* Subverted in a big way in the original ''Franchise/StarWars'' trilogy. Obi-Wan's [[FromACertainPointOfView choice of words]] regarding [[DisappearedDad Luke Skywalker's father]] led Luke to believe that Darth Vader, the main bad guy of the series, was one of these (by way of APupilOfMineUntilHeTurnedToEvil), and that he betrayed and murdered his father Anakin Skywalker. [[ItWasHisSled But as those of us who know the saga know]], [[LukeIAmYourFather Anakin and Vader are one and the same]].

[[ItWasHisSled But as those of us who know the saga know]], [[LukeIAmYourFather Anakin and Vader are one and the same]]. Of course, Anakin didn't go into Jedi training planning on overthrowing them; in fact, he was the "chosen one" who was corrupted by Palpatine's grooming and deception, eventually turning Anakin against his master. But it still stands.
