* Kya in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender''. Sort of - her Dad's still alive, he's just off fighting in the war, and has been gone for a couple of years when the series begins. But her main drive and source of internal conflict in the series is the death of her mom.

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': Bruce Wayne's parents, specifically in the film ''Film/BatmanBegins''. His parents worked hard to give Bruce a strong sense of justice and knowledge of right and wrong, and the importance of helping those who need it (although they meant using the family fortune to improve the lives of Gotham's citizens, as some stories portray them as pacifists who would've disapproved of Bruce's methods). These lessons naturally fueled his drive to become Batman after their deaths.

** In ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', Applejack, Apple Bloom, and Big Mac were raised by their paternal grandmother. They have few memories of their parents, and since NeverSayDie is an EnforcedTrope in the series, their parents' death is never explicitly dealt with. The season 7 episode "The Perfect Pear" reveals, through TellMeAboutMyFather stories from ponies who knew their parents, that Bright Mac and Pear Butter defied FeudingFamilies to be together and were parents anypony could be proud of.

* Ilulu from ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid'' had very good parents from what little we see of them (the fact that they didn't discourage her attempts to be friends with humans speaks volumes). Their deaths played a large role in her becoming a TragicBigot.

If it turns out that they weren't quite such amazing parents as believed by the characters, but still treated as such, then it's NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead. See GoodParents for examples of these who manage to stay alive.

* Given a {{Reconstruction}} in ''Series/{{Resurrection}}.'' Maggie's mother, Barbara, died apparently trying to save her nephew, Jacob, from a river. When Jacob [[BackFromTheDead returns]], he explains that no, actually ''he'' was trying to save ''her''--and it also comes out that Barbara was [[YourCheatingHeart cheating]] on Maggie's father. This naturally [[BrokenPedestal breaks]] Maggie's view of her mother, and she initially rejects Barbara when she also returns from the dead. However, Maggie later concedes that her view of Barbara was overly idealized, and she wants to get to know that real version now that she has a chance. [[spoiler:Pity it doesn't last long]].
