Abusive Parents/New Media

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Aryan Nation, a white supremacist "superhero" from the Global Guardians PBEM Universe, admits that the reason he took to crimefighting was to repudiate the abuse his trailer-trash, redneck father heaped upon him while growing up, and is actually proud of the fact that he's not "some drunken Klansman in a bedsheet burning crosses", despite still being a racist Jerkass. The fact that he's doing the very same thing to his own kids that his father did to him hasn't occurred to Aryan Nation yet.
  • Arthur's parents in Theatrica.
  • Occurs so frequently in Survival of the Fittest that it isn't even funny. A good example would be Mariavel Varella (V2's favourite Villain Sue), although a large majority of V1 characters seem to have them too, and the trope is also strongly evident in V2. Fortunately, it has apparently dried up in the third game,, being far less common. Not rare enough, however, for a majority of handlers not to be thoroughly sick of the trope though.
  • Elsdon's father in The Eternal Dungeon series for no apparent reason at first and then in a strange, backfired attempt to "fix" Elsdon of his own sadism. Elsdon is understandably self-hating and mostly Ax Crazy at the beginning of the series until he's given a chance to channel his own desires productively.
  • In Pony Dot Mov, Pinkie claims that her father forces her to shove glass up her vagina.
  • MSF High Forum: Destiny's mom wanted to possess her daughter to avoid growing old and dying, she killed destiny's father to do this followed by being killed herself along with Destiny.
    • And that's not getting into Casey's folks....
  • In Nameless, it's heavily implied that Miller's mom molested him, which could possibly be the reason why he's so screwed up.
  • Generator's dad, in the Whateley Universe. Physically and emotionally abusive, especially after Generator's mother was killed (which may have been dad's fault). Generator would have been beaten to death if she hadn't manifested her mutant power right then. Money? All gone now that dad's on the run from the police for other crimes. The only reason dad didn't rape her is probably because she wasn't a girl back when she was living with her father.
  • Ask That Guy and the Nostalgia Critic; Ask That Guy seems to think that he was never good enough and they told him that he would have go to back in the dumpster where they found him, while the Critic portrayed them as monsters ripping him apart in a kindergarten drawing. And Ask That Guy's response to "Why does Daddy hit Mommy?" and the Critic apparently hiding in the cupboard when he was scared seem pretty suspect, as are Critic's rants on dreams not coming true and parents putting pressure on their kids.. Also, with Critic being a weepy Psychopathic Manchild and Ask That Guy having twisted views on sex and women, it was pretty obvious from the start.
    • Also treated for laughs was the The Nostalgia Chick's childhood. Her mother made her feel inadequate, her uncle sexually abused her and her father never gave her any love. Word Of Lindsay is that she retreated into always watching television to escape her parents yelling.
  • Grig from Vigor Mortis beat his son.
