* Inverted in ''Franchise/StarWars'': Anakin Skywalker is implied to be created by a Sith Lord in order to wipe out the Jedi. The Jedi discover him and believe he's the Chosen One who's supposed to destroy the Sith, but he ultimately chooses not to (out of love) and instead destroys the Jedi, ''then'' (again because of love) chooses to destroy the Sith. The oddest prediction turns out to be the most accurate, that he would 'bring balance to the Force' by making both sides start again.

* Series/UltramanGeed is one such example, being the son of [[FallenHero Ultraman Belial]], who had wreaked chaos and had tried several times to destroy the Planet of Ultra. Geed, however, is heroic as they come.

* The Lucifuge faction from ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' are a group made up of exactly [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] descendants of {{Satan}}, who use their innate abilities to fight supernatural monsters. Including relatives who decided to [[FamilyBusiness work for Dad]].

* The Lucifuge faction from ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil'' are a group made up of exactly [[NumberOfTheBeast 666]] descendants of {{Satan}}, who use their innate abilities to fight supernatural monsters. Including (and ''especially'') relatives who decided to [[FamilyBusiness work for Dad]].Dad]]. Ironically given the source of their powers, they actually are one of the most reasonable factions of hunters in a setting where KnightTemplar is a norm, precisely ''because'' of their demonic powers: they know for a fact it's possible to have BadPowersGoodPeople, so they typically avoid assuming the monsters they meet are AlwaysChaoticEvil and carefully studies them before deciding the best course of action.

* ComicBook/{{Raven}} from ''Comicbook/TeenTitans''.''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' is the daughter of Trigon, a [[GodOfEvil god-like demon]] and DimensionLord who gave birth to her for the sole purpose of preparing his invasion of Earth. Her mother didn't approve, however, so she had her daughter raised in the city of Azarath, where she learnt to keep her demonic side in check. Raven eventually joined the titual team in an effort to fight her father.

* Merlin Satanspawn of Simon Green's ''{{Nightside}}'' series was born of the devil to be TheAntichrist, but he "refused the honor". Which isn't to say he's a nice guy by any definition, just that he's not his ''father's'' guy.
* Sam Linnfer from Catherine Webb's ''{{Waywalkers}}'' is literally {{Satan}}, shunned by gods, angels and humans alike for millennia. His divine power is immensely powerful and destructive but in the end [[spoiler: he uses it to save the universe, almost at the cost of his own existence.]] And people still hate him.

** In the final book, this turns out to be an apparent ''double'' subversion, as it turns out that Harry and Voldemort are [[spoiler: each descended from one of the three Peverell brothers.]] As such, though they are likely several generations removed, Harry and Voldemort are unknowningly ''distant'' '''''COUSINS'''''. Hints at this are laid out at least as far back as ''Half Blood Prince'', which sees Marvolo Gaunt blatantly mention the "Peverell coat of arms", and indicate that it at one point belonged to Slytherin or to someone related to him. Gaunt was very proud of his relation to Slytherin at the very least. The Peverell coat of arms (actually a symbol for [[spoiler: The Deathly Hallows]]) actually indicates that the Peverells did actually own said objects. While nobody knows if the brother who had gotten the Wand from Death had any children, we know that two of them did, and that each passed down their Hallows along the family bloodlines: [[spoiler: The Resurrection Stone and the Invisibility Cloak of Death]] each wound up in the hands of direct descendants of these two brothers at least up until Marvolo's time, as he still possessed it. Presumably after his death the ring ended up in the hands of his son Morfin. At that point, Voldemort got hold of his ancestor's heirloom without ever knowing what he actually had after murdering his uncle. The other wound up in Harry's hands and he ultimately gained mastery of all three. This would have made him 'Master of Death' which sounds like it might be something akin to an anti-christ itself. And Harry rejects this as much as he rejected the idea of being the heir of Slytherin. Unlike Harry, Voldemort fully embraced the idea. However due to their very distant relationship, Harry actually ''could'' be considered to be an heir to Slytherin, though not necessarily the heir that would open the Chamber. Technically, he did do so, but he did it in order to rescue Ginny from Voldemort. Though Harry realizes his connection to the brother who originally owned his cloak, he never seems to put that together with his distant relation to Voldemort, since the Gaunts, and later Voldemort himself, are also descended from the Peverells. Voldemort, who knew nothing of the legend of the Hallows, never even has the issue cross his mind. So on one hand, we have the anti-anti-christ (Harry, Master of Death, who could have been a possible Heir of Slytherin due to his distant relation to the man), and on the other, the anti-christ (Voldemort, who legitimately ''was'' and ''embraced'' being the Heir of Slytherin). The fact that this ends up being revealed as a FamilyFeud, despite neither side knowing it, makes the situation that much stranger.
