* Pictured above: In all continuities of ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', Asuka's mother Kyouko, driven by grief (and highly insane by other motives) [[spoiler: over her husband cheating on her with her doctor, as well as her soul being contained in EVA Unit-02, hangs herself and what she believes to be Asuka, a red-haired doll.]] The scene above, with Kyoko directly trying to strangle a little Asuka, seems to only have happened in the manga's continuity and is absent in the franchise's other iterations. Oddly, despite the fact that all main characters have parental issues, this is the only example of a parent that is ''actively'' trying to kill their kid.

** In ''Genbu Kaiden'' there's also [[spoiler: Takiko's love interest, Prince [[GenderBender Uruki]] of Hokkan. He was prophesied to [[SelfMadeOrphan kill his father]], Emperor Tegiru's brother Lord Temudan, so his mother Ayura sent Uruki away to save her child. Later, Uruki's guardian Soruen was killed by an assassin sent by Temudan, who had completely fallen into despair and wanted Uruki to die; Uruki tried to fulfill the prophecy, but failed and not only he had to flee to Kutou, he was deeply embittered until Takiko came along. Ultimately Uruki confronted Temudan, now the Emperor, but thanks to Takiko he ''didn't'' kill him; they were about to reach a sort-of agreement... and then a supporter of Tegiru (who had been executed under Temudan's orders) fatally injured Temudan. In the end, Temudan gave the throne to Uruki and passed away in his son's arms.]]
