* In ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'', Sana's (adoptive) mother's ex-husband shows up at their house a couple of times asking for money. Of course, due to the comedic nature of the show, he's likely to be (harmlessly) blasted with some sort of large weapon, sending him flying away. Played with in that Sana and her mom's ex-husband don't actually consider themselves father-and-daughter, and legally-speaking, they're not--Misako (Sana's adoptive mother) actually adopted Sana as a single parent, which happened long after she and her husband got divorced.

* Presumably occurs at the beginning of VideoGame/AmongTheSleep, judging by the sound affects when Mom goes to answer the door in the first cutscene and via clues revealed throughout the game. Said 'visit', unfortunately, is nothing more than an entirely offscreen argument between Mom and Dad, ending with Mom shouting 'NO' loudly and clearly and apparently slamming the door in his face before giving you the present he had for you. By the way, you're a 2-year-old. [[spoiler:Dad returns at the very end, after Mom has been revealed as alcoholic, and you open the door and let him in. It's assumed this visit was actually to take you away after winning custody.]]

In a show where the main child character is mentioned to have divorced parents (or at least parents that aren't together anymore), they're pretty much always shown living with their mom, who's typically depicted as being the more mature and responsible. However, often times, there will end up being an episode the child's father visits (usually but not always as part of some custody arrangement).

** The SpinOff series, ''Friends Forever'', had Kristy's dad get married again and finally remember that he has kids - because he wants the three oldest ones to be in the wedding. He doesn't even seem to remember that the youngest child (who was a baby when he left) exists, and is kind of a JerkAss throughout the whole thing.

This rarely works in the reverse, as dads usually aren't portrayed as raising children as single parents unless the mom is dead or something.

In a show where a main character is being raised by a single mom, there will be an episode where the divorced dad visits.

This rarely works in the reverse, as single fathers are rarely portrayed with custody unless the mother is dead.

* Happens pretty regularly on ''MyNameIsEarl''. One episode involved Earl discussing his list for Dodge's class [[spoiler: and it's revealed that he is Dodge's biological father.]] Another episode involved signing the kids out of camp to take them to Mystery Fun Land...only to find that the amusement park has been torn down. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Dodge and Earl Jr. forgive "Old Daddy" and cross "Never took the kids to Mystery Fun Land" off the list]].
