* ''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.

* She might be the eldest sister instead of the mother, but LadyOfWar Fiora from ''FireEmblem 7'' shows some Smother traits in her supports with her little sister, ShrinkingViolet Florina, [[PromotionToParent whom she had to raise]].

* 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!).

* [[Comicbook/MsMarvel2014 The new Ms. Marvel]] has this problem to contend with in addition to getting her powers out of the blue: having grown up in a Muslim household, Kamala has problems trying to juggle her family life and coming to grips with her new skillset. Since the girl is too frightened to outright tell her family what happened, her mother immediately assumes she's becoming a degenerate and is constantly reaming on her shirking her responsibilities. Her father is more understanding (as he thinks she just feels stifled at her age), but no less strict, and her brother, while being fervently religious to the point of openly denouncing the father's profession as a banker, just prefers to remain neutral.

Eventually, however, Kamala's parents figure out her secret and accept it, since they know she is out doing good for the people around her.

Compare/contrast OverprotectiveDad and FantasyForbiddingFather. If it's a more action-based series where the offspring being "smothered" is in trouble and the Smother is an ActionMom, see MamaBear. If the mom was a child star and pushes her kid into stardom, she's a StageMom. May lead to [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the Old Women Out.]]

You probably know her. You might even ''be'' her, especially if you have a son. Mothers who are a bit too... controlling. Often (but certainly not always), they are the mothers of sons, and for whatever reasons can have a bit of trouble cutting the apron strings; as a result, no matter how old the boy (or, for added humor value, man) is, he'll be [[MeddlingParents mothered relentlessly]], his mother absolutely smothering him with parental affection... and authority. Using either carrot or stick (sometimes both), his mother will go to any lengths to make sure that, whether he wants to or not, he's not going to be leaving his mother's embrace any time soon. Any attempts on his part will usually result in a passive-aggressive guilt trip for trying to break away and do his own thing. Her poor son, as a result of such domination and badgering, usually ends up a MommasBoy. A lot of these mothers are {{Jewish|Mother}} for some reason, though they are also oftentimes Catholic, serving double-duty as a conduit for [[RaisedCatholic Catholic Guilt]].
