Sadly, [[TruthInTelevision there have been many cases of real-life parents]] -- both mothers and fathers -- who murder their own children. In case you are wondering, the technical therm for this kind of murder is "filicide".

* ''VideoGame/TheWitchsHouse'' has a particularly evil one. [[spoiler:Viola's father runs towards the titular house and sees his daughter leaving it, with the witch right behind her. Wanting to protect her, he shoots the witch twice and runs home with his daughter... only, the True Ending reveals that the bodies have long been switched. Viola's father shot his own daughter, in the witch's body. And he doesn't even know.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[UsefulNotes/ThreeKingdomsShuWeiWu Liu Bei]] did this to his adopted son Liu Feng, after the latter both failed to aid the general Guan Yu and was unable to hold on to his newly conquered territory. To be fair to Liu Feng, he didn't have the forces necessary to aid Guan Yu, and he was both outnumbered and betrayed from within when he tried to defend his territory. Liu Feng was also a potential future rival to Liu Bei's blood-related son Liu Shan (he had gained a reputation for being a reliable and capable military commander, while Shan had no real accomplishments to his name), and so there is a strong argument that Liu Bei decided to take Feng's failures as an opportunity to nip a potential succession crisis in the bud.

* Ragyo Kiryuin from Anime/KillLaKill has one of the more strange cases of this trope, as when she's not trying to kill her children, along with the rest of the world, she is molesting and at points just having sex with them.

This trope goes back to [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]] with {{Hesiod}}'s ''Literature/{{Theogony}}'', and even further to the Mesopotamian creation story ''Literature/EnumaElish''. [[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do with]] Music/TheOffspring or OffingTheMouth. OutlivingOnesOffspring is when the child dies for reasons that are not the parent's fault.

* ''VideoGame/TrinitySoulsOfZillOll'' begins with the EvilOverlord hearing a prophecy from his [[TheDragon trusted oracle]] that he would be killed by his own grandson. The Evil Overlord responds by immediately having his pregnant daughter killed. Not long afterwards though, he finds out that his son fathered two half-elven children in secret, and he leads his troops to attack the village of the elves and kill ''everyone'' there just to be sure. When his son, upon hearing his father's plans, rebels and attempts to rescue his wife and children, the Evil Overlord personally kills him and then spends the next decade desperately searching for the two grandsons who got away. Naturally, one of the grandsons [[YouKilledMyFather swears revenge]] and endures TrainingFromHell so that he can one day fulfill that prophecy.
