* YoureKiddingRight: In the big climax, Basil storms the throne room and tells his security force to take Peter into custody and throw him in the dungeon. Looking around at how they're clearly outnumbered about four to one, the head of the force openly asks "Ah...how do you suggest we do that, sir?" Showing how far gone he is, Basil blames her as not being able to do her job.

* BlackmailBackfire: As Peter's power grows, an increasingly manic Basil has the families of major admirals and general held hostage to force them to obey him. During the final battle, when one of his chief generals refuses to fire on an unarmed enemy vessel, Basil threatens the man's wife. Instead of cowering, the general declares that anyone who's reduced to threatening innocent lives to get ahead is no true ruler and switches sides with many of his fellow officers following suit.

* BecomingTheMask: Peter soon rises up to become a true king leading the people against the various evils of the galaxy. When Basil rants about "he's not even a real king!" one of his underlings muses "Maybe he is. More than we ever knew."

No spoilers above the example line. See Spoiler Policy.
A series of seven SpaceOpera SciFi novels by Creator/KevinJAnderson, set in the Milky Way in TheFuture. The principal players are (initially) the Terran Hanseatic League, governed with an iron fist by its dictatorial chairman, Basil Wenceslas; the Roamers, gypsies/opportunistic explorers [[RecycledINSPACE in space]], [[spoiler: who are initially a small group, but go on to encompass most of humanity, led by King Peter, formerly of the Hansa]]; and the Ildirans, the light-loving, psychically-linked inventors of the faster than light stardrive whose homeworld is illuminated by the titular seven suns. As the first novel unfolds, the Hydrogues, evil diamond-ship-using, gas-giant-dwelling aliens, and the World-Forest (initially just a fairly esoteric means of FTL communication) become major players.

* EldritchAbomination: Hydrogues, faeros, wentals and verdani are borderline examples. The Shana Rei, mentioned in Ildiran legends [[spoiler: and taking a central role in the SequelSeries]] are the genuine article.
