* During the '80s, when tensions with Iran were still high after the hostage crisis, the Joker from Franchise/{{Batman}}, who'd just killed Jason Todd in Africa, was chosen to serve as Iran's UN representative, thus giving him diplomatic immunity. I'll repeat that: ''Iran made The Joker a diplomat.'' This was later {{retcon}}ned so that it was {{Qurac}}, a (fictitious) terrorist state, that gave The Joker diplomatic immunity.

* TheDragon of ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty4'', Khaled al-Asad, becomes the President of an [[{{Qurac}} unnamed Middle-Eastern country]] via a violent coup and then goes on a spree to "liberate" the rest of the Middle East until the United States steps in to stop him.
* Vladimir Makarov essentially becomes this to Russia in ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' after kidnapping the President, resuming his campaign of terror against the United States and Europe as his Ultranationalist circle install their terrorist regime as the new ruling body of Russia and restarting World War III; he is eventually forced underground as Western forces rescue the President and finally cornered after a global manhunt.

* ''Series/{{The100}}'' features Dante and Cage Wallace, respectively son and grandson of the then-sitting US President when the nukes fell. They have been overseeing the creation of [[TheDreaded Reapers]] to keep the Grounders distracted and wary about travelling in the area of Mount Weather, and if that isn't enough, flooding the area with acid fog too. Along with that has been the use of Grounders as HumanResources for their blood, and a long-term plan to manipulate the teenage survivors of the dropship to join the Mount Weather gene pool. When that falls through, Cage launches a coup and orders the forcible removal of bone marrow from the Ark teenagers, even though the method used would kill them.

This supervillain doesn't just have an ElaborateUndergroundBase, they have their own ''country'', often a {{Ruritania}}, BananaRepublic, or {{Qurac}}. Just like the EvilOverlord, but with an international scope. This affords them so many resources and so much power that the heroes often [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption are never able to truly beat them]].

** And believe it or not, he's '''nothing''' compared to [[spoiler: Douglas Coe]]. How bad is he? [[spoiler: Under his command, congress is destroyed (literally), DC has many of its historic landmarks demolished to make way for [[MonumentOfHumiliationAndDefeat monuments to himself and Jesus]], and the US is transformed into a totalitarian theocracy, complete with the 10 commandments added into the constitution. By 1990, the country has descended into a second civil war, with [[DividedStatesOfAmerica entire regions of states declaring independence]]. To crush any attempted invasions or resistance movements, Coe fully embraces the use of ''nuclear weapons''.]]
