* When the party inadvertently breaks into the Wyndian royal castle in ''BreathOfFire 2'', the king and queen completely ignore Nina's presence as they have the group ejected, even silencing their other daughter when she attempts to identify her older sister. They know perfectly well who she is, [[spoiler: and actually do this out of kindness. Nina was born with black wings - and any child with black wings is supposed to be put to death, since they're prophesied to bring tragedy to Wyndia. The royal family covered up the truth and disowned her so at least she'd have a chance to live. Nina understandably [[FreakinessShame has a complex about this]], but doesn't blame her parents for it.]]

* A common occurrence in ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines''. Many parents have disowned their children when they turn out to be bloodliners, though in Belladonna's case, she was thrown out for being a ''lesbian'' instead.

* ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': Orpheus and Morpheus go through a mutual one. Orpheus refuses his father after Eurydice dies and Morpheus tries -- [[LackOfEmpathy in his own way]] -- to encourage him to live on. This wounds Morpheus' pride, so he ends up reciprocating. [[spoiler:It takes the two roughly two millennia to so much as talk with each other again, at which point both have matured considerably and are able to reconcile.]]

* Played for laughs in ''Theatre/{{Ruddigore}}'', when the protagonist is afflicted with an ancient {{curse}} that obliges him to commit a serious crime every day. He tries to [[LoopholeAbuse satisfy the letter]] of the curse [[PokeThePoodle without doing anything genuinely terrible]], so one of his "crimes" is to disinherit his only son. There's just one small problem:
-->'''Roderic:''' But you haven't got a son.
-->'''Robin:''' No--not yet. I disinherited him in advance, to save time. You see--by this arrangement--he'll be born ready disinherited.
-->'''Roderic:''' I see. But I don't think you can do that.
-->'''Robin:''' My good sir, [[InsaneTrollLogic if I can't disinherit my own unborn son, whose unborn son can I disinherit?]]
