* Ulrich Stern from ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', especially in Season 1.
* Cleveland Jr. is developing shades of this in ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow''.

* Something that Danny, the titular character from WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom wants. His parents are ghost hunters, and his alter-ego is the ghost Phantom that they hate and want to 'rip apart molecule by molecule.' He's understandably afraid of this, and tries to make them grow to respect his ghost-half.

* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': According to the "Meet the Sniper" video, the Sniper's parents do not care for the Sniper's career choice. He spends quite a bit of the video speaking on the phone to his unseen father, who seems to think that the Sniper's some kind of crazed gunman. [[spoiler:Old Wounds reveals that they came to terms with their son's job before being KilledOffForReal, though it took Sniper temporarily dying and going to Heaven for this to come to light and it may or may not have been a hallucination.]]

*** This is explained in the Short film ''Secrets of the Furious Five'' -- Shifu actually adopted Tigress from her orphanage. She ''is'' his daughter for all intents and purposes.

** Angel himself clearly feels this about his strict, religious father. One of the first things he did after becoming a vampire was kill him, thinking that would prove who had the real power. Darla pointed out that now he would ''never'' be able to approve of him. His early CallingCard of slicing a cross in his victims' cheeks may have been a way to spite the man.
*** Angelus later sired an enthusiastic but unimaginative protege named Penn who re-enacted the murder of his family over the centuries over the issue.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/OnceMoreWithFeeling'': Subverted. Shinji used to crave for his father's attention and praise. Now he thinks that he was an idiot for desiring Gendo's approval.

* ''It Runs In The Family'': This TV movie aired on the Disney Channel in the '90s. Set in the summer months circa 1940 and taken from Jean Shepherd's "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash" (the same source material as ''AChristmasStory''). During the movie, Ralphie and the Old Man (Charles Grodin) go fishing every weekend, but fail to catch anything. Until one day when Ralphie is hauling in one huge fish after another, while his father, who didn't get a nibble, looks on in genuine surprise. After awhile, other boats on the lake start to crowd Ralphie and his dad. Jean Shepherd narrates at this point: "My old man never said in so many words, 'I'm proud of you, Ralphie,' but somehow he always let me know that he was proud of me." The Old Man then stands up and shouts to the other boats, "Hey, get lost, we've got a fisherman at work here, give him some room!"
