Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me, aren't you?
~ Benjamin Braddock, upon being seduced by Mrs. Robinson
You know you can't resist me. No man can.
~ Poison Ivy to Bruce Wayne

A beautiful, seductive, but ultimately villainous, woman who uses the malign power of her sexuality in order to ensnare the hapless hero into danger. This is the exact opposite of Ingenue. Examples of femme fatales: Darth Talon, Delilah, Lady Luck, Catwoman, and Mileena.

Another type of Femme Fatale is the Vamp. The Vamp is a type of villainess that uses her looks and/or charms to try to lure the character mostly to the dark side, or to do work for her. Vamps are more dangerous than the regular Femme Fatale. Also, the Vamp is more evil than the Femme Fatale, and focuses more on evil work, than the average Femme Fatale, while the Femme Fatale can also be on the good side, which is known as the "Heroic Seductress", the exact opposite of a Vamp.

NOTE: A woman who is JUST ONLY "deadly" and or a "killer" is NOT a Femme Fatale!
