* In ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', Toph Beifong's parents quote the trope name word for word as justification for their decision to lock her up, ostensibly to protect her. This is directly after [[HandicappedBadass Toph]] beat up an arena full of large, earthbending men right in front of her dad. You'd think they'd get the idea that their daughter is ''more'' than capable of protecting herself...

In some works this might be PlayedForLaughs during an intervention. Compare ToughLove and CruelToBeKind, which happens with something undesirable that ''really is'' for the person's own good. If the helpers are overbearing, a nuisance, or downright harmful in their attempts to render assistance, expect to hear complaints about UnwantedAssistance.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode "Dough Ray Me", this is Scrooge's rationale for not advancing Huey, Dewey or Louie their allowance - or giving Fenton Crackshell a raise.
