* If you're a villain with ComicBook/TheJoker as your mentor in ''VideoGame/DCUniverseOnline'', he'd comment that Brainiac is a Control Freak that "makes Batman look slightly neurotic".

* ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'': This trope is the entire reason Dr. Eggman comes into conflict with Sonic and the Freedom Fighters during the [[VideoGame/SonicUnleashed Shattered World Crisis]]. In a nutshell, ''he'' wants to be the one in charge of when and how Mobius is put back together.



* One could interpret the Warden from ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'' as being this. Despite his {{Psychotic Manchild}} personality and propensity for ridiculous schemes, one should remember that he is still a totalitarian dictator who runs every nook and cranny of his domain with complete disregard for its imprisoned inhabitants. Anyone who disobeys his orders or even question his ideas (I'm looking at you Jared) is either completely ignored, bullied until they comply, or even outright killed if they hinder his "controlled chaos".

Added DiffLines:

* Captain Antares Fairchild in ''Visual/Novel/StarshipPromise'' demonstrates a nigh-obsessive need for control over himself and his surroundings, probably rooted at least in part in his childhood [[spoiler:growing up in poverty in a colony slum]]. His attitude is illustrated in his response when the player character asks him why he keeps fish as pets - one of the reasons he gives is that he has total control over their environment, and can thus protect them. He takes a similar though less immediately obvious attitude toward the protagonist and the crew under his command, and the constant attitude of confidence and control he puts forth inspires a great deal of faith and loyalty from them.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler:Getaway]] from ''ComicBook/TheTransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' proves to be this. On the surface he's a friendly guy willing to do anything for the crew, but scratch that surface and you'll find a possessive and controlling narcissist who's [[TheChosenWannabe deluded himself into thinking he's destined to be Prime]]. He basically expects everyone to unhesitatingly do what he says, believing that everything would be perfect if people would just shut up and listen to him. Getting contradicted, disrespected, or disobeyed in any way sends him on childish temper tantrums; at one point he goes into a psychotic fit of rage because somebody ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor refused to answer his phone call]]''. Eventually, [[spoiler:everybody catches on to the fact that he's a lying nutcase and refuse to follow his orders anymore. Getaway responds by using his nudge gun to brainwash them before they can leave the ship so that they ''have'' to do what he says.]]

On TV, a Control Freak is usually not the big boss; they act the way they do because they're stuck in a professional rut and they want out. Most end up as big fish in small ponds, abusing what little authority they have and hopelessly trying to impress the boss by forcing underlings to fill out all forms in triplicate with identical number-two pencils.

Every Control Freak specializes in endless stories about their past achievements, [[TheNeidermeyer usually involving the military]] and usually bogus. They will brook absolutely no dissent from those below them -- for the Control Freak, it's MyWayOrTheHighway.

* Mr. Herriman from ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' is very strict and proper when it comes to enforcing the rules in Foster's home. The one time he 'does'' become laid back, the house eventually turns into chaos.

* [[Music/DeepPurple Ritchie Blackmore]]. It was bad enough while he was in the band, but Gillan and Lord had enough clout to hold their own. There was no one to keep him in line in Music/{{Rainbow}}, however, and it showed.
