* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': [[CoolUncle Qrow]] is Yang's maternal uncle but he loves Yang's half-sister Ruby just as much as Yang. Nothing stands between him and his nieces: he rescues Yang and Ruby from a hoard of Grimm when they were young children and he spends Volume 4 secretly following Ruby's group through the wilds of Anima, killing any Grimm that get too close. He only reveals his presence when Ruby's group find themselves fighting the vastly superior Tyrian, charging in to protect Ruby from being seriously injured. [[spoiler: When the fourteen-year old Oscar locates Qrow in Volume 5 to reveal he's [[LegacyCharacter Ozpin's new reincarnation]], it means that [[BigGood Ozpin's]] vast abilities are limited by Oscar's young, untrained body. When Hazel tries to kill Oscar for being the new host of the man he blames for his sister's death, Qrow's UndyingLoyalty to Ozpin combines with his instinct for protecting children, resulting in him throwing himself in harm's way over and over again to prevent Oscar's death until he's too badly injured to fight any more.]]

->''When M[a]eglin saw this he [[WouldHurtAChild would stab Eärendil]] with a short knife he had; but ... the mail of the small coat turned the blade aside; and thereupon Tuor was upon him and his wrath was terrible to see. He seized M[a]eglin by that hand that held the knife and broke the arm with the wrench, and then taking him by the middle leapt with him upon the walls, and [[DisneyVillainDeath flung him far out]]''.

Often Papa Wolf incidents serve as a way to reveal that a NonActionGuy is really a RetiredBadass or a CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass. In contrast to an OverprotectiveDad (who sometimes ''thinks'' he's this; there is no overlap between them), a Papa Wolf is always portrayed heroically because the latter is defending their kids from genuine threats instead of imagined ones.
