Roan Fel never really embraced the war or the idea of a unified galaxy. He went along with it as a political necessity. That's not what the Empire—what the galaxy—needs. The galaxy writhes in chaos and disorder. It requires a man of vision. I am that man of vision. I am the new Emperor.

A Usurper is an individual who takes many forms and has many reasons; perhaps he is the scorned relative of some monarch or ruler who believes they should be on the throne, or perhaps he is a member of a court or citizenry that wants more power than they deserve, or perhaps he is just a very sneaky individual looking for trouble.

The common goal of all usurpers is what they wish to achieve, namely the overthrowing of a head villain, hero, or neutral character or organization. Often, an usurper wants to take a position of great power, such as that of king or queen, but some usurpers are content with smaller conquests. They may go to great lengths to achieve their goals and feign loyalty until they are ready to strike.

A sub-type of usurper is "The Starscream", who is often shown as the second-in command or, in the smaller extent, minion of the Big Bad in certain evil organizations. In some cases where the Big Bad believes that The Starscream is very incompetent and doesn't deserve to take their position, it later turns out that The Starscream possesses capacities that make them able to take their position by force.

Classic examples of Usurpers are Scar in The Lion King, Zant in The Legend of Zelda, Valtor in Winx Club, Smaug in The Hobbit, King Ghidorah in Godzilla, Cozy Glow in My Little Pony, Koba in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Dawn Bellwether in Zootopia.
