* In ''VideoGame/AlQadimTheGeniesCurse'', the Caliph and his Vizier have a magical telepathic link, and after the vizier turns down one of your requests, you are approached by a noble named Obdel who tells you that the link actually allows the Vizier to control the Caliph's mind. He sends you on a mission to infiltrate the Vizier's quarters, where a diary can be found to corroborate this. [[spoiler:The diary is actually a (rather clumsy) fake. The Caliph ''is'' being mentally influenced, but it's by Obdel's masters. The Vizier is trying to fight them off, so Obdel is trying to get him out of the way]].

* Ancano, of ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', acts as an "Advisor" to the [=ArchMage=] of the [[WizardingSchool College of Winterhold]], serving as a representative for the Thalmor, a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi-esque]] government of Elven Supremacists. Personality wise, he's a massive SmugSnake, a JerkAss ObstructiveBureaucrat, and is so ObviouslyEvil it's impossible not to notice. The College tolerates him, if only to avoid some massive diplomatic issues, but they suspect that he's only using the post to spy on them. [[spoiler: He eventually goes on a power bender, gets a hold of a very powerful artifact of unknown origin, uses it to amplify his own magical powers, and then stages a hostile takeover of the College, [[OmnicidalManiac threatening to unmake the world just to see if he really can.]]]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh]], and he looks like [[http://images.uesp.net/c/c0/SR-npc-Ancano.jpg this]], in case you needed a visual clue.

* ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} has his own evil chancellor in Ozymandias. Old Ozy was cheated of his throne in Ancient Egypt by an upstart time traveler, and after an attempt at revenge made him an immortal living statue, Apocalypse took him on as an advisor and, frankly, slave. Ozy serves him but usually has an agenda (not that it ever comes to pass).

This trope is the EvilCounterpart of TheGoodChancellor. See also: TheEvilPrince, who is usually also after the throne and rather less willing to remain in the shadows. In fantasy settings, will often overlap with an EvilSorcerer; if his "official" job is to ''be'' the ruler's personal magic-user, then he's also the CourtMage. Aspiring backstabbers may refer to the JustFor
Fun/EvilChancellorList. If the ruler the Evil Chancellor "serves" is ''also'' evil, that's TheStarscream.

* In ''VideoGame/BeyondTheBeyond'', Glade, advisor to the king of Zalagoon, refuses to help the heroes because he suspects the knight Samson is a spy for the Bandore Empire, because despite being FamedInStory for his SuperStrength, Samson was unable to lift a pillar off the ground without screaming in pain due to a strength-sapping {{curse}} placed on him by the Vicious Ones' sorceress, Ramue. With Finn's party barred from entering Zalagoon Castle for a long time, Glade uses their absence to exert his will on the king and sells him out to Bandore, hoping for a peaceful surrender. He almost succeeds until the heroes return to Zalagoon after having the curse broken, proving to the king that their Samson isn't an imposter.
