* ThemeNaming: "Baroness" follows the pattern of the Troll Ancestors' eight letter names. "Batterwitch" alludes to Feferi's (and presumably, her) Sgrub title, Witch of Life.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: More like Unhistorical Villain Upgrade: in RealLife Betty Crocker wasn't a villain because she never existed, she was a character made up by the Washburn Crosby Milling Company in 1921. Here, that character is a cover for the Condesce as she uses the Crocker Corporation to take control of Earth, wipe out humanity, and re-establish the dictatorship she had over the trolls.

Of course, that more or less means that she never existed in ''Homestuck'' either, unless you count "being an alias and disguise" as existing.

He has no alternate universe counterpart appear, he leaves no body left behind to resurrect, and any attempt to revive him via time travel would doom the timeline since doing so would prevent Lord English from existing, and he has used his own time travel to make himself an essential part of the alpha timeline.

A tyrant who gains power by enslaving the powerful and stealing from the vulnerable; she takes three major titles throughout her millennia of conquest.

Also known as "the Baroness" and "the Batterwitch," [[Characters/HomestuckGuardians the Condesce]] is Feferi's ancestor and Meenah's post-scratch iteration. She ruled Alternia with an iron fist for millennia, until she ended up being forced into servitude by Lord English.

On his command, she infiltrated Earth under the name Betty Crocker. She married Colonel Sassacre and founded Crockercorp, a company which would go on to monopolize everything from the baking industry to advanced robotics. As Betty Crocker, the Condesce carried out Lord English's agenda on both sides of the Scratch.

She eventually entered the B2 Session and usurped the queen of Derse, with the intent of stealing the session's Genesis Frog to recreate Alternia.

!!! Universal Tropes

to:

\n!!! Universal Tropes----



* TheArk: Before departing for Earth, the Condesce gathered thousands of endangered species from her homeworld and loaded them into a "red space ark", apparently in order to repopulate them.



* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: Her Imperious Condescension has an iron grip (with a healthy dosage of SubliminalSeduction) on post-Scratch Earth as Betty Crocker, who has taken over most facets of society.
* BeleagueredAssistant: To Lord English and she releases her frustration towards him by yelling at people or stabbing those who make a mistake while grooming her hair.



* BlingOfWar: As the Condesce, she's decked out head to toe in jewelry and wields a fancy golden double trident. She continues the tradition as the Black Queen of Derse, with the addition of the Prototyping Ring (though as a simple, plain gold band it's barely a drop in the ocean on top of the rest of her bling).



* TheCaligula: Went mad as the result of repeated botched attempts to recreate her old empire "in all its convoluted symbiotic glory." The Condesce ends up taking out her frustrations on humankind, of course.
* ChallengingTheChief: How she got the position.



* ComboPlatterPowers: Clockwork majyyks, (near) Immortality, Mind control, the vast resources of Alternian science, and being ''really'' good with her WeaponOfChoice.
** While she herself has some 'life' related powers, She was given Clockwork Magyyks by Lord English. She also has the powers of many other trolls, including psychic powers such as Telekinesis & Eye Beams like Sollux and Aradia and their respective ancestors, mind controls over animals like Tavros and The Summoner, and mind control over other sapient life forms like Mindfang and Vriska. These powers from other trolls portray themselves as a blinking zodiac symbol in her tiara. She also likely has exclusive powers as a fuchsia blood.

to:

* ChessMotifs: Her company's heavy use of red plays into her role of usurping the Black Queen, as red is often used interchangeably with black in traditional chess sets. (See also Literature/AliceInWonderland.)

* CoolStarship: The Condesce's flagship, the Battleship Condescension.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: To the extreme; through CrockerCorp, she eventually takes over the entire world.



* DamageSpongeBoss: She spends most of her battle on Derse holding her arms up to endure Fraymotifs, God Tier attacks and Sprite attacks.
* DistinguishingMark: Her AnimeHair. The first clue we have of her becoming the new Queen of Derse is Courtyard Droll mentioning the new Queen's grand and luxurious fluffy hair... [[CloudCuckoolander which he thinks is a hat]] (though hair is a foreign concept to carapace people).



%%* DuelToTheDeath: With the Handmaid



* EvilCounterpart: While Feferi wanted to care for the weakest creatures of Alternia and undo the violent system, this ancestor of hers only wants power to amass wealth and dominate anyone she can, to the point she was unsatisfied with oppressing the trolls of Alternia and set her sights on every planet in her galaxy.



* EvilOverlord

to:

%%* EvilMentor
%%* EvilOverlord
* EvilOverlordEvilutionaryBiologist: When her original plans to repopulate her race went bust, she resorted to experimenting with splicing human and Alternian DNA.
* ExpospeakGag: B2!Crockercorp refers to properties like Olive Garden and Bac-Os as "Feeding Chamber" and "simulated livestock flakes."



* FinalBoss: For John, Rose, Roxy, and Jane. Her defeat also occurs at the end of [S] Collide, making her the last villain to be defeated before the kids can finally finish their game of Sburb.
%%* FluffyTamer: Glb'golyb being the Fluffy.
%%* FourEyesZeroSoul
* GodSaveUsFromTheQueen: Her Imperious Condescension is a pretty horrendous ruler. She flies around the universe, cordially greeting new civilizations, and leaves her vast armies to rip them apart after she leaves. She's mentioned early on as seriously wanting to kill Feferi to avoid having to compete with her for the throne, and it's mentioned later that she's fought and killed a number of potential successors in the past, giving them equal terms in battle ''only'' because her lusus demanded it. She also ran humanity into the ground by trying to integrate troll aspects into their society. [[AxCrazy She did not give a shit about this.]]

%%* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty



* KickTheDog: Killed her children's dog on the Post-Scratch Earth just to spite them, even though they were only infants. It ended up propelling the young Grandma Harley to become the first member of LaResistance against her.



* LegallyDead: When Betty Crocker vanished without a trace on the pre-Scratch Earth, Grandpa Harley inherited her business empire. It's implied that she left that Earth to travel to the one created by the Scratch. Even on that Earth, she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and by the modern day is considered even by the heiress of the Crocker brand to be just a mascot.
* LivingForeverIsAwesome: Right up until the Troll Empire was wiped out at least... but she seems to have her hands full on Earth and Derse.



* MeaningfulInitials: The '''''B'''attleship '''C'''ondescension'', a giant red fork to a certain batterwitch's big red spoon... and [[TheUnreveal big red fork]].
* MegaCorp: After the Scratch, Crockercorp owns not just everything that the real-world General Mills owns or has once owned (e.g. Olive Garden) but is also involved in software, computer hardware, space colonization, and Gushers. They even managed to install [[Series/DinersDriveInsAndDives Guy Fieri]] (of all people) as [[RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman Chief Justice of the Supreme Court]].
-->"THE HEINOUS BATTERWITCH HAS HER GNARLED CLAWS IN EVERYTHING. What do Gushers have to do with baked goods anyway??"



* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Has adult-sized versions of Feferi's pointed teeth, and shows them off at any opportunity.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: There aren't many titles more domineering and vane than "Her Imperious Condescension."
* NobleDemon: One of her goals is to resurrect her near-extinct race, which is surprisingly noble for someone as wicked as she is - though it's heavily implied that she wants to apply the same sort of reign as she did on [[CrapsackWorld Alternia]].



* OffingTheOffspring: The Condesce and her heirs are expected to DuelToTheDeath over the throne whenever an heir reaches adulthood.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]. [[http://mspaintadventures.com/scratch.php?s=6&p=005963 The Condesce]] does all her delegating from her ship off in deep space. Her connection with her psychic lusus allows her to threaten entire castes of trolls with total extinction if they don't obey her, so she doesn't really need to go anywhere.
* PetTheDog: She did marry two iterations of Colonel Sassacre, which doesn't seem to be important to her agenda. At the very least, she loved him enough to let him die of old age/getting shot by his adoptive son rather than just kill him.



** She can control Jade.



* PsychicPowers: She's used technology to copy the psychic powers of several of the lower castes, including [[MindOverMatter Sollux's]], [[MindControl Vriska's]], and [[TheBeastmaster Tavros's]].



* SlasherSmile: Default expression.

to:

%%* SadistTeacher: To Nanna Egbert, passing on a love of baking without the genocidal tendencies.
* SigilSpam: The Betty Crocker logo appears in a few odd places in the pre-scratch universe, like Jade's dream robot, but the trope fully comes into effect in universe B2 where Betty Crocker is a MegaCorp with its claws in everything from baked goods to software to space colonization. And then on 11/11/11, the Betty Crocker spoon turns into the Battleship Condescension fork...
* SlasherSmile: Default expression.The Condesce is rarely depicted without a smug/sinister, shark-like grin.
* TheStarscream: Draconian Dignitary believes she has some contingency plans that Lord English doesn't know about, which is why she is implied to have captured Roxy.
* SubliminalSeduction: Betty Crocker products in universe B2 carry sinister subliminal messages telling users to obey and consume, to cease reproduction, to die, and to stay asleep. They [[ShoutOut bear a resemblance]] to similar messages from the movie ''Film/TheyLive''.



* ThemeNaming: "Baroness" follows the pattern of the Troll Ancestors' eight letter names. "Batterwitch" alludes to Feferi's (and presumably, her) Sgrub title, Witch of Life.



%%* VillainWithGoodPublicity: On Post-Scratch Earth and on Derse.
* VillainWorld: Post-scratch Earth seems to be this, under her control. In the future she rules openly.
