* [[UsefulNotes/ElizabethI Princess Elizabeth]], in ''Elizabeth I: Red Rose of the House of Tudor'' from TheRoyalDiaries, completely adores her father but she feels that he never notices her. For a moment though, she is truly his favorite when she defends her weak brother and he tells her that she is the true Tudor rose. At least partially TruthInTelevision; many historians have noted that all three of Henry VIII's children idolized him, while his affection for them was strong but tended to wax and wane depending on what else was happening.

* Richard Series/{{Castle}} may be a horndog, an egotist, and a bestselling writer of pulp noir mysteries, but he'd move heaven and earth for his daughter Alexis. For her part, Alexis is (against all odds and most understandings of genetics ''and'' environment) a sensible, studious, smart young girl who loves and understands her father. One episode opens with them fencing, quoting ''RobinHood'', and talking about Alexis's new crush (at the same time); another has them playing laser tag. It's clearly an absolute blast for both. Say what you want about Richard Castle, but he's a ''great'' father. One nice quote:
-->'''Castle''': When I was your age... I can't tell that story, it's wildly inappropriate. Which, oddly, is my point--don't you want to have wildly inappropriate stories you can't tell your children when you're older?\\
'''Alexis''' (affectionately): Don't worry, I think you'll have enough for both of us.

* Almost once a season, there tends to be a Father-Daughter team on ''Series/TheAmazingRace''. Gary and Mallory, from Seasons 17 and 18, are a textbook example of this. Heck, Mallory has even stated she's the only girl (has three brothers) and is the youngest.
* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'': Claire ("Claire-Bear") Bennet is the most important person in the world to her completely bad-ass adoptive father, Noah Bennet. It's a double-edged sword, because while Noah would do absolutely anything to protect her, he is also not above lying, manipulating and treating her like a far younger child. Although, he's often revealed to be right about whatever point he's trying to make. And Claire has this whole love/hate relationship with Noah - she loves him, she hates him, she knows he's right but thinks she's right, she'll never trust him again, he's her father, he's the devil, lather rinse repeat - that can wound him like nothing and no one else.

* Princess Mary is alternately this and not this to her temperamental father, Henry VIII, in ''Series/TheTudors.'' Though Henry adores Mary and dotes on her during her early childhood, he sends Mary away to her own estate when he divorces her mother, Catherine of Aragon, and marries Anne Boleyn (leading to some guilt-ridden, intense scenes on the rare occasion Henry sees his estranged daughter during this period). When Mary, a devout Catholic, refuses to recognize her father as head of the church, Henry forces her hand with an indirect threat of execution. As soon as Mary relents, Henry welcomes her back with open arms and restores her status as a princess.
