* Marco's mother in ''Webcomic/MarcoandMarty''. An entire strip is devoted to her complaining about her son's ex boyfriend, and she visits him at college with blintzes and brisket because he "sounded thin" on the phone.

** There's another version of that joke, substituting the rottweiler with a Palestinian terrorist. The punchline is "you can negotiate with the latter".

* Sabra Klein's mother in ''ComicStrip/PreTeena'' is proud, protective and smothering to her {{Adorkable}} daughter. It is hinted that Sabra's multiple allergies and food-phobias are down to over-protective parents. Mrs Klein also dissaproves of her daughter's nickname "Stick", even though ''everyone'' calls her this.

* Some believe that Creator/PeterSellers' overbearing mother was partly responsible for his personal issues. The biopic ''The Life and Death of Peter Sellers'' makes it look like she was almost single-handedly responsible.
* Comedian Amy Borkowsky's mother is such a hilariously extreme example of this that she made a habit of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE7CshexBmg recording her mother's phone messages.]]
* The Israeli Merkava tank, was once described as "A cross between a mass of rumbling destruction and a Jewish mother".
** Which is scarier?
** The Merkava has a spacious crew compartment with rear-opening doors that can, in extremis, welcome an entire infantry section into its loving bosom and keep them safe... and once they're in there and the doors clang shut, they're prisoners.
* UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein's mother, Pauline Einstein, seems to have been one. Not only was she very proud to be Jewish, but she was also brutally against Albert's relationship with Mileva Maric (who would become his first wife) for a lot of reasons, but not least because she was of a different nationality and religion (Serbian-Orthodox). Different attempts to dissusade her son from marrying Mileva included throwing ridiculous tantrums and trying to guilt-trip him. Nevertheless though, Albert disobeyed her and had two sons with Mileva Maric.
** But after his divorce from Mileva, Albert got re-married to his cousin Elsa Löwenthal. Despite how it would count as incest to many people today, Pauline was alledgely much happier about ''that'' union (even if they wouldn't be HappilyMarried either).
* The famous violinist [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/3637593/I-only-felt-loved-when-I-played-well.html Yehudi Menuhin's]] mother who "ruled her children with a rod of iron".
* The more positive side of the trope is revealed with a [[http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/162095/jewish-grandma-to-gay-grandson-stay-away-from-sochi Jewish grandmother's warning]] to her gay grandson (who was traveling) not to go to Russia for the [[UsefulNotes/OlympicGames 2014 Olympic Games]], because she doesn't want anything to happen to him. Turns out he wasn't going anywhere near Russia, but still, awww...
* Actor and comedian Milton Berle blamed the breakup of his marriage on his mother. He said:
--> "My mother never resented me going out with a girl, but if I had more than three dates with one girl, Mama found some way to break it up."

** Sylvia's mother Yetta acts like a typical dotting Jewish Grandmother to Fran and the Sheffield children and occasionally like a snarky Jewish Mother to Sylvia.
