** Inverted with regular character Worf, who is a Klingon who 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.

* 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.]]

* ''{{Batman}}'' antagonist Bane was born and raised in Peno Duro, the worst HellholePrison in Santa Prisca, a small South American country mostly known for it's drug trade. His father was Edmund Dorrance, AKA King Snake, a British mercenary who fled the country after a failed revolution, with the goverment sentencing his unborn son to serve his sentence. As a result of being raised and trained by the worst murderers, rapists and monsters South America had to offer, Bane grew up into an extremely dangerous and competent arch-criminal, fluent in several languages thanks to the mixed nationality of the prison population, and highly intelligent both due to a natural gift and the education he recieved from the prisoners and a local Jesuit priest. He is essentially an evil, sociopathic Franchise/DocSavage.

** 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.

** Subverted in the episode "Suddenly Human", in which the ''Enterprise'' discovers, and attempts to "rescue", a human teenager who was adopted as a small child by a military officer of an alien species, after his human parents were killed by them during a past war between them and the Federation. Signs of old injuries that were interpreted as abuse turn out to be due to the usual hazards of an adventurous boyhood as part of a ProudWarriorRace, and Picard and the crew finally accept the genuine love between the boy and his adoptive father, and his desire to return to the culture he was brought up in.

* Scorpius on ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. He's the product of Scarran scientific study that involved raping Sebacean women in order to determine if any potential mixed-species offspring could be of use to the Scarran Empire. He was the lone hybrid who survived. This upbringing made him join with the Sebaceans to destroy the Scarrans.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse Lincoln Loud]] thought this was the case with Robbie Anne, admitting he assumed she was raised by trolls. This isn't the case, as shown in later episodes, and this comment [[ItMakesSenseInContext got him a dozen CD's thrown at him by his eldest sister]].
