* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' book ''Discworld/TheTruth'', [[IntrepidReporter William de Worde]] finds out that the plot against Lord Vetinari was masterminded by his father, Lord de Worde, when a [[{{Magitek}} Dis-organizer]] kept by one of the hired thugs repeats the phrase "A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on," which de Worde was known for saying. Even before being revealed as the plotter, Lord de Worde was described as a nasty piece of work who'd treated William horribly (especially after Rupert, the older son, died, because Lord de Worde saw William as a SpareToTheThrone and William had other ideas.)

* ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfAncientDarkness'': In ''Outcast'', the fourth part of the series, it's revealed that [[FemmeFatale Seshru]] the Viper Mage is Renn's mother. Seshru had originally impregnated herself with Renn only so that she could make her newborn her personal [[DemonicPossession tokoroth]], failing only thanks to Saeunn's interference. Seshru wasn't afterwards interested in Renn, who in turn knew of her bloodline since her father's death and refused to study Magecraft due to her mother's legacy as a Soul Eater. It's not before ''Outcast'' that Seshru realizes their connection, but she merely sees it as a tool to drive a wedge between Renn and Torak.

** The original Brainiac has, at various points, tried to manipulate, control, or kill his clone son, Brainiac 2, his grandson, Brainiac 3, and his great-great grandson, Brainiac 5. Brainiacs 2 & 3 have also made numerous attempts to kill one another, proving this trope is more or less InTheBlood.

* This happens to Tiltyu and Lex in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'', since their fathers Leptor and Langobalt are members of a conspiracy led by [[spoiler:Alvis. Or better said, by Manfloy from the Lopto Sect]].
** Played for laughs with Nohrian knight Arthur and his son Percy in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Percy's so mad at Arthur for not visiting him in the Deeprealms more often that he ''sics a pack of bandits on him'' after claiming Arthur's an aggressor. Percy himself is the boss of that battle. Thankfully everything is cleared up after he's defeated; he apologizes to his dad for attacking him, while Arthur makes amends for his absence by taking Percy along with the party when they leave.

** Toyed with in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': [[spoiler: The Avatar of this game is the son or daughter of the BigBad Hydra/Anankos... but more exactly, the child of his ''sane'' side, which was given a human form for some time and loved the Avatar and his/her mother Mikoto enough to summon people ''from other universes'' to protect them. Doesn't stop the proper Anankos/Hydra from being the BigBad of the game and a ''terrible'' dad to the Avatar]].

*** Played for laughs with Nohrian knight Arthur and his son Percy in the same game. Percy's so mad at Arthur for not visiting him in the Deeprealms more often that he ''sics a pack of bandits on him'' after claiming Arthur's an aggressor. Percy himself is the boss of that battle. Thankfully everything is cleared up after he's defeated; he apologizes to his dad for attacking him, while Arthur makes amends for his absence by taking Percy along with the party when they leave.
*** Then played seriously again in the ''Heirs of Fate'' DLC; if one assumes the protagonist Shigure to be the male Avatar's son, [[spoiler:Anankos will be his Archnemesis ''Grand''dad.]]

* ComicBook/LadyDeath's father is not exactly Father of the Year material, serving as a recurring antagonist and being more or less responsible for her current condition. A corrupt FeudalOverlord who oppressed his peasants, forcing them to fight in the Crusades all while secretly practicing black magic and worshiping demons, as well as having sacrificed his wife (Lady Death's mother) many years ago. When his people rose in rebellion against him, he summoned demons to take him to Hell leaving his daughter behind to be burned at the stake. He would wage war against {{Satan}} in control for Hell and clash with Lady Death many times. He is less of this trope in the Avatar continuity, that has follows the same backstory, but places him in a positive light, being an loving father and husband. [[spoiler: And its revealed that he was under a demon's possession, therefore not responsible for his actions.]]

When Sanji has his first confrontation with him in the present storyline, he tries to hold out some hope that his family has changed for the better, but when forced to face Judge in battle, he admits to himself that his father has never given him a single decent memory and that he only feels hatred towards him]].

** At "End of Evangelion" Gendo finally reveals he abandoned Shinji because he was frightened of his own son, was convinced that he would screw Shinji if he tried to raise him, and he did not want to get him involved with his and SEELE war. Unfortunately, for that time it is doubtful Shinji cared for his reasons.

* In ''Series/{{Noob}}'' Tenshirock, the hacker that keeps breaking into the MMORPG in which the story is set, turns out to be this to Judge Dead, the MMORPG in question's head Game Master. Tenshirock did this because his son had started hating him for reason he couldn't understand and thought that getting his son's attention away from the game would make him more open to his attempts to rebuild their relationship.
