* Murray Goldberg from ''Series/TheGoldbergs'' didn't get along with his father-in-law at first, though he eventually warms up to him. It's his biological father that he's on poorer terms with, however.

** Patty and Selma (and their mother to a lesser extent) hate Homer so much they've nonchalantly reacted to his heart attack then proceeded to find Marge a man despite the fact he hadn't died, bought a tombstone with "Homer J. Simpson. We are richer for having lost him.", tried to get him kicked out of town, and kidnap/torture him during his renewal of his vows with Marge. This doesn't even include the verbal insults. Obviously, this is [[DependingOnTheWriter depending on the episode]]. In one episode, Selma thanks Homer for helping her get Ling (her Chinese adopted baby), and Marge's mother didn't really get angry and actually said that Patty and Selma were evil. Selma is more often the more civil one and Patty even asked Homer to perform her wedding after he became an ordained minister.

* A man is vacationing in the Middle East with his wife's family. While in Jerusalem, his mother-in-law dies. He goes to the American consulate to arrange for the body to be transported back to the States for burial, where the consul informs him that it would be much cheaper to just bury her in Jerusalem. The man insists that the body be returned to the States. The consul comments that he must love her very much, but the man replies that he once heard of a case where [[{{Jesus}} someone buried in Jerusalem rose from the dead three days later]], and he didn't want to take that chance.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', Mary Jane's aunt Anna has nothing but bad things to say about Peter in spite of the fact that Peter was never anything but courteous towards her. She sets out to find fault in every little thing he says/does. At one point she sics ''ThePunisher'' on him! (Albeit unintentionally.) Thankfully it's mostly averted by her comicbook counterpart whom is basically a more grounded version of Aunt May (and helped May set them up in the first place).

She just happened to believe that Peter had ''something'' to do with MJ's disappearance and voiced this concern to Frank and she happened to be RightForTheWrongReasons: it ''was'' Peter's fault, because she was collateral damage to one of his fights as Spidey. But, once again, Anna didn't knew that--she's only thinking Peter's to blame for no good reason other that her own immense distrust of him.)

** Lois' father isn't too fond of Peter, either, to the point that he even lied in court when Peter was accused of murdering Lois ([[spoiler:in Stewie's simulation]]). Before her death Lois' Aunt Marguerite was apparently so mean, a visit from her was an OhCrap moment for Peter.

** Lois' father isn't too fond of father, Carter, runs away with this trope as far as his relationship with Peter, either, to the point that he even lied in court when Peter was accused of murdering Lois ([[spoiler:in Stewie's simulation]]). Other points of cruelty include putting out his cigar in his chest, forcing him to eat a pine cone while ostensibly saying it's to help Lois and forcing him to ''[[{{Squick}} drink his diabetic blood]]'' ([[ManipulativeBastard and then being absolutely amazed that he actually did it.]]) Before her death death, Lois' Aunt Marguerite was apparently so mean, a visit from her was an OhCrap moment for Peter.

* One of the funniest examples is in ''DragonsLair II: Time Warp''. The ''entire'' first level has Dirk trying to escape Daphne's mother (who resembles [[BrawnHilda a retired opera star]]... boy, even her name is Hilda!). She starts chasing Dirk with a rolling pin after she finds out that he let Daphne get kidnapped again. If the player presses the wrong button, Dirk can actually get ''killed'' by her! Dirk runs away from her on a horse, but she starts following him on an ''ox'', trying to bash the living daylights out of him while telling him to go rescue Daphne.
