* Anybody who has ever played ''SuikodenII'' for more than five minutes knows that [[TheEvilPrince Prince Luca Blight]] may even dwarf [[UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}} Caligula himself]] in the AxCrazy psycho department. This is a man who [[MoralEventHorizon had his country's equivalent of the Boy Scouts murdered to restart a pointless war]], and when burning entire towns to the ground [[ForTheEvulz for the hell of it]], would round up, torture, and slaughter every single villager one by one ''personally'' while [[EvilLaugh laughing merrily]] with a [[SlasherSmile smile on his face]]. Deconstructed when [[spoiler:shortly after he becomes the king, his own subordinates help the heroes ambush him as they know that he is too insane to be trusted with so much power.]]

* ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': Frieza is a [[AxCrazy violent]] tyrant who readily kills his own men when he's in a foul mood, but [[SanitySlippage he really falls off the deep end]] after his defeat to Goku. When he's rebuilt into a cyborg, he rushes to Earth with his dad to get revenge, and is killed by Future Trunks. When he's revived, instead of listening to his men who beg him to leave the Super Saiyan alone and rebuild his failing empire, he ignores them and devotes all his remaining resources to invading Earth. Although he last longer against Goku and Vegeta thanks to his four months of training, he's killed again in the end, and what is left of his empire also [[NiceJobFixingItVillain dies on Earth]].

* Eridan Ampora (aka "[[MeaningfulName caligulasAquarium]]") from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is a number of the royal sea-dwelling troll caste. His primary interests revolve around genocide of the land-dwellers and his many failed efforts at romance. He mostly embodies this trope in his blind self-absorption and poor decision making [[spoiler:until his FaceHeelTurn]].

** The Prophet of Truth is a blackmailer. He blackmailed the other two into take power alongside him, and blackmailed his way into power in the first place. He's also a ConsummateLiar and a total psychopath.

** The Prophet of Truth is a blackmailer. He blackmailed the other two into take power alongside him, and blackmailed his way into power in the first place. He's also a ConsummateLiar and a total psychopath. He's more than competent at politics he makes a few pretty bad calls military wise which as Rtas' Vadum points out; completely screws over the fleet's opportunity to thwart the Chief's assassination of Regret.

* Gjallarhorn of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' is pretty much this but applied to TheFederation. It's ruled by corrupt aristocrats who will eliminate anything in their path, no matter how insignificant. Corruption is rampant to the point [[AlwaysChaoticEvil that having anyone with a modicum of decency and morality is a rarity]], and they even fully condone lesser rights for Martians and colonists so that they're easier to oppress. They even murder [[ChildSoldier Tekkadan kids]] with glee in their attempts to kill one publicly-known young woman advocating for Martian rights. [[FromBadToWorse It gets worse]] to the point that [[spoiler:season 2's BigBad had to ''reform and restructure Gjallarhorn both out of necessity from all other ruling parties being killed and out of sheer efficiency's sake due to the ruthless chaos and suppression just making everything worse''.]]

* [[spoiler: Wheatley]] from ''VideoGame/Portal2'' becomes DrunkWithPower after [[spoiler: taking over [=GLaDOS=]'s body. He stuffs [=GLaDOS=]'s consciousness in a potato and punches both her and [[PlayerCharacter Chell]] down an elevator shaft, into Old Aperture]]. When they return to [[spoiler: the top layer of the facility, Wheatley explains that he ''has'' to perform tests, as when he does, he gets [[ImmodestOrgasm a feeling of extreme euphoria]], and if he doesn't, he gets an "itch" that slowly becomes unbearable. As a result of this itch, he gains a HairTriggerTemper and a complete disregard for Chell's wellbeing. Combine that with his complete disregard for the nuclear core which'll ''melt down'' if it doesn't get vented properly, and he's probably the most dangerous villain of both games.]]

* A milder Caligula appears in v2 of ''OpenBlue'', Count Marcus Veneto, who even made his horse his war advisor, in a ShoutOut to the TropeNamer. The 'milder' comes from the fact that he's trying to get his act together. It's implied that this change of heart is the result of [[TheMenInBlack Men In Black]] being sent by ''two'' allied [[TheEmpire empires]] to intimidate him into doing so. Suffice to say, that hasn't stopped him from requesting an AmazonBrigade for his personal guard and naming them the [[KillerRabbit Killer Bunny Assassination Squad]].
