Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'': At the end of "Put Out to Pasture", Heffer comes out of his Pasture Puffies-induced coma, and all his friends and neighbors are glad he's alive... which quickly turns to them getting angry and leaving in a huff over the scare.


* ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'': If the [[HeroKiller Grustrag Three]] show up in the middle of a mission, [[MissionControl Lotus]] will [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristically freak out]] and order you to abort the mission and ''get out of there''. If you succeed in fighting them off anyways, she'll somewhat reservedly praise your skill, and then tell you to follow orders next time.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted at some point in almost, if not every Creator/DisneyChannel original movie and series made since at least the 2000s where this is supposed to happen, but instead of just being glad the main character is okay, the parent(s), or other authority figures[[note]]FOLLOWED by the parents.[[/note]] either directly or sarcastically, instead preach at / reprimand the main character for (in some cases) not doing what they were told, or otherwise breaking some kind of rule, which often, but may not always end with the main character being told "YourGrounded!", all in order to teach the [[ViewersAreMorons "impressionable"]] viewers the importance of [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop following the rules / obeying the signs / doing what your told no matter what]]. It doesn't help that in some cases, the main character has to keep what they do a secret, and thus literally can't defend themselves.[[note]]In some cases, this trope is not only subverted, but played for laughs as well, where whatever happens is the joke, with the end result as the punchline.[[/note]]


* ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'': Zen is particularly prone to this as Shirayuki and Obi quickly learn and is especially annoyed when his friends try to hide or play down illnesses or injuries. Obi manages to earn this reaction out of Zen , Shirayuki, Mitsuhide and Kiki when he leaves during the night with one of his former associates without telling anyone where he's actually going just leaving a note under Zen's pillow saying he'll be back by morning. He seems both cowed and relieved when they track him down before dawn has even fully broke and he grins in response to Shirayuki and Zen's anger at learning he was injured since he never before had anyone he trusted and cared for the way he does the two of them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2Remake'', Marvin is far more harsh and stern with Leon in their final encounter, as Marvin knows he is badly wounded and will succumb to the zombie infection soon, despite Leon's attempts to bring him to a hospital. Marvin even pointed a gun at Leon to make him leave but it's clear that he did so as he was more concerned about Leon's safety.


* Anemone from ''Anime/EurekaSeven'', [[spoiler:who has only just realized she is in love with Dominic when he leaves around the same time, goes to save him when she accidentally attacks him with her mech while he's falling from the sky, clinging to a ref board to try and save her. She admonishes him for doing something so reckless, even though they're ''both'' in a freefall at this point. Now she's normally been pretty harsh on poor [[DoggedNiceGuy Dominic]] until now, but fortunately for him, she lets it slide. Cue BigDamnKiss]].

* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'': When [[spoiler: Casca attempted suicide by jumping off a cliff]], Guts rushes in to catch her just as she's falling and manages to drag her back up and throw her a good distance from the edge. Afterwards, he angrily yells at her to never do something so stupid like that again, especially after having sustained injury himself. Casca approaches Guts, tearfully yelling how foolish he was for saving her at the risk of his own safety. From this point, they both calm down and realize how much they don't want to lose the other, and [[BigDamnKiss they share their first kiss]]. [[TheyDo The rest]] [[TheirFirstTime is history.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': In Episode 100, Kaeloo voluntarily gets put in a LotusEaterMachine which she never wants to leave. When her friends decide to get her to stop, they find out that she has undergone SanitySlippage. [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Mr. Cat]] starts angrily screaming at her to stop using the machine because he's worried for her safety.


* ''FanFic/EscapeFromTheMoon'': In the sequel ''The Mare From the Moon'', Spike starts to lose his temper with Twilight out of worry for her because she's been acting so oddly the last few days. Then he finds out ''why'' she’s been acting that way and softens up.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': In the sequel ''Picking up the Pieces'', Vix-Lei knows Page would invoke this and get ''ticked'' if she found out Night tried to keep his health issues (his wing and heart checkup) from her. In order to avoid it, she informs Night that she'll be letting Page know the full results (with Night Blade's reluctant agreement) as soon as she can.


* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' played with this one in the Leliel/Dirac sea episode. Asuka is clearly aiming for the trope, but she keeps having to take a number as first Misato and then Rei "butt in", after Shinji reappears. She's left at a low simmer, but Shinji sees her the second time and seems to understand.

Related to HowDareYouDieOnMe, except it's milder, as in, "how dare you put yourself in so much danger." May also involve a SlapSlapKiss. Contrast TearfulSmile, which occurs when Alice is still distraught even when she's happy. Good odds for a [[{{Tsundere}} Punchy Love]]-type to be this if he/she is far enough on the "punchy" side. Compare IHaveJustOneThingToSay and ArsonMurderAndLifeSaving.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Grandia}}'', Justin must go through one of two magical portals. The right one will let him put an end to the deadly, acidic rain that's harming the locals, while the wrong one will kill him outright. When he doesn't immediately come back out, Feena (who chose the portal) begins to panic. He only shows up again as they're leaving the collapsing dungeon, and Feena responds as expected.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''FanFic/TheFlashSentryChronicles'' (''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls''): Twilight does this to Flash a lot due to him always putting himself in danger. This was especially after he almost died against Sombra.


* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': The A-ranked support conversation between Midori and Kiragi has the latter retrieving a rare flower for the former (a possible call back to ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' which had Morgan do the same for Nah). Said flower only grows over ''dormant volcanoes'', which are nevertheless covered with poisonous gas. Naturally, Midori tears into Kiragi for risking his life for her.

** Similar situation with Australian man, who went on a trip to one of Australia's Nature Parks and got lost for five days. He was drinking from river and eating eucalyptus leaves (those things are not nutritious enough even to Koalas and they eat nothing else). His wife has reacted to it by saying ''I am gonna hug and then slap him.'' It's probable that her actual response would have to be heavily censored by the newspaper so they wrote this instead.
* In fact, a common reaction by parents whose children have done something silly like wandering off in a shop or park and getting lost is--upon retrieving the child--to tear them off a strip about it. Similarly happens with teachers of small children who may have wandered off or maybe simply gotten lost during a field trip. The same can be said of parents that punish their kids for being out past curfew, especially if the children never called to say they'd run late.
** This kind of thing can have tragic results, (see WellIntentionedExtremist below) such as when a highly Christian parent is furious over their child coming out to them, for fear that their offspring will suffer in the afterlife if they are not stopped now. Same with a parent becoming a harsh and demanding EducationMama (or Papa) due to fear their child will end up starving on the street if they are not pushed to work/study hard.
* In a more serious version, is why relationships between "normal healthy" people and those who are disadvantaged/disabled in some way (from a physical illness, to a mental illness, to an addiction or whatever, or who simply are on the extreme other side of the class divide, et cetera) ''and'' relationships that are between the disadvantaged/disabled but where one partner is more capable of functioning/appearing normal take a lot more effort to maintain than relationships between people who are roughly at the same point. For example, a normal healthy person may feel this way over his/her depressed partner's suicidal feelings--and make them ''worse'' accidentally by the depressed partner taking the anger as being personal hatred toward them and/or another reason why they're better off dead.
** This can also be said for parents of disabled children. In some cases, the feeling of being helpless to a child's condition or odd/destructive behaviors due to mental/medical issues can cause a lot of stress on said caregiver, who is constantly worried about their charge's ability to survive in the world with their illness, leading to WhyCouldntYouBeDifferent and taking their stress out on the child unintentionally.
* It's common for a WellIntentionedExtremist to invoke this, such a person with a certain political or religious view trying to force their opinion on others, getting increasingly frustrated by said other party constantly turning their views down in favor of their own, even though the Extremist believes the opposition is setting themselves up for disaster and really needs to change for their own good or safety.
* Let's face it: a number of parents have almost certainly done this at some point. After all, being scared out of their wits when their child goes missing and being angry at all the wasted stress when it turns out they were just messing around on their own and totally forgot about them are both probably the most natural human reactions there are.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Fanfic/CrimsonAndEmerald'', Gran Torino attempts to kick Izuku in the face for running off in the middle of a Noumu attack. Hawks intervenes before Torino could land the hit.


* In ''Disney/MonstersInc'', when Sulley and Mike find Boo after she ran away in the office building and [[spoiler:they presumed she got killed in a garbage masher]], Sulley reveals his parental instinct toward her by sternly saying "Don't you EVER run away from me again, young lady!" Then he hugs her and adds "But I'm so glad you're safe...!"
