* While ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has its fair share of AbusiveParents, there are many who are very supportive and loving to their children, such as Delia to Ash, Grace to Serena and Meyer to Clemont and Bonnie. A general rule in-story is that, if any parent has a bloodliner child and doesn't fall into FantasticRacism, they're considered good ones.

** The DistantEpilogue shows that Harry and Ginny, as well as Ron and Hermione, grow up to be this for their own children. [[FanonDiscontinuity At least, as long as you don't read anything published after said epilogue]].

** Tytos Lannister is remembered fondly as a parent by Tywin, who even breaks out a rare smile whilst reminiscing about him. However, his skills as a liege Lord left much to be desired, especially in his elder son's eyes. A fact that drove Tywin to be a strong ruler who distanced himself emotionally from his children.

* ''Series/StrangerThings'' has Joyce Byers, while a bit scatter brained and not quite all there at times, is very supportive of her youngest son, Will's, interests which others view as "nerdy" and supports her other son, Jonathan, in his pursuit to attend NYU. She also refuses to give up looking for Will even when it appears all hope is lost and is costing her her sanity.
** Chief Hopper was this with his daughter as well, [[spoiler: before she died of cancer.]]
** Mike and Nancy's parents also qualify, with their mother, Karen, telling her children they can always talk to her and takes a vested interest in their lives and issues. Their father, Ted, while somewhat oblivious, is a caring father as well.

* The Shimogamo mother of the [[Literature/UchoutenKazoku Eccentric Family]] genuinely believes, in stark contrast with the common consensus, that all of her four sons are excellent raccoon-dogs each and every one of them fit to succeed their deceased father—a great community leader.

* Much of the story of the books of Anna Dewdney's ''Literature/LlamaLlama'' is about the warm relationship between Llama Llama and his Mama Llama, while ''Nelly Gnu and Daddy Too'' is about Nelly having a fun day with her father making a box fort. In the AnimatedAdaptation, Mama Llama is considered such an important character that her voice actress was the first to be announced and a celebrity voice actor at that, Creator/JenniferGarner.

* ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'':
** Fred Andrews, Archie's father, is calm and supportive of his son in all things. The worst he ever does is emphasize Archie's football over his music--and when this DoubleStandard is pointed out to him, he immediately rectifies it by soundproofing the garage for Archie to practice in.
** Fred stands out so much because every other parent in the show is ''so horrible''. Veronica's mother is a borderline EvilMatriarch who is slowly drawing Veronica into the family's criminal activities, but she still manages to be the second best parent on the show simply by virtue of [[AbusiveParents not actually being abusive]].



* Davan's parents, Fred and Faye, in ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'', more or less fit the trope.

* ''Webcomic/DumbingOfAge'': As demonstrated on Parents' Weekend, all the parents are manipulative, controlling, embarrassing, and in some cases actively abusive. There are, however, two exceptions:
** Dorothy's parents raised her areligiously in order to give her the maximum amount of choice, are very proud of her ambitions to become president but insist they would be supportive even if she aimed lower, and are unfailingly kind to her boyfriend because they can tell she loves him.
** Dina's parents are as quiet and as socially awkward as she is and accidentally let Amber's abusive dad into the dorm since they don't know any better, but they want nothing more than for their daughter to be happy. When Dina tells them that she [[spoiler:has a girlfriend]], their response is to simply wire her some money for a nice date.

** Davos Seaworth is also a good father to his own children and to the children he acts as second father figure to. He loves Stannis Baratheon's daughter Shireen like his own daughter and later, likewise acts in a [[TeamDad fatherly role]] for Jon Snow [[spoiler:whose father is now dead]] and Gendry, who never knew his father. This trope is discussed for tragedy InUniverse with Salladhor Saan after the death of Davos's son Mathos.

* ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' has Alan and Amy, Cory's parents. Not only are they happily married and good parents to their three (and later four) biological kids, they also are surrogate parents to Shawn and Topanga, to the point where [[PapaWolf Alan]] risks a lawsuit by physically attacking a cult leader who brainwashes Shawn.

* ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' had this with Sophia, who was both the literal mother to Dorothy, and a mother-figure to Blanche and Rose. Dorothy and Rose were also shown to be good parents, as were Stan and Miles (their ex-husband and beau, respectively). Blanche, however, [[HandsOffParenting averted this.]]
