* The empire in ''VideoGame/{{Alphadia}}'' had spent the past century of relative peace by secretly re-arming itself, allowing it to easily conquer the other, disarmed, nations.

** The Franchise/FinalFantasyCrystalChronicles series has had a few. The original game takes place a while after the [[CuteBruiser fall of the Liltian Empire]], and [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesCrystalBearers Crystal Bearers]] takes place in the reign of it's revival. There was also an [[{{Precursors}} Ancient Empire]] in the past of ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesEchoesOfTime Echoes of Time]]'', led by a powerful EmperorScientist. [[spoiler: Who is the game's immortal BigBad.]]

* The conflict of ''ComicBook/{{Dreadstar}}'' is dominated by a war between two powerful empires for control of the Empirical Galaxy. The Monarchy is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, and is nominally controlled by [[PuppetKing King Gregzor]] but is really ruled by various corrupt factions in the military and aristocracy, the most powerful of which is the enigmatic EvilChancellor [[MalevolentMaskedMen Z]]; the Instrumentality is TheTheocracy, being run by the church and it's spiritual and political head is [[PriestKing the Lord High Papap]]. They're both about equally evil, but the Instrumentality is more dangerous because it's more competently lead [[spoiler: and it ends up winning the war when Z sells the Monarchy out]].

* While not always directly antagonistic, the Holy Lodis Empire is easily the largest military force in the ''OgreBattle'' and ''TacticsOgre'' games and makes its presence known similarly to the Harmonians listed above.

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfGraces'', the empire of Fendel is a corrupt mess that the other countries hate. Later in game you get to see how Fendel's people are affected by the corrupt government. In the town of Velanik, you can find a treasure chest at the end of a narrow path. Inside of it is a spoon, but when you turn around to leave a starving Fendelian child is blocking your way. You have to pay him 1,000 gald to escape. Thanks, the Empire!

** ''All'' of the Successor States are empires. The Draconis Combine is less subtle about it than the others, but all five are cut from the same ruthless cloth and are ruled by dynastic emperors. Their primary opposition, the Clans, are TheHorde, and the closest thing in the Inner Sphere to a democracy, the Free Rasalhague Republic, which got conquered by Clan Ghost Bear, and the Outerworlds Alliance, which later merged with Clan Snow Raven. Though the Clan did allow Rasalhague to retain their parliament and ElectiveMonarchy, however Princes tend to be Ghost Bear Khans ever since they claimed Prince Ragnar as a bondsman.

** Actually, it used to be due to physiology, during the infancy of space travel, which is the purpose for which the Abh [[spoiler: were created in the first place]], but now with CasualInterstellarTravel, it is very much racism/classism.

* 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.
