* Toshi and Akiko's mother on ''American Dad'' is this in spades. She works both her children like slaves, though she seems to give Toshi slightly more freedom as he is often seen hanging out with Steve and his other friends. Akiko on the other hand is given treatment that makes the Tiger Mom look slack. When Akiko loses a spelling bee to Steve, her mother swears to DOUBLE her workload.

* 'Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'': When a teenage girl is murdered, investigation reveals that her father was a particularly brutal example of this trope. She and her sister were forced to kneel on grains of rice on the basement floor while their father drilled them on different topics. It turns out that a schoolmate from her incredibly prestigious school (who had been up for over a week via drugs studying for exams) snapped and killed her out of jealousy. So basically there was an entire school full of kids with parents like this.

* Chi-Chi in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' acts like this towards her eldest son, Gohan, wanting him to be a scholar and avoid the violent lifestyle of his father. In the end, Gohan becomes a scholar (though he still enjoys martial arts), and she ends up pushing martial arts training on her second son Goten much the same way. However, Gohan himself repeatedly states that he ''likes'' being a scholar.

** It's hinted that Sora Takenouchi's mother, [[YamatoNadeshiko Toshiko]], was a mixture of this and MyBelovedSmother before the girl was spirited to the Digital World. Since Sora's father is well-intentioned but workaholic ''and'' works in Kyoto, poor Sora had huge identity issues that took quite a while to be resolved, [[spoiler: and not before Toshiko allowed herself to be captured to saver Sora and Biyomon.]]

** ''VideoGame/{{Persona}}'' has a rare male example of the trope. Kumi Hirose had a father who pressures her to keep on top of her grades and is furious that said grades had slipped because of her involvement with the drama club. He rants to her on how he gave up drinking and smoking and how he sacrificed his weekends of golf so that he could make extra money to send her to a better school. Kumi is also berated by her peers at the drama club because she's too distracted with her studying to contribute to the school play. Kumi becomes a total wreck who feels like no one gives her a chance.

** Takagi's mother is this, for which he consistently scored top in his school, but the pressure of it all leading him to rebel by choosing a career in Manga. This was confronted early in the series when he said he's go to the same cheap college as Mashiro so he could skip classes when needed and focus on writing manga. It's implied that she wanted him to study so that he can "avenge" his father, who was fired from his job after TakingTheHeat for his boss. However, when he called her out on this, she was apparently willing to allow him to live as he wanted. His mother apparently has no such standards for Akito's older brother, who is fooling around in college around the start of the series.
** Mashiro's mother also follows this in the early parts of the series; she's the only one in the household who doesn't approve of Mashiro's goals to be a manga writer and constantly encourages him to study instead. When she notices him playing video games instead of studying, she angrily tells him he won't even get into Minami high if he continues at that rate.

Contrast: ParentalAbandonment, OpenMindedParent. Compare: JewishMother and MyBelovedSmother. Can turn your child into a WellDoneSonGuy if all goes according to plan. If it goes pear-shaped, it can lead to a YouAreGrounded moment, or worse still, [[{{Angst}} teen angst]] or [[CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority teen rebellion]]. In the worst cases, particularly in East Asia, the end result is [[DrivenToSuicide attempted suicide]], TheRunaway, the {{Hikikomori}}, or even [[TheDogBitesBack snapping out and committing violence against the parents]].
