This guy doesn't fight via his own power; he has an army of {{Perverse Puppet}}s--that he controls via [[RazorFloss strings]], [[AWizardDidIt magic]], or [[AppliedPhlebotinum advanced technology]]--to do it for him. [[LivingDollCollector Particularly sadistic ones]] can also make PeoplePuppets.

A {{Subtrope}} of TheBeastmaster. Compare PuppeteerParasite. See also MarionetteMotion. [[IThoughtItMeant Do not confuse with]] PuppetFighter: the puppet in that case is a metaphor to describe a certain type of gameplay.

May or may-not overlap with RobotMaster or WickedToymaker.

* ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'': Dave's [[{{Badass}} Bro]] may or may not have been this with his favourite puppet, [[DemonicDummy Lil' Cal]]. On one hand, he was capable of {{flashstep}}ping [[TeleportSpam so fast]] that he could have been making it look like Lil' Cal was [[CrazyAwesome moving of his own accord]], and initially that's what appears to be happening. On the other hand, there's plenty of evidence and testimony throughout the story that Lil' Cal actually is alive and capable of autonomous movement. We simply can't know for certain, [[ParanoiaFuel and that makes it all the more terrifying a thought]]...

* Evangeline from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' makes the list as well, fighting alongside her PerversePuppet Chachazero when her powers aren't sealed. Though as a powerful [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]] mage, this is mainly a secondary ability.
** One of her [[IHaveManyNames several dozen titles]] is "The Puppetmaster", and at the height of her power she could apparently control an entire army's worth of puppets.

* [[SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-237 237]] is an {{Otaku}} version of this, who creates small animate figures (the Foundation refers to them as "homunculi") based on fictional (primarily anime) characters. He is also probably [[TheMole a Chaos Insurgency spy]]. While most of his creations are harmless, the last note implies that he can create something much more dangerous.

* ''FanFic/LupineTree'' has the timberwolves, the most notable of which being the protagonist himself. The timberwolves are trees that drop "transmission seeds," which can magically gather up plant matter and assemble it into the form of a wolf[[note]]or a lycanthrope or a centaur[[/note]] and puppet the construct within a set radius of where they grow. The wolves hunt for prey and use it to fertilize their controlling tree.

* Toybox from ''TopTen''.
* The now obscure ''General Jumbo and his Pocket Army'', appearing in ''TheBeano'' between 1953 to 1974, was another heroic example. Unusually, the forces at his command extended to full air and artillery support as well as a variety of vehicles for several thousand ''Film/SmallSoldiers''-style infantry bots, and a lot of the weapons involved were explicitly capable of inflicting lethal harm.
