*''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': Sathel is much more open to the idea of Tiza dating Nolien than her husband. For comparison, she will try to maneuverer Nolien into complimenting Tiza while her husband gives him a death glare that can be felt through a blindfold.

Fathers in anime, and often in {{Sitcom}}s, tend to be [[strike: borderline]] homicidal in protecting the celibacy and chastity of their daughters. To these endearingly [[OverprotectiveDad overprotective fathers]], their daughters will ''always'' be their little girls; for a boy to even hold hands with her, much less take her FirstKiss or give her heavy petting, is as bad as rape in his eyes. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown God help you]] if you are caught in bed with her]], even if its NotWhatItLooksLike.

An increasingly common subtrope of DotingParent. Mothers who follow this trope enthusiastically play matchmaker and offer invaluable assistance, such as dressing her up for dates, setting up these dates (which will often include a keepsake from ''her'' mother for luck), offering advice to the would be knight in shining armor on her likes and hobbies, or setting up situations that will bring the two young lovebirds closer together.

And woe betides the invariably HenpeckedHusband of the wife who follows this trope if he persists on his fascist crusade of chastity; a MegatonPunch or two or [[MaximumFunChamber quietly dragging him off to a corner for a "nice long talk"]] on part of the missus will usually remove his obstruction to the romance in question.

If this trope occurs in a Western program, the daughter may resent her mom's well-meaning meddling even more than her dad's attempts to keep her from having a love life at all.

* Even if the fearsome [[strike: crime boss]] businessman Nogizaka Gento wants his little girl [[LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu Nogizaka Haruka]] to stay "pure" forever, his very "convincing" wife, Akiho, isn't going to have any of that, oh no...

* George Banks in ''Film/FatherOfTheBride'' is an example of this throughout the entire movie and into the sequel. He hates the idea of his daughter getting married, dislikes her fiance the moment he meets him and continues to do so despite the young man's many attributes--a nice guy with good looks/education/job/family, and when his daughter announces her pregnancy, is further incensed and completely convinced that the young man somehow took advantage of her. Needless to say, his wife's feelings are the complete opposite of his.
* Pam's mom in ''Film/MeetTheParents'' is supportive of her daughter's relationship with Gaylord Focker, as opposed to her frighteningly KnightTemplarParent of a CIA-Agent Dad Jack.
* Averted in ''Film/TenThingsIHateAboutYou''. The father (partly because he is a gynecologist for teenage mothers) is obsessed with keeping his daughters pure, but being widowed, there is no wife/mother to help him out and assure him that things are ok. Left to himself he goes somewhat overboard with this trope.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'' 2. In the sequel, Gru's (adopted) daughter Margo falls in love with a boy named Antonio, and Gru goes berserk. It's this trope at first, but it turns out that [[spoiler: Antonio is a womanizer, or at least the kid-friendly version of a womanizer, and thus has no serious commitment to Margo. So Gru was actually justified in being suspicious of Antonio, although he was "right for the wrong reason" since Gru didn't actually know Antonio was a womanizer at the time.]]
