* Just like the example above, the [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen female Ventrue]] from ''VampireTheRequiem'' give off this vibe, since most of them are [[IronLady ruthless]], [[AmbitionIsEvil power-hungry]] {{Magnificent Bitch}}es that are able to use ''[[HypnoticEyes Dominate]]'', their clan ''[[PowerPerversionPotential discipline]]'', but, once again, which flavor (or even if this trope is evoked at all) depends on what the player is aiming for.

* Esdeath from ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' is very much a sexpot Baroness: a complete sadist working for the EvilEmpire who wears dominatrix-style clothing, tortures people for fun, and freezes to death a 30,000 person rebel army in her EstablishingCharacterMoment, she still gets all lovey-dovey around protagonist Tatsumi.

* Madame Rouge from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. She's not ugly, but not supermodel pretty, has the sexpot body type more or less...and is a dangerous, brutal fighter who takes great pleasure in pounding Titans and their allies into the dirt. She will ''not'' be falling prey to any hero's charms, thank you very much. Oh, and she has a Russian accent. She'd get along just fine with [[MarvelUniverse Viper]] and the [[GIJoe original Baroness]].

* [[http://yle.fi/aihe/artikkeli/2017/03/23/inhimillinen-tekija-ei-nainen-eika-mies Irma Grese]], "the beast of Belsen" and "The Hyena of Auschwitz". Described as "the vilest human being he ever had met" by Eric Brown, notable AcePilot and translator (he spoke fluent German), she nevertheless was something in-between the two archetypes. She acted as guard at Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz concentration camps. She was described to be a sadistic Lesbian predator, not interested in men, but very abusive towards female prisoners. She was hanged in December 1945 by Albert Pierrepoint at Hameln, Germany. Her last word was ''Schnell!'' (literally "Speed!", in sense "[[DefiantToTheEnd Have speed with it!]]")

* ''MutantsAndMasterminds'' Freedom City setting has an ''AlternateReality'' ''EvilTwin'' of the ''DistaffCounterpart'' of a ''Batman'' ''CaptainErsatz'', the Raven, known as Madam Sin, who falls very much into this trope.

* Aversion: The "Baroness" in ''ScrappedPrincess'' is in her sixties, and not evil so much as in a different faction.

The stereotype of the implausibly attractive Communist or Nazi female officer, and her counterpart, the threatening, mannish sadist, is common in campier WWII and Cold War stories. The Russian example has some basis in fact, as the Soviet military did include more female officers than the US military (permitting women to fly in combat in WWII--a couple of whom became [[http://badassoftheweek.com/yegorova.html aces]]), but really, that just meant that they had a few more than ''none''.

* Meg from ''RuleOfRose'' fulfills surprisingly many requirements for this trope, probably by accident: her fervent loyalty to the authority of the Aristocrats, which is embodied by her pseudo-romantic attraction to Diana, and her status as the group's TortureTechnician. She even has the round glasses and ''the title itself''! The main distinction from the standard examples of thus trope is that she isn't even in her teens yet.
