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).

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.

* The Empire of the Rising Sun in RedAlert3. All hail [[Franchise/StarTrek Emperor Sulu!]]. Interestingly, if you win the game as the Empire, Emperor Yoshiro grants you the rank of shogun. Historically, the shogunate usually held all the power in Japan, while the Emperor was merely a figurehead.
* The Terran Empire in ''GroundControl II'', originally the Draconis Empire, who renamed themselves after conquering Earth. They then spend centuries solidifying their hold on the Inner Sphere colonies and building up their military. They then strike out at the [[TheAlliance Northern Star Alliance]], crushing all resistance mercilessly. The leader of the Terran fleet is Imperator Vlaana Azleea, AKA the Butcher of Ariel, charged by TheEmperor to bring all the colonies under Imperial control, even if it means bombing them into nothingness. The Empire is partly modeled after the Roman Empire, including the ranks (imperator, centurion) and the fact that their foot soldiers are called legionnaires.
* ''UniverseAtWar'': The Hierarchy play the stereotypical role of an Empire. Their a galaxy spanning race that has conquered countless worlds, and strip mine them for their resources (and by resources it includes all of its living inhabitants).

* ''Fanfic/EggmanGenerations'', as usual, Eggman's goal is to establish the Eggman Empire. His alternate selves want empires for themselves.
