* ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'':
** This is an important part of Fate's characterization from ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikers StrikerS]]'' onward. Despite her desire to be the best mother possible for her adopted children, her position as an [[SpacePolice enforcer]] means that she's often away on missions for long stretches of time (which is part of the reason why Erio and Caro never lived with her). Vivio even teases her about it in ''[[Manga/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaVivid ViVid]]''.
** The movie adaptation of the first season shows that Precia was also like this prior to her descent into insanity.

** Averted in the same show by Kim's parents. Her mother is a brain surgeon and her father is a rocket scientist, so it's pretty understandable that they have a lot going on in their lives. Even so, they are genuinely affectionate parents who take great pride in their children and involve themselves in their lives as much as they can.
*** They take Kim's heroics pretty well in stride (admonishing her to be home by dinner when she's stepping out to thwart Dr. Dementor, that sort of thing). They even get in on the day-saving occasionally. Kim's father actually manages to essentially take down Dr. Drakken by ''humiliating him.'' It turns out, much to everyone's surprise, that Kim's archnemesis used to be her father's college roommate. The blue skin is new, but, yup, that's Drew Lipski all right.

* An obscure example in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'' is Ida Lennox. She's an engineering genius who vastly prefers designing space stations and colonies to interacting with people, has an (admittedly deserved) ego, and admits to switching men out every once and a while. Her performance as a parent is described by WordOfGod as being a hands off affair, allowing the child to find their won way, to the point where there's only a single line of dialogue mentioning she's a parent. [[spoiler: The line in question comes from her son: Jack.]]

* In ''Manga/DeathNote'', Teru Mikami's mother cares for her son, and when he gets himself beaten up while trying to protect others from bullies, she tells him that he should not try to take on the impossible task of protecting everyone. While the third person omniscient narrator for his flashbacks in the manga supports that she said what she did for his sake, Teru himself narrates in the anime that his mother was not just, and sees her death along with several bullies as proof of a god that punishes evildoers.

** Steven's father Greg is a very loving, supportive, and open minded parent who dotes on his son as much as he can. However, due to him almost always working just to support him financially and Steven's constant training to become a Crystal Gem, they don't always see each other as much as they want. It even becomes a plot point in one episode [[Spoiler: where Greg fakes an injury just so they can spend more time together.]]

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' is one of the most radical examples of this trope. The parents aren't just people, they're full-fledged main characters. All of the mothers got some great development, and the fathers have quite a bit as well. (Except Hideyoshi, who despite being really nice we don't know much about, [[EnsembleDarkhorse to the disappointment of the fanbase]].) They also have one of the [[BigScrewedUpFamily Biggest, Most Screwed Up Families]] you're ever going to meet.
