* Paul Atishon from ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'' plays this trope to the hilt. As a wannabe assemblyman with [[SmallNameBigEgo delusions of grandeur]], he spends most of his time [[TooImportantToWalk riding around in his personal campaign palanquin]] spouting typical politician platitudes, completely oblivious to the fact that [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating almost no one in Kurain Village likes him or takes him seriously]]. This is before it's learned that he's [[spoiler:accepting stolen artifacts from the kingdom of Khura'in to maintain his influence, and that he uses his influence to blackmail the legendary Phoenix Wright into working as his attorney in order to retrieve one of said artifacts, with his MysteriousBenefactor (Khura'in's [[TheSchemer scheming]] Minister of Justice) holding one of Wright's friends hostage for additional leverage]].

Behind the façade, however, Atishon is a DirtyCoward, begging and pleading whenever things don't go his way.

* The Elephant from ''VideoGame/{{Payday2}}''. He has hired the titular Payday Gang for rigging an election and for framing one of his Democrats rivals (whom, admittedly, was a massive case of an AssholeVictim, but still).

* ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRescueBots'' gives us the self-serving mayor for Grffin Rock, H.B. Luskey. [[spoiler: A prime example of this is "Part-Time Heroes" as the events of that episode happened because he took the funds meant for a new cell phone tower and used them to buy an inflatable stadium.]]

* Governor LePetomane of ''Film/BlazingSaddles'' is an idiot who seems to care mostly about floozies. His attorney general Hedley Lamarr is even more corrupt.

** Mayor Quimby.
** Senator Mendoza.

to:

** Mayor Quimby.
Quimby. He has constant extra-marital affairs, takes bribes, dodges taxes and embezzles city funds. During an outbreak of the flu, he flees to a Caribbean island and mocks the beach up as his office [[BlatantLies saying that he won't leave the city]] and also goes on a "fact finding mission" to Aruba, where he determines that a supertrain directly connecting it with Springfield is unfeasible.
** Senator Mendoza.Mendoza, the BigBad of the [[ShowWithinAShow McBain movies]]. He's an ObviouslyEvil [[TheCartel drug dealer with a vaguely Hispanic accent]], yet is apparently one of the most respected men in America. [[TheAhnold McBain]] gets chewed out by DaChief for breaking the necks of three of his bodyguards [[RefugeInAudacity and driving a bus through his front wall]].
