* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Shou, afraid that lack of results would strip him of funding, tested out his alchemy on his family including his young daughter and led to their tragic demise. This event became a defining motivator for the protagonists' journey throughout the work.

* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'': while such experiments are disturbingly common, the most notable example is an [[InvertedTrope inversion]]: when the Bell Witch dunked an infant [[CastingAShadow Nacht]] into the Erebos, not only was it a magical experiment rather than a scientific one, Kate wasn't her child at all; she'd just kidnapped some kid, figuring that dropping her into a place of utter darkness would kill her, but when she not only survived but displayed power over the Erebos, she adopted the child and used her in her schemes.

* The ''Anime/CodeGeass'' novels seem to take this route, a bit: [[spoiler: Nunnally's hinted at, but never explained in the anime, psychic powers]] are a result of experimentation with Geass while she was in the womb, and her [[spoiler: psychosomatic blindness]] was an attempt to get her to use those abilities. For the record, they seem to be [[spoiler: reception-only touch telepathy and some sort of sensory ability.]] Considering the number of elements added to the second series from other spin-offs - specifically, Lost Colour's Knight Of Nine, and Cornelia's two wing-girls who join the Valkyrie squadron after her disappearance - it's not completely impossible that it was added into the background. Just look through the two seasons and count how often [[spoiler: Nunnally]] seems to be able to detect something that she shouldn't really be able to.

* Grisha Jaeger in ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' apparently did this with his son Eren. It's unclear as to how much of an experiment it was, but given that he had full access to his and Carla's adoptive daughter Mikasa (who is basically a level above Eren in almost every possible way) but doesn't seem to have done anything with her, he seems to have decided to keep it in the family. [[spoiler: Confirmed later, when Eren recovers from his TraumaInducedAmnesia...]]

* One of the origin stories from ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''[='s=] Mr Freeze had him experimenting cryogeny on this ill wife to keep her alive until a cure was found of her illness. It could have worked, if not for outer influence.

* In ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', Walden's mother Robin, a primatologist, raised Walden and a baby gorilla at the same time as an experiment, even going so far as to freeze Walden's embryo to make sure he and the gorilla were born at the same time. Walden does not take the revelation well; he thought "Magilla" was an imaginary friend, and was so traumatized when the gorilla was taken away that he believed he would be sent to the jungle if he misbehaved. All things considered, Walden turned out relatively well, and as Alan points out, compared to ''his'' own mother, Robin was Mother of the Year.

* Heinrich von Raitenau in ''TraumaCenter: Under The Knife 2'' uses his own children as Sinners: Living incubators for the man-made pathogen GUILT.
* Played with in ''StarOceanTillTheEndOfTime''. Fayt and Maria were experimented on by their parents and subsequently given [[RealityWarper reality bending superpowers]]. Their parents are not malicious in nature however, as they were trying to give them the abilities to save the universe from being destroyed. They also explicitly state that they used their own children as they felt it would be wrong to ask another person's child to shoulder their sins.

* This serves as part of the backstory for [[LongLostRelative Hamuko]] in ''Fanfic/Persona3MomentoUmbrae'' where, as a child, she was constantly subjected to Shadow-related experiments by her EvilUncle as means to force a natural Persona potential out of her. Right after he had taken her away from her parents when she was born and faking her death, no less.

* In all variants of ''Anime/BubblegumCris'' (the comic, the anime, the reboot), Professor Stingray experimented on his daughter Sylia. Some cases it was because his family was sick, other cases because his family ''was just available.''

* In ''VideoGame/{{Galerians}}'', two computer scientists suspect that the [[AIIsACrapshoot A.I. they created to run their city is plotting genocide]] and intends to kill them, so in desperation they [[NeuroVault implant anti-A.I. programs in their children's brains]] as a failsafe. The procedure is invasive judging from the two kids' bandaged heads, and may factor into the [[MindlinkMates psychic link they develop]] - the game doesn't spell it out.
