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.

* In ''Franchise/MassEffect'''s fanfic ''[[Fanfic/CrucibleMassEffect Crucible]]'', many turian dads run strongly on this trope to various degrees:
** Garrus' maternal grandfather Sheor tried to kill his dad Avitus with an axe when discover that the latter's impregnated his daughter before marriage.

** Then Avitus himself wasn't very pleased with the fact that Solana was all grown up and now has a suitor.
** In the [[BadFuture bad timeline]], Garrus and Shepard's son Gaius started dreading about his daughter will have dates immediately right after he realized ''his wife is pregnant with said kid''.
** PlayedForLaughs with Avitus's friend Crassus who went crazy over his cat Mrs. Tibb. When he discovered that the cat was pregnant he was indecisive between killing the neighbor's male cat that did it and the vet that installed the faulty contraception chip.
** Tragically, [[BigBad Makerm]] was this to his daughter Koria but [[MyGreatestFailure it wasn't enough to protect her]] [[RapeLeadsToInsanity from being raped, became insane]] [[DrivenToSuicide and then drown herself]]. This event was the reason he decided to bring all turians under his rules.

* Mostly subverted in ''ComicBook/SpiderGirl'', since Peter Parker is much less concerned about his daughter May having sex than he is worried that she'll be seriously hurt or killed while acting as a super-hero, given that he obviously knows first-hand how dangerous the job can be. He flips out when he realizes May has been crime fighting behind his back, although more recently he's come to accept his daughter's role. Later Gender Reversed when Mary Jane nearly had a nervous breakdown when May was almost killed fighting one of her father's old enemies, leading May to voluntarily give up being Spider-Girl, until circumstances forced her back into costume. Also played straight in a few instances, such as when May goes on a date with J. Johan Jameson's grandson, which rankles Peter's hide to no end, and when he asks why she couldn't date Jimmy Yuma (who Peter likes), Mary Jane says that Jimmy is terrifed of Peter.

* In ''[[Literature/NightWatch Sixth Watch]]'', Anton has enchanted one of his teenage daughter's earrings to protect her against anyone, who wants to harm her. Quite reasonable, right? She has a number of such amulets from both Anton and her mother, as well as the heads of both Moscow Watches. However, Anton has also added a low-level spell to the earring to ward off any boys until her 18th birthday. His daughter suspects this and is extremely annoyed. Anton swears to her that this isn't true and then [[BreakingTheFourthWall tells the readers not to judge him, especially if they happen to be fathers with teenage daughters of their own]].

Innokenti does, however, want to wait a little longer before they have sex, earning him some respect from Anton, even though it annoys his daughter, who wants to consummate the relationship.
