* In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooPiratesAhoy'', Fred's parents are abducted by pirates. He immediately goes to the rescue... with the whole gang right behind him.


Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers'' features quite a lot of {{Parental Substitute}}s in distress; for has anyone even '''counted''' the times when Captain Planet needed the Planeteers' help? Not to mention the instances where Gaia's life (or at least her immortality) was at stake.

* Invoked in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers''. Quattro tells Vivio that Nanoha is in danger, and all she has to do to get her back is to defeat the demon in front of her. The " demon" in question was Nanoha, but Vivio had been tortured so much in the past few episodes that she honestly thought that she was a monster disguised as her mama in an attempt to deceive her.
