** 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 a million times more brutal and tyrannical than Lenin had ever been.

* ''{{Starcraft}}'' provides Arcturus Mengsk, who fills this role as the Emperor of the Dominion. The point is not that Mengsk is worse than the government he overthrew, but that he is just as bad: that the only thing changed between the Confederacy and the Dominion was the label. Well, and he has a [[ItsPersonal personal grudge against Raynor]]. As of ''[[VideoGame/StarcraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm Heart of the Swarm]]'', [[spoiler: he has finally been deposed. His son, Valerian, who inherited his position, is way more benevolent as a ruler.]]

* ''Series/TheMrPotatoHeadShow'': The western episode-[[ShowWithinAShow episode]] sees the TV bosses giving Mr. Potato Head a literally impossible task. When he calls them out on its impossibility, they put an [[SarcasmMode oh-so-subtly-named]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Bully-Boy McPherson]] in charge of his show, and give him a contract that allows him to cancel the show if he's not satisfied with the cast's work, which repeatedly threatens to use!

* After the TimeSkip of ''Manga/OnePiece'', [[spoiler:Akainu]] becomes the Fleet Admiral. He's already introduced {{Conscription}} to bolster his forces and he has entertained the idea of using WeaponsOfMassDestruction, regardless of the legality or the ethics involved.

He's so horrible that [[spoiler:Aokiji]] fought him for ''six days straight'' in an effort to become Fleet Admiral himself just so [[spoiler:Akainu]] wouldn't get the position, and when he lost, he [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere promptly quit the Marines]] rather than work under him.



* Scar in ''Disney/TheLionKing'', "reluctantly" assuming the throne (after murdering his older brother Mufasa to get it) and issuing his Nazi-esque hyena regime.

Within the span of a few years, he runs the Pride Lands into the ground, and [[ZeroPercentApprovalRating even the hyenas who serve him are in agreement that Mufasa was a much better king than Scar ever was]].
