Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A Doting Parent is chiefly characterized by his or her rock-solid belief that no-one on Earth has better, smarter, more talented, or better-looking children and will continually gush about that "fact" to everyone. They are the kind of parents who are obsessed with following their children's love lives, fixing them up with members of the opposite sex, making sure they have the best opportunities in life to their eventual and complete embarrassment, sending them presents they don't want, and drive everyone around them insane by going on at length about the wonderfulness of their children!
Unlike the Overprotective Dad or My Beloved Smother, the Doting Parent is generally not controlling or overprotective and does not view their child's potential or actual love interest as a threat. They encourage dating and find it amusing to tease their child relentlessly about any progress or lack thereof in their relationship. They even go so far as to "adopt" their children's significant others into the family well before either of the parties involved are ready to make that sort of commitment because they are so confident in their children's ability to choose a fitting partner.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Likewise, they have no problems with children leaving the nest, however, there are similarities to Overprotective Dad and My Beloved Smother in that there may be some elements of smother. To this end, the Doting Parent may come to face some of the same situations, as their children tend to choose to live on their own as early as humanly possible in an (often vain) attempt to avoid their parent's embarrassing behavior.
Typically, the Doting Parents have no interest in actually running their children's lives... after all, their superior children should be able to accomplish anything on their own. However, from time to time they may unobtrusively lend a hand and they are always open to giving advice (and are usually disappointed when their children don't come to them for help when they need it). Doting Parents also generally do not concern themselves with what their children are actually doing when out of sight, as long as when they do get to see them they are healthy and doing well.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })In darker circumstances, the Royal Brat, the Spoiled Brat, and the Enfant Terrible often have Doting Parents, who are so (innocently or willfully) blind to their children's many faults they often end up enabling them. The lack of boundaries set can sometimes lead to consequences down the road, when the child reaches maturity.
Compare with Doting Grandparent.

Dragon Quest VIII has King Trode, who dotes over "his precious Medea" at any opportunity and cares far more about her welfare than anything else in the world. One of his most sympathetic moments is when he begs a Royal Brat who was beating the party's horse (which is Medea's cursed form) to beat him instead.

In Tokyo Ghoul:Re, Mirumo Tsukiyama is absolutely devoted to his son. His diary entries in the 4th volume reveal that he believes he needs to double the love given to his son, to make up for the absence of his late wife. He's shown to be incredibly proud of anything and everything his son does, and devotes everything to helping his son recover from his lengthy Angst Coma.

Kiri's parents in Double Arts are not only Happily Married and making a warm, loving home for their son—they immediately adopt his new friend, Ellie, into the family, and promptly begin loving, spoiling, and feeding her just as enthusiastically as their own child, if not more so. (When they're not exchanging knowing looks behind both teenagers' backs.)

Richard Castle tends to vary between this and the Overprotective Dad when it comes to his daughter Alexis; as long as boys or activities that might attract boys aren't involved, he's often indulgent and keen to actually encourage his daughter to break the rules and let her hair down a bit.

The Simpsons: Chief Wiggum, of all people. While he may be a horribly inept and corrupt cop, he genuinely cares for his son, Ralph Wiggum. He's the only one who actively encourages his son, and their interactions usually end up with Ralph coming out better for it. He's even willing to turn a blind eye to Fat Tony's operation if he and his crew come to his son's birthday.

Lyrical Nanoha:
The Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Comics à la Carte official anthology book has the one-shot comic "2nd Mother's Day", which portrayed Fate as this.
According to the INNOCENT manga, she gets it from her mother; Alternate Universe Precia is a very loving and doting parent who tends to occasionally go to slight extremes. Although, considering what Preica was like in the main continuity, there's also a strong case of I Am Not My Father at play.

Maes Hughes (pictured) in Fullmetal Alchemist is the epitome of a doting papa, as well as an Overprotective Dad. He just loves to brag about his adorable daughter to anyone and everyone within earshot, and showers her with affection when he is not on duty (or is on duty but she happens to be with him at the time).

Most of the parents in Dragon Ball, to some degree or another. Of note is Mr. Satan, who makes no secret of the fact that he absolutely adores his daughter and granddaughter. Krillin and #18 also deserve a special mention. Also a participation award for Goku, who devotes himself fully to being the best father he can... but spends so much time dead and/or training that he's still gone for most of his children's childhood, and when he is there he makes some rather significant well-intentioned mistakes. Points for effort, though. Memetic Mutation has it that Piccolo is the best father in the series, with Goku falling well behind Vegeta.

Harry Potter: The titular character’s Muggle aunt and uncle are the bad version of this trope to his cousin Dudley. They spoil him so much that he’s a juvenile delinquent by about the mid-point of the books whereas when he was younger, he was a more stereotypical spoiled kid. Malfoy’s parents are also like this to an extent but they do have high expectations for him whereas the Dursleys let Dudley do whatever the hell he wants.

A running theme in Power Rangers is that even villains have family, and no matter how evil they are to the heroes, they can be this trope to their children.

Mrs. Katsura of Hayate the Combat Butler, as Hinagiku's foster mother, is often seen acting this way. She's probably the first one who adopted Hayate into their family, despite Hinagiku just being a leading member of Hayate's unnoticed harem, and actually tells him to resist her attacks when she's probably the only young woman who hasn't taken any action towards him.

John's Dad in Homestuck positively smothers John with cakes, and his house is filled with notes informing John how proud he is of him, just in case John happens to perform the feat involved to reach the note. However, given John is traumatized by a doll version of Jack Noir, and subconsciously scribbles things like "Lame Kid" and "FOOL" all over his walls, it's very understandable. Post-Scratch Dad is similarly supportive of Jane, although assassination attempts have forced him to be a bit more protective of her.

Spirit Albarn from Soul Eater, to his daughter Maka. Thinks she's an angel, insists on her general loveliness (and in a misguided moment of parental support, attractiveness). This is not appreciated by Maka. Shinigami doesn't count in practice, but could be seen as this from at least his and Kid's first exchange in the series. Well, Kid's stripes are cute...

Kyouko Tsunashi from I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying is a weird example since she's an inversion of Obnoxious In-Laws. She positively adores her daughter-in-law Kaoru, but thinks her son Hajime is a lazy bum who needs to get a job and make her a grandmother.

Jade Chan from the Jackie Chan Adventures fanfiction Web Work after turning into a spider demon goes from hating her eggs to talking to them like she would talk to human babies, even calling them her 'sweeties'. Her mentor finds this odd since their kind are not normally so doting on their young. She even treats her henchwomen more like little girls than grown women after she turns them into spider women too.

Out of all the Crystal Gems on Steven Universe, Pearl fits the bill the best. Garnet and Amethyst act more like cool older sisters to Steven. Pearl is the one who fusses over him and cares the most about his safety. Considering that she was straight-up in love with his mother, Rose Quartz, it's clear she expresses that same affection in a different way. Fans have even given her the nickname "Bird Mom" since she looks kind of like a crane.

In the Mass Effect's fanfic Crucible, if a parent isn't abusive, they would either be this trope or Good Parents. The most obvious examples would be Garrus for his son Gaius or Miranda and Adrien for Tiberius. Later, it turns out that The Bare-Faced Turian/Samikis/Sam Shepard, is also one (with a huge dose of Knight Templar Parent and Manipulative Bastard added into the mix). As he knows that the universe needs a savior who can lead people to fight against enemies in and outside this world, he decided that the best person to do it is his daughter and thus, has manipulated her life behind the screen so that she could get the best mentors from the moment she enlisted. He lured her to Alchera to die so she could be reborn with a better body and an immunity to the Aegrus's infection while he could live with her in the afterlife during the waiting time. And he gave chances for her and her future-husband to meet, fell in love and later married into the man's family since he knows all of them will love and protect her no matter what.

Dr. Doofenshmirtz of Phineas and Ferb has a bit of this towards his teenage daughter Vanessa, such as when he throws her an embarrassingly childish birthday party and invites all her friends. She finds this annoying in early episodes, but later their relationship becomes warmer. The turning point comes when he presents her with a doll she'd said she wanted when she was seven, and reveals he spent the last ten years scouring garage sales and the internet looking for it.

Batman:
Bruce Wayne has repeatedly said that his adopted son Dick Grayson was the only thing he ever did right. He treats his adopted daughter Cassandra similarly, when the writers remember she exists, though the fandom tends to exaggerate his treatment of both for comedic effect.
Jim Gordon is this to his daughter Barbara, especially after the 2011 reboot, where it's revealed that Jim was the one who found the clinic in South Africa that helped Barbara regain her ability to walk follow being shot by The Joker in The Killing Joke.
He isn't this to his son James Gordon Junior, but that's understandable since Junior is a murderous lunatic.

According to the INNOCENT manga, she gets it from her mother; Alternate Universe Precia is a very loving and doting parent who tends to occasionally go to slight extremes. Although, considering what Preica was like in the main continuity, there's also a strong case of I Am Not My Father at play.

It is hinted that King Krichevskoy from Disgaea was one of these. His son Laharl seems to have distanced himself from Krichevskoy after his mother’s death, but that did not stop Krichevskoy from thinking very highly of his son and having great faith in him. He also thinks Laharl inherited his own “sparkling good looks”. He also executed a plan that evidently involved getting Laharl two pretty girls and willingly acts as a “rival” to help his son get stronger. Laharl is also a Royal Brat, no idea where that came from.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Holly Kujo is very affectionate towards her son Jotaro and insists he's a nice, sweet young man even when he's acting like the violent, foul-mouthed delinquent he is.
Holly's own father, Joseph Joestar, is extremely protective of her and helps do things like brush her teeth, comb her hair, trim her nails and clean her feet when she falls ill. Joseph also makes an effort to be a good father to his illegitimate son, Josuke Higashikata, though he is somewhat impeded by his senility.
A darker example is Part 4's Yoshihiro Kira, who is completely devoted to ensuring his son Yoshikage Kira lives a happy, safe life, to the point of living beyond death as a photograph to watch over him. Said son is a remorseless Serial Killer, so this protection takes the form of becoming the accomplice to dozens of murders by providing Kira his Stand to make his murders cleaner and attempting to kill anyone investigating him.

Gakuen Babysitters:
Ryuuichi has shades of this in how he treats his little brother and the daycare children. He is generally very patient and accommodating of their childish beliefs and behaviors, and goes out of his way to ensure that Kotarou doesn't feel lonely or invalidated in any way. He's terrified of the thought of any of the children getting hurt, and will come running the instant he hears Kotarou crying. Inomata even points out that he might be a bit too accommodating, which sometimes leads to the kids getting out of hand with their ideas.
Usaida is this to Midori as he has to supervise her constantly since she's an infant. He's almost always seen either holding her or having her strapped to his back, and he proves himself very protective of her when he walks to the daycare with a burning fever just because he thought Midori was in trouble. He's actually really happy when Midori's first word is his name, but downplays it as a fluke when he sees how cross Yukari is about it.

Gunn's Mom, and his dad to a degree in Make the Yuletide Gay. This actually drives most of the plot, as Gunn doesn't want to lose this by coming out to his parents for fear of being rejected by them. The parents don't care and actually placed a bet on whether or not he actually is.

In Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl Hazumu's dad is this. It comes off as somewhat incest-ish though.

Hugh and Simon Renegades dote absolutely on Max and Adrian, doing their best to make both of them feel like they're family. They're also heavily shipping Adrian and Nova, and are genuinely happy when he brings her home.

In El Goonish Shive, Mr. Kitsune is this way toward Akiko. When he finally gets speaking lines, he's promising Akiko three cookies when they get home, in spite of her protests that she only wants one. He's yet to show this behavior towards Nanase, however.

Doctor Who: In "The End of Time", billionaire Joshua Naismith's life seems to revolve around his daughter. Stealing an "immortality gate" from the ruins of a secret government organization and kidnapping a dangerous alien for the sake of a Christmas present is pretty creepy.

Child of the Storm:
Thor/James walks the line between this and Good Parents, happily teasing and spoiling Harry. Harry is, unsurprisingly, not in the least averse to this (though rather embarrassed about the teasing).
Wanda Maximoff, his godmother, becomes his substitute mother, after an understandably rocky start (being the apprentice of the Sorcerer Supreme, she couldn't take him in because of the very high chance that he'd be eaten by demons or some such. The fact that she's Magneto's daughter doesn't help on child safety, either), frequently hugging him. Since Harry's a bit of a Cuddle Bug, what with not really having known much in the way of affection during his childhood and opening up a bit from his repressed canon self, he's more than happy to reciprocate.
Sadly subverted with Carol's father Joe Danvers: He thinks he's being a Doting Parent, and according to his mother-in-law, was when his children were small. However, he wants his quiet, withdrawn son to be more sportsmanlike, and his Action Girl daughter to be more feminine and ladylike-essentially, for them to swap roles. An old-fashioned viewpoint is one thing, but psychologically abusing them-even unintentionally-is something else entirely. And asking the daughter's best friend to use his psychic powers to repogram them is definitely out.

Papa Briscoe taught his boys to work as soon as they could walk, and he also gave them the material needed to build a wrestling ring, and he also got them tapes to study, and he also drove them out to training during high school after football practice, and he also cuts promos for them in Ring of Honor about how great they are.

In Aladdin: The Sultan is this way to Jasmine. It's clear he loves her more than anything else (the TV series even calling her his most precious treasure). He may be rather dim witted and childish, but mess with his daughter and he WILL hunt you down. He does try to force her to get married but he doesn't force her to marry anyone in particular; he isn't trying marry her off for political gain, as most monarchs would do at the time, but because he wants somebody to care for and protect Jasmine after he dies. He even changes the law to allow her to marry a commoner and treats her fiancé with nothing but respect.

Commander Badass, from Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, is an absolute marshmallow where his two kids are concerned. It's seen more often with his daughter, who is old enough to insist that Daddy join her watching Jem, help her bake the most ridiculous muffins ever, and bring her a pet from his stay on a planet full of millipedes (which he's grown to hate due to his stay on a planet full of millipedes), among other things. He is also a stern but fair and supportive Parental Substitute to his Manchild intern Jared, who has grown immensely as a human being under the Commander's wing.

Marshall Ericksen's parents in How I Met Your Mother are like this, which gives Lily a lot of anxiety about not being able to live up to their expectations for how well their beloved son's wife should treat him. Barney and James's mother Loretta also is this, although she was rather inept at it when they were kids.

King Duncan of Ranger's Apprentice is a little bit of an Overprotective Dad to Princess Cassandra, but given that his wife died in childbirth and that she's his only child as well as the heir to the Kingdom, he can be excused. He genuinely cares about her well-being, is proud of her accomplishments, and is highly protective without smothering her. Of course, given that she's a very strong-minded and independent young woman, she doesn't always agree on that last point, but overall they have an excellent relationship. He even plays a little of the Shipper on Deck for her and Will in Book 4, offering him a position in the Royal Scouts so that he can be closer to her, but that doesn't go anywhere. And when Cassandra ends up with Horace, all indications are that he's completely fine with his daughter marrying a commoner.
