** Wesley to his father in "Linage"."Lineage".



** Parodied when all the MainCharacters are hit with a memory erasing spell, and amnesiac Spike starts thinking Giles is his father. ([[ItMakesSenseInContext They both have British accents, physically they're the right ages...]])
--->'''Spike:''' God, how I must hate you.\\
'''Giles:''' What did I do?\\
'''Spike:''' There's always something.
*** Later circumstantial evidence seems to indicate that Spike's first name is "Randy" (which [[UnfortunateNames means "horny" in British slang]]).
---->'''Spike:''' I knew there was a reason I hated you!\\
'''Giles:''' Randy's...a family name, undoubtedly.



--> '''Spike''': Every time you look at me, you see all the dirty little things I've done, all the lives I've taken... because of you! Drusilla sired me, but you... you made me a monster.
---> '''Angel''': I didn't make you, Spike. I just opened up the door, and let the real you out.
--> '''Spike''': You never knew the real me. Too busy tryin' to see your own reflection, praying there was someone as disgusting as you in the world, so you could stand to live with yourself. Take a long look, hero. I'm nothing like you.
* In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' Laurel calls her father out for using her as bait to catch the Vigilante. She tells him that the most frightening part, the most dangerous part, was having guns pointed at her (by the police).

* ''Literature/JamesAndTheGiantPeach'': In the book, James's Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker were run over by the peach and killed. In the movie however, they catch up to James when he finally makes it to New York City. James is alone, no idea where his friends are, and the townspeople who witnessed his arrival are too flabbergasted by what's going on to do anything but stand there and watch, yet he tells his [[EvilMatriarch evil aunts]] "I said, [[PunctuatedForEmphasis no. I'm. NOT!]] I hate that house and that cold room, and how I'm always hungry! ''(crowd gasps)'' And how you beat me! ''(crowd gasps again and turn to Sponge and Spiker)'' AND TELL ME I WAS NOTHING!" When Sponge and Spiker tell him to shut up, he replies, "No, not this time! I flew a giant peach across the ocean. ''I'' landed on the tallest building in the world! ''I'' made it! I'm not the one who's nothing, [[ThisLoserIsYou YOU are]], and I'm never going back with you! Not me, and not the peach!" They retaliate by attempting to [[AxeCrazy attack him with axes]] only for [[TrueCompanions the bugs whom James has grown to consider family]] [[BigDamnHeroes to descend from the sky and]] help James deliver much overdue justice to Spiker and Sponge, who can only freak out at the sight of the bugs, screaming their heads off. The movie seems to be a much more satisfying way to see them go down.

** The fanfic comic [[http://miyukey.deviantart.com/gallery/60808776/ML-comic-DOWN Down]] features Adrien, who has had his confession to Ladybug thrown in his face and Alya and Marinette ignoring and avoiding him with the former throwing him a DeathGlare every chance she gets, finally snapping when his father scolds him for making him look bad and launching into one of these speeches, including claiming his MissingMom was right to call Gabriel "a selfish bastard who doesn't need a family". [[NotHelpingYourCase Gabriel slaps Adrien to shut him up]] and while he [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone immediately regrets it and tries to apologize]], [[BreakTheCutie Adrien is broken and no longer has any energy to stand up for himself]], [[IHaveNoSon though in a second shorter example of this trope, he pointedly reframes his relationship with Gabriel as that of employee/employer rather than father/son.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the AlternateUniverseFic ''Fanfic/GoingAnotherWay'', Shinji (who's a bit more strong-willed here due to growing up with a caring and supportive uncle instead of an apathetic guardian) calls Gendo out, but none of them really faze the older Ikari much... until [[spoiler:Shinji is able to pull his mother Yui's soul from Unit 01 out enough for her to be able to contact the outside world. And Yui is '''''not at all''''' happy to learn what her husband has done since her disappearance, all in the name of getting her back no less]]. She [[WhatTheHellHero chews him out]] so thoroughly that Gendo, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone guilt-stricken]], [[DrowningMySorrows drinks enough alcohol]] to necessitate him getting his stomach pumped. Afterwards, he [[TheAtoner begins making an honest effort at redeeming himself]].

* ''ABrighterDark'': Camilla does this after Corrin returns, accusing Garon of essentially turning her into a [[SuicideMission suicide bomber.]] Garon reacts pretty calmly, stating that 1) that is pretty much exactly what he did. 2) It was indeed a pretty dickish thing to do. And 3) [[IDidWhatIHadToDo He's not particularly sorry, since he wasn't given a lot of other options.]]
