* Played with: Ed and Al's training with [[BadassTeacher Izumi]] in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is shown like this, to the point that hearing her name is enough to turn them into pathetic wrecks. But then they ''asked'' her to train them. They even ''insisted'', because they were desperate for power, and Izumi actually ''went easy on them'' and what they were put through was child's play compared to the training Izumi went through herself. Of course, her idea of going easy on them during their training was to strand them on a deserted island for a month, then get her store assistant to dress up as a monster, steal their food, and beat the crap out of them every day until they toughened up. At least he was around to make sure they didn't die, which was more than she got (she was suppsoed to train under a skilled alchemist, but instead under his martial arts twin brother. During the harsh lessons, she did form her alchemy philosophy from it.)

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Joffrey getting slapped is a RunningGag for the first two seasons. It drops off as he matures and his insanity grows more dangerous.

The humor comes from the fact that he deserves it, and that a dwarf that he towers over is the one slapping him. It drops off as he matures and his insanity grows more dangerous.

** If Luffy's childhood was anything to go by, his older brother Portgas D. Ace likely had a similar childhood. Note that Ace is every bit as scared of Garp as Luffy is; he only went against him when defending his younger brother.

* While he ''is'' actually surrounded by loving and supportive parental figures, ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' occasionally likes to play Steven's gem-inflicted trauma for laughs, such as when he cheerfully tells Pearl that fleeing from the police in a high-speed car chase was "The most fun I've had since that time you almost let me die!" Or, on a completely separate occasion:

* Literature/TheTimeOfTheGhost, which is based on the [[Creator/DianaWynneJones author's]] real childhood growing up with parents more focused on teaching than on parenting. Diana Wynne Jones actually toned down some of the more absurd moments, and people STILL didn't believe [[RealityIsUnrealistic parents would be like that]].
