* ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'': What little James Vega mentions about his father doesn't paint their relationship in a good light. As the Reaper invasion means Shepard has a lot less time to sort out their teammates' personal issues, whatever caused the falling-out remains a mystery the whole game. The Homeworlds comic shows what happened.

*In some ''Anime/KillLaKill'' AlternateUniverseFic|s, we have this the case when it comes to Ryuuko and Satsuki's parents. In one fic (before it was deleted), ''Sounds of Silence'', Soichiro mostly appears in flashbacks but doesn't in the present, although Ragyo mentioned an accident, implying that he had passed away in said accident. Likewise, by different authors, some fics have it where he does die, through via whatever, while others simply doesn't bring him up.

* This was a thing in the original ''ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog'' dealing with the Guardians as the former Guardian would leave his son to guard the island by his lonesome. This would really backfire on Knuckles, especially since his time as Guardian coincided with Robotnik's rise to power. And let's not get into all of the Disappeared Dads caused by Robotnik and Eggman.
