* ''Series/FreshPrinceOfBelAir'' devotes a full episode to that. Will's birth-dad Lou comes and Will's excited about taking a trip with him, only to be abandoned again. The episode ends with Will sobbing in Uncle Phil's arms and realizing he's the closest to a real father he could ever ask for.

In order to create a baby, a man and a woman need to have sex. [[note]] Barring, of course, artificial insemination, [[CloningBlues cloning]], or the odd MysticalPregnancy. [[//note]] Strictly speaking for the man this is an act of minimal investment since he can (and sometimes does) ditch the woman and leave her holding the bag (or baby, if you will). Unless she gets an abortion ([[GoodGirlsAvoidAbortion which she only very rarely does]]) or puts the baby up for adoption, she either has to raise the child alone or with the help of a stepfather.

* In ''Film/AStoryOfFloatingWeeds'', Kihachi, the leader of an itinerant theater troupe, has never even told Shinkichi that he is his father, and he's been away for years at a time to boot. This does not stop him from getting all self-righteous and trying to act like a protective dad when one of the actresses in his troupe seduces Shinkichi.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' fanfiction ''[[http://dark-solace.org/elysian/viewstory.php?sid=4134 The Light of the World]]'' plays with this, in that it's revealed that Dawn, Buffy's magically created sister, was created from Buffy (making her the "mother") and Spike (making him the "father"). Spike slipping easily into the life makes sense because A) Dawn currently doesn't know he's her actual father, and B) even though she appears to be fourteen (and remembers fourteen years of her life) she [[YoungerThanTheyLook really isn't that old at all]].

* Deconstructed in ''SakendeYaruze''. When they initially meet for the first time Shino is reluctant but quickly decides to take Nakaya in and they get along well despite the fact Shino wasn't there for the first 17 years of Nakaya's life. However, their relationship proceeds to go through a series of ups and downs, Shino trying to act like a father when Nakaya doesn't want him to or not acting like a father when he does want him to, while Nakaya at times idolizes Shino and then at others pushes him away. In the end Nakaya decides to move out because he feels uncomfortable with his father's new relationship but doesn't want to ask Shino to give it up because their father-son bond is too new for him to feel right in doing so.

* {{Deconstructed}} in ''Film/TheKidsAreAllRight'', which takes a serious look at the ethical ramifications of this trope. Paul's apparent status as an instant parent comes off as insulting to Nic, as she and Jules were the ones who actually raised the kids. At the same time, the kids' desire to know their bio-daddy is shown as nuanced and reasonable-he is, after all, the only biological connection between them.

** Booth and Brennan themselves averted this trope in "The Cricket in the Cabernet", when Brennan, in the middle of a WordAssociationTest, suddenly announced, [[MyBiologicalClockIsTicking "I want a baby"]]. She decided she wanted a child through artificial insemination and wanted Booth to be the donor, but Booth was initially reluctant, especially when Brennan indicated that his involvement in her child's life would end at conception. The plot was more or less abandoned after Booth suddenly had to have surgery to remove a brain tumor. Two seasons, as many [[RomanticFalseLead Romantic False Leads]] and several TearJerker moments later, [[TheyDo they conceived a child the old-fashioned way]].
