accord. The reverse form is the MissingChild, but there can be interesting crossover: the child may seem to go missing because of the abandonment of/distance created by their parents, and the parents either don't notice or get concerned and finally realize they love their offspring.

It also allows for the OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent to be revealed as a super-powered demon fighter, or intergalactic being without the need for a messy {{Retcon}} answering [[FridgeLogic the question an alert viewer would ask]] about why the parents didn't know about this. It's simply a case of the child following in their parent's SecretLegacy.

In animation, cases of ''parentis abscentia'' can be caused by budgeting; it's cheaper to animate one character (usually Dad) than to have two characters basically doing the same thing.

When the parents had to separate from the child in order to protect it, this results in MosesInTheBullrushes. When the parents had to leave the child in order to give it "a better life", then it leads to GiveHimANormalLife.

Of course, if you go back far enough, you'll reach a time when most young adults in RealLife actually were orphaned or abandoned. Adults died younger than than they do now, and people with chronic illnesses like schizophrenia or tuberculosis were often sent away from the family to recover or die. It was also easier to abandon a family, given the poor communications of the times and the lack of a police force. Because of all this, it's quite common for a fictional character from the 19th century or earlier to mention being orphaned with no more emotional reaction than a shrug, since the experience was considered a normal part of real life. A good example is Jane Austen's ''Literature/{{Emma}}'', where the title character's mother died years earlier, but is barely mentioned.

In families with servants, this can lead to the OldRetainer acting as a ParentalSubstitute. If they were traveling abroad when both parents died, the child may be RaisedByNatives. If the parents die in the wilds, their surviving child may be RaisedByWolves. It is also possible the parents left them out there to die, expecting them to be a meal, not a adoptee.
