* Rosa Fiametta and to a lesser extent her sister Frankie of ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'' have this type of relationship with their father, who has pretty blatent favouritism for their brother Ilario and doesn't seem to care very much about his daughters. Both want acknowledgement/attention from their father, neither is exactly going about getting it in the right way.

* While not his father, Richard from ''SuikodenV'' is wicked attached to his father figure, Mueller, and is always trying to get his attention, impress him, and make him happy. Seriously, this kid's entire world revolves around Mueller, so much that he's willing to carry any IdiotBall if it's for Mueller and it ''embarrasses'' Mueller.

** A straighter example is SuikodenIV's Snowe Vingerhut, who longs to please his powerful, manipulative father. He even [[ICallItVera calls his sword]] 'Daddy Blade'.

* Ahsoka Tano from ''StarWarsTheCloneWars''. The only thing that genuinely worries her, is disappointing her master, Anakin. [[spoiler:Well was, until the Season 3 finale.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Most of Haru's problems in ''Manga/{{Ojojojo}}'' (including her JerkassFacade) can be traced back to her need to make her father proud of her. This is best shown in his first appearance when she nearly agreed to an ArrangedMarriage despite him explicitly telling her that she didn't have to go through with it.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/ChivalryOfAFailedKnight'', Ikki Kurogane was shunned by his family for being born weak and lacking natural talent. Ikki then dedicated his life to becoming the greatest swordsman he could be so that he could be a man his father would be proud of. While he succeeded in becoming a MasterSwordsman, his father [[KickTheDog bluntly tells him]] he will ''never'' support or acknowledge him, because Ikki's story of self improvement completely contradicts his father's philosophy that everyone is born to be "cogs in a machine", which means everyone's talent and rank is predetermined. His father even attempts to sabotage Ikki's progress to prevent him from inspiring others to improve. After getting past the HeroicBSOD, Ikki accepted that his father is an asshole and decided to live only for himself and his friends and girlfriend.

* There's a bit of an inversion in the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse. After he dies, Anakin Skywalker becomes a Force ghost. He appears briefly to Luke in ''ReturnOfTheJedi'' but says nothing; a hundred twenty years later, in ''ComicBook/{{Legacy}}'', he speaks to a {{wangst}}y descendent, but in the meantime he's only been written speaking to one person - [[Literature/TheTruceAtBakura Leia]]. He wants to apologize to her, tell her how proud he is of her, and be forgiven. However, she is furious and ''horrified'' at the sight of him, doesn't want to know that any part of him survived, still considers Bail to be her real father, and doesn't believe that [[KarmaHoudini redemption equaled death at all]]. Even after he fades out she's angry and deeply disturbed; by the end of the book she hasn't changed her mind, but decides that if he wants to be proud of her, fine.

* Spoofed in ''Film/WalkHardTheDeweyCoxStory'', in which Dewey's father's response to anything his son does since accidentally cutting his brother in half with a machete is to growl "Wrong kid died!" [[spoiler:He ends up engaging in an attempt at OffingTheOffspring.]]

* Subverted on ''Series/CornerGas''. The one and only time Oscar Leroy praises his son, Brent is simply creeped out by [[GrumpyOldMan his father]] acting so out-of-character.

** It turns out to be a case of ItRunsInTheFamily: Naruto and [[spoiler:Hinata]]'s son Boruto is probably '''the epitome of this trope''' InUniverse. Having a great childhood with his family--''especially'' in comparison to [[DarkAndTroubledPast the hell that both of his parents went through when he was their age]]--Boruto's life turns upside down when Naruto is appointed as Hokage. Losing his hero's attention and feeling distant to him, Boruto does everything to spend time with his father, even acting out just so he could be lectured by him. On the other hand, his accomplishments are overlooked due to being the son of Naruto and this makes him feeling inadequate and insecure, even though he's a prodigy. He doesn't want to enter Chuunin Exams until it's pointed out to him that his father would be watching him. During the exams, [[spoiler: when he receives a "Well Done" from his father for passing the test, ''he is moved to tears''. This desperation to keep his father's acknowledgement drives him to cheat. And it goes without saying, [[GoneHorriblyWrong everything ends in a fiasco]].]]
