a paradise planet with adequate infrastructure already present for their people and the rest of the League for their advanced technology and worlds in which their population would be able to move when they'd grow too much for a single world, and intend to kill or enslave ''and'' work to death every single inhabitant of the League to make space and have the workforce they'll need for the first period.

* In the ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' fanfic ''A Protector's Pride'', Ichigo says this about Aizen.

[[folder: ''Crossover'' ]]

* The ''WesternAmination/JackieChanAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' crossover fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Kage}}'' (part of ''FanFic/ProjectDarkJade''), has one of these, in the backstory -- long ago, a disciple of Kandrakar, Althair the Mad Sage, led a crusade across the Known Worlds, killing thousands (especially children) in order to prevent Oracle N'ghala's vision of the "Incoming Darkness" from coming to pass.
** Nerissa ''believes'' she is one, but thinks that the best way to a peaceful universe is through obedience to her and her alone.
* ''FanFic/DeathNoteEquestria'' offers up several examples:
** [[VillainProtagonist Twilight Sparkle]], as Kira, has set upon a quest to eliminate all crime in Equestria, by killing all criminals. And she's willing to kill innocents as well, in order to protect herself.
** [[spoiler: Fluttershy]], the Second Kira, likewise believes in Kira's message, and is willing to kill anypony who speaks against her. [[{{Hypocrite}} Twilight objects to this.]]
** [[HeroAntagonist L]] is willing to go to any lengths to stop Kira, no matter how morally objectionable.
** Ace, leader of the Kira Neutrality Movement, believes that the only way to stop Kira is to remove her motivation (crime), and is thus pushing for harsher laws. That this would border on turning Equestria into a PoliceState and in no way prevents Kira from being a KarmaHoudini are acceptable consequences to him.
* An interesting case in FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi. Both [[spoiler: Empress]] Mercury and The Light qualify in different ways. Mercury wishes to return home, despite bonding to a Dungeon Heart, wich means if she succeads she will draw the Dark Gods after her. The Light knows that Mercury is an unwilling Keeper and has no intention of harming her native world, or the world she now lives in. However, they see no alternative but to oppose her as there seems to be no way to help her without also helping the Dark Gods.
* ''Fanfic/FalloutEquestria''
** Red Eye is this, and naturally fits FaceHeelTurn too. He started his own personal quest to rebuild Equestria, probably long before Littlepip even found her Cutie Mark, but became so driven to reach this huge goal that he let go of his morals. Soon, he had built up an empire upon the backs of slaves, hired merciless mercenaries to protect his assets, and forged a deal with The Goddess (which he planned to break once he worked out how to become a God himself, and kill The Goddess), who was a genocidal maniac herself. All of the things he did, no matter how horrible, were done to achieve the noble goal of rebuilding Equestria and bettering the lives of its inhabitants.
** Littlepip can classify as one too, or at least she have shades of it. [[spoiler:Scootaloo]], on the other hand, is a more straight example.
* In ''[[FanFic/JusticeLeagueOfEquestria Mare of Steel]]'', this is how [[GeneralRipper Steel Wing]] sees himself, willing to do whatever it takes to [[BewareTheSuperman defend Equestria from Supermare]]. However, it's clear both in and out of universe that he's just a paranoid KnightTemplar putting innocents in danger for no good reason.
** [[LexLuthor Alexander Silversmith]] also tries to present himself as one, who does despicable deeds as part of a larger plan to make Equestria a better place. However, he's just a CorruptCorporateExecutive using it as an excuse.
* Averted in ''Fanfic/KyonBigDamnHero''. Koizumi absolutely refuses to use his new powers on unwilling subjects, seeking consent before experimenting on them, which makes it difficult for him to practice his powers.
* The [[spoiler: OriginalCharacter]] BigBad from ''FanFic/TheManWithNoName'' is this.
* The Order Triune in the ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' crossover fanfic ''FanFic/TheDresdenFillies False Masks'' see themselves as this. They seek to wipe out any trace of a reincarnated EvilOverlord called Obisidian. This is all well and good, until they've mistaken Harry Dresden, someone they've never even ''met'', as this reincarnated villain. In the process of trying to kill them, they've [[spoiler: kidnapped Twilight and Trixie, spied on many ponies, released a hydra that could have killed bystanders, and summoned '''He Who Walks Behind''' '''''TWICE''''', severely injuring the princess. In their final act, before they were themselves [[KarmicDeath sacrificed to summon a demon]] was to attack the Mane 6 and a disguised Princess Celestia to get to Dresden. When in turns out Obsidian ''never'' resurrected, Vigilant Watch, one of the surviving members of the Order Triune, is extremely remorseful for all her crimes, and is dismayed when she is let off so easily by Princess Celestia.]]
** [[spoiler: Novel Notion, who manipulated the Order into going after Harry, orchestrated their sacrifice, and planned to the same thing to the Mane 6 and Princess Celestia to become powerful himself, claims to be this, trying to create a society rule by ponies (specifically his own cohorts) by eliminating Princess Celestia and getting rid of the Order, and he totally unrepentant about it. While his reasoning for destroying the Order is pretty sound (it also made him what he was), and Princess Celestia admits that she is a tyrant, she also tells him that he would have killed many more ponies to cement his rule.]]

[[folder: ''Manga/Death Note'' ]]

* The Astraea organization in ''FanFic/ACureForLove'', especially [[spoiler: V]]. When the original [[Manga/DeathNote Kira]] disappears they take it upon themselves to "cleanse the world" in his absence.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Franchise/Digimon'' ]]

* Alphamon in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7623289/1/ Transcendence: Digital Curse]] seems to truly want to protect the Digital World. However, he believes that every problem that has endangered it originated within the real world. As a result, he wants to completely sever any links the two worlds have to each other. Gennai notes that if such a thing were to actually happen it could even destroy the digital world, but it's unknown if Alphamon actually knows this fact as well. So far, none of his actions seem to have contributed much to this goal. [[spoiler: His attempts to eliminate Agumon even seem to be just to spite humanity by stopping them from having a relationship with digimon.]]

[[folder: ''Literature/Harry Potter'' ]]

* In ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' fanfic [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4842696/1/Reparations Reparations]], Draco works in the St Mungo's Department of Magical and Chemical Dependence (Chem Dep for short), which is basically rehab for magic folk. Most of the patients are addicted to a wizard drug called [[FantasticDrug Chromia]], but there's also a new drug called Chromia X, which is stronger, more addictive and thus more dangerous than regular Chromia. It turns out that the department is constantly running the risk of being shut down because the [[ExecutiveMeddling the board]] doesn't understand its importance, so the head of the department, Draco's boss, creates and distributes Chromia X because he figures that if the number of patients increases, the board can't justify shutting down the department.

[[folder: ''Homestuck'' ]]

* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'''s Lereal Belsai genuinely wants to do what's best for the warmbloods. Unfortunately, [[FantasticRacism he thinks this involves overthrowing and enslaving the coldbloods in turn]]. He also masterminds an attack in which all 250 of the ChildSoldiers of the Sufferist cult attack the thousands-strong Alternian fleet, relying on the protective magical powers Karkat Vantas has repeatedly and truthfully insisted he doesn't have.

[[folder: ''Series/Kamen Rider Fourze'' ]]

* Damballa in the ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'' story ''A Month of Sundays'', [[spoiler: transformed Shotaro, Haruto and Eiji into {{Creepy Doll}}s because he has been trying to find a way to revive his own grandson who got lost in the struggle of the War of the Stars. Unfortunately, he's forcing the transformation on them, shattering their minds in the process and he truly cannot grasp the idea of a human mind. Thankfully, [[TheHeart Jun]] helps him see the light and reunites him with his grandson.]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Kingdom Hearts'' ]]

* In Fanfic/TheShroudedPath, [[spoiler: Vanitas]], the BigBad behind SilentHill, is responsible for the torture (and often death) of the people who enter the town. However, he honestly thinks he is doing the universe a favour by ridding it of those people's evil.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Machinima'' ]]

* Hausmann in ''Machinima/ClearSkies'', who just wants to get his planet back. [[spoiler:When the battle with the Caldari fleet turns against him, he chooses to surrender rather than get any more of his people killed]].
--> '''Hausmann:''' [[spoiler:I came here to get our planet back, but I've lost more of my people in the last five minutes than in the last two years! No more!]]

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Franchise/Super Mario Bros'' ]]

* In ''FanFic/ClashOfTheElements'', Joe Dark [[spoiler: THINKS]] he is one of these, but as Alex points out to him [[spoiler: after learning of his backstory]], his ends don't really justify the means.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: ''Western Animation/My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic'' ]]

* In ''FanFic/ChroniclesOfHarmonysEnd'', Array desires nothing more than to erase [[OrderVersusChaos his counterpart, Discord]] and considers backstabbing the TopGod (the only one keeping them - especially Discord - in line) a price worth paying for the chance. [[spoiler:[[NiceJobBreakingItHero He then proceeds to lose to Discord.]]]]
* According to the LemonyNarrator of [[FanFic/EquestriaAHistoryRevealed Equestria: A History Revealed]], the canon version of Discord is an example of this, at least when compared to the "[[BlatantLies ultimate evil]]" of Celestia. Given she says this at the end of a chapter describing all that occurred during his Age of Chaos makes such a claim very questionable, especially when Celestia's regime doesn't seem to do anything as obviously destructive as his.
** In a more serious example, the former pegasus war hero Thunderhide is a clearer example of this, joining [[spoiler: Luna's side after losing faith in the Celestia-Equestrian system, and believing that joining her in destroying it is the only way true change can occur.]]
* ''FanFic/InnerDemons'': [[spoiler: Scootaloo]], having performed a FaceHeelTurn and joined up with Twilight (who herself had been consumed by her [[EnemyWithin Queen of Darkness persona]] and become the BigBad), is this mixed with TheStarscream. She admits that, unlike [[TheDragon Trixie]] and [[spoiler: Sweetie Belle]] (who both also had {{Face Heel Turn}}s around the same time she did), she's known all along what a monster Queen!Twilight is, and has only served her in order to get close enough to kill her and end her rule over Equestria. However (and this is where the Starscream angle comes in), she is ''clearly'' enjoying the pain and suffering she inflicts on the heroes, and more to the point, she has no intention of returning the throne to the Princesses -- once Queen!Twilight is dead by her hoof, she intends to set herself up as the great [[TheHero Hero]] who saved the day, and then take the throne for herself.
** After [[spoiler: her HeelFaceTurn]] she admits to having gotten DrunkWithPower and lost sight of her original goal.
* ''[[FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse Nightmare Night and Nyx]]'': The conspiracy trying to eliminate Nyx are all convinced she's still evil and has brainwashed the Princesses, and thus has to be destroyed. [[spoiler: They all have a collective MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment when they realize how wrong they were.]]
* [[Fanfic/PagesOfHarmony Pages of Harmony]] also portrays Twilight as this. All she seems to want is for Harmony to reign in Equestria.... which she plans to achieve through [[spoiler: performing torture and MindRape on her friends to extract their Elements, as well as anypony who gets in the way of her plans]].
* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'', the second BigBad, Princess [[spoiler:Gaia, Fluttershy's SuperpoweredEvilSide]], is this. She only wants to create a utopia were no one suffers and everyone is happy...by ''brainwashing'' everyone into being happy and [[spoiler:[[FountainOfYouth turning every pony into foals in both mind and body.]]]]
* ''[[FanFic/PoniesOfOlympus Rolling in Beaches]]'': King Kenbroath and his clan honestly believe that ponies are descended from cursed dragons (it's actually the other way around) and that they must use the Rainbow Pearl to revert it. He doesn't care to ask anypony's permission first because he figures granting them all substantially longer lives and great power would be a blessing.
* ''FanFic/SlyWitsParadise'' has the Unicorn chief Phantom Spell. He is an autocratic Unicorn chief stallion, is very (large emphasis on "very") strict on his orders and rules and has zero tolerance on misbehaviour and internal conflict, but he did so to keep his herd safe from the frequent dangers of the Everfree Forest where they live in (such as the Ursa Major that passed through the Unicorn territory later).
* ''Fanfic/{{Misunderstandings}}'': The conspiracy against Peter Collins, a human who ends up Equestria, is actually a subversion but in different ways. For many of the nobles out to get Peter, it is subverted on the "well-intentioned" part. They seek to target Peter, but only because they see him as a way to discredit Princess Twilight in the eyes of Princess Celestia and seek other personal gains, and show almost no concern for who gets hurt in the process. For Sergeant Peppermint York, it is subverted on the "extremist part". She genuinely believes Peter is a dangerous monster [[spoiler: and in all fairness Peter did almost fatally shoot Aircolt Swift Wind]] but is unwilling to hurt other ponies to get to him, and finds herself more and more [[EvenEvilHasStandards infuriated by the actions of the conspirators which have endangered lives]] than with Peter being free in general. [[spoiler: When Peter is proven to be totally innocent of any wrongdoing, she confesses to the role she played.]]

[[folder: ''Franchise/pokemon'' ]]

* Ho-oh from ''Fanfic/PokeWars'' wants Pokémon-kind to live in a utopia. He plans to achieve this utopia by engaging in a genocide against humanity. [[spoiler: He later goes JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope by doing things like ordering wanton killing of Pokémon, contrary to his ideals, utterly ruining the environment and not giving a damn about it, and generally being a filthy hypocrite.]]
