Playing With / Villainesses Want Heroes

Basic Trope: A villainess who has an unrequited crush for a hero.
  • Straight: The main story's villaness, Carol, (aka. The Dark Queen) is in love with Amazing Bob.
  • Exaggerated: Carol, The Dark Queen is the Amazing Bob's Stalker with a Crush and even has 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 the Amazing Bob, but would much rather be with Emperor Evulz.
  • Justified:
  • Inverted:
  • Gender Inverted: Emperor Evulz has an unrequited crush on heroic Action Girl, Lizzy.
  • Subverted: The Dark Queen is really a Femme Fatale trying to seduce the Amazing Bob for her own personal gain.
  • Double Subverted: ...or so she says.
  • Parodied: Carol became a villain specifically to get a date.
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • 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 fell in love in order to exploit said love.
  • Exploited:
  • Defied:
    • Carol refuses to fall in love with him 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: ???
