** Parodied: Dr. Doofenshmirtz restricts all his evil schemes to the Tri-State Area for no obvious reason. The first episode even has him seemingly about to announce that he's going to take over the world, only to pull out a magnifying glass and finish with "Tri-State Area!" It's later revealed that [[OneDegreeOfSeparation he used to date Phineas's mother]], who encouraged his set more realistic goals than "take over the world," so at her suggestion he scaled back to "the ''entire Tri-State Area!''".

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Reboot}}'': In The Medusa Bug", the chaotic villianess Hexadecimal fabricates a viral bug that gradually converts all of Mainframe and its occupants to [[TakenForGranite stone]]. The only character that manages to avoid this fate is Bob, the Guardian, who eventually convinces Hexadecimal that while she may have perfect control over their world, life would be awfully dull with everyone frozen. And, really, the last thing Hex would want is predictability, so she terminates the bug and the system returns to normal.

* 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.
