* The second season of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' reveals that Steven worries that the Crystal Gems may secretly blame him regarding the death of their leader, his mother Rose Quartz. Chances are he developed the notion after "Rose's Scabbard", in which Pearl yells at him for even suggesting that he could understand his mother's actions, almost lets him die, and openly wonders how much of her was left behind in him. Though in Pearl's case, it's somewhat {{Justified}} because it's the plain fact that her ''LoveInterest'' died giving birth to Steven.

Typically, this involves [[AbusiveParents being hated or otherwise ill-treated by their father]]. Other relatives are free to join in, though. Who's actually to blame for the death is completely irrelevant -- there's too many historical cases of DeathByChildbirth caused by doctor screw-ups (and ''Streptococcus pneumoniae''), but if this trope is in play the kid's still getting full blame. Keep in mind, this trope also applies for when only the child blames themself for "killing" their mother.

* In the backstory for ''Anime/LegendOfTheGalacticHeroes'', Oskar von Reuenthal's mother committed suicide when he was born because his [[DualityMotif distinctive two-tone eyes]] were living proof of her infidelity. Reuenthal spent his entire childhood being told by his father that life would have been better had he never been born, which very much warped his sense of self-worth.
