* ''Series/FallOfEagles'': OttoVonBismarck (played by Curd Jürgens) in the two episodes "The English Princess" and "The Honest Broker". Given that it's a fairly accurate portrayal of the real life Bismarck, who united Germany into one country and then dominated European politics for twenty years.

*** Then comes the Dalek Emperor in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS27E13ThePartingOfTheWays "The Parting of the Ways"]]. Having survived the Time War, he and the Daleks infiltrated Earth from 199,000 to 200,100, and slowly rebuilt the Dalek race during this period, whilst hiding from humanity and controlling it at the same time. He considers himself to be the god of all Daleks as a result of this, and the Daleks willingly worship himself as such.

* Certain contestants on RealityTV competition programs can be Magnificent Bastards if they win in an impressive manner, or if they didn't win, came very close to doing so. Good examples include Richard Hatch, Brian Heidik, Parvati Shallow and "Boston" Rob Mariano from ''Series/{{Survivor}}'' and Dr. Will Kirby and Dan Gheesling from the American version of BigBrother.

* ''Series/{{Dallas}}'': John Ross Ewing, II aka J.R., is for all intents and purposes a major contender for TropeCodifier. AffablyEvil? Check. DangerouslyGenreSavvy? He ''expects'' people to double-cross him! TheChessmaster? Drives all the other characters to ''frustration'' at [[ManipulativeBastard how well he plays them.]] And even after [[spoiler: his main Enemy, Cliff Barnes, has seemingly taken away all J.R.'s power for good]], our VillainProtagonist proves in the TNT relaunch that he has spent the years between shows planning the perfect revenge...which can best be described as a XanatosGambit plus BatmanGambit ''plus'' a little XanatosSpeedChess [[spoiler: when he learns of his impending death. He arranges his own ''assassination'' to frame Cliff, and thereby reconquer the Ewing empire for J.R.'s son. He brands this ThanatosGambit his "masterpiece"...and frankly, it's pretty hard to disagree.]]

*** [[BigBad Venjix]] becomes one by the end of the series. At first he seems like a typical GenreBlind, OrcusOnHisThrone, EvilOverlord. Following the same basic Power Rangers villain formula of send attack-bot into city, have it fight the rangers, it's destroyed, he makes it grow, they destroy it with the Megazord, rinse and repeat ect. ect. But as the series goes on, he starts to learn from his mistakes and his plans start becoming [[TheChessmaster more elaborate]] and [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy genuinely cunning]]. The crowning moment comes at the end of the series, when it's revealed that [[spoiler: Every plan he made throughout the show was all part of one giant XanatosGambit. If they succeeded, fine. If not, then they served the purpose of distracting the rangers from his ''[[AssimilationPlot real]]'' [[ManchurianAgent plan]].]]

* ''That70sShow'': Parodied humorously when Fez calls Hyde a magnificent bastard. Which leads to the response "Sorry buddy. By the way it's pronounced 'bas-TARD'."

* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', there are a LOT of these characters.
** Petyr Baelish, a.k.a. Littlefinger. The man manages to turn on Eddard Stark successfully and undermine him, then breaks up a marriage alliance between two powerful houses. He tops this all off in Season 4 [[spoiler:by helping Olenna Tyrell plot Joffrey's death, then revealing that he is the reason the War of the Five Kings started - he had Jon Arryn poisoned.]]



* Gabe Duncan, from ''Series/GoodLuckCharlie'', is probably the ultimate example of this trope in all of Disney Channel. What earns him this title is that he is a master of manipulation. One example is when he tricked his father by thinking he won the lottery, so that he could go to an amusement park. Later, he does the same thing with his mother's boss and she quits and gives Amy her job back. Another example of his manipulative skills is when he lied to his teacher that his parents fight whenever he gets in trouble he uses this lie to get out of it. He also brought his parents to play by making them believe that there were some things that each sposue didn't like.

* ''AmericanGothic'': [[AffablyEvil Sheriff]] [[{{Satan}} Lucas Buck]] fulfills this trope again and again throughout the series. Among the worst (or best, depending on your point of view) offenses would be his MindRape of Dr. Crower, beginning with forcing him to [[BreakTheCutie relive his past tragedies]] ([[spoiler:his alcoholism, its destruction of his career, and the terrible accident which cost him the life of his wife and daughter]]), which nearly makes him [[spoiler:fall OffTheWagon again]]. This then continues on to the convoluted GambitRoulette wherein [[spoiler:he convinces Dr. Crower via a woman who claims to be his mother [[CaptainObvious that he is the Devil Incarnate]].]] Armed with this CassandraTruth, Matt morphs into a StalkerWithACrush (only without the crush, [[IncrediblyLamePun unless you take it to mean wanting to crush Buck to death]]), so that in the end he gets dragged away, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation having gone off the deep end]], and [[PutOnABus is last seen]] [[spoiler:locked away in an insane asylum]]. Talk about a DownerEnding...but so ingeniously pulled off.

* ''Arrow'': Malcolm Merlyn aka The Dark Archer is smooth, charming and can outfight Oliver Queen. He was responsible for sabotaging the Queen's Gambit, which led to Oliver fending for himself in a [[TheAlcatraz hellish island]] for 5 years, and then [[UnwittingPawn manipulated his mother by kidnapping her fiancé]] into participating in a conspiracy to [[spoiler: destroy half the city]]. In the end, despite losing to the Arrow, his plans [[YouCantThwartStageOne were partially successful.]]

* ''AshesToAshes'': Jim Keats. Starts out as a nerdy ObstructiveBureaucrat obsessed with rules and regulations, charming his way into CID, and at the end of 3.01, pulls one of the fastest (practically nonverbal) {{Face Heel Turn}}s in history. He continues to gain the trust of the team - particularly Alex - and all seems well until the end of 3.04, where he [[spoiler: cradles the dying Louise in his arms and seemingly acts as an Angel of Death for her.]] He gets a [[IncrediblyLamePun hell]] of a lot darker and more sinister in 3.06, when [[spoiler: he lets Viv die alone and frightened, cheerily whistling as Viv - who has sinned in allowing a gun into a prison and covering it up, thus facilitating a riot - screams in terror.]] It's finally revealed in 3.08 that Keats is [[spoiler: quite possibly [[{{Satan}} the Devil himself]], and when the truth of the world is revealed - that everyone is dead and Gene is supposed to help them move on - [[VillainousBreakdown loses his shit in fairly spectacular fashion.]] He ''breaks the world''. He even manages to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome headbutt Gene]] and proceed to deliver a terrifying NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to him.

** Ramón Salamander in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E4TheEnemyOfTheWorld "The Enemy of the World"]]. A public benefactor for his own ends, he was consolidating power by engineering tectonic disasters. He did so by herding some people into a giant fallout shelter under the pretext of avoiding a war, and telling them the survivors were so warped it would be a mercy to kill them. Also, his supposed arch-nemesis was actually TheDragon (and TheStarscream). When his plans went aft a-gley, he used his resemblance to the Doctor to get into the TARDIS (His cover did not last, of course).

* ''InspectorMorse'': Hugo deVries in the episode "Masonic Mysteries". Basically spends the entire episode ten steps ahead of ''everyone'', jerry-rigs Morse's home stereo to play really awful Opera (''[[UpToEleven LOUDLY]]''), sets Morse's house on fire with Morse inside, frames Morse [[EverythingIsOnline using the Internet]], ''and'' delivers some utterly fantastic [[JustBetweenYouAndMe monologuing]] and {{Deadpan Snarker}}y to boot. The fact that he's being played by LargeHam Supreme [[StarWars Ian McDiarmid]] is really just gravy at this point.
* Series/TheInvisibleMan: Arnaud, one of the two Big Bads manages to get a quicksilver mad and murderous Darien to rescue him in the penultimate appearance from the other Big Bad (who Arnaud had joined in hopes of killing Darien). Then Arnaud manages to escape Agency custody using some C4 he had hidden in his laptop.

* ''Justice'': Luther Graves. In False Confession, he is able to get an alternate theory across easily, completely tears apart the pompous detective and makes him like a total douchebag in front of the entire jury while said detective can only stew in impotent rage, and he's able to convince the jury that a kid is lying without being a jerk (he simply conveys that the kid was telling the DA what she wanted to hear so that he could get out of his tough situation, and that he lied to the mother simply to prevent her feelings from being hurt.) In Crucified he tears up the profiler, and in Prior Conviction, his closing argument is just a beautifully crafted speech. From the same series is Ron Trott. Though Ron is sort of a douchebag, he's got lots of style.

** Kazari. Absolutely no one considered him to be the biggest threat. Then he started talking with Dr Maki. He then managed to trick Eiji and Ankh into stealing a majority of their medals, including one of Ankhs. He also manages to trick Uva and Gamel into going ahead, and then seriously injuring Mezuru and taking all but ''one'' of her medals. For those of you who don't know what this means, its the closest equivalent to ripping out her organs and leaving her with ''barely'' enough to live. [[RunningGag It gets better]]. He then pins it on Eiji to Gamel into order to keep him busy and get a few more Cores (Eiji got a few back as well). And when Mezuru goes to Uva to explain this situation and get help, Uva gets the idea to go after her. [[RuleOfThree It gets better.]] Kazari then loads Gamel so full of Cores that he goes insane and kills himself to heal Mezuru. Mezuru, loaded with Medals of both her and Gamel, as well as two of Uva's thrown in at the last minute then turns into a huge monster so strong that it took Eiji as [=GataKiriBa=] ''and'' [[BigDamnHeroes a Cell Burst from Birth,]] [[DynamicEntry his premire by the way]], to take it out, and Kazari just watches and takes most of the Cores, with Ankh and Uva only able to steal like three. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Magnificent doesn't cover it.]] He then manages to very nearly steal ''all but one of Eiji's medals.'' Granted, Ankh loaded the case with cells and Ankh stole on of his own medals back, but Kazari still managed to regain all but one of his own. That one being of course, Eiji's Tora Medal.

*** [[HeroKiller Vrak]] from Series/PowerRangersMegaforce. Vrak promotes himself to this trope when he returns in Super Megaforce by defying {{So Last Season}}, playing the Rangers like pawns, and doing half his sabotages of the Rangers before they even realize he's back. He even makes the Rangers do his dirty work by placing the last two drills in two of his monsters.
