* In ''{{Juno}}'', Juno's dad blatantly states that he's a war veteran. The precise war is never quite pinned down.

* Played with in ''Literature/WarHorse'', where it isn't quite the trope it'd be in a post-Great War setting. Mr. Narracott is shown as having fought in the Boer War, and it's hardened him somewhat, but not in a [[BadAss positive sense]]. He [[ShellShockedVeteran refuses to talk about what he did or even acknowledge his medals and regimental pennant]]. His wife explains the situation to Albie, his gentle and somewhat simple-minded son, but it doesn't keep him from attempting to enlist in World War One at the first opportunity.

* On ''{{Daria}},'' Jake has a HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood about his father, "Mad Dog" Morgendorffer, and his nasty parenting techniques. It culminated in Jake spending his teen years in an equally-unpleasant military school, so he has a smidge of this trope himself.

* In ''Film/PacificRim'', both Stacker Pentecost and Hercules Hansen have served in the military for nearly two decades. Prior to K-Day and the {{Kaiju}} invasion, Stacker had served in the British Royal Air Force with his sister, Luna, while Herc was already enlisted in the Australian Royal Air Force. After that, they joined the Pan Pacific Defense Corps and eventually became the longest serving (and surviving) Jaeger pilots. By the time of the film, Stacker is the Marshal of the PPDC and Hong Kong Shatterdome; Herc ''still'' pilots Striker Eureka alongside his young son, Chuck.
