* ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' has [[spoiler:Aether President Lusamine, who not only conducted amoral experiments ranging from [[HumanPopsicle cryogencally freezing Pokemon to keep them "beautiful"]] to almost killing poor Nebby when using its power to open up a portal to another dimension, but also was an [[AbusiveParents abusive mother]] to her children Gladion and Lillie, micromanaging every aspect of their day to day life and [[IHaveNoSon disowning them]] when they start to turn against her. Though in this case, she was also stated to be under the effects of [[PsychoSerum Nihilego's neurotoxins]], and Lillie says she was a genuinely good and caring mother before she researched too much into the Ultra Beasts.]]

* ''{{Carrie}}'''s mother Margaret White. [[TheFundamentalist A religious fanatic]] who [[ParalyzingFearOfSexuality 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.

Among her quirks are keeping track of ''just'' how many people have to die before Daphne's father becomes king of England. [[spoiler:When Daphne learns that all those people did, in fact, die, the first question out of her mouth is wondering if her grandmother did anything crazy]].

* Also from ''Creator/TerryPratchett'' is the person to whom the quote at the page's top refers. Daphne's grandmother from ''{{Nation}}'' is exactly as described.

* Queen Cersei Lannister from ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. Many of her villainous deeds stem from protecting her children, but mostly from a prophecy about her years ago. [[spoiler: She would outlive all of her children who would die as kings and queens, and she would be overthrown by a younger queen, and killed by one of her siblings.]]

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' example: Nanny Ogg is not very ''evil'', but she rules over the entire Ogg clan (a massive family whose family tree is described as being closer to a mangrove thicket). She's quite benign and verges on MyBelovedSmother for most of her family... except for her daughters-in-law, who cook for Nanny Ogg, clean for Nanny Ogg, and ''pray to the gods'' that Nanny Ogg doesn't come home from a vacation and find the slightest thing out of order. Famously, Nanny Ogg has ''never'' learned or remembered the names of any of her daughters-in-law.
** In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', having an evil mum is the backstory of one of Teatime's thugs. She's ''dead'' and he's still more afraid of her memory than he is of Teatime.

According to professional lockpick Mister Brown, this is entirely justified: he himself considers Teatime little more than a posturing thug next to her.

* [[spoiler:Ren Gyoukuen]] from ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic''. She claims responsiblity for the horrible deaths of her first husband and her two elder sons and later off-handedly wonders if she should kill her daughter as well. All in front of her youngest son, whom she taunts for being powerless to do anything about it. Said youngest son is very screwed up as a result...and that's almost certainly intentional on her part. She's also TheUsurper of an empire and the leader of an organization that wants to summon a GodOfEvil to kill everyone on the planet. [[spoiler:In Alma Toran, she also murdered someone who considered her a surrogate mother.]] Worst mother ever.
** [[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. 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...
