* Tide detergent made a commercial entitled "Dad Mom", featuring this sort of character in an attempt to be egalitarian in their praise of anyone who stays at home and takes care of the kids and family. While their intentions were laudable, the commercials dipped deep into the offensive stereotypes regarding House Husbands. The resultant InternetBacklash from real House Husbands caused tide to pull the commercial from circulation within weeks. Its to their credit that Tide made some of the comments and emails they received public.

* Brock from {{Anime/Pokemon}}. This was a result of his PromotedToParent status when his mom vanished and later his dad does. He does do quite a good job of taking care of his many younger siblings and was able to list them to his father Flint who returned (Brock's mom returned while Brock was in Johto). He even lampshaded that Ash and Misty can't travel well or eat properly without him.

* ''Manga/LoveLucky'': Fuuta might as well become one. Kirari even suggests he could quit his job since she has enough money for the two of them to live without his income. (He's shocked when she showed him the digits) However, he refuses because he feels he'd be her gigolo if he agreed. Considering she only wants him to quit so she could enjoy her days off [[ALlWomenAreLustful in a more lustful way]]... As he leaves for work, she decides to use her day off to do housework only to find out everything is already done, leaving her feeling like a failure of a wife. Fuuta feels he was too rude with his words and tells her he won't quit so she'll see him as a reliable adult.
** [[spoiler:In the end, after they no longer have to keep their marriage a secret, they realize they still won't have much time together while the both of them have jobs. Since there are things Kirari still wanted to do as an idol, Fuuta ends up becoming a HouseHusband]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/ThePrincessAndTheFrog'', Tiana's father cooked for his family (and the neighborhood in general) and was very involved with raising his daughter. This was despite the fact he would do double or even triple shifts at work yet he never let his exhaustion get in the way of what mattered. His love and devotion to his family was later used as a sign of how successful his life was, rather than whether or not he achieved his dream of running a restaurant.

* Yuuya from ''Manga/{{Nukoduke}}'' isn't married, but he's so good at doing housework that his adopted kids/pets see him as their mother and tried to get him a mother's day gift.

-->''"Hi. I'm a dad. Not a "dadmom", just a dad. And I can do anything this asshole can do because I'm a fucking dad, not because I'm somehow also a "mom." I don't have to qualify it by turning myself into an offensive cartoon version of what a caring father is. Your commercial is insulting to all fathers out there who stay at home and take care of their family. I'm not a "dadmom." I'm just a dad. Because dad's already know how to do this shit without being stereotypes."''
