* Played horrifically, horrifically straight in TheYugoslavWars. According to Balkan traditions, a child had the same ethnicity as the father, and the mother's was irrelevant. So, a son born to a Croat man and Serb woman would be a Croat. This meant that while all three major ethnic groups (Croats, Bosniaks, and Serbs) were all trying to wipe each other out, they were also setting up 'rape camps' for women of other ethnicities (the Bosnian Serbs were by far the worst perpetrators), where, for example, Serb soldiers would rape Bosniak women, with the intent of producing more 'Serbs,' and to physically and mentally destroy the women. For more information, see [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_in_the_Bosnian_War The Other Wiki]].

* Inverted and... uh... played straight in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''? Considering Hawke's father sort of created his own legacy (and we don't even know his past too well before he ever met Leandra, which is implied to be not very pleasant) by aiding the Wardens, that's the straight part. The inversion would stem from Leandra's side of the family, the Amell lineage.

to:

* In ''Franchise/DragonAge'', played with a few different ways:
** Dwarves play this straight 50% of the time, with the recognized lineage and caste of a child being determined by that of their same-sex parent. This means that you could have opposite sex full siblings of completely different castes.
** In the [[AllThereInTheManual novels]] this is inverted by (eventual) King Maric, whose mother Queen Moira Theirin was an unparalleled badass both on the field and behind the scenes. Maric's biggest struggle is living up to her legacy. Maric's father by comparison gets very little focus and was mostly important because he was related to the Teyrn of Gwaren. Moira was also Queen Regnant in relation to her husband, the Prince Consort.

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''VideoGame/FarCry4'', since while [[LaResistance The Golden Path]] repeatedly emphasizes that protagonist Ajay is the son of their deceased leader Mohan Ghale and refer to him as such, [[TheCaligula Pagan Min]] clearly cares more about the fact that Ajay is his mother Ishwari's son and seemingly doesn't care at all about Mohan being his father despite the fact that the two men were enemies. At the end of the game it's revealed [[spoiler:Pagan has actually named Ajay his heir since Ishwari was the closest thing he had to a queen, and Min's own daughter with Ishwari, Lakshmana, was murdered as a baby by Mohan]].

->''"CODAW starts off on the right foot when we're introduced to our hero taking off his helmet to reveal that he's a white dude with awful facial hair. We then turn to his best friend who takes off his helmet to reveal that he's the exact same identical white dude with awful facial hair. Then they start talking about their dads because it's always dads, isn't it? There are no mothers in Call of Duty's world. Soldiers are birthed fully formed from the tail pipes of their father's restored Cadillacs."''

** As time has gone by, and the viewers have seen more of Rose Quartz, it's become apparent that Steven takes personality traits from both of them. More than that, his nature as a ChildOfTwoWorlds has become more and more important, with his human upbringing acting as a counter to gem society, making both of his parents equally important.

* Inverted in VideoGame/TalesofXillia [[spoiler:Jude's father is an Elympion, but he keeps the spirit channeling ability of his Rieze Maxian mother. Which is probably for the best, otherwise he may have had a very rough, very confusing time on his own planet.]]

* In ''Literature/HushHush'', the only reason Nora's important is because her dad's side of the family was descended from Patch's Nephil slave, making her a suitable sacrifice to make him human. [[spoiler:This is doubly so in the later books, where it's revealed that her dad wasn't actual her biological father. Her biological father not only was the Nephil slave she could be sacrificed to kill, but he was also the leader of a Nephilim army and wants her to be his successor. This, in turn, is the main reason she's important in the final book - the army wants her to lead them to victory.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ApparatusInfernum'', society tends to believe this, which creates a plot-relevant blind spot that hinders the protagonists. They'd like to track down descendants of a certain noble House, but the official records only concern themselves with the patrilineal line and because that line came to an end, the House is considered extinct. In fact, if you count descent from women of the House in question who married into other Houses, descendants are still quite present just under other names.

* In Muslim culture, the honorific title ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sayyid Sayyid]]'' is applied to men who can trace patrilineal descent from TheProphetMuhammad. (Well, as patrilineal as possible--his only grandchildren were through his daughter Fatimah.)
