* ''[[VideoGame/ArcanumOfSteamworksAndMagickObscura Arcanum]]'' has two versions of it as a possible character background and both [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zag the trope]]:
** Literal one, where the player character was a runaway orphan, took in and and raised by an orcish familly. Even if the character was apparently loved and cared for, it still [[NoSocialSkills robs him/her of conventional social skills]] due to a ''staggering'' -6 penalty to Charisma (standard starting value is 8), while providing decent bonus to Strenght, Perception and ''all'' combat skills.
** Being member of a barbarian tribe is combined with extremely mysterious past. It's not exactly clear if the character was born in, raised by or simply dwelled with said tribe. The (toned) penalties are more related with being out-of-touch with social standards and lacking formal education rather than being rough or grumpy as a person. It also comes with [[DiscOneNuke extremely useful barbarian armour]], combined with Strengh, Constitution and Melee bonuses, making it one of the best starting backgrounds for melee-oriented characters.

* Inverted in Webcomic/TwoKinds: Flora is [[PettingZooPeople an anthropomorphic tigress]] who was raised by humans. Same goes for the fox Evals who was born in slavery. And the [[NonhumanHumanoidHybrid canine/feline hybrid]] Catlyn was the result of a breeding program for slaves, ''sex'' slaves [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters the humans are the orcs in this verse]].



* In the ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' tie-in book ''StartOfDarkness,'' [[DragonWithAnAgenda Redcloak]]'s brother, Right-Eye, gives his daughter up to humans to raise after their whole village is forced into [[TheCalgula Xykon]]'s army. This is after his two sons have already fallen in battle, and given the brothers' [[FantasticRacism hatred]] [[FreudianExcuse of humans]] he was clearly desperate.

** This did not qualify as a HeelFaceTurn as the main Sebacean culture, the Peacekeepers, are just barely [[BlackAndGreyMorality the lesser of two evils]] compared to the Scarran Empire (the Scarrans want to utterly conquer and subjugate everyone forever in a species dictatorship while the Peacekeepers do at least sometimes allow their conquered species to maintain their own societies and get recruited). There's a reason that for most of the series, Scorpius was the BigBad.

* Inverted on ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', where Worf (a Klingon) was raised by humans. Granted Klingons aren't the enemy of humanity anymore (mostly) but the principle is the same. This was played with quite effectively, with Worf often being truer to Klingon principles from having learned about them while surrounded by humans than most Klingons we meet, who are often sloppy and dishonourable from lacking this incentive to be true to their culture.

* Helena from ''Series/OrphanBlack'' was raised by the abusive Prolethean cult and trained to hate and kill clones (and misinformed that she wasn't a clone herself). [[spoiler: The Castor clones]] were raised by the military and trained as agents of TheBaroness.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'', [[EvilTwin Sabata]] was kidnapped at birth by [[OurVampiresAreDifferent The Immortals]], given a healthy dose of Dark Matter to [[TheCorruption imbue him with all their evil powers]], and sent after Django.

* After his defense attorney father dies, [[PhoenixWrightAceAttorney Miles Edgeworth]] is adopted by prosecutor Manfred von Karma and raised to be one of the most vicious and effective prosecutors his district has ever known. [[spoiler: Of course this was all part of von Karma's extended revenge against Gregory Edgeworth. He murdered him and then plotted to turn his son into a twisted mirror of everything Gregory Edgeworth stood for, and without Phoenix Wright to confuse matters he probably would have succeeded.]]

* As a child, while fleeing Norway with his mother after his father was killed during a war for the throne, Olaf Trygvasson was taken captive by Estonian pirates. His foster-father was killed, and he was raised by the pirates as a slave and sold or traded several times. Six years later his uncle finds him there while collecting taxes, buys him, and takes him to Gardriki, where he was originally fleeing to, where he serves in the court of King Valdemar. Despite his unusual upbringing, he becomes a competent and well-liked military commander, and avenges his foster father by killing his murderer, eventually becoming King of Norway before dying fighting his rival to the throne.

* The mutant who would become Comicbook/{{Apocalypse}}, En Sabah Nur, was abandoned at birth for his obvious mutations. He was then rescued and adopted by Baal, leader of the Sandstormer raiders, and grew up indoctrinated with their SocialDarwinist creed. A lot of Apocalypse's villainy is simply him taking his adoptive father's teachings to a nightmarish extreme.

* Tagg in ''[[{{Redwall}} The Taggerung]]'' is a textbook example: he's an otter whose father was killed by [[AlwaysChaoticEvil vermin]], and is later raised by them. He grows to be the biggest, toughest, fastest, strongest of them all, and this being Redwall, he can't bring himself to kill an unarmed creature and he runs off. The tribe end up chasing him because a) he stole the chieftain Sawney's knife, and b) they think he killed Sawney.

She grows up hating everyone, including the Mwellrets; The Morgawr is the only person she respects, and it's just barely.

* [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Spike the Dragon's]] upbringing is a beat-for-beat ''[[InvertedTrope inversion]]'' of this trope. He was hatched by [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter ponies]], given a focus on social interaction over combat, taught to be a peaceful, generous person, and has a direct connection to their benevolent [[GodEmperor immortal ruler.]] Unfortunately, continuing the inversion, it's strongly implied that a dragon's [[AlwaysChaoticEvil greedy tendencies]] are InTheBlood.
