** Randy Marsh also has a tendency to get sloshed during the kids' sports games and instigating fights with the opposing team's dads. He makes a nemesis in "Batdad", a large, fat, shirtless dad in a Franchise/{{Batman}} cape and cowl.

* In ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes,'' K.O. gets into this kind of argument with a random LizardFolk bully, which stings because K.O. has a DisappearedDad (who apparently was some kind of Hero). [[ActionMom Carol]] does agree to go to the planned fight so that she and the bully's dad can talk reasonably and set a good example...but naturally he's not interested, and a fight ensues. (Oh, and the bully's dad [[{{Kaiju}} is about the size of a building]].)

* ZigZagged in ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit'''s FestivalEpisode: a boy from a band of nomads insults the Yogo Empire's emperor, which is naturally a sore spot for Chagum, [[KingIncognito a prince pretending to be a peasant]]. (His dad's [[OffingTheOffspring questionable choices]] do not dissuade Chagum's admiration.) The initial challenge is actually a battle between the two boys, which Chagum wins; however, when the boy won't take back his insult, and the boy's father won't force him, [[LadyOfWar Balsa]] (Chagum's [[ParentalSubstitute supposed]] [[GenderInverted mother]]) challenges the father, and of course, beats him.

* Hilariously subverted in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Chris brags to Meg how much smarter his dad is than Meg's, only for Meg to remind him they both have the same father.

* In the ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' novel series ''Warriors of Kerensky'', Kai Allard-Liao tells the story of how he got into a contest with a boy about this. Kai ended it by saying that his dad could kill the boy's dad. Since Justin Allard (Kai's dad) is one of the finest MechWarriors in the Inner Sphere, a respected war hero, a deep-cover spy, an all-around badass, and has killed men in an arena for sport on TV, this causes the boy to go home crying. Justin has a talk with his son after this.

This StockPhrase and its variants (my dad is stronger/faster/smarter/richer/better than yours) are a common BadassBoast between schoolyard kids. The implication is, of course, that {{Badass}} is InTheBlood. (Or that their Dads will get involved in any fight between them.) Any argument can lead to this, and actual physical violence may break out over it as well. A variation replaces "father" with other older male relatives like siblings or cousins for matter of availability (fathers would be thought to be working but older siblings or brothers may be available in school). Female relatives are rarely cited, ignoring {{Action Girl}}s and {{Action Mom}}s, but even with a whole BadassFamily, male examples are far more common.
