* ''{{Series/Andromeda}}'' combines this with DoubleStandardRapeSciFi. It's even called "rape" in-universe. The species known as "The Magog" reproduce this way and ''only'' this way. In addition to being cannibals, and feeding on other sentient species, their bites can, and do, "infest" any victim they chow upon. If they don't feel like eating their victims, they can just bite them, and then simply sit back and wait for the larva to hatch and rip their way out from the inside. Surgical removal of the larva is not an option as the larva wrap themselves around vital organs and will kill the host upon any attempt to remove them by normal means. (It essentially takes bending the rules of space-time to succeed.)

If the child in question is a HeroicBastard, than expect him to be fearful/angstful of the possibility of [[IntheBlood his being tainted by his parent's crimes]]. Especially if the victim [[AbusiveParent mistreats him or refuses to love him]] on the basis that ThatThingIsNotMyChild. Some such children go on to [[RapeAndRevenge avenge themselves and their victimized parent upon the perpetrator]].

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 frequently considered to be "tainted", especially in {{horror}} movies where they usually grow up to be either deformed BastardBastard killers or straight up monsters. Although, equally common for a fictional serial killer is for his being born of rape to instead be a FreudianExcuse which causes audience to understand how his upbringing led him to murder, as if the rapist managed to inject the properties of pure evil through the DNA.

Considering that MaritalRapeLicense was pretty much TruthInTelevision in all patriarchal countries at some point in history, there is plenty of proof that a child by rape usually ''won't'' turn out more evil than any other child, but writers don't let that get in the way of their horror movie plot.

* The ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' remake has Perseus being conceived by a BedTrick as punishment for daring to challenge the gods. Zeus disguises himself as King Acrisius and sleeps with his queen, who gives birth almost immediately. Acrisius still has it in for Perseus, even though it wasn't his fault.

* ''Literature/WingsOfFire'': Winter the [=IceWing=] dragon doesn't go into too much detail about it considering its demographic, but [[AncientEvil Darkstalker]]'s [=NightWing=] mother kidnapped his [=IceWing=] father and forced him to have him in order to have the [=NightWings=] get the [=IceWings'=] animus powers. Though it turns out in the ''Darkstalker'' special edition that they were actually in love, but the [=IceWings=] assumed no prince of their tribe would ever be in love with a [=NightWing=] dragon.

* In Linda Castillo's ''The Dead Will Tell'' it turns out that the murderer, Ruth aka Hannah, is probably one of these, since her Amish mother Wanetta Hochstetler was abducted, raped and left for dead after a botched home invasion and robbery that resulted in the deaths of her husband and all but one of her children (though the latter's deaths turn out to have been because of an overturned lantern causing a fire), and after she was found and nursed back to health it was discovered that Wanetta was pregnant, and she never returned home or let her one living child, William, know she was still alive [[DefiledForever out of shame at what had happened to her]] and because he had unintentionally left the lantern that caused the fire and his mother held him responsible. Ruth maintains that her father is her mother's murdered husband, but Wanetta at least believed she was actually this trope and verbally abused her. After Wanetta dies Ruth goes on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the perpetrators and tracks down and murders them, and to accomplish this she goes so far as to marry William with the intent of {{Gaslighting}} him for his role in the deaths of his other siblings. It's vaguely implied she succeeds in this by telling him their [[SurpriseIncest true relationship]] which causes him to [[DrivenToSuicide take his own life]]. Protagonist Kate finally causes Ruth's unbothered demeanor to crack after being caught by pointing out that she's a dead ringer for the only rapist she hadn't yet killed, which normally would be a KickTheDog moment but given everything Ruth has done comes off as KickTheSonOfABitch instead.
