* ''{{Guyver}}'' has one of the most brutal subversions ever. Sho's father [[spoiler:was turned into a Guyver-killing Zoanoid who damaged Guyver 1's brain. The Guyver, on autopilot, killed Mr. Fukamachi, but Sho didn't remember it. He eventually found out and developed a psychosomatic block against activating the Guyver, until Aptom threatened Mizuki and forced him to change.]] What's even more painful is that while this all happened in the manga (and the most recent anime repeats it all, sometimes panel for panel), the anime specifically spent much more time on strengthening Sho's relationship to his father.
* In ''CaptainTsubasa'', Tsubasa's father works abroad (though he makes efforts to keep contact through letters and visits) so Tsubasa is raised mostly by his mother and later by both her and Roberto Hongo, Dad's best friend. Additionally, [[TheRival Kojiro Hyuuga]] lost his father at an early age (in an accident, the manga says; of illness, the old anime says, though to be fair the issue came up ''years'' later) and runs part-time works to help the mother and siblings he adores.

** In the DLC stage [[spoiler: ''Heirs of Fates'']], [[spoiler: there's an AlternateUniverse in which Anankos managed to take over several different Deeprealms and kill pretty much everyone there. The fathers of the children characters that manage to escape (or [[MissingMom mother]] in the case of Male Kana) are specifically said to have died [[PapaWolf to make sure their kids would survive]]. In a subversion, Anankos revives said fathers (plus the Female Avatar and the royal grandparents, save for Garon) to force the kids fight them... and in a DoubleSubversion, once this is done the kids return to their restored worlds, where their parents have been revived.]]
