One result of this arrangement is that if the ruler dies while the heir is too young to take over, the old monarch's younger brother (i.e. the new monarch's uncle) would probably become [[EvilRegent the interim de facto ruler]], and would be well positioned to take the crown permanently if [[InheritanceMurder something unfortunate were to happen]].

Everyone has an uncle who they're not allowed to go camping with. For some reason, the brother and occasionally sister of the hero's father or mother has a tendency to be evil. No-one is exactly sure why, given that the two were raised in the same environment and it can't be InTheBlood. Maybe simply because of [[GreenEyedMonster envy]], and because the uncle will [[{{Greed}} stand pretty high in the succession row]].

Can overlap with CoolUncle (see: EvilIsCool), in this case, the uncle himself might be a FreudianExcuse for a character's StartOfDarkness or FaceHeelTurn. He rarely is a CreepyUncle, though, though some measure of overlap with that trope is possible depending on the uncle. Contrast with EvilNephew.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Deconstructed by Stannis and Renly Baratheon, who contest their nephew's claim to the throne. However, Joffrey is TheCaligula and neither the rightful king nor their nephew. Besides it takes more than just wanting to depose him to make them "evil."
