* In ''Fanfic/PerfectionIsOverrated'', [[MaiHime Mai and Nao]] chance upon each other in the hospital, where Mai visited Takumi and Nao visited her comatose mother; Mai learns about Nao's comatose mother at this point. However, one thing that helps them come to an understanding with each other over time is the contrasts between them- Mai has taken care of Takumi since her parents' deaths while Nao has no one of the sort, and Nao's mother could one day awaken from her coma- realizing the difference in their circumstances helps them understand the other and see their own past decisions in a new light.

* In the ''NanohaStrikerS'' supplementary manga, Teana starts showing much more understanding and care (in [[{{Tsundere}} her own way]]) for Subaru after learning about the death of Subaru's mother in the line of duty, since she herself lost [[PromotionToParent her surrogate-parent brother]] in a similar fashion, in addition to her parents, who died earlier.

Added DiffLines:
*** There's even some symmetry in how their fathers died and what they did about it: Bruce's father was killed by a criminal, so Bruce fights crime. Hal's father died in a plane crash, so Hal became a test pilot (who also fights crime, but the test pilot thing is more integral to his personality).

* In ''Series/HouseOfAnubis'' it's surprising how long it took for two people to bond over their parental issues, as everyone seems to have them. In this case, it was Jerome and Joy.

Joy. * Subverted in ''Series/TheVampireDiaries''. Anna tells Elena about her plan to open the tomb containing Katherine so she can free her mother, who was imprisoned there a long time ago. Elena sympathizes with her, but Anna says "Yeah, I think we'll skip the dead mom bonding so you can start serving a purpose."

* Implied in one ''StarWars'' comic starring Boba Fett. Boba's latest target tries to throw him off by pointing him in the direction of a possible Jedi in hiding. Boba tracks the man down and blows up his house, but discovers that the man is no Jedi. He is merely the son of a Jedi who died in the battle of Geneosis (the same battle in which Boba's father Jango lost his life) and was left with nothing but his father's lightsaber as a keepsake. The man starts to cry as he states that he had to grow up without a father, remarking that he doubts Boba would be able to understand. As Boba recalls the moment he held Jango's severed head as a child, the man's own son arrives on the scene. He asks Boba if he's going to kill them both. In the next scene Boba tracks down and finishes off his original target.
