She and her father rarely talk, she rarely has any free time whatsoever, she carries the burden of guilt for [[spoiler: her grandfather's creation of the Shadow threat]], and her sheltered upbringing means she's [[FishOutOfWater often lost in everyday situations others take for granted]]. It's no wonder she [[HeroicBSOD collapses]] after [[spoiler: her father is murdered by Ikutsuki]].

** Haru Okumura from ''VideoGame/Persona5'' lives in a GildedCage where her father dictates her life down to the letter, and she has trouble trusting others because she realizes that many people are only interested in her for her family's wealth. As such, she's seen as something of an eccentric loner at school.

* Defied in ''{{Literature/Dune}}. Paul's official biographer points out that a lot of people assume Paul was this. Said biographer points out that while Paul had no friends of the same age because of the security risks involved, he had close and warm relationships with his tutors Thufir Hawat, Duncan Idaho and Gurney Halleck. It is also clearly shown that while Leto and Jessica were not as present as they could have been, they were very much loving and supportive parents

* Lila Fowler of the ''SweetValleyHigh'' series is normally proud of her status as the richest girl in town and unafraid to flaunt how awesome and cool she is, but she's had her moments of crying over how she hardly ever sees her busy, emotionally distant father and has a MissingMom and being envious of the Wakefield twins for having the perfect family. [[CharacterDevelopment She got better]] when her mom and dad remarried later in the series.
