* ''Manga/AsuNoYoichi'': The eponymous character spent his entire life on a mountain with his dad and no other human contact so far as we know. He goes around town and to school in samurai clothes complete with a wooden sword, but he's pretty decent at talking to women, notwithstanding the two elder sisters' opinions or his misfortune at being the protagonist of a HaremComedy.

* Alexis in ''Series/{{Castle}}'' was raised primarily by her single father who has sole custody. She is emotionally stable and intelligent. Though this is partially averted by the fact that her grandmother was also around for the majority of her life.

Often comes with the UnfortunateImplication that, [[CloserToEarth in the absence of women]], men cannot competently raise children, especially babies and little girls. Can set up a DoubleStandard for RealLife {{House Husband}}s and single dads, not to mention gay people. Compare and contrast to MaternallyChallenged, which focuses on female incompetence when it comes to raising children.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''' titular Harry Dresden has almost no maternal figures in his life. His mother died shortly after he was born. He was raised in succession by his [[GoodParents father]], [[EvilMentor Justin DuMorne]] and [[TheObiWan Ebeneezer McCoy]]. The exception is his [[TheFairFolk fairy godmother]] who rightfully terrifies him. Some of his character quirks such as his [[GoodOldWays old-fashioned chivalry]] can be partially attributed to this upbringing. He lacks the typical awkwardness around women due to meeting his FirstLove rather young in a fellow student of [[EvilSorceror DuMorne]].

* Kyo from ''GirlGotGame'' was raised by her basketball-obsessed father, resulting in her GenderBlenderName, tomboyish ways, and (much to her chagrin)[[FeminineWomenCanCook complete lack of cooking skills]], in addition to her SweetPollyOliver disguise. Her attempts to fem-up for Chiharu after he learns her secret are both sad and hilarious.
* Misaki from ''IceRevolution'' has a Karate obsessed father and three older brothers. No wonder she's become such a tomboy.
* Ryo in ''{{Otomen}}'' is raised by a police officer and martial arts expert father who doesn't like girly things a lot leading to her becoming a tomboy, spicy food loving, GenkiGirl as a counterpoint to the lead character Asuka who is male (and a kendo expert) but very feminine. [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy Naturally they are an item]]. Ryo's grandfather who also helped raise her is very similarly masculine but actually has a secret girly streak just like her boyfriend.

* Motoko from ''{{Change 123}}'' was raised by her three dads after her mother died. Although they are explicitly mentioned to be kind and caring, they insisted on training her in their respective combat mastery (karate, jujitsu, and swords/firearms). The resultant TrainingFromHell caused her to develop three additional personalities just to cope. Motoko (the "main" personality) is fairly feminine and well-adjusted, while the other three range from tomboyish to borderline AxCrazy.

* Sanji of OnePiece was raised primarily by men who taught him to cook and fight. Which makes his obsession with women a bit more...understandable.

He goes around town and to school in samurai clothes complete with a wooden sword, but he's pretty decent at talking to women, notwithstanding the two elder sisters' opinions or his misfortune at being the protagonist of a HaremComedy.

* Averted by Trowa Barton of ''GundamWing''. He was taken in by a group of mercenaries after being lost for several years, with his only female contact apparently coming at age 10 or so. When he shows up in the anime at age 15 (or so), he's [[TheStoic quiet]] but he can still function in everyday life without any problem.

* ''RanmaOneHalf'': Ranma grew up with only his amoral and martial arts-obsessed father for guidance. It shows.
* Allen Schezar of ''VisionOfEscaflowne'' is an interesting example. While we don't know exactly who "raised" him, his mother died and his sister disappeared when he was very young, and so he has probably only had male influences for most of his life (''not'' his father, though). He is an exceptionally moral person, but he tends to put women on pedestals, and his over-protectiveness towards Hitomi verges on stifling. He's a notable example of how someone can be a really good person and a really ''bad'' boyfriend, and a lack of strong women in his life during his youth is probably the cause.
