* Most RealLife adoptions fall in this category.
* Some people either have no change in their relationship with their family, or take consolation in the fact that they share no genes with their family; it can be nice to be able to joke about family shortcomings by including the fact that you're not blood relatives. On a more sober note, it does also allow for one to be able to think things like "these people love me more than my own blood". And to reciprocate that. Blood may be thicker than water, but "kin" is thicker than blood.
** That phrase is actually surprisingly appropriate. The full phrase is something closer to "The blood of fellowship is thicker than the water of the womb." - The people you make voluntary and mutual bonds with can be far more loyal than people you are merely related to by happenstance.
** It's also amusing for an adoptee to have someone who doesn't know you're adopted comment on the "obvious" family resemblance to your parents.



* Most pets fall under this category.

** Elyon, Queen of Meridian, was raised by Miriadel and Alborn shortly after her birth, but didn't know she was adopted until they explained this much later. In the end, she accepts them as her actual parents. And given that their natural appearance is disconcerting makes Elyon's acceptance that much more heartwarming.

* In ComicBook/{{Shazam}} of the ComicBook/{{New 52}}, Billy Batson certainly does not count as this, but it's definitely played straight with his new adoptive siblings Freddy, Mary, Pedro, Eugene and Darla. While a variety of ages and personalities, they all love and are devoted to each other and to their adoptive parents, the Vasquezes. [[spoiler:Billy eventually warms up to his new family though. Sharing his power with them helps.]]

** In [[WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002 the 2002 reboot]], it was hinted that Man-At-Arms actually ''is'' her biological father, but doesn't know it. However, it was ''also'' hinted that Man-At-Arms's brother Fisto might be Teela's real father. The show was cancelled before the viewers could find out which one of these were the truth.

* LetsPlay/{{Lucahjin}} is this in RealLife, but it became relevant to her Let's Plays when she played ''SuperPaperMario.'' The scene where [[spoiler: Luvbi learns that her parents were not her biological parents, and resents learning of this]] hit especially close to home for her, and she mentions that, as an adopted child herself, such discussion on the nature of family tends to make her especially weepy. [[TearJerker And it did.]]
