* ''StepByStep'': Frank Lambert was a clear example, usually by trying too hard be the father. This often annoyed or outright angered eldest stepdaughter Dana many times, who viewed him as uncouth and uneducated ... but many times, Dana could rely on Frank to stick up for her in her time of need.

* Ichigo's dad in ''TokyoMewMew'' is a bit...off his rocker, but nonetheless a very nice guy. Ichigo speaks of him and her mother as her "ideal couple", and hopes that she and her love interest Aoyama will be like them one day.

* Jun Kurosu's father, Akinari Kashihara, in ''{{Persona 2}}: Innocent Sin'', which contributed to his divorce, and lead to [[spoiler:young Jun's embarrassed lies about his father, which created a shadow copy of Akinari that Nyarlathotep took over]]. Somewhat de-Bumbled in the second half of P2, ''Eternal Punishment'', enough to at least keep his marriage intact.

** UpToEleven in Anime/DragonBallSuper. While Goku in DBZ was clever at times, in Super he is portrayed as completely childish most of the time, until it comes to fighting which he's even more obsessed over. In DBZ, Goku fought to protect those he cared about, in Super he acts like he can't live unless he's in some form of combat.

* ''Film/MrMom'' is about a bumbling dad who has to stay at home and take care of the kids while his wife works.
** Really a subversion. Once he stops feeling sorry for himself about being unemployed and his wife being the breadwinner, he gets it together and gets quite good in the role.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' Isshin Kurosaki, Ichigo's widower father. [[spoiler:However, we learn later on that Isshin is in fact an exiled captain-level shinigami, and that his goofiness is a put-on. He's still goofy after TheReveal, just more of a {{Badass}}. Also, most of his goofiness with relation to Ichigo was actually him being a StealthMentor, teaching Ichigo how to fight without Ichigo even realizing it]]. He is still, however, a complete incompetent boob when it comes to Yuzu and Karin.
