* Penny's father, Patrick Fitzgerald from WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball, especially in "The Kids", where he mistakes Gumball-- who had a puberty spurt that made his voice change-- for a creepy teenager making crank calls:
-->'''Mr. Fitzgerald''' [''on the phone'']: You think you can call my house and freak us out? You think you've got a scary voice? [''in a deep, ominous voice''] ''This is a scary voice.'' Now listen to me: I have a very specific set of skills; skills I've acquired over a very long career... in real estate. If you never call my daughter again, that will be the end of it, but if you do, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will build [[SealedRoomInTheMiddleOfNowhere a house around you... with no doors.]]

** Don't forget that in the prequel, [[spoiler:humans killed Ariel's mother, whom out of all their daughters, [[StrongFamilyResemblance Ariel is the spitting image of]]]]. This ''definitely'' makes Triton's reasoning more understandable. [[spoiler:He probably couldn't bear the thought of basically losing his wife ''twice''.]]

* Pictured above: In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', Maes Hughes holds three-year-old boys at gunpoint as they attempt to play with his daughter Elysia on her birthday. Complete with ScaryShinyGlasses. [[spoiler:Anyone who actually knows how he fights, however, knows this is a joke — he's much more skilled with {{kni|feNut}}ves than with guns.

* The Future is Wild animated series: C.G.'s father comes off strict and demanding of his Daughter, Cassiopeia AKA C.G., but this is due to being overprotective. He is always overly considered for her safety and wellbeing and at first, keeps C.G. from learning on her own in his desire to make sure she succeeds her mission and returns home safely. Not helping with his overprotectiveness is the fact that he doesn't at first approve of C.G. bringing her crew of 21st century teenagers (Ethan, Emily and Luis), often calling them primitives. Thankfully, over the course of the series, he changes his attidute for the better once he realized that C.G. needs friends her age and stepped back to give her more flexibility to lead the mission.

* Subverted on ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'', when [=SpongeBob=] agrees to chaperon Mr. Krabs' daughter to the prom. When he's dropping her off, Krabs runs out the door screaming "GET AWAY FROM ME PRECIOUS FLOWER!!!"... which turns out to be an actual flower that [=SpongeBob=] was in danger of stepping on. Also another episode has Krabs worried sick that boys will show up to his daughter's sleepover, though his overriding concern isn't anything the boys would do to Pearl, but the thought that boys would destroy any of his property and beloved possessions. It should also be noted that in the prom episode, Mr. Krabs totally subverts the trope by telling ''Pearl'' not to mess ''[=SpongeBob=]'' up too much. (because he needs him for work)

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "The Golden Age of Justice", the entire Justice Society treats Black Canary as if she were made of glass and will tell her to wait back while they do all the hard work -- despite the fact that she's a competent crimefighter in her own right, as well as half their age. Eventually she learns from Wildcat that [[spoiler:their over-protectiveness stems from a promise made to Dinah's mother, the first Black Canary, as she died in the middle of a rescue mission]]. Not to mention, they treat ''Batman'' kind of the same way, but not quite as severe.

* ''WesternAnimation/DrDimensionpants'' has a villainouos example; Glass Skull absolutely doesn’t like the idea of his daughter Rebecca getting a boyfriend, and will chase away any boy that shows interest in her.

* Ripley Holden in ''Series/{{Blackpool}}'' veers into {{Squick}} territory over this, describing his daughter as a "wet dream" and trying to threaten and even bribe his daughter's "unsuitable" fiancée to get lost. Made worse by the fact that the man in question [[{{Lolicon}} is her father's age]]. Add in the fact that the fiancé gets beaten up by Ripley's gay son because he thought that's what his father wanted and you have a family just MADE of {{Squick}}.
