* The VideoGame/RPGMaker game ''VideoGame/OracleOfTao'' has Ambrosia Brahmin who starts out as a {{Tsundere}} or SugarAndIcePersonality, during the first game. In the PlayableEpilogue, however, she has a daughter that she is very protective of, in her own neurotic way. This is actually [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything written into the code]], in that she [[BerserkButton goes berserk]] if her daughter dies (as does her husband), tells her child she shouldn't eat certain foods ([[HypocriticalHumor which she herself can eat]]), and takes experience loss instead of her daughter in the event of a GameOver.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Almalexia, one of the [[OurElvesAreBetter Dunmeri]] [[PhysicalGod Tribunal]] [[DeityOfHumanOrigin deities]], was very much one in the backstory, along with being an ActionGirl and LadyOfWar. She was very protective over the people of Morrowind, and personally led in the defense of Morrowind several times. She banished [[DestroyerDeity Mehrunes]] [[OmnicidalManiac Dagon]] after an epic battle when he was summoned to destroy Old Mournhold. She (along with [[HornyVikings Nord]] and [[LizardFolk Argonian]] allies) defeated the forces of Ada'Soom Dir Kamal during the [[{{Wutai}} Akaviri]] invasion of Morrowind. However, leading up to the events of ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', the Tribunal lost two of the [[ArtifactOfDoom Tools of Kagrenac]], which are required to recharge their divinity from the [[CosmicKeystone Heart of Lorkhan]], to a [[KingInTheMountain re-formed]] [[BigBad Dagoth Ur]]. This forced the Tribunal to withdraw from the day-to-day affairs of the Dunmer people in order to conserve their divine power and [[BarrierMaiden keep Dagoth Ur's power contained]]. [[spoiler:In ''Morrowind''[='s=] ''Tribunal'' expansion, she [[GoMadFromTheRevelation snaps following the loss of her divine power]] and becomes the {{Face Heel Turn}}ed BigBad, hell bent on killing the other Tribunes and martyring [[PlayerCharacter the Nerevarine]] so that she can have the full love and devotion of the Dunmer people]].
** Namira is the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] of the [[DarkIsNotEvil Ancient Darkness]], associated with [[NightmareFetishist all things revolting]], [[NatureIsNotNice decay]], [[BodyHorror disfiguring diseases]], and [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]]. She is ''very'' protective of her followers, and her quest in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' is to help her followers retaliate against a group of priests who would turn her followers away from her.

** Kangaskhan is extremely protective of its child. If you so much as threaten it, you'll have to deal with a 7 foot tall kangaroo-dinosaur hybrid.
*** In her Mega Evolution form, obtains the ability Parental Bond and becomes the most threatening non-Legendary Pokémon (and stronger than many Legendaries), and by far the most used in competitive game.

* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'':
** 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]].]]

* Never harm a child or a teenager in the vicinity of one [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li]].

* 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.

* 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.
