* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''
** When Barbara was raging against Bruce/Batman for using her and Cass and sending them out on a cruise for "vacation" when he knew that a certain target was there, ''and'' accusing him of only seeing Cass as a weapon, he was completely stoic about it, even smiling at one point. Until Barbara casually mentioned that Superboy had met up with Cass. Then, he proceeded to smash the keyboard up.

* Even though they're cousins, and she's actually chronologically older than he is, ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' took on this role with Supergirl when she first arrived on earth. He even jumped down the throat of one of the Amazons of Themyscira for besting her while they were ''sparring''.

* Darryl, from ''ComicStrip/{{Baby Blues}}'', especially toward his oldest daughter, Zoe. In one early storyline, Darryl panicked when he learned that a then two-year-old Zoe had a crush on an "older man" (a ''three-year-old''). He also reacted [[{{Main/Fainting}} about as well as you'd expect]] when Zoe (who was, at most, around 10 years old) got a coupon in the mail from Victoria's Secret.

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.

* ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'': [[Characters/UFORoboGrendizer Danbei Makiba]]. Unlike other fathers in the ''Mazinger trilogy'' - [[Anime/MazingerZ Gennosuke Yumi]] and [[Anime/GreatMazinger Kenzo Kabuto]] come to mind - who were at best neglectful, Danbei was overprotective to the point that his daughter found it annoying. He threatened - or outright attempted - to kill whoever hung around with Hikaru. And if someone offered to drive her to some place, he loaded his shotgun in front of that person while he stated: "You better bring her back without even one scratch."

That, and he's actually a Shinigami, too.]] Also subverted in that while he's obsessed with ensuring the safety of his ''daughters'', [[spoiler: he is and has always planned on using his son as a living weapon, even admitting that a father who claims he's willing to let his own son die is a better father to his son than him.

** Vegeta seems to be this to his daughter Bra, going so far as to attack teenage punks that were hitting on his daughter -- and because they made fun of him and his mustache ([[PornStache though they might have a point with the mustache]]).
