Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'': Niles's father abandoned his mother while she was pregnant, and his mother left shortly after giving birth to him, so soon he doesn't even remember her face. Similarly, Beruka's parents dumped her off on an assassin who raised her to be an emotionless killing machine.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': Most of your party has parents who are never seen or are outright dead:
** The Protagonist, Ryuji, and Ann have parents, but they are never seen and at best are rarely brought up. In Ryuji's case it's due to having an [[AbusiveParents abusive dad]], and in the Protagonist's because they want nothing to do with you while you're on probation. Ann though has no reason given for her parents never being involved.
** Yusuke, Futaba and Makoto lost both their parents. Yusuke was taken in by Madarame, Futaba was adopted by Sojiro, and Makoto lives with her sister. Haru and Goro both lost their mothers [[spoiler:with Haru's father dying partway through the game and Goro's father having abandoned his mother before he was even born.]]

* ''EliteBeatAgents'' gives us one of the biggest TearJerker takes on this trope with its "A Christmas Gift" mission. The girl loses her father in an accident and the mission is to help her accept her loss. The usual EBA way of using song and dance is toned down in wackiness to reflect the somberness of the scene and successful completion [[spoiler:allows the father's spirit to return and deliver the Christmas present he promised.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'''s SPARTAN-II's are taken away from their parents at a young age to be raised by the military. The military made sure that the subject's parents won't search for them by creating a flash clone. While flash cloning works perfectly for stuff like replacement organs, cloning a human is problematic since the accelerated growth results in the clone succumbing to metabolic cascade faliure after a few months.

* In ''Franchise/KingdomHearts,'' Sora's mother gets two lines near the beginning of the first installment, Kairi mysteriously appeared and was apparently adopted by the mayor of the Destiny Islands (she is the only one whose close relative we actually see, her grandmother is shown telling her suspiciously plot relevant fables in a flashback), and Riku's parents are briefly mentioned, as the world crumbles around him. This is the '''only''' time anyone's parents are mentioned and it makes the proceedings very awkward if one is inclined to stop and think about it. Also, Roxas from the second game gets along amazingly well despite ''never having had parents''. [[spoiler:Since Roxas is Sora's Nobody, his parents would seem to be Sora's, who he's never met, due to Sora's parents being worlds away and not mentioned even once in the second game.]]

Added DiffLines:

** EDI does ''not'' have abandonment issues from being on the other side from the Illusive Man, who she does ''not'' see as a father figure. This comes up because Shepard noticed the pattern and specifically asked.
