* Inversion: The ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}'' episode "The Son Dad Never Had" presented the Ghost With The Most taking on the persona of cousin B.J. (taking on the size and demeanor of a 12-year old) bonding with Lydia's dad Charles while she's busy with a project. Lydia, upon seeing this, starts thinking she's unwanted--until she sees Beetlejuice fleecing Charles for money. Lydia sends BJ. home, much to her dad's relief. And as it turns out, he loves to do things with Lydia, which he describes as "us" things.

* ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'': Goofy drags his son Max to a cross-country trip like the ones he took with his dad (which he remembers very fondly, in a subversion of this trope). Along the way there's a stop at a [[SouvenirLand dilapidated theme park]] and a short fishing lesson interrupted by [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfoot]]. [[spoiler: Oh, and they never actually finish the trip.]]

* Thane and Kolyat seem to be headed for this in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''.

* Thane and Kolyat seem to be headed for this in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. If Thane survives the suicide mission it's shown in the third game that they ''did'' manage to to connect, perhaps even better than they [[WhenYouComingHomeDad had before.]]

* Bart going fishing with Flanders (not really Bart's father, but in this specific instance clearly acts as father figure) in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie''. But, here this is very much appreciated by the boy. Earlier in the movie Homer did take Bart fishing, just with a bug zapper. Later there's an averted example where Homer invites Bart on a particularly badass motorcycle ride, which mends some of the rift between them.

* One episode of ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' starts with a father taking his son fishing. The son does not enjoy it--until his dad fishes up a dead body. Suddenly it's the most BadAss fishing trip ever.

Added DiffLines:

* In documentary ''Film/HoopDreams'', Bo Agee leaves the family for a while due to a severe cocaine problem. He eventually makes it back into his son Arthur's life, and they play a one-on-one basketball game in the park. It gets edgy and ill-tempered.

* In one Radio/AdventuresInOdyssey episode (from the album A Date with Dad and Other Calamities), Ed Washington takes his daughter Tamika on a day of Awkward Father-Daughter Activities when he feels like he's losing touch with the teenager she's becoming. Said activities are based on her interests as a much younger child and merely wind up embarrassing her. The episode ends with Ed learning that he needs to relate to his daughter as the person she is, not the one he remembers, while Tamika realizes that her father is genuinely trying to have fun with her and that she should make an effort to appreciate that he wants to be involved in her life. They find a mutually agreeable activity and ultimately wind up averting this trope.
