* ''MahouSenseiNegima'': Turns out that this is part of the reason that Negi ended up living with his cousin. As a war hero, his father made enemies that still hold a grudge on him for foiling their plans. [[spoiler: And when your mother gets wrongfully accused for starting a war, then escapes her execution by [[FakingTheDead faking her death]], it's probably best for you that you don't hang around her. Or live in [[MagicWorld her home world]].]] Just look at [[DoomedHometown his hometown]] [[AncientConspiracy when they]] [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive found where he lives]]...

* In the epilogue true ending of [[VisualNovel/GSenjouNoMaou The Devil on G-String]], [[spoiler: knowing Haru might get imprisoned for attempted murder of 'Maou' through illegal possession of a firearm, Kyousuke intentionally twisted his story during his confession to the police to ensure his lover Haru will not be branded a criminal so that her violinist career won't be ruined]]. Kyousuke also behaved like a jerk towards Tsubaki, Kanon & Mizuha during their visits in order not to soil their reputation for associating with a murderer.

* Inspiring the Xena reference above, [[Myth/GreekMythology Zeus]]' mother Rhea lovingly palmed her youngest son off on a centaur to raise on a beautiful island. (So her husband wouldn't swallow him like the rest.) This was somewhat more of a 'keep him alive' stratagem than a 'normal life' one--there hadn't even really been enough people in the history of the world at this point for 'normal to have many benchmarks.
