* The Queen in ''Manga/MiyukiChanInWonderland''. She is a [[{{Yandere}} crazy]] {{Dominatrix}} with a fearsome reputation, and the Card Girls and Rose Girls all wish for her to "punish" them. She tries to make Miyuki "submit."

** The Queen Consort [[spoiler:joins a plot to assassinate rising star Griffith after Griffith had Guts assassinate her lover.]] ...which probably qualifies as her sole redeeming trait, in retrospect. Unfortunately, she failed.

Unfortunately, she failed. Of course Griffith was a good man before he was subjected to unspeakable torture for a year, so you could also say that everything that has happened is her fault.

The trope comes from the fact that while a king was usually born in the country he ruled, the queen was most often foreign born, given in marriage to cement an alliance, or because of the lack of a bride of equal status in the country. Very often the queen did not even speak the language of her people, making her much less sympathetic to the populace.

* "Uncovered" (after "The Flanders Panel" by Arturo Pérez-Reverte...and no, not ''that'' [[TheSimpsons Flanders]]) has two subversions. (Not a double!) First, the evil queen is a chess queen, [[ChessMotifs the killer playing her role symbolically.]] Second, [[spoiler: that queen is her old mentor Cesar. Queen as in openly homosexual.)]]

* 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.)

is explicitly modeled after Helena Bonham Carter's two-year-old daughter as far as flying into a tantrum and the tiniest slight, but she's gotten worse than her literary counterpart with the death of the Red King--possibly by her own order. She also keeps all her subjects in line by threatening to sic the Jabberwocky on them.

* Queen Ga'ran Sigatar Khura'in from ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice]]''. She shows shades of her menace in the prior investigation, but decides to [[spoiler: [[BeneathTheMask show her true colors]] when she takes over the prosecution in Dhurke's trial. Namely, she mostly takes over the proceeding, dismisses the judge (as in, ''very nearly fires him'') as a figurehead, declares a guilty verdict ''before the first cross-examination'', and literally writes new laws to put the defense at a disadvantage, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trial_in_absentia one of which]] is presently considered a human rights violation, and another ''threatens to publicly execute the defense'' if they accuse her for murder. As we delve into her past, we learn that she set her sister's house on fire, tricked her into abdicating to make people think she was assassinated, placed the blame on Dhurke so Nahyuta wouldn't be considered the crown prince, accused Dhurke of forging evidence when he gets found not guilty, came up with the ''Defense Culpability Act'' and a large amount of anti-lawyer propaganda [[note]]As in, taking the "joke" out of "EvilLawyerJoke"[[/note]] to deface Dhurke as a public enemy, took Amara and Dhurke's daughter, Rayfa, as her own and kept Rayfa's lineage secret as [[{{Blackmail}} leverage over Nahyuta and Amara]], killed her own husband and framed both Dhurke and Amara]], and, ''worst of all'', [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking cancels]] ''[[ShowWithinAShow The Plumed Punisher: Warrior of Neo Twilight Realm]]''. All in all, [[{{Understatement}} she's not a very nice lady]].
