* Helena Cassadine from ''Series/{{General Hospital}}''. Head of a Greco-Russian almost-royal family, after the death of her not-so-loved husband Mikos, decided to get revenge and started killing for sport. Her unforgettable rivalry with GH's most famous super couple Luke and Laura, began when she cursed them at their wedding in the 80's. She reappeared again in 1996, with all the intentions to make life miserable to evreyone in her family, especially her much hated son Stefan and her bastard step-daughter Alexis. Usually, when something evil happens in Port Charles, it's her fault. She stole, lied, cheated, killed, swapped DNA results, and even hibernated her beloved son Stavros (who everyone had thought had died, and thanks to her, appeared very much alive in 2001). Mortal enemy to Luke Spencer who tried to kill her more than once.

* Barbara Eden (best known for ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'') played the Evil Matriarch of the Spellman Clan in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', whose appearances [[InComingHamwere 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.

** Also 'Grandmother', of the [[BigScrewedUpFamily extended Valois family]]. Even the most scheming and murderous of the family seem to be scared of her. She seems fairly benign so far, but the reactions of people around her suggest that this isn't the case.

** It's heavily implied that [[spoiler: Flemeth's treatment of Morrigan is more of ToughLove, judging her sorrowful reaction when Morrigan (particularly if she becomes a mother) angrily states that she will never be the mother Flemeth was to her/calmly telling Flemeth that Kieran will be better off without her just as she was better off without Flemeth.]]
