* ''Series/TheATeam'': Face was raised in an orphanage after losing his mother at a young age. (His father had already disappeared.) While he was a bit upset that he never had a real family growing up, every time he reminisces about the orphanage it's a happy memory. We even get to meet a couple of the nuns who raised him in one episode and the kids under their care look fine.

* ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'' - Wolfwood grew up in one of these.
** Which is ironic since it is a TykeBomb group.

* In ''Anime/CombattlerV'', [[TheHero Hyouma Aoi]] was raised in one that was run by a kindly nun. It certainly explains how ''badly'' he takes [[BigBrotherInstinct seeing children in risk.]]



* [[spoiler: Hanako Ikezawa]] from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' lived there until she came to Yamaku. There's somewhat of a subversion, though: [[spoiler: while the staff treated Hanako kindly, she was kind of a ParentalSubstitute for the youngest children in her last days there ''and'' she got to enjoy the place's small library, she still couldn't make friends, and it didn't keep her from being bullied ''outside'' of it in her middle school years.]]

* The Children's Home in Warsaw run by Janusz Korczak appears to have been this. The children had their own court, they were treated fairly, and the two heads worried themselves silly if a child refused to eat. Despite offers from virtually ''everyone'' (Jewish Council, Polish Resistance, German Police) to keep him safe, director Korczak went with the 192 survivors to Treblinka extermination camp.

The children had their own court, they were treated fairly, and the two heads worried themselves silly if a child refused to eat. The director even sacrificed his own safety to go with the children when they were shipped off to be murdered in a concentration camp, despite offers from friends to hide and shelter him. (Of course, they didn't have room for 100 children, so he made his choice.)

* While it was pretty dickish of Franchise/{{Superman}} to put his cousin {{Supergirl}} in an orphanage after her arrival in the ''SilverAge'', at least he cared enough to make sure it was a really nice one.

* In the {{New52}} reboot of Franchise/{{Batman}}, the ultimate [[Comicbook/NightOfTheOwls Talon]] [[spoiler:Bruce Wayne's ''brother'' Thomas Wayne Junior]] was seriously injured in his youth and sent to a prominent children's hospital [[spoiler:by his parents Thomas and Martha Wayne]] to recover in secret. Thanks to the Waynes' funding, the hospital fit this trope. Sadly, when they were killed the funding dried up and the hospital became an OrphanageOfFear. Talon wants revenge on Bruce [[spoiler:for their parents' deaths which lead directly to his life becoming a living hell.]] At least, [[UnreliableNarrator that's his story]], Batman points out several flaws in it, but never learns the truth either way.

How amazing it is is lampshaded when three of the girls [[TheRunaway run away]] and get [[WhatTheHellHero called out]] for leaving such a positive place to live on the streets.

* [[TheHero Rosette]] and [[IllBoy Joshua]] Christopher from ''VideoGame/ChronoCrusade'' grew up in an OrphanageOfLove named Seventh Bell after their parent's deaths. It's very understaffed (seeming to only have a single aging woman named Ms. Jean watching the kids) so the orphans seem to end up doing a lot of the chores, but they're well taken care of and seem to be spoiled rotten. It seemed like the ideal place for them to live, until [[ComesGreatInsanity Joshua went insane]] [[DealWithTheDevil when he put a pair of demon's horns on his head]], [[WhereIWasBornAndRazed destroyed the orphanage]] and [[TakenForGranite froze all of the orphans and Ms. Jean in stone]].
