Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })If the enemy race is Always Chaotic Evil (as far as your side's viewpoint is concerned, at least) or you simply don't want to get trapped in a Cycle of Revenge, why not simply exterminate them all? Including the children — especially the children — to make sure they don't rise up to become warriors. Deal with the whole damned problem once and for all!
Before the 20th century, this trope wasn't really problematic (though it became increasingly more frowned upon after The Middle Ages or so). Just kill them all; it makes perfect sense. Then the Kaiserreich, the Ottoman Empire, and Nazi Germany came along and did it for real. But after the Nazis did it for real, people started to learn about the Holocaust — and to their horror learned what a Final Solution actually looked like, felt like, and meant. After World War II, genocide, as this phenomenon was subsequently named, stopped being cool and became the ultimate act of evil. Likewise, in fiction, a hero might have once looked on with indifference at a whole race of enemies being exterminated, or even have approved, but now the hero would roar at the thought of a villain doing that kind of dark deed, no matter how beneficial it would be for the hero, with a cry of "You're Insane!" and furiously leap in battle to stop the atrocity.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })It was sometimes made Darker and Edgier by introducing the counterpoint trope known as Genocide Dilemma. Other times, genocides committed by the good guys were simply downplayed. The heroes' hands were kept clean by having entire enemy populations Hoist by His Own Petard along with their Evil Overlord (making some evil Self-Destruct Mechanism or whatever responsible for the slaughter of all the mooks). Or perhaps one of the bad guys intervened and pressed the Big Red Button that the heroes refused to press. Of course, at the same time, villains became more likely to solve their problems with a Final Solution. Bonus points for it being passed off to the public as, say, extradition to a "new homeland for X group".
For a plan to count as a Final Solution, it must fulfill three criteria:
It must be the deliberate extermination of (or intent to exterminate) a demographic of one's own species (genocide) or another species of sentient beings (xenocide), regardless of its ultimate success.
It must be done to fix a perceived problem note e.g. typically a belief in moral-spiritual contamination as a result of associating with those to be exterminated, or a belief that a Guilt-Free Extermination War is inevitable and survival depends on striking first; expect the targets to be thought of as vermin and/or a disease that must be cleaned up to make life safe/good/healthy for the exterminators. If not, that's just For the Evulz Omnicidal Maniac and/or stuff.
In the eyes of the exterminators, the existence of said demographic/species is a problem/'question' note languages other than English do not always make a distinction between the two. While there is a grey area where Final Solution and Utopia Justifies the Means can overlap, the former is not in itself a subtrope of the latter.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Reasonably sympathetic characters tempted to solve a problem with a Final Solution usually treat said solution as a very dire Genocide Dilemma; in some stories, they get away with shrugging it off as if it was unproblematic.
Compare this trope with A Million Is a Statistic, Inferred Holocaust, Dehumanization, and Guilt-Free Extermination War.
The Logical Extreme of this trope is the Absolute Xenophobe, who applies the Final Solution to all other races.

The Falcon Cannot Hear: In retaliation for attacks by black militants on KKK-aligned figures, Huey Long's fascist White government set up concentration camps for black Americans in Aberdeen, Mississippi. The sight of people dying of sickness and neglect in these camps is the final straw that convinces Eisenhower to rebel: first by launching an unsuccessful coup, then defecting to the Reds.

In the Guild Wars 2 backstory, skritt and asura both lived in the Depths of Tyria. Because skritt are obsessed with collecting shiny things, they'd often steal key parts of asura creations, and their populations tended to grow incredibly fast. Due to this, the asura deemed them vermin and launched a war of extermination, stopped only when the Destroyers appeared. The skritt survived both the asura and Destroyers, spreading to the surface.

StarCraft: A rare "good" (of the Honor Before Reason variety) example. Being Scary Dogmatic Aliens as they are, this is one of the qualities of the Protoss. They're known of "healing" planets infested by the Zerg by purifying them. This also comes as one of the side plots in StarCraft II, where the player has to decide whether to side with Dr. Ariel Hanson (resulting in the mission "Safe Haven" and Hanson's departure from the Raiders to settle in Haven) or Selendis (resulting in the mission "Haven's Fall" and Hanson being infected by the Zerg cure and being killed later by Raynor) while discussing what's the best course of action in the planet Haven, being the target of a Zerg infestation.
A typical evil version occurs in the backstory for the Terrans. The United Powers League of Earth decided to kill 400,000,000 people who didn't want to go along with their plans for a "perfect" world. 40,000 of these folks were sent off into space, eventually colonizing the Koprulu Sector.
Amon's ultimate goal is to kill everyone who isn't one of his creations. Which translates to 'everyone but (maybe) the Zerg-Protoss Hybrids'. And he mostly succeeded with his own race.

In the Imperial Radch series, after the Garseddai prove a potential threat against the Radch, Anaander Mianaai orders their complete destruction. Part of her is so horrified by this decision that her personality splinters, which is not good when you have many, many clones of yourself throughout the empire.

A number of XMen villains make it their goal to destroy the mutant species out of bigotry or a fear that mutantkind may overthrow humanity. This thinking has led to the creation of the Sentinels, mutant-hunting robots who occasionally decide that best way to deal with mutants is to kill anything with a genetic code.
The storyline "Grey's End" has a Shi'ar Extermination Squad murder every last person who has the "Grey Genome" in a vile attempt to prevent the Phoenix from bonding with another. The only ones to walk away from that are Rachel Summers and Cable (which Rachel notes is odd that they didn't go after him).

In Suikoden V, Gizel attempts to create "a Falena for Falenans" by enacting this against the Beavers and residents of Raftfleet. Queen Arshtat also attempts this on two occasions: before the game's events against the people of Lordlake, and right before her death against the entirety of Falena. In both instances, she's being influenced by the Sun Rune.

Three Houses: The Agarthans (aka “Those Who Slither in the Dark”) have been trying to do this to the Nabateans (aka the “Children of the Goddess”) for ages. A millennia before the start of the game, they nearly succeeded after using Nemesis and his army to destroy the Nabatean city, Zanado, and kill its entire population. However, a handful of Nabateans survived. In the present day, they’ve enlisted Edelgard to finish the job.

Star Trek: Enterprise, the Xindi arc centers on a group of aliens who believe humanity will destroy them, and so, logically, they figure their only option is to Final Solution them first. They managed to kill more than 7 million people during a test run; the completed prototype was to finish the job completely. The Xindi are one of the few villains in Science Fiction who make every effort to ensure the final solution is indeed final. Captain Archer discovers a rogue group of Xindi are preparing a biological weapon to be used on Earth's past as a kind of backup plan should their Kill Sat fail. Additionally, one episode shows that though the Xindi destroy Earth, they actually go after every single colony and outpost, literally chasing humanity down to the ends of the galaxy.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann: The Anti-Spirals consider the eradication of Spirals justified. Their view: Spirals can tap into Spiral Energy, kind of like turning the key on a wind-up toy. The more Spiral Energy is tapped, the more the key is turned... until you overwind. Then all the spiral energy collapses in on itself, taking the entire universe with it in a Big Crunch. So the Anti-Spirals believe that they are trying to save the universe. Why didn't they show up earlier? They only notice you when you get above a certain threshold. Then they get medieval on you.

The Manga/Anime Naruto has the culling of the Uchiha Clan when they tried to pull off a coup d'etat. It was accomplished by one of their own, Itachi, on the commands of Well-Intentioned Extremist Danzo, who considered their destruction to be necessary for the peace of the village. Debatably, he may have had a point; the Uchihas as mentioned were planning to perform a coup. On the other hand, the whole reason the Uchihas were planning a coup in the first place was that they were discriminated against, and forced to live in a separate walled-off part of the village.

The Ishvalan Extermination Campaign in Fullmetal Alchemist. What started out as a relatively normal war soon escalated into a bloody massacre, designed to wipe out the indigenous population of Ishval. While it severely reduced the Ishvalans' numbers, they weren't completely wiped out: small populations survive in the ruins of the ancient city of Xerxes and as refugees throughout Amestris, where they are below second-class citizens but not targeted for death after their leader's surrender. Though for the Big Bad, the genocide was actually a complete success. Wiping out the Ishvalans was incidental to his plans; he just needed a large number of people to die in the precise geographical location of Ishval. Ishvalans or his own soldiers, it made no difference who provided the human souls. The majority of adult characters are veterans of the campaign.

They try this again (well, President Eden, mostly) in Fallout 3, only by giving you the virus to infect the only source of clean water with it. Yes, you have the opportunity to start genocide. If you go through with it and have Broken Steel DLC installed you'll have a chance to witness the consequences of your actions, with people getting sick from the water, and you yourself get stat reduction and eventual death if you drink too much of it.

Attack on Titan has multiple examples of this atrocity being committed.
The breaching of Wall Maria and failed breaching of Wall Rose were deliberate attempts to wipe out the people living within the Walls. Once Eren's powers are discovered, they change their focus to capturing him.
Mikasa's Asian heritage is noted to be unique because no others are known to still exist within the Walls. Kenny states that other races are not subject to the King's Power, so those living inside the Walls were exterminated by the government.
A very thinly-veiled example: Marley has rounded up the Eldians left living outside the Walls, and confines them to ghettos. The rest of the world favors exterminating the last of the "Devil's Children" from the world, but Marley maintains their captive population as military assets. Eren Kruger states that once technology becomes capable of overwhelming the Titans, Marley will have no use for the Eldians and will begin debating the "Eldian Question" again. A Nazi by Any Other Name, indeed.
Also, in more recent chapters of the manga, Zeke and Eren plan to use the power of the Founding Titan to sterilize the Eldian population, effectively resulting in their euthanasia after a generation. Turns out Eren was never willing to go through with the plan and was only using Zeke to further his own purposes.
Eren's plan involves killing everyone outside Paradis, including Eldians. Armin directly refers to it as mass genocide.

In the New Jedi Order series, the Bothans declare ar'kai against the invading Yuuzhan Vong, which calls for every Bothan to fight until the Vong are annihilated (civilians included) or until the Bothans all die trying. The problem is, there is no provision for revoking ar'kai after the enemy surrenders, and thus for at least the next century, Bothan hardliners continue their attempts to hunt down the remaining Yuuzhan Vong.

The 100:
Clarke and Bellamy commit genocide against the people of Mount Weather, not out of prejudice against them, but because a) indiscriminately poisoning their air supply was the only weapon left available to them, and b) the Mountain Men need to harvest lethal quantities of blood and bone marrow from other people to cure their radiation poisoning; not killing the Mountain Men would mean either allowing them to kill a whole lot of other people, or dooming them to slowly die off from radiation sickness.
The Grounders attempt this on the Sky People in the Season 1 finale, and threaten it again in Season 2. They'd be satisfied if the Sky People just went back where they came from, but since the Sky People don't have the resources to return to space, total extermination it is.

Ryan West's The Rise of the Saxons features the heroic Anglo-Saxons attempting to wipe out every last filthy subhuman Celt in Britain, including children. To say that this might be uncomfortable for many readers would be an understatement.

The Anglo/American – Nazi War is an Alternate History where the Germans manage to swing Stalingrad, Stalin liquidates his entire high command for losing his namesake city, and from there, things just keep getting worse and worse for the Russians until eventually they're defeated by 1943. As a result, the Nazi regime has continental Europe all to itself and they're free to put into action a good number of their insane, horrifying long-term plans for Europe, such as the Final Solution and Generalplan Ost. By the war's end with the defeat of the Nazi regime in 1960, 97.5% of the pre-war European Jewish population is liquidated, the survivors number in the low thousands.

In The Dresden Files, Harry Dresden does this to the Red Court by turning their own magic against them. The bloodline curse instantly kills the entire species, everywhere that they exist in the world. Like most heroic versions, seemingly justified, there is no evidence that any of them were anything but totally evil, and by definition, every single one of them was a murderer (they only turn after making their first kill). Of course, given that it was a spur of the moment thing (the ritual to enact the curse had been set up by the Red King to target Harry's bloodline, but by using a different sacrifice, he was able to reverse it to take out the Red King's bloodline instead), he didn't really predict the resulting vacuum of power, nor how it would result in a world verging on Crapsack.
It's a bit more complicated than that: The "blood thirst" that Red Court vampires inflict on humans to turn them into vampires only mutates them into something half-human, half-vampire; only by willingly killing and drinking blood does an infected person complete the transformation. However, even before an infected person does this, he gains a lot of power and longevity... and many such people, including the older members of the Fellowship of Saint Giles, suffered No Ontological Inertia when the vampire part of them was suddenly exterminated. In fact, only the youngest of the infected actually survived, and one of their human allies becomes an antagonist because her understandable bitterness about this, and the fact that her friends and support system vanished overnight and left her on the streets, were exploited by some of the more manipulative villains. From her point of view, his arrogant and thoughtless actions ruined her life and killed dozens of her friends. Dresden, who didn't know what would happen, didn't feel he had any other option and was haunted by it for several books afterwards, is sympathetic, but feels it was Necessarily Evil. And considering what the Red Court were like, the fact that they more or less ran several countries and a lot of very powerful drug cartels in South and Central America, as well as having killed 45,000 people as mere collateral damage in just one attack, you can see his point.

This is the goal of Viridi, the Goddess of Nature, in Kid Icarus: Uprising. By dropping giant forest-sprouting seeds called "Reset Bombs" on every human-populated area, she hopes to wipe out all traces of humanity and restore Earth to its "natural state".

Malthus is the leader of a Lifestream-worshipping cult/street gang/terrorist organization named the Life Demons which seeks to protect the global ecosystem by any means it deems necessary. And true to his name, Malthus believes that the current sapient population is so hopelessly bloated that it will inevitably destroy the planet unless it is dramatically reduced. Which means killing billions of people.note Over the course of the roleplays, Author!Luigifan has explicitly compared Malthus to Ra's Al-ghul, Caleb Goldman, and Lysandre.

The last story mission of version 1.0 of Final Fantasy XIV was that a commander in the Garlean Empire, Nael van Darnus, triggered Operation: Meteor to wipe out the continent of Eorzea. While the Empire was trying to conquer the nation, the Beast Tribes and their godlike Primals proved to be too much of a threat to Nael, and thought it best to wipe out such dangerous creatures and write off Eorzea as a lost cause.

In Ben 10: Alien Force, this is the ultimate goal of the Highbreed Council, with them wanting to "purify" the galaxy by wiping out all of the other races (they believe themselves to be the most "pure" sentient species in the galaxy to the point that their leaders tell everyone that they were the first living beings to come into existence, which Word of God confirms is a complete lie). Initially, they were just bigots but when it was discovered that inbreeding (done to keep their bloodlines pure) was causing the Highbreed species to sink into sterility and extinction, they decided to take out everyone else before they went.
Ultimately Ben and Reinrassic provide a solution; use the Omnitrix and Codon Stream to reconstruct the Highbreed's DNA, restoring diversity to their race. This causes the Highbreed Council to suffer a Heel Realization and step down from their positions as leaders, allowing Reinrassic to end the attempted omnicide.

The Order of the Stick:
Vaarsuvius's partner and children are threatened by a vengeful dragon. Fueled by demonic and devilish magic, Vaarsuvius finds a solution to the problem: Vaarsuvius kills not only this dragon but also any dragon that is in any way related to it — a quarter of the Black Dragon population — to stop the Cycle of Revenge. Vaarsuvius later learns that this included human descendants too and has a Heroic BSoD upon the realization of the extent of the genocide.
While he currently doesn't have the power to carry it out, Redcloak has mentioned this as one of his alternative long-term plans: Exterminate the humans and maybe the Gods, too to make more room for his beloved goblinoids.

In Season 3 of The Last Ship, President Peng — as part of his overall Evil Plan to have China totally dominate post-plague Asia — develops a bioweapon that renders its victims incapable of receiving the cure for the Red Flu, and delivers it to several other countries, including Vietnam and Japan. This results in millions of deaths due to the cure being rendered ineffective; judging by what Peng does in Japan before he is killed, he was then planning on wiping out the affected countries' cultural history as well in order to effectively Unperson entire races.

In Fallout: New Vegas, the player has to deal with several tribes, peoples, and settlements that pose a problem for their chosen faction. In many cases, exterminating them is an option (though obviously not the wisest one).
In the DLC, Elijah plans on using the red cloud from Sierra Madre to wipe out human life on the West Coast. The White Legs are also under orders from Caesar to wipe out the New Canaanites. Finally, there’s Ulysses, who plans to give the wasteland a clean slate by nuking the major civilized nations (the player can help him do this).

Stargate:
In the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Other Side", a race known as the Eurondans beg help in defeating a vicious enemy which started a war that devastated their world and reduced them to hiding underground. It turns out the war was started by their leader's father and that they plan a final solution to get rid of the innocent race they term 'breeders' and hate because they don't practice eugenics.
In the 'verse, genocide seems to be a pretty common option for ...the good guys. Notable victims of almost entire eradication include the Goa'uld, the Replicators (twice), and the Ori. The Goa'uld and Ori were both Always Chaotic Evil in the most literal possible sense, so killing them all really was the only option. The Replicators were more of a mixed bag, but even the more sympathetic and reasonable ones ended up dead. Oddly enough, the only recurring villains they haven't wiped out yet are the Wraith, for whom humans are the only possible food source.

Avatar: The Last Airbender:
The Air Nomads were wiped out in a massive genocide by the Fire Nation, a hundred years before the start of the show. Except they missed the one person they were aiming for.
In "Jet", the title character believes that all Fire Nation people must be wiped out. He robs an innocent old Fire Nation traveller, and later proceeds to flood a village, aiming to kill the Fire Nation soldiers there, along with all the villagers.
The Grand Finale revolves around the attempt to repeat this with the Earth Kingdom.
In The Legend of Korra, the successor series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first season's Big Bad Amon wants to do a non-lethal version of this by removing bending from everyone. It comes across as spiritual rape/mutilation in-series and, given the abundance of Mundane Utility, he would have to start another world war. Not to mention it's unlikely the debending process removes the chance that children of the debended can inherit bending abilities, just making things worse. Amon even calls himself "the solution". Although to be fair, Amon a.k.a. Noatak does believe he's doing good by debending even the Avatar, due to being raised as an unwilling weapon of revenge by his father.

Fallout 4: The player can do this to the people of the Institute during the game’s finale, if they choose not to trigger the evacuation signal before blowing the whole place up. In addition, the Eastern Brotherhood explicitly wants to wipe out all Synths in order to protect biological humans, with its most radical members wishing to exterminate super mutants and even ghouls as well.
In the Far Harbor DLC, the player can resolve the central three-way conflict by wiping out any of the three factions, with hardliners in each calling for you to exterminate the others. You can blow up the Children of Atom in their submarine base, disable the fog condensers protecting Far Harbor from monstrous mutant hordes, and/or incite a race riot that results in the refugees in Acadia being massacred. Thankfully, there’s also some more peaceful solutions.

In The Supergirl Saga story arc during John Byrne's run on the Superman titles in the late 1980s, the three escaped Phantom Zone criminals of the Pocket Universe terrorized its Earth when they were released, and though its Earth no longer had Superboy to protect them, its version of Lex Luthor had built up a resistance force powerful enough to keep the Phantom Zone villains at bay. Ultimately, the villains decided humanity was too much trouble to rule over and thus killed everyone outside Lex Luthor's Smallville citadel by burning away the Earth's atmosphere through destabilizing its core. They were punished for their crimes by the mainstream DC Universe's Superman exposing them to the radiations of Gold and Green Kryptonite, both of which were only effective against Kryptonians of the Pocket Universe due to a difference in radiation emissions.

In the Stargate SG-1 episode "The Other Side", a race known as the Eurondans beg help in defeating a vicious enemy which started a war that devastated their world and reduced them to hiding underground. It turns out the war was started by their leader's father and that they plan a final solution to get rid of the innocent race they term 'breeders' and hate because they don't practice eugenics.

Another Pink Floyd example: "The Fletcher Memorial Home" from The Final Cut has the singer planning one for the "incurable tyrants and kings" and the "colonial wasters of life and limb" by putting them all in one place and then applying "the final solution" on them.

Avatar: The Last Airbender:
The Air Nomads were wiped out in a massive genocide by the Fire Nation, a hundred years before the start of the show. Except they missed the one person they were aiming for.
In "Jet", the title character believes that all Fire Nation people must be wiped out. He robs an innocent old Fire Nation traveller, and later proceeds to flood a village, aiming to kill the Fire Nation soldiers there, along with all the villagers.
The Grand Finale revolves around the attempt to repeat this with the Earth Kingdom.

Played for laughs in Sword Art Online Abridged, where a strategy in the beta testers guide for defeating Ilfang (a strategy heavily implied to have been written by Kirito and started out with using hordes of low-level newbies and anyone who's personally offended the strategist in any way as frontline Cannon Fodder) culminates in something called the "Final Solution", at which point the person reading the guide out loud quickly stops and abandons the whole strategy.

In Batman: Arkham City, Hugo Strange's plan for Arkham City was to make the Final Solution the only solution. This was Emergency Protocol 10, a military countermeasure that bombards Arkham City with missile strikes until everyone — criminal or otherwise — is dead.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine:
The Federation turn out to be hypocritical bastards by the introduction of "Section 31", an organization within Starfleet. Which officially does not exist and doesn't actually answer to anyone. Section 31 specializes in committing crime and passing Moral Event Horizons whenever it benefits The Federation. In the later seasons, an empire known as The Dominion declares war on The Federation because its ruling Changelings are aggressively xenophobic and can't abide disorderly things like democracy. Of course, Section 31 have the solution: engineer a virus to kill all the Changelings. Captain Sisko is outraged by this genocide, which was planted while the conflict was still a cold war. To balance this out, in the Grand Finale, the Cardassians turn on their Dominion allies. What does the Dominion do? Orders their soldiers to carpet bomb the planet, with the goal of exterminating the Cardassian race. Luckily, they are persuaded to stop before this happens, ironically because Odo gives the Female Changeling the cure to Section 31's virus in exchange for ending the war. But not before they've killed over 800 million Cardassians.
In the episode "Waltz", Sisko pushes a mentally deteriorating and hallucinating Gul Dukat to admit that he really was a madman ruling the Bajorans with an iron fist by getting him to admit that he really did want to kill all the Bajorans. In later episodes, Dukat embraces the path of the Pah-Wraiths, demonic counterparts to the Prophets, intending to release them to destroy not only Bajor but the entire Alpha Quadrant.
Prior to the Dominion War, the Tal Shiar and the Obsidian Order (the intelligence agencies of the Romulan Star Empire and the Cardassian Union, respectively) launched a joint fleet through the wormhole to wipe every trace of life from the Changeling homeworld (the Obsidian Order even had to build a fleet of ships, which they were expressly forbidden from doing as part of the balance of power in the Union). They did manage to destroy a decent fraction of the planet's surface, but the entire thing was a trap — the Tal Shiar contingent's leader was a Changeling operative, the Changelings had already relocated to another world — if it was even the right world to begin with — and a massed Dominion force ambushed and destroyed the Tal Shiar/Obsidian Order fleet.

In [PROTOTYPE], the Blacklight virus was originally designed to commit mass genocide, but it somehow developed sentience and decided to wage total war on humanity. The Blackwatch final solution to the virus outbreak is called "Operation: Firebreak", which is essentially nuking whatever location it has infested.

Although Rocket Age is a very idealistic setting, the fact that the game takes place in an alternate 1938 means this crops up a lot. The various Earthling nations and companies are willing to help native peoples in enacting this on their long term enemies and the Nazis will do this personally. At least one example had a surrendering Martian city's entire ruling castes put up against a wall and shot, with the rest of the population sent to 'work camps'.

Halo:
The Covenant attempts to do this to the humans, because the Prophets discovered that the humans were the designated heirs to the Forerunners' legacy, which completely discredits all of the major tenets of the Covenant's religion.
When the Covenant discovered the Hunters, one subspecies that consumed Forerunner metals was exterminated for the damage done to various artifacts on their planet.
After he goes insane, the Ur-Didact intends to do this to humanity, whom he sees as a threat to the rest of the galaxy, by using the Composer to forcibly transform them all into his Promethean Knights.

Steven Universe:
Planetary genocide of organic life on a planet is pretty much standard Homeworld colonization procedure, to the point that Yellow Diamond treats it more as a boring desk job, with Earth as the sole exception because of other factors.
Yellow Diamond wants to shatter the entire Rose Quartz line after one such Rose Quartz from Earth rebelled against Pink Diamond and seemingly shattered her. She also wants the Earth destroyed so that she can finally move on from mourning Pink's death. Making it more tragic is that the rebellious Rose Quartz in question was Pink Diamond, who faked her death in an attempt to get the other Diamonds to leave Earth alone. It backfired. Badly.
On the other side, Bismuth wanted to shatter all the Gem elite on Homeworld in revenge for how they treated the lower-class Gems.

In the Mass Effect universe, the salarians ended an interstellar war with the rachni by enlisting the krogan in exterminating them. Then, when the krogan decided to use the advanced technology that the salarians had given them to wage their own war of conquest, the salarians designed the Genophage, which caused 99.9% of krogan offspring to die during gestation. Whether the latter action constituted genocide is heavily debated in-universe.
Before the Genophage, krogan reproduction was positively explosive. Their home planet was so harsh that a 99.9% fatality rate kept their reproduction in check. Once uplifted to the galactic community and in control of planets much much safer than their home, their rapid reproduction was quite worrying. The Genophage was introduced to keep their 99.9% fatality rate from their homeworld's extreme conditions intact regardless of where they settled. This is why the Genophage is still debated, and not just accepted as a clear-cut genocide.
Every 50,000 years, all advanced civilizations are purged from existence by the Reapers, a race of sapient starships.
Mass Effect: Andromeda, the most recent game in the franchise, gives us the Kett. These guys call their "solution" Exaltation. They have arrived in the Heleus Cluster of the Andromeda galaxy to "exalt" all life there. So, what is exaltation? Those with genetic traits that the Kett find desirable are kidnapped and converted into Kett. Those with undesirable traits are just purged. The Kett cannot biologically reproduce, so this is their solution to that problem. A recently exalted Kett bears absolutely no trace whatsoever of its original species, it doesn't even remember its previous life as a different species. All it knows is that it was once "wretched" before its exaltation. And the worst part? Their inability to reproduce is self-inflicted. Those freaks deliberately chose to turn their entire species into a virus-like plague on the galaxy for reasons unknown.

Fallout:
In Fallout 2, the Enclave decides that the first step in rebuilding post-apocalyptic America is to exterminate all mutated life with an airborne virus so that only "pure" humans remain.
They try this again (well, President Eden, mostly) in Fallout 3, only by giving you the virus to infect the only source of clean water with it. Yes, you have the opportunity to start genocide. If you go through with it and have Broken Steel DLC installed you'll have a chance to witness the consequences of your actions, with people getting sick from the water, and you yourself get stat reduction and eventual death if you drink too much of it.
In Fallout: New Vegas, the player has to deal with several tribes, peoples, and settlements that pose a problem for their chosen faction. In many cases, exterminating them is an option (though obviously not the wisest one).
In the DLC, Elijah plans on using the red cloud from Sierra Madre to wipe out human life on the West Coast. The White Legs are also under orders from Caesar to wipe out the New Canaanites. Finally, there’s Ulysses, who plans to give the wasteland a clean slate by nuking the major civilized nations (the player can help him do this).
Fallout 4: The player can do this to the people of the Institute during the game’s finale, if they choose not to trigger the evacuation signal before blowing the whole place up. In addition, the Eastern Brotherhood explicitly wants to wipe out all Synths in order to protect biological humans, with its most radical members wishing to exterminate super mutants and even ghouls as well.
In the Far Harbor DLC, the player can resolve the central three-way conflict by wiping out any of the three factions, with hardliners in each calling for you to exterminate the others. You can blow up the Children of Atom in their submarine base, disable the fog condensers protecting Far Harbor from monstrous mutant hordes, and/or incite a race riot that results in the refugees in Acadia being massacred. Thankfully, there’s also some more peaceful solutions.

In Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, Muruta Azrael plots to exterminate all of the Coordinators (whom he views as genetic abominations), while his opposite number, Patrick Zala, plans to wipe out all the Naturals (whom he sees as inferior and unevolved). The end result is almost The End of the World as We Know It (which is exactly what Rau Le Creuset, acting as The Man Behind the Man to both of them, wanted). In Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, Lord Djibril again tries to massacre all the Coordinators, while the Coordinators behind the Break The World Incident seek the death of all Naturals.

The Necromongers of The Chronicles of Riddick practice this regularly as part of their crusade to cleanse the universe of all life (minus those who convert to the faith after a successful invasion) by triggering enormous energy waves from the giant spires they land in, destroying everything on the planet's surface. They even call this event the 'Final Protocol'.

Galactic Civilizations: This happened to the Xendar in the backstory: the Drengin secretly convinced them to attack humanity, who at the time were newcomers to FTL travel and didn't have that much of a military. Humanity rapidly militarized and beat the Xendar all the way back to their homeworld... and when they got there, the world was dead, the Xendar wiped out down to the last man. Though it was the Drengin who were responsible for this (they feared retribution if humanity found out they started this), the rest of the galaxy refuses to believe humanity when they say they weren't responsible. The humans, fitting their pragmatic characterization, decided to claim responsibility anyway, in effect saying "This is what will happen to you if you attack us". Fortunately for humanity, the Xendar were not very popular with everyone else, so the other civilizations don't give humanity too much grief over this apparent act of genocide.

The heroes notice that it looks awfully similar to their own portal... but it doesn't actually go anywhere; it's just an incinerator tied to a special effect so that the church can vacuum up assets from the gullible and kill them. The Chief Oracle even describes herding unbelievers into these ovens as "the final solution". Take THAT, Jerry Falwell!

The Elder Scrolls:
In the series' backstory, the Falmer (Snow Elves) once had a civilization in Skyrim and Solstheim to rival even that of the Altmer (High Elves). Unlike many of their Elven cousins, they were able to live peacefully alongside the races of Men for several centuries at least. However, an event known as the "Night of Tears" saw them slaughter and burn the Atmoran/Nord city of Saarthal. (Each side naturally places the blame for the event on the other.) Ysgramor, one of the Atmoran leaders, rallied an army of 500 of the greatest Atmoran warriors and launched an invasion into the Falmer's Skyrim territories. Ysgramor and his Companions, as they would come to be known, very nearly succeeded in driving the Falmer to extinction, save for those who fled to the Dwemer (where they were enslaved and mutated into debased creatures little better than Goblins) and a small population who hid at a single remote chantry.
The Yokudans (ancestors of the modern Redguards) also accomplished this against the Sinistral Mer (Left-Handed Elves) of Yokuda, a now-sunken continent far to the west of Tamriel. They actually accomplished complete extermination of the Sinistral Mer, and have even attempted to Unperson them in the ages since by refusing to speak of them.
The Nedes (human ancestors of the Imperials, Bretons, and Nords by way of interbreeding with the aforementioned Atmorans) attempted this against the Ayleids (Wild Elves) who had enslaved them and subjected them to vile tortures. Led by the "Slave Queen" Alessia and aided by the Nordic Empire, rebel Ayleid lords, and the Aedra themselves, the Nedes brought down the Ayleid Empire. About a century later, a rabidly anti-Elven religious movement rose to power within the Alessian Empire and proceeded to order the surviving Ayleids (who aided Alessia against their brethren) out of Cyrodiil. Those who did not exile themselves were exterminated, and their cultural artifacts were destroyed wherever found. The few survivors intermixed with the Bosmer (Wood Elves) in Valenwood and the Direnni Altmer in High Rock.
The Sload, an Absolute Xenophobe race of "slugmen" native to Thras (an archipelago to the southwest of Tamriel), once attempted this to every other race in Tamriel back in the 1st Era. Unleashing the Thrassian Plague, they successfully wiped out over half of Tamriel's population, believed to be even more than the Oblivion Crisis or Red Year. It's little wonder then that, despite their own various disagreements with each other, one thing most denizens of Tamriel can agree on is that the Sload are unrepentantly evil.

One Piece:
The massacre of Ohara. The only way to silence the scholars of Ohara from revealing the truth of the Void Century was to kill them all. This also extends to every man, woman, and child who lived on the island who wasn't a scholar. Just in case. Or at least, that was Vice Admiral Sakazuki's interpretation of his orders. While some of his comrades were outraged, his superiors found this quite acceptable.
The Reverie Arc indicates that the World Government is planning this again, as the Five Elder Stars ask their superior Im, the mysterious hidden ruler of the World Government, the name of the "light" that needs to be extinguished from history.

Futurama plays this comically straight in "Into the Wild Green Yonder" when Leo Wong wipes out an entire species of leeches (save one) to make way for a parking lot. Nearly averted later in the movie when the reborn encyclopod reluctantly decides to preserve the DNA of its now-extinct archenemy race, the Dark Ones. Zoidberg eats the remains before the encyclopod can do this, however.

White Dark Life
Mysto Majora Kijadhimov, a time-traveling sorceress who is the primary antagonist on Author!Luigifan's half of the roleplays, seeks to utterly obliterate the Abrahamic religions — Christianity, Judaism, and Islam — because she holds the Catholic God responsible for the destruction of the world's pagan beliefs and traditions (including her own). She wishes to reinstate those pagan beliefs and traditions, but believes that if the Catholic God still exists when she does so, He'll just have His followers wipe them out all over again — and she also believes that she can kill the Catholic God by eliminating all of His followers and erasing all mentions of Him from history. She has even gone as far as making 48 Horcruxes to ensure that she'd be around for long enough to see her crusade through to the bitter end. The main thing preventing her from embarking on her genocidal crusade is Anita Belnadesnote if that last name sounds familiar, it should, who both [[SealedEvilInACan trapped her in another dimension for 400 yearsnote Author!Luigifan has identified said dimension as being the Distortion World, and, yes, Giratina reacted exactly how you'd expect — and, yes, for 400 years straight and cast a spell preventing her from committing any acts of magical mass murder that can only be lifted by wiping out all Belnades clan descendants. With the help of her many minionsnote and we do mean many — Mysto is also the leader of a cult named the Slavic Circle, Mysto was able to wipe out most of Anita Belnades' descendants after breaking free from her prison, but 8 of them got away, and have been continual thorns in Mysto's side ever since.
On pommyman's half of the roleplays (and, by extension, the actual webcomic), we have Altair, a Catholic fanatic who spent his life murdering anyone he considered to be a sinner, heretic, or heathen — namely, anyone who wasn't completely on board with his fanatical views. His victims included Mysto's mother, Renee, right in front of Mysto's eyes (with Renee's last act before being struck down being to teleport her children to safety) — this was the direct cause of Mysto's omnicidal hatred of Catholicism. After Altair's death and (baffling) ascension to heaven, he continued to steal the souls of sinners, effectively removing them from the cycle of punishment and redemption (and Unpersoning them in the process) and absorbing their powers. His ultimate goal was to utterly erase Hell itself and all of its inhabitants (and, for those not convinced of the heinousness of this scheme, it should be noted that demons in White Dark Life are not Always Chaotic Evil, plus the destruction of Hell would eliminate the divine system for the redemption of sinners, dooming all present and future sinners to Cessation of Existence). It should be noted that even being confronted by God Himself, rebuked for his actions, and stripped of his status and powers has not dissuaded Altair from his genocidal aspirations and delusions of righteousness.
The Injun-Hunter is a Serial Killer who exclusively focuses on Native Americans, believing them to be a threat to national security. Unlike Mysto, who is misguided, the Injun-Hunter is flat-out stated both in- and out-of-universe to be insane. note Altair is most likely misguided and insane.
Malthus is the leader of a Lifestream-worshipping cult/street gang/terrorist organization named the Life Demons which seeks to protect the global ecosystem by any means it deems necessary. And true to his name, Malthus believes that the current sapient population is so hopelessly bloated that it will inevitably destroy the planet unless it is dramatically reduced. Which means killing billions of people.note Over the course of the roleplays, Author!Luigifan has explicitly compared Malthus to Ra's Al-ghul, Caleb Goldman, and Lysandre.

The Bible has many cases of this:
The Great Flood, in which everyone drowns save Noah, his family and all creatures on the Ark.
Sodom and Gomorrah, destroyed by a rain of burning sulfur as divine punishment. Abraham asks that God spare them if ten righteous ones could be found in the city, but there weren't. Only Lot and his two daughters evacuate safely; his son-in-laws don't believe him, and his wife is turned into a pillar of salt when she turns to look back.
The Israelites, lead by Joshua into Canaan, were commanded by God to exterminate all the tribes they encountered, including the Hittites, the Girgashitesnote some interpreters claim these took the given chance to clear out instead, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, the Hivites, the Midianites, and the Amalekites. However, they weren't entirely successful, and so the Israelites intermingled with the foreign nations and their practices.
The prostitute Rahab, who assisted Israel's spies, and her family were spared during the siege and fall of Jericho.
The Gibeonites deceived the Israelites by telling them that they were from a distant land instead, and had them swear an oath to spare them. Naturally, the Israelites were disgruntled when they learned the truth, and made the Gibeonites subservient to them. However, the Israelites still defended them when other kings marched to war against them.
About 350 years later, God rejected Saul as Israel's king after Saul spared the king of the Amelekites and their livestock.
After David replaces Saul as king, he makes reparations to the Gibeonites who were unjustly treated and murdered by Saul. Seven of Saul's descendants are handed over to the Gibeonites and hangednote The familial variant of this trope is averted, however, as one of Saul's grandsons is explicitly spared.

Caliphate: After Islamic terrorists steal nukes to bomb America, the USA declares war on the Islamic world by nuking it right back, declaring Islam an Illegal Religion and pressuring most of the world to evict their Muslim citizens — only Western Europe rejects it and ends up being turned into a Caliphate with the exception of the UK and Switzerland (who follow America's suit). It's not stated how Israel handles the crisis, but a comment from one character claims they "learned the lesson Himmler and Eichmman tried to teach them as well".

Paper Mario: The Origami King: King Olly hates his creator for scribbling on him (not realizing that said "scribble" was simply a wish for Olly to be a wise king since Olly couldn't read it himself). Since his creator is a Toad, and all Toads look so similar, Olly essentially saw his creator in all Toads. His Evil Plan is to use the 1,000 Cranes wish to wipe out the Toads entirely since that's the only way he thinks he'll truly be rid of his creator.

In Warhammer 40,000, the Imperium have a simple way of dealing with planets of its own population when they are considered tainted beyond recovery: Exterminatus, which basically amounts to ending all life on that planet. Oh, and they are pretty fond of exterminating sentient extraterrestrials as well when they get the chance to do some "purging", and a willingness to coexist with humanity will not save you — at least two cultures exhibiting human/xenos collaboration were exterminated in the Horus Heresy books, as well as countless purely alien cultures. The Imperium's genocidal tendencies are such that, across much of the setting, they are a You Must Be This Tall To Ride sign — if your species isn't capable of surviving both the Imperium and the Orks, it's not going to make it to the tabletop.
This is a major goal of the Orks. Being a race of Blood Knights they seek to fight all they see and eventually kill it, although they do greatly respect enemies who prove difficult or impossible to kill.
The Necrons
Up through 4th Edition. On a larger scale, they employ this trope both to feed their C'tan masters and permanently sever their universe from the warp.
This is no longer the case as of the 5th Edition update of the Necrons, which gave their backstory a complete overhaul. They still do planet sterilization thing, but now it's about taking test subjects and securing the planet. Can't have some pesky bacteria ruin their day when they finally manufacture themselves new squishy bodies.
According to a blurb from the 3rd Edition Eldar codex, this is their plan for us humans if their race ever gets out of the rut they're in. Worth noting that back then, quite a few players got it into their heads that they were the "good guys" of the setting. So much for that. Like most of the factions, they do "Kill all life on the planet" stuff, but mostly disdain it, because mass murders on such scale inevitably boost Chaos and generally generate too much heat.
The Dark Eldar on the other hand don't want to wipe out anyone. They need a reliable source of victims to sate their own and Slaanesh's depraved desires. That and they are so arrogant that they make Craftworld Eldar seem downright humble in comparison and thus don't believe the other races pose enough of a threat to be worth the effort.
Absolute genocide is the presumable goal of the Tyranids, though they may just be biological weapons for another race.
The T'au don't so much want to commit genocide as view it as an ugly but necessary tool. Ideally, at least according to the T'au, alien races would willingly accept membership in the T'au Empire, and peacefully become part of the Greater Good. Unfortunately for them, they don't live in an ideal universe (by anyone's standards save the Orks, anyway). As a result, the Tau policy for any world that proves both impossible to negotiate with and impossible to cost-effectively subjugate is to wipe them out, and with some races — most notably the Orks — they've concluded that negotiation and subjugation are just wasting time on people incapable of even comprehending peace and cut straight to extermination. A non-canon ending for Dawn of War: Dark Crusade had T'au-occupied Kronos's human population, having predominantly gone over to the Imperial forces led by Lucas Alexander, mysteriously develop increasing rates of sterility and slowly die out after the T'au recaptured the planet. It says a lot about the setting that viewing genocide as a last resort is enough to make you the Token Least Bad Character.
The Purge, a small renegade Space Marine faction, uses plague to wipe out planetary populations and hope to one day destroy all life in the galaxy. Their most notable achievement is known as the "Vaxhallian Genocides" and involved the deaths of billions.
The...Well, you get the point. There's a reason why this game gave us the term Grim Dark.

In El Goonish Shive, Pandora apparently wiped out werewolves entirely due to the fact that one killed her husband. Though not stated outright, since she did this without breaking immortal law she presumably didn't kill any herself, but instead empowered and guided countless mortal werewolf hunters. Her son points out that she basically committed genocide against victims of a curse, and made no attempt to find a cure.
More violently, right before she is forcibly reset she uses her vast power coupled with the connection she temporarily had with every other immortal on the planet to launch a mass genocide spell against the Aberrations. Not every aberration was destroyed, Sirleck for example was out of range and thus unaffected, but the vast majority were.

Doctor Who:
The obvious holders of the trope would be the Daleks — Absolute Xenophobes who want nothing but to wipe all life but themselves from the universe. Dalek Caan, the only Dalek to date to pull a Heel–Face Turn without explicit mental meddling of some kind. He snapped after seeing all the horror the Daleks had unleashed across time and space when trapped in the Time Vortex. What did he do? Try and set up a new species of peaceful Daleks? Dedicate himself to a life of peace and helping others? Nope: he tried to obliterate his own species, using the Doctor as a weapon to do it with, and came very close to succeeding.
The Doctor himself has attempted genocide against the Daleks on at least three occasions; it never quite sticks — the first time, he was sent at the behest of the Time Lords to wipe them out before they came to be, but couldn't bring himself to do it. Since then, his hatred of them has been so complete that a) he very rarely offers them his usual one chance, b) at one point one of his more cheerful incarnations actually revels in his status as, to the Daleks, "the Devil himself", c) once he pulled a Mind Meld on a Dalek, "Rusty", to try and get it to perform a Heel–Face Turn by re-introducing it to the beauty of the universe and of life... and instead filled it with a hatred of other Daleks so pure and complete that it spent billions of years slaughtering its own kind.
As a result of this, the Daleks tend to accord him the status of Worthy Opponent, because they find his hatred of them so beautiful — one, the Dalek Emperor, hails him as "the Great Exterminator" (though that could just have been a more or less successful attempt at a Not So Different Breaking Speech), and another, the Dalek Prime Minister, severely creeps out both the Doctor and the audience by musing that the Daleks find the Doctor's hatred of them beautiful... and perhaps that's why they've never been able to kill him: it would be like erasing a work of art.
At the end of the Time War, the Doctor committed genocide on the Time Lords themselves, who had become Omnicidal Maniacs (or at least, the High Council/Rassilon had) — though that had as much to do with ending the Time War, which was tearing the universe apart, as anything else. It turns out that he didn't, instead hiding it in a pocket dimension with the help of all 13 incarnations to date, most particularly 10 and 11. However, since he forgot, thanks to not being able to remember interactions with his future selves, and the method used resulted in a very big bang, he and everyone else assumed he'd destroyed them all. Since then, he keeps wiping out species, after having given them a chance to back down, mostly because he has no choice.
The Time Lords themselves (or rather, the High Council, which mainly meant "Rassilon and everyone else going along with it because they were justly terrified he'd vaporise them if they didn't") try to do this at the end of the Last Great Time War to all of time and space in order to become beings of pure consciousness. Bonus points for calling it the Final Sanction. The Doctor thwarts this and reveals that this, along with the Fall of Arcadia, was why he snapped.
Repeatedly seen with the Ood, a basic slave race that are owned by humans for use as personal servants and laborers. In their debut, the two-parter "The Impossible Planet"/"The Satan Pit", they are laborers for the base on Krop Tor. The Beast possesses them and uses them as his foot soldiers, which attack and kill several of the crew, who decide to implement "Strategy Nine", wherein the humans hide away in the rocket and then open all the airlocks and shoot the Ood out into space.
Seen again in "Planet of the Ood", when the Ood stage an uprising at their breeding facility on the Ood Sphere. The human brass at Ood Operations don't know what's gotten into one particular batch of Ood who have gone rabid, not understanding that it's because they're being influenced by the suppressed subconscious of the Ood brain that binds them all together telepathically reaching out, preparing for the revolution. Not knowing the truth, Halpen orders the head of security, Commander Kess, to have the contaminated batch gassed and written off, as "that's what insurance is for." This never happens, as in the revolution, some of the other Ood break their imprisoned brothers out, and then lock Kess in the cage and leave him to be killed by his own gas.
"The Doctor's Daughter": General Ripper Cobb wants to use the legendary "Source" to wipe out all of the Hath the humans are at war with. It turns out the Source isn't even capable of being used in such a fashion, as it's a terraforming device.
At the end of the spin-off Class, the main characters use an alien WMD to totally exterminate the Shadow Kin and implode their home planet after the Kin attacked Earth for the third time in a year and killed some of their relatives.

Barking Island is about a real incident in which the government of Constantinople, in 1910, took care of a stray dog problem by rounding up 60,000 dogs and dumping them on a small island to die. The whole cartoon is a thinly veiled metaphor for the Armenian Genocide, which happened just a few years later, in which that same Ottoman government killed around a million Armenian Christians.

Blade: Trinity doubles down on them, with the vampires planning on turning all humans into brain-dead, harvestable bloodsacks, and the humans working on a bioweapon designed to wipe out all vampires — the heroes express no angst whatsoever about the genocidal implications of this, despite one of them being a cured and reformed vampire himself.

This is the Cylons' objective towards the humans in both incarnations of Battlestar Galactica. In the RDM version, the humans attempt to do it right back to them when they discover a virus that is lethal to Cylons on an old space probe. They fail due to Helo's actions.

In the Uplift series, the Galactic civilization, despite ostensibly placing great value on sentient life in itself, tolerates and even encourages a great deal of genocide in practice. Sometimes it's correct according to Galactic laws; for example, the Bururalli species were completely destroyed after they somehow devolved, went collectively insane, and started killing everything that moved on their first unsupervised colony world. Other times, it's just a matter of a politically powerful race getting away with destroying any species they happen to dislike, as when the Jophur obliterate the g'Kek because of gambling debts. The Tandu species are Absolute Xenophobes who long to wipe out everybody else. Even with the Tandu and Jophur, the "moderate" political majority makes no attempt to prevent genocide.

In The Legend of Korra, the successor series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first season's Big Bad Amon wants to do a non-lethal version of this by removing bending from everyone. It comes across as spiritual rape/mutilation in-series and, given the abundance of Mundane Utility, he would have to start another world war. Not to mention it's unlikely the debending process removes the chance that children of the debended can inherit bending abilities, just making things worse. Amon even calls himself "the solution". Although to be fair, Amon a.k.a. Noatak does believe he's doing good by debending even the Avatar, due to being raised as an unwilling weapon of revenge by his father.

Three Houses: The Agarthans (aka “Those Who Slither in the Dark”) have been trying to do this to the Nabateans (aka the “Children of the Goddess”) for ages. A millennia before the start of the game, they nearly succeeded after using Nemesis and his army to destroy the Nabatean city, Zanado, and kill its entire population. However, a handful of Nabateans survived. In the present day, they’ve enlisted Edelgard to finish the job.

One of Anders' quests in Dragon Age II involves stopping one of these. A Knight Templar is planning to make all mages Tranquil, removing all their emotions and rendering them immune to Demonic Possession and thus, "safe" to society. It's even called "The Tranquil Solution", just in case you didn't pick up on the comparisons to Nazi Germany (you later find out that even the Templar high command were disgusted by this plan, and repeatedly rejected his proposals).
The Right of Annulment on Circles that are judged beyond the hope of saving can be seen as this in the hands of Well-Intentioned Extremist Templar commanders, such as with the case of the Circle in Kirkwall when Anders blew up the Chantry in Dragon Age II, despite the Knight-Commander knowing that Anders was never a member of that circle.
When you go to the Circle Tower in Origins, you quickly discover that the tower is infested with abominations and that the Templars, quite to their commander's distaste, is just waiting for word from Denerim to initiate the Right of Annulment. You can either save the mages from this fate or save the Templars from waiting for a reply.

GURPS Aliens features one race prone to genocide and one that constantly gets genocided by everyone else.
The former is a mad scientist race who take over planets and experiment on the population, then clean up their mess by killing everyone so there are no witnesses. Quite tidy.
The latter is a sentient virus. It is colonies of the virus that are sentient, so every infected human or animal counts as one intelligent "virus colony individual". In spite of it being sentient, most races treat this species as if it was a normal disease that should be cured. (And no, destroying the virus is not needed for getting possessed people back: the virus is capable of moving to animal hosts and blank clones.)

Revisited in the same author's Lensman series, where this happens more than once. The Overlords of Delgon (explicitly tortured to death by the good guys whenever possible), the Eich, the Ploorans, the Eddorians themselves... at least in the case of the Eddorians (who reproduce by binary fission, with memories/personality carrying over), there's a justification for Always Chaotic Evil, since they're presumably all basically clones. Also, "zwilniks" (basically, drug dealers) and "boskonians" (pirates) are treated as utterly irredeemable; a big deal is made of the one incident in the series in which a pirate crew is not terminated with extreme prejudice, and it's pretty much only the fact that an Unattached Lensman (each of whom is, legally, a law unto himself and explicitly licensed by the government to do whatever the hell he feels like) vouches for them that saves them.

In Star Wars Legacy, Darth Krayt orders the extermination of the Mon Calamari species in retaliation for their senator helping the Galactic Alliance steal a prototype Star Destroyer. He begins with a live broadcast of his Stormtroopers and Sith minions slaughtering the ruling Mon Calamari council, declares that they will slaughter ten percent of the population immediately and that the remainder will be worked to death in labour camps. After Krayt’s “death”, Darth Wyyrlok decides to speed things up via the Final Protocol: an artificial plague so deadly that it wipes out all life on the Mon Calamari homeworld within days.

Elfen Lied: Pretty much every Diclonii in the series has been abused by humans to the point where their biological survival instinct has fused with their psychosis, which insists that humans must be eradicated or they will eradicate Diclonii. Turns out that is absolutely correct. Once knowledge of Diclonii is widespread, all Diclonii babies are killed at birth until human scientists develop a vaccine capable of keeping them from being conceived at all, annihilating the species.

Mass Effect: Andromeda, the most recent game in the franchise, gives us the Kett. These guys call their "solution" Exaltation. They have arrived in the Heleus Cluster of the Andromeda galaxy to "exalt" all life there. So, what is exaltation? Those with genetic traits that the Kett find desirable are kidnapped and converted into Kett. Those with undesirable traits are just purged. The Kett cannot biologically reproduce, so this is their solution to that problem. A recently exalted Kett bears absolutely no trace whatsoever of its original species, it doesn't even remember its previous life as a different species. All it knows is that it was once "wretched" before its exaltation. And the worst part? Their inability to reproduce is self-inflicted. Those freaks deliberately chose to turn their entire species into a virus-like plague on the galaxy for reasons unknown.

Final Fantasy XIII: The Purge at the beginning of the game, meant to "relocate" the residents of Bohdum to Pulse after a Pulse Vestige was discovered to have a Pulse fal'cie within and scared the crap out of everyone on Cocoon. It's just a different word for genocide. Most of the game's conflict stems from the main characters surviving said Purge, the populace of Cocoon being scared to death of their survival and why they're so afraid.

Frieza's genocide of the Saiyans in Dragon Ball Z by blowing up Planet Vegeta, done because he feared one of them surpassing him in power and threatening his hold on the galaxy. Which is ultimately what happened: four Saiyans survived the genocide (eight if movies are counted as canon), he's utterly defeated by one of them, killed by the half-Saiyan offspring of another, and killed again by the one that utterly defeated him before.
Zamasu, believing that all mortals are too evil to live and all the gods are too lazy to do anything, decided that the only way to correct their mistakes was by wiping out all life-forms — god and mortal — until only he remained.

Star Trek: Voyager:
The Borg and "Species 8472" are trying to do this to each other: It's a war, but their goal is to exterminate each other's populations rather than achieving some kind of victory where the enemy's people still exists. The whole thing started with The Borg trying to assimilate 8472, but it had already moved far past that point when Voyager showed up.
The episode "Remember", where B'Elanna Torres realizes that a group of Enarans were responsible for exterminating a group of people called the Regressives through "forced relocation".
There's a Show Within a Show example in "Living Witness", where an evil depiction of Janeway decides to exterminate an alien race by using biological weapons against their planet, killing close to a million people.

Samus in Metroid Fusion crashes the Space station infected with X-Parasites into the parasites homeworld to eliminate all of the ones in the ship as well as the ones left in the planet.
Earlier in Metroid II and its remake, the Federation decided to solve the problem of Metroids being used as biological weapons by sending Samus to their home planet in order to exterminate the entire species. This is what results in the population explosion of X-Parasites because Metroids were originally genetically engineered by the Chozo to be their predator.

Aside from Belisarius having a vision of them doing this to Constantinople if the Byzantine Empire is not prepared, this happens to the Indian city of Ranapur — by official decree, not just the normal shell-shocked troops going crazy after a long siege. The Malwa also order this done to the Maratha; however, they are a Proud Warrior Race and don't take kindly to this.
The Malwa are actually led by a robot sent from the future by Transhuman Aliens who wish to manipulate time for the extermination of every race that is not them.

Towards the end of Witch Hunter Robin, Zizain is revealed to be working towards one of these. He wanted to use Orbo to empower normal humans to hunt witches. Until then, the organization was forced to use witches to hunt other witches, but with the enhanced Orbo, that would no longer be necessary. With the STN's database, he can systematically wipe them out. In his eyes, all witches are afflicted by With Great Power Comes Great Insanity or will be eventually, so he sees himself as justified.

Done twice in Titan A.E.. First the Drej against the humans (which is rightly treated as villainous), then the humans against the Drej — and the latter act is treated as a happy ending.
It is implied somewhere that the reason the Drej wanted to kill all the terrans was exactly because of what the Titan was capable of doing to them.
It's also implied that this trope, and its counterpart, boil down to "If you commit genocide, it's perfectly okay for someone else to wipe you out." Or, "Genocide is okay if it's in self-defense. And kind of accidental."

In Babylon 5, Edgar's anti-psi conspiracy edges into this when it's discovered they've developed a virus that will kill off active telepaths or make them addicted to a cure the conspiracy produces. Edgars himself arguably fails at the third point, as he views it as a piece of Dirty Business beyond compare and constructs himself as Necessarily Evil and trying to save humanity from the Psi Corps. It's a moot point either way, as Psi Corps busts open the conspiracy and kills him.

In Weaver Nine, the PRT has a blanket kill order on every and all members of the Society. Given that very few of them have committed crimes worthy of a death sentence, and the fact quite a few of them are innocents who joined the Society in gratitude after the Society rescued them from slavery, unjust imprisonment, torture, or other terrible fates... it reeks of Genocide.
In addition: Weaver's Society is all but legally a nation unto itself, with infrastructure, territory, and such. Most obvious is when she offers forty citizens to the defense of Brockton Bay, more than half the number of capes the Protectorate could gather.

The Man in the High Castle: This was applied to the Eastern United States after the Germans conquered it. Jews and black people were exterminated, except for those able to escape into the Neutral Zone or the Pacific States. The Japanese also kill Jews they find (apparently to stay friendly with the Nazis, so this is not strictly enforced) although not black people. After the American Reich decides to annex the formerly Japanese-ruled Pacific States, it's shown they plan to do this there as well. Not only to black people or Jews, but also Roma, those of mixed race and Native Americans. Thankfully, it's shown at the end that it won't happen when the new leader calls the invasion off.

In the Strontium Dog arc "The Final Solution," The New Church publicly claims that they're moving the mutant population in Britain to new homes in another dimension where they can live in peace away from normal human beings. What they're really doing, however, is rounding up mutants from their ghettos and dumping them in a dimensional wasteland to be stranded and killed by an Eldritch Abomination, but they know that nobody would make much fuss if they make it sound like a peaceful relocation program.

In the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Survivors", a god-like alien who'd taken human form saw everyone on the colony where he was living killed by hostile aliens called the Husnock, after not using his powers against them because he's a pacifist. After he sees his human wife's dead body, he snaps and kills the Husnock. As he explains to Captain Picard, who mistakenly thinks the alien's sense of guilt is merely over his failure to save his wife, he didn't just kill the crew of the attacking Husnock ship. He killed all 50 billion of them. Picard, who doesn't feel adequate to judging such a powerful being for such an immense crime, decides to leave him with his solitary guilt.
