Added DiffLines:

* In Creator/IvanYefremov's ''Razor's Edge'' there's a bit character whom a protagonist (a qualified SuperDoc himself, but he cannot do SelfSurgery due to trauma location) visits to see a serious abscess on his hand. The woman evacuates the boil in the most painful and traumatic way, babbling about the need to [[MenDontCry man up and tough it out]], until the hero fied-shrinks her into admitting to slipping into sadism due to stress.

* Prison doctor Rei Takashima of the titular ''Manga/DeadmanWonderland'', though calling her "doctor" is putting it nicely. She gets sadistic pleasure removing the body parts of fully conscious Deadmen when they lose a {{Gladiator Game}}. She happily skips into the {{Moral Event Horizon}} when gleefully removing the right eyeball of badass former cop, Senji Kiyosama after losing to {{Troubled But Cute}} protagonist, Ganta. She's last seen creating a hideous abomination of combined forgeries (fake Deadmen who were former prisoners brainwashed into becoming drugged up killing machines) before being unceremoniously killed by the {{Ax Crazy}} Wretched Egg.

* Nurse Lois from Creator/FrankMiller's ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}: [[Comicbook/DaredevilBornAgain Born Again]]'' story arc is a gruff, intimidating nurse who supervises Nick Manolis' recovery. [[spoiler:She's also a mob enforcer for the Kingpin who breaks Ben Urich's fingers and kills Manolis.]]

** In "Sam Interrupted" when the Winchesters go [[GoAmongstMadPeople undercover in a mental hospital]], Dean lampshades the trope to the nurse who's giving him an initial examination. The nurse is quite friendly though [[spoiler:except she's the MonsterOfTheWeek.]]

* In "Down on the Farm", a ''[[Literature/TheLaundrySeries Laundry]]'' short story by Creator/CharlesStross, the Laundry's BedlamHouse is run by a deranged, [[spoiler:demonic]] 1960s mainframe called "Matron", and three robot "Sisters" slaved to it. As in ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', one of the nurses is called Nurse Ratchet.

* The uber-example of a comic version would be Creator/HattieJacques' character in the various ''Film/CarryOn'' films.

In terms of her origins, the Battleaxe Nurse has many. First is the {{Subversion}} of what the audience expects - nurses are supposed to be caring, right? This type of subversion is similar in its origins to the EvilClown trope - clowns are supposed to be associated with joy, and thus it creates a rich irony to associate them with terror. Likewise for the Battleaxe Nurse.

Another origin is by subverting the HospitalHottie trope - rather than conform to male fantasy, the Battleaxe Nurse crushes it.
