* Strongly implied in ''Webcomic/{{Blindsprings}}'': Princess Tamaura is the youngest child and the only redhead in her family. She is also a strong nexus of Orphic power in an imperial line that is clearly dying out and the AltText describes her as raised in a cloister. Her older sister Ariana is enraged that Tamaura has usurped her place as the high priestess, a position that appears to be reserved for the youngest child. All of this leads to a lot of muttering about "Bastards at Court" behind her back where she can hear it.

* In Manga/SensualPhrase, this is the backstory of Sakuya. His mother was raped by a white man, so when she found out she was pregnant, she decided to wait to see what the baby looked like. If it looked like her husband, she'd keep it; if not, she'd give it up for adoption and lie that it was stillborn. The baby came out Asian, so she called her husband to come away from his work overseas... but when the baby opened his eyes, they were blue. Since she didn't want to tell her husband about the rape, he thought she had cheated on him, and threw her out.

* The Literature/SherlockHolmes story "The Adventure of the Yellow Face" has a widow who remarries and then keeps sneaking off to a cottage and won't tell her husband why. He naturally suspects her of having an affair, but it turns out that what she never told him was that her first husband was black (American); the resident of the cottage is their daughter, who she'd told him was also dead. Leads to a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming [[FairForItsDay by the standards of the times]] when the second husband accepts the child immediately, and a CrowningMomentOfFunny in that [[DidntSeeThatComing Holmes didn't come CLOSE to guessing that one.]]

The fact that Borte fell pregnant with him around the time of her kidnapping doesn't help matters, and Chagatai takes great pleasure in telling everybody that Jochi is a 'Tartar bastard'.

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Joy's second child, Earl Jr., was black, despite Joy and Earl both being white (Joy's first child, Dodge, was conceived before they met so he was always treated as not being Earl's biological son). Earl was too shocked at first to really get upset and Joy tried to explain that Earl might have had a "repressed Black gene" in his lineage from his great-grandmother. Earl doesn't really believe it, and asks the doctor to confirm his suspicions (which the doctor does, in no uncertain terms.)

You kind of feel sorry for the guy when he breaks down crying, even if you can't help but wonder how this got past him in the first place.

** The Sims 3 is a little better at mixing genes of parents together, since it operates on either-or range sliders rather than an either-or default skintone assignment. Meaning, two parents of the same range slider can have a child that is the average of slide values on that same slider. Hair color, however, operates on a LamarckWasRight basis. And is also prone to weird bugs.

His siblings are proto-DesignerBabies, created from ova and sperm taken from donors immune to ThePlague, whereas he was unplanned and natural (when he is depressed, he describes himself as "a mistake"). While Reynir has no doubt that his family loves him, he resents the fact that he isn't immune, and therefore can't do a lot of things his older siblings can.

* Played with in the FurryBasketballAssociation: ''WebOriginal/FurryBasketballAssociation'': Bruce Bounder's mother is a hare, and when she got pregnant by one of her [[ReallyGetsAround many boyfriends]], [[ShotgunWedding she gets married to the suspected father]], who is rabbit. When Bruce is born, he's pure hare, which means his mother got married to the wrong guy. His father is not pleased and never forgives Bruce for it, going so far as [[IHaveNoSon refusing to allow Bruce to use his patronymic.]] Bruce refuses to put his girlfriend's kids through the same thing and is a dad to both of them, even though he knows one isn't his for similar reasons.



* Done in a somewhat literal way as a gag in the WarnerBros cartoon ''Porky's Poppa'' (1938), where Porky, "delivering" swaddled bottles of milk from a cow, discreetly overlooks the chocolate one.
* Joseph Gribble on ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill,'' who has obvious Native American features despite both his parents supposedly being white. His "father" Dale, usually an [[ConspiracyTheorist overly-suspicious nut]], is completely oblivious to the fact that his wife has been cheating with her "massage therapist" John Redcorn for the majority of their marriage. When Peggy learns of the affair (one of the last people to do so, told by Hank, who'd up to this point assumed she'd been aware all along but, like everyone else, was keeping quiet), she mentions Nancy claiming that Dale's grandmother was Jamaican.
** His conspiracy theorizing eventually kicked in for his son, so now he "knows" that his son is... an ''alien''!!! [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Born by impregnating Nancy with stolen sperm. Stolen from Dale.]]
** On another occasion, he finally realizes that Joseph looks different, and has a [[PsychicDreamsForEveryone psychic dream]] where he sees an Indian man having sex with Nancy. His conclusion?
-->"I must be an Indian! That explains why I like tobacco so much! And hate the federal government so much!"

* A particularly warped version turns up on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy,'' in which Brian is thought to have impregnated Carter Pewterschmidt's prize-winning greyhound -- but when the puppies are born, they all look like ''Ted Turner.'' This is HilariousInHindsight since TBS and Creator/AdultSwim now syndicate ''Family Guy'', but did not at the time of the original airing.
** When Peter destroys his TV, he decides to create his own InUniverse sitcom where he fathered a black child, called [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWSCJ28Vp6w My Black Son]], who also happens to be a ninja.

* There's a historical anecdote about a white upper class woman who lived in West India in the 17th century. She gave birth to a black child that died shortly after birth - people put the blame on her drinking too much chocolate during her pregnancy. (So it was a real ChocolateBaby then.) Nobody ever suspected that the black male slave serving the chocolate to her bedroom might have had something to do with it.

He contacts the other people and invites them to their house to discuss the issue. When they come in, they're a black couple with a black kid ... and they think it's pretty funny.

* In the ''Series/BlackMirror'' episode "White Christmas", a white couple break up because she becomes pregnant and wants to have an abortion over his objections. In this world, however, a break-up can involved being "blocked", which means they can neither see nor hear each other, appearing only as outlines on each other's AugmentedReality [[ElectronicEyes eye implants]]. Seeing her outline is enough for him to realize she hadn't gone through with the abortion, and to know when she's had the baby (who is similarly blocked). He watches the child grow up for years, embittered that he was being kept from his own daughter. Eventually, the mother dies, lifting the block, and when he actually sees the girls for the first time, it's obvious one of her parents was East Asian.
