* A variant appears in Myth/EgyptianMythology when Set sexually abuses his nephew Horus. Along with highlighting Set's depravity,[[note]]Mind you, the {{ancient Egypt}}ians weren't too squeamish about incest: many deities [[BrotherSisterIncest married their siblings]], as did [[RoyalInbreeding many pharaohs]]. The rape angle ''was'' considered depraved, though.[[/note]] this incideny also serves to degrade Horus. See, Horus was Set's ArchEnemy at the time because Set had killed Osiris, who was his own brother [[YouKilledMyFather and Horus's father]]. Ultimately, Horus gets the last laugh when his mother Isis (Set's sister) [[RevengeIsADishBestServed mixes some of Horus's semen into Set's food]].

* Baron Harkonnen from ''Literature/{{Dune}}'', who wants to molest both his nephew ''and'' his grandson. And when his memory-ghost or whatever-it-can-be-called takes control of his granddaughter's mind, SHE gets pretty squicky too. He's also pretty evil, but (per the trope) is not an EvilUncle. Weird, eh?

* Part of the backstory of ''Music/EvelynEvelyn'' is that, whilst living at an orphanage [[spoiler:that was actually a cover for a child pornography and prostitution ring]], the twins were regularly visited by a large number of "uncles." The girls were [[InnocentInaccurate too young to understand what was really happening]], but the proprietress of the orphanage kept up the pretense that the "uncles" were actual blood-related uncles whom the "nieces" had a duty to take care of.

She clarifies that what he really seems to be doing is going through her things in search of loose change, but the matter is never really resolved.
* Oscar Masan from ''VideoGame/GoneHome'' is the uncle to Katie's father, and certainly creepy. His old house, which he lived in [[TheHermit alone]] for twenty-one years, has plenty of hidden passageways, leading to rumors of ghost hauntings after his death. Letters and journals found in-game imply that he was also [[spoiler: a morphine addict that sexually molested his aforementioned nephew]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Voyeur}}'': At one point, the player can spy on a conversation between Reed and his niece, Chloe, in which Chloe drops the bomb that [[spoiler:Reed had raped her when she was fourteen.]]

Shades of this pop up in one of the early Agravaine eps of season 4... he doesn't actually molest anyone, given it's a family show, but he really gives the indication of wanting to try something with Gwen.

His uncle catches up to him and addresses him in a very eerie and uncomfortably affectionate manner that instantly kills Haschwalth's enthusiasm over making a friend. When Yhwach culls the local Quincy population, it's implied that Haschwalth is not upset by his uncle's death.

* Averted in, of all things, the Creator/CharlesAddams cartoons. Fester is both an uncle and ''extremely'' creepy, but the creepiness comes from his idiosyncrasies as an Addams rather than unhealthy attachment to Wednesday or Pugsley -- in fact, he's the closest thing to a CoolUncle that the two have.

* Karen/Charis's uncle in ''Literature/TheRobberBride'' takes this to its most logical, horrible extreme, continually raping her when she moves into his house aged nine.

Teppei makes Satoko cook, clean, and essentially act like a wife to him and he also makes her do some sleezy things, like having his niece wash his back for him.
