!!Delmore
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Delmore_8334.png
->''The Fallen Angel''
->'''Voiced by:''' AkiraIshida
A mysterious demon [[spoiler:possessing Aldra]].
----
* BastardBoyfriend: [[spoiler:In the animated adaptation, he's only manipulating Aldra for his own plans. This is averted in the gamebook continuity, as he's in love with Aldra instead]].
* BigBad - [[spoiler:He is the final enemy Leina and the other girls must face after she defeats Aldra in the final match of the Queen's Blade Tournament, where he reveals his true form.]]
* [[spoiler:CasualtyInTheRing: Subverted: While technically he can't participate in the tournament on the grounds he's male, since the final battle takes place in the same colosseum after the final dual against Aldra, it technically counts as one, as Leina finish him on it, not to mention he has the dubious honor to be the only named character to be killed in the tournament]].
* [[spoiler:DemotedToExtra]]: In the ''Rurou no Senshi'' manga, [[spoiler: he's only mentioned in Aldra's backstory, but he never appears in person, and his only role in the manga is lend Aldra his powers, as she's authentically evil in that adaptation]].
* DependingOnTheArtist: Possibly because he looks a lot like SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, he's portraited in different ways in many media, other than the original gamebooks and the videogames.
* [[spoiler:EldritchAbomination - At least in the anime. In the game books, he looks more like a stereotypical humanoid demon.]]
* {{Expy}}: In the gamebook continuity, from SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker. In the animated continuity, [[spoiler: he looks something between the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angels]] and a [[Anime/FafnerInTheAzureDeadAggressor Festum]]]].
* TheFaceless: In many manga adaptations
* FallenAngel
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead[=/=]BackForTheDead - In the last OVA... only for Tomoe to finish him off for good this time.]]
* TheManBehindTheMan - [[spoiler:He is controlling Aldra, since he doesn't have a body of his own, at least in the anime series.]]
** [[spoiler:UnwittingPawn - But it turns out that the Swamp Witch ''is'' controlling him for her ends during the whole second season.]]
* MythologyGag: In the videogames, the way he summoned by Aldra resembles the same way [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure how Stands are summoned]], since he was intended at first to look like a Stand in his first drafts.
* PsychoLesbian: Only in the English Version, see ShesAManInJapan bellow.
* {{Revenge}}: His main motivation in the animated adaptation as [[spoiler:he wants to get his revenge from Cattleya's family for destroying his physical body in the past, and with Aldra's help, turned Owen into a crystal statue and they do the same with Cattleya]].
* ShesAManInJapan: In the English dub, posibbly due of how [[AkiraIshida his Japanese voice actor sounds]], he was turned in female. The fact he's [[spoiler:an EldritchAbomination in the anime series]] does help.
* TheVoiceless: He doesn't speak at all in the videogames.

!!Werbellia
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Swamp_Witch_6172.png
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/welveria_5495.jpg
->[[BiggerBad The Swamp Witch]]
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JunkoMinagawa

An enigmatic and powerful witch, as well as master of Melona, Menace and Airi. She's revealed the Swamp Witch is a wicked entity who controls Werbellia, the princess of the netherworld, [[spoiler:who is also Aldra and Annelotte's mother.]]
----
* ArtShift: A minor one, but the animated version of her in the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=] looks more younger than her gamebook counterpart, who looks more or less (in human terms) like Cattleya and Melpha regarding age.
* BigBad - She's behind all the events in both seasons and the [=OVAs=]. Made all the more notable by [[spoiler:manipulating Delmore, the demon behind Aldra, as well as manipulating Claudette and cursing almost all the returning characters from the prequel in ''Rebellion'']].
** BiggerBad: And she's also ''the biggest threat'' (excluding the Spiral Chaos games) of all the Queen's Blade universe.
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo: After The Swamp Witch being defeated for good, she's unable to live in the mortal world by herself without the Witch's help for too long, so she must return to the Demon Realm, but she promised both Aldra and Annelotte to return again for the next tournament, this time as a fighter]].
* TheCakeIsALie: [[spoiler:The spirit of the The Swamp Witch summoned Werbellia from the Netherworld, promising her to help the Swamp Witch to conquer the Continent, but her real intentions were really to take over her body instead]].
* CastingGag: It's not the first time Creator/JunkoMinagawa voice a [[spoiler:[[Videogame/{{Catherine}} demon overlord before]]]].
* ConservationOfCompetence: [[spoiler:By the end of ''Rebellion'' almost every single minion she had (excluding Melona, Airi and Dogra) ended being defeated or betraying her.]]
* [[spoiler:DarkLordOnLifeSupport: An interesting subversion: While she doesn't looks like, the "life support" part is ''The Swamp Witch herself'', as she needs her for being able to survive in the mortal realm]].
* DepravedLesbian: Only in the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=] [[spoiler:and in the non-canon alternative ending of the third episode, it's ''heavily'' implied she and her servants raped Leina]].
* TheDreaded: The ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=] finally shows why she is the most ''feared'' being of the whole Continent.
* EvilPlan - [[spoiler:She was controlling Aldra, Delmore and (in ''Rebellion'') Claudette, and her real plans includes turning the Continent into a livingless wasteland, not to mention destroying the Queen's Blade tournament, since it's the only thing that keeps the world's status quo in check.]]
* {{Expy}} - Background-wise, both Werbellia and the Swamp Witch are expies of both Leyla and Karla The Gray Witch respectively from ''RecordOfLodossWar''.
** Also, background-wise, Werbellia is a Expy of [[StarWars Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader]] [[spoiler: being the main villain and also the mother of two of the heroines, in this case Aldra and Annelotte.]]
** While she predates her by a few months, Code Amelias from ''VideoGame/SDGundamGGeneration Overworld'' seem to be based on her, including sharing the same [[Creator/JunkoMinagawa voice actress]].
** In her ghostly persona, she resembles [[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Sosai X]].
* [[spoiler:EvilMatriarch: But not by her own will.]]
* [[spoiler:ForcedIntoEvil: Despise being a demoness and being ''[[NobleDemon technically evil]]'', Werbellia did really cares about her family and her people, but the Swamp Witch (the evil spirit) manipulated her body, so she could be able to use her inmense powers]].
* HornedHumanoid
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Despise being being defeated for good in the Illustrated Stories, she was NOT KilledOffForReal. Annelotte and Aldra took out the Controlling Treasure (that spider-like thing in her crotch where the soul of the real Swamp Witch resides) from their mother Werbellia and managed to free her mother from her influence. At the end of the story, Airi carries the Controlling Treasure, trying to find another host for her mistress.]]
** This also overlaps with [[spoiler:OntologicalInertia, since if she dies, Menace, Captain Liliana, and possibly Airi will die along her, and since the series runs on ContractualImmortality...]]
* GrandTheftMe - The real Swamp Witch doesn't have a body of her own and she needs a real body to use her full powers. For that, she use the body of [[spoiler:Aldra and Annelotte's mother,]] Werbellia, since she's the princess of the Netherworld.
* OmnicidalManiac
* [[spoiler:UnholyMatrimony: Werbellia was married with highest religious authority in the Continent, [[CrystalDragonJesus The Pope Stephan]], despise being a demoness. This was subverted, however, as despise their respective origins, they really loved each other until The Swamp Witch (the evil spirit) sent Stephan ''literally to hell'' for all eternity, driving her to despair]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Not her real name, but her battle name instead: Technically, her nickname should be translated literally as ''The Marshland Witch'' since in Japanese it's written as ''Numachi no Majou'' (沼地の魔女). This also overlaps with NamesTheSame with [[VideoGame/TheWitchAndTheHundredKnight another Swamp Witch, named Metallia]], since Metallia's nickname in Japanese is ''Numa no Majou'' (沼の魔女) who is translated literally as ''The Swamp Witch''. The difference here is one single kanji in Werbellia's nickname over Metallia's one.
* TheVoiceless - She never speaks onscreen, but her minions are the only ones who can understand her in some way or another. She finally speaks in the Rebellion's Drama [=CDs=] and the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=].
* [[HeWhoMustNotBeSeen She Who Must Not Be Seen]] - Inverted: we see her (ghostly) face, but it's not her real form. Her ''Rebellion'''s gamebook reveals she is an humanoid demoness.
* UnexpectedCharacter - You didn't expect her to be a playable character in ''Rebellion'' and not a simple NPC with a backstory behind her just like Delmore, didn't you?

!!Helosium
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/helovqt_8556.png
->''[[ShoutOut The]] [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Divine]] [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Titan]]''
The (so far) only original villain so far from the ''Vanquished Queens'' [=OVAs=], Helosium is a giant monster made with solidified Holy Milk created by [[spoiler:Nanael and Laila when trying to find the way how to destroy the Swamp Witch]] but the experiment goes haywire and it starts to destroy anything on its path.
----
* CanonForeigner: The only original character who doesn't came from the original ''Vanquished Queens'' books and being created especifically for the animated adaptation
* CaptainErsatz: Helosium is basically the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion Unit 01]], except in white and being stripped of its restraining armor. It also shares [[spoiler:the same weakness of the Angels and [=EVAs=] from the same series: The core needs to be destroyed for stopping it for good]].
* GoneHorriblyWrong: [[spoiler:Nanael and Laila created it for destroying the Swamp Witch for good, but the creature goes into a destructive rampage and both girls, with the help of Airi, have to destroy it]].
* {{Homage}}: The entire episode when Helosium is created is a big, wacky, homage towards ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and the purpose for what the Evangelions were created, except replace the enemy they have to destroy from ''Angels''[[note]]Extra hilarity the ones who created it were ''angels''.[[/note]] with ''The Swamp Witch'' and the whole thing going berserk, just like the EVA-01 does many times. [[spoiler:Not to mention the way Helosium is destroyed resembles the same way the Fifth Angel was destroyed during Operation Yashima in the same series]]. With extra stuff from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' as well.
* HumanoidAbomination: Just like the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion EVAs]] and the [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Titans]].
* ShoutOut: As being a giant ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' homage isn't being enough, some of Helosium's attack methods resembles the ones used by the [[Manga/AttackOnTitan Titans]] including trying to eat Laila alive.
** Not to mention the way how Helosium is destroyed for good: [[spoiler:Being destroyed using Laila's Holy Milk cannon like a sniper rifle towards its core, just like the [=EVA-01=]'s Positron Rifle used against Ramiel the Fifth Angel during Operation Yashima]].

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/qbsctwins_2616.jpg
->''The Priestesses of Chaos''
->''Voiced by'': Creator/AkiToyosaki (both)
----
* BackFromTheDead - After you though you killed them for good in ''Queen's Blade Spiral Chaos'', they return again in the sequel, but this time as your allies, and you have to help them.
* BigBad - In ''Queen's Blade Spiral Chaos'', but they return in the sequel as your allies.
* CreepyTwins

->''The Conqueror of Darkness''
->'''Voiced by''': RieKugimiya
----
* BigBad - of ''Queen's Gate Spiral Chaos''.
* CaptainErsatz - The {{Mecha}} that Weiss is piloting is basically a [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Dimensional Beast]] except being mechanical rather than organic.
* CastingGag: It's not the first time RieKugimiya voiced a [[MobileSuitGundam00 villainess piloting a giant robot before]].
* EvilSoundsDeep: While not being the first time her voice actress voiced a villain, her voice is notable to sound like [[Manga/FullMetalAlchemist Alphonse Elric]], except her voice is even more deeper and artificially distorted to sound even more creepier than she normally sounds.
* InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha - She's basically a girl piloting a giant robot, and you have you fight against her ''on foot''.
* IronicName - Also overlaps with MeaningfulName, since her name means "white" in German, but her robot is painted black.
* TalkingToHerself: With [[RieKugimiya Rana and Melona]].

The BigBad in ''Grimoire'', who is the culprit behind Melfareland's eternal winter and the one everyone must destroy with the Queen's Blade sword.

* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: So far, we don't know much about the entity behind the whole mess, and unlike the Swamp Witch and other villains, we don't even know even ''his or her gender''.
