*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Sathel has a tendency to [[MyBelovedSmother smother Tiza]] when the girl is preparing for dangerous missions, and in front of her teammates too. However, this is nothing to compared to what Retina does to stop the smothering; [[SickeningSweethearts kisses and bridal carries.]]

Children on TV live in terror of their parents ever getting a chance to interact with the other kids in school. This is for a very good reason--parents on TV seem to be on a quest to humiliate their children in front of their peers.

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.

* In a more sinister vein, [[AhMyGoddess Hild]] sometimes does this as part of her AffablyEvil shtick by acting overly affectionate with her daughter Urd. However she ''is'' the [[SatanicArchetype Daimakaicho]] so as often than not, its part of a (not necessarily evil) plot.

* "Just call us ComicStrip/{{Monroe}}'s mom and dad."
* Connie and Walt in the comic strip ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}'' both drive Jeremy crazy by doing this. There is no [[AnAesop Aesop]], though, and Jeremy drives Connie and Walt crazy in plenty of other ways, so it evens out.
** ''Zits'' also exaggerates the trope at times by making Jeremy embarrassed by his parents' innocuous actions:
--->'''Jeremy:''' My parents seem to be on a personal quest to humiliate me at every turn.\\
'''Walt:''' [pokes head into room] Hey, guys, how's it going?\\
'''Jeremy:''' I ''rest'' my ''case''!!
** Jeremy takes some extreme measures to avoid parental embarrassment, to the point where when his father was still driving him to school Jeremy got out to walk the rest of the way ''at the end of their driveway.''
** One Sunday strip had Jeremy and his friends swapping stories about their parents' embarrassing habits, such as Hector's dad going outside to get the paper in his underwear every morning. As they're talking, Connie and Walt come in wearing gaudy gardening outfits, with Connie saying "Jeremy, if you need us, we'll be out tending to the arugula, dressed like this in broad daylight." Cue Jeremy declaring "Checkmate," and his friends conceding defeat.
* A wonderful "Revenge of the Kid" occurred in ''ComicStrip/OnTheFastrack'' when Melody was showing Laurel's baby pictures to Bob. Melody excused herself briefly; Laurel followed her out, there was the sound effect of a flash bulb and a piercing scream, and Laurel came back to hand Bob a Polaroid photo with the words, "My mother on the throne." Cue another piercing scream from out-of-frame.



* The Hyuga family in ''FanFic/AGrowingAffection''. Hiashi has Hinata wanting to move out after he goes to both Tsunade and Naruto to try to get Naruto to stop training with her. After he defrosts, he is just as embarrassed when his own father does the same thing.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': King Cold is this to Frieza.
-->'''Trunks:''' If you want a Super Sayian, I can fill the part.\\
'''Frieza:''' Oh, you hear that, daddy? "I can fill the part". It's like a five-year-old trying to play police officer.\\
'''King Cold:''' Or how you play Pretty Pink Princess?\\
'''Frieza:''' Daddy! Not in front of the malcontent!\\
'''King Cold:''' But it's so cute when you do it!\\
'''Frieza:''' I haven't done that since I was eight-eight-eight-eight-my Quinceañera!

* The Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, and Creator/{{Disney}} animated films in general, have some examples:
** Roo thinks of his mother Kanga this way in ''Disney/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' and ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' (the 2011 movie).
** In a brief scene where he's cleaned by his mother, Sarabi for Simba in ''Disney/TheLionKing''.
** Aladar is horrifyingly embarrassed of his adoptive lemur parents once they go full-on FishOutOfWater in ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}''.
** Goofy in ''Disney/AGoofyMovie'' (and its sequel) is this to Max, and in ''WesternAnimation/MickeysTwiceUponAChristmas'' Max brings home his girlfriend Mona to meet Goofy only for his dad to embarrass him by doing such things as showing off a [[EmbarrassingOldPhoto huge baby picture]] of Max. See ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' for more examples.
** The Trolls are essentially a family of this to Kristoff in ''Disney's Disney/{{Frozen}}''. Especially when they meet Anna and start a sudden wedding for the two right when they first meet.
** ''{{Disney/Hercules}}'': Hercules's [[MuggleFosterParents foster parents]] fell into this trope when it was the day parents visited their children at Hercules' school. To their defense, Hercules would be disappointed anyway since he expected his birth parents to show up.

He was actually embarrassed by it, and then realized what an interesting dynamic it created. He incorporated that embarrassment into Necron's character, explaining why Necron was so impatient with Juliana.

* Jesus comes upon a crowd preparing to stone a young adulteress. He interrupts them, crying, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!" After a moment's silence, all of the townsfolk shamefacedly drift away. Satisfied, Jesus turns to leave, when suddenly a rock flies from behind him and hits the woman square in the jaw. She falls over, clutching her face, as Jesus spins around in surprise. "Mo-om," he groans. "You're embarrassing me!"
** A variation of this had the rock fall from sky, with Jesus rolling his eyes. "Daaaaad... I was trying to make a point!"

* ''Literature/AnansiBoys'' by Creator/NeilGaiman. The main character, 'Fat Charlie' Nancy, is convinced that he's got the most embarrassing dad on the face of the planet. He's probably right. One could rightfully consider his dad, Anansi, to be a literal GOD of embarrassment.
** The nickname "Fat Charlie" was bestowed on him by his dad, and just stuck all those years, even though he's not really that fat, because [[spoiler:Dad's a PhysicalGod whose penchant as TheNicknamer blends right into his power as a RealityWarper]].

She is very upset because he embarrassed her in front of a large part of the town's population in the process.

* In ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'', this is actually a plot point in one episode, where Steve pretends that Greg and Terry are his parents so he won't have to introduce his new girlfriend to Stan and Francine. His reasoning is that his father would either drive her away by saying or doing something stupid, and if not, then his mother's crappy food would kill her. It's further cemented when Klaus reveals that Stan keeps a pack of "inbred dinner wolves" in a trap-door under the kitchen floor to feed Francine's food to instead of eating it himself. Despite the silliness, it's still portrayed seriously, as these and other problems were all secrets the family had been keeping from each other instead of dealing with the problems.
* Linda is this to Louise in ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''. This is really just a matter of Linda either not recognizing or not caring that Louise isn't like other girls her age and doesn't care about things 9-year-old girls are stereotypically interested in, or even about getting to know other 9-year-old girls in general. The two biggest examples are when Linda drags Louise to an 8-hour new age mother-daughter seminar, and when Linda organizes a surprise slumber party for Louise without her permission, after Louise explicitly voiced her opposition to the concept. Bob can also be embarrassing at times, but this is usually when he playfully needles Louise about being a DaddysGirl, which she takes in stride because, to a certain extent, he's right.
