* In TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}, the greatest example of this is [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/genetisaur.htm Genetisaur]], a grotesque, phallic, ''[[FemaleMonsterSurprise female]]'' creature that spits out spermlike young that incubate in women before maturing into [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/genetimorph.htm Genetimorphs]]
** They also have the [[http://www.bogleech.com/mortasheen/harlequeen.htm Harlequeen]], who is basically the accumulated minds of all the creatures a [[MonsterClown Joker]] hive have consumed.

* The Elder Brain in an [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Illithid]] colony, and the Hive Mother of a Beholder city.
** In both cases, however, they're much more similar to an actual insect queen than a true HiveQueen, and neither species has a HiveMind. The former manages to subvert even that, in a sense-- Illithid tadpoles ''can'' survive outside of an Elder Brain's pool of nutrients, but it mutates in the process, becoming a creature called a Neothelid. These creatures are fully sentient, and posses PsychicPowers like their more normal kin, but are also roughly the size of a dragon, so they can't pull off PuppeteerParasite gig very easily.
** The Formian Queens are a more straight up example.
** So are the Hivebrood, a vicious insect-race from the Basic/Expert/etc D&D rules.

** Primus, the godlike ruler of the Modrons is similar to the Borg Queen this way, just not as evil or destructive. Its ability to absorb the life-force of any slain modron and replace it immediately makes the modron race nearly undefeatable unless Primus itself is killed. (And they can even recover from ''that'', although should it happens, the whole race is thrown into chaos until a new Primus evolves from one of the four Secundi, and its first action is to stabilize the disorder that has occurred.)

* In ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', Taylor has the rather appropriate power of controlling bugs; she shares their sensory inputs and can direct her entire swarm as if it were an extension of her body. [[spoiler:At the climax of the story, she gains the ability to control people in the same manner.]]

She then lures the widows to her lab (supposedly to reveal what happened) to be [[TheVirus transformed]] into Bee Girls and join her.

* The Borg Queen from ''Franchise/StarTrek'', who claims to somehow ''be'' the Collective rather than simply control it (don't worry, the characters don't quite get it, either). Presumably the "Queen" is simply a personification of the Collective (confusingly contradicted by WordOfGod), assembled whenever one is deemed necessary for one-on-one interaction. Especially considering the number of times she has come back from the dead. Ever since her debut in ''[[Film/StarTrekFirstContact First Contact]]'', whether her existence is a good or bad idea has been a matter of great debate. Note that she never actually refers to herself as a Queen, or even the leader of the Borg. The other characters do.

* The Melissidae bloodline in ''VampireTheRequiem'' are basically vampires as this, using unique takes on MindControl powers to reduce any and all humans around them to a HiveMind of "drones" under their complete control. [[MeaningfulName The name is taken from the Latin name for "Honeybee".]] They were founded by a rather deranged woman who wholeheartedly believed in TheEvilsOfFreeWill, and the sourcebook makes no bones about calling out what they have as being "an obscene perversion of nature, even before you account for the soulless undead abomination at its center".

* The Slivers in ''MagicTheGathering'' have a [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=5233 Sliver Queen]], but like all the other Slivers she's a specialized breed, her specialty being, of course, reproduction. Unlike the other Slivers, however, she appears to be unique. The Slivers survive and function fine without her when they're reconstituted by the [[MadScientist Riptide Project]], but apparently she was something of a check on them, as they rampage aimlessly and in flavor text seem to crave some sort of direction at the same time, eventually resulting in the creation of the [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=45166 Sliver Overlord]], which despite the male name is a more straight example of the trope. Finally, it's implied they eventually form a true hive mind, discarding both Overlord and no longer needing a Queen, as the [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=136146 Sliver Legion]] (...and although most tournaments' rules prevent it, [[GameplayAndStorySegregation standard gameplay mechanics]] don't stop you playing all three at once).
