* In ''Theatre/KingLear'', Kent, a loyal subject, confronts Lear, who had just banished and disinherited Cordelia, under penalty of banishment:
-->'''Kent''': Be Kent unmannerly when Lear is mad.\\
What wouldst thou do, old man?\\
Thinkest thou that duty shall have dread to speak\\
When power to flattery bows? To plainness honor's bound\\
When majesty falls to folly. Reserve thy state\\
And in thy best consideration check\\
This hideous rashness. Answer my life my judgment,\\
Thy youngest daughter does not love thee least,\\
Nor are those empty-hearted whose low sounds\\
Reverb no hollowness.

-->'''Simmons''': All mom ever wanted was your love. To be with you! In our two-story Victorian home in the Cotswolds! But could you even give her a moment, what with your banking job requiring you to travel to the States from Tuesday to Saturday every other week? No!\\

And isten to the song "This Song Saved My Life." There is a line which says that he became closer with his dad than he used to be.

* [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed HARSHLY]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. [[spoiler: Severa idn't take kindly how her mother Cordelia held an UndyingLoyalty to Prince Chrom, the guy whom she once held an UnrequitedLove for. At some point, she was both so upset at what she saw as a borderline betrayal to her dad (whoever he is) ''and'' so scared about Cordelia possibly dying in the war, that she yelled at her mother for it.]] The result? [[spoiler: Cordelia ''went out to fight, died in battle and never returned home'', and Severa was [[MyGreatestFailure totally traumatised]] for that.]] [[spoiler: When Severa returns to the past with her friends and she's recruited by the Shepherds, she ''again'' questions Cordelia and her throughts on Chrom... but this time it's more of a desperate JerkAssFacade, as she's very aware that this Cordelia isn't the same mother she lost (TimeyWimeyBall and all) and doesn't want to emotionally connect to her only to probably lose her again.]]

* Implied in ''VisualNovel/Ever17'' [[spoiler: In both Kid's routes there is a heated argument between Tsugumi and Sara about Tsugumi refusing to give Sara's some "answer" and running away from her, which anded with ArmorPiercingSlap from Sara to Tsugumi.]] Only later we find out that parties involved were parent and child and it's unclear if they knew at the time and if that's related to the argument.

** When [[SpoonyBard Elan]] finally realises what [[spoiler: his father is]] he calls him out on causing the suffering of countless slaves, and when he learns that he fought and exiled Nale, not solely because he betrayed him, but because [[spoiler: he did not do it the way Tarquin approved of]], he draws his sword, outraged.

** Happens with [[ConflictBall distressing]] and [[AesopAmnesia perfectly typical]] regularity to [[IWorkAlone Batman]]. The ones doing the calling out tend to be Nightwing and Oracle -- the oldest son and the not-quite-daughter with the most equal standing with Batman. Oracle criticizes him openly a lot more than Nightwing does, whereas Nightwing's are more violent. Stephanie Brown ''unleashes'' on Batman in the Road Home for all the manipulation crap she's been through. Jason Todd has called him out on his moral selfishness.

** In ''[[ComicBook/RobinSeries Robin]]'' Tim lays things out for his incredibly neglectful biological father when said father says he doesn't even know his son anymore:
--->'''Tim:''' Who is the son you know, Dad? You donít know me, you never bothered. You shipped me from one boarding school to another and nobody paid any attention as long as my grades stayed high. You and mom were too involved running around the world. Your careers-\\
'''Jack:''' Donít think you can talk to me like that just because Iím in this chair. Just because Iím not like Bruce WayneÖ\\
'''Tim:''' At least Bruce cares about ''me''. Not just [[TrophyChild how I reflect on him]]! You donít know me! You donít know a thing about me!

* ''Webcomic/TheLastDaysOfFoxhound'':
** Liquid Snake (in Decoy Octopus's body) calls out his father, Big Boss (who is currently possessing Liquid's original body) for turning him into an insecure showoff so history wouldn't remember Big Boss only as "Liquid Snake's father."
** Liquid Snake calls the spirit of Big Boss out again later after Big Boss shows him everything the Philosophers/Patriots have done, asking why he didn't just tell him all this from the beginning instead of jerking Liquid around and manipulating him just like the Patriots.

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': When she finds out that her mother tried to use a New Year's celebration as an excuse to play matchmaker for another ArrangedMarriage with the son of a banking family, Asuna is ''anything'' but pleased and calls Kyouko out on it. When her mom tries to force the issue and say Asuna should respect her decisions, Asuna retorts that Kyouko also tried to set her up with [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Sugou]], which, considering that Sugou trapped 300 SAO survivors in ALO to perform mind control experiments on them, tried to rape Asuna herself, and nearly drove RECTO to bankruptcy with his actions, was obviously a horrible mistake. Kyouko [[NeverMyFault refuses any blame]] for that particular incident and expresses disapproval of Asuna dating Kazuto, at which point Asuna has had enough and [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere walks out on the conversation]].
