* A popular ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'': theory is the idea that the Spy is the Scout's father. In "Meet the Spy," the BLU Spy reveals that the RED Spy has been sleeping with the BLU Scout's mother. A drawing of the Scout's mother is engraved on the barrel of the Spy's unlockable handgun, the Ambassador. And one achievement for the Spy, "Who's Your Daddy," involves headshotting three Scouts with the Ambassador, the gun on which his mother is engraved.
** The ''Mann Co. No More'' [[Webcomic/TeamFortress2 comic series]] looks further into this: Scout has a "nightmare" about the Spy being his father in the third issue, and the fourth issue ''heavily'' implies that the theory is true with a WhamLine:

* In Creator/TerryGoodkind's ''Wizard's First Rule'', the first book of the Literature/SwordOfTruth series, it is revealed that Richard is actually the son of Darken Rahl, the antagonist. Yes, his name is ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Darken]]''. And he's the father of the protagonist, who has a magic sword, and is taught by an old man. [[RealSlimShadowen This editor]] would have blanked it out with spoiler tags, but frankly it's not that important. And it's not even the father revealing it to his son, but his son's maternal grandfather. So.
** This then happens several more times with different characters.
** The [[Series/LegendOfTheSeeker TV series]] loosely based on the books also follows the trope but replaces Luke, I Am Your Father with Luke, I Am Your Brother, and this time, Zedd is not the one who reveals the truth. The substitution is likely because the actor playing Rahl is much younger than the character in the novel, making Richard only about 10-15 years Rahl's junior in the show.
** This is actually one of Goodkind's better instances of PlayingWithATrope. It starts with Darken Rahl accusing [[OldMaster Zedd]] of being Richard's father. Zedd responds, in short, "Actually, I'm his grandfather. Remember how [[RapeAsDrama you raped my daughter?]] ''You're'' his father." Richard is not present for this scene, and doesn't find out himself about either of these relations until the next book.

* Masterfully inverted, gender-swapped, and played without melodrama in ''Series/TheTenthKingdom'', when via the magic mirror Virginia and her father learn that the Evil Queen is her missing mother Christine. Not only is this trope combined with that of the MysteriousParent (though here there is no revelation about the child), but despite the constant references throughout the miniseries, the scene of TheReveal genuinely took this editor by surprise when he first saw it -- and it did for every other person he's ever shown the film to. It's ''that'' subtle, but so obvious on a second viewing... rather like ''The Sixth Sense''. What makes it particularly unique is that, rather than the villain making the revelation, it comes from a third party (in this case a magical object), and it is the hero who must then convince their erstwhile parent of the truth, rather than the reverse. The tragedy ensues when Virginia breaks through to her real mother after the poison comb has loosed her from the Swamp Witch's spell, [[TearJerker she remembers who she is and declares her love...and dies in her daughter's arms.]]

* A rather unlikely example in ''MahouSenseiNegima'', where one of 10-year-old Negi Springfield's 15-year-old students claims to be his ''descendant''. She's from a hundred years in the future--and can prove it--so it's not as crazy as it sounds...
