** In ''Empire of Ivory'' when he, {{Temeraire}}, several uniformed crewmen, and a twelve-year-old girl attended an Aerial Corps fundraiser. His father Lord Allendale, after the latter cheerfully admitted to Laurence and Temeraire personally tutoring her; cornered his son and quietly made diffident, embarrassed, and evasive inquiries as to the health of the young girl's mother. To deny the unspoken accusation would have made Laurence look even worse, he could not reveal her [[TheSquadette true status]] in public, and his attempt at a bare bones[=/=]true-as-far-as-it-went explanation ("She is the natural daughter of... a gentlewoman living in Dover, whose education I have taken as my charge") did ''nothing'' to allay suspicion[[note]]said [[TheLadette "gentlewoman"]], who he had in fact been sleeping with occasionally since they met four years prior, laughed herself sick when she heard about the mixup[[/note]].

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney''. Pearl tags along with Phoenix and Maya, but whenever Maya is not present, some of the [=NPCs=] believe Pearl is Phoenix's daughter. On the other hand, it works entirely backwards in ''Apollo Justice'' with Trucy, who says Phoenix is her father despite her being in her early teens and Phoenix having no children seven years before. It takes a while till we realize she's adopted.

* MonstersInc had an unusual example. Waternoose finds Boo and asks if she is Sully and Mike's. They both say no, hiding her with the fact that she's Sully's "cousin's sister's daughter," instead.

* In ''ElfQuest: Siege at Blue Mountain'', Cutter pays a visit to the human couple Nonna and Adar and assumes that the three children living with them are theirs even though they are too old. His misunderstanding is due to the elves' low birth rate, and their general ignorance of human gestation periods and growth rates.

* ''Anime/SoukouNoStrain'' has an interesting twist, although it looks the same as other examples of the trope. For one, the apparent 16-year-olds are technically much older due to a TechnoBabble-explained paradox with sub-lightspeed travel. For another, the apparent little girl is ReallySevenHundredYearsOld.

* In ''LoveHina'', Otohime Mutsumi asks if Narusegawa Mei (about 10 or 12 years old) is Narusegawa Naru's (17) and Urashima Keitaro's (20) child. Of course, Mutsumi acts rather dim much of the time.

** Also played with in R ''before'' Chibi-Usa showed up. They were taking care of a baby boy: Minako said called the kid "their child" in good tease spirits, but An/Natsumi was peeved. Also, Chibi-Chibi was sometimes mistaken as Usagi's little sister (and introduced as such, sorta. Ikuko says so).

* ''RanmaOneHalf'' has a unique variation where Ryoga (16) is [[FountainOfYouth turned into a five-year-old]] and mistaken to be ''his own son''. Then again, they might have not jumped to that conclusion if Ranma didn't introduce him as such just to mess with him.

* Used a bit more seriously in ''BunnyDrop,'' with the nearly-thirty Daikichi and six year-old Rin. A slight subversion in that Rin is biologically Daikichi's ''aunt.''

Of course, as it's [[StalkerWithACrush Mur]][[MagnificentBastard aki]], it's a deliberately InvokedTrope.
* In ''HoneyAndClover'', a ryokan receptionist asks Professor Hanamoto if the gang are here for a family reunion and if Hagu is the Prof's middle school age daughter (She isn't).
