* The title character in ''Manga/TheLegendOfMotherSarah'' is pretty much the epitome of this trope in Japanese media, as the series' title implies. The story is basically about Sarah, a DeterminedWidow who lost her children Tsurumi and Harato years ago, and is now WalkingTheEarth to find them again. Needless to say the "reunion" won't be that easy: their "Earth" is a a MadMax world after a terrorist attack threw it into confusion - so to find the kids, Sarah kicks ass. '''Hard.'''

** Most recently we have Portgas D. Rouge, the mother of Ace. [[spoiler: To escape detection by Marines searching for children being born at that time in an attempt to find the child of Gold Roger, Rouge withheld giving birth and bore her baby in her womb for ''twenty months'' out of sheer willpower before finally having him. [[DeathByChildbirth The act ultimately killed Rouge]], but allowed Ace (who would take up her surname instead of his father's to honor her) to grow up in relative safety under the care of Garp and alongside his grandson, Luffy.]]

** [[spoiler: Sanji]]'s mother, Vinsmoke Sora, was a pretty impressive one as well. [[spoiler: Her husband Judge experimented on Sanji and his brothers (Ichiji, Niji and Yonji) when they were ''still in Sora's womb'' to make them badass yet emotionless {{tyke bomb}}s, and he hads already experimented on their older daughter Reiju. So she prepared and ingested a ''very'' dangerous drug to undo said enhancements, fully knowing that it would ruin her health. Even when only [[WhiteSheep Sanji]] was saved, Sora (who became an IllGirl and died few years afterwads) believed this to be completely WorthIt.

*** Oh, it's much more than that. [[spoiler: When she realizes that their bodies alone won't stop the Kyuubi, Kushina reaches out and ''grabs hold of the claw, physically stopping it through sheer force of will.'' This thing is much too big for even ''Tsunade'' to lift, and Kushina is at the weakest she's ever been in her life. She then proceeds to ''[[BadAss taunt Minato by saying if the father can die for his son the mother can do it even better.]]'']]

** [[BadassTeacher Izumi]] is practically Ed and Al's second mother. She barges into Greed's hideout to rescue Al after taking down one of the homunculus' cronies. Add to that her furious introduction and, well...they learned why it's an extremely bad idea to piss off one of the most {{Badass}} characters in the ''[[WorldOfBadass entire story.]]''

** Seriously, don't mess with Vivio. In ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs A's]]'', the season before ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'', Nanoha loads three cartridges into Raising Heart as a prelude to blasting an [[EldritchAbomination Eldrich Abomination]] that has a habit of destroying entire worlds; just before she lets all hell loose on the poor sap who kidnapped Vivio, she loads '''five'''- then slaps in a second clip. The results are satisfyingly explosive.

* ''{{Shiki}}'' gives us a couple of darker takes on this trope. The more straightforward is Chizuko Murasako, sister-in-law to [[JerkassWoobie Masao Murasako]], who eagerly takes up the mantle of killing vampires once they learn that [[spoiler: they're the ones who killed her son]], and who even [[spoiler: ''kills Masao'' when he comes to her begging for help at the end (having become a vampire sometime previously)]]. Then there's Motoko Maeda, [[spoiler: who is driven into deep insanity as her children are picked off one by one, and eventually retaliates by ''burning down the entire village!'']] ''Shiki'' being ''[[GreyAndGrayMorality Shi]][[HumansAreTheRealMonsters ki]]'', neither one is a truly heroic character, though both are fairly sympathetic as these things go.

** As of 547, [[spoiler: we have another one in the form of Gaara's mother Karura. She was determined to protect her son, enough so that ''dying'' wasn't enough to stop her. Remember ow Gaara said that he believed his sand was commanded by his mother's spirit? It turns out that '''he was right'''.]]
