* ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' has Lyn "Laeil" Burbank. While actually a niece rather than a daughter, her uncle and aunt still give her the same unfavorite treatment, treating her like something that just has to be tolerated, while lavishing all their attention on her JerkJock cousin, Anthony, who regularily makes her life hell. Once she's on the island, though, it isn't long before she gets [[CainAndAbel bloody revenge]] on him.

* Monette of ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' was the Unfavorite of her biological father (we're not quite sure where her mother is in all of this). When her father gained custody of her and her sisters, he dropped her off at her grandmother's house. While Grandma was on vacation. Grandma also kept pit bulls. And her father tied raw steaks to her head. Oh, and did we mention that at the time she was less than a year old? Of course, being ''SomethingPositive'', this is generally played for laughs; however, it's given genuine emotion when her father visits her for Thanksgiving at the [=MacIntire=] residence in Texas. His ill treatment of her is what prompts Faye and Fred to adopt her and make her ''their'' daughter.

** 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 ReassignmentToAntarctica. 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.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheBossBaby'', this is what Tim fears becoming following the arrival of the Boss Baby; it's what the Boss Baby fears babies will become to puppies if Francis E. Francis's plan succeeds. In the end, Tim's [[spoiler:act of kindness in inviting the Boss Baby back into his family]] inspires the Boss Baby to [[spoiler:do something that ratchets love for both babies ''and'' puppies, as well as several other things, up to 999% before quitting Baby Corp and allowing himself to be born as a normal baby so that he can join Tim's family.]]

* Alluka from ''HunterXHunter'' is not even considered as a family member of the Zoldyck because her ability is too difficult to control and could kill all of them. The only one who loves her is Killua.

* Though it may not be confirmed as we never see his parents,Nozomi Suemitsu aka the Gourmet King from ''{{Persona 3}}'',[[spoiler:he constantly in his older and less rotund bother's shadow]]
** VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} takes this trope a step further with Kou Ichijo. [[spoiler: It's revealed that Kou was raised in an OrphanageOfLove and then adopted as a child because his adoptive parents thought they couldn't have any children of their own... until they actually do. When they do, Kou feels that they've literally cast him to the side now that they have a "real" child.]]

** Samwell Tarly is at the Wall because his father threatened to ''murder'' him if he didn't "voluntarily" remove himself from the line of inheritance. Ouch. In the books, this was after a long series of failed attempts to make him a man, including taking him to whorehouses, making him sleep in chainmail, forcing him to walk around in a dress to shame him into manliness, and bathing him in blood. Eventually, Lord Randyll's wife gave him another son, allowing why he could dispense with his girly-man firstborn. Incidentally, Randyll Tarly has achieved MemeticBadass status amongst the book fandom... but do you know, I don't think they meant it entirely as a compliment.
