* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'', the Kingpin is as strongly implied to be this as the censors would allow. After being left for the police by his father in a robbery gone south, he [[HadToComeToPrisonToBeACrook walked out of prison]] with the physical strength, connections and mentality needed to build his empire. It's not made clear what he did to his father, but Smythe is shocked that even Kingpin could be so ruthless. Near the end of that storyline, the Kingpin makes his own son Richard take the fall for Kingpin's exposed scheme. After his wife leaves him for this betrayal, the Kingpin is left alone holding a photo of his shattered family, bitterly wondering when his own son would take his revenge.
* M Bison, BigBad of ''WesternAnimation/StreetFighter'', doesn't understand why Chun-Li is [[YouKilledMyFather angry at him.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed: The Chain'', Innokenti Orelov ends up having to shoot his own father Nikolai, an Assassin, who is struggling with another Assassin. The bullet passes through Nikolai and the other Assassin, killing both. It's implied Nikolai wanted his son to do this to save himself. Innokenti picks up his father's hidden blade and walks off into the sunset. While his further fate is unknown, it's clear he at least survives to produce a child, as Daniel Cross is his descendant.
