* ''Fanfic/TheOutside'' has Ragyo and, to a lesser extent, Satsuki (who's an older sister). Ragyo really cares about her daughters but, due to Satsuki's poor health, she coddled her a bit too much to the point of being doting and overprotective, leaving after a fight with her husband, which, after her husband's death, left her daughters to fend for themselves while she was unaware (until much later), while Satsuki genuinely cares for Ryuuko, it's made clear that she has a slew of issues that hasn't left her able to care for herself properly, let alone her sister.

** Steven's MissingMom is a PosthumousCharacter, and while she initially seems like an ideal example of DeceasedParentsAreTheBest, she falls under this trope the more we learn about her, with Steven struggling with her imperfect decisions.

* Both ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' and Jane's parents are portrayed as people who have good hearts but whose self interests and issues, be they with work, emotional needs, or personal concerns, tend to vastly overshadow their interest in their own children. Daria's mom Helen is a huge {{Workaholic}}, her dad Jake is a clownish ManChild, and Jane's parents Vincent and Amanda... [[HandsOffParenting well...]]

* Both Parents on ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'' tend to be this way. Helen is a {{Workaholic}} and Jane's Jake is a ManChild who can't seem to move on from his own HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood, but both clearly care for [[TheSnarkKnight Daria]] and [[LovableLibby Quinn]]. [[CoolLoser Jane]]'s HippieParents are firm believers in HandsOffParenting, thinking that this is nurturing their kids' individuality, but don't seem to realize how dysfunctional her siblings are as a result. [[ExtracurricularEnthusiast Jodie]]'s parents are portrayed as people who have good hearts both {{Education Mama}}s, but whose self interests and issues, be the GrandFinale shows that they with work, emotional needs, or personal concerns, tend are willing to vastly overshadow their interest in their own children.

* ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'': Atlas is pretty much as you'd expect [[CaptainErsatz classic Superman]] [[TheCape to be as a father]]: Somewhat bumbling, well-intentioned and eager to show his superpowered son [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatResponsibility how to take part in the 'family business']], but also [[WhenYouComingHomeDad chronically busy saving the world]] and somewhat uncomprehending of the fact that his son is a slight ShrinkingViolet who'd prefer to become a musician. That said, he's ''way'' better than [[ParentalNeglect Tyler's parents]]

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}} has Ichigo's father Isshin and Uryuu's father Ryuuken. On one hand Isshin seems to be a ditzy doctor that constantly embarrasses his three kids while also keeping many, '''many''' secrets from them ([[spoiler: like him being a powerful Shinigami]]), whereas Ryuuken's relationship with Uryuu became strained after the death of Ryuuken's father Souken [[spoiler: and ''especially'' the demise of Uryuu's mother Kanae]]). Both are aware of their parental failures and not exactly happy about it.

** Meena's family are shown to be loving and supportive of her but their attempts to encourage and push her to pursue a singing career has the unfortunate effect of putting a lot of pressure of the already shy Meena. This is especially noticable with her grandfather, who is one of Meena's biggest supporters but is pretty abrasive when it comes to her stage fright.
** Rosita loves her husband and 25 children with all her heart, but she feels consumed with taking care of them and wants to re-ignite her dream of being a star. That's the reason why she joins the singing contest in the first place.
** Her husband, Norman, loves his wife and children very much and always takes the time to compliment them. However, he is a {{Workaholic}} who works a 12-14 hours a day in order to support the family, and is often fatigued and distracted as a result.

* "Literature/TheVeldt": George and Lydia are a loving couple who care deeply about each other and their kids, but who unintentionally neglect them since the robot house does an inhumanly perfect job of looking after them than they do. To their credit, they realize this and resolve to fix things.

** The entire first generation of ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates''. Because birth control was harder to come by in those days ''and'' several of the First Generations are either BlueBlood or members of a LegacyOfService (so [[BabiesMakeEverythingBetter they're in desperate need of heirs]]), any couple married during the war produced a child or two and in order to protect those children, [[spoiler: their parents had to send them to the Deeprealms. They visit the kids but not too frequently as they keep fighting, so they eventually ''do'' reunite with their children (whose ages range from pre-teens to older teenagers, as the Deeprealms have different time flows) for real, the parents are aware that maybe sending them away wasn't the perfect choice due to some of the kids having abandonment issues or being pissed. The resulting support conversations delve into the troubled relationships and ultimately prove that even if circumstances weren't ideal, the parents do very much care about their children and want to keep them safe above all else. And in the end, the kids do recognize that they're loved even if their parents aren't perfect.]]
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'', [[spoiler: Emperor Rudolf truly wanted the best for his son Albine/Alm and his nephew/adoptive son Berkut. Problem is, he had a huge ZeroApprovalGambit to play for the sake of the Valentian continent as a whole, so he first sent a pretty much newborn Alm away and made sure that he wouldn't learn the truth of his origins, then some time later adopted a young Berkut as his heir ''without'' telling him about Alm or his plans. While Alm was more or less fine thanks to being raised by Rudolf's advisor Mycen, Berkut's already present obsession with strength (as he had already taught by his now dead parents) became ''even stronger'', and this would bite ''everyone'' in the ass later.]]
