** The Queen Bee is perfectly content to leave you alone as you wander through the Underground Jungle... so long as you don't smash a larva resting inside one of her hives (or pull out an Abeemination).
** Plantera may be another case, resembling a fully grown version of her bulbs and only appearing to fight you when you break one.

** Also, the backstory involves one of them ''kicking off the whole plot''! [[spoiler: She is the Avatar's own mother, who at some point escaped [[ReligionOfEvil the Grimleal]] cult [[DeliverUsFromEvil with her and Validar's baby son/daughter]], to protect him/her from becoming Grima's vessel. If not for her intervention, [[SpannerInTheWorks Validar ad Grima's plans would've worked perfectly]].]]

* What spurs Samus Aran to action in ''VideoGame/SuperMetroid'' is the Space Pirates stealing the baby Metroid that thinks she is its mother. Here, though, it's less motherly affection and more that letting the Space Pirates get their hands on a Metroid is an ''unspeakably'' bad idea.

* When Eyvel from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Thracia 776]]'' first came across a little Mareeta at a slave market, she slaughtered all the traders and guards and promptly adopted the small girl as her own. ([[OverratedAndUnderleveled If only her in-game stats were better.]]) Her raging maternal instincts are likely a result of [[spoiler:the children she lost after getting amnesia. Her epilogue has her recovering her memories and reuniting with them.]]

* [[spoiler:Pretty much every female character who bears a child]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening''. Of special note is Chrom's wife (whether she's [[PlayerCharacter The Avatar]], [[DorkKnight Sumia]], [[WhiteMagicianGirl Maribelle]], [[ActionGirl Sully]] or [[ReluctantWarrior Olivia]]): she ''is'' given the chance to [[StayInTheKitchen stay behind in Ylisse]] with their newborn child [[spoiler: Lucina]] when Chrom prepares to go to war against Valm, but [[PluckyGirl she]] utterly ''refuses'' and insists to go with him and their BadassCrew.

* Similarly, [[spoiler: every female character who bears a child]] in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' will be this to her kid, including [[PlayerCharacter a Female Avatar]] and [[LadyOfWar Azura.]]
* Averted and then played straight in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. During the first Humbaba fight, Terra attempts to stand up to the demon to protect the orphans of Mobliz, [[ParentalSubstitute having become their surrogate mother]]. However, the emotional turmoil she's gone through has robbed her of her Esper powers, and Humbaba easily defeats her. When the party returns, Humbaba attacks again... but he didn't realize that not only were two of the (teenaged) orphans going to have a baby together, but also that the annoying party attacking him was Terra's TrueCompanions. The ensuing fight has Terra in [[SuperMode Esper Mode]] ''for the entire battle''.
* Hope's mother, Nora Estheim, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'', Unfortunately, she dies mere moments later. But it's the thought that counts.

** Lightning gets a PromotionToParent for her younger sister, who gets kidnapped and [[FateWorseThanDeath turned into a L'Cie.]] Lightning is a SuperSoldier military woman who blows up a train, decimates a military unit, hijacks equipment to break into an ancient temple, and takes on a god-like being to rescue her ''in the first hour of the game''.
** Lightning starts out dismissive of Hope and impatient with his neediness born from the trauma of the above spoiler. In a fit of frustration she tries to abandon him. This triggers the appearance of her Eidolon Odin, who tries to strike down Hope. At the moment of truth, Lightning defends Hope from Odin, passing the challenge all L'Cie must face. From that point on, Lightning acts as a Mama Bear to Hope as well, though Hope eventually outgrows the need for one thanks to his own CharacterDevelopment.

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', there is a new talent in the druid class' Feral tree called "Protector of the Pack." It increases your attack power and decreases the amount of damage you take for every member in your party. For those who've never played, druids in bear-form are essentially [[StoneWall meat shields]].

* In ''VideoGame/BaldursGate II: Throne of Baal'', the witch who raised Yaga-Shura and taught him how to render himself invulnerable by turning his heart into a SoulJar initially asks you to retrieve his and her hearts so she can render him mortal since he betrayed her and she wants revenge. Immediately after the ritual is complete, her restored heart causes her feelings of maternal love to return. Realizing that your party will try to kill Yaga-Shura, she attacks your party despite being hopelessly outmatched.

* [[PlayerCharacter The female Commander Shepard]] in the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series, is potentially this depending on how she's played. If played straight, [[BerserkButton threatening her crew is about the]] [[{{Badass}} biggest mistake you could make.]]

This ends up backfiring, though: [[spoiler:Tailto ''does'' manage to save Teeny from physical torture [[HeroicSacrifice by taking it herself]], but it ends up [[KillTheCutie killing her in the end]], and this does ''nothing'' on Teeny's psychology that she became [[ShrinkingViolet shy and withdrawn]] even if she lived.]] It worked well in the end though, because if it wasn't for her protection, Teeny wouldn't have survived long enough to reunite with her brother, join Seliph's Liberation Army and recover from that psychology.
