* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': A non-parental example in that Kaeloo seems to favor Quack Quack over Stumpy. The most jarring example is in Episode 2, where Stumpy falls severely sick and Kaeloo neglects him and gives medical treatment to Quack Quack, ''who is perfectly fine''.

** In Season 3, Cersei's father makes it clear that due to her failure to control Joffrey, he regards her as little better than Tyrion. Also note that while Tywin may not ''like'' Tyrion, he does respect Tyrion's intelligence and in this respect treats him as an equal. The same can't be said for Cersei.



** Played straight with Jon regarding Catelyn as he's a constant reminder of the one time Ned's honor faltered; as far as she's concerned, his joining the Night's Watch is a much-needed reassignment to Antarctica. Subverted in that his father, siblings, and uncle all clearly love him. Also the only brother Theon doesn't give a toss about, probably because Theon's not a Stark while Jon's not a legal Stark, but Ned actually acknowledges and loves Jon.

* Played With in ''Series/StillStanding''. While Bill and Judy aren't the best parents to any of their three children, they relate the Brian the least due to Brian being very nerdy and effeminate, even announcing that they won't know who he is if he fails at something. One time, they even stole money from him.

* In the new ''Film/{{Thor}}'' movie, Loki's StartOfDarkness is a result of his jealousy over the fact that his father, Odin, has always favored his brother Thor. [[spoiler: It turns out that Odin chose Thor to succeed the throne of Asgard because Loki is adopted, and isn't Asgardian. Loki could never have ruled no matter what Odin's preference was. Odin's actual feelings towards Loki are left ambiguous -- it could be that he genuinely loves Loki as a son, or it could be that he only took the boy in to use as a political pawn.]]

* ''{{Taxi}}'': Alex's sister Charlotte worriedly drops by to tell him their father Joe had suffered a heart attack. Contrary to what she expected, Alex doesn't even mind. May sound like an ''uncharacteristically'' selfish act from him, but it turns out in a later conversation that apart from deserting the family frequently since Alex was a kid, their father lent much less attention to him than to Charlotte, for whom Joe bought a brand-new car as her 21st birthday present.

* Wilhelm II, [[WorldWarOne the last emperor of the German Empire]], was despised by his mother, who even openly refused to write him birthday messages. This may have been a [[FreudianExcuse major contributing factor]] for him to grow up to be arsehole enough to declare war on one of his closest cousins, "[[RomanovsAndRevolutions Nikki]]").

* [[ComicBook/Marvel2099 Paul-Philip Ravage]] suffered from this quite a bit. Didn't help that his was a family of backstabbing businessmen, all of whom immediately began plotting his downfall when he started proposing ''actual'' solutions to pollution problems. [[spoiler: And by the time he was winning his father's respect, he began losing his human form...]]
* Jimmy in the ComicBook/{{Chick tract|s}} "Unloved," as his parents refuse to attend his high school graduation, constantly tell him he's inferior to his sister, criticize his choice of a wife for having kids (and she later leaves him with all his money) and disown him after he asks to borrow money. Strangely enough, while his sister always does better in their eyes, [[FridgeLogic they don't even bother to attend her wedding]].
