* ''Manga/DontMeddleWithMyDaughter'''s premise is about Athena Haruka, [[RetiredBadass a retired superheroine turned housewife]], who finds out her 17 year old daughter Clara has unknowingly chosen to follow in her footsteps. It follows [[ActionMom Athena]] as she comes out of retirement and shows everyone, from monsters and enemies of all kinds to her old allies who recruited her kid in the first place, the lengths she'll go to, to ensure [[RookieRedRanger Clara's]] safety.



* ''[[Manga/UchiNoMusumeNiTeODasuNa Uchi no Musume Ni Te O Dasu Na's]]'' premise is about Athena Haruka, [[RetiredBadass a retired superheroine turned housewife]], who finds out her 17 year old daughter Clara has unknowingly chosen to follow in her footsteps. It follows [[ActionMom Athena]] as she comes out of retirement and shows everyone, from monsters and enemies of all kinds to her old allies who recruited her kid in the first place, the lengths she'll go to, to ensure [[RookieRedRanger Clara's]] safety. Hell, the very title of the manga means "Keep Your Hands Off My Daughter!"


** It's gets even more poignant and screwed up as [[JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind in the center of Casca's mind]] where all the pain and turmoil that turned her into degraded her [[TheOphelia mental state]] is, the cause of it isn't just because of The Eclipse, losing all her comrades, getting raped while her true love is forced to watch... ''it's because she lost her child''. That is why the last fragment of Casca's sanity is her child and only retrieving it truly heals Casca’s mind.

* In ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'', Chizuru slaps a high-ranking ''Demon'' when he breaks into their house and attacks Kotaro, whom she has decided to adopt. Although it wasn't really all that effective in the end, the fact that she managed to stop his attack cold is rather impressive for one who is supposed to be an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent...
** Once they get to the Magic World, there's a literal MamaBear. As in, a [[BeastMan bear-woman]] that the characters call "Mama". And she ''will'' wreck anyone who mistreats the slave girls [[spoiler:(Ako, Natsume and Akira)]] she's watching over: when their actual owner [[spoiler: Tohsaka]] tried to subject them to ElectricTorture, [[AlmightyMom she]] immediately pimp-slapped him until he stopped.



* [[ActionGirl Balsa]] of ''Anime/MoribitoGuardianOfTheSpirit'' may be [[ShelteredAristocrat Chagum's]] bodyguard, but when she said she would protect him, [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=EdkW7nHD5wU she meant it]]. [[BladeOnAStick That spear just isn't for show you know.]]

** Speaking of Tsunade, she herself has an 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''. Through this action Tsunade actually gets her [[SuperStrength strength]] back allowing her to beat the crap out of Orochimaru, with [[PapaWolf Jiraiya]] joining her.

** Shoko’s mother Yaeko is even more extreme and veers into [[OverprotectiveMom overprotective territory]]. Though given Shoko is deaf and has been tormented throughout her childhood [[BullyingTheDisabled because of it]], you can’t fault her harsh attitude. It’s for this reason that she initially doesn’t forgive Ishida or tolerate him hanging out with her daughter (due to him actively bullying Shoko in elementary childhood) despite his genuine attempts to make amends, even [[ArmourPiercingSlap slapping him]]. [[spoiler: Though later on, when Ishida gets accidentally hospitalised preventing Shoko’s suicide attempt she completely forgives him and [[ShipperOnDeck encourages]] Ishida to be with her daughter]]. Played straightest, when AlphaBitch Ueno is assaulting Shoko [[spoiler: for unintentionally getting Ishida hurt]], Yaeko steps in beats the shit out of Ueno to protect to her daughter.

** 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 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 appears to stem from losing her mother at a tender age. Played straight in Wano as when a little girl caled 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.

** Ishida's mother Miyako in goes MamaBear on ''him'' when she connects the dots, his oddly cleaned room, his sudden lack of possessions, the ripped in half calender marking down to the day when he without reason left a huge bundle of money by her bedside... and [[AdultFear realized]] her son had been planning to commit suicide. She absolutely rips into him, screaming to high heaven at him for even thinking of doing so and completely freaks out Ishida. She even literally threatens to (and accidentally does) burn the money, he earned saying she’d never want it at the cost of his life.

* Subverted in (of all series) ''Anime/DragonBallZ''. Goku's wife [[EducationMama Chi-Chi]] is odd in that she's both [[TookALevelInBadass taken a level in badass]] ''and'' was OvershadowedByAwesome alongside half the case... so she has her limits, but then again, ''[[{{Tsundere}} she has her limits]].'' Her VictoriousChildhoodFriend and husband has been dead for seven years, she's been led to believe that her older son has followed, and Chi-Chi is absolutely out of her mind with grief. While her father is able to hold her back the first time she tries to attack him, eventually she ''does'' walk right up to Super Buu, [[ArmorPiercingSlap slaps him]], and demands he bring Gohan back. Buu stares at her, turns her into an egg, and promptly crushes her. Worst of all, her ''seven-year-old son'' was [[HarmfulToMinors watching the entire time]].
