* Chapter 6 of ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'' is primarily centered around Lucas missing his deceased mother.

to:

* Chapter 6 Could be argued that the entirety of ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'' is centered around this. [[spoiler: Lucas is stuck in a stagnant form of grieving for his mom during most of the game, always remembering what she taught him and how much he misses her, and visiting her grave often.]] This is also the reason that [[spoiler: Claus set out to avenge her death and disappears afterwards.]] [[spoiler: Flint also shares this sentiment, but instead of grieving together with Lucas, he focuses his thoughts and time on searching for Claus instead to cope.]] Chapter 6 of the game is also primarily centered around [[spoiler: Lucas missing tearfully chasing his deceased mother.Mother's ghost through a field of Sunflowers to be with her again, even jumping off a cliff in his desperation to reach her.]] And at the end of the game, [[spoiler: her ghost returns to bring Claus back to his senses, and he subsequently kills himself to be together with her in death.]]

A StockPhrase spoken by a person whose mother has died or is now permanently beyond reach. This tends to be more common to hear from younger children, especially when talking to their remaining parental figures or siblings. The stock response is "I miss her too". This can also be included in conversations with non-family members, though the personal nature of the discussion usually limits it to friends and rivals, who may share similar stories of loss.

* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Shiro lost his parents when he was barely a baby. He misses them -and his older brother Kouji in ''Anime/GreatMazinger''-, but he mainly and badly misses his mother. How badly? The tile of an episode is "Shiro misses his mother" (in the Latin dubbing). In that episode, [[spoiler:a woman came to the [[HomeBase Institute]] claiming she was Kouji and Shiro's mother and wants to get reunited with their children again.]] Kouji was -rightfully- suspicious, but Shiro was too glad and happy for questioning anything.
* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': Pretty much everyone -but Ritsuko- misses their mothers.

** While avoiding the exact phrase, the series includes a scene of Shinji and Gendo visiting Yui's grave that kind of carries the feel of this trope. Rather then the standard "I miss her too" sentiment though, Gendo instead discusses how he was fortunate to have what time he did with her and how important it is to rise above the loss, which Shinji finds rather inspiring.
*** Then again, [[spoiler:the ultimate goal of the masterplan that Gendo is scheming throughout the series, is using an apocalyptic event to reunite his soul with Yui]].
