** It also includes a more traditional version with Molly Weasley: the otherwise soft hearted and kind mother kills [[spoiler: Bellatrix Lestrange]]. This counts as more than just MamaBear in part because it's the only recorded killing curse ever used by someone other than a bad guy in the books. Doubly surprising considering how strong and experienced her opponent was, but works as an in-universe version of the mythical mother lifting a car off her child. ''"Not my daughter you bitch!"''

** This being [[BadAss Whitebeard]] however, he was playing a hefty case of XanatosSpeedChess with the World Government during the encounter and [[spoiler: his defeat and demise]] happened because of unforeseen events such as [[spoiler: Blackbeard turning up and Ace being killed, resulting in a HeroicBSOD]].

*** He pulls this trick again in season 6, where he [[spoiler: refuses to wake a pregnant Belle from the sleeping curse, because while she is in the coma she is not with Rumplestiltskin. While Moe certainly has reasons to doubt his son in law, he takes away his daughter's agency and endangers both her life and that of her child. Moe might not know about the threat to her life, but it is still an awful thing to do to your own daughter: being under the curse means Belle is trapped in an eternal nightmare from which she cannot wake up by herself.]]

** Don't forget how Geoffrey Wilder from the 1980s bargained with the Gibborim in the present - just because he wanted his to-be-deceased wife and son back (keep in mind that at this time, Geoffrey hasn't even ''met'' Alex yet. He also chooses Nico as the sacrifice just because she refused the advances of Alex. Oh, and there's also the time when the kids are stuck in 1800s New York and Chase meets the past versions of the Yorkes, who were also time traveling in that date. Upon learning from Chase that their daughter is going to die in the future, Mr. Yorkes tries to attack him. The pair immediately begin making plans to keep Gertrude safe - and bring a nuclear bomb from the future to blow up 1800s New York. As revenge for Getrude dying in ''any'' possible future.

Compare MamaBear and PapaWolf, which is more or the same concept but only occurs as an immediate defensive reaction to an emergent threat, and does not necessarily entail vengeance or DisproportionateRetribution. The EvilMatriarch is often an extreme version of the Knight Templar Parent, though by no means always. See also MyBelovedSmother. An older brother who will protect/avenge his younger sibling by any means neccesary is a KnightTemplarBigBrother, which is an extreme version of BigBrotherInstinct. For Knight Templar Parents minus the KnightTemplar part, see GoodParents.

* In ''Series/MadamSecretary'', the Russian foreign minister's daughter is one of Henry's students at Georgetown, specifically in Ethics. The {{irony}} of him trying to get Henry to change his daughter's grade in "The Operative" is [[LampshadeHanging not lost on anyone]]. Henry flatly refuses to give her an A for C work, [[spoiler:even when the foreign minister makes it a condition of helping Liz free a US operative from Pakistani death row. They eventually meet halfway with Henry giving her an incomplete so she can retake the course.]]

* {{Subverted}} in ''Series/TheGoodWife''. Lemond Bishop is the biggest drug kingpin in Chicago and is known to have had his own people killed on mere suspicion they might turn state's evidence, [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes and is devoted to his son Dylan]], so when Kalinda discover's Dylan's being bullied she tries to keep it from Bishop. [[spoiler:Bishop just calls the bully's father and tells him about the problem like a normal, non-drug-dealing parent (though admittedly you can hear a little fear in the other guy's voice). He then tells Kalinda that he's determined to give Dylan a normal, safe childhood because [[DisappearedDad he didn't get one]].]]

* There are many parents who insist that their kids will not get privacy until they're old enough to live on their own, in order to be able to ensure they're not doing drugs, sexting, drinking, and also to be able to step in if their child is suicidal, hurting themselves, or otherwise suffering depression. [[http://www.peopleiwanttopunchinthethroat.com/2013/04/why-my-children-have-no-right-to-privacy.html Here's one of them.]]
