* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', when Paya's conversations with Link turn to how she got her name, she reluctantly reveals that it comes from a papaya-shaped DistinguishingMark, but she's too embarrassed to say ''where'' exactly it is. Her [[RaisedByGrandparents grandmother]] Impa eventually reveals it's on her left buttock, leaving Paya mortified. It's actually a bit of an OutOfCharacterMoment for Impa; asking about the birthmark most times will lead Impa to gently lead Link away from the topic, and she only reveals where it is [[ShipperOnDeck after realizing how big of a crush Paya has on Link]].

** Rainbow Dash's parents are ''definitely'' this. They go out of their way to cheer her on for everything, up to and including ''hanging up a towel'' (Dash even lampshades the ridiculousness of that), and are [[LargeHam {{hammy}}]] enough to give [[AwesomeEgo Rainbow herself]] a run for her money.

They always have [[NoodleIncident a thousand and one stories about things their unfortunate offspring did when they were two years old]], and they always seem certain that everyone wants to hear about them. They're perfectly right about that, of course, just not for the reasons that they think -- the AlphaBitch and her ilk are just ''dying'' to hear humiliating childhood stories, because they'll be able to tease the poor protagonist about them for years to come. Sometimes, childhood stories aren't even necessary; the parents' mere behavior, presence or lifestyle are all it takes to turn a casual scene into something terribly awkward. Especially if [[WereStillRelevantDammit the parents are bent on proving how "hip" and "cool" they are]]. Older offspring whose parents are deeply embarrassing when their good friends are around just have to remember that FriendsAreChosenFamilyArent.

If the hero lets slip that he or she doesn't like their parent's behavior then the parents tend to be hurt. Due to the RuleOfDrama, the situation will be contrived for maximum hurt and the hero is likely to have to spend the rest of the episode trying to make amends, with the whole thing ending on AnAesop about not being ashamed of your parents and the parents gaining empathy for their child. Also, [[EmbarrassingOldPhoto Baby photos]], [[EmbarrassingMiddleName middle names]], and the HomemadeSweaterFromHell are a must.

* The Scotsman becomes this in the final season of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. Right before he and his daughters charge into battle as part of a larger army, he holds up everything to tell his daughters to cover themselves before they catch their death of cold. Every last one reacts as a typical embarrassed teenager.

** Subverted in ''Anime/DragonBallGT'': Vegeta's preteen daughter Bulla tells Vegeta "Dad, [[PornStache that mustache]] has got to go! It makes you look like a total geek!" and Vegeta is so horrified, either by the idea of looking like a geek or by the idea of his daughter not approving of him, that he immediately shaves the mustache off.
