[[caption-width-right:250:A crafty, cruel, and cunning villain. [[BaitAndSwitchComparison Just like her father]].]]

->''"Rather than simply being an attractive stage prop, make sure that you know every detail of the running of the Evil Empire, so that if anything unpleasant happens to Daddy, the transition of power will go smoothly. Then make sure that something unpleasant happens to Daddy."''
-->-- #14. of the [[JustForFun/TheUniversalGenreSavvyGuide guide]] for the [[http://www.worldconquer.org/evil_overlord.html#Anchor-Tips-23240 "Wicked but Beautiful Daughter"]]'''

She's the daughter/niece/granddaughter/etc of an EvilOverlord, who shares her parent's {{ambition|IsEvil}}, cunning, and/or cruelty. She could be anything from a simple SpoiledBrat to an Overlord in waiting. She's also likely to be a [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess]] (since [[GarnishingTheStory even villainy is improved with that]]), though she will still prefer wearing [[EvilWearsBlack black]] or dark colors over [[PrincessesPreferPink pink]].

Viewers should neither expect her to be TheIngenue nor expect a HeelFaceTurn from her, even if [[VillainessesWantHeroes she falls for the hero]]. That would more be her just wanting him for herself than willingly joining his side; she'll want ''him'' to [[FaceHeelTurn willingly join]] ''her'' side (and his refusal is likely to inspire WomanScorned, however little reason she had to believe that he might accept).

She is more likely to be a DarkActionGirl than a DarkMagicalGirl because the latter has a high chance of becoming good after her MagicalGirl counterpart [[DefeatMeansFriendship defeats her in combat]] or otherwise convinces her to switch sides with ThePowerOfFriendship. On the other hand, she is prone to RevengeByProxy subjected by an AntiHero in a darker setting.

She might [[EnemyMine team up with the heroes]], but only for the same reason any other [[TheDragon dragon]] would team up with them. [[StatusQuoIsGod Then it's enemies again.]]

If she's above a certain age, [[EvilIsSexy she is going to be hot]], often [[EvilIsCool a cooler character than the female lead]], and [[SensibleHeroesSkimpyVillains might wear less]]. If the bad guys are the YellowPeril or otherwise "Asian-themed", expect her to be a DragonLady.

If her father is defeated, [[AvengingTheVillain she will be the one doing the avenging.]] On the other hand, she might get impatient waiting for Mommy and Daddy to die so she can take their place. In this case, she might decide to become a SelfMadeOrphan and TheUsurper all at once. In the meantime, mom and/or dad may give her a first rate education by sending her to the AcademyOfEvil. If it turns out her EvilParentsWantGoodKids, expect a disappointment. To correct this [[InTheBlood acquired morality]] they may send her to a SuperheroSchool.

A (literal) SisterTrope to OverlordJr (the [[DistaffCounterpart Spear Counterpart]] to this).

Compare MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter (who may or may not be evil), TheEvilPrince, ProtectedByAChild, DarkMistress, and EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas.

Contrast PrincessClassic, DefectingForLove, EvilParentsWantGoodKids, MafiaPrincess (Unless, of course, she's being groomed to take over the family business.)



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/EurekaSeven'''s Anemone is very much this trope towards her commander [[BigBad Dewey Novak]], with a dash of {{Yandere}} thrown in for good measure. Unlike most, she [[spoiler: does make a HeelFaceTurn in the end, after she realizes just HOW depraved Dewey is, how he admitted to her that she's another expendable pawn in his grand scheme after going through the entire series treating her with extra special attention and "Love", and [[LoveRedeems Dominic's love for her changes her for the better]].]]
* Inverted in ''Anime/{{Dangaioh}}''. [[spoiler: Pai Thunder, the Big Girl from the FiveManBand, was the daughter of BigBad Garimoth and had a FaceHeelTurn once she recovered her memories. But when Garimoth told her to kill her teammate Roll before taking her back, Pai rebelled and rejoined the group.]]
* She's not his daughter, but [[BigBad the Millennium Earl]] and [[LittleMissBadass Road Kamelot]] of ''Manga/DGrayMan'' behave like this.
** She also behaves like this with her real father. But it's really odd since [[spoiler: she's older than he is...]]
* Rue from ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' is a normal ballet student until she becomes [[spoiler:her alterego, Princess Kraehe. Later it's revealed that the BigBad Raven kidnapped her as a baby. Meaning he'd lied to her about her being HIS daughter.]] The Raven is definitely ''not'' going to win the "father of the year" award.
* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'': We're not entirely sure if [[spoiler:Amata Kihara]] is [[spoiler:Telestina Lifeline's father]] or if Gensei Kihara had another son, but they're both him and [[spoiler:Telestina]] really fits this trope well. [[EvilLaugh Really, really well]].
* Mariemaia Barton from the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing'' OVA. She is (allegedly) the illegitimate daughter of Treize Kushrenada and a nurse. She tries to [[WorldDomination take over the world]] [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior at the age of eight]], "the way her father would have wanted."[[spoiler: Some evidence, however, suggests that she is not Treize's daughter at all, but just a random girl found and groomed by [[BigBad Dekim]] to assume the role.]]
** Treize's daughter or not, the ultimate irony is that Kushrenada was more of a WellIntentionedExtremist who ultimately believed in peace, while Mariemaia knowingly tried to start another war just after a rather devastating one had finally wrapped up.
* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'': She's far from childish or spoiled, but Princess Kycilia Zabi still fits the trope, sharing her father Degwin's philosophy and remaining loyal to him [[spoiler: even after his death.]]
* Subverted in ''Manga/FlameOfRecca'': Renge thinks she's this to the BigBad, but in actuality, [[spoiler: he kept her around just so he could devour her to be immune to Kurei and Recca's flames.]]
* [[spoiler: Mathilda Toulonchamp]] from ''Manga/HonooNoAlpenRose'', willing accomplice to her ManipulativeBastard father [[spoiler: in his BatmanGambit to manipulate Jeudi's maternal family]]. [[spoiler: Averted by her older sister Madeleine, though. And later, Mathilda herself starts backing off, since she realizes she's in ''deep shit'' after their accomplice fails to kill Jeudi and such a situation scares the crap out of her.]]
* In ''Anime/MaiHiME'', Alyssa's most important person, even more than her robotic bodyguard and companion Miyu, is her "father," the Searrs president.
* [[DarkMagicalGirl Fate Testarossa]] is the daughter of [[MadScientist Pre]][[HotScientist cia]]/[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Presea]], the BigBad from ''{{Anime/Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha}}'s'' first season. While Fate did everything to make her mother happy, including trying to gather the [[MacGuffin 21 Jewel Seeds]], Precia just yelled at her and punished her with [[ATasteOfTheLash whip slaps]] or with ElectricTorture. The reason why Precia treats her like that was that [[spoiler:Fate was actually a failed [[CloningBlues clone]] and ReplacementGoldfish of her late and real daughter Alicia.]] For Precia, Fate was just a tool to accomplish her goal: [[spoiler:going to Al Hazard and finding a method to revive Alicia]].
** The [[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS third season's]] BigBad [[MadScientist Jail Scaglietti]] has ''twelve'' "daughters". All of them are [[{{Cyborg}} Combat Cyborgs]] created by him, and all of them treats him as their father, even the ones who have underwent a HeelFaceTurn. Eight of them qualify as [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughters]], since seven of them made a HeelFaceTurn in the end, while the eighth stays with one of the true four Daddy's Little Villains.
** [[spoiler:Runessa Magnus]] from ''Audioplay/StrikersSoundStageX'' is this to Tredia Graze. In fact, [[spoiler:''she'' is the BigBad while Tredia is the GreaterScopeVillain]] and carries all of his motivations.
* ''Anime/DokiDokiPrettyCure'' has a very complicated example in Regina, the daughter of King Jikochuu. On one hand, the villains, herself included, are powered by selfishness (it's kinda in the name; "Jikochuu" (''selfish'') isn't just his name but the whole monster race) and have it as their foremost trait, and the king can force this part of her to become dominant. On the other hand, Regina learned to love as she was befriended and taught about humanity by the heroes. On the ''other'' other hand, her father is who she loves most of all. This keeps her very conflicted and going through the HeelFaceRevolvingDoor. There's one point with the heroes trying to awaken her good side and seeming to succeed, and she goes from her [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience evil colors to her good colors]] and ''keeps on attacking,'' going from doing it ForTheEvulz to doing it for her father.
* A very recent reveal in ''Manga/OnePiece'' firmly sets [[spoiler: Charlotte Pudding]] as this for [[spoiler: her mother, Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin]]. The girl claims to be her horrible [[spoiler: mom]]'s favorite child and is just as terrible, [[spoiler: only able to hide it MUCH better, [[BitchInSheepsClothing making herself look sweet and gentle]] until it's time to attack.]] It turns out there's a huge reason for it: [[spoiler: Pudding possesses a ThirdEye, which according to Big Mom, should help her read the Poneglyphs' content without understanding the language, like how Roger used his mysterious ability of "hearing the voices of all things" to read Poneglyphs. Plus [[AbusiveParents she psychologically abused Pudding]] [[HarmfulToMinors ever since she was a little kid]], by endlessly mocking her ThirdEye and how it looked.]]
* One of the stories adapted in ''Anime/GrimmsFairyTaleClassics'' is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donkey_Cabbages "The Magic Heart"/"Donkey Cabbages"]], where a WickedWitch is aided in her plans against the huntsman Frederick by her beautiful daughter, Lisbeth. [[spoiler: [[TheDogBitesBack It fails. Epically]].]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Sin, the ComicBook/RedSkull's completely AxCrazy daughter. [[UglyGuysHotDaughter She was a looker]] until [[spoiler: in the final issue ''Captain America: Reborn'' where she gets an extreme makeover courtesy of an exploding mecha. She truly was [[ButterFace her father's daughter]] at least untill Kobix repairs her face]].
* In the comic book series ''ComicBook/{{Empire}}'', Golgoth, supreme villainous overlord of the world, has only one joy in life: his sweet, innocent daughter. Only [[spoiler: she's not as innocent as he thinks, as she's been sleeping with one of his lieutenants and eventually convinces him to betray her dad for her. Then it turns out she had been manipulating the guy all along, intentionally setting him up to be caught and executed just for her own amusement, and the whole thing was just a way of expressing her disturbing obsessive feelings toward her father.]]
** Even worse, [[spoiler: she poisoned her own mother and made it look like a suicide because she felt she was making Golgoth soft.]]
* [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] has a good example of the difference between this and MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter. Marvel's archenemy Sivana has four kids. Two of them are [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter beautiful and good, siding with Captain Marvel.]] While his other two children are ugly and evil like him. Though in some appearances, his beautiful children where bad as well.
* ''ComicBook/{{Planetary}}:'' Flashbacks explains how Doc Brass fought mysterious [[LawyerFriendlyCameo Fu Manchu-like Hark]] and eventually convinced him to join the side of the good guys. Hark's daughter Anna, however, had been raised as a villain, survived her father and became a thorn in the heroes's side.
* ''ItTakesAWizard'': [[spoiler: The [[DamselInDistress little girl]] the CorruptCorporateExecutive valued so much that he busted the hero out of his impending death sentence so he could rescue her? Not only did she join the BigBad in the [[BigAppleSauce wasteland of Manhattan]], her father supported her decision to do so. Sending the hero on this mission was all part of a grand EvilPlan -- to [[GaiasVengeance avenge Gaia]] by [[ImAHumanitarian dethroning humanity from its place at the top of the food chain]].]]
* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' [[spoiler: Superman's sister-in-law Lucy Lane]] has become [[spoiler: Superwoman, a supervillain]], because she believes [[spoiler: dear old dad, [[GeneralRipper General Sam Lane]]'s idea that Superman and the other Kryptonians are a threat to national security.]]
* Alexandria von Fogg from ''Comicbook/{{PS 238}}''.
* ComicBook/{{Magneto}}'s daughter the ComicBook/ScarletWitch was an inverted example; she was originally a villain and one of the original Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, as was his son ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}. But their hearts weren't in it, and they eventually turned against him. They had been Avengers for ''quite'' some time before realizing who their father is.
* Winnowill from ''Comicbook/ElfQuest'' was vaguely {{retcon}}ned to be Haken's daughter, though the hinting started pretty early on in the series. She really takes after him... and once she starts living inside Rayek's mind, she flesh-shapes his body to look exactly like her father's.
* Comicbook/XMen villain Mastermind had two daughters with [[MasterOfIllusion similar powers]] who have been villainesses. The younger one, Regan, even briefly joined the X-Men under the guise of a HeelFaceTurn before showing her [[BeneathTheMask true colors]].
* Ana Kravinoff, the daughter of [[Franchise/SpiderMan Kraven the Hunter]], has followed in her father's footsteps despite only being [[LittleMissBadass 12]].
* In ''ComicBook/AllStarSuperman'', ComicBook/LexLuthor has a niece, [[PerkyGoth Nastalthia]], who's eighteen, [[{{Omniglot}} speaks 30 languages]] and wants to conquer the world. She also appeared in UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} Supergirl comics and was nicknamed Nasty.
* Sybil Mayhew, daughter of Comicbook/{{Blackhawk}}'s EvilCounterpart Death Mayhew, who follows in her father's footsteps after his death.
* Trigon ''wants'' his daughter ComicBook/{{Raven}} to be this. How well he succeeds is DependingOnTheWriter. Most of the time, she resists... It's when she ''can't'' that her [[ComicBook/TeenTitans teammates]] are screwed. In ComicBook/{{New 52}}, Raven [[AdaptationalVillainy was reintroduced as a villain]] and therefore ''is'' this, willingly.
* Angel Top, the daughter of the infamous hitman Flattop from the ''ComicStrip/DickTracy'' comics.
* ''The ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'' have had to deal with two of these. First is the daughter of The Mist, the arch enemy of the original ''ComicBook/{{Starman}}'', who took her father's place after his death. The second is the appropriately named Junior, daughter of the first [[ComicBook/SecretSix Ragdoll]].
* As pictured above, Talia al Ghul from the Franchise/{{Batman}} comics, daughter of Comicbook/RasAlGhul. She often flip-flops between loyalty to her father and to her "beloved". There's also Talia's sister, Nyssa, who lacked any of Talia's loyalty issues by being emotionally numb (losing everyone you loved and being horrifically tortured/experimented on while interned in a concentration camp can do that sometimes) and trying to [[TheStarscream Starscream]] her dad and become leader of the League of Assassins. Don't feel bad for not having heard of her: [[StatusQuoIsGod the coup didn't last]] and [[DroppedABridgeOnHim neither did she]]. The picture is from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', though [[spoiler: by that point her father [[GrandTheftMe hijacked her body]].]]
* ''Comicbook/TheSuperiorFoesOfSpiderMan'' has somehow managed to combined it with EvilParentsWantGoodKids - Beetle's father [[spoiler: Tombstone]] is proud his daughter wants to be a criminal but doesn't approve of her being a supervillain. He believes [[CutLexLuthorACheck she'll be able to steal much more as a lawyer]].
* In the MC2 future-verse, we get a DistaffCounterpart of Electro ([[BerserkButton don't call her Electra just because she looks like Electro]]; her name is ''[[InsistentTerminology Aftershock]],'' dammit!) who wants to follow in her father's footsteps, but by now, Electro has long since retired and doesn't want his daughter making the mistakes he did when he was her age.
** Subverted with different character named Aftershock, who claims to be Electro's daughter who had inhereit his powers. When confronted about it, Electro pointed out she is around seventeen and [[ComicBookTime he had powers only for thirteen years]]. [[spoiler: Turns out she was brainwashed into believing to be his daughter.]]
* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'': In ''ComicBook/ThargsTerrorTales'', one short strip is about a goth chick who leads a bunch of {{Vampire Vannabe}}s to the CreepyCemetery so her vampire father can eat them. Tharg commends their family values.
* Princess Aura, Ming the Merciless' daughter in the ''ComicStrip/FlashGordon'' comic strip represents this trope very well. She does have a soft spot for Flash Gordon out of attraction to him, and is Prince Barin's lover in some continuities.
* ''ComicBook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh'': Freddy Krueger's daughter Kathryn aka [[spoiler:Maggie Burroughs]] has [[FallenHero fallen to the darkside]] and is now working with her father. Not only that, she's become a daddy's girl in [[ParentalIncest all the wrong ways]]...

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* Princess Lotora from [[http://fanfiction.wikia.com/wiki/Hottie_3:_The_Best_Fan_Fic_in_the_World Hottie 3: The Best Fan Fic in the World]]
* In the ''FanFic/PonyPOVSeries'':
** The [[BadFuture Epilogue timeline]] version of [[AxCrazy Fluttercruel]] is this to [[BigBad Discord]], due to being his creation. Surprisingly, Discord [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes cares about her too]], to the point that he pulls her back from the FinalBattle with [[HeroAntagonist Queen Cadence]] because he's worried she might get hurt. [[spoiler: When she is seemingly killed by Rarity when the heroes [[StormingTheCastle storm the castle]], he slips into a VillainousBSOD, and when ''he'' is mortally wounded, she has a full-blown VillainousBreakdown.]]
** [[spoiler: Discord's little sister Rancor is likewise quite close to their [[EldritchAbomination Father, Havoc]]. Though Havoc was only the 'villain' for the Alicorn/Draconequi War and [[AntiVillain only wanted to protect his family after they were damaged by the destruction of the Windigos.]] Celestia just had an understandably skewed view of him due to that war, and his Avatar went berserk against his will at the end of it. Otherwise, he's actually [[BigGood acting in mortal life's best interests,]] even if it's in a GoodIsNotNice fashion.]]
** [[spoiler: The mainline Discord 'adopts' the now Nightmare Diamond Tiara as his daughter and treats her this way, though her mentality following her transformation makes her not quite return it properly.]]
* Another ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' example is the fanmade song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA9dFZJtQWc "Daddy Discord"]], which [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation interprets]] the background character Screwball as one of these (with a healthy side dose of CreepyChild who [[CreepyChildrenSinging sings]] [[VillainSong evilly]]) in relation to [[GodOfEvil her creator]].
--> '''Cause you... are my daddy Discord... and I... am a piece of you.''
* ''FanFic/JewelOfDarkness'': [[VillainProtagonist Raven/Midnight]] to Slade.
* In ''FanFic/ShadowsAwakening'', this is how Tarakudo views [[EnemyWithin the Queen of the Shadowkhan]] (much to her annoyance).
* In the ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8751000/1/Guardian-of-Light Guardian of Light]]'' Pitch ''wants'' his daughter to be this. She has other ideas.
* One of the weirdest examples of this Trope occurred in Lorelei's backstory in ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersTorment''. Her father was a [[EvilSorcerer Doomdreamer]], a senior member of the [[ReligionOfEvil Cult of Tharizdun]]. When an omen from his god foretold that any disciple he took would betray him, he decided to raise his own offspring as one, summoning a [[HornyDevils succubus]] for the express purpose of carrying his child, and then training his daughter almost since infancy. While Lorelei became an incredibly powerful Doomdreamer in her own right, her father didn't escape the prophecy; ''she'' betrayed him and in one of the worst ways, [[BalefulPolymorph turning him into a cat]] and them keeping him like a pet. Despite this, he had absolutely no regrets - [[SoProudOfYou she turned out just the way he had wanted his daughter too.]] (Of course, Doomdreamers are all ''[[AxeCrazy completely]]'' [[AxeCrazy insane...]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* Princess of ''[[WesternAnimation/AlphaAndOmega Alpha and Omega 2: A Howl-iday Adventure]]'' is a subversion. While Princess is loyal to her father [[BigBad King]] and serves as his [[TheDragon Dragon]], it becomes clear that she's an AntiVillain to his CardCarryingVillain. [[spoiler:Even moreso in the climax when, thanks to [[MoralityPet Runt]] bringing out more of her good side, Princess defies King's final attack order and retreats.]]
* Princess Aura in 1970s ''WesternAnimation/{{Flash Gordon|1979}}'' animated movie, though her attraction towards Flash may affect her judgement.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In the Danish film ''Film/{{Pusher}} 3'', Serb druglord Milo's daughter clearly wears the pants in the family, ordering her flustered father around to prepare for her 25th birthday party. After Milo discovers that her boyfriend is an independent drug dealer and forces him to buy his product for distribution, his daughter finds out and hardballs his price down. What a family!
* Though we don't get to see them in action, Mr. Han from ''Film/EnterTheDragon'' trained his daughters to be his most loyal guard. As Roper says upon finding out how tough they can be, "No one's more loyal than Daddy's little girl."
* ''[[Film/SkyHigh2005 Sky High]]'': Gwen was raised by Stitches to be evil, and she absolutely hates whenever someone, including Stitches himself, points this out. Also a rare instance of the "little villain" rather than the "daddy" being the dominant partner. Although she was already evil to begin with.
* ''Film/{{Yellowbeard}}'': Triola, daughter of the greedy [[GodGuise religious leader]] El Nebuloso.
* In ''Film/BulletproofMonk'', Nina, who pretends to be a human rights activist, is the granddaughter of the BigBad Nazi, who has been chasing the titular monk since UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. She later tries to seduce the monk and has a DesignatedGirlFight with Jade. She's enough of a badass that she has no problem breaking into a mansion owned by a [[TheMafiya Russian mobster]].
* ''Film/DaughterOfTheDragon'' has Fu Manchu's daughter, played by the stunning Anna May Wong.
* ''Film/ConanTheBarbarian2011''. Marique, witch daughter with WolverineClaws of Khalar Zym.
* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''. Bane with Talia Al Ghul [[spoiler: AKA Miranda Tate]] who wants to finish her Dad's EvilPlan because he was killed in [[Film/BatmanBegins the first movie]].
* In ''Film/TheSmurfs2'', Smurfette is played up as this to her "father" Gargamel before her HeelFaceTurn, along with her "sister" Vexy, though to a lesser extent.
* Angela in ''Film/MatchstickMen'', who proves to be just as cunning of a ConMan as her father Roy. [[spoiler:Justified as she is an actress playing a con against him.]]
* ''Film/TheMaskOfFuManchu'': Fah Lo is every bit as evil as her father, and is completely on board with making him the new Khan. See entry under Literature below.
* Ming's daughter Princess Aura in both the classic 30's ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|Serial}}'' serials and the '80s ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|1980}}'' film, albeit in some versions she's not as cruel as her father and may even betray him in order to save Flash, who she (in all versions) lusts after him.
* Red Skull's daughter in ''Film/CaptainAmerica1990'' has a prominent role as her father's henchwoman, assasin and right hand.
* ''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': Sophia Rikkin cooperates with her father in their quest for the Eden Apple of Granada, although she wants to "cure aggression" rather than TakeOverTheWorld it still boils down to TheEvilsOfFreeWill.

* Fah Lo Suee, the daughter of ''Literature/FuManchu'' embodies the "beautiful but at-least-as-evil-as-he" version of the evil mastermind's daughter.
* Sonia Steiglitz is the beautiful and sadistic KnifeNut daughter of the ex-CIA chief/archaeologist villain of ''The Takers'', a modern {{Two Fisted Tale|s}} by Jerry Ahern.
-->"My mother would drink while my father was out searching for the damned [[MacGuffin Gladstone Log]]. Some nights she'd beat me because she couldn't love him. I'm twenty-six years old. I stopped playing with dolls twenty years ago. I taught myself to hurt things and feel nothing -- all so I could be with him when he searched -- ''be with him!'' It was never my mother -- I don't know if he loved her. It was always finding the Gladstone Log...the power...the power he wanted..."
* [[Literature/TheDresdenFiles Harry Dresden's]] nemesis Nichodemus has a daughter named Deirdre who is as evil and dangerous as him and [[ParentalIncest apparently his lover too]]. The RPG refers to her as ''Daddy's Little Denarian'' in her character sheet.
* Lila Zacharov of ''Literature/TheCurseWorkers'' by Holly Black is the daughter of a manipulative, murdering crime boss, and wants nothing more than to be his heir. However, she's portrayed as more of an [[{{AntiHero}} Anti Heroine]] than a villain.
* In Creator/WilliamShatner's novel ''AshesOfEden'', the BigBad's daughter has been brainwashed by her father into doing everything she can to kill Kirk. Why? Because her mother was killed by Klingons shortly before Kirk helped sign the peace treaty, preventing her father from exacting revenge on them. She opts to die with her father rather than let Kirk [[SaveTheVillain save her]].
* Vestara Khai from ''Literature/FateOfTheJedi'' comes from a whole society of [[EvilSorcerer Sith]], and both she and her father Gavar are major villains. [[spoiler: Though for now, at least, she's in an EnemyMine with Luke Skywalker and his son Ben against an EldritchAbomination which is manipulating her people- and while Ves herself would be horrified at the idea, many fans hoped she'd make a genuine HeelFaceTurn before everything was over]]. Indeed, in ''Vortex'',[[spoiler: she saves Luke and Ben from the Sith. ''Twice''.]] Also, this trope takes an interesting turn when [[spoiler: Vestara killed Lord Taalon, who was "too far above her station", thus making her own father (and lots of other Sith) want to kill her.]] Afterwards, she decides to stick around and help Luke and Ben.
* Devereaux D'Orsay in (the last book of) Cinda Williams Chima's ''Literature/TheHeirChronicles'' is male, but he's still the spoiled, bratty, and thoroughly villainous (though handsome) child of one of the main villains.
* ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''
** Petyr Baelish is trying to get Alayne Stone/[[spoiler:Sansa Stark]] to play this role, although there is much speculation as to where this will lead.
** Cersei wanted to be this to Tywin Lannister, but winds up as a [[RareFemaleExample rare female]] WellDoneSonGuy instead, because Tywin would rather she adopt a more traditional female role as wife and mother to a king.
** Asha Greyjoy appears to be this while her father is alive, but after his death proves to have a much different and more sensible agenda.
* Phaidor, daughter of the Thern (White Martian) [[HighPriest Priest King]] from the second and third ''Literature/JohnCarterOfMars'' novels. Her dad is the head of a planet-spanning PathOfInspiration which manipulates the other Martian races into being slaves and/or [[ImAHumanitarian food]] for their people, and she's not only completely cool with it, she finds the idea of any other way of life unthinkable, and while [[VillainessesWantHeroes she's attracted to Carter]], it's mostly because he's badass and she's [[EvilCannotComprehendGood utterly dumbfounded]] by why he does the things he does. [[spoiler:Then she gets a dose of BreakTheHaughty when she finds out that ''another'' Martian race, the First Born, are using the Therns the same way the Therns use everyone else, followed shortly by Carter exposing the whole thing and toppling it. ''Then'' her dad gets offed by the First Born warlord he'd been in a very tense VillainTeamUp with, and she [[AvengingTheVillain avenges]] him before comitting suicide, though [[RedemptionEqualsDeath she does express repentence in her last moments]].]]
* Belinda Contague in Glen Cook's ''Literature/GarrettPI'' series.
* Angela Paco from ''Literature/TheVampireFiles''.
* ''Literature/LegacyOfTheDragokin'': [[spoiler: Inverted as Kthonia is not at all evil and her daughter Sali-Ka is the BigBad. Avenging The Villain kicks in when her daughter is killed.]]
* In ''Literature/OutlanderLeander'', Signe the Scraper is this. After her mother dies she fights to take over her crime ring despite being underage. She's involved in kidnapping, slavery and murder, and goes as far as to plan the assassination of one of the country's leaders.
* Although not related by blood, DimeNovel villain Zanoni the Woman Wizard was the ward of Dr Jack Quartz, the ArchEnemy of Literature/NickCarter.
* Opal Koboi in ''Literature/ArtemisFowl''.
* In ''Literature/VampireAcademy'', [[spoiler:Natalie will do anything her father Victor Dashkov tells her to do. Even drastic things, like turning Strigoi to help him get out of prison. She is his chief agent in his campaign against Lissa]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Despite not really being his daughter, Faith winds up very much playing this role to The Mayor in the third season -- she's his loyal [[TheDragon Dragon]], of whom he is clearly protective. Her loyalty is based on him being the first (and possibly ''only'') person who ever valued her just for being her (not using her or trying to change her). When he tells her that even if Buffy did a FaceHeelTurn, he'd still pick Faith over her, it's a weird but touchingly sincere moment that clearly means the world to her. Buffy sending her into a coma led to [[AffablyEvil his one swear word]] and Buffy taunting him about said loss led to his defeat. Many scenes between Faith and the Mayor involved him acting very fatherly and tender, giving her gifts and general life advice (about respecting and valuing herself) alongside assassination missions. Nice little call back in both Season Seven and the Season Eight comics, showing that Faith remembers him fondly despite her HeelFaceTurn.
** Darla is this, if you remember that The Master is her sire.
** Drusilla is almost as evil as her beloved "Daddy." The two seem to have a lot in common, killing and making plans together, and in "Crush," Dru even shows Angelus' affinity for torture, while Spike prefers quick kills. Angelus even tells her "no one knows me like you do." Her betrayal of Spike for Angelus the moment he returns probably seals the deal. Of course, Dru and Angelus have been sleeping together since before Spike was born, but that's how vampire families seem to work.
* ''Series/ForeverKnight'': [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. [=LaCroix=]'s daughter Divia became a vampire first and is the reason for him becoming one too, not the other way around. She's also far more amoral and embracing of her monstrous nature than even her machiavellian father, which led him to [[SealedEvilInACan seal her away]] for two thousand years.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** The show has a scene where [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Cersei]] is showing Crown Prince [[RoyalBrat Joffrey]] how to be Mummy's little villain. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, he takes her advice re: "you are king and can do whatever you want" very much to heart, while ignoring her lessons on prudent policy and government]]. Cersei herself seems to be trying to be this to her father Tywin, but unfortunately thanks to being a) a woman and b) not nearly as clever as she thinks she is, she doesn't get the appreciation she thinks she deserves.
** Yara Greyjoy is a straight example when she is eager to participate in her father's plan to attack the North, though she disobeys her father when she gets word of [[spoiler:Theon's imprisonment by Ramsay Snow]] and sets out to take care of it herself.
%%* Elle from ''Series/{{Heroes}}''.
* Alexandra Udinov was nearly an example in ''Series/{{Nikita}}''. She adored her Russian oligarch father and swore revenge against Division when they killed him. This trope is subverted when she realizes just how evil he was and that she was being groomed to take over him company. Though she still avenges his death, she gives away the company and continues helping Nikita against Division.
* ''Franchise/PowerRangers''
** Astronema from ''Series/PowerRangersInSpace'' toward Ecliptor.
** Trakeena from ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy''.
** Nadira from ''Series/PowerRangersTimeForce'' (though she has a HeelRealization by the end).
** *cough* [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Rita Repulsa during Master Vile's campaign]] *cough*
%%* [[spoiler: Mr. Yang]] from ''Series/{{Psych}}.''
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The Conscience of the King," the daughter of a former villain in hiding uses their cover as a performing theater troupe to kill off the remaining witnesses to her father's previous crimes as a way of "protecting" him from recrimination. Her father is extremely displeased with her when he finds out, having hoped to start a legitimate new life in their cover identities, and appalled that the blood on his hands had irreversibly stained her as well.
* ''Series/YoungDracula'' has Ingrid, the elder sister of the title character, who at least in the earlier seasons would ''love'' to be this. Unfortunately for her, her father is utterly sexist, and so [[TheUnfavourite despises and ignores her]] in favour of her WhiteSheep brother.
* One {{CSINY}} episode, featured the VictimOfTheWeek, a young woman in her early-twenties, the daughter of an infamous deceased ConMan who taught her everything he knew about grifting. What got her killed was her trying to the tell [[TheMark her boyfriend]] about a large score she could make from scamming two guys who themselves were trying to pull off a scam. She tells the boyfriend that the deal went wrong, and convinced him to empty his bank account, loan a large amount from his brother, and sell anything of value to pay them off. After months of not seeing her, he recognized her in the old man costume, and when she tried to fight him off, he killed her and fled the scene.
* ''Series/ElChapulinColorado'' in the WildWest settings has Rosa la Rumorosa (Rosa "the many rumors one") daughter and accomplice of feared gunslinger villain Matonsísimo Kid (the "Kills a lot" Kid).

* There is a Jewish folktale about a merchant's son who fell in love with the daughter of the Demon-king Ashmodeus and while she aided him against her father, found that her spouse had a roving eye, and like Medea she killed his entire human family.

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Lady Apache and her daughter Fabi tend to compete as {{tecnico}}s, while Lady's husband Gran Apache often works with the {{rudo}}s, especially in Wresling/{{AAA}}, and their other daughter Mari tends to work with him against [[AntagonisticOffspring her mom]] and [[CainAndAbel sister]]. [[DownplayedTrope That said]], Gran and Mari more often [[HeelFaceTurn choose to switch to tecnico]] to appease the other Apaches.
* Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon, daughter of billionaire BadBoss Wrestling/VinceMcMahon, definitely qualifies.
* Wrestling/{{Charlotte}} is daughter of the dirtiest player in the game, Wrestling/RicFlair. She especially shows this after she TookALevelInJerkass.
* After Act Yasukawa relinquished control of Oedo~tai back to Kyoko Kimura, Kyoko's then rookie daughter joined her mother's efforts to knock over the STARDOM promotion, helping Kyoko and Kagetsu take the Artist Of STARDOM from the [[VillainousUnderdog seemingly unstoppable]] babyface [[RivalsTeamUp alliance]] holding them. Hana technically counts as daddy's little villain in a literal sense too, as dad Isao Kobayashi is also a pro wrestler, but due to the relative rarity of mixed gender cards in Japan she doesn't team up with him nearly as often as mom.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has two prominent examples, both archdevils from the Nine Hells of Baator.
** Glasya is nothing less than the daughter of Asmodeus, Overlord of Hell. She went through a long rebellious phase, but then the two of them reached an accord and Glasya was given the sixth hell of Malbolge to rule over - her first act was to do some remodeling using the Hag Countess, the layer's previous ruler, [[BloodyBowelsOfHell as a building material.]] This act sent shockwaves through Hellish politics, reminding the other archdukes that Asmodeus could replace any of them at any time, particularly unnerving Levistus, the duke who murdered Glasya's mother, and Mammon, her on-again off-again paramour. As for Glasya herself, she's too busy these days to seduce paladins and other righteous mortals herself, but still enjoys promising a victim carnal delights beyond imagination only to instead rot the flesh from their bones with a horrible contagion.
** Lady Fierna is the nominal ruler of Phlegethos, though for most of her reign her dear father Belial wielded most of the power while Fierna enjoyed herself ([[VillainousIncest often with him]]). But she's recently become best friends with Glasya and is taking a much more active role in governing, even setting up her own cultist and intelligence networks [[TheStarscream "just in case"]] of her father's sudden demise. Belial is smart enough to be very, very worried.

* OlderThanFeudalism: Theatre/{{Medea}} of Euripides' tragedy is an excellent illustration of what this character type is like when they are in love with the hero, and how just ''dangerous'' said characters are if you betray them. After Hera made her [[MadLove fall madly in love]] with Jason, in order to aid him she betrayed her father, cut her brother into several pieces to distract her father so Jason had more time to escape, and tricked Jason's cousins into murdering their father -- Jason's usurping uncle. Jason promised to marry her, but when he [[TooDumbToLive changed his mind]] and abandoned the [[DarkMagicalGirl very powerful witch on an island]] to go marry someone else, she not only murdered her own children by Jason but had her revenge by magically incinerating Jason's wife. She's also a major KarmaHoudini, since her fate was to become a goddess and get paired with some handsome hero in the Elysian Fields. Although it makes some sense as she was part-divine, and from her actions she was clearly [[JerkassGods following in the footsteps of the rest of that pantheon]], and Jason himself was the one to blame for most of it.
* ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild''
** [[spoiler:Delphi]] in ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'' is the daughter of Voldemort and Bellatrix Lestrange, eagerly following her father's steps.
** Augurey, a powerful Death Eater who's parents supported Voldemort during [[Literature/HarryPotter the first Wizarding War]]. The two Death Eaters never met their child, but the Augurey still feels an incredible closeness to them and seeks to destroy the Potters in their honor. The Augurey's status as an orphan also creates a NotSoDifferent scenario for Harry Potter, who fights for good because his deceased parents did.

[[folder:Theme Parks]]
* Cindy Caine from [[Theatre/HalloweenHorrorNights Universal's Halloween Horror Nights]] is the demented and equally murder-happy daughter of The Caretaker, who serves as one of the event's main icons.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Tabitha/Larissa from ''[[VideoGame/NintendoWars Advance Wars: Days of Ruin]]'', who is Caulder's/Stolos' [[TheDragon Dragon]]. She's also the most loyal to him (though not slavishly so; for some reason they seem to have a relatively normal father-daughter relationship).
* Nina Cortex, the niece of Dr. Neo Cortex [[spoiler:(although it has been speculated that she may be his daughter)]] in the ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'' series.
* Wendy O. Koopa from the ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' games, though WordOfGod says in modern games she's not ''directly'' related to Bowser. One of the Nintendo Adventure gamebooks centers around [[spoiler:Wendy trying to be TheUsurper by stealing her brothers' magic wands and combining them with her own to create a super-powered wand. She plans to use the wand to [[TheStarscream overthrow Bowser and rule the Koopas in his stead.]]]]
* Vanessa VanCleef from ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''. Daughter of the head of the Defias gang Edwin VanCleef, Vanessa watched her father be killed by the heroes of the Alliance. In Cataclysm, she was hell-bent on revenge, and the entire Westfall questline revolves around her desire for vengeance.
* You'd think ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesMyLifeAsADarklord'' would feature this... but it doesn't, exactly. The current Darklord is all EvilOverlord, but according to the intro [[spoiler: and the previous game, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyCrystalChroniclesMyLifeAsAKing'']], her father was an AntiVillain who just wanted to protect monsters and provide them a place to live in peace.. but was more than willing to kill those who stood in the way of this goal. So... she doesn't take after her father in that she's ''more unambiguously evil and less sympathetic than him.''
* Elenor Lamb in the bad ending of ''VideoGame/BioShock2''.
* ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaPortraitOfRuin'' plays with this: while Stella and Loretta aim to take down the heroes, they do it independently of [[OverprotectiveDad Brauner]], who insists they stay out of harm's way. [[spoiler:They're also not his daughters, having been {{brainwashed|AndCrazy}} to believe that Brauner is their father.]]
* The ''VideoGame/DragonFable'' villain Sepulchure (one of the more serious bad guys in the normally lighthearted game) is revealed to have a daughter during on the Elemental Orb storylines. You may think of her as an innocent baby, but that's only unless you haven't played ''VideoGame/AdventureQuestWorlds'', AE's MMO, which shows her already a grown woman (or teenager, it's hard to tell) and takes over as the leader of the Evil faction in the game. The two even wear the [[http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://images.wikia.com/dragonfable/images/5/5d/Sepulchure.png&imgrefurl=http://dragonfable.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Villains_in_DragonFable&usg=__Y0QgzFrN3h2KSPbPlSCAYLI1cb4=&h=451&w=749&sz=90&hl=en&start=9&sig2=8-93ZtWW654aCZCZQonakw&zoom=1&tbnid=GMt6sBN2rjTeOM:&tbnh=85&tbnw=141&ei=4C-8TYafLYa6sQOGz7WIBg&prev=/search%3Fq%3DSepulchure%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Doff%26rlz%3D1C1VEAD_enUS407US407%26biw%3D1366%26bih%3D667%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1 same]] [[http://aqworldswiki.dfwiki.com/images/d/d8/Gravelyn_Painting.png Doomknight]] armor.
* Puchi Oguras #1 and #5 from ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendaryStarfy Densetsu No Stafy 2]]''.
* In ''VideoGame/MysteryCaseFiles: 13th Skull'', the actual villain of the story has a [[CreepyChild disturbing little girl]] who is [[spoiler:fully aware of and ''involved in'' their plan to use and then kill the protagonist]].
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'': Yunalesca being one of these to her father Yu Yevon is one of the reasons Spira is such a CrapsackWorld. [[spoiler:Apparently she ''could'' have designed the Final Aeon to be able to permanently destroy Sin and Yu Yevon, but she just couldn't bring herself to kill what was left of her father and Zanarkand. Cue 1000 years of suffering.]]
* Mai Hem, Zhang Li's daughter in ''VideoGame/PerfectDark Zero''.
* {{Disgaea 2}}: Rosalyn ''believes'' herself to be one of these, [[spoiler:but in reality she's the reincarnation of Lord Zenon, not his (or possibly her) daughter]]
* ''VideoGame/SaintsRowGatOutOfHell'': {{Satan}} has a daughter, Jezebel, who he's decided to marry off to the most powerful being in the universe, The Boss.
* She's only his daughter in name, but Mileena has this relationship with Shao Kahn in the ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' games, especially in the altered timeline, where she becomes a twisted and evil sort of DaddysGirl. Unfortunately, despite proving herself in her "father's" eyes, and becoming empress of the Outworld after his death, she becomes a poor one; in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' she is almost universally hated, both by Earthrealm and Outworld natives alike.
* Olivia Mann to her father Gray in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. She's completely willing to help her father take over Mann Co. and its [[AppliedPhlebotinum Australium]] reserves, even if she's still in elementary school.
* The animatronic known as Baby [[spoiler:or rather, Elizabeth Afton]] to her father [[spoiler:William Afton AKA [[VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys3 Springtrap]]]] in ''[[VideoGame/FreddyFazbearsPizzeriaSimulator Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator]]''. She is perfectly willing to kill you alongside her father and is fully capable of doing it.


* ''Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfWiglafAndMordred'' has one so interested in following in her father's footsteps as a henchman that she gets her new [[OurZombiesAreDifferent partner]] out of trouble with her dad by turning her dad on the [[ChronicHeroSyndrome hero]]. Hagen explains in the face of her new [[SignedUpForTheDental partner's]] incredulity with "[[http://liliy.net/wam/archive/what-did-you-expect/ What did you expect? I'm a henchman too, ya know.]]"
* Lucrezia Mongfish from ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' is equal parts this and MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter. Whether she ever did a HeelFaceTurn or not remains a matter of debate, even though she's sort of dead... and sort of not.

* Maybe half the girls in the Bad Seeds, the club at [[SuperheroSchool Whateley Academy]] in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse for children of supervillains. Jobe is the child of Gizmatic, and as such is now the heir apparent and princess of Karedonia.
* JustForFun/TheUniversalGenreSavvyGuide list for [[http://www.worldconquer.org/evil_overlord.html henchmen of]] the EvilOverlord, includes a section for the [[http://www.worldconquer.org/evil_overlord.html#Anchor-Tips-23240 "Wicked but Beautiful Daughter"]]. It includes tips such as:
** Learning about TheReveal relating to your father before any heroes can spring it on you.
** Avoid futile attempts to MurderTheHypotenuse to try and [[VillainessesWantHeroes be the hero's love]].
** How to deal with HighCollarOfDoom outfits.
* Chaotrix, from ''WebVideo/SuperAcademy'', is utterly obedient to her father and completely blind to that fact.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* [[TheDragon Princess Azula]] in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' gets much more screen time than her similarly-evil progenitor. She also serves as a foil to her brother, [[AntiVillain Zuko]], succeeding repeatedly where he fails [[spoiler: and eventually failing spectacularly, miserably, where he succeeds]].
* In SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'':
** [[spoiler:[[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter Asami Sato]]]] defies the trope. [[spoiler:When her father [[WeCanRuleTogether offered her]] a [[StaticStunGun shock glove]], she took it...and [[CombatPragmatist used it on him]].]]
** Played straighter with [[spoiler:Princess Eska]], and subverted with [[spoiler:her brother [[DudeLooksLikeALady Desna]], who is a sort of RareMaleExample]]. Eventually, though, their father [[spoiler:goes too far, past the point where they must draw the line]].
* Rava from ''WesternAnimation/GaltarAndTheGoldenLance'' is even more full of scheming and betrayal than [[BigBad her uncle Tormak]].
* Kitten, the daughter of Killer Moth in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. She steals her father's technology purely to create mayhem and get Robin's attention, and when her boyfriend Fang dumps her she latches on to Robin purely as a trophy boyfriend to make Fang jealous. She unleashes a horde of man eating moths on the city. [[spoiler: Her EvilPlan is a partial success; Fang does come back to her and profess his love, but they both end up in jail at the end.]]
* Shreeky from the ''Franchise/CareBears'' series is a different type. She is spoiled and bratty. As a villain, she and Beastly act like a TerribleTrio (with No Heart being the leader).
* From ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'', Princess Urmaplotz is a parody of the concept, as well as the PrincessClassic.
* Cerina in ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce''.
* Goldie, Goldfinger's daughter in ''WesternAnimation/JamesBondJr''
* Charmcaster has this sort of relationship with her uncle Hex in ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfJimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', Beautiful Gorgeous, the [[FemmeFatale Femme Fatale]] daughter of Professor Finbar Calamitous, constantly bickers with daddy when they scheme together. Their one mission together involved kidnapping Action Hero (real and TV star) Jet Fusion.
* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'''s resident MadScientist, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, likes to ''think'' that [[MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter his daughter]] Vanessa is this. While she was completely unreceptive to the idea at first, later episodes seem to hint that [[CharacterDevelopment she might be heading in that direction after all]], even if she still denies it.
* Played completely straight with Creeping Ivy, daughter of Thorn, in ''Herself The Elf''. She also shares her father's [[HarmlessVillain competency]] and [[ForTheEvulz motivation]], to the delight of the protagonists. The extremes to which she takes after her father in personality are surprising when one considers that she is also [[UglyGuysHotDaughter The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter]].
* ''WesternAnimation/CodeNameKidsNextDoor''
** [[FieryRedhead Numbuh 86]] is not this. She's [[StrawFeminist extremely unpleasant]], is feared by everyone, and is the daughter of Mr. Boss...who happens to be the bad guys' leader. However, she herself is one of the good guys' leaders. This doesn't stop her from getting along with her Dad, though.
** [[CreepyChild The female Delightful Children]] could count as an adopted variation of this trope.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfSuperMarioBros3'' amps up this tendency in Bowser's daughter Wendy O. Koopa, as mentioned in the Video Games folder. Bowser lets all of his kids wreak havoc in the episodes where they appear, but is particularly adoring of his only daughter.
* Princess Morbucks on ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls.'' Her daddy virtually finances all her schemes. (Although, he himself has never been known to do anything evil other than that.)
* Demona from ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' would like to turn her daughter Angela into this. It's not happening.
* Star Nightingale, one of the fellow cheerleaders of the titular trio of superheroines in ''WesternAnimation/GrooveSquad'', also happens to be the daughter of Dr. Nefarious Nightingale, the film's main villain--Star also combines this trope with EvilRedhead (Star has red hair while her dad has black hair), MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter (since her dad's a MadScientist bent on world domination) and UglyGuysHotDaughter (just look at the profile pictures for Star and her dad on the character page for ''Characters/GrooveSquad'').
* Even though it's not a biological relation (Programs do not have families in the way humans do), the dynamic between General Tesler and his more sympathetic {{Dragon}} Paige has shades of this in ''WesternAnimation/TronUprising'', with a side order of {{Deconstruction}}. Tesler clearly prefers Paige over Pavel (who isn't very good about disguising the fact [[TheStarscream he'd like to stab Tesler in the back and take charge]]), and acts like a mentor to her. Paige believes Tesler saved her life from an ambush by Isos, and gave her a new function as a soldier when her medical facility was destroyed. [[spoiler: The reality is that Tesler slaughtered his way through the medical center, killing all of Paige's "family" to discredit the Isos. Paige was only spared because Quorra knocked her out, making Paige ''think'' she'd been ambushed. That, and Paige's talent for combat impressed Tesler enough that he found her useful. If she weren't useful to him, he'd de-rez her in a picosecond and not feel a whit of remorse.]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''; [[spoiler: Aku seems thrilled with the idea of having a daughter and a heir once he discovers his dark magic sired Ashi, especially when he is able to control her and use her as a weapon against Jack. Sadly, Ashi does not approve, and is helpless to resist as he controls her like a puppet.]]
* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' Talia Al Ghul (Pictured above) appears to have given up being a villainess and decided to fully accept that she loves Bruce. She offers him eternal youth via constant dips in the Lazarus Pit and declares that his life as a vigilante is overwith. Bruce undergoes the process and much of his youth is restored. He promptly declares that if he stays in the house with Talia and keeps taking dips in the pit he'll be weaker than ever. Talia is unwilling to let him leave and its discovered that she isn't Talia at all but Ras Al Ghul himself. Ras had Talia kill herself so that [[BodySurf what remained of his consciousness could be transferred to her body.]] His real reasoning for inviting Bruce was to transfer his consciousness to a more suitable form and gain all of his millions to top it off. The fact that Talia was willing to die just for her father's plan to work definitely makes her a cross between this and LoveMartyr.

* The EvilOverlordList recommends that if an evil overlord ends up having kids, make them get involved in the family business early and shower them with love. That way when the hero shows up [[XanatosGambit you have a no-win situation for them]]: they either kill the evil overlord in front of his little girl and walk away a lot less morally upstanding, or convince said little girl to come with them (at which point she pulls out her little gun and shoots him in the kneecap).
