* Gomez Addams, of all people, starts to show this in the Broadway adaptation of ''Main/TheAddamsFamily''. (The main plot of the musical involves an [[AgeLift Age Lifted]] Wednesday falling in love with a boy her age and both trying to adapt to the others' family; Gomez warms up to him in the end.)

* ''Manga/SgtFrog'': Nevulon is a fairly good example in episode 291 [[spoiler:when he and Alisa Southerncross are separated at the hotsprings, and he goes insane with worry.]]

There is no overlap with this trope and PapaWolf. If it belongs in the later then don't put it here. The same person can be both at different times but those times are ''different''. However, this trope might overlap with KnightTemplarParent if the dad goes to dangerous extremes in their overprotectiveness.

* Of all people, hotheaded god of war struggles with trying to ''prevent'' this in ''ComicBook/DarkAvengers''. When he finds out his son Phobos has been training with Nick Fury, he gets quite angry and looks quite willing to tear everything in arm's length apart. At the same time, though, he admits that he resented his father Zeus acting in a similar fashion and doesn't want to drive his own son away like Ares felt driven away from Zeus. Ares eventually relents, but warns Fury that, should the boy get killed, it's quite likely that Zeus will still act like an Overprotective Granddad and act accordingly, even if Ares is more understanding.

* ''Oh, who are we kidding?!'' '''Every''' father of '''every'' daughter! And, for any male tropers who might be reading this, if you end up having a daughter (or daughters), you ''will'' most likely become this to them.

* Angela's dad (played by Billy Gibbons of ZZTop fame) on ''Series/{{Bones}}''. He's scared Hodgins plenty of times and knocked him out, then tattooed him and dumped him in the desert twice. At the same time, he warns Hodgins that it's a ''very'' bad idea to ask him for permission to marry his free-spirited daughter. If she finds out, they're both dead.

* Sai in ''VisualNovel/{{Sickness}}' is constantly reminding Suoh not to do anything pervy with Misa, even though he's made it clear he's not the kind of guy.

{{Gender Flip}}s are less common; I.E. fathers more concerned about the girls/women their '''sons''' date. This is due to the breaking down of [[DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale female-on-male abuse]] and [[ChristmasCake cougars]] (i.e. older women dating younger men), so it is TruthInTelevision in a way. And of course, there's also the "mothers being overprotective over their sons/daughters" kind of genderflips.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'':
** [[spoiler: Harry Dresden]]. When his daughter is kidnapped in ''Literature/{{Changes}}'', although it wasn't his original plan, [[spoiler:he wipes out an entire RACE OF VAMPIRES WITH THE SPELL THEY WERE PLANNING ON USING HER FOR.]] Under the circumstances it's understandable. ([[spoiler:[[OurVampiresAreDifferent Red Court vampires]] are monsters, so wiping them out isn't all that bad. They were in an open war with wizards at the time. And at that minute, Harry had no other option.]]) ItMakesSenseInContext.
** Michael is arguably a better example of this trope. Michael's composure and decorum are almost saintly; he's a Knight Templar (''not'' the trope) with IncorruptiblePurePureness. He uses minimal force against actual demons and shows mercy when they're defeated, even if they're being a SmugSnake. The only thing that ever makes him get aggressive, or threaten a defeated opponent, or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking swear]] is an AntiVillain who's holding Michael's daughter hostage.
