* Both NicolasCage and KeanuReeves are known to have had ancestors who looked remarkably similar to them, which has lead fans to (jokingly) speculate that they're actually immortal. It helps that [[OlderThanTheyLook neither of them have aged very visibly in the decades since their movie careers started]]. Hmm...

* In ''TabletopGame/FreedomCity'', Daniel Daedalus, a GadgeteerGenius who is a member of the modern day Freedom League under the name Daedalus, allows people to believe he's the son of the Daedalus who was a member of the SilverAge Freedom League. It's simpler than explaining he's ''actually Daedalus''.

* Many of ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula's'' "ancestors" were actually his own prior incarnations, with subtle differences every time his servants resurrect him (even before they got the blood and ketchup mixed up).

* In the backstory of Charles Sheffield's novel ''The Ganymede Club'', a spaceship crew ran into something that apparently made them immortal. They cover this up by occasionally faking their deaths and starting over with new identities (this is [[ConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverstory made easier]] by a massively destructive Earth-Belt war between the incident and the time of the story).

* In ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', Mina Harker and Allan Quartermain drink from the FountainOfYouth, restoring both to their late-20s selves. Mina lives on as herself and is noted to be "remarkably well-preserved," while Allan invokes this trope and poses as "Allan Quartermain Jr."

* The title character of ''ComicBook/{{Supreme}}'', [[ClarkKenting aka Ethan Crane]], due to his powers, ages very slowly, and, despite being born in 1920, [[OlderThanTheyLook looks to be in his mid-to-late thirties]]. When he met the universe's now elderly {{Expy}} of Lana Lang [[spoiler: inhabited by the spirit of the ComicBook/LexLuthor {{Expy}}]], in the late 90s, she briefly recognises him as her old friend Ethan Crane, but then assumes he must be Ethan Crane's son since Ethan couldn't possibly look the same as he did decades ago. For the rest of the series he goes by the name "Ethan Crane Jr.", [[ThrowItIn posing as his own son]]. It's helped by the fact that Supreme, and therefore "Ethan Crane Sr." disappeared into space in the late 60s, and only returned over twenty years later. Although we later learn he never bothered to make up a name for his mother.
