* Played with in ''Literature/Discworld'' in the form or the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork, Lord Ventinari. Willing to use such tactics as assassinations, blackmail, and vague threats, Ventinari will often self identify as an evil tyrant who can do whatever he wants and only limits himself because it is intelligent to do so. Looking back at his reign, however, seems to say he honestly cares for his fellow man, as a whole if not individually, and tends to only screw over people who would game the system for their own benefit. He's been instrumental in putting people like Moist Von Lipwig, Samuel Vimes, and William DeWorde in positions of power where they can actively interfere with the various evil schemes that start off in the city.

** The BigBad of ''Film/{{Octopussy}}'', [[TheEvilPrince Kamal Khan]] is an exiled Afghan prince living in India, but is in cahoots with [[RenegadeRussian General Orlov]], who wants to [[OmnicidalManiac trigger a nuclear war]] in Western Europe. To finance their EvilPlan, the duo hatch a scheme to generate funds by stealing jewelry from the Kremlin's state armoury and selling them on the black market, while replacing them with fakes. Using Octopussy's circus troupe as a cover, they then plan to smuggle a bomb into a US military base in West Germany and detonate it, hoping that NATO would be disbanded and that this would enable the Warsaw Pact to invade and conquer Western Europe without fear of retaliation. In turn, Kamal Khan, who is getting paid from the sale of the jewelry, hopes to kill Octopussy in the process and take over her organization afterwards.
