* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Joffrey actually ''subverts'' this trope. Yes, he's a RoyalBrat and an evil king, but his ''sole'' sympathetic moment is his distraught moment at the deathbed of the man he considers his father. His [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen conniving mother]] actually orchestrated the king's death so she could [[MotherMakesYouKing put her son on the throne]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Joffrey actually ''subverts'' this trope. Yes, he's a RoyalBrat and an evil king, king but he legitimately has nothing to do with his predecessor's death. His ''sole'' sympathetic moment is his distraught moment at the deathbed of the man he considers his father. His [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen conniving mother]] actually orchestrated the king's death so she could [[MotherMakesYouKing put her son on the throne]].

Added DiffLines:

* While Touka Bergatt from ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' is an earl's son rather than a prince he otherwise fits this perfectly with his plans increase the Bergatt house's power and lands and make a puppet of the royal family's representative in the north. There's also the fact that [[spoiler:he murdered his father to take over as head of the house]].

Evil Prince Bob knows he's the stuff of which great kings are made. Unfortunately, while he is [[RoyalBlood in line]] for [[TheKingdom the throne]], there are a lot of lesser men in front of him. If only Prince Bob could...persuade them to get out of the way, then nothing would stand between him and the glorious reign he ''knows'' he is destined to have.

* Prince Yurias of ''Tecmo's VideoGame/{{Deception'' is the classic example, framing your character, his brother, for the murder of the king in a bid for the throne, and he has you burned at the stake for good measure. Your character turns into an alternative example, as he is rescued by a demon named Astarte and becomes lord of the Castle of the Damned, responsible for the deaths of nearby townspeople regardless of what your motives ultimately end up being.

* ''Anime/SailorMoon'': Though mostly filled with attractive [[BadassPrincess ass kicking Princesses]] 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 & [[BadassInANiceSuit Tuxedo Mask]] in BattleCouple style, really these chicks in mini skirts aren't screwing around.

* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', Prince [[VisionaryVillain Geraden]], the cousin of the current King [[AChildShallLeadThem Gerard]] [[TheWisePrince Aurelac]] [[WarriorPrince de Maar Sul]], was kidnapped as a baby and ended up corrupted into an amoral, power-hungry warrior. He sees his younger cousin as a weak, easily manipulative fool who has in his view robbed him of his rightful throne and that it is his destiny to turn Maar Sul into a powerful, feared kingdom which it once was. [[BadassPrincess Emira]] [[ManipulativeBastard Adela]] [[WomanScorned al-Saif]] ends up killing her twin sister [[TheHighQueen Razia]] in order to become the Sultana of Vanna.

* Ashnard from ''FireEmblem'': ''Path of Radiance''. Unusual in that he was only distantly related to the previous king; ''a lot'' of people had to die for him to take the throne. ''Radiant Dawn'' explicitly shows him cutting down the king, although that was to break the curse Ashnard setup to kill everyone else before it killed him.

* One of the [[EverythingTryingToKillYou many people trying to murder you]] in VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen is doing so in order to move up the order of succession. [[spoiler: Of course, she's not actually out for the throne directly, but to put her husband and daughter onto the throne while she rules from the shadows.]]

* Tsukuyomi from ''MugenDensetsuTakamagahara DreamSaga'' refuses to allow Amaterasu to awaken because her current incarnation, his sister, would quash his pollution-and-repression-happy regime in an instant. [[spoiler: Actually, she'd do [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt a lot more than that]]]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has a few: Wapol a spoiled gluttonous, tin plated asshole who was so bad even his father of the King of drum Kingdom was concerned about him. Unfortunately he kicked the bucket and Wapol took over ruling and was [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen terrible ass king]] luckily Main Hero Luffy literally [[VillainExitStageLeft blasted him out of his kingdom]].
