* Occurs quite often in ''SurvivalOfTheFittest'', for various reasons.
* Trevor James Goodkind (who becomes Phase) starts off in the WhateleyUniverse as a spoiled rich kid, heir to billions, and second in line to take over all of Goodkind International. But the Goodkinds hate and fear mutants (and his mother is clinically mutophobic). When he manifests as a mutant, he is kicked out of the family, disinherited, and then experimented on by a MadScientist in a Goodkind Research lab, some of which activities ''his parents witness''. This may be ''worse'' than having your parents die.

* This is implied to have happened to at least three of the heroes of ''TheQuestportChronicles'', further cementing their statuses as [[BreakTheCutie broken cuties]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/HeroesSaveTheWorld'': It's noted that Hannah has had to make meals for her younger siblings, often enough that seeing Austin get out some food for other people makes her think of these occasions. Many times, there wasn't even properly nourishing food, and she would have to scrounge up a meal from junk like chips.

Added DiffLines:

*''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'':
** Bowser may be in the other room, but he rarely does anything to help his son, Junior, if it doesn't directly help himself as well. He [[AbusiveParents beats his child for screwing up]] and [[BadBoss screams at Chef Pee Pee]], but beyond that he refuses to help his kid with homework, refuses to get his kid food, refuses to be around his son in general due to 'not liking him', and even admitted at one point he didn't even really want him.
** In "Mario the Babysitter!", Jeffy's real parents left Jeffy for Mario to take care of, and have yet to return for him. Mario, who has since become Jeffy's ParentalSubstitute, has also tried to do this to him, [[SubvertedTrope and failed]].

* All three of Barbie's little sisters live with her in ''BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse''. Whether they even have parents since they are literally toys and Barbie is [[OlderThanTheyLook apparently 40+ years old]] despite looking under 25. Maybe they're born their age and never physically age? Then again even Barbie's friends are weirded out by her age so it could be abnormal.

* FanFic/ImAMarvelAndImADC lampshades the frequency of this with comic book characters in its Father's Day special. While recording Father's Day messages, Spider-Man asks if any of the superheroes gathered have parents who are actually alive and gets met with nothing but blank stares.

** There are other examples at the SuperHeroSchool Whateley Academy. Generator has a deceased mother and a child-abuser criminal father. Carmilla's mother is dead and her father is a demon who can't visit this plane of existence under normal conditions. Bladedancer's parents are both dead, her father having been killed by the demon who is pursuing her to this day. There's also Heyoka, Timeless...

** Because of general prejudice against mutants, many parents kick their mutant children out of their home, though they rarely go to the lengths that the Goodkinds did. Aquerna is one of many other students whose parents have disowned them.
