** Masaru: Beaten by and forced to collect alcohol and tobacco for his father.

** Masaru: Beaten by and forced to collect alcohol and tobacco for his father. He was beaten even harder when his father learned he stole these things because he saw it as embarrassing him when Masaru was caught by the police. Also treated like he was a creepy child because he tried to smile his way through his suffering.



** Nagisa: Treated as if raising him was a game for his parents. He was forced to study all day for up three or four days in a row to "level up," forced to take medicines and an IV to "restore HP." They also used "Items" (implied to be things like knives) to keep him in line. His father was also a teacher at Hope's Peak who used Nagisa as a test subject to see how much progress a talented child could make before they reached their breaking point.
** Monaca: Treated very coldly by her family. Her father and brother physically abused her to the point where they ended up confining her to a wheelchair. [[spoiler: Although she later reveals that she was just faking this.]]

point. He didn't seem to be meeting expectations either as it seemed his father wanted to look for a different test subject due to him being less exceptional than desired.

[[spoiler: Although she later reveals that she was just faking this.]]]] They were also rather neglectful and emotionally abusive towards her as well. They didn't keep track of what she was doing at all as long as she left them alone and her brother regarded her more like an alien or a parasite living in his house.

* All of the Warriors of Hope in ''VideoGame/AbsoluteDespairGirls'' had parents that abused them in one way or another. It's not hard to see why they [[SelfMadeOrphan killed them]].
** Masaru: Beaten by and forced to collect alcohol and tobacco for his father.
** Kotoko: Forced into child prostitution by her parents, with her mother going along with her as well, because they felt it would further her career as a child star. Her father, a dental surgeon who was cheating on his wife with his assistant, planned to sell Kotoko into the sex trafficking industry when she hit puberty.
** Jatarou: Emotionally abused and neglected, with his father wishing he would die so they could live a free life and his mother forcing him to wear a mask because she hated looking at him. Jatarou came to believe it was because he was terribly ugly, but it was actually because he was so beautiful that his mother felt like she had to put more effort into taking care of him.

* In a scene near the end of ''NoMoreHeroes'', it's revealed that [[spoiler:Travis' father]] constantly molested his sister. She eventually gets revenge by killing him, his wife, and attempting to kill his son. Although, having a sexually abusive father is quite possibly the most ''normal'' thing about her story...

* Many characters in ''Videogame/SeraphicBlue'' have extremely abusive parents who only see them as tools at best and nuisances for being born at worst. [[spoiler:Strangely, two of the BigBadDuumvirate, Leona and Joshua, avert this trope by unconditionally loving their daughter even after she mutates into a Lucifer while some of the other parents turned on their children for far less.]]

** [[BloodKnight Cait]] from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' can't remember a single time her parents actually decently to her.

* [[Franchise/GodOfWar Ares]], as revealed in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarAscension''. While not actively abusive, he conceived Orkos with Alecto with the sole intent of creating a perfect warrior to support his EvilPlan to overthrow Olympus, only to disown him when Orkos turned out to be a disappointment. Likewise, the Furies manipulated Orkos into aiding their work in punishing traitors and oathbreakers, only to imprison and presumably torture him when he [[DefectorFromDecadence turned on them to help Kratos]].

* ''SilentHill''. Let's count: Dahlia Gillespie, Leonard Wolf, Thomas Orosco, the unnamed Mrs. Orosco, Walter's parents, Helen Grady, Adam Shepherd, and those are just off the top of my head. There's been, what, one good parent in the series?

** In ''VideoGame/SilentHillHomecoming'', it's taken UpToEleven with ''the entire adult population of Shepherd's Hill'' being abusers of the worst kind. [[spoiler: All of them made at least one of their children into a torturous HumanSacrifice, a ritual that has been carried out by ''every generation since the town's founding'', in order to keep the malign occult forces of neighboring Silent Hill at bay. When you arrive during the events of the game, the ritual has failed and the most recent crop of murdered children have come back as monsters to seek revenge.]] Zigzagged with the protagonist's parents, who did emotionally abuse him, but failed to [[spoiler: sacrifice]] him the way their fellows did with their first-born. [[spoiler: And it's implied they only hesitated because his younger brother had accidentally drowned, meaning they'd have no "replacement" child after the protagonist's death.]]



* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGate the strongest contender for the title Most Abusive Parent in the Realms is Bhaal, the Lord of Murder. Bhaal, forseeing his own death, went out and fathered a countless number of children, storing a portion of his divine essence within each of them. Following his death, the priesthood of Bhaal took the children and their mothers to their temples, where he had commanded them to kill the children one by one to ensure his resurrection. To add further abuse to the equation, many if not most of the clergy doing the knifing were the mothers of the children being sacrificed.
