* Michael Myers is quite fond of his mother in Rob Zombie's ''Film/{{Halloween 2007}}'' and ''Film/HalloweenII2009''. Not only does he kill the kids who insult his mom, he also has hallucinations about her [[WomanInWhite wearing completely white]] and urging him on while he murders.

* In the film Anime/DragonballSuperBroly, it is astoundingly shown that even a short tempered genocidal BadBoss like Frieza cannot bring himself to even ''raise his voice'', much less vaporize his lady in attendant Berryblue, for warmly teasing him about his height, but instead affectionately confides his insecurities to her with ''absolute'' sincerity. Since she is shown in the prologues to have being by his side since childhood (before he overtook Planet Vegeta, in fact), Berryblue is all but implied to be Frieza's childhood nanny. As the closest thing he has to a mother, it's only natural that she would be the one person that he would genuinely love, and dare to be sincere and vulnerable to.

** In the same movie Raditz (yes ''that'' Raditz) was very respectful towards Gine calling her “mom” despite Saiyans supposedly having no concept of family, and [[WordOfGod apparently]] Gine was very proud of Raditz becoming Vegeta’s partner. Dragon Ball Minus also implies Gine messaged Raditz about Goku traveling to Earth meaning Raditz might’ve gone to retrieve his brother on her orders.
*** Its noticeably that despite Raditz not getting along with his father Bardock when they meet in games, Raditz has nothing bad to say about Gine.



* Mina, a Contractor introduced in the second season of ''Anime/DarkerThanBlack'' gradually comes across as an AntiVillain, but is icily emotionless and kills without mercy (but also without taking any pleasure in the act). It's implied that she was disowned from her family prior to becoming a Contractor (perhaps because of her lesbianism), and while she doesn't get along with her father, she is taken aback when he tells her that her mother is on her death bed, and [[TinMan to her surprise]], this distracts her during a fight with Hei.

to:

** [[spoiler: Sanji similar to Ace, loathes his father’s Judge and generally acts like a HotBlooded jerk to most people he meets. Sora his mother, on other hand, Sanji adored with all his heart and likely contributed to his universal love [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl and care]] for all women]].
** All 46 sons of the Evil Matriarch Charlotte Lilin aka Big Mom are insanely loyal to her and despite her immense strength care greatly when she’s in danger. Of course this “love” might also count as “fearful respect” since Big Mom’s sons are ''well aware'' how terrible she is during an UnstoppableRage and how she won’t hesitate [[AbusiveParents to hurt her children]].

Added DiffLines:

** In ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'', this is how everything got started... he just wanted Momma Laufey's approval, and it all snowballed into Asgard getting destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

** Coincidentally, in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarIII'' [[spoiler: Kronos' main motive for attempting to kill Kratos is to avenge Gaia. In mythology, Gaia is the mother of Kronos. If this holds true in God of War lore, this means the reason you fight Kronos is because the latter thinks his mother died by Kratos' hand.]]

Added DiffLines:

---> I'm not a crazed gunman, Dad, I'm an assassin! There's a difference! ... Well the difference is one's a paying job and the other's mental sickness! ... Dad? ... Dad! DAD! Put Mom on the phone!!!


* In ''ComicBook/BackToBrooklyn'', Paul Saetta's last words before dying is to ask his brother Bob to take care of their mother.

** His grandfather, Darth Vader, also loves his mother very much. One particular moment that starts his [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope jump off the slippery slope]] is when, while was still Anakin Skywalker, his mother Shmi was kidnapped and later killed [[RapePillageAndBurn by Tusken Raiders]] and he decided to KillEmAll in retaliation. [[note]] In Legends it is also revealed that his homeworld Tatooine would become BerserkButton of sorts after this incident, and so Anakin (and later Vader) never even goes near the Tatooine system if he can avoid it. This why he never personally leads the search for the Death Star plans beyond the ''Tantive IV'' in ''Film/ANewHope'' [[/note]]

* ''Literature/StarWarsLegends'': Han Solo's cousin Thracken Sal-Solo was a greedy, power-hungry bigot who killed Corellia's leader, seized power, wanted to force planets into submission with a space station, was willing to kidnap, betray and even kill Han and the rest of the Solos...but he loved his mother, Tiion Sal-Solo, and was known to be violently protective of her.

** Believe it or not, '''Dio Brando himself''' counts. In Part 1, he harbors a fierce anger towards his father Dario because, according to Dio in his own words, he "made [my] Mother suffer", and he said this to Jotaro when he could have just said that he made ''him'' suffer. He cried ManlyTears when his father ordered him to sell his mother's old dress for booze. And shortly before becoming a vampire, Dio fought a duo of drunk JerkAss vagrants [[YourMom because they insulted his mother]]. Of course, it is possible he stopped caring after turning into a vampire, but it is quite surprising that, at least at one point, someone like Dio could have loved his mother, maybe even to the point of her death being his StartOfDarkness.

* [[ElP Run The Jewels's]] ''Oh Mama'' is halfway between a BoastfulRap and this trope; the refrain [[DeconstructedTrope lamenting the toll that their criminal acts take on the mother's psyche. ]]

Added DiffLines:

* As if Wrestling/EddieKingston didn't treat everything as incredibly serious ''already'', if he mentions his "beautiful mother's eyes" in his promo, then, as he said in his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1AGjIQKxNE promo]] before ''CHIKARA High Noon'', November 13, 2011, "get ready for a war."

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheDeadZone'', Greg Stillson might literally KickTheDog, terrify teenagers and threaten bankers' families, he might eventually even bring about a nuclear holocaust, but he lived with and supported his mother until she died, and she was the only important woman in his life.


** In ''Black Hills'', a DumbMuscle-type named Nebraska Kid is challenged to a swordfight which requires both participants to strip to the waist. He does so reluctantly, revealing [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments a giant flower tattoo with "To My Mommy" written around it]]. He then warns the people watching that the first to laugh gets it good.

'''Daken:''' That's my mother you're speaking of!
** The above quote was also a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}, as nobody present was aware that Daken was actually Wolverine's son at the time. Their expressions were priceless.

* [[BigBad Scorpius]] from ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' genuinely loves his mother, in spite of having never met her [[DeathByChildbirth for obvious reasons]], and flies into a furious rage when he discovers [[spoiler: [[ChildByRape that he was produced when his mother was raped]] as part of a Scarren breeding program]], and it is this, as well as his own abusive childhood at the hands of the Scarrens, that fuels his deep hatred for them. Later, [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments he is seen cracking a genuine smile as he caresses a flower that reminds him of his mother]].

* ''ComicBook/BuckyOHareAndTheToadWars'' gave us Bruiser, the Betelgeusian Berserker Baboon. SpaceMarine by trade, OneManArmy by inclination, [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome broke enemy resistance across entire planets by yelling at people on TV]] ''[[UpToEleven on two separate occasions]]'' and unrepentant MamasBoy. However, there is a darker tone to all this, since it's heavily implied that his mother is all the family Bruiser has left (his father is never shown, and his brother is outright stated to have fallen in the line of duty).

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheThreeHostages'', when the villain learns that the heroes have discovered and captured the secret location where the third hostage was being held, overseen by the villain's mother, his first reaction is fear for his mother's safety, and only then concern for the failure of his plot and the security of his global criminal conspiracy.

Added DiffLines:

* In [[https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx3tC1ZlqDD/ this post]] from Wrestling/TaelerHendrix' Instagram, she says that her body is all natural due to genetics and that "Momma knows best" when it comes to dealing with bullies.

Added DiffLines:

* From the ProfessionalWrestling series ''Fanfic/TheJWL'': Wrestling/CodyRhodes did [[BerserkButton not]] like Wrestling/SamoaJoe calling him "the son of [[Wrestling/DustyRhodes a moron]]" on [[http://www.angelfire.com/fl3/jasonsite/jwl73.html Episode 73]].
