** In said Vulgate and Mallory Mordred is a conventionally noble knight of the Round Table, until he's hit with his illegitimate and incestuous birth and foredoomed treason by a prophetic hermit and suffers an instantaneous BSOD and HeelFaceTurn. Can you say 'Self Fulfilling Prophecy'?

* The goddess Urd of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is a near expy of her mother, the demon and ruler of Hell, Hild. Even though she identifies as a goddess and it is her affiliation, people have told her more than once her temperament is closer to demon - or rather, nearly exactly like her mother, which is the same for all intents and purposes. This even though she was only raised by Hild for a few early years, and has been a goddess as long as she can remember. Her power is also in the leagues of her mother.



* ''Anime/MazingerZ'': Dr. Juuzo Kabuto was a brilliant scientist and builder of HumongousMecha. His son Kenzo was a brilliant scientist and builder of HumongousMecha. His elder grandson Kouji was a pilot of HumongousMecha and he was already designing and building ufos for the age of nineteen. And his younger grandson Shiro is also pretty smart for his age. Usually all members of Kabuto family combine high intelligence with CrazyAwesome.

* Somewhat arguably, [[spoiler: Yusuke]] from Manga/YuYuHakusho. Though it's not dwelt on much, partly because by the point in the series it comes up things have gotten to be semi-pure action, far far away from the series' roots as a chronicle of the reflective character-building experiences a delinquent can have while a ghost, probably because Togashi had [[HunterXHunter gone mad with power]] by this point, [[spoiler: a while after our hero has come back from the dead as a demon because of Mazoku ancestry, he has become relatively okay with the less uncivilized gradations of human-eating, and when Raizen is about to die due to self-imposed starvation offers insistently to go find him '''someone''' to eat right away. Earlier in the series he got ''incredibly'' angry about any cannibalistic tendencies, and drew huge lines between 'killing demons,' which he had done a good deal of, and 'killing humans,' which he really really did not want to have to do.]] Could just be an implicit redrawing of the FantasticRacism lines, with demons no longer suffering from WhatMeasureIsANonHuman because he wasn't human. So it might just be a really strange form of a perfectly reasonable Aesop, and/or Reverse GettingCrapPastTheRadar due to not treating it like it's important. Intended to cause FridgeLogic, probably. Altogether weird.

* The Ant King Meruem of HunterXHunter was born full-grown, intelligent, utterly selfish, and with the mission to conquer the world. Most of his character development as he grew up just reinforced his BlueAndOrangeMorality Evil, but he eventually, after a few months and under the influence of a sweet little blind girl with a perpetually runny nose whom he couldn't beat at a strategy game, developed into an honorable adult being. Still very cruel and arrogant, but given he was possibly the most powerful thing on the planet it would be hard not to be. Given his mother's attitude and the fact that he presumably contains bits of the sentience of various humans she ate during his gestation, because that's a chimaera ant ability, it's hard to say what can be called InTheBlood for him, but he seems to have risen above his nature.

* Despite being a complete opposite in terms of personality, Negi Springfied of ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' does share one very important quality with his father Nagi... [[ChickMagnet the ability to make every single girl he meets fall in love with him]]. [[spoiler: He also inherited his mother's personality and [[ObliviousToLove complete inability to notices said love]]]]. This continued in ''Manga/UQHolder'' with his grandson Touta, who Mizore refers to as "the next in line of a formidable family of ladykillers".

* This trope is played straight in the ''BaldursGate'' series in regards to the main character and several of the villains, who are [[spoiler:Bhaalspawn; children of the now-dead god of murder]].
** This could just be selection bias, though; the evil [[spoiler:Bhaalspawn]] have been busily killing off the good ones, and the good ones are less likely to appear on the PC's radar in any case. The PC him/herself can be a solidly LawfulGood KnightInShiningArmor if the player so chooses. In ''Throne of Bhaal'' you meet several "lesser Bhaalspawn", quite a few of whom seem to be just regular Joes, and one who is a bit of a KnightTemplar, killing off all other Bhaalspawn because their great potential for evil and then planning to kill himself off.

** This is one of Fate's biggest fears in ''[[Anime/MagicalGirlLyrialNanohaStrikerS StrikerS]]'', the idea that she'd turn out like [[AbusiveParents Precia]]. Her fears aren't misplaced since she's incredibly similar to her mother pre-insanity (MarriedToTheJob and never has as much time as she'd like to spend with her kids), but the chance of her ending up that way are incredibly slim since the franchise practically runs on RousseauWasRight and ThePowerOfFriendship.

* In ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'', the protagonist of Part V, Giorno Giovanna, is the son of Dio Brando. However, since Dio conceived Giorno after he had stolen Jonathan Joestar's body, Giorno is biologically Jonathan's son and thus is part of the Joestar bloodline. Joseph and Jotaro are initially concerned that he'll turn out like Dio. Fortunately, Giorno takes after his more heroic lineage instead, [[spoiler: even considering he takes over a massive criminal organization]], though he ''does'' have Dio's "WRRRRYYYY!" battle cry and [[BlondGuysAreEvil gorgeous blond locks]].

* Played with in ''ASongOfIceAndFire'': The Targaryen royal family line is known to be "tainted" with madness; one character says that every time a new Targaryen was born, the country would hold its breath to see if the new Targaryen would be one of the good ones or one of the bad ones. However, this is {{justified|Trope}}. The Targaryens are seriously inbred due to repeated BrotherSisterIncest; the inbreeding results in many of this line having physical problems and/or serious mental and emotional instability, while the luckier ones inherit the family strong points and manage to miss the damaging recessives.
** Also, [[spoiler: Sansa being told she has "traitor's blood", because of her father's actions.]]
** Whatever it is in the Bolton linage, you know it ain't good news when enough [[{{Sadist}} Sadism]] of various descriptions has cropped up to get you a flayed man as a readily identifiable House sigil. As well as a broad collection of very nasty rumours piling up over centuries having grown up around your name. Added to all that, is a House seat called... ''[[IDontLikeTheSoundOfThatPlace The Dreadfort]]''. [[ObviouslyEvil You can't say you're not warned...]]

* It's regularly noted in ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' that Battler has more than a few similarities to his grandfather, Kinzo. Considering that Kinzo is certifiably batshit insane in every sense of the word, [[BigScrewedUpFamily as well as the fact that crazy]] [[ItRunsInTheFamily seems to run in the family in general]], we can assume that this is not a good thing.
