* ''ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse'': Scrooge McDuck, especially in the Italian comics. DependingOnTheWriter, he can be surprisingly nasty. Often ruthless, unscrupulous and uncaring, he routinely threatens, even beats his nephew WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck to do his bidding. He pays below minimum wage (if anything) and is OK with firing thousands of employees just to save a buck.

The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' CharacterAlignment system originally defined characters' moral dispositions only on a [[OrderVersusChaos Law/Chaos]] axis, with Law seen as usually involving moral goodness, and Chaos, evil. Eventually, Good/Evil was introduced as a separate parameter. One reason for this was the slightly odd but not all that rare case of characters who are clearly evil, but nevertheless organised, consistent, rule-abiding, and/or maybe even [[NobleDemon trustworthy and reasonable in their own limited way]] -- in other words, Lawful Evil.

* Charlie Prince in the ''Film/ThreeTenToYuma'' remake is a trigger-happy, murderous bastard, but his loyalty and devotion to his boss Ben Wade are impressive - he goes to almost superhuman lengths to rescue him. [[HoYay With maybe a slight hint of subtext]].

** Lord Roose Bolton also comes across as this alignment, masking sadism with a polite and reasonable persona, and he always acts within the system and is a big believer in PragmaticVillainy, knowing that the best guarantee of being a KarmaHoudini is keeping a low profile. Also pretty Lawful Evil is his claim that his treachery toward the Starks was done [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans for the good of the realm]]. In contrast to his ChaoticEvil son, [[BastardBastard Ramsay]], Roose restrains himself so that his more [[FlayingAlive questionable]] [[DroitDuSeigneur habits]] aren't discovered. Most notably, his philosophy cements him as a Type I.

* {{Satan}} in ''Radio/OldHarrysGame'' his demons to a certain standard of evilness. He's very cruel towards those who aren't evil enough, but [[EvenEvilHasStandards has absolutely no tolerance for those who are]] ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards too]]'' [[EvenEvilHasStandards evil for his liking]]. He's also got a few personal rules that he follows at all times; contrary to popular belief, he doesn't possess people, nor does he ever ''directly'' kill people. However, he's quick to remind anyone who would doubt his evilness because of this that while he may be [[AffablyEvil more affable than most would expect]], he ''is'' still the Devil, and he has no qualms about torturing people or convincing people to kill ''each other''.
