* "Mummy's Boy" was a strip that ran in the British comic ''ComicBook/Monster Fun'' (and later ''ComicBook/{{Buster}}''). The title character was forced to wear a bonnet and baby clothes and was pushed around in a pram by his overbearing mother, even though he was almost a teenager. Everything Boy wanted to do was "too dangerous", or "for bigger boys". The latest gadgets and games he yearned for were "too sharp" or "too difficult" for him he was hopelessly swaddled.

* Agnes Skinner in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', the TropeNamer. She shares an unhealthy relationship with his son which often borders on psychosis. When Seymour was out of the house, Agnes phoned him regularly demanding to be taken out of the bath, shielded from the glare of car lights on the street, and other such petty requests.

The greatest threat however, as perceived by the Smother, lies in the opposite sex. To a son, she will constantly preach that all women are [[GoldDigger Gold Diggers]] who are plotting towards a DivorceAssetsConflict, to a daughter that AllMenArePerverts who will leave her barefoot and pregnant, literally. Any LoveInterest that her son may attract will be immediately regarded as a rival for the son's love by the Beloved Smother, and the woman will be belittled, harassed and spied-on to varying degrees of obsession. (Hell, the Smother might actually have been through it herself.) If her son happens to break free and marry the woman he loves, then that unfortunate woman will find herself coping with the Mother-In-Law From Hell, who will be hyper-critical, dismissive and condemning of everything she does to the point where it may even break the marriage apart if her son doesn't do something to curtail his mother's interference.

** Electro also had a controlling mother who demeaned his intelligence, preventing him from following his dreams to become something like a scientist or an engineer, in order to keep him home with her and convinced him to get a rather lowly job at the local power company.
