** And on the flipside, there was the infamous StageMom who sought out a ''hitman'' to kill her daughter's cheerleading rivals - thankfully the man she approached went to the cops over it.

* Despite typically being cold and dismissive toward his daughter Hinata, Hiashi Hyuga of ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' has some hallmarks of this, like when he activated his brother's curse seal merely because he sensed that he was considering harming Hinata.

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 necessary is a KnightTemplarBigBrother, which is an extreme version of BigBrotherInstinct. For Knight Templar Parents minus the KnightTemplar part, see GoodParents.

* Lucretia, a Roman nobleman, was the [[ProperLady most virtuous woman in Rome]]. As a result [[FridgeLogic of this offense]] the Etruscan prince ruling Rome raped her. She went before her husband and father and [[HonorRelatedAbuse committed suicide]]. In their rage they took a blood oath and then gathered all the good citizens of Rome to join them. Whereupon they decided to act [[ThisMeansWar as good Romans should.]]
* Adam Hauptman of the ''Literature/MercyThompson'' novels can be like this with his teenage daughter, Jesse. When Jesse is beat up at school because her father is a werewolf, she refuses to tell her father who it was, because if he knew, he would kill them.
* Sara in ''Literature/MySistersKeeper''. Sara had a child (Anna) ''specifically'' so it would be a perfect tissue match for her middle daughter Kate, who has severe leukemia. She also neglects her older son Jesse once it is found out he is not a genetic match for Kate. After Kate's kidneys fail, Sara and her husband want to use Anna's kidneys. Anna deciding, she's had enough [[spoiler: and sues them for medical emancipation. ''With Kate's blessing''.]]

** 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!"''

*** 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.]]
