* Around the time of the Watergate scandal, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica discovered that the head of the terrorist organization known as the Secret Empire was in fact "a high-ranking government official" (i.e. President Nixon). He was sufficiently horrified by this that he temporarily abandoned the Captain America identity, calling himself "Nomad". It's not clear what Nixon was supposed to have meant to accomplish by running a conspiracy to take over the U.S.A.

* In ''Film/TheDeadZone'', Johnny Smith (played by ChristopherWalken) shakes the hand of politician Greg Stillson (Martin Sheen) and forsees that he will become president who, in a moment of megalomania ("YOU are not the voice of the people! I AM THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE!"), orders a nuclear strike, thus destroying the world. [[HilariousInHindsight This scene is pretty funny to those who mainly know]] [[TheWestWing Sheen as the wise, principled President Jed Bartlet]]

* In ''Literature/NoW'', a series of events leads to [[spoiler: Rick Santorum]] becoming President in 2005, and he immediately goes about turning the United States into a theocratic dictatorship. Laws are passed banning video games or television shows with even the slightest hint of adult content, and persecuting the LGBT community. Muslim-Americans are scapegoated for the actions of Islamic terrorists, and later rounded up into internment camps "for their protection". Right-wing and anti-Muslim governments around the world are backed by force (including covertly trying to bring about RegimeChange in Israel to avoid peace with Palestine). And most tellingly, anyone who publicly disagrees with the administration (politicians and civilians alike) tend to wind up either dead, arrested on trumped up charges, or disappeared.

* ''VideoGame/Persona5'' has Masayoshi Shido, a CorruptPolitician who is [[spoiler:the secret head of TheConspiracy to turn Tokyo into an authoritarian dictatorship. Thankfully for Japan, he's thwarted by [[SpannerInTheWorks by several wrenches]], but it really goes to show that his populist appeal coinciding with the rise of nationalism in today's world makes his rise a [[AdultFear very frightening - and very possible - reality.]]]]
