* DirEnGrey's song "Berry" tells the story of a nine-year-old girl who gets sick of her parents abusing her, takes her father's gun, and shoots them. If that's not disturbing enough, the girl's favorite food is jam on bread, and the blood her parents shed is referred to as raspberry jam.

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'', ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'':



* [[spoiler:Suzaku]] of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' killed his father, [[spoiler:the Prime Minister of Japan, Genbu Kururugi]], during Japan's war against Britannia. He did this in order to [[spoiler:force Japan to surrender, thus ending the bloodshed of the war and preventing Japan's total destruction, since Genbu actually was ready to [[HonorBeforeReason have Japan destroyed rather than under Britannian rule]]]]. It worked, but the character is so horribly torn by guilt that the incident gives him LaserGuidedAmnesia for ''years''. To make things worse, [[spoiler:it's indicated in some of the background material that if Japan ''had'' fought to the end as Genbu wanted, that ''could'' have bought enough time for the Chinese Federation and/or the [=EU=] to intervene on Japan's behalf]]. No wonder the culprit [[spoiler: grew into such a DeathSeeker.]]

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' has a ''tragic'' case of this trope. In her backstory, [[spoiler:Satoko Hojou had become insane and extremely paranoid as a result of suffering from [[HatePlague Hinamizawa Syndrome]], to the point where she perceived her own parents as a threat to her and pushed them both off a cliff to their deaths.]] It was essentially a twisted kind of self-defense.
** [[spoiler:Natsumi]] is this in her arcs. [[spoiler:She was infected with the same HatePlague, which caused her to kill both her parents and her grandmother.]]



* ''Literature/TheSecretLifeOfBees'' has a tragic example with its protagonist. Lily accidentally shot her mother when she was four years old.



* In ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive'', [[spoiler:Shallan]] killed [[spoiler:her]] father before the series started.
** In the second book it's revealed that [[spoiler: she killed both her parents. Her mother tried to kill her when she started developing the powers of a Radiant, and she killed her in self defense. Her father allowed others to believe he did it, and became an abusive drunk. She poisoned him after he really did kill his second wife and was beating her brother to death, then strangled him when the poison failed to finish him off.]]
