Subtrope of FamousAncestor. Generally found or at least claimed among those with BlueBlood, although [[MosesInTheBullrushes they may not initially know about it]].

* Luffy from ''Manga/OnePiece'' plays with this. Luffy's grandfather, Gasp, 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

* "InferiorFive" - inverted, as the comedy comic is dealing with the misadventures of the children of the ersatz Justice League - who are comically inept.

* ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'': Jaune's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all heroes. [[ButtMonkey Himself, not so much...]]

** ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The Wind Waker]]'' gets special mention because it [[spoiler:deliberately {{subverted|Trope}} the trope, revealing that its Link was not related to the Hero of Time's bloodline at all. Many of the powers that be doubt that he can save the day for precisely this reason, and Link proves them wrong]].

[[spoiler:However the fact that she herself is unaware she carries that lineage is the surprise]].

* From ''Franchise/StarWars'', the Skywalkers are a classic example. This is presumably also extended into the sequel trilogy with Rey as Luke's implied daughter. Her implied cousin is a totally different story.
