At ''very'' least, he's sent his adoptive kid the Avatar in missions [[TheUriahGambit that would end up in his/her death]].

** King Desmond tries to kill his own son [[TheUnfavourite Zephiel]] by hiring assassins ([[BigDamnHeroes which you have to stop]]). Aside from jealousy and just being RoyallyScrewedUp, Desmond hates Zephiel for being a child from an unhappy ArrangedMarriage and the one to inherit his throne. He would rather have his [[ParentalFavoritism beloved child]] with a mistress inherit, but little cute Princess Guinevere is both younger and, well, a girl. Zephiel's mother Hellene doesn't help the situation by using this as a big TakeThat against her husband.

*** Subverted by [[spoiler: the Avatar's mother/Azura and the Hoshidan siblings's ParentalSubstitute, Queen Mikoto, in the GoldenPath: she says she wants her kids to die with her, but in reality she CameBackWrong thanks to Anankos. The ''real'' Mikoto died in an HeroicSacrifice to save the Avatar, and once she's defeated in battle she passes on in peace.

* Another one, is the founding of UsefulNotes/TheRomanRepublic, Lucius Brutus (a supposed ancestor to ''that'' [[EtTuBrute Brutus]]) toppled the Tarquin Kings and established a republic, however he had to snuff out a royalist counter-revolution. The problem was his own sons decided to side with the enemy and were captured and revealed to be traitors. To prove his own republican virtue and emphasize how committed he was, he ordered the execution of his own sons.
