* ComicBook/LadyDeath in the Avatar Press continuity has fought against these kind of foes such as Sagos and the Death Queen, both of whom had an army of undead and demons at their back and call and ruled over their own portion in [[TheUnderworld the Labyrinth]]. Played with in their cases, since they were both {{omnicidal maniac}}s who sought to destroy all life in the realm, but for different reasons: Sagos wanted to offer all life in the Labyrinth as a sacrifice to dark spirits so he could rule his own dark domain in the afterlife, while the Death Queen just wanted to destroy everything in revenge for [[spoiler:the abuse and torture she endured as Marion at the hands of the demons]].


Added DiffLines:

* Lord Golgotha in ''ComicBook/{{Reborn}}'' is the demonic-looking ruler of the Dark Lands, a section of the afterlife where all the evil and damned are sentenced to upon death. He has designs of conquering the realm of Adystria (where the good and noble are sent) [[spoiler:as well as the living world]].

They usually lurk in an intimidating fortress in a near-uninhabitable landscape, plotting to TakeOverTheWorld (if they [[{{Mordor}} don't already rule it]]), with hordes upon hordes of beastlike warriors (who must be [[OurOrcsAreDifferent none too bright]], otherwise they would've overthrown him) at their beck and call.

There are other, more bureaucratic versions of this character that fall under the "LawfulEvil" heading. What separates an Evil Overlord from those is a near-total absence of politics. No senate recognizes their authority, no Pope elected them, they seldom have need for RoyalBlood or a line of succession. He/She thinks nothing of resorting to [[IControlMyMinionsThrough terror, mind control, or selective breeding]] to corrupt and control their armies. The dark realm exists solely to conquer their neighbors' domains, and military service is non-negotiable. (Are you good with numbers? [[KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect Tough titties.]]) They are, quite simply, a force of evil.

** Lord Vetinari from the same series has all the trappings of an Evil Overlord, except that he happens to be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure who is GenreSavvy enough to know that evil doesn't pay. His only act of public villainy was having all mime artists tortured to death via scorpion pit. That only made him more popular.

** Roose Bolton. Rules a terrifying fortress in the GrimUpNorth? Check. Tortures and abuses his subjects? Check. Is StupidEvil enough to incite rebellions or make enemies of just lords? Uh... [[GenreSavvy no]]. His son Ramsay Bolton on the other hand.....

* Reiji Akaba from ''Anime/YuGiOhArcV'' uses a deck themed after demonic kings. Surprisingly, unlike other rival characters focusing on a single ace monster, Reiji doesn't focus on a single king. His Extra Deck is 100% full of overlords, while his Main Deck has at least three different overlords, which makes a total of 19 different overlords. At the end of the series, three of them can be referred to as "super overlords", being extremely powerful and they are almost invincible when they are together.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'', has Kyros the Overlord. The player character is a Fatebinder who [[VillainProtagonist has risen to high rank in Kyros' armies]]. There may be a trace of WellIntentionedExtremist in the Overlord, however; Kyros is said to have embarked on conquest after surveying various warring factions and deciding that "the world would be better" under a single, draconian, code of law.
