** In the Dressrosa arc, a minor flashback (a few days ago, rather than the usual year gap) showed a heated argument between sixteen-year old Rebecca and her parental figure, the LivingToy Thunder Soldier. The former wanted to participate in a tournament so she could [[spoiler: win the Flame-Flame Fruit and kill Doflamingo]], the latter heavily protested against it, not wanting the young girl to die. His dissuasion, combined with her anger following [[spoiler: Doflamingo's fake resignation from the Seven Warlords of the Sea]], led to her saying that not only is he not her father, but he's nothing more than a one-legged toy soldier. Stricken and unwilling to argue any longer, the Soldier just prayed she doesn't enter and left, as Rebecca, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone feeling extremely guilty and ashamed for what she said]], tried in vain to get him to stay. Fortunately, they reconciled off-screen. It's even more hurtful for the Thunder Soldier because [[spoiler:he ''is'' Rebecca's father. He is in fact the legendary warrior Kyros who was transformed into a toy. Nobody else, not even Rebecca, remembers him because people who are transformed into toys become [[UnPerson unpersoned]]. Then, at the end of the arc she {{invert|ed trope}}s it, tearfully begging him to stop pretending that he's not her father after he spread a rumor that she's the daughter of some foreign prince to spare her the shame of having a murderer for a father.]]
** [[spoiler: Sanji understandably refuses to acknowledge Judge as his father after meeting him again for the first time in years and repeatedly reaffirms this as the two are fighting. He also denies any relation to the Vinsmoke family as a whole.]]

* The end of the ''WesternAnimation/XMen: TAS'' episode, '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAWbrzxNQ5M Beauty and the Beast]] involving Graydon Creed, is a rare example of an adult invoking this. Wolverine attempts to break up the [[FantasticRacism anti-mutant grassroots terrorist group]] "The Friends of Humanity" by broadcasting a hologrammatic profile of the infamous mutant terrorist SAbertooth, which informs the thugs that the mutant's real name is "Graydon Creed ''Senior''". Horrified to learn they've been following the son of a mutant, they promptly abandon him whilst Graydon has a VillanousBreakdown, grabbing a nearby pistol and firing repeatedly at the Sabertooth hologram whilst screaming that Sabertooth isn't his father.

* In the pilot episode of ''WesternAnimation/TomGoesToTheMayor'', we see a brief snippet of one of Tom's home movies, where Tom's stepsons are throwing things at him while chanting "You're not our dad! You're not are dad!" It's PlayedForLaughs, [[DudeNotFunny or at least attempted anyway.]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Uryuu is so angry with his father's [[RefusalOfTheCall rejection]] of the family Quincy lineage that he verbally refuses to call him "Father", using Ryuuken's first name instead. Flashbacks reveal a past argument over it that culminated in Uryuu demanding to know why and being horrified when Ryuuken [[JerkassFacade claims]] there's no money in the lifestyle. It's implied to be the moment when Uryuu lost all respect for his father, as it seems to be the last time Uryuu ever called him "Father" out loud. [[HeroicNeutral Ryuuken]] was actually lying to [[MysteriousPast hide the truth]] but Uryuu hasn't yet realised.
* In ''Manga/FairyTail'', Erza finds out her birth mother is a despicable woman who gave birth to her just so she could take over her body and escape her own horribly cursed body, dumped her in a random village when she failed, and is now actively trying to kill her out of spite. Because of this, Erza has no trouble telling her that her guild is her true family. [[spoiler:When her mother can't bring herself to kill Erza and takes her own life, however, Erza pays her respects by calling her "Mother" for the first and only time]].
