** However, this is ultimately subverted, as it's revealed this was Celestia's somewhat bias interpretation of her. Entropy's actually a bit more complicated than that: She's the End of Suffering, the End of Tyranny, ect. and has ZERO love for murderers and OTHER OmnicidalManiac types because She doesn't want anything to end before its time. [[spoiler:And it turns out she erased ____ because he was trying to kill off Nature's Law, which would've more or less wrecked the universe.]]

** Even Gemma doesn't hold a candle in the authority department to the one-shot character Vivica, the matriarch of a group of GangBangers made up of herself and her sons. When they go behind her back to handle a stolen guns deal so they could get her a birthday present, she is ''not'' happy, and immediately {{Dope Slap}}s her boys, who are clearly terrified of her.

* Barbara Eden (best known for ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'') played the Evil Matriarch of the Spellman Clan in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', whose appearances [[IncomingHam were usually preceded]] by something unexpectedly (insofar as the word can be applied in this show) freezing in anticipation of her icy demeanor. Elizabeth Montgomery, had she still been alive, might have been a more natural choice, as her character's mother on ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' (played by Agnes Moorehead) is archetypal of the Evil Matriarch.

* Beatrice Horseman, the mother of the eponymous protagonist of WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman, blames her son's birth for ruining her life and leaving her stranded in a horrible loveless marriage, which led her to becoming a horrible abusive mother and heavily contributing towards Bojack ecoming an extremely messed up individual with deep emotional scars. Season 4 goes into great detail explaining her backstory and humanizing her, but the show still makes it clear that regardless of what happened to her, the way she treated her son was not acceptable simply because she had a difficult life.

* In the ''ForgottenRealms'' franchise, Drow society is matriarchal, and Drow are AlwaysChaoticEvil, resuting in a whole lot of these.
