** Baratheons just have this knack: Stannis has... the whole pack of Florents to deal with. On the plus-side, he doesn't have Robert's megaton issues with the crafty Lannisters. On the minus, they're more [[SmugsSnake tooth-grindingly arrogant]] for no reason and with less financial backing to help ease the pain.

* On ''Film/OverTheTop'', we have grandfather Jason Cutler, who hates Lincoln and [[JerkassHasAPoint while in the right that Lincoln (a simple trucker and estranged father) cannot provide to Michael in the way that he (a millionaire) can]], especially once Michael's mother dies and leaves Lincoln with the kid's custody, still tries to invoke ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney (trying to buy Lincoln off, hiring an army of lawyers to try to find a legal loophole to take Michael away from Lincoln), ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections and makes a continuous barrage of KickTheDog moments (every conversation he has with Lincoln including a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, ''keeping the letters Lincoln wrote to his family locked away and telling Michael that Lincoln never cared for him'' and '''hiring people to kidnap his grandson and rough Lincoln up''') on his single-minded quest to keep father and son apart.

Even after Lincoln signs off Michael's custody to Cutler, Cutler still flies to Las Vegas and tries to bribe Lincoln into disappearing forever from the Cutlers' sights, apparently because he disliked the fact that Michael disobeyed him to go cheer Lincoln at the arm wrestling competition.

* Inverted on ''TheGeorgeLopezShow''; George has issues with his biological mom, but gets along very well with his brother- and father-in-law, although initially, Angie's prominent cardiologist parents weren't too fond of George, feeling that Angie was "slumming it" and should have married somebody much more well-off.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic'': Glon's mother is more likely to side with his wives than him when a matrimonial problem shows up, since he's still kind of immature.

* 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).

Such in laws can also be a BitchInSheepsClothing or DevilInPlainSight if their relative is oblivious to their jerkishness, or insists that they aren't so bad. Sometimes overlaps with CoattailRidingRelative. See also EvilMatriarch, LoveObstructingParents.

** 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]]).

** 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.

* Patty and Selma from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' (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.
** Zigzagged for Homer's father, Abe. He's obnoxious, but indiscriminately so. By normal standards he gets on well with Marge (if still frequently irritates her) and even tried to court her mother.
