** 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.
