* Link in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''. Even before he was [[{{Animorphism}} turned into a literal wolf]], he was incredibly defensive of Ilia and the kids of Ordon. The Bulbins should be thanking their lucky stars that he wasn't armed at the spring. (He got his revenge anyway when he [[CurbStompBattle massacred their entire camp]] at Arbiter's Grounds about halfway through the game, though.) He also is shown, especially toward the end, to be incredibly protective of Princess Zelda and Midna. When the Bulbin warlord uses Colin as a war flag, Link [[FoeTossingCharge crashes through]] the Bulbin cavalry, beats the warlord [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown out of his armor]], and then throws him [[GravityIsAHarshMistress off a bridge]].
** Rusl, from the same game, is like this too. About his own son Colin; about the other children in the village (their abduction gets ''him'' into the war as well as Link); and about Link himself, who WordOfGod states he regards as his younger brother.
** Just ''' ''try'' ''' and harm Zelda in Skyward Sword

** Just ''' ''try'' ''' Teba in ''VideooGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is a [[BirdPeople Rito]] archer who planned to fly up and harm Zelda in Skyward Swordattack [[HumongousMecha Divine Beast Vah Medoh]] all by himself to protect his wife Saki, his son Tulin, and the rest of his village, only letting Link help him out after seeing how good of an archer the latter was. He also plans to train Tulin to be an archer.

** Although it's widely believed that ''Belmont's Revenge'' is what happens when {{Konami}} learns their mistake from their extreme NintendoHard-ness of ''Adventure'', it kinda shows off that when his son is in danger, Christopher DOES NOT lose his whip's power at one measly hit (a problem plaguing ''Adventure''), except by one type of enemy. Papa Wolf to the max indeed.

* In ''VideoGame/StreetFighterXTekken'', [[BadAss Sagat]] is ''pissed off'' when a young boy from a Thai village tells him that his little sister, a girl that Sagat once rescued, has disappeared again. Then, Dhalsim appears in front of him and tells him that several children from his village have also vanished. The two fighters go into full PapaWolf mode, so they decide to team up to both rescue the abducted children and go to the Antartica, where [[MacGuffin the Pandora box]] is located.

* Whether as a display of political power or a general Jerkass move, do not declare any intent of executing [[GoldenSunDarkDawn Eoleo]]. [[{{Pirate}} Briggs]] may back off if things get sour, but he will come at you, again and again, to get his boy back. So tenacious, does he become, that you'd have to kill him to stay his wrath. [[spoiler:[[TearJerker Sadly, he went out fighting after all]].]]

* ShadowTheHedgehog. Just try and [[BerserkButton devastate the world he promised to protect]]. You're going to end up [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge a black mark on the floor]]. Even if you're a PhysicalGod, [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu demigod]], or what have you.

* ''SplinterCell'''s Sam Fisher. When he learns that [[spoiler:his daughter, Sara, isn't actually dead and was removed from him to send him undercover into a terrorist organization,]] he goes batshit insane. He no longer chokes people unconscious, preferring to leave a trail of bodies behind him, and the black humor and psychological mindgames he used to use in his interrogations is now gone; he prefers the JackBauerInterrogationTechnique.

* [[RyuGaGotoku Kazuma Kiryuu]] may be a {{yakuza}}, but he's usually a pretty nice and helpful guy. But if you mess with his adoptive daughter Haruka or the orphans he's taking care of... [[BerserkButton oh boy]], [[CurbStompBattle you're in for a world of pain]]. In fact, he's kinda protective of every kid he meets.
