* ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'': Subverted with Ritsuko, who initially seems nice although cool and detached... but eventually reveals that she doesn't care at all about the pilots. She specifically loathes Rei.

* In ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'', the scientist starts out as a shadowy and [[ReluctantMadScientist possibly naive]] agent for the GovernmentConspiracy that the boys are afraid [[TheydCutYouUp just want to cut up E.T.]] But by the end of the movie, thanks to ThePowerOfLove, he falls in with the family to wish E.T. farewell as a FatherlyScientist instead of revealing their location, making it a FreeWilly scenario.

* Virstania, the self-styled Mother of Gargoyles in ''[[TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade Vampire: The Dark Ages]] - House Of Tremere.'' Having turned to the creation of golems and other artificial forms of life as an alternative to forming friendships with her fellow mages, Virstania was exhibiting signs of this trope ''long'' before she became a vampire. However, it wasn't until she helped Goratrix to create the first gargoyles that she proved herself a Motherly Scientist, lavishing maternal attention on the newborn creations and encouraging them to adopt her as their mother - which they did. Unfortunately, Virstania proves herself a dark play on this trope, for though she genuinely loves her gargoyles, she goes to horrifying extremes to ensure that they love her back: among other things, she has no problem with subjecting Alvusia, the gargoyle BabyFactory, to an eternity of painful impregnation and birth, nor does she have any qualms about taking the newborn gargoyles away from Alvusia and forcibly indoctrinating them into believing that Virstania is their mother ''and'' goddess, ensuring UndyingLoyalty from all of her "family."

* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'' subverted this with Ritsuko. She treats the pilots coldly and regards Rei as something less than human, and she even tried to destroy Rei’s spare bodies. However, after Rei covers up for her when Gendo questioned her, Ritsuko started treating the children a bit better.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfAnElderGod'': In contrast to her canon self, Ritsuko is a bit warmer, and she actually cares about the pilots. When some of them tell that they fear that they’ll become monsters, she states that she will not let it happen.

Added DiffLines:

* Ritsuko is more of a PromotedToParent Older Sister Scientist to Rei in ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'', because in a very real sense she really ''is'' Rei's sister, thanks to Naoko (allegedly) pulling some sort of BabyTrap on Gendo and substituting her own ova for Yui's. Naoko and Rei's relationship... [[OffingTheOffspring Was not an example,]] although it's strongly implied she [[MaternallyChallenged wasn't exactly parent of the year]] when Rits was a kid either.
