* [[UsefulNotes/TheRomanEmpire Caesar Augustus]] accomplished this, in that he took over an already-powerful republic and made himself absolute ruler. Contemporaries would compare him to Alexander the Great, but Augustus pointed out that it was far more difficult to rule an empire than to conquer one.

** This Trope is a running joke for the Nostalgia Critic in his reviews. When the antagonist of any film is revealed to have this goal in mind the review will be interrupted by M. Bison as he was played by Raul Julia in [[Film/StreetFighter the movie adaptation of]] ''Franchise/StreetFighter''. The joke goes like this:

For more information, check out the EvilOverlordList, a detailed guide on what an evil overlord should and should not do. Typically, this is accomplished with StockEvilOverlordTactics. Although sometimes the plans of villains with this motivation go rather in the MissingStepsPlan direction. For several country-specific [[SubTrope SubTropes]], see AmericaTakesOverTheWorld, RussiaTakesOverTheWorld, JapanTakesOverTheWorld, and ChinaTakesOverTheWorld. See TakeOverTheCity for a more modest version. A VillainWorld is a situation where this actually happened (for absence of a hero or some other incident that granted the bad guys absolute power) but a hero emerges and begins to undo the damage from the inside. For the opposite, see SaveTheWorld.

There have been
several country-specific [[SubTrope SubTropes]], see SubTropes]] which have been popularized in American thought and media, each country taking its turn to be the boogeyman for a few decades. These would include:

*
AmericaTakesOverTheWorld, which has generally always been a concept people in the post WWII era have entertained, especially in the post ColdWar world with USA being the sole hyper power.
*
RussiaTakesOverTheWorld, which was popular during the RedScare in the 1950s and 1960s. The advent of detente however led to...
*
JapanTakesOverTheWorld, which was influenced by Japan's powerful economy that emerged in the 1970s and ChinaTakesOverTheWorld. the spread of its pop culture in the 1980s. The lost decade of Japan in the 90s which led to an economic and production standstill has led to another East Asian superpower filling this role, which would be...
* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld, a concept that has gained influence in the 1990s with the rise of the Chinese Economy and manufacturing center. The economic liberalization and large population which has also made the Chinese an influential target for corporations and movie studios back this claim alongside China's powerful army. With a recession in the 2010s however, this trope may now be discredited.
