** A double-whammy in early 20th century Russia, where the Provisional Government that replaced the Tsar (pretty tyrannical himself) was overthrown by the Bolsheviks in the October Revolution, bringing Valdimir Lenin to power. Under Lenin, the state secret police - the "Cheka" - ruthlessly suppressed dissent against the new order through imprisonment, torture and mass executions. When Lenin died, a power struggle ended with Joseph Stalin becoming dictator of the USSR, and proving himself about five times more brutal and tyrannical than Lenin had ever been.

* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'', if Caesar dies due to improper treatment for his brain tumor, the far more tyrannical Legate Lanius takes over as leader of the Legion.
* In between ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', following [[SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome the deaths of Owyn and Sarah Lyons]], Arthur Maxson becomes the Elder of the East Coast Brotherhood of Steel, undoing Lyons' reforms and steering the chapter onto a fascistic and genocidal track {{not so different}} from the Enclave that they defeated.

** The one time Winchester took the helm, this trope only applied to Klinger, whom Winchester employed as his batman. Everyone else was more exasperated by how much a nonentity in command he was, interested only in listening to Wagner and otherwise indulging in GoodToBeTheKing than actually running the unit.

* In ''Literature/AnimalFarm, Farmer Jones is removed from power for neglecting his animals. Eventually Napoleon becomes the new dictator and turns the farm into a work camp, making it worse than it was before! Also the story depicts humans as evil, so as the pigs become more corrupt they slowly turn into humans.

* In ''FanFic/OriginStory'', [[ComicBook/MsMarvel Captain Marvel]] uses the US military and the strength of the US government to usurp leadership of ComicBook/TheAvengers, basically because she holds a grudge against one of her teammates (who had earler given her a [[CurbStompBattle epic-level beatdown]]) and she sees this as the best way to take revenge. Her first order is to announce that not only is [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]] going to be arrested for aiding and abetting a terrorist, but that any of the other Avengers who refuse to toe the line will be sitting in a cell next to him. Only Yellowjacket and Aries comply.

* ''Literature/WarriorCats''
** The first arc has three of them. One of them is Brokenstar, who murdered his father Raggedstar to be [=ShadowClan=]'s leader, and that's where things go downhill for the Clan really fast. He banishes all the elders from the safety of the camp, forces kits to become apprentices at three moons instead of six (and makes them warriors at five moons instead of twelve), and makes his Clan eat rotten food instead of fresh meat to focus on battles. He even [[WouldHurtAChild lets Brightflower's kits die]] and shifts the blame onto Yellowfang (his mother and Brightflower's daughter), banishing her from the Clan. But a lot of [=ShadowClan=] cats get so sick of Brokenstar that they [[TheDogBitesBack team up with a [=ThunderClan=] patrol to drive him out]].
** Tigerstar seems to be a good leader at first when he becomes leader, rebuilding [=ShadowClan=]'s strength, but he still tries to get back at his former [=ThunderClan=]ners. But in ''The Darkest Hour'', he takes over the [=RiverClan=] camp, starts up propaganda against half-Clan cats and executes them, and attacks [=WindClan=] to put fear into them and show what would happen if they did not join [=TigerClan=] (a mix of [=ShadowClan=] and [=RiverClan=]}. It was his tyranny that brings him to his bloody end, as an even fiercer tyrant named Scourge rips him open from head to tail.
** Scourge starts out as a kittypet named Tiny who ran away from home. After he slowly becomes the leader of the stray cats in the city, he forms [=BloodClan=] and forms harsh rules for them to live by. One of his rules is that [[TheSocialDarwinist the weaker cats do not need to be taken care of]]. He doesn't like families living together in fear of being overthrown and punishes them for living together.
