* Generally, anytime you see The Spider Lady it is a safe bet she'll be losing. She actually started out with a winning record in 1985, but her repeated failures to defeat Wendi Richter gave her a jobber image that she failed to shake off by 2014. Helping cement it was when the Spider Lady finally defeated Richter, "she"was unmasked to reveal the Fabulous Moolah, who most definitely was not the original since Moolah had previously been her manager. Whoever put the mask back on after Moolah died maintained a losing record.

** The guardians of the Four Maidens also have a member whose powers are inherited from male to eligible male in a very similar manner to that of the Maidens. [[spoilers:When Professor Ozpin was a child, he started hearing voices inside his head. His Aura and Soul were special and therefore merged with those of another being, changing his life forever and leading him to become the leader of the BenevolentConspiracy that protects both the Four Maidens and four mythical Relics that together hold the power to destroy the world. When Cinder Fall obtains the powers of the Fall Maiden, she and Ozpin fight to the death. His Aura and Soul merge with the young farmhand, Oscar Pine, who now finds on the same path as Ozpin, guided by Ozpin's thoughts and memories to take up Ozpin's duties. When Salem learns that Cinder is convinced she killed Ozpin, she strongly implies Cinder can only be right if Ozpin allowed his death to happen, further implying that Salem knows Ozpin is [[BodySurf body-surfer]].]]

In volume 4, it's revealed Remnant legend, there is a fairy tale called The Story of the Seasons, which tells of a reclusive old wizard who gifts ElementalPowers to four sisters so that [[spoiler:Ozpin was one to his predecessor, and that a young farm boy named Oscar was chosen to be this to him. Each one, when dead, has they can help humanity. The Four Maidens actually do exist, each wielding unimaginable power, but their souls existence is kept secret by their guardians to prevent villains from stealing their power. When one Maiden dies, her power will pass on in a way determined by her dying thoughts. If her last thoughts are of an eligible girl, the power will pass to her; if the dying Maiden's last thoughts are of a male or an ineligible female, the power will pass to a random eligible female who could be located anywhere in the world. If a Maiden is murdered by an eligible female, and aura her dying thoughts are of that killer, then the killer themselves can inherit the power. Each new Maiden will interpret and express her powers in a way that is unique to her, so no two Maidens will be ever be alike, even when comparing Maidens of the same Season.

** M'aiq the Lair is a recurring EasterEgg Legacy Character who has appeared in every game since ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]''. According to the dialogue of the M'aiq in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', they are all related. Each has [[GenerationXerox the same traits]] of being a MetaGuy AuthorAvatar FourthWallObserver (and [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Leaner]] and sometimes ''[[BreakingTheFourthWall Breaker]]'') who is [[DeadpanSnarker fond of deadpan sarcasm]], is [[BlatantLies untrustworthy]], and who seems [[CloudCuckoolander very detached from the game world]]. Based on the appearance of a M'aiq in the prequel ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'', which takes place in the mid 2nd Era, they've been at this for ''centuries''.

* In the ''FanFic/ShadowchasersSeries'', {{Dracula}} is not one being, but a title held by whatever vampire rules the others. The current Dracula is female, appearing as a young teenage girl dressed in a {{Goth}} ensemble. She is far more benign than most of her predecessors, concentrating on trying to improve the PR of vampires in general, who are a DyingRace in this reality.

* In ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' story ''Fanfic/SupermanOf2499TheGreatConfrontation'' Alan Kent is Superman's descendant and heir. Katherine is descendant of Kara Zor-El and heiress of the ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}'s name. The concept is deconstructed with Hi Jenk, an utterly harmless solicitor brutally murdered by the Joker because he just happened to be a descendant of [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl}} Barbara Gordon]] and her father Commissioner Gordon.
