* ''Literature/{{Cinderella}}.'' Not from the stepmother--that's outright abuse; from her father. While he suffers DeathByAdaptation in just about every version, both the Creator/CharlesPerrault and Creator/TheBrothersGrimm versions make it clear that he's alive. In fact, in the latter he actually introduces Cinderella to the prince as the kitchen-maid, ''not'' his daughter.

%% * The ''Literature/WolvesOfMercyFallsSeries'' shows examples of this with every single main character. Grace is the most obvious case, and her mother has a {{FreudianExcuse}} for it, but Isobel openly criticises her parents for ignoring her. Sam's parents, though mainly in the {{AbusiveParents}} category, are also neglectful of him after he becomes a werewolf. It's also hinted that Cole's father, before Cole is seen to be taking after him, was ambivalent towards him. This is subverted with Olivia's family, who demonstrably care about her going missing.

* The Emperor of Mankind's neglect of his sons, the Primarchs, from TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 definitely counts. This resulted in the largest, bloodiest war the galaxy had ever seen.

* The Emperor of Mankind's neglect of his sons, the Primarchs, from TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 definitely counts. This resulted in the largest, bloodiest war the galaxy had ever seen. Most of them had better relationships with their adoptive parents than the Emperor. Part of the reason is the Primarchs come from very different culture and other other part is the Emperor is '''''[[TimeAbyss old]]'''''. And because of that he no longer has the same concept of time or relationships as everyone else. For example, The Emperor tells his religious zealot of son Lorgar Aurelian to cease his worship of his father as a god. To The Emperor, once should have been enough. To Lorgar, his most holy Father had told him ''once'' in a hundred years. What the Emperor did after, while well meaning, didn't help Lorgar in the slightest.

In fiction, we have parents who [[GoodParents are nice and kindly]] to the protagonists. Then we have those who are [[AbusiveParents downright bastards]] to the kids. Sometimes, [[ParentalAbandonment they're not there at all]]. Other times [[ParentsAsPeople they try to be there but it doesn't always work.]] And, finally, we have the parents who are there, but for the most part, don't seem at all interested in their child.

This can be set up for an FreudianExcuse. Also an excuse for kids who go off to [[SavingTheWorld save the world]] not worry too much about their parents, seeing as they don't give two cents about what they're doing anyway. It should be noted that neglect is in no way a less extreme form of [[AbusiveParents abuse]] than the forms on the AbusiveParents page; extreme neglect in the care of infants has been known to put dampers on mental and cognitive development, and in children it can induce severe psychological damage.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Yukio felt neglected by his parents because he was a silent child locked in his own fantasies. His parents were deeply disappointed that he wasn't the child they'd imagined having. In revenge, he decided to [[SelfMadeOrphan drive his parents to suicide]]. He acts proud of this achievement and that he loved doing what he did, but when Hitsugaya digs a little deeper, Yukio's battered psyche explodes in anger and pain.

*** And certainly Homer's parents for different reasons: Mona was too busy chaining herself to things in protest, and Abe was just not particularly emotionally invested in Homer.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', Goku is usually away from his family because he's either dead or off training. On the upside, Goku has a very loving and respectful relationship with his own sons and granddaughter, despite missing something like nineteen years of Gohan's life, seventeen of Goten's, and ten of Pan's, due to training or being dead. Gohan himself doesn't seem too disturbed by his daughter going off into space, either, although he and his wife Videl are seen worrying about her when she's getting into fights.
