%%* ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' has Stromboli, the Coachman and Monstro the whale.

to:

%%* * In a rarity for a Disney movie, ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'' has a large cast of villains: Honest John and Gideon, Stromboli, the Coachman Coachman, and Monstro the whale. Even rarer for a Disney movie, only the last one gets any sort of comeuppance, and the other villains just quietly fade from the movie once Monstro appears.

* ''Literature/{{Tigana}}'' has one of these owing to the fact that the peninsula in which the novel is set was conquered a generation ago by two rival {{Sorcerous Overlord}}s, [[AntiVillain Brandin of Ygrath]] and [[TheCaligula Alberico of Barbadior]]. This set up ends up being central to the plot; either of them by himself is too much for LaResistance to handle, and if they ''did'' manage to overthrow one it would only hand the entire peninsula to the other. Fortunately for everyone else, they ''hate'' each other, and so exiled prince Alessan decides the best way to solve them problem is to [[EnemyCivilWar manipulate them into fighting it out for good]].

* ''ComicBook/RequiemVampireKnight'': Due to the EvilVersusEvil nature of the conflict, several factions are running for the position of BigBad: {{Dracula}} seemingly serves this role for the entire setting being a ruthless EvilOverlord that rules over a chaotic society, but other candidates include [[GhostPirate Mother Mitra]], leader of the Ghoul pirates; [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen Perfidia]] of [[EvilColonialist Dystopia]] and [[TheConspiracy the Hellfire Club]], an group of vampires headed by [[spoiler:an [[EldritchAbomination Lord of Limbo]]]] conspiring to overthrow Dracula and placing a [[PuppetKing figurehead]] in his place and they are also backed by [[MadScientist the Arch-Hierophant]], who provides the technological firepower. All these factions assisted each other for the common goal of the vampire king's downfall, but every single one has their own agenda to replace him as the dominant power in Résurrection. Even then, despite being surrounded by all sides, Dracula also has wicked plans of his own: [[spoiler:To return to Earth and make his claim of world domination]].
