* Dolf from ''WesternAnimation/AlfredJKwak''. While he may start off as a mere naughty kid and a bit of a bully, as the series progresses Dolf becomes more and more [[CleverCrows devious]] and [[CreepyCrows evil]], to the point where he becomes an [[Expy ''Adolf Hitler Expy'']]. After years of being abroad, Dolf returns to Great Waterland and manages to stage [[TheCoup a coup d'etat]], removing the King from his palace and even amassing an army. After falling from power, he returns again after the King has abdicated and now partakes in the first democratic election. In order to get ahead of the other candidates, he hires foreigners to [[BigDamPlot damage the dam that keeps the land from being flooded]]. He then ''drops out'' of the race, saying he has to help the people and can't waste time on elections. He then publicly funds repairs of the dam, making him immensely popular and boosting his chances at the election once he reenters. The only witness, a jellyfish spy called Lispel, attempts to blackmail him, which promptly [[BlackmailBackfire backfires]] when Dolf attempts to ''shoot him to death'' in order to eliminate any chance of his plans being foiled. Had Lispel not survived the shooting and informed Alfred, Dolf's plan would have succeeded.

** Sideshow Bob, however, is arguably the most obvious MagnificentBastard in Springfield. His schemes are considerably clever, and typically just so happen to get [[RuleOfFunny thwarted by circumstances]]. Examples include: "Krusty Gets Busted", [[spoiler:in which Bob frames Krusty for armed robbery, and takes over Krusty's show. He manages to convince almost everyone of Krusty's guilt, except for Bart and Lisa, who just so happen to uncover the whole scheme [[EurekaMoment when Sideshow Bob says he has big shoes to fill]].]]; "Black Widower", [[spoiler:in which after being released from prison, Sideshow Bob convinces every Simpson except Bart that he has reformed. Bob then marries Selma Bouvier, who has made a lot of money in the stock market, so as to inherit her money. Bob also finds out that Selma tends to smoke after watching MacGyver, and that she has an impaired sense of smell. So he then decides that one day, to get the money, he will get up and leave while she is watching MacGyver, and leave the gas valve open so as to fill the room Selma is in with natural gas, without her noticing, such that when she lights up to smoke her cigarette when the show is over, the ignition will blow up the room she is in, killing her and leaving him with her money. The only reason this does not work is that Bart, who was already distrustful of Bob, also knew these things about Selma and managed to guess what Bob's plan was.]] "Cape Feare", [[spoiler:in which Sideshow Bob manages to convince the parole people that he has reformed. Upon hearing of his release, the Simpson family flees Springfield to a houseboat in Terror Lake, but Bob manages to find their houseboat anyway. While the family is asleep, Bob disconnects the boat from the dock, and ties up all the Simpson family except Bart, including the pets. Then, cornering Bart at the edge of the boat, Bob is going to kill Bart until Bart convinces Bob to [[WickedCultured sing the entire score to H.M.S. Pinafore]] first. By the time Bob is finished singing, the boat arrives in Springfield, where the police are waiting for Bob and have him arrested.]]

* Ed Wuncler Sr. from TheBoondocks is a combination of this and TheChessmaster. This is a fat, rich old man, who would normally not be the least bit threatening but look at all he's done: He opened a restaurant using illegal workers and Robert as his UnwittingPawn, knowing full well the restaurant's food was so addictive it would turn the nearby park into a cesspool of crime, thus lowering the property values so he could buy the land for dirt cheap. He tricked Jazmine, a 10 year old girl who started a lemonade stand, into being partners with him and then made it so that she ended up owing him money and allowed him to sell his own cruelty free lemonade. He had his grandson Ed III and Ed's friend Gin Rummy break into people's houses so they'd buy his security system. He not only had a girl fake a serious injury so Huey would quit the kickball team, thus restoring the curve, but then blackmailed him to play again. Finally, he had Ed and Rummy set up a bomb in one of his buildings, and then calmly reveals when Huey and super agent Jack Flowers foil this plot that it was designed to inspire patriotism, sell merchandise, and make a movie about an obnoxious security guard who would have died in the explosion. And to top it off, when Flowers counts down 3 seconds before he shoots him, Wuncler calls PRESIDENT FUCKING OBAMA to stops him, then calmly tells them to let themselves out. And does all of this just by being crafty, evil and obscenely wealthy. MagnificentBastard indeed.
** Rollo Goodlove, the self-serving liberal activist, manages to come out on top in his first appearance, by hijacking Huey's anti BET campaign to promote himself, and then receive a job from the organization. In his second appearance, he is revealed to partners with Ann Coulter, who plays the part of a conservative nemesis to get "[[OnlyInItForTheMoney redneck money]]".

* ''SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' gives The Kingpin and The Red Skull this treatment. The former is a crimelord who is behind almost every godawful thing that happens in-series, mastermind TheSyndicate and the Insidious Six from the shadows, consistently evading incarceration, and frustrating Spider-Man at every turn. The latter's a Nazi spymaster who has backup plans for every situation, anticipates every contingency, and is only taken out via Captain America's HeroicSacrifice.
