* Parker from ''Series/{{Leverage}}'' certainly seems to be a case. In flashback, we saw her having a favored toy taken away by her (it's assumed) biological father. Next scene shows her holding the toy while walking down the driveway. Then the house explodes.
** {{Jossed}}. WordOfGod is that those were foster parents.

* Tohru Honda of ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' originally believes she is this, believing that her not telling her mother Kyouko to come home safe somehow caused her accident[[note]]Though this is more of a NeverGotToSayGoodbye sort of thing.[[/note]]. Kyo Sohma, although his father is still alive, also believes himself to be this, because his curse (of being the Cat) caused his already mentally unstable mother to commit suicide.

* Monarchies in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' require children to kill their parents. A daughter must challenge her mother and [[KlingonPromotion kill her]] to claim her throne. The exception to the rule is the [[spoiler:ActualPacifist [=RainWings=] who have a rotation of queens and have non-violent ways of claiming their mother's thrones.]] The series begins with a twenty year war caused by the last [=SandWing=] queen being killed by a human. This sent [[SuccessionCrisis her four daughters into a war for the throne]], where they got the other dragons involved as well.

* Played for tragedy in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima''. When Evangeline was first turned into a vampire, she ended up slaughtering everyone in her castle in blind blood lust. When she finally came to, everyone was dead and her parents' blood was on her lips. This happened when she was ''ten'', and she's had to live with that guilt for over 600 years.
