* Austrian Empress UsefulNotes/MariaTheresa is described as such by history, media and TheOtherWiki. She ''was'' affectionate to them (showing some favoritism towards her fifth child Maria Christina, both for being born in Maria Theresa's 25th birthday ''and'' for [[TheOjou being classy, talented and cute]]), but also used them as pawns via {{Arranged Marriage}}s like pretty much every Habsburg and non-Habsburg monarch; she wrote to them frequently to keep close contact with each son or daughter, while not being above of trying to use her motherly authority to influence their lives. And you know how… ''[[SarcasmMode well]]'' that worked [[MarieAntoinette in a certain case.]]

* The Potters in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9976928/32/The-Bloody-Ashikabi The Bloody Ashikabi]]'' never checked once on their eldest child after abandoning him with [[AbusiveParents the Dursleys]] and outright became estranged from their daughter Ivy when she was sorted in Slytherin. However, they [[WhatTheHellHero call out Dumbledore]] for entrusting Harry to a magic-hating couple when his abused past comes to light and when Ivy is almost raped at Hogwarts, [[PapaWolf James Potter refuses to be placated by Dumbledore's decision to lightly punish the culprits and announces he will go to the Aurors and the Board of Governors]]. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Oh, and if Dumbledore isn't happy with it, James will take his children out of the school and let the old man explain WHY one of Britain's most respected families decided to quit]].

** Turns out his father is also somewhat like this, though not much is known due to being a LastEpisodeNewCharacter, but what is known is that he actually tried to instill discipline into Yusuke, i.e. spanked him, but it only led to fights between him and Atsuko resulting in their divorce. Both are also AmicableExes who tend to have one night stands on occasion but realize it's too late to get back together.

* King Viktor in ''Manga/TheRoyalTutor'' genuinely loves his children but his duties as king often causes him to spend far less time with them than he would like. There are also times when he has to act harsh and stern to the younger princes as their king instead of their father because they are potential king candidates that he knows are not ready yet to be king.

** 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 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 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 raised 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 taught by his parents became ''even stronger'', and this would bite ''everyone'' in the ass later.]]

* Jobe in the WhateleyUniverse has parents like this. His parents are still together, but his father is a megalomaniacal supervillain who now runs his own country, and his mother is TheDitz. They seem proud of the fact that they have managed to raise a sociopath. The biggest area of friction before this year was that Jobe prefers bio-devising while his father is a robots-and-power-armor kind of inventor.
