* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', [[spoiler: Zeke Yeager]]'s parents tried to use him as a tool to overthrow the government, while he was still a small child.

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has the [[HalfHumanHybrid One-Eyed Owl]] and their father, BigGood Yoshimura.

More than one person calls them out on this particularly cruel action.

* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': courtesy of a kidnapping by [[HeWhoFightsMonsters murderous]] [[VanHelsingHateCrimes vampire]] [[TheHunter hunter]] [[DiscOneFinalBoss Holtz]] and a subsequent stay in the hellish dimension of Quor-Toth, Angel's son Connor goes from baby to emotionally-stunted, angry [[TeensAreMonsters eighteen year old]] in the space of a few weeks, and carries a correspondingly huge grudge against his father, whom he blames for his situation and Holtz's murder ([[ThanatosGambit actually a frame job/suicide]]). He tries to kill Angel several times, even going so far as to trap the vampire in a steel box and sink him to the bottom of the ocean. He eventually pulls a HeelFaceTurn, but it's not until he's had his memories wiped (at Angel's request) that he is able to let go of his anger and find something approaching a normal life.

Son of Grom Hellscream, who grabbed the VillainBall and doomed the entire Orc race to be bound to demons, but later made up for it, Garrosh had one hell of a nasty legacy to live up to.
