* A different case from most in ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollhunters}}'', as 1) Jim's Dad been gone has nothing to do with the plot, it just gets mentioned a few times, 2) They know exactly why he left (to run off with a girlfriend) and 3) Jim has long since gotten over the fact that his dad is gone, at least for the most part, as his disdain for his birthday, the same day his father left his father, shows, though he does at one point pretend to actively care as a way to keep his life as the Trollhunter a secret from his mom.

Perhaps he's died, maybe he was [[YouKilledMyFather murdered]]. Perhaps he's left and there's bitterness involved. Perhaps he's off fighting evil. Or maybe it's psychological absence -- he's physically there, but is completely negligent in his fatherly duties. Regardless of what happened -- and regardless of whether or not the viewers find out what happened -- Mom seems to have raised her children on her own, or with the help of a father substitute.

** In "Free To Be You And Me", Dean hauls Castiel off to a brothel to [[AManIsNotAVirgin lose his virginity]]. Castiel gets invited into a backroom with one of the girls. Moments later she runs out of the room shouting obscenities at him. Cas apparently read her mind, and casually told her it wasn't her fault her dad left her family when she was little.
