Enter this trope. This is when a child decides for him- or herself that s/he isn't going to repeat the same mistakes that his or her parents have made. Maybe the child was raised with a {{Jerkass}} for a father, or mommy dearest was a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} of the worst kind. Or, maybe the child has just developed an interest that strays far away from his or her parent's preferences. Whether out of embarrassment or for the sake of rebellion, expect this to lead to CallingTheOldManOut.

* A case of I am not my ''grand''father is shown in a sidestory of ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' with a young Samuel Oak. While he admires his grandfather Pallet Oak (who was considered the greatest Pokémon Master of all time), he's determined to make the world a better place in his own way.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Daenerys says this word-for-word in 'The House of Black and White'. Dany seems genuinely disturbed as Ser Barristan describes the atrocities of the Mad King. This trope is a key element in Tyrion throwing his support behind her. She also stuns Jon Snow when she openly declares that her father was an evil man.

* A stock plot on all [[SoapOpera Soaps]] where family issues take center stage; bonus points if it's because they find out [[WhosYourDaddy their father wasn't who they thought it was]]. [[TheYoungAndTheRestless Nick Newman]], [[Series/DaysOfOurLives Bo Brady]] and [[Series/OneLifeToLive Star Manning]] all have elements and some of the dynastic families like the [[Series/GeneralHospital Quatermaines]] and the [[Series/CoronationStreet Barlows]] practically run on it.

One of the first things said by Liara in ''Franchise/MassEffect'' ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' is "I am not [[TheDragon my mother!]]".mother!]]". Which is ironic, considering how both she and her mother Benezia have been [[MagneticHero magnetically drawn]] to dashing, larger-than-life Spectres on a quest for galactic salvation, and eventually became their most ardent supporters and trusted confidantes. So, despite her claims to the contrary, Liara is NotSoDifferent from her mom... except that she either is a much better judge of character, or is just a whole lot luckier to have followed [[PlayerCharacter Shepard]] instead of someone like [[TheHeavy Saren]].

* ''Fanfic/OldWest'': Rattlesnake Jake never drinks himself into drunkenness because [[AlcoholicParent his father]] James Douglas [[DomesticAbuse beat Jake's mother Selena]] every night when he returned home under the influence until it lead to her death. When Jake finds his lover Grace beaten by her husband, the following ExtremeMeleeRevenge is partly influenced by the flashback Jake has of his last night with his parents and his father's words of Jake becoming a man like him. In the following chapter, Jake continues acting on this trope by ultimately deciding ''not'' to [[DrowningMySorrows drink in order to cope with his strained relationship with Grace]].
-->'''Jake''': My daddy had his weakness. It destroyed him. Now I've got my own.
