* {{Inverted}} in TheBible; when Jesus was on the cross, he saw his mother, Mary, standing with "the disciple whom he loved" and instructed him to take care of her from now on, which he did. Mary was presumably widowed by that point, and in ancient Judean culture would have needed a grown son for financial support. (Whether or not she had others is [[http://www.uscatholic.org/articles/201312/did-jesus-have-brothers-and-sisters-28224 open for debate]]).

* In ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit,'' this is both the main plot and back story: when the Second Queen of Yogo suspects that her husband is trying to kill their son [[WiseBeyondTheirYears Chagum]], she tasks [[LadyOfWar Balsa]], a warrior-woman who happened to stop the most recent assassination attempt, to run away with him and keep him safe. As the series progresses, we learn that Balsa herself was once the "kid" in this trope, being taken in by a warrior named [[PapaWolf Jigoro]] on her dying father's request. A WholeEpisodeFlashback later fills in the details.
