* Audrey's housekeeper from ''WesternAnimation/LittleAudrey''. Quite a FairForItsDay portrayal, since even though she's a bit harsh on Audrey, she plays the role as TheOnlySaneMan, plus she's always right at the end.

* Subverted by Lenora "The natural born mama" from ''VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite''. She's not a mammy in personality or profession, but definitely by character design. Part of the reason she drapes her apron (which makes her look rather round) over her back instead in the US release (revealing a slimmer but still much more full bodied figure than the standard Pokemon woman). The apron was also edited out of the anime and the manga in the US. Also probably part of the reason she was the one of the replaced gym leaders in the main story of ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'', and the only one that can't be battled outside of the World Tournament.

* Bubba's mother (and her mother before her, and so on) from ''Film/ForrestGump''.
** [[spoiler:At least until Forrest gave her Bubba's share of the Bubba Gump Shrimp company; after that, she hired a ''white'' woman to be ''her'' "mammy".]]

* Delilah in both film versions of ''Imitation Of Life'', but especially [[Film/ImitationOfLife1934 the 1934 original]]. The 1959 version by Creator/DouglasSirk is in fact a {{Deconstruction}}.

In both versions she is the [[HeterosexualLifePartners best friend]] of Bea and they [[HasTwoMommies raise their children together]]. Unlike most "mammy" type characters she has her own storyline and character development.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Hallelujah}}'' Zeke's mother is actually called Mammy, and she looks and dresses the part. But it's subverted to some extent as she is the mother of a family of poor cotton farmers, not a servant to a white person.

* Eulabelle from the B-movie ''Film/TheHorrorOfPartyBeach''. She's condescended to by most characters and the hero goes the extra mile by putting on a SouthernGentleman patois exclusively when speaking her. She's also the only main character with any real personality or charisma, and every time the plot stalls out, it falls to her to go back and give the starter cord another tug.

* Aunt Jemima from the Quaker Oats Company's brand; was originally a character from MinstrelShows. Her new design nixes the "Mammy" imagery, giving her a natural hairstyle and pearls to insinuate that she's a homemaker.
