* In ''Literature/ACollegeOfMagics'', one of the obstacles Faris must deal with on the way to inheriting the Duchy of Galazon is a wicked and scheming uncle. It turns out he's not the one sending assassins after her, though, if only because he needs her alive a bit longer until his own plans mature.

* In ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'', [[spoiler:Loki]] is this to Orchis, as it's revealed that he's Orchis' father's brother. He loathes her to the core and wishes to never hear her call him that ever. If the Black Knights's information is to be taken to any hint, it may have to do with him not approving of the marriage of Orchis's parents.

* Kevin's Uncle Frank in ''Film/HomeAlone'' treats him quite poorly, and shows no emotion when his parents leave him behind accidentally. In the sequel, he hasn't changed much, although he does mellow slightly by the end.

In the sequel, he hasn't changed much, although he does mellow slightly by the end. In fact, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the original draft]] for the first movie was going to have Uncle Frank as a straight-up villain, who hired Harry and Marv to knock over the [=McAllister=]s' house in exchange for a cut of the loot.

* There's the obligatory Evil Uncle in ''StrangeBrew'', but that's really just because it's a humorous retelling of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''.

* Subverted in ''{{Series/Blackadder}}'''s first season, which is set in an AlternateHistory where Richard III was a kind and loving uncle who was succeeded by one of the Princes in the Tower, and the EvilUncle and double murder history recorded was the result of a later king going back and falsifying records.

* Coryn from ''Literature/GuardiansOfGaHoole'' was raised by his mother Nyra to believe Soren was this, having killed his father Kludd. But a later vision tells him that the opposite was true: Kludd was trying to kill Soren...only to be killed in return by Twilight.

* Coryn from ''Literature/GuardiansOfGaHoole'' was raised by his mother Nyra to believe Soren was this, having killed his father Kludd. But a later vision tells him that of the opposite was true: inversion of this trope: Kludd was trying to kill Soren...Soren only to be killed in return by Twilight.Twilight. After finding out the truth, Coryn rejects the harsh ideals of his father and accepts the kinder truth about his uncle.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'': Tsunami's uncle Shark is a commander in the [=SeaWing=] army, and he's very grouchy and aggressive. So much so that Tsunami suspects that he might've been the one to kill most of Queen Coral's daughter so that he could get the throne. This is eventually subverted, for despite his aggressive attitude, Shark ends up fighting loyally for the Sea Kingdom when under attack.

** Played straight in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' with Unalaq, Korra's uncle. Not only does he fix the trial to get his brother Tonraq sent to prison for life, but he also [[spoiler:arranged for him to be exiled by paying barbarians to attack the city and hide in the spirit forest, which Tonraq destroyed]]. When Korra finds this out, she [[BrokenPedestal turns against him and calls him out on his jealousy]]. He also trained Korra for his own desires unlike Iroh, who genuinely cared for his nephew Zuko. Not only that, but he appears to be a [[AbusiveParents neglectful father]] to the CreepyTwins Eska and Desna as well, such as leaving an injured Desna on the ground just to try and open the Spirit World portal. [[spoiler:The constrast between Iroh and Unalaq becomes more evident in the episode "A New Spiritual Age", when both appear in diferent moments.]]
