In older works, this can be seen as a SpaceWhaleAesop: Don't cheat on your partner and have bastard children, because they will be evil. In these cases, the bastard's evilness can be a a sort of [[LamarckWasRight Moral Lamarckism]]--that the [[SinsOfOurFathers moral failings of your forebears]] express themselves in a taint on your own soul or karmic bank balance.

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler: Reiner Braun]] from ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' turns out to be one of MixedAncestry, with enormous issues stemming from not having a father. Raised by a controlling and resentful mother, they ''actually'' thought they were a HeroicBastard that was going to reunite their broken family through their heroism. These fantasies of a happy family and glory as a champion of good were slowly and systematically ripped to shreds, leading to a downward spiral of SanitySlippage and self-hatred. [[spoiler: While not high-born, he was led to believe that becoming a Warrior would mean getting to live outside the ghettos with his Marleyan father. Instead, Reiner is completely rejected by the man who insists the "Eldian devils" are plotting to kill him and his ''real'' family by exposing his past indiscretion to the authorities]].

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': In Westerosi society, bastard children are often mistrusted as they are thought to be be born of lust and deceit and believed to have a vested interest in their trueborn siblings' demise. Although {{Heroic Bastard}}s Jon Snow and Gendry Waters subvert this, Joffrey Baratheon and Ramsay Snow play it straight.

* ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' has a lot, especially Cormyr-related: Obarskyrs tend to be rather passionate in general, but due to the [[HandsomeLech attitude and habits]] of Azoun IV an ''absurd'' amount of Cormyrean young nobles (and not only them) [[http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/rl/20061101a look embarrassingly alike]]. Some joined one of the coups, some are loyal to the official Obarskyr line's rule. ''Champions of Valor'' even had it as one of alternative backgrounds, whereby "Bastard of Azoun" comes across as comparable in spread with "Bardic tutelage" or "Monastery Orphan".

Although given that the background was printed in a book dedicated to rules for ''heroic'' characters, [[HeroicBastard the subversion]] is probably far more common.

* [[TallDarkAndSnarky Marcello]] of ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'' straddles the line between this and HeroicBastard. Born to a philandering rich guy who ''almost'' made him his heir, only to ditch him and his mother after his '''wife''' gave him a son, Marcello ''does'' work tirelessly to claw his way above the stigmata of his social station, and ''does'' manage to make a name for himself… unfortunately, he does so by playing into the [[CorruptChurch corrupt factions of the]] [[SaintlyChurch Church of the Goddess]]. Eventually, he goes sailing over the MoralEventHorizon with eyes wide open by [[spoiler: assassinating the Pope and stealing his station]], robbing him of any sympathy... [[DracoInLeatherPants for most people]].

* [[spoiler: Gremy Toto]] from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' ''miiiiiiight'' be this. He certainly ''is'' a bastard, but the "''miiiiiiight''" part comes from how it's speculated that [[spoiler: while he claims to be a clone of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gihren Zabi]], he may actually be his bastard son.]]
