** The Dominators in "The Dominators" are the Type 4 variant. Their [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is subjugating and enslaving other races out of racism and the desire for their own glorification, but they will follow very strict and rather bureaucratic protocol in order to achieve this, such as obsessively studying natives' physical and intelligence levels before sending them to toil in the mines. Toba, who [[PsychoForHire doesn't care about protocol and just wants to blow everything up]], is considered by Rago to be a contemptible moral deviant.

* Gustavo Fring on ''Series/{{Breaking Bad}}''. Gustavo respects loyalty, discipline, and respect, however will kill a drug dealing child if it gets in his way. Kind of like what Walter White became as he became more evil, Bitch.

** [[AntiVillain Blue Diamond]], as well. Unlike Yellow Diamond, Blue Diamond is fully willing to do “Rose Quartz’s” trial as if it was any other trial, including allowing “her” to make “her” case, complete with a zircon lawyer and everything (even though she’s only doing so to prepare a {{Fate Worse Than Death}} scenario when she’s found guilty).

***In contrast, [[WarGod Khorne]] seems like he would be [[ChaoticEvil Chaotic]] or [[NeutralEvil Neutral Evil]], given that his mantra is "[[MemeticMutation BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD, SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!!!]]" However, closer examination reveals that Khorne is a Type II, commanding his followers to follow a code of honor. Remember, Khorne wants the skulls and blood of combatants. [[BerserkButton Don't even think about presenting him the skulls of, say, innocent children.]] You WILL regret it.

* Literature/MasksOfAygrima: The Autarch and his servants are this, turning Tamita, the capital city, into a borderline police state and installing watchers in all other towns to keep order. The masks everybody wears are used to squash all thoughts of rebellion by showing watchers those thoughts. [[spoiler: The masks are later altered to change people's personalities to stop all possibilities of revolution everywhere.]]

* U.N. Owen, the PoeticSerialKiller villain of ''Literature/AndThenThereWereNone''. He, by his own admission, is something of a sadist, and takes absolute pleasure in causing pain and death, but while retaining his justice-driven nature, primarily dishes it out to [[PayEvilUntoEvil people who really deserve it]].

Some of his intended victims fit this alignment too, like PrinciplesZealot Emily Brent and HangingJudge Wargrave ([[spoiler: the latter, however, never sentenced an innocent to death and is in fact U.N. Owen]]).






* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has the highly organized and deadly plane of Phyrexia and its lord Yawgmoth.
** The few White and Blue villains fall tend into this. Elesh Norn of ''New'' Phyrexia is a fairly extreme example. She runs a ReligionOfEvil that tortures people into the faith in the name of order and structure. Some offshoots of the religion actually believe that the only way to achieve true order is to physically become one by stitching people together.

** After being [[BodyHorror compleated]] by the Preators, [[FallenAngel Atraxa]] now fulfills the role of MouthOfSauron for New Phyrexia.

* While technically their isn't a villain in ''Film/MaryPoppins'', Mr Dawes Sr comes closest to one. As the elderly boss of a successful bank, Mr Dawes Sr and his many colleagues (one of which is his own son), have high regards for investment. Dawes Sr badgered Michael about the importance of money, ultimately swindling the poor boy and ending up firing George Banks for his sons unruly behaviour. Ironically when Dawes Sr dies of laughter, his colleagues appear again during the end, except a lot more relieved.

* As pointed out in ''WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment'' 's ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' overview, one of the most insidious things about evil is that it can take something like rules for living well and twist them into something unrecognizable. ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'' had ''no'' BigBad, just a mission for you to learn a bunch of virtues to be the embodiment of good. In ''VideoGame/UltimaV'', those same virtues are being enforced by law; crushing, ''stringent'' law which slowly but surely turns the world into a hellhole for the average citizen, all in the name of goodness.
