* Brodrig of Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Literature/{{Foundation}} and Empire.'' "The low-born, faithful Brodrig. Faithful because he had to be faithful, since unless he owned the fastest speed-ship in the Galaxy and took to it the day of the Emperor's death, it would be the radiation chamber the day after." Eventually the Emperor comes to distrust Brodrig and execute him.
** Actually, there is no indication that Brodrig's policy was different from that of Cleon - it's quite likely the Emperor used him to play GoodCopBadCop.

* ''Film/AliGIndahouse'': The Prime Minister is actually a laid-back kind of guy who's amenable to Ali's ridiculous ideas on how to make politics "sexy" again, but the villainous Deputy Prime Minister who volunteered Ali in the first place is involved in a real estate corruption scheme.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tywin Lannister deconstructs the trope quite thoroughly. Despite being very much a terrible father and TheUnfettered, he is also extraordinarily competent and committed to doing what he thinks is best for the dynasty he shares with his king.
