* Though not exactly an example, this trope is referenced in the penultimate episode of ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', after [[spoiler:Aku found out that he had sired Jack's "lady friend" Ashi (whom he is currently [[VillainOverride using to fight Jack)]]]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Aku''']]: I mean, you try and raise them right, but then they run off with your mortal enemy. What's a dad to do?

* While he hides it for a while, [[spoiler:Hiroshi Sato]] hates [[spoiler:Mako]] (and all other benders) who is dating [[spoiler:his daughter, Asami.]] [[spoiler:Mako]] was especially abhorrent to [[spoiler:Sato]], seeing as he was a penniless firebender. The first part is hypocrisy, since [[spoiler:Sato himself [[SelfMadeMan started out penniless]] and even told Mako not to be ashamed of his poverty. The last part is because his wife was murdered by a firebender. The finale takes it to a [[UpToEleven whole new level]] when Asami gets together with Korra, though by that point Hiroshi was reformed, redeemed, and ever so slightly dead.]]
* Gender inverted in season 4 with Suyin's and her eldest son's fiancee Kuvira. She would have been thrilled with the arrangement if it had been before the TimeSkip (she had been Kuvira's ParentalSubstitute and viewed her as [[LikeASonToMe a second daughter]]), but Kuvira had kind of turned evil in the interim.

* Invoked in the series finale of ''Series/ParksAndRecreation'', where Lesley sees her and Anne's kids sitting together and concludes excitedly that they're going to fall in love, and Anne cautions her that if it's ever going to work they have to pretend to disapprove. Lesley naturally fails this immediately by clapping and giving two thumbs up the moment her daughter glances in her direction.

* On ''Series/ShamelessUS'' Lip's college girlfriend specifically dates him because it drives her stuck up parents nuts. Lip does not mind because she buys him stuff and they have a lot of sex. She even coaches Lip on what to say to her father so the father will offer Lip money to stop dating her. She is then upset because Lip took less money than her previous boyfriend.

* Taken to extremes in ''Series/{{Fargo}}, where Simone Gerhardt sleeps with Mike Milligan, a low-level enforcer for her family's hated rivals in the Kansas City Mafia, in the hopes that she can get Mike to kill her abusive, bigoted father. That the very act of sleeping with a black man would probably piss off her daddy probably adds to the appeal of this plan.

[[spoiler:This ends up backfiring ''terribly'' when her uncle Bear finds out; as much as he hates Dodd, Bear can't abide betrayal of the family, and thus he kills Simone.]]

** Lois Griffin's dating her eventual husband Peter is due at least in part to this trope. It may be that she's trying to get back at her father for being an incredible {{Jerkass}}, ranging from his refusing to let her become a model to his abandoning her to her fate when she was kidnapped for ransom. It is also stated in the early episode "Peter, Peter, Caviar Eater" that Lois was tired of her wealthy family's posh life and her snobbish suitors and decided to rebel by dating Peter, the antithesis of her family's snobbery.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', Mallory Archer respects Lana as much as she does anyone (i.e. barely), but still doesn't want her son Sterling to get back together with her because she's [[DiscriminateandSwitch ''a black'' (pause for drink) ''-ops field agent'']]. Mallory was one herself, and has just barely enough self awareness to realize that she's not exactly a very nurturing person as a result.

** Subverted when Thea starts dating Roy Harper whom she met when he stole her purse. One would presume that this would be met with strong disapproval from her mother and her very protective brother but they actually see Roy as a calming influence on Thea who has previously acted too much like SpoiledBrat.
