It can be justified if the parents [[AbusiveParents happen to be abusive]] or cruel mockeries of humanity from beyond the void -- insofar as murder can be, but at least it's then the domain of the [[AntiHero dark and troubled protagonists]]. It's more justifiable if [[EvilMatriarch the parent is an]] [[ArchnemesisDad outright villain]]. In addition, there are also instances where the child either unintentionally killed his parents or something [[FateWorseThanDeath genuinely horrific]] happened to his/her parents that they are forced to kill them. It can also be justifiable if said parent was going to be Offing The Offspring anyway, and needed to defend him/herself and had no choice.

** [[spoiler:Lord Eon Hunter]]'s sudden death leads people to blame his eldest son Gilwood for the murder. He wasn't the culprit, though. All this time, it was [[spoiler:Harlan, the third son]], who might also be planning to [[spoiler:murder his older brothers so he could be Lord of Longbow]].
