* Combined with MayDecemberRomance in ''Film/MiddleOfTheNight'', where 56-year-old Jerry gets engaged to 24-year-old Betty, much to the displeasure of his daughter Lillian, who's actually a year older than Betty. Eventually she comes around, smiling as she says Betty's a nice girl but her father is "an old lech."

* One story on ''WebSite/NotAlwaysRight'' has a man call an online store to complain that they [[https://notalwaysright.com/daddys-little-hacker/71124/ hacked his email and canceled his order from them]], a gift for his girlfriend. Long story short...
---> "Turns out his daughter canceled the order because she doesn't like Dad's new girlfriend."

** Edna Krabappel seems to be getting along well with her new stepsons Rod and Todd Flanders. The only problem is that Edna doesn't feel comfortable with the boys calling her "new mom", while they don't feel comfortable with calling her "Edna" (which is what Edna would prefer, but Rod and Todd have been raised to think it's rude to call adults by their first name).

* A good part of [[spoiler: Nanako Misonoo]]'s angst in ''Manga/OniisamaE'' is related to how her mother married her stepdad when she was five. Not because said stepdad is a bad person, [[GoodParents far from it]], but because her new classmates use it as an excuse for bullying her.

Added DiffLines:

* The fourth season of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' plays this trope thoroughly, which seems odd given that the brothers only ever had one parent, and that didn't change. What changed is that longtime bodyguard Brock--who had already been set up as something of a ParentalSubstitute--quit the job, and former archenemy Sgt. Hatred stepped in. Hank in particular spends most of the season sulking, hoping for Brock's return, and baiting Hatred. He even tells him, "[[YoureNotMyFather You're not my real bodyguard]]." Hatred, in turn, tries desperately to win the boys' approval, going so far as to force Hank to shoot him so that Hank will remember the day he "took a bullet for them". Later it turns out that Brock is still around, kind of, so when he and Hatred are together they tend to behave like ex-husband/new husband, especially where the boys are concerned.

* In ''Half Magic'' by Creator/EdwardEager, the kids introduce their mother to the new paramour, and are mostly quite happy with the whole situation -- except that they think it'd be strange to call him "father", so he gets declared an honorary uncle.

# The kid doesn't like the person at all and ''never'' gets used to them. This can become a recurring plot element, and likely to have the line "[[YoureNotMyFather You're Not My Father]]!" (or Mother) spoken at least once. For extra angst, the new spouse might be [[RemarriedToTheMistress the reason the first marriage broke up]] due to [[YourCheatingHeart infidelity]], which puts extra strain on the chances of the two coming to an understanding. If the person is obviously a villain, this can become [[GuessWhoImMarrying Guess Who I'm Marrying]], with the kid often being the OnlySaneMan who can see the evilness of the new paramour. But even then, sometimes the kid puts this aside to let their parent be happy.

* ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'' has this come up multiple times as part of Kano Sazanami's/Ripple's backstory. An extended flashback shows two instances involving it, starting with an incident in elementary school where other kids make fun of her over her last name changing every other month or so (which ends with her punching them out after they suggest that her mother is a whore, and as such she must be one as well), and ending just before the story proper as she meets her mother's newest husband (which ends with her knocking him unconscious and running away to live on her own after [[spoiler:he starts trying to molest her]]).

* In ''WesternAnimation/OverTheGardenWall'', a big strain on Wirt and Greg's relationship is the fact that they're only half-brothers, as Wirt's mother remarried for unspecified reasons and later had Greg with her new husband. Wirt refers to him as "Greg's stupid dad" and evidently does not like him, with this disdain extending to Greg.
