* ''{{Carrie}}'''s mother Margaret White. [[TheFundamentalist A religious fanatic]] who [[PathologicalFearOfSexuality fiercely abhors everything even slightly related to femininity and female sexuality]], and who sees her psychic daughter as nothing but an abomination and a [[ChildByRape shameful reminder of that one dreadful time when her husband had his way with her]]. [[BullyingADragon Needless to say]], this ends horribly.

* Queen Bavmorda in ''Film/{{Willow}}'' is not only an evil queen but a bad mother.

* Queen Bavmorda in ''Film/{{Willow}}'' is not only an evil queen but a bad mother.mother to her daughter Sorsha.



* In ''Literature/ABrothersPrice'', all organized crime is expected to be managed by an evil matriarch, as families are very close, and usually all members of a family are brought to court for a crime one of them committed. Rank is determined by age, the eldest sister in a family is named Eldest and becomes Mother Elder when she has her first child. The evil matriarch in any given family of criminals is therefore the Mother Elder. Strictly enforced discipline, and the fact that criminal individuals are thrown out of lawful families, more or less guarantees that a family that turns to crime will have an evil matriarch in charge. [[spoiler: The villains actually murdered their own mothers (who were in on the conspiracy, so likely evil matriarchs themselves) in order to shut them up, as the family "doesn't age well" and tends to senility. The main villain has already one child, and is the Eldest of the family, so she is well on her way to become an evil matriarch herself.]]

** True to form ''Literature/TheToughGuideToFantasyland'' lists this as one of the most vicious varieties of bad queen you will meet in Fantasyland.

** [[spoiler: Subverted, actually! Gyokuen ''used'' to be a kind and good mother in the past, but she was subjected to DemonicPossession by Arba (the leader of the evil organization Al-Thamen and pretty much the BigBad) and shit hit the fan from then on.]]

Gyokuen ''used'' to be a kind and good mother in the past, but she was subjected to DemonicPossession by Arba (the leader of the evil organization Al-Thamen and pretty much the BigBad) and shit hit the fan from then on.]] Arba herself is an exaggeration of this trope. First, she was the mother figure to TheHighQueen Sheba, then she killed her cold-bloodedly despite Solomon and Sheba believed her so much. Then after Ugo moved the people of Alma Torran to the current world, she comes along with Al-Thamen. Unlike the other Al-Thamen members however, she can maintain almost all of her power [[MagicKnight(be it magical of physical) ]] , with possessing her own children, and if her previous vessel have grown too old, she will move to the child of the previous vessel. She prefers women as her vessel, but she can possess men too if she didn't have a daughter at any generation.]]Truly a wicked mother...

* Alcmene in Hallmark's made-for-TV movie ''[[Series/{{Hercules}}''. The mother of Hercules received some AdaptationalVillainy, attempting to have her son Hercules murdered in his crib while he s still a kid, and after failing that, conspire to make his life a living hell. While she is mostly sympathetic example as result of being raped by Zeus (who brutally raped her in this version, instead of taking the form of her husband to bed her), she is far from a saintly person, serving as a mad high priestess that sacrificed men in the name of Hera.

* ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'': [[BigBad Precia Testarossa]] is the definitive Evil Matriarch, especially in the TV series where she is nothing but cruelty incarnate when it comes to her daughter Fate. Later adaptations would make her more sympathetic (especially ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaInnocent INNOCENT]]'', which completely removed the evil aspect and made her a full on DotingParent).
