* In ''Literature/{{Maresi}}'', a group of men [[RapePillageAndBurn attacked]] the abbey. One of the women, [[spoiler: Eostre]], who sacrificed herself so the others would not be raped, gives birth to a child. She loves her daughter and seems to cope with the trauma really well.

A subtrope of RapeAsBackstory reliant on the InverseFertilityLaw. Namely, a character is conceived through rape. Common in {{Fanfic}}, particularly among MarySue characters. In fiction, children conceived by rape are sometimes considered to be "tainted", especially in {{horror}} movies where they often grow up to be either deformed BastardBastard killers or straight up monsters. However, equally common for a fictional serial killer in the horror genre is, if they are conceived via rape, for their conception to be used as a FreudianExcuse, as if either their upbringing or the idea that the rapist [[UnfortunateImplications somehow managed to inject evil into their DNA]] lead the serial killer character to murder.

* In the AlternateHistory Edo Japan of ''Manga/{{Ooku}}: the Inner Chambers'', Shogun Iemitsu raped a passing commoner girl one night just to prove he could bed a woman if he wanted to. Since his other bed partners were all teenage boys, when he died of the [[{{Gendercide}} Red-Faced Pox]] a decade later, his illegitimate daughter became the only hope for keeping the Tokugawa direct line in power and avoiding a SuccessionCrisis civil war that would drive the country to collapse. Iemitsu's [[ElCidPloy death was hidden]] and his daughter secretly imprisoned in Edo Castle to produce [[HeirClubForMen a male heir]]. In a ''second'' instance of this trope, she was raped and impregnated by a castle guard. Her daughter died in infancy.

** Sakyo's two older children are strongly implied to be this, as their mother [[spoiler: is also ''his'' [[ParentalIncest mother]]]] and he was quite eager to leave and join Ienobu's household.

* Quite common in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' as rape can double as a form of greeting in some cultures. One child, after being told he was a child of rape, at first misunderstood this to mean that was his father's name. Perhaps the most disturbing of such cases are the Children of the Dead Seed in the third book, ''Literature/MemoriesOfIce''. The mothers were willing, the fathers were already dead...

* Quite common This happens quite often in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' as rape can double as ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', but then again, it's a form of greeting in some cultures. One child, after being told he was a child of rape, at first misunderstood this to mean that was his father's name. Perhaps big series.
** In ''Literature/MemoriesOfIce'',
the most disturbing of such cases are the so called Children of the Dead Seed are the products of women who have gone mad due to cannibalism taking to the battle field and having their way with the corpses of very recently dead or dieing soldiers, based on how the soldiers' bodies would release a last portion of semen upon death. Anaster, in particular, is the product of such a situation and it is heavily implied that he has no soul and becomes a violent cannibal thanks to that.
** In ''Literature/MidnightTides'', Rud Elalle is the product of his goddess mother raping Udinaas, a human slave, to get at the wyval blood he is temporarily infected with at that time. Since she then drops off her child in a community of [[AllCavemenWereNeanderthals Imass]] to be raised, though, Rud becomes a very friendly, caring youth willing to stand up to his own mother to protect those who raised him.
** In ''Literature/TheBonehunters'', Scillara gives birth to a child which was conceived by rape during the Whirldwind Rebellion. She used to be a prostitute
in the third book, ''Literature/MemoriesOfIce''. The mothers were willing, Whirlwind Army camp, but RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil, and she cannot abide to keep the fathers were already dead...child and leaves it to some villagers to care for.
** In ''Literature/TollTheHounds'', Harllo is introduced, who was conceived by a high ranking officer raping Stonny Menackis during the siege of Capustan. She is not beating about the bush concerning her revulsion regarding the child, and Harllo, being five by this point, actually thought for a long time that Rape was his father's name.
** In ''Literature/TheCrippledGod'', Korlat makes a vague statement about not being a pure-blooded Tiste Andii, and her mother's, Sandalath's, point of view heavily implied that Korlat was conceived by rape. ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'', the prequel, confirms that Korlat is the product of [[MysticalPregnancy mystical rape]] resulting in ThatThingIsNotMyChild from her mother's point of view. Korlat is influenced by this even millenia later and is not able to face her mother again despite being a respected figure among the Tiste Andii because she was unable to prevent her brother's death, whom Sandalath had charged her to protect no matter what as punishment for being a child by rape.

* ''WordsWorth'': All evidence strongly suggests that [[LadyOfBlackMagic Maria's]] daughter, [[IdenticalGrandson Miyu]], was the result of having been raped by Astral 20 years prior. Miyu's age of 18 places her around the time she would have been conceived, plus, Maria is unwed and isn't said to have been with anyone else since the incident with Astral. Further, he and Maria are believed to be the biological offspring of Pollux and his wife, also named Maria. Meaning, [[BrotherSisterIncest Maria was raped by her biological brother]][[note]][[SeparatedAtBirth without either of them knowing they were related]] by blood[[/note]] and gave birth to their daughter/niece.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Although not explicitly stated, it's pretty clear Gilly's son Sam is conceived this way, along with the other children Craster fathers on his wives (especially since they're [[ParentalIncest his daughters as well]]). No doubt he [[MaritalRapeLicense would not view it as rape]].

* In the original version of the ''Anime/PrettyCure'' fan fic, ''FanFic/TwilightPrettyCure'', [[HairTriggerTemper Marina]] [[HotBlooded Asagi]] was born from her mother being raped by a notorious criminal. Thankfully, her mother went to great lengths to raise her all by herself and loves her very much. However, Marina does get bullied at school because her classmates assume that because she's the daughter of a criminal, she'll grow up to be just like him no matter what, and they don't listen even as Marina tries to convince them otherwise. After reader complaints, Marina's backstory was altered so that her father was a corrupt politician instead, to take out the RapeAsBackstory element but to leave in the idea that people would bully her because her father was a criminal.
