* In the ''VideoGame/KisekiSeries'', Chancellor Gilliath Osborne of the Erebonian empire is seen as this by other people around Western Zemuria. However at the same time, he's also a WellIntentionedExtremist in that he's fighting for the commoners who have been abused by the corrupt nobles
and become wants to change things with his reformation. The problem however is that his idea to weaken the GoodChancellor.hold of the Noble Alliance is to expand the empire such that other small countries get absorbed into the Erebonian empire, mostly through underhanded means like secretly sending jaegers to destroy cities and villages and the Erebonian army to "save them".

* The French comic book character ''ComicBook/{{Iznogoud}}'' (from the creator of ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'') is a comic exaggeration of this character type. A [[TheNapoleon short]], excitable character who's Grand Vizier to his cousin the Caliph of Baghdad, his sole purpose in life is to try and take the Caliph's place (as outlined in his CatchPhrase "I'll be Caliph instead of the Caliph!"). [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption Naturally, he never succeeds]]. The comics have been adapted into a TV series as well.
** Tantri the Mantri in Tinkle digest, whose main goal is to kill Rajah Hooja and become the Rajah.(based on Iznogoud). Naturally, he always fails, and injures himself. The Rajah is ignorant enough to believe that Tantri is a devoted servant for getting himself into such dire situations.
** Before he became President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy was regularly portrayed as Iznogoud by political cartoonist Jean Plantu, because of his obvious ambition to replace Jacques Chirac as President. Chirac has reportedly hated him ever since the 1995 presidential election, when Sarkozy (up until then a Chirac follower) abruptly decided to back Edouard Balladur for president.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Magic Carpet'', Hoodunnit is the Grand Vizier of India, and plans to gain power once the only heir (Princess Orinjade) is [[VirginSacrifice sacrificed to the rain gods]]. (In a ShoutOut, he mentions his cousin, Iznogoud, and uses the phrase "I want to be Rajah instead of the Rajah".)

* Deputy Chief Judge Martin Sinfield in ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'' is this trope to the current Chief Judge, Dan Francisco. While Francisco is somewhat idealistic and does want to improve conditions for humans and {{mutants}} alike, but at the same time easily manipulated, Sinfield is a cynical bastard who is only interested in his own power, and has used his influence to carry out some deeds of questionable legitimacy.

* In the original ''ComicStrip/BuckRogers'' comic, Oggo was the corrupt prime minister of the [[YellowPeril Mongol Empire]] under the Celestial Mogul. The Mogul was actually a ReasonableAuthorityFigure, but he had allowed Oggo the freedom to run the empire as he wished, while the Mogul puttered about with scientific research, foolishly confident that Oggo was running things justly and fairly.
