** Goku is a zigzagged example. Even though his {{Tsundere}} Chichi usually seems completely in control of him, when he really ''wants'' to defy her wishes (which is usually for ''world saving business'') he proves to be entirely capable of ignoring her. Normally, his easygoing personality just makes him happy to defer to Chichi's more forceful nature.
*** ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' gives another angle to their relationship. When Goku wants to go off and train with Whis (for no particular reason other than that he wants to), Chichi is infuriated that he would spend so much time away from his family and does her best to stop him. He basically ignores her and goes anyway, at which point she simply smiles and says it was unavoidable, suggesting her behavior isn't necessarily an effort to absolutely control Goku so much as to temper his enthusiasm with some degree of familial responsibility.

** As of Anime/DragonBallSuper, ''Vegeta'' has become one to Bulma, paralleling Goku's relationship with Chichi. Though he is more prone to ignoring her, he is ''terrified'' of actually offending her, and will concede to her wishes when push comes to shove. ''Super'' even has him note that Saiyan men ''[[AmazonChaser really]]'' [[AmazonChaser have a thing for strong-willed women.]]; Bulma may not be an ActionGirl, but [[PluckyGirl she]] has [[AlmightyMom plenty of pluck.]]
