* The parents in ''{{Tommy}}'' take the cake for leaving their deaf, dumb and blind son with his abusive cousin and, later, with a drunk child molester. There's also that moment where they attempt to "cure" him by paying a gypsy to feed him acidů

** Hiashi Hyuga was the first example shown in the series. Cold and distant to his firstborn, rather than provide her with needed emotional support and stability, he basically discarded Hinata by sending her to the Ninja Academy, using wording along the lines of "The Hyuga Clan doesn't need someone like her"... [[KickTheDog while she was listening]]. While he did wise up after Neji beat Naruto publicly and the clan's dirty laundry with the Cage Bird Seal was aired to everyone, before getting to that point, he had also been indirectly responsible for his nephew Neji nearly killing Hinata in the preliminary matches, by hiding his brother's letter to his son that explained why he sacrificed his life to save Hiashi, for ''nine years'', because he couldn't deal with his own grief, which allowed the hatred of his nephew to fester until [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he took it all out on Hinata]]. And we are only ''told'' things got better in the clan. We have never been shown Hiashi apologizing to his daughter for nearly getting her killed because of his neglect. However, he did allow Hinata to participate in the Fourth Shinobi War and he did not stop her in helping him and Neji protect Naruto during the fight against [[spoiler:Obito and Madara]]. So while he's not the monster often shown in fanfics, Hiashi could never be considered a good father figure at all.

** Naruto himself is unintentionally running headlong into this territory in ''Manga/NarutoGaiden'', with his work preventing him from spending as much time as he'd like with his children, especially his son, Boruto, who acts out in the same way Naruto did when he was young. It doesn't help that he seems to think being Hokage means taking on every burden himself and the villagers are indulging him possibly to make up for mistreating him as a child.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', Yukari's mother, after the death of her husband and Yukari's father, was emotionally broken to the point at which she started throwing herself into shallow relationships with men and hardly ever seeing her daughter. Later on in Yukari's Social Link, Yukari's mother sees the error of her ways, and Yukari herself begins to understand what it means to lose someone you love, so Yukari, albeit hesitantly, decides to start the process of reconciliation with her mother.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'', Ryotaro Dojima (the protagonist's uncle and guardian) is an example of this to his daughter, Nanako. Unlike most examples, the reasons for this are explored and Dojima is portrayed as a good guy who just doesn't know how to be a parent. Specifically, his wife was killed in a hit-and-run accident, and he's been a workaholic ever since, trying to solve the case while simultaneously running from his daughter because he's afraid of failing her. Fortunately, it's possible for the player to help repair this broken family.
