* In ''VideoGame/RodeaTheSkySoldier'', [[spoiler: Gearado's dragon manages to open a rift in space/time linking Garuda to Gearado's empire at the hight of the empire's power.]] Gearado, instead of taking advantage of this, waits for Rodea and Ion to come through time and make their way to his throne room, all the while taunting Rodea to do [[YouCantFightFate Something unpredictable]].

** [[GodOfEvil The Chaos Gods]], when they aren't stuck in their literally eternal EnemyCivilWar, rely on their [[TheHeartless daemons]] and mortal followers to cause havoc in the Materium. In their case they're just '''so''' powerful that they physically can't manifest in or influence the Materium in any way. Their ultimate goal is to permanently merge the Materium and Immaterium, which would give them free reign over everything.

* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Emperor Palpatine in the Original Trilogy (not so in the prequel trilogy, where he's TheChessmaster playing both sides for his own benefit). But then, [[DystopiaIsHard he's got an Empire to micromanage]] [[TheChessmaster and plots to set in motion]]; he has [[TheDragon Darth Vader]] to do the in-person chasing after of Rebels.

** Supreme Leader Snoke fills Palpatine's position within the First Order in the sequel trilogy. In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', he's only seen communicating through holograms with his subordinates, Kylo Ren and General Hux. When he appears in person in ''Film/TheLastJedi'', he doesn't even need to stand up from his throne, thanks to his mastery of the Force. [[spoiler:In fact, he only leaves his throne when [[KlingonPromotion Kylo Ren makes him vacate it by slicing him in half]].]]

* Literature/{{Malazan Book of the Fallen}}: [[spoiler:Justified and subverted by the Emperor Kellanved (depending on whether you consider Kellanved 'evil' or not). He 'occupies' the First Throne but rarely uses its abilities; this is remarked upon by several characters in-story (all of whom are baffled by this approach). Whoever sits on the First Throne is given complete dominion over the T'Lan Imass: an race of millenia-old undead warriors, with unparalleled combat prowess. He does not take advantage of it and just occupies it for the entire sequence.]]

* Played with in ''Videogame/StarControl II'', with both the [[BigBad Kzer-Za]] and [[BiggerBad Kohr-Ah]]. There really isn't ''much'' reason to enter their spheres of control (other than a small incursion for one crucial quest), so for the majority of the game there will be zero contact with either of them. And although they are directly responsible for the entire premise of the game and pretty much everything about its setting, they do not directly influence ''any'' of the action during much of the game itself. On the other hand, this is mainly because the Kzer-Za and Kohr-Ah are busy ''[[EnemyCivilWar fighting each other]]''. [[spoiler:Once that fight is over, however, the Kohr-Ah will suddenly become extremely active, triggering the TickingClock to GameOver.]]

* Requiem in ''Webcomic/MegaManDissonance'' acts like the usual ''Franchise/MegaMan'' antagonist, staying out of harm's way (only initially interacting with Mega Man via an hologram) and letting his followers fight instead. However, he explicitly enjoys seeing Mega Man "running around aimlessly" and trying to defeat his forces, while [[CoDragons his fellow Element 5]] aren't so idle.
* A heroic and {{Justified}} example in the FanFic/TriptychContinuum. Celestia and Princess Luna very rarely take care of problems themselves, despite being probably the most powerful beings in Equestria, because [[spoiler: they are the only two beings (except the imprisioned Discord) who can interface with SUN and MOON.]] If they both die, the world dies with them.

* ''ComicBook/{{Raptors}}'': Don Miguel Y Certa, the master of the vampire order, doesn't really play an active role in the day-to-day politics of vampirekind and letting the CouncilOfVampires bother with such things, instead contenting himself with feasting on the food his servants bring him. In total, he makes about three appearances in the entire comic.
