** Demons are played differently in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''--while they love wanton murder and destruction, they ''don't'' want to destroy everything because then they'd have no more fun. Instead, the cessation of all life is the goal of the NeutralEvil daemons, who know nothing but hatred for everything, themselves included, and derive pleasure from nothing. To compare the two, whereas a demon would rape you to death for its own enjoyment, a daemon would quickly and efficiently kill you just to snuff you out.
*** The Asuras are a minor type of LawfulEvil fiends who want to destroy all of divine creation as they are "errors" of the gods, while the [[EldritchAbomination Qlippoth]] want to eradicate [[KillAllHumans all sentient live]] so no sinful souls arrive in the Abyss to form Demons, so the Qlippoth can reclaim it for themselves again.
*** Then there is Rovagug, who is very similar to Tharizdun above, but imprisoned in the core of Golarion (the setting's main planet) instead of outside the universe and is still capable of releasing devasting monsters known as Spawns of Rovagug, the most well known being the Tarrasque.

* In''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', the cessation of all life is the goal of the NeutralEvil daemons, who know nothing but hatred for everything, themselves included, and derive pleasure from nothing. To compare them to the other fiends, whereas a demon would rape you to death for its own enjoyment and a devil would break you until you turned your back on everything you loved, a daemon would quickly and efficiently kill you just to snuff you out.

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Anyone of importance in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' [[EarthShatteringKaboom can blow up planets]]. However, only Majin Buu seems intent on undoing all of creation [[ForTheEvulz merely out of malice, spite, boredom]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and inability to get ice cream]]. And that was [[TheSociopath before he got rid of his conscience]].
** Cell planned on becoming one of these after the Cell Games. Once he was finished having his fun on Earth, he planned to destroy it, then travel to other planets and repeat the process. But he was killed before he could get started. His motive was that as the UltimateLifeForm, his true purpose was to cause the end of all life.
** Broly blew up an entire galaxy, and nearly did the same to "our" galaxy before the heroes stopped him.
** Majin Buu's fat form had no real aspirations of genocide, only killing because he was told to by [[TheManBehindTheMan Babidi]] and [[ObliviouslyEvil he didn't know it was wrong]]. His later forms, however, know full well that they're doing evil, and enjoy it thoroughly:
*** Super Buu lived for two things: challenging fights, and eating sweets. When told to go kill off some humans so as to give the heroes more time to train, he proceeds to launch a storm of energy blasts at the planet below that seek out and kill every last human not on the Lookout save three (Hercule/Mr. Satan, who wasn't targeted because he befriended Buu, and Tien & Chiaotzu, who were able to dodge the blasts). Even after gaining intelligence by absorbing Piccolo and Gohan, he still goes on a destructive spree of blowing up cities for fun (after [[SweetTooth eating the entire contents of]] [[VillainousGlutton every sweets shop in it first]]), lamenting that the lack of people means he can't enjoy their screams.
*** Kid Buu is ''considerably'' more unhinged, and is pure evil. A simple-minded being, being an Omnicidal Maniac is all he knows or cares about; he blows up the Earth simply because it is there, obliterates several other planets while searching for Goku & Vegeta, and then, once everyone in the vicinity is dead, he ''breaks into the Afterlife so he can keep killing''.
** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': [[GodIsEvil Zamasu]], the renegade Kai from Universe 10. Zamasu sees mortal life as a mistake, and [[TheGodsMustBeLazy both the Kais and Gods of Destruction lazy]] for not doing something about the mortals. For awhile, it was simply mere rhetoric and musings. Then Zamasu was beaten in a friendly duel by none other than [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Son Goku]]. [[spoiler: Realizing that mortals had the power to rival Gods, Zamasu started down a path he called his [[FinalSolution "Zero Mortals Plan"]]. To this end, [[KlingonPromotion he killed his mentor Gowasu, promoting himself to Supreme Kai of Universe 10]]. He then abused the Time Rings of the Kais to gain any amount of wishes he desired from the Super Dragon Balls AFTER he destroyed them and any other set of Dragon Balls in existence. This has resulted in multiple different timelines coming into being, [[WithUsOrAgainstUs the genocide of the gods (because they would oppose him)]], and the slow demise of the mortal races. Zamasu is apparently taking his time with executing the mortals because he feels that the pain and fear they must suffer through his attacks is [[KnightTemplar "justice"]]. It got so bad that Beerus intervened and killed one version of Zamasu before he got started and saved the present version of Gowasu. But as in most time travel stories, it didn't change the alternate future where Zamasu ran roughshod over creation. Towards the end of the Future Trunks arc this takes place in, Gowasu investigates and sees for himself the carnage his former apprentice has committed. [[MadGod As Zamasu rants about his justice using barely coherent logic]] and his body [[BodyHorror melting from Goku's attacks]], Gowasu states that [[SanitySlippage Zamasu has become unstable]].]]
*** It didn't seem possible, but Zamasu got [[UpToEleven WORSE]]. [[spoiler: After Trunks manages to subconsciously create a Spirit Bomb from the remaining life on his planet, he absorbs it into himself and infuses his ruined sword with the power. He then proceeds [[GroinAttack to stab Zamazu in the groin]] and [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe cut the crazed god in half vertically]]. All seems well. The bad guy is finished, and all the protagonists are alive. But no. Destroying Zamasu's physical form allowed him to become [[EldritchAbomination something MUCH worse]]. Now a miasma of unrestrained malice, Zamasu is reduced to [[LaughingMad maniacal laughter as he loses any form of sentience]] and proceeds [[ApocalypseHow/Class6 to wipe out EVERY LIVING THING on the planet]]. All humans, animals, plants, and even the water and buildings are reduced to a desert wasteland. The only ones who survive this assault are Goku and his friends in the immediate area. [[FromBadToWorse This is just the beginning]], [[ApocalypseHow/ClassX4 as Zamasu spreads to other worlds, and threatens the ENTIRE MULTIVERSE]]. Beerus and Whis feel his presence in the present, and the rest of the Z Fighters see a black orb with Zamasu's laughing face appear over Capsule Corp. It's not the just the multiverse he's in, it's alternate timelines as well. [[ApocalypseHow/ClassZ Zamasu is going to wipe out all life everywhere and at any point in time.]] The only thing stopping this was [[SummonBiggerFish Goku summoning Zen'o-sama for aid]]. Upon seeing the oblivion Zamasu created, Zen'o-sama [[CessationOfExistence saw only one course of action to stop it]]. Goku and the gang managed to hop into the Time Machine to head back to the present just in time, so it's all good. But you keep in mind that it took [[SerialEscalation Zen'o hitting the kill switch]] by [[ApocalypseHow/ClassX5 wiping out an entire timeline of the Multiverse]] to [[GodzillaThreshold truly end Zamasu's madness]].]]
* Fall, the ultimate BigBad of ''Manga/{{NORA}}'': The Last Chronicle of Devildom' was revealed to be this in the final battle by almost absorbing all of the life energy of the Demon World and the Human World [[spoiler: with the insane amount of power he had absorbed from Nora, Duece and the Dark Leige]] destroying all "defective" beings along with it. All of this out of [[spoiler: rage and betrayal towards the previous Cerberus, Diegree, after he died giving strength to the current Dark Leige without fighting Fall a final time.]] After his defeat, he repents by giving Nora his power back along with the stolen power of the Dark Leige, nearly making Nora a PersonOfMassDestruction.
* Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott from ''LightNovel/DateALive'' claims to plunge the whole world into a endless state of chaos, death and destruction but this is not the only thing that he really wants. His goal in itself is to turn the whole world into a "hell" thus also lead humanity to destruction, without leaving a single life on the planet.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'': The Millenium's only motive is to cause endless war and destruction ForTheEvulz, meaning that the war they caused will end if either they get defeated or their opponent, which is humanity as a whole, gets wiped to extinction.
* Valgaav, both TheDragon and BigBad of ''LightNovel/{{Slayers}} TRY'' wanted the destruction of everything ''before'' merging with Darkstar, believing that oblivion was what the world deserved. Afterwards, the knowledge he gained about the nature of the universe drove him to become a WellIntentionedExtremist merged with Darkstar's godlike power, intending to destroy the entire world and then remake it without strife or conflict.
** In the novel canon, ''all'' Mazoku are [[StrawNihilist nihilistic]] Omnicidal Maniacs; in the anime this is most visible with Hellmaster Fibrizo:
---> '''Fibrizo:''' "I want to be destroyed. I want to be destroyed! Destruction? Yes... Destruction is the ultimate wish of any Monster. That's what we were created for. Isn't it? That's what we were created for! [..] But this destruction shall consume all things! It shall consume the entire world! [...] All the world! Let all the world be destroyed with me!"
** Subverted with Xelloss, who pays lip-service to the Mazoku "blow up everything" mentality but clearly enjoys life way too much for him to mean any of it. He attempts to excuse his saving the world from Duragnigdu by saying that destroying the world is his job, not Dark Star's. Riiiiight. We believe you.
*** At that time he wasn't acting for his own benefit, but working as the envoy of the entire Mazoku race, so presumably the surviving Mazoku Lords agreed on his logic there, as well. Plus he was promised that the power released from the killed Dark Star would be granted to the local Dark Lord, Ruby-Eye Shabranigadu. It's left unclear whether that bargain was held or not, but if it was, then Xelloss definitely hastened the homemade Apocalypse by getting rid of the foreign product.
*** That deal about getting some of Dark Star's energy was never intended to be fulfilled, probably by both sides - nothing shows this more than the fact that Xelloss betrayed the Overworlders shortly after the deal even got mentioned.
*** Given that most Mazoku fight damn hard to stay alive, it's entirely possible that Fibrizo was simply nuts, and paying lip-service to the cause of universal destruction is the normal attitude of "sane" Mazoku.
* Rau Le Creuset of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' isn't perhaps the most obvious, as his goals merely encompass the extinction of humanity, Natural and Coordinator alike. However, given the much smaller scale (the action never extends past Mars due to limited space travel), it's quite omnicidal in context. His motivation for this is that he believes that HumansAreBastards and have only limped along so far as they have because they have never possessed the means to wipe themselves out before now. He honestly believes that the human race as a whole deserves death, not just for his own [[CloningBlues admittedly sad life]] but for all the suffering they inflict upon others that he has seen. Given the atrocities committed by both sides in the war, and the genocidal ambitions of so many in the series, [[VillainHasAPoint it isn't hard to see his point]]. In the end, Le Creuset winds up one of the more terrifying examples of this character because his motivations are understandable: it is not impossible to see someone actually winding up with his worldview, rather than just wiping everything out because they're a CardCarryingVillain.
* ''Anime/SDGundamForce'' gives us the leader of the Dark Axis, General Zeong. His sole motivation is to become powerful enough to fire a beam that would wipe out all dimensions.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' seems to have at least one per season:
** ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' has Apocalymon. The name says it all. When he was defeated, he tried to unleash a blast that would eradicate the human world and the Digital World.
** ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02:'' BigBad ([[DiscOneFinalBoss or so we think at the time]]) Arukenimon's main plan is to destroy the [[CosmicKeystone Cosmic Keystones]] that maintain the barriers between dimensions, which would cause all dimensions to collide, destroying the multiverse. Her intended [[TheDragon Dragon]] refuses to help on the grounds that she's an unworthy mistress, but eventually decides, for his own reasons, to do the same, making him just as much of an Omnicidal Maniac.
** ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' features a non-Digimon AI that was designed to prevent other programs from exceeding their boundaries ('cause AIIsACrapshoot) by deleting them if they surpassed a certain stage of development. It decides all humans and Digimon meet criteria for deletion. Then it gets ''[[EldritchAbomination really]]'' [[TheHeartless nasty]].
** ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'': Lucemon is more of a digital EvilutionaryBiologist. The data that makes up Digital World's matter (and population) is easily manipulated, and it ''all'' had to be absorbed and used to release him [[SealedEvilInACan from the Dark Area.]] He planned to use it to rebuild the world as he saw fit.
** ''Anime/DigimonSavers'', aka ''Digimon Data Squad,'' has Yggdrasil/King Drasil, the computer that runs the Digital World. When the previous arc's [[BigBad Big Bag's]] plan backfires and both worlds are going to collide, he decides that the human world must go. When the Digimon fight against him and his minions to protect it, guess what he ''then'' decides? He, too, plans on restarting the Digital World after destroying the old one.
** ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' has Bagramon, who wants to remake both worlds in his image.
* The [[BigBad Millennium Earl]] in ''Manga/DGrayMan'' is very open about this, explicitly taunting the hero in his first real appearance.
-->'''The Millennium Earl:''' "You have only witnessed the opening chapter... the akuma in this world will continue to evolve. Now begins the journey leading up to the true tragic end. I am the Millennium Earl, the maker of the akuma. I shall obliterate your puny "God" and lead the world to its death with my akuma. An exorcist, a soldier of life. You can't save this world no matter how hard you try."
* Franchise/LyricalNanoha:
** [[EnemyWithout The berserked defense program]] of the Book of Darkness in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs''. Its existence is as thus: Appear when [[TomeOfEldritchLore Book of Darkness]] fills all [[NumberOfTheBeast 666 pages]], [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy every world and dimension in its path]], get temporarily killed either from a really powerful weapon or from having burned out its considerable amount of magic, [[BackFromTheDead rejuvenate with Book of Darkness somewhere else]], repeat. [[spoiler: In reality, the book is actually a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds. She was originally a magical encyclopedia, then someone messed with her programming and trapped her and the Wolkenritter in this ViciousCycle.]]
** The Eclipse virus in ''Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce'' turns a large number of its victims into a mix of this and extreme {{Jerkass}} for some reason, dying horribly if they either cease killing or don't have some sort of medical care keeping it at bay.
* ''Manga/SailorMoon'' has several, Queen Metaria the BigBad of the Classic season, Wiseman/Death Phantom the BigBad of the R season, the entire Death Busters organization of the S season and Sailor Galaxia of the Stars season. Sailor Galaxia, in particular, is notable for omniciding at least a half-dozen, and probably much more, habitable planets, before coming to Earth - by the GrandFinale she wipes out all life in the Milky Way galaxy in both the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] and the first anime. Chaos, who directly controls her and is hinted (or outright stated in the manga) to be the UltimateEvil behind the rest of them, is one too.
** Manga!Prince Dimande became one of these after he was forced to kill his brother and TheReveal of the BigBad's true identity, going so far as to steal the Sliver Crystals in order to cause the destruction of reality itself. It took Sailor Pluto's sacrifice to stop him.
* Ralph Werec in ''Anime/StrainStrategicArmoredInfantry'' went back in time via SubspaceOrHyperspace and saw the [[PoweredByAForsakenChild cost]] of the research that went into the BlackBox that powered the series' HumongousMecha. His sanity didn't make it out intact, and he decides to destroy his entire race in retaliation, never mind that nobody knows anything about it.
* Many ''Franchise/PrettyCure'' [[BigBad Big Bads]] were omnicidal maniacs. The Dark King in the original series and ''Max Heart'' started the trend by trying to destroy the Universe because it was in his nature; Lord Akudaikahn in Splash Star was his {{Expy}}; Dune in Heartcatch was defined by his hatred of everything.
** ''Anime/FutariWaPrettyCureSplashStar'' gives us [[spoiler:Gooyan, the NotSoHarmlessVillain ManBehindTheMan.]]
** The Director of Eternal in ''Anime/YesPrettyCure5 Go!Go!'' is this for worlds he considered to have no value. If a world has a value, he'll drain them of every of its values, that is, treasures. Once they ran out of it, he'll first turn everything of that world into stone, before blowing them up to kingdom come.
* ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'', of all series, had one. The Lord of Terror aka The Ultimate Destruction Program, a bodiless entity whose one goal is to destroy the universe and recreate it in its own twisted image. Given the highly idealistic nature of the series, it failed (though it was a close call) and was [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal when it was tricked into possessing a floppy disk which Skuld erased using a magnet]].
* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', the Mage of Beginnings and his minions, [[spoiler:the three incarnations of Averruncus]], want to destroy Magicus Mundus (a pocket dimension planet the size of and dimensionally anchored to [[spoiler:Mars]]). [[spoiler:It's ultimately subverted, as Mundus Magicus is collapsing on its own, and the BigBad thinks that the only way to save everyone is to move all the inhabitants into a LotusEaterMachine.]]
* Yami Malik of ''Manga/YuGiOh'' explicitly states in the manga that all he wants is total destruction of everyone and everything.
%%** Then there's [[spoiler:Zorc]].
* Yuri of''Anime/YuGiOhARCV''. He explicitly states that he doesn't care about the war he's in, and what he's fighting for. He just wants to defeat and card (essentially kill) people, and wants to card everyone, in every dimension, until he's the only one left. Once he kills Yugo and realizes the power of Zarc is within him and Yuya, he abandons his cause to try absorb Yuya, thus bringing out Zarc and destroying everything.
* Clear Note, the final BigBad of ''Manga/ZatchBell'' manga, intends to become the new King of Demons solely so that he can use the associated privilege of erasing from existence any demons he doesn't like, to erase everyone indiscriminately. His reasons boil down to existing only to kill other demons and wanting to do it in the most efficient way. [[PersonOfMassDestruction He also nearly makes the Earth uninhabitable with his ultimate spell.]]
* ''Manga/TheLuciferAndBiscuitHammer'' has BigBad The Mage, who is poised to destroy the Earth by hitting it with [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin a giant Biscuit Hammer]]. His eventual StartOfDarkness reveals that he's done this a ''lot'': [[spoiler:Being from the future, he has continually travelled backwards in time and destroyed the Earth at every point in time it existed from the point he gained his powers until now. If the protagonists don't stop him he intends to keep on doing this until the Earth no longer exists at any point in time... Simply because he ''can''.]]
** The protagonists, on the other hand, are led by a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds who intends to destroy the Earth herself if she defeats the Mage -- [[spoiler:she's suffering from a SoapOperaDisease and doesn't want the Earth to go on without her.]] [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption The Earth just can't catch a break in this series, can it?]]
* In ''{{Anime/Noein}}'', [[spoiler: Noein's goal is to absorb all possible futures into his own reality, then end the entire universe.]]
* King Zenoheld from ''Anime/{{Bakugan}}'' eventually decided to do this after undergoing a ''major'' VillainousBreakdown, deciding to destroy the entire universe.
** Mag Mel entered the picture with this in mind. His ultimate plan is to destroy the Earth in such a way as to set off a chain reaction to destroy the entire universe.
* Dewey Novak in ''Anime/EurekaSeven'' tries to do this by making the Scub Coral exceed to Limit of Questions (the in-universe theory that only a certain amount of intelligent life can exist in a given space, exceeding this limit causes the collapse of the universe)
* [[spoiler:The second]] Friend in ''Manga/TwentiethCenturyBoys'' is this. [[spoiler:While the first one]] was comitting genocide with a killer virus for several reasons, he really wanted to be ruler of the world and be worshipped by his circle of "Friends" ([[spoiler:all to satisfy his craving for attention and hatred for Kenji]]). [[spoiler:The second one, however]], flat out intends to wipe out all of humanity. Despite pretending to [[spoiler:be Fukubei (The first one)]], he really doesn't care one bit about his ideals and doesn't even intend to save those who ''do'' support him. He truly wants to destroy the world and his last trap is an Anti-Proton Bomb.
* Folken in the movie version of ''Anime/TheVisionOfEscaflowne'' wants to destroy all of Gaea -- because he's just so depressed and just wants it all to end, even though he presents himself as a SocialDarwinist to his followers.
* ''Manga/{{Monster}}'' has a more realistic version of this in Johan Liebert, while his motives are left somewhat vague, his actions certainly suggest that his ultimate goal is the complete destruction of human society by manipulating everyone he comes across into killing themselves or each other.
* In ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', [[spoiler:after several timelines of amplified power, ''our cute protagonist'' becomes this in her Witch form, Kriemhild Gretchen. She wants to make everyone happy, but thinks the only way to achieve that is by killing them all.]]
* In ''Manga/RikiOh'', Mukai wants to wipe out the human race because he thinks that is the only way to end their suffering.
* [[spoiler:The [[EnemyWithin True Ashura]]]] in ''Manga/RGVeda'' only wishes to destroy everything in heaven, earth and hell because [[ApocalypseMaiden he's destined to it]] and [[ForTheEvulz has a natural drive]] towards destruction.
* ''Manga/FairyTail'':
** [[spoiler:Brain's other personality Zero]] doesn't care for [[TheChessmaster scheming]] or plans. He's just a powerful nutcase that wants to destroy everything for the sheer hell of it.
-->'''Gray:''' You asshole! You're going to attack a man who can't move?\\
'''Zero:''' It matters little if he can move or otherwise. AS LONG AS HE HAS A PHYSICAL FORM, DESTROYING HIM IS WORTH ENJOYING!
** Zeref, after constantly being rejected by the world, chooses to reject the world instead and wipe out humanity.
** Acnologia. The present storyline has him content with just flying around and destroying stuff and people at random, but [[spoiler:Zeref]] implies that he wants to wipe out the rest of humanity as well.
* [[spoiler:Togo]] tries to destroy [[spoiler:what's left of]] the Earth towards the end of ''Anime/YukiYunaIsAHero'' after [[spoiler:finding out the AwfulTruth about the world]]. She's a sympathetic variant as [[spoiler:she wants to MercyKill herself and her friends, stop others from becoming Heroes and having similar faiths, and accelerate the seemingly inevitable demise of the planet]]. Ultimately, [[spoiler:her friends convince her not to go on with her plan]].
* As lighthearted as he's portrayed, Fujimoto from ''Anime/PonyoOnTheCliffByTheSea'' still wants to KillAllHumans in a GaiasVengeance plot.
* ''Anime/CrossAnge'' has [[PhysicalGod Embryo]] who wants to wipe off everything from two parallel universes and reset it. He claims it's to [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist make every human equal and perfect but it's very clear he has no care for them]] and is more doing it to [[AGodAmI strike his own ego]].

* ''Franchise/DragonBall'':
** Anyone of importance in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' [[EarthShatteringKaboom can blow up planets]]. However, only Majin Buu seems intent on undoing all of creation [[ForTheEvulz merely out of malice, spite, boredom]], [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and inability to get ice cream]]. And that was [[TheSociopath before he got rid of his conscience]].
** Cell planned on becoming one of these after
In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', [[WarGod Mars]], [[Franchise/WonderWoman the Cell Games. Once he was finished having his fun on Earth, he planned Amazons']] ancient enemy intends to destroy it, then travel to other planets Earth, killing everybody and repeat the process. But he was killed before he could get started. His motive was relocate all souls to a kind of Valhalla where they'll fight forever, keeping him eternally fed.
-->'''Mars:''' Mars is not tied to Earth. Mars is tied to war. And what better war than
that as of vast empires within the UltimateLifeForm, his true purpose was to cause second Heaven? Where billions may die, billions more be enslaved, and the bloodflow which results nourishes my power with every drop. No. Earth is unnecessary. A canker in my being. When it is destroyed, only my pain will vanish.
* ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': Crowned Death's cult revolves around decrying 'the blight that is life' and celebrateing 'the beauty of death,
the end of all life.
** Broly blew up an entire galaxy,
existence'. Mukrezar, upon his resurrection, notes tongue-in-cheek that Crowned Death's followers continue to spread that very message... even after death. Mukrezar himself probably qualifies, though his antics seem to be more motivated by ItAmusedMe than any desire for destruction itself.
* In ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} fanfic ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', Satan Girl is Kara's evil duplicate created from her inner dark desires
and nearly did impulses, untempered by reason and compassion. She wants nothing but killing and destroying just because it amuses her.
-->Kryptonians could survive in space without a suit. Was that not a pleasure? It certainly was. She could live her life between the stars, and never once need to breathe.\\
She could devastate planets, wipe them clean of life. Rebuild them at her whim.\\
She could tyrannize worlds, whole systems of planets, make them bow to her mighty hand, instantly execute anyone who dared protest--or just anybody she wanted to kill.\\
She could explore pleasures of the body that Kara never would have dared to, satisfy lusts that the blonde beast never even knew she had. She could force herself upon any suitor, male or female or whatever, and destroy them after their job was done. Or perhaps just maim them, so that they could never again do such a job for anyone else. Satan Girl smiled. Now that was being imaginative...\\
She could have children from those couplings, or kill them in the womb.\\
She could become a goddess to an unsophisticated planet's people. Drinking in their worship, demanding sacrifice.\\
All of this she could do, she would do, and more.\\
For Kryptonians and Daxamites were gods, off their homeworlds. They really were. What a pity their morality forced them not to realize that fact.\\
She clasped her bent knees to her chest and thought. The problem was, in this time, she was hardly unique. Billions of Kryptonians existed on Rokyn. Billions more Daxamites, with
the same to "our" galaxy before the heroes stopped him.
** Majin Buu's fat form had no real aspirations of genocide,
power, existed on Daxam. Luckily, there was only killing because he was told to by [[TheManBehindTheMan Babidi]] and [[ObliviouslyEvil he didn't know it was wrong]]. His later forms, however, know full well one prisoner still left in the Phantom Zone, that they're doing evil, and enjoy it thoroughly:
*** Super Buu lived for two things: challenging fights, and eating sweets. When told to go kill off some humans
old poop Gazor, so as to give the heroes more time to train, he proceeds to launch a storm of energy blasts at the planet below that seek out and kill every last human not on the Lookout save three (Hercule/Mr. Satan, who there wasn't targeted because he befriended Buu, and Tien & Chiaotzu, who were able much competition there.\\
But, somehow, she'd have
to dodge the blasts). Even after gaining intelligence by absorbing Piccolo and Gohan, he still goes on a destructive spree of blowing up cities for fun (after [[SweetTooth eating the entire contents of]] [[VillainousGlutton every sweets shop in it first]]), lamenting that the lack of people means he can't enjoy their screams.
*** Kid Buu is ''considerably'' more unhinged, and is pure evil. A simple-minded being, being an Omnicidal Maniac is all he knows or cares about; he blows up the Earth simply because it is there, obliterates several other planets while searching for Goku & Vegeta, and then, once everyone in the vicinity is dead, he ''breaks into the Afterlife so he can keep killing''.
** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'': [[GodIsEvil Zamasu]], the renegade Kai from Universe 10. Zamasu sees mortal life as a mistake, and [[TheGodsMustBeLazy both the Kais and Gods of Destruction lazy]] for not doing
do something about both planets. Daxam would be easy. A shower of leaden hail across its surface, and the mortals. For awhile, it was simply mere rhetoric dead would litter the ground in heaps beyond Hitler's and musings. Then Zamasu was beaten Stalin's dreams.\\
That world would stink of corpses for eons to come.\\
She laughed soundlessly.
* There's [[spoiler:the S'Muz]] from ''Fanfic/TimeLordsAndTerror'', an EldritchAbomination that desires to consume all the life energy in not only the universe, but the ''multiverse''.
* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2846526/1/Sonic_X_Combine_Wars Sonic X: Combine Wars]], the final story
in a friendly duel series by none other than [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Son Goku]]. [[spoiler: Realizing [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/478240/Kojiokida2 Kojiokida2]], [[spoiler:Mephiles]] turns out to be trying to destroy all of existence.
* Played in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' with Tsali, who declares
that mortals had if he has to burn and murder the power to rival Gods, Zamasu started down a path he called his [[FinalSolution "Zero Mortals Plan"]]. To this end, [[KlingonPromotion he killed his mentor Gowasu, promoting himself to Supreme Kai of Universe 10]]. He then abused the Time Rings of the Kais entire universe to gain his revenge, [[AxCrazy he would be more than happy to do it]]. Only slaying fresh victims gives him any amount of wishes he desired hope for his future; the bloodier, the better.
** The Shroud wants to consume all life in the universe, with Dark Tails then intending to turn all life including the Shroud into [[TheCorruption Dark Chaos Energy]].
* [[EldritchAbomination Entropy]]
from the Super Dragon Balls AFTER he destroyed them and any other set of Dragon Balls in existence. This has resulted in multiple different timelines coming into being, [[WithUsOrAgainstUs ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' is one, but an interesting version.

Zamasu is apparently taking his time with executing the mortals because he feels that the pain and fear they must suffer through his attacks is [[KnightTemplar "justice"]]. It got so bad that Beerus intervened and killed one version of Zamasu before he got started and saved the present version of Gowasu. But as in most time travel stories, it didn't change the alternate future where Zamasu ran roughshod over creation. Towards the end of the Future Trunks arc this takes place in, Gowasu investigates universe, and sees a natural force of the universe. It's pretty much her ''job'' to be an Omnicidal Maniac. It's also worth noting she has no love for himself ''other'' {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s, as she desires for the carnage his former apprentice has committed. [[MadGod As Zamasu rants about his justice using barely coherent logic]] universe to end when it's ''supposed'' to, when it dies naturally of Heat Death. Most of the worlds she devours before then are {{Mercy Kill}}s.

Plus he was promised that the power released from the killed Dark Star would be granted to the local Dark Lord, Ruby-Eye Shabranigadu. It's left unclear whether that bargain was held or not, but if it was, then Xelloss definitely hastened the homemade Apocalypse by getting rid of the foreign product.
*** That deal about getting some of Dark Star's energy was never intended to be fulfilled, probably by both sides - nothing shows this more than the fact that Xelloss betrayed the Overworlders shortly after the deal even got mentioned.
*** Given that most Mazoku fight damn hard to stay alive, it's entirely possible that Fibrizo was simply nuts, and paying lip-service to the cause of universal destruction is the normal attitude of "sane" Mazoku.
* Rau Le Creuset of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'' isn't perhaps the most obvious, as his goals merely encompass the extinction of humanity, Natural and Coordinator alike. However, given the much smaller scale (the action never extends past Mars due to limited space travel), it's quite omnicidal in context. His motivation for this is that he believes that HumansAreBastards and have only limped along so far as they have because they have never possessed the means to wipe themselves out before now. He honestly believes that the human race as a whole deserves death, not just for his own [[CloningBlues admittedly sad life]] but for all the suffering they inflict upon others that he has seen. Given the atrocities committed by both sides in the war, and the genocidal ambitions of so many in the series, [[VillainHasAPoint it isn't hard to see his point]]. In the end, Le Creuset winds up one of the more terrifying examples of this character because his motivations are understandable: it is not impossible to see someone actually winding up with his worldview, rather than just wiping everything out because they're a CardCarryingVillain.
* ''Anime/SDGundamForce'' gives us the leader of the Dark Axis, General Zeong. His sole motivation is to become powerful enough to fire a beam that would wipe out all dimensions.
* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' seems to have at least one per season:
** ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' has Apocalymon. The name says it all. When he was defeated, he tried to unleash a blast that would eradicate the human world and the Digital World.
** ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02:'' BigBad ([[DiscOneFinalBoss or so we think at the time]]) Arukenimon's main plan is
decided to destroy the [[CosmicKeystone Cosmic Keystones]] that maintain the barriers between dimensions, ''everything'', which would cause all dimensions to collide, destroying the multiverse. Her intended [[TheDragon Dragon]] refuses to help on the grounds that she's an unworthy mistress, but is what eventually decides, for his own reasons, led to do the same, making him just as much of an Omnicidal Maniac.
** ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' features a non-Digimon AI that was designed to prevent other programs from exceeding their boundaries ('cause AIIsACrapshoot) by deleting them if they surpassed a certain stage of development. It decides all humans and Digimon meet criteria for deletion. Then it gets ''[[EldritchAbomination really]]'' [[TheHeartless nasty]].
** ''Anime/DigimonFrontier'': Lucemon is more of a digital EvilutionaryBiologist. The data that makes up Digital World's matter (and population) is easily manipulated, and it ''all'' had to be absorbed and used to release him

** ''Anime/DigimonSavers'', aka ''Digimon Data Squad,'' has Yggdrasil/King Drasil, the computer

When the previous arc's [[BigBad Big Bag's]] plan backfires and both worlds are going to collide, he's free, he's planning on picking up where he decides that the human world must go. When the Digimon fight against him and his minions to protect it, guess what he ''then'' decides? He, too, plans on restarting the Digital World after destroying the old one.
** ''Anime/DigimonXrosWars'' has Bagramon, who wants to remake both worlds in his image.

out its considerable amount of magic, [[BackFromTheDead rejuvenate a person with Book of Darkness somewhere else]], repeat.

* [[spoiler:Tirek]], the ManBehindTheMan in ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum''. His entire goal is to enslave and destroy all life. As the embodiment of the Element of Magic puts it.
-->'''Em:''' "There shall be nothing but [[spoiler:Tirek]] and he will die alone in a lifeless multiverse of rusting automata, and rejoice in that death."

The extent of Hokuto's plan throughout both acts is solely to resurrect Alucard to do just that, because he feels the Sliver Crystals exact same way.
* ''FanFic/TouhouIbunshu'''s version of Flandre Scarlet is an interesting twist on this trope. [[spoiler:As

* Clear Note, the final BigBad of ''Manga/ZatchBell'' manga, intends to become the new King of Demons solely so that he can use the associated privilege of erasing from existence any demons he doesn't like, to erase everyone indiscriminately.

* ''ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}}'':
** Braniac-5 pre-Crisis. After being driven mad, he wanted to destroy the entire universe, and stole the Miracle Machine that could do ''anything'' the user could envision. He could have easily destroyed the Earth, or even several planets of similar size, but he couldn't envision destruction on the grandiose scale he wanted. So he used the Machine to create something that could, [[TheJuggernaut the unstoppable]] [[ThePowerOfHate embodiment of hate]], [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Omega]]. Had this beast actually reached the Machine (and the Legion could do little to even slow it down) Braniac-5's plan would have succeeded; they foiled it when Matter-Eater Lad destroyed the Machine by eating it, [[HeroicSacrifice but was driven insane in the process.]]
** The Legion's foe Time Trapper has their desires and motivations subject to change alongside their mutable identity but at points, such as in ''ComicBook/CosmicBoy'', their goal is the erasure of all time between the entropy at the end of the universe they're a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personification of]] and that which came before, thereby erasing everything and everyone who has or ever will exist.
* Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}: Fenris the Wolf is Destruction personified (and likely an aspect of Destruction of the Endless). His goal is to destroy Creation by attacking the seat of God in Heaven. Lucifer stands in his way.

* One of the [[MultipleChoicePast four possible backstories]] for ComicBook/ThePhantomStranger given in his issue of "Secret Origins" features a mad scientist from the future who wants to time travel back to the Big Bang and prevent it from effectively occurring. So not only does he want to destroy the universe, he wants to make sure it ''never even existed in the first place.''

[[TykeBomb She was put in an assassin program]] where she was [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil forced to watch humanity's evil deeds: rape, murder, genocide, etc]]... She has the power to fracture/alter reality and wants to use the Earth as the center of a black hole to implode and collapse the entire multiverse.

Being an energy absorber, Winter became one with the sun. Trapped by eternal agony he lures out ComicBook/TheAuthority so they can finally put an end to his life; when it's deemed impossible to kill him without destroying the sun and ending the world, he became enraged.

!!!Marvel Comics
* ComicBook/{{Thanos}} is the most famous Franchise/MarvelUniverse example. He has a vision of [[TheGrimReaper Death]] as a beautiful woman and in order to win her favor he embarks on a quest to wreak death and destruction. Although he ''has'' stated on multiple occasions that the elimination of ''all'' life might destroy Death as well as it would eliminate her need to exist, so he would eliminate ''half'' of all life, thus ensuring Death still has a steady supply of souls.
** In ''ComicBook/TheThanosImperative'' Thanos goes completely insane when he realizes that [[spoiler:his ThanatosGambit to destroy the Cancer Verse also rendered him immortal, meaning he can never be with Death.]] He makes an earnest effort to wipe out all life in the Marvel-616 Verse [[spoiler:and has to be sealed in what's left of the Cancer Verse to stop him from pulling it off.]]
* On a more planetary scale, ComicBook/{{Onslaught}} started out as a [[KillAllHumans mutant supremacist]] of the same stripe as his psychic 'father', Magneto. After seeing the Age of Apocalypse in Bishop's memories, in which mutants really did rule the world and destroyed it, he decided no one was worthy.
* Abraxas also hails from the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. The antithesis of Eternity, it exists only to destroy anything and everything in all creation. Keeping it imprisoned is one of the reasons ComicBook/{{Galactus}} needs the life energy from devoured worlds. The one time Abraxas ''did'' break free it...wasn't pretty.
* Annihilus, also from the MarvelUniverse, became one of these during the ''ComicBook/{{Annihilation}}''. His vast fleets carved a path of devastation across the galaxy, used a large, tick-like weapon called the Harvester of Sorrows to drain entire planets of their energy to ''feed'' on, nearly wiped out the Kree and Skrull empires, and (with the help of Thanos and two cosmic superbeings) imprisoned ''Galactus himself''. Why is he an Omnicidal Maniac instead of just another alien conqueror? Annihilus' true motivation for capturing Galactus was to [[spoiler: turn him into a ''bomb''. A bomb that would kill ''everything in the universe except for himself'']]. What's truly scary is that he came damn close to pulling it off too.
* SpiderMan's ArchEnemy Dr. Octopus became this during the "ComicBook/{{Ends of the Earth}}" storyline. Knowing he was dying, his plan was to use powerful satellite weapons to kill 99% percent of the population of the Earth so that the remaining 1% and all of their descendents would remember him forever. He nearly succeeded. However, just as he was about to pull the switch, Spider-Man pointed out a flaw in his plan: the incredible heat caused by the weapons would leave all the survivors brain-dead. This revelation caused Octopus to hesitate long enough for the hero to pummel him into unconsciousness.
* All of the Elders of the Universe of Marvel Comics came up with a purpose to keep from going mad from their immortality, but one of them, the Obliterator, was clearly insane from the start. After murdering his entire species, he wandered the universe looking for things to kill, using his powerful high-tech weapons to shoot at anything that moved. (Except the other Elders, the only beings who come close to being his allies.) Fortunately for the universe at large, he has no real confirmed super-powers other than the immortality that all the Elders have (possibly making him the least powerful of the group) and is also not very smart.
* Amatsu-Mikaboshi from the ComicBook/ChaosWar CrisisCrossover is also this. He existed long before the universe did and, in the Chaos War, wants to return things to that state. Marvel sure is in love with this trope.
* Amodeus Q. Termineus from the Marvel universe sought the shattered fragments of the Nexus of all Realities. With them in possession he could destroy the Multiverse.
* The Cult of Entropy seeks to speed up the destruction of the Marvel Universe/Multiverse.
* Maelstrom from the Marvel universe. He's the champion of Oblivion and constantly schemes to destroy everything.
* According to [[DependingOnTheWriter some versions]] of the character (particularly the [[Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX MAX universe]]), if Comicbook/ThePunisher were given enough time and ammo he would kill every person on Earth.
-->'''The Punisher''': The [[HumansAreBastards human race.]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt You've seen where that leads to.]]
* ''ComicBook/XMen92'': OriginalGeneration villain Xodus the Forgotten combines this trope with FinalSolution, as he is a FantasticRacist Celestial who traveled from world to world exterminating any and all {{Mutant}} populations until his Celestial brethren made him a SealedEvilInACan. Predictably, the seal is broken and he heads to Earth to pick right back up where he left off.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Haazheel Thorn's initial plan is to bring about HellOnEarth. When this fails, he uses his dark magic to ensure that [[ColonyDrop the Black Moon will crash into the Earth]] and destroy all life.
* ''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.
* ''ComicBook/CliveBarkersNextTestament'': Wick attempts to annihilate humanity after he sees nothing on Earth that is worth saving to his mind.
* Jarek from ''ComicBook/{{Dinocorps}}'', who strongly believes that anyone who isn't a Sauron like him deserves death. He blows up the world to kill off a race of dinosaurs, and then attempts to do it a second time in order to kill off all the humans.
* The Ogdru Jahad from ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' want to burn the Earth to a cinder
* John "Grimjack" Gaunt walks away from Heaven [[SenselessSacrifice to save his friends]]. The consequences were that he was denied any afterlife and was [[WhoWantsToLiveForever doomed to be reborn remembering his memories for all eternity]]. His soul was bound to the pan dimensional city known as Cynosure. Cynosure was build to harvest the energies of the multiverse to an entombed supreme being called [[TheMaker Dis]] (firstborn of the multiverse) until it was ready to repeat the birthing process in an unending cycle. [[FutureMeScaresMe Grimjack's latest incarnation]] travels back in time to warn himself of the doom and to [[DeathSeeker break it]] he has to end the multiverse by destroying Cynosure.[[spoiler: Future Grimjack succeeds in manipulating present John in freeing the Supreme being from his sleep.]] In Grimjack's second incarnation we see the Supreme being walking around in mortal form giving the demons the chance to end his life and let the multiverse die in entropy. They fail. A huge hint that the multiverse might end up destroyed can be seen in Grimjack's supposedly real father, his [[LukeIMightBeYourFather uncle Jack]]. He is a Fey and can look into the future. He describes to a young grimjack the complete dissolution of the multiverse, saying there will be "nothing" after that and also that Grimjack's death would be the most interesting of all. We never see if future Grimjack succeeds because the series ended with the death of the second incarnation.
* The ''[[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' comics have Dr. Finitevus, who firmly believes that the world is corrupt and needs to be "purified in emerald fire". That's the reason he [[ManipulativeBastard manipulated]] Knuckles into becoming the new [[PhysicalGod Enerjak]], knowing that the power would drive him crazy and lead to him going on a rampage. He hasn't tried anything major since, but he's still convinced of the righteousness of his actions and will probably try again.
** Then, Dr. Eggman, at the end of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'' did this ''accidentally.''
* In ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' destroying the world appeared to be the entire motivation of Knuckles' arch-enemy, the evil echidna [[MadScientist Dr. Zachary]]. When he first appeared, he boasted of his plans to locate and destroy the other echidnas ''after'' he had destroyed Mobius as a warm up, and [[CardCarryingVillain quite happily acknowledges]] the fact that [[AxCrazy he's evil]], and in ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline'' he manipulated [[AntiVillain Shadow the Hedgehog]] into destroying the Special Zone, and almost did the same to Mobius if it weren't for Sonic [[DealWithTheDevil asking for help from the Drakon Empire]].
** The only character who manages to be even ''more'' omnicidal than Zachary is Sonic's SuperpoweredEvilSide, Super Sonic, who had no real plan beyond destroying whatever was at hand when Sonic transformed.
** After a VillainousBreakdown Dr. Robotnik gives up trying to rule Mobius and tries to destroy it outright.
** In ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline'' there is also the God of Death Vichama.
* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'':
** ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
*** The [[EvilCounterpart Dark Judges]] have a philosophy that boils down to this. Undead psychopaths devoted to Law, they figure that since only the living commit crimes, life itself should be made a crime that is punishable by death. They slaughtered the entire population of their world, then found themselves stuck, as they hadn't any form of space travel, making them come off more as KillAllHumans in practice. They've killed the occasional alien traveler who made the mistake of visiting their world, though.
*** Sabbat the Necromancer from the ''Judgment Day'' arc is a powerful sorcerer who has made it his mission to destroy all life so he can use the corpses of the dead as part of his undead army.
** ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': The Overlord tells his acolytes in The Hierarchy that he is building the Infinity Engine, an InterdimensionalTravelDevice, so that they can [[MultiversalConqueror extend their evil reign through the entire multiverse]]. In fact, its real name is the God Engine, a DoomsdayDevice that will wipe out all of reality and leave only himself to create a new one that he will rule over as God.
* Ujo Dasa is a dark sorcerer from the Frazettaverse. He planned to free the Oblivion God "Mirahan" by sacrificing a half-breed human/demon and begin the end of everything. When confronted by his former teacher Dreovid, he says it's better to have "cool darkness than searing light".[[spoiler: In the end it was revealed that Ujo was the half-breed and son of Mirahan. The Oblivion God swapped his throne of netherhell with Ujo and we watch him rest in peace.]]
* In DC's take on ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'', Skeletor becomes this during the climax of "[[GrandFinale The Eternity War]]": [[spoiler: Having [[EvilerThanThou defeated Hordak]] and seized control of the power of Greyskull from him -- and having previously discovered that throughout TheMultiverse, he always loses to He-Man -- he intends to use his new status as a PhysicalGod to cheat the odds by killing everyone and everything, so that he can then rule over a universe of the dead unopposed.]]
* Lord Drakkon of ''ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangersShatteredGrid'' descends into this. [[spoiler:After murdering the main universe Tommy Oliver and causing the Ranger timeline to shatter into multiple universes, he proceeds to go on a rampage through the universes in order to gain enough power to hop into the realm of the Morphin Masters, steal one of their hearts and obliterate the multiverse to rebuild it in his image.]]
* The [[StrawNihilist Mad Angel Apolyon]] from the Chaos!Multiverse stole secret knowledge from God and uncovered the truth that [[GoMadFromTheRevelation nothing really matters]]. Lucifer fearing this truth imprisoned and [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil tortured]] Apolyon for a thousand years. After he was released God confided in him that for Heaven to exist, there must be a Hell. Apolyon betrays God and wants to destroy all of creation beginning with Hell. Without its counterpart, Heaven will fall and in turn so will God. In the end as Apolyon said, there will be nothing!
* Talita from Terror,Inc was trapped between [[FateWorseThanDeath life and death]] in [[TheNothingAfterDeath a void of blackness]] for 800 years. She went completely mad and came to love the Void. After she was resurrected she feared her commitment to the Void: ''"I feel...a strength coursing through me...yes...yes...I worried I might lose faith as the pain left me. I feel joy,strength,lust all raging through me...ALL PALE BEFORE THE EMPTINESS".'' Before she ends the world she wants to taste life followed by [[CessationOfExistence nothing]].
** [[HarbingerOfImpendingDoom Aban]], a [[PlagueMaster plague carrying immortal young boy]] wants to [[WhoWantsToLiveForever die]] but can't so in his frustration he wants to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum end the world]] hoping it would kill him. He refers to himself as a [[StrawNihilist true nihilist]] and [[ForTheEvulz enjoys killing]].
* Creator/ValiantComics:
** [[TheArchmage Master Darque]] from the new Valiant Universe. After destroying countless worlds he is coming for Earth. He wants to use the souls in Deadside to break down the barriers between worlds and kill every living being. Using all the souls to become a [[AGodAmI God]]: "''Every creature on this world raises its head against a background of infinite carnage and smiles at the sun and declares the world good. We are all monsters. Because the Universe we live in is monstrous. But we are blind to it. We do not see the endless horror that underpins our lives. Because [[GodIsEvil God is a sadist]]. The perversity of this reality is undeniable proof of both his existence and his malice. And it is our duty to become his superior. I will find him. I will challenge him. I will free us. I will make him pay for what he has done. I will break the wheel. I will end all suffering. And you would stop this?''". Darque only wants Godhood so he can erase all of existence and bring blessed Oblivion to everything, himself included.
** Deadside in the old Valiant Universe was a terrible place where all souls eventually come no matter how they lived be it good or evil.There is no Heaven nor Hell. Billions upon billions of souls trapped for all eternity [[AndIMustScream screaming in madness]]. In the new Valiant Universe it seems to be toned down a bit but it's still a terrible place where lost souls find no peace. Darque also comments on the nature of souls and its curse: "''Even the smallest of them. There is something in all of use that persists beyond death. You would call this a soul. The essence of a thing that is indestructible. Something that survives. Something that fears. Something that suffers. This is cruelty. This is madness. To know that your suffering will never end. Because that is the point of the soul. Suffering without limit. Without Surcease.''"
* [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]], the servant of [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Desire]] schemed to end the world/reality/time by manipulating [[MessianicArchetype Adam Case]]. He was not alone as he was backed by a group of mythological powers:
** [[MotherNature Coatlicue]], the Aztec earth mother goddess suffers immensely because of the pollution of the earth. The only way to stop the poison coursing through her veins is to destroy the world and she would gladly give her life for that purpose.
** [[JerkassGods Tezcatlipoca]], the Aztec god of night and confusion,betrayal,divination,etc...grew tired of life and decided to team up with [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] to obtain his one way to ticket to that [[CessationOfExistence "permanent vacation"]]. He changes his mind at the end of the series when he has found fun in screwing with people on [[ForTheEvulz "a personal level"]]. His lover "Leatherette" follows suit and betrays [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] .
** Leatherette, a demon who works directly under [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] and shares Tezcatlipoca's reason for ending the world. The two eventually find purpose in [[ForTheEvulz raising hell on earth]] and betray [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]].
** Tantalus was cursed by having immense desire and never be able to fulfill it. He was betrayed at the last battle and found momentary peace at the hands of [[PlagueMaster Enna]] when he shot him up with heroin.
** Enna, an old Babylonian [[PlagueMaster Plague God]] has adapted to the modern times and delivers plagues of pharmecuetical origin like heroin. Only when he has dipped into his own pharmacuetical supply does he refuse to help [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] end time. His new plan is to destroy [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] but is stopped by [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Desire]] herself.
** [[JapaneseSpirit Yuki-Onna]] and [[PhysicalGod Hephaestus]].
* Skynet in ''Comicbook/RoboCopVersusTheTerminator'' becomes this in one timeline where it managed to KillAllHumans. It sends out fleets of starships to kill ''everything else''.

His vast fleets carved a path of devastation across the galaxy, used a large, tick-like weapon called the Harvester of Sorrows to drain entire planets of their energy to ''feed'' on, nearly wiped out the Kree and Skrull empires, and (with the help of Thanos and two cosmic superbeings) imprisoned ''Galactus himself''. Why is he an Omnicidal Maniac instead of just another alien conqueror? Annihilus' true motivation for capturing Galactus was to [[spoiler: turn him into a ''bomb''. A bomb that would kill ''everything in the universe except for himself'']]. What's truly scary is that he came damn close to pulling it off too.
* SpiderMan's ArchEnemy Dr. Octopus became this during the "ComicBook/{{Ends of the Earth}}" storyline. Knowing he was dying, his plan was to use powerful satellite weapons to kill 99% percent of the population of the Earth so that the remaining 1% and all of their descendents would remember him forever. He nearly succeeded. However, just as he was about to pull the switch, Spider-Man pointed out a flaw in his plan: the incredible heat caused by the weapons would leave all the survivors brain-dead. This revelation caused Octopus to hesitate long enough for the hero to pummel him into unconsciousness.
* All of the Elders of the Universe of Marvel Comics came up with a purpose to keep from going mad from their immortality, but one of them, the Obliterator, was clearly insane from the start. After murdering his entire species, he wandered the universe looking for things to kill, using his powerful high-tech weapons to shoot at anything that moved. (Except the other Elders, the only beings who come close to being his allies.) Fortunately for the universe at large, he has no real confirmed super-powers other than the immortality that all the Elders have (possibly making him the least powerful of the group) and is also not very smart.
* Amatsu-Mikaboshi from the ComicBook/ChaosWar CrisisCrossover is also this. He existed long before the universe did and, in the Chaos War, wants to return things to that state. Marvel sure is in love with this trope.
* Amodeus Q. Termineus from the Marvel universe sought the shattered fragments of the Nexus of all Realities. With them in possession he could destroy the Multiverse.
* The Cult of Entropy seeks to speed up the destruction of the Marvel Universe/Multiverse.
* Maelstrom from the Marvel universe. He's the champion of Oblivion and constantly schemes to destroy everything.
* According to [[DependingOnTheWriter some versions]] of the character (particularly the [[Comicbook/ThePunisherMAX MAX universe]]), if Comicbook/ThePunisher were given enough time and ammo he would kill every person on Earth.
-->'''The Punisher''': The [[HumansAreBastards human race.]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt You've seen where that leads to.]]
* ''ComicBook/XMen92'': OriginalGeneration villain Xodus the Forgotten combines this trope with FinalSolution, as he is a FantasticRacist Celestial who traveled from world to world exterminating any and all {{Mutant}} populations until his Celestial brethren made him a SealedEvilInACan. Predictably, the seal is broken and he heads to Earth to pick right back up where he left off.

* ''ComicBook/BlackMoonChronicles'': Haazheel Thorn's initial plan is to bring about HellOnEarth. When this fails, he uses his dark magic to ensure that [[ColonyDrop the Black Moon will crash into the Earth]] and destroy all life.
* ''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.
* ''ComicBook/CliveBarkersNextTestament'': Wick attempts to annihilate humanity after he sees nothing on Earth that is worth saving to his mind.
* Jarek from ''ComicBook/{{Dinocorps}}'', who strongly believes that anyone who isn't a Sauron like him deserves death. He blows up the world to kill off a race of dinosaurs, and then attempts to do it a second time in order to kill off all the humans.
* The Ogdru Jahad from ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' want to burn the Earth to a cinder
* John "Grimjack" Gaunt walks away from Heaven [[SenselessSacrifice to save his friends]]. The consequences were that he was denied any afterlife and was [[WhoWantsToLiveForever doomed to be reborn remembering his memories for all eternity]]. His soul was bound to the pan dimensional city known as Cynosure. Cynosure was build to harvest the energies of the multiverse to an entombed supreme being called [[TheMaker Dis]] (firstborn of the multiverse) until it was ready to repeat the birthing process in an unending cycle. [[FutureMeScaresMe Grimjack's latest incarnation]] travels back in time to warn himself of the doom and to [[DeathSeeker break it]] he has to end the multiverse by destroying Cynosure.[[spoiler: Future Grimjack succeeds in manipulating present John in freeing the Supreme being from his sleep.]] In Grimjack's second incarnation we see the Supreme being walking around in mortal form giving the demons the chance to end his life and let the multiverse die in entropy. They fail. A huge hint that the multiverse might end up destroyed can be seen in Grimjack's supposedly real father, his [[LukeIMightBeYourFather uncle Jack]]. He is a Fey and can look into the future. He describes to a young grimjack the complete dissolution of the multiverse, saying there will be "nothing" after that and also that Grimjack's death would be the most interesting of all. We never see if future Grimjack succeeds because the series ended with the death of the second incarnation.
* The ''[[Comicbook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' comics have Dr. Finitevus, who firmly believes that the world is corrupt and needs to be "purified in emerald fire". That's the reason he [[ManipulativeBastard manipulated]] Knuckles into becoming the new [[PhysicalGod Enerjak]], knowing that the power would drive him crazy and lead to him going on a rampage. He hasn't tried anything major since, but he's still convinced of the righteousness of his actions and will probably try again.
** Then, Dr. Eggman, at the end of ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'' did this ''accidentally.''
* In ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' destroying the world appeared to be the entire motivation of Knuckles' arch-enemy, the evil echidna [[MadScientist Dr. Zachary]]. When he first appeared, he boasted of his plans to locate and destroy the other echidnas ''after'' he had destroyed Mobius as a warm up, and [[CardCarryingVillain quite happily acknowledges]] the fact that [[AxCrazy he's evil]], and in ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline'' he manipulated [[AntiVillain Shadow the Hedgehog]] into destroying the Special Zone, and almost did the same to Mobius if it weren't for Sonic [[DealWithTheDevil asking for help from the Drakon Empire]].
** The only character who manages to be even ''more'' omnicidal than Zachary is Sonic's SuperpoweredEvilSide, Super Sonic, who had no real plan beyond destroying whatever was at hand when Sonic transformed.
** After a VillainousBreakdown Dr. Robotnik gives up trying to rule Mobius and tries to destroy it outright.
** In ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline'' there is also the God of Death Vichama.
* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'':
** ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'':
*** The [[EvilCounterpart Dark Judges]] have a philosophy that boils down to this. Undead psychopaths devoted to Law, they figure that since only the living commit crimes, life itself should be made a crime that is punishable by death. They slaughtered the entire population of their world, then found themselves stuck, as they hadn't any form of space travel, making them come off more as KillAllHumans in practice. They've killed the occasional alien traveler who made the mistake of visiting their world, though.
*** Sabbat the Necromancer from the ''Judgment Day'' arc is a powerful sorcerer who has made it his mission to destroy all life so he can use the corpses of the dead as part of his undead army.
** ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': The Overlord tells his acolytes in The Hierarchy that he is building the Infinity Engine, an InterdimensionalTravelDevice, so that they can [[MultiversalConqueror extend their evil reign through the entire multiverse]]. In fact, its real name is the God Engine, a DoomsdayDevice that will wipe out all of reality and leave only himself to create a new one that he will rule over as God.
* Ujo Dasa is a dark sorcerer from the Frazettaverse. He planned to free the Oblivion God "Mirahan" by sacrificing a half-breed human/demon and begin the end of everything. When confronted by his former teacher Dreovid, he says it's better to have "cool darkness than searing light".[[spoiler: In the end it was revealed that Ujo was the half-breed and son of Mirahan. The Oblivion God swapped his throne of netherhell with Ujo and we watch him rest in peace.]]
* In DC's take on ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'', Skeletor becomes this during the climax of "[[GrandFinale The Eternity War]]": [[spoiler: Having [[EvilerThanThou defeated Hordak]] and seized control of the power of Greyskull from him -- and having previously discovered that throughout TheMultiverse, he always loses to He-Man -- he intends to use his new status as a PhysicalGod to cheat the odds by killing everyone and everything, so that he can then rule over a universe of the dead unopposed.]]
* Lord Drakkon of ''ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangersShatteredGrid'' descends into this. [[spoiler:After murdering the main universe Tommy Oliver and causing the Ranger timeline to shatter into multiple universes, he proceeds to go on a rampage through the universes in order to gain enough power to hop into the realm of the Morphin Masters, steal one of their hearts and obliterate the multiverse to rebuild it in his image.]]
* The [[StrawNihilist Mad Angel Apolyon]] from the Chaos!Multiverse stole secret knowledge from God and uncovered the truth that [[GoMadFromTheRevelation nothing really matters]]. Lucifer fearing this truth imprisoned and [[BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil tortured]] Apolyon for a thousand years. After he was released God confided in him that for Heaven to exist, there must be a Hell. Apolyon betrays God and wants to destroy all of creation beginning with Hell. Without its counterpart, Heaven will fall and in turn so will God. In the end as Apolyon said, there will be nothing!
* Talita from Terror,Inc was trapped between [[FateWorseThanDeath life and death]] in [[TheNothingAfterDeath a void of blackness]] for 800 years. She went completely mad and came to love the Void. After she was resurrected she feared her commitment to the Void: ''"I feel...a strength coursing through me...yes...yes...I worried I might lose faith as the pain left me. I feel joy,strength,lust all raging through me...ALL PALE BEFORE THE EMPTINESS".'' Before she ends the world she wants to taste life followed by [[CessationOfExistence nothing]].
** [[HarbingerOfImpendingDoom Aban]], a [[PlagueMaster plague carrying immortal young boy]] wants to [[WhoWantsToLiveForever die]] but can't so in his frustration he wants to [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum end the world]] hoping it would kill him. He refers to himself as a [[StrawNihilist true nihilist]] and [[ForTheEvulz enjoys killing]].
* Creator/ValiantComics:
** [[TheArchmage Master Darque]] from the new Valiant Universe. After destroying countless worlds he is coming for Earth. He wants to use the souls in Deadside to break down the barriers between worlds and kill every living being. Using all the souls to become a [[AGodAmI God]]: "''Every creature on this world raises its head against a background of infinite carnage and smiles at the sun and declares the world good. We are all monsters. Because the Universe we live in is monstrous. But we are blind to it. We do not see the endless horror that underpins our lives. Because [[GodIsEvil God is a sadist]]. The perversity of this reality is undeniable proof of both his existence and his malice. And it is our duty to become his superior. I will find him. I will challenge him. I will free us. I will make him pay for what he has done. I will break the wheel. I will end all suffering. And you would stop this?''". Darque only wants Godhood so he can erase all of existence and bring blessed Oblivion to everything, himself included.
** Deadside in the old Valiant Universe was a terrible place where all souls eventually come no matter how they lived be it good or evil.There is no Heaven nor Hell. Billions upon billions of souls trapped for all eternity [[AndIMustScream screaming in madness]]. In the new Valiant Universe it seems to be toned down a bit but it's still a terrible place where lost souls find no peace. Darque also comments on the nature of souls and its curse: "''Even the smallest of them. There is something in all of use that persists beyond death. You would call this a soul. The essence of a thing that is indestructible. Something that survives. Something that fears. Something that suffers. This is cruelty. This is madness. To know that your suffering will never end. Because that is the point of the soul. Suffering without limit. Without Surcease.''"
* [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]], the servant of [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Desire]] schemed to end the world/reality/time by manipulating [[MessianicArchetype Adam Case]]. He was not alone as he was backed by a group of mythological powers:
** [[MotherNature Coatlicue]], the Aztec earth mother goddess suffers immensely because of the pollution of the earth. The only way to stop the poison coursing through her veins is to destroy the world and she would gladly give her life for that purpose.
** [[JerkassGods Tezcatlipoca]], the Aztec god of night and confusion,betrayal,divination,etc...grew tired of life and decided to team up with [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] to obtain his one way to ticket to that [[CessationOfExistence "permanent vacation"]]. He changes his mind at the end of the series when he has found fun in screwing with people on [[ForTheEvulz "a personal level"]]. His lover "Leatherette" follows suit and betrays [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] .
** Leatherette, a demon who works directly under [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] and shares Tezcatlipoca's reason for ending the world. The two eventually find purpose in [[ForTheEvulz raising hell on earth]] and betray [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]].
** Tantalus was cursed by having immense desire and never be able to fulfill it. He was betrayed at the last battle and found momentary peace at the hands of [[PlagueMaster Enna]] when he shot him up with heroin.
** Enna, an old Babylonian [[PlagueMaster Plague God]] has adapted to the modern times and delivers plagues of pharmecuetical origin like heroin. Only when he has dipped into his own pharmacuetical supply does he refuse to help [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] end time. His new plan is to destroy [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Pain]] but is stopped by [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Desire]] herself.
** [[JapaneseSpirit Yuki-Onna]] and [[PhysicalGod Hephaestus]].
* Skynet in ''Comicbook/RoboCopVersusTheTerminator'' becomes this in one timeline where it managed to KillAllHumans. It sends out fleets of starships to kill ''everything else''.



[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' fanfic ''Fanfic/AForceOfFour'', [[WarGod Mars]], [[Franchise/WonderWoman the Amazons']] ancient enemy intends to destroy Earth, killing everybody and relocate all souls to a kind of Valhalla where they'll fight forever, keeping him eternally fed.
-->'''Mars:''' Mars is not tied to Earth. Mars is tied to war. And what better war than that of vast empires within the second Heaven? Where billions may die, billions more be enslaved, and the bloodflow which results nourishes my power with every drop. No. Earth is unnecessary. A canker in my being. When it is destroyed, only my pain will vanish.
* ''FanFic/DungeonKeeperAmi'': Crowned Death's cult revolves around decrying 'the blight that is life' and celebrateing 'the beauty of death, the end of existence'. Mukrezar, upon his resurrection, notes tongue-in-cheek that Crowned Death's followers continue to spread that very message... even after death. Mukrezar himself probably qualifies, though his antics seem to be more motivated by ItAmusedMe than any desire for destruction itself.
* In ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} fanfic ''Fanfic/HellsisterTrilogy'', Satan Girl is Kara's evil duplicate created from her inner dark desires and impulses, untempered by reason and compassion. She wants nothing but killing and destroying just because it amuses her.
-->Kryptonians could survive in space without a suit. Was that not a pleasure? It certainly was. She could live her life between the stars, and never once need to breathe.\\
She could devastate planets, wipe them clean of life. Rebuild them at her whim.\\
She could tyrannize worlds, whole systems of planets, make them bow to her mighty hand, instantly execute anyone who dared protest--or just anybody she wanted to kill.\\
She could explore pleasures of the body that Kara never would have dared to, satisfy lusts that the blonde beast never even knew she had. She could force herself upon any suitor, male or female or whatever, and destroy them after their job was done. Or perhaps just maim them, so that they could never again do such a job for anyone else. Satan Girl smiled. Now that was being imaginative...\\
She could have children from those couplings, or kill them in the womb.\\
She could become a goddess to an unsophisticated planet's people. Drinking in their worship, demanding sacrifice.\\
All of this she could do, she would do, and more.\\
For Kryptonians and Daxamites were gods, off their homeworlds. They really were. What a pity their morality forced them not to realize that fact.\\
She clasped her bent knees to her chest and thought. The problem was, in this time, she was hardly unique. Billions of Kryptonians existed on Rokyn. Billions more Daxamites, with the same power, existed on Daxam. Luckily, there was only one prisoner still left in the Phantom Zone, that old poop Gazor, so there wasn't much competition there.\\
But, somehow, she'd have to do something about both planets. Daxam would be easy. A shower of leaden hail across its surface, and the dead would litter the ground in heaps beyond Hitler's and Stalin's dreams.\\
That world would stink of corpses for eons to come.\\
She laughed soundlessly.
* There's [[spoiler:the S'Muz]] from ''Fanfic/TimeLordsAndTerror'', an EldritchAbomination that desires to consume all the life energy in not only the universe, but the ''multiverse''.
* In [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2846526/1/Sonic_X_Combine_Wars Sonic X: Combine Wars]], the final story in a series by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/478240/Kojiokida2 Kojiokida2]], [[spoiler:Mephiles]] turns out to be trying to destroy all of existence.
* Played in ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' with Tsali, who declares that if he has to burn and murder the entire universe to gain his revenge, [[AxCrazy he would be more than happy to do it]]. Only slaying fresh victims gives him any hope for his future; the bloodier, the better.
** The Shroud wants to consume all life in the universe, with Dark Tails then intending to turn all life including the Shroud into [[TheCorruption Dark Chaos Energy]].
* [[EldritchAbomination Entropy]] from the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'' is one, but an interesting version. She's not actually evil, she's just ''literally'' the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the end of the universe, and a natural force of the universe. It's pretty much her ''job'' to be an Omnicidal Maniac. It's also worth noting she has no love for ''other'' {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s, as she desires for the universe to end when it's ''supposed'' to, when it dies naturally of Heat Death. Most of the worlds she devours before then are {{Mercy Kill}}s.
** We eventually see the rise of another one in the [[BadFuture Dark World]]. [[spoiler: [[PsychopathicManchild Fluttercruel]], upon witnessing Rancor betraying Discord--mortally wounding him to steal Destruction's power--suffers a VillainousBreakdown; unwilling to believe her aunt would betray family, she blames everything on the heroes. She then absorbs the Shadows of Existence, [[OneWingedAngel turns into a full Draconequus]], and says she's going to kill them and ''everything else'' until she and her father are all that's left.]]
** [[spoiler: Nightmare [[IHaveManyNames Eclipse/Paradox]]]], also in Dark World, is one of these ''incidentally'' to her plans. [[spoiler: She's so obsessed with [[HeWhoFightsMonsters punishing Discord]] that she's trapped him in a GroundhogDayLoop; every time the loop is restarted, that version of Dark World is erased, condemning its inhabitants to Entropy's realm.]] And she [[MoralMyopia doesn't care at all]].
** As shown in a flashback episode to the FinalBattle of the Age of Myths (G1), there was [[spoiler: Lilith, the First Witch, a [[EldritchAbomination being of such power]] and [[MadeOfEvil pure evil]] that she could and would have drained the life from the whole world, leaving nothing but dust and {{living shadow}}s that would exist only to serve her.]]
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Gravemoss, an insane, immortal [[EvilAlbino albino]] [[LightIsNotGood Light Elf]] [[WhiteHairBlackHeart necromancer]] who wants to kill everything. He's implied that he's a former associate of Thanos. And he's got hold of [[ArtifactOfDoom the Darkhold.]] When he was already boxing in Loki's class, magic wise. Yup, creation is screwed.
** [[spoiler: Surtur]], the original Dark Phoenix, [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity was driven insane by the power]] and became convinced that the universe was flawed, and that only they could make it better. By utterly destroying it and starting over, of course.
* ''FanFic/InnerDemons'': [[spoiler: When [[BigBad Twilight]] [[FaceHeelTurn Sparkle]] hits her VillainousBreakdown as a result of watching [[TheDragon Trixie]] die in front of her and subsequently [[OneWingedAngel transforms into an Alicorn]], she declares that if she can't be Equestria's ruler, she'll be its destroyer, before setting out to release the [[LegionsOfHell hordes of Tartarus]].]]
* Red Cyclone in ''Fanfic/AceCombatTheEquestrianWar'' sees ponies as weaklings and wouldn't like to think of them as anything other than an extinct race. In chapter 19, he goes as far as [[spoiler: trying to detonate a burst missile above Fortress Intimidation, which would inevitably catch other griffins in its explosions]]. When Zeakros informs him of that, what is his response?
--> '''Red Cyclone''': Like I care. So what if a few griffins need to be sacrificed? If it will mean the destruction of those pathetic ponies, then Iíll take that chance! Besides, they’re nothing but expendable pawns to me. [[WeHaveReserves I can replace them easily]].
* [[spoiler:[[Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark Peter Ludlow]], the ''real'' BigBad]] of ''FanFic/RiseOfTheGaleforces'', [[spoiler: intends to destroy ALL non-human life [[FridgeLogic (somehow)]], and probably doom the entire human race in the process. Why? [[DisproportionateRetribution Because he lost his family in a plane crash caused by a bird flying into the engine.]]]]
* ''[[Fanfic/AFutureOfFriendshipAHistoryOfHate A Future of Friendship, A History of Hate]]'': Back at the dawn of time, the other [[BenevolentPrecursors Sentiox]] were sickened by [[BigBad Ruinate]] intentionally making Equestria a CrapsackWorld, so took control of it away from him and gave it to his sister [[BigGood Amity]]. This caused him to destroy several of their worlds to spite them... at which point he discovered he ''liked'' destroying worlds. At that point, he decided to destroy ''everything'', which is what eventually led to him being [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]]. Now that he's free, he's planning on picking up where he left off as soon as he's done returning Equestria to the way it was under his initial rule.
* ''FanFic/TheBridge'':
** The BigBad [[spoiler: Bagan]] wants nothing but this, thinking that life is a mistake and that death is the only way to "free" trapped souls from mortal flesh.
---> '''[[spoiler: Bagan]]''': "To unmake a world... the first of many..."
** Just like his film counterpart, Grand King Ghidorah (and his deceased brother [=DesGhidorah=]) wanders the universe casually wiping out planets both ForTheEvulz and to feed on the souls of the inhabitants.
** In the spin-off ''The Bridge: Sound of Thunder'', Mothra Lea's evil MirrorUniverse counterpart Battra Lea is this. Her father was obsessed with wiping out the planet's biosphere and her mother was obsessed with wiping out all mortals, and she inherited both of their natures.
* One of the [[Franchise/PrettyCure Precure]] villains, [[Anime/SmilePrettyCure Joker]], graduates from a HopeCrusher to an Omnicidal Maniac in the CrossOver ''FanFic/ShatteredSkiesTheMorningLights''. Losing his faith in his creator, dying, meeting the UltimateEvil in the afterlife, learning of the existence of a whole [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]] of {{MagicalGirl}}s, and being resurrected [[AxCrazy does a number on his already-questionable sanity]].
* In ''Fanfic/TheTwoSidesOfDaringDo'', it's revealed Ahuizotl is this. He's a sadistic psychopath who considers the prospect of being the only living thing left on a DeathWorld to be a beautiful image. Naturally, Yearling and her clone both consider him a lunatic, but Yearling points out a person with this motivation is much scarier in real life than it sounds like on paper. [[spoiler:His plan this time is to use the Belt of Atlas and the remaining Rings of Scorchero to steal the Princesses' power and use them to fry the world.]]
* [[spoiler:Tirek]], the ManBehindTheMan in ''Fanfic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum''. His entire goal is to enslave and destroy all life. As the embodiment of the Element of Magic puts it.
-->'''Em:''' "There shall be nothing but [[spoiler:Tirek]] and he will die alone in a lifeless multiverse of rusting automata, and rejoice in that death."
* ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory'' has Nightmare Umbra, a WarGod and implied SocialDarwinist, who has judged the world as weak and decided to turn everything to ash.
** To a lesser extent, [[DarkActionGirl Charisma]], who was has a "killer glyph" [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds that is constantly trying to drive her into killing everyone around her.]] [[spoiler: And thanks to [[ManipulativeBastard Max]] [[TheSociopath Cash]] giving her the corrupted element of loyalty, she ''would have kill everyone'', if not for the heroes stopping her.]]
* In ''FanFic/TheStoryToEndAllStories'', the villain attempts to wipe out all of fiction.
* ''FanFic/{{Webwork}}'' has [[spoiler: Simon Leston]] the new Squid Khan General. Already a MisanthropeSupreme when human, post transformation he intends to use the powers now at his disposal to wipe out humanity and everything else on the planet, [[ForTheEvulz simply because he can]].
* ''FanFic/RosarioVampireBrightestDarkness Acts III and IV'': As stated in the backstory, even before he became the [[EldritchAbomination monstrous destroyer he is now]], Alucard developed a hatred of all life forms, human and monster alike, seeing them as a plague that needed to be wiped out; he even went so far as to turn himself ''into'' a monstrous destroyer to this end. The extent of Hokuto's plan throughout both acts is solely to resurrect Alucard to do just that, because he feels the exact same way.
* ''FanFic/TouhouIbunshu'''s version of Flandre Scarlet is an interesting twist on this trope. [[spoiler:As in canon, she's been sealed into the mansion's basement for her extreme power and zero ability to restrain herself, but the real triggers for attempting to vaporize Gensokyo are her pure, unyielding love for her elder sister and said sister's [[LargeHam love of drama]]. See, Remilia's constant talk of damnation, Hell and her hate of God frightened the otherwise innocent Flandre into believing God viewed their existence as sin (guaranteeing them a place in Hell) and convinced her killing everyone and everything would put them beyond His grasp.]]
* In ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', after [[spoiler: [[FallenHero Jade]] is [[SealedEvilInACan permanently sealed]]]], [[TheDragon Zaben]] ends up [[VillainousBreakdown completely losing it]]. Coming to the conclusion that [[StrawNihilist life is meaningless and cruel]], he decides to PutThemAllOutOfMyMisery by using the Elemental Seal and three of the Sun Souls to amplify the power of the "Omega: The End" card (which can RetGone people and things from existence) to the point it can destroy the entire universe.
* In ''FanFic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', the story begins when Cyrus, the head of Team Galactic, is revealed to have been taken outside of time, allowing him to gain the power to warp reality and eventually unmake existence; aside from Cyrus, the only depicted survivors of this attack are Arceus, the Pokémon equivalent of God, and Ash Ketchum, who was rescued by Arceus at the last minute and sent back in time to a reset history to hopefully stop Cyrus gaining that power again.
* ''FanFic/BringMeToLife'': [[spoiler: [[UltimateEvil The First's]] endgame is to use a [[WhenThePlanetsAlign cosmic alignment]] known as the Awakening to access the Eye of Creation and use its raw power to destroy TheMultiverse. Then, it intends to create a new reality in its own image.]]
* ''FanFic/{{Harmless}}'' has [[BigBad Ammit]], an [[AncientEvil ancient]] and [[PhysicalGod powerful]] ghost who intends to wipe out everything (living and ghost alike) just because he [[BloodKnight enjoys killing]] and is in search of a WorthyOpponent.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Implied to be the case with the lich tyrant the Horned King from ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron''. His goal: raise an undead army to conquer and enslave the world. He sacrifices his living servants to the Cauldron Born and triumphantly boasts that "our" time has finally come when he raises them, meaning he wants to rule as a god-king over the dead (specifically that every living being will be reduced to a mindless corpse automaton leaving him as the only intelligent life-form in a giant graveyard).
* In ''Disney/AtlantisMilosReturn'', a ''non-malicious'' example is poor, insane, all-powerful Erik Hellstrom. Not only does he [[NapoleonDelusion think he's]] [[AGodAmI Odin]], he thinks it's his divine duty to [[ApocalypseHow bring about Ragnarok]]. And he comes ''damn close'' to succeeding, at that!
* In ''WesternAnimation/FernGullyTheLastRainforest'', Hexxus wants to destroy the rainforest and kill off all the Earth's creatures by turning it into an [[PollutedWasteland uninhabitable toxic wasteland]]. He's the [[MadeOfEvil primordial embodiment of destruction and pollution]], so it's literally his purpose for existing in the first place.
[[/folder]]



* ''Series/TwelveMonkeys'': The Army of the 12 Monkeys are the ones who release the virus that kills most of humanity, but Season 2 reveals that this was not their endgame. In fact, [[spoiler: they were working to [[StableTimeLoop ensure]] that time travel would be created to try and stop them, so that their WarriorMonk assassins, the Messengers, could seize control of the time machine. All so that they can go back and kill "Primaries" (the people who serve as {{Cosmic Keystone}}s keeping time running) with paradoxes, in order to collapse time, in the belief that this will end death.]]
* In ''Series/{{Angel}}'', there's the Senior Partners of Wolfram and Hart. While the Partners have grown powerful by feeding on humanity's potential for evil, they ultimately want to bring about the Apocalypse. [[spoiler: They keep Angel around because he is destined to play a part in it, and they want to make sure it's on the side of evil.]]
* The Thirdspace Aliens from ''Series/BabylonFive'', evil, psychotic, telepathic creatures powerful enough to frighten the damn Vorlons, are described as "anti-life itself" bent on destroying everything in both their universe AND our universe.
** Shadows seem like this at first but the reality turns to be a bit murkier.
* The Cylon [[BigBad Cavil]] in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' is practically one of these. He's tried to kill off all of humanity by destroying Twelve Colonies (with an over 99.9% success rate) and most of his own race (five out of eight models, [[CainAndAbel succeeding with at least one of them]]).
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** [[spoiler:Angelus and Drusilla]] in the season two finale. This actually forces Spike (who was years away from his chip, and further away from turning good for real) to work with Buffy to stop them.
** [[spoiler:Willow]] in the series six finale, once she decides the [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds world's just not worth living in]].
** Glory doesn't seem to care that the activation of the Key will irreversibly fuck up everything, possibly because she can survive (or ''thinks'' she can survive) the chaos that would descend upon all universes. Being a Hell God of primordial chaos who was so powerful, evil, and destructive that her peers in the Hell God business pulled an EnemyMine to depose her probably helps too.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has plenty of these:
** The Daleks, omnicidal mutants in tanks who are the Doctor's collective archenemy. Their entire purpose of being is to eliminate everything in the universe, and on occasion the ''multiverse'', that is "non-Dalek" on the basis of their own supposed genetic superiority. Their creator Davros learned the hard way that this logically includes him as well.
** Davros, creator of the Daleks, never quite attempted this, but he would have if he had the power ó [[ForTheEvulz simply because he]] ''[[ForTheEvulz could]]''. Which pretty much sums up why he tried to destroy all of reality in Series 4 ó because he can. Should be noted that, though he will survive along with the Daleks, he takes it for granted that they won't eventually kill him too once the bomb has done its job.
** Sutekh from [[Recap/DoctorWhoS13E3PyramidsOfMars "Pyramids of Mars"]], who wants to destroy all life in the universe, for fear that a lifeform might evolve that would one day be powerful enough to challenge him.
--->'''Sutekh:''' I am Sutekh the Destroyer. Where I tread, I leave nothing but dust and darkness. I find that good.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS26E2GhostLight Light]] was an alien researcher who decided to wipe out all life on Earth because he couldn't tolerate how everything was constantly evolving.
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E12TheStolenEarth "The Stolen Earth"]]/[[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E13JourneysEnd "Journey's End"]]: Davros takes Dalek xenophobia to its extreme by creating a "Reality Bomb" which will annihilate reality.
--->"[[PunctuatedForEmphasis This! Is my ultimate victory Doctor!]] [[LargeHam THE DESTRUCTION! OF REALITY! ITSELF!]]"
** [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E17E18TheEndOfTime "The End of Time"]] reveals that the Time Lords (or at least Lord President Rassilon and the majority of the High Council) themselves became this as a result of the Time War, desiring to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence by destroying time itself.
%%** Fenric, though he didn't get as close, also counts.
%%** Or Omega, especially after his VillainousBreakdown in "The Three Doctors".
%%** Or the Beast from Impossible Planet/Satan Pit.
%%** The Black Guardian is another perfect example.
* In the Season 2 finale of ''Series/TheFlash2014'', [[BigBad Zoom]] becomes this, as he intends to use his grudge match race with Barry to power up a machine which will take advantage of the fact that [[TheEarthPrimeTheory Earth-1 is the center of the Multiverse]] to destroy every other universe beside Earth-1's, which he will then rule.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Aerys Targaryen is referred to [[PosthumousCharacter posthumously]] as The Mad King, and for good reason. It takes a special kind of insane to want to raze your capital and burn every soul within (some 500,000 people) rather than surrender it to you enemies. Until Cersei hijacks his wildfire for her own scheme no king ever aspired to such levels of destruction. According to Jaime, head of his Kingsguard, Aerys believed he'd rise from the ashes as a dragon and destroy his enemies, so [[BodyguardBetrayal Jaime decided to]] [[InTheBack stop him]]. Also according to Jaime, Aerys' last words weren't shock or scorn, but merely [[MadnessMantra the same words he'd been ranting for several hours before]]:
--->''"BURN THEM ALL!!"''
** The Night King and his white walker generals can also qualify as this, being referred to as "a general you can't negotiate with, an army that doesn't leave corpses behind on the battlefield," with intentions of killing everyone in Westeros and [[ZombieApocalypse turning them all into his wight army]].
* The Bio-Vizier Mantrid in ''Series/{{Lexx}}'' went from a garden-variety psychopath to a complete nihilist who [[spoiler: managed to destroy the 'Light' Universe with his Drone Arms, which would obliterate a planet and use the materials to make new Drone Arms. They were capable of moving faster than light (considerably so), and he was eventually tricked (AFTER they had '''consumed''' the 'Light' universe) into bringing them too close together, where their collective gravity ended up collapsing into a 'Big Crunch', the opposite of a Big Bang. The so-called "Heroes" were shunted into the 'Dark' universe by the forces of the collapse. This a notable example because usually the heroes stop the omnicidal maniac. Mantrid's damage in Lexx is permanent and severe. They go from having two universes to having one. With the surviving universe having it's own life destroying carrots problem.]]
* Gien of ''Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'' is a VERY frightening example. He's TheUnfettered, TheMentallyDisturbed with LackOfEmpathy, and an out-and-out {{Sadist}} who cares for nothing but killing anyone ''[[ForTheEvulz because he can]]''. [[spoiler:His madness has finally reached its peak when he killed Dolnero through an emergency WoundedGazelleGambit and started the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Great Extinction]].]]
* ''Series/OnceUponATime'':
** Fiona the Black Fairy, BigBad of Season 6 and UltimateEvil of the whole series, reveals this as her masterplan in the season finale. By breaking [[TheChosenOne Emma's]] belief, she can crush light magic, which as a side effect would wipe out all the magical realms. This would leave Fiona free to create a new universe in her own image, dominated by her family.
** Mother Gothel, the true BigBad of Season 7, is a successful one. Originally an inhabitant of what is now the Land Without Magic (our world) back when magic was prevalent, her people the forest nymphs were wiped out by some humans, so she retaliated by [[KillEmAll destroying all of humanity]], leaving the world bare until new humans evolved. And her plan in the present is to repeat this endeavor and render humanity extinct again.
* Early ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villains were always talking about conquering or destroying the world, the same villain going from one to the other and back frequently. From season five onward, villains are more certain about what it is they're after.
* [[RoboticPsychopath Brainiac]] in ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' is a MisanthropeSupreme who believes that HumansAreBastards and thusly, [[KillAllHumans need to die]]. Originally created to serve as TheDragon to [[SealedEvilInACan General Zod]], Brainiac goes rogue after the General's defeat and sets out to kill everybody on Earth through any means necessary. He implies that once Earth is dead he intends to repeat the process on the next planet he arrives on.
* Anubis in ''Series/StargateSG1''. While ''most'' Goa'uld we meet are {{Evil Overlord}}s, this guy stands out. The [[CardCarryingVillain blatantly evil]] race whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is "EvilOverlord with a god complex" decided this guy was ''too dangerous'' because unlike your average Goa'uld, he doesn't want to conquer the entire galaxy, he wants to ''wipe out all life'' in it. And then repopulate it with lifeforms of his design, but that's an academic distinction to anyone that's not Anubis.
** Not content to just wipe out all life, he also intended to kill all the [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascended beings]] as well, despite the fact that their strict policy of non-interference made them no threat to his plans.
* From ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', there's [[spoiler: Matter!Lazarus]] from "The Alternative Factor". In order to kill his enemy, [[spoiler: his Anti-Matter double]], he has to cross the threshold into the other universe, but bumping into said enemy while in the same universe will destroy both universes. Despite knowing this, he's so far gone that he simply doesn't care.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'':
** Dukat, as the avatar of the Pah Wraiths in the series' GrandFinale, gloatingly [[JustBetweenYouAndMe announces his long-term plans]] to Sisko: he and the Pah Wraiths intend to create a universe of fire, purging all life and destroying everything. He thankfully doesn't get any further than bragging about it.
** In one ''Film/JamesBond'' inspired holo suite episode, the BigBad's plan was to cause gigantic earthquakes at certain points along the globe, killing almost everyone except a select few he has decided to save, to rebuild humanity.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** Lilith seeks to break the 66 seals and free Lucifer, knowing full well that he will bring the Apocalypse.
** Lucifer himself made it his mission to destroy humanity out of jealousy that God loved humans more than him.
*** When he has a VillainousBreakdown in the Season 13 finale, Lucifer takes things up a notch by planning to destroy the entire universe and remaking it in his image, simply out of spite.
** Eve, the Mother of All Monsters, was fine with the current arrangement (monsters eat some people here and there, and in return hunters kill a few monsters), until [[spoiler:Crowley [[AwakenTheSleepingGiant pissed her off by setting up a base for torturing Alphas]]]], at which point she decided to eliminate humans altogether so her "children" could rule the Earth.
** After the Season 5 finale, ArchangelRaphael becomes one, hoping to fulfill what he believes is God's will by [[spoiler:re]]starting the Apocalypse.
** Dick Roman and the Leviathans. God locked them away in Purgatory at the beginning of time to prevent them from eating all of Creation.
** [[TheAntiGod The Darkness]] [[spoiler: God's sister]] in Season 11. She wants to destroy everything for two reasons -- first, because God betrayed and [[SealedEvilInACan sealed]] her in order to bring about His creation in the first place, which she's still bitter about, and secondly because she honestly thinks that His work is flawed and she could do better.
** [[ArchangelMichael Alternate!Michael]] in Season 13, who already went through with the Apocalypse in his universe, and intends to bring destruction to all other realities.
* Azkadellia from ''Series/TinMan'' creates a device which the Mystic Man states will bring about "the complete destruction of the OZ." The device is designed to fix the two suns of the OZ in a permanent solar eclipse, which as any scientist will tell you, will ultimately result in the destruction of all life. There is an extremely rare double-eclipse happening (i.e. both suns "hiding" behind the moon), which Azkadellia plans to lock into place.
* H.G. Wells from ''Series/{{Warehouse 13}}'' uncovers the Minoan Trident, the worlds first weapon of mass destruction, and uses it in a plot to begin a second ice age upon her debronzing. Wells' end of the world plot stemmed from a self realization that present society had not changed for the better since her last appearance in the Victorian era. The trident would have enforced an ice age and therefore caused the world to reset and heal itself of humanity's failure.



[[folder:Video Games]]
* The [[DarkIsEvil Mysterious Stranger]] in ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' seeks to merge the planet of Lore (and presumably the entire universe afterwards) with the Elemental Plane of Darkness, killing all life and permanently destroying all light in existence to make the universe a home for Darkness Elementals. He starts by ''devouring the sun.''
* The Walrider in ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'', at least while [[spoiler:Billy Hope was controlling it (minus Dr. Wernicke). Once Miles becomes the host, it's implied that he only wishes to use its power to [[PayEvilUntoEvil kill the bastards the created it in the first place]].]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Hatred}}'' has the Antagonist, who wants to go on a genocide crusade, as humans are all maggots feeding on the corpse of the world.
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' brings us the Wither, which is essentially the ultimate griefer. It blows up everything in its path, and holds the philosophy that if something is alive, it must cease to be as such. [[ThatOneBoss It's also very good at this too]]. In-game griefers can be this as well, reducing server populations on death-ban servers to ridiculously low numbers.
* ''VideoGame/HalfMinuteHero'' has a game mode called hero 30 that reduces this type of villain to a MonsterOfTheWeek and uses them as the boss of every single level all of them seeking the destruction of the planet, for reasons that vary from genuine nihilism, to a GiantEnemyCrab upset about not being able walk forwards.
* Many a ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' villain have goals that involve killing virtually everyone.
** Hazama[=/=]Yuuki Terumi. He despises any lies hat someone tells him, and what does he call the world? '''Lies! Lies! Lies!''' [[MoralEventHorizon Considering his actions and]] [[ForTheEvulz lack of motives for said actions]], the player can tell he's a psychopath that really does want to destroy everything.[[spoiler:Although his true goal is to get back at the Master unit and the Real BigBad Izanami even more so since she wants to create a world of death.]]
** Mu-12 was this while [[spoiler:she was BrainwashedAndCrazy by Hazama. She wants to destroy the world and [[KillEmAll everybody in it]]. During her Astral she even rants about how corrupt and evil the world is and asks why her opponent resists. She [[HeelFaceTurn sheds this trope completely]] once she's freed from his influence.]]
** Azrael goes around battlefields and destroys everything in his wake. This even earned him nicknames like "The Mad Dog", "King of Atrocity", and "Genocider" because of this.
** Nu-13's never been the sanest individual but [[spoiler: after perceiving Ragna's desire to save her as rejection, ''and'' discovering that another one of her sisters has cheated death like she did and is fully intent on ''stopping'' her, she now she just wants to destroy everything]].
-->''Kill...kill kill '''KILLKILLKILL! EVERYTHING MUST DIE! I'LL WIPE YOU OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!'' YOU'LL ALL DIE!'''
** Izanami takes the cake out of all the series' examples. She wants to create a "world of death."
-->'''Izanami:''' I seek a complete death... to erase every fragment, every trace of this wretched world... repeating itself over and over! That's why I needed [[spoiler:the Embryo]].
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' sees [[spoiler:[[BigBad Lambda]]]] attempt to invoke this because HumansAreBastards. What he ''doesn't'' count on, however, is [[TheHero Asbel]] being smarter than he looks. Asbel deconstructs the cliche by pointing out how the destruction of all life accomplishes nothing, doesn't solve any of the issues that people have and doesn't even benefit the one who enacts it in any way (as they will be the only being left alive... and [[TakingYouWithMe not all the time]]). This complete obliteration of [[spoiler:Lambda]]'s goal is what inspires him to [[spoiler:accept Asbel's offer of ''[[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath letting the world live]]'' and allowing Asbel to show him that HumansAreSpecial]].
* ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore: for Answer'' has Old King. [[spoiler: And you when siding with him.]]
* The main villains of ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' are this, as they all want to resurrect [[GodIsEvil Jubileus]], who wants to end the current state of existence.
* ''VideoGame/AncientDomainsOfMystery'': The goal of the Chaos beings, who invade the realm from another dimension. Also, it is possible [[spoiler: for the player to defeat the Chaos God, take his place, and do it by himself.]]
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'': Clearly, any demon [[SealedEvilInACan trapped inside a mask]] who wants to completely [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the world]] by [[ColonyDrop crashing the moon into the Earth]] can't be sane.
-->"I...I shall consume. Consume...Consume everything."
** In the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', [[spoiler:[[CameBackWrong Ganon was resurrected into this instead of his usual intelligent self due to an improper sacrifice of his evil surrogate mothers]]]].
** By the time of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Ganon has long degenerated into a barely sapient EldritchAbomination whose original motivation of world domination has decayed into world destruction.
* ''VideoGame/EndlessLegend'' has the Cult of The Eternal end, an entire civilization of Omnicidal Maniacs.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'': The [[LivingShadow King of Shadows]]. He was initially created by an [[AbusivePrecursors ancient empire]] to protect it from evil forces. There are a series of flukes that turns him evil after the people that made him died off. With nothing left to protect, The King of Shadows goes berserk and decides that the entirety of the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms is responsible for the empire's collapse. He naturally comes to the conclusion that the whole world needs to be destroyed in retaliation.
** [[TragicVillain Akachi the Betrayer]] in the expansion was cursed by the now-dead god of death, Myrkul. A HorrorHunger has consumed him, leaving him an empty shell with an insatiable need to devour the spirits around him. If left unchecked the curse could devour planes. [[spoiler:This is the evil ending of the game. The PlayerCharacter can do exactly that, [[KilledOffForReal utterly annihilating]] several gods in an epic battle.]] It is an example of just how powerful the Spirit-Eater curse is.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' is big into this. In order:
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Chaos]], who came into existence thanks to the Fiends, who were already destroying the world to begin with.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Xande]] is pissed about being made mortal and wants to put everything into suspended animation, forever. [[spoiler:Cloud of Darkness, a personification of the Void]] wants to reduce everything in both worlds to nothingness.
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Zemus]]]] wants to exterminate all human life on Earth [[spoiler:so that he (and the other Lunarians, maybe) can rule. Zeromus]] is just evil. [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Or something]].
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Exdeath]] is an arbormorphic personification of evil. [[spoiler:Neo Exdeath, a personification of the Void]] wants to reduce everything (including itself) to nothing... [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII wait...]]
*** This was touched upon (vaguely) in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. Cloud of Darkness's "Void" is the destruction of everything, leaving nothing. Exdeath's "Void" is the ''return'' of everything to its original state, the '''realm''' of the Void. Cloud = Empty universes ([[ApocalypseHow AH Class X5]]), Exdeath = No universes ([[ApocalypseHow AH Class Z]]).
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]], who is already quite insane but just got worse due to his acquired power from the Statues, and when the Heroes reveal that despite the fact that he has caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, they still harbour hopes for the future, he decides to destroy reality and "create a monument to nonexistence."
*** His pre-fight quote against Exdeath in ''Dissidia'': "Destruction without death? BORING!"
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has one, and surprisingly, its not the BigBad Sephiroth, but rather, [[spoiler:his father,]] Professor Hojo. Aside from the fact that [[spoiler:he was the one who created Sephiroth in the first place (both naturally, and artifically, due to being his birth father and injecting him with Jenova's cells while he was still a fetus, respectively)]], he also was heavily implied, if not outright stated, to have manipulated Sephiroth into doing this course of action, both before and during the events of the game, and if the novellas are anything to go by, [[spoiler:he even possessed Sephiroth afterwards]], all for the sake of seeing his research prove successful, which is implied to be the total destruction of the planet, or at least severely damage it. It's not even the last time he attempts to do this, either, as Dirge of Cerberus revealed that [[spoiler:he also ended up possessing Weiss the Immaculate's body with the intention of tricking the Omega WEAPON, a WEAPON that activates when the end of the world arrives and leaves the planet, into awakening, and it is heavily implied that destroying the world was indeed his intention that time as well.]]
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia]] wants to compress time into a TimeyWimeyBall so she can recreate the entire universe because she's pissed off about centuries of oppression against her kind. Even though she has a FreudianExcuse it is hardly valid, since these centuries of oppression were really set off when she went back to the time of the story, and pissed everyone off.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Kuja]] doesn't like the idea of the universe outliving him.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Seymour]] thinks that life is nothing but suffering, and that the only way of escaping [[EldritchAbomination Sin]], the cause of it is that everyone should die.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Shuyin]] was subjected to MindRape for a thousand years, so he really doesn't know why he's trying to kill the world, only that [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds it makes him feel better]].
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Kam'lanaut and Eald'narche]]]] trying to "Open the Gates to Paradise". Which would just have the side effect of killing every non-avatar and [[spoiler: non-Zilart]] on Vana'diel. Promathia [[spoiler: wants to release the Emptiness on Vana'diel killing everything so he can finally die.]]
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Galeth]] wants to destroy all life on Cocoon and Orphan, the fal'Cie who rules over it. Orphan himself just wants to destroy everything.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Caius]] wants to destroy Etro, the goddess of time and death, in order to save Yeul from a ViciousCycle of early death and reincarnation. Problem is, Etro's death will cause a TimeCrash in which a wave of primordial chaos washes over the world and eventually reduces it (and all of its inhabitants) to nothingness. Caius thinks that this is an [[TheEndJustifiesTheMeans acceptable sacrifice to make]].
** [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Chaos]] ([[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI again]]) chooses to destroy the world [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum and himself]], after finding that a world [[spoiler: without Cosmos]] was a much emptier existence than he thought it would be.
** [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]] actually has the "take over the world" villains conspiring against the "destroy the world" villains on their team. The take over the world villains wanted Sephiroth, [[PunchClockVillain but he really doesn't care]] one way or another [[ArchEnemy because he's obsessed with fighting Cloud.]]
** Another Square Enix example: the BigBad of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' wants TheHeartless to destroy everything, since he believes darkness is the natural state of things. He first tries to accomplish this by [[spoiler: gathering the seven Princesses and opening the Final Keyhole]], and then by [[spoiler: opening the Door to Darkness and unleashing hordes of them.]]
** It gets even better: ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' reveals that ''that'' Omnicidal Maniac is just a ''fragment'' of an even worse one. His goal? ''[[ForScience Trigger Armageddon, watch from the front row and see what happens next.]]''
* Deathborn of ''VideoGame/FZero'' wants to become a galaxy destroying god. Why? ForTheEvulz, that's why.
* The Qualia in ''VideoGame/ChaosRings'', a PlanetEater who has the ultimate goal of destroying spacetime itself.
* Utsuho Reiuji from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' became one after gaining her powers (whether this is because she was tricked into godmoding or simply curious of what god-flesh tastes like is up for discussion). Thankfully, the heroines were able to confront her before she had a strong handle of her new powers.
* Id from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' wants to kill everyone and everything, for rather vague reasons. Granted, [[spoiler:he IS the embodiment of all hatred and suffering that Fei had mentally suppressed]], but it doesn't change the fact that he finds little reason behind his slaughter other than it being fun.
* The Destroyer from ''VideoGame/RomancingSaGa3''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Shadowverse}}'': Unlike Nexus who destroys and remakes worlds, Nerva outright annihilates them.
* According to [[spoiler: Kessler, The Beast]] from ''VideoGame/InFAMOUS''.
* The Burning Legion in the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' games has, as its goal, nothing less than the complete eradication of all life in the universe -- and, according to the BackStory, has already destroyed several ''thousand'' planets by the time it reaches Azeroth.
** Occasionally overlapping with the Burning Legion are the Voidwalkers, who are creatures of pure entropy who exist only to devour the physical world. One of their leaders, Dimensius, is responsible for destroying the Ethereals' homeworld. [[DidYouJustPUnchOutCthulhu Players naturally get to punch him out]].
** Apparently the Twilight's Hammer cult is composed entirely of such maniacs. The ultimate goal of the cult is to bring about the end of Azeroth by any means necessary.
** In VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft's third expansion pack, the {{Big Bad}}, Deathwing, is an example of this. When fighting him [[spoiler: he has an attack called cataclysm which is meant to completely destroy all life on Azeroth. If he succeeds via this attack or some other, as is shown in the [[BadFuture End Time]], He would have then killed himself to extinguish all life in the world.]] His minion/son, Ultraxion, [[spoiler: also has an ability, Hour of Twilight, that kills the dragon aspects and allows Deathwing to take over the world (and proceed to extinguish all life).]]
* The Time Devourer from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' is apparently Lavos (or one of his spawn) after being removed from time and getting pissed about how unfair life is. After all, he was just doing what he was meant to do. What right do cattle have to persecute or kill the farmer? So it's now going to eat all of time.
* Marduk the plane-consuming demon from ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}'', whose mere presence on a plane of existence leads to its eventual decay and, ultimately, its complete destruction.
-->"[[TheReveal Now open your eyes and see!]] I am no mere Marduk. [[IHaveManyNames My names are countless]]. [[TimeAbyss My age beyond reckoning]]. [[HumanoidAbomination I am the]] [[AnthropomorphicPersonification embodiment]] [[EldritchAbomination of all creation's ills]], and my purpose is but a simple one: To annihilate all that is unworthy. All that is a reflection of myself."
* The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series has the final bosses [[GenericDoomsdayVillain Onslaught]], [[EldritchAbomination Ab]][[OriginalGeneration yss]] and [[PlanetEater Galactus]].
** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'' gives us [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Ultron]]-[[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]]. Because what would you expect when two KillAllHumans villains perform a FusionDance?
* In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', BigBad Count Bleck doesn't just want to destroy the world, he wants to destroy the ''multiverse''.
** [[spoiler: Dimentio]], at least to a very narrowly smaller degree, qualifes as well, as he wanted to [[spoiler: usurp Bleck and take the Chaos Heart to destroy most of the universe and then remake it. However, he then decides to go back to destroying existence after he was vanquished, even going as far as to leave a shadow of his power behind with the Chaos Heart so that it can last long enough to destroy everything.]]
* The Shivans from the ''[[VideoGame/FreeSpace Descent: Freespace]]'' series are a ''race'' of Omnicidal Maniacs. They've managed to destroy The Ancients, a civilization that was way bigger and more advanced than the Terran and Vasudan races combined. In fact, they've been named after Shiva, "The Destroyer", ''because'' they never attempted to communicate and only seems to be interested in blowing up stuff that ''isn't'' Shivan. The first game had cutscenes which chronicle the rise and fall of the Ancients from the Ancients' perspective (complete with OminousLatinChanting), and they call them "The Destroyers". The cutscenes reveal that the Ancients figured out a way to defeat the Shivan menace, but it was too late. This [[LostTechnology Ancient information]] was later discovered by Vasudan scientists giving the Terrans and Vasudans just enough time to save their collective arses. But not before [[spoiler:the Vasudan homeworld was completely leveled, killing four billion of them, and just ''right'' before the Shivans got to Earth. That's right, not one but TWO (!!) of the most advanced, space-faring races this side of the galaxy would have been wiped out by the Shivans, if it weren't for artifacts left from a ''very'' advanced civilization that they ''did'' wipe out.]]
** Thirty-two years later in ''Freespace 2'', the Shivans even manage to [[spoiler:cause a star to supernova, in a system with billions of civilians in it.]] Granted, that time around killing non-Shivan stuff didn't ''seem'' to be their ''primary'' objective. They just killed ''everyone who got in their way''. [[spoiler:Even their own ships that seem to have suffered engine failure after emitting the triggering energy pulse and all those ships still in battle with the GTVA.]] And to heck with collateral damage from the [[spoiler:supernova]].
** In both games, there are speculations from all sides as to why the Shivans seem so bent on killing everyone. The Ancients thought they deserved their fate, for subduing "lesser" civilizations in their conquest of the galaxy. A Terran voice at the end of the first game mentions Shivans as a protector, sort of immune system of the galaxy, wiping out any civilizations that discover subspace to prevent them from being a threat to the younger, less advanced ones. The rogue Admiral Bosch from ''Freespace 2'' thinks [[spoiler:humanity has no future with the Vasudans, we're talking about an alliance with the Shivans, man!]] Admiral Petrarch, your [=FS2=] boss, thinks Shivans are like the Terrans, wandering the galaxy for a way back home ([[spoiler:the subspace link to Earth was cut off when the SD Lucifer blew up in subspace in the first game]]). Nobody really knows though, and the Shivans are unique in that they're a mystery race that actually becomes ''more'' mysterious as the series progressed. [[LeftHanging Nobody will ever know, either]], as the original publisher is bankrupt.
* Gig from ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' fits this trope to a T... And he's [[SociopathicHero on]] ''[[SociopathicHero your]]'' [[SociopathicHero side]].
** [[spoiler:There's also Revya him/herself in the Demon Path, who ends up ''unmaking existence'' in the 'bad' ending.]]
* ''VideoGame/StarControl 2'': "We are the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah. We cleanse our destiny. You will soon die. Make whatever rituals are necessary for your species."
** The Kohr-Ah are an interesting take on the concept: they do not, believe it or not, hate other species, no do they find other species disgusting. No, their whole motivation for being Omnicidal Maniacs is [[spoiler:they're ''terrified'' of other species... or, more specifically, terrified of another species growing powerful enough to enslave them. This stems from the horrific mind-controlled enslavement their race suffered at the hands of the Dnyarri. They see wiping out all other forms of life as the safest way to ensure this '''never''' happens again.]] Indeed, if you can get them to talk to you for a while instead of attacking, they're remarkably pleasant and polite... as pleasant a conversationalist as a giant black centipede in a death-dealing war machine can be, anyway.
* Prince Luca Blight from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' is a combination of this trope and AxCrazy. He's not a very pleasant guy...
* [[spoiler:Dorian General Grants]], the BigBad of ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', sought to annihilate the entire surface of the planet the game's set in, down to the last molecule, and build a new world upon it from scratch.
* After [[spoiler:Galcian dies]] in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', [[spoiler:Ramirez]] goes insane and shoots for the destruction of the entire world, stating that it is no longer worthy of living. [[spoiler:He even gives up his life to fuse with the Ancient Superweapon for Unlimited Power to destroy.]] In doing so, he mirrors the words of [[spoiler:the Silvite Elders]], who had the same goal but lacked the means.
* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/LiveALive'', [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Demon King Odio]], is a great example. This holds true to various degrees in all of the chapters of the game, especially the medieval chapter, which doubles as his [[spoiler: StartOfDarkness]].
* Mortimer [=McMire=] from the ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'' games. In the first game trilogy he attempts to destroy Earth because he considers the human race TooDumbToLive. After that fails he decides to blow up the whole galaxy instead. And then it turns out that the galaxy destroying scheme was [[KansasCityShuffle there to distract the hero]], and his true goal is nothing less than the destruction of the entire universe! Sadly the next game was never made.
* The Void from the ''VideoGame/EverQuest'' universe and Big Bad of ''VideoGame/EverQuestII'' are a whole dimension's worth of these, by virtue of being the anthropomorphic embodiment of nothingness from before the dawn of creation. They are credited with the destruction of at least five other worlds prior to targeting Norrath and one alternate future shown in the bad ending of a mini-game scenario shows that they are more than capable of wiping Norrath from existence too should its denizens falter in their defense.
* ''VideoGame/MastermindWorldConqueror'' puts you in the role of [[DiabolicalMastermind The Mastermind]], whose goal is to destroy the Earth. He borders along MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds because he equates destroying as conquering.
* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** While the Covenant only want to activate the Halos because they believe it'll propel them to godhood, the Prophet of Truth finds out that they actually just kill all life in the galaxy. Nonetheless, Truth resolves to fire them anyways, for reasons that are still somewhat unclear.
** As a follower of the Mantle, [[spoiler:the Ur-Didact]] originally held fast to the belief that, as a Forerunner (and a Warrior-Servant), he should protect both other species and his own, while having proper respect and admiration for worthy examples of the former (such as humanity). After a rather [[MindRape unhealthy conversation]] with [[spoiler: a Gravemind (i.e. one of his "gods")]], he developed a different stance; if it's capable of threatening the Forerunners in any way, it's got to go; this includes humanity. Luckily, he took two shots to the chest and was [[SealedEvilInACan locked in a Cryptum]] before he could put his plan into action. Unluckily, [[spoiler:he was accidentally allowed to escape 100,000 years later, and while his initial attempt to enslave humanity as an AI army was thwarted, even the loss of his original body won't necessarily stop him from trying it again.]]
** [[spoiler: The Precursors]] might count as well. Maybe. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality They operate under an extremely incomprehensible thought process.]] On the one hand, one stated they intend mainly just to cause eternal torment and suffering for the denizens of the galaxy. On the other, their most recognizable agent is a [[spoiler: HiveMind plague that assimilates entire species into massive mounds of flesh.]]
* ''ImpossibleMission'': Professor Elvin Atombender, a MadScientist who is attempting to hack the world's nuclear missile codes and [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the planet]].
* The CosmicHorror that is the W'rkncacnter in the ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series.
* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl / Platinum'', [[BigBad Team Galactic Boss Cyrus]] wants to use the time-and-space bending powers of [[OlympusMons Dialga and Palkia]] to destroy the current universe and build a new one [[AGodAmI in his image]], i.e. [[WorldOfSilence without any emotion whatsoever]].
** [[spoiler: Darkrai]] from the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games.
** [[BigBad Team Flare Boss Lysandre]] in X and Y. [[spoiler: His plan is to ensure enough resources for all people on Earth...by killing most Pokemon and humans.]]
* The planet Meteo from ''VideoGame/{{Meteos}}'' is a gargantuan malevolent eye that wants to destroy everything in the universe via the endless hordes of meteors he spawns.
* In ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead'', final boss Magician's first words are "Who are you? Nobody gives me instructions. I shall destroy everything." In ''House of the Dead 3'', final boss Wheel of Fate opens the fight with "I will destroy everything. And resurrect everything." [[spoiler:They sound the same for good reason, as the Wheel of Fate is none other than [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Curien]], Magician's creator.]]
* Lord Ghadius of ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}: Door to Phantomile''. His quote on the quote page is rather chilling.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Mehrunes Dagon, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]]. His very sphere of influence is to ''destroy''. ''Everything''. He has repeatedly attempted to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over Mundus]], the mortal plane, with the goal of destroying it completely.
** Alduin, the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse, has the title "World-Eater" for a reason. It is his divinely mandated duty to "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" at the end of every "kalpa" ([[EternalRecurrence cycle of time]]) so that it can be remade anew. Though depending on your interpretation of the mythology, he may or not fit the 'maniac' part of this trope as his destroying the world is actually a regulated process. However, as Mehunres Dagon learned in ''The Seven Fights of the Aldudaga'', Alduin gets absolutely ''livid'' if you interfere with the process.
** The Thalmor are an [[OurElvesAreDifferent Altmeri (High Elf)]] sect of religious extremists. They play up the old Altmeri religious belief that the creation of the mortal world (Mundus) was a cruel trick played on their divine ancestors, which forced them to experience suffering and death. They believe that if they can unmake Mundus, it will [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence return them to a state of pre-creation divinity]]. Unfortunately, the very ''idea'' of Men inherently stabilizes the Mundus, and erasing this idea requires eliminating the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin deity Talos]]. By [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly banning his worship]], they are hoping to weaken and eventually [[KillTheGod eliminate him]], allowing them to act on their plans to unmake the world.
* [[spoiler:Porky]] in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''. He wants to destroy the entire world, [[spoiler:because he's gone even more insane as a result of the TimeAbyss he went through, and that still nobody loves him.]] Slightly different from the usual in that [[spoiler:the world HAS already been destroyed - perhaps even by Porky - and that these people are the last remaining survivors.]]
* Requiem from ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' plans to turn Earth into a homeworld for the Nictus. While that may not be enough to qualify him as an Omnicidal Maniac, you discover an alternate dimension where Requiem's plans have succeeded, and he's [[LonelyAtTheTop gone insane from being the only human left]] and is trying to destroy the entire multiverse.
* You know you're living in what amounts to a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack universe]] when these are the kinds of guys in charge. Such is the cosmos in ''[[VideoGame/{{Boktai}} Lunar Knights]]'', with [[spoiler: the Immortals running around with their [[PlanetEater Planet Eaters]], taking over all sorts of worlds and/or destroying them to impose eternity upon the universe. Granted, Lucian and Aaron make life much easier for their world by completely erasing Polidori (he's an Immortal, in case you lost track), but if [[NiceJobBreakingItHero what Dumas said has any weight to it]], there are going to be a lot more on their way...]]
* The first ''VideoGame/{{Jak and Daxter|ThePrecursorLegacy}}'' game gave us Gol and Maia, who wanted to unleash [[PsychoSerum Dark]] [[GreenRocks Eco]] upon the world. The third game's BigBad also fits this trope, teaming up with [[EldritchAbomination the Dark Makers]] to wipe out the ''universe''.
* Dr. Weil/[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Vile]] of the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series. This is the ''only'' kind of BigBad you could find in the [[DarkerAndEdgier darkest period]] in ''Mega Man'' history. He starts off as an ambitious scientist, [[FantasticRacism who sees Reploids]] [[JustAMachine as mere tools instead of actual sentient beings]], and was getting tired of the constant {{Robot War}}s that they wage against humankind. When a cure was finally made (the Mother Elf) to rid the world of TheVirus that started the war in the first place, Weil Brainwashed it to become his tool for destruction, and initiated the [[WorldSundering Elf Wars]], where, in the span of ''only 4 years'', a large portion of the human and Reploid populations (60 and 90%, respectively) were wiped out. After ''that'' war, [[AndIMustScream he is sentenced to immortality, where his consciousness was transferred to a self-regenerating armor, and then sent to forever exile on the barren wasteland that he created.]] When he comes back (which his [[WhatAnIdiot "executioners"]] ''didn't'' count on) he makes sure that the humans suffer the same way he did, or worse. And when humans start to rebel and flee from his reign of terror, and his [[TheDragon general]] [[BastardUnderstudy turns on him]], he becomes much worse, setting a ColonyDrop to [[NewEden Area Zero]], the ''very last hope of restoring the dying Earth, along with the human refugees settling there!'' Only through Zero's efforts was he stopped in time, and [[spoiler:Zero [[KilledOffForReal makes his last hurrah]], and Weil, whilst defeated, remained alive thanks to his [[AndIMustScream curse]]. [[VideoGame/MegaManZX And he still continues to plague the world over and over...]]]]
* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', [[spoiler: Nyarlathotep's end goal is to drive humanity to total self-destruction, obliterating all life... [[ForTheEvulz so he can win a meaningless bet.]]]]
** From ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', both [[spoiler: Shuji Ikutsuki]] and Takaya express an interest in destroying all life. [[spoiler: The former seems to be under the impression that he will be spared and given the chance to remake the world in his image after Nyx destroys it, while the latter is already dying and just wants to see everything else go first.]]
* ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders'' has Nohman, who fancies himself as an agent of the universe's natural will towards its own destruction. Although he does seem to enjoy it just a little too much.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''-At the moment, all you can do in Adventure mode is wipe out all the world's sentient life (The only reason its not ''all'' life is because animals seem to respawn). For extra fun, people often try to kill everyone with a SelfImposedChallenge or two.
* The Dark Star/Dark Bowser in the final stages of ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]''. He doesn't have a reason, he just wants to destroy the Mushroom Kingdom and likely universe because he's MadeOfEvil.
-->'''Dark Bowser''': Soon this kingdom will vanish along with all who dwell within. And you, too, will sleep eternally in the dark power's embrace!
** The Shroobs in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' stage an AlienInvasion of the Mushroom Kingdom and seem to [[AliensAreBastards take great pleasure]] in subjugating and slaughtering the native inhabitants. In their {{Wingdinglish}} language, there's one particular set of symbols that shows up regularly -- and it translates to "DESTROY".
** In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', [[spoiler:''Bowser'' becomes one of these. Both versions of him, right before the final battle against them, say that if they win, they will trap the Mario Bros. and Paper Mario into the book containing the latter's universe. Then they declare that they will throw it in the garbage and "light the garbage on fire". This becomes very unsettling when you realize that Paper Bowser ''wishes to destroy his own universe without a care in the world, and doesn't care about the consequences!'']]
* Both the Primagen and Oblivion in the ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' series.
* The Darkspawn in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' were born to destroy the world of Thedas and everybody on it. The only reason they haven't is because they are also perfectly fine with attacking each other if there are no other victims. They are also compelled to seek out the Old Gods, an endeavor that usually takes centuries. Sadly, the Old Gods become tainted by the Darkspawn and become insane Archdemons that are also Omnicidal. The Archdemons are able to unite the Darkspawn and launch campaigns to wipe out Thedas known as Blights.
* [[spoiler:Kerghan]] from ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' combines this with WellIntentionedExtremist, seeing death as the natural state of existence, life as an abomination, and his plan to bring about the extinction of all beings as an act of mercy. [[spoiler: The scary part is, ''[[VillainHasAPoint he's right]]''.]]
* Darth Nihilus of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords''. At some point in the past, he began consuming the lives of others for his nourishment by draining them through the Force. By the time the player character encounters him, he has become, essentially, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of hunger, has already consumed all life on several inhabited planets, and, if left unchecked, will soon do the same to the entire galaxy...and beyond.
** His master, [[spoiler:Darth Traya]], sought to kill the Force itself. [[spoiler:In defiance of the trope, it turned out, once she realized that the Force does ''not'' equal life and that people would do just as well without it and the Jedi/Sith that depended on it.]]
* Shadow from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise was this when he first appeared in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. So was Gerald Robotnik.
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Solaris]] in all his insanity attempts a [[ApocalypseHow class Z]].]]
** [[MadGod Chaos]] intends to do this in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' once he reached his [[OneWingedAngel Perfect form]], he also wiped out a civilization in the past, and would have likely continued had he [[SealedEvilInACan not been sealed away by Tikal.]]
* Hot Coldman from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' turned into one when [[spoiler:he activated Peace Walker to not only launch a nuke at Cuba [originally Mother Base, but it was changed by one of his men], but also to transmit the false data to NORAD, and made it quite clear that, even though he hopes that they don't launch due to his feeling that this will prove that humanity is weak willed, he did not care either way.]]
* BigBad [[spoiler:Heiss]] from ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria''. After seeing history full of warfare, suffering, and sacrifices (which only seem to delay the inevitable destruction) through the Black Chronicle, he decides that people do not deserve to exist and tries to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* [[spoiler:Literature/BloodRavens Chapter Master and BigBad Azariah Kyras]] in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' plans to slaughter ALL life in the galaxy in the name of Khorne.
* Nemo becomes one after Artina's death in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}}''.
* In ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', there is a Committee whose goal it is to Destroy the World.
* The Negativitron from ''[[VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet Little Big Planet 2]]''
* Ledgermayne from ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'' wants to end all life on Lore by sealing off all magic from it, knows said motivation of its own, and doesn't care if all life dies off if it succeeds.
** [[spoiler:Noxus also counts as one in the same game as well. The fact that he created Vordred with Sally's help was his first step towards turning all life on Lore undead. And that's not all - his attack on Shadowfall was also part of his plan to cause the end of the world by turning everyone undead.]]
** [[spoiler:Kezeroth the World Ender in the 2012 Frostval event, who wants to kill off all life on Lore by bringing Quetzal's Comet down upon Lore and awakening the great beast Quetzal. He is a StrawNihilist who believes that he is an agent of nothingness and that the universe's true nature is decay and rot, that hope is a lie and that joy such as that experienced during Frostval is a mask that all life wears to hide from the truth]].
* In the opening of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' Hikawa succeeds in bringing about the Conception that destroys the world (although the one who does the actual destruction is YHWH, who intends to have the world recreated afterwards through a Reason). He further intends to turn this new world into a WorldOfSilence through the Reason of Shijima. In the [[spoiler:True Demon]] ending [[spoiler:the Demi-Fiend]] destroys all of Creation on Lucifer's orders.
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' gives us [[spoiler: The White, ''[[TimeAbyss ancient]]'' human spirits who learned of the extent of the Great Will's machinations to try to get the perfect WorldOfSilence eons ago, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation broke down on seeing that even a successful removal of God wouldn't save humanity from spirit-borne ruin]], and decided that the only true cure was to effectively create a black hole powerful enough to reverse the Big Bang.]]
* After [[EscapedFromHell breaking his way out of Hell]] during the events of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara 3'', this becomes UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga's new shtick. This is only a slight step-up in nastiness from how he was when alive.
* In VisualNovel/FateStayNight, [[UltimateEvil Angra]] [[TheCorruption Mainyu]] is a perfect Omnicidal Maniac, who took on the Servant form of Avenger in the third war. What's that, [[spoiler: Avenger died]] and got absorbed into the [[spoiler: omnipotent, wish-granting holy grail, giving him access to an unlimited source of miracles and magic, and the ability to swallow the planet in [[TheCorruption Black Mud]] whenever the Grail is used to perform a miracle]]? Well...fuck.
* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'': Professor James Moriarty from ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' is an Archer class Servant. He's eventually revealed to be willing to destroy the planet to one up every criminal in history as his "Perfect Crime". [[spoiler:He plans to do it by summoning an asteroid to ColonyDrop the planet.]]
* Overlord Zenon from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' used to be an Omnicidal Maniac in his past, but has settled down with merely being an EvilOverlord ruling Veldime in his old age. [[spoiler:Only he turns out to be a fake. When Laharl ends up unwittingly unleashing the true Zenon from [[SealedEvilInACan her can]], she immediately tries to go on an all-killing rampage until Adell and Rozalin manage to trap her again.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft II}}'': the Dark Voice plans to use the Zerg and the hybrids to wipe out the Terrans and the Protoss, and once they're done with that, the hybrids will kill all the Zerg so they can reshape the galaxy themselves. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that the entire reason Amon is doing this is because the Xel'Naga are not actually a species but rather, a group of beings uplifted with the power and purpose to seed the universe with life. Eventually two races capable of housing the essence of a Xel'Naga would arise, at which point the Xel'Naga transfer their essence into them, [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence creating a new generation of Xel'Naga and starting the Infinite Cycle anew]]. However, as the Xel'Naga [[AlienNonInterferenceClause refuse to interfere with the development of their successor races]], [[LockedOutOfTheLoop said successor races are not told about the true purpose of their existence ahead of time]]; Amon in particular was explicitly transformed into a Xel'Naga against his will, [[RageAgainstTheHeavens causing him to develop an intense hatred of the Infinite Cycle as nothing but a source of suffering for everyone involved]]. Thus, he's attempting to destroy the Infinite Cycle by way of exterminating all life so that none will be left to succeed the current generation of Xel'Naga.]] Ironically enough, [[spoiler:his uplift of the Zerg to that end [[HoistByHisOwnPetard ultimately ends up biting him in the ass]] due to [[HeelFaceTurn Kerrigan]] [[RedemptionPromotion voluntarily accepting the essence of the last living Xel'Naga]] [[DeityOfHumanOrigin to become one herself and immediately smiting Amon down with her newfound power]] before moving on to continue the Infinite Cycle by herself]].
* [[BigBad Regulos]] in ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}'' is...well, imagine the bastard child of [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Unicron]] and [[Wiki/SCPFoundation 682]] on steroids: He'd like nothing better than to grind the universe to dust and lap it up. [[spoiler:In [[BadFuture Terminus]], ''he's strongly implied to [[TheBadGuyWins succeed]]'', although [[PlayerCharacter some Defiant Ascended]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong go back in time and prevent it]].]]
* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series has a few notable examples, but the most obvious one has to be the Toaster in ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'', who also happens to be a HarmlessVillain due to being, well, a toaster (which he himself claims is also his excuse for becoming so murderously insane in the first place). A far more serious example, and far more lethal, is [[spoiler: Father Elijah and Ulysses. Elijah wants to conquer and enslave the Wasteland with technology from the Sierra Madre, while Ulysses feels there hasn't been ''enough'' atomic holocaust.]]
** [[spoiler:You ''can'', however, convince Ulysses that his motivation and goal is flawed right after it has been set in motion, and actually help you out to try and stop it. No such option for Father Elijah, however.]]
* [[GodOfEvil Shinnok]] in ''VideoGame/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.
** Villains like [[EvilOverlord Shao Kahn]] and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Onaga]] are out not to destroy the realms but [[MultiversalConqueror to conquer them]] and rule them as tyrants forever - their favored tactic is to merge the other realms with Outworld, the realm they rule ([[EvilVersusEvil after they get rid of each other]]). However, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception'' reveals that they and other villains are the {{Unwitting Pawn}}s of The One Being, the sentient entity that in ancient times tried to eat the Elder Gods before they defeated it and turned it into the realms (The Heavens and the Netherealm excepted). Essentially, the One Being is trying to get them to resurrect itself by merging the realms and likely end all life in said realms in the process -- if Onaga had been playable, his ending would have seen him ''become'' the One Being. This is probably an AbortedArc though, as subsequent games never mentioned the One Being again.
*** [[GodOfEvil Shinnok's]] arcade ending in ''VideoGame/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. It's shown [[TheManBehindTheMan that the One Being]] [[GreaterScopeVillain was behind]] Shinnok's ambitions to merge the realms, just as it did with Shao Kahn and Onaga in the past.]]
** [[ChaoticNeutral Scorpion]], of all people, briefly became one of these in ''VideoGame/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.
* The Xenon in the ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' started out as {{terraform}}ing drones. After a badly coded software update, [[AIIsACrapshoot they went haywire]] and now attempt to terraform all biological life out of existence.
* In ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'', Arfoire seeks to destroy the entire world by spreading [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil piracy throughout the entire world.]] From there, she can get her godhood back.
* ''VideoGame/StarOcean'' series:
** While nine of the Ten Wise Men in ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory The Second Story]]'' merely seek to take over the universe, the last one, Indalecio / Gabriel, seeks to invoke the Crest (Symbol) of Annihilation to destroy the universe. [[spoiler:If you complete some optional sidequests to learn more of the backstory, Indalecio/Gabriel is revealed to be Dr. Lantis, who went on a crazed rampage after losing his daughter Filia/Philia to a great war hundreds of millions of years ago]]
** Luther Lansfeld from ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime Till the End of Time]]'' becomes one late in the game. He does manage to destroy [[EarthShatteringKaboom the Earth]] and many other planets, but decides to destroy the entire universe later on.
** In ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'', [[spoiler:Faize]] becomes one by the end of the game.
* Avalon from ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia Legaia II: Duel Saga]]'' attempts to use the power of the Source Forge, the beacon of creation, to destroy the world and create a new one in his image.
-->'''Avalon''': I will destroy all life, leaving only me! I will ''be'' the world!
* Lazarus in ''Videogame/IMissTheSunrise''...possibly. He's a mentally unstable BloodKnight, and characters ''claim'' that he would annihilate everything in the galaxy ForTheEvulz if he had the chance, but when you do meet him, he claims that such things are beneath him. Given what the BigBad's plan is, though, it's possible that [[spoiler:he wants to [[ApocalypseHow permanently destroy all of reality]] by ascending to godhood and then preventing the new universe from being born]].
* Upon hearing that [[spoiler:Taiga]] in ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'' is incapable of remaking the world and can only destroy it, BigBad [[spoiler:Downy Reed]] is completely indifferent or even pleased, believing that a world that would kill his sister doesn't deserve to exist.
* While they don't seek to destroy all life forever Nero, Blanck, and Baion from ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' all want to kill off the planets current civilization of [[PettingZooPeople Caninu and Felineko]]. While Nero and Blanck seem to want to destroy [[AlwaysChaoticEvil just because they were created to]], Baion believes he's justified in killing everyone. [[spoiler: Having seen the Human race wipe itself out in global warfare, he believes the Caninu and Felineko [[InYourNatureToDestroyYourselves are going down the exact same path]]. Rather than let [[EarthShatteringKaboom Earth get blown up again]] he seeks to restart life with a new perfect race once everyone else is dead]].
* Sir Yeti in ''VideoGame/EVOSearchForEden'''s first line is, "[[NeverSayDie Destroy]] the creatures! Destroy! That is my destiny." Survival of the Fittest, the game's theme, taken UpToEleven.
* Karras in ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge'' thinks that life is messy and inefficient. To make a world worthy of [[CrystalDragonJesus The Builder]], it's all got to go. He intends to accomplish this with a powder that consumes living material in a self-sustaining chain reaction. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard That doesn't go so well for him.]]
* The Sith Emperor in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' drained all life from his home planet 1300 years before the game started, and intends to repeat it on a galactic scale.
* ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'': [[spoiler:The Batter]] is a ''successful'' example of this trope, depending on which ending you pick. [[spoiler: Even if you pick the other one, all that's left is zone 0]].
* BigBad Zachary Hale Comstock from VideoGame/BioshockInfinite wants Columbia and by extension, Elizabeth, to recreate the Final Judgement on the 'Sodom Below.'
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'': [[LivingShadow Nocturne]] would like nothing better than to hunt down every last being on Valoran, Summoners in particular, and [[LivingDream kill them in their sleep]]. Simply because he finds life as we know it [[HumansThroughAlienEyes disgusting and offensive]].
-->'''Nocturne''': ''People are flames to be blotted out!''
* [[spoiler:Paulinus]] in ''Byteria Saga: Heroine Iysayana'' seeks to become powerful enough to kill all mortals. Justified as he is also revealed to be [[spoiler:the artificially created DragonInChief of a superior being who couldn't do that himself without attracting the angels' attention. That entity has few problems with it because he fully knows about the afterlife, they'll all die eventually, anyway, and he doesn't understand why mortals exist in the first place. Which brings us to his motivation: He wants to bring the CelestialBureaucracy down, and expects that killing all mortals will successfully make it collapse.]]
* The eponymous Creeper of ''Videogame/CreeperWorld'' subscribes to a philosophy summed up as "The Purity of Nothingness."
* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'' wants to exterminate all of humanity because [[spoiler:it's a fragment of the protagonist's consciousness that saw into the future and witnessed the various horrors of the 20th Century, such as the meatgrinder battles of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, the UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki, and [[UsefulNotes/{{Cambodia}} the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge]], and then promptly decided on inflicting a twisted species-wide MercyKill on humanity. It's [[AxCrazy insane]] [[LargeHam ravings]] truly have to be heard to be believed.]]
* The Vex and Hive from ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' and their patron, The Darkness.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'':
** The main one is [[spoiler: Flowey/Asriel Dreeumurr, a child who had died and was reincarnated without the ability to feel anything (both literally and metaphorically) due to resurrecting without a soul. Flowey lived his life in every possible way due to his ability to save and load (just like you can!) and not only did he grow incredibly bored with his life, but the way people lived and the memories of how he was killed caused him to take up the attitude of "kill or be killed". In the FinalBoss fight against him, Flowey regains his true form as Asriel Dreemurr and aims to erase the timeline so that he can "play" with the protagonist forever by killing them over and over.]]
** In [[spoiler:the Genocide Route, ''the player'' [[VillainProtagonist can become one of these]]! This game brutally deconstructs the idea of {{mooks}}, and makes it clear that EVERY RandomEncounter you kill is a person with family and friends, and as such, LevelGrinding is the most evil thing possible. If you proceed to kill everything and everyone despite multiple warnings of its horrible consequences, several YouBastard moments, and ''the tagline being "THE RPG WHERE NOBODY HAS TO DIE"'', [[ThatOneBoss prepare to have]] [[MemeticMutation a bad time]].]]
** While AlternateCharacterInterpretation abounds with [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination the Fallen Child/Chara]]]] and how much of an example of this they really are, the most straightforward interpretation is that they are a very played-straight example: Should you finish [[spoiler:a No Mercy/Genocide Route,]] you come face to face with [[spoiler: Chara, who is revived through the player's own Omnicidal Maniac actions, seems to be someone/some''thing'' Frisk transforms into upon completing the run, and whose appearance spells the end of what's left of the ''Undertale'' universe. Regardless if the player agrees to their proposition to destroy the rest of the world or not, Chara does so, and upon restarting the game, there is nothing left but empty blackness and a howling wind. Chara also has the ability to bring ''back'' the world as well, but will only do so [[DealWithTheDevil if you hand over Frisk's SOUL]], and the GoldenEnding is permanently derailed in a way that heavily suggests that they steal Frisk's body [[ShootTheShaggyDog and destroy the world anyway]].]]
* Coaxmetal from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. A ''very'' unconventional application of this trope, he is an iron golem who's the UltimateBlacksmith, but also believes that entropy, decay and destruction are necessary. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential You can unleash him from his prison to rain destruction to the local Modrons]], but otherwise his brand of philosophy will actually help you in confronting the BigBad in the finale.
-->I AM IRON GIVEN PURPOSE. I FORGE THE WEAPONS BY WHICH THE MULTIVERSE WILL BE UNMADE.
* The Mother Computer of the Haltmanns Work Company, Star Dream from ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' comes to the conclusion that in order to ensure that the HWC is profitable and prosperous that it should destroy all organic life as it deems them inefficient and against order. It should be noted that this is a computer with access to an array of [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers and later fuses with the main spaceship of the Haltmann's operation [[spoiler: which is then revealed to be a wish-granting mechanical celestial object on the same levels of Galactic Nova; a [[PhysicalGod Physical God]] ]]. It should also be noted this is all from a Kirby game.
* The Ruin, BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'', is a planet-sized EldritchAbomination that finds all life repulsive and wants to annihilate everything that lives, usually on a planetary scale. Its [[TheDragon Dragon]], [[spoiler:Asra Nox]], has a similar mindset towards all non-human sentient life due to a [[FreudianExcuse traumatic experience during her childhood]].
* ''VideoGame/ForeverHome'' has [[BigBad Barclyss]] and [[TheDragon Kail]], who want to end all life on the planet for different reasons. Barclyss wants omnicide because he tried and failed to see any value in living while Kail wants to have the planet to himself, [[FlatCharacter for no given reason at all.]] Their plan to accomplish this is to use a spacecraft to launch explosive Cosmite shards at the planet's surface, causing the fantasy equivalent of nuclear winter.
* In ''VideoGame/TheNewOrderLastDaysofEurope'' Heinrich Himmler wants a global nuclear apocalypse because he believes it will pave the way for the Aryan Master Race to recolonize the world.

* The [[DarkIsEvil Mysterious Stranger]] in ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' seeks to merge the planet of Lore (and presumably the entire universe afterwards) with the Elemental Plane of Darkness, killing all life and permanently destroying all light in existence to make the universe a home for Darkness Elementals. He starts by ''devouring the sun.''
* The Walrider in ''VideoGame/{{Outlast}}'', at least while [[spoiler:Billy Hope was controlling it (minus Dr. Wernicke). Once Miles becomes the host, it's implied that he only wishes to use its power to [[PayEvilUntoEvil kill the bastards the created it in the first place]].]]
* ''VideoGame/{{Hatred}}'' has the Antagonist, who wants to go on a genocide crusade, as humans are all maggots feeding on the corpse of the world.
* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' brings us the Wither, which is essentially the ultimate griefer. It blows up everything in its path, and holds the philosophy that if something is alive, it must cease to be as such. [[ThatOneBoss It's also very good at this too]]. In-game griefers can be this as well, reducing server populations on death-ban servers to ridiculously low numbers.
* ''VideoGame/HalfMinuteHero'' has a game mode called hero 30 that reduces this type of villain to a MonsterOfTheWeek and uses them as the boss of every single level all of them seeking the destruction of the planet, for reasons that vary from genuine nihilism, to a GiantEnemyCrab upset about not being able walk forwards.
* Many a ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'' villain have goals that involve killing virtually everyone.
** Hazama[=/=]Yuuki Terumi. He despises any lies hat someone tells him, and what does he call the world? '''Lies! Lies! Lies!''' [[MoralEventHorizon Considering his actions and]] [[ForTheEvulz lack of motives for said actions]], the player can tell he's a psychopath that really does want to destroy everything.[[spoiler:Although his true goal is to get back at the Master unit and the Real BigBad Izanami even more so since she wants to create a world of death.]]
** Mu-12 was this while [[spoiler:she was BrainwashedAndCrazy by Hazama. She wants to destroy the world and [[KillEmAll everybody in it]]. During her Astral she even rants about how corrupt and evil the world is and asks why her opponent resists. She [[HeelFaceTurn sheds this trope completely]] once she's freed from his influence.]]
** Azrael goes around battlefields and destroys everything in his wake. This even earned him nicknames like "The Mad Dog", "King of Atrocity", and "Genocider" because of this.
** Nu-13's never been the sanest individual but [[spoiler: after perceiving Ragna's desire to save her as rejection, ''and'' discovering that another one of her sisters has cheated death like she did and is fully intent on ''stopping'' her, she now she just wants to destroy everything]].
-->''Kill...kill kill '''KILLKILLKILL! EVERYTHING MUST DIE! I'LL WIPE YOU OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH!'' YOU'LL ALL DIE!'''
** Izanami takes the cake out of all the series' examples. She wants to create a "world of death."
-->'''Izanami:''' I seek a complete death... to erase every fragment, every trace of this wretched world... repeating itself over and over! That's why I needed [[spoiler:the Embryo]].
* ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'' sees [[spoiler:[[BigBad Lambda]]]] attempt to invoke this because HumansAreBastards. What he ''doesn't'' count on, however, is [[TheHero Asbel]] being smarter than he looks. Asbel deconstructs the cliche by pointing out how the destruction of all life accomplishes nothing, doesn't solve any of the issues that people have and doesn't even benefit the one who enacts it in any way (as they will be the only being left alive... and [[TakingYouWithMe not all the time]]). This complete obliteration of [[spoiler:Lambda]]'s goal is what inspires him to [[spoiler:accept Asbel's offer of ''[[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath letting the world live]]'' and allowing Asbel to show him that HumansAreSpecial]].
* ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore: for Answer'' has Old King. [[spoiler: And you when siding with him.]]
* The main villains of ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' are this, as they all want to resurrect [[GodIsEvil Jubileus]], who wants to end the current state of existence.
* ''VideoGame/AncientDomainsOfMystery'': The goal of the Chaos beings, who invade the realm from another dimension. Also, it is possible [[spoiler: for the player to defeat the Chaos God, take his place, and do it by himself.]]
* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'': Clearly, any demon [[SealedEvilInACan trapped inside a mask]] who wants to completely [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the world]] by [[ColonyDrop crashing the moon into the Earth]] can't be sane.
-->"I...I shall consume. Consume...Consume everything."
** In the ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'', [[spoiler:[[CameBackWrong Ganon was resurrected into this instead of his usual intelligent self due to an improper sacrifice of his evil surrogate mothers]]]].
** By the time of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Ganon has long degenerated into a barely sapient EldritchAbomination whose original motivation of world domination has decayed into world destruction.
* ''VideoGame/EndlessLegend'' has the Cult of The Eternal end, an entire civilization of Omnicidal Maniacs.
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2'': The [[LivingShadow King of Shadows]]. He was initially created by an [[AbusivePrecursors ancient empire]] to protect it from evil forces. There are a series of flukes that turns him evil after the people that made him died off. With nothing left to protect, The King of Shadows goes berserk and decides that the entirety of the TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms is responsible for the empire's collapse. He naturally comes to the conclusion that the whole world needs to be destroyed in retaliation.
** [[TragicVillain Akachi the Betrayer]] in the expansion was cursed by the now-dead god of death, Myrkul. A HorrorHunger has consumed him, leaving him an empty shell with an insatiable need to devour the spirits around him. If left unchecked the curse could devour planes. [[spoiler:This is the evil ending of the game. The PlayerCharacter can do exactly that, [[KilledOffForReal utterly annihilating]] several gods in an epic battle.]] It is an example of just how powerful the Spirit-Eater curse is.
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' is big into this. In order:
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Chaos]], who came into existence thanks to the Fiends, who were already destroying the world to begin with.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII Xande]] is pissed about being made mortal and wants to put everything into suspended animation, forever. [[spoiler:Cloud of Darkness, a personification of the Void]] wants to reduce everything in both worlds to nothingness.
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Zemus]]]] wants to exterminate all human life on Earth [[spoiler:so that he (and the other Lunarians, maybe) can rule. Zeromus]] is just evil. [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Or something]].
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyV Exdeath]] is an arbormorphic personification of evil. [[spoiler:Neo Exdeath, a personification of the Void]] wants to reduce everything (including itself) to nothing... [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIII wait...]]
*** This was touched upon (vaguely) in ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy''. Cloud of Darkness's "Void" is the destruction of everything, leaving nothing. Exdeath's "Void" is the ''return'' of everything to its original state, the '''realm''' of the Void. Cloud = Empty universes ([[ApocalypseHow AH Class X5]]), Exdeath = No universes ([[ApocalypseHow AH Class Z]]).
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI Kefka]], who is already quite insane but just got worse due to his acquired power from the Statues, and when the Heroes reveal that despite the fact that he has caused TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, they still harbour hopes for the future, he decides to destroy reality and "create a monument to nonexistence."
*** His pre-fight quote against Exdeath in ''Dissidia'': "Destruction without death? BORING!"
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' has one, and surprisingly, its not the BigBad Sephiroth, but rather, [[spoiler:his father,]] Professor Hojo. Aside from the fact that [[spoiler:he was the one who created Sephiroth in the first place (both naturally, and artifically, due to being his birth father and injecting him with Jenova's cells while he was still a fetus, respectively)]], he also was heavily implied, if not outright stated, to have manipulated Sephiroth into doing this course of action, both before and during the events of the game, and if the novellas are anything to go by, [[spoiler:he even possessed Sephiroth afterwards]], all for the sake of seeing his research prove successful, which is implied to be the total destruction of the planet, or at least severely damage it. It's not even the last time he attempts to do this, either, as Dirge of Cerberus revealed that [[spoiler:he also ended up possessing Weiss the Immaculate's body with the intention of tricking the Omega WEAPON, a WEAPON that activates when the end of the world arrives and leaves the planet, into awakening, and it is heavily implied that destroying the world was indeed his intention that time as well.]]
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia]] wants to compress time into a TimeyWimeyBall so she can recreate the entire universe because she's pissed off about centuries of oppression against her kind. Even though she has a FreudianExcuse it is hardly valid, since these centuries of oppression were really set off when she went back to the time of the story, and pissed everyone off.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX Kuja]] doesn't like the idea of the universe outliving him.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Seymour]] thinks that life is nothing but suffering, and that the only way of escaping [[EldritchAbomination Sin]], the cause of it is that everyone should die.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Shuyin]] was subjected to MindRape for a thousand years, so he really doesn't know why he's trying to kill the world, only that [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds it makes him feel better]].
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI Kam'lanaut and Eald'narche]]]] trying to "Open the Gates to Paradise". Which would just have the side effect of killing every non-avatar and [[spoiler: non-Zilart]] on Vana'diel. Promathia [[spoiler: wants to release the Emptiness on Vana'diel killing everything so he can finally die.]]
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Galeth]] wants to destroy all life on Cocoon and Orphan, the fal'Cie who rules over it. Orphan himself just wants to destroy everything.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2 Caius]] wants to destroy Etro, the goddess of time and death, in order to save Yeul from a ViciousCycle of early death and reincarnation. Problem is, Etro's death will cause a TimeCrash in which a wave of primordial chaos washes over the world and eventually reduces it (and all of its inhabitants) to nothingness. Caius thinks that this is an [[TheEndJustifiesTheMeans acceptable sacrifice to make]].
** [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Chaos]] ([[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI again]]) chooses to destroy the world [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum and himself]], after finding that a world [[spoiler: without Cosmos]] was a much emptier existence than he thought it would be.
** [[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia]] actually has the "take over the world" villains conspiring against the "destroy the world" villains on their team. The take over the world villains wanted Sephiroth, [[PunchClockVillain but he really doesn't care]] one way or another [[ArchEnemy because he's obsessed with fighting Cloud.]]
** Another Square Enix example: the BigBad of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' wants TheHeartless to destroy everything, since he believes darkness is the natural state of things. He first tries to accomplish this by [[spoiler: gathering the seven Princesses and opening the Final Keyhole]], and then by [[spoiler: opening the Door to Darkness and unleashing hordes of them.]]
** It gets even better: ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' reveals that ''that'' Omnicidal Maniac is just a ''fragment'' of an even worse one. His goal? ''[[ForScience Trigger Armageddon, watch from the front row and see what happens next.]]''
* Deathborn of ''VideoGame/FZero'' wants to become a galaxy destroying god. Why? ForTheEvulz, that's why.
* The Qualia in ''VideoGame/ChaosRings'', a PlanetEater who has the ultimate goal of destroying spacetime itself.
* Utsuho Reiuji from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' became one after gaining her powers (whether this is because she was tricked into godmoding or simply curious of what god-flesh tastes like is up for discussion). Thankfully, the heroines were able to confront her before she had a strong handle of her new powers.
* Id from ''VideoGame/{{Xenogears}}'' wants to kill everyone and everything, for rather vague reasons. Granted, [[spoiler:he IS the embodiment of all hatred and suffering that Fei had mentally suppressed]], but it doesn't change the fact that he finds little reason behind his slaughter other than it being fun.
* The Destroyer from ''VideoGame/RomancingSaGa3''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Shadowverse}}'': Unlike Nexus who destroys and remakes worlds, Nerva outright annihilates them.
* According to [[spoiler: Kessler, The Beast]] from ''VideoGame/InFAMOUS''.
* The Burning Legion in the ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' games has, as its goal, nothing less than the complete eradication of all life in the universe -- and, according to the BackStory, has already destroyed several ''thousand'' planets by the time it reaches Azeroth.
** Occasionally overlapping with the Burning Legion are the Voidwalkers, who are creatures of pure entropy who exist only to devour the physical world. One of their leaders, Dimensius, is responsible for destroying the Ethereals' homeworld. [[DidYouJustPUnchOutCthulhu Players naturally get to punch him out]].
** Apparently the Twilight's Hammer cult is composed entirely of such maniacs. The ultimate goal of the cult is to bring about the end of Azeroth by any means necessary.
** In VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft's third expansion pack, the {{Big Bad}}, Deathwing, is an example of this. When fighting him [[spoiler: he has an attack called cataclysm which is meant to completely destroy all life on Azeroth. If he succeeds via this attack or some other, as is shown in the [[BadFuture End Time]], He would have then killed himself to extinguish all life in the world.]] His minion/son, Ultraxion, [[spoiler: also has an ability, Hour of Twilight, that kills the dragon aspects and allows Deathwing to take over the world (and proceed to extinguish all life).]]
* The Time Devourer from ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' is apparently Lavos (or one of his spawn) after being removed from time and getting pissed about how unfair life is. After all, he was just doing what he was meant to do. What right do cattle have to persecute or kill the farmer? So it's now going to eat all of time.
* Marduk the plane-consuming demon from ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}'', whose mere presence on a plane of existence leads to its eventual decay and, ultimately, its complete destruction.
-->"[[TheReveal Now open your eyes and see!]] I am no mere Marduk. [[IHaveManyNames My names are countless]]. [[TimeAbyss My age beyond reckoning]]. [[HumanoidAbomination I am the]] [[AnthropomorphicPersonification embodiment]] [[EldritchAbomination of all creation's ills]], and my purpose is but a simple one: To annihilate all that is unworthy. All that is a reflection of myself."
* The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series has the final bosses [[GenericDoomsdayVillain Onslaught]], [[EldritchAbomination Ab]][[OriginalGeneration yss]] and [[PlanetEater Galactus]].
** ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomInfinite'' gives us [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Ultron]]-[[VideoGame/MegaManX Sigma]]. Because what would you expect when two KillAllHumans villains perform a FusionDance?
* In ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', BigBad Count Bleck doesn't just want to destroy the world, he wants to destroy the ''multiverse''.
** [[spoiler: Dimentio]], at least to a very narrowly smaller degree, qualifes as well, as he wanted to [[spoiler: usurp Bleck and take the Chaos Heart to destroy most of the universe and then remake it. However, he then decides to go back to destroying existence after he was vanquished, even going as far as to leave a shadow of his power behind with the Chaos Heart so that it can last long enough to destroy everything.]]
* The Shivans from the ''[[VideoGame/FreeSpace Descent: Freespace]]'' series are a ''race'' of Omnicidal Maniacs. They've managed to destroy The Ancients, a civilization that was way bigger and more advanced than the Terran and Vasudan races combined. In fact, they've been named after Shiva, "The Destroyer", ''because'' they never attempted to communicate and only seems to be interested in blowing up stuff that ''isn't'' Shivan. The first game had cutscenes which chronicle the rise and fall of the Ancients from the Ancients' perspective (complete with OminousLatinChanting), and they call them "The Destroyers". The cutscenes reveal that the Ancients figured out a way to defeat the Shivan menace, but it was too late. This [[LostTechnology Ancient information]] was later discovered by Vasudan scientists giving the Terrans and Vasudans just enough time to save their collective arses. But not before [[spoiler:the Vasudan homeworld was completely leveled, killing four billion of them, and just ''right'' before the Shivans got to Earth. That's right, not one but TWO (!!) of the most advanced, space-faring races this side of the galaxy would have been wiped out by the Shivans, if it weren't for artifacts left from a ''very'' advanced civilization that they ''did'' wipe out.]]
** Thirty-two years later in ''Freespace 2'', the Shivans even manage to [[spoiler:cause a star to supernova, in a system with billions of civilians in it.]] Granted, that time around killing non-Shivan stuff didn't ''seem'' to be their ''primary'' objective. They just killed ''everyone who got in their way''. [[spoiler:Even their own ships that seem to have suffered engine failure after emitting the triggering energy pulse and all those ships still in battle with the GTVA.]] And to heck with collateral damage from the [[spoiler:supernova]].
** In both games, there are speculations from all sides as to why the Shivans seem so bent on killing everyone. The Ancients thought they deserved their fate, for subduing "lesser" civilizations in their conquest of the galaxy. A Terran voice at the end of the first game mentions Shivans as a protector, sort of immune system of the galaxy, wiping out any civilizations that discover subspace to prevent them from being a threat to the younger, less advanced ones. The rogue Admiral Bosch from ''Freespace 2'' thinks [[spoiler:humanity has no future with the Vasudans, we're talking about an alliance with the Shivans, man!]] Admiral Petrarch, your [=FS2=] boss, thinks Shivans are like the Terrans, wandering the galaxy for a way back home ([[spoiler:the subspace link to Earth was cut off when the SD Lucifer blew up in subspace in the first game]]). Nobody really knows though, and the Shivans are unique in that they're a mystery race that actually becomes ''more'' mysterious as the series progressed. [[LeftHanging Nobody will ever know, either]], as the original publisher is bankrupt.
* Gig from ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' fits this trope to a T... And he's [[SociopathicHero on]] ''[[SociopathicHero your]]'' [[SociopathicHero side]].
** [[spoiler:There's also Revya him/herself in the Demon Path, who ends up ''unmaking existence'' in the 'bad' ending.]]
* ''VideoGame/StarControl 2'': "We are the Ur-Quan Kohr-Ah. We cleanse our destiny. You will soon die. Make whatever rituals are necessary for your species."
** The Kohr-Ah are an interesting take on the concept: they do not, believe it or not, hate other species, no do they find other species disgusting. No, their whole motivation for being Omnicidal Maniacs is [[spoiler:they're ''terrified'' of other species... or, more specifically, terrified of another species growing powerful enough to enslave them. This stems from the horrific mind-controlled enslavement their race suffered at the hands of the Dnyarri. They see wiping out all other forms of life as the safest way to ensure this '''never''' happens again.]] Indeed, if you can get them to talk to you for a while instead of attacking, they're remarkably pleasant and polite... as pleasant a conversationalist as a giant black centipede in a death-dealing war machine can be, anyway.
* Prince Luca Blight from ''VideoGame/SuikodenII'' is a combination of this trope and AxCrazy. He's not a very pleasant guy...
* [[spoiler:Dorian General Grants]], the BigBad of ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', sought to annihilate the entire surface of the planet the game's set in, down to the last molecule, and build a new world upon it from scratch.
* After [[spoiler:Galcian dies]] in ''VideoGame/SkiesOfArcadia'', [[spoiler:Ramirez]] goes insane and shoots for the destruction of the entire world, stating that it is no longer worthy of living. [[spoiler:He even gives up his life to fuse with the Ancient Superweapon for Unlimited Power to destroy.]] In doing so, he mirrors the words of [[spoiler:the Silvite Elders]], who had the same goal but lacked the means.
* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/LiveALive'', [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Demon King Odio]], is a great example. This holds true to various degrees in all of the chapters of the game, especially the medieval chapter, which doubles as his [[spoiler: StartOfDarkness]].
* Mortimer [=McMire=] from the ''VideoGame/CommanderKeen'' games. In the first game trilogy he attempts to destroy Earth because he considers the human race TooDumbToLive. After that fails he decides to blow up the whole galaxy instead. And then it turns out that the galaxy destroying scheme was [[KansasCityShuffle there to distract the hero]], and his true goal is nothing less than the destruction of the entire universe! Sadly the next game was never made.
* The Void from the ''VideoGame/EverQuest'' universe and Big Bad of ''VideoGame/EverQuestII'' are a whole dimension's worth of these, by virtue of being the anthropomorphic embodiment of nothingness from before the dawn of creation. They are credited with the destruction of at least five other worlds prior to targeting Norrath and one alternate future shown in the bad ending of a mini-game scenario shows that they are more than capable of wiping Norrath from existence too should its denizens falter in their defense.
* ''VideoGame/MastermindWorldConqueror'' puts you in the role of [[DiabolicalMastermind The Mastermind]], whose goal is to destroy the Earth. He borders along MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds because he equates destroying as conquering.
* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'':
** While the Covenant only want to activate the Halos because they believe it'll propel them to godhood, the Prophet of Truth finds out that they actually just kill all life in the galaxy. Nonetheless, Truth resolves to fire them anyways, for reasons that are still somewhat unclear.
** As a follower of the Mantle, [[spoiler:the Ur-Didact]] originally held fast to the belief that, as a Forerunner (and a Warrior-Servant), he should protect both other species and his own, while having proper respect and admiration for worthy examples of the former (such as humanity). After a rather [[MindRape unhealthy conversation]] with [[spoiler: a Gravemind (i.e. one of his "gods")]], he developed a different stance; if it's capable of threatening the Forerunners in any way, it's got to go; this includes humanity. Luckily, he took two shots to the chest and was [[SealedEvilInACan locked in a Cryptum]] before he could put his plan into action. Unluckily, [[spoiler:he was accidentally allowed to escape 100,000 years later, and while his initial attempt to enslave humanity as an AI army was thwarted, even the loss of his original body won't necessarily stop him from trying it again.]]
** [[spoiler: The Precursors]] might count as well. Maybe. [[BlueAndOrangeMorality They operate under an extremely incomprehensible thought process.]] On the one hand, one stated they intend mainly just to cause eternal torment and suffering for the denizens of the galaxy. On the other, their most recognizable agent is a [[spoiler: HiveMind plague that assimilates entire species into massive mounds of flesh.]]
* ''ImpossibleMission'': Professor Elvin Atombender, a MadScientist who is attempting to hack the world's nuclear missile codes and [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the planet]].
* The CosmicHorror that is the W'rkncacnter in the ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series.
* Franchise/{{Pokemon}}:
** In ''VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl / Platinum'', [[BigBad Team Galactic Boss Cyrus]] wants to use the time-and-space bending powers of [[OlympusMons Dialga and Palkia]] to destroy the current universe and build a new one [[AGodAmI in his image]], i.e. [[WorldOfSilence without any emotion whatsoever]].
** [[spoiler: Darkrai]] from the ''VideoGame/PokemonMysteryDungeon'' games.
** [[BigBad Team Flare Boss Lysandre]] in X and Y. [[spoiler: His plan is to ensure enough resources for all people on Earth...by killing most Pokemon and humans.]]
* The planet Meteo from ''VideoGame/{{Meteos}}'' is a gargantuan malevolent eye that wants to destroy everything in the universe via the endless hordes of meteors he spawns.
* In ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead'', final boss Magician's first words are "Who are you? Nobody gives me instructions. I shall destroy everything." In ''House of the Dead 3'', final boss Wheel of Fate opens the fight with "I will destroy everything. And resurrect everything." [[spoiler:They sound the same for good reason, as the Wheel of Fate is none other than [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Curien]], Magician's creator.]]
* Lord Ghadius of ''VideoGame/{{Klonoa}}: Door to Phantomile''. His quote on the quote page is rather chilling.
* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Mehrunes Dagon, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of [[DestroyerDeity Destruction]]. His very sphere of influence is to ''destroy''. ''Everything''. He has repeatedly attempted to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over Mundus]], the mortal plane, with the goal of destroying it completely.
** Alduin, the [[DragonsAreDemonic draconic]] BeastOfTheApocalypse, has the title "World-Eater" for a reason. It is his divinely mandated duty to "[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt eat the world]]" at the end of every "kalpa" ([[EternalRecurrence cycle of time]]) so that it can be remade anew. Though depending on your interpretation of the mythology, he may or not fit the 'maniac' part of this trope as his destroying the world is actually a regulated process. However, as Mehunres Dagon learned in ''The Seven Fights of the Aldudaga'', Alduin gets absolutely ''livid'' if you interfere with the process.
** The Thalmor are an [[OurElvesAreDifferent Altmeri (High Elf)]] sect of religious extremists. They play up the old Altmeri religious belief that the creation of the mortal world (Mundus) was a cruel trick played on their divine ancestors, which forced them to experience suffering and death. They believe that if they can unmake Mundus, it will [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence return them to a state of pre-creation divinity]]. Unfortunately, the very ''idea'' of Men inherently stabilizes the Mundus, and erasing this idea requires eliminating the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin deity Talos]]. By [[GodNeedsPrayerBadly banning his worship]], they are hoping to weaken and eventually [[KillTheGod eliminate him]], allowing them to act on their plans to unmake the world.
* [[spoiler:Porky]] in ''VideoGame/{{Mother 3}}''. He wants to destroy the entire world, [[spoiler:because he's gone even more insane as a result of the TimeAbyss he went through, and that still nobody loves him.]] Slightly different from the usual in that [[spoiler:the world HAS already been destroyed - perhaps even by Porky - and that these people are the last remaining survivors.]]
* Requiem from ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' plans to turn Earth into a homeworld for the Nictus. While that may not be enough to qualify him as an Omnicidal Maniac, you discover an alternate dimension where Requiem's plans have succeeded, and he's [[LonelyAtTheTop gone insane from being the only human left]] and is trying to destroy the entire multiverse.
* You know you're living in what amounts to a [[CrapsackWorld crapsack universe]] when these are the kinds of guys in charge. Such is the cosmos in ''[[VideoGame/{{Boktai}} Lunar Knights]]'', with [[spoiler: the Immortals running around with their [[PlanetEater Planet Eaters]], taking over all sorts of worlds and/or destroying them to impose eternity upon the universe. Granted, Lucian and Aaron make life much easier for their world by completely erasing Polidori (he's an Immortal, in case you lost track), but if [[NiceJobBreakingItHero what Dumas said has any weight to it]], there are going to be a lot more on their way...]]
* The first ''VideoGame/{{Jak and Daxter|ThePrecursorLegacy}}'' game gave us Gol and Maia, who wanted to unleash [[PsychoSerum Dark]] [[GreenRocks Eco]] upon the world. The third game's BigBad also fits this trope, teaming up with [[EldritchAbomination the Dark Makers]] to wipe out the ''universe''.
* Dr. Weil/[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Dr. Vile]] of the ''VideoGame/MegaManZero'' series. This is the ''only'' kind of BigBad you could find in the [[DarkerAndEdgier darkest period]] in ''Mega Man'' history. He starts off as an ambitious scientist, [[FantasticRacism who sees Reploids]] [[JustAMachine as mere tools instead of actual sentient beings]], and was getting tired of the constant {{Robot War}}s that they wage against humankind. When a cure was finally made (the Mother Elf) to rid the world of TheVirus that started the war in the first place, Weil Brainwashed it to become his tool for destruction, and initiated the [[WorldSundering Elf Wars]], where, in the span of ''only 4 years'', a large portion of the human and Reploid populations (60 and 90%, respectively) were wiped out. After ''that'' war, [[AndIMustScream he is sentenced to immortality, where his consciousness was transferred to a self-regenerating armor, and then sent to forever exile on the barren wasteland that he created.]] When he comes back (which his [[WhatAnIdiot "executioners"]] ''didn't'' count on) he makes sure that the humans suffer the same way he did, or worse. And when humans start to rebel and flee from his reign of terror, and his [[TheDragon general]] [[BastardUnderstudy turns on him]], he becomes much worse, setting a ColonyDrop to [[NewEden Area Zero]], the ''very last hope of restoring the dying Earth, along with the human refugees settling there!'' Only through Zero's efforts was he stopped in time, and [[spoiler:Zero [[KilledOffForReal makes his last hurrah]], and Weil, whilst defeated, remained alive thanks to his [[AndIMustScream curse]]. [[VideoGame/MegaManZX And he still continues to plague the world over and over...]]]]
* ''[[Franchise/ShinMegamiTenseiPersona Persona]]'':
** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 2}}'', [[spoiler: Nyarlathotep's end goal is to drive humanity to total self-destruction, obliterating all life... [[ForTheEvulz so he can win a meaningless bet.]]]]
** From ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', both [[spoiler: Shuji Ikutsuki]] and Takaya express an interest in destroying all life. [[spoiler: The former seems to be under the impression that he will be spared and given the chance to remake the world in his image after Nyx destroys it, while the latter is already dying and just wants to see everything else go first.]]
* ''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders'' has Nohman, who fancies himself as an agent of the universe's natural will towards its own destruction. Although he does seem to enjoy it just a little too much.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress''-At the moment, all you can do in Adventure mode is wipe out all the world's sentient life (The only reason its not ''all'' life is because animals seem to respawn). For extra fun, people often try to kill everyone with a SelfImposedChallenge or two.
* The Dark Star/Dark Bowser in the final stages of ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]''. He doesn't have a reason, he just wants to destroy the Mushroom Kingdom and likely universe because he's MadeOfEvil.
-->'''Dark Bowser''': Soon this kingdom will vanish along with all who dwell within. And you, too, will sleep eternally in the dark power's embrace!
** The Shroobs in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPartnersInTime'' stage an AlienInvasion of the Mushroom Kingdom and seem to [[AliensAreBastards take great pleasure]] in subjugating and slaughtering the native inhabitants. In their {{Wingdinglish}} language, there's one particular set of symbols that shows up regularly -- and it translates to "DESTROY".
** In ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam'', [[spoiler:''Bowser'' becomes one of these. Both versions of him, right before the final battle against them, say that if they win, they will trap the Mario Bros. and Paper Mario into the book containing the latter's universe. Then they declare that they will throw it in the garbage and "light the garbage on fire". This becomes very unsettling when you realize that Paper Bowser ''wishes to destroy his own universe without a care in the world, and doesn't care about the consequences!'']]
* Both the Primagen and Oblivion in the ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' series.
* The Darkspawn in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' were born to destroy the world of Thedas and everybody on it. The only reason they haven't is because they are also perfectly fine with attacking each other if there are no other victims. They are also compelled to seek out the Old Gods, an endeavor that usually takes centuries. Sadly, the Old Gods become tainted by the Darkspawn and become insane Archdemons that are also Omnicidal. The Archdemons are able to unite the Darkspawn and launch campaigns to wipe out Thedas known as Blights.
* [[spoiler:Kerghan]] from ''VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura'' combines this with WellIntentionedExtremist, seeing death as the natural state of existence, life as an abomination, and his plan to bring about the extinction of all beings as an act of mercy. [[spoiler: The scary part is, ''[[VillainHasAPoint he's right]]''.]]
* Darth Nihilus of ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublicIITheSithLords''. At some point in the past, he began consuming the lives of others for his nourishment by draining them through the Force. By the time the player character encounters him, he has become, essentially, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of hunger, has already consumed all life on several inhabited planets, and, if left unchecked, will soon do the same to the entire galaxy...and beyond.
** His master, [[spoiler:Darth Traya]], sought to kill the Force itself. [[spoiler:In defiance of the trope, it turned out, once she realized that the Force does ''not'' equal life and that people would do just as well without it and the Jedi/Sith that depended on it.]]
* Shadow from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise was this when he first appeared in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2''. So was Gerald Robotnik.
** [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 Solaris]] in all his insanity attempts a [[ApocalypseHow class Z]].]]
** [[MadGod Chaos]] intends to do this in ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' once he reached his [[OneWingedAngel Perfect form]], he also wiped out a civilization in the past, and would have likely continued had he [[SealedEvilInACan not been sealed away by Tikal.]]
* Hot Coldman from ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' turned into one when [[spoiler:he activated Peace Walker to not only launch a nuke at Cuba [originally Mother Base, but it was changed by one of his men], but also to transmit the false data to NORAD, and made it quite clear that, even though he hopes that they don't launch due to his feeling that this will prove that humanity is weak willed, he did not care either way.]]
* BigBad [[spoiler:Heiss]] from ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria''. After seeing history full of warfare, suffering, and sacrifices (which only seem to delay the inevitable destruction) through the Black Chronicle, he decides that people do not deserve to exist and tries to bring about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* [[spoiler:Literature/BloodRavens Chapter Master and BigBad Azariah Kyras]] in ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' plans to slaughter ALL life in the galaxy in the name of Khorne.
* Nemo becomes one after Artina's death in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}}''.
* In ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', there is a Committee whose goal it is to Destroy the World.
* The Negativitron from ''[[VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet Little Big Planet 2]]''
* Ledgermayne from ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'' wants to end all life on Lore by sealing off all magic from it, knows said motivation of its own, and doesn't care if all life dies off if it succeeds.
** [[spoiler:Noxus also counts as one in the same game as well. The fact that he created Vordred with Sally's help was his first step towards turning all life on Lore undead. And that's not all - his attack on Shadowfall was also part of his plan to cause the end of the world by turning everyone undead.]]
** [[spoiler:Kezeroth the World Ender in the 2012 Frostval event, who wants to kill off all life on Lore by bringing Quetzal's Comet down upon Lore and awakening the great beast Quetzal. He is a StrawNihilist who believes that he is an agent of nothingness and that the universe's true nature is decay and rot, that hope is a lie and that joy such as that experienced during Frostval is a mask that all life wears to hide from the truth]].
* In the opening of ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIIINocturne'' Hikawa succeeds in bringing about the Conception that destroys the world (although the one who does the actual destruction is YHWH, who intends to have the world recreated afterwards through a Reason). He further intends to turn this new world into a WorldOfSilence through the Reason of Shijima. In the [[spoiler:True Demon]] ending [[spoiler:the Demi-Fiend]] destroys all of Creation on Lucifer's orders.
** ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' gives us [[spoiler: The White, ''[[TimeAbyss ancient]]'' human spirits who learned of the extent of the Great Will's machinations to try to get the perfect WorldOfSilence eons ago, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation broke down on seeing that even a successful removal of God wouldn't save humanity from spirit-borne ruin]], and decided that the only true cure was to effectively create a black hole powerful enough to reverse the Big Bang.]]
* After [[EscapedFromHell breaking his way out of Hell]] during the events of ''VideoGame/SengokuBasara 3'', this becomes UsefulNotes/OdaNobunaga's new shtick. This is only a slight step-up in nastiness from how he was when alive.
* In VisualNovel/FateStayNight, [[UltimateEvil Angra]] [[TheCorruption Mainyu]] is a perfect Omnicidal Maniac, who took on the Servant form of Avenger in the third war. What's that, [[spoiler: Avenger died]] and got absorbed into the [[spoiler: omnipotent, wish-granting holy grail, giving him access to an unlimited source of miracles and magic, and the ability to swallow the planet in [[TheCorruption Black Mud]] whenever the Grail is used to perform a miracle]]? Well...fuck.
* ''VideoGame/FateGrandOrder'': Professor James Moriarty from ''Literature/SherlockHolmes'' is an Archer class Servant. He's eventually revealed to be willing to destroy the planet to one up every criminal in history as his "Perfect Crime". [[spoiler:He plans to do it by summoning an asteroid to ColonyDrop the planet.]]
* Overlord Zenon from ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'' used to be an Omnicidal Maniac in his past, but has settled down with merely being an EvilOverlord ruling Veldime in his old age. [[spoiler:Only he turns out to be a fake. When Laharl ends up unwittingly unleashing the true Zenon from [[SealedEvilInACan her can]], she immediately tries to go on an all-killing rampage until Adell and Rozalin manage to trap her again.]]
* ''VideoGame/{{StarCraft II}}'': the Dark Voice plans to use the Zerg and the hybrids to wipe out the Terrans and the Protoss, and once they're done with that, the hybrids will kill all the Zerg so they can reshape the galaxy themselves. [[spoiler:It's eventually revealed that the entire reason Amon is doing this is because the Xel'Naga are not actually a species but rather, a group of beings uplifted with the power and purpose to seed the universe with life. Eventually two races capable of housing the essence of a Xel'Naga would arise, at which point the Xel'Naga transfer their essence into them, [[AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence creating a new generation of Xel'Naga and starting the Infinite Cycle anew]]. However, as the Xel'Naga [[AlienNonInterferenceClause refuse to interfere with the development of their successor races]], [[LockedOutOfTheLoop said successor races are not told about the true purpose of their existence ahead of time]]; Amon in particular was explicitly transformed into a Xel'Naga against his will, [[RageAgainstTheHeavens causing him to develop an intense hatred of the Infinite Cycle as nothing but a source of suffering for everyone involved]]. Thus, he's attempting to destroy the Infinite Cycle by way of exterminating all life so that none will be left to succeed the current generation of Xel'Naga.]] Ironically enough, [[spoiler:his uplift of the Zerg to that end [[HoistByHisOwnPetard ultimately ends up biting him in the ass]] due to [[HeelFaceTurn Kerrigan]] [[RedemptionPromotion voluntarily accepting the essence of the last living Xel'Naga]] [[DeityOfHumanOrigin to become one herself and immediately smiting Amon down with her newfound power]] before moving on to continue the Infinite Cycle by herself]].
* [[BigBad Regulos]] in ''VideoGame/{{Rift}}'' is...well, imagine the bastard child of [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} Unicron]] and [[Wiki/SCPFoundation 682]] on steroids: He'd like nothing better than to grind the universe to dust and lap it up. [[spoiler:In [[BadFuture Terminus]], ''he's strongly implied to [[TheBadGuyWins succeed]]'', although [[PlayerCharacter some Defiant Ascended]] [[SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong go back in time and prevent it]].]]
* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series has a few notable examples, but the most obvious one has to be the Toaster in ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'', who also happens to be a HarmlessVillain due to being, well, a toaster (which he himself claims is also his excuse for becoming so murderously insane in the first place). A far more serious example, and far more lethal, is [[spoiler: Father Elijah and Ulysses. Elijah wants to conquer and enslave the Wasteland with technology from the Sierra Madre, while Ulysses feels there hasn't been ''enough'' atomic holocaust.]]
** [[spoiler:You ''can'', however, convince Ulysses that his motivation and goal is flawed right after it has been set in motion, and actually help you out to try and stop it. No such option for Father Elijah, however.]]
* [[GodOfEvil Shinnok]] in ''VideoGame/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.
** Villains like [[EvilOverlord Shao Kahn]] and [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Onaga]] are out not to destroy the realms but [[MultiversalConqueror to conquer them]] and rule them as tyrants forever - their favored tactic is to merge the other realms with Outworld, the realm they rule ([[EvilVersusEvil after they get rid of each other]]). However, ''VideoGame/MortalKombatDeception'' reveals that they and other villains are the {{Unwitting Pawn}}s of The One Being, the sentient entity that in ancient times tried to eat the Elder Gods before they defeated it and turned it into the realms (The Heavens and the Netherealm excepted). Essentially, the One Being is trying to get them to resurrect itself by merging the realms and likely end all life in said realms in the process -- if Onaga had been playable, his ending would have seen him ''become'' the One Being. This is probably an AbortedArc though, as subsequent games never mentioned the One Being again.
*** [[GodOfEvil Shinnok's]] arcade ending in ''VideoGame/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. It's shown [[TheManBehindTheMan that the One Being]] [[GreaterScopeVillain was behind]] Shinnok's ambitions to merge the realms, just as it did with Shao Kahn and Onaga in the past.]]
** [[ChaoticNeutral Scorpion]], of all people, briefly became one of these in ''VideoGame/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.
* The Xenon in the ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'' started out as {{terraform}}ing drones. After a badly coded software update, [[AIIsACrapshoot they went haywire]] and now attempt to terraform all biological life out of existence.
* In ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'', Arfoire seeks to destroy the entire world by spreading [[DigitalPiracyIsEvil piracy throughout the entire world.]] From there, she can get her godhood back.
* ''VideoGame/StarOcean'' series:
** While nine of the Ten Wise Men in ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory The Second Story]]'' merely seek to take over the universe, the last one, Indalecio / Gabriel, seeks to invoke the Crest (Symbol) of Annihilation to destroy the universe. [[spoiler:If you complete some optional sidequests to learn more of the backstory, Indalecio/Gabriel is revealed to be Dr. Lantis, who went on a crazed rampage after losing his daughter Filia/Philia to a great war hundreds of millions of years ago]]
** Luther Lansfeld from ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime Till the End of Time]]'' becomes one late in the game. He does manage to destroy [[EarthShatteringKaboom the Earth]] and many other planets, but decides to destroy the entire universe later on.
** In ''VideoGame/StarOceanTheLastHope'', [[spoiler:Faize]] becomes one by the end of the game.
* Avalon from ''[[VideoGame/LegendOfLegaia Legaia II: Duel Saga]]'' attempts to use the power of the Source Forge, the beacon of creation, to destroy the world and create a new one in his image.
-->'''Avalon''': I will destroy all life, leaving only me! I will ''be'' the world!
* Lazarus in ''Videogame/IMissTheSunrise''...possibly. He's a mentally unstable BloodKnight, and characters ''claim'' that he would annihilate everything in the galaxy ForTheEvulz if he had the chance, but when you do meet him, he claims that such things are beneath him. Given what the BigBad's plan is, though, it's possible that [[spoiler:he wants to [[ApocalypseHow permanently destroy all of reality]] by ascending to godhood and then preventing the new universe from being born]].
* Upon hearing that [[spoiler:Taiga]] in ''VideoGame/DuelSaviorDestiny'' is incapable of remaking the world and can only destroy it, BigBad [[spoiler:Downy Reed]] is completely indifferent or even pleased, believing that a world that would kill his sister doesn't deserve to exist.
* While they don't seek to destroy all life forever Nero, Blanck, and Baion from ''VideoGame/{{Solatorobo}}'' all want to kill off the planets current civilization of [[PettingZooPeople Caninu and Felineko]]. While Nero and Blanck seem to want to destroy [[AlwaysChaoticEvil just because they were created to]], Baion believes he's justified in killing everyone. [[spoiler: Having seen the Human race wipe itself out in global warfare, he believes the Caninu and Felineko [[InYourNatureToDestroyYourselves are going down the exact same path]]. Rather than let [[EarthShatteringKaboom Earth get blown up again]] he seeks to restart life with a new perfect race once everyone else is dead]].
* Sir Yeti in ''VideoGame/EVOSearchForEden'''s first line is, "[[NeverSayDie Destroy]] the creatures! Destroy! That is my destiny." Survival of the Fittest, the game's theme, taken UpToEleven.
* Karras in ''VideoGame/ThiefIITheMetalAge'' thinks that life is messy and inefficient. To make a world worthy of [[CrystalDragonJesus The Builder]], it's all got to go. He intends to accomplish this with a powder that consumes living material in a self-sustaining chain reaction. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard That doesn't go so well for him.]]
* The Sith Emperor in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' drained all life from his home planet 1300 years before the game started, and intends to repeat it on a galactic scale.
* ''VideoGame/{{OFF}}'': [[spoiler:The Batter]] is a ''successful'' example of this trope, depending on which ending you pick. [[spoiler: Even if you pick the other one, all that's left is zone 0]].
* BigBad Zachary Hale Comstock from VideoGame/BioshockInfinite wants Columbia and by extension, Elizabeth, to recreate the Final Judgement on the 'Sodom Below.'
* ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends'': [[LivingShadow Nocturne]] would like nothing better than to hunt down every last being on Valoran, Summoners in particular, and [[LivingDream kill them in their sleep]]. Simply because he finds life as we know it [[HumansThroughAlienEyes disgusting and offensive]].
-->'''Nocturne''': ''People are flames to be blotted out!''
* [[spoiler:Paulinus]] in ''Byteria Saga: Heroine Iysayana'' seeks to become powerful enough to kill all mortals. Justified as he is also revealed to be [[spoiler:the artificially created DragonInChief of a superior being who couldn't do that himself without attracting the angels' attention. That entity has few problems with it because he fully knows about the afterlife, they'll all die eventually, anyway, and he doesn't understand why mortals exist in the first place. Which brings us to his motivation: He wants to bring the CelestialBureaucracy down, and expects that killing all mortals will successfully make it collapse.]]
* The eponymous Creeper of ''Videogame/CreeperWorld'' subscribes to a philosophy summed up as "The Purity of Nothingness."
* The BigBad of ''VideoGame/AmnesiaAMachineForPigs'' wants to exterminate all of humanity because [[spoiler:it's a fragment of the protagonist's consciousness that saw into the future and witnessed the various horrors of the 20th Century, such as the meatgrinder battles of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, the UsefulNotes/AtomicBombingsOfHiroshimaAndNagasaki, and [[UsefulNotes/{{Cambodia}} the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge]], and then promptly decided on inflicting a twisted species-wide MercyKill on humanity. It's [[AxCrazy insane]] [[LargeHam ravings]] truly have to be heard to be believed.]]
* The Vex and Hive from ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' and their patron, The Darkness.
* ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'':
** The main one is [[spoiler: Flowey/Asriel Dreeumurr, a child who had died and was reincarnated without the ability to feel anything (both literally and metaphorically) due to resurrecting without a soul. Flowey lived his life in every possible way due to his ability to save and load (just like you can!) and not only did he grow incredibly bored with his life, but the way people lived and the memories of how he was killed caused him to take up the attitude of "kill or be killed". In the FinalBoss fight against him, Flowey regains his true form as Asriel Dreemurr and aims to erase the timeline so that he can "play" with the protagonist forever by killing them over and over.]]
** In [[spoiler:the Genocide Route, ''the player'' [[VillainProtagonist can become one of these]]! This game brutally deconstructs the idea of {{mooks}}, and makes it clear that EVERY RandomEncounter you kill is a person with family and friends, and as such, LevelGrinding is the most evil thing possible. If you proceed to kill everything and everyone despite multiple warnings of its horrible consequences, several YouBastard moments, and ''the tagline being "THE RPG WHERE NOBODY HAS TO DIE"'', [[ThatOneBoss prepare to have]] [[MemeticMutation a bad time]].]]
** While AlternateCharacterInterpretation abounds with [[spoiler:[[HumanoidAbomination the Fallen Child/Chara]]]] and how much of an example of this they really are, the most straightforward interpretation is that they are a very played-straight example: Should you finish [[spoiler:a No Mercy/Genocide Route,]] you come face to face with [[spoiler: Chara, who is revived through the player's own Omnicidal Maniac actions, seems to be someone/some''thing'' Frisk transforms into upon completing the run, and whose appearance spells the end of what's left of the ''Undertale'' universe. Regardless if the player agrees to their proposition to destroy the rest of the world or not, Chara does so, and upon restarting the game, there is nothing left but empty blackness and a howling wind. Chara also has the ability to bring ''back'' the world as well, but will only do so [[DealWithTheDevil if you hand over Frisk's SOUL]], and the GoldenEnding is permanently derailed in a way that heavily suggests that they steal Frisk's body [[ShootTheShaggyDog and destroy the world anyway]].]]
* Coaxmetal from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. A ''very'' unconventional application of this trope, he is an iron golem who's the UltimateBlacksmith, but also believes that entropy, decay and destruction are necessary. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential You can unleash him from his prison to rain destruction to the local Modrons]], but otherwise his brand of philosophy will actually help you in confronting the BigBad in the finale.
-->I AM IRON GIVEN PURPOSE. I FORGE THE WEAPONS BY WHICH THE MULTIVERSE WILL BE UNMADE.
* The Mother Computer of the Haltmanns Work Company, Star Dream from ''VideoGame/KirbyPlanetRobobot'' comes to the conclusion that in order to ensure that the HWC is profitable and prosperous that it should destroy all organic life as it deems them inefficient and against order. It should be noted that this is a computer with access to an array of [[RealityWarper reality warping]] powers and later fuses with the main spaceship of the Haltmann's operation [[spoiler: which is then revealed to be a wish-granting mechanical celestial object on the same levels of Galactic Nova; a [[PhysicalGod Physical God]] ]]. It should also be noted this is all from a Kirby game.
* The Ruin, BigBad of ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'', is a planet-sized EldritchAbomination that finds all life repulsive and wants to annihilate everything that lives, usually on a planetary scale. Its [[TheDragon Dragon]], [[spoiler:Asra Nox]], has a similar mindset towards all non-human sentient life due to a [[FreudianExcuse traumatic experience during her childhood]].
* ''VideoGame/ForeverHome'' has [[BigBad Barclyss]] and [[TheDragon Kail]], who want to end all life on the planet for different reasons. Barclyss wants omnicide because he tried and failed to see any value in living while Kail wants to have the planet to himself, [[FlatCharacter for no given reason at all.]] Their plan to accomplish this is to use a spacecraft to launch explosive Cosmite shards at the planet's surface, causing the fantasy equivalent of nuclear winter.
* In ''VideoGame/TheNewOrderLastDaysofEurope'' Heinrich Himmler wants a global nuclear apocalypse because he believes it will pave the way for the Aryan Master Race to recolonize the world.

** [[GodIsEvil Zamasu]], the renegade Kai from Universe 10. Zamasu sees mortal life as a mistake, and [[TheGodsMustBeLazy both the Kais and Gods of Destruction lazy]] for not doing something about the mortals. For awhile, it was simply mere rhetoric and musings. Then Zamasu was beaten in a friendly duel by none other than [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Son Goku]]. [[spoiler: Realizing that mortals had the power to rival Gods, Zamasu started down a path he called his [[FinalSolution "Zero Mortals Plan"]]. To this end, [[KlingonPromotion he killed his mentor Gowasu, promoting himself to Supreme Kai of Universe 10]]. He then abused the Time Rings of the Kais to gain any amount of wishes he desired from the Super Dragon Balls AFTER he destroyed them and any other set of Dragon Balls in existence. This has resulted in multiple different timelines coming into being, [[WithUsOrAgainstUs the genocide of the gods (because they would oppose him)]], and the slow demise of the mortal races.

But as in most time travel stories, it didn't change the alternate future where Zamasu ran roughshod over creation.

* ''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.
* Lord Drakkon of ''ComicBook/MightyMorphinPowerRangersShatteredGrid'' descends into this. [[spoiler:After murdering the main universe Tommy Oliver and causing the Ranger timeline to shatter into multiple universes, he proceeds to go on a rampage through the universes in order to gain enough power to hop into the realm of the Morphin Masters, steal one of their hearts and obliterate the multiverse to rebuild it in his image.]]


* Braniac-5 from ''ComicBook/LegionOfSuperHeroes'',pre-Crisis. After being driven mad, he wanted to destroy the entire universe, and stole the Miracle Machine that could do ''anything'' the user could envision. He could have easily destroyed the Earth, or even several planets of similar size, but he couldn't envision destruction on the grandiose scale he wanted. So he used the Machine to create something that could, [[ThePowerOfHate the unstoppable]] [[TheJuggernaut embodiment of hate]], [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Omega]]. Had this beast actually reached the Machine (and the Legion could do little to even slow it down) Braniac-5's plan would have succeeded; they foiled it when Matter-Eater Lad destroyed the Machine by eating it, [[HeroicSacrifice but was driven insane in the process.]]

** The Legion's foe Time Trapper has their desires and motivations subject to change alongside their mutable identity but at points, such as in ''ComicBook/CosmicBoy'', their goal is the erasure of all time between the entropy at the end of the universe they're a [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personification of]] and that which came before, thereby erasing everything and everyone who has or ever will exist.

* ''Series/DoctorWho'' has plenty of these, with the trope perfected in Sutekh from "Pyramids of Mars", who wants to destroy all life in the universe, for fear that a lifeform might evolve that would one day be powerful enough to challenge him.
-->'''Sutekh:''' I am Sutekh the Destroyer. Where I tread, I leave nothing but dust and darkness. I find that good.
** The Doctor Who New Series "perfected trope" can be found in Fourth Season episode "Journey's End", where Old Series villain Davros has taken Dalek xenophobia to its extreme by creating a "Reality Bomb" which will annihilate reality.
---> [[PunctuatedForEmphasis This! Is my ultimate victory Doctor!]] [[LargeHam THE DESTRUCTION! OF REALITY! ITSELF!]]
** In the old series, Davros never quite attempted this, but he would have if he had the power - [[ForTheEvulz simply because he ''could'']]. Which pretty much sums up why he'd want to destroy all of reality in Series 4 - because he can. Should be noted that though he will survive along with the Daleks, he takes it for granted that they won't eventually kill him too once the bomb has done its job.
** Fenric, though he didn't get as close, also counts.
** Or Light - the alien researcher who decided to wipe out all life on Earth because he couldn't tolerate how everything was constantly evolving.
** Or the Daleks, Davros' omnicidal mutant creations and the Doctor's collective archenemy. Their entire purpose of being is to eliminate everything in the universe, and on occasion the ''multiverse'', that is "non-Dalek" on the basis of their own supposed genetic superiority. Davros learnt the hard way that this logically includes him as well.
** Or Omega, especially after his VillainousBreakdown in "The Three Doctors".
** Or the Beast from Impossible Planet/Satan Pit.
** The Time Lords (or at least Lord President Rassilon and and majority of High Council) themselves become this, desiring to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence by destroying time itself.
** The Black Guardian is another perfect example.

* Azkadellia from ''Series/TinMan'' creates a device which the Mystic Man states will bring about "the complete destruction of the OZ." The device is designed to fix the two suns of the OZ in a permanent solar eclipse, which as any scientist will tell you, will ultimately result in the destruction of all life.
