* The regul from Creator/CJCherryh's ''Faded Sun Trilogy'' treat all children as expendable slaves; the survival rate to adulthood is less than one in a hundred, and most pre-adult regul are killed, often quite casually, by adults of their own kind.

** The Doctor has stated that Gallifreyan children are shipped off to the academy at age eight, and forced to look into an untempered time vortex. This is what reputedly created the Doctor's evil foil, the Master.

Master. The only alternative to this appears to be military service, an article that suggests that idea the young Doctor liked even less. The Master himself, while privileged even among Time Lords' entire civilization is Lords, had this to the Doctor.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}: r-selecting species with lethal rights of passage seem common.
** The Continuum reproduce asexually and rapidly if they want to, and treat their progeny as cannon fodder with nothing but a number to identify them. One in thousands survives the heat of battle and becomes a Maker.
** Tesskans abandon their offspring to the wild, eventually allowing the survivors to rejoin the pack when they gang up on and kill the pack's oldest member.
** The Astina have hundreds of pups and then require them to prove their worth to their family. As seen when Orla catches a pup stealing and for getting caught his father kills him with his bare hands.

* One issue of Justice League Adventures (No. 24, "Alien Like Me") involved a kid who, as it turned out, was an alien, [[HappilyAdopted raised by human parents]] after his EnergyBeings parents [[ParentalAbandonment dump him on Earth]]. Then one day [[PubertySuperpower his true form begins showing]] and he [[GrowingUpSucks accidentally blows up his parents.]] And only ''then'' do his alien parents come back for him. Needless to say, the kid was ''not'' happy. [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted though, as the aliens are shown to love their kid, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality in their own weird way,]] and the issue ends on an [[AmbiguousEnding ambiguously happy note,]] with either his human parents [[BackFromTheDead raised by alien energies,]] his alien parents [[MeatPuppet choosing to raise him as humans,]] [[MindScrew or]] [[WillingChanneler something else entirely.]] ]]

** Gamzee's lusus isn't so much an Abusive Alien Parent as a neglectful one - it has spent basically his whole life doing other things (it's never mentioned what, exactly), so he's never learned not to sit on his ass [[TheStoner eating sopor slime pies all day]].

** Even split on Kif's species; they go though a period as a tadpole, swimming unsupervised in a primordial swamp, and then are implied to have a childhood where they are raised by their parents in a family environment ten years later, conveniently allowing Kif and Amy to delay settling down by another decade.
