* ''TheFiveStarStories'' has FEMC GL IIII Amaterasu dis Greens OOE Ikaruga, better known as Sarion. While he's a pretty minor character, he still fits this trope as a glove. AxCrazy? Check. [[SelfMadeOrphan Made himself an orphan]] just ForTheEvulz? Check. [[KickTheDog Gleefully permitted]] his underlings to rape and pillage ''their own nation'' during his rebellion? Check. Rebelled ''after'' his royal cousin the protagonist commuted his death sentence (due to aforementioned orphaning) to life imprisonment because [[FantasticRacism a lowly fatima]] was [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses made a princess]] and [[AmbitionIsEvil placed higher than him]] in a succession? A tick mark the size of a Float Temple.

* Believed to be the case in-universe in ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle''. The Valerians fear that their (supposedly) evil twin princes [[spoiler: Fai and Yuui]] will usurp the throne someday, and this is implied to be part of the reason that said twins are "punished" as horribly as they are.

** Likewise Marvel's {{Thanos}}, whom is an Expy of Darkseid, was the eldest son to the planet Titan's leader and was banished for his crimes. Years later he would return to devastate Titan and rule it with an iron fist until he was defeated by Earth's heroes during his first encounter with the cosmic cube.

* Otwani in ''Film/{{Sheena}}''. He is a modern example as the film is set in then present day Africa. He has his brother Jabalani assassinated so he can become king.
* Prince Humperdink from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.

* Prince Humperdink from ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.''Film/ThePrincessBride'', although he doesn't fit the trope entirely straight. He has no intention, either in the film or [[Literature/ThePrincessBride the book]], of killing his father or doing anything else to get him out of the way. (In fact, in the book he's shown to be quite disillusioned to learn that his father is dying, because it means he has to get married and actually deal with the matters of ruling; he'd rather spend his time hunting.) He only actually falls into the Evil Prince slot when [[spoiler:he comes up with the plan to kill his wife and frame a rival kingdom for it, giving him the excuse he's always wanted to conquer them]].



* Princess Eleanor of the short-lived British drama ''Series/ThePalace'' is an ultra rare female example. Within the (fictional, and unnamed) [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishRoyalFamily British royal family]] depicted on the show she is the older sister of the new King, Richard IV. She doesn't stoop to violence, but she clearly has no qualms about forcing her brother to abdicate through scandal and political crisis.

* The Yellow Bastard from ''ComicBook/SinCity'' fits this trope [[UpToEleven and then some]]. As the son of a sadistic United States Senator and heir to the most powerful (and evil) family in Basin City, Roark Junior has ''carte blanche'' to do whatever the hell he feels like with impunity -- [[{{Squick}} including preying on children.]]

* Lanny from ''PairOfKings''; presumably a prince, because he was to have been king before Boomer and Brady came along.

* An episode of ''{{Space 1999}}'' had aliens kidnap Maya to extract her brain cells for their leader's bid for immortality. The prince was less than pleased about this, so he helped foil the king's plan before trying to become immortal himself.

* Many, ''many'' characters in Creator/WilliamShakespeare, but Claudius (''{{Hamlet}}''), Macbeth (''Macbeth'') and Richard, Duke of Gloucester (''Richard III'') are the three most prominent. Don John from ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'' might count as well, although he's more interested in messing with the life of his brother than taking power (during the play -- he's said to have rebelled ''before'' the play). About half of the examples in other media come from works that are, to a greater or lesser extent, based on these villains.
