* 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.

** The queen of the trolls, Her Imperious Condescension, flies around the universe in her ship greeting new civilizations with politeness. She then leaves and sends a portion of her vast army to annihilate her new acquaintances. And then once she signs on with [[BigBad Lord English]], she becomes [[BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy Betty Crocker]] and sets off a series of disastrous events, including taking over the Alpha Derse by dethroning the Black Queen. Which she then tops when it's revealed what she did to Earth: Taking over, attempting to re-create her Troll empire and culture on humans (prohibition of natural breeding, the [[Music/InsaneClownPosse ICP]] nominated as subjugglators), death camps killing 5 billion, various experiments... To the point that Dirk and Roxy are the last human survivors of their time.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat3'' gave us Edenia's Queen Sindel, who was resurrected by BigBad Shao Khan into doing evil things. She changed sides afterwards and is now on the side of good along with he daughter Kitana, making this something of a subversion. [[spoiler:Not so much in the reboot when Shao Kahn purposely gave most of Shang Tsung's strength to her, making her brutally kill the majority of the Forces of Good and was only stopped by Nightwolf's HeroicSacrifice.]]

* ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'': [[spoiler:TheReveal pulls this with Cortana, who in the [[VideoGame/{{Halo 4}} previous game]] remained Master Chief's friend even as her digital body collapsed and she struggled to remain sane, eventually doing a HeroicSacrifice with the last of her strength. But this proved to be [[SenselessSacrifice senseless]], as though she was supposedly repaired, [[CameBackWrong it actually]] [[FaceHeelTurn has]] [[AIIsACrapshoot corrupted her]], so she's now at best a WellIntentionedExtremist who's going to take over the galaxy with her army of enormous Guardian machines, and hopefully become Empress of the Galaxy, while going {{Yandere}} and becoming a ClingyJealousGirl towards Chief. [[KnightTemplar While she keeps insisting that she has good reasons for doing so]], it's clearly bordering on WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide, especially when she imprisons Chief and Blue Team in a Cryptum so they won't interfere with her schemes. By the end of ''Halo 5'', [[FallenHero Cortana]], once identified as the greatest of "human ancilla", decides to invoke a ZerothLawRebellion that could lead to all AIs being cured of rampancy and rendered immortal "protectors" (read: jailers) of organic races, and soon enough, hundreds of AIs, including shipbound ones, flock ''en masse'' to her cause within seconds of the announcement.]]

** Cersei is much like her book version in that she shows a snobbish disdain and a lack of consideration for the common people, 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.

In "You Win or You Die", she orchestrates a HuntingAccident for Robert.

* 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.)
