* ''FanFic/TheThreeKingsHunt'': James Andrews is mentally and physically abusive towards his wife and both his children. The fic does a good job of portraying the issues that arise from abusive homes from [[spoiler: Ryou's mental instability (kleptomania & insomnia etc.) to Amane's anger management issues]]
* ''FanFic/OnceUponATimeAbridged'': The author uses this trope to convey just how hardened, warped in their romantic plotlines or blunt the characters tend to be with their children in the original. It mostly verges on HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood [[spoiler: [[TearJerker untill a more serious moment comes out of nowhere]]]].
* Pete is clearly a psychologically {{Abusive Parent|s}} in the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' canon, but in the fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8563044/1/Anything-Or-Nothing Anything Or Nothing]],'' the author extends it to physical abuse. [[SocialServicesDoesNotExist The lack of Social Services]] is explained by PJ (and his mother Peg) being too afraid of Pete to alert anybody to the problems. Consensus among reviewers is that it's frighteningly realistic in the portrayal of the abuse and how it is covered up by the family from friends and authority figures.
* Shows up a lot in ''{{Fanfic/Brainbent}}''. More prominent examples include Rose's mom (emotional/psychological) and Dave's older brother (extremely neglectful; emotionally and possibly sexually abusive)).
%%* Matt's dad from ''PartRightHalfWrongAThirdCrazy.''
* Tabitha's parents from Total Drama Letterz not only encourage their daughter to eliminate other campers on Total Drama, but they'll also beat her to near death for the slightest failure.
* There's quite a few Franchise/HarryPotter fics out there that take the Dursleys' abusiveness and ramp it up to eleven. One particularly painful example is ''Whelp,'' which begins with Vernon punishing a seven year old Harry with no food [after he had previously spent two nights without food] for not cleaning the patio, even though he did clean it before Dudley tracked mud all over it. Then, when Harry tries sneaking out of his cupboard while everyone's asleep and eating from the garbage, Vernon catches him in the act and punches him in the face numerous times before locking him outside. Petunia wakes him up by spraying him with the hose, and when Vernon comes home he chains Harry up like a dog in the backyard, and gives him nothing but water and dog food for dinner. Needless to say, it is IMMENSELY satisfying when Snape comes into the picture...
* ''FanFic/{{Hivefled}}'', 'nuff said. Further elaboration; the Grand Highblood and the Condesce went out of their way to have offspring and track them down, against the social norms of their society, specifically so they could do terrible things to them.
* In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfiction, it's a FandomSpecificPlot that Scootaloo's unseen-in-the-show parents are abusive in some way.
** One example is in ''FanFic/TheNuptialverse'', where they are emotionally abusive, constantly treating her like a foal and putting her down. [[spoiler: When she stands up to her father, he starts beating her.]]
*** In the same series, [[spoiler: Pinkie Pie's father became emotionally distant after his mother died, culminating in hitting Pinkie and accusing her of wasting his time when she got a cutie mark he didn't approve of (her mother didn't partake, but didn't stop him). This led to Pinkie running away and ending up in Ponyville.]] Unlike most examples, however, they're revealed to have eventually [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone regretted]] what they'd done and try to make amends.
* In ''Fanfic/GettingBackOnYourHooves'', Trixie's father appears to have been of the emotional variety [[spoiler: though [[CainAndAbel Checker]] was actually making it seem worse than it was.]]
** Helping Hoof's father forced him to act exactly the way he thought he should act, never letting him do what he wanted. As a result, [[spoiler:he never got his cutie mark.]] Because of this, he called him worthless and belittled him, driving him to work for Checker.
* The FanFic/TriptychContinuum has multiple examples, usually related to a parent being disappointed in a child's cutie mark. [[spoiler: Pinkie's father was extremely abusive to her, as she displayed an apparent lack of earth pony magic even before her mark manifested.]]
** For [[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/131321/a-mark-of-appeal A Mark Of Appeal]], the parents of Joyous Release are implied to have simply abandoned her after her mark turned out to be different from theirs. (Both parents are weather surveyors: Joyous has what appears to be a unique mark for ''sex appeal'' -- which she can't turn off.) [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope However, it turned out their marks had consumed them and effectively made them unable to operate outside the context of their talents: they seem incapable of thinking about anything beyond a minute or so unless it relates to weather survey.]]]]
* ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'': It seems that when Drago was [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]] by Lo Pei, Shendu intentionally left him that way in order to "build character".
** Jade's parents almost veer into this from ParentalNeglect; Tarakudo uncovers in a dream that after injuring herself exploring (sliding down a banister), her mother's reaction was to spank her for disturbing the adults' party rather than concern for Jade's well being (she ran into a statue at the end of the railing and had severe bruising and was crying). Jade truly considers going to live with Jackie to be the best thing that ever happened to her before she went evil.
* Calvin's mother in ''Fanfic/CalvinAndHobbesTheSeries'' is generally portrayed more or less as she is in [[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes the original strip]], except for a brief incident wherein she ''beats her son with a broom'' for ruining her laundry. It can be inferred as a {{homage}} to [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Tom]] suffering the same punishment, but the shift from pet owner to biological mother ends up making it ooze UnfortunateImplications.
* The notorious ''Fanfic/ShinraHighSOLDIER'' has three prominent examples: Julia's mother and father forced her into prostitution when she was younger and locked her up in a mental institution for three years. Her father beat and raped her, and ultimately tried to kill her. Hojo has been physically and mentally abusing Sephiroth since he was born.
* There are a few examples in ''Fanfic/TheLionKingAdventures'':
** Tama's parents are abusive, thus causing her evil streak.
** [[spoiler: The possessed Mufasa and Sarabi in Series Four would also count.]]
** Shocker's parents are also strongly implied to be this.
* Chet's parents in the ''WesternAnimation/MonstersUniversity'' fic ''FanFic/BornToPlease''. His father is a psychotic drunk who regularly beats and ''rapes'' his wife and children, including Chet.
** Javier's parents arent much better, they kicked him out of home when he was in his teens, forcing him to have to deal drugs and even [[spoiler: prostitute himself]] while living on the streets to get by.
* Mei Shirakawa's parents in the ''FanFic/{{Horseshoes and Hand Grenades}}'' sidestory ''Wheel of Fortune'' don't care about the problems their daughter has to go through regarding Yamada Tatsumori's tyranny over her High School, with the mom going as far as to leave Mei in the hospital despite going there to check on one of her friends. [[spoiler: It's later revealed that she was supposed to be the next heir to a family fortune by showcasing her untapped psychic powers which are attuned to her stress levels. The parents emotionally abuse her to get the powers to spike. They get killed off by Renenutet.]]
* Done with several characters in the companion series ''[[FanFic/UltimateSleepwalker Ultimate Sleepwalker: The New Dreams]]'' and ''[[FanFic/UltimateSpiderWoman Ultimate Spider-Woman: Change With The Light]]:''
** Mary Jane Watson grew up in a broken home, as she and her mother suffered appalling physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her father. This left Mary Jane with some major anger issues, and she originally becomes a superheroine for no better reason than to spite her superhero-hating father. A major part of her CharacterDevelopment involves Mary Jane coming to terms with her childhood and fighting crime for the right reasons.
** Little [[TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]] was [[spoiler:[[ParentalIncest molested]] by his [[{{Yandere}} psychotic mother Rebecca Banner]], who also viciously intimidated Bruce's father Brian to keep him from protecting their son.]] The anger Bruce felt at what was done to him, and his hatred of his father's pathetic weakness, were both major factors in his being so unstable when he became the Hulk.
** Spider-Woman's enemy Polestar was repeatedly humiliated and ridiculed by his parents for not being as athletic as his older brother or as academically gifted as his younger sister. When he gained superhuman powers, one of the reasons he became a supervillain was specifically to humiliate his family by being associated with him.
** The [[NormanOsborn Green Goblin]] became an obsessive control freak who enjoyed terrorizing the people around him after he saw the way his father had destroyed the family fortune through his drunken binges and lack of self-control.
** It's heavily implied that the reason that the Brothers Grimm became such {{Psychopathic Manchild}}ren was because of all the cocaine their mother did while she was pregnant with them.
* In the FairlyOddparents fanfiction, ''Fanfic/NeverHadAFriendLikeMe'', [[OriginalCharacter Amanda's]] parents are never going to win a parenting award. They never wanted kids and don't want to waste time, energy, or money on the one they ended up with. They aren't physically abusive towards her. Emotionally and mentally, however... Well, when even [[JerkassGenie Norm]] feels bad for you, you ''know'' that the kid deserves a break.
* While Vesser's parents in ''Webcomic/HannaIsNotABoysName'' fall squarely into this trope, his dad reaches new lows in {{Fanfic/Lightwaves}}. In Vesser's backstory chapter, it's revealed that he got his selkie wife to marry him by forcing her to do so in exchange for protection. When she begs to be allowed to return to the sea, when Vesser's sixteen, he responds by hitting her and then hits Vesser for the [[SarcasmMode horrible crime]] of staring in horror at the action. When Vesser, reacting purely in fear, bites his dad, Mr. Hatch reacts by calling the police to have his wife and son be ''arrested'' as Undesirables, leading to Mrs. Hatch's death and Vesser becoming an outlaw. The entire thing basically turns Vesser against all humans in the city.
* In ''Fanfic/DeadOfTheNight'', [[HannaIsNotABoysName Conrad's]] dad berated his son for "terrible" life choices like wanting to be an artist, generally belittling him at every chance he got, before leaving the family. Conrad's mom, meanwhile, subjected her son to her many, many anxieties, leaving him something of a nervous wreck. On Vesser's side of things, his mother was implied to be crazy (even by selkie standards) and couldn't decide if she wanted him around or not, so she enchanted Lee into watching Vesser while she was in the ocean for years on end.
* In ''FanFic/MegaManDefenderOfTheHumanRace'', Dr. Wily's father was this. It helped color his outlook on life.
* In ''FanFic/YetAgain'', Hinata and Gaara deal with theirs in different ways. Hinata grows a backbone, promptly snaps from all the stress and repressed sexual tension, and shows her entire clan what she's capable of, effectively scaring them into submission. Gaara simply allows Orochimaru to kill his father... again.
* John Gage in [[http://www.tbillingsemergencyfanfic.com/storiesbytammy.htm this]] series of ''{{Series/Emergency}}'' had abusive uncles as surrogate parents in his backstory. So very,very much. They had him after his parents died and it was not pretty. His aunt rescued him eventually.
* In the ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' ContinuationFic ''FanFic/ShadowOfTheDragon'', [[TheBully school bully]] Satome's mother Himiko, Tomoeda's district attorney, is revealed to be one, constantly beating him because he is the [[ChildByRape product of rape]] and she only sees him as a reminder of said rape; as a result, Satome has become a StrawMisogynist and [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil serial rapist]]. In chapter 19, when Satome is in jail for his AttemptedRape of Tomoyo, he tells the lawyer assigned to him that his mother put him in the hospital ''eight times'' for a total of fifteen broken bones, and that he's perfectly willing to confess to ''all'' of his rape charges as long as it keeps him away from his mother until he's twenty. Shortly after, however, his mother arranges for him to be assassinated and his death ruled as a suicide because his status as a rapist would reflect poorly on her career of prosecuting sexual predators.
* The ''Manga/ElfenLied'' fic ''FanFic/FamilySticksTogether'' has this in the backstory of Alex. Prior to ending up in the orphanage, Alex lived with his maternal uncle, who beat him regularly, called him a freak, and locked him out of the house to fend for himself. When conversing with the [[DeadPersonConversation spirit of his mother]] in chapter 10, she explains that she left the infant Alex in his uncle's care to [[DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou protect him]] from Director Kakuzawa and his {{mook}}s, though she admits that, given his uncle's treatment of her son, it probably wasn't the best choice.
* In the PrettyCure fan fic, ''FanFic/TwilightPrettyCure'', the BigBad of the series, Zenjin, was abused by whom the fairies call an evil woman before the Rozanielans rescued him. Nobody knows who the woman is. It's implied that this caused his sociopathic, psychopathic, and homicidal tendencies.
* In [[FanFic/Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXI]], while not her mother, at least technically, Kanako clearly fits in that she would beat Sanae to vent frustrations and over minor infractions. It was noted throughout the rest of the series that, while she regretted abusing her, she didn't get a chance at redemption, as Sanae had died(before being brought back from the dead through Yukari's reality warping).
* Ghetsis displays this type of behavior in FanFic/NaturalLiberated, although N is not technically his biological son. He exposes N to abused Pokemon in order to make him believe that he must free them from trainers. Such abuse is the FreudianExcuse that N uses to justify his freeing of Pokemon from people, the first and the second time.
