* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', it's all but stated that Ash is illegitimate, which is confirmed in [[ExpandedUniverse a later sidestory]]. [[spoiler: And the story strongly implies that he's just one of many, perhaps in the ''hundreds'', who share the same father and same status as Heroic Bastards, along with a few Bastard Bastards and some in-between]].

* In keeping with TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples: "The Bastard", Philip Faulconbridge, in ''Theatre/KingJohn'' is a sort of [[IdenticalGrandson avatar]] of his father, UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionHeart. Richard's old enemy Leopold of Austria is conflated by Shakespeare with the Viscount of Limoges, and appears wearing Richard's own personal lion-skin (!), which Faulconbrige takes back after slaying him.

* ''Literature/OrkneyingaSaga'': Einar, later to become Jarl of Orkney, is the son of Jarl Rognvald of Møre with a slave-born woman. Though Rognvald does not deny Einar, he makes clear that he does not care for him and considers him an unworthy offspring on account of his mother's low status. Nevertheless Einar frees Orkney from the vikings that have occupied it, proves to be a capable ruler, and when Rognvald is treacherously killed, ironically Einar is the son who avenges him.

* Kit Sakura, the red ranger in ''Power Rangers: Shuriken Force''. She explicitly asks her father why they don't have the same last name, and he's rather blunt in telling Kit that he and her mother had a LongDistanceRelationship and neither were up for it. Kit has...''issues'' with this.

* In Creator/ChristopherMoore's novel ''Fool'', an AffectionateParody of ''Theatre/KingLear'', [[spoiler: the protagonist Pocket, the titular character, discovers he's the illegitimate son of Lear's brother. The news is not very well received as he learns this in a vision that also reveals that his conception was the result of Lear forcing his brother to rape Pocket's mother after the brother idly mentions he finds her attractive, all just to prove the point that, as king, he had the right to. The other noble bastard in the story, Edmund of Gloucester, is decidedly not heroic.]]
