* The London arc of ''WebVideo/ShadowrunCorporateSins'' revolves around Cromwell's search for Pip, the dwarf who raised him on Yomi Island, a Japanese concentration camp for metahumans. When the team finally finds him [[spoiler: they find that not only is he a nanny rather than a butler but that he's a BTL addict and a fighter in an illegal fight ring]]. Nonetheless he and Cromwell do reconcile once he explains that as rough as he may have treated Cromwell he was doing what he thought was best and Cromwell admits that he probably wouldn't have survived Yomi without him.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Father's Day", Rose meets up with her dead father, whom she knows only from her mother's stories. He proves to be up to his neck in get-rich-quick schemes and he and her mother quarrel almost continuously. However, in the end, her father makes a HeroicSacrifice to save the universe. Rose's voice-over at the beginning and end of the episode are both about her father, but the concluding one is full of new insight.

Rose's voice-over at the beginning and end of the episode are both about her father, but the concluding one is full of new insight. She better gets to know him (or rather an alternate universe version) in another episode. Turns out that his get-rich-quick schemes would've ''succeeded'' if he actually lived and despite initially being hostile to Rose (namely because he didn't get to be a dad here), he quickly embraces her as the daughter he never had.

** In another episode, Arnold himself meets his favorite author and interviews her for a book report. She's an irascible recluse who acts like Arnold is an idiot for liking the cheerful fantasy stories she wrote years ago. When Arnold gives his report, he doesn't sugarcoat any of it, though we see that his own idealism rubbed off on her enough that she wound up writing a new book based on the experience.

** He had an earlier moment in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'', where he views one of Snape's [[TransferableMemory Pensieve memories]] and observes his practically-sainted father, James, being a bullying JerkJock to Snape. A moment later verified by James' [[TrueCompanions fellow Marauders]], Sirius and Remus. They assure Harry that James matured into the man everyone remembers, but it took some time (and the influence of Lily, Harry's mother).

* In WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman, Bojack lets Diane, his ghost writer for his autobiography, tell a warts and all story. However, he changes his tune once he actually reads the book, which portrays him as the pathetic figure he really is, having hoped that he would at least come off as sympathetic.

** Naruto himself counts, as by the end of the series, he truly is a shinobi worthy of the history books and a legend in his own right, but he's still ''[[IdiotHero Na]][[{{Keet}} ru]][[NoSocialSkills to]]''. As ''Anime/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'' shows, Hinata still loves Naruto for who he is, rather than the hero he's supposed to be, which is [[spoiler:one of the reasons why he marries ''her'' in the end]]. Hinata has admired, acknowledged, and loved him ''for him'' since the very beginning. Both the flashback in Chapter 538 and [[WordOfGod a post-series interview with Kishimoto]] confirm that she was the very first person to acknowledge him for who he is, ''long'' before Iruka did. She loved him long before he ever became the hero in the public's eye and she'll love him long after his story fades into legend.
