Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Appearing most often in less realistic spy/action fiction, the Nebulous Evil Organisation is the natural enemy of Heroes "R" Us.
Often led by a Diabolical Mastermind, and sometimes developed enough to have its own bureaucracy, It is a vast, deep-pocketed machine with one apparent goal: The proliferation of evil across the globe, maybe with some personal profit on the side.
Like The Syndicate, it has a hand in every conceivable kind of nefarious dealing, from murder to terrorism to grand robbery to bad traffic. However, its criminal activities have some grand goal, almost always to Take Over the World or The End of the World as We Know It - which is, by sheer coincidence, nebulous enough that nearly any anti-good act can be shoehorned into it. Price-fixing of consumer goods, killing political leaders, blowing up buildings, stealing the gold from Fort Knox, and attacking the heroes for no stated reason at all are all things the organization gets up to. Expect vast armies of mooks, a secret underground lair, immense amounts of advanced technology and a clever name that often does away with any notion of subtlety.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })See also Nebulous Criminal Conspiracy, which the operations extend beyond one single organization. Compare and contrast Generic Doomsday Villain.

Cauldron from Worm, which has some vague, grand scheme to prevent the end of the world. Maybe. Regardless, said scheme involves manipulating politicians and government bureaus, kidnapping, assassinations, alternate universes, and supporting criminals whether they know it or not.

In the 1990s, The Hardy Boys introduced "The Assassins," a group of Terrorists Without a Cause with hundreds of mooks and elaborate bases and cloning technology, whose activities tend to enter Bond territory - for instance, the plot to use nuclear bombs to blow up the Ring of Fire volcanoes, reshaping the layout of the Earth's crust.

Hereti Corp from Sluggy Freelance lives and breathes this trope. They've been around for most of the strip's run, and we still have very little idea how they plan to take over the world, other than that it involves Oasis, a Dimensional Flux Agitator, and a chain of fast food restaurants.
The Minion Master arc introduced an international collection of these organizations, the most significantly featured are NoFun Corporation and Crushtro. The Minion Master is as yet still too nebulous (and perhaps too incompetent) to be identified as evil.

Wolfram and Hart from Angel. While at first they just appeared to be a particularly evil-aligned Occult Law Firm, it was soon revealed the company was the personification of evil on Earth. Oh, and possibly every other dimension (in slightly different forms) as well. In a twist, Wolfram and Hart doesn't just cause evil—-they actually get their power from it, specifically "man's inhumanity to man."

Not much is known about them, except they're widespread, have access to technology beyond even SHIELD's reach, and are attempting to create Super Soldiers for their own benefit. They're eventually revealed to be a branch of HYDRA.

Bloody Roar: The Tylon Corporation is the main source of antagonism throughout the series, though they're never actually seen at any point. All that's known about them is, that they're responsible for conducting inhumane experiments on zoanthropes for the purpose of creating the ultimate man-beast. And they've also created clones with stolen zoanthrope DNA - with the successful ones becoming part of their private army (the ZLFnote the Zoanthrope Liberation Front).

The Old World of Darkness had quite a few of these:
Pentex, from Werewolf: The Apocalypse, was a faceless multinational holding company whose goals were to perpetuate chaos, spread pollution and devastation, and ultimately prepare the charred remains of the earth for their Cosmic Horror overlords.
The Technocracy, from Mage: The Ascension, was a conglomerate of Mad Scientists, The Men in Black, and Corrupt Corporate Executives who actually were the secret world government in charge of everything. A bit of a variation in that they already feel they control everything, their main goals are to finally crush all remaining pockets of resistance to their control and to completely quash any lingering belief in the supernatural.
Slightly subverted in own sourcebook, which had rules for Technocratic Player Characters, implied most of the conflict would come from their own superiors instead of their "Traditional" enemies. It also broke the trend by laying out goals, motivations, and concrete plans that were reasonable *if* you accepted their world view as valid.
Also from Mage: The Ascension: the Nephandi, a group of corrupt and evil mages united mainly in their servitude to demonic beings. If it involves corruption, seduction or destruction, the Nephandi want a piece of it.

The Global Liberation Army in Command & Conquer: Generals is some kind of bland Al Qaeda expy with violent and criminal methods and largely undefined goals and objectives.

Nikita:
Division, the villains of the first two seasons. They're supposed to be a U.S. government intelligence agency, but in practice they're in the business of carrying out assassinations and terrorist attacks for money, with a side of arms dealing, drug trafficking, and money laundering. In Season 2, their leader goes full Blofeld and hijacks a Kill Sat to blackmail the President.
They're eventually replaced as the series' chief antagonists by the Invisible Hand, a particularly shadowy and mysterious group that's even more stereotypically Tuxedo and Martini: they use sci-fi gadgetry like Nanomachines and Latex Perfection masks and plot to replace world leaders with brainwashed body doubles.

The Cutey Honey franchise has Panther Claw, with innumerable guys in spiffy cat masks and cool hats and all manner of typically-female monsters, usually led by either Panther Zora or her subordinate Sister Jill. The original series gave us their goal early on as "the rest of the world doesn't deserve cool stuff, only us!" Different incarnations are different, though: In Cutey Honey The Live, Panther Claw was about making lots and lots of money through outlandishly evil means (sometimes Crazy Awesome, sometimes Nightmare Fuel), but always with a way to directly profit from the plot of the week.

Arch.rr in Roll to Breathe, the world's fictional equivalent to Apple, is secretly evil. They have connections to AIGIS, supervillains, and the criminal underworld, although the nature of CEO Archer Fletcher's plan isn't revealed until late in the first season.
It turns out Archer was simply acting under orders of an even more evil and nebulous organisation called The Suits, which the protagonists know next-to-nothing about.

The Nemesis Saga has the Genetic Offensive Directive, a black-ops genetic weapons program within DARPA originally founded to continue the horrific research started by the Japanese on Island 731 during WWII. Over time, however, it has grown into a N.G.O. Superpower, which seems to be experimenting with creating monsters purely for its own sake. And then it turns out they're actually a front created by the Ferox as a means of insuring that Earth is properly prepared to defend itself when it is inevitably drawn into their Forever War with the Aeros.

The Ten Rings in Iron Man is an evil organization whose exact goals and workings are never really explained. According to how they are described, their business is just, well, about anything evil that allows them to harness power or money. Iron Man 3 seemingly reveals that they're a front for AIM, who is trying to control both sides of the The War on Terror, but the All Hail the King short film reveals that AIM stole the name from an actual Ancient Conspiracy that's still active.

In the Splinter Cell series, Megiddo is a secretive, sinister organisation that plays a central role in the plot of Conviction. According to Tom Reed, Megiddo has great influence in Washington, Moscow, and Beijing. President Caldwell would not cooperate with Megiddo, so they plotted to assassinate her and replace her with the VP, who happens to be controlled by the organisation. Although Sam foiled their plot, the organisation remains at large. Megiddo does not play a role in Blacklist aside from being briefly mentioned in a "Gone Dark" mission.

Tentai Senshi Sunred features a Harmless Villain example in Florsheim, an Evil Organization of monsters bent on World Domination. Step 1 of their plan is to take out their Arch-Nemesis, Sunred; dozens, if not hundreds, of fights later, Florsheim remains winless and are probably in the 'negative' column where 'evil acts' are concerned, spending most of their time volunteering in the neighborhood. Sunred, on his side, retired from heroics years ago and now has to contend with Florsheim being pretty much the only friends he has left.

Claymore: The Organization. They are the ones sending out hunters to kill the Yoma, but they also are the ones behind the Yoma.
And the whole reason for it all is to create Awakened Beings to use as weapons in a giant, unseen war far away from the island the story takes place on. The entire island is just one big laboratory and testing ground.

Faust of Kamen Rider Build pulls a Decon-Recon Switch on the trope. At the beginning of the show, Faust and its Monster of the Week schemes are the show's central focus, only for this premise to fall apart by the end of the first quarter and Faust to go away in favor of more realistic villains like enemy nations with their own Riders or a greedy war profiteer and his Mega-Corp. By the end of the show, though, all of those villains have destroyed themselves through their own greed, and the last villain standing takes their resources for himself to effectively resurrect Faust.

Resident Evil had the infamous Umbrella Corporation. It took fifteen games, some comics, and a complete novelization before we finally learned the goal of their leader was not to be as evil as possible but to become a God and rule over all of humanity in a new world order. NEO Umbrella from Resident Evil 6 are even worse. They gleefully (and intentionally) do all the evil stuff Umbrella pulled, with only the objective of turning the world into one where anarchy and chaos reign supreme.

The Liar Game Tournament Office. A shady organization out to make a profit, they manage to secure 100 million yen (about US$1.5 million) for each of the participants in the first round (that's US$1.9 trillion).

James Bond:
SPECTRE - the SPecial Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion. In the novels, this role was mostly filled by the real-life Soviet organization SMERSH note Even then, SMERSH was something of this trope, as the real-life SMERSH had been long since disbanded, having only been active as an anti-deserter unit of the NKVD during the war, but SPECTRE showed up late in the series. Probably the ur-example.
QUANTUM has this role in Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace. Though, they're supposed to be SMERSH from the books. Spectre reveals them to be a branch of SPECTRE.

On Mr. Robot, Elliot and Fsociety view Evil Corp (actually E Corp) as this, however it seems to be a run-of-the-mill Mega-Corp. The "top one percent of the top one percent" that Elliot warns us about in the pilot episode turns out to be more than just a deranged conspiracy theory. Episode "402 Payment Required" elaborates on this, and Price reveals to Elliot that Whiterose founded the group, named the Deus Group, after collapse of the Soviet Union. Its members were under the impression that it was a cooporative effort to shape the world for profit. This is a ruse, and the group was created to facilitate Whiterose's "project" and the annexation of the Congo. The members of the group are subservient to Whiterose, or are replaced by someone who will be.

The Stormlight Archive is fairly thick with conspiracies, with the result that several High Fantasy versions of this exist therein, including the Diagram, the Sons of Honor, the Skybreakers, and the Ghostbloods. The first three all have a fairly Knight Templar-ish slant, to various degrees (the Diagram's leader Taravangian follows a convoluted plot to become ruler of the world because he believes it's the only way to save humanity; the Sons of Honor want to bring about the apocalypse so that the Heralds of the Almighty will come back, and the Skybreakers seek to brutally enforce their own idiosyncratic ideas of justice, including executing all Surgebinders), and it's still uncertain what the Ghostbloods want, except that they have agents all over the world and are more than willing to lie, cheat, steal, extort, and kill in service to their goals.

They are the true force responsible for orchestrating the Savage Crisis, as Dawn Bellwether is a member, along with her fellow co-conspirators Kyle Hayworth and Jayson Talon III. Their desired end goal is nothing less than the total subjugation of all the world's predators and any prey mammals sympathetic to them, and are willing to use any tactics necessary to achieve that goal.

Fallout has the Talon Company from 3 and the Gunners from 4. They're ostensibly mercenaries, but we never see anybody hire them (for instance, to take out the raider camps outside of every single town), nor do they appear to have the infrastructure to support the hundreds of well-equipped troops they deploy. They have no role in the plot and only exist to trouble the player character and occasionally his/her allies. Talon Company is a particularly egregious example, as the reason they come after the player character is explicitly because their unnamed employer thought that the player was being too nice. Really.

Every Showa Era Kamen Rider series had a massive organization with worldwide influence and little evidence of what they really wanted to accomplish (other than the fact that it required a lot of death and destruction.) Namely:
Shocker from Kamen Rider. In Kamen Rider: The First, the organization's name is short for the Sacred Hegemony Of Cycle Kindred Evolutional Realm. After their first major defeat at the hand of the Double Riders, the organization was reformed into Gel-Shocker.
Destron in Kamen Rider V3.
Government Of Darkness, often shortened to simply GOD, from Kamen Rider X.
Geddon and later the Garanda Empire from Kamen Rider Amazon.
Black Satan, later replaced by Delza Army, from Kamen Rider Stronger.
Shocker is once again reformed in the form of Neo-Shocker in Kamen Rider: Skyrider.
Dogma Kingdom in the first half of Kamen Rider Super-1, later replaced by Jin Dogma for the second half.
Gorgom in Kamen Rider BLACK.
From Kamen Rider Decade onward, Shocker becomes the franchise's go-to for crossover movie villains. They sometimes rebrand in the process, such as calling themselves Dai-Shocker or Super Shocker, but nearly any movie that features all of the Riders in a crossover and doesn't initially present Shocker as the antagonist is almost certainly going to be Hijacked by Ganon by the end of the movie.
Foundation X acts as a Greater-Scope Villain for shows beginning with Kamen Rider Double. While they don't appear in every show, when they do appear it's usually suggested that they have their fingers in every pie as financial backers or researchers for other villainous groups, giving them access to all of the tools those prior villains had. Their own plans usually revolve around an individual agent of the Foundation combining the powers from multiple shows to turn himself into a Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot of evil.
Faust of Kamen Rider Build pulls a Decon-Recon Switch on the trope. At the beginning of the show, Faust and its Monster of the Week schemes are the show's central focus, only for this premise to fall apart by the end of the first quarter and Faust to go away in favor of more realistic villains like enemy nations with their own Riders or a greedy war profiteer and his Mega-Corp. By the end of the show, though, all of those villains have destroyed themselves through their own greed, and the last villain standing takes their resources for himself to effectively resurrect Faust.

Chrysalis from The Invisible Man TV series. They were so nebulous that one of the Agency's main goals towards them was figuring out exactly what their goal was.

Pentex, from Werewolf: The Apocalypse, was a faceless multinational holding company whose goals were to perpetuate chaos, spread pollution and devastation, and ultimately prepare the charred remains of the earth for their Cosmic Horror overlords.

Odisea Burbujas has CYDA, Spanish for Contaminadores y Destructores Anónimos [Polluters and Destroyers Anonymous], notice that CYDA in Spanish sounds exactly like SIDA (AIDS), the series was from the late 70s and early 80s so this could be a coincidence.

Danganronpa: The Ultimate Despair are the ones responsible for the Mutual Killing Games. Initially a small cult founded by popular high school Fashionista Junko Enoshima, they are a group that seeks to spread despair across the world. To this end, they infiltrated Hope’s Peak Academy, killed multiple students and faculty, and recruited the experiment Izuru Kamukura to their cause- with him on their side, they became unstoppable and caused mass rioting, leading to The Tragedy. As of the main story, they have become The Empire ruling over the post-Tragedy world, and employ tactics like Brainwashing, robot invasions, and the titular televised killing game to control the population.

Blindspot has the shadowy organization behind covering Jane in tattoos, wiping her memory, and dumping her in Times Square for the FBI to find. It's so secretive that we don't even know its name (in Season 2, it's dubbed "Sandstorm", but that's just what the NSA calls them), and all we know about their goals is that they view America as hopelessly corrupt and seek to destroy it and start over.

Yami from Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple. As explained over various chapters (including here), they have their hands in everything from weapon sales to the military to governmental influence, and enough funds to potentially be a self-sustaining nation. Their intention is to preserve and promote the "Satsu-jinken" (killing fist) style of martial arts, a goal they've pursued since their initial formation after World War II because several martial arts masters died during that war. Additionally, the group is known by several names worldwide, including "L'Obscurite" in France, with "Yami" being its Japanese name (both words mean "darkness" in their respective languages). The organization is divided into two factions, one side consisting of weapons specialists and the other side focusing on empty-hand martial arts. At the very top of Yami's structure is the "One Shadow Nine Fists" group, which consists of Yami's ten strongest empty-hand martial artists; the eponymous "One Shadow" is the most powerful being in the entire organization.
While Yami as a whole espouses the killing-fist philosophy (with their members serving chiefly as assassins-for-hire), the One Shadow Nine Fists leadership core is made up of members who are the most skilled at teaching disciples, as opposed to simply being the best at fighting; in fact, on one occasion it's noted that if the latter condition was the only criterion for membership into the Nine Fists, there would be too much infighting and Yami would destroy itself.
Interestingly, very few characters in Yami are actually amoral people: because the "good-teacher" attribute is mandatory to qualify for the One Shadow Nine Fists, several of the ten martial artists in the group come across as being not so much evil as simply being dedicated to their philosophy—once the reader gets to know their personalities—and in fact a number of them still have certain moral guidelines that they will not violate, chief among them the silent agreement with Ryozanpaku that a master should never interfere with his/her student's battles with another student and should never interrupt or intervene in a fight between two masters.

Pokémon:
Team Rocket. Though some of its individual members in the anime do have concrete goals in mind (usually some sort of money-making scheme), the organization as a whole, particularly its management, falls under this.
Teams Magma, Aqua, and Galactic can also be classified as this, but those organizations have shifted from the more Syndicate-like criminal organization that Team Rocket was to outright Well Intentioned Extremism.
The views of Team Galactic might fit more as Utopia Justifies the Means with the leadership sometimes bordering on Omnicidal Maniac.
Team Plasma are a band of Well Intentioned Extremists whose leader, N, seeks to separate Pokémon from humans, but the true mastermind Ghetsis, plans on using the organization so that he can take control of the region.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse has the Cooperative, the mysterious organization that built the fallout Outposts. And while their interest in the survival of the human race should make them the good guys, there's a very ominous feel to them, not helped at all by the fact that Michael Langdon — aka The Anti-Christ — is a prominent member. The penultimate episode, "Fire and Reign", finally reveals that the Cooperative is quite literally The Illuminati under a rebranded name, and that its members received their extreme wealth and influence by selling their souls to Satan, thus enabling Michael to use them to bring about the titular apocalypse.

Child of the Storm has HYDRA, as per usual, and though we get an insight into their operations, they're actually considerably more frightening and effective than usual - particularly once Lucius Malfoy decides that Baron Von Strucker is now part of the problem. It doesn't hurt that they've got the Winter Soldier on a leash and are allied with a Loki level necromancer called Gravemoss. That said, they aren't invincible and are liable to make mistakes - especially once the Winter Soldier slips his leash.
Then there's the rather more nebulous and disturbing Red Room, a formerly defunct Soviet organisation, which isn't even glimpsed until the sequel. Only occasional references that make it clear that pretty much everyone (even HYDRA) is afraid of it, a brief appearance by a few of its less competent operatives and the presence of the Winter Soldier and Natasha, both of whom are products of the Red Room, and in chapter 70, mentions of HYDRA assaulting what Word of God confirmed was a Red Room facility and disappearing, confirm that it actually exists. However, again, it's not invincible, with Ivan Petrovitch noting how it once tried to attack Simon Pietrovitch's Archangel base. Since Pietrovitch was a member of the Senior Council of the White Council and Asskicking Equals Authority very much applies, this was an idea so bad it was awful. Then, in the sequel, they kidnap Harry, with ambitions to turn him into 'the Red Son', the successor to the Winter Soldier. This idea works... for a short while. Then it backfires, spectacularly.
Weapons Plus (specifically, Weapon X) is also mentioned, with Alexander Pierce suggesting that Charles Xavier dealt with them when they came after Logan.
The Hellfire Club, specifically the Inner Circle, has a habit of using their influence to manipulate world events in their favour - in between Magneto's spirited attempts to wipe them out, that is.
The Death Eaters carried some touches of this, with Lucius Malfoy being noted as having an expansive spy network and fingers in every pie.

Giant Robo's Big Fire, an evil organisation who's only goal is absolute world domination. "Together, allegiance or death! Big Fire!"
Amusingly enough they actually end up helping the Heroes when someone even worse comes along.

Theseus's company, Spencer Industries, exists as this in Adam R. Brown's science fiction series, Alterien.
Oberon's company, NGT (New Genesis Technologies), starts looking like this after it becomes a global corporation.
Sol 3 United later fills this role. It is the corporation of the Alteriens Oberon and Helena created.

QUANTUM has this role in Casino Royale (2006) and Quantum of Solace. Though, they're supposed to be SMERSH from the books. Spectre reveals them to be a branch of SPECTRE.

The SPY Fox adventure games has the Society for Meaningless Evil Larceny Lying and Yelling. Or, S.M.E.L.L.Y. This causes a bit of confusion when an important item of theirs is found in a trash can.

In Shy this role is taken by the mysterious Amalareiks who oppose the heroes of the world and serve the series Big Bad Stigma. They share his goal to destroy the current world and create a new one without adults, but how they want to reach that goal remains unknown.

Mage: The Awakening has the Seers of the Throne, mages who follow/worship the Exarchs, all-powerful mages who ascended to the Supernal Realms and screwed things up for everyone else in the Fallen World in the process. They believe that magic should only belong in the hands of the worthy ("worthy" meaning "those whose goals align with the Exarchs"), and work to encourage a generally crappy atmosphere in order to discourage uncontrolled Awakenings, mainly through anti-intellectualism, dogmatism, and paranoia.

M.A.S.K. has the Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem (VENOM). Unusually for cartoons at the time, VENOM's goals are less about world domination and more about profiting from illegal activities and stealing legendary cultural relics to sell. Interestingly, later iterations of the G.I. Joe toy line would establish VENOM as being a branch of Cobra.

A few of these exist in the New World of Darkness as well:
Vampire: The Requiem has both Belial's Brood and VII. The Brood are demon-worshippers and anarchists who believe the Beast is a fragment of divine consciousness imprisoned by Humanity. The best way to get close to the Beast is to do awful, awful things — which often makes them a pain in the ass for other Kindred, as those awful things will draw attention to them. VII is even more nebulous — all anyone knows about them is they kill other vampires for some reason. Even attempts to crack into their heads via telepathy only turn up "VII" branded into their minds. There's even a whole book devoted to VII that offers up three different solutions for their origins, and several others are peppered throughout the line.
Mage: The Awakening has the Seers of the Throne, mages who follow/worship the Exarchs, all-powerful mages who ascended to the Supernal Realms and screwed things up for everyone else in the Fallen World in the process. They believe that magic should only belong in the hands of the worthy ("worthy" meaning "those whose goals align with the Exarchs"), and work to encourage a generally crappy atmosphere in order to discourage uncontrolled Awakenings, mainly through anti-intellectualism, dogmatism, and paranoia.

In Equestria: A History Revealed, according to the Lemony Narrator, there is a secret organization known as the Echelon, which controls all of Equestria behind the scenes, and was created by Celestia herself. Of course, at this point, it's been established that most of her theories were made through Insane Troll Logic and blatant disregards for common sense, so this claim is questionable.
According to her, the organization is responsible for creating a parade out of nowhere to distract a young Rainbow Dash from anti-Celestia public speeches and deliberately setting up the friendship problems of the show's episodes through their socioeconomic power to build the mane six's friendship, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the organization's existence.

Arachnos, which is also the government and standing army of a Caribbean island nation, and has every kind of mook and villain you can imagine. (and it employs all player-created villains) The Council too. (which has a rivalry with Arachnos)
The Malta group and the Council. The Malta group has defined goals, though (draconian restrictions on superpowered individuals, or just eliminating them entirely), so they may not count. The Council, on the other hand, is a pretty generic neo-fascist group with no particular goals beyond "be evil".

Medical Mechanica in FLCL are the Greater-Scope Villain of the series, and the viewer is only given tiny scraps of information about them. Their front is a business creating "medical machines" (which also double as Killer Robots), but they also apparently plan to iron out all free thought on Earth with a giant clothing iron, and they've captured legendary Space Pirate Atomsk for some unknown reason.

From Kamen Rider Decade onward, Shocker becomes the franchise's go-to for crossover movie villains. They sometimes rebrand in the process, such as calling themselves Dai-Shocker or Super Shocker, but nearly any movie that features all of the Riders in a crossover and doesn't initially present Shocker as the antagonist is almost certainly going to be Hijacked by Ganon by the end of the movie.
