Much like a {{Tomboy}}, the Ice Queen is a major character archetype, and yet is a nebulous concept. The Ice Queen is a woman who is cold, in any or all of the possible interpretations of what "cold" means. She has a cold heart, and a frosty demeanor. The name is often used as an insult, particularly by [[SourGrapesTropes scorned men]]. Due to the DoubleStandard, the Ice Queen is (almost) AlwaysFemale.

The Ice Queen is unapproachable by a sane man, as she will simply tear out his heart. The term can also be used in a non-romantic sense for a woman who rejects the normally close society of women, and prefers to be [[LonersAreFreaks a loner]]. Very often subjected to [[DefrostingIceQueen defrosting]].

Being an Ice Queen is purely about personality; having [[AnIcePerson ice-related abilities]] does not make a character an Ice Queen. Though [[PersonalityPowers it's not at all uncommon for a character with a "cold" personality to be given "cold" powers]].

Not to be confused with a character who has a [[Winter Royal Lady|royal title associated with ice or snow]], though they two may overlap (and often do in more magical settings).
