* On ''Series/Veep'' Selina Meyer talks warmly of her father, a great businessman who built the family fortune, bought her a horse as a kid and always brought her snowglobes for family vacations. To her, he was a much better parent than her cold mother who sold the horse off. But during a visit home, Selina finds out the truth: Her father had been cheating with his secretary for years and in fact, died during sex with her. ''He'' was the one who sold the horse to pay off debts as he was a horrible businessman and her mother had converted the barn into his private place to be with his mistress so not to be caught in a hotel. Every "business trip" was just him off with the secretary and ''she'' was the one who bought Selina the snowglobes. Selina is so upset that she ends up destroying the office her dad had and realizing how she ended up marrying a guy just as slimy as her father.

* In ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', Terra, who has been overly-conscious and quite a bit afraid by the darkness in his own heart, had quite a bit of respect for Master Xehanort, who assumed a guiding role in regards to channeling the darkness towards something good. [[spoiler:Sadly, his respect for the old master turned entirely into rage and hatred when Xehanort manipulated him into fighting his father-figure Eraqus, murdering said father figure, and revealing himself to have been screwing with everyone Terra knows for the sake of his evil plan. In fact, part of Xehanort's plan was to purposely set up this trope to maximize Terra's hatred and send his darkness into overdrive, giving the old man the chance to take that younger body for himself.]]
