* %%* Andrea Glassen from ''Windows'' (1980).(1980).
* As the HalfwayPlotSwitch reveals in ''Film/LakeBodom'', all the deaths in the movie are caused by [[spoiler:Nora's unrequited crush on Ida-Maria]]. Realizing that Ida-Maria liked Elias, [[spoiler:Nora]] started a rumor that someone had taken pictures of Ida-Maria naked after she passed out during a party and showed them to the entire school, causing her to be ostracized and [[SlutShaming slut-shamed]] by everyone until Nora became her only friend. She then told Ida-Maria that Elias and his friend Atte had taken the pictures and thus deserved to die, starting the events of the movie. Her plan to MurderTheHypotenuse would have made her the BigBad of the story if they didn't [[CollidingCriminalConspiracies just happen to encounter]] a genuine {{slasher}} killer.

* In ''Daemon in Lithuania'' (1973), some characters put on a play that contains [[TropeOverdosed half of all the old-fashioned clichés ever invented]]. Kinga is found to be pregnant, and: "Enter the Lady-in-Black. She nourished a tragic passion for Kinga, and heaped the most terrible reproaches on her head, striding up and down the stage and drawing on her long cigarette holder. Finally, she tossed it on to the ground, [[GroinAttack stamped on it]], and flung herself on to her frivolous friend's couch, intending to strangle her..."

* Purgatori, the [[LesbianVampire lesbian vampire demon]] originally created by Brian Pulido as an antagonist for his main {{stripperiffic}} heroine, ComicBook/LadyDeath. She may actually be a DepravedBisexual, having once been Satan's concubine, but all of the (semi-)consensual relationships we've seen have had her with women.



* The Daughters of the Amazon in ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'' are frequently branded psycho lesbians by other women (they're certainly psycho, and have [[StrawFeminist little use for men]]). Subverted in that a) we never see any lesbian behavior among the Amazons and b) discreet lesbianism (especially with male impersonators) quickly becomes the norm in a world deprived of men. One of the few openly lesbian characters simply describes the Amazons as "nutters who cut off their norks".
** They're likely "political lesbians" - heterosexual radical feminists who "became lesbians" for ideological reasons. Many real lesbians don't like them because their stance reinforces the fallacy pushed by homophobes that homosexuality is a choice. Another complaint from quite a few real lesbians who have been in relationships with political lesbians are that political lesbians are often [[LieBackAndThinkOfEngland unenthusiastic about gay sex]], which the comic is probably pointing out.



* This is the subtext to Ursula Imada's obsession with Sundra Peale in ''Nexus''. By the time of Ursula's [[spoiler:death]], it was only just barely subtext. Averted with Jil, who is a lesbian but not at all psycho, and Sundra, who is clearly bi and also not at all psycho.



* Nearly every major lesbian/bisexual female character in Marvel continuity has been assigned some degree of mental instability. The bisexual [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Skein]], for instance, married an older man and then killed him for his money; [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} Man-Killer/Amazon]] used to be a man-hating militant feminist; [[ComicBook/TheOrder Mulholland Black]] went so crazy [[spoiler:that her own teammates put her down]], etc. Even the ones without criminal pasts have been portrayed as less than fully sane; The ''[[ComicBook/TheLoners Loners]]'' miniseries portrayed bisexual [[ComicBook/PowerPack Lightspeed]] as being the superhero equivalent of a FormerChildStar, with all the attendant mental baggage, while the lesbian [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Karolina Dean]] is bipolar, according to the Marvel Handbooks.

* Commander Sullamander from ''FanFic/ABriefHistoryOfEquestria''; the lover of the previous commander ([[Lolicon supposedly since she was a foal]]), Sullamander ruled the Celestine Junta with an iron hoof, executing anyone that spoke out against her and once attempting to ban or severely limit heterosexual unions. At the end of her life, she had gone full crazy and demanded that her soldiers worship her as a god, even as her enemies were already breaking through her forces and on their way to kill her. [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Of course, her lesbian tendencies were played up in sources by propaganda or less-learned scholars whose minds were too far in the gutter.]]

* The sadistic Nazi Ingrid in Roberto Rossellini's seminal classic ''Rome, Open City'' (1945). Ingrid plies her targets with luxuries like narcotics and fine clothes in order to gather information on the Italian resistance in Rome; eventually disposing of them when they outlive their usefulness. The young woman she seduces doesn't come off too well either, but she's desperate, bitter, and impoverished in war-torn Rome and is somewhat easier to sympathize with.



* Sister George from ''The Killing of Sister George'' (1968) is pretty unstable, and very possessive of her lover. There's also her predatory boss Mercy Croft.

to:

* Sister George Roxy, Catherine Trammell's girlfriend in ''Film/BasicInstinct''. Paired with ClingyJealousGirl, as she tries to kill Nick, Catherine's other lover, when he refuses to leave Catherine alone as Roxy has ordered him to, and is briefly viewed as one of the suspects in killing the man murdered in the film's opening.
* Nina Sayers
from ''The Killing of Sister George'' (1968) is pretty unstable, ''Film/BlackSwan'' (2010) seems to be a paranoid schizophrenic, and very possessive of is as such psycho''tic'', but definitely not psycho''pathic''. She is clearly sexually attracted to Lily, although whether they actually ever have sex, or whether that was Nina's delusion, is difficult to know, as is whether she is violent toward anyone but herself, since [[UnreliableNarrator the story is told from her lover. There's also her predatory boss Mercy Croft.perspective, making it impossible for the audience to know what is real and what are Nina's delusions]]. She is arguably, then, a notable deconstruction of this trope.



* Eunice from ''Butterfly Kiss'' (1996) is very much this trope; the only twist is that the girl she's obsessed with reciprocates her feelings, and they turn into an OutlawCouple that wreak havoc in their wake.
* Harris from ''Camp Blood'' (2000) went insane and became a serial killer after catching her girlfriend cheating on her with a man.
* Amy, Heather Graham's character in ''Film/{{Compulsion}}'', is implied to be this throughout most of the film, as it obvious as the story is told through flashbacks that she was obsessed with her neighbor Saffron (Carrie-Anne Moss) and is clearly lying to Det. Reynolds (Joe Mantegna) about how well she knew Saffron. In the end, it is revealed that [[spoiler:that Amy and Saffron did have sex, after which [[ImAHumanitarian Amy killed, butchered, cooked, and ate]] Saffron, but that it was all consensual.]] That may mean that they were both examples of this trope.
* Miss G from ''Film/{{Cracks}}'' (2009) definitely fits this trope. From the start of the film is clear somethings not quite right with her and over the the course of the film she shows many signs of having some sort of mental disorder. Later in the film she becomes obsessed with a female student to the point of actually raping her.
* Parodied in ''[[Film/{{DEBS}} D.E.B.S.]]'' (2003). The villainess Lucy Diamond is more than willing to sink the entire continent of Australia in frustration over not being able to form an emotionally satisfying lesbian relationship. Fortunately she is redeemed by the love of an incredibly hot secret agent in a [[SchoolgirlLesbians plaid skirt]]. Then there was Lucy's blind date Ninotchka, who was clearly not all there and completely lost it when Lucy tried to back out of their date.



* [[spoiler: Marie]] from ''Film/HighTension'' (2003).
* The animal liberation group/diamond thieves from ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' (2001), according to a deleted scene and Kevin Smith.
* Jennifer from ''Film/JennifersBody'' (2009) can be interpreted as being romantically attracted to her best friend [[HollywoodHomely Needy]]. When she becomes possessed by a demon and starts eating people, she specifically targets boys who Needy likes or loves. More to the point, [[AuthorAppeal she and Needy do kiss at one point]].
* In ''Franchise/JurassicPark'', the raptors are all females (and also "homeothermic", which is possibly innuendo). The Big One is an indiscriminate killer, but she still sacrifices her life to avenge the death of her mate.
* ''Kate's Addiction'' (1999) follows Kate's obsessive pursuit of former friend Sara up to and including killing anyone who gets in her way.
* Sister George from ''The Killing of Sister George'' (1968) is pretty unstable, and very possessive of her lover. There's also her predatory boss Mercy Croft.
* In ''Lost and Delirious'' (2001), the main character learns that her boarding school roommates are in love. One girl's family pitches a fit, and she goes to sleep with the first guy she sees, and the other girl goes completely insane, chasing eagles in the woods and [[spoiler: she commits suicide at the end. It's even worse because the older teacher tries to save her by sharing her own forbidden love.]]
** Paulie's much less palatable in the book: She not only [[spoiler:dresses up as a guy, but deceives the entire school population into thinking she has a brother]], but she worships King Kong and she strings (the much ''less'' naive) Mouse along much further. Her own sexuality is never mentioned, although there's a brief scene with Tori, who professes a crush on "Lewis". The older teacher is still in a forbidden romance (here explicitly stated when Paulie and Mouse find letters from the teachers), but this is better justified by deliberate ValuesDissonance (the book's set in the 50's).



* Andrea Glassen from ''Windows'' (1980).

to:

* Andrea Glassen ''Make a Wish'' (2002), an alternate title for which is even ''Lesbian Psycho''. A group of lesbians go camping in the woods. Is the killer one of the male red herrings? [[spoiler: Nope]]
* Syl and Madie
from ''Windows'' (1980).''Film/{{Maskhead}}'' (2009) are a sick lesbian couple who make fetish porn that always ends with the participants being slaughtered by their pet killer, the eponymous Maskhead.
* [[spoiler:Diane]] from ''Film/MulhollandDrive'' (2001) is a lesbian, and definitely doesn't have both oars in the water. Interestingly, [[spoiler:she's the main character.]] [[MindScrew Assuming that part of the movie actually happened]].
** It's worth noting though that she comes off as more of the genuinely unbalanced sort, than the more AxeCrazy psychos that can be found on this page.
* Ruby from ''Film/TheNeonDemon'' (2016) fits this to a T, obsessing over the female lead, leading to an AttemptedRape, as well as having an ILoveTheDead moment with a female cadaver at her job in the morgue.
* Barbara Covett of ''Film/NotesOnAScandal''. Although the relationships we hear of and see her in (Jennifer and Sheba, respectively) are platonic, it's obvious she wants more. She is also a ClingyJealousGirl, having sent Jennifer's fiance a funeral wreath, and refusing to understand why Sheba's family takes priority over her.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' offers a rare ''mutual'' example with Lambdadelta and Bernkastel. At first it seems like it's Lamda's one-sided MadLove that makes her want to keep Bern all for herself. In Episode 5 though, it turns out they have a genuine love for each other. Very violent and twisted, but genuine nontheless.

* Gail Swanson, the VillainProtagonist of ''[[http://whenshewasbad.smackjeeves.com/ When She was Bad]]''.
* In Chloe's web comic ''Webcomic/GoGetARoomie'', "Roomie" of the title appears to manifest this trope: technically homeless, but playing on her charm and good looks to obtain rent-free stays with a string of lovers, taking them for granted for everything until she gets bored and moves on, generally wearing stolen clothes and with whatever money she can scoop up on the way out. It is only way into the series that it is revealed she does have feelings for others and a conscience, but the Roomie of the early strips is a heartbreaking conscienceless psychopath.
** Whether or not Roomie uses her hosts is debatable "taking them for granted for everything until she gets bored and moves on" is an extreme, even far-fetched interpretation of her behavior even in the early chapters but she never steals from them. The one time she's shown walking out in someone else's clothes, she couldn't get at her own, and she returned them at the end of the chapter. Likewise, the money she took from the table was specifically intended for food for Lillian, which Roomie bought, prepared, and laid out for her. Even her conscience at least, her remorse that someone got hurt from misinterpreting her usual flirtatiousness is demonstrated by the end of the first chapter.



* In ''Webcomic/YuMeDream'' Sadako is a pretty perfect example. That being said, [[CastFullOfGay other characters]] provide more positive depictions of homosexuality and bisexuality.



* One of [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Vanessa's]] exes in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', whom she left for casting aspersions on her bisexuality once too often, apparently still calls her, begging to get back together while calling her "whore."

* Fire Burial from ''WebOriginal/Brennus''. She'll burn off the genitals of any male who propositions her.



* Pinkie Pie from ''WebVideo/MyLittlePonyTheMentallyAdvancedSeries'' is easily the most cruel and violent of the Mane 6. She has, among other atrocities: almost sprayed fluttershy with Aqua Regia (known for its ability to dissolve gold), has enjoyed the suffering of Rarity, and asked Twilight to make Fluttershy cry for a vial of holy water. She has also hit on most of the main cast (all female), and has outright stated "Pinkie is lesbian".
* Lyn "Laeil" Burbank of ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'''s third version. After confessing her love to a female friend, she gets bullied by her classmates for being a "dyke". Once she gets on the island, she kills her cousin (who was one of her major bullies) by [[GroinAttack stabbing him in the groin repeatedly]]. Afterwards, she decides that she was going to die anyways, and that she was going to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge get revenge on everyone who ever bullied her]]. [[spoiler: The last thing she sees before she dies is a hallucination of forementioned female friend forgiving her.]] Reiko Ishida of version 4 is an inversion: while she is a prominent player, one of her more sympathetic qualities is her relationship with Sarah Xu, and after CharacterDevelopment she starts to be concerned about what Sarah thinks of her actions.
* ''WebVideo/TheVeronicaExclusive'' gives us Jane. SerialKiller. AxCrazy. {{Yandere}} extraordinaire. Hopelessly in love with Veronica. Incidentally, Veronica is [[BiTheWay bisexual]] and ([[SanitySlippage usually]]) sane.



* Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren from the Netflix original series ''Orange is the New Black'' is gay, and also definitely has mental problems, as her nickname might suggest. She is also a deconstruction, in that she is not a bad person, per se, nor is she even a full-blown psychotic, although the prison does periodically have to confine her in the psychiatric ward.
