For years, an unfortunate cocktail of censorship and bigotry rendered all lesbian characters on screen exclusively psychotic and villainous. UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode-era requirements that "deviant" characters (and that included all gay characters of either gender) must not be made sympathetic or rewarded meant that such characters [[BuryYourGays would almost inevitably be toast]] before the final credits rolled - and this convention has persisted long after the demise of the Code itself.

This trope can sometimes carry [[UnfortunateImplications uncomfortable subtext]]: go straight or go crazy. Or ''at least'' [[BrokenAesop have the decency of being bisexual]] so you can be [[GirlOnGirlIsHot of proper use for men.]]

The Psycho Lesbian will often be a villainess for a HideYourLesbians couple; two women who care for each other but don't actually say it out loud.

See DepravedHomosexual for the male equivalent. See HeteronormativeCrusader for when another character considers a lesbian to be psycho simply for being lesbian. See also LoveMakesYouEvil, LoveMakesYouCrazy, and {{Yandere}} for more general tropes that are closely related.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Kagari from ''Anime/BlackRockShooter''. [[spoiler:A pure example for the first two episodes of the series, with her crush on Yomi Takanashi]]
* Semmerling from ''Anime/RidingBean''. Add to that the fact that she's a shameless pedophile and a ManipulativeBastard (maybe even a MagnificentBastard; she also displays elements of TheChessmaster and may be a sociopathic example of TheTrickster), and she's well on her way to fitting every negative stereotype of the screen lesbian.
* Shirai Kuroko from ''[[LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex To Aru Majutsu no Index]]'' and ''[[Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun To Aru Kagaku no Railgun]]''. However unlike most examples, Kuroko is a ''heroic'' use of this character type, who spends half her time stalking/fondling/trying to seduce her Mikoto-{{oneesama}} and the other half being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure [=/=] LittleMissBadass.
* From ''MahouSenseiNegima'', we have secondary villain Tsukuyomi. She starts as a mere PunchClockVillain with shades of PsychopathicWomanchild and a crush on her [[SempaiKohai ex-sempai]] Setsuna Sakurazaki, but as time passes, she becomes [[StalkerWithACrush really, *really*, creepily obsessed with Setsuna]]. And also seems to derive sexual pleasure from murder. And it gets more explicit. She's also probably the only villain in the series who's evil with no AntiVillain tendencies or FreudianExcuse for her actions, which just makes her even creepier than most other bad guys.
* Played for laughs with Anna from ''Manga/HeIsMyMaster''.
* DarkActionGirl Rimelda Jorg from ''Anime/{{Madlax}}''. Again, contrast with Madlax's other potential love interest, Vanessa.
* The results of ''Anime/MaiHime'''s WhamEpisode altered many characterizations, including the [[TheOjou kind and serene]] Shizuru who went a bit nuts near the end.
** ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'' itself had one in Tomoe. While most of the Coral Otomes loved Shizuru and looked up to her as a heroic figure, Tomoe was actually ''[[StalkerWithACrush in love]]'' with her, and at one point attempted to kidnap and seduce her (in a decidedly [[{{Squick}} creepy fashion]]). This, coupled with her [[{{Yandere}} mean-spirited attitude]] toward some of the other characters had [[TheScrappy turned fan support against her]], though an attempt at a comedic makeover of her character in ''Zwei'' (similar to the one Shiho received in her transition from ''Anime/MaiHime'') tried to soften the blow somewhat.
* Kuroko, the main character of ''Manga/{{Murcielago}}''. Interestingly, her being psycho is the main focus, while her being a lesbian is treated as a side note.
* Ryofu Housen from ''[[Manga/IkkiTousen Ikkitousen]]'' skirts this trope, though she can also be seen as a female DepravedBisexual. Slightly subverted, as her ''girlfriend'' Chinkyuu is the one who brings up her PetTheDog moments.
** Kan'u Unchou ''almost'' ended up as one of these, what with [[BodyguardCrush her devotion to Ryuubi]] being [[{{Flanderization}} taken to extremes]] in the third series. She did not, fortunately, as it only happened because she was kind of BrainwashedAndCrazy due to an amulet that goes to extract her deepest desire [[CannotSpitItOut that thus far she managed to hide]]. After the hijinx, her relationship returned normal [[spoiler: and got [[RelationshipUpgrade upgraded]] at the end of the series]].
* Mylanda Arker Walder from ''Anime/BattleAthletes''.
* From ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'' FINAL we have one of the 11 Soul Masters, Pillnus. She takes a special...interest in [[ActionGirl Renais/Renee]], loving beating her in combat and putting her into...compromising positions. It's even implied she ''raped'' her.
* Ran Asuka from ''Manga/DevilmanLady'', who discovers and largely manipulates the lead character Jun Fudou, seems to be attracted to her, or at least her superpowers.
* Goldie Musou from ''Manga/GunsmithCats''. She's a drug-dealing Mafia boss whose AmazonChaser fetishes leads her attempting to abduct and brainwash Rally Vincent, and then succeeding in doing so to Misty, with heavy hints that she raped Misty after brainwashing her into loving her. [[spoiler: What irritates many fans is that Goldie ends up as a KarmaHoudini; not only does VetinariJobSecurity ensure she remains the local Mafia boss, but she also gets to ''keep'' an arguably still-brainwashed Misty as her lover in her own "happily ever after".]]
* Yoko from ''Hana no Asuka-gumi''.
* Mika from ''Anime/KyoshiroToTowaNoSora''.
* [[TheOphelia Ophelia]] from ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' shows heavy signs of this thanks to her CombatSadomasochist tendencies. Roxanne even more so, with her habit of crushing on more powerful Claymores, [[IJustWantToBeYou copying their appearances]] and [[PowerCopying special techniques]], and then sadistically arranging their deaths.
* Nina Einstein of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', the cast's resident {{meganekko}} and [[TheScrappy racist]] who instantly falls head over heels in love with Eupehemia [[RescueRomance after her life is saved by the princess]], so much so that she [[CargoShip masturbates to pictures of Euphie using the edge of a table]]. After [[spoiler: Euphemia's death]], the girl '''[[{{Yandere}} really]]''' [[{{Yandere}} becomes unhinged]], enough to [[spoiler:try to destroy Tokyo with a [[FantasticNuke Sakuradite-bomb]] to kill Euphemia's killer, Zero and]] let [[EvilMentor Prince Schneizel]] [[MoreThanMindControl recruit and manipulate her]] into becoming a part of a research project that creates a nuclear weapon to wipe the Japanese race from existence. [[spoiler: She [[CharacterDevelopment gets over]] her madness ''and'' her racism, though. Not that the UnpleasableFanbase (or at least a part of it) acknowledges it. And not before having ''another'' FreakOut as she saw [[SphereOfDestruction what her bomb]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kOUZLaxzjE can do]]...]] Part of the reason is she makes some of the most disturbing [[http://i45.tinypic.com/21jng3s.jpg facial expressions ever...of all time]]
* B-Ko Daitokuji from ''Anime/ProjectAKo'' is a textbook example. While she is never explicitly called a lesbian, her affection for C-Ko clearly goes way beyond "pure affection," and sends her into increasingly over-the-top jealous rages against A-Ko, eventually involving military-grade weaponry and an invading alien armada (even though A-Ko and C-Ko's friendship is clearly only platonic, a point which is utterly lost on B-Ko.) For their part, A-Ko and C-Ko's relentless failure to acknowledge or even notice B-Ko's crush is probably a contributing factor in B-Ko's rage spiral. By the last two movies in the original setting, though, she could be called a "Psycho Bisexual", as she immediately "falls in love" with the same handsome biker that A-ko has her heart set on. That could just be her taking rivalry to the extreme, and/or reflect her intense envy of A-ko. Ironically, her dimensional counterpart in the "Vs." [=OAVs=] is nothing like her, and is even on fairly good terms with her dimension's version of A-ko.
* ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth II'' has the delightfully bipolar (dementedly schizo might be a better descriptor) and certifiably psychotic Nova, whose switch every few moments from sweet and childish declarations of affection to a raving engine of powerful magical destruction can be a bit jarring. Although the circumstances of her consuming longing for Hikaru and the origin of both her and her madness are rather unique and in her own case most likely constitute use of this trope as a justified one.
* Asami Hoshino from ''Anime/MyselfYourself'', who was so in love with Shuri that she ended up causing the very object of her affection to leave. Though not before defending her from an AxCrazy old lady.
* Shiori in ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'', although her PhlebotinumBreakdown may have helped. Then again, she was a bit messed up to begin with.
* Chikane Himemiya in the ''Manga/KannazukiNoMiko'' manga. [[spoiler: It later gets subverted when it's [[BatmanGambit revealed to be an act to fool the Orochi]] so she can destroy his support from within and manipulate Himeko to kill her, so they can activate the sacificial ritual to save the world [[RetGone without removing her beloved Himeko from existence]].]] Though it can be argued that [[spoiler: such a human being who is capable of performing such actions at all could not possibly be viewed as 100% "mentally healthy".....]] There's UnfortunateImplications about how she's so EasilyForgiven and ''idolized'' by fandom for such actions... likely just because she's a woman and GirlOnGirlIsHot.
* Subverted to a point in ''Manga/CynthiaTheMission''. BigBad Cybele is a cruel, evil sociopath who has a tendency for cutesyness and being generally cheery and nice when she's not killing. She's also a lesbian, but there's nothing psycho about it.
** Also a subversion from the same manga, Takaya Kanae is a sweet, kind, gentle schoolgirl who has kissed more then a few girls in her day. Not psycho at all by any means... until you get to her alternate personality, Shii, who is a psychotic, evil man who will do anything to protect the innocent Takaya, while leaving her mostly unaware of his protection.
* In ''The Disappearance of LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', [[spoiler: the Ryoko Asakura of the AlternateUniverse]] ''seems'' to have somewhat Psycho Lesbian tendencies towards [[spoiler: Yuki Nagato. Given to that she's a normal human, yet ''still'' ends up stabbing Kyon to protect Yuki.]]
** She even waits for her at the school at 4:00 AM!
** And in the movie she seems even worse, sprinkling [[spoiler: Yuki]] with blood from her knife as she dances around in front of her...
* Kasumi Kisaragi, the vice-president in the 2006 version of ''Kujibiki Unbalance'', especially in the manga adaptation, where she tries to kill Chihiro when a love potion causes her to be attracted to him.
* Rio in ''Gamerz Heaven'' ...she doesn't seem to have any sanity whatsoever when it comes to Kyouko.
* [[spoiler: Yui]] from ''Manga/FushigiYuugi'' is speculated to be one of these for [[spoiler: Miaka]]. "I couldn't find a place between you and [[spoiler: Tamahome!]]", indeed!
* Played for laughs with Chizuru Honshou of ''Manga/{{Bleach}}''. Two words: [[Funny/{{Bleach}} "Karakura Raizer!"]] She is very disturbed in many ways which is best depicted when she asks what a little girl's cup size is.
* Liang Qi in ''Anime/{{Canaan}}'' is psychotically devoted to her adoptive "nee-sama" Alphard, and those who try to get in the way of the two of them being together tend to meet with her full AxCrazy wrath.
* Kosame in ''Manga/GirlsBravo''. Her actions towards Kirie are played up [[BlackComedyRape as comedy]].
** There is also Hijiri the kids' teacher who turns out to be working for the series' BigBad and after fighting Kirie develops a similar attitude towards her. Before that it's mentioned that Hijiri had been obsessed with Miharu since childhood.
* Nami in ''Aki Sora''. She starts out with a MatchmakerCrush involving her best friend Kana and her brother Sora, but after the date she set them up on went far beyond her expectations, she [[spoiler:confronts Sora that evening, shoves him down, stops just shy of cutting off his penis with some scissors ("Hey... can I have this?"), rapes him while fantasizing that she has a penis and is having sex with Kana, and threatens afterward to cut his penis off for real if he ever tells anyone]].
* The second season of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' has Mina Hazuki, [[FanNickname a.k.a.]] "Japanese Lesbian Catwoman". She's a Contractor who DoesNotLikeMen and [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace shows absolutely no respect]] for the personal space of her female teammates, who she constantly hits on. The "psycho" comes from a combination of the usual Contractor LackOfEmpathy and a StalkerWithACrush attitude towards Kirihara.
** Actually, even though she's extremely forward at first, she takes being rejected by Kirihara [[TheStoic fairly]] [[EmotionlessGirl well]], all things considered. [[spoiler: It's after Youko is brutally murdered, seemingly by Hei, that [[TranquilFury things]] [[ItsPersonal get]] [[LetsGetDangerous dangerous]].]]
* In ''LightNovel/{{Kampfer}}'', the BigBad, [[spoiler:Kaede, is a Psycho Lesbian with the hots for the main character's [[AttractiveBentGender female form]].]]
** [[spoiler: [[UnfortunateImplications For bonus points]], while the rest of the female cast [[GirlOnGirlIsHot show some bisexual tendencies]] [[DepravedBisexual and have their crazy sides]], Kaede herself - the only 100% gay character - is portrayed as the worst.]]
* ''Anime/{{Mnemosyne}}'' has Sayara and Laura.
* Miharu from ''LightNovel/BakaAndTestSummonTheBeasts'' is crazily in love with Minami. Her solution to anyone who happens to get between her and Minami is to try to MurderTheHypotenuse.
* Kokoa from ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' is utterly obsessed with the vampire side of her half-sister Moka.
** Akuha of manga season II is revealed to be one of these for [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer Moka]].
* Double subverted with Suruga from ''LightNovel/{{Bakemonogatari}}'' who is dangerously in love with Hitagi. She is actually a perfectly pleasant person, even to Koyomi, her crush's boyfriend. But she unconsciously wishes that Koyomi would disappear, and when the sun goes down her demonic hand takes control over her and tries to grant her wish, which means trying to beat Koyomi to death twice. There's also the fact that she starts stalking Koyomi after he hooks up with Hitagi.
* [[spoiler:Urushira]] from ''Bondage Fairies Extreme''. There's [[SplitPersonality more]] [[UnluckyChildhoodFriend to her]] than that, though.
* ''Manga/ZombieLoan'': The school nurse from the first two episodes, also Koyomi's "other" personality Yomi has a definite fondness for groping Michiru's breasts and attempting to molest her. Though the AssPull-ed its way out of this one by saying that [[spoiler:Yomi's spirit is actually that of a boy.]]
* ''Manga/PrettyFace'': Nozomi would go to great lengths to get Rando (as Yuna) into her bed.
* ''Manga/VenusVersusVirus'': Sumire, in Berserker mode! It's a little bit subtle as she is violent with the Viruses and more sexual (in a rape sort of way) with Lucia, as at one point she says they should "become one."
** Also, Lucia appears to be this in the anime, when she stakes Sumire's boyfriend.
* ''Manga/WJuliet'': Nomura Tsugumi, Ito's senpai by one year, doesn't make it a secret that she wants "Ito-kun" for herself and can sometimes behave as a Psycho Lesbian for comedy relief.
* Mao Nonosaka from ''Manga/MiraiNikki''. [[spoiler: She helps Hinata in her scheme to kill Akise, despite the fact that Hinata was only doing it to gain her father's approval. After Hinata apologizes for taking advantage of Mao's feelings, she actually tries to kill Yukiteru. Hinata herself doesn't really snap until Yuno stabs Mao.]]
* ''Manga/NagasareteAirantou'': Mikoto.
* Uruka from ''Anime/SteelAngelKurumi2'' for Nako. Uruka sees Kurumi as an obstacle to Nako and will try anything to remove Kurumi, even if it means asking her father to call upon the family's private army to take her down.
* Chloe of ''Anime/{{Noir}}'' fits this, but only in her final appearance. She met the lesbian criteria the entire time, but she doesn't turn psycho until after Kirika rejects (or more accurately, fails to even notice) her advances, and then acts to protect Mireille from her, causing her to snap.
* Reimi from ''Manga/BambooBlade'' has [[StalkerWithACrush stalked]] Miyako from the shadows ever since the latter had [[CuteAndPsycho brutally]] rebuffed the advances of the former's crush in middle school (though the two attend different high schools). It soon emerges that, rather than wanting revenge on the boy's behalf, Reimi had become enamoured with how cool Miyako looked; she even has {{nosebleed}}s when she recalls the incident. However, she's not exactly the most subtle of stalkers; during a kendo sparring session between the two schools, Reimi walks right into the dojo, claiming to be in the photography club, and spends the whole time taking pictures of the weary Miyako.
* Rin "Clone" Yatagai towards Nao in episode 11 of ''Manga/OniichanNoKotoNankaZenzenSukiJaNaiNDakaraNe'' She ends up [[AccidentalKiss accidently]] [[ForcefulKiss kissing Iroha]] and falls in love with her instead much to Iroha's horror.
* ''Manga/KaguyaHime'': Although a bondage-wearer perv, Maggey is nice enough to be mostly harmless (beyond groping of strangers), and Chun-Lan is funny more than anything... but Mayu can get seriously scary.
* ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'': In the first anime, a LesbianVampire character named Boobanshee/Bubbancy (actually a corruption of a Baobhan sith, pronounced roughly the same way in Japanese) tricks the entire Hellsing organization, save Seras and Alucard, into thinking that she is Integra's sister, Laura (a reference to ''Literature/{{Carmilla}}''). Later, she attempts to drink Integra's blood, and bites and licks her chest after partially undressing her, after which Integra realizes that she has no sister; shortly after Bubbancy is dispatched and Integra refers to her as Countess Karnstein (another ''Carmilla'' reference). She also licks Integra's blood from her hand after stabbing her.
* ''Manga/{{Saki}}'': Touka has a rather unhealthy obssession on [[strike:Nodoka]] Nodocchi. "I'm going to lick you all over and savor this delectable favor" anyone?
* ''Manga/{{Tactics}}'': The yuki-onna in the first episode (When she's possessed by an aradama, anyway.)
* ''[[LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero Zero no Tsukaima]]'': A LovePotion in season 3 episode 6 turns most of the girls into one of these. Also, Janette based on subtext. In the opening for the fourth season there's a part where Janette hugs a struggling Louise close and [[LecherousLicking licks her face]]. And in episode 2 of the fourth season Janette licks Louise on the face again and practically flirts with her calling her "cute and innocent" after slashing her with a poisoned knife.
* Chiffon Fairchild from ''Manga/{{Freezing}}'', especially in the {{Spinoff}} Manga ''Freezing: First Chronicle''. To wit, in the first half of the manga: she strips her roommate Ticy and [[SkinshipGrope playfully gropes her breasts]]. It's implied a little later that they went further. In the second half: [[spoiler: She [[CurbStompBattle slaughters]] 50 of her classmates ([[GoodThingYouCanHeal no actual ''deaths'']] but arms and legs fly left and right, nonetheless). The whole time she was muttering about wanting to 'destroy everything' and she is just a muscle reaction away from ''[[KilledOffForReal killing]]'' the 2nd ranked Pandora of her year before Ticy stops her with an [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Speech]]. All this with a [[PsychoticSmirk smile]] on her face.]] Oh and her nickname is [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Monster of West Genetics]].
* 'Cockroach' Oki of ''Manga/{{Arachnid}}'' is an interesting case - her psychotic crush on the main character, Alice, actually makes her ''less'' dangerous, and soon results in a HeelFaceTurn. Subsequently, she's still a Psycho Lesbian, but also one of Alice's only friends and most useful allies, thanks to her total lack of ulterior motives beyond getting into our heroine's pants.
* A one shot yuri manga by the name of ''Rapunzel'' turns it UpToEleven with not one, but two of them. [[spoiler:One cuts off the hair of the other in a fit of [[{{Yandere}} jealous rage]], and then the one who had her hair cut [[{{Squick}} cuts out]] [[EyeScream the eyes]] of the other [[SerialEscalation as revenge]]. To top it off, the girl who did the cutting of the hair ''let her eyes be cut out'' '''while smiling'''. At the very end, they're both shown smiling and holding each others hands in the conclusion. LoveMakesYouCrazy indeed.]]
* Echidna from ''Anime/QueensBlade'' uses this as part of her mercenary gig, though she is less of the former and more of the later.
** The same series also gives us the sociopathically self-centered Elina Vance, who in the first episode goes off on a rant about how she'll torture the man who ends up marrying the woman she loves. Oh, and did we mention the woman she loves is [[BrotherSisterIncest her elder sister]]?
* ''[[{{Gaiking}} Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu]]'' has [[spoiler: Proist, the BigBad, and the only character in the show who could probably be called more evil than simply self-serving or misguided]]. She's only shown to have affection for her father and for Vestaanu. She is also completely unpredictable, casually [[AMillionIsAStatistic executing thousands who don't live up to her standards]], and can and will [[HairTriggerTemper fly into a rage at the slightest provocation]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Purgatori, the [[LesbianVampire lesbian vampire demon]] originally created by Brian Pulido as an antagonist for his main {{stripperiffic}} heroine, ComicBook/LadyDeath. She may actually be a DepravedBisexual, having once been Satan's concubine, but all of the (semi-)consensual relationships we've seen have had her with women.
* The [[GenderFlip Lady Lemongrabs]], from the ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' Fionna and Cake comic book series. The "lesbian" part seems to be incidental, as they're the genderswapped versions of characters who were VERY AmbiguouslyGay and happened to also be clinically insane.
* The Daughters of the Amazon in ''ComicBook/YTheLastMan'' are frequently branded psycho lesbians by other women (they're certainly psycho, and have [[StrawFeminist little use for men]]). Subverted in that a) we never see any lesbian behavior among the Amazons and b) discreet lesbianism (especially with male impersonators) quickly becomes the norm in a world deprived of men. One of the few openly lesbian characters simply describes the Amazons as "nutters who cut off their norks".
** They're likely "political lesbians" - heterosexual radical feminists who "became lesbians" for ideological reasons. Many real lesbians don't like them because their stance reinforces the fallacy pushed by homophobes that homosexuality is a choice. Another complaint from quite a few real lesbians who have been in relationships with political lesbians are that political lesbians are often unenthusiastic about gay sex, which the comic is probably pointing out.
* Inverted in the case of Victoria Hand in ''ComicBook/DarkReign''. She is a lesbian (or perhaps bisexual) and easily the most sane of all of Norman Osborn's [[LegionOfDoom subordinates]] (Osborn himself included), but that might not be saying too much when everyone else is a PsychoForHire at best and EldritchAbomination at worse.
* This is the subtext to Ursula Imada's obsession with Sundra Peale in ''Nexus''. By the time of Ursula's [[spoiler:death]], it was only just barely subtext. Averted with Jil, who is a lesbian but not at all psycho, and Sundra, who is clearly bi and also not at all psycho.
* Inverted with [[VillainousHarlequin Harley Quinn]] and [[PlantPerson Poison Ivy]] in [[Franchise/TheDCU DC Comics]]. Their relationship with each other is probably the sanest either of them has.
* Not the point of the alt comic ''Hothead Paisan: Homicidal Lesbian Terrorist''; although it may have addressed this trope at times, it's more a spoof of StrawFeminist fears.
* Nearly every major lesbian/bisexual female character in Marvel continuity has been assigned some degree of mental instability. The bisexual [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Skein]], for instance, married an older man and then killed him for his money; [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} Man-Killer/Amazon]] used to be a man-hating militant feminist; [[ComicBook/TheOrder Mulholland Black]] went so crazy [[spoiler:that her own teammates put her down]], etc. Even the ones without criminal pasts have been portrayed as less than fully sane; The ''[[ComicBook/TheLoners Loners]]'' miniseries portrayed bisexual [[ComicBook/PowerPack Lightspeed]] as being the superhero equivalent of a FormerChildStar, with all the attendant mental baggage, while the lesbian [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Karolina Dean]] is bipolar, according to the Marvel Handbooks.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Film]]
* The sadistic Nazi Ingrid in Roberto Rossellini's seminal classic ''Rome, Open City'' (1945). Ingrid plies her targets with luxuries like narcotics and fine clothes in order to gather information on the Italian resistance in Rome; eventually disposing of them when they outlive their usefulness. The young woman she seduces doesn't come off too well either, but she's desperate, bitter, and impoverished in war-torn Rome and is somewhat easier to sympathize with.
* Eve Harrington from ''Film/AllAboutEve'' (1950). Not outright stated, but quite explicit for the era, including a one-scene SpearCarrier whose presence is all but impossible to explain any other way.
* The Great Tyrant in ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'' (1968), even hooking the titular character up to an Orgasmmachine, planning to kill her through death by orgasm. [[TooKinkyToTorture It doesn't work]].
* Sister George from ''The Killing of Sister George'' (1968) is pretty unstable, and very possessive of her lover. There's also her predatory boss Mercy Croft.
* In the Spanish horror film ''The Blood Spattered Bride'' (1972), a young bride, uneasy about sex with her husband, encounters LesbianVampire Literature/{{Carmilla}} and is seduced, and together they unleash murderous enmity toward men.
* There's a downright aggressive and vicious woman at the stereotypical [[WhereEverybodyKnowsYourFlame lesbian bar]] in ''Film/FoxyBrown'' (1974).
* ''Film/TheMaids'' (1975) is all about this. Well, it has just three main characters: two are psycho lesbian sisters (the titular maids), and the third is their mistress who doesn't look very straight or very sane.
* Andrea Glassen from ''Windows'' (1980).
* The evil Queen Gedren from ''Film/RedSonja'' (1985) seemed visibly attracted to the titular character, before said character disfigured her.
%%* Roxy from ''Film/BasicInstinct'' (1992).
%%* Hedy Carlson from ''Film/SingleWhiteFemale'' (1992).
* Rebecca (played by Leighton Meester) from ''Film/TheRoommate'', which is essentially a remake of ''Single White Female''.
* Eunice from ''Butterfly Kiss'' (1996) is very much this trope; the only twist is that the girl she's obsessed with reciprocates her feelings, and they turn into an OutlawCouple that wreak havoc in their wake.
* In ''Film/{{Matilda}}'' (1996), the Big Bad is a sadistically evil, authoritarian, and athletic monster of a headmistress named Trunchbull. In addition to being a [[TheBaroness Baroness]], the work may hint that she's a lesbian (as Baronesses often are): In one scene, schoolchildren in a spelling lesson chant letters with the word "Mrs." added to set the rhythm: "Mrs. D, Mrs. I, Mrs. FFI..." the Trunchbull bursts out, with an annoyed expression, "Why are all these women married?!" The "bull" in the name Trunchbull probably implies "bull dyke," a common derogatory term for lesbians.
* ''Kate's Addiction'' (1999) follows Kate's obsessive pursuit of former friend Sara up to and including killing anyone who gets in her way.
* Harris from ''Camp Blood'' (2000) went insane and became a serial killer after catching her girlfriend cheating on her with a man.
* [[spoiler:Diane]] from ''Film/MulhollandDrive'' (2001) is a lesbian, and definitely doesn't have both oars in the water. Interestingly, [[spoiler:she's the main character.]] [[MindScrew Assuming that part of the movie actually happened]].
** It's worth noting though that she comes off as more of the genuinely unbalanced sort, than the more AxeCrazy psychos that can be found on this page.
* In ''Lost and Delirious'' (2001), the main character learns that her boarding school roommates are in love. One girl's family pitches a fit, and she goes to sleep with the first guy she sees, and the other girl goes completely insane, chasing eagles in the woods and [[spoiler: she commits suicide at the end. It's even worse because the older teacher tries to save her by sharing her own forbidden love.]]
** Paulie's much less palatable in the book: She not only [[spoiler:dresses up as a guy, but deceives the entire school population into thinking she has a brother]], but she worships King Kong and she strings (the much ''less'' naive) Mouse along much further. Her own sexuality is never mentioned, although there's a brief scene with Tori, who professes a crush on "Lewis". The older teacher is still in a forbidden romance (here explicitly stated when Paulie and Mouse find letters from the teachers), but this is better justified by deliberate ValuesDissonance (the book's set in the 50's).
* The animal liberation group/diamond thieves from ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' (2001), according to a deleted scene and Kevin Smith.
* ''Make a Wish'' (2002), an alternate title for which is even ''Lesbian Psycho''. A group of lesbians go camping in the woods. Is the killer one of the male red herrings? [[spoiler: Nope]]
* [[spoiler: Marie]] from ''Film/HighTension'' (2003).
* Parodied in ''[[Film/{{DEBS}} D.E.B.S.]]'' (2003). The villainess Lucy Diamond is more than willing to sink the entire continent of Australia in frustration over not being able to form an emotionally satisfying lesbian relationship. Fortunately she is redeemed by the love of an incredibly hot secret agent in a [[SchoolgirlLesbians plaid skirt]]. Then there was Lucy's blind date Ninotchka, who was clearly not all there and completely lost it when Lucy tried to back out of their date.
%%* Barbara from ''Film/NotesOnAScandal'' (2006).
* Jennifer from ''Film/JennifersBody'' (2009) can be interpreted as being romantically attracted to her best friend [[HollywoodHomely Needy]]. When she becomes possessed by a demon and starts eating people, she specifically targets boys who Needy likes or loves. More to the point, [[AuthorAppeal she and Needy do kiss at one point]].
* Syl and Madie from ''Maskhead'' (2009) are a sick lesbian couple who make fetish porn that always ends with the participants being slaughtered by their pet killer, the eponymous Maskhead.
* Miss G from ''Film/{{Cracks}}'' (2009) definitely fits this trope. From the start of the film is clear somethings not quite right with her and over the the course of the film she shows many signs of having some sort of mental disorder. Later in the film she becomes obsessed with a female student to the point of actually raping her.
* Nina Sayers from ''Film/BlackSwan'' (2010) seems to be a paranoid schizophrenic, and is as such psycho''tic'', but definitely not psycho''pathic''. She is clearly sexually attracted to Lily, although whether they actually ever have sex, or whether that was Nina's delusion, is difficult to know, as is whether she is violent toward anyone but herself, since [[UnreliableNarrator the story is told from her perspective, making it impossible for the audience to know what is real and what are Nina's delusions]]. She is arguably, then, a notable deconstruction of this trope.

* [[NunTooHoly Madame de Chelles]], the third mother superior in Denis Diderot's "The Nun" (1796), tries to seduce the protagonist, Suzanne, and goes insane after Suzanne starts shunning her, following the advice of her confessor.
* An example from 1895 is Mary Wilkins Freeman's story "The Long Arm" (probably inspired by the sensationalistic media coverage of the Mitchell/Ward murder case in 1892). Here, Phoebe Dole, a terrifying, powerful, manipulative woman, has been maintaining another woman in subjection for years, and when this woman finally takes steps to leave her for a man, Phoebe bloodily [[MurderTheHypotenuse murders the hypotenuse]], pinning the crime with diabolical cleverness on an innocent party. She attempts to justify her crime (in a VillainousBreakdown) by saying that she's defending her domestic happiness, but this "happiness" is presented as perverted. She's described as physically monstrous as well as morally — she's the one with the abnormally "long arm" of the title — as one critic put it, "a desperate figure of lesbian evil, a hypocritical, sick, self-absorbed carnivorous flower."
* Mary Whitaker from the Literature/LordPeterWimsey mystery ''Unnatural Death'' (1927); though Sayers also presents a lesbian couple in an earlier generation, Agatha Dawson and Clare Whitaker, as not psycho and as having a successful relationship.
* In Junichiro Tanizaki's novel ''Quicksand'' (1928), Sonoko Kakiuchi, a bored, wealthy housewife, is seduced by Mitsuko Tokumitsu, who proceeds to insinuate herself into Sonoko's life and utterly wreck it.
* Subtext in Nella Larsen's ''Literature/{{Passing}}'' (1929). The egotistical, needy, manipulative Clare, a practiced seducer, uses her beauty and charm to fascinate Irene before setting out to take over Irene's life and husband. [[spoiler:Irene eventually murders Clare while still attracted to her.]]
* Mrs. Danvers from Daphne du Maurier's ''Literature/{{Rebecca}}'' (1938).
* In ''Literature/ThatHideousStrength'' (1945) by C. S. Lewis, the Big Bad is an organization that employs, among other baddies, a sadistically fascistic head of security named Miss Hardcastle, who is strongly implied to be lesbian.
* Creator/JosephineTey's ''Miss Pym Disposes'' (1948) is set in a women's college of physical culture, where Miss Pym, an amateur psychologist, is paying a visit. At the start of the book, she has a conversation with Desterro, another outsider, a sophisticated woman with many male lovers, who tells her that the college's stressed students are sexually undeveloped or misdeveloped, since they have crushes on their female teachers and intense friendships with one another. The naive Miss Pym thinks that she's never seen anything so normal and healthy as these students in her life.
-->''Pym'': Do you suggest that Miss Nash is not normal?
-->''Desterro'': Oh, Beau. She is a strong-minded creature, and so has suffered less, perhaps. But would you call her friendship for Innes quite normal? ''Nice,'' of course (''she added hastily''), quite irreproachable. But normal, no. That David and Jonathan relationship. It is a very happy one, no doubt, but it (''she waved her arm to summon an appropriate word'') -- it ''excludes'' so much.
::Sure enough, by the end of the book, not only is it clear that there is a lot of psychological mess at the college, but it turns out that Miss Nash has committed murder for Miss Innes's sake.
* Kathryn Hulme's ''The Nun's Story'' (1956) strongly implies that the Archangel Gabriel (an inmate in an insane asylum) is one of these, not least because [[spoiler: her assault on Sister Luke appears to be attempted rape.]]
* One of these features as a villainess in the JudgeDee novel ''The Chinese Maze Murders'' (1957).
* The first book in Literature/TheBeeboBrinkerChronicles, ''Odd Girl Out'' (1957), stars Laura, who transitions from a self-loathing neurotic mess into a full-blown StalkerWithACrush who manipulates the pseudo-butch Beth into continuing a borderline [[TheMasochismTango Masochism Tango]] romance.
** The third book has Beebo [[spoiler:kill a dog in order to keep Laura. It doesn't work. She wakes up to herself in the fourth book, by which time Laura has married Jack--although both of them remain gay--and had a daughter. Fortunately, Beth is there for Beebo]].
* Creator/AgathaChristie had one of these as the murderer in ''Nemesis'' (1971). The lady couldn't accept her 'protege' leaving her for a man.
* In ''Daemon in Lithuania'' (1973), some characters put on a play that contains [[TropeOverdosed half of all the old-fashioned clichés ever invented]]. Kinga is found to be pregnant, and: "Enter the Lady-in-Black. She nourished a tragic passion for Kinga, and heaped the most terrible reproaches on her head, striding up and down the stage and drawing on her [[FreudWasRight long cigarette holder]]. Finally, she tossed it on to the ground, [[GroinAttack stamped on it]], and flung herself on to her frivolous friend's couch, intending to strangle her..."
* Andrea from ''The Zone'' series (1980 - 2007) of WorldWarIII novels by James Rouch, is certainly ([[SociopathicSoldier psychopathic if not psychotic]]) and is widely assumed to be a lesbian by the other soldiers because of her contempt for men. Eventually however she forms a sexual relationship with Major Revell.
* Creator/RobertWestall's ''Literature/FuturetrackFive'' (1983) has a mild parody; Dronfield Biological Warfare Research Centre is staffed entirely by female Techs. All of the male Techs believe them to be Psycho Lesbians.
* One of the more uncomfortable subplots of Creator/TomClancy's ''[[Literature/JackRyan The Cardinal of the Kremlin]]'' (1988) features an American female rocket scientist who essentially hands her male co-worker over to [[MoscowCentre the KGB]] in order to (clumsily) attempt to [[ComfortingTheWidow seduce the guy's wife]].
* [[spoiler: Ruth Vigers]] in ''Affinity'' (1999) by Sarah Waters. [[spoiler: An Evil Mastermind con artist who gets her jollies preying on young girls while dressed as a male spirit. It's implied she's something of a control freak with her girlfriend, femme moll Selina.]] Perhaps an attempt at [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructing]] this trope, by putting it in a social context. The protagonist of the book, whose lesbian impulses are tightly repressed, is mentally disturbed in other ways.
** It's also worth remembering that [[spoiler: Selina was an accomplished confidence trickster long before she met Vigers, and only started working with Vigers in the first place because she convinced Vigers' mistress, Mrs. Brink, that she was Mrs. Brink's dead mother reincarnate]]. She only ''seems'' less culpable because [[spoiler: her actions are viewed through her own eyes or Margaret]]'s, and neither is exactly an unbiased observer.
* [[spoiler:Ktarka Zamlon Torin]] in ''Beyond Varallan'' (2000), the 2nd book in S.L. Viehl's ''{{Stardoc}}'' series, is first person in her planet's known history to have homosexual tendencies ''at all''. [[spoiler: The first lesbian in Jorenian history turns out to be a drug-fueled rapist and murderer with oddly vague reasoning for her infatuations...]]
* [[spoiler:DI Jan Shields]] in Val [=McDermid=]'s ''The Torment of Others'' (2006) is a particularly nasty example who [[spoiler:uses MoreThanMindControl on a succession of mentally-challenged young men to force them to kidnap and torture prostitutes for her viewing pleasure.]]
* Lisbeth Salander is portrayed as this by the Conspiracy attempting to discredit her in ''[[TheMillenniumTrilogy The Girl Who Played with Fire]]'' (2006).
* Esme and Liza, [[spoiler: the so-called Beard Killers]], in Alex Grecian's ''The Yard'' (2012). They were DrivenToMadness after Esme was brutally assaulted by JackTheRipper.
* Corporal Mari Magot of [[Literature/CiaphasCain the Valhallan 597th]] is an arguable example; she's unquestionably both lesbian and [[BloodKnight crazy]], but then this is [[CrapsackWorld the Imperium of Man]], and a certain amount of AxCrazy [[AbsoluteXenophobe Absolute Xenophobia]] is expected and even encouraged of guardsmen. Her girlfriend, Sgt. Grifen, is [[SergeantRock not any nicer, but much more professional]].

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Dark Willow, natch.
* An episode of ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'' had an "aggressive" (it's a subculture) lesbian accused of killing her girlfriend [[spoiler: it wasn't her, although she does have major anger problems.]]
* An episode of ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' had a [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot psycho lesbian from]] [[RecycledINSPACE space]].
* Subverted in ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' [[spoiler:The audience is led to believe that Gretchen Berg is perpetrating acts of violence against anyone who tries to get close to Claire, including her roommate Annie and members of a sorority. She also Facebook-stalks her. However, though she did have a crush on Claire, it is revealed that the acts of violence were in fact perpetrated by someone working for the main villain, Samuel.]]
* "[[ButchLesbian Daddy]]" from ''Series/PrisonBreak: The Final Break''.
* Mickie James from Wrestling/{{WWE}} started out as Trish Stratus's psychotic lesbian stalker.
** Unlike many of the other examples, Mickie James was embraced by the fans. It helped that along with being a genuinely talented woman, she was funny in the role and likable.
* In the episode "Good Night, Dear Heart" of ''Series/QuantumLeap'', Sam tries to determine the cause of death of a young woman who was apparently drowned. [[spoiler: It turns out that the young woman was murdered by her lesbian lover because she fell in love with a man.]]
* Several in the first two seasons of ''Series/{{NCIS}}''. Since the second season ended, their problem with Psycho Lesbians seems to have disappeared:
** In "Conspiracy Theory", the killers turned out to be two women who had been committed to a mental hospital, where they now have sex with each other.
** In "Lt. Jane Doe", a lesbian petty officer killed and raped her lover and then implanted semen from an old cold case into her so they would think the rapist had struck again. It probably would have worked if they hadn’t figured out the original rapist's identity. (In a bit of a ContrivedCoincidence he had just gotten out of a Canadian prison a month before and moved back to Virginia). It turns out he had died a few weeks before the murder.
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'' has one in [[spoiler: Dahlia, Cara's ex-girlfriend who betrays her, kidnaps her and tortures her into becoming one of the screwed up family again. When she kisses Cara (who is chained up, bruised and bleeding) and Cara head butts her, she does not respond to the rejection well, though fortunately all we get is her statement/threat that her previous torturer was 'being too gentle.']]
* Lydia Hart on ''Series/{{Hollyoaks}}''. After being dumped by Sarah, she sent dead flowers to herself pretending they were from her ex-girlfriend Charlotte, making Sarah get back together with her out of pity. Not long after that she tried to murder her love rival Zoe during a skydiving holiday by sabotaging her parachute, but the parachutes were handed out in a random order and Sarah was killed instead.
* Several characters of ''CuteyHoneyTheLive''. The title character, Honey, is lusted after by another female main character, Yuki. Yuki gets extremely jealous and posessive although they never develop a romance, her insanity builds up to the point where she becomes the main villain. Additionally, another main character, Miki, initially appears to be somewhat insane (introduced in a prison, then slaughters a bunch of men attacking the prisoners; proceding to become a hero until her death, only to be brought back to life, only to be merged (in the midst of a lot of lesbian subtext) with Honey to help her defeat the Psycho Lesbian villain Yuki. That's not all, however; Mayumi, a sadist teacher who likes to perform an ambiguous lesbian sex act involving raw eggs on her students, develops a passionate attraction towards Miki, whilst fighting the heroes throughout the series. In the end, in Miki's last moments, she finally shares a kiss with her.
** For added '''wrong''', a good deal of Mayumi's fights with Miki consist of one groping the other.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Tina Greer, Lana's only lesbian StalkerWithACrush of the Week.
* "Somebody's Watching," an early episode of ''Series/CriminalMinds'', had [[spoiler: Maggie Low as the unsub, a college friend and longtime stalker of Lila Archer.]] She confronts Lila and Spencer at gunpoint in the end, furious because Lila and Spencer are attracted to each other.
* The murderer in one of the season 5 ''Series/{{Psych}}'' episodes, who is also an aversion of NobodyOver50IsGay.
* The ITV ''Literature/MissMarple'' adaptation of ''The Body in the Library'' actually ''changed the identity of the killer'' from Christie's original plot in order to cater to this trope.
* Carmen on ''SouthOfNowhere'' is supposed to be portrayed as this but the worst thing she does is push Spencer into a wall by accident when fighting over the fact Spencer still has feelings for Ashley; and she immediately apologizes for it. She is popular in the fandom; instead of shipping her with Spencer, many people prefer her with Ashley's sister Kyla.
* On ''Series/{{iCarly}}'', Missy is believed to be this and some people also view Sam as one as well, and their episode together made it look like two Psycho Lesbian's fighting for the love of Carly.
** Nora. Who kidnapped the trio.
* In the "Living Witness" episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', where the Kyrians misremember Our Heroes as brutal and sadistic mercenaries, Janeway's evil alter ego is depicted as unfeminine and domineering. This is emphasized by black leather gloves and a short butchy hairdo (in contrast to the character's usual flowing locks).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* One possible interpretation of Music/{{PJ Harvey}}'s "Catherine", where a woman is singing about her envy and anger towards the titular character, and [[MurderTheHypotenuse plans to murder her current lover.]]
* The unnamed narrator in Music/SoundHorizon's "Baroque" seems to have been a fairly nice girl (if shy and socially awkward) [[LoveMakesYouEvil until she fell in love with another girl]] and proceeded to [[{{Yandere}} push said girl down a flight of stairs for rejecting her]].
* The video for Music/AmandaPalmer's "What's the Use in Won'drin?" seems to be setting up a story of a battered wife who's secretly in love with a female friend until the last thirty seconds or so, when it makes a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lzek4sHZp-c&feature=channel distinct turn for the darker]].
* In the Music/{{Vocaloid}} song ''Escape the Princess'', Gumi tries to run away from Miku, who plays one of these. [[DownerEnding It doesn't]] [[RapeAsDrama work out]].
** The song ''Marie-Luise'', sung by Lily, is about a girl in love with her childhood friend, who's married to someone else. [[IfICantHaveYou Things get worse from there...]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* The 1920 surrealist play ''Les Détraquées'' ("the deranged women") features lots of depravity in a girls' school, including two lesbians, the director and the dance teacher, who torture and murder a student.
* ''TheMiracleWorker'' alludes to Psycho Lesbians existing in the asylum [[spoiler:which Annie Sullivan grew up in]]: "The asylum? [...] There were [...] some of the kind that keep after other girls, especially the young ones."
* Inez in ''NoExit'' is a lesbian, and she's open about living for the pain of others, but her orientation seems fairly incidental to her character.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The antagonist [[spoiler: Wendy]] from ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose''. It turns out that she was the [[{{Chessmaster}} mastermind]] behind all the tormenting and torture of Jennifer, including the execution of [[spoiler: Brown, the loyal and loveable dog that Jennifer loved]]. All of this was apparently [[spoiler: "punishment" for Jennifer "falling in love with Brown".]] Unfortunately, the last one was [[BreakTheCutie what brought Jennifer over the edge]]. However, it's hard to call foul when [[DysfunctionJunction everyone in that orphanage was nuts]].
* [[spoiler:Paragon Branka]] of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' seems to qualify as this trope. On the other hand, [[spoiler:she was married to Oghren]], so it is possible that she is a DepravedBisexual.
* Amongst the AxCrazy bosses of ''VideoGame/DeadRising'', Jo Slade stands out. A sadistic police officer who brutalizes young women, she was one of the creepiest enemies in the game.
* Claudia Wolf of ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'', [[EpilepticTrees possibly]]. She seems to be obsessed with Heather, or rather with Alessa, in more ways than one.
* Played for {{squick}} in ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'', the (technically) [[{{Asexuality}} asexual]] [[ArtificialHuman Homunculus]] [[spoiler: Daniella]] could qualify. Insanely jealous of Fiona's [[spoiler: [[LifeEnergy Azoth]] and her ability to bear children]], she gropes her in her sleep before ''breaking a window with her own forehead'' to get a piece of glass sharp enough to dismember the girl.
* The InteractiveFiction game ''The Blind House'' has heavy subtextual hints at an attraction between its two main characters, Helena and Marissa, and both of them are clearly pretty unstable in different ways -- but especially Helena, who has just killed a woman who is implied to have been her lover. What really takes it into this trope's territory, though, is TheReveal that [[spoiler:Helena has been stalking Marissa and trying to trap her in her own house]], and the fact that in [[MultipleEndings one possible ending]], [[spoiler:Helena kills Marissa too. While lying on top of her on her bed. And then cuddles with the corpse]].
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/ADanceWithRogues'', in which the lesbian characters tend to be nicer.
* Selena in ''Damnation'' definitely fits this trope.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Visual Novels]]
* Sousou from ''VisualNovel/KoihimeMusou'' is a borderline case. Sure, she gets presented [[JerkassFacade relatively sympathetically]] as the series progresses, but not before [[BlackComedyRape forcing one of her subordinates into sex with her]] and trying to do the same with Kannu.
** Never mind that her subordinate is more than happy to comply with the "forcing...", though Kan'u only accepts a Sousou's proposal under duress.
* [[GiantSpider Hirasaka]] Hatsune from ''VisualNovel/AtlachNacha'' absorbs energy by having sexual intercourse with people or eating them. She prefers females for sex and males for eating. If you piss her off, she ''will'' tear you apart before devouring you... all with a smile, too.
* ''[[VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry Umineko no Naku Koro ni]]'' offers a rare ''mutual'' example with Lambdadelta and Bernkastel. At first it seems like it's Lamda's one-sided MadLove that makes her want to keep Bern all for herself. In Episode 5 though, it turns out they have a genuine love for each other. Very violent and twisted, but genuine nontheless.

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* Yukari and Yuyuko from ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' are like this in the 18+ version of the ''Music/{{IOSYS}}'' fan video ''Border of Extacy''. For general safe-for-work principles and sanity, a link shall not be provided. (A search on Website/YouTube will not reveal this video but will reveal the other version of the video)

[[folder:Webcomic]]
* Gail Swanson, the VillainProtagonist of ''[[http://whenshewasbad.smackjeeves.com/ When She was Bad]]''.
* In Chloe's web comic ''Webcomic/GoGetARoomie'', "Roomie" of the title appears to manifest this trope: technically homeless, but playing on her charm and good looks to obtain rent-free stays with a string of lovers, taking them for granted for everything until she gets bored and moves on, generally wearing stolen clothes and with whatever money she can scoop up on the way out. It is only way into the series that it is revealed she does have feelings for others and a conscience, but the Roomie of the early strips is a heartbreaking conscienceless psychopath.
* In ''[[http://adayoflucy.thecomicseries.com A Day of Lucy]]'', It is likely from this [[http://adayoflucy.thecomicseries.com/comics/10/ strip]] that Natalie is one.
* In ''Webcomic/YuMeDream'' Sadako is a pretty perfect example. That being said, [[CastFullOfGay other characters]] provide more positive depictions of homosexuality and bisexuality.
* Lemon and Lime from ''[[http://evilplan.thewebcomic.com Evil Plan]]''. The inseparable supervillainesses refer to each other as their "wives," and while they seem to be happy and perky, the right conditions are all that needed to let the unsettling mania show...
* One of [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Vanessa's]] exes in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', whom she left for casting aspersions on her bisexuality once too often, apparently still calls her, begging to get back together while calling her "whore."
* Yuki, from ''Webcomic/MenageA3'', plays with the trope. She not only has a [[HollywoodPsych psychological disorder]] which means that she sees all male sex organs as "Naughty Tentacles", she tends to go into berserk fugue states in which she [[GroinAttack attacks]] said "Tentacles" ''with the intent of utterly destroying them''. She played StalkerWithACrush to her bisexual ex-girlfriend Zii, and for a while turned protagonist Gary's life into a living hell, forcing him to make out with his gay roommate (thanks to a typical deranged misunderstanding on her part) and blackmailing him into illustrating her manga script. However, the situation was more complicated than this sounds. Aside from the facts that Yuki is clearly far more crazy than evil, and that Gary rather masochistically fell for her, Zii declared from the first that she was actually bisexual under the insanity, the Cast Page confirmed this, and in due course Yuki discovered feelings for Gary, and made rater intermittent attempts to find a cure for her psychosis. The path of that possibly-true love turned out to be far from smooth, but Yuki has evolved away from the pure form of the trope.
* Chi, Aku's daughter in ''Webcomic/GrimTalesFromDownBelow'', [[StalkerWithACrush specifically towards Mimi]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* WebVideo/DiamandaHagan. PlayedForLaughs.
* Missy from ''WebOriginal/TheWarComms''. At first she was just a lesbian who happened to be a psycho, then a psycho who happened to be a lesbian. Then she started making some suggestive comments about Esmeralda and Trisha, [[FoeYay whom she claims to despise]] and, well.
* Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren from the Netflix original series ''Orange is the New Black'' is gay, and also definitely has mental problems, as her nickname might suggest. She is also a deconstruction, in that she is not a bad person, per se, nor is she even a full-blown psychotic, although the prison does periodically have to confine her in the psychiatric ward.
* Fire Burial from Brennus. She'll burn off the genitals of any male who propositions her.
* Lyn "Laeil" Burbank of SurvivalOfTheFittest's third version. After confessing her love to a female friend, she gets bullied by her classmates for being a "dyke". Once she gets on the island, she kills her cousin (who was one of her major bullies) by [[GroinAttack stabbing him in the groin repeatedly]]. Afterwards, she decides that she was going to die anyways, and that she was going to [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge get revenge on everyone who ever bullied her]]. [[spoiler: The last thing she sees before she dies is a hallucination of forementioned female friend forgiving her.]] Reiko Ishida of version 4 is an inversion: while she is a prominent player, one of her more sympathetic qualities is her relationship with Sarah Xu, and after CharacterDevelopment she starts to be concerned about what Sarah thinks of her actions.
