* The Deku King from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. When his daughter went missing trying to cleanse the poisonous waters of Woodfall Swamp, he was so angry and worried that he planned to torture the first suspicious character he came across, in this case a monkey. So focused was he on retribution that he never bothered to find out that the monkey was actually helping the Princess try to save Woodfall.

* ''Literature/MySistersKeeper'': Deconstructed with Sara. She's an unfailing {{Determinator}} in getting her oldest daughter, Kate, quality medical treatment for her severe leukemia. Unfortunately, that takes the form of exploiting her youngest daughter Anna as a source of genetic material to support Kate's health.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' pulls this one off in spectacular fashion: in comic [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0639.html #639]], after dealing with an Ancient Black Dragon who showed up to avenge her son [[DisproportionateRetribution in a brutal fashion]], [[spoiler:Vaarsuvius uses the spell Familicide on her, which kills not only her family, but the family members of her other family members, and so on ''ad infinitum''.]] One of the quote from this Trope's Quote page comes from the follow-up comic (and, it's worth pointing out, is directed towards the victim's severed head, ''reanimated solely for the purpose of delivering this monologue''). [[spoiler:V estimates that s/he killed a whole quarter of the black dragon population in the [=OotS=] universe.]] However, Karma lines up to give the perpetrator a kicking. [[spoiler:The power required to do it was acquired via a DealWithTheDevil, so V's soul is pledged to three separate Fiends]], and it's further revealed that included among the bloodline was [[spoiler: the family of Girard Draketooth, one of the legendary heroes who guards the gates imprisoning the Snarl.]] Perhaps most notably concerning this trope, though, [[spoiler:V's mate is so appalled at what s/he did that they file for divorce.]]

* Considering the fact that Goliath from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' comes from a ProudWarriorRace, you would EXPECT this of him regarding Angela, but the unique "not knowing your parents" communal-raising style of the Clans has him tempered somewhat. At least when he's not being empowered/corrupted by the Eye of Odin and ends up doing some.. Questionable things to "protect" her and Elisa. Then there was the time the Quarrymen almost killed her; [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge it wasn't pretty]].
* Pre Flanderization ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' had [[MamaBear Lois]] and [[PapaWolf Peter Griffin]] were kind of like this during the series' early days. During the early parts of the series, they could react violently to an idea of anything happening to their kids. For example, Peter (in his usual idiot self), assaulted his daughter's purse when she said she hated him, and Lois had [[LovableSexManiac Quagmire]] visit the bully who humiliated Meg in another episode. That shows how far they have fallen since the {{Flanderization}} [[AbusiveParents occured]]...

* Reverend Shaw of ''Film/Footloose'': after losing his son in a car crash, he goes full KnightTemplar and convinces the town council to enact draconian laws to ban, among other things, controversial books, rock music, and ''dancing'' so that his remaining daughter Ariel can grow up without the temptations Shaw believes led to his son's death.

** 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.
