* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' "Empire" is the game term for any polity capable of spaceflight and in control of at least one planet, but they need not necessarily fit this trope, depending on government type and AI personality. The Despotic Empire and Star Empire governments and the "Hegemonic Imperialists" personality are closest. Of course, a player can choose a democratic government and still conquer the galaxy by military force.

Added DiffLines:

* The Empire of Nuevaropa in ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'' looks pleasant enough if you're a foreigner or an outsider, but politicking is the order of the day, the court is both [[DeadlyDecadentCourt decadent and deadly]], many lords routinly whip and brutally punish their serfs and everything is taking a sharp turn towards religious fundamentalism.

* ComicBook/Asterix: Unsurprisingly the Roman Empire qualifies for this trope. The official stance is to call all others barbarians who will be "civilised" either with or without their consent. There are also plenty of corrupt prefects and centurions sho scheme at everybody else's expense. The irony of course is that in this time, when Caesar was dictator, it was still UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic.

* Inverted in AnimaBeyondFantasy with the Empire of Abel and the Azur Alliance -as well as before things got screwed up, when the Empire is described as a benevolent entity (at least for humans and not supernatural stuff).

* ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient'' has the [[BigBad Marder]]'s Empire. The story begins when Marder's troops invade the capital city of [[TheKingdom the peaceful kingdom of Arst]], killing dozens of people, murdering the king, kidnapping the queen and conquering the country. During the next decade, Marder expanded his empire, encroaching upon most of planet Arst and killing brutally whoever opposed him. The twist is he ''doesn't care for Arst'', he only wants to seize the planet resources in order to launch an interplanetary war.

* ''VideoGame/DiscoveryFreelancer'' has two immediate examples of [[OutsideContextVillain Gallia]] and [[EqualOpportunityEvil The Core]] so far, with the Nomads being pretty much [[Series/{{Firefly}} Reavers.]]

* The Gestahl Empire in ''VideoGame/AlphadiaGenesis2'' doesn't hide the fact that it's using the purge of "accursed" as an excuse to kill anyone who would be planning a revolution. Women and children are not spared.
