** In one episode Peter and Lois become abusive [[StageMom stage parents]] to Stewie after he stars in a peanut butter commercial and do things like yell at him when he doesn't get a part, force him to practice dancing at 3 in the morning, giving him cocaine, threatening to take away his toys, telling Chris he's no longer their favorite son and letting a coyote maul him, and making Stewie become anorexic. Keep in mind he's around 2 years old. Brian was the only person calling them out on all this, and [[HypocriteHasAPoint as previously mentioned he isn't exactly the best father himself.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Arguably, the best thing [[{{Satan}} Trigon]] ever did for his daughter was staying out of her life for as long as he did, and while he never actually lays a finger on her, he is GenreSavvy enough to threaten her friends instead. Thus, [[spoiler:Raven's]] dad convinces her to essentially commit suicide in a ritual that will let him break out of his prison dimension and [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt turn the planet into slag and lava]]. [[spoiler:It works. For [[StatusQuoIsGod a staggering three]] episodes, even!]]

** His mother is no better, disparaging every attempt he's made at becoming famous [[StageMom despite pushing him down that career path to start with]], and even berated him for having "ruined" her while he was still a child. Best summarized when she invoked the RadishCure after catching him smoking.

* The titular ''WesternAnimation/BojackHorseman'''s parents were victims of a ShotgunWedding and UnequalPairing, turning them into {{Resentful Guardian}}s in the process. Neither of them were shy about arguing ([[AwfulWeddedLife loudly]]) within earshot of their pre-teen son, either.

*** Bart once had a near-death experience, where he got to see a vision Abe's father strangling him; suggesting a cycle of abuse. If [[FlashForward future episodes]] are any indication, Bart has broken the cycle (though he's still not an impressive dad).

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' plays this UpToEleven in its first episode of the fifth season. Septuplet girls are born into a cult honoring [[BigBad Aku]], and their mother (the cult's high priestess) puts them through TrainingFromHell. This includes forcing them to bathe in hot coals and making them fight larger cultists who have no qualms in [[WouldHurtAChild harming young girls]]. Their leader, Ashi, even gets punished by their mother [[DisproportionateRetribution just for looking out into the outside world]]. In another training exercise with rock spires, the high priestess tells one daughter to not help Ashi while she's hanging from a ledge while [[HandStomp crushing her hand with her staff]] because [[TheSocialDarwinist there is no room for weakness in Aku's cult]]. By the time they're older, they've become merciless assassins, trained to the strictest level by their mother.
** [[spoiler:[[BigBad Aku]] also counts as he ends up being revealed to be Ashi's father as she was born with the same materials as him. He uses her for his own whim to beat Jack and didn't care about all the abuse Ashi had through the High Priestess]].
