** [=DaoLon=] Wong, the BigBad of Season 3 and Season 2 filler villain, is also one, being sort of an EvilCounterpart to Uncle.
* Venomous Drool, the BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/{{Fangbone}}'', is a parody of those found in Creator/RobertEHoward's stories.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'', being a fairly high-magic setting, has a couple. The Perfect of Paragon isn't that bad a guy in some ways, but he rules using a magical artifact called [[CuteAsABouncingBetty the Staff of Peace and Order]] that lets him have people swear magically backed oaths on it, [[MagicallyBindingContract kill them if they break the oath]], and [[GrandTheftMe hijack their senses and even bodies at will]] (he also has some pretty impressive powers of his own, but the Staff blows them out of the water). Raksi, Queen of Fangs, is a [[EatsBabies baby-eating]] shapeshifter who, despite being more powerful than all but a few hundred other people could ever hope for, is obsessed with the power that will remain forever out of her reach. (Ability to access magic is limited by in-universe character tiers; she's not at the top tier, and so can't get to the best magic.) Both of them rule their chosen city-states with iron fists, although the Perfect's people are generally happier with their government than Raksi's.

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' has a rare subversion with Daiba who is literally a turban wearing yogi, and initially starts off fighting Guts and his [[TrueCompanions party]] under the command of the Evil Emperor Ganishka who he serves as adviser. But after his defeat he [[HeelFaceTurn decides]] to help out Gut's friend Rickert and proves to be highly valuable ally.

* ''Anime/DeltoraQuest''
** Thaegan is a very [[VainSorceress vain]] and evil Sorceress who hates all things beautiful and free (especially birds and people). Though thanks to her powers [[HotWitch she's beautiful]] despite hundreds of years old. Thaegan's redeeming qualities are the fact she's victim of the Shadow Lord and her [[EvilMatriarch genuine care]] for her hell spawn children which was apparent even in the books.
** FillerVillain Oacus is nothing less than a evil mysterious Sorcerer who [[PyroManiac loves watching stuff burn]] and has a creepy fondess for young girls. Like Thaegan he is more just a byproduct of the Shadow Lord's evil, and wasn't born into it.
*** Though it's never stated The Shadow Lord was [[WasOnceAMan a once a human]] sorcerer, similar to the non-cannon Oacus. Until he transcended [[GodOfEvil into pure darkness]] Sauron-style.

** It is also certainly possible for a Tremere or Giovanni in VampireTheMasquerade to be a vampiric version of this trope. The Baali are this by way of demon-worship, and the [[TabletopGame/KindredOfTheEast Devil-Tigers]] can play this trope by way of Asian myths of hungry ghosts if built correctly.

** [[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Mannimarco Mannimarco]], the King of Worms, who appears in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline Online]]''. Cold, cruel, and ruthless, the power Necromancer had been attacking Cyrillic since the Second Era and has been a constant threat to the Mages Guild before being killed in the Third Era. In the book [[http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Mannimarco,_King_of_Worms named after him]] he's described as being the [[OurLichesAreDifferent "world's first of the undying liches"]], which explains how he's been alive since the First Era.

Cold, cruel, and ruthless, the power Necromancer had been attacking Cyrillic reigning terror in Tamriel since the Second Era and has been a constant threat to the Mages Guild before being killed "killed" in the Third Era.

As a result of one of ''Daggerfall'''s MultipleEndings, which were all [[MergingTheBranches canonically merged]], he as a separate being (the [[DeityOfHumanOrigin God of Worms]]), lives on as a divine entity (but is considered distinct from the Mannimarco who is killed in ''Oblivion''.)

* Many, many examples in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series.
** Jagar Tharn from [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena the first game]], being the most cliche example.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', there is a Great House designed to appeal specifically to Evil Sorcerers. [[SubvertedTrope Strangely enough]], not very many of its upper echelon members seem to be outright evil. Most of them do [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain own slaves]], but then again [[ValuesDissonance so do most nobles in Morrowind]].

* TheMaster from ''Series/DoctorWho'' is basically the ScienceFantasy equivalent - the Delgado Master summoned demons, the Simm Master arranged for his own resurrection in a scene straight out of ''Harry Potter'', and the Gomez Mistress created an army of zombie Cybermen driven by the minds / souls of the dead. Contrast with the Doctor, who's been explicitly compared to Merlin or a general "good wizard".
