The villain's paramour is almost always defined [[SatelliteCharacter in terms of]] [[SatelliteLoveInterest her (or his) relationship to the villain]]. The role she plays in the plot, however, depends a great deal on how her character is defined. She may be [[LadyMacbeth just as evil as he is and actually share his goals]]. She could be [[TheDitz a ditz]] who doesn't really like evil things but just isn't bright enough to realize she's in a relationship with a very bad person. In stories where the villain is allowed to be sympathetic on some levels (GreyAndGrayMorality, PunchClockVillain, etc.), she might love him for his better qualities.

* Harley Quinn from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' is in an [[MadLove abusive relationship]] with the Joker. It's a connection she can never quite shake off even when Poison Ivy shows her she can be a supervillain without him, and Batman shows her she doesn't have to be a supervillain at all. In fact, it seems that every time Harley isn't Joker's Dark Mistress, [[LesYay she's Ivy's]]. In the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse it's only after [[spoiler:Joker dies]] that she's finally able to get out of it.

* ''Film/VeronicaGuerin''. Despite his infidelity, his possible abuse (he threatens to hit her in one scene, though it's not clear if he has before), and the fact that he's a heroin dealer, drug baron's John Gilligan's wife is clearly quite content with him, as evidenced by the way she smiles as he beats up the titular reporter when she shows up at their house.

* In ''Film/{{Madhouse}}'', film star Paul Toombes (VincentPrice) plays a character named Dr. Death. Paul is annoyed when the producer insists on giving Dr. Death a pretty assistant, and even more annoyed at how unprofessional the actress (who happens to be sleeping with producer) is.

* ''LeftBehind'': When Hattie Durham is introduced to BigBad Carpathia, she's extremely enamored of him. She kind of sours on him when he has her put in a women's prison after she gets pregnant (with his child).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/FaustLoveOfTheDamned'': Good lord, where to begin with M's mistress Claire? She tries to seduce basically anyone in sight and is very clearly a sexual sadist (she proudly calls herself a whore), even torturing the female lead with [[ElectricTorture electroshocks]]. Or as [[WebVideo/DiamandaHagan one reviewer]] described her, "Slutula, Princess Of The Night".
