** Of course, the cast of ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' don't have it any easier than their predecessors. The [[PlayerCharacter Ryder twins]] lost their mother to an illness while they were still in the Milky Way and their father to a freak accident not long after reaching Andromeda.

** Cora Harper's parents disappeared in the Attican Traverse with the rest of their ship not long after she joined the Alliance. Cora never found out what happened to them.
** Vetra Nyx's mother wanted nothing to do with her children after she divorced their father, and their father disappeared when Vetra was a teenager, forcing Vetra to [[PromotionToParent raise her much younger sister Sidera herself]]. Vetra never found out if her father was killed or if he just ran away.
** Jaal's father was captured by the kett and never seen again. Unfortunately that is not atypical among angara children.
** Gil Brodie's father ran of before he was born, and it is implied that he lost his mother at an early age, leaving him as a StreetUrchin.
** Lexi T'Pero grew up on [[WretchedHive Omega]] and lost both of her parents in a turf war.
** Something happened to Nakmor Kesh's parents that resulted in her [[RaisedByGrandparents being raised by her grandfather, Drack]]. Drack prefers not to discuss the matter due to the implication of OutlivingOnesOffspring.
** In general, anyone who didn't bring their parents to Andromeda with them, such as Liam and Suvi, had to mourn them once they woke up due to the six hundred year journey.

* In ''DungeonFighterOnline'', both the Fighter and the Slayer have lost their parents. The Fighter lost her parents to monsters, but the manner in which the Slayer lost his parents was [[DemonicPossession much]] [[SelfMadeOrphan more]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone sinister]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', every member of SEES has parents who are either distant or dead. That makes it a lot easier to go live in a dorm full of teenagers and a creepy old guy, and ''a lot'' easier to go out at midnight on a near daily basis.
* ''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.]]

** Probably the worst example of the professor leaving Flora is in the third installment where we do not see her until Chapter 5 out of 13 and after Luke and Layton have [[Spoiler: already been to the "future"]. Flora is rightfully angry that they left her behind again despite her only ties being the two of them. The two apologize and give and empty promise not to leave her behind again. But literally as her back is turned as she goes to make [[YourFavorite some tea and cucumber sandwiches]]. By the time she returns with the [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodSandwich food she worked so hard on to server to them they are already gone.]] She Follows them down reasonably irate and feels that the reason they leave her behind is because she thinks they believe she will just get in the way, after chewing him out, Luke and even Inspector Chelmey agree and sympathize with her. Later in the game when flora is [[StandardFemaleGrabArea kidnapped and dragged]] along by [[spoiler:Clive Dove]] Luke intimately goes after her, while the professor only makes pursuit after Flora and [[spoiler: Clive]] are out the door. They do go after her as she is LockedUpAndLeftBehind in the villains fortress. It is unknown how well or worse his parenting got after [[spoiler: Luke moved to America]]

** Layton himself Abandons flora seeminly every chance he get either on purpose or on accident. He often uses a DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Excuse saying how dangerous it is to bring a lady on his adventures. In spite of this he brings his Apprentice and Friends son who is much younger with him all the time. Although he seems to be a InnocentBigot as it seems to be his way of protecting her since he is his child and luke is not. But he tends to treat her ironically as a FragileFlower. He does let her tag along sometimes but that usually leads her to be DamselInDistress and the DesignatedVictim when she does accompany him.

* ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' This Happens quite a bit in the series
**The most common recurring example is with Professor Layton's adopted Daughter Flora Reinhold. When Flora was very young [[spoiler: her mother died]] But her Father [[spoiler: made her a robot replica of her deceased mother which she was terrified of. and led her to be [[RaisedbyRobots Raised by the village of robots]] until her fathers death and Professor Laytons arrival.]]
**Layton himself Abandons flora seeminly every chance he get either on purpose or on accident. He often uses a DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou Excuse saying how dangerous it is to bring a lady on his adventures.

He does let her tag along sometimes but that usually leads her to be DamselInDistress and the DesignatedVictim when she does accompany him.
**In the second game The Professor and Luke leave her behind to go on an investigation but she ended up following him in a PaperThinDisguise because she [[PleaseDontLeaveMe "Didn't want to be left all alone again"]] [[spoiler: Flora is kidnapped by [[MasterOfDisguise Don Paolo]] so he can [[KillAndReplace disguise himself and Pose as her]] and leave her alone in a barn fast asleep. (presumably after chloroforming her, but did not harm her in anyway.) Nobody notices for most of the game until "Flora" [[SpottingTheThread revealed something only someone who had seen Diabolical box would know]]Which leads Layton to expose him in TheReveal. They later go back for Flora in the end credits. ]]

* In the ''{{Spore}}'' cutscence for when for when your creature family migrates to a new nest, one of the adults will stay behind to watch over the eggs. Your creature then hatches and you have to find the new nest.

* While it's unclear if [[PlayerCharacter Chell]] from the ''Videogame/{{Portal}}''-series actually fits in this trope, many of the things [=GLaDOS=] says in ''Videogame/Portal2'' seem to imply it. Then again, she's a compulsive liar with a grudge, so what she says needs to be taken with a truckload of salt.
