** 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 refusal, 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 also just a one-legged toy soldier. Hurt and unwilling to argue any longer, the Soldier just prayed she doesn't enter and left, as Rebecca, feeling extremely guilty and ashamed for what she said, tried in vain to get him to stay. Fortunately, they patched things up afterwards, though offscreen. 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 actually inverts 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.]]

* In the Maeve Binchy novel ''Evening Class'', a character has just learned that her oldest sister is in fact her mother. Several days later, her "father" (actually grandfather) asks her to run an errand for him. When she refuses, still upset at the revelation and deception, he sternly tells her "no child of mine is going to speak to me like that". She responds by coldly declaring, "I'm NOT a child of yours.", thus revealing that she knows the secret. After a {{Beat}} in which this sinks in, he tells her essentially HAS been a father to her these past 16 years and even if not, he's still her grandfather and deserving of respect.

** To be fair, dealing with her ''real'' father and grandmother soon prompted her to declare "I have a family!" and jump out a tenth story window to escape from them.

* A really bizarre example occurs in the UK science fiction comedy ''{{Hyperdrive}}''. Technical Officer Jeffers is reminiscing about being raised by a computer simulation of his father, created when his father knew he was dying. Then, when Jeffers was fifteen, they got into an argument, and Jeffers said "You're not my real dad! You're just a piece of code!" and deleted the program. He tried to restore it the next day, but couldn't.
