* In Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/TheWintersTale'', the [[RagsToRoyalty lost]] [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses Princess Perdita]] is abandoned as a baby and raised by a Shepherd and his son. Averted in that she seems to have grown up to be a perfectly well-adjusted young woman.

* When [[VideoGame/FatalFury Rock Howard]] came into the custody of [[TheHero Terry Bogard]] after the death of his father [[BigBad Geese]] at the former's hand, he spent the next ten years or so pretty much isolated from women. This doesn't factor much into his appearance in ''Garou: Mark of the Wolves'', but in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters: [[AlternateContinuity Maximum Impact]]'', he's hit full force by his inability to be anything other than awkward around members of the fairer sex. He's unwillingly shoehorned into being the object of desire in a LoveTriangle between [[ElegantGothicLolita Ninon Beart]] [[BettyAndVeronica and]] [[PirateGirl B. Jenet]]. Poor Rock is absolutely flabbergasted when both of these babes make passes at him. It would seem that of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Regulation A]]'', the only female that he acts "normal" around is Blue Mary, but considering [[ShipTease her relationship with Terry]], it's plausible that he sees her as an [[CoolBigSis older sister]] or even as a second mother.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' Keel is introduced as a young boy but eventually revealed to be a girl. She was completely unaware of this as her father, having no idea how to raise a daughter, had simply raised her as a boy and said that gender was a "state of mind".


Often comes with the idea [[MotherhoodIsSuperior in the absence of women]], men cannot competently raise children, especially babies and little girls. It can set up a DoubleStandard for RealLife {{House Husband}}s and single dads, not to mention gay people. Compare and contrast to MaternallyChallenged, which focuses on female incompetence when it comes to raising children.

* An inversion in WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse where main character Lincoln Loud lives in a family where the majority of the influences are female and his dad has some feminine tendencies. That said, it's a downplayed inversion since roughly half of Lincoln's sisters are tomboys of some degree and he himself just has some traits that make sense given his family dynamic such as having younger sisters who are [[PolarOppositeTwins a set of twins consisting of a pageant star and a mud lover]] causing him to know how difficult it is to clean certain fabrics.

* In Myth/ClassicalMythology, Atalanta is abandoned on a mountaintop since [[HeirClubForMen her dad wanted a son]]. She's found by [[RaisedByWolves a bear]] and then taken in by some hunters. As a result, she's pretty much the only mortal ActionGirl in the mythos, other than the Amazons. As the WebAnimation/OverlySarcasticReviews telling put it:

->''I grew up in the mountains with my father, who was a knight in his own right. He taught me the arts of war as though I was his son. Of course, lessons in common courtesy were not part of the regimen, so forgive me if I come off as rude, yeah?''
-->--'''Ashei''', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''

Added DiffLines:

* Theran in ''Literature/BlackJewels'' is a PlayedForDrama example. As the [[NobleFugitive last heir to the Greyhaven family]], he was raised in secret in a warrior camp in the mountains and had little contact with women. This meant that his view of women was rather shallow and often based on appearance or how "dazzling" they were, leading him to fail to see the goodness of proper queens like Cassidy and Jaenelle and ignore the flaws of the obviously corrupt Kermilla.

* Al (short for Alicia) in ''Series/StepByStep'' features this in the Lamberts' backstory. Growing up in a house with a dad who owns a construction company, a JerkJock older brother, and a fart humor loving younger one, she became very much a tomboy who had trouble getting along with girls her age and got into fights fairly often. On the inverted side, Mark was the youngest son of the Foster family, with a beautician mother and two older sisters who are TheDitz and a [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan snarking]] GranolaGirl, respectively. He has problems mustering up ''any'' kind of masculinity, being a HollywoodNerd who cringes from any kind of conflict (and is, not coincidentally, routinely beaten up by Al). Many episodes from the first few seasons deal with Al and Mark trying to adapt to having an opposite-sex role model, with varying degrees of success.
