* Theo Nero in ''Webcomic/{{CharCole}}'' is far too distracted being a scientist to be a father to the main character. The most {{egregious}} example was when he wished his son a happy 16th birthday. The problem? His son had just turned ''18''.

It does end on a heartwarming moment, however.

Subtrope of ParentalNeglect. While not quite AlwaysMale, has a strong tendency to be about Dad rather than Mom. Not really ParentalAbandonment, because the parents are there, and not HandsOffParenting either, because they usually aren't hippies. This trope is the most usual portrait of ParentsAsPeople, and usually part of the backstory of a LonelyRichKid. Overlaps with PulledFromYourDayOff if they try to make time but work interferes anyway.

* The canonical reason why Scootaloo's parents [[InvisibleParents never appear]] in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is because they're working all the time (which often leaves her in the custody of her two aunts). Their absence has left Scootaloo craving the attention of her CoolBigSis figure Rainbow Dash.
