* In both ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' and ''VampireTheRequiem'', "Prince" is the title given to the most important figure of the Vampire politics. The title can vary and some vampires may call themselves Sultans, Dons or even [[PresidentEvil Presidents]], yet most of them would humbly avoid being called "Kings", but the same cannot be said to some self-proclaimed "Queens". And to make things worse in ''VampireTheRequiem'' the ones most inclined to pursue such a title are [[DiabolicalMastermind Ventrue]] [[TheBaroness Dominatrixes]] and [[EvilIsSexy Daeva]] [[TheVamp Maneaters]]. Good luck!

* The entire plot of ''Outlaws of Literature/{{Gor}}'' was subduing the one dominant female character, the queen. Which sums up Gor's main theme about how all women should know their place, and that place is being slaves to men.



** While not explicitly evil, the White Queen is implied to not be very sane either; [[spoiler: [[CruelMercy the punishment she gave to the Red Queen]]]] shows the extremes she can get into.

The trope comes from the fact that historically while kings were usually born in the country they ruled, the queen was most often a foreigner, 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.



** 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. 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 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."

* "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.)
