It has just now hit me - I'm rereading Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities - that there is a lot of Madame Defarge in the Scarlett's character concept/personality as well.
Bonus points for Cities to also have a character named Sydney in it as well! However, unlike Ice Age's Sid, Sydney Carton is a selfish man who grows beyond his selfishness out of love for both Charles Darney and Lucie Manette.
Sid the sloth wishes he could be as admirable!

Monsieur Defarge: So, are you in an 'I just need to rest' kind of bad mood, or are you in an 'I'm about to stab stuff until I feel better' kind of bad mood?
Madame Defarge, lying on the floor with a knife clutched in her hands: I haven't decided yet.

i’m less of an “aesthetic” knitter and more of an “encode the names of my enemies to be killed while watching the aristocrats go to the guillotine” knitter.

Jane Perkins Madame DeFarge
"She was absolutely without pity. If she had ever had the virtue in her, it had quite gone out of her.”

All the tops in the world combined wouldn’t have half as much top energy as Madame Defarge has.
And that’s on revolution lads, lasses, and the non-binary masses

(Shin Young Sook as Madame Defarge)
“There were many women at that time, upon whom the time laid a dreadfully disfiguring hand; but, there was not one among them more to be dreaded than this ruthless woman, now taking her way along the streets. Of a strong and fearless character, of shrewd sense and readiness, of great determination, of that kind of beauty which not only seems to impart to its possessor firmness and animosity, but to strike into others an instinctive recognition of those qualities; the troubled time would have heaved her up, under any circumstances. But, imbued from her childhood with a brooding sense of wrong, and an inveterate hatred of a class, opportunity had developed her into a tigress. She was absolutely without pity. If she had ever had the virtue in her, it had quite gone out of her.”
 (A Tale of Two Cities, Book Three, Chapter Four)

Madame Defarge: I don't have any weapons on me.
Monsieur Defarge:
Madame Defarge: Ok, I take that back. I don't have any weapons currently in my hands.
Monsieur Defarge:
Madame Defarge: That's a lie also.

Sorry to literature on main but we’re reading Tale of Two Cities in my AP Lit class so here’s an experimental Madame Defarge (I have not finished the book, this is what she looks like in my head).
