* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice'': The BigBad is one, as [[spoiler:[[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] [[JudgeJuryAndExecutioner Ga'ran]]]] turned the Kingdom of Khura'in into what in essence is a PoliceState, where {{Kangaroo Court}}s are used to execute defendants and ''their attorneys'', thanks to the Defense Culpability Act. Even Phoenix and Apollo are appalled at the [[MiscarriageOfJustice kingdom's downright corrupt and toxic legal system]], as there were countless false convictions in Khura'in due to the genocide of defense attorneys. In short, many of the attorneys who previously practiced in Khura'in were arrested and executed for aiding their clients, with those still remaining forming an organized rebellion against the BigBad.

Of course, the Defense Culpability Act is what's keeping Ga'ran in power, and she's the reason why lawyers are regarded as garbage in that country. All because she staged an assassination attempt on the previous queen to frame a renowned lawyer and [[TheUsurper elevate herself]] [[TyrantTakesTheHelm as the new queen]] after overthrowing her sister. Because she was the ''de facto'' queen of Khura'in, she was also the ''de facto'' head of the religion of Khura'inism and perverted it into a CorruptChurch. She actually isn't fit to rule the kingdom, as she can't channel spirits unlike her sister. Even her PraetorianGuard [[BodyguardBetrayal turns]] [[MookFaceTurn on]] her once she's revealed to be a PhonyPsychic. In a nutshell, Ga'ran is nothing but a completely insane and paranoid loon who [[BelievingTheirOwnLies slowly deluded herself]] that she was the Holy Mother whom she tried to channel.]]

* ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' has two separate examples:
** [[NotSoHarmlessVillain The Grandmaster]] is a LaughablyEvil example, as he is presented as an hilarious CloudCuckoolander that rules over an planet with iron fist, forcing people to fight in the arena and executing those who displease him with a [[CruelAndUnusualDeath melting ray]]. Needless to say, Loki considers him a "lunatic" though to be fair, the Grandmaster has been ruling Sakaar for ages which implies that he is at least competent enough to stay in power. [[spoiler:The post-credit scene shows he was deposed by revolutionaries]].
** ComicBook/{{Hela}}, on the other hand, plays this trope [[KnightOfCerebus completely serious]]. As soon as she takes control of Asgard (by slaughtering their entire army [[OneManArmy by herself]] no less), she begins a {{reign of terror}} upon her kingdom to recover the Bifrost sword so she can re-start her campaign of conquest of all realms in existence. She is so bad that [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating nobody really likes her]], outside of her undead minions (who are beholden to her will), the only one who willingly follows her is Skurge, who is scared witless of her.

** A childlike queen who just wants to create a nation where all races of the world can live in peace, accompanied by cheerful sentient objects. How could this go wrong? By having said queen, Charlotte Linlin AKA Big Mom, be a [[LargeAndInCharge giant-sized]] [[AxCrazy sociopath]] who switches between a somewhat reasonable schemer, an [[PsychopathicManChild oversized brat]] with the power of two armies (her pirate army and herself being a OneManArmy) and an uncontrollable berserker who murders everything that gets in her way. She has everyone who lives in her kingdom pay pieces of their SOULS (effectively reducing their lifespan) so she can put them into inanimate objects and bring them to life as her homies, threatens people by saying she'll chop off a loved one's head and send it to them in a box, holds extravagant tea parties where she plans to kill certain guests and have everybody dance on their corpses and eat cake. And to top it all off, she's one of the worst mothers in anime, frequently berating, beating and occasionally killing her 85 children. GodSaveUsFromTheQueen indeed.

* In Barry Hughart's ''Literature/BridgeOfBirds The Story of the Stone'', the infamous Laughing Prince committed all sorts of horrors on the peasants in his valley, some of them [[ImmortalitySeeker in pursuit of immortality]], [[AxCrazy some just because he was crazy.]] He was named for his cheerful, laughing demeanor and charming little dance step. Li Kao diagnoses him as brain-damaged from repeated consumption of a mercury-laced "elixir of life."

When [[NominalHero Thief King Bakura]] tries to subvert this, the Pharaoh ends up declaring that Slavemas will now be celebrated every day.
