Would the higher-ranked monsters from various Kamen Rider series count? i.e. the Sonozaki Dopants from W, the Greeed from OOO, the Horoscopes from Fourze, etc.?

The trope explanation is not clear over whether the definition of a monster lord means that the monster lord in question is of the same type or species of the monsters it lords over. For instance, a number of the examples given are for one species of monster being superior to another species, but I got the impression that the monster lord was supposed to be a superior specimen of the same breed.

I think it's less about the biological relationship (especially since many works of fiction use inaccurate meanings of "species") and more about the power relationship of one monster ruling over other monsters.
