** In ''Film/X2XMenUnited'', apparently William Strykerís son Jason blamed his parents for his "condition," so he used his [[MasterOfIllusion powers of illusion]] to torture them with nightmares and visions - leading to Stryker's wife killing herself with a power drill. Of course, given that Stryker's [[UnreliableNarrator not exactly the most reliable witness]], how much of this information is accurate is debatable at best. We see plainly that he himself hated the fact that his son was a mutant and was under the impression Xavier's school was for "curing" mutants.
** In ''Film/TheWolverine'', Shingen covered for his father robbing his own company to extend his own lifespan, only for Ichirō to leave everything to Mariko instead.
