* The non-canon ''Anime/HaloLegends'' episode "Odd One Out": She tells her kids to wash their hands and has enough intelligence to completely control an UNSC frigate, and turns out to be [[spoiler:a rampant military-grade AI]]. Meet "Mama". And [[MamaBear one heck of a mama]], indeed: If you dare mess with her kids, she'll '''kick your ass''' into a rift in space-time. [[spoiler: [[LiteralMetaphor Yes, literally.]]]]

* Dr. Catherine Halsey of ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', creator of the [[SuperSoldier SPARTAN-II]] program, was much of a mother figure towards the [[TykeBomb Spartan children]] while at the same time administering the augmentations that killed or permanently disabled most of them. Worthy of note, however, is that her motherly treatment of them when not subjecting them to painful augmentations is believed to be a major contributor to the emotional stability of the [=SPARTAN-IIs=] compared to the [=SPARTAN-IIIs=]. She is rather disturbed when Cortana, an artificial intelligence who is based on Halsey's brain, admits that she finds John-117 (Master Chief) attractive. Halsey realizes that this means her feelings towards John aren't entirely maternal.

After researching a non-human subject for a while and giving it a name, the doctor's nurturing instincts finally kicks in, causing the doctor to form a mother/father-child bond with the [[InnocentAliens poor little thing]] until the eventual decision to free the subject. If she met the creature in the jungle, and there are more of them, she could become a NatureHero. Can turn into "{{Tarzan}} And Jane" if the subject is biologically and age-compatible with her. If by contrast, the subject isn't biologically compatible and the scientist needs to separate, it ends up with a TearJerker goodbye.
