Added DiffLines:

* A downplayed example in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Toph Beifong seems to be something like this her son-in-law, Baatar Sr. (the husband of her younger daughter, Suyin Beifong). Toph at least doesn't like it when Baatar tries calling her "mother" (and makes this extremely clear to her son-in-law).

* Alicia Florrick in ''Series/TheGoodWife'' does not like her mother-in-law. This is demonstrated by the fact that the ring tone allocated to her on her cell phone is the music from ''TheTwilightZone''.

* In ''Literature/TheSixSwans'', the mother-in-law kidnaps her grandchildren at birth and each time smears the mother's mouth with blood to claim that she killed and ate them.them. She intends to have the girl [[BurnTheWitch burned at the stake]] for infanticide, taking advantage of her being an ElectiveMute. [[spoiler: The titular Swans pull a BigDamnHeroes to save their sister and, after the curse is undone, the girl explains what actually happened. The mother-in-law returns the still-living babies and is executed]]


Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/{{Oshin}}'', Ryuuzo's parents Daigoro and Kiyo detest their daughter-in-law [[UptownGirl since she's a mere country girl whereas they have a higher standing]]. Daigoro more or less gives in when Ryuuzo says that he'll marry Oshin ''but'' will refuse to have a mistress at the same time, but Kiyo keeps interferring and making Oshin's life harder -- especially when she and Ryuuzo are forced to live with them after the 1923 Kanto Earthquake. [[spoiler: When Oshin leaves to work in another city and communicates with Ryuuzo through letters, Kiyo [[INeverGotAnyLetters hides the correspondence]] to trick Oshin into thinking that Ryuuzo has ditched her -- but the deception is ultimately undone and Ryuuzo is, understandably, ''[[CallingTheOldManOut furious]]''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted in ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}''. Hori's entire family considers Miyamura an honorary member of their family, with her mother and little brother having felt that way even before they started dating (and the only reason her father didn't is because he didn't meet Miyamura until right before their RelationshipUpgrade). There have even been times where Hori has to remind her family that ''she's'' the one dating Miyamura, not them.

* Suzu's sister-in-law Keiko in ''Manga/InThisCornerOfTheWorld'', the only member of the Houjou family who isn't very welcoming towards Suzu after she marries Shuusaku. She's constantly criticizing Suzu for her clumsiness and absent-minded nature. She later warms up to Suzu over time, and admits that she was harsh because she was a bit jealous of Suzu for having a lot more personal freedom and yet choosing to stay with the Houjou family.
