Added DiffLines:

*** Subverted, however, in that the Grue Hive Mind can exist ''without'' the Grue Unity, since [[VoluntaryShapeshifter protean Grue]] already have individual personalities of their own that coordinate the relatively mindless Drones. It's just substantially harder without the Meta-Mind's massive telepathic potential, and thus one of the agendas of the Unity sans Meta-Mind is to round up enough Grue to reform it.

* In TheDCU, the villainess Queen Bee is able to take control of people's minds and turn them into her drones.

\n* In TheDCU, the Franchise/TheDCU:
** The
villainess Queen Bee is able to take control of people's minds and turn them into her drones.



* MarvelUniverse villain Swarm is sometimes an example of this trope. He was a Nazi scientist who was eaten alive by bees, surviving as a hive mind that [[BeeBeeGun telepathically controlled them]] and got them to form up around his bones to make him humanoid. Little mention is made of the queen bee, but if his skeleton inside is destroyed, the bees just fly away.
** Marvel also has Master Mold, who is basically this to the Sentinels when it appears -- it's the ridiculously huge Sentinel that houses the AI program that controls and coordinates all Sentinels. It's also a Sentinel production factory in its own right. So you have a giant robot that makes smaller, still giant robots, and which can control them all via the electronic programming equivalent of a HiveMind.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' has the Gravemind - serving as the Hive Queen for [[TheVirus the Flood]]. This was designed as a bit of a villain upgrade, however, as it explains how a bunch of unorganized "space zombies" could overthrow the [[{{Precursors}} Forerunners]]. Essentially, although individual Flood act as savage, mindless zombies, they are all actually under the direct control of the Gravemind once the Flood attains enough sentient biomass to build a Gravemind, allowing for strategy and tactics to be used against its enemies; this "Coordinated" stage of the species's developmental cycle is stated to be the point at which the Flood becomes truly dangerous. The physical body of the Gravemind is depicted as a gigantic talking "Venus flytrap" built from thousands upon thousands of consumed corpses in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', while in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'', while unseen (but not unheard) aside from a brief appearance from a few of its tentacles, it is upgraded to UltimateEvil status.

Their methods of control can be anything from [[LoveIsInTheAir "pheromones"]] to MindControl to [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul cybernetics]], but they always exercise iron-clad control over their {{Hive Drone}}s, whether naturally spawned or forcefully assimilated... [[HeroicWillpower usually]]. Sometimes, but not always, her powers coincide with (or as) TheVirus and [[ViralTransformation she can expand her hive to normal people]].

Also see GodSaveUsFromTheQueen, MonsterProgenitor, VampireMonarch, and MonsterLord. Frequently wants to help individuals lose TheEvilsOfFreeWill. Do ''not'' confuse with [[AlphaBitch the social role sometimes referred to as a "queen bee"]], or and actual InsectQueen.
