* In the second season of ''Anime/CodeGeass'', [[spoiler: Lelouch tries to do this for his companion Rolo, but hardly with the best intentions, by using their memories from the past year to appeal to his "brotherhood".]] It works, and he gets a loyal pawn, but eventually this goes horrifically wrong [[spoiler: when said pawn becomes a murderously jealous {{Yandere}}...]]
** He didn't try to get rid of the murderous tendencies at all. He just tried to [[spoiler: turn him into [[TheDragon a personal Tykebomb for him instead of V.V]], with full intent of [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness offing him when he no longer needed him]].]] Unfortunately all this did was show that an unstable TykeBomb is not someone you want on your side if you actually have people other than yourself that you care about.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', we learn that ''YggdraUnion'''s HeroAntagonist Gulcasa was technically ''born'' one of these--his mother attempted to defuse him by forcibly sealing his abilities and then [[ParentalAbandonment leaving him]] to go FindTheCure. His father, resenting him for the loss of his wife, started abusing him, and any good the seal did was undone posthaste. [[AllThereInTheManual According to]] WordOfGod, the young Gulcasa was a bitter and violent EmptyShell until Siskier and Jenon befriended him and helped him learn to be a normal little kid again.
* In ''[[FireEmblemAkaneia Fire Emblem: Shin Monsho no Nazo]]'', the [[HelloInsertNameHere avatar]] does this for [[spoiler:Eine aka Katarina]].

* Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}: Subverted with Post-Crisis Kara Zor-El. An early story stated that her father trained her to be a weapon, and Superman -with aid of Batman and Franchise/WonderWoman- took her in and acted this way toward her. However her abusive father was eventually retconned as a hallucination caused by Kryptonite poisoning when the real Zor-El showed up and turned out to be a pretty nice guy.

* Barbara Gordon (the first ComicBook/{{Batgirl}}) acts this way toward Cassandra Cain (the second ComicBook/{{Batgirl|2000}}). Franchise/{{Batman}}, DependingOnTheWriter, is either a total JerkAss or so badly damaged that he really cannot help much.
** The same could be said of Dick Grayson, then Franchise/{{Batman}}, towards the current Robin, Damian Wayne, who was raised and trained by the League of Assassins.
* {{Wolverine}} acts like this towards his latest [[KidSidekick young female sidekick]], ComicBook/{{X 23}}.
* While the Female of ''ComicBook/TheBoys'' is not a standard tykebomb, it is how [[VillainProtagonist Butcher]] wants to treat her when they first capture her. However, [[CrazyAwesome the Frenchman]] takes it upon him to train her, and this trope is his approach to her. The defusing is... not quite completely successful.

* {{Wolverine}} Franchise/{{Superman}}: Clark Kent and Lois Lane acted this way toward Lor-Zod, son of General Zod -one of the worst enemies of Superman- and his henchwoman Ursa. Everyone else -including his abusive birth parents, Comicbook/LexLuthor and the USA Government- wanted to capture him and control him. Lois and Clark adopted him and raised him with the name of Christopher "Chris" Kent. Chris eventually became the hero "Nightwing" -no THAT Comicbook/{{Nightwing}}, although both boys took his codenames from the same Kryptonian mythological being- and fought alongside his adoptive father and his cousin Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}.

* This was the plot of an issue of ''PetShopOfHorrors'': in 'Duty,' a teenage boy belonging to an order of child assassins named 'Scorpio's Children' takes cover at D's pet shop. It is up to Count D to try to defuse him, which he does with the aid of an illusory confrontation with the boy's estranged mother. It succeeds, although D being D, he was more interested in the eponymous scorpion than in the child.
