* The Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse has Ta'a Chume, the queen of the Hapes Cluster, who assassinates her own sons so that Isolder would take the throne. Then she plans to seduce her future daughter-in-law's [[MarkHamill brother]] and kill him. ''Then'' after her son finds another woman and [[YouShouldKnowThisAlready Leia marries Han]], she tries to kill granddaughter and great-granddaughter because the former and her boyfriend (a.k.a. the latter's father) are Jedi. [[note]]An aside: Technically, Tenel Ka lets Jacen use her fleet in exchange for an heir. But male prostitution for females is common in myth, and these are [[AuthorAppeal Troy Denning]] books.[[/note]] Jacen {{Mind Rape}}s her, ending her tyranny. [[{{Foreshadowing}} Guess who becomes a Sith in a few years?]]

* The High Priestess from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' Season 5 is a truly brutal and chilling example of this trope. She is the leader of an all-female [[ReligionOfEvil cult]] that worships [[BigBad Aku]] and raised her seven daughters quite [[TykeBomb literally from birth]] to be her [[ChildSoldiers enforcers]]. She holds the dubious distinction of being [[KnightOfCerebus one of the darkest villains]] in the show due to lacking comedic quirks and LaughablyEvil traits from previous antagonists and setting the tone for [[DarkerAndEdgier Season 5]].

* ''ComicBook/XMen'': Mutant terrorist ComicBook/{{Mystique}}. She really does love her children, but Nightcrawler's the only one she hasn't stabbed or shot. Though to be fair, one of her kids was evil, but another was just trying to get Mystique out of jail, only for Mystique to break out and stick a knife in her gut for taking too long. Yes, really does love her children.
** Even Nightcrawler didn't escape unscathed. Only a few hours (at most) after he was born, she chucked him over a waterfall so that she could escape an angry mob without him weighing her down. Then again, the guilt over this incident is why she's probably not been ''as'' cruel to him as she's been to her other children.

* ''SilentHill'' seems to have a thing for this trope. Dahlia Gillespie and [[spoiler:Margaret Holloway]] could very well be friends with [[VideoGame/BioShock2 Sofia Lamb]], considering their willingless to torture, abuse, and sacrifice their own daughters in ways that makes the devil shiver. By far, the least awful mother in the series is [[spoiler:Walter Sullivan's mother]], who had the decency of just abandoning him in an apartment, rather than sacrificing him to some GodOfEvil, EldritchAbomination, TheDevil, or [[EpilepticTrees whatever the Order worships]].

* Tamaki's grandmother Shizune in ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' looks down on him because he can't live up to her restrictively high standards for her family, and forbids him from seeing his mother. Oh, and Tamaki [[spoiler:is currently the heir because his grandmother bought him, as Tamaki's mother Anne Sophie would quickly die in a life of poverty]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has Charlotte Linlin aka "Big Mom", one of the Four Emperors. Despite her horrifying physical appearance, she has 39 daughters ([[spoiler: one of which is to be married to [[RebelPrince Sanji]] as part of a political alliance with the Vinsmoke BigScrewedUpFamily]]) and 46 sons, each of which she marries off in order to extend her power. This doesn't stop her from [[OffingTheOffspring murdering one of her own children]] on a whim during a hunger-motivated, psychotic episode, plus actively encouraging her young children to be violent and psychotic- even against their own siblings-. Her son Charlotte Opera flat out notes that ''she'll consciously kill him herself'' if she finds out that he failed to stop [[spoiler: Jimbei.]]

* Beth Jarrett, from the novel/TheFilmOfTheBook ''Literature/OrdinaryPeople''. While her motivations are made a bit clearer in the novel (she explicitly says that she isn't able to forgive her youngest son Conrad for the messiness of his suicide attempt, believing that the sight of all that blood was meant to kill her, too), the movie keeps it vaguer, merely implying that the death of her favorite son has left her unable to love anyone. This, coupled with the fact that she's portrayed by a PlayingAgainstType MaryTylerMoore, makes her come across as a lot more evil.
