* Max Tennyson of ''Franchise/{{Ben 10}}'' also subverts the trope. He knows full well what Ben is up to, and encourages Ben to be responsible about "going hero." Ben still gets away with audacious stuff, though, that would get a normal kid spanked or grounded.

-->'''Jake:''' ''(runs downstairs wearing a coat [[PajamaCladHero over his pajamas]])'' Grandpa! I'm going to the North Pole to find Grandma!
-->'''Grandpa:''' ''(calmly)'' Alright; thanks for telling me.

* Timmy's Pappy on ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddparents'' subverts the trope. He cheerfully goes along when Timmy, Cosmo and Wanda drag him into an "old timey cartoon". Timmy gets through it safely thanks to Pappy and the fairies, but when Pappy describes it later, Mom and Dad decide he's senile and hallucinating.
