The Sexpot type of Baroness can sometimes overlap with TheVamp, 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.

** Nastasha Zabikov from ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'' is a rare case of a (mostly) heroic version. She is, for the most part, a Sexpot type largely resembling the ''TropeNamer'', and starts off fairly neutral, being Argo's personal warden assigned to him by the Neo-Russian government, but soon enough she recognizes the danger that the [[BigBad Devil Gundam]] poses to her government and to the whole of mankind, and does not hesitate to help the [[FiveManBand Gundam Fighters]] against [[TheDragon Master Asia]] in the Guyana Highlands as well as in the final battle against the Devil Gundam itself in space. It's implied that, having [[DefrostingIceQueen thawed]] to Argo through the course of events, they both went on to have a romantic relationship and live together as ''SpacePirates'' after the end of the series.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'''s Beatrice fits most of the personality aspects of the sexpot to a T, with an emphasis on the sadism.

The '''Sexpot''' is, as you'd expect, young-ish and sexy. Her sadism or (in milder versions) fervent militarism is presented as at least a bit enticing to our (male) hero, [[VillainessesWantHeroes whom she's likely to be attracted to despite herself.]] [[DefrostingIceQueen Her ice-queen facade is pretty likely to crack a little]] before the story is over. Her chances of surviving the story are variable to good, depending on how much she lets herself [[HighHeelFaceTurn fall for our hero]]. Most sexpot Baronesses like to WhipItGood.

The '''Rosa Klebb''' (named for the ''Film/JamesBond'' villain) is middle-aged and very much not attractive, but is more likely to be the BigBad herself rather than just working for him. She is immune to the hero's charms, and ominous emphasis is placed upon her utter asexuality, or upon hints that she [[PsychoLesbian likes the ladies]]. Bond-type heroes will be horrified by her, like she had three heads. No matter what, she ''will'' be dead as a doornail before the credits roll. No exceptions.

* Diana from ''Series/{{V}}'' is the Sexpot variety. She's beautiful and sadistic, although those who know that she's an evil reptile underneath her human skin are understandably disgusted. She proves herself more extreme than any of her comrades and ends up as the primary villain.

** For a given definition of "class", perhaps. She looks and acts as though she rents by the hour.
*** Well, she ''was'' a late-1500s woman-of-the-town who was dying of a vicious STD before the Master turned her. She seemed to begin to revert to this whenever her will wasn't being enslaved to the [[DracoInLeatherPants sheer]] monstrousness of her would-be childe.

* ''SinCity'' has an organization for assassins called The Guild. There are three women who fit this mold: Mariah, Blue Eyes, and Maxine.

** Inspired by [[TruthInTelevision real-life]] SS ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_guards_in_Nazi_concentration_camps Aufseherinnen]]'' (female concentration camp guards and overseers) such as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irma_Grese Irma Grese]], who was ''incredibly'' sadistic with the prisoners of her camp, especially the women; and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilse_Koch Ilse Koch]], who infamously had [[GenuineHumanHide gloves and lampshades]] made from the skin of the prisoners of her husband's concentration camp. The film conveniently ignores the fact that no woman was ever the commandant of a Nazi prison camp.

* [[ManipulativeBitch Cassandra Nova]] from the ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' is a Rosa Klebb-type and also one of the most dangerous adversaries of the team. She is Charles Xavier's EvilTwin, made all the more threatening for being elderly, unattractive, and [[BaldWomen bald]].
* Madame Hydra, a.k.a. The Viper, is a sexpot variation of the trope and one of ''CaptainAmerica'''s most prominent foes, being one of the primary leaders of the villainous organization ComicBook/{{HYDRA}}. Madame Hydra has also had a run-in with ''{{Wolverine}}'', along with several other heroes.
