** Lords as a whole universally qualify. The [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral 4th game]] makes this an actual game mechanic: characters who are descendants of one of the Twelve Crusaders [[spoiler:or the Dark God Loptous]] receive boosts to their growth rates, weapon levels, and can even use their respective ancestor's AncestralWeapon in certain conditions.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', Chrom and the rest of his family are distant descendants of the "Hero-King" Marth, the main lord of the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia first and third games]] in the series.

* 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'' alternative continuity, he would eventually father many more heroic Skywalkers.

* ChristopherLee could trace his ancestry all the way back to Charlemagne himself, and was actually a spy in World War II alongside Ian Fleming. On the set of The Lord of the Rings, he didn't mind telling Peter Jackson just how a stabbed person would die.

** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has the Royal Families of both Hoshido and Nohr, descendants of the Dusk or Dawn Dragons that shaped their world. That lets them use, among others, Sacred Weapons (locked to some of them of course) and [[GeoEffects Dragon Veins.]]

* Flash Sentry has one in ''Fanfic/TheBridge'', being from the Sentry family which includes many legendary and heroic royal guards and police officers. Flash worries he's failing at living up the legacy, but it is shown his heart is in the right place for being focused on helping others.

** The Sage, through his two sons, is also the ancestor of the two founding clans of the Hidden Leaf Village; the Uchiha (whose members include [[{{Deuteragonist}} Sasuke]], Itachi, Madara, and [[spoiler:Tobi/Obito]], and the Senju (whose members include the First, Second, and Fifth [[AsskickingEqualsAuthority Hokages]]). Tsunade was partly chosen to be Fifth Hokage precisely because she was the granddaughter of the First. Early on, she's less than thrilled with the notion herself, as it just means she's from a lineage of people who got themselves killed in battle.

** The Rhavenfell family, even considering the fact that it has only existed for around five decades, is definitely this.
*** First, we have the Grandfather of the protagonist, and the first to carry the name Rhavenfell. He slayed Thokar the Ravenous, an Earth Dragon that killed 90 MILLION, about 4/5 of the current total population of the empire. Then he built a city atop its corpse.
*** Second, there is the father of the protagonist. Currently one of the greatest warriors in all the empire, and responsible for the death blow against [[http://img07.deviantart.net/84d1/i/2015/075/f/f/stygian_zinogre_by_wombattree-d8lxmjd.jpg Jhin, the last of the Tyrants]], one of Hardy's most powerful beasts. The Tyrant lived to kill Lords and Kings, enslaving the very spirits of the wind and storm.
