* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' has Stan trying to get rid of his annoying Chinese in-laws by convincing Francine that they prefer their birth daughter Gwen to her. She really starts believing it when they find the parents' will and discover that everything goes to Gwen. But even after being thrown out, Francine's father comes back to save Stan from a burning building, and he explains the will by saying that Gwen is an AsianAirhead who needs all the help she can get, but Francine is intelligent and can take care of herself, [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments and married a good man]], so they don't worry about her.

** In the 616 timeline this actually would be quite an exaggeration. It seems to have been true of Bobby Drake (Iceman), but none of the other original five (Scott's parents were actually abducted by aliens before getting to see his and his brother's powers manifest), it was not true of Colossus, {{Storm}} (her parents were killed too early), Thunderbird I, Kitty Pryde, Rogue (she ran away from home before her powers manifested), Jubilee (her parents were dead before her powers manifested), and with reference to their human adoptive parents it was not true of ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, the ComicBook/ScarletWitch, Nightcrawler or Comicbook/{{Gambit}} (who was actually preferred to his adoptive father's biological son).

* Appeared in TheGoldenGirls between Dorothy and her sister. Dorothy felt that she was the Unfavorite daughter and Gloria the favorite, but Gloria later points out that Dorothy was actually the favorite, and that Sophia doted on her less because she was the strong, trustworthy one. The real Unfavorite, however, was their brother Phil, who was variously described as a cross-dresser, a moocher and generally trailer-trash. Sophia didn't like his wife or kids much, either.

* "Series/IClaudius" has Claudius as this, his father died while he was still young and his mother prefers the older brother Germanicus. Before she commits suicide she apologises to Claudius for this but says she wished he had died instead of Germanicus. Despite this Germanicus was one of the only people nice to Claudius and when he dies Claudius says he was dearer to him then anybody else.

* Grant Ward from "Series/AgentsOfShield" was implied to be the unfavorite of his whole family for allegedly trying to drown his little brother Thomas and later attempted to burn his parents house down. His older brother, Christian, became a successful Senator. [[spoiler:It was later revealed that both Grant and Christian were the unfavorites of their parents. Thomas was the only one their mother didn't abuse, causing Christian to hate and abuse him (including throwing him down a well and blaming Grant). He also abused Grant. Ward later killed Christian and his parents as revenge.]] * ''Series/NightAndDay'''s Ryan Harper has evidently lived his whole life in sister Jane's shadow, which probably explains why he's so bitter and twisted. Dennis Doyle also feels like an un-favourite since he's the only child in his family who has a different father (or so he thinks), though Alex pretty much treats him like a son.

However, it also seems that even as a boy, nothing Alan did was good enough. Alan's younger brother was always the father's golden boy, despite becoming a venture capitalist, which should have been an anathema to the staunchly unionist father.

* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', Magnus the Red is pretty clearly Emperor's least favorite son. Magnus certainly feels that way.

** Another episode of ''LawAndOrderSVU'' first focused on a Latina girl whom might have been raped by a rich, white, politician's son. At first, the detectives look to charge the son, meanwhile we learn about a Latino boy who was best friends with the rich boy, and his mother whom used to be the house servant for the rich political boy's family before she suddenly quit her job. Her son was in love with the same girl as the rich boy, but the rich boy (whom we find out was a jerkass) got her drunk and took her virginity. Later the rich boy is suddenly murdered and found in a ditch. After many dead ends, the detectives start believing that the mother's son might have done it. They were right, but the reason why, wasn't solely because of the girl alone. The boy found out he was the rich boy's half-brother from an affair the father had with his mother. This was the reason the mother suddenly quit her job. She was also paid not to talk about the affair and cause a scandal. The last scene shows the Latino boy pleading to his political white father, asking why he got rejected and not accepted like his half-brother.

* In ''Series/Seinfeld'', George Costanza is this to his parents compared to Lloyd Braun ("Why can't you be more like Lloyd Braun?"). But Lloyd Braun was in a ''mental institution''. * An episode of ''LawAndOrderSVU'' had the detectives visit a doctor who has a huge portrait of him, his wife, and his two daughters, a doctor and a lawyer, in his office. Later, they discovered the doctor also has a son... who was working as his ''janitor''. Three guesses who turns out to be the violent rapist they're searching for.
