* The first ''BaldursGate'' game does this really well; if Khalid is in your party, and your character is Good, then he will compliment you, saying, "Gorion would be so proud of you" (Gorion is your foster father). Since this usually only occurs when you do some significant Good act, it does make your character feel like a hero.
* In Videogame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic going out of your way to do a lightsided deed with Juhani in the party will get a similar response to Khalid: "This is how a Jedi acts, with honour." It's easy to forget being a Jedi is more than stabbing things with a lightsaber.

* ''Series/{{Titus}}'': The one time [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood Papa Titus]] told Christopher that he was proud of him after he did a good job repainting his dad's truck, Chistopher was so taken aback by it that he thought Ken was actually dying.

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'':
** Subverted. Shinji was overjoyed when his father praised him after stopping Sahaquiel... but after a while he decided that he had clung to his father's praise in a pathetic way.
--->Once in his life, he would have leapt at the offer from his Grandfather, in the same pathetic way he had clung to his Father's praise after he had stopped the 10th Angel, letting those three worlds play over and over in his head.\\
-("Good work, Shinji...")-
** Played straight when Misato praised Asuka after the latter fought Sandalphon.
--->So don't give a damn about those armchair Generals second guessing you either Asuka. You're a hell of a pilot - today was the toughest battle we've ever been in and you handled yourself incredibly well. Regardless of our motives going into this, you rose to the challenge today. I'm proud of you - and Rei of course.

* He doesn't say it to her face, but WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's pride and respect for WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick is obvious when he believes TheSmurfettePrinciple is ''her'' creation.
** Despite her usual LackOfEmpathy, she got in first when she affectionately pinched his cheek in the ''{{Ferngully}}'' review for understanding the BigLippedAlligatorMoment.
** In the biggest/sweetest WHAM moment in WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee, Critic gets a YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre talk ''[[spoiler: from Doug Walker himself]]''.
* When sick, Tacoma from WebVideo/DemoReel admits that all he's ever wanted to do was make someone proud. Donnie being [[DesperatelyCravesAffection Donnie]], immediately gives it to him.
-->'''Donnie''': [cuddling Tacoma's head] I will avenge you.
* In episode 51 of ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'', Future Trunks finally stands up to Vegeta after enduring several episodes' worth of abuse from his (alternate timeline) father and blasts Vegeta over the horizon. As a result, Vegeta feels {{Pride}} [[SoProudOfYou in someone else]] for the first time... but it's quickly overshadowed by "[[UnstoppableRage UNYIELDING RAGE!]]"

* In ''Fanfic/NeonGenesisEvangelionGenocide'':
** After Shinji makes amends with Asuka, Misato tells that she's proud of him:
--->He felt her move, heard the rustle of skin and cloth as she rose from the chair. Then he felt her hand on his knee. "You were there for her, and that's hard enough," she said, so quietly it was barely a whisper. Yet the depth of her caring was obvious and welcome.\\
When he failed to react to her touch, she added, "It's been a bad day for everyone. Don't feel like you have to worry about homework tonight. You've earned a little break. I'm proud of you."\\
Shinji could not tell her how much those words meant to him, nor refuse to accept the weight they placed on his shoulders.
** Unexpectedly, Shinji gets praise of his father after telling he doesn't want to forget his mother, not matter how much it hurts:
--->"I I don't believe that," Shinji brought up his head. "I won't forget about mother. I miss her, and it hurts, but I won't forget."\\
Gendo's hard, dark eyes met him, his features carved out of stone, completely devoid of any emotion, good or bad.
Shinji stood his ground, even though he knew he sounded like a little boy who missed his mother. For better or worse, that was exactly what he was. Gendo could admonish him for it, but it was the truth, and he would rather live missing his mother than forget her because it hurt too much. His father had forgotten; to Shinji that was yet another sin.\\
To his surprise, Gendo nodded. "Then you are a stronger man than I."
