* ''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).

* ''Literature/PercyJackson'' Gaea is the ultimate evil matriarch—besides manipulating her children into killing their father, and then manipulating her grandchildren into fighting her children in myth, in,the series she is indirectly responsible for all the happenings of the first series (being the mother of Kronos) and directly responsible for all of the second: she leads the Giants, and the Titans are still in Tartarus, bitterly complaining that when their mother realizes that they are her first and better children they will be freed again. She takes the 'Matriarch' part pretty seriously too, and tries to manipulate her family members all the time— she once asked Calypso, as her granddaughter, to kill [[spoiler:Leo]] in exchange for her freedom.
* ''Literature/TalesOfTheFrogPrincess'' [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]] Olivine becomes this after the curse affects her when Chartreuse and Grassina are in their mid teens, and makes their lives miserable and tragic. While she doesn't plot anything evil on a large scale (she's already the queen) she doesn't allow her daughters to attend their father funeral and turns them into animals just to be cruel. On at least one occasion Chartreuse was very nearly caught and killed as a turtle. Oh, and she turns 14-year-old Haywood, Grassina's fiancé, into an otter. For at least fifteen years. And when they finally break that spell, [[spoiler: they find Olivine has rigged it so that when he turned back into a man, Grassina would fall under her own curse, turning her into an ugly, evil old hag just like her mother.]]

* While Frances Clara Censordoll of ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' physically ''can't'' become a mother [[spoiler: thanks to her own mother removing her reproductive organs in a form of female castration]], she regards herself as the matriarch of the entire town of Moralton. A town she is constantly playing MoralGuardian in. She once even ran for town "mayor-triarch". [[spoiler: She withdraws upon realizing her opponent Clay has a massive OedipusComplex and plays up to it to become his 'mommy' and manipulate him that way.]]

** Jean-Armand, AKA Nephandus, has a mother much like this: while he loves her to death, she's not only controlling and dismissive of her son, she comes across as a total flake, and even ''he'' congratulates Nacht and She-Beast on dealing with her. In a much less comedic example, Nacht's mother [[spoiler:(who actually killed her birth mother in order to raise her)]] is pure, absolute evil.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Cersei Lannister is a {{deconstruction}} of one for Lannister-Baratheons until her father ThePatriarch arrives in the city. While she genuinely loves her children (despite being an abusive mother) and would do anything to protect or avenge them, some of her actions prove to be a greater threat to the safety of her children than those of her enemies (who are often far more intelligent and competent than she is). In the end her last remaining child commits suicide because of her, but by that time Cersei is too far gone to even care.

* Ragyo Kiryuin from ''Anime/KillLaKill'', the powerful head of the Kiryuin Conglomerate and GreaterScopeVillain of the series. A sinister EvilutionaryBiologist that has used her own family in experiments and subjects her daughter to rather.....[[ParentalIncest disturbing]] displays of affection, she is a candidate for Worst Anime Mother. Little surprise that [[spoiler:Satsuki stabs her in the back. Too bad it didn't take, since she's a Life Fiber-fused monster that can reattach her own ''head'']]. [[spoiler: And then there's what she did to her ''other'' daughter, and her husband, and...]]

** [[spoiler: Rumplestiltskin's]] mother is shaping up to be this. She is a legendary dark magical being mentioned several times throughout the show before her appearance. Thus far, her crimes include [[spoiler: [[InvasionOfTheBabySnatchers stealing babies]] on a regular basis, [[ParentalAbandonment abandoning her child as an infant]], laughing in his face and throwing him to the ground when he confronts her as an adult, [[AdultFear stealing his and Belle's infant son]], raising said infant son away from his parents to be evil and kill Emma, and hospitalizing the [[BigGood Blue Fairy]].]] And that's in the span of ''two episodes''. It's likely [[GreaterScopeVillain season 6B will make the list even longer.]] She's a very literal matriarch too as she is [[spoiler: also Neal's grandmother and Henry's great-grandmother, thereby making her indirectly related to the entire cast.]]
