In the revived ''Series/DoctorWho'', series we meet Rose's father, an amateur inventor and entrepreneur, who underneath his irresponsible façade is actually a heroic man. (Similar to [[spoiler:the Doctor]], whom she falls in love with over time.))
** River Song has been shown to have a thing for strong men dressed in Roman Centurion uniforms. We eventually find out that her father is [[spoiler:Rory Williams, who was resurrected as a centurion and then spent ''two thousand years'' guarding the tomb of his fiance (River's mother), which earned him a place in myth as the Last Centurion]]. When he shows up at [[CardboardPrison the Stormcage]], River initially mistakes him for a guard dressed as a centurion, and notes that they normally don't listen to her suggestions.

** Shikamaru Nara's mother Yoshino is [[{{Tsundere}} obstinate and rough but also has a sweet side]], similarly to Temari, his final opponent in the Chunin Exam and most frequent ally outside the Konoha 11 since. He and Temari [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend deny any relationship]] despite [[EveryoneCanSeeIt being seen together so much]]. [[spoiler: They're HappilyMarried with a son in the epilogue]].
** Naruto's father Minato is very briefly shown thinking that Sakura reminds him of Naruto's mother Kushina, who earlier remarked that Naruto should marry a girl like herself. Kushina actually didn't make it clear on what exactly she meant, but presumably she meant a FieryRedhead with a HotBlooded personality, and the pink-haired HotBlooded {{Tsundere}} Sakura matches that. Ultimately, Naruto [[OneTrueLove truly falls in love]] with and gets HappilyMarried to [[spoiler:Hinata, a ShyBlueHairedGirl]]. Creator/MasashiKishimoto [[WordOfGod has repeatedly stated]] that he deliberately {{Invoked|Trope}} these comparisons as a RedHerring to [[TrollingCreator mess with the shippers]].
*** In spite of all that, this trope ''is'' still Played Straight, because Kushina ''does'' bear similarities to Naruto's [[spoiler:future wife Hinata]]. While [[spoiler:Hinata]] matches Minato [[NiceGuy in personality]]--meaning that she fits this trope with him as well--Kushina and [[spoiler:Hinata]] both went through a lot of the same life events and share certain hobbies: Both have unique hair colors that match their respective personalities, albeit with [[HeroesWantRedheads completely]] [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair different]] hair colors and [[FieryRedhead completely]] [[ShyBlueHairedGirl different]] personalities. Both were bullied as children because of a physical feature of theirs; Kushina, her red hair and [[spoiler:Hinata, her Byakugan eyes]]. Both were kidnapped by Kumo ninja when they were younger because of the powers they possessed. Both were NotAfraidToDie to protect Naruto because of their love for him. [[TextileWorkIsFeminine Both enjoy knitting scarves]]. Both fell in love with their husbands in the same way: RescueRomance. The RedStringOfFate was utilized in both rescue scenarios. Both also fell in love with their husbands partly because [[SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan they are good men]]. Both attracted the attentions of [[AmazonChaser their husbands]] because they are {{Action Girl}}s. Both are considered {{Supreme Chef}}s by their husbands. Finally, both are considered very beautiful by their husbands partly because of their [[RapunzelHair long flowing hair]].
*** Also, this trope manages to be {{Gender Inverted|Trope}} as well. To elaborate, Naruto matches Kushina [[HotBlooded in personality]], while, as stated above, [[spoiler:his future wife Hinata]] matches ''Minato'' in personality: Both are quiet ninjas who are [[NiceGuy nice people]], and [[SingleTargetSexuality have always loved]] their boisterous counterpart [[ChildhoodFriendRomance since they were young children]]. Given that all of the {{Official Couple}}s in the Narutoverse, including Kushina and Minato, embody OppositesAttract, [[spoiler:[[FridgeBrilliance this actually explains why Naruto and Hinata work as a couple]]]].
** The sequel manga ''Manga/{{Boruto}}'' has a moment in which after [[spoiler:Naruto and Hinata's son]], Boruto [[spoiler:Uzumaki]], makes a DeclarationOfProtection to [[spoiler:Sasuke and Sakura's daughter]], Sarada [[spoiler:Uchiha]] ([[ShipTease making her blush]]), he then declares that he wants to become a ninja "like her father", which makes her blush ''even more'', and making her think how cool he looks.

* ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'': Discussed between Jax and his actual mother Gemma no less. When she sees him hooking up with the [[MissKitty female brothel manager]] of Diosa International (who is slightly older than most of the girls working in the place), Gemma refers to her as "Miss Mommy Fetish". Jax replies that if he actually had any hang-ups about [[EvilMatriarch Gemma]], he'd be attracted to a psycho dominatrix instead. Besides, NO WAY does he ever want to hear the words "mommy fetish" coming out of the mouth of his own mother.
