Her home was dissolving into chaos, the world's greatest protector had completely vanished, and one of the few people she thought she could trust was refusing to help. Despite knowing she would be maligned as an evil tyrant, she took matters into her own hands, helping to bring order and balance to a crumbling nation using any means necessary-even those that attacked her nation, she allowed to live and sent them to camps where they could learn to be more loyal people and contribute to others rather than harming them. When she decided to expand her nation in order to bring the rest of the world under her care as well, her fiancé was kidnapped and she was forced to choose between her home and man she loved.

    Colonial 1. 1 
  • There was once a man, a man with an unshakeable belief in himself and in order, who was born with the right to rule over and protect his world. He also had to see to that world's, and therefore his, interests and resources. When he looked around his home, he saw his order implemented to perfection, so much so that his people called him their God. Oh, he had to keep them on their toes every now and then, and had to give them a large amount of work to do, but on a planet like his, harsh environs and all, this was very necessary. He then looked to the endless stars and planets out beyond his realm, and thought that he should bring his order to the chaos out there, maybe even create an entire state, comprising them all in perfect lawful harmony. His, of course. After all, his way had worked so well here, he should bring it everywhere!
    • The nearest world, however, was not very receptive to his ideas, or his requisition of territory (they didn't even need it!). In fact, they and their incompetent, superstitious, blowhard of a leader launched a massive, completely pointless war with the man, taking his world's meager resources almost to its breaking point. Peace came with a terrible, personal cost: the ruler's very own son. In his own son's place was that of his enemy, who would become, despite what little attention the busy ruler could spare him (and military training, too), a lumbering oaf who, more often than not, roared off on reckless campaigns which did not help (or even hindered) his 'father'. Oh, how the man tried to make the impetuous child understand that his attempts to please were going the wrong way, but somehow, none of it got through.
    • The Ruler would look elsewhere to bring his ideas to full flowering, resources to properly sustain his governance, worlds lush and chaotic, clearly meant for his fiery gaze to meet and put the law to. He would meet his biological son many more times in his search, now a man in his prime, a nearly unparalleled warrior. Sadly, this most worthy son had been raised and thoroughly indoctrinated by his old foe, and could not be swayed from their inconsiderate and illogical ways by any means. In all their encounters, the father would always praise his wayward son and his fighting ability, no matter how harsh the fighting, no matter how vitriolic the outburst in return.
    • Eventually, the Ruler would come across a little blue world in the backwaters of an average galaxy, which nevertheless had many extraordinary things and people upon it. So chaotic, though! Many times he would attempt to make the people of this world see things his way, but he would always be thwarted by the self-righteous hypocrites who would have none of it, foremost among them, a man who didn't even belong to that world! The Ruler gradually became tired of it, seeking a way to easily and instantly bring order to the cosmos, a way which he could handle within his own specific parameters. In the end, this Ruler would find that way...and then die before he could properly bring it to function throughout the universe, all at the hands of a man who gave up his own beliefs to kill him. Darkseid. Yeah, it's a doozy, but a piece of work like him deserves a doozy.

  • This far-seeing teacher takes a young man of prophecy as his apprentice, in hopes that someday, the two can stop the cult that destroyed his hometown from causing the destruction of the entire world. Master Van from Tales of the Abyss.

  • All he wants to do is become king and replace the corrupt and ineffectual rulers who got his homeland into a brutal war in the first place. While he betrayed his friends to do so, they were planning on abandoning him and his noble cause to pursue their own selfish interests. The one hit hardest by the betrayal, his best friend and second-in-command, was a sociopath who only knew how to kill and took clear enjoyment in slaughtering people weaker than himself. Griffith from Berserk.
  • He wants the world to be a better place and actively tries to accomplish his dream. While he is a remorseless killer, he only killed those who either deserved it or got in his way. He admitted that he was not perfect and had no place in the world he was trying to create. His main foe was a man who was hiding two criminals with knowledge of government secrets, and who not only made no attempt to improve his personality but actively embraced his worst flaws. The Operative from Serenity.

    Crash Man 
  • A jaded teen who was born with powers that isolated him from other people when he tried to interact with them. He teamed up with a person and started a relationship with her only to be double-crossed. In pursuit, he hopes to gain vengeance and give justice to six other people who were also victims of her monstrous treachery (as well as stop anyone from dating her at all, for the sake of the universe, so that no more people suffer), albeit in differing ways. Some Chaotic Evil hipster and a terrible story writer stand in all of their ways. Simply put, they all had some mental issue and really were just a support group that should have made use of the "group" part of their function, and maybe tried to emulate less of their Crapsack World. Erroneously labeled as a monster on the grounds of his goal of preserving those he loves so they don't die. Gideon Gordon Graves of The League of Evil Exes, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World...(shudders) I hate vs. the World outside of the League of Evil Exes. 'Nuff said.

Munna, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity
  • Bullied and teased as a child, he could only find refuge in the silver screen. The actors there provided him with the idea that he could rise against those who had troubled him. His fierce determination led to him finally getting the strength to show that he was no longer going to tolerate being pushed around. Muggshot, Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
  • As a poor child, he was fascinated by the New Year fireworks displays of the noblemen of his country. He spent well over a decade refining his talent... only for them to not hold up. With fierce determination, he improved his skills and became a powerful leader... only to be defeated and humiliated by a small-time thief. Combined with his beloved daughter being taken away to be married to an unscrupulous tyrant, this was enough to break him. He struggled with finding inner peace, and was unable... until, ironically, he somehow was roped into working with his fiercest enemy. The Panda King, Sly Cooper series

  • His talents were incredible, and it seemed like he was on the way to become a big-time opera star... until the times changed and opera was replaced by a more disagreeable genre of music.

  • Let me begin by noting our hero's pacifist attitude: an experienced warrior, he had seen his share of battle damage both physical and mental, and thus believed in solving his problems by negotiating first and fighting only if he had to. As a matter of fact he was quite a charmer and rather popular with the ladies (the battle damage, to be fair, may have helped.) However, this one was more than just any old veteran: he used to be a prince, the younger and - in the eyes of his father - less beloved of two sons. In spite of this he did have the self-confidence to not let his father's and brother's long history of disregard and disrespect show much beyond the occasional mouthing off about his brother's side of the family.
Sadly, when the elder brother inherited the crown the people were given a monarch who was openly racist to the point of being outright murderous. By contrast, the peaceful and quietly competent younger brother sought to restore relations with at least one of the oppressed minority groups. More still, when the king suffered a fatal accident set up by said minority the younger brother, now king himself, forwent punishing them in favour of attempting to coexist.
Of course good things rarely last long, and when our hero's nephew - inexperienced, overconfident and overly entitled crown prince that he was - expected to be handed the keys to the kingdom despite being a child, our hero was forced to exile the young one until he would come to his senses. That young one, however, went on to grow up doing nothing but slack off all day even in banishment.
In the following years the kingdom had been suffering under severe drought, and rather than blame the heavens and pray for change the people began to turn on their king. Relations with the aforementioned minority group had gradually been souring again, and to make matters even worse the exiled prince returned, irresponsible as ever but now also emboldened by ambition and self-righteousness, and outright threw his uncle off the nearest cliff.
When this uncle, our hero, the rightful king who worked hard to earn his crown, was found to still live, rather than nurse him back to health and stand against the usurper prince, representatives of the very minority he had trusted and given power beyond even that of his own kind brutally murdered him, a wounded, literally a beaten man.
Warrior that he was, he could have driven them off or at least given them a black eye, but even faced with certain death he still believed in mercy.

Scar, The Lion King (1994)

  • A child's kindness is repaid by them getting pushed into a murder-suicide plot by their new best friend. When his unwillingness to actually commit murder gets him killed instead, he is unintentionally brought back to life countless years later in an unrelated science experiment that leaves him emotionally crippled and a functional quadriplegic, but also one with a newfound ability to bounce back from death and "reset" time back to his resurrection. Despite everything, he spends countless "resets" helping those around him, before burning out on this "Groundhog Day" Loop and slipping into violence. However, due to everything being reset anyway, his actions aren't permanent and only he knows they ever happened. Eventually, he meets another child that resembles his old best friend, and when this child shows him kindness despite his continued aggression and violence, he cannot fight back the feelings of guilt and gives up everything he has to help people again, ultimately just having wanted his friend back all this time. Asriel/Flowey, Undertale

There he finds that the newly coronated queen is an emotionally unstable bundle of anxieties who also has unexplained, uncontrollable superpowers that nearly freezes the entire kingdom in a magically induce Endless Winter, while the only other heir to the throne is an impulsive, naive, airheaded child that never grew up with delusions of fairy-tale romance who would only leave the kingdom to ruin. Using the skills he learns, he harnesses them in a zeal of leadership to the foreign kingdom left in chaos and confusion. He inserts himself into the royal family's affairs by charming the sister, making himself king with the intent of killing the sorceress and leaving the stupid one to die, allowing him to lead a country out of the geological quagmire the previous ruler left it.

  • A leader who sees the inherent unfairness in a pact that forces her kind to remain in hiding while human kind are allowed free reign over the planet in a pact that supposedly protects both species, trying to unify all of her kind under a leader that shares these views in-spite of this being an unpopular opinion in order to shift the unfair balance of power. She also believes that leaving all of her kind's fate in the hands of a single "Chosen One" appointed great power by a fickle Ancient Artifact everyone has complete, unthinking faith in is antiquated and ineffective and wishes to change this dichotomy, especially when this Chosen One is a member of the same species that benefits from her kind staying in the shadows.

  • She was created with the express purpose of helping manage a growing, eternally propagating civilization, colonizing other places to better propagate her species. She has done this her entire life and doesn't know anything else. Questioning her in these matters is an affront to her existence because she has the experience to carry it out and is unable to do anything else. Her "baby sister" was murdered in cold-blood (or so she thinks) and she spends what little free time she has trying and failing to help break her "fraternal twin" out of an emotional spiral, made even harder by the fact that her "twin" has the power to psychologically assault people around her with her own bad emotions. Her "mom" is an absentee, emotionally abusive supremacist who sees everyone around her (include her "daughters") not as people with their own thoughts and emotions, but as extensions of herself and instills impossible standards on them, her colonization all in a vein attempt to get her approval. When it is revealed that her "baby sister" faked her death and abandoned them and her "fraternal twin" is willing to attack her in-spite of everything she did, this nearly forces her off of the deep end. Yellow Diamond, Steven Universe

He continues to return sporadically, especially in times when evil is at its worst, to fight against those who permit such evil to thrive. Dracula from Castlevania.
  • A powerful being who is notable for his imposing physical presence, more intelligence than his outward appearance suggests, and skill in a wide variety of combat methods that include his natural abilities, weaponry, and sorcery. His goal is to kill or otherwise dethrone a noted and almost universally despised evil king who seeks to destroy the world's entire population. His first attempt involved gaining the leadership of his enemy's army and using it against him and his surviving heirs. His next notable attempt involved teaming up with a powerful ally to allow him to travel back in time and eliminate the king before he could ever come into power, thus undoing a long life of evil deeds and gaining the throne with a minimum of bloodshed. He is most commonly remembered for an occasion when he was trapped in an out-of-the-way room of his enemy's fortress from which he could not escape. Even then, he didn't actually do anything before he was attacked and killed by his enemy's only son in an act that served no actual purpose aside from giving the son the power to subject others to a slow death with his mere physical presence. And worst of all, everyone would rather have the evil king in power than him, for no adequately explained reason. Galamoth, also from Castlevania.
