* In ''Literature/VoidCity'', while Eric has sired a number of other vampiric "children" over the years, he has ended up having to kill nearly all of them when they've turned against him. Phillipus implies that this is fairly common, and that he intentionally sires two vampires per year in the hope that some of them will eventually develop into enemies capable of amusing him over the long millennia of his life.

* For further proof of how cruel Mother Nature herself can be, many animals have been known to participate in killing their own children. Oddly enough, with animals it's often more of a necessary evil than an act of malice--it's no coincidence that this behavior is more common among animals who tend to have more than one offspring at a time and not enough food to feed all of them, let alone themselves. For these animals, killing or abandoning one baby is a small price to pay if it means that the other baby (or babies) survives to adulthood.

* An interesting example involving time travel in ''WebComic/TheNonAdventuresOfWonderella'': Wonderella's future daughter traveled back in time to kill Wonderella in revenge for her piss-poor parenting. Wonderella negates her daughter's entire existence by going back on the pill. (Queen Beetle points out that even had her daughter succeeded in killing her, she would have negated her own existence through GrandfatherParadox.)
