* PlayedForLaughs in ''Manga/OnePiece'' with [[spoiler: Monkey D. Garp]] and Luffy. The former used many tricks to strengthen his grandson, including tossing him into a bottomless ravine, leaving him in the jungle at night and tying balloons to him to make him fly. It's also clear that [[spoiler: Garp]] sincerely cared for Luffy and [[ToughLove wanted to toughen him up]]
** Vinsmoke Judge, on the other hand, is NOT in the least played for laughs in regards of his horrible treatment of his son, [[spoiler: Sanji]]. Hating his son's empathy and compassion and the fact that he [[spoiler: is still a normal human after Judge's genetic experiments on his children]], he encourages his other children to beat him down (with only his daughter being reluctant to do so), and then eventually, locks him in a cell. Years later, Judge kidnaps him from his new life to use him as nothing more then a bargaining chip for his schemes of power with Big Mom. [[spoiler: Sanji]] emphatically tells Judge he utterly hates him and does not consider him to be his father, the feeling of which is mutual.
** Charlotte Linlin aka Big Mom has ''many'' children, but not only she encourages their worst traits, recruits them in their crew and/or forces them in {{arranged marriage}}s (even if some of them [[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage have worked well]]), if they ever try defying her, she will treat them as absolute crap. i.e. she killed her son Moscato when he tried to stop her when in the middle of a hunger-induced UnstoppableRage, and [[spoiler: beated the Hell outta her daughter Chiffon for looking too much like her sister Lola, the only of her kids who openly defied her.]]

* In the anime adaption of Ouran High School Host Club, Kyouya's father is introduced - via a flashback - as someone who has very high expectations of him. I could go on and on about the analysis and coding of the short scenes he has before his appearance in episode 25, but what stood out the most was Yoshio [[spoiler: slapping his son in front of the host club, their customers, and the customers' parents. This causes quite a stir, especially as it was hard enough to knock Kyouya to his knees, after his glasses. It's also heavily implied that it isn't the first time Yoshio has hit Kyouya - Yoshio's brief interaction with Tamaki's father, as well as how Kyouya brushed away the concerns of the host club, is pretty sttong evidence of that fact.]]

** Don't forget Kallen, whose stepmother mistreats her and neglects her on a daily basis and her father, who married a rich woman simply because his previous wife was Japanese and she was 'filthy', makes a point to never been seen in public with her. Her stepmother yells at her mother all the time, too.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'':
** Kogoro Mouri is an irresponsible gambler who spends much of his time drinking, while his teenage daughter Ran takes care of most of the housework. He also has a tendency to yell at Ran and Conan and, in the latter's case, give smacks to the head for getting in the way. Of course, when either of them are in danger, [[PapaWolf he steps in to save the day]].
** While both of Shinichi's parents love their son, they both have no qualms about leaving their teenage boy to look after himself for years on end, while they take a trip to America. [[spoiler:Upon finding out that he was shrunk into the body of a child, they choose to make their re-appearance by pretending to be Black Organization members and staging a kidnapping of him, just to [[ScareEmStraight scare him into understanding the situation he's in]].]] Shinichi himself is well aware that they're far too irresponsible to be proper parents and thus feels no guilt about doing things like telling his dad's editor where he's hiding while skipping deadlines, or using their credit cards to pay for expensive dinners.



** This is implied to have been part of Riza Hawkeye's backstory; she tells Roy Mustang in a flashback that her father was "a terrifying man." The exact nature of his abuses are not made clear, but one thing is known for sure: [[spoiler:he used her as the HumanNotepad for his research on flame alchemy]] when she was younger than eighteen.
** All three of Hohenheim's kids in the first ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' anime. [[spoiler:Envy]] definitely takes the cake, as while Ed and Al had Hohenheim merely pull a ParentalAbandonment and were left with a very loving mother, [[spoiler:Envy was stuck with his mother [[BigBad Dante]], who only cared about herself and treated Envy as a tool.]]

** Dio Brando's father was a deadbeat alcoholic who emotionally abused his wife and son (along with implied physical abuse). Dio ends up [[SelfMadeOrphan killing his father]] and later becomes one of the most evil bastards in all of anime/manga.

** Professor Gennosuke Yumi also counts. Along the series he quite neglected Sayaka. It was obvious his family was less important to him than his career, and often he was absent when her daughter needed him. Likewise, his niece Yuri is a conceited, cranky, brat, and he explains that is cause her parents never have time for her.



* Al Da Flaga from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'' was a narcissistic bastard who viewed his son, Mu La Flaga, as nothing more than a vehicle for his own ego. When Mu refused to nothing more than an extension of his father, Al cut him out of his life, locked him and his mother up in a BigFancyHouse, and had himself cloned. He then proceeded to treat said clone as though he were a replacement for Al himself rather than a real person (his first words on seeing the clone were "This is me, right?"). Said clone eventually rebelled, murdered Al by burned down his house, and became [[spoiler:[[OmnicidalManiac Rau Le Creuset]]]].

** Asuka's parents and stepparents deserve special mention. Her mother's abuse was a result of her being completely insane and not recognizing Asuka as her daughter at all. But her father and future stepmother (who just happened to be the mother's nurse) really should have made sure that Asuka had some help to deal with being emotionally abused 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.

[[spoiler: Her father killed her entire family and made her watch after he learned that his followers to his church were only coming because Kyuubey compelled them to by Kyouko's wish, and not from actual interest. The only reason she lived was because as a Magical Girl, she was technically already ''dead'' and could not be killed in normal fashion.]]

* In ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', parental trouble shows up often. Ami's mother is a well-meaning but workaholic doctor and her father is a wandering artist who never sees her. Rei's mother is dead and her father ignores her in favor of his career, to the point of missing her birthday dinners; at least Rei has her grandfather, but in the first anime, despite his good intentions, he's a pervert. Hotaru's mother is dead and her father is either possessed or possessed ''and'' crazy (depending on the canon) and, in the anime, he lets his assistant Kaorinite psychologically abuse the girl. Chibi-Usa thinks of herself as neglected, and Wiseman exploits this to implant FalseMemories of abuse, which is the pull he needs to turn Chibi-Usa into Black Lady.

* In the manga ''Manga/SatouKashiNoDanganWaUchinukenai'', self-proclaimed mermaid Umino's [[{{Jerkass}} rockstar father]] clearly fits into the emotionally abusive category, often shouting at his teenaged daughter and once leaving her behind in a grocery store parking lot simply because a defective shopping cart made him angry.

* In ''Anime/SpeedGrapher'', woobie heroine Kagura experiences a number of forms of abuse. Her mother, Shinzen underfeeds and generally mistreats her, is cruelly insulting, and is shown slapping her on a couple of occasions, since she has hated Kagura almost from birth because [[spoiler:Shinzen's doctor and husband/Kagura's father ran out on them when Shinzen was still pregnant]]. Also, Suitengu having Kagura be the "goddess" at his club, with Shinzen's approval, is pretty damned close to sexual abuse, given that her role is to kiss a bunch of creepy perverts.

* General Cross from ''Manga/DGrayMan'' raised Allen Walker and sort of acted as a surrogate father, but it is implied and shown that he heavily abuses Allen (though it's usually [[ComedicSociopathy shown comedically]]). When Allen was young, Cross would frequently gamble and get into debt, leaving young Allen to deal with the debt collectors (which is the contributing reason to why Allen became so good at cheating in cards). Hoshino even has a picture on her Insta where young Allen sits on Cross' lap, and Cross bribes him with cake to gamble. He also left the poor kid to hunt down the Black Order headquarters by himself with no clues to go on, knocking Allen out so he could avoid reporting in. Even though it's [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood played for laughs]], Cross's behavior spans emotional, physical, and financial abuse, with a side order of abandonment. [[TheWoobie Poor Allen]].

** Vegeta spends most of the Android / Cell arc being a condescending ass to Future Trunks - it's not too hard to find clips of him hitting his own son.
