* While Kensuke is growing up under far better conditions than the pilots in ''Fanfic/NeonMetathesisEvangelion'', matters aren't perfect. As the sidestory, ''Life During Wartime'', indicates, his mother is dead, and his father is well off, but basically never around, always staying late at work.

* ParentalSubstitute {{Aver|tedTrope}}sion in ''Manga/MissKobayashisDragonMaid''. Kobayashi initially said she wouldn't be able to attend Parent's day (Sports Day in the anime) at Kanna's school due to it being the launch day for a project she was working on, but she then worked even more insane hours than normal to go anyway after realizing how important it was to Kanna.

* In the 2016 Starlight event in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'', a young and sick boy wants only one gift and that is to see his father. Because the boy's father is a merchant, he spends a lot of time away from the city and has little to no time to rest. Seeing that his father will never show up, the boy's illness grows worse because he gave up hope. You then confront the boy's father before he sets sail to another land and it turns out that he was away for so long in order to find a cure for his son and he just found it, but it requires him to go overseas in order to negotiate a deal for the medicine. In the end, the father can't return home, but the boy bounces back with confidence once he hears the truth and vows to stay strong until his father returns.

* Entirely averted by ''{{Literature/Discworld}}'s'' Sam Vimes, who ''will'' read his son's favorite storybook to him every night at 6 PM, come hell, high water or terrorist attack. The Watch get in on the act, blocking off the two busiest streets in Ankh-Morpork at rush hour solely so he can get through, and he even manages, [[spoiler:while in a berserk fury, deep underground and possessed by a vengeance demon]], to roar the story loud enough for his son to hear it from several miles away.

* [[{{Ojou}} Eri]] from ''Manga/SchoolRumble'' has this sort of relationship with her rich businessman father, who spends a lot of time away on business. One time she had put a lot of effort into her plans to make dinner for the two of them that night, only for him to pull up right in front of her in his limousine to let her know that he has to fly out of Japan immediately and can't make dinner after all. She puts on a brave face and tries to be understanding, telling him she had plans to meet up with a friend anyway, but as he drives away leaving her [[GrayRainOfDepression standing in the rain]] it's clear she's heartbroken.

* In the DistantFinale of ''{{Manga/Naruto}}'', [[spoiler:Boruto Uzumaki]] seems to have this relation ship with his father, [[spoiler:Naruto]]. He spends a lot of time playing pranks mostly as an effort to get his dad's attention since he's too busy being the [[spoiler:seventh Hokage]]. It is rather grating as Boruto is being even ''brattier'' than his father as a kid, as well as under-appreciative.

* ''Podcast/PlumbingTheDeathStar'': Mario gets a 5/10 as a stepdad largely because he's too busy plumbing, saving princesses, [[VideoGame/MarioKart going go-kart racing]], [[VideoGame/MarioParty holding massive parties]], and [[VideoGame/MarioAndSonicAtTheOlympicGames mastering sports]] to raise a child with love and care.
