* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** The leader of the ThievesGuild in each game where it appears qualifies. Naturally, the PlayerCharacter can always rise up to that rank by finishing the Guild quest line.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'':
*** Master Thief [[MeaningfulName Gentleman]] [[GentlemanThief Jim]] [[JustLikeRobinHood Stacey]] holds the position.
*** The Camonna Tong, the [[TheMafia Mafia-esque]] native Dunmer [[TheSyndicate Syndicate]], are rivals to the Imperial Thieves Guild and are led by the crime boss, Orvas Dren. In contrast to the violence-averse Thieves Guild, they are much more gang-like and thuggish, resorting to violence to get want they want while also running Morrowind's illegal drug, smuggling, and slaving operations.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' has the mysterious Gray Fox in this position.
** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' has Mercer Frey in this position.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' has "Legitimate Businessman" Chrysoprase the troll, allegedly a 'Ton' in the disorganized crime syndicate, the Breccia. Of course, every sensible troll knows that the Breccia ''doesn't exist''. Definitely not. If it did exist without his permission, Mister Chrysoprase would be ''very upset''. In the animated ''Discworld/WyrdSisters'', Chrysoprase is clearly based on Don Corleone.
