* Parodied with Frau Farbissana in ''AustinPowers''.

* In ''Series/{{Elementary}}'', [[spoiler: Moriarty]] turns out to be one of these. She's the sexpot type (complete with genuine, if twisted, feelings for Sherlock and wearing a stylish military-style jacket in her first post-reveal scene). She also shows hints of the Rosa Klebb's sexual ambiguity in later seasons when she develops a bit of an enemy-crush on Watson after Watson proves to be [[WorthyOpponent one of the few people capable of out-maneuvering her]].

* In ''Series/Supergirl2015, [[spoiler: Lillian Luthor]], the chilly and sadistic face of the [[FantasticRacism anti-alien]] [[MadScientist mad science]] organization Project Cadmus, is a Rosa Klebb.

The Sexpot type of Baroness can sometimes overlap with TheVamp or FemmeFatale, but most examples of the Baroness, sexy or no, have too much self-respect to use sex as a weapon. She's more about [[{{Sadist}} hurting men]] than pleasing them. See also ThoseWackyNazis or DirtyCommunists, for the kind of co-conspirators she usually works with, or DragonLady, for the Eastern variety. Is very often the WomanInBlack.

** Those two who survived Balalaika are [[NonActionGuy Rock]] and [[AxCrazy Roberta]]. In other words: a NonActionGuy with the same [[{{Badass}} Badassery]] as a [[AxCrazy crazy]], [[ImplacableMan Implacable]] [[OneManArmy One Woman Army]]. You don't see it often.

** ColonelBadass and DarkActionGirl, Colonel Doctor Irina Spalko in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', ''"Stalin's favourite scientist"''. And man, being a {{Dirty Communist|s}}, [[EvilIsSexy she's a fox]] (CateBlanchett, ladies and gentlemen). She tends to the Klebb area of things, although her form-fitting uniform, use of a well-timed DoubleEntendre and prowess with an edged weapon suggests one could call her Irina Spanko. Indy plays the "guess the accent" game and correctly pins it down to Eastern Ukraine.

* Similar to Dolores Umbridge is the archetypal [[BattleaxeNurse Nurse Ratched]] of ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' fame. Like Umbridge, she's a StepfordSmiler Rosa Klebb who works for TheMan ("the Combine," as Chief Bromden calls it) instead of for DirtyCommunists or ThoseWackyNazis. And like any good Rosa Klebb, she's a physically repulsive, sexually repressed ball-buster who takes out her repression by terrifying men into subservience. Of course, she doesn't rule by sexualized torture, like a Sexpot would do. She rules through subtle intimidation, mind-numbing drugs (administered [[AssShove rectally]] if the patient won't cooperate), and thoroughly ''un''sexy torture (rough baths and enemas, inhumanely-applied electroconvulsive therapy, and if all else fails, {{lobotomy}}). Unlike some other Baroness characters, though, she herself doesn't administer the torture - she outsources it to her {{scary black|man}} {{orderlies|are creeps}} and other medical {{mooks}}.
