* In the ArchieComics ''Comicbook/SonicTheHedgehog'' there is a dimension where Knuckles the Echidna went mad with power and, in an attempt to "bring order to chaos" as he phrased it, he began to conquer the entire planet. He vanquished all enemies, hero (Sonic, Shadow, Tails, etc.) and villain (Eggman, Ixis Naugus, Snively) alike, making sure to take their souls to form the core of his army for extra insurance. However, upon ruling it, he became extremely bored, and allowed a few Freedom Fighters to exist - despite knowing their location already - so as to keep himself entertained. Eventually, dark Knuckles, better known as Enerjak, decided to look for other worlds to conquer three decades after this all had transpired, and in turn sealed his fate.

** In the SeriesFinale, after 104 days initiating his not-so-evil plans to take over the Tri-State Area that invariably fail, the show's {{Big Bad}} Dr. Doofenshmirtz finally formulates a real brilliant one by creating a political position known as Tri-State Governor and successfully getting himself elected for the office. To do so, Doof sets up 30 traps to keep Perry busy, and after winning the election, he takes the opportunity to sign a law forbidding any agent from thwarting him until his term is over, leaving Perry depressed. However, Doof soon learns that despite his newfound success as Tri-Governor, he is quite unhappy with his new job (due to its busy schedule), so he makes a HeelFaceTurn.

* The 'Crime Syndicate' of DCComics has become the defacto rulers of their own Earth. It's so boring they start their own rebellions against themselves just for the fun of smashing them down. 'Thankfully', the Qwardians get their mad on and decided to kill everything and everyone.
