* Double subverted in the Hulu series ''Harlots''. Lucy doesn't want to become a whore like her mother and sister did, and to be fair, her mother Margaret didn't want her daughters to become whores either. It's just cruel fate that she has no choice but to become a whore.

Added DiffLines:

* In GirlsUndPanzer, the character Hana comes from a long line of artisans in the field of flower arrangement. When her mother finds out that her hands that had been used to create beautiful works were now stained with oil and rust, she literally passed out. However, Hana only half defies her mother in this: she does indeed want to continue her family's school, but she feels that she can only improve her art by stepping out and trying something new... like operating a tank. Her mother then kicks her out, only recognizing her after she demonstrates the fruits of her choice with a piece that she deems truly worthy.
* In the second season of NewGame, a new intern named Narumi is introduced whose parents run an inn. She desperately wants to be a programmer and make games together with her childhood friend, but her parents are adamant and eventually give her an ultimatum: if she fails to gain a full position at the central company she must come back and take over.

* In the Creator/DCComics {{Elseworld}} ''ComicBook/TheKingdom'' (a followup to ''ComicBook/KingdomCome''), [[TheFlash Wally West's]] son Barry has superspeed, and absolutely no interest in using it for anything in particular, much to Wally's despair. His concern with getting Barry to live up to his potential is one of the reasons Barry's sister, Iris "[[LegacyCharacter Kid Flash]]" West, [[WellDoneSonGuy feels unappreciated]].

* In a grandparent version of this trope, the anime/manga ''OnePiece'''s main character, [[DeterminAtor Monkey D. Luffy]] blatantly refuses throughout his life to become a Marine like his grandfather. Same goes for his big brother, Ace. This has both [[HilarityEnsues hilarious]] and serious outcomes.

to:

* [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} Cassandra Cain]] had to deal with this ''twice''. Her biological father David wanted her to become the ultimate assassin, and carry on his legacy. He essentially saw her as an extension of his own work. Even though her adopted father [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] is [[HappilyAdopted a better parent than David in every way]], he still often falls into this trope, projecting his own issues and motivations onto Cassandra, something which her [[ParentalSubstitute surrogate mother]] Barbara Gordon confronts him on several times.
