Often we we get lists of greatest female villains, we see a lot of female villains who are partners, or eve just henchwomen for greater, male villains

And while I believe they have a place, there should be a greater respect for females who are themselves Big Bads

this thread will be dedicated to all of the females who don't need a man to boss them around to do evil

The Borg Queen

Sailor Galaxia

Nebula (for the most part)

Cheetah

Dark Phoenix

Bomb Queen

The Angelus

Lolth

Maleficent

Queen Myrrah from the Gears of War series.

Here is a little info about her from the GOW wiki.

"The world is rightfully ours!"
— Myrrah

Myrrah was the Queen of the Locust Horde during both the Locust Civil War and Locust War simultaneously, and then continued in the Lambent Pandemic with the remaining loyal Locust Horde forces. She led her people in an effort hoping to colonize the surface and to destroy the Lambent threat in the Hollow. To accompish this, Myrrah demands the genocide of the Human race after Professor Adam Fenix failed to find a way to destroy the Lambent. Due to her status over her subjects as the Queen, the Locust treat her with the utmost respect, dying for her if necessary. She was killed by Marcus Fenix following the Second Battle of Azura and extinction of the Locust and Lambent due to Adam's Imulsion Countermeasure Weapon.

During the early Pendulum Wars, almost a century before the Lambent Pandemic, the COG established the New Hope Research Facility to study the possible toxicity of Imulsion. Because of the discoveries made there, the facility was shut down and the scientists as well as a large number of test subjects were forced to relocate to Mount Kadar. Myrrah is a descendant of these scientists and, unlike the New Hope subjects, is completely human.[1]

Myrrah's title of Queen is self-given and does not have power related to royalty or genealogy.[2] Nonetheless, the Locust Horde is ardently devoted to their Queen. Myrrah resents humanity for forcing the Locust underground after New Hope was shut down. Where the COG saw mutated, poisoned humans Myrrah saw an evolved, stronger race.[3] Through both fear and respect she pushes her Locust to take their rightful place as the dominant species on Sera

.

"The Humans of Sera built a glorious civilization, but Humans are not destined to create. They ultimately did what they do best. Destroy. But this was nothing, compared to a new threat, from below. An enemy that will force Humanity to take their last, inevitable steps, toward extinction."
— Queen Myrrah on E-Day
How the hell did the Locust Queen know Adam Fenix? She just said that to fuck with Marcus's head. The bitch was probably the one who killed his dad anyway." — Dom's thoughts on the Queen

Myrrah holds cynical and xenophobic views, which drive her ruthless war tactics. She sees the human race as savages that only destroy, and that no matter how hard they may try, they will always be destined to destroy. Believing that, she ordered the genocidal assault on the surface of Sera beginning on Emergence Day after the Lambent threat arose in the Hollow, rather than seeking diplomacy, and saw the human's penchant for destruction fulfilled when the humans countered the Locust's near victory with the Hammer of Dawn counterattack. During Operation: Hollow Storm, she was willing to sacrifice the Hollows so her race could colonize the surface.[18] Much can be learned of her nature during her exchange with Marcus Fenix during the Second Battle of Azura. Here, she repeatedly lambasts the human race for seeing the Locust as beneath them, despite the fact she views humanity in exactly the same way.

Queen Myrrah's view on the Lambent is that of an infection. Her hatred for the Lambent is described as an "infection" that afflicts the Locust Horde. On a propaganda broadcast to her troops, she explains, "We cannot allow the Lambent to pollute the surface. We must bury their infection here."

She refuses to surrender either to the humans or the Lambent and wishes for the Locust Horde to reign not only supreme over the others, but to exterminate all other threats to the Horde as well.

"Okay, I really got to know what Myrrah was talking about. I mean, she looks Human. What? Did she join the Locust country club for shits and giggles, or somethin'?"
Damon Baird

Myrrah is a descendant of the scientists who worked at the New Hope Research Facility. Unlike the Locust, Myrrah is human and contains no trace of the lambency that is inherently present in their genes, though she considers herself Locust.

Unlike the rest of the Locust Horde and Locust females, Myrrah exhibits human-like qualities in her appearance and mannerisms. Most notable is the fact that she speaks Tyran fluently, unlike others in the Horde who only speak short phrases at a time. Her physical appearance, excluding her pale skin, is noticeably devoid of Locust mutations

I know, but I think she really could hold herself based on the times she HAS worked alone. I guess you're right, though.

Blackarachnia

Very interesting character and for anyone who has seen Beast Wars will know what I mean.She did eventually become a Maximal but was a Predacon for the longest time. She didn't officially become one until late on in the series in fact.

Oh sure she wasn't the main villain in the series far from it really but she was a very strong and intriguing character.

@betatesthighlander1: Well depending on the continuity sometimes she isn't even loyal to Cobra Commander.Id still say she is a strong villain despite the fact she isn't in charge I mean like other Joe villains such as Zartan,Firefly,Storm Shadow,Destro etc who may not be leader of Cobra but are very strong characters in their own right and she is very high ranking in Cobra.

I guess that makes sense

but this is really more about women/feminine entities who are themselves "Big Bad"s
