* [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ruin]], BigBad of Creator/BrandonSanderson's [[Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy Mistborn trilogy]]. It was one of the two primal gods (its counterpart was Preservation), who combined their powers to create the world- something to which Ruin agreed only on the condition that it would get to destroy said world someday. To be fair, one can't really hold this against Ruin, as it's the literal god of destruction and is just doing its job, but still the thing seems incapable of recognizing that unchecked destruction is ''bad'' (or maybe it does recognize it, but because of what it is it is incapable of caring).

Added DiffLines:

** 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]].]]


* 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!

* ''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 ForgottenRealms is responsible for the empire's collapse. He naturally comes to the conclusion that the whole world needs to be destroyed in retaliation.

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