* 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. He does have a {{heterosexual life partner|s}} whom he makes food for, and a flashback showed that he usually cooks for his girlfriend instead of the other way around.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
-->''"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."''

* In Franchise/TheSims, a male character with a family-based aspiration works very well as one of these. And as the Sims world is a largely genderless utopia of acceptance, no one finds it in any way strange.
** The Sims 3 plays straight and averts this trope with pre-made Dustin Langerek, who, though a stay at home dad, is less than focused on the housework.
* Stahl and Gaius from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' show traits of this. Stahl is a very sweet guy who takes care of everyone's needs and a skilled potion/medicine maker, while Gaius is quite skilled at needlework, jewelry making and ''specially'' [[SupremeChef cooking]] - his speciality being [[SweetTooth sweets of all kinds.]]
* Some of the male potential spouses in ''StardewValley'' could be considered this, as your spouse will help out around the farm (feed the animals, water the crops, mend fences, cook breakfast) which often contrasts their old life, and a few of them outright give up things they loved. (Sam stops playing music, and Sebastian gets rid of his motorcycle because it's too dangerous now that he is a proper family man.) However, these are strictly their own decisions and they only do it because they love you (unhappy spouses mope instead), and others, like Harvey, can still find time for their own lives. (In contrast, Abigail will finally have the chance to realize her dream of becoming a monster slayer, and may randomly give you monster drops from her latest adventure.)
