* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius''
** The BigBad of ''Path of Radiance'', King Ashnard, is revealed to have killed not only his parents but his ''entire family''. You see, he was pretty far back in the line of succession, so if he wanted to become king, some pruning of the family tree was required...

([[OffingTheOffspring And you can do the reverse as well]]) [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Whoopsie.]]
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'' second part, we have [[spoiler:the [[DemonicPossession Lopto!possessed! Prince Julius]] attacking his mother Deirdre ''and'' his younger sister Julia. WhiteMagicianGirl Deirdre manages to use her Warp staff to save Julia, but isn't lucky enough herself, and she dies at Julius's hands.]] Similarly, in the first half King Chagall of Augustria and Duke Andorey of Jungby killed their fathers to ascend to their respective thrones. (The second earns the scorn of [[EvenEvilHasStandards his fellow conspirator Duke Langobalt]] for that). Also, for major VideoGameCrueltyPotential, in both halves you can have some of your own units kill their {{Archnemesis Dad}}s: Tailto (daughter of Duke Reptor) and Lex (son of the aforementioned Duke Langobalt) for the first part, either Johan or Johalvier (sons of King Danan) in the second.
* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade]]'', [[spoiler:after numerous attempts on his own life from [[OffingTheOffspring his father, King Desmond]], Prince Zephiel of Bern [[TheDogBitesBack decides to turn the tables]]. He fakes his own death, then at his funeral, when Desmond opens the coffin to check on his son, Zephiel stabs him dead on the spot.]]
* It's possible to do this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' in ''The Future Past'' Paralogue as long as [[spoiler: the Avatar is the mother of Lucina]] or [[spoiler: the father to another Second Generation character.]] Although ''technically'' the offed person was possessed by the BigBad and viewed this as a MercyKill.

* One can do this in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', in the following cases: [[spoiler: The Avatar (killing his/her biological father Anankos/Hydra, or either his/her mother Mikoto, his/her ParentalSubstitute Sumeragi (both were forcibly revived by Anankos/Hydra) or his/her abusive father Garon (better said, his doppelgänger who posed for years as the real Garon)]]; [[spoiler: Azura (killing her also forcibly revived mother Shenmei)]], [[spoiler: any Hoshido sibling (ParentalSubstitute Mikoto or birth father Sumeragi)]], [[spoiler: any Nohr sibling (the aforementioned fake Garon)]] and specially [[spoiler: Female Kanna (but only if she's mothered by Crimson, who dies and then is revived as a zombie in the ''Invisible Kingdom'' path)]] [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential OUCH!]]

* One of the oldest and most infamous examples was that of the Roman Emperor UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}, who ordered the assassination of his mother, [[EvilMatriarch Agrippina the Younger]], over a power dispute (the exact trigger is disputed, but it's clear he thought her too meddlesome). (Both his biological father, Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, and his adoptive father, the emperor Claudius, had died some years previously.) Most accounts claim he originally ordered that she be [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident drowned in a ship rigged to sink]], but when she escaped from that, he just had a guard just stab her. According to legend, when she saw the guard with his sword drawn, she said, ''Ventrem feri''--"[[FamousLastWords Strike at my womb]]."

[[YourCheatingHeart She once caught Anna kissing her uncle/dad]]; after an HeroicBSOD, she killed Anna by lacing her tea with poison to "protect" her family.
