* There are several examples of this in ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments''. Jace thinks he is evil because he is the son of [[BigBad Valentine]], and because he believes that Valentine has been experimenting with demon blood on him and that it is corrupting him into evil. But Clary realizes early on in the plot that Jace is not half as bad as he thinks he is, even though he sometimes behaves like a [[JerkWithAnHeartOfGold jerk]].

*** As it later turns out that he is not the son of Valentin, and was not even made by him partially demonic, his attitude changes. He is still the son of [[VanHelsingHateCrimes fanatical demon hunters]].
** Clary Fairchild is actually the daughter of Valentin. But she also inverts it, because she is not evil at all.
** But it's playing straight with her brother Jonathan Morgenstern. He is a cruel and sadistic person. The reason for this is not that he is the son of Valentin, but that he was partly a demon due to the experiments with demon blood, and thus was corrupted into evil. [[GoneHorriblyWrong Valentin hoped to create a stronger kind of nephilim, but he was horrified by his demonic leanings]].

* An issue in the [[Literature/TheWheelOfTime Wheel of Time]] -- one of the protagonists was adopted, but was assured that he is considered the son of the one who raised him. His genetic family does still take him in, but that probably also has something to do with him being [[spoiler: the Dragon Reborn]].

* Calling them outright "evil" would be incorrect however they are criminals. Jessie from ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' ended up involved in Team Rocket just like her mother, despite the fact Miyamoto wasn't in her life due to giving her up at a young age.
