Added DiffLines:

* In ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'', Kenton's stubborness and Sand Master abilities both come from his father, though with Kenton having a MissingMom, it's uncertain how much he got from his mother apart from dark skin.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted with ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDragonJakeLong''. Jake and his younger sister Haley's dragon abilities come from their mother's side of the family tree, while their father is a normal human that has [[LockedOutOfTheLoop no knowledge of this or the magical world in general]].

Added DiffLines:

* In almost all human traditions throughout history, status and material inheritance is determined by the father (or the husband once a girl is married).
* Genetically, its actually the inverse since there is more inheritable traits found in the much larger egg than the sperm. These things includes genetic and regulatory markers that are not present in the DNA coding alone.

** This is averted for both ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' and ''FireEmblemAwakening'', as the majority of the second generation characters are tied to their mothers.

* The ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblem]]'' series features three (thus far) games with parent-child mechanics, all of them fairly similar despite the radically different approaches to all of them. It plays with this trope in various ways:
** This is averted for both ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' and ''FireEmblemAwakening'', as the majority of the second generation characters are tied to their mothers. *** For ''Genealogy'', mothers have two children each, all with fixed classes, and their skill sets, weapons and Holy Blood can change depending on who their father is. Because of the fixed classes and limited amount of first gen units with holy blood, the second generation can either be a small army of horrendously broken [[GameBreaker Game Breakers]] or incredibly weak. The exceptions to this rule are [[WideEyedIdealist Seliph]] (son of first-gen Lord Sigurd and Dierdre), siblings Altenna and Leif (the children of Cuan and Ethlyn), Julia (daughter of [[spoiler:half-siblings Arvis and Dierdre]]), and Ares (son of OptionalBoss Eldigan and his NPC wife Grahnye), as they are the product of fixed pairings, although Julia's abilities are drawn from her mother. The Sniper Faval is a prominent example, as he inherits his major Ulir blood, and the holy bow Yewfelle, from his mother Briggid.

* {{Inverted}} and somewhat averted in VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening - with the exception of [[spoiler:Lucina and Female Morgan]], all the Children depend on the 'mother', and inherit skills and stats from both parents.
** Played straighter with [[spoiler: Validar]]. All of his ancestors known to carry [[spoiler:Grima]] Blood were male.

*** ''Awakening'', has said kids tied to mothers again. Both parents lend one reclassing option each and one skill each,
with the exception father lending their hair color to the kids this time. The exceptions are Lucina (daughter of [[spoiler:Lucina Chrom) and Female Morgan]], a female Morgan (daughter of a male Avatar). Due to the inflated stat caps, customizable growths, and the potential to pass down gender-exclusive skills to the children, the second generation in this game is arguably an even ''bigger'' GameBreaker than ''Genealogy.''
*** ''FireEmblemFates'' plays this straight: while the mechanics for children are the same as ''Awakening'' for the most part, the children are
all tied to their fathers this time, with the Children depend on exceptions being a male Kana (son of a female Avatar) and Shigure (son of Azura). While unique class combinations can be passed down (namely the 'mother', Avatar's Nohr Prince/Princess class and inherit its promotions), this game's second generation is more on par with the first due to a lack of gender-exclusive skills and stats from both parents.
** Played straighter with [[spoiler: Validar]]. All of his ancestors known to carry [[spoiler:Grima]] Blood were male.
the children actually having their own growths that are only subtly influenced by whatever mother is chosen for each kid.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'': Satele Shan is the descendant of Bastila and Revan, but she mainly takes on the traits of her great-great-etc.-mother Bastila. She also bears Bastila's last name. Then again, we never learn Revan's (if he even had one). Besides, Bastila raised their son Vaner (note the anagram name) alone, as Revan had to leave for the Unknown Regions and never came back. Satele's secret son Theran also bears her last name, but that's partly due to his father Colonel Jace Malcom not knowing of his existence until later.
