* One of the Franchise/LawAndOrder shows (either the original or [[Series/LawAndOrderSVU SVU]]) has a relatively realistic version. The detectives encounter a young teen who is all but homeless because her mother is suffering from some kind of mental disorder that causes her to not recognize her daughter ''as'' her daughter. She is able to recognize her daughter's voice and pleads to see her, but upon actually ''seeing'' her, she immediately rejects her as a stranger.

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'': This is Big Boss's initial reaction to the Snake brothers, who are his clones; in fact, the discovery that Zero and Para-Medic had cloned him in the first place was the final straw that led to him [[DefectorFromDecadence leaving the Patriots for good]]. He eventually comes around, though. [[spoiler:Sadly, by the time he does, only one of the three is still alive. And then Big Boss dies before he can really spend any time with him.]] Still, he always respected Solid Snake as a man and a soldier, and personally mentored him.

* ''Webcomic/DestroyerOfLight'': Persephone has an abortion, and the embryo, once outside, turns into a snake. When they catch the snake, it turns into a grapevine. Her reaction? Calling the thing "mommy's boy" - she ''likes'' plants. She's a goddess, so some weirdness was to be expected. [[spoiler: She eventually gets "it" to Zeus, so that he can ... continue the pregnancy, or whatever, and never acknowledges her child, but that's more because she's MaternallyChallenged.]]

* A downplayed example in ''Film/{{Logan}}'': [[Comicbook/{{X 23}} Laura]] is Logan's daughter, via genetic material salvaged from the Weapon X project, and Logan spends much of the film distancing himself from her. [[spoiler:Upon reaching the other X-23 kids, Logan outright states that he'll be leaving her alone after they cross the border into Canada. He eventually has a [[CharacterDevelopment change of heart]], but not long after he's [[DyingDeclarationOfLove mortally wounded]].]] It's downplayed in that it's not so much because of Laura, as it is Logan's [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies jaded attitude]] when it comes to relationships, and he's pushing her away to protect her.

** Averted with [[spoiler:Quint Nakajima]], who took in two combat cyborgs she rescued from an illegal research facility and raised them as her daughters, only to later discover that they had been illegally cloned from her. We never do find out how she felt about having her DNA used for making SuperSoldiers, but she definitely didn't hate her children for it. [[GoodParents Quite the opposite, actually]].

* Played with in the ''Literature/RiversOfLondon'' book ''Foxglove Summer'': A woman whose daughter went missing [[spoiler: when she followed a unicorn to Fairyland]] is adamant what what returned isn't her daughter. It turns out [[spoiler: her daughter ''was'' replaced by a changeling, but that happened eleven years earlier; the magical nightmare now in her house ''is'' her biological daughter. Once this is explained to her, she still says that her ''real'' daughter is the girl she raised, wherever she came from.]]
