Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A mother is one of the most central figures that a character can have growing up, and her influence can have an impact on that character even as an adult. If the character is lucky, that mother will be a loving one, and if he or she is really lucky, she'll be an Action Mom who can kick ass and take names if the character is ever threatened.
But if the character is really unlucky and isn't suffering from Parental Abandonment, the character's mother will be an Evil Matriarch and chances are, she will make that character's life a living hell.
The Evil Matriarch comes in two forms:
Comedic: Usually used in the Dom Com, this variety is usually the mother of one of the two parents on the show who comes to visit every so often, and someone on the cast dreads it. Usually (though not always) this variety of Evil Matriarch is a meddling parent, often to an irrational extreme. Classically, this is a Mother-in-Law situation, but from time to time, the kids themselves, or even the child of the mother is the one that dreads it. In some cases, everyone hates the Evil Matriarch, like in Malcolm in the Middle where everyone dreads Lois's mother coming to visit. In other cases, her visit is appreciated by everyone but the daughter or son of the Evil Matriarch, like in Family Ties, where the matriarch is evil because her daughter feels she can't live up to mom's perfection. Expect this variety of Evil Matriarch to have Power Hair and other Fashionable Evil.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Dramatic: This variety, which shows up in more dramatic media, is truly evil in a traditional sense, and is one of the worst villains one can face, especially if one of the Heroes or Love Interests is one of her children (or if she's married into his or her family as a stepmother). Many such Evil Matriarchs are completely convinced that they, and only they, know what's best for their children, and can be very controlling, manipulative, and perfectly willing to do anything they deem necessary for their children's sake, no matter how evil or destructive it may be. The most vicious examples of this variety of Evil Matriarch despise their children (or at least the one they've singled out as The Unfavorite) and are often physically or emotionally abusive towards them, and many of them are not above Offing the Offspring.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })If she's not entirely human, then expect her to be a Hive Queen. If she is also the Queen, expect God Save Us from the Queen!. If she is just a wanted criminal, then she's just a Notorious Parent.
The Spear Counterpart of this character type is Archnemesis Dad. The inversion is Antagonistic Offspring. See Abusive Parents and Parental Neglect for the more mundane versions. See Offing the Offspring and/or Matricide for what this might lead to if the kids fight back, or Hates Their Parent, for how the kid likely feels about them. If it's not your mother but her replacement who's making your life a living Hell, see Wicked Stepmother. If the evil mother in question actually has the word "mother" in her villain title, see One Bad Mother. Compare Villainous Mother-Son Duo, for when the mother and her offspring are active partners-in-crime.

Alcmene in Hallmark's made-for-TV movie Hercules. The mother of Hercules received some Adaptational Villainy, attempting to have her son Hercules murdered in his crib while he s still a kid, and after failing that, conspire to make his life a living hell. While she is mostly sympathetic example as result of being raped by Zeus (who brutally raped her in this version, instead of taking the form of her husband to bed her), she is far from a saintly person, serving as a mad high priestess that sacrificed men in the name of Hera.

Mary Jones, the mother in Precious. She allows her husband to rape their daughter, impregnating her twice. The firstborn child has Down's Syndrome and she sends that child to live with the grandmother. She receives welfare, but only spends it on herself, and puts on this wonderful mother routine when the social worker comes for visits. Even worse still, Mary physically, verbally, emotionally, and also sexually abuses Precious and eventually physically abuses the 2nd baby that Precious gives birth to.

Also from Marvel, the mother of Patsy Walker, aka Hellcat, Dorothy, had the slightly bad thing of making comics based on her daughter, who hated the notoriety those books brought her... and the outright unforgiving fact that she tried to bargain away Patsy's life in exchange for her own in a Deal with the Devil (well, A Devil), though thankfully, Hellcat's superhero teammates thwarted the demonic possession.

Played with in Up All Night episode named "Parents". Reagen dreads a visit from her mother, and is annoyed by her. Also, Reagen's mother is proud of how she brought up Reagen and writes a book about it, which annoys Reagen even more. Averted by the end of the episode, because Reagen's mother realizes what she was doing wrong after she has a heart to heart talk with Reagen and becomes more supportive.

Desperate Housewives has several examples of bad parenting, but Gloria Hodge and Barbara Orlofsky really tie for the first place. The former went to awful lengths to make her son remarry his ex-wife, even planning his rape and attempting to kill Bree. The latter's alcoholism and cruel behavior turned her son Eddie into a serial killer.

Beatrice Horseman from Bojack Horseman, mother of the eponymous protagonist, blames her son's birth for ruining her life and leaving her stranded in a horrible loveless marriage, which led her to becoming a horrible abusive mother and heavily contributing towards Bojack ecoming an extremely messed up individual with deep emotional scars. Season 4 goes into great detail explaining her backstory and humanizing her, but the show still makes it clear that regardless of what happened to her, the way she treated her son was not acceptable simply because she had a difficult life.

The High Priestess from Samurai Jack Season 5 is a truly brutal and chilling example of this trope. She is the leader of an all-female cult that worships Aku, and raised her seven daughters quite literally from birth to be her enforcers. She holds the dubious distinction of being one of the darkest villains in the show due to lacking the comedic quirks and Laughably Evil traits from previous antagonists, and setting the tone for Season 5.

Brigit Stark, Cinder Fall's mother from My Name Is Cinder, was an abusive, gold-digging, sociopath. She drove her husband to suicide for his money, threatened to make Cinder's life miserable if she exposed her true nature, turned her other two children against Cinder, and lived up to that threat by constantly beating and starving Cinder.

Flemeth of Dragon Age is Morrigan's mother and Ambiguously Evil at best, but she and Morrigan don't really like each other and fully expect to come to blows one day. Whatever affection Morrigan still had for her goes out the window when she discovers that Flemeth's immortality comes from possessing the bodies of her own children. After that, Morrigan asks the Warden to (temporarily) kill Flemeth while she makes longer-term plans. The third game complicates this: Flemeth, while still extremely manipulative, tells Morrigan that she could never have possessed an unwilling host, and is willing to let Morrigan (and her son, if he exists) go free.
It's heavily implied that Flemeth's treatment of Morrigan is more of Tough Love, judging her sorrowful reaction when Morrigan (particularly if she becomes a mother) angrily states that she will never be the mother Flemeth was to her/calmly telling Flemeth that Kieran will be better off without her just as she was better off without Flemeth.

X-Men: Mutant terrorist Mystique. She really does love her children, but Comic Book/Nightcrawler's the only one she hasn't stabbed or shot note she still threw him off a cliff when he was an infant.
Emma Frost, depending on which side she's on; she is either with the heroes or fighting against them, or manipulating both sides for personal gain.
Minor villain Nanny is a Well-Intentioned Extremist version after being trapped in her egg suit and driven insane by her superiors when she rebelled against their anti-mutant plans. Nanny uses her Orphan-Maker, a mutant child in a suit of power armor, to go around "Saving" mutant children from their human parents so she can provide a better home for them (which includes raising them to become her soldiers). It's hard not to understand her motives when so many human parents do treat their mutant children like pond scum.

The Second Wife from Auntie An-mei's childhood in The Joy Luck Club. Let's see, she got the First Wife addicted to opium, leaving her a shell of herself in constant religious agony, rules Third Wife like a puppet, had her husband rape an innocent guest to get him his Fourth Wife, and then arranged for a Fifth Wife whose greatest purpose would be to make Second Wife look better. And when Fourth Wife had a son, Second Wife claimed him for her own.

Gilmore Girls: Once Lorelai Gilmore reluctantly re-opens relations with her mother, Emily Gilmore is quickly revealed not only as a near-definitional example of Type 1 (oh, how Lorelai and Rory dread those family dinners!) but has strong shadings of Type 2, as well.
Vengeance is gained when Emily's Type 1 mother-in-law visits.
Emily is often portrayed sympathetically, however. Though manipulative, she does really want what's best for her family, and much (though not all) of her and Lorelai's strained relationship comes due to either personality clashes or Values Dissonance rather than hatred.

Adelaide French from The Cavaliers Series is the wife of Augustine, the most powerful vampire in existence. As a result, despite having only been turned less than twenty years ago, she commands a lot of power, respect, and even fear amongst The Cavaliers, her husband's secret society. Her human daughter, Harriet French, is the series' main protagonist. Adelaide is desperate to see her daughter turned by an eligible Cavalier and as a result, she forces her daughter's weaker love interest to pretend to hate her and removes her daughter's protection from mind control so that she can be mesmerised into falling for the "right" person. The fact that the "right" person killed her niece and attacked her daughter before knowing who she was doesn't seem to bother her. She's also ruthless about getting what she wants more generally and is scathing of anyone who doesn't live up to her high standards. On the other hand, despite going about things the wrong way, she seems to genuinely love her daughter and believes that she has her best interests at heart.

The Pride in Runaways is made up of six pairs of Archnemesis Dads and Evil Matriarchs. Interestingly, The Pride honestly believe that they are doing the best they can for their children: by destroying the world and allowing the Gibborim to remake it, they will be handing their children paradise. With one exception, the kids don't agree, and their interference ultimately leads to the deaths of all The Pride's members.

Angela Petrelli from Heroes. All her actions have shady motivations and she's not above using her children if the end justified the means (even considering killing one son at one point).
In light of the events of V3, however, it's difficult to figure out if Angela was always such a Cold Hard Bitch, or became one after she found out that her husband had been mind-controlling her for years, mind-raping her into going along with the aforementioned (narrowly averted) Offing the Offspring.

Christine Jones from Home and Away certainly falls into Type 2. She has invaded her daughter's privacy, invaded the privacy of her daughter's teacher, attempted to use her daughter Melody as an example of Miles' apparent corruption of schoolkids (by way of Spring Awakening), taken out an AVO against Geoff, ignored the fact that Melody was raped, institutionalized Melody after her rapist died, withdrew her daughter from the subsequent counseling (causing a nasty case of anorexia), attempted an exorcism, and then kidnapped Melody. Parent of the Year award right there.

Michael Wenton-Weakes's mother in Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, at least according to Michael.
In fact, Lady Wenton-Weakes is simply the opposite of a Beloved Smother; she thinks Michael has been horribly spoiled by his father, and hopes that selling his magazine to someone who might actually make something of it may encourage him to grow up a little.

Raven Branwen of RWBY, who is Yang's mother and constantly straddles the line between Byronic Hero, Anti-Hero and Anti-Villain. What is certainly true is that she is the queen of a ruthless bandit tribe and a dangerous woman with a Social Darwinist attitude to the world, and she will not even make exception for her own family if they get in her way.

Baldur's Gate II has the drow Matron Mother Ardulace, the political and religious leader of Ust Natha. As a part of her plan, she planned to use the eggs of the silver dragon to bribe a lesser demon lord to aid them in an attack on the elven capital Suldanessellar. She ruled with the usual drow cruelty – for example, when her own daughter appeared to be genuinely in love with a man instead of just using him and ditching right afterwards, she had her tortured until there was nothing left of her other than her ambition.

Hydia from My Little Pony the Movie. She does nothing but mistreat her daughters, going so far as to even punish them for calling her "mama". Since Reeka and Draggle get quite the Character Development and especially since they seem to be punch clock villains rather than actually evil, it's actually hard not to feel bad for them. (Specially Draggle since she's the one who gets treated worse.)

The Queen of the Night in Mozart's The Magic Flute. She uses the Wounded Gazelle Gambit to engage Tamino to kill Sarastro, ostensibly because Sarastro has kidnapped her daughter Pamina. When that fails, she goes to Pamina herself and tells her to murder Sarastro, or forever be disowned. She doesn't even try to help her daughter escape.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: Original Big Bad Precia Testarossa is the definitive Evil Matriarch, especially in the TV series where she is nothing but cruelty incarnate when it comes to her daughter Fate. Later adaptations would make her more sympathetic (especially INNOCENT, which completely removed the evil aspect and made her a full on Doting Parent).

Whateley Universe:
Phase's mother Helen Hilton-Goodkind. When Phase manifests as a mutant, Helen turns Phase over to a Mad Scientist for experimentation. Phase is fully aware that his mother is never going to speak to him again.
Jean-Armand, AKA Nephandus, has a mother much like this: while he loves her to death, she's not only controlling and dismissive of her son, she comes across as a total flake, and even he congratulates Nacht and She-Beast on dealing with her. In a much less comedic example, Nacht's mother (who actually killed her birth mother in order to raise her) is pure, absolute evil.

Discworld
Nanny Ogg is not very evil, but she rules over the entire Ogg clan (a massive family whose family tree is described as being closer to a mangrove thicket). She's quite benign and verges on My Beloved Smother for most of her family... except for her daughters-in-law, who cook for Nanny Ogg, clean for Nanny Ogg, and pray to the gods that Nanny Ogg doesn't come home from a vacation and find the slightest thing out of order. Famously, Nanny Ogg has never learned or remembered the names of any of her daughters-in-law.
In Hogfather, having an evil mum is the backstory of one of Teatime's thugs. She's dead and he's still more afraid of her memory than he is of Teatime. According to professional lockpick Mister Brown, this is entirely justified: he himself considers Teatime little more than a posturing thug next to her.

Played with in Final Fantasy VII. The main antagonist, Sephiroth, is carrying out of the will of his 'mother', the remains of a woman who belonged to the dead Cetra civilization. Sephy's info is a little out of date: The doctors who discovered the body assumed it was Cetra, as it was found at the site of their old home. The Shinra Power Company hoped to clone "her" and make the Cetra live again, but quickly realized that Jenova wasn't human at all: it's a mimetic monster who took on the guise of the Cetra to prey on them. Undeterred, Shinra sampled Jenova's cells to create a line of super-soldiers, the most successful of which was Sephiroth.

Kaede Domyoji from Boys over Flowers puts the family corporate behemoth before everything, including her children's potential happiness ("There is no place for ridiculous emotions like [love] in the Domyoji Group.") She neglects her son for years (which is implied to be the source of his semi-sociopathic fits of violence) until he gets involved with the Plucky Girl heroine, after which she devotes herself wholeheartedly to sabotaging the relationship by using her massive wealth and connections to blackmail and destroy everyone the heroine holds dear, an exercise she has already previously done with Tsukasa's older sister Tsubaki. When Tsukasa ends up in the hospital with amnesia, she doesn't even display any concern and merely exults in the fact that this will harm his relationship with his girlfriend.

Livia from Robert Graves' I, Claudius is the Evil Matriarch ramped up to x1000. She poisons/murders no less than 6 family members (including her husband, Emperor Augustus) in her scheme to set up her son as the next Emperor of Rome. (And she doesn't even do it just for him, she also does it as part of a scheme to become deified after her death, and thus become an immortal goddess, to escape punishment in the afterlife for her crimes.)

In Homestuck, Nanna Egbert and Grandpa Harley were raised by Betty Crocker after Grandpa accidentally killed her husband. This sort of thing is exactly why babies should not be allowed to dual-wield flintlock pistols. She apparently wasn't very kind to either of them, and was even harsher on Nanna when Grandpa ran away to explore the world. It turns out that she was the former empress of Alternia.

Tales of the Frog Princess Queen Olivine becomes this after the curse affects her when Chartreuse and Grassina are in their mid teens, and makes their lives miserable and tragic. While she doesn't plot anything evil on a large scale (she's already the queen) she doesn't allow her daughters to attend their father funeral and turns them into animals just to be cruel. On at least one occasion Chartreuse was very nearly caught and killed as a turtle. Oh, and she turns 14-year-old Haywood, Grassina's fiancé, into an otter. For at least fifteen years. And when they finally break that spell, they find Olivine has rigged it so that when he turned back into a man, Grassina would fall under her own curse, turning her into an ugly, evil old hag just like her mother.

Kagura's mother, Shinzen Tennozou, in Speed Grapher. Not only does she constantly belittle and starve her daughter out of resentment because her husband/Kagura's father abandoned her and that was the corollary to her Dark and Troubled Past, she even goes out of her way to show that thanks to her Screw the Rules, I Have Money! mentality, there is virtually nothing anybody can do to help, until Saiga shows up (he has it hard).
In this case, it's more like screw the savior; I have money.

It's implied Crawford did so because Carla, Boone's wife, made it clear she was unhappy with the small town of Novac and wanted to return to New Vegas, where she and her husband had met. Boone will give the player a quest that, if it ends the 'right' way, results in Jeannie May getting a Boom, Headshot! from Boone while standing right next to the Courier.

Sons of Anarchy:
Gemma Teller Morrow, who supplies her son's junkie ex-wife with heroin (in order to damage her health or kill her, keeping her away from the new baby), smashes a skateboard into the face of a girl she suspects is sleeping with her husband, and just generally manipulates people all over the place. Depending on how you view her motivations, she takes it up to eleven at the end of season six, attempting to drown Jax's wife Tara for allegedly ratting out the MC to the police and wanting to take away Gemma's grandchildren, and when that doesn't work, Gemma settles for stabbing Tara to death in the head with a barbecue fork.
Even Gemma doesn't hold a candle in the authority department to the one-shot character Vivica, the matriarch of a group of Gang Bangers made up of herself and her sons. When they go behind her back to handle a stolen guns deal so they could use the money to get her a birthday present, she is not happy and immediately Dope Slaps her boys, who are clearly terrified of her.

In Soul Eater, Medusa Gorgon is this to Crona in a twisted attempt to turn her child into the next Kishin. It all started when Medusa melted the Living Weapon Ragnarok into Black Blood and replaced Crona's blood with him, and it just spiraled down from there. As a form of training, Medusa forced Crona to kill animals and when they didn't comply she would lock them in a dark room with no food or water for as long as a few days until they did. Even when Crona's older, she has such a strong hold on them that she easily manipulated their emotions and desires so that they'd remain loyal and dependent on her out of pure fear. Fortunately in the anime, Crona found the strength to stand against her and officially join the good side. But in the manga, they weren't so lucky.

Olivia Foxworth, the terrifying grandmother from Flowers in the Attic. She convinces her daughter to hide her four children in the attic of the family mansion in order to avoid being erased from the family line of inheritance. The children are starved, beaten, and terrorized by the grandmother, and eventually neglected. It later emerges that Grandmother, in combination with her daughter schemed to kill the children by poisoning their food with arsenic. She is somewhat redeemed in one of the sequels, although this may be partial Canon Discontinuity because it was completed by the ghostwriter who succeeded Andrews after her death.

Silent Hill seems to have a thing for this trope. Dahlia Gillespie and Margaret Holloway could very well be friends with Sofia Lamb, considering their willingness to torture, abuse, and sacrifice their own daughters in ways that makes the devil shiver. By far, the least awful mother in the series is Walter Sullivan's mother, who had the decency of just abandoning him in an apartment, rather than sacrificing him to some God of Evil, Eldritch Abomination, The Devil, or whatever the Order worships.

By the time of the Everybody Loves Raymond story, the condescending smotherer Marie dwells in a house directly across the street from her son's family and is constantly dropping by on her every whim and fancy.
It was actually Raymond and Debra who moved across the street from Marie and Frank, as revealed in a flashback episode. Raymond spent the episode trying to convince Debra not to do it, but gave up in the end. Debra regrets not listening to Raymond.

Ultra Fast Pony portrays Granny Smith as the head of the Apple crime family. Aside from the offscreen villainy she presumably engages in as a mob head, she alternates between messing with her granddaughter Apple Bloom's head and peeing on her. She even casually mentions that she used to eat babies.

Mary Asher from Tribe Twelve might just be one of the most extreme examples of this trope. She gives birth to her son Milo with the intention of sacrificing him to Slender Man rather than actually raise him, forces him to take pills that make him a mindless husk, and ships him off to a mental institution after he attempts to stop taking the pills. And that's just the things she's done to her own son. She also murders Milo's biological and step fathers and tries to burn down her sister's house containing her young nephew Noah out paranoia of them being "Mr. Scars" (the one who's prophesied to kill her), and is generally dismissive and nasty towards anyone. It's no wonder that she has 0% Approval Rating amongst her whole family.

Succeeding Hilda would be Sonia from Blazing Sword. Not only is she sadistic and manipulative, but she constantly verbally abuses her adopted daughter Nino, and when she isn't doing that, she's neglecting her instead. It eventually comes to the point where she secretly plots to have Nino killed just after promising to hug her if she completes her mission. To hammer the point home, when Nino confronts her later, she freely admits to having slain Nino's real family when Nino was just a baby, and even says she would have killed Nino too had Nergal not told her to raise her.

In A Brother's Price, all organized crime is expected to be managed by an evil matriarch, as families are very close, and usually all members of a family are brought to court for a crime one of them committed. Rank is determined by age, the eldest sister in a family is named Eldest and becomes Mother Elder when she has her first child. The evil matriarch in any given family of criminals is therefore the Mother Elder. Strictly enforced discipline, and the fact that criminal individuals are thrown out of lawful families, more or less guarantees that a family that turns to crime will have an evil matriarch in charge. The villains actually murdered their own mothers (who were in on the conspiracy, so likely evil matriarchs themselves) in order to shut them up, as the family "doesn't age well" and tends to senility. The main villain has already one child, and is the Eldest of the family, so she is well on her way to becoming an evil matriarch herself.

Deconstructed in Corner Alley 13, wherein drow society is revealed to be so backstabbingly treacherous (the Klingon Promotion being their standard method of electing new leaders) that even the nicest of matriarchs are forced to become vicious tyrants to keep their positions and their heads.

In the 2003 anime version of Fullmetal Alchemist, Sloth is the failed resurrection of the Elric brothers' mother, Trisha. As such, she attempts to kill her previous incarnation's children to assert her own individuality and convince herself that she is not Trisha — all while Wrath, a child Homonculus who's the failed resurrection of Izumi Curtis' unborn son, sees her as a mother figure. She may have decided otherwise right before dying, if her Famous Last Words are a signal.

Bernarda Alba from García Lorca's play La casa de Bernarda Alba ("The House of Bernarda Alba"). Even in the 1930, when all the values this woman embodied were still living in the deepest of Spain's countryside, she still managed to come as too oppressive, coldhearted, cruel, and smothering (and not only for her old maid), to the point of killing her youngest daughter, Adela, when she openly defies her and tries to run away... and then happily claiming "My daughter, she dies a virgin!"

Variation with Benezia in Mass Effect, as she is eventually revealed to be indoctrinated by Sovereign.
Benezia actually earns triple points for this: Not only is she an evil (alright, convincingly mind-controlled) matriarch, but she is actually called Matriarch Benezia (it's her official title); is a literal mother to one of the main characters (who she tries to kill, still not of her free will); and is even caught conducting mind control and breeding experiments on an insectoid race (which, if successful, would have made her a literal Hive Queen). However, her final words to her daughter Liara after having her mind cleared subvert this, saying that she's always been proud of her.

Helena Cassadine from General Hospital. Head of a Greco-Russian almost-royal family, after the death of her not-so-loved husband Mikos, decided to get revenge and started killing for sport. Her unforgettable rivalry with GH's most famous super couple Luke and Laura, began when she cursed them at their wedding in the 80's. She reappeared again in 1996, with all the intentions to make life miserable to everyone in her family, especially her much hated son Stefan and her bastard step-daughter Alexis. Usually, when something evil happens in Port Charles, it's her fault. She stole, lied, cheated, killed, swapped DNA results, and even hibernated her beloved son Stavros (who everyone had thought had died, and thanks to her, appeared very much alive in 2001). Mortal enemy to Luke Spencer who tried to kill her more than once.

Geleth Pa'Dar in the Star Trek novel The Never-Ending Sacrifice. A product of the traditional Cardassia, where life was a struggle for survival on a starving planet, she is utterly ruthless and quite unrepentant about it. At one point, she suggests with total ease and in full seriousness that her son should have her grandson Rugal killed. Rugal ends up in an ongoing battle of wills with Geleth after coming to live in the family home. Finally, just before dying of old age, she shares her secrets with Rugal, which involve casually having an innocent man arrested and executed on false charges.
In Star Trek: Forged in Fire, Lady of the House Moj'ih would rather kill her albino baby than allow his condition to bring shame to the family. She is following Klingon custom here; the Honor Before Reason nature of her culture blunts the individual evil to some extent. She still fits the trope, though.

Maven Black-Briar in Skyrim. She has had employees killed simply because they don't do their job well enough, and actively seeks to blackmail or murder her business rivals. She is grooming her son Hemming to take over the family's business empire, and her connections enable her to have her grandson Sibbi set up with a Luxury Prison Suite and a shorter sentence despite him having commited murder. Maven is essentially The Don, and controls much of her home city of Riften through the Thieves' Guild and The Dark Brotherhood.

The Pony POV Series has Discord's mother Entropy, the Anthropomorphic Personification of Heat Death. As such, she's an Omnicidal Maniac by job description, and therefore has no care for anything, least of all her children. Hell, she erased one of her children from existence because ___ talked back to her.
However, this is ultimately subverted, as it's revealed this was Celestia's somewhat bias interpretation of her. Entropy's actually a bit more complicated than that: She's the End of Suffering, the End of Tyranny, etc. and has ZERO love for murderers and OTHER Omnicidal Maniac types because She doesn't want anything to end before its time. And it turns out she erased ____ because he was trying to kill off Nature's Law, which would've more or less wrecked the universe.

Girl Genius has Lucrezia Mongfish, aka the Other, who is both the heroine Agatha's mother and the comic's Big Bad.
Also 'Grandmother', of the extended Valois family. Even the most scheming and murderous of the family seem to be scared of her. She seems fairly benign so far, but the reactions of people around her suggest that this isn't the case.

Prim from the Evillious Chronicles, although this isn't expanded on until the revelations in Praeludium Of Red and Praefacio Of Blue where it becomes apparent she raped the king of Lucifenia and used the resulting child as little more than a spy slave, manipulated every aspect of her son's life to make him a king he didn't want to be (including letting him get possessed by a demon), and triggered 20 years of international warfare just to get back at a former friend. Who was already dead halfway through those 20 years.

On Lost, Jacob and MIB are fraternal twins raised on the island by "Mother", played by Allison Janney. She actually killed their real mother, a shipwrecked pregnant woman, right after they were born. She then lies to them about there being nothing across the sea and stops any attempt by MIB to leave, including killing all the shipwrecked castaways helping him. All so that either Jacob or MIB can take over being guardian of the island.

Rome's Atia of the Julii is another ancient Evil Matriarch. She uses sex to get what she wants, verbally abuses her children and everyone around her, arranges the murder of her daughter's ex-husband (whom her daughter still loved), and sabotages her uncle's romance. (Oddly enough, some of these actions might have been prompted by a sincere desire to help her family, but her motivations are, for the most part, selfish.)
Servilia, from that same series, isn't exactly a paragon of virtue either.

In Hogfather, having an evil mum is the backstory of one of Teatime's thugs. She's dead and he's still more afraid of her memory than he is of Teatime. According to professional lockpick Mister Brown, this is entirely justified: he himself considers Teatime little more than a posturing thug next to her.

Possibly the classic BattleTech example would be Romano Liao. Interestingly, she probably couldn't be considered her son Sun-Tzu's enemy as such...but there's little doubt that growing up as the son of a crazy fanatic holding her Successor State together by such time-proven methods as trusting no one and "purging" whomever she as much as suspected of wrongdoing must have been pretty much Hell for a remarkably rational offspring of that particular branch of the family tree.

Damian Wayne's mother Talia al Ghul has fallen here lately, taking control of her son's nervous system to kill his older brother/mentor Dick Grayson and then revealing to Damian that she had begun cloning him when it became clear to her that he was no longer doing what she wanted him to do in Batman & Robin # 12. When Damian asked why she couldn't love him for who he was (showing a rare hint of Woobie-ism), Talia replied "No. I'm too much of a perfectionist" and declared him an enemy of the House of al Ghul, where he spent at least the first three quarters of his life. Oh, and he's ten. Culminates in Offing the Offspring when she allows the clone, Heretic, to brutally kill Damian. Of course she already had hints of this as she raised Damian to think he needed to kill Tim to replace him in his father's household.

Tamaki's grandmother Shizune in Ouran High School Host Club looks down on him because he can't live up to her restrictively high standards for her family, and forbids him from seeing his mother. Oh, and Tamaki is the heir because his grandmother bought him, as Tamaki's Ill Girl mother Anne Sophie would quickly die in a life of poverty.
She may be worse in the anime. To her, Tamaki is nothing but a tool to marry off to the Tonaire family so that they can produce a legitimate heir. This doesn't bother Tamaki in the slightest, as he knows his grandmother despises him and already has dreams beyond the Suoh corporation.

The Elder Scrolls
Hagravens, a species of flightless harpy who were once mortal women that performed a ritual in which they trade their humanity for access to powerful magic, are viewed as this by the Reachmen. Referred to specifically as "matriarchs," Reachmen groups are often found led by a Hagraven.
The Night Mother is a mysterious figure who leads the Dark Brotherhood, an illegal assassins guild whose members typically take a sadistic glee in killing and who practice a Religion of Evil, worshiping the "Dread Father" Sithis, the primordial "Is-Not" antithesis of creation represented by a great void. According to legend, the Night Mother was once a mortal woman who sacrificed her five children in the name of Sithis, and became the wife of Sithis after her death.
Maven Black-Briar in Skyrim. She has had employees killed simply because they don't do their job well enough, and actively seeks to blackmail or murder her business rivals. She is grooming her son Hemming to take over the family's business empire, and her connections enable her to have her grandson Sibbi set up with a Luxury Prison Suite and a shorter sentence despite him having commited murder. Maven is essentially The Don, and controls much of her home city of Riften through the Thieves' Guild and The Dark Brotherhood.

Queen Cersei Lannister from A Song of Ice and Fire. Many of her villainous deeds stem from protecting her children, but mostly from a prophecy about her years ago. She would outlive all of her children who would die as kings and queens, and she would be overthrown by a younger queen, and killed by one of her siblings.

Whoopie Goldburg portrays a version of one in the Law & Order Franchise, running a center where she takes in and raises disenfranchised youths, primarily black. To the public she's a great philanthropist but in secret she's raised the young boys and men into thieves and killers to serve her using their love for her to manipulate them such that none of them can be convinced into speaking against her and will even kill themselves for her. As a result it is one of the few downer endings in the series where the police know her for who and what she is but are forced to let her go as they can't prove it.

One Piece has Charlotte Linlin aka "Big Mom", one of the Four Emperors. Despite her horrifying physical appearance, she has 39 daughters (one of which is to be married to Sanji as part of a political alliance with the Vinsmoke Big, Screwed-Up Family) and 46 sons, each of which she marries off in order to extend her power. This doesn't stop her from murdering one of her own children on a whim during a hunger-motivated, psychotic episode, plus actively encouraging her young children to be violent and psychotic- even against their own siblings-. Her son Charlotte Opera flat out notes that she'll consciously kill him herself if she finds out that he failed to stop Jimbei.

Jeeves and Wooster: Not quite a matriarch, but it's hard not to think of Bertie Wooster's Aunt Agatha, "who eats broken bottles and turns into a werewolf on the full moon."
Nearly all P. G. Wodehouse aunts are like this, but a character who fits the trope more exactly is Lady Julia Fish in the Blandings Castle novel Heavy Weather, who despises (though she loves) her son Ronnie and tries to break his engagement to chorus-girl Sue Brown.

Hilda from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Tortures her sister-in-law Tiltyu and her daughter Tinny for good measure (and if Tiltyu dies childless, she tortures her other sister in law Ethnia and her daughter Linda), and while she keeps saying it's to punish traitors, deep down, she just enjoys torturing. The result becomes obvious. Tiltyu (or Ethnia) becomes extremely broken and cries everyday until she dies from sickness, and Tinny (or Linda) ends up as a Shrinking Violet. And then, Hilda keeps pressuring her blood daughter and local Dark Magical Girl Ishtar to marry her boyfriend Julius, the Imperial Prince of Grandbell, just so she can get more links and power from the Emperor. And in Thracia 776, it's revealed that even her husband Blume does not support child hunts... but she supports it wholeheartedly. But she makes the fatal mistake of underestimating Arthur (or Amid)... and Tinny herself (or Linda).
Succeeding Hilda would be Sonia from Blazing Sword. Not only is she sadistic and manipulative, but she constantly verbally abuses her adopted daughter Nino, and when she isn't doing that, she's neglecting her instead. It eventually comes to the point where she secretly plots to have Nino killed just after promising to hug her if she completes her mission. To hammer the point home, when Nino confronts her later, she freely admits to having slain Nino's real family when Nino was just a baby, and even says she would have killed Nino too had Nergal not told her to raise her.

Jesse Custer's grandmother from Preacher is this trope taken to ludicrous and horrific extremes.

She claims responsibility for the horrible deaths of her first husband and her two elder sons and later off-handedly wonders if she should kill her daughter as well. All in front of her youngest son, whom she taunts for being powerless to do anything about it. He is very screwed up as a result...and that's almost certainly intentional on her part. She's also The Usurper of an empire and the leader of an organization that wants to summon a God of Evil to kill everyone on the planet. Actually subverted since Gyokuen used to be a kind and good mother in the past, but she was subjected to Demonic Possession by Arba (the leader of the evil organization Al-Thamen and pretty much the Big Bad) and shit hit the fan from then on.
And speaking of the devil Arba herself is an exaggeration of this trope. First, she was the mother figure to The High Queen Sheba, then she killed her cold-bloodedly despite Solomon and Sheba believed her so much. Then after Ugo moved the people of Alma Torran to the current world, she comes along with Al-Thamen. Unlike the other Al-Thamen members however, she can maintain almost all of her power (be it magical of physical) ,with possessing her own children, and if her previous vessel have grown too old, she will move to the child of the previous vessel. She prefers women as her vessel, but she can possess men too if she didn't have a daughter at any generation. Truly a wicked mother...

The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness: In Outcast, the fourth part of the series, it's revealed that Seshru the Viper Mage is Renn's mother. Seshru had originally impregnated herself with Renn only so that she could make her newborn her personal tokoroth. After that failed, Seshru wasn't anyhow interested in Renn, who in turn knew of her bloodline since her father's death and refused to study Magecraft due to her mother's legacy as a Soul Eater. It's not before Outcast that Seshru realizes their connection, but she merely sees it as a tool to drive a wedge between the heroes.

Ooku: The Inner Chambers:
Technically speaking, Kasuga was merely Iemitsu the Elder's wet-nurse, but for all intents and purposes she was the evil matriarch behind the throne, who spoiled Iemitsu to the point of smothering, then, when he died without an heir, arranged for the mother of his illegitimate daughter to be murdered, kidnapped his illegitimate daughter, and forced her to pose her father until she could conceive a heir to place on the throne. To that end, she more or less imprisoned Arikoto to be the Glorified Sperm Donor and murders anyone who could reveal an impostor's on the throne. However, she actually has good intentions for going to such extremes: she lived through the Sengoku Period, and lost her family and home in the process, and was desperate to keep Japan from having another civil war.
However, she pales in comparison to Tokugawa Harusada, mother of Shogun Ienari. After copious amounts of kicking the dog to get to the top, she abdicates in favor of Ienari to be the power behind the throne without the need to produce heirs. She then proceeds to run the country into the dirt with excessive spending, drives out advisors for petty reasons, poisoned her loyal retainer, suppressed attempts to find a cure for the Redface Pox to keep herself and other women in power, and finally, poisoned her own grandchildren, and it's implied she did that because she was bored.

Game of Thrones: Cersei Lannister is a deconstruction of one for Lannister-Baratheons until her father The Patriarch arrives in the city. While she genuinely loves her children (despite being an abusive mother) and would do anything to protect or avenge them, some of her actions prove to be a greater threat to the safety of her children than those of her enemies (who are often far more intelligent and competent than she is). In the end her last remaining child commits suicide because of her, but by that time Cersei is too far gone to even care.

Carrie's mother Margaret White. A religious fanatic who fiercely abhors everything even slightly related to femininity and female sexuality, and who sees her psychic daughter as nothing but an abomination and a shameful reminder of that one dreadful time when her husband had his way with her. Needless to say, this ends horribly.

During the Alvarez Empire arc of Fairy Tail, Irene Belserion, one of the strongest members of the Spriggan 12, reveals that she is Erza's long-lost mother. She not only serves Zeref during his invasion of Fiore, but she had also attempted to pull a Grand Theft Me on her own daughter, shortly after Erza's birth, and claims to have abandoned her when it didn't work. It turns out that Irene was the first Dragon Slayer, and ultimately turned into a dragon like Acnologia, while pregnant with Erza. After spending several centuries as a dragon, she decided to take over Erza's body to regain her human form. In spite of everything, she becomes at least a little sympathetic when it turns out she was misremembering the circumstances of Erza's abandonment - she actually did love her daughter, and decided against stealing baby Erza's body, before leaving her in case she was ever tempted to try again.

In The Punisher (2004), the Big Bad's wife is this. When one of her sons dies at Castle's hand, she is the first who insists on bloody revenge on Castle's family, to which her husband asks if she's sure before issuing the order. This was Frank Castle the cop, and the son was accidentally killed during a shootout. In the movie-verse, this is actually what turned Frank into The Punisher.

Cheshire of Teen Titans was responsible for giving birth to Roy Harper's daughter Lian. Over the years it's been up for debate as to whether or not Cheshire has been capable of genuine love for her daughter. Roy has made it clear he's raising Lian because he does not believe Cheshire can be trusted, and any possibility of getting in contact with her has been shot down. Black Canary once told one of Lian's babysitters that if her mom showed up, to lock the door and scream for Superman or any other hero in the vicinity. Finally, in Villains United, Cheshire conceived a replacement child by Catman, when Lian's welfare was held over her head to ensure her cooperation with the Secret Six. It's now entirely debatable as to whether or not any love Cheshire has for any of her children is just as a means to keep hold over their fathers, a superhero with connections to the Teen Titans and the Justice League, and a supervillain who is considered once of the deadliest trackers in the world. It's also likely the emotional and sexual trauma Cheshire suffered from a childhood in slavery is the reason why her maternal love is so hindered by her more psychotic behavior, as the love she feels for her children isn't enough to override her fear of being trapped again.

Ragyo Kiryuin from Kill la Kill, the powerful head of the Kiryuin Conglomerate and Greater-Scope Villain of the series. A sinister Evilutionary Biologist that has used her own family in experiments and subjects her daughter to rather.....disturbing displays of affection. Little surprise that Satsuki stabs her in the back. Too bad it didn't take, since she's a Life Fiber-fused monster that can reattach her own head. And then there's what she did to her other daughter, and her husband, and... Ragyo is often considered the reigning champion of 'Anime's Worst Mother'.

Though in this case, she was also stated to be under the effects of Nihilego's neurotoxins, and Lillie says she was a genuinely good and caring mother before she researched too much into the Ultra Beasts.

Diablo III gives us Adria, the Witch of Tristram. Despite being the secondary protagonist's birth mother and a traditional aid to the player character, she allows them to destroy two Demon Lords and their armies before betraying the player, killing several allies and using her own daughter as the vessel for her dark master, Diablo himself, to be reborn as the embodiment of all evil. She performs a double-bluff in some respects, as she is openly a harsh and unpleasant individual, and is not depicted as particularly charismatic or powerful — an average spellcaster at best. She is, however, a cruel liar, and uses her record of trauma and tragedy to draw suspicion away from her true agenda.

Ren Sohma, Akito's mother, from Fruits Basket. She's probably one of the worst fictional parents ever.
There's also Yuki and Ayame's mother, who had no qualms about abandoning/selling and ignoring them respectively. In a flashback, it was revealed that she and her husband were off "living it up" with the money and status they got from Yuki being Akito's companion — while Yuki was deathly ill. Unlike others of her ilk, she's hinted in the manga to have started to get better, after Ayame completely owns her at the parent conference.

Pokémon Reset Bloodlines has Heratia, the mother of the Seven Brothers of Orre. Each of them grew up to become a notorious criminal in his own right (barring one who managed to escape from her), but she was way worse to them when they were children, forcing them to learn skills she could use to commit her crimes (like reading complex languages, use of weapons and Pokémon raising), and punishing them whenever they failed. Unsurprisingly, as soon as they saw the chance they killed her in retaliation.

Cora, the mother of the Evil Queen Regina herself, in Once Upon a Time. She has no qualms about putting a child at risk (by causing child Snow's horse to run away) to promote her agenda for her daughter's life, and when Regina wants to actually choose her own husband, Mom kills the man her daughter loves, then Mom strongarms her into marrying a man she's not interested in just because he's King.
When Red's mother shows up in season two, she seems like she's nice and supportive. She's not evil per se, but her Proud Warrior Race Girl and Humans Are the Real Monsters attitude puts her in direct contrast with her daughter. Her decision to go Bitch in Sheep's Clothing by killing Snow, who didn't do anything wrong, ends up getting her killed by Red.
Rumplestiltskin's mother is shaping up to be this. She is a legendary dark magical being mentioned several times throughout the show before her appearance. Thus far, her crimes include stealing babies on a regular basis, abandoning her child as an infant, laughing in his face and throwing him to the ground when he confronts her as an adult, stealing his and Belle's infant son, raising him away from his parents to be evil and kill Emma, and hospitalizing the Blue Fairy. And that's in the span of two episodes. It's likely season 6B will make the list even longer. She's a very literal matriarch too as she is also Neal's grandmother and Henry's great-grandmother, thereby making her indirectly related to the entire cast.

Stephanie Forrester from The Bold and the Beautiful is a clear example of this trope, having spent 22 years trying to drive Brooke Logan out of her family after Brooke married both her husband and later two of her sons. Her worst crimes include hiring a man to make Brooke look like an unfit parent who eventually ended up raping Brooke (though to be fair, Stephanie had no idea what the man was capable of) and attempting to poison another woman who was pregnant with her son's child, thus making her guilty of attempted murder of her own grandchild.

While Penny Halliwell from Charmed is on the side of good, she heavily blurs the line of this trope. It's heavily implied she was a stern and strict woman to grow up with, one episode implies that she used her magic to get rid of a boyfriend of Prue's she didn't like. She's also shown to be very bitter and hostile towards men, bordering on emotional abuse: she was even ready to disown her own grandson for not being a girl. This is balanced out by her being heroic on various occasions.

The Ancestress from Barry Hughart's Bridge of Birds. A former imperial concubine, she murdered the emperor and ruled China through their son. When a successful rebel overthrew and killed her son, the rebel spared the Ancestress as well as the dead emperor's daughter. She sets about arranging to breed sons from her granddaughter, so she can force them to retake the crown.

Livia Soprano from The Sopranos takes pleasure in tormenting people around her, especially her son Tony. She even tries to off him once.
Nearly a case of Truth in Television except for the attempted killing part, presumably, as she's based on creator David Chase's own mother.
Also a case of Meaningful Name.

Fire and Hemlock: Laurel, depicted as a youngish Evil Matriarch who dominates everyone in the extended family based in the mansion where Polly met Tom Lynn. (Tom included; she's said to be his ex-wife.) She's actually the Queen of the Fairies. Which doesn't lessen this trope one bit.

Black Maria (also titled Aunt Maria): While Aunt Maria seems like the sweet lady who runs the local ladies gatherings, she actually tries to groom the narrator, Mig, as an heir. Along the way, she turns Mig's brother into a wolf, brainwashes their mother to not notice his disappearance and act as the housekeeper, has Mig eventually sent to be locked up with the town "orphans" (another one of her plots — they're actually the children of the townsfolk who Maria is trying to control), and eventually it is revealed that she turned her own daughter into a wolf after they had an argument. And the daughter was killed when Maria tried to get Mig's brother shot in a wolf hunt.

Mags Bennett in season two of Justified controls all the marijuana operations in Harlan County, and while she seems like a nice woman, she is actually Affably Evil.
If you grow pot without her permission, she will send her sons to force you to put your foot in a bear trap
If you do something to hurt her business, she will have a nice chat with you and then give you some of her poisoned moonshine.
If one of her sons does something stupid that might expose the murders they committed, she will settle for personally breaking his hand with a hammer.

Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, from Downton Abbey is a Machiavellian manipulator willing to go to considerable lengths to keep her family and its honor safe. Although her heart is usually in the right place, she plays up the part of Evil Matriarch for effect.

From Wandaba Style, Furoku Tsutsumo, mother of Teen Genius Susumu, will go to any length to make her son admit that she is right and he wrong when it comes to space travel (she believes in furthering scientific achievement at any cost while he would rather try to find a way to launch a rocket that's environmentally friendly). Over the course of the series, she fakes a moon landing and makes it look like Susumu did it, blackmails his pilots into coming to the moon with her while neglecting to mention that there isn't a return trip, and nearly refuses to accept her son's truce when he comes to rescue them.

Combine this with possessiveness reminiscent of a Yandere but without any of the affection and One-Winged Angel and you get the Other Mother from Coraline.
