* A VillainProtagonist version, Alex Mercer from ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' shows he deeply cares for his sister Dana. [[spoiler:Later it turns out that "Alex" is actually the virus using his body as a form, and the original Alex was in fact just a monster who was willing to sacrifice her along with the rest of New York out of spite.

* In ''{{VideoGame/Destiny}}'', the Taken King storyline is kicked off when the Guardians kill Crota, the son of Oryx, the GodEmperor of the Hive. Oryx is so utterly enraged by the death of his son that he ends his [[OrcusOnHisThrone armchair leadership]] and heads towards Earth ''personally'' to destroy the Guardians in revenge. Further, it's revealed that Oryx also has two sisters (his co-rulers), two daughters, and an adopted son. He genuinely loves each and every one of them, giving his all to protect or avenge them; even when the foster son betrayed him and became a heretic, Oryx couldn't bring himself to kill him, locking him away instead.

* ''VideoGame/TwistedMetal'' has Calypso, both a [[LiteralGenie Literal]] AND a [[Jerkass Genie]] that will be more than willing to screw up your wish if he can find a loop-hole ForTheEvulz. And usually, he does. But he has a real soft spot for his deceased daughter, Krista. This shows in the second game and ''Head-On'', where his love is exploited by the police into setting her body up to be a bomb ([[YouAreNotAlone which works]]) and in the latter [[CallingTheOldManOut she chews him out for causing death and destruction just to have her back]] and demands [[RetCon that the accident that killed her to never happen]]. Unfortunately, he is unable to grant her that wish and sadly laments on having to keep her happily until she recovers from the comatose state he puts her in. One of the few times where he ''wants'' to grant a contestant their wish and ''can't''.

* [[ComicBook/TheFlash The Rogues]] are a close-knit group of criminals who act as a family, albeit a dysfunctional one. They originally got together just out of practicality, and a few of the guys couldn't stand the others. But over time, they realised that they're all the family any of them has. This trope is actually the reason Captain Cold, who had been retired at that point, reformed the Rogues after they disbanded; his only family, his sister Lisa, had just been killed. While he ends up expanding the Rogues to include the newer groups also calling themselves the Rogues, he still only considered the core group (himself, Heatwave, Weather Wizard, and the legacy versions of the Trickster, Mirror Master and Captain Boomerang) as the real Rogues and his family. Among all the Rogues, they will repeatedly state that their group is just a working group and they have no attachment to each other, but they have repeatedly shown that is not the case.
