** It's played [[BreakTheCutie VERY straight]] with Gaara's parents: First, he was only conceived to imprison the [[SealedEvilInACan daemonic incarnation of sand]] in order to serve the expressed purpose of being a mindless tool. Hated and feared by all of the villagers, he grew up lonely, confused, and suicidal - his only loved one and confidant being his maternal uncle, Yashamaru. Then, when he was six years old, [[spoiler:Yashamaru attempts to kill him on orders from the Kazekage, Gaara's father.]] This is not, however, a matter of duty, as Yashamaru tells Gaara he could have refused the Kazekage. THEN, to pour salt in the poor kid's wounds, [[spoiler:Yashamaru tells Gaara that he has always hated him, and is unable to think of him as his nephew, that Gaara killed his mother/Yashamaru's older sister Karura due to DeathByChildbirth and that he is nothing more than a monster that should carry out the ambitions of Karura's hatred for her village. Oh, and that Karura never loved him.]] And evidently since then, the Kazekage has been sending assassins for his own son's head for seven years, from the time Gaara was six. And we all know how Gaara [[AxeCrazy turns out]]. He gets better, though.
** Then we learn that [[spoiler: the deal with Yashamaru and Karura was a ''lie''. Karura actually died blessing baby(!) Gaara and promising to love and protect him even from beyond the grave, and Yashamaru's own actions and words were a JerkAssFacade coming from the orders of the Kazekage.]] When did Gaara find out? As he [[spoiler: called out the Edo-Tensei-revived Kazekage out for all the shit that he pulled against him. His father acknowledges his horrible treatment of his son, and spends his last moments before being sealed apologizing to him and admitting that Gaara is a better Kazekage than him.]]

** Asuka's parents and stepparents deserve special mention.

But her father and future stepmother (who just happened to be the mother's treating doctor) really should have made sure that Asuka had some help to deal with being ignored rather than allowing unsupervised visits, which led to Asuka discovering her suicide alone and subsequently deciding to be emotionally self-sufficient at age six. And they ''really'' should have made sure she was out of earshot when they started having their affair.

* ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'': Almost everything wrong in Ranma's life can be traced back to the actions of his father, Genma. Juusenkyo? Genma's idea. A crippling fear of cats? Genma didn't bother reading the page mentioning how utterly stupid a particular training regime was. Getting Ukyou and Shampoo dead set on killing them? Both due to Genma's short-sighted greed and gluttony, though Ranma was somewhat to blame in the latter case. Plus pairing him up with a girl who will assault him or lash out at him for the pettiest misunderstandings, in an ArrangedMarriage. Even separating Ranma from his mother at toddler age, thus ensuring the boy would get very limited social and emotional development, was Genma's idea, because she would have made him "weak"... and let's not even go into the bit about the {{seppuku}} vow Ranma was made to take without knowing. He claims he did it all to make Ranma a peerless fighter and man among men, though.
** Ironically enough, he may be the less abusive parent compared to his wife, Nodoka. While Genma manipulates Ranma for his own personal gain, he still attempts to protect Ranma throughout his life. Nodoka, on the other hand, does love and care for Ranma, but is a CloudCuckooLander who is completely determined to carry out the {{seppuku}} contract she and Genma had Ranma sign when he was just a baby. Even though she wants to see her son and desperately want to see him, she will kill him if she doesn't find him manly. [[spoiler: After she discovers Ranma's a GenderBender and determines that his actions are still manly enough for the contract, she deems the curse isn't a failure in and of itself, but she is still perfectly willing to carry out the Seppeku ritual if she feels that his conduct isn't satisfactory]]... Yeah, Ranma's family is [[DysfunctionalFamily pretty screwed up.]]

** Ranma's family life is ''less'' messed-up compared to [[GenderBlenderName Konatsu]]'s, though. While his parents were loving towards him, they both died when Konatsu was young, [[CinderellaCircumstances leaving him in the care of his abusive stepmother and stepsisters, who treated him less like a family member and more like a slave]]. Small wonders, then, that he considers being in the care of Ukyo, who's not exactly generous towards him (her daily allowance to him was a paltry 5 yen, and that's before she found out Konatsu was a guy harboring a crush on her, which she then took advantage of by making him work double-time without pay), a ''heavenly'' upgrade.

When he believes that fame is hurting the career of Hyuuma, he becomes the coach of son's rival to cause his defeat. Is nearly an ArchnemesisDad to Hyuuma.
