** In the Sun & Moon series, Bewear takes this trope UpToEleven and is literally a MamaBear. She is extremely fond of both her cub and Team Rocket and if she feels any of them are in danger, she will go berserk and even annihilate an ''Ultra Beast'' [[CurbStompBattle single-handedly]] (Pheromosa, whose physical attacks would have been halved anyway thanks to Bewear's ability Fluffy)


* ''Anime/{{Trigun}}'': Rem Saverem which is the reason why Vash and Knives weren’t killed as babies [[spoiler: since they were [[HumanAliens Plants]] and Rem protected them from the [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters asshole humans]] and took it upon herself to look after them]]. In both the Manga and Anime it can be argued Rem could’ve done a better job as Mama Bear at least in regards to Knives whose StartOfDarkness began when he witnessed/experienced the worst of humanity while Vash who was helped and [[MommasBoy coddled]] by Rem therefore gained a sense righteous goodness.

** Nami like Bellemere, becomes a Mama Bear likely due losing her adoptive mother at such early age. In Arlong Park she stops a village boy trying to take revenge on Arlong for killing his father by whacking him down with her bo-staff, but she also drops a huge stack of money next to his head and Nami [[GoldDigger almost never gives money away]]. In Punk Hazard Nami is a complete Mama Bear to the children who were being experimented on as she cannot bring herself to run away from the Caesar's men while the kids beg for help, she stands her ground and inspires Sanji and Franky to respectively go PapaWolf.

In Arlong Park she stops a village boy from trying to take revenge on Arlong for killing his father by whacking him down with her bo-staff, but then she also drops a huge stack of money next to his head and Nami [[GoldDigger ''[[GoldDigger almost never gives money away]]. away]]''. In Punk Hazard Nami is a complete Mama Bear to the children who were being experimented on on, as she cannot bring herself to run away from the Caesar's men while the kids beg for help, she stands her ground and inspires Sanji and Franky to respectively go PapaWolf.



** Robin while not as explicit as Nami when it comes this trope is nevertheless one as well. In {{Filler}} she takes care of a little girl called Lil for the most of the arc to point where the Lil refused to let Robin leave her. Robin also helps take care of the kids in Punk Hazard and looks after Rebecca in Dressrosa, like Nami this care for children stems from losing her mother at a tender age. Played straight in Wano as when little girl Toko is about to get killed by the Shogun and Robin (despite being hunted by ninjas herself) picks Toko up and protects her, she even makes sure Toko gets back her home safely.

*** Can't forget Bellemere was dying on a battlefield when she found Nami and Nojiko, but [[WorthLivingFor they gave her to will to live]], sail all the way back to Cocoyashi Village and hysterically demand they get medical attention first even if she was more wounded. Then adopt both girls when she was back to health.

* Played with in ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Part 2 [[spoiler: in regards to Lisa Lisa towards her only son Joseph, she doesn't go easy on him during Hamon training and overall treats him pretty coldly, however when one vampire Wired Black gives Joseph a surprise attack, Lisa Lisa swiftly moves in front her son and obliterates the vampire with a her Hamon infused scarf. It's also more apparent whenever her son is danger she expresses her concern and even shouts guidance to him in the heat of battle and Lisa Lisa cries TearsOfJoy to see her son alive again after the FinalBattle. It's probably a DownplayedTrope because Lisa Lisa became a criminal as a result of being a ActionMom in the past and she knows her son can look after himself, in fact when shit hits the fan in the climax the [[ParentsInDistress roles are switched]].]]

** Speaking of Tsunade, she herself has often overlooked Mama Bear moment towards Naruto in her introduction arc. While she couldn't care less about him when Jiraiya brings Naruto along to meet her but upon discovering how similar he is to her dead little brother Nawaki and dead boyfriend Dan, Tsunade's attitude gradually changes. The crowning moment comes when Orochimaru directly tries to kill Naruto, and Tsuande continuously [[TuckAndCover shields him with her body]] [[https://i2.mangareader.net/naruto/169/naruto-1566792.jpg getting badly slashed]] and impaled by Orochimaru as a result... ''and this was when [[AfraidofBlood she had haemophobia]] by the way'' and through this action Tsunade gets her [[SuperStrength strength]] back allowing her to beat the crap out of Orochimaru with [[PapaWolf Jiraiya]] joining her.

** Gine, Goku's mother was this as well as seen in ''Dragonball Minus'' and ''Anime/DragonBallSuperBroly'' as she is adamantly against sending Goku to Earth despite Bardock's insistence that Freiza is a threat to Planet Vegeta. Gine even says she'll go to Earth (along with Bardock) to bring Goku back her husband turns out to be wrong... [[EarthShatteringKaboom he wasn't]].
