These are either poorly written examples or too generic or natter.

This page needs help with Zero Context Examples.

Grace Cahill from the 39 Clues belongs here, I think. Even though for 99% of the series we only see the effects of her actions since she dies in the first chapter (and her death sets the rest of the story going), Amy and Dan's memories of her and her stories of travelling the world and hunting down Clues set her in this trope.

Removed Mother Teresa, doing some research on the woman would show that calling her a Complete Monster may be justified, if I'm feeling charitable then Well-Intentioned Extremist works too.

It has to be said that nobody is a Complete Monster in real life.

If you are interested in Mother Theresa and how her work can be viewed negatively and justifiably criticised, I suggest you look up Christopher Hitchens' documentary about her. I think there might even be a book by him.
