* Ruby and Yang's father Taiyang in ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' is implied to be one. Though we have yet to see it on-screen, both sisters made comments that he wouldn't approve of the presence of boys during their first night in Beacon and Ruby said she can sympathize with Penny about having a father who is concerned for their daughter. Justified in that his first wife disappeared without a trace and his second wife died on a mission, making him understandably protective over his two daughters.
** True to form, in his brief appearance in the Volume 3 epilogue, he [[spoiler:stays by both of his injured and exhausted daughters' beds and cares for them, bringing them breakfast and gets very upset when Qrow enters Ruby's room and expresses his wishes to talk to Ruby alone. He also panics when he finds out that Ruby has run away from home]]. {{Good Parent|s}} 101.

The entire concept is ''very'' easy to suffer a {{Squick}} over, especially if you believe that FreudWasRight, or if the father is a PervertDad.

* Judge Turpin in ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' is a {{Squick}}-inducing adoptive father who [[FreudWasRight proves Freud right]]. Of course, Johanna's [[AxCrazy real father]] [[SerialKiller isn't someone]] [[HemoErotic she'd be happy]] [[KnifeNut to call Dad either]], but hey, at least he's not trying to rape her, shut her in an asylum or lock her up in one room for the rest of her life.

Note that applying this trope in RealLife is a very bad idea as it gives the message to teenagers that they don't get to control who's allowed to be intimate with them or have any agency over their own lives and other people are allowed make the decision for them - which often leads to them becoming involved in abusive relationships once they do finally get out from under their parent's immediate control.

* Lao Bei Fong of ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' was extremely protective of his daughter because she was blind, and even kept her existence a secret. When he finds out she wasn't learning just basic earthbending but was instead ''[[{{Badass}} amazingly]]'' proficient, he decides ''she's had too much freedom and must be monitored around the clock''. When she runs away he sends two people after her, one of which ''had just kidnapped her hours ago''.

** Averted with [[spoiler: Shepard]]'s dad Sam who, while protective of his child when needed (like saving her from two rapists and then fed the hungry teen), was very supportive of her relationship with her husband. In fact, the reason she and [[spoiler: Garrus]] met in the first place was because Sam arranged it so they could fall in love and then married as he knew the husband and his family will love and protect his child with everything they had.
