* ''Anime/CorrectorYui'':
** In the first episode, Yui isn't very convinced by IR's claims that she is TheChosenOne. Thenthe Com.net is attacked and one of the first targets is a virtual amusement park... designed and handled by Yui's father Shinichi, who is ''still'' there with his workmates. Yui ''immediately'' jumps into action and tells IR that she will be a Corrector.
** In the second season, [[DarkMAgicalGirl Corrector Ai]]'s main goal is to find the conscience of her comatose mother Azusa, which was "separated" from her body in an accident in the Net. [[spoiler: It turns out [[HeKnowsTooMuch it wasn NOT an accident]].]]



* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'', Eliwood's main motivation is to find his father Elbert, who disappeared in strange circumstances. [[spoiler: He finds him... in the lair of the Black Fang, gravely injured and weakened. And then he dies in his arms.]] And before that, Lyn's adventures involved her racing against the clock to both to claim her inheritance as the Princess of Caelin ''and'' save her ill grandfather Hausen. [[spoiler: And she has to do the second part again one year later, when the Black Fang attacks their realm.]]
** Likewise, one of the missions in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' involves protecting Pontifex Mansel, L'Arachel's ParentalSubstitute ''and'' the leader of the Rausten Theocracy.
** And in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[spoiler: the [[KidFromTheFuture kids from the future]] decide to time travel to avert the deaths of their parents... which triggered the BadFuture they're from.]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the ''Heirs of Fates'' DLC offers a rather cruel twist... [[spoiler: since not only it starts with the parents already dead, but finishes with the fathers (or mother, in the case of a Male Kana) forcibly revived and being BrainwashedAndCrazy. The [[AscendedExtra children characters]] realize that the only way to return them to normal is to ''kill'' them.

* A minor example occurs in "Chicken Hearts," an episode of ''{{Roseanne}}''. Roseanne, who is stuck working for an obnoxious teenager at a fast food restaurant, invites the kid over for dinner and to have husband Dan help him with an auto shop assignment in an attempt to help him see that she can't work weekends. When he fires her instead, her daughters Becky and Darlene step up and start shouting at him, calling him a jerk. Later, as he leaves, they also hand him pieces of his auto shop project, which they helped to destroy.
