* ''Series/WonderWoman2011Pilot'': you have Veronica Cale, who does illegal experiments on trafficked in people and tries to use her connections to politicians to intimidate her rivals. Wonder Woman herself actually averts this. Sure, she's a brutal psychopath who tortures people in hospital beds and murders security guards (and abuses personal connections to get away scot-free -- she ''is'' corrupt, just not in the sense of this trope), but the way she runs her business showcases she's not interested in wealth. In fact, she sabotages herself in terms of money in one scene, ordering a recall of an exploitative doll, she she gave consent to earlier).

* ''Series/{{MANTIS}}'' sees the title character deals with some of these, most notable Solomon Box, a former business partner of his alter ego, Miles Hawkins. Box kicked off the series by bribing someone Hawkins hired to destroy a toxin they'd created to hand the toxin over to Box sell so he could sell it to North Korea. In "To Prey in Darkness", he had the corrupt Police Chief Grant pass one of his agents off as a federal agent to kill M.A.N.T.I.S. and in the "Thou Shall Not Kill"/"Revealation" two-parter, he arraged the death of a city councilman so Grant's task force could be approved and [[spoiler:it was revealed that the shooting at paralyzed Hawkins (and ultimately led to him making the exosuit he'd later use to fight crime) was a botched assassination Box had ordered.]]

* Corporate Commander in ''WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow''.

to:

* ''WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow'' has Corporate Commander Commander, who's basically [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero Cobra Commander]] if he was the CEO of a video game company. He mainly partakes in ''WebVideo/TheAngryJoeShow''.developing overpriced, poorly-made games and locking content behind downloadable content and loot boxes.

* As mentioned above, Joseph Pulitzer in ''{{Newsies}}''. He raises the wholesale price of his newspapers by 10% because he wants more money (and who cares about the starving homeless orphans who have to pay for it?). Later, when his actions have provoked a strike that actually ''costs'' him money, he still won't back down, because giving in to demands from ragged street kids would make him look weak.

Another variation of the CCE is the Robber Baron, a pre-80s, industrial revolution era manifestation that retains all of the CCE's cosmopolitan, far-reaching financial and political power, with perhaps even less governmental or media constraints to consider. Joseph Pulitzer, from the movie ''{{Newsies}}'', is a perfect example of this subtrope. The Robber Baron will have a different wardrobe and jargon than the 80s CCE, as appropriate to his setting, but is otherwise indistinguishable.
