* The mother of Prince Gustav XIII is exiled along with him in ''SaGaFrontier2'' after he is shown to be incapable of using magic, which is important to the ceremony of throne-succession in his country. Even living in a shanty and slowly dying from lack of nutrition and the rigors of being rapidly destitute, she never loses her stately composure. [[StartOfDarkness Gustav, on the other hand...]]

* Malice from ''RivieraThePromisedLand''. Her BlueBlood is confirmed in the drama [=CDs=], which also explain how her family lost its prestige. She acts arrogantly toward and despises the protagonist for having power since his birth, but her attitude is never fully explained in-game.

** Mary's half-sister Elizabeth was also this trope after ''her'' mother fell out of favor with Henry and was executed. Unlike Mary, Elizabeth was a bit too young at the time to be defiant about it. (Henry's third wife, Jane, eventually got him to admit both of his daughters back to court.)
