* Uncle Ruckus from ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' is either this or LawfulNeutral depending on what race he's addressing. The senior Ed Wuncler is a straight example.
** Uncle Ruckus is a very unpleasant man, but episodes have went out of there way to show he's far from evil. Obnoxious, but not at all evil.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck'' : DarkWarrior Duck could define this trope - he's a dictator who sentences people to death for jaywalking, arrests people for being out after curfew, and plans to go back in time to alter the history of laws. He makes a strong contrast to Darkwing's other Evil Counterpart, Negaduck, who is Chaotic Evil.

'''Omar:''' [[NotSoDifferent I got the shotgun. You got the briefcase]]. It's all in the game though, right?

** Omar Little, Type II. Robs drug dealers, kills without compunction - but never raised his weapon on anyone who wasn't in the game. He wholeheartedly believes that "A man must have a code." He sees himself as morally equivalent to Maurice Levy, and it's hard to argue against him.

He sees himself as morally equivalent to Maurice Levy, and it's hard to argue against him. In his own words (while being cross-examined by Levy during the trial of Barksdale enforcer Marquis "Bird" Hilton for the murder of state's witness William Gant):
--->'''Levy:''' You are amoral, are you not? You are feeding off the violence and despair of the drug trade. You are stealing from those who are themselves stealing the life blood from our city. You are a parasite who leeches off the culture of drugs...\\
'''Omar:''' [[ShutUpHannibal Just like you, man]].\\
'''Levy:''' Excuse me? What?\\

* ''Literature/TheSilerianTrilogy'': The entire Honored Society, with the exceptions of the water lord Baran and assassin Najdan. They're both nice men, aside from the murder and extortion in their pasts.

* Most ChaoticEvil characters don't constantly break the law, but they cannot see much value in laws (or, for weaker-[=CCE=]s, do not see the value in laws that do not function solely to their depraved objectives). They believe that their own evil impulses are their best guides, and that tying themselves to any given code of conduct would be limiting their own ability to realize their depraved wishes. They do not get along with anyone who tries to instill any kind of order over the ChaoticEvil character, believing these people to be restricting their freedom; ChaoticEvil characters often focus very strongly on their own individual rights and freedoms, and will strongly resist any form of oppression of themselves.

** BiggerBad Kaguya Otsutsuki is another example. The reason she gained power and turned into a villain was to end war. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation As she was a princess, this action may have been less about saving the world and more about self-preservation against enemy forces]]. [[spoiler: When she loses her mind and becomes the Ten Tails, she becomes ChaoticNeutral]]

** The vampire Count de Magpyr from ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' wishes to create a modern, "civilised" and rationalised way of being a vampire, which involves the vampires ruling over others (destroying old magical races they consider old-fashioned) and people lining up politely to have their blood sucked on the arrangement that it's done only so often. On the other hand, the ''old'' Count de Magpyr seems to have represented a nicer kind of Lawful Evil (if evil at all), honourable and traditionalist rather than totalitarian; people actually liked him and his ContractualGenreBlindness, at least in comparison. (Granny Weatherwax isn't remotely impressed with him, which might hint that the villagers are being silly and nostalgic in thinking so highly of him. Even if he did so as a sportsman and with a willingness to be temporarily defeated, presumably he would still prey on people like a non-reformed vampire does.)

His wife the Countess also counts, as she mostly goes along with whatever he says.\\

** The First Order from ''[[Film/TheForceAwakens]]'' continues the trend and increase the Nazi imagery.

* ''TheMist''[='=]s Mrs. Carmody is ''the'' definition of this alignment: being able to justify atrocities by twisting inhumane, cruel and archaic laws to her favor and following them '''to the letter and spirit.'''
