Added DiffLines:
* In ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' 2, in the "Hell Valley" timeline, Biff is definitely one of these, very casually planning to kill Marty. * A SerialKiller PaterFamilicide would definitely qualify, as shown in ''Film/TheStepfather''.

* ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' plays with this. Battler gets along with his stepmother, Kyrie and his half-sister Ange despite leaving home for six years due to his father remarrying TooSoon after his mother's death. Then later arcs reveal that Kyrie ''hated'' his mother, Asumu. [[{{Yandere}} A lot]]. To the point where [[spoiler:she flat out states that if Asumu hadn't died on her own, she would have killed her. Then the penultimate arc reveals that she doesn't even care for her own daughter. Oh, and it turns out that Kyrie is actually Battler's ''real'' mother.]] How much of this is true is... [[MindScrew Debatable]].

** Juno/Hera is an aversion, but only because she can be just as awful to her own kids. Yeah, she drove Hercules insane so that he killed his wife and kids, but she also threw her own son, Hephaestus, off Mount Olympus for being ugly.

* In ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Kaneki's aunt seemed to have been following the Evil Stepmother handbook. After being partially responsible for her sister's death from overwork, she turns her resentment on her newly-orphaned nephew -- accusing him of purposefully making her own son look bad by getting good grades. Kaneki recalls that she slowly phased him out of all family interaction, first reducing the amount of food he was given at meals before finally just leaving him minimal funds to purchase his own food. She also threw [[TragicKeepsake his father's books]], while pretending she was doing him a favor by "cleaning his room". By the time of the story, she has long since stopped having any contact with him.

* Invoked by Layla Miller of ''XFactor'' Investigations. She asked a client why did she think her stepmother could have done something terrible, aside for the ''"stepmothers are evil trope"''.

* Max in ''Literature/CodexAlera'' is a HeroicBastard, the illegitimate older son of the High Lord on Antillus. Trouble is, Antillus married after he was born for political reasons, and he has a legitimate son, Crassus. Maximus has no intention of challenging Crassus's position as heir- however, Lady Antillus would prefer that the threat be eliminated so there's no way her son's inheritance can be threatened. As such, Max's mother died in an "[[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident accident]]", and he's been dodging similar attempts on his life since he was 14.

Ironically, Maximus and Crassus are [[BashBrothers extremely close and often work together.]]
