** Rumplestilskin's father, [[spoiler: Peter Pan]] [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned him twice.]] The first time, he left Rumple to go drinking at the pub when he [[ILied promised to be loooking for a job.]] The second time, he [[spoiler: traded Rumple for nearly-eternal youth.

* ''Series/WolfHall'' doesn't ''start'' with Thomas Cromwell being beaten by his father like the book does. When his wife Liz reads a letter from his sister saying how much Walter's changed and pointing out that their own children have never met him, though, Thomas' response is "let's keep it that way." He only returns after Liz and their daughters die because she thought he ought to, and then we get the flashback of young Tom being kicked so viciously he [[VomitIndiscretionShot throws up]]--during the conversation, which is not a happy reconciliation, Cromwell's gaze lingers on the spot where it happened.

* ''Series/NineteenTwo'': Throughout the English version of the series, via flashbacks and stories Ben tells, a good picture of his alcoholic father's neglect and emotional abuse is built. From driving his drunk father home at the age of eight to being left in a park for the day at the age of seven and more. This troper has not seen the French version to compare.

* In ''Series/StreetJustice'', the episode "Kid Stuff" has a woman fearing that her child, who she'd given up for adoption, is being abused by his adopted parents, a feeling strengthened by the fact that they've recently stopped her visitation rights and the observation by one of the child's teachers that the father inspires fear in all the kids. In the same episode, Adam recalls that he once had a case where he confronted and beat an abusive dad for hitting his son; unfortunately, while Adam was being arraigned in court on assault charges from that incident, the father killed the boy.

** One of the first episodes of season features the rape and murder of a three year old boy who's mother was a foster parent. It turns out, that the victem himself was a neglected child; his "biological Mother" was going to adopt him as a baby, but he was given back to his drug dealing true biological mother; the woman found his mom dead from an overdose and (illegally) took the baby to raise as her own. The dead child's older foster brother's were beat by their father, who also burned the younger of the two with cigarettes, and bounced around for months before their foster mom took them in. It's also eventually revealed that the man who raped and killed the victem (while one of his foster brothers was forced to watch) was the three brother's neighbors father, and it's heavily implied at the end that he sexually abused his own son as well.
** In the episode 'The Signs in The Silence', the team arrests a deaf and mute teenage girl after she is found drenched in blood and holding a knife. They initially believe that she ran away from home and then murdered a random man. It turns out, however, that she had been violently abused by her parents ever since she was three because of her disability's and behavior problems;she had been telling people about the abuse and attempting to run away for years but, seeing as how her parents appeared to be pillars of the community,no one ever believed her. (The man she murdered was her father's friend who abducted her and tied her up on her fathers orders, and she killed him accidentally while trying to protect herself.)In the end, it turns out they weren't really her parents; they kidnapped her from a good home when she was little, and began abusing her after discovering they were stuck with a special needs kid. Luckily, the team is able to reunite her with her loving biological parents.

* In MrRobot, Elliot's mother was a cruel, chain-smoking woman who was embittered by her husband's ignominious death and apparently took out her frustrations on her son. Elliot's dream in "m4ster-s1ave.aes" has [[spoiler: her putting out a cigarette on Darlene's arm as well as punching her out a few times, meaning that she was likely abusive to her daughter as well.]] Elliot doesn't see his father this way, though his UnreliableNarrator status, combined with the knowledge that his father once pushed him out of a window in a fit of anger, and the fact that [[spoiler: he manifests as a dangerous, manipulative [[FightClub Tyler Durden]] figure in Elliot's subconscious]] may cast some doubt.

** Actually, a fair number of the main characters have been victims of parents who were either physically or emotionally abusive. Benson's mother when was a drunk because she had been raped, resulting in Benson's birth;she emotionally abused her, neglected her, and once tried to kill her with a piece of glass during a drunken rampage. Amaro's father beat him and his mother horribly. Even though Amaro's mother eventually kicked him out, she and Amaro's younger sister remained close friends with him and gas-lighted all of the abuse, blaming Amaro for hating his father and blowing things out of proportion. While never explicitly stated, during a conversation with Amaro, Barba hints that his father was also abusive like Amaro's. Finn's ex-wife was raped by her own father as a child, resulting in her becoming pregnant. She blamed the child, Darius Parker,for what his father did to her, and beat him; Finn eventually supports her past actions, once he discovers them, and makes it clear that Darius is neither wanted nor considered a family member (which later comes back to bite them)Finn himself was neglectful, due to being gone all the time when he use to work Vice, and he eventually was divorced from his wife and estranged from his son, although they do make up and reconcile of friendly terms later on. Rollins's mother neglected her and her younger sister, and their dad was a dead-beat gambler. Her sister eventually becomes manipulative, wanting to ruin Rollins for being able to escape their family and become a cop, and tries to ruin her life by framing her for her own crime sprees. Despite knowing fully well that her youngest daughter was on the run (and that her crimes included rape,murder, drugging men, robbery, and fraud)Rollins's mother fully supports her crimes and blames Rollins for ruining their lives and being a failure.

* In ''Series/TheWestWing'', the only flashback about Jed Bartlet's past portrays his father as an emotionally, and sometimes physically, abusive parent toward the young Jed. In a battle with his subconscious, personified by the "ghost" of Mrs. Landingham, his father is described as "a prick who could never get over the fact that he wasn't as smart as his brothers". [[WordOfGod Sorkin says]] that Bartlet's tirade against God in the episode "Two Cathedrals" is directed just as much at his own father.
