* 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.

* From the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' the Brood, aliens much like xenomorphs who breed and destroy everything in their path, usually have a Queen leading them.

* Hera in ''ThaliasMusings'', to Zeus' paramours, their children, and any of their sympathizers. However, her hatred toward her stepson Apollo doesn't extend to the Muses since she finds them entertaining.
