Playing With / Villainesses Want Heroes

Basic Trope: A villainess who has an unrequited crush for a hero.
  • Straight: Carol, The Dark Queen, is in love with Amazing Bob.
  • Exaggerated: Carol is Amazing Bob's Stalker with a Crush and even has a Stalker Shrine dedicated to Bob.
  • Downplayed:
    • Carol has a mild crush on Bob and sometimes flirts with him, but is perfectly willingly to "throw him under the bus" for her own personal gain.
    • Alternatively, Carol has a bit of a crush on Amazing Bob, but would much rather be with Emperor Evulz.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
  • Gender Inverted: Emperor Evulz has an unrequited crush on heroic Action Girl Alice.
  • Subverted: The Dark Queen is really a Femme Fatale trying to seduce Amazing Bob for her own personal gain.
  • Double Subverted: ...or so she says.
  • Parodied:
  • Zig Zagged: Carol flip-flops between wanting Bob and wanting to kill him.
  • Averted:
    • The Dark Queen doesn't have a crush on Amazing Bob.
    • Dating Catwoman for when they both have feelings for one another.
  • Enforced: The company execs see how popular Carol is with audiences, and pressure the writers to get her to defect to the good guys by way of this trope rather then unceremoniously sending her to jail like they initially planned.
  • Lampshaded: "Wow, for my enemy, you really seem to like me! Too bad, I'll never return the favor."
  • Invoked:
    • Carol becomes a villainess for the sole purpose of getting closer to Bob.
    • Alternatively, Amazing Bob tries to get the Dark Queen to fall in love in order to exploit said love.
  • Exploited:
  • Defied:
    • Carol refuses to fall in love with Bob and may even try various methods to fall out of love.
    • Carol, The Dark Queen, tries to get rid of Bob so she won't get distracted.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: ???
