* In ASongOfIceAndFire, Stannis Baratheon more or less admits that he would be a king of this type if he manages to win the throne in the current civil war. The populace would hate his guts because he's a stern, taciturn KnightTemplar, the nobility would hate him because of his complete unwillingness to budge on so much as what appetizers to serve at dinner, and his own supporters and bannermen would hate him because he would treat them just as harshly as he would his own enemies. The only reason he even ''wants'' the throne stems from the reason he would be so bad at it: as his elder brother's heir following the former king's [[BrotherSisterIncest illegitimate children]], he sees the throne as legally his, despite the fact that almost no one, including himself, actually wants him to hold it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', Lois Lane visits an alternate reality where Superman and Lex Luthor joined forces to take over Metropolis and seem to have a Zero Percent Approval Rating.
** [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] in the series finale, where Superman ''expects'' this to be the case when he throws a beaten {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} to his oppressed masses, but is shocked to find that the people of Apokolips ''love'' the tyrant and tenderly help him to safety.

** Also appears in an alternate timeline in ''Justice League''. In that timeline, Luthor kills the Flash, which causes the Justice League to go rogue and take over the world (even going and changing their group name to the Justice Lords), and because of it, the public hates them.
*** They were always known as the Justice Lords (we learn that when Batman points out their counterparts through the dimensional viewer and notes that they call themselves the Justice LEAGUE, if they'd originally been known as the Justice League he'd have said that they STILL call themselves the Justice League).

Averted by the Demon Empire and Maledict, which despite its tyranny is [[BlackAndGrayMorality widely considered better than the alternative]].

* The ''entire world'' hates Superman's Regime in ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' due to its severe authoritarian nature and global scope, though most are too afraid to stand up to it. Even some of the Regime's own high-ranking members start to question the its level of power, and some start hating Superman himself since he treats them so disrespectfully.

* This trope is played straight in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' oneshot fanfiction, ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/35530/Adored/ Adored]]'' with Queen Chrysalis. A Changeling monarch's best popularity indicator here is their ability to sense the love and adoration of their subjects. When she can sense ''zip'', this starts to worry her. The causes of this fall from grace are put down to her increasing ineptitude, incompetence and over-reliance on a Rasputin stand-in, as well as the ''[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E26ACanterlotWeddingPart2 obvious...]]"
