Not to be confused with the DiabolicalMastermind simulation game ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', which has [[VideoGame/EvilGenius its own page]]. Nor [[Literature/EvilGeniusTrilogy the books]] by Catherine Jinks, which involve a SchoolForScheming aimed at creating these.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Even by the high standards of Westeros' top schemers, Tywin is regarded as TheAce. Littlefinger, Varys and Olenna Tyrell all have high respect for his intelligence and ruthlessness. His son Tyrion even allows that "father has a good mind for strategy"

An Evil Genius who is also the BigBad will frequently be TheChessmaster and maybe even a MagnificentBastard. They can also show up as members of {{Quirky Miniboss Squad}}s, but then are usually made significantly less effective by virtue of their quirkiness. They often are also MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate. Some even qualify as FourEyesZeroSoul.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'':
** Redcloak, who also happens to play Team Evil's DragonWithAnAgenda.
** General Tarquin is sort of this to his own team of aging adventurers ([[https://twitter.com/richburlew/status/435651746556149760 nicknamed]] "The Vector Legion"). According to [[WordOfGod Word of the Giant]], the other team members see him as the 'ideas guy', whose GenreSavvy allows him to come up with plans that a group of very powerful evil adventurers [[PragmaticVillainy can all join in on for their mutual benefit without backstabbing each other]]. Tarquin himself thinks this makes him their leader. The others don't, but think he's useful enough not to press the issue. They also have two actual evil geniuses who takes care of all the actual planning and minutiae.

* 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.
