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. Or He may simply be a [[ILoveTheDead necrophile]] and/or a phonophile (which is not someone aroused by telephones, but actually the sort of person who'd make a SnuffFilm ) like other serial killers. If he has a pattern of cheating on his current wife with the woman who will become his next wife, it's RemarriedToTheMistress.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ramsay has a penchant for killing lovers who bore him, as Myranda is pleased to explain and enumerate for Sansa.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
** Downplayed by House Bolton, which goes through wives (and other... sources of entertainment) at a ''very'' alarming rate. Ramsay has killed only one and severely domestically abused the other -- although it's pretty plain he'd probably increase the number of horribly dead wives, given the chance. He's hardly secretive about it, either. However, his father has gone through two wives under mysterious circumstances, as well. House Bolton has, from time to time, had this reputation for centuries. Increasingly while reading, you suspect it's not been without cause. And, probably, played rather straighter for some than others.

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'':
''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' gives us many reasons to ask questions before marriage:
** Downplayed Not that King Maegor "the Cruel" Targaryen allowed his [[ShotgunWedding six brides]] many questions back in the day. Of those six, however, "only" three wound up dying, one possibly not by his hand. However, the spirit of the trope was very much alive and well.

* ''BrunoTheBandit'' tries this as one of his many schemes in [[http://www.brunothebandit.com/d/20010507.html Old Money.]] Too bad his new "beloved" turns out to be not just an old rich woman, but also the BlackWidow.

* Nikolai Belinski, the Russian soldier in ''VideoGame/NaziZombies'', has murdered at least five of his wives. Some of his weapon pickup quotes have him remarking on how it's the same one he shot one of them with. To be fair though, she was a bitch.

* H.H. Holmes, born Henry Muddgett was one of America's first known and prolific serial killers and was even called "The Modern Bluebeard" by the press of the day. Curiously, however, Holmes was actually an inversion of the trope because despite being in the exact situations as his victims, he never murdered the women he properly married. Instead he would kill his secretaries, female lodgers and random wealthy-seeming women he would lure back to his massive Chicago home (which has been specifically engineered as a massive death trap/torture dungeon/mad science lab.
