Tyrants, or Evil Rulers, are powerful villains who seek to conquer, or have already conquered, a certain area. Their territory can range from a city, to a particular region/country, to the entire world, to an entire galaxy or galaxies, to even the entire universe or cosmos. They often seek complete domination of whatever territories lie out of their influence but not always, for some are content to rule small to mid-sized territories and do not seek expansion on larger scales (this differs them from Imperialists and Totalitarians, who seek to reshape not only their own society but often the world itself (in some cases they even seek to reshape the universe itself).).

Examples include Sauron in the Lord of the Rings franchise, Frieza in the Dragon Ball franchise, and Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars franchise.
