* ''[[{{Tron20}} Tron 2.0]]'': Jet is trying to rescue his father, Alan, from kidnappers who put the ''hostile'' in "hostile corporate takeover." He is also trying to rescue and protect the benevolent AI Ma3a from a viral invasion launched by the same creeps.

* ''Film/{{Logan}}'': [[spoiler: When X-24 kills Charles, [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]], who came to view him as a surrogate grandfather, gets ''violent'' and furiously leaps on his back with claws flashing, even though he's twice her size. He's only able to defeat and subdue her because she had no room to maneuver. Later in the film she does it ''again'' to protect her ''actual'' father, Logan, and this time subjects him to a positively brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. X-24 only manages to shake her off when he manages to land a lucky blow (she ''is'' only eleven years old). She ultimately delivers the fatal blow via an adamantium bullet to his noggin when he tries to finish off the mortally wounded Logan.]]

** 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. (Though after that's all said and done, the kids are sent back to their now healed worlds, where the parents are back to normal and alive).]]

* In the fourth case of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'', a girl named Ema Skye hires Phoenix and serves as his assistant because her older sister Lana (who is basically [[PromotedToParent her mother]]) is on trial for murder and refusing to deny she did it. [[spoiler:As the trial goes on, it turns out that Lana's in even worse trouble than initially suspected. She's been blackmailed by her boss, Damon Gant, for the past few years, which resulted in her taking on a cold, distant and standoffish demeanor in an attempt to cope. (And one of the blackmailing matters is how, if Lana doesn't do stuff like Gant says, ''Ema will be accused of murder instead''.)]]
