* Bonnie Jones nee King, Cissie Jones-King aka Arrowette's mother from ''Comicbook/YoungJustice'' in TheDCU, was a superhero stage mother, pushing her daughter into becoming a superhero because of her own frustrated ambitions. In issue #7, this angered Wonder Girl's mother, who has the exact opposite attitude towards her daughter Cassie's heroics. She called out Bonnie on caring more about fame than her daughter's safety, asking whether she even knew that Arrowette had recently taken an arrow through the shoulder. This resulted in a CatFight.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'' has a brotherly example with Siegfried pushing his younger brother Leon to beat Yugi even if it means cheating. Joey lampshades this in the dub.
-->'''Siegfried:''' Now crush Yugi Muto just like we rehearsed it a thousand times!\\
'''Joey:''' Sheesh... Who knew Siggy was such a stage mom.

* [[http://archive.apsportseditors.org/contest/2002/writing/over250/over250.enterprise.fifth2.html Bill Butterfield]] was a man from [[UsefulNotes/DFWMetroplex suburban Dallas]] whose athletic aspirations were cut short in high school [[TeenPregnancy when his girlfriend became pregnant]]. He then tried to mold both his sons into sports stars in his place, through a strict diet and training regimen and years of verbal and emotional abuse. His elder son Billy eventually just walked away, leaving his father to focus on younger son Lance, who was eight at the time. Over the years, Bill became [[AbusiveParents increasingly controlling, abusive, and crazy towards Lance]], dictating his life, recording his matches, giving him steroids, and eventually beating him daily. His wife sometimes tried to intervene, only to be cowed into submission herself. Eventually, on December 27, 1995, [[SelfMadeOrphan Lance]] [[TheDogBitesBack snapped and shot him dead]]. It's telling that, at Lance's murder trial, it was the ''prosecution'' that was booed by the crowd, and while the defense fielded dozens of character witnesses for Lance, including Bill's own sister and father (the latter writing a sworn affidavit that Lance shouldn't be prosecuted), the prosecution could not find a single person who would testify that Bill Butterfield was a good man.

* A common nickname for Kris Jenner (mother of Creator/{{Kim|Kardashian}}, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner) is PMK -- short for "Pimp Mama Kris", due to the perception that she forced her daughters into RealityTV stardom and modeling careers as a means of living out her own dreams of fortune and celebrity.
