** Played Straight with Hiashi Hyuga towards his eldest daughter, [[ShrinkingViolet Hinata]]. It's a wonder that it hasn't affected her more, since he has been sparring against her ''since she was only three years old!'' The abuse that she suffered--being so constantly berated for [[NiceGirl her kind and gentle nature]] and [[LightIsGood natural compassion]]--led her to develop a severe inferiority complex, and she was [[ParentalAbandonment veritably disowned]] by her father and their entire clan, forcing her to live with [[ParentalSubstitute Kurenai]] for a while. Thanks to Naruto beating Neji for her at the Chunin Exams finals, Hiashi mellowed out, became supportive of her, and ended her renouncement, to which she finally returned to the Hyuga clan and household. By Part II, [[TookALevelInKindness Hiashi]] openly applauded Hinata for trying to fight Pain, acknowledged her growing strength, gave her a personal bodyguard, and allowed her to participate in the Fourth Shinobi World War. CharacterDevelopment, you do your work.

* Satsuki's mother Ragyo Kiryuin in ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is quite possibly the worst mom of recent anime and manga. She's quite emotionally abusive, but that's not the most horrible part about her-- she has NoSenseOfPersonalSpace when it comes to her daughter. As in, she ''[[ParentalIncest molests her repeatedly]]'', probably since she was 5 years old. [[spoiler:Up to and including groping her and "[[{{Squick}} purifying]]" her while she was naked and in a bath, and removing her ThongOfShielding (ItMakesSenseInContext) by touching her crotch. She also has no qualms about using physical abuse as well, delivering a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown to Satsuki that was probably the first bit of FamilyUnfriendlyViolence in the show.]] [[spoiler:Which isn't even getting into the fact that she saw Satsuki's newborn younger sister-- series protagonist Ryuko Matoi-- as little more than a lab rat, and simply dropped her down the garbage chute when the experiments seemingly failed. We say seemingly because said daughter actually survived, only to ([[BeatStillMyHeart literally]]) have her heart ripped out when Ragyo met her for the first time. And after that, she throws the battered Satsuki into a cage in a torture chamber and repeatedly spanks her in the worst way possible so that Satsuki can be a better LivingBattery for her planned superweapon. And after that, she ''brainwashes'' her other daughter with false memories, ''sews'' the superpowered uniform Satsuki wore onto her (ItMakesSenseInContext) and has a ''threesome'' with her to round it off, before sending her to fight and kill Satsuki and her companions.]]

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' has several of these, which are all of the WalkingSpoiler variety.
** [[spoiler: Historia Reiss]] was born to the mistress of a nobleman, who ''hated'' her child. She avoided the child, leaving her parents to raise the child and only spoke to the child ''twice'' during her life. The first time involving hitting the child and cursing her inability to simply kill [[ItIsDehumanizing it]] and the second time was a DyingDeclarationOfHate.
** [[spoiler: Grisha Yeager]]'s greatest regret was the mistreatment of his firstborn son, Zeke. Though he loved his son, his WellIntentionedExtremist ideals drove him to attempt to indoctrinate his son and use him as a tool for LaResistance. Zeke ended up turning on him, making him realize too late how badly he'd failed as a parent. [[spoiler: He ''tried'' to avoid repeating these mistakes with Eren, encouraging him to form his own ideas and pursue his own dreams]].
** '''All''' the Warriors parents are this to one degree or another, whether through direct mistreatment or allowing their children to be harmed by others. Annie's father subjected her to brutal TrainingFromHell from her earliest memories, forcing her to train to the point of exhaustion and physical injury. [[spoiler: Reiner's mother is shown to be emotionally manipulative and controlling, as opposed to physically cruel. A lifetime of indoctrination and lies convinced him becoming a Warrior would make him a hero, and allow them to reunite with his Marleyan father. In reality, his father wanted nothing to do with them and even suggests she's a WomanScorned using her son to get petty revenge. She's perfectly willing to sacrifice both her son ''and'' her niece, to achieve her personal goals]].

It's heavily implied however that he was once a very loving father, but the death of his wife and Lucy's mother Layla hardened his heart, [[spoiler:and the two do reconcile...albeit only after he dies during the seven-year TimeSkip that Lucy spent trapped in time, causing her to [[NeverGotToSayGoodbye burst into tears after reading his final letter to her and tearfully saying she loves him too]].]]

** Mayuri Kurotsuchi is horribly abusive towards his daughter/lieutenant Nemu, emotionally and physically. In their first major appearance, he's willing to sacrifice her life just to pin Uryuu long enough to kill him and when she lets go in reflex rather than die, he beats her to within an inch of her life.

The closest he's ever come to truly acknowledging her as his own [[spoiler:is when she unleashes the full extent of her power in fighting Sternritter C, Pernida Parnkgjas, and then [[LudicrousGibs gets exploded]], which causes Mayuri to have a minor VillainousBreakdown at the fact his "perfect" creation was capable of dying, though he does save her brain and implies he'll remake her again]].

** [[ShrinkingViolet Hinata Hyuga]] has shades of this regarding her father (it's a wonder it hasn't affected her more--her father was sparring against her ''when she was only three years old!''), what with being so constantly berated for [[NiceGirl her kind and gentle nature]] and [[LightIsGood natural compassion]] that she developed a severe inferiority complex and was veritably [[ParentalAbandonment disowned]] by her father and clan, leading her to live with [[ParentalSubstitute Kurenai]] for a while. Luckily, and probably thanks to Naruto, Hiashi mellowed out and became supportive towards his eldest daughter. By Part II, he believes she is as strong as her cousin Neji (in her own way, at least) and gives her a personal bodyguard. CharacterDevelopment, you do your work.
** 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.

* ''Manga/AneNaruMono'' (in English, "An Elder Sister") gives us emotionally abusive guardians for Yuu. Creeped out by the boy seeing and speaking with supernatural {{Youkai}}, they pass him from house to house. The worst talk about him behind his back but within earshot, while his uncle simply ignores him.
