* ''TabletopGame/DemonTheFallen'' suggests that ''{{God}}'' of the OldWorldOfDarkness is actually [[LittleMissAlmighty female]]. Let's just say that She didn't really take care of Her own Creation.

* ''WarhammerFantasy'' has Dark the Dark elves hag Queen, Morathi, is one of the most powerful wizards in the game and the reason the dark elves had been corrupted in the first place. The Hag Queens of the Temple of Khaine are berzerkers that go to battle looking like they are two thosand years old by human standards and wearing next to nothing. If that isn't frightening, nothing is.

** Shogun Tsunayoshi (a GenderFlip of the RealLife Tsunayoshi) is seen as this in due to the economy tanking, her very unpopular Edicts for Compassion for Living Beings (which made it a crime to harm dogs, who ran wild and brought disease), her equally unpopular ruling on The47Ronin's actions (compounded by the fact that they were mostly men in a Japan where the male population was only a quarter of the female population), being surrounded by ineffective councilors, hoarding men to serve as her concubines even after she was past the age to conceive, and finally delaying her decision on who to name her heir because her father disagreed with the popular choice on the grounds that she was the granddaughter of his hated rival. The sad thing is Tsunayoshi knows she's hated, and would have welcomed someone to kill her. [[spoiler: It's unclear if she got her MercyKill or if [[WomanScorned another trope]] motivated her murder.]]
** Tokugawa Harusada. While several Shoguns of the series have been cruel, self-centred, short-sighted, too prideful to admit mistakes or simply not very good rulers, Harusada is basically a textbook sociopath and treats the court as her own little playground. [[spoiler:Amongst her sins are murdering her own sister and mother, discrediting, poisoning and assassinating anyone between her and the throne, dismissing courtiers and ministers on silly whims, and murdering her own grandchildren for fun.]]

The sad thing is as a person she's not really that bad: selfish, certainly, but well meaning, but the death of her only child really unhinged her and led to her getting pushed out of politics by her ineffective councilors to concentrate on babymaking. Her greatest fault is an eagerness to please her father, which is what led to the Edicts and the delay in naming her heir. Not to mention it wasn't ''her'' fault a famine occurred during her reign either. The ''really'' sad thing is Tsunayoshi knows she's hated, and would have welcomed someone a kingslayer to kill her. [[spoiler: It's unclear if she got her MercyKill or if [[WomanScorned another trope]] motivated her murder.murder at Yoshiyasu's hands.]]

[[spoiler:Amongst her sins are murdering her own sister and mother, discrediting, poisoning and or assassinating anyone between her and the throne, dismissing courtiers and ministers on silly whims, and murdering her own grandchildren for fun.]]]] It should be noted she's not ''technically'' shogun, [[spoiler: her son is]], but she is ruler in all but name, and in fact cited that as the reason she relinquished her claim to the shogunate: as shogun she'd be stuck making babies and as mother of the shogun she can have all the fun she wants.

* Queen Juliana in ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'' is the sinister Queen of Icepeak and [[BigBad Nekron's]] mother. While she is more of a "Queen-mother" type since her son is the actual ruler, she sends her minions to kidnap a princess and make her a concubine to Nekron.

* This is cited as the "moral" of the Ulster Cycle story ''[[Literature/TainBoCuailnge Táin Bó Cúailnge]]'', or ''The Cattle Raid of Cooley'', where Queen Medb, eager to prove an arrogant boast that she is equal to her husband, touches off a terribly destructive war in an attempt to acquire a bull the equal of the best of his.

** Also, The Morrígan ("Phantom Queen"), the Irish goddess of war, death and fertility. She's a conniving [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] and a bloodthirsty warrior who ''will'' [[DisproportionateRetribution completely ruin someone's life over a minor slight]]. The reason she's ChaoticNeutral and not ChaoticEvil is sometimes she will aid people who sufficiently impress her.

* The aptly named Death Queen in ''ComicBook/LadyDeath'' is an absolutely insane ruler who dethrones the titular character and rules the {{Hell}} with iron fist, and turns into an OmnicidalManiac as her madness progresses. To make matters worse, she is also revealed to be the [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather the heroine's mother]].]]

** Agatha Heterodyne herself could also count. Although there's not much to fear if you're on her side, it doesn't stop her from channeling her ancestors and being ''very'' scary [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20110608#.V4-N8rgrK00 when she wants to be.]] [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20090504#.V4-OhbgrK00 It's a very useful trait.]]
** The women of the extended Sturmvoraus/Valois family and their relatives also enjoy this trope. Princess Anevka's first act upon [[spoiler: the death of her father, whom she had killed, was to [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20060529#.V4-QTLgrK01 enslave via mind control the entire town]] and to kill everyone that wasn't affected, along with her brother.]] Xerxsephnia von Blitzengaard appears to be double-crossing half her family, and [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20151030#.V4-PfrgrK00 reacts rather explosively]] when she hears that the target of her affections has been asking after Agatha before blaming her servant for the damage. Lady Selnikov [[spoiler: murders one monk and shoots another to attempt to find a mysterious item.]] And all of ''them'' are scared of Grandmother, the matriarch of the family.

* In one of ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'''s many [[AlternateUniverse side-dimensions]], Toa Tuyet, a corrupted female Toa [[AlternateHistory managed to take over the world]], turning it [[MirrorUniverse upside-down]]. While not necessarily a "queen", she did rule over her universe with a trope-fitting evilness. And if her plan had succeeded, probably Roodaka would have become something similar -- but with the official title of a queen.

* Cersei in ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is much like her book version, and has only gotten worse now that the [[OvertookTheManga series overtook the books]]: [[spoiler: she used wildfire to blow up the Sept of Baelor while the High Sparrow, her uncle, her cousin, and her in-laws were inside to avoid being held accountable for her previous crimes. This caused massive amounts of damage to King's Landing. She's then rather callous when her last remaining child kills himself because of this. The season ends with her being crowned sole Queen of Westeros.]] Keep in mind her brother killed a previous king because he merely ''threatened'' to do this, and he's most certainly ''not'' happy that his sister has done this.

** Vashti, possibly. The Book of Esther only says that she refused to appear before her husband when he demanded it, and was put to death as punishment. This alone makes her sympathetic or even proto-feminist, though [[TheTalmud Jewish tradition]] paints her as a tyrant who abused her Jewish servants. In this version her refusal to appear before the king was because the ArchangelGabriel punished her with some kind of disfigurement.
