** Bakugou's parents only realized late in the game that their son's bad attitude and massive ego had gotten to the point of his being a complete jerk. They're trying to reign him in now, but his mother clearly regrets not having done more sooner.
** Shouto's mother. Forced into a marriage with Endeavor so he could combine their quirks to create a TykeBomb who could be a stronger hero than All Might, she managed to be a god mother to Shouto and his older siblings and protected Shouto from his abusive father as much as she could. However, the strain over the years wore her down to the point where she snapped under the abuse and during a FreakOut threw boiling water in Shouto's face, after which Endeavor had her sent away to a mental ward. Shouto firmly does not blame her for what happened, placing the blame on his father for abusing them both until she cracked. When Shouto visits her years later, she's very happy to see him.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Sing}}'':
**
Meena's family are shown to be loving and supportive of her but their attempts to encourage and push her to pursue a singing career has the unfortunate effect of putting a lot of pressure of the already shy Meena. This is especially noticable with her grandfather, who is one of Meena's biggest supporters but is pretty abrasive when it comes to her stage fright.
** Rosita loves her husband and 25 children with all her heart, but she feels consumed with taking care of them and wants to re-ignite her dream of being a star. That's the reason why she joins the singing contest in the first place.

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'': Yondu Udonta is the rare adoptive parent example. By his own admission, he wasn't the best parental figure to a young Peter Quill: as a Ravager, one who had participated and/or bore witness to much of the darkness of the underbelly of the intergalactic community, he was hardly someone that should aspire to something like fatherhood. He could be harsh and he could be cruel at times. But when it came down to it, he loved Peter, and [[ToughLove raised him that way so he could survive even without Yondu by his side]], against any enemies that might come his way -- [[spoiler:such as Peter's ''biological'' father. As final proof of his love, he dies saving Peter's life, an act that makes Peter realize that Yondu, for all his faults, was the father he had been searching for all his life]].

* Val and Max from ''Literature/HalfwayHuman'' both make sacrifices for the family. They are occasionally stressed out, broke, tired, etc. But they love their kid.

* Arguably occurs in ''Webcomic/FriendlyHostility.'' Padma and Nefertari Maharassa are still besotted with each other, and they aren't conventional parents--especially since "conventional parents" generally don't have a pet Satanist (Rafi) occupying the spare room. They're not ''bad'' parents though; the Maharassa kids have a interesting/fun childhood, it's just prone to some… drama. Such as the parents leaving Rafi to babysit only to find he'd lost their daughter to cannibals. Fatima, their oldest child, has a strange love-hate relationship with her family, but then again she's an extremely cynical DeadpanSnarker. Their younger son, Fox, just adores them. Padma and Nefertari are always there for their now grown-up children, but they're still prone to some rather eccentric behaviour.

* Professor Membrane on ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' is a generally-affable and utterly brilliant [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Scientist]] who is entirely too wrapped up in [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou fixing every problem in the world]] to pay much attention to his children. His relationship with his son Dib is particularly strained because Dib won't get involved in "REAL Science" (he's an eleven-year-old paranormal investigator), while his daughter Gaz's desire to spend time with him is arguably the ''only'' time in the series she shows a desire to be around ''anybody.''

Mr. Jigokumeguri in ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' does want to be a good parent to his daughters and respects their decisions if they clash with his own, but the choices he makes end up having disastrous consequences, whether it be setting Haru up for an ArrangedMarriage, set her up as heiress when she's only a child, or letting Aki compete for the position.

* ''Pixar/{{Brave}}'': Queen Elinor is very dedicated to her role as queen, running the kingdom of Scotland and following tradition to a fault to ever notice that Merida feels trapped in such a rigid environment that doesn't allow her to do her own choices. Due to this clash of ideas the two fight and lead to the main plot of the movie.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RebeldeWay'' the three main parents exemplify this. While Sergio is absolutely abusive towards Pablo; Sonia and Franco instead are presented as doting parents who would do anything for their daughters, Mia and Marizza, even to the point of spoiling them. Yet they're also shown to have flaws in their parenting: the girls at times act a little too bratty due to their parenting; Sonia has difficulty connecting to Marizza who feels overshadowed by her, and Franco has kept Mia wrapped in a figurative plastic bubble that shields her from the reality surrounding her. [[spoiler: Not to mention when the two discover the parentage of their missing parents, the girls expectedly freak out.]]

* Austrian Empress UsefulNotes/MariaTheresa is described as such by history, media and TheOtherWiki. She ''was'' affectionate to them (showing some favoritism towards her fifth child Maria Christina, both for being born in Maria Theresa's 25th birthday ''and'' for [[TheOjou being classy, talented and cute]]), but also used them as pawns via {{Arranged Marriage}}s like pretty much every Habsburg and non-Habsburg monarch; she wrote to them frequently to keep close contact with each son or daughter, while not being above of trying to use her motherly authority to influence their lives. And you know how… ''[[SarcasmMode well]]'' that worked [[MarieAntoinette in a certain case.]]
