* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' has the benevolent flavor in Jack's father, who was the Emperor of Japan when [[BigBad Aku]] first invaded. He had a magic katana forged from a piece of his own soul and a substantial boon from several pantheons, kicked Aku's ass with it, and when Aku appeared a second time, gave the sword to his son so that he might do the same. In the same vein, Jack himself technically qualifies as a benevolent Emperor since he is his father's only descendant, and is busting his ass to find a way to undo Aku's oppression. However, since his kingdom was destroyed even before he got sent to the future, Jack has nothing to be emperor of anymore.

* As mentioned in the literature section, the King of Westeros is in reality the textbook definition of an emperor despite the name "King", as is the ruler of seven kingdoms with their own laws and local nobilities.

* The King of Westeros in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' is an Emperor in everything but name as he's the ruler of a large Empire made by several semi-autonomous kingdoms with their respective local lords and in one case, a prince.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' has the Romulan Emperor, ruler of the Romulan Star Empire. The Klingons also use to have an Emperor but the position was abolished somewhere around three centuries before the first series begins. The office gets restored under solely religious and decorative functions once the clone of Khaless (the first emperor) is created in the 24th century.

* ''StarWarsLegacy'' is a comic that takes place a [[TimeSkip hundred and thirty years]] after the movies. The Sith are all over the place, the Empire is back in power, there is an Emperor - but the Sith and the Empire aren't on the same side. Emperor Fel (confirmed as the descendant of [[AcePilot Soontir Fel]] and the sister of [[ImprobablePilotingSkills Wedge Antilles]], possibly also Leia and Han) isn't quite evil, though in [[DarkerAndEdgier that setting]] there's not a whole lot of difference.

* ''Series/IClaudius'', across its truly epic span, takes in [[BrianBlessed Augustus]] (who only avoids looking evil by comparison to what comes after him), his scheming MagnificentBastard of a wife [[TheManBehindTheMan Livia]], her son Tiberius (a colossal pervert and largely useless as a ruler), the original UsefulNotes/{{Caligula}} (for more detail, consult his page), Claudius (unwillingly thrust onto the throne, but proves rather good at it - except for his complete blindness to the machinations of his ''own'' scheming third wife), and, in its last moments, UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}. Anyone who comes away from a complete viewing without at least ''some'' republican (in the original sense) sentiment brewing in their breast should be barred from ever holding any kind of political office.

** It should probably be pointed out, though, that for much of its history, the Emperor of Japan had very little concrete power. For many centuries, Japan was ruled by the Shoguns, and nowadays the country is ruled by the democratically elected government led by the Prime Minister. The most well known period when the emperor directly ruled the country is known as ImperialJapan (from the Meiji Restoration to WWII).
