* In ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' this trope appears in most every game. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since its a farming game. Most games have your Father die, with you taking his place. One notable time where this 'didn't' happen was ''VideoGame/StoryOfSeasons'', where the PlayerCharacter, having been raised in a mostly Urban area, always wanted to be a farmer, so upon seeing an ad for working on a farm in the rural boondocks, you sprung at the chance.

** Hell, the whole ''VideoGame/RuneFactory'' franchise might count, being a spinoff of its sister-series, HarvestMoon. Both the protagonists and their neighbors across all games dabble in the battlefield as much as they do in the sowing field, with varying degrees of success.

* Lampshaded (and rejected) by Sameen Shaw in ''Series/PersonOfInterest''.

The Machine replies She knew [[BloodKnight exactly the kind of person Shaw was]] when She recruited her into Team Machine. [[spoiler:Sure enough, when the other members of Team Machine have died or retired, Shaw is shown eagerly accepting another Number.]]

** This is expanded on in the first episode of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', with Goku having become a farmer after his last bout of saving the world, in order to provide for his family. Later episodes establish that Goku is actually quite good at it and that his vegetables are very popular at the local farmer's market. However, while Goku himself doesn't mind farming and even gets some statisfaction out of it, he mainly does it to keep Chi-Chi from complaining and would actually like to train a bit more, often looking for ways to combine training and farming.
