** In that same story, Namor founds a new Cabal, consisting of himself, Thanos, Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Maximus the Mad, Black Swan and an alternate universe's Terrax. They assembled to deal with the the omniversal destruction problem, and were actually doing better than the Illuminati, though only because nobody on the team was bothered by murdering billions of people on a regular basis (in fact, most of the group liked it).

* Wrestling/{{TNA}}'s latest PowerStable Immortal played this mostly straight at first, from the mass of foreshadowing to the ominous date of their takeover to the things they said to the quality of their regime's first show. The one subverting element was their "AncientConspiracy" is only ancient compared to the lifetime of most plots in wrestling. But then [[ConspiracyRedemption Fortune rebelled]] and Wrestling/JeffHardy tanked a pay-per-view. Immortal still remained, but their illusion of ominous power plummeted and would only continue to fade since.

* Mobius from ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin'' and ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin2'' are an influential organization that controls every system of government, having controlled everything behind the scenes for a very long time. Their Administrator funded Ruvik's [=STEM=] research as a means of bringing everyone into a single HiveMind under their OneWorldOrder. Every operative, from janitorial to the Administrator himself, has a chip implanted in their skull, making sure that any sign of disloyalty meant instant death (something that takes them down in the end).

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': In the episode "The Ricklantis Mix-up", we find out that the Council of Ricks that Rick C-137 (the show's "main Rick") [[spoiled:killed off in "The Rickshank Redemption"]] were actually [[TheManBehindTheMan controlled from behind the scenes]] by the Shadow Council of Ricks, who plan to control the newly-elected [[spoiler:President Morty in the same way. Unfortunately for them, this is subverted when President Morty turns out to actually be Evil Morty, and he promptly subjects the Shadow Council to the BoardToDeath trope by having all but two of them killed, with the remaining two forced to be subservient to him]].

* In the graphic novel ''Cryptocracy'', it's explained that the Illuminati are a myth created by the ''real'' AncientConspiracy, the Nine Families, who count on it being so outlandish that only the most fringe of groups will believe it, thus allowing them to keep working in the shadows. Also, it makes a good means of recruiting pawns -- young rich people, the kind who'll one day be political and corporate elites, are convinced that they're being recruited for the Illuminati, and undergo humiliating "initiation rituals", footage of which is then used as blackmail material to ensure that they do what the Families want, without ever being allowed into the actual tiers of power.

* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII''[='s=] antagonist leads an interesting take on this. The Illuminati in these games have a lot of religious symbolism and are more akin to a psychotic cult than an oppressive secret society. Gill himself is a NietzscheWannabe dark savior with obscene doses of AGodAmI. Oh, and then there's the fact that he's red and blue skinned and clad in a thong... Although, they do have the whole AncientConspiracy thing going on.
** The Illuminati also play a vital part in the plot of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'', which is set few before ''III''. i.e., they're behind [[spoiler: Charlie Nash being BackFromTheDead (with Gill's SexySecretary Kolin as a sort-of monitor)]] and also [[spoiler: have Juri Han as their ally in exchange for a new eye that replaces her Feng Shui Engine]].
