* Crow Harbor from ''VisualNovel/{{Sunrider}}'' was one of the Ryuvian [[GodEmperor Infinite Emperor]]’s three sons, and the only bastard among them. When the Emperor and the crown prince were assassinated (which may or may not have been his doing), Crow went to war against his surviving brother, plunging the entire galaxy into a devastating civil war in order to put himself on the throne.

* [[TallDarkAndSnarky Marcello]] of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' straddles the line between this and HeroicBastard. Born to a philandering rich guy who ''almost'' made him his heir, only to ditch him and his mother after his '''wife''' gave him a son, Marcello ''does'' work tirelessly to claw his way above the stigmata of his social station, and ''does'' manage to make a name for himself… unfortunately, he does so by playing into the [[CorruptChurch corrupt factions of the]] [[SaintlyChurch Church of the Goddess]]. Eventually, he goes sailing over the MoralEventHorizon with eyes wide open by [[spoiler: assassinating the Pope and stealing his station]], robbing him of any sympathy... [[DracoInLeatherPants for most people]].

* [[spoiler: Gremy Toto]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' ''miiiiiiight'' be this. He certainly ''is'' a bastard, but the "''miiiiiiight''" part comes from how it's speculated that [[spoiler: while he claims to be a clone of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gihren Zabi]], he may actually be his bastard son.]]

* Don John from ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'' is also a bastard and a villain, but since he's in a comedy instead of a tragedy, he's less effective--albeit narrowly. If Hero had actually killed herself, he could have been as vile and [[MagnificentBastard magnificently bastardish]] as Iago from ''Othello.''

* A {{Champions}} module features a team of supervillains called [[WesternZodiac the Zodiac]]. Aquarius falls under this trope, being the son of King Henry VI and an unnamed peasant woman (who was later [[BurnTheWitch burned as a witch]]). His goal within the team is, naturally, to become king of England.

* ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy'': Lessa, [[TheProtagonist Tristan]]'s older half-sister, daughter of king Thibault and mixed-blood servant. Even though there is little human blood in her veins (she looks like a troll and is very powerful), legally she is still mixed-blood, which means a life of servitude in another troll household. No wonder she hates her father and would stop at nothing to gain what she perceives as her rightful position. At one point she even [[spoiler: proposes a political alliance and marriage to Tristan - who is already married - and when turned down, tries to kill him]].
