* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* In the Anime/FullmetalAlchemist fanfiction [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5998743/1/Asylum_rewritten Asylum]], Lust is a nurse. Predictably, she's also this. "I wouldn't be so foolish as to pin me with the stereotypes of my profession, if I were you... I don't feel compassion, and especially not for the condemned."

* Nurse Davis from ''Film/TheSnakePit'' is mean and petty and in one scene essentially proves the mental patient she hates into a relapse.

* ''Assignment Gestapo'' by Creator/SvenHassel. [[DumbMuscle Tiny]] falls in love with the (so-called) milder version, because she's the first woman he's met who's tough enough not to take any abuse from him.

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