* In ''CodeMonkeys'', Gameavision head honcho Larrity has had seven wives, all of which have died under mysterious circumstances. Added to the creepiness factor is that he has several of them stuffed and on display in either his office or his vault.

** Gregor Clegane doesn't have any known children. That's because his wives (and other partners) tend to die before they have a chance to either conceive or give birth thanks to horrific DomesticAbuse and his general ForTheEvulz tendencies. It is known that he's been married a few times (certainly twice). The problem is, none of his wives ever gets given a name. Nor is anybody, even in-universe, quite sure how many times he ''has'' actually been married. Even his brother doesn't know: not that Sandor would have bothered to keep track, anyway. He knows what his brother is like... all too well.
** Cregan Karstark has, like Gregor and Roose above, had two wives for (presumably) political reasons. Both are also rather suspiciously dead without any children having had the chance to occur. [[spoiler: He was planning on a third wife (his cousin)... except she made a break for it and put a spanner in that plan of his and his father's. Even describing this trope as one of her major reasons ''why'' she's wild about the idea of [[TakeAThirdOption Taking A Third Option]], as she quite honestly assumes that she'd also wind up "accidentally" dying. With the caveat on only after her produced at least one male heir for Karhold to solidify his hold on her claim to it.]]

Unlike the BlackWidow, the Bluebeard is rarely motivated by {{greed}}, though in RealLife, historically that was a fairly common motivation. Often, he just does it for [[MonsterMisogyny kicks]] or as the epitome of DomesticAbuse.

DomesticAbuse. If he has a pattern of cheating on his current wife with the woman who will become his next wife, it's RemarriedToTheMistress.

* ''The Haunt of Fear'' (one of the original 1950s comics on which ''TalesFromTheCrypt'' is based) had a one-off story about a woman who discovers her new husband is Bluebeard's great-great-grandson and has indeed killed off all his previous wives. Predictably, he kills her as well so she can't tell anyone.
