** ''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.

This is continued in the ''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''.

* ''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.

* From ''Franchise/StarWars'', the Skywalkers are a classic example with Luke following in the footsteps of his Jedi Knight father, Anakin, and wielding an AncestralWeapon to fight the Empire. In the ''Legends'' continuity, he would eventually father many more heroic Skywalkers. His mother, Padme Amidala, was also a hero in her own right, fighting to save the people of Naboo from Trade Federation control, occasionally going on missions for the Republic in the Clone Wars and being a founding member of the group that becomes the Rebel Alliance. Her daughter Leia takes after her, becoming a key member of the Rebel Alliance, one of the founders of the New Republic and general of the Resistance. Unfortunately, [[spoiler: Leia's son]] preferred to [[InTheBlood follow in Darth Vaderís footsteps]]Ö
* ''Film/AssassinsCreed2016'': The Assassin heritage of Callum Lynch includes Aguilar de Nerha and his mother, Mary Lynch, who both suffered greatly to keep the Apple of Eden out of Templar hands. [[spoiler:Among the holograms that induct him into the Assassin Brotherhood, one of them appears to be [[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedUnity Arno Dorian.]]]]
