* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' has Toph who adopted this parenting strategy, partly in response to her own upbringing and partly due to a demanding career. Unfortunately, she went too far in that direction leading to a myriad of issues in her children. Lin assumed responsibility from a very young age (as a teenager she was Suyin's father figure essentially) while Suyin rebelled and fell in with the Triads. Her children ended up estranged for over 30 years until they finally reconciled.

* [=MudWings=] in ''Literature/WingsOfFire'' don't raise their dragonets. They mate in groups, so [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe almost no dragons know who sired their kids]], and then they leave their eggs alone. The first hatchling has a natural BigBrotherInstinct. The siblings work together as a SiblingTeam with their "[=BigWing=]" sibling as their leader. Clay, who was raised in a cave until he was almost an adult, is very disappointed. He always dreamed of coming back to a family who missed him. While, it turns out that Clay is a [=BigWing=] himself, he had hoped to find his parents. When he meets his mother, she barely takes note of him.

By her logic, [[spoiler:he wasn't needed since she had six backup eggs anyway]].

* ''Manga/SkipBeat'' -- It's implied that the super-serious Kanae "Moko" Kotonami is the product of such a style of parenting, leaving her as the de facto adult at her home... despite the fact that she has at least two older, married siblings, if only because they are repeating the same hand off style with their respective families.

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'': Jiraiya takes this to the point of ParentalAbandonment in regards to his godson Naruto where it was all but said that Jiraiya never even ''met'' the kid for the first thirteen years of his life.
** A good part of Naruto surviving his childhood was due to Iruka, who somehow managed to be Naruto's actual adoptive parent despite only being about ten years older.

** In Henry VIII's case it wasn't so much hands off as remote control. Henry didn't spend much time with his children but he was a micro-manager of their household regulations, especially those of Prince Edward.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona5}}: No clear reason is given for why the parents of the protagonist in this game so easily gave up their son for him to serve his probation in Tokyo instead of wherever he lived before [[spoiler: being set up to take the rap for a sexual assault by the same big-shot politician the protagonist fought off to protect an innocent woman]].

** Matter of fact, this applies to most of the parents of the Phantom Thieves. Ann's parents are famous fashion designers who are never around, Ryuji's stepfather is abusive, but his mother is decent, and he loves her very much; Futaba's guardian, while caring very much about her, has no idea how to help her deal with her {{Hikikomori}} issues and so just leaves food outside her bedroom door, and Haru's father is very much aloof and overly focused on running their family's fast-food conglomerate.

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona4}}'': The Protagonist's uncle doesn't take a great interest in what his nephew does outside of school as long as it doesn't put him in the path of his investigation into the odd serial murders that cropped up recently.
** It's not entirely clear either why the Protagonist's parents sent him to live with his uncle for a year outside of just working abroad.
