* The main trio of ''Anime/LittleWitchAcademia'' maps to this as well, even though they are all the same ago (around 15 or so). Akko is the maiden (new to magic, impulsive and youthfully exuberant). Lott is the mother (caring, nurturing, sweet disposition), and Sucy is the crone (Pale skin, jagged teeth, and more mature than the other two)

Compared with TheThreeFacesOfEve, the maiden combines the naivety of the child with the sexuality of the seductress, the mother combines the liveliness of the child with the maturity of the wife, and the crone maps most closely to the wise, levelheaded wife. However, the sexuality of the Hecate Sisters is very likely mutable -- if the Maiden is a young girl, then the mother might take on the role of [[StacysMom an experienced and sensual woman,]] who happens to be maternal as well.

** The Sand Snakes also fit. Shape-tougued Obara is the Crone, sexy Nym is the Matron (in the sense of a confident and mature woman), and innocent, or at least seemingly innocent, Tyrene is the Maiden.

** The Queens, the three female players in King's Landing after the Tyrells arrive fit the theme, even though one of them is on the opposing side to the other two. And they play their roles in a rather dark tone: Margaery Tyrell is the likely less innocent than she appears, rising Queen, ostensibly the Maiden - also a widow after two kings, and the wife of a third, officially remaining a virgin (truthfully or not) because her husband is a child. Cersei Lannister is the psychotic Queen Mother, loathing being replaced and undergoing SanitySlippage after one of her children is killed... by the Crone, Olenna Tyrell, not royalty herself, but nicknamed "Queen of Thorns", wise and ruthless politician who actually pulls the strings around while looking like a harmless, if cranky, old lady.

Added DiffLines:

* In Maria Turtschaninoff's ''Literature/{{Maresi}}'', the women of the red abbey worship a goddess who has these three aspects. Each aspect is represented by one of the sisters, but not each sister has to be one of these; most have positions that are just job descriptions and do not fall inside this scheme.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' had one of these for the Winter and Summer Courts of fairies -- Each court is ruled by three Queens—Queen Mother (The Queen Who Was), Queen (The Queen Who Is), and Lady (The Queen Who Is To Come) who are also grandmother, mother, and daughter.
** Explicitly pointed out in ''Skin Game'', when the crew encounters two statues of Hecate in the Underworld, displaying the three Queens of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts respectively. It also leads to a CMOF, as Harry does a truly ''[[BadLiar awful]]'' job of [[spoiler: concealing Molly's ascension to Winter Lady from her father when he points out the similarity.]]

daughter. In the short story "Cold Case" it is revealed the titles of Crone, Mother, and Maiden are enforced upon the bearers of the mantles, resulting in [[spoiler:the Lady unable to even come close to having sex with a man out of risk she might become a mother and destroy her mantle as her mantle will override her and violently attack her would-be sexual partner. It is implied the same thing will happen if one tries having sex with the Queen Mother]]. The connection to Hectate herself is pointed out in ''Skin Game'', when the crew encounters two statues of Hecate in the Underworld, displaying the three Queens of the Seelie and Unseelie Courts respectively.

* Amethyst, Pearl, and Garnet fit this well in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': Amethyst is the youngest of the three and acts the most childest. Pearl, though skinny as a rail, is eccentric in her love for Steven's mother Rose and acts the most motherly towards Steven. Garnet is able to see into the future, and she controls her emotions better than the other two.
