* In ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', the UNSC's largest corporations, such as Traxus Heavy Industries, AMG Transport Dynamics, [=SinoViet=] Heavy Machinery, and Acheron Security, are very much this, with several having the technology and funds to even equip their private security forces with up-to-date military-grade equipment. In fact, corporations and mega-corporate councils serve as the de facto (or even ''de jure'') government on many colonies, and their power has only grown after the end of the Covenant War, as the UNSC struggles to reestablish its authority. ** In ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', the glassed colony of Meridian is basically a giant mining operation for the Liang-Dortmund Corporation, which is in charge of reterraforming the entire planet and rules it independently of the UNSC.

** ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClankGoingCommando'''s Mega Corp, which controls much of the Bogon Galaxy, and sells highly destructive weapons to anyone with enough coin. Along with anything else. (But don't worry, [[BlatantLies all of their products are tested and 100% safe.]]) ** Along with Gadgetron in the ([[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank Solana]] [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Galaxy]]), Vox Industries in the ([[VideoGame/RatchetDeadlocked Shadow Sector]]), and Grummel Net in the ([[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Polaris]] [[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime Galaxy]]). Slight subversion in that every game has at least ONE Mega Corp, but they're not necessarily the same Mega Corp -- they just control different galaxies / portions of space thereof.

* The ''Literature/NemesisSaga'' has Zoomb. Originally a Google-like Internet search engine company, they now have their hooks in just about everything, enabling them to be able to secretly run programs like the experiments on Nemesis-Prime, and develop military technology beyond that of any nation, with [[NGOSuperpower no one the wiser]]. The end of the third book reveals [[spoiler: that Endo had been secretly buying up controlling interest in the company, and upon his "death" by merging with Nemesis, leaves it to Hudson, putting the company under the nominal control of the FC-P.]]

* [[SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor LexCorp]] from Franchise/TheDCU, which employs roughly a third of the people in Metropolis, runs everything from the supermarket to the daily news, and exists primarily as a tool in its CEO's plan to destroy [[ComicBook/{{Superman}} one single individual]]. At one point its CEO was Lana Lang, who had to explain to Superman that the structure of the company is such she can't ''stop'' it making Kryptonite weapons without laying off a lot of people. She was removed from the position when it turned out all Lexcorp contracts had a standard clause automatically firing people who used Lexcorp resources to help the Kryptonian. Ironically, the CEO who did the most good with [=LexCorp=] was Talia Al Ghul, an [[AntiHero Anti-Heroine]] / AntiVillain at best and the ''loyal'' daughter of an immortal eco-terrorist bent on [[MisanthropeSupreme eradicating humanity]]. Her solution? Sell everything, and leave Lex with nothing (she did it for [[Franchise/{{Batman}} her boyfriend]]). Didn't last very long, though.
