* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'': {{Averted|Trope}} with John Winchester, who doesn't let his sons' welfare get in the way of his job. [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] in that Dean is not only Sam's older brother, but also his parent in many ways. Dean's already a BadAss, so '''[[BerserkButton don't mess with Sammy]]'''.
** Actually, John has frequently shown a reluctance to put his boys in danger and wasted one of the Colt's precious bullets to kill a vampire that was threatening Sammy. Even after he was dead, ''he climbed out of hell'' to kick Azazel's ass when he attacked the boys. If anything, John transforms from a BadAss to the incarnation of the Wrath of God when Dean or Sam are in trouble.
