* The video for the PatBenatar song "Love is a Battlefield" has the main character run away from home after a fight with her parents. She ends up dancing at a sleazy club (in the original concept for the video, she was a hooker) until one of the co-workers gets mishandled by their boss; she retaliates with a fierce group dance routine and by [[FoodSlap throwing a drink into the boss' face]] before she and the other workers leave the club. Sadly, the boy who played Benatar's kid brother in the video later ran away from home in real life; no word on what happened to him.

* ''Literature/{{Pinocchio}}'' runs away from his creator/father, Geppetto. The book version is actually far more disturbing than the Disney movie, featuring the puppet being hanged and then nursed back life by the Blue Fairy, before he goes on the run again, and eventually, turns into a donkey, gets swallowed by a whale, and etc.
