* ''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.]]

** Though it must be said, Hades was Hercules' uncle as well in the original myths, but it was Hera rather than Hades who was the main antagonist in the story.

* ''ComicBook/{{Arawn}}'': Fenris tries to usurp his nephew Arawn's throne after he's become an EvilOverlord. Of course, since he's already a virtual deity by this point, Fenris' insurrection is squashed pretty quickly.

* Count Dregon was ''Series/MaskedRider'''s uncle. Better yet, [[{{FanonDiscontinuity}} that never happened]].

** Played totally straight by Euron Greyjoy to Theon and Yara. He shows up to seize the throne of the Iron Islands by [[spoiler: killing his brother Balon]] and usurping Yara's right to it, then planning to kill both of them to eliminate a threat to his power.

* How evil they are may [[DependingOnTheWriter depend on the writer]] but the Ghostly Trio in ''WesternAnimation/CasperTheFriendlyGhost'' are both Casper's uncles (and in some continuities [[{{Nephewism}} guardians]]) and always portray as much more meaner than him. Wendy’s witch aunts are the same case with the genders inverted.

** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Seisen no Keifu]]'', Prince Lewyn has ''two'' of these to contend with, Maios and Daccar. ([[spoiler: Though in the Oosawa manga, Daccar is shown to have some HiddenDepths and then goes the RedemptionEqualsDeath way]]). Later on Bloom is this to Tine [[spoiler: and if Tailtiu didn't have kids, to Linda]], though he isn't as cruel to her as [[EvilMatriarch his wife and Tine's Aunt, Hilda]] was. Hilda actually tortured Tini's mother to death and has children gathered up as HumanSacrifices in her free time, lovely woman really. If the player pairs up Lex and Azelle with anyone, Danan and Alvis become Evil Uncles to their children.

[[spoiler: Azura's mother Queen Arete of Nohr and the Avatar's mother Queen Mikoto of Hoshido are actually good persons... who CameBackWrong thanks to the BigBad Anankos. Even more - Arete battles her niece/nephew, her daughter and their troops ''not knowing who they are'' since she's got LaserGuidedAmnesia. Once either of them is defeated (and in Arete's case, she recovers her memories), they die in peace and speaking to their relatives kindly.]]
