* As it turns out, The Daughters of Aku from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' are ''literally'' the daughters that Aku, spawned from the black essence that the High Priestess drank including Ashi herself. This unfortunately allowed Aku to brainwash her against Jack and allowing the latter to surrender in defeat, unwilling to harm the woman he loves.

* In the 1970s, Marvel comics created a character named Shang-Chi, whose father just so happened to be the evil Dr. FuManchu (although they can't actually call him that due to copyright reasons).

* Maternal example in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', where Ashi eventually regards her mother this way, [[spoiler: the enmity concluding with a battle to the death where Ashi slays her.]] She might also regard Aku as such, symbolically, seeing as she was raised as one of the [[ReligionOfEvil Daughters of Aku]].

* David Cain in ''[[FanFic/AngelOfTheBat Angel of the Bat: Times of Heresy]]'' is a downplayed example, more mellow than his pre-Flashpoint iteration. As a cold-blooded killer he is put at odds with his heroic daughter, but still isn't interested in killing her and even makes a few smarmy comments about her religious conversion. Cassie herself notes in both stories she wants to be strong enough to forgive him, but isn't sure she can. The two do form an EnemyMine when attacked by the true villains.

** Lois tended to have issues with her own father post-Crisis (the elder Lane was a bitter man who would have preferred a son to a daughter, and rarely had a nice word for Superman, believing such beings to be "rabid dogs") but it during Lex Luthor's presidency (where Lex was ''not'' fond of the media, which Lois was part of) his displeasure turned outright evil, making threats against his daughter and having her arrested to maintain Luthor's intentions. After ''War of the Supermen'' (where General Lane's atrocities include being a willing accomplice in the destruction of New Krypton and the murder of its 100,000 residents) Lois disowns him completely, pointing out he's the monster he always claimed Superman is. After supergirl refuses to kill him (proving to the public that his own perception of Kryptonians is wrong) he kills himself rather than face trial. [[AssholeVictim (And nobody cares.)]]

* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'': Malcolm Merlyn to anyone he has ever held fatherly affection for.
** His relationship with Tommy is the least adversial of the three, as Tommy didn't learn how truly evil his father was until a few hours before his death. Nonetheless, their relationship had been strained ever since the death of Tommy's mother Rebecca, and it is only in the latter half of Season 1 that they get anywhere close to reconciliation -- once Tommy learns the truth, however, he's absolutely horrified, rejects his father, and heads to the Glades to help out, leading to his death.
** His relationship with his daughter Thea is a constant rollercoaster before settling on "unfixable". Initially, Thea welcomed him into her life for saving it and teaching her how to protect herself, but it sours when she learns that he used her to kill Sara. They briefly reconcile in the beginning of Season 4, only for their relationship to be completely destroyed after [[spoiler:Malcolm's sells out her nephew and Oliver's son to Damien Darhk]]. Malcolm still cares for her and won't kill her in battle, a sentiment Thea does ''not'' return.
** Oliver Queen, the son of Malcolm's deceased best friend Robert and the best friend of Malcolm's biological son Tommy, and someone who Malcolm outright admitted was [[LikeASonToMe Like a Son to Him]]. Prior to Oliver's return, Malcolm deeply regretted Oliver's "death", and even after they learned the truth about each other, Malcolm still held some affection for him, hence why he didn't kill him at first after finding out his identity. Despite being the only one of his progeny to not share his blood, Oliver is the one who was most alike to Malcolm (something that Malcolm implies he noticed even before Lian Yu), hence why they resonated on that level. Of course, these days that affection is long gone. Unlike Thea and Tommy, Malcolm despises Oliver with every fiber of his being, a sentiment that is returned with great fervor.

* 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]].

* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Sanji and his father, Judge Vinsmoke. [[spoiler:The man was an AbusiveParent, belittling Sanji at every turn for his weakness and compassion and allowing his other children to bully Sanji with no remorse. 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]].
** His sister Reiju Vinsmoke has a similar relationship with their father though unlike him she was modified to obey him absolutely. It's very telling that when she is told about a plot to murder her family she immediately decides to just let it happen. This does not apply to Sanji who she actually likes
