*** Lois... sorta. The 'Beloved' part is questionable, but there is a line of dialog stating that he's not escaping her influence for a LONG time.
---> 'When I pick you a wife I'll let her give you your precious space.'

Lois treats Malcolm (and only Malcolm, much to his frustration) this way. Her attempts to help him reach his full potential run the gamut from embarrassing (see "Malcolm Visits College") to insane (see the quote below):

--> '''FLORINA:''' Thanks, Fiora. But...I... I have to do it my way. You can handle it out there alone, right? Well I need to make sure that I can, too.
--> '''FIORA:''' Oh... But I worry about you. When we were in training, you used to get so scared...
--> '''FLORINA:''' Yeah, but I'm fine now.
--> '''FIORA:''' Really? But the Caelin Knights are all men, aren't they? I just think of you, all timid and scared among them... So, Florina... You really don't mind it? Didn't they give you a hard time for being a woman? Now if they did, I want you to let me know. Because I will tell them a thing or two...
--> '''FLORINA:''' I-I'm fine. Lady Lyndis took good care of me... And everyone was really nice...
--> '''FIORA:''' Oh? Well, I still worry.

* ''Manga/SkipBeat'': A major character's mother is very overprotective to the point that [[spoiler: Kuon, as he was called by birth, runs away to Japan and becomes Ren Tsuruga to escape her influence.]]
** Cite this, please? While both parents tended to dote, his father is the especially intense one, and the move to Japan had nothing to do with his mother at all. Pretty much every related issue, in fact, had ''something'' to do with his father, even if it was only being part-Japanese. Only his slightly-disordered eating relates to his mother so far; she [[LethalChef couldn't cook]] and made him eat it anyway.



* ''Anime/PrettyCureAllStars New Stage 3'' centers on Maamu, a Tapir who [[WellIntentionedExtremist just wants to protect her son Yumeta's happiness]] by trapping kids in a dream world so they can play with Yumeta forever. It takes every Cure from the series up to that point [[labelnote:*]]Except for [[Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure Cure Flower]], [[Anime/HappinessChargePrettyCure Cure Fortune, and the international teams]][[/labelnote]] to convince her that her methods are having the opposite result.

* In VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening, Brady criticises his mother [[spoiler: Maribelle]] for having been this. It's less because he hates her (in fact he ''adores'' his mom), and more because he [[DeclarationOfprotection wants to be the one protecting her instead]] [[spoiler: since he comes from a BadFuture ''where she died and he couldn't save her'']]

*** When the group are discussing how their lives would be if they hadn't met Sheldon, Howard imagines himself living alone and caring for his mother's corpse, a la [[Film/{{Psycho}} Norman Bates]].
--->'''Amy:''' Wait, did she die or did you kill her?\\
'''Howard:''' Meh, to-may-to, to-mah-to, the important thing is she's dead.

** Amy's mother as well, she apparently used to lock her in a "sin closet" as a child. When Amy gets her ears pierced as an adult, she makes Amy sit in Penny's closet.

* ''Film/XMen'': Although Charles is Raven's foster brother in ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', he tends to behave more like her ParentalSubstitute (this is confirmed in ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' when he tells Erik that he had "raised" her). Xavier is so overprotective of his sister that it had stifled Raven's psychological growth as an adult, and she resents his pushiness to the point where they become estranged. Erik reminds Charles that the latter "...grew up with her. She couldn't stay a little girl forever, that's why she left." By the end of ''Days of Future Past'', Xavier finally accepts that Raven is her own person and stops trying to influence her.

** In a more general sense, Professor X doesn't encourage those who are closest to him to be fully independent as adults. Although most of his students eventually leave the school after graduation and assimilate into human society, those who are part of the X-Men never "leave the nest," so to speak. They stay together as a surrogate family while living under Xavier's roof, working as teachers, and Charles continues to exert his paternal authority over them even when they're roughly 57 years old (as shown with Jean Grey, Cyclops and Storm in the AlternateTimeline 2023 scene of ''Days of Future Past''--heck, Beast would be around 80!).
