** It's refutable whether [[AntiHero Brain]] is truly a villain, since he honestly believes the world would be better off with him in charge- he said as much in ''Megalomaniacs Anonymous''. Also notable is the lack of any regularly-appearing nemesis to thwart his schemes (unless you count [[BumblingSidekick Pinky]]); they generally crash & burn on their own. ** On the other hand is Snowball, Brains archrival from the latter series, who has all of the ambition and none of the morals or good intent.

* The person in real life who set the record for most land conquered was Temujin, better known by his title Genghis Khan (even more, if you also count the conquests of his sons). He even invoked this goal when choosing that title, which roughly means "Oceanic ruler".

* The British, through a combination of trade and military action, created [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire an empire that covered a quarter of the globe]], across so many lines of longitude that famously "the sun never set" on their Empire.

The British Colonial Empire actually has the Genghis' empire beat for the title of largest empire in history, although it wasn't created by a single conqueror.

* When 4Kids was dubbing the ''Film/{{Pokemon}}'' movies, they had a habit of changing the villains' motives to this, because [[ViewersAreMorons kids wouldn't understand their original motives]].

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'': The end goal of Medusa Gorgon. Her research is catered toward the evolution of the Black Blood to help her develop ways to manipulate Madness itself, with the Black Clown and the Portable Purple Clown being by-products. Kishins are the only entities capable of manipulating Madness and creating one takes too much time and effort, so she sets her sights on Kishin Asura. With the Black Blood, she wants [[FusionDance to fuse and resonate]] with the Kishin via Madness. Why? As she says: “Those who control Madness control the world.”

[[folder: Religion and Mythology]] * ''Literature/InannasDescentToTheNetherworld:'' Inanna's reason for going to the netherworld in the first place? She wants dominion over the heavens, Earth, ''and'' the underworld, and everything there. She actually gets it, too, though not in the exact way she wanted it and at some great cost. [[/folder]]

* SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor's original goal was to take total control of Metropolis as a foundation for taking over the world, and from there the rest of the universe. Then ComicBook/{{Superman}} showed and started ruining all of his plans. Now his goal is to get rid of Superman so he can get back to his original goal and soothe his massive ego.

** [[WebVideo/TheDomReviews The Dom]] has a variation, effectively his own running gag: Every time he tries to set up the joke, either the clip misses the cue, or the wrong clip plays. Sometimes it's the right line, but the wrong movie, something vise versa.

[[ItRunsInTheFamily All]] are [[WellIntentionedExtremist well-intentioned extremists]] who believes world peace can only be achieved through world domination, involving nukes, threats, and the like.

1 is hardly a few.
** In "Tomb of the Cybermen", Kleig, a human helping the Cybermen for power, goes on a rant about how the world is a disorganized mess of conflicting ideals, and only his superior intellect could bring it together to solve all its problems. A few seasons later, in "The Invasion", Tobias Vaughn, also helping the Cybermen, would make almost word-for-word the same rant.
