* TheSpectacularSpiderMan: L. Thompson Lincoln's outfit is this (in fact, he's was probably meant to Kingpin, the example listed under Comics). He's the secret identity of The Big Man of Crime in New York, and bit players in the underworld think he's a myth- meanwhile, Lincoln himself is publicly believed to be an odd-looking philanthropist. By season 3, there's a three way straggle over his power base between him, the standard Mafia, and the growing super villain community.

* AssassinsCreedSyndicate (what a surprise): This time around, the Templars exert control over London through drug trade and organizing local street thugs (along with a few legal but horrible means, like child labor). Your protagonists have the option of forming their own good-aligned syndicate to combat them.

* From Manga/OnePiece, there's Baroque Works, a secretive but extensive criminal organization led by a pirate-turned-privateer-turned back to a life of crime. Said leader used the entire organization as a means to overthrow the government of the kingdom of Alabasta, all so he could comb the country for a legendary ancient weapon of mass destruction. [[spoiler: The whole shebang collapsed at the end of its story arc, all of its major players sent to Impel Down]].

** The other main criminal element in Star Wars novels are the Hutt syndicates, called "kajidics." Those are family-based clans that have a loose governing body but fiercely compete with each other for control of the underworld. They are closer to traditional gangsters than Black Sun, mostly concentrating on control of the slave trade or the spice (drug) trade rather than Xizor's high-stakes games in galactic politics. The two most powerful kadjidics in the original trilogy era were Desilijic (Jabba's organization) and its main enemy Besadii (which eventually ends up being absorbed by Black Sun, at least until Xizor's death).
