** There's also the ''massive'' amounts of abuse in general, and ''specially'' child abuse/neglection, both physical and psychological. Most of the characters are able to escape or overcome it by the end of the series, but it's still horrifying, especially considering how well most of it is covered up. And it's made even worse when [[spoiler:the biggest of the abusers... turns out to have been [[TroubledAbuser one of the most abused victims]]. [[EvilIsPetty For a really selfish and petty reason, too]].]]

** The Chapel children. They were all the result of a group of women being given, without their knowledge, drugs that altered the development their unborn children. Not only that, but the parents are unable to properly care for their children because ''they're all afraid of them''. [[spoiler:Worse, though the children take on adult roles in the town they run, it becomes evident that the kids still need the love and support of their parents.]]

* ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica''. One girl has gone missing, another girl found dead, and their friend is very troubled by all that- but refuses any help from anyone. The mother of the latter is seen in the 11th episode, and doesn't cry because she tries to assure herself that the girl can probably handle the stress given enough time. Her mother must have felt powerless and desperate, seeing her once cheerful and gentle daughter grow so distant and detached.

** Kyubey is guilty of the crime of [[spoiler:HUMAN TRAFFICKING, and his exploitative recruitment methods are comparable to Child Porn. A ManipulativeBastard who uses the emotion and desperation of little girls in order to scam them into a DealWithTheDevil and force them in a dangerous job as enslaved prostitutes, er, "Magical Girls". Plus, being InvisibleToNormals means that those who contracts cant talk about him to anyone lest people think they're crazy.]]

** Goku falling ill and being completely helpless in the Android saga from an unknown virus and suffering incredible pain throughout it. His family and friends could do very little but watch and hope the medicine was working. All the while Goku is being hunted down by androids trying to kill him.

** In the movie ''[[Anime/DragonBallZBrolyTheLegendarySuperSaiyan Broly - the Legendary Super Saiyan]]'', Broly maniacally asked Goku how much he loved his son, implying Gohan would be his next target, [[PapaWolf Goku]] immediately ordered Gohan to run. But despite Goku's efforts, Broly almost manages to kill the unconscious Gohan, if not for the timely arrival of Piccolo.

** The Frieza saga has a good one. When Goku turns Super Saiyan and notices that Gohan is with him, he starts urging him to get off the planet, fearing that he may hurt (or even worse, kill him) when he finally succumbs to his UnstoppableRage against Frieza.

** Gohan gets his own when he grows up. After a traumatizing childhood where his mistakes have gotten people killed, [[Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods Battle of the Gods]] has him getting drunk and making a mistake that nearly gets his wife and daughter killed. He's ImmuneToBullets, but instead of catching them when he's shot at, he deflects them, only for the ricochet to hit Videl, who can be injured by bullets and who also happens to be, unbeknownst to Gohan, pregnant.

** Goku has some new moments of this when ''[[Anime/DragonballSuper Super]]'' rolls around. When Goku decides to spend a day babysitting his new granddaughter Pan, she ends up wandering off and Goku gets noticeably distressed when he can't find her - particularly because at the time he was temporarily stricken with a condition that rendered him incapable of controlling his ki and he couldn't even fly properly. Then during the Future Trunks saga, Goku goes [[UnstoppableRage berserk]] when he learns that Goku Black [[spoiler: stole his body and killed Chichi and Goten in another timeline]], and is still sore about the subject even once he calms down - which is pretty rare for Goku who almost never holds grudges.

** Some heroes have to deal with the possibility of leaving their children orphaned if they die in the line of duty, which is exactly what happened to Kouta when his parents were killed. For this reason, this is why [[Nana Shimura, All Might's predecessor]], gave away their child for adoption to a civilian family to keep their child from heartbreak and danger.

* ''Manga/MyHeroAcademia'' has a few:
** Todoroki's mother genuinely [[TroubledAbuser loves her son]] but in a moment of weakness, she couldn't control her insanity and attacked him, scarring his face.

** Izuku's mother crying and apologizing to her son for being quirkless. Being a quirkless person in this world is almost equal to being disabled. In Eastern countries (especially Japan or China), when a child is born disabled, the blame usually would fall on the mother. Later on, she saw her son willingly mutilating his own body for the sake of his dream on live television and she had to cope with Izuku being targeted by a villain in a public area when he was out with his friends.
