A girl's boyfriend or father just lavishes love, attention and gifts on her. Especially gifts. [[EverythingsSparklyWithJewelry Jewelry]], dresses, [[PrettyInMink fur coats]], vacations, and it all seems to come from... Um, wait, hold on a second. Where does he afford that?

** Though the family knows that he's really, ''really'' law abiding...and therefore just has him "help" without his knowledge, like in the start of Son of the Mob 2 where they switched his "clothes for college" suitcase with an identical one containing ill-gotten money so he'd unknowingly take it across state lines for them (leading to a switch at an airport that caused mass chaos). He and his innocent (but also an FBI agent's daughter) love interest are not happy. His best friend thought it was cool and wanted to keep "their take."

* Ada Shelby of ''Series/PeakyBlinders''. Rather usually, she's not a gangster's ''daughter'', but rather some gangsters' sister and niece. She doesn't want to be one, but she is. Lampshaded by Freddie.

* In indie game ''Hot Dog King'', you can hire the daughter of a mafia boss for free, mistreat her by overwork or by making her wear clothes she feel uncomfortable in and well...lets just say your empire will fall...

* Midori, a character exclusive to Chie's route in ''VisualNovel/KiraKira'', is one of these, but she doesn't get along with her parents and repeatedly runs away from home. Even once she's made her own life for herself, though, she still has yakuza minions doing her bidding...

* ''Anime/{{Kizuna}}'' has a pair of {{Rare Male Example}}s, since a {{Yakuza}} clan from Kyoto is very involved in the plot:
** Kai Sagano is the spoiled and HotBlooded heir to said Yakuza clan. This deeply fucks up with his life, since he's just a teenager and knows jack shit about what to actually do.
** [[spoiler: Kei Enjouji, aka the {{seme}} of the story, finds out after his mother's death that his mom once was the lover of a yakuza... who also happens to be Kai's father. He is '''not''' happy.]]

* Genderflipped and subverted in the ''Manga/{{Bokurano}}'' TV series. [[spoiler: Jun Ushiro's birth father Ichiro was a Yakuza heir, but after he was murdered by his enemies, little Ushiro's mother (Miho Satou aka Misumi Tanaka) left him with her middle-class cousin to protect him.)]]

* Yukio Washimine from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' deconstructs the trope to Hell and back. Her people didn't want her to sacrifice her normal life to take over (and some of her "followers", like Chaka, even try to get her dead or sold into {{sex slave}}ry), she can barely keep up with other mafia factions, [[spoiler:and both she and her protector Ginji end up dead.]]

* A couple girls from Semyon's family - his granddaughters - get plenty of attention in ''EasternPromises''. Not as extreme of an example as some of the others here, but the way they're treated is used for a stark contrast with [[spoiler:how Semyon and the ''rest'' of his [[TheMafiya family]] treat women, even implicitly children who may be his granddaughters' ages.]]

* A plot point in ''Literature/RonjaTheRobbersDaughter'' is the titular character finding out that she is a robber's daughter - and what exactly "robber" means. [[spoiler:This is one of the reasons she runs away from home. In the end, [[HappilyEverAfter she finds a better source of income.]]]]

* In ''Time to Depart'', by Creator/LindseyDavis, crime boss Balbinus Pius is given 'time to depart'- he is exiled from Rome and its territories. However, a power vacuum creates in his absence, and a new boss emerges- his son-in-law, married to his daughter, the Mafia Princess Balbina Milvia, who ends up having an affair with the main character's best friend... who happens to be the guy who exiled her father. Oops. He almost loses his job, and his life at that.

* Akira Mimasaka's little sisters in the j-Drama continuity of ''HanaYoriDango''. Also, Akira himself could possibly be considered a male version of the trope; while he knows his parents are Yakuza bosses, he never seems to suffer any negative consequences or have any participation in the less palatable aspects of the family business and has large enough prestige and access to money and luxury goods to make him one of the four most wealthy and powerful students at a school that (with one exception) has no students that ''aren't'' fabulously rich.

* Princess was even ''EastEnders''' Den Watt's famous pet name for his adopted daughter Sharon whom he spoiled rotten. Den wasn't exactly a gangster but had a habit of being used as something of a {{buttmonkey}} for the local Firm. He ends up being shot by the Firm and Sharon is left grieving only to have her dad [[BackFromTheDead come back to life]] fourteen years later, having just faked his death to hide from the Firm all along. [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Hello Princess]] indeed. His love-child Vicky may also qualify, at least in the 80's when Den [[TheUnfavourite actually loved both his daughters]].
