* Though not quite a mad scientist, Caldwell B. Cladwell's daughter (appropriately named Hope) in {{Urinetown}} certainly fits. It is often remarked upon how beautiful she is, she has no idea how cruel her father is, and, of course, falls in love with Bobby Strong. Also a good example of a DaddysGirl.

* Subverted in the short-lived {{MTV}} cartoon ''WesternAnimation/SpyGroove'' with Sierra Nevada, the daughter of a mad robotics genius/casino owner. Turned out ''she'' was the mad genius; daddy was just a robot she built to draw attention away from her while she played this trope to the hilt to fool do-gooders.

* The above two comic book examples both draw elements from Sax Rohmer's ''FuManchu'' mythos, including the Beautiful Daughter; however, Fu's own daughter Fah Lo Suee was a full-fledged FemmeFatale (or even [[TheVamp Vamp]]) rather than a cloistered innocent -- just as likely to turn against him, but because she wanted to take his job....

* Lampshaded in ''Series/DangerUXB'' when Lieutenant Ash delivers a defused bomb to Dr Gillespie and his daughter Susan, who are building a HeathRobinsonMachine in their backyard for steaming explosives out of unexploded German bombs. Ash later reports to his superiors on the phone, deriding the device as completely impractical and describing Gillespie as the proverbial MadScientist who even has a Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter said daughter has of course [[RightBehindMe just entered the room behind him]].

** Lackey's retelling of ''SwanLake'', ''Literature/TheBlackSwan'', makes Odile into one of these. Her father expects her to betray him, which is painfully ironic since she is a textbook example of a [[WellDoneSonGuy Well Done Daughter Girl]] -- the HeelFaceTurn starts because she starts actually spending time with the swans, instead of just looking down on them. The supernatural control, ie him using her as "Odette" ''without her permission'', is just the last straw that makes her realize his true character. [[spoiler: And her turning on him is hardly subtle - ''she's'' the one to kill him, after all.]]

* Farmer Brown from the ''BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode "Critters" can count as a Mad Scientist, seeing as he was using microbiology to create monstrous farm animals. And he did indeed have a beautiful daughter named Emmylou. She was also his enforcer, and was ''much'' stronger than her almost petite frame would appear, being more than a match for Batgirl. (She claimed it was due to beef steroids, clearly another of her dad's experiments.)

Added DiffLines:

* The title institution of ''TheSecretsOfDrearcliffGrangeSchool'' is basically a finishing school that turns mad scientist's beautiful daughters into femmes fatales to help them snag a good superhero (or villain) husband. While the viewpoint character ''isn't'' this trope, many of the other students have diabolical masterminds as children.

*** Not to mention, [[spoiler: when the Avatar gets possessed by Grima in the Bad Future, his/her children (save for poor [[DaddysLittleVillain Mor]][[OverlordJr gan]]) count as this.]]
