Added DiffLines:

* Played interestingly in ''Literature/TheOldKingdom''. [[BadPowersGoodPeople Sabriel]] inherited her looks, her skill as a {{necromancer}} and the office of the Abhorsen from her father, while her mother's influence is much more minor. However, [[HeroicBastard Touchstone]] inherited his royal bloodline from his mother and knows very little of his father. Ultimately, each character inherited their "specialness" from their opposite-gender parent.

* With Saya and Diva from the anime ''Anime/Blood+'' is inverted. They are true Chiropterans and thus queens of their kind, as well as her mother was a.

* In ''Series/Supernatural'' it first look as if this trope are played straight. Because Dean and Sam Winchester are two demon hunters, because their father they brought up. But later it turns out that it is inverted with them. Actually there is her mother's family for generations from [[DemonSlaying Demon Hunters]], while her father's family, with the exception of John Winchester, rather were scholars who called themselves "Men of Letters."

* ''Franchise/StarWars'' seems to play this straight, with the everpresent concern that Luke will end up [[InTheBlood like his father before him]]. Looking at the prequels and the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', it becomes clear that in terms of personality, he's more like his mother. He has that same apparently unfounded belief in the goodness of Vader, and though he can certainly get dangerous when there's call for that, he tries diplomacy first. He handles things his own way, and that's almost never Anakin's way; late-set books actually voice the opinion that he's become passive and reactionary instead of proactive. How much of this can be attributed to genetics versus his upbringing is debatable, but he's more like his mother than he initially seems. Leia, on the other hand, takes after Anakin, though she isn't happy about it. She is way more proactive and stubborn than her brother, and she isn't nearly as forgiving of Vader's sins. The Noghri call her "Lady Vader" for a reason.

** In the EU, are the three Jedi Anakin Solo, Jaina Solo and Jacen Solo (but later he is a Sith). They are the children of Han Solo and Leia Organa, and have their special powers of her mother.


Added DiffLines:

** The half-giant Hagrid also inverted this trope. He is the child of a magician and a giantess, and has his superhuman powers of his mother.
** In the fourth band can also be seen a quarter-Veela. Her mother was a half-Veela and her grandmother a pure Veela.


Added DiffLines:

* In ''TheShannaraChronicles'' this trope is played very strong. The young half-elf Will is the son of a male elf and a human female. When he experienced his adventures, he hears again and again that his father was a powerful wizard and a great hero who has achieved much good. Constantly he is prompted as to be a hero, as his father was one. From his mother you do not hear much after the first episode. You do not even learn her name. Later in the story, there is also another half-elf, a young girl who also had an elf as father and a human as mother.
* In ''Series/Supernatural'' it first look as if this trope are played straight. Because Dean and Sam Winchester are two demon hunters, because their father they brought up. But later it turns out that it is inverted with them. Actually there is her mother's family for generations from [[DemonSlaying Demon Hunters]], while her father's family, with the exception of John Winchester, rather were scholars who called themselves "Men of Letters."
* In ''TheXFiles'' there is a teenager named Dylan Lokensgard, who this trope inverted. He is a hybrid, because his father was a human, and his mother was an "insect-human mutant". He has the same powers as her, and uses them to take revenge on his classmates, and a girl to win over, in which he is in love.


Added DiffLines:

** The sons and daughters of Aang and Katara is playing straight, is also inverted. Bumi has no special powers (but later he is an airbender). With Kya it is inverted, because it is a waterbender like her mother. With Tenzin but it playing straight, because he is an airbender like his father.

* 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.
