* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Zoom's psychopathic tendencies are revealed to be rooted in him [[spoiler:witnessing his mother's murder by his father at roughly the same age when Barry lost his mother and then growing up in the foster system]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Brookside}}'', the Simpsons go to family therapy after discovering that their (fully blood-related siblings) children are in an incestuous relationship. The therapist ''tries'' to find something from their childhood that would explain it, but the trope is subverted - there really ''isn't'' anything. When the therapist refuses to admit defeat and keeps probing, the father becomes dangerously enraged and smashes up the place, thinking he's being accused of having molested his own children.

!!General Examples:
* Many an AlphaBitch will usually have one of these, its revelation sometimes causing them to [[LovableAlphaBitch change their ways]], sometimes [[JerkWithTheHeartOfAJerk not.]]
** Libby on ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'': In the ChainedHeat episode, Sabrina learns Libby's mother is a distracted snob who doesn't pay any attention to her.
** There are exceptions. Madison Sinclair from ''Series/VeronicaMars'' had great parents, and was still a horrible person. She's an outright InvertedTrope, being a (double) example of InTheBlood. Avoiding spoiler tags, Madison is ''exactly'' who her parents raised her to be... for the [[JediTruth correct values]] of those nouns and pronouns.

*** Ironically, Creator/HughLaurie actually ''does'' have parent issues because he felt they disliked him and expected too much from him; his father Ran in particular was a distinguished medical doctor (how's that for irony) and an [[OlympicGames Olympic]] rower who won gold in the 1948 Coxless Pairs. They also apparently disapproved of his wife. Read and see enough interviews with him and his low self-esteem issues become fairly obvious. This has not, on the other hand, stopped Laurie from being described as a "panda" by everyone who knows him.

* ''Film/TheChristmasThatAlmostWasnt'': The BigBad Prune never got the sailboat he asked for as a kid, and so decided to forget he ever was one.



* ''Series/{{90210}}'': This spin-off has Liam starting off as bad...so bad he's almost 'evil'. Then it's explained he had a jackass step-father. Dylan from the original series (mum's a hippie, dad's in jail) also works, and for some extent most flaws on most characters (Kelly's mum's a drunk, Steve's adopted, Gina grew up poor, David's the son of a serial cheater and a schizo...).

* ''Series/MadMen'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTHtI76bIAw&feature=related Peggy Olson doesn't like sports]], especially televised or on the radio, in "The Suitcase" she reveals her [[DisappearedDad father died from a heart attack]] while he was watching a football game [[BreakTheCutie in front of her at age 12]]. What makes it remarkable is that she hardly ever expressed her feelings about sports before.
