Double Subverted: In reality, King Bubba the First is just an alias of the Emperor.
Parodied: Emperor Evulz is a total dunce who whines like a little baby when his Evil Plan goes south.
Zig Zagged: Emperor Evulz turns out to be a lesser threat than some of the others around him. He gets into frequent Enemy Mine situations with the Five-Man Band, but by the end of the episode, it's back to business as usual.
The conflict, great or small, has no one entity behind it. Even if there are villains in this setting, none is solely responsible for the mess or significantly more popular than the others. Instead, the conflict(s) come from their combined efforts and/or pure bad luck.
Enforced: "We need a source of conflict, and nothing says conflict like an evil overlord."
