* In ''TacticsOgre'', we have Mad Necromancer Nybeth, who loves experimenting with the dead. He has ''three'' beautiful daughters, two of which rebel against him.

A subversion would be that she's not as beautiful as it appears she's going to be. In this case, she's beautiful, he's actually pretty good looking himself in the anime and there is nothing innocent or cloistered about Nemu.
* A subversion would be Lieutenant Nemu Kurotsuchi from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', who is often [[TheWoobie abused]] by her father and Captain, [[MadScientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi]], yet remains unwaveringly loyal to him. This could have something to do with the fact that she was [[ArtificialHuman artificially created by him]], and might even be his OppositeSexClone.

Those "also see"s where beiging dragged into the description of _this_ trope. Much clearer to remove them.
See also ReplacementGoldfish, HighHeelFaceTurn. Contrast DaddysLittleVillain and OverlordJr. who are evil like their parent, don't fall for the hero (or heroine), and almost never really turn good. Also, Overlord Jrs. often aren't that attractive. See also DefectingForLove. Often overlaps with TheUglyGuysHotDaughter.

Fringe has come and gone, so an example declaring that the show it in its infancy is severely outdated.
* ''Series/{{Fringe}}'': ** Male example: The series has a female lead and the son of a MadScientist who doesn't exactly approve of his father's activities. As of this writing there's no sign of romance, but the show is in its infancy and they seem to be setting up an interesting take on this trope. ** [[spoiler:By the end of season 2 romance between Peter and [[TheHero Olivia]] is canon.]] ** An interesting take indeed, in that the [[DysfunctionJunction complicated relationship]] between Peter and Walter has been given the same emphasis (if not more at times) as the Peter/Olivia [[{{UST}} relationship]].

reversion: No idea where this "must betray (anyone)" idea came form. Certainly not from the the description.

Trope is not simply "Character is related to a villain (or otherwise vaguely shady person)" it also requires that the character betray said villain for lover of The Hero.
* ''Manga/DGrayMan'': ** Lenalee Lee is the younger sister of Mad Scientist Komui. Being an active fighter of evil, Lenalee isn't exactly sheltered, but her brother's attempts to [[BigBrotherInstinct protect]] her [[StealthPun Innocence]] is [[KnightTemplarBigBrother the stuff of legends]]. ** [[HeavySleeper When all other attempts have failed]], he is [[RunningGag usually]] woken up by being told that Lenalee is getting married. He immediately wakes up and starts freaking out about it.

* ''Manga/GetterRobo'''s Michiru counts as this in several continuities.

* ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'': [[spoiler: It turns out that Mitsuki is the Mad Scientist Orochimaru's Handsome Son. Mitsuki says he respects his parent, but thankfully, doesn't seem to have inherited Oro's twisted personality and madness.]]

* ''{{Shazam}}'': ** Doctor Sivana, nemesis of Captain Marvel, has a daughter with the painfully obvious name "Beautia"; naturally she sides with the Captain against her father. ** In this case Sivana also has a good/handsome son ''and'' an evil/ugly daughter and son, who are perfectly happy to help their dad go up against Captain Marvel. ** Though in more modern works, his handsome son and daughter are portrayed as self-centered, spoiled brats while his ugly, brilliant children are their mother's [[TheUnFavorite un-favorites]] and running their own experiments just to impress their mostly absent father.

* Recently, Sofia Branch turned up in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheBlackMirror'' as the manager of Gotham's fastest growing bank. Who is Sofia Branch? She's the daughter of Tony Zucco, the killer of Dick Grayson's parents.

* Alicia Masters of the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', stepdaughter of the Puppet Master.
to:
* Alicia Masters of the ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'', stepdaughter of the Puppet Master.Master, who typically sides with her love interest - The Thing/ Ben Grimm, over her step-father.

* Since SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}} also is a scientist, the ComicBook/ScarletWitch and her (on and off, currently on) half-sister Polaris qualify. Wanda looks [[UncannyFamilyResemblance almost exactly like her mother]]. * Laura "ComicBook/{{X 23}}" Kinney is this. Her creator, Dr. Sarah Kinney, was described as the foremost expert on mutant genetics and was hired by the Facility after her proposal to clone ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}. Despite the ethics of the project, Sarah's interest was purely ForScience, directly likening the idea of cloning a ''mutant'', when mainstream science had only ''just'' cracked cloning sheep and cats, to [[AGodAmI godhood]]. All this knowing full well that the child would be raised to be a LivingWeapon heading in. Laura herself is frequently described as Sarah's spitting-image (explained by some writers as Sarah using her own DNA to stabilize the sample taken from Wolverine), and it's made quite clear Laura is intended to be a quite beautiful young woman.

* ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' utilizes this with Belle and her father, with alterations in the form of the 'mad scientist' being a good person (more of a BunglingInventor, really) and the fact that plot starts because the mad scientist's daughter is ''loyal'' to him.

* For ''WesternAnimation/DespicableMe'': We have the cutest daughters, Margo, Edith, and Agnes.

* Natalie Connors from ''AgentCodyBanks'' fulfills this trope as if the writer had been reading this Wiki.

* Amy Szalinski in ''Film/HoneyIShrunkTheKids'' is an example of the daughter of a good guy mad scientist, Wayne Szalinski. However, she's not an only child, as she has a younger brother, Nick, and the sequels include another younger brother named Adam. She is, however, the only girl.

* The above two comic book examples both draw elements from Sax Rohmer's ''FuManchu'' mythos, including the Beautiful Daughter; however, Fu's own daughter Fah Lo Suee was a full-fledged FemmeFatale (or even [[TheVamp Vamp]]) rather than a cloistered innocent -- just as likely to turn against him, but because she wanted to take his job....

* The likeliest [[TheIgor "tradithion"]] to spawn the beautiful [[CuteMonsterGirl Igorinas]] in the Literature/{{Discworld}}.

* Elizabeth Faulkner, the daughter of an irrational Elizabethan steam-engineer, in ''Phra the Phonecian'' by Edwin Arnold.

* Angie Mitchell in WilliamGibson's ''SprawlTrilogy'', particularly in ''CountZero''.

* In ''The Bride of the Wind'', the eponymous character's father was a scientist, and she said to be beautiful, if unique-looking.

* In the ''Series/{{Angel}}'' episode "Guise Will Be Guise", plays this straight - [[InSpace with MAGIC]]! In order to save [[DamselInDistress Cordelia]], [[NonActionGuy Wesley]] is [[MostDefinitelyNotAnImpostor forced to impersonate]] [[BadAss Angel]] and ends up playing bodyguard to an evil Warlock's beautiful daughter. HilarityEnsues.

** Inverted in "Conscience of the King", where it is the daughter who is the mad one, trying to protect her accused father (he wasn't squeaky clean either tho). * And then there's Tora Ziyal from ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', the innocent daughter of Gul Dukat who always tried to give her father the benefit of the doubt. It didn't end well for her: [[spoiler: she dies a pretty pointless death at the hands of Dukat's [[TheDragon Dragon]] when even she was forced to accept that her father had run out of excuses for the way he behaved and the decisions he took. Always mentally unstable at best, her death was what snapped the last remaining thread of sanity Dukat had ever possessed]].

* Ziva David in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' could be considered this, to a point. Her father could be viewed as a WellIntentionedExtremist but he's more likely just a {{Jerkass}}. Gibbs himself points out to Ziva that her father, despite being the director of Mossad, is dirty and sometimes crosses the MoralEventHorizon into pure, selfish evil. Her response? Sometimes she's on his side, sometimes she's on Gibbs... and now she seems to have crossed permanently into Gibbs' camp by [[spoiler:quitting Mossad and terminating all contact with dear old dad.]] * ''Series/{{Fringe}}'': ** Male example: The series has a female lead and the son of a MadScientist who doesn't exactly approve of his father's activities.

* From Myth/ClassicalMythology: Medea of "Jason and the Golden Fleece" fame -- she is the daughter of King AeŽtes who sets seemingly impossible tasks for TheHero Jason before he can have the fleece. Although Medea herself is evil and out to serve only her own interests; she eventually betrays Jason, too, although not before killing her own brother ''and'' her own children. However, she only killed her children intentionally in the [[Theatre/{{Medea}} Euripides version]] of the myth, as earlier versions had the people of Corinth murdering her children in retribution for them being her unwitting accomplices in killing the princess Jason left her for, and even the Euripedes play points more to Jason's hubris as the result of Medea snapping and the tragedy that followed.

* ''VideoGame/JadeEmpire'' has Silk Fox, the insane emperor's beautiful daughter.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'': [[spoiler:Kid is Schala's clone/reincarnation/[[MindScrew something like that]].]]

* Lady in ''VideoGame/DevilMayCry 3'' is the daughter of Arkham.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'': Sherry Birkin, in addition to ShesAllGrownUp.

* Tabitha in ''Webcomic/FarOutThere'' is not only a [[http://faroutthere.smackjeeves.com/comics/1794321/page-566-just-keep-doing-what-youre-doing looker]], but followed her Daddy's footsteps into being a MadScientist herself.

* Aelita from ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', though her father's sanity is more questionable than definitely not present.

* ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutron'''s nemesis, Professor Calamitous, has a daughter who's actually named "Beautiful Gorgeous". Contrary to the trope, she's possibly more evil than her father, and almost certainly more effective at it. * ''WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot'': ** Melody is a mad scientist's beautiful ''robot'' "daughter"... unbeknownst to her love interest Brad as he struggles to escape from her father's captivity. ** Jenny herself, though it was her ''mother'' who made her. At first, she was only allowed out to save the world.

* Kitten from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' may [[AmbiguouslyHuman not even truly have been human]], seeing as her father was Killer Moth, and her [[DaddysLittleVillain beauty was clearly only skin deep]] but given the nature of Killer Moth's scheme's she technically qualifies.

* Though not necessarily a bad guy, Dr. Orpheus from ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'' is a mad scientist/necromancer with a relatively normal teenage daughter, Triana, whom he loves and cares for, humorously mixing his medieval, renaissance faire-like attitude with the trials of a modern-day single dad. * In ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'', Jazz defiantly takes after her mother. Even when she won't admit it ''and'' when Jack Fenton is more bumbling than mad.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SkysurferStrikeForce'', Cerina is the daughter to show BigBad, Cybron. Unlike most of the examples though, she's clearly evil.

* Dr. Vahtoss and his daughter Carmalita from ''WesternAnimation/TheTick''.

* In ''RickAndMorty'', Beth is older than the typical example, but still qualifies.

[[folder:Real Life]] * Catherine Barton was the ''niece'' of IsaacNewton (he never married and had no children), but she did live in his house in London. She was renowned for her beauty and wit. Newton himself was an Alchemist and heavily into the occult and weird. [[/folder]]

That isn't a subversion. The trope is about a beautiful daughter who betrays her father for the love of the hero. This trope simply isn't in effect for this character for it to be played with.
* A subversion would be Lieutenant Nemu Kurotsuchi from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', who is often [[TheWoobie abused]] by her father and Captain, [[MadScientist Mayuri Kurotsuchi]], yet remains unwaveringly loyal to him.

Getting rid of Natter and all the Draco In Leather Pants treatment of Medea.
** In the French fandom, Voldemort was supposed to have a daughter called Ange (false rumors copied on every fan site). She was rumored to enter Hogwarts in book five. Actually it was one of many false rumors that were copied from one French Harry Potter fansite to another.

In fact, the only people she ''didn't'' kill for Jason, according to the earlier myths, were the princess of Corinth, whom Jason abandoned her for, and the King of Corinth, who died trying to save his daughter. *** Even the Euripides version assigns most of the actual blame for how things worked out to Jason's heroic flaw of ambition, and presents her desire to destroy the legacy that she'd lost everything to create for him (the fact that she did most of the work in her section of the Argonauts story is lampshaded thoroughly) is treated less as the sinister kind of evil and more the righteous rage of a betrayed demigod whose strained patience at being slowly discarded finally snapped. ** But it didn't help that Jason himself had begun showing interest in the much younger Corinthian Princess, and increasingly ignoring Medea and her boys. Medea had given up everything for this jerk-I mean hero, and didn't have anything to go home to.
