** Toph calls out ''both'' parents in her debut episode, telling them (politely) that she likes being a fighter and is tired of them overprotecting her. Unfortunately, her father decides this means she needs to be protected even ''more''.

** Toph calls out ''both'' parents in her debut episode, telling them (politely) that she likes being a fighter and is tired of them overprotecting her. Unfortunately, her father decides this means she needs to be protected even ''more''. All the more frustrating because all of this takes place after both of Toph's parents have seen her in action and have seen how well she could handle herself.

* In the KatawaShoujo fic [[Fanfic/LillyEpilogueFamilyMatters Lilly Epilogue (Good Ending): Family Matters]], Akira reminds her father that he had left her and Lilly to fend for themselves in Japan when he and their mother had moved to Scotland, in response to him trying to persuade Lilly to return to Scotland, resulting in an argument. [[spoiler:After a little while, even ''Lilly'' gets in on it, as she is infuriated by her father insulting Hisao and Hanako, and at the peak of her anger, yells "YOU HARDLY RAISED ME AT ALL, [[PrecisionFStrike YOU BASTARD]]!!" before ordering him out of her apartment. She later reconciles with him, though]].

** Any time ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} and {{Magneto}} appear in a book together, Quicksilver issues one of these, since his dad recruited him into a terrorist supervillain team and all. Magneto actually tends to take it in stride because he knows he was a terrible father (and, frankly, doesn't seem to care that much about Quicksilver's opinion), sometimes offering a token "I was trying to toughen you up" defense.

* ''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, [[TheLoserIsYou 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.

* ''Comicbook/{{X-Men}}'': [[ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} Scott Summers]]' father Christopher aka Corsair was abducted by aliens when he and his brother were fairly young; when Dad showed up many years later, Scott vented his displeasure that a) he hadn't bothered to come back and look for them earlier, despite having plenty of opportunity, and b) he'd become a ruthless [[SpacePirates space pirate]] in the interim. The [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} animated series]] used a similar storyline, with even more shouting on Scott's part.
