* The Demon Lords and Arch Devils of the Great Wheel cosmology in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (used in most campaign settings of the 2nd Edition and the setting of ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'') each rule over an entire layer of the Abyss and the Nine Hells. Except for Asmodeus, who has granted the other eight hells as fiefs to the other archdevils, and Graz'zt, whose realm of Azzagrat consists not only of one, but three layers, which elevates him to the same level of power as the much more stronger Demogorgon and Orcus.

* Lord Dominion in ''VideoGame/FreedomForce'', a loose pastiche of Galactus and Darkseid. A tad unusual in that the dimension he's lord over is the "normal" universe -- Earth is the ''only'' planet he hasn't conquered yet (he peppered the world with the superpower-causing agent to watch the humans destroy themselves for his amusement).

** GreaterScopeVillain Timemaster is even more so, being a full-on Galactus {{Expy}} who resides in a PlaceBeyondTime realm. In fact, he and Lord Dominion are eventually revealed to have been spending most of the game in an EvilVersusEvil stalemate to see which one ultimately gets this universe.

* Creator/MarvelComics has Dormammu, the immortal and unstoppable god-tyrant of the mystical "Dark Dimension", worshiped as a deity in thousands of other universes, something worse than a demon, older and far more powerful than any elder god, possessor of sufficient might to have defeated cosmic entities such as the Phoenix Force or Eternity in personal combat, able to rewrite entire universes, and creator of kings of hell of the highest order, with the ultimate goal of slaughtering any rival higher powers, assume control of all life and afterlife, and [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans turn both into an inescapable neverending torture camp from birth to death and anything beyond]]. Arch-enemy, and most dangerous foe of Comicbook/DoctorStrange, and the first classic Dimension Lord. Arguably the most genuinely terrifying absolutely evil recurring villain in the Marvel roster. Think Comicbook/{{Darkseid}} taken to a much higher scaled ultimate extreme. Some of his plots stretch billions of years before coming to fruition, but luckily he's usually extremely arrogant and not a particularly inventive schemer. Then again he doesn't need to be, as he is one of the most powerful known {{Eldritch Abomination}}s in existence. His twin sister Umar also fills this role. She is the more dangerous of the two, despite being less powerful, because she is intelligent and very patient -- fortunately she doesn't care about destroying our world as much as her brother does.

** Shuma Gorath is another one of these, as well as a MultiversalConqueror. He's even more powerful than Dormammu! ''Comicbook/TheThanosImperative'' reveals that Shuma Gorath is just one member of an entire pantheon of dimension conquering abominations called the Many-Angled Ones.



** Interestingly Satan is technically not one due to then-recent events in the DCU mandating a triumvirate. Neil Gaiman plays this as an indulgence on Lucifer's part, and later subverts it: [[spoiler:When Lucifer quits and actually shuts Hell down throwing everyone out and leaving Dream the key. He goes on to lord over a nice bar.]] And then [[spoiler:he makes his own universe]] in ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}''. [[spoiler:But he's not very big on the 'ruling' part, basically telling anyone who lives there that his only commandment is that he is ''not'' [[StopWorshippingMe to be worshipped]].]]

** Liberalis, one of the Minor Arcana Alicorns, is a bit different from the others in that her realm isn't in the spirt realm with the others. Rather, as Concept of the Mortal World, mortal reality is her domain.

* While not necessarily villainous, The Elemental Lords from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' are an example of this. Each of them banished to their own PocketDimension of a PocketDimension that they're free to rule over to prevent their in-fighting from causing chaos on Azeroth. In ''Cataclysm'' the two that were villains were actually subservient to the expansion's BigBad Deathwing and BiggerBad [[EldritchAbomination N'Zoth]], most actually follow BlueAndOrangeMorality based on their element.

* King Yemma in ''Franchise/DragonBall'' controls its version of the afterlife: the Other World. And while his actual fighting-power level is very low by the standards of the series, his DomainHolder-style control over the place still allows him to subdue the souls of even PhysicalGod-style villains like Cell and Kid Buu (even reincarnating the latter into a good-guy human). However, in the ''Anime/FusionReborn'' movie, his control is temporarily usurped by RealityWarper Janemba, and since Yemma's not a very capable direct fighter, Goku and co. have to step in and help.

** [[GeniusLoci House]] is the only truly living thing in a "bubble universe" somewhere beyond our own. He's the size of a planet, but can transfer consciousnesses into other bodies, including his own [[spoiler: into the TARDIS]]. Because he's the only thing in his universe, he has to obtain nutrition from ours.
