Nendoroid Dark lady - Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Maouyuu Moau Yuusha, or Archenemy and Hero, is a clever light novel / anime franchise, the premise of which is that, when the Hero appears to vanquish the King of Demons, she turns out to be pretty reasonable, and they have a polite conversation about how to end the war and make the world a better place. Along the way they make new friends, help people, fight bad guys, and fall in love.
Like I said, clever.
This is The Dark Lady / Demon King / Crimson Scholar. MMY is unique in that it is written like a play, but also in that almost none of the characters have names, but are rather referred to by their titles. The Dark Lady is a bit of an exception, in that she has multiple titles, but is also one of the few (if not the only) characters to have a name. As far as I know, it's only used once, but whatever.
The Nendoroid is pretty darn adorable. Maou comes with her horn/hairband, which is removable, just like in the series. Also, she has a Yuusha hug pillow, which might be the cutest thing in the history of things. She has a wide assortment of extra parts, including a kissy face to go with the hug pillow, which is so sweet it might invite the diabetes.
The price on this has gone up a bit recently, as it came out a while ago, but it's a good snag if you can find it cheap.
