* Christa from ''The Walking Dead'' game seems to be like this towards Clementine, and her boyfriend, Omid. Carley is implied to have been this towards her, too.
* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} 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.
** This trait can extend to other Pokémon as well, such as Gardevoir.
* 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.
** Said Metroid [[spoiler:[[AndroclesLion sacrifices itself at the end of the game]] to save Samus. This is where the ''real'' MamaBear reaction takes place, as the Metroid's death also gives Samus her [[EleventhHourSuperpower final weapon]] with which to utterly obliterate Mother Brain. The phrase "CurbStompBattle" doesn't even BEGIN to describe it]].
** The Queen Metroid's reason for attacking Samus in ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'' was also implied to be of this trope, as an egg was seen behind the Queen, and she also spawned several Metroids to take care of Samus in case she intended to kill the remaining hatchling. ''[[VideoGame/MetroidOtherM Other M]]'' also reinforces this theory, as evidenced by her attempt to shatter ice surrounding the various Metroids if frozen to reawaken them.
* 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.]]
** [[{{Tsundere}} Princess]] [[ActionGirl Ayra]] from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' is an Auntie Bear. Her infamous threat at Kinbois comes from him forcing her to do his dirty work -- by using her beloved nephew and protegé Shanan as a DistressedDude.
-->'''Ayra''': "You better not double-cross me, Kinbois, because I'll hunt you down and put your head to a stick! Even if it takes me to the ends of hell! Got it!?"
** Also, even if [[BreakTheCutie she's going through horrifying times]] in between generations, [[spoiler:[[BlackMagicianGirl Tailto]] of Freege]] is ''not'' gonna let her child [[spoiler: Teeny]] take abuse from her [[spoiler: sister-in-law, Hilda]]. This ends up backfiring, tho: [[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.]]
** Basically the reason why Cuan's mother Alfiona told Finn to ask Princess Raquesis for help to protect Leif in the back-story of Leonster's fall. Lachesis is a Master Knight, that is canonically an extremely skilled fighter able to use nearly any weapon, ''and'' would have her very young daughter Nanna to protect [[spoiler: (not to mention, Nanna is all but stated to be Finn's daughter)]] , making her even stronger in the opinion of Lady Alfiona. And it mostly worked, with Raquesis as quite the ParentalSubstitute for Leif [[spoiler: before disappearing in her way to retrieve her son Delmud.]]
* [[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.
** 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]].]]
* 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, 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. Unfortunately for Humbaba, 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 [[spoiler:dies mere moments later]]. But it's the thought that counts.
-->'''Nora''': "Moms are tough."
** 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.
* Cosmos of ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'', who often acts as the TeamMom for her warriors qualifies. Especially when you take into account the fact that [[spoiler:she deliberately allowed herself to be weakened enough to be killed by Chaos to give her warriors the power they'd need to survive her death and last long enough to defeat Chaos and escape the war.]]
* Jade, the heroine of ''VideoGame/BeyondGoodAndEvil'', operates a friendly shelter for war orphans, whom she views as her "children." In the opening sequence of the game, a band of [[AlienInvasion evil aliens]] attempt to kidnap the children from the shelter. Naturally, very bad things happen to said aliens. [[spoiler:Also, near the end of the game, all of the children get kidnapped. After working her way through a HeroicBSOD, her resolve goes UpToEleven, and not a force in the galaxy will stop her from fighting to get her kids back.]]
* [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Lauren Winter]] from ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' couldn't save her son from the Origami Killer, but swears on her son's grave to kill the man who did. [[spoiler: And in one ending, she does just that.]]
* Juno in ''VideoGame/SoulNomadAndTheWorldEaters'' is ''very'' devoted to her adopted son Penn -- considerably more so than the child's biological parent. In [[spoiler:the Demon Path]] this devotion takes on a whole new level of fanaticism when [[spoiler:Juno demands Penn's return after he joins team evil, upon which Revya states that they didn't really want him in the first place]].
-->'''Juno:''' [[spoiler:"What...? You kidnap him, and you don't even want him? What's wrong with him? He's cute! Everyone should want to kidnap him! You will pay for not wanting to kidnap him!"]]
* 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]].
** And Alexstrasza: "Nekrosss...You had them ssslay my children! ''My children!''"
** With the new ''Cataclysm'' expansion, Beauty, the core hound boss, along with her 4 pups, of the new dungeon Blackrock Caverns will one by one 1-hit your entire party if the runt of the litter, creatively named Runty, ever dies.
*** It's kind off weird that killing any of the other puppies doesn't even affect the ferocious mother.
** In the Worgen starting zone, there is a small series of quests involving a Grandma Wahl. One such quests asks you to find her lost cat before the evacuation. Once you find him, you are ambushed by a Forsaken, saying the cat would make good bait. Just as you engage him, Grandma, who we now learn is also a Worgen runs up to save her cat. "You do not mess with my kitty you son of a mongrel!"
* In the 7th ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' game, ''Perfect Cherry Blossom'', the player encounters Chen as the stage 2 boss. When the player encounters and defeats Chen a second time on the Extra Stage, they are soon greeted by Chen's master, Ran Yakumo, who is not at all pleased with the protagonist's treatment of Chen. Cue the game's difficult BonusBoss battle. From this scene, many fans have interpreted Ran and Chen's relationship as being like mother and daughter.
* Melissa from ''VideoGame/{{Siren}}: Blood Curse''. And lord help you if you have Bella and she's [[spoiler: in her Maggot Shibito form]]. "BELLAAAAA!! MY BABYYY!!!"
* [[VideoGame/SoulSeries The Alexandra sisters, Sophitia and Cassandra]]. 'Nuff said. Not only eldest sister Sophitia is the very embodiment of MamaBear, but younger sister Cassandra is one despite still not having carried a child -- she entered the fight hoping to fill the role [[GiveHimANormalLife so Sophie would have a chance to live normally]] and not fight anymore.
** Sadly, this gets turned into a weapon ''against'' Sophie later on in the series. In ''Soulcalibur III'', [[TheDragon Tira]] marks Sophitia's children Pyrrha and Patroklos as possible hosts for [[EvilWeapon Soul Edge]]. She then makes good on her promise by kidnapping Pyrrha in ''IV'', [[TrappedInVillainy strong-arming Sophitia into working for Nightmare lest she want to endanger her firstborn]]. If that wasn't enough, backstory materials for ''SCV'' somberly reveal that [[spoiler:Sophitia ended up sacrificing herself by removing the Soul Edge shard embedded near her heart (from when she shattered the lesser of the Soul Edge swords wielded by Cervantes all the way back in ''Soul Edge'') to save the life of Pyrrha]].
* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2''. If you're a child hopelessly lost in a zombie- and monster-infested setting, all you need to do is find a safe spot to hide and hope that Claire Redfield is in the area.
* ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' is this to a little girl named Cereza. [[spoiler:This causes a StableTimeLoop, as Cereza is actually Bayonetta as a child, and Bayonetta became what she was by presumably imitating her "mother"]].
* Alma from ''VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon''. At the end of the first game, TheReveal shows that her actions were all because of what was done to her... including them taking her two children away. It also turns out these two children are [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather the Point Man (the main protagonist) and Paxton Fettel (the main antagonist)]].]]
* Arl Eamon's wife Lady Isolde of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' [[KnightTemplarParent goes to some pretty extreme lengths]] to protect her son Connor. To hide Connor's [[spoiler: magical potential]] she blatantly goes against the laws of the Chantry and [[spoiler: hires Jowan, an apostate Blood Mage, to teach Connor just enough magic to be able to hide his abilities from others]]. This leads to disaster, to put it lightly. Later, after [[spoiler: Connor has been possessed, Isolde lures Bann Teagan to the castle at "Connor"'s request]]. At the end, unless you TakeAThirdOption, Isolde will either [[spoiler: allow herself to be sacrificed in a BloodMagic ritual to save Connor, or ask the Grey Warden to allow her to peacefully kill Connor herself to end his suffering.]]
* A weird, ''weird'' example can be found in the joined games of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames''. [[spoiler:The sister witches Koume and Kotake will do anything for their adopted son Ganondorf. They are the secret BigBad of both games, the goal of which can only be seen when the games are linked up; they want to sacrifice Princess Zelda as part of a ritual to revive Ganondorf, and when Link screws that up for them, they sacrifice ''themselves'' instead.]]
* In ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'', once Brigid Tenenbaum's maternal instinct kicks in, she spends her time rounding up and saving the Little Sisters. Then after she finally escapes Rapture, she ''goes back'' for the sisters that were left in the city.
** In ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' Elizabeth is not happy when children are in danger. [[spoiler: When it is clear that Daisy Fitzroy intends to kill a Jerimiah Fink's son, Elizabeth stabs her in the back with a pair of scissors.]]
* Aqua in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'' is undoubtedly the TeamMom, and slips instantly into this once things go bad.
* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''
** The Mother Deathclaw. Shoot one of her little babies and prepare for '''pain.'''
** Lily, who's more a Grandmama Bear (or Grandmama Yao Guai as it were) who is fiercely protective of the Courier, who she takes as a ReplacementGoldfish for her real grandchildren.
---> '''"DON'T. YOU. TOUCH. MY. BABY!"'''
* Jun Kazama of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}''. Because nothing says love for your son like ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu kicking the ass of the closest thing this series has to]]'' '''''[[{{Satan}} the devil]]''''' as it tries to possess your child [[PregnantBadass while he's still in the womb]] and then [[YouShallNotPass holding off]] (and [[HesJustHiding possibly being murdered by]]) an ancient, inhuman weapon of alien origin for the sake of your aforementioned son fifteen years down the road.
* [[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.]]
** Jack, [[AxCrazy of all people]], becomes this in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''. She's been teaching a class of students at Grissom Academy, and has threatened to rip anyone apart if they hurt her students. As anyone who's played [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 the second game]] can tell you, [[UnstoppableRage she means it]].
* 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.
* ''VideoGame/AngryBirds''. Those pigs really should ''not'' have messed with the eggs.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}},'' one could interpret [[DiscoDan Milla]] in this way--a Badass psychic secret agent who also loves kids, she is ''not'' happy when she's revived from [[spoiler:Oleander]] stealing her, [[GermanicDepressives Sasha]] and their students' brains. This interpretation becomes more clear when you use Clairvoyance on her (she sees her students as babies) and when you find her back story (which reveals [[spoiler:trauma from the OrphanageOfLove she worked at burning to the ground]]).
* 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.
* Mary Barrows (or Burroughs) from ''VideoGame/ClockTower'' is a villainous example: She is the mother of two extremely disturbed children, Bobby and Dan (their conception is heavily implied to be the result of occult work), and is very protective of them, to the extent that she is perfectly willing to kill Jennifer and three other orphans she adopted just to prevent them from killing the boys, and also intended to murder Jennifer in one of the endings specifically because the latter killed Bobby and Dan, but ended up being killed herself.
* Palutena in ''VideoGame/KidIcarusUprising'' shows signs of being one toward Pit, especially in later chapters of the game. [[spoiler:By the end of Chapter 21, when Pit saves Dark Pit from Chaos Kin, his wings are burned as a result. Palutena is in a state of shock over [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone what's happened]], given that Pit might die. What does she do? Have Dark Pit go to the spring of time and dip Pit's wings into the water and bring him back to life. In Viridi's own words, Palutena is willing to go down into the Underworld and ''cheat death'' just to save her precious Captain (who she might see as a son, depending on interpretation).]]
* Never harm a child or a teenager in the vicinity of one [[Franchise/StreetFighter Chun-Li]]. [[VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha She pointed a gun at Bison]] and then [[ActionMom fought him]] for [[spoiler: kidnapping and brainwashing teen girls into his BodyguardBabes]], and [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIII later fought Urien for kidnapping one of the kids she adopted and trained]].
* [[spoiler:Lei-Lei/Hsien-Ko and Ling-Ling/Mei-Ling]]'s ActionMom in the VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}} series, ''several'' times. First, [[spoiler:she died in an HeroicSacrifice to save the girls from Pyron, which [[ParentsInDistress is the reason why]] Hsien-Ko and Mei-Ling turned themselves into a ChineseVampire-inspired magical being and her sealing ward respectively.]] Then, in the second game [[spoiler:as the girls die to revive her, she uses her powers to help them being reincarnated into normal kids]]. And in the third game, [[spoiler:when the reborn twins are forcibly turned back into magical beings and engulfed by the darkness, she ''again'' rescues them and sends them back to their normal lives.]]
* A [[YamatoNadeshiko sliiiiiiightly more subdued]] example is Shizuka Kusanagi from ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'', as explained by the SpinOff continuity ''The King of Fighters: Kyo''. Get into her BigFancyHouse to look for info when neither her husband nor her son are there? She'll calmly [[BladeonAStick point her naginata]] at your neck. Then she'll give you a soft-spoken but piercing TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. And ''then'' [[SacredHospitality she'll make you tea before sending you off.]] [[PolitenessJudo And you'll love it.]]
* [[spoiler:Hanako Ikezawa's [[MissingMom deceased mother]]]] in ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo''. [[spoiler:As she and a little Hanako were trapped in the fatal fire that decimated their house, Mrs. Ikezawa chose to cover her daughter with her own body and ''burn herself to death'' rather than letting her die. While Hanako sustained massive [[TwoFaced physical]] and [[BrokenBird mental]] scars, she still got a second chance at life thanks to her mother's HeroicSacrifice.]]
* This ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' comic [[http://www.teamfortress.com/tf03_cold_day_in_hell/ "A Cold Day in Hell"]] features a literal example. After Scout, Soldier, and Pyro kill three bears, the Heavy states that those bears were babies. Scout dismisses his statement, thinking that "everything's a baby to [him]", but the Heavy's words ring true; those bears ''were'' babies of an angered mother bear.
