* What Rasputin wants to do in ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' is to open a doorway to bring here the Seven Gods of Chaos (based on the Ogdru Jahad from the comic) to wipe out Humanity. He's a WellIntentionedExtremist as he truly believes the world is decadent and this is the only way to purify it. Apparently his former boss Hitler was less humanitarian, he just wanted to end the world because he was loosing.

* ''ComicBook/BlackScience'' introduces the draln, a cult of telepathic millipedes dedicated to ending suffering by ending the existence of life capable of suffering. They're nasty but contained on their homeworld - until they achieve interdimensional travel.


* [[spoiler:The [[EnemyWithin True Ashura]]]] in ''Manga/RGVeda'' only wishes to destroy everything in heaven, earth and hell because [[ApocalypsisMaiden he's destined to it]] and [[ForTheEvulz has a natural drive]] towards destruction.

* ''TurtlesForever'' has the Utrom!Shredder graduate to this status after he discovers the existence of the multiverse, and finds out that every universe contains an incarnation of his hated enemies. This drives him completely over the edge and he decides to bring down the entire multiverse, even though this would mean the death of him as well. This stands in stark contrast to the buffoonish 1987!Shredder, or the Mirage!Shredder who was just a petty crimelord.
** In the same continuity, there's Demon!Shredder, who Utrom!Shredder based his identity on after arriving in medieval Japan.



* [[GodOfEvil Shinnok]] in ''MortalKombat'' intends to become TheOmnipotent by consuming all energies in the MultiVerse including the life forces of all living things. Except [[EvilSorceror Quan-Chi]], [[YouWillBeSpared who will be spared]] as a "reward" for serving Shinnok. In TheBadGuyWins endings, Quan-Chi reveals that he has [[{{Outgambitted}} outplayed]] Shinnok and manages to steal his power -- and uses it to become one of these ''himself'', except this time he simply elects to kill ForTheEvulz.

*** [[GodOfEvil Shinnok's]] arcade ending in ''MortalKombatX'' [[spoiler:reveals the fallen Elder God wanted to obtain his RageAgainstTheHeavens by merging all the realms into the One Being, which then devours the Elder Gods and results in a ClassZ ApocalypseHow.

** [[ChaoticNeutral Scorpion]], of all people, briefly became one of these in ''MortalKombatArmageddon'' to [[RevengeBeforeReason get revenge]] on the Elder Gods in a RageAgainstTheHeavens scheme after they fulfilled a promise to bring his dead clan back to life... and brought them back [[CameBackWrong as undead zombies.]] The plot of that game was that there were too many powerful fighters running around and the gods had decided to pit them against each other in a tournament with ultimate power as the prize, because otherwise the fighters would unintentionally destroy everything with their fighting. Scorpion tried to derail the plan by killing TheChosenOne, the guy who was ''supposed'' to get the power to prevent it landing in the hands of one of the villains [[spoiler: which the next game reveals happened anyway -- [[OhCrap Shao Kahn was the winner]]]], simply because he was pissed at them. He wanted to destroy all the realms to spite the Elder Gods, and if he could, kill them too in the process.

* {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} from Franchis/TheDCAU has the ultimate goal of obtaining the anti-life equation and using it to undo the current existence, so he can rebuild it in a manner more to his liking. Unfortunately it tends to be overshadowed by his 'torment Superman' schemes, as he's the one thorn on his side he can't seem to properly remove.

* ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan2000'': Dr. X actually ''doesn't'' fit this trope until his final appearance, since initially he desires to replace mankind with a neo-human race by forcefully "evolving" humanity. He eventually reasons that it would be more practical to simply wipe out everyone, survive the calamity, and start over so he can remake the world in his own image.
