** 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.]]

* Subverted with King Stefan in ''Film/{{Maleficent}}''. While he does order every spindle to be burned to prevent Princess Aurora from succumbing to the titular fairy's curse, as well as having the princess hidden away with the Three Good Fairies, it becomes clear rather early that Stefan's concern is not with Aurora so much as with keeping his power and proving himself superior to Maleficent. Notably, when Aurora returns to him as a teenager, he's too preoccupied with finally being able to defeat Maleficent that Aurora is nothing more than a thorn in his side.

* In [[Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse the Lunaverse]], the Luna Six eventually come to a realisation as tragic as it is horrifying: Corona isn't a megalomaniacal EvilOverlord who wants to TakeOverTheWorld ForTheEvulz, but rather a MamaBear of a PhysicalGod who wants to protect Equestria by any means necessary... even from itself.
