** Rosa herself was on the receiving end of this trope along with her older siblings, and their father, Kinzo, makes his disdain of his own children quite clear several times in the series. [[spoiler:And although he did genuinely love his illegitimate daughter Beatrice Ushiromiya, he deluded himself into thinking she was her mother and his beloved mistress reincarnated, leading to him [[ParentalIncest raping her and getting her pregnant]].]]

* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':
** Pearl Fey's mother, Morgan Fey, screwed up the little girl ''horribly''. To make a long story short, she essentially [[spoiler: tried to use Pearl as a receptacle for the spirit of Morgan's other daughter, a sociopath named Dahlia, who was supposed to kill Morgan's niece Maya as a way of catering to a childish, spiteful sibling rivalry.]] Standard procedure for [[BigScrewedUpFamily the Fey clan]].
** And now in Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2 we have [[spoiler: Sebastian's father Blaise who throws down the mental abuse on him. Now it's subverted at first in which Sebastian is unaffected by the words because he's used to it, but then later double subverted when [[BreaktheCutie his father outright tells him that everything he worked for from his grades to his awards was because his father had made personal connections to allow his son to make it to the top]]]]. By default he seems to really get along well with his son, always teasing him in a manner that is clearly affectionate and sometimes even making comments that lead Edgeworth to think he is a [[DotingParent doting dad]]. [[spoiler:Once Sebastian messes up with his plans, however, he is willing to call him every name to get him to follow his orders. This repressive attitude towards his son, combined with how he has been deceiving him (about his real grades and his fatherís crimes) for the entirety of his life makes Blaise not so conventionally "abusive", but more accurately he's being too ''controlling'' in a way that he does not take Sebastian's real well-being into consideration.]]
** Miles Edgeworth's adopted father, Manfred von Karma. The extent of his psychological abuse towards Miles is implied rather than stated, but seeing as he manages to turn Miles into the opposite of who his father was, some must have been involved. If that's not enough, letting Miles believe throughout his whole life that he had killed his biological father, and seeing him suffer from nightmares for fifteen years while [[spoiler:actually being the culprit]], has to count. He wasn't much better to his biological children, either; his daughter Franziska came out as an egomaniac AmoralAttorney, though [[DefrostingIceQueen she's gotten better since]].
* Matsuri, Aoba and Jun's parents in ''VisualNovel/FamilyProject''. Jun's are probably the worst. [[spoiler:Her father molested her and her sister since they were small children for years until a neighbor noticed and they got taken away. Their mother? Envious. So she starved them for days on end and then would feed them horrible things. Like flat out ''poison'' to Jun, which nearly killed her and prevents her from eating anything but snack bars and drinks.]]



* Jigoro Hakamichi, Shizune and Hideaki's father, of KatawaShoujo. He not only frequently insults his children, Shizune's friends and the student council, but also has refused to learn sign language to speak with his deaf daughter, and has tried for 12 years to get Shizune to learn how to speak, unwilling to accept that she is unable to do so.
* ''VisualNovel/KaraNoShoujo'' had Shinji's parents and Yaginuma's father.

* ''VisualNovel/NoThankYou'': One of the main cases in the game involves finding a little girl's missing mother. [[spoiler:It turns out her mom had left her to die.]] Another case has a young man asking you to find his brother and send him home [[spoiler:so that their mother might molest him less.]] Many of the main characters suffered abuse or neglect at the hands of their parents/parental figures, [[spoiler:most notably the protagonist who's forced into a life of murder, torture, rape, et cetera et cetera as a slave... until he's promoted (to doing all that stuff as a lackey) after winning his father's version of The Hunger Games)]].



* Grave from SymphonicRain who physically abuses his daughter [[spoiler: Lise]] just because her singing reminds him of [[spoiler: his wife who left him for a singer]].
* ''Franchise/AceAttorney'':

* ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has [[spoiler:Sakura Matou]], who has a very similar backstory to [[spoiler:Kohaku]]. While [[spoiler:Zouken subjects her "only" to TrainingFromHell and the Matou crest worms]], her stepbrother [[spoiler:Shinji]] rapes her repeteadly.
** Her adoptive uncle Kariya Matou was a victim of the same sort of [[spoiler:TrainingFromHell via the crest worms, partially because patriarch of the Matou family Zouken liked to watch him suffer.]]
** The twisted part is that Zouken's treatment of [[spoiler:Sakura]] is a sign of ''favoritism'' because it's meant to [[spoiler:nurture her magical potential]]. The only reason he doesn't subject [[spoiler:Shinji]] to it is because the latter lacks that potential and thus isn't worth the effort -- and [[spoiler:Shinji]] is painfully aware of this. Hence his treatment of [[spoiler:Sakura (not that it justifies it in any way whatsoever).]]

* While really more of an Abusive Uncle, Teppei Hojo from ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' definitely fits this trope. He beats Satoko and forces her to do chores for him, threatening to burn down her beloved brother's room if she doesn't comply. [[spoiler:It's revealed later on that he's also a pimp, and is engaged in a fraud scheme with one of his working girls (Rina Mamiya) to scam half a million yen out of Rena's father.]] Teppei's fate changes in each of the three arcs he appears in, and none of them are pretty. He is [[spoiler:murdered by Keiichi in Tatarigoroshi-hen]]; [[spoiler:murdered by Rena in Tsumihoroboshi-hen]]; [[spoiler:murdered by Rena, Keiichi, and Shion (all together) in Tsukiotoshi-hen]]; and [[spoiler:arrested by Child Services in Minagoroshi-hen.]]

* Ah, ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'', what form of angst don't you have. One of the characters is [[spoiler:the seemingly cheerful and carefree maid Kohaku]]. Spending her childhood locked in a room and being raped ''daily'' by her master, [[spoiler:Shiki's adoptive father Makihisa Tohno]], ''and'' doing so to [[spoiler:protect her twin sister Hisui from being raped as well]], made her a literal EmotionlessGirl: she put on on a [[StepfordSmiler horrible cheery mask]] to hide her (lack of) feelings ([[spoiler:while Hisui became a melancholic ShrinkingViolet who feigned emotionlessness to not perturb her further]]), and in some routes of the game, she [[spoiler:plots to kill every member of the Tohno Family as revenge]].
** Some? Just because you never see the effects in the other routes doesn't mean she wasn't doing it. As a VN, it makes the most sense to assume that everything's exactly the same in all the routes except for those things which are changed by the player's choices.
*** Things ''aren't'' exactly the same in all the routes, though. The Near Side and Far Side routes seem to be almost completely separate, as shown by the differences displayed by SHIKI. [[spoiler:In the Near Side routes he is the vampire Roa reincarnated and does not seem to have a psychic link with Shiki, where in the Far Side routes he is evil/crazy because of the Tohno [[InTheBlood inversion impulse]] and has a mind link with Shiki. He looks completely different in the two scenarios.]]
* Also, ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' has [[spoiler:Sakura Matou]], who has a very similar backstory to [[spoiler:Kohaku]]. While [[spoiler:Zouken subjects her "only" to TrainingFromHell and the Matou crest worms]], her stepbrother [[spoiler:Shinji]] rapes her repeteadly.
