# She gives birth to an a Eurasian child and keeps it secret from the father.



In the [[MartialArtsMovie martial arts genre]], she exists primarily only for angst and to give birth to an Eurasian child with l33t martial arts skills. She may have some sort of twisted motive (actually depending on the [[CrapsackWorld society]] that person lives in it might be [[ParentsInDistress an entirely reasonable and sensible choice]]) for conceiving her child, such as providing an heir for a powerful male relative or to train to be the perfect killer. Basically, when you combine Exotic DragonLady and [[MySecretPregnancy Secret Pregnancy]], you get Asian Babymama. UnfortunateImplications may follow.

* In ''Series/KingOfTheHill'', Cotton had a romance with a Japanese nurse, Michiko, during the final days of World War II. Unlike the usual connotations of this trope where one of the lovers is using the other, their romance was real and Michiko is the only woman [[StrawMisogynist Cotton]] truly loved and respected. In the two-parter "Returning Japanese," the Hill family travels to Japan so that Cotton can reconnect with his old love, and it turned out he fathered a child with her, Hank's older half-brother Junichiro.

* ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' part 4 uses this trope as the origin of new protagonist Josuke Higashikata. His father is Joseph Joestar, while his mother is some Japanese woman that he had a one night stand with at some point in the past (which technically makes Josuke Jotaro's uncle, despite the latter being ''13 years older'' than the former). Notable for being an extremely rare Japanese example.

* Played with and averted in the ''{{Seinfeld}}'' episode "The Understudy". Whilst stationed in Korea, Frank Costanza has a brief affair with a Korean woman. However the relationship never gets very far because he refuses to take off his shoes whilst in her parents' house, which they see as disrespectful. It turns out she is living in New York by the point of the series, something which was completely unknown to either of them. She works in a manicure parlor. Elaine brought Frank to the parlor because he speaks fluent Korean and she had suspicions the Koreans were insulting her in their language. It turned out she was right, as they ended up insulting Frank too, which led to him shouting at them, leading his ex-girlfriend to recognise his voice.

** From ComicBook/{{X-Men}}, Iceman's ex-girlfriend Opal once resurfaced with a baby she said was his. Turned out it wasn't, and she was just using the baby as a lure to make him help her with her drama.
