This is ThePatriarch of a crime family -- most often, as CaptainObvious would suggest, TheMafia. He is [[TheChessmaster shrewd]], [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim ruthless]], and better not be crossed. Often he will hold to [[MoralSociopathy an arcane code of honor, which is]] [[BlueAndOrangeMorality perhaps incomprehensible to non-mobsters]]. He will be very protective of his [[TheClan family]] and he will ensure that his [[MafiaPrincess dear little girl]] wants for nothing, all while [[EvilParentsWantGoodKids maintaining the illusion of morality]]. Unlike other villains this type is often fairly GenreSavvy. Quite likely he did read the EvilOverlordList. Also more likely (but not necessary) than many villain archetypes to be an AntiVillain or at least showing that EvenEvilHasStandards, whose sole interest is in keeping the peace in his town and the money flowing.

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', Rod Ross is ''nominally'' the leader of his particular Mafia faction in LA. ''But'' he always defers to Mello (who is a pretty blond boy approximately half Rod's age and [[spoiler: apparently planned to blow up their HQ building with everyone else in it [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness once they were no longer useful to his investigation of Kira]]]]), because Mello is such a shrewd leader and it's good for "business."
