* The [[{{DCAU}} DC Animated Universe]] covers many different generations of heroes, across different decades (even centuries) and facing varied and divergent foes, but none can compare to the ultimate BigBad, whose mere presence is enough to cow raging mobs of bloodthirsty beasts. There is a reason it is '''his''' quotation that is the lead-in to the EvilOverlord page.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'', both Dark Laser and Princess Mandie scheme to conquer the galaxy. Though, in Dark Laser's case, he seems content to [[OmnicidalManiac blow up the Earth]].

* The [[HiveMind Gravemind]] and its [[TheVirus Flood]] forces in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}''. According to its words, the Flood had already conquered galaxi''es''-worth "of flesh and bones" and now were planning on conquering the Milky Way. Despite the courage and highly advanced technology of the Forerunners, the Flood could only be slowed down, until the former made the decision to [[HeroicSacrifice to sacrifice themselves and all non-indexed sentient life in a effort to starve them to death]]. 100,000 years later, the Gravemind (being effectively immortal) is finally reformed but was again defeated, this time by humanity and the Arbiter-affiliated Elites, who [[EnemyMine put aside their differences]] and use [[spoiler:the Ark and the replacement Halo 04 to lure and destroy the Gravemind and all the Flood it could muster before the infection became too big to stop]]. However, given that there are still a lot of Flood in storage on various Forerunner research facilities, and the fact that the Flood are ''extra-galactic'' in origin (hence why none of the before-mentioned samples were simply destroyed), the Gravemind is likely not finished yet.
** [[spoiler:The ending of ''ComicBook/HaloEscalation'' #6 reveals at least one uncontained Flood infection form roaming aboard the abandoned UNSC ''[[VideoGame/HaloWars Spirit of Fire]]'' as it's heading straight into a planet.]]

* ''{{Traveller}}'': Cleon I, founder of the Third Imperium. In something of a subversion, he not only succeeds, but his empire is actually a more-or-less nice one once it is created - whatever one can say of ''[[DirtyBusiness how]]'' he created it. Cleon was a skillful politician, businessman, and diplomat. He knew when to [[ManipulativeBastard entice]], when to [[GunboatDiplomacy bludgeon]], and how to [[TheChessmaster weave together multitudinous plans]], and in general he was a very MagnificentBastard.

** The other "good guys" of 40, the Tau Empire, also have this as a goal. Most of the other races are more interested in some combination of killing, raping, torturing, or just eating everyone. BlackAndGreyMorality indeed.

* The MarvelUniverse's {{Thanos}} of Titan has embodied this trope in the past, with his obsession with ultimate power and Death being his primary motivations. His first appearance had him conqueroring his home planet of Titan with similar plans for Earth. CharacterizationMarchesOn, however, and he is now simply a GeniusBruiser [[OmniDisciplinaryScientist Omni-Disciplinary]] MadScientist whose motivations range from ItAmusedMe to OmnicidalManiac, the latter to impress his girlfriend (or, currently, because she dumped him and he's going to take it out on everyone else).
