* In the backstory of ''FanFic/AgesOfShadow'', [[FallenHero Jade]] tried to do this with her newfound power, but that just led to her being [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]]. Once reestablishing contact with Earth (well, an AlternateUniverse version, anyway), she tries to do this the old fashioned way via her [[ReligionOfEvil Shadow Walkers]] conquering lands by force.

And when that fails, she decides on a more direct approach, having the Walkers gather the soul energy needed to make her strong enough to escape her imprisonment and conquer the world directly [[spoiler: by pulling it into the Netherworld with her]].

** It was {{deconstructed|Trope}} the trope in a short-lived sub-comic ''Raw Lemons and Baked Pizza''. After having it up to here with Dr. Wily, Mega Man finally spells out just what taking over the world will require. Namely, having to sort out the already noticeable mess of differences between various nations, having to deal with the various uprisings, learning ever language known to man just to communicate with them, getting people to accept his rule in the first place and the insane amounts of stress that would be implied. It ends on a nice humorous note as Dr. Wily, having clearly gone too insane to recover, laments that he already had a custom gold world-domination crown made.
