* In ''Film/ReturnToOz'', the [[BigBad Nome King]] starts out looking similar to other [[RockMonster Nomes]] -- that is, a creepy moving face on a rock surface. But true to form, as the heroes fail to pass his test one by one, he grows in power -- and becomes [[BishonenLine gradually more humanoid]] in the process. However, his OneWingedAngel form in the climax is a mass of rock that looks even more monstrous than before.

* There's a {{Shinigami}} King in ''Manga/DeathNote''.

to:

* There's a {{Shinigami}} King in ''Manga/DeathNote''. Not much is known about him other than he created the Death Notes and has power that far surpasses all other Shinigami, such that they are absolutely unwilling to disobey one of his rules (the punishment for doing so is generally instantaneous death, without the King needing to actually be physically present).

* Kindred in ''[[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Vampire: The Requiem]]'' grow stronger with age and experience, represented by the power stat Blood Potency. Truly powerful vampires (Blood Potency 6) can only feed on humans [[note]](and not long after, other vampires)[[/note]] and can create bloodlines which they can bestow on all their progeny and even supplicant vampires. Basically, a bloodline is a second "clan" that gives all vampires in the bloodline a fourth in clan discipline, which is often unique and ''very'' powerful compared to the core ten. Of course, [[PowerAtAPrice they also develop]] a second {{curse}}.

* ''MagicTheGathering'' has this in the Zendikar Block. Only the most powerful vampires can convert people into true vampires by draining their blood, but lesser vampires can create zombies (called nulls) by draining the blood completely from a target. This power doesn't come up much in the game, but it is there in the fluff. The picture for this page features a vampire and some follower nulls.

* The villains of MercedesLackey's ''[[Literature/TheObsidianTrilogy Obsidian Trilogy]]'' are the Endarkened, who draw inspiration from classical depictions of demons and devils, with such features at bat wings and red skin. The servants of their world are Lesser Endarkened, who are uglier and lack wings, but have fur and cloven feet.

** ''[[VideogGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind]]'' has Dremora Lords as a high-level enemy. They have almost twice as much health as a regular Dremora, do a bit more damage, have a stronger magical barrier, and almost always come with a Deadric or Ebony weapon (compared to regular Dremoras, who are more likely to have Dwemer or Dreugh weapons.) And from a distance, [[BossInMooksClothing they look exactly the same]].

* Daedra from ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series play the trope straight. There is a clear heirarchy with unintelligent beasts at the bottom, various human-animal hybrids like Daedroth, Spider Daedra, and Winged Twilights in the middle, and the intelligent, humanoid Dremora/Daedra Lords at the top.

Supertrope of InsectQueen and VampireMonarch. For the mechanical equivalent, see MechanicalMonster for examples.

Contrast TheManBehindTheMonsters. See also the MonsterProgenitor, who is usually the top Monster Lord of its kind.
