* MultipleChoicePast: The Theogony contradict itself on some occasions (possibly because of textual corruption). Are the Moiria the daughters of Nyx or of Zeus and Themis? Is Athena the daughter of Zeus and Metis or is she born to Zeus without mother?

* [[PaterFamilicide Pater Familiphagia]]: Cronos swallowed alive as many as five of his children.

To cut a long story short, in the beginning there was not only Chaos but also Gaia (Mother Earth), Tartarus (Ineffably Deep Abyss), and Eros (who in those times resembled rather Will To Procreate than Romantic Love). Then, Gaia gave birth, among other creatures, to Ouranos (Heaven) and Pontus (Sea), both of whom later [[ParentalIncest fathered on her]] many children. This strange family had three main branches:

This strange family had three main branches:

* AlmightyJanitor: Tartarus. Apparently powerful enough to hold the titans, cyclopes, and hekatoncheires prisoner for eternity, the only thing he ever actually does is sleep with Gaia to father Typhon. Even then, it's Gaia who sets Typhon on Zeus, not Tartarus. Tartarus is apparently content to sit back and enjoy his role as jailor/jail for the gods.

* OffingTheOffspring: The only possible justification for Cronos' actions is that he really hadn't a good paternal example to follow.

* RuleOfThree: The story mentions three cases of dethronement of the father by his son, the last of which was prophesied sufficiently early to avert it by swallowing the pregnant mother of a dangerous child. When the child was eventually [[MisterSeahorse given birth by the father]], it inexplicably turned out to be a girl, and [[DaddysGirl not a one]] particularly inclined to commit patricide.

* InTheBlood: The tradition of killing one's father before seizing the rule over the world was very prominent in the family of Zeus. Also, the children of Phorkys and Keto were all monsters, whereas water was more than essential for all the descendants of Oceanus and Tethys.

* EpicCatalog: ''Theogony'' comes close to being nothing but this trope, but the straightest examples would be the lists of the lovers of Zeus and the male gods their children (lines 886-964) and of the mortal lovers of goddesses and their children (965-1022).
