* Syphile of ''{{Drowtales}}'' is ordered by her adopted mother Quain'tana to raise her younger sister Ariel. She proves to be a terrible mother, receiving absolute hatred from Ariel as she grows up, because Syphile is a completely terrible and excessively cruel person, who beats, insults, starves and otherwise abuses Ariel throughout her early childhood.

** As mentioned already, he also sorta used the trope in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia'' books, since the teenaged Peter and Susan have to deal with helping out Edmund and Lucy (with help of Professor Kirke) when their parents send them to the countryside to protect them from the London bombings. The 2005 film version strongly highlights this, with [[Jerkass Edmund]] given the FreudianExcuse of particularly missing their father and resenting Peter's attempts to be a father figure to him.

* Yakko in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' movie ''WesternAnimation/WakkosWish''. Pretty much Yakko anyways, given their situation.

He leans toward this trope in the series too, but since the movie takes place in an {{Alternate Universe}} where the Warners are actual orphans - unlike in the series, where they never had parents, but [[ArtInitiatesLife were created by an animator drawing them]] it's especially visible there.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fahrenheit}}'' [[PrivateEyeMonologue Lucas]] casually mentions that his older brother Marcus "took care of me after our parents died". Sounds sweet enough until you see their grave stones and figures out that Lucas was around eighteen when his parents died (ten years later he has a former girlfriend that used to live with him in his huge loft). I know his older brother became a priest, but ''come on!''
