* Marvel's ''[[{{Marvel 2099}} 2099]]'' titles had the world run by Mega Corps, namely Alchemax. How bad were things, you ask? The person that eventually overthrew their control and ushered in a fairer regime was none other than ''Doctor Doom''.

The person that eventually overthrew their control and ushered in a fairer regime was none other than ''Doctor Doom''. Alchemax eventually appears in the 616-verse as well and is just as nasty in the present day as it is in 2099. Probably because two of its three founders are Tiberius Stone and [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]], both utterly amoral villains with no conscience or empathy.

* ''VideoGame/{{X}}'': There are several in the ''X-Universe'', including the vast economic empires the player can build. [[ProudMerchantRace The Teladi have their entire race organized as one]], and then there's OTAS, [=TerraCorp=], NMMC, Plutarch, Atreus, and the Strong Arms.

In ''VideoGame/XRebirth'', with the shutdown of the PortalNetwork after the previous game Plutarch has become OneNationUnderCopyright over the Albion System, and is one of the villainous factions.

* [=ComStar=] in ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' held an absolute monopoly on interstellar communication and had a sizeable army of its own. They owned the Earth's solar system (admittedly small potatoes compared to the other interstellar empires of the setting) and their company Scrip was the standard currency of intergalactic trade. At least until after the [[ProudWarriorRace Clans]] invaded. In the wake of the invasion, [=ComStar=] ended up splintering into two groups (the other being the Word of Blake), and then following the Word of Blake Jihad, Comstar was left with far less power and influence due to the fact that nobody really trusted them anymore. When the Blackout occurred and almost all the Hyperpulse Generators were knocked offline during the Dark Age, Comstar was reduced to a shadow of its former self since they no longer had a service they could provide and no other assets with which to generate revenue. Unless the Blackout ends soon, they're at very great risk of disappearing entirely.

* In ''ComicBook/DeepGravity'', the Maelstrom Science and Technology Corporation has an exclusive licence to explore the planet Poseidon, supposedly in the name of science but in practice for profit. However, that licence can be put up for tender again if anything goes wrong with their operations... such as the disaster that the comic is about. [[spoiler:It turns out that the event was deliberate sabotage by someone in the pay of a rival company which wanted Maelstrom's monopoly for itself]].

* 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.
