* Diana Rigg as Olenna Tyrell in ''Series/GameOfThrones''. There are shades of this in the book, but it's Rigg's performance (which has been repeatedly compared to Maggie Smith's aforementioned turn as the Dowager Countess on ''Downton Abbey'') that brings the character definitively into this trope.

* The Wardrobe from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', in looks anyway-- she's rather cheerful and even cracks a slightly ribald joke ("Let's see what I've got in my drawers!") during her first meeting with Belle.

* The Wardrobe from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is a subversion: she looks anyway-- the part but she's rather very cheerful and even cracks a slightly ribald joke ("Let's see what I've got in my drawers!") during her first meeting with Belle.



* Very common in Film/TheThreeStooges (often played by Symona Boniface or Bess Flowers), as for instance, "Society Mugs," in which Muriel Allen (played by Flowers) needs an escort to Alice Preston's dinner party, and her maid mistakenly places a telephone call to Acme Exterminators instead of Acme Escorts; HilarityEnsues.

* Creator/BertrandRussell's parents died young, and he was [[RaisedByGrandparents raised by his grandfather and grandmother]], the [[Creator/EarlRussell Earl and Countess Russell]]. Because the Earl was near death and died two years after Bertrand's parents, he spent the longest time under the rule of his grandmother, who, although quite broadminded and indulgent, was also famously formidable and insisted--against her deceased son's wishes--on raising the children as devout Presbyterians. (It didn't stick.)
