Added DiffLines:

** Colette, daughter of the Master of Paris, is so far the straightest yet iteration of this trope, being the beautiful daughter of a (take a shot) MadScientist, who helps out the heroes - but ''not'' in defiance of her father, because the Master of Paris is on the good guys' side, [[GoodIsNotNice just rather stern.]] [[spoiler: Colette ends up ascending to the role of Master of Paris upon her father's death, and becomes a Mad Scientist in her own right.]]

* ''Manga/SoulEater'': Medusa's [[AmbiguousGender child]]) Chrona [[spoiler:joins the heroes, albeit unwillingly at first. They become affectionate towards Maka, and to a lesser extent the other protagonists, but are kidnapped back and driven (more) insane. They do eventually betray Medusa, but remain an antagonist until the end of the series.]]

* Jadis Diabolik of the ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'', in her first (chronological) appearance, even [[LampshadeHanging references this trope]]. It's one of her [[BerserkButton hot buttons]] that she's the daughter of the [[WellIntentionedExtremist infamous mass murderer]] [[MadScientist Dr. Diabolik]], and she has the Exemplar superpower, but she's isn't actually beautiful - she's plain, and elsewhere would be considered moderately attractive, but compared to all the other Exemplars running around, she feels incredibly ugly (plus, it hasn't been stated for certain that she is an Exemplar or if something her father did just mimics the effects). She is [[ACupAngst particularly sensitive]] about not having the MostCommonSuperpower, which is almost universal in female Exemplars (at lest those who don't get a BodyHorror result instead). Despite this, she did have a guy vying for her attention after she saved him from a smalltime super villain thug, and two others at Whateley (though one's a creep who imagines himself himself to a ComicBook/{{Batman}}-esque ByronicHero, and the other just wants favours from her father and the parents of the Bad Seeds).

* 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....
