** [[spoiler:The epilogue shows Naruto as Hokage, which strains his time with his family. When his and Hinata's son Bolt starts acting out in order to get his attention (very much how Naruto was at the start of the series), Naruto tells him that his job means he can't be his dad all the time, so he must learn to endure it, because he's a ninja as well. He is also shown to try and balance his time better after this, though it is clear that this is a hard balance to make.]]

* Jack and Maddie on ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' are sometimes more obsessed with their latest ghost-hunting activities to pay attention to their children--like, for example, to notice their son is ''the half-ghost kid they're hunting.'' Their older daughter Jasmine actually [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] this, though her diagnosis is a bit of an exaggeration---when not distracted they can show plenty of interest in their kids, often to the point of clinginess.

** on the other hand, Conan's situation seems to have been at least a mild Reality Check for them: his mother turns up fairly frequently to help in various schemes with her disguise skills (and Conan doesn't seem to have any doubt that she'll come when he calls for aid), and in at least one mini-arc his father was lurking as back-up the whole time. They also came up with a convoluted scheme (which was kind of stupid and deserved to fail) in the early stages of the manga, to try and convince Conan that he's in over his head, and to come with them to the US so that the three of them could try and unravel things together. It's implied that Professor Agasa reports to them regularly to keep them up to date.
* ''LightNovel/AccelWorld'' : this describes the parents of ''nearly everyone in the Accelerated World''. One of the requirements is that the player has had a Neurolinker since shortly after birth; the most common reason for that is as an [[ParentalNeglect advanced baby monitor]], so that the [[ParentalAbandonment parents don't have to spend much actual time with the baby]] - Kuroyukihime hypothesizes this is pretty much the core trauma for almost all Burst Linkers. In fact, it's one of the reasons that Burst Linkers are so passionate about the game; they're usually closer to the TrueCompanions and FoundFamily they have in the game to the people they live with in real life. To be more specific: Takumi's parents ignored his being bullied, and put so much pressure on him to succeed that he's now a StepfordSmiler with a major inferiority complex teamed with a Martyr compulsion. Kuroyukihime is living by herself while in ''middle school'' [[spoiler: not to mention the TraumaCongaLine with her elder sister and Burst Link Parent, who it's implied is a MadScientist sociopath during the Chrome Disaster arc - and their parents haven't noticed]], and has been for roughly a year when the story opens. Haruyuki himself never mentions his father; he doesn't seem to have even been in contact with him since his parent's divorce, and has some kind of trauma from that time frame that he seems to have repressed the memory of (it's hinted in one of the 'extra' episodes of the anime that this is at least partially responsible for his weight issues). Because his mother works for an international bank, he only sees her for about five minutes every morning when she's half-asleep (one of the reasons his apartment seems to be the main Team Gathering point for their Guild). The only reason he hasn't gone completely off the rails by the time the story starts is Chiyuri's parents, who "raised them like twins" until fairly recently (Chiyu's mother caters for pretty much every Guild meeting because she's so glad Haru has so many friends now, and Chiyu's always urging Haru to come by and visit with her parents). This trope is averted in the case of Chiyu herself, who is the only confirmed exception to this hands-off parenting rule - she was given a neurolinker shortly after birth because her father had damaged vocal chords from cancer, and the Neurolinker was the only way she could hear her father's voice.

* ''Manga/DetectiveConan'':
** On one hand, Kogoro Mouri is an irresponsible gambler who spends much of his time drinking, while his teenage daughter Ran takes care of most of the housework. Plus he also has a tendency to yell at Ran and Conan and, in the latter's case, sometimes give smacks to the head for getting in the way. However, when either of them is in ''real'' danger, [[ActionDad he risks his life and limb for them]], and is strongly implied [[SadClown to actually be very depressed and self-deprecating]] under his borderline ManChild facade.
** While both of Shinichi's parents love their son, they've been rather irresponsible regarding him. They have no qualms about leaving their teenage boy to look after himself for years on end, while they work together in America. Shinichi himself loves his parents and is clearly inspired by his father's detective skills, but is well aware that they're far too irresponsible to be proper parents and thus feels no guilt about doing things like telling his dad's editor where he's hiding while skipping deadlines, or using their credit cards to pay for expensive dinners. The fact that ''Kogoro'' is shown in flashbacks to not be happy with the Kudos' FreeRangeChildren tendences says a lot.

** Hester Crane, Martin's wife and Frasier and Niles's mother, gets this somewhat less because she's deceased by the events of the series and all three choose to abide by NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead. Nevertheless, while she was a loving mother and wife to her family, she had feet of clay as well; she had a brief affair at one point, her overly clinical and psychological method of parenting appears to have directly resulted in a lot of Frasier and Niles's neuroses, and she appears to have been actively hostile to a lot of the women her sons chose to date.

* Martin Crane in ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' is a down-to-earth, likeable and friendly guy, especially when compared with his uptight, snobby sons, so it's easy to see why people tend to get on better with him and take his side in the tension he has with Frasier and Niles. But it's made pretty clear, and Martin himself at times concedes, that he has as much if not more responsibility as they do for the difficult relationship he has with them. While he clearly does love them, he appears to have been a rather distant parent who was largely uninterested in the more esoteric and refined interests of his sons and didn't make a lot of effort to bond with them, tends to take other people's sides in arguments against them (including bullies) and appears to have spent more time at his favourite bar than bonding with them, something he later comes to regret.
-->'''Martin:''' Maybe if I'd spent less time at Duke's and more time with you guys I wouldn't be sitting opposite a son who places so much stock in one beer.

* [[spoiler: King Rhoam]] in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' was a stern and harsh parent towards their child [[spoiler: Zelda]], admonishing them for not being able to [[spoiler: awaken the divine power of Hylia]] and forbidding their child from pursuing their interests and studies. They had good intentions but their methods only made things worse and it was after [[spoiler: his death, Zelda sacrificing herself to seal Calamity Ganon and the fall of Hyrule]] that they realized their mistake.
