Aunty Entity, played by Tina Turner, was a ruthless ruler of a post-apocalyptic civilization known as Bartertown in the Australian film Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.

Aunty claimed that before the pox-eclipse she was a nobody, but the day after, she had the chance to become a somebody, for she was one that survived.

She was an Amazon-like woman who ruled with an iron-fist but found herself being challenged by the diminutive Master and his brutish henchman Blaster: Aunty Entity is enraged at this but is unable to publicly oppose the duo of "Master Blaster" due to Master being the only one who knows how to work all the machines that keep Bartertown running.

To this end the scheming Aunty Entity manipulates Mad Max into a gladiatorial battle (known as the "Thunderdome") against Blaster with hopes Max will kill him, in effect using Max as a convenient means of exacting political assassination without being caught.
