** Wrath from the [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist 2003 adaptation]] is a villainous example. He is Izumi's still-born son and thus has deep mother issues once he regains his memories. He thinks she abandoned him and hates her for it. Wrath is drawn to Sloth, [[spoiler:who was born from the failed resurrection of Trisha and thus looks exactly like her,]] and even [[spoiler:glues themselves together just before she dies]] however in the end he does recognize Izumi is his mother. A [[WhatCouldHaveBeen deleted scene]] from ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemistTheConquerorOfShamballa'' had a {{tearjerker}} scene where he meets up with her [[spoiler:right when she dies.]]. In the final product he [[spoiler:ends up TogetherInDeath with her when he dies]].

* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' has a few, in a number of flavours. In the outright creepy corner, we have Robert "Sweetrobin" Arryn and his Epic-class MyBelovedSmother Lysa--this pair manage one of the most horrible takes on the trope you'd ever hope not to meet--the poor boy is so smothered, his ''physical'' health is directly impacted, not just his mental. In the mixed-bag section, we have Cersei Lannister and her two boys. One isn't what you'd expect in a typical [[DeconstructedTrope Momma's Boy]] at all, except she went out to emotionally cripple our [[StupidEvil implusive]] [[RoyalBrat Joffrey]] quite handily. Tommen, however... is the trope played both sweetly and very, very straight. For more marginal examples, there are Brandon Stark and Samwell Tarly. Deliberate it wasn't in either case, but they're both their mothers' darlings. Thankfully, they are among the most lightly smothered you'll find still kind of meeting this trope. And, as far as Sam is concerned, it's unclear how much is actually a case of "''really'' didn't get along with [[AbusiveParents Monster Dad]], so had only one other option". Most of their sufferings have little to do with this trope, in fact. There are a few more knocking about the series, both in the backstory and the main one, but these are the big ones.

* Gohan and Goten in ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. In ''Anime/DragonBallGT'', Goten is nearly thirty and still living with Mom, while Gohan is pushing forty and lives right next-door with his wife and daughter. Chichi is overly strict with Gohan and seems to have realized her mistakes and been overly lenient with Goten, but both sons love her dearly.

* In ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', Percy Jackson adores his mother and would do anything for her. This is portrayed in a very positive light and doesn't detract from his badassness at all, as she raised him single-handedly after his [[ParentalAbandonment dad left]] and the first book has him protecting her from his abusive stepfather. It also helps that his mom is a kind, selfless and all-round awesome person. Their closeness really stands out from the other demigods' less positive relationship with their parents.
