* In ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' there's one of these. [[spoiler: The Holy Grail itself. It will interpret every wish as a desire for destruction. One of the examples given is that a wish to be the wealthiest man in the world would kill everyone richer than you.]]

It Since it has been corrupted by an evil force, it will interpret every wish as a desire for destruction. One of the examples given is that a wish to be the wealthiest man in the world would kill everyone richer than you. Another is when a character wished for world peace, the Grail stated its intention to grant that wish by killing everyone on the planet except for him and his daughter (can't have conflict if ''everyone'' is dead).]]

:: She can also do this even when the wishes aren't that stupid. A man who lived in a trailer park wished for a yacht... which she put ''in'' the trailer park claiming he didn't ask for it to be in water. Mulder even comments on this, and suggests maybe it isn't that people always make stupid wishes as much as she's just a bitch.

* A ''ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse'' story had Mickey encounter what appeared to be a BenevolentGenie that permitted him to wish for infinite wishes and stuck around to advice him. It seed to end up a big lesson in BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: wishing for everyone in the world to be nice ended up with them cowed to obedience, wishing for adventures turned out to be boring because there was no challenge when you [[RealityWarper could decide exactly what would happen]], etc. Then it turned out that the genie was not so much a GenieInABottle as a SealedEvilInACan that was poised to TakeOverTheWorld at will now that he was released (what with being TheOmnipotent and all), but also liked to grant mortals wishes and make them go wrong.

** One of the few villains to make two non-consecutive appearances was one of these. Normally resembling a beautiful woman, the Djinn's true form was a demon and it rivaled the Djinn from ''Wishmaster'' in its ability to screw people over. For example, when the crook who accidentally released it wished to be "the worlds' most infamous thief" the Djinn turned him into a HalfHumanHybrid, reasoning that no-one could ''ever forget'' a burglar who looked like a rat monster.

Worse still, she could ''force'' people to speak their heart's desire, allowing her to torment even the people who knew better than to deal with her. Unfortunately for her, however, when the time came to force ''Martin's'' wish out of him, the words that came out of his mouth were "I wish I knew how to save my friends", a wish that was either too selfless or too simple to corrupt.

** The Ideal Masters are immortal beings who [[WasOnceAMan were once powerful mortal sorcerers]] during the Merethic Era. After finding their mortal forms to be too weak and limiting, they entered Oblivion as [[EnergyBeing beings of pure energy]] and settled an area of "chaotic creatia", forming the [[SpiritWorld Soul Cairn]]. The Ideal Masters are most infamous for their [[YourSoulIsMine trafficking in souls]], especially "Black" sapient souls. All souls trapped in soul gems end up in the Soul Cairn and are considered property of the Ideal Masters. Individuals seeking power, especially mortal {{necromancer}}s, have long contacted the Ideal Masters. The Ideal Masters grant it in exchange for souls, which often includes the soul of the necromancer themselves. (Though the necromancer may not be aware of this fact as the Ideal Masters are {{Manipulative Bastard}}s who often get what they want through ExactWords and YouDidntAsk.)

In ''Skyrim'''s ''Dawnguard'' DLC, you encounter Durnehviir, a {{Dracolich}} the Ideal Masters ensnared within the Soul Cairn. In exchange for power, he agreed to guard Valerica for the Masters "until she dies". However, Valerica is a vampire, and thus, TheAgeless, essentially binding Durnehviir to their service for eternity.
