Question: Does this apply if one family member disowns another, but they aren't parent and son? I'm thinking in particular of Michael Corleone to his brother Fredo in The Godfather Part II: "You're nothing to me. Not a brother, not a friend."

(That one case might apply regardless under Tropes Are Flexible, since M Ichael is in a paternal role as, well, as the Godfather—but I'm wondering if it applies to family disownings in general.)

I wouldn't have any problems with adding that example, myself.

I'm pretty sure The Simpsons isn't the Trope Namer for this, so is it really right to link to that in the page quote?

It definitely isn't the Trope Namer; removing false pothole.

Question: Do clone examples count for this trope if the clone wasn't the original's choice?
