* ''Literature/TheWanderingInn'': The gigantic hive queen of the Antiniums is able to change the memories of the hive mind. When a certain member died, his memories were still present in all Antinniums, but if the queen had just wished it, no Antinium would have known he had ever existed.

* Male Zuul in ''SwordOfTheStars'' are the centres of their coteries, and killing one will destroy the HiveMind it shares with all its females and prevent them from sharing consciousness with each other.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has the rachni queen, a species of intelligent insect aliens, which were inspired by the Bugs from the aforementioned Literature/StarshipTroopers, who have been around for quite some time. In the past, they've been driven mad by ''sour notes'', and have a bad reputation for being used as invasion forces. Due to GeneticMemory, the rachni queen of this cycle is actually quite peaceful, as if she is let go in the first game, she promises to disappear from the galaxy at large, a promise she keeps. She returns in VideoGame/MassEffect3, having been captured by the Reapers. If she's freed, she pledges her full support to stopping them, another promise she keeps.
** In a direct contrast, the Reaper-created Rachni Breeder, if freed, will hold more true to the trope, slaughtering a large majority of your war assets and disappearing.

* 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.]]
