* ''Series/StargateAtlantis'': Subverted in an episode where Atlantis visits a royal family with the [[SuperpowerfulGenetics gene required to operate Ancient technology]] necessary to protect their planet from the Wraith. The king's son is a snobbish aristocrat who is clearly plotting to overthrow his increasingly fragile father and lock up his sister in the process. The subversion comes when it turns out that it was the ([[EvilAllAlong apparently well-intentioned]]) EvilChancellor who was the real brains behind the plot and locks up the ambitious prince when he has no more use for him.

* Comicbook/[[EvilSorcerer Loki]] is prince by adoption of Asgard and technically prince by birth of the Frost Giants of Jotunheim. He has enough clout with the Frost Giants to at least use them as {{Mooks}} from time to time and regularly schemes to overthrow his adopted father Odin, take over Asgard and kill his foster brother ComicBook/TheMightyThor somewhere along the way.

* From ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', we have Vegeta, who is nicknamed "the Evil Saiyan Prince" [[spoiler:until after his FaceHeelTurn]]. He played the trope more straight during his first confrontation with [[TheHero Goku]]. Despite violent and brutal nature for most of the series unlike most evil Princes Vegeta loved his father and doesn't take the King title out of respect.

* TheHairBearBunch audition for the roles of the bears in a filming of "Goldilocks And The Three Bears." The film's uppity star, Twinkles Sunshine, rewrites it to include an evil prince, a role that zookeeper Peevly winds up getting.

* Minor character Captain Juno of the Turtle Clan in GuildWars is one of those rare female examples. She [[NotProven (allegedly)]] killed her own father to gain leadership of the Clan. She's not an outright evil character. In fact we learn most of this through quests involving her daughter, the Ritualist hero Xandra, from the Eye of the North expansion.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': Though mostly filled with attractive [[BadassPrincess ass kicking Princesses]] and one dude in a [[BadassInANiceSuit sweet tuxedo and mask]] there is one evil Prince: "Demande" who kills his own brother, plans to rewrite history in his favor and kidnaps the main lady after he realizes [[ReallyRoyaltyReveal her royalty]]. In the end he gets killed by Sailor Moon & Tuxedo Mask in BattleCouple style, really these chicks in mini skirts aren't screwing around.

** [[spoiler: 3/4 of the Royal sons of [[EvilIsOneBigHappyFamily Vinsmoke Family]] fit this trope nicely as Prince Ichji Prince Niji and Prince Yonji are huge murderous lustful douchebags who brutally bash their decent brother [[ChefOfIron Sanji]] for feeding servants something royalty should not do. While they have no intention to kill off their equally asshole father [[ArchnemesisDad King Judge]], they still have no issue butchering a island full of soldiers just to end a war and even ordering their henchman to play HumanShield for them. Ironically the only decent Prince in the family is one who refused his royal status Sanji, who plays both Both WarriorPrince and WisePrince. When Sanji returns to his kingdom after 13 years of training , he shows his attitude towards his brothers as when his younger bro Yonji tries ripping into him like he used to, he gets a very different [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/onepiece/images/6/6a/Yonji%27s_Face_Restructured.png/revision/latest?cb=20160725072612 response]] but Sanji still fears his older brothers]].
*** [[spoiler: Vinsmoke Princess [[FemmeFatale Reiju]] is also pretty evil too but in a sexy way]].

brothers and is [[IHaveYourWife forced]] to act like a evil prince so they don't kill everyone close to him]].
