* In the Literature/StarTrekNovelVerse, the Ruling Queen, T'Rehu - Romulus' first and only dictator. The trope is perhaps particularly appropriate here, because while it's never made explicit, there is the possible implied suggestion that Romulans fear single female rulers more than male ones - simply because of T'Rehu. Both sexes serve in government and in the senate, in more or less equal numbers, yet interestingly the praetor is usually male. Possibly female senators find it harder to ascend to the position due to a bias connected with this trope. This is likely only subconscious - there are no actual legal restrictions and we do see some female praetors, but the disparity is interesting in a culture that otherwise demonstrates equivalence between genders at all levels of government. See in particular ''Literature/StarTrekVulcansSoul''.

* Three [[DishingOutDirt [=SandWing=]]] dragons in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' are sisters named Blaze, Blister, and Burn who plunged the dragon world of Pyrrhia into a twenty-year war to fight for the throne. All three of them are cruel dragons (though Blaze is nicer, but she's [[TheDitz quite idiotic]]), and [[spoiler: Thorn, Sunny's mother,, becomes queen instead. Burn dies from a viper bite, Blister gets blown up, and Blaze eventually submits to her new queen]].

* Queen Nia of the Ice Nation from ''Series/{{The 100}}'' is the only known queen of the setting (in fact, the only known monarch) and is by far the most ruthless faction leader shown. When she was at war against the other Grounder clans, she had Lexa's lover tortured for information before and killing and beheading her. She begrudgingly accepted to join Lexa's coalition after defeat, and only pays lip service to her commandments. In present time, she still plots to grab as much power as possible by plotting against Lexa, openly questioning her integrity and authority, putting a bounty on one of Lexa's closest allies (and LoveInterest) and slaughtering innocent Sky People just to force her to react.

* Cersei Lannister, in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire,'' is a cruel and paranoid despot who isn't [[OutGambitted quite as cunning]] as she believes she is. She quickly alienates her strongest allies and turns her kingdom into "a feast for crows." By the end of the first book, she's [[spoiler:murdered her incompetent but well-meaning husband]], and she goes on to become [[RegentForLife regent]] [[MyBelovedSmother for her beloved]] [[MamaBear sons]]. Fortunately, Cersei [[spoiler:starts to run herself into the ground the second the checks on her power are removed and, three books later, has been arrested for treason, adultery, and incest by the very ChurchMilitant [[HoistByHisOwnPetard she resurrected.]] Nice going, Cersei.]]
** Fan favorite Daenerys Targaryen isn't looking to be a very appealing option either. It's mainly unintentional, but her lack of political finesse and possession of three barely controlled adolescent dragons means that pretty much any area she finds herself in will likely turn into a war zone.

* ''{{Film/Willow}}'''s BigBad is Bavmorda, feared across the land of Tir Asleen as the Demon Queen, a cruel tyrant and a horrible and powerful witch capable of powerful curses. The story involves her trying to kill a baby that is prophesized to end her reign through means of a ritual meant to kill her and send her soul to the Netherworld, where she will never be able to reincarnate.

* TCB!Celestia from ''FanFic/TheConversionBureauTheOtherSideOfTheSpectrum'' promoted herself to a queen before the story began. Her plan is to [[AssimilationPlot convert all of humanity]] into her newfoal slaves, and then [[MultiversalConqueror move on to the next world to conquer]]. Worse is that turning someone into a pony is MindRape of the highest order, reducing them to a near-zombified ExtremeDoormat with little (if any) brain function or free will and even if someone isn't turned, the [[AdvancingWallOfDoom Barrier]] will just destroy everything made by humans and melting everyone in its path, utterly obliterating human culture. Thanks to said Barrier, Celestia's conquered roughly half the world, with over two billion humans dead or ponified. It's also implied that she's [[BigBrotherIsWatching turned Equestria into an Orwellian state]] with re-education camps for anyone that doesn't agree with her, placed a mind control spell on her guards so they will be loyal unto death and even praise Celestia more than their own families, magically {{Mind Rape}}d most of her country into xenocidal monsters that believe humanity should be ponified. On top of that, she [[spoiler: petrified her sister, and {{Mind Rape}}d the Mane Six by placing magical homunculi into their bodies, which [[AndIMustScream control their every move and leave the actual girls with all the agency of someone possessed by a]] [[Literature/{{Animorphs}} yeerk]].]]

* Well, if you follow [[ConspiracyTheorist Lyndon LaRouche]], Queen Elizabeth II of England is responsible for...lessee...Hitler, WW2, Bosnia genocide, Ruanda genocide, assassinations of politicians worldwide and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the instability of the Italian political party system]]. ([[Music/TheSmiths Morrissey]] and Music/SexPistols don't seem to like her either.)
