* Luffy from ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays with this. Luffy's grandfather, Garp, is a well-known marine hero who nearly cornered Gold Roger several times. At the same time his father, Dragon, is the most wanted criminal in the world trying to overthrow the government. Among fans, Dragon counts as a hero given that the the government is corrupted and run by {{Jerkass}}es

* Played with ''Anime/PokemonIChooseYou''. Verity is the daughter of the great and powerful [[spoiler:Sinnoh champion Cynthia]]. She however doesn't share her mother's amazing Pokémon battling skills and feels in her mother's shadow. Despite this, she still ends up on an adventure in ''I Choose You'' and meets several legendary Pokémon.

* Possible in ''TabletopGame/Dungeons&Dragons'', or any tabletop RPG where you generate a character, save for any games where heroism is virtually nonexistent. Your character can come from a long line of heroes. You could even start a heroic lineage with one character and gennerate your next character as their offspring. Being the child of a high level adventurer has benefits. (Don't know if this one can count so if it disappears, I guess it doesn't)

* The entire concept behind ''ComicStrip/ThePhantom'' is that the title is passed from father to son through generations, inspiring the legend that the Phantom is immortal. This is continued in the movie ''Film/ThePhantom'', the animated incarnations (including the {{Avengers}} rip-off ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'' and the futuristic ''WesternAnimation/Phantom2040'') and the not so succesful TV Show ''Series/ThePhantom''.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' and in the [[Film/{{Watchmen}} movie adaptation]] the Silk Spectre is a title hold first by Sally Jupiter and then by his daughter Laurie.

* In ''WesternAnimation/DefendersOfTheEarth'', the heroes ComicStrip/FlashGordon, ComicStrip/ThePhantom, [[ComicStrip/MandrakeTheMagician Mandrake and Lothar]] are each depicted with a son or daughter preparing to become part of their heroic legacy. (So is the BigBad, only not so much with the heroic part.)
* In ''WesternAnimation/Phantom2040'', the protagonist learns that he is part of a heroic lineage that has been passed down from father to son from generations; his aunt, who raised him after his father was killed in action, didn't tell him about it because she was afraid he would TurnOutLikeHisFather.

* Terry [=McGuillis=] in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' is the son of Bruce Wayne, the original Batman, though not exactly by the traditional means, he's a clon made by nanotechnology.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' has a variant with Link, in that while he is not clearly either a descendant or reincarnation or a previous Hero, he ''is'' descended from a line of Hylian knights. Yunobo is a more straightforward example, being a descendant of the Goron Champion, Daruk.

** Later, it's revealed that every human player's caretaker is, in fact, their own heroic ancestor. [[spoiler: And they are this for said ancestors in the alternate timeline, making each and every one of them MyOwnGrandpa.]] [[MindScrew And now your head hurts.]]

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' deconstructs this trope as the film is about a family of Superheroes and the problems that this can bring into the family, especially to the children.
