* Arisse, the Duchess of Lillah from ''VisualNovel/LongLiveTheQueen'', is said to be regarded by many as the second queen of Nova for her strong, no-nonsense approach to government. If the actions Elodie takes paint her as being a weak ruler, Arisse will garner support from the other nobles to instigate a civil war against her. It's possible to learn of her involvement with some dark secrets within her family (provided that you have Elodie take enough Internal Affairs classes and direct her spies and agents appropriately), but there's no denying her influence.

* [[LadyOfWar Iron Clie]] from ''Chou VisualNovel/DengekiStryker'' earned her name both for her stern demeanor and the [[ArtificialLimbs prosthetic arm]] that she wears openly. About the only time she softens is when teasing her ShrinkingViolet sister Rin. [[spoiler:After their HeelFaceTurn and the revelation that Clie's arm is [[SuperPrototype a prototype Stryker System]], Rin volunteers to have her mind uploaded into Clie's cybernetics to unlock its [[PersonOfMassDestruction full potential]]. Fittingly, the sisters' combined form is known as Stryker Hagane, meaning "steel".]]

* In ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', the heavenly Beatrice is compared to a stern admiral when she reunites with her lover, Dante, since she scolds him to tears to get him to fully confess his many, many infidelities. This first appearance is not harsh without reason, since Beatrice has been charged with leading Dante's quest into Heaven, where no evil man can go.

* Angela Merkel, current [[TheChancellorsOfGermany Chancellor of Germany]], has gained some reputation for this as she is a pretty tough customer in international negotiations. One can make jokes about Merkel's charisma or her lack thereof but she is undoubtedly a winner and a ruthless one at that. One of her nicknames is the "Black Widow", because it is said that she would suck life out of any party that governs in a "[[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness coalition]]" with her. The average time span between her expressing her "utmost trust" in someone and the person stepping down is 33.3 days. (That's a real statistic.) Longest survivor is Pope Benedict (!!) with nearly three years, only one to survive is Wolfgang Schäuble who even got "utmost trusted" twice.

* Averted by [[AustralianPolitics Australia]]'s first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, who liked to stress her '[[CatchPhrase consultative approach]]'. This has earned her a lot of criticism.

* Indira Gandhi of India, who remains till date the only female Prime Minister of that country. At one point, she was even ''de facto'' dictator of India for almost two years (the Indian Emergency, 1975-77). Much like MargaretThatcher in the United Kingdom, she remains a highly polarizing individual in India to this very day.
