* ''Film/BabyMama'' actually has the inverse with a court ordered maternity test. The premise of the movie was that a surrogate mother is artificially impregnated using the other woman's egg and her own husband's sperm. The test is because she has the child rather late after the egg was inserted and it's unclear who the biological mother is.

* The titular heroine of ''Series/VeronicaMars'' suspects at one point that her real father is her ex-boyfriend Duncan's dad, so she runs a paternity test, which [[UnReveal she shreds without reading]], deciding she doesn't need to know. Later in the season, Keith Mars has his own test done, [[spoiler:which confirms that he is, after all, her real father]].

This is also why [[spoiler:Duncan doesn't talk about the night he and Veronica (who was drunk and roofied at the time) had sex for the first time. He assumes it's because both of them are ashamed of BrotherSisterIncest. In fact, Veronica simply doesn't remember]].

It is discovered that a character, or a baby, has a parent whose identity is not known. Solution? Get a DNA test. Prove beyond [[MamasBabyPapasMaybe a reasonable doubt]] who the father really is, and proceed from there. All the other guys who aren't the dad can go home. Well, unless the real daddy is a GlorifiedSpermDonor and the fake one has actually been there for the kid their whole life. In which case, go take a hike sperm daddy.

* Very irritatingly avoided in ''Anime/PleaseTwins''. They explain that it "costs too much money"... the episode before they win a lot of money and blow it on a HotSpringsEpisode.

** Led to a CrowningMomentOfFunny when a young mother brought no fewer than a half dozen possible fathers onto the show for testing. After a long drawn-out process of discussing her lifestyle and her complicated parenting situation, the results come back and...'''none''' of them are the father! Like a pack of hounds, all the tested would-be fathers round shouting at the girl. ''"There's even more?!"''

** Of course many many seasons later it was revealed that [[spoiler: The whole thing was a ruse, Cartman's mother is actually biologically female, and Cartman's father is Scott Tenorman's father, who Cartman had killed and tricked Scott into eating in a bowl of chili]].

The reason they hid the truth was because Tenorman was a member of the Denver Broncos and the townspeople didn't want to ruin the team's good season by distracting them with an illegitimate child scandal]].

* ''BatmanAndSons'' mentions that Bruce is taking care of baby Terry, but not baby Damien, because [[spoiler: Catwoman]] thought to do a DNA test before handing over her kid, whereas Talia keeps Damian to herself and just keeps sending him bills.
* In ''SomethingPositive'', [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Davan]] has SexForSolace with the ex-girlfriend of his friend who recently committed suicide. Years later, the two meet up again and Davan finds out she had a son named [[BrattyHalfPint Rory]], whose father is either Davan or the man she dated shortly after their tryst. The test shows that Davan isn't the father, but LawOfInversePaternity kicks in and he becomes Rory's ParentalSubstitute anyway.
