[[caption-width-right:350:What business [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe doth]] an [[ComicBook/TheEnchantress Asgardian enchantress]] have providing assistance to a simple mortal terrorist? The opportunity to have [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]].]]

->''"Sure, women like me swoon for a hero, but that's only because deep down, we think we can change them."''
-->-- '''Sabine''', ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''

The Evil Empress wants a consort for her domain. Unfortunately, none of her male subjects is quite up to her standards. So what does she do? [[DistressedDude Kidnap the hero, of course.]] Once he sees [[EvilIsSexy how hot she is]], and how [[WeCanRuleTogether they can rule together]], he'll fall into her arms.

Unfortunately for the villainess, this never seems to work out. Occasionally, the hero will be forced to play along temporarily, but in the end, he will always escape the villainess' clutches and leave her all alone and lonely...until the next time she manages to finagle him into her arms.

The villainess in question is often TheVamp and/or DaddysLittleVillain. If the villainess is more interested in having a male SexSlave rather than a consort, the next step is always a GenderFlip of IHaveYouNowMyPretty. However, this trope can sometimes result in a SexFaceTurn...

A SubTrope of VillainousCrush. A SisterTrope to DatingCatwoman (if the hero actually returns her affections), AllAmazonsWantHercules, SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan, and ILoveYouBecauseICantControlYou. The alignment-flipped SisterTrope of AllGirlsWantBadGuys.

Compare HeroesWantRedheads. Contrast with MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter, since the villain is unwilling to renounce her evil ways to woo the hero.


[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Esdeath from ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' is madly in love with TheHero Tatsumi.
* From ''Franchise/{{Anpanman}}'', Dokinchan, Baikinman's second-in-command, has a (very large and very obvious) crush on Shokupanman, one of the members of the breadheaded superhero team. He's a bit too conceited to notice her crush, though he treats her with a level of kindness that he doesn't show any of the other villains...besides Dokinchan's little sister, Kokinchan, who ALSO has a crush on Shokupanman (though hers is a bit more of a childish one, and she's treated as less of a villain by most of the cast).
* While Slan of the Godhand in ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is probably incapable of feeling real love (being a GodOfEvil and all), she does want to make Guts her personal sex-toy.
* In ''Manga/DGrayMan'', Road, the Noah of Dreams, has a 'thing' for Allen Walker...though pretty much [[ChickMagnet everyone does.]] However, this infatuation seems to be a source of CharacterDevelopment for her, as she becomes nicer to Allen...though ''only'' to him.
* Both Middler and Mariah express interest in the heroes (Jotaro and Joseph, respectively) in part 3 of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. Both [=JoJos=] try to use this to their advantage ([[ComicallySerious with much embarrassment in Jotaro's case]]), but to no avail -- As Mariah points out, there's no point in turning traitor for the handsome hero when the villain you work for is [[EvilIsSexy Dio]] [[VampiresAreSexGods Brando]].
* Gender-inverted in ''Anime/GoLion'' with Sincline's desire for Fala (who resembles his mother). Up to 10 in ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' with Lotor desiring Allura.
* [[ImprobablyFemaleCast In some circumstances]] villainesses want heroines as well. While [[LesYay its exact nature is to be discussed]], Kyoko, the closest person ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' had for a villain at the time, definitely had a thing for female KnightInShiningArmor wannabe Sayaka, and the latter's heroism and HonorBeforeReason tendencies seemed to play a big part in it.
** This goes double for [[spoiler: Homura’s [[SuperpoweredEvilSide witch/demon self]]]] from [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaTheMovieRebellion Rebellion]], who wants to [[spoiler: keep [[TheHero Madoka]] trapped inside a LotusEaterMachine in a [[{{Yandere}} misguided]] attempt to “protect” her.]]
* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'':
** Poor, poor Mamoru Chiba. It served as a RunningGag throughout the series, but started with Queen Beryl.
** Usagi/Moon was twice in the same situation, once with Ail from the first anime and later with Prince Dermando.
** Also gender-inverted in ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'' (of which ''Manga/SailorMoon'' is a spin-off): in the end it's revealed that the BigBad Danburite a.k.a. [[spoiler: Ace]] is in love with Sailor V since their previous lives. Even the eventual failure of this is unusual: [[spoiler:she ''does'' fall for him, but everything he did was to get Minako to fully awaken as Sailor Venus and make her realize she'd always choose duty over everything by ''having her kill him'']].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Franchise/{{Superman}} has several examples:
** Dana Dearden, who goes by the aliases "Obsession", "Superwoman", and "Mrs. Superman".
** In most depictions, Lashina of the [[ComicBook/NewGods Female Furies]] lusts after Superman.
** The Queen of Fables is so delusional that she believes Superman is PrinceCharming, and wants to make him her husband.
** Maxima initially butted heads with Supes when he declined her offer of marriage. Eventually, she learned to take "No" for an answer and became an ally.
*** Maxima is a slight aversion. It's not so much that she loves or wants a relationship with Superman. She wants his genetic material to improve her royal bloodline. She's just . . . rather traditional in her choice of collection method.
* ''ComicBook/TheMightyThor'':
** ComicBook/TheEnchantress to Thor, DependingOnTheWriter.
** There's also Hela, Norse goddess of death, who is either this or a StalkerWithATestTube, DependingOnTheWriter. She's also Thor's adoptive brother's daughter [[spoiler:[[CreatingLifeIsUnforeseen in some sense]]]], by the way, but mythological gods have never been exactly ''picky'' about that sort of thing.
** The Enchantress's younger sister Lorelei also wanted a piece of thunder god, and ''once used magic to seduce and rape him''. [[ComicBook/LokiAgentOfAsgard These days]], she's lost interest, and gone for a different hero, Sigurd The Ever-Glorious, Asgard's oldest hero, and a bit of a {{Jerkass}}. If Amora is to believed this attraction is mutual making Sigurd a LadykillerInLove, yes, that kind of jerkass.
* [[Comicbook/DoctorStrange Umar]] to the Comicbook/IncredibleHulk in one notable Giffen / [=DeMatteis=] Defenders miniseries. In this case Hulk... enjoyed himself so much that not only did he revert to puny Banner, but ''Umar couldn't torture Banner into turning back''. In a later issue, she appears to scoop up an out-of-control Hulk, super-charged by a reality-warping device, for an inter-dimensional booty-call. When the Red She-Hulk objected, Umar brought her along as well. Apparently, she thought that level of power, and the extra partner, would give them enough stamina to make for an interesting evening (by comparison, she wiped out the Hulk in their first encounter in under six minutes). [[BlueandOrangeMorality She saved the Earth, unintentionally, in the pursuit of really vigorous sex.]]
* Depending on the continuity, all the {{Femme Fatale}}s of Gotham want Franchise/{{Batman}}... or they want him dead if he won't be their boy toy.
** Especially ComicBook/{{Catwoman}}, who is the TropeNamer for DatingCatwoman. Once she lust also for Superman, but that's PlayedForLaughs.
** Talia Al Ghul takes the cake, on one instance trying to utterly destroy Batman, kill his "family" and ruin everything he'd ever worked for... because he wasn't paying attention to her.
** The only exception is Harley Quinn, for [[MadLove obvious reasons]], though even she took a shot at Bruce in a Valentine special.
* Evil queens of mysterious kingdoms in hidden valleys really have a thing for ComicStrip/ThePhantom.
* Cupid really, ''[[StalkerWithACrush really]]'' likes ComicBook/GreenArrow.
* [[ComicBook/NextWave Aaron Stack, aka Machine Man,]] learned that his old enemy [[ComicBook/IronMan Sunset Baine, aka Madame Menace,]] has something of a crush on him. He was rather taken aback by the discovery.
* ''ComicBook/XMen'':
** Comicbook/EmmaFrost, AKA: The White Queen, to Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} - though she hadn't been quite as evil for a while when it happened.
** ComicBook/{{Mystique}}. She has had a thing for Forge, Iceman, and Wolverine respectively.
* Plastique to ComicBook/CaptainAtom. They even briefly married.
* The Queen in ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' is a dark variant. When she makes the decision to have Spider-Man serve as her "mate" she's made the decision [[spoiler: to turn him into a giant spider monster that would serve as a living egg sac for her offspring. It was a small miracle he survived and returned to normal.]]

[[folder:Comic Strips]]
* Princess Aura for ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'' before her HighHeelFaceTurn for Barin.
* The Dragon Lady for Pat Ryan in ''ComicStrip/TerryAndThePirates''.

[[folder:Fan Works]]
* In ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8532906/1/iFightCrimeWithVictorious iFight Crime With Victorious]]'' Valerie, Freddie's old girlfriend from Season 1 of ''Series/{{iCarly}}'', throws her lot in with Neville so that she can restart (via mind control) her relationship with Freddie.
* You wouldn't believe how many writers portray [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Shego wanting Ron]].
** Which is nothing compared to the writers who portray Shego as [[HoYay wanting Kim]].
* In ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'', Splash Woman muses that while she could destroy Mega Man, part of her would love to have him to herself and under her control.

[[folder:Fairy Tales]]
* The evil stepsisters in ''Literature/{{Cinderella}}'' are willing to mutilate themselves to trick the prince into marriage.
* In ''Literature/{{Pintosmalto}}'', a queen who attends the wedding feast manages to trick him into letting her abduct him.
* In ''[[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/pt1/pt116.htm The Daughter of the Skies]]'', the daughter captures the hero when the heroine breaks her husband's prohibition three times.
* In ''Literature/EastOfTheSunAndWestOfTheMoon'', failing the CurseEscapeClause puts the hero in the power of the witch who {{curse}}d him.

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* In the "Den" segment of ''WesternAnimation/HeavyMetal'', the evil queen ''really'' wants to get it on with the eponymous hero. And then they actually ''do'' get it on.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Medusa, the main villain in the last ''Film/ThreeNinjas'' movie, offers to spare Dave Dragon if he agrees to be her "boy toy". His rejecting the offer pretty much makes her act less like this the rest of the film.
* ''Film/ThreeHundredRiseOfAnEmpire'': After Artemisia's Persian generals fail to live up to her demands, she takes an interest in her Athenian opposite Themistocles. She summons Themistocles to her command ship (temporarily shored in neutral waters) to seduce him, prompting a very violent sex scene. He refuses with a simple "No" afterwards.
* ''Film/{{Barbarella}}'': The evil Black Queen of Sogo would like to "play" with Barbarella, our heroic, innocent astro-navigatrix, but Barbarella is very much not interested. Then the Black Queen tries to turn to the similarly pure angel Pygar, who turns her down as well.
* In ''Film/KullTheConqueror'', Akivasha the Red Witch spends the vast majority of the film attempting to convince Kull to accept [[WeCanRuleTogether her offer of immortality and become her lover and co-ruler over all the world]], beginning even before he is a real threat to her and without standing to gain anything from his acceptance of the offer. She constantly pulls her punches (and even betrays her own minions) in order to avoid killing Kull in the hopes that he will eventually come around and be her consort for all eternity. After such dogged persistence, you almost [[AlasPoorVillain feel bad for her]] when she finally gets the kiss she wanted... [[spoiler: but it's laced with the [[ChekhovsGun Breath of Valka]], which kills her.]] Heavy emphasis on ''[[ObviouslyEvil almost]]'' though.
* In ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', the Borg Queen wanted Picard to willingly submit to the Borg and be her..."consort"? Not technically romance, but the Borg Queen seems to sexualize her role. The seduction part is played straighter in regards to Data, our favourite fully functional android.
* This is the plot of ''She.''
* ''Film/TheMummy2017'': Nick is resurrected by Ahmanet as part of her plans, but she also appears to have a more personal interest in him if her leaning in close to Nick longingly on more than one occasion is any indication.
--> '''Ahmanet:''' Come to me...
* ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'': Poison Ivy acts this way to Robin for most of the film, though it is actually subverted as she is only seducing him to make him a victim of her kiss instead of actually being in love with him (instead she's a ClingyJealousGirl for Mr. Freeze, another villain). After she finally kisses him she drops the act and taunts him, but after realizing Robin tricked her she angrily shoves "her love" off the romantic rose throne they were sharing and into the pond to drown him.
* ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned'': The [[MonsterProgenitor mother of all vampires]], an ancient Egyptian pharaoh known as Akasha, wants the much younger vampire Lestat to be her lover after she discarded her previous one to absorb his power. He reciprocates at first, but eventually turns on her since her plan to TakeOverTheWorld is too extreme for him.

* ''Literature/TheSevenRealmsSeries'' plays it straight with Han Alistar and Fiona Bayar. The Bayar family is a corrupt family of Wizards that has it out for Han, since Han accidentally wound up stealing a [[MacGuffin powerful magical artifact]] from them. Han is also a ChickMagnet of epic proportions whose good looks almost ''never'' go unnoticed by a female member of the cast. So, naturally, Fiona Bayar gets the hots for him and even attempts to seduce him by saying [[WeCanRuleTogether they can rule together.]]
* Literature/{{Tarzan}} was hotly pursued by his JunglePrincess EvilCounterpart (actually, more BlueAndOrangeMorality, due to her upbringing and ultimately tragic environment) La, Priestess of Opar, who would not take no for an answer.
** Nemone, Queen of the [[LostWorld ancient lost city of Cathne]] is not only smitten with the Lord of the Jungle, it's clear that her beauty is so great that Tarzan is actually tempted for one of the very few times in his life. Of course, since she's also [[CuteAndPsycho as mad as she is beautiful]], it doesn't last.
* In ''Literature/TheWardstoneChronicles'', witches seem to really like spooks, even though a major part of a spook's job is hunting witches. Both Tom and his master, Mr. Gregory, have at least one witch who fell in love with them.
* OlderThanDirt: This trope goes back to ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh''. The capricious goddess Inanna (Ishtar) wants to hook up with the hero, Gilgamesh, because he's [[EvenTheGuysWantHim exceptionally comely]]. But he wants no part of it because, as he points out with brutal candor, every single guy she's ever spent time with lived to regret it (and usually didn't live to regret it for very long). Result? Goddess rage.
** His reason for rejecting her is entirely different in the oldest Sumerian version, where his Mother tells him that a relationship with her will make him [[IncrediblyLamePun Soft]].
* ''Literature/HowlsMovingCastle'': The Witch of the Waste's love interest is the wizard Howl, who tries to escape from her in fear.
* Lanfear's interest in Rand al'Thor in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' is almost a textbook example of this trope, even down to the WeCanRuleTogether. She never technically kidnaps him[[note]]Though in a possible future Moraine averted Lanfear actually did, ultimately breaking him[[/note]] but she certainly does everything she can to make him dependent on her (and, to her credit, she really does save his life more than once).
* GenderInverted in ''Literature/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', where the titular BigBad is in love with heroine Christine.
* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden]] has had this happen to him a few times.
** Most notably [[OurFairiesAreDifferent Queen Mab]], who wanted Harry to become her champion the Winter Knight, and went about it with a part-seduction/part-job-offer/part-make-your-life-hell vibe. [[spoiler: And when Harry finally accepts, the deal gets sealed with elemental-level coitus.]] For her part Mab is less a villain and more subject to BlueAndOrangeMorality, but she's not ''nice''.
** Lasciel, a fallen angel who spends time living in Harry's head and trying to tempt him into a full-blown DemonicPossession. At one point this involves a dream with Harry in a hot tub. [[spoiler: When the actual Lasciel shows up in Literature/SkinGame, she acts like a PsychoExGirlfriend.]]
* The BigBad of ''LightNovel/TheUnexploredSummonBloodSign'', [[spoiler: [[GodIsEvil The]] [[LightIsNotGood White]] [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Queen]]]], is absolutely head-over-heels for Kyousuke. This is in fact her only motivation, with her becoming involved in each story arc purely for the chance to see him again.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* GenderInverted in ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'' episode "[[Recap/TheAdventuresOfSupermanS3E10TheBullyOfDryGulch The Bully of Dry Gulch]]". The VillainOfTheWeek finds ComicBook/LoisLane attractive.
* The third season of ''Series/TheFlash2014'' has [[spoiler:Killer Frost]], who had some ShipTease with Barry Allen as [[spoiler:Caitlin Snow]] and who forces a kiss on him during her attempt to kill him. When he says he wants to help her, she bitterly asks why he would when he's already got a happy life with his girlfriend, Iris. She eagerly grabs the opportunity to partner up with [[spoiler:[[BigBad Savitar]], an evil future version of Barry when he offers her a chance to rule the world forever with him, and makes at least one pass at him.]]
* Adrianne Margeaux of ''Series/KnightRider'', a recurring villainess who ''really'' wanted a piece of Michael after their first encounter. She even plants a ForcefulKiss once she's got him imprisoned.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': Maxima, as well as Tess Mercer.
* Princess Ardala of Draconia for ''[[Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury Buck Rogers]]'', sometimes.
* Nadira to Lucas, the Blue Ranger, in ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce''. [[spoiler: By the next season she's reformed and he reciprocates. ]]
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'':
** Mirror Kira wants [[AntiHero Mirror Sisko]], regular Sisko, regular Kira, and [[DepravedBisexual pretty much everyone else]] she can intimidate with her sexuality.
** A GenderInverted example is Gul Dukat for Kira. Given he used to run a slave labor camp on her planet, she naturally has no desire to reciprocate.
* ''Series/{{Elementary}}'': [[spoiler:Moriarty. Also a case of DatingCatwoman]].
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** [[spoiler: Ruby]] seems to genuinely care for Sam, and also seems to assume he's more or less on board with joining team evil, though Sam's actions under her influence are more of the WellIntentionedExtremist variety.
** Meg falls in love with Castiel during Seasons 7 & 8.
** [[spoiler:The Darkness]] seems to be attracted to Dean.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': GenderInverted with Spike and Buffy in Season 5.
* Subverted in ''Series/BlakesSeven'' where Servalan has little interest in the noble Blake, but is quite interested in AntiHero Avon because he shares her amoral ruthlessness.

* In the original version of ''Theatre/SpiderManTurnOffTheDark'', the villainous Arachne had a thing for Peter and wished to seduce him away from Mary Jane. When Julie Taymor was fired and the musical was rewritten in order to save it, the subplot was cut as Arachne was DemotedToExtra.
* ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'': Umbridge dates Dumbledore briefly in "Sequel".

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* In ''Theatre/TheEighthVoyageOfSindbad'' show at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]], Miseria displays a bit of attraction towards the title character, and is quite upset when he is instead more interested in Princess Amoura.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Tron Bonne of ''VideoGame/MegamanLegends'' begins developing a crush on Mega Man, and tries time and time again to coax him to her side. However, she has [[DatingCatwoman just as much fun acting as his foil]].
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': Aria T'Loak backstory reveals that this was the case when she dated Nyreen, who "[[TheParagon oozes virtue]]" according to Aria. The relationship failed when they both realised that they couldn't make DatingCatwoman work without changing the other. Likewise implied with a subtle undercurrent of BelligerentSexualTension in conversations between Aria and Paragon Shepard.
* In ''VideoGame/KingdomsOfAmalurReckoning'', in the House of Ballads quest line, the Maid of Windemere kidnaps King Wencen of the Summer Court to be her lover, leading to him having to be saved by his queen in the tellings of the ballad before the arrival of the Fateless One.
* In ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' spin-off ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'', [[BigBad Cia]] causes havoc because she's in love with Link and wants Zelda out of the picture to have him all to herself.
* In a same-sex example from ''VideoGame/{{Lunarosse}}'', [[spoiler:Gerard, Noel's SuperpoweredEvilSide, developed feelings for main character Channing and ends up goading Noel into the same,]]
* A rather creepy gender-flip takes place in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', with Valter's StalkerWithACrush behavior towards Princess Eirika.

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Lucrezia Mongfish, the MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter [[spoiler: aka [[BigBad The Other]]]] in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''. It's partially also DatingCatwoman, since Bill genuinely loves her and Lucrezia appears to love him back [[spoiler: at first, anyway]] but it's apparently clear to everyone except Bill that she's [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20041208#.VvViMeKLTIU still a villainess at heart]].
--> '''Lucrezia:''' Now, Bill ''knows'' I'm bad. But he thinks I can ''change''.\\
'''Klaus:''' He's ''wrong''. They think that about ''everybody''. I know you ''too well''.
** Played straight in the side story of Ferretina the Weasel Queen, with Othar Tryggvassen as the hero she tries to seduce - right up until he mistakes her seduction for "luring him to his doom" and tries to kill her instead. It's an easy mistake to make.
--> '''Ferretina:''' You're a ''real'' man! A ''hero!'' I had thought your kind a fable! A story for ''children!''
** Also played straight in the backstory of a side story, with Old Man Death recounting tales from his youth to his granddaughter - since he now runs a sandwich shop, the villainess in question apparently repented. Although since he fought alongside [[TheHorde the Jaegars]] under one of the [[EvilGenius old Heterodynes]] this might actually be a case of AllGirlsWantBadBoys, it's [[UnreliableNarrator ambiguous]].
--> '''Old Man Death:''' Then one day, while sacking a castle, I was ravished by a wild princess...\\
'''Zeuxippe:''' You the who '''''what''''' now?\\
'''Old Man Death:''' Heh. Even today, your grandmother is a ''remarkable woman''.
** [[HeroOfAnotherStory Aldin Hoffman]] is apparently very popular with villainesses who are fond of capturing him and putting him in [[GoGoEnslavement loincloth outfits]].
* Used in a minor way in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick''. Fairly early, Elan gets kidnapped by bandits who, as it turned out, were acting on the orders of the beautiful Bandit Queen. Looks like 18 Charisma wasn't just for show after all... (Well, it ''is'', obviously, but... you know what we mean.) Somewhat unusual in that Elan [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0156.html actually goes along with it]] until his UST-target shows up and complains, at which point he defends himself by claiming that seducing the beautiful villainess is part of his solemn duty as a Bard.
** Sabine mentions this trope in a comedic inversion of AllGirlsWantBadBoys from [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0794.html this strip]].
** There's also the situation between [[TheFettered Durkon]] and [[TheHedonist Hilgya]]. Deconstructed in that while she was attracted to him, and he eventually returned the favor, [[spoiler:she was still married, and the LawfulGood Durkon could not be involved in a relationship with someone who was married to someone else]].

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The [[http://nift.firedrake.org/EEmpress.htm Guidelines for Evil Empresses]] have a lot to say about this.
-->I will not bed the Hunky Hero before my plan is executed, unless having him believe I am carrying his child gives me a decisive advantage.
-->I will not be put off by the Hero's rebuffs of my sensual advances. If he doesn't succumb to me, I will not fly into a jealous rage. Instead, I'll shrug my shoulders, send him on his way, and have him picked off as he exits the fortress.
-->I, and my elite guards, will never assume that we have managed to confiscate all weapons or escape aids from the captured Hero. "Interrogations" in my private chambers will only be conducted if the Hero is completely nude. This will, in fact, satisfy a number of objectives at once.
-->If the Hero says he is willing to betray his cause and accept my offer of ruling the world at my side, he will only be believed once that betrayal results in his cause's total destruction, at which point [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves his demonstration of total lack of principle should lead to his immediate execution]].
-->However insatiable my appetites are, it is virtually guaranteed that at least one of my millions of subjects is both far more gifted at satisfying them and far more loyal to me than the Hero who seeks my destruction, no matter his reputation with the ladies.
-->If the Hero has an evil twin, the twin will probably make a far more suitable Love-Happy Stooge.
* Inverted in "WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall", where heroic champion of the universe Linkara has a crush on Harley Quinn, a comic book villainess.
* Played straight by ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick'', who is a StalkerWithACrush for ''WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows''. WordOfGod is that she and ''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic'' are also essentially an OfficialCouple.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** Like the comic book example above, Maxima is this to Superman. However, she soon forgot all about Superman when she meets another man to her liking...
--->'''Lobo:''' I'm here to get that fraggin', scum-suckin, rat-scratchin' De'Cine. And nobody better stop me!\\
'''Maxima:''' Yeahoooo!
** Though he was brainwashed at the time, Lashina not only has a thing for Superman, it's pretty heavily implied they had sex.
* Queen La plays the same role in Disney's animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfTarzan'' as she did in the original source material.
* ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' had this with Gravatina. She once went for Buzz's EvilTwin from an AlternateUniverse.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' features Miraj Scintel, the Queen of Separatist-aligned Zygerria, taking a liking to Anakin Skywalker posing as a smuggler to free many recently abducted slaves from her clutches, and, subsequently, after his ruse is discovered, takes Obi-Wan, Ahsoka and Rex as captive slaves, but promises to release them if he would become her lover and stay with her, believing she can control him. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Count Dooku [[ShootTheDangerousMinion doesn't approve...]]]]
* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'':
** Played as high-school drama when Kitten, Killer Moth's BrattyTeenageDaughter, wants Robin to take her to the prom. Subverted, however: she just wants to use Robin to make her ''real'' boyfriend jealous.
** Blackfire flirts pretty heavily with Robin in her first appearance, but this seems less to be actual interest and more just her screwing with her sister Starfire's (Robin's canon LoveInterest) head. In her second appearance, she pretty much ignores Robin entirely.
** This trope is completely inverted in regards to Jinx and Kid Flash. Kid Flash is definitely the active pursuer in the relationship, with him trying to coax Jinx into turning over a new leaf.
* Queen Tyr'ahnee of the Martians and ''WesternAnimation/DuckDodgers''.
* The eponymous character of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' is lusted after by Heloise, an EnfantTerrible MadScientist. Of course, sometimes she drifts into AntiHero territory, she's still happily working for {{Satan}}. Currently, Jimmy [[ObliviousToLove has no clue]].
* ''WesternAnimation/AladdinTheSeries'':
** There's a recurring villain a witch named [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Sadira Sadira]], whose main goal was to steal Aladdin from Jasmine, though she [[HeelFaceTurn gave up on it in her third appearance and befriended Jasmine.]]
** There was also Saleen, an evil mermaid who attempted the same thing. Though in one episode she turned Aladdin into a shark, which seems sort of counterproductive to this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/ElTigre'': Both Black Cuervo and her mother Voltura have this for El Tigre and ''his'' father, [[TheCape White Pantera]]. A good way to get Voltura riled is to point out that was Pantera who broke up with her; ''"As if I could forget!"''
* ''WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance'': Recurring DarkActionGirl Rava's primary goal in life is to [[AmbitionIsEvil rule the kingdom of Bandisar]]. Her secondary goal? To have the titular hero as her husband by any means necessary, even if it involves kidnapping, torture, and [[MurderTheHypotenuse attempting to dispose of]] his other love interest, Goleeta. Failing all that, she's willing to invoke the IfICantHaveYou clause...
* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "Alive", Giganta develops a sympathy for ''[[ComicBook/TheFlash Wally West]]''. At the end of the series finale, she uses a bit of her [[MercyLead head start]] time to give him a kiss before running away with the other villains.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePrincessAndThePea'', Hildegard (the RoyalBrat princess) wants to marry Rollo, although the only reason she wants to marry him is because he's the prince of a [[GoldDigger very rich]] kingdom.
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/SWATKats'', a villainess air-pirate named Turmoil develops a crush on the hero T-Bone. [[spoiler:She captures and asks T-Bone to join her crew, which he accepts. In truth, however, he simply takes advantage of her hospitality by planting bombs throughout the ship and bringing it down. At the end of the episode, Turmoil, while in prison, promises not to give up her pursuit of T-Bone.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' Ty Lee hits on Sokka almost every time they share the screen together. Of course, she's not really that much of a villain, but she's Azula's sidekick and usually hits on him while they're fighting.
* In ''WesternAnimation/ReBoot'' Hexadecimal sometimes had a crush on Bob, depending on which mask she had on at the time. [[spoiler:After she's turned into a sprite she comes to realize she loves him entirely and ends up [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing herself to save the entire net]] from [[OmnicidalManiac Daemon's]] infection, for no reason other than for his sake.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Cheshire flirts with Red Arrow, [[spoiler:the original Roy Harper/Speedy's clone]]. They eventually get married and have a daughter.
* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012''. Karai flirts with Leo on screen, but they become enemies after Leo and his brothers try to kill the Shredder, her father.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': WordOfGod revealed that Ember [=McLain=] is secretly in love the title character, but denies it in a {{Tsundere}} manner.
