Fathers in anime, and often in {{Sitcom}}s, tend to be [[strike: borderline]] homicidal in protecting the celibacy and chastity of their daughters. To these endearingly {{Overprotective Dad}}s, their daughters will ''always'' be their little girls; for a boy to even hold hands with her, much less take her FirstKiss or give her heavy petting, is as bad as rape in his eyes. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown God help you]] if you are caught in bed with her, even if its NotWhatItLooksLike.

This is a subtrope of DotingParent. Mothers who follow this trope enthusiastically play TheMatchmaker and offer invaluable assistance, such as dressing her up for dates, setting up these dates (which will often include a keepsake from ''her'' mother for luck), offering advice to the would be knight in shining armor on her likes and hobbies, or setting up situations that will bring the two young lovebirds closer together.

* LightNovel/NogizakaHarukaNoHimitsu: Even if the fearsome [[strike: crime boss]] businessman Nogizaka Gento wants his little girl Nogizaka Haruka to stay "pure" forever, his very "convincing" wife, Akiho, isn't going to have any of that, oh no...
* ''Manga/MyBrideIsAMermaid'': Compared to her [[strike: borderline]] psychotic husband Seto Gozaburo, who has a tendency to send ''assassins'' after his son in law Nagasumi, Mermaid Yakuza Queen Seto Ren was absolutely delighted when she mistook his drying of her daughter San's fins as public sex ''("My oh my, kids will do it anywhere these days.")'' She provides (not so) helpful love potions to speed up their blossoming marriage along with advice and encouragement, when she's not occasionally trying to seduce the boy herself, that is.

* ''Film/FatherOfTheBride'' : George Banksis an example of this throughout the entire movie and into the sequel. He hates the idea of his daughter getting married, dislikes her fiance the moment he meets him and continues to do so despite the young man's many attributes--a nice guy with good looks/education/job/family, and when his daughter announces her pregnancy, is further incensed and completely convinced that the young man somehow took advantage of her. Needless to say, his wife's feelings are the complete opposite of his.
