* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' has [[spoiler: Ash's father. Over the course of several chapters, he had been built as a member of the Seven Brothers of Orre, a career criminal, a sociopath who has no qualms about sleeping with thousands of women to sire hundreds of bastard children, and the more it's revealed about him, [[HateSink the more despicable he becomes]]. The biggest twist comes in [[WhamEpisode Chapter 34]], where it's revealed to the audience (though not to Ash), that he's none other than the ''Bloodline King''.]]

* In ''WebComic/TowerOfGod'', Koon Aguero Agnes's ultimate goal is to defeat his father Koon Eduan and take his place as the head of the family. That's no mean goal considering that the heads of the Ten Families are PhysicalGods with CompleteImmortality. The background for Aguero's desire to overthrow his father is revealed very slowly, but when Aguero meets a stored memory of his father's younger self, who seems like a broadly all right guy, he tells him that he'd probably run away if he met his older self.

** The children of the Aerie family who used a spell to become one and became the Slayer of FUG known as White were likewise trying to best their overbearing father. FUG is an organisation dedicated to destroying [[GodEmperor Zahard]] and the leaders of the Ten Families, and each Slayer targets a particular one of them.
** Another Slayer of FUG, Karaka, targets King Zahard -- and seems to be his illegitimate son.

* As it turns out, The Daughters of Aku from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' are ''literally'' the daughters that Aku, spawned from the black essence that the High Priestess drank including Ashi herself. This unfortunately allowed Aku to brainwash her against Jack and causing the latter to surrender in defeat, unwilling to harm the woman he loves.

* [[CloningBlues Otto's]] "father", of the ''Literature/HIVESeries'' is Overlord, a homicidal AI who created a human vessel, his own son, to take over so that he would have a strong young body to rule the world with. Otto, for obvious reasons, isn't ok with Overlord's GrandTheftMe, so the two spend books three through six duking it out. Otto comes out on top, albeit with much emotional damage and longing for a family that isn't trying to kill him.

* ''Literature/{{Dune}}'': Baron Vladimir Harkonnen turns out to be an archnemesis "grandpa" to Paul and Alia Atreides. Possibly a more straightforward example with the Baron and their mother, Lady Jessica, given that he tried to kill her and her son, not that he knew she was his natural daughter.

* In ''Literature/PeterPan'' is a common tradition since the first presentations that the actor who plays Wendy's father is the same who plays Captain Hook. This was included in some movies, particulary the British ''Film/PeterPan'' of 2003 with Creator/JasonIsaacs on both roles. Whether this tend to symbolize that is AllJustADream in Wendy's head using [[AndYouWereThere his father's image for antagonist]] depends on the viewer.
