* In ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' Iskaral Pust's competence is the only reason Shadowthrone keeps him around. His results reinforce this decision, if somehting needs to be done, Pust will somehow manage to do it, obstacles notwithstanding. He even manages to become [[spoiler: The Magus of High House Shadow, personally appointed to the task by Shadowthrone himself]], by merit alone.

* Most incarnations of Series/PowerRangers and Series/SuperSentai have one of these among the villains, with responsibilities commonly including mass-producing Mooks and the MonsterOfTheWeek, [[MakeMyMonsterGrow making monsters grow]], and generally being the one who knows the most about the finer points of the magic/technology of the season. In PowerRangers, the first and probably the most iconic among fans was [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Finister]], the series' first monster maker.

* In ''MagicTheGathering'', Yawgmoth is this and the BigBad, but in New Phyrexia, with its five-color theme, Jin-Gitaxis, the blue praetor, takes this role.
* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'' has Fabius Bile, former Apothecary of the Emperor's Children. Unlike most examples, he's very much imposing, being seven feet tall and wearing PowerArmor, makes the TrainingFromHell and surgical procedures to make Chaos SpaceMarines even more restrictive, and has even declared that the four gods of Chaos have nothing left to offer him.

Prone to being BadBoss'd when the [[GambitRoulette ridiculously circuitous plan]] inevitably [[YouHaveFailedMe fails]] or if they are [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness no longer needed and viewed as a liability]]. Whether this leads to a HeelFaceTurn is another matter.

Just like the SmartGuy (his GoodCounterpart), this character is very frequently described as physically unimposing. Within the FiveBadBand, the Evil Genius tends to rank lowest in the likeability department both InUniverse and with the fan base.

* ''Machinima/ArbyNTheChief''
** Brian in Season 5, on account of being an OMN Administrator, though he's [[AntiVillain not really evil]] and he's only an antagonist because he's associated with [[BigBad Trent Donnovich]].
** Justin "[=SniperDeathAngel00=]" in Season 6 plays this more straight, being the creator of the Fragban hacks used by Chaos Theosis and the Underground Hackers.
** Season 7 has Colin Hunt, the inventor of the Fragban 2.0 hacks.
