* Archmage Mizzamir from ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'' certainly qualifies. An ageless Elven warlock hiding away in his tower stronghold working to impede and halt the progress of the warriors trying to save the world, watching with distant unseen eyes, having conquered the world and molding it to his image after winning the final battle between Good and Evil a hundred and fifty years ago. The twist is that Mizzamir was actually on the side of ''good,'' and his attempts to mold the world to his wishes involves slowly turning it into a {{Sugarbowl}} where evil-doers have no free will. The group of heroes are actually a band of villains trying to undermine a Virtuous Overlord.

* ''Literature/TheToughGuideToFantasyland'': The Dark Lord, one of whom exists for every Tour trying to destroy everything. However, they can be defeated fairly easily by Tourists near the finale. There are no Dark Ladies, for it seems the Management finds them less sinister.

%%* Gruntilda from 'VideoGame/BanjoKazooie''.
* Nightmare from the ''SoulSeries'' fits this trope perfectly in his appearance in ''Soulcalibur IV'', where he wants to take over Europe by raising an army of [[TheCorruption malfested]], ghosts and monsters. For bonus points, he is mostly a TinTyrant that vaguely resembles Sauron in the pic above.

* Salem from Season 4 of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is the true mastermind behind the Grimm (and all other evil acts). Very little is known about her, besides being the [[GreaterScopeVillain biggest threat around.]] Her "pets" serve as the foot-soldiers for her operations, Qrow hinted that she is connected to an ancient evil, one that helped build Remnant itself.

* An example from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' would be the Founders, a cabal of scientists who use genetically-engineered troops and designer viruses to keep their subjects in line. The Founders, renowned for their xenophobia, were later unmasked as hermits who reside on a featureless, arid border planet. Since the Founders were persecuted throughout history, they made it a rule never to venture from home (unless on a reconnaissance or sabotage mission). When the Klingons managed to locate their planet and destroy it, it turned out that they had vacated without leaving any trace.

** ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'' is built upon this trope: Darklords are the cursed and evil rulers of the Land of Mists, each one of them governing over one particular region. They are powerful forces of darkness with great influence, coming in many diverse forms and shapes (some are proactive leaders of mighty armies and others are subtle schemers who act behind the scenes) and there are ''dozens of them'' for the [[PlayerCharacter PCs]] to fight against ([[{{Ravenloft/Darklords}} seriously, just check their character page and see how long the list is]]). Here is the twist: every single darklord is plagued by a curse that varies from individual to individual to frustrate their greatest desires, as this was intentionally designed by [[GreaterScopeVillain the Dark Powers]] to punish them, making these Evil Overlords all tormented and damned beings that live in [[IronicHell a hell of their own making]].
