* Astrid, the leader of the [[MurderInc Dark Brotherhood]] in ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. She forced the Brotherhood to abandon the tenets that guided them for centuries in favor of her own leadership style and claimed to have authority over the Night Mother, who the Brotherhood believes to be ''the wife of their god''. When the [[PlayerCharacter Last Dragonborn]] is named Listener by the Night Mother, Astrid sees this as a threat to her authority and tries to have them killed (which backfires horribly).

In an age before recorded history, the other Daedric Princes, who feared Jyggalag's growing power, came together and [[IronicHell cursed]] him into [[BecameTheirOwnAntithesis his own antithesis]], Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of [[MadGod Madness]]. The plot of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'''s ''Shivering Isles'' expansion is [[spoiler:Jyggalag finding a way to escape this]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tywin Lannister, of the highest, most unhealthy order, in that he wants to control everything and everyone. Justified in that his father being the complete polar opposite and too laid back (Laughing Lion for a reason) caused House Lannister to be in the mess it was until Tywin restored them to power during his times as Hand of the King at least.

* This is explored with one of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Villains of the Week]] in ''Series/BurnNotice''. Timo is an extremely skilled thief specializing in banks, armored cars and other places with a vault, and he's so secretive with his plans that Michael finds it impossible to disrupt them ahead of time, and winds up with Timo holding a gun to his face more than once during the episode for asking basic questions. On the other hand, when Michael makes the job go bad, all he has to do to make the gang turn on Timo is cause Timo to be late to the gang's rendezvous (thanks to a simple flat tire) and plant an explosive nearby. The explosive could come from anywhere, but the idea that Timo's meticulous plans would somehow go wrong ''and'' that Timo would be late is so unfathomable that the entire crew jumps to the conclusion that Timo must have decided to kill them to keep all the money for himself.

According to Sam, the approach has worked since Timo's suspected of being behind numerous high-end and unsolved heists yet has only been arrested once (and the only witness to said crime was "mysteriously" murdered).
