If the child in question is a HeroicBastard, then they may fear or angst about the possibility of [[InTheBlood being tainted by their parent's crimes]]. Especially if the victim [[AbusiveParents mistreats or refuses to love their child]] on the basis that ThatThingIsNotMyChild. Some such children go on to [[RapeAndRevenge avenge themselves and their victimized parent upon the perpetrator]]. Even if the child is able to make peace with their origin, parental mistreatment or [[DarkAndTroubledPast abuse]] might result in the child resenting his or her parents -- or the situation can be flipped: even when the child is loved and assured by their parent, the child might angst about their conception. In other cases, the parent loves and accepts their child and while the child may have difficulty coming to terms with this trope, they are eventually able to do so. If the child's conception is well-known, then [[HumansAreBastards society at large]] might ostracize the victimized parent, [[LoserSonOfLoserDad their child]], or both for being "tainted".

* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': Hope became Schlottman becomes pregnant by Kilgrave, who raped as a result of [[MindRape her using time under]] Kilgrave's control. When she realizes this, she tries to miscarry by having Jessica give her money so that she can pay an inmate to beat her up. When that fails, Jessica and Jeri arrange to give Hope abortion drugs. This is undoubtedly for the better, because [[GeniusBonus readers of the comics]] will know that children of Kilgrave inherited his power.mind control abilities.

* In ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', Princesses Melpomene and Hymnia were enslaved and raped. Melpomene became pregnant with Adagio Dazzle and Hymnia became pregnant with Aria Blaze. Then Melpomene was raped again ''while she was pregnant'' and became pregnant again with Sonata Dusk (the author noted that this can actually happen in real life). The two then escaped their captors. Adagio was born first, then Aria, and then Sonata a month after Adagio's birth.

* Yet another ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' example with Jackson Overland from ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12506800/3/The-Unrelenting-Frozen-Seas-The-Trials The Unrelenting Frozen Seas: The Trials]]'', whose mother Khione took a fancy for the demigod Jamie Overland, keeping him imprisoned several months before releasing him a broken and traumatized mess who was DrivenToSuicide when he learned his violation has produced offspring. Apollo - Jamie's father - almost killed the kid when he tried to meet his grandmother but stayed his hand as he acknowledged Jack was innocent, letting him go after threatening him. When the boy asks his mother is she truly did it, she bluntly confirms it. [[BreakTheCutie Jack doesn't take it well.]]

Common in {{Fanfic}}, particularly among Mary Sue 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]] led the serial killer character to murder.

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 [[UnfortunateImplications writers don't let that get in the way of their horror movie plot.]]

* ''Trishna'', a modern reimagining of ''Literature/TessOfTheDUrbervilles'' set in India, features the titular main character (just like her book counterpart) being raped by a British businessman (in this case of South Asian ancestry). She becomes pregnant, but has an abortion, rather than like the book where Tess gives birth but her baby dies early in childhood. [[spoiler: She also murders her rapist later to escape him, but then kills herself in guilt at the end.]]
