* Played with but averted in ''[[Literature/TalesOfDunkAndEgg The Sworn Sword]]'' with Lady Rohanne Webber aka the "Red Widow". She is undeniably a FemmeFatale, but all her husbands really did die of war or natural causes. Her reputation is a combination of a smear campaign and the ruthless front she maintains to survive as a female ruler of her lands.

* ''Series/{{Community}}'': PlayedForLaughs. During the [[SeriousBusiness absurdly serious paintball game]] in "Modern Warfare," [[spoiler:Jeff and Britta]] have sex. She immediately turns on him (though they get interrupted before she can "kill" him) so that she can win the game. She insists that she didn't sleep with him to kill him, she slept with him and now, unrelated, she is going to kill him. He notes that it's suspicious how skilled she is at putting on her panties with one hand while holding a gun in the other.

* In ''Webcomic/TheLettersOfTheDevil'', [[spoiler:Susan says, "Don't worry 'bout me, hon. It's not the first time I've done this," right after shooting her husband in the chest. This confirms an earlier L Letter clue, which suggests that one of the Castors killed their previous spouse.]]

Compare {{Yandere}}, ComfortingTheWidow, WidowWoman (for other widow tropes), WillAndInheritanceTropes. When a pregnancy is involved, this intersects with ConceiveAndKill. See also LiteralManeater, which is an actual monster that uses the disguise of a woman to lure in mates.

** ''Fanfic/BlackSky'' shows her under a more heroic light, as she was HappilyMarried with her first husband... who died because of the Death Eaters. She didn't take it well and decided to marry, bankrupt and kill his killers one by one. Her home country Sabina considers her a heroin for this.

* The 1975 Music/AliceCooper song "The Black Widow" depicts this with a opening spoken-word part (by VincentPrice) carefully describing the female black widow spider's lethality and mating habits. Unfortunately, the song itself [[BrokenAesop negates this lesson]] both by making the spider character male and by depicting him as a DepravedBisexual.
