* A [[BearsAreBadNews literal]] MamaBear appears in {{mothy}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgL5xXH5zEM "Moonlit Bear"]], in which the protagonist, [[UnreliableNarrator Eve]] (portrayed by [[{{Vocaloid}} Miku]]), steals two "apples" from a bear, which then proceeds to chase her through the forest. Turns out that [[spoiler:the MamaBear is a human mother after all, and the two "apples" are actually her twin children, whom she is desperate to retrieve. Out of fear as well as her desire to have children of her own since hers are deceased, Eve ends up murdering the "bear"]].

* Kim from ''MissSaigon'' [[spoiler:shoots her own cousin who tries to kill her illegitimate son by an American GI]], yelling "I have no other choice, what I must do I will!" as she does so. A lot of people remember the part as a defining moment for Kim, especially with her screaming "YOU WILL NOT TAKE MY CHILD!" * The interpretation of Umbridge in ''AVeryPotterSequel'' likes to consider herself a mama bear InUniverse -- ""It's your Mama Umbridge's job to keep her baby bears safe!" However, she doesn't actually fulfill this role and just embarrasses the girls.

It was her baby, ladies and gentlemen, the child of her spirit, as real to her and as dear to her as though it had been, indeed, the flesh-and-blood creation of her body. For it was conceived in the beautiful ecstasy of spiritual passion, nurtured for long months in the dark, secret recesses of her soul, brought forth in an agony of travail. And as it lay nestling in her bosom, so to speak, Clark Redfield struck at it with his lethal weapon! And with the noble, unerring instinct of outraged maternity, she struck back--struck back at the would-be assassin of her baby. Could any mother, could any woman do less?"

* King Agamemnon's wife, Queen Clytemnestra, killed him because he had sacrificed their daughter Iphigenia to the gods. The fact that Agamemnon was [[YourCheatingHeart bringing his new mistress Cassandra home from the Trojan War]] probably [[WomanScorned did not help his case either]]. It's worth noting that Clytemnestra and her lover also tried to kill her son (by Agamemnon) Orestes when he was a small child, and treated the remaining daughter Electra poorly (and in some versions, tried to get her killed as well). [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope So she's not the best example of this trope]]. ** Well, part of her motivation for hating Agamemnon comes from his treatment of her children by her first husband -- in order to marry her, he invaded Mycenae, killed her husband, and dashed her baby's brains out against a wall. In front of her. With her father's blessing. So when he killed another one of her children, this time also one of his own, in pursuit of her perfect sister Helen, whose daughter was promised to Orestes by mutual agreement of the fathers, it's not as surprising that she got a little crazy. ** [[Music/BlindGuardian This is about a girl called Cassandra... about her royal suffering... and she's trapped]] '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYFFivxw56A UNDER THE ICE!!!]]''' ** There's also the thorny issue of the fact that the only person who says over and over that Clytemnestra treated Elektra poorly is [[UnreliableNarrator Elektra]] herself, particularly in the Sophoclean ''Elektra'' where she comes off as more than a little unhinged (one can interpret her as being downright psychopathic even). Aside from Orestes and Elektra, it's implied that the remaining daughter Chrysothemis is treated rather well.

spear, not distaff
The DistaffCounterpart is referred to as PapaWolf rather than "Papa Bear". {{Disneyfication}} aside, male bears are notoriously poor parents in the animal kingdom (infanticide among bears is the main reason why mama bears are so protective in the first place), whereas male (and female) wolves will react to their offspring being threatened in a very similar manner to mother bears.
