* Subverted by ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'': Raine is Ellone's mother figure, but her bond with Laguna (Raine's main squeeze, basically.) is much weaker. However, after she gets kidnapped by the Estharians, Laguna goes Always Save The Girl, daughter-style.

** This is also largely the case in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', which also has children tied to the mothers (with the exception of [[TheHero Chrom]] and the [[PlayerCharacter Male Avatar]]). ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' inverts this, where the children are tied to their fathers (again, with the exception of Azura and the [[PlayerCharacter Female Avatar]]. Both games do make a point of giving the children [[RelationshipValues supports]] with the parent they aren't tied to, however.

* This is the subject of an argument between Tim and Jill in an episode of ''Series/HomeImprovement'', where Jill thinks ''she'' should be the one to talk to a suddenly withdrawn and quiet Mark because of the special tie mothers have to their children. Tim thinks she's being ridiculous and insists he can handle the situation just fine. The trope is subverted in the end: Mark ''does'' talk to Jill about the problem (he [[UnwantedGlasses needs glasses]]), but only because nobody else was at home.
