* Admiral Rittenhouse in the Star Trek novel, Dreadnought!. He commissioned the titular warship and named it Star Empire, and if that doesn't tell you where he stood on things, nothing will. His goal was to protect the Federation from its enemies was to overthrow the civilian government and establish a military dictatorship. It was so bad for Starfleet's reputation, that a later novel by the same author used it as a major reason Kirk was more or less forced to accept promotion to Admiral as he was something of a living legend by the end of the five year mission.

*** "The Deadly Years" - With Kirk and the rest of the Enterprise senior staff incapacitated, Commodore Stocker (who wears a red shirt, indicating he's a flag officer from the ''operations'' division) takes command of the ''Enterprise'', despite explicitly having no command experience whatsoever, and orders the ship into the Romulan Neutral Zone, in violation of treaty and against Starfleet regulations. The Romulans immediately attack the ''Enterprise'', to the surprise of nobody but himself, and Sulu, Uhura, and even ''Chekov'' (a greenhorn ensign who's only been on the bridge for half a season) all express exasperation at his complete inability to deal with the situation, indicating that any of them would have done better at the conn than he did.

*** Kirk had already dipped his toe into those waters in ''StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', where after seizing command of the Enterprise from Captain Decker based on fairly dubious reasoning, he ignores Scotty's warnings about the untested warp drive and nearly destroys the ship inside a wormhole. Only after Decker and Bones call him out to his face does he start acting like himself again.

* ''{{Sharpe}}'': This trope tends to turn up in this series, probably the most extreme (although far from unique) example from that series is Sir Henry Simmerson.

* ''Series/TheLastShip'' has Season 1 BigBad [[RenegadeRussian Admiral Konstantin Ruskov]], who has delusions of using the cure for the [[ThePlague Red Flu]] to create a new world order, and has no problem shooting his own men to make a point. He even forces his XO -- his own brother -- to be a guinea pig for the cure at gunpoint, even when there's a good chance it won't work and he'll die.

* You can [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential become one]] in ''VideoGame/KantaiCollection'', farming Isuzu, grab her radar units one you [[FatteningTheVictim raised her enough]] and feed her to other ships over and over again? Checked. Disassembling or feeding on your fleet girls when she's not the one you wanted or got bored of her? Checked. If you are harsh enough, you can tire your ships under enemy fire since your main ship / secretary ship cannot be sunk. And other ships? When they are sunk, they are KilledOfForReal. And don't forget they are [[MoeAnthropomorphism little girls]].
