• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

  • Downfall and Hammered Down.
  • Averted in Kyon: Big Damn Hero. Koizumi absolutely refuses to use his new powers on unwilling subjects, seeking consent before experimenting on them, which makes it difficult for him to practice his powers.
  • Ho-oh from Poke Wars wants Pokémon-kind to live in a utopia. He plans to achieve this utopia by engaging in a genocide against humanity. He later Jumps Off the Slippery Slope by doing things like ordering wanton killing of Pokémon, contrary to his ideals, utterly ruining the environment and not giving a damn about it, and generally being a filthy hypocrite.
  • The Original Character Big Bad from The Man With No Name is this.
  • Red Eye of Fallout Equestria is this, and naturally fits Face Heel Turn too. He started his own personal quest to rebuild Equestria, probably long before Little Pip even found her Cutie Mark, but became so driven to reach this huge goal that he let go of his morals. Soon, he had built up an empire upon the backs of slaves, hired merciless mercenaries to protect his assets, and forged a deal with The Goddess (which he planned to break once he worked out how to become a God himself, and kill The Goddess), who was a genocidal maniac herself. All of the things he did, no matter how horrible, were done to achieve the noble goal of rebuilding Equestria and bettering the lives of its inhabitants.
  • In the Pony POV Series, the second Big Bad, Princess Gaia, Fluttershy's Super-Powered Evil Side, is this. She only wants to create a utopia were no one suffers and everyone is brainwashing everyone into being happy and turning every pony into foals in both mind and body.
  • The Astraea organization in A Cure for Love, especially V. When the original Kira disappears they take it upon themselves to "cleanse the world" in his absence.
  • In Clash of the Elements, Joe Dark THINKS he is one of these, but as Alex points out to him after learning of his backstory, his ends don't really justify the means.
