* Lady Margaret and Queen Skillya, the queens of the glukkon and slig races, are these in the ''[[VideoGame/{{Oddworld}} Oddworld]]'' series. [[BiggerBad Lady Margaret]] is the leader of the Magog Cartel, the organization responsible for the horrifying atrocities throughout the games, and Queen Skillya beats the sligs as children so they grow up to be cruel sadists before hiring them off as low cost security to the Magog. Incidentally, they both also qualify as [[EvilMatriarch Evil Matriarchs]], as the glukkons and sligs are both [[BeePeople eusocial]] species, meaning that the two queens are the mothers of most of their populations.

* Well, if you follow [[ConspiracyTheorist Lyndon LaRouche]], Queen Elizabeth II of England is responsible for...lessee...Hitler[[note]]Who came to power in Germany when she was only seven years old; the girl obviously got an early start in messing around with world politics[[/note]], 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.)

** Queen Nehellenia of the Dead Moon is the straightest ''Sailor Moon'' example, although in the [[Anime/SailorMoon anime]] she is redeemed.
** Queen Metaria and her [[TheDragon dragon]] Queen Beryl of the Dark Kingdom are also evil rulers and called queens, but it's not clear that Queen Metaria really counts as a queen. She's just called that because... well, the Dark Kingdom is called a kingdom. Queen Beryl doesn't truly count either, as she was an oracle in her past life.

** Youko's predecessor Queen Joukaku. [[spoiler: Even though her reign only lasted six years, not only she [[IJustWantToBeNormal did]] ''[[IJustWantToBeNormal not]]'' [[IJustWantToBeNormal want to be Queen]] in the first place, but she fell in love with her ''kirin'' Keiki, [[{{Yandere}} killing every other women that crossed their path of jealously]]. But she redeemed herself by [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing herself]], to not let Keiki die when her bad rulership ''literally'' caused him [[IllBoy to get sick]]. But with Keiki being a ''Bishounen'', it would be expected.]]
** Later on in the series, it's mentioned that Kei has had ''three'' of these in a row- four if you count a female pretender to the throne. There are some people in Kei who are so used to this trope that they distrust Yoko as "just another lady-king". However, Yoko herself is an aversion, as are the queens of Kyou and Sai. A character even mentions that, after two excellent (and therefore long-lived) female rulers, the people of Kyou "pray that their next ruler will not be a man."
** In the backstory, there's also the former queen of Hou, Kaka ([[UnfortunateNames yes, we know]]). While the king, Chuutatsu, was bad enough, believing that execution was a fitting punishment [[AllCrimesAreEqual for]] ''[[AllCrimesAreEqual any]]'' [[AllCrimesAreEqual crime]], the queen put this to her advantage, accusing maids and courtiers of whom she was jealous of petty crimes so that they would be killed. For this she and her husband were both beheaded in a citizen revolt.

And let's not even talk about her process of [[BreakTheCutie breaking the genkiest girl (and her sister-in-law) from the first generation]] [[KillTheCutie to death]] ([[spoiler: or said girl's younger sister, if she died early]]), all done not for political manuvers but ForTheEvulz. It makes all the more satisfying to see her go down at the hands of [[YouKilledMyFather her nephew Arthur and/or her niece Teeny]].
