* According to TheOtherWiki England had already been technically an empire since [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statute_in_Restraint_of_Appeals 1533]], however the titles King and [[TheKingdom Kingdom]] were retained. It is however unknown, what effects the Acts of Union had on this…

** As noted above, the status of the British monarchs is complicated, TheOtherWiki even has an extra article for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Emperor British Emperor]].

* The Scarlet Empress in ''{{Exalted}}'' cultivates an appearance of moral ambivalence: while responsible for saving the world, and running one of the most stable nations she also ruthlessly pursued war, and deliberately made her government so that it would fall apart with out her and raised her children to fight among themselves for her favor. In ''actuality'', she originally gained control of the Imperial Defense Grid via human sacrifice, and just recently sacrificed her youngest daughter (just 12 years old!) to one of the rulers of Hell in a failed attempt to gain immortality...and at least in the first case, [[IDidWhatIHadToDo saved Creation by doing so]]. The setting goes out of its way to make the Empress' morality as grey as possible.

* ''SuikodenI'' features the Scarlet Moon Emperor as the BigBad and FinalBoss, although the ''real'' villain is [[TheManBehindTheMan the (Wo)man Behind the Man]], Lady Windy.
* ''BreathOfFire I'' features as antagonists the Dark Dragons, who are led by Emperor Zog (who, oddly, is the only Dark Dragon who is actually, you know, a dragon. All the other Dark Dragons are insectile monster thingys). Furthermore, while Zog is the Emperor, the Dark Dragons' organization never seems to be referred to as an Empire.
** ''Breath of Fire IV'' features Fou Lu, the founder and first emperor of the Fou Empire, being persecuted by the very empire he founded under the orders of incumbent Emperor Soniel.

* ''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.

What little we see of his royal lifestyle on the epilogue shows that he's doing a good job himself.]]

** 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). There's also the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysanthemum_taboo Chrysanthemum taboo]] where you're not supposed to make fun of him and his family.
