* Heather Dale's "Mordred's Lullabye" focuses around EvilMatriarch [[ArthurianLegend Morgana Le Fay]]'s attempts at turning her son, Mordred, into one of these. She reminds him that his father (her brother!) is a thief and a traitor who has taken what is rightfully theirs, and that he, Mordred, is to die gaining them their revenge.

* Liquid Snake/[[spoiler:Eli]] from ''MetalGearSolid'' has wanted to kill his "father" Big Boss since he was a kid, since he blames Big Boss for his "inferior" genes (or at least what he was led to believe were). He holds a grudge against his brother Solid Snake for being the clone with (what he thought were) Big Boss's "superior" genes, as well as being the one who killed Big Boss before he could.
** In addition, Big Boss was an ArchnemesisDad to Solid Snake, who he sent on a suicide mission in the original ''MetalGear'' [[spoiler:where he had expected and planned for his BodyDouble, Venom Snake, to kill him]], and fought to the death in ''MetalGear2''.

* In both ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' movies the titular monsters, or at least the first batch of them, are technically Gizmo's progeny, budded off when he gets wet. Who then decide to eat something after midnight and transform.

Some children just don't see eye to eye with their parents. They may argue with them, flout their authority, or pretend they don't exist. This character, however, goes that extra mile. They're not only on a different page from their mom or dad, but a different side morally as well--and since the parent in question is at least nominally heroic, there is no way this is going to end well. Mom or dad might be a force for good, but their child is not, and is willing to let them know it. They're not {{Self Made Orphan}}s, but if they get their way, they will be soon.

* 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. Instead, he turned them over to the SecretPolice and helped destroy their resistance group. Even as an adult, he's still incredibly resentful towards his father and considers his younger brother, [[spoiler: Eren Yeager]] to be another victim of their father.



* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has the [[HalfHumanHybrid One-Eyed Owl]] and their father, BigGood Yoshimura. While he loves his child dearly and has devoted his life to protecting them, his child considers him a coward that abandoned them to a horrible life. When the two are finally reunited, [[spoiler: Eto gleefully hands her dear daddy over to [[MadScientist Dr. Kanou]] as a "donor" for his research]]. More than one person calls them out on this particularly cruel action.

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'': Lilith, the First Monster and adoptive mother to most of the city, describes Malcanthet the Succubus Queen as her "foulest daughter." Malcanthet, in turn, hates her mother, and even had her raped and tortured at one point. Malcanthet has noticeably [[BioAugmentation modified herself]] to look quite a bit like Lilith, however, and [[spoiler:she cries in Lilith's arms when she's defeated. Malcanthet then sets them both on fire, killing herself but leaving Lilith alive]].
