* ''{{Penelope}}'' has the titular Penelope receive a hundred plus year old curse on her family that their first born daughter would be ugly until she were accepted by "one of her own." This is why her parents went about trying to get her married, but it turns out [[spoiler: the curse can be interpreted as "when she accepts herself." As soon as she becomes okay with the idea that she's going to be ugly forever, and it's not a cause for angst, does the curse lift.]]

* Jack Russell a.k.a. ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'' inherited his werewolf curse from his father, who in turn got it from one of his ancestors who was bitten by a werewolf. However, because said ancestor was bitten after he had already fathered his children the curse remained dormant for a long time: though it was passed along none of his descendants actually became werewolves. This changed when Jack's father read the Darkhold, a TomeOfEldritchLore, which triggered the curse to become active.
