* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In the BabysittingEpisode, Stumpy (of all people) is one. He forcibly babysits Quack Quack, who didn't even want or need a babysitter, and does stuff like ForceFeeding him spinach using a funnel and a baseball bat. Eventually, Quack Quack gets annoyed and Stumpy winds up as a BadlyBatteredBabysitter.

* The unnamed babysitter for Georgia and Shaun in ''[[{{Newsflesh}} Feed]]''. [[spoiler: She decides that Georgia doesn't really ''need'' her sunglasses and tosses them out into the backyard, making the twins search for them. Important detail: this is after the ZombieApocalypse and zombies are still shambling around everywhere. Fortunately for them, the same ocular medical condition that ''did'' make the sunglasses necessary allowed Georgia to see an incoming zombie in time for Shaun to deal with the threat. A decade later, he still thinks that's the best gift she's ever given him.]]

* In ''Disney/TheRescuers'', Madame Medusa and Mr. Snoops need Penny to help them retrieve a diamond at the bottom of a cave too small for an adult to fit into. The cave is prone to flooding whenever the tide comes in, but Medusa in particular doesn't care as long as Penny gets the diamond. Oh, and they actually kidnapped her from an orphanage for this.

* ''TheBerenstainBears'' appear at first to have an example of this in "The Sitter," but then Mrs. Grizzle turns out to be pretty nice after all. There's also a subversion in "The Week at Grandma's" where Mama and Papa Bear go on a vacation and leave the kids with their grandparents. They think they're in for a hell of boredom, but the grandparents turn out to be great fun.

* Played with in ''ThatsSoRaven''. In "Cake Fear," Raven and her brother are told their parents are hiring an old babysitter to look after them for the weekend. The babysitter, Ms. Patterson, was a complete pushover who let them do whatever they wanted, and they blamed her for eating a cake their dad made for their mom's birthday. Raven expects her to still be the same pushover she was before, until they find out she had a psychotic breakdown, spent time in prison... and escaped. And then Raven's friends start disappearing while staying at the house. [[spoiler: It turns out the whole thing's a reality TV show prank on Raven and Cory. Ms. Patterson wanted to get back at them for blaming her for the cake incident, and their dad was in on it the whole time.]]

** This trope was once turned on it's head when Timmy wished for Vicky to be a child. In a turn of events, Timmy had to look after the young Vicky, she got his fairies (since unhappy children get them) and she used these on Timmy, making him suddenly into a BadlyBatteredBabysitter while she turned into a EnfantTerrible.

In a turn of events, child and proceeded to act as ''her'' BabysitterFromHell as revenge for all the torment he'd suffered at her hands.
