* Cell from ''Manga/DragonBall''. In his timeline, he killed [[KidFromTheFuture Trunks]] and travelled to the Android Wars era, the same era where [[TerminatorTwosome Trunks came from an another timeline]]. Although Cell's goal isn't to take over, it's to absorb the androids, who were deactivated in his timeline.

* Inverted in Creator/RobertAHeinlein's "Literature/ByHisBootstraps". The main character is brought from the present to the far future and becomes the world's "diktor" (dictator). Apparently the people from the future have become too soft after encountering EldritchAbominations.

* In TheDCU, the most notable examples are Epoch, the self-proclaimed Lord of Time, who comes from the year 3786 to regularly have his butt handed to him by the {{JLA}}, Chronos the Time Thief, a present-day crook who acquires time travel technology for the same purpose, and the Time Trapper, who is from so far in the future that he is one of these to the Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}, who live in the 30th century.

* Also from TheDCU, the Sheeda, a race from ''very'' far in Earth's future, thrives by plundering earlier civilizations. They succeeded in destroying one now-forgotten [[{{Expy}} predecessor of Camelot]] but failed to destroy the present thanks to the Comicbook/SevenSoldiers.

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Chao Linshen is a subversion: the major antagonist for a huge portion of the story, bringing advanced technology from the future to meet her goal, she seems like this, but with two key differences: a) she doesn't want to conquer the world, just break the ExtraStrengthMasquerade earlier than "scheduled" and thus prevent a tragedy, and b) she's arguably not even a WellIntentionedExtremist, because she specifically ''avoids'' going to moral extremes [[GenreSavvy to avoid becoming one]]: She doesn't lie, and [[TechnicalPacifist doesn't kill]]: her army of robot minions are equipped with [[TheNudifier disarmament beams]].

* In ''SoonIWillBeInvincible'', the minor villain Polgar, mentioned in passing, is a direct ShoutOut to Kang the Conqueror, right down to the hero Blackwolf's erroneous belief that he is actually a future version of VillainProtagonist Dr. Impossible (a reference to the previously held belief that Kang was a future version of Doctor Doom).
