** The most bizarre form yet. [[spoiler: John, in the present, finds a cloning station which is locked on to four people: his Nanna, Jade's Grandpa, Rose's Mom, and Dave's Bro. He clones all four of them, using paradox slime. The slime from Nanna and Grandpa is mixed together, as is the slime from Mom and Bro. From the Grandpa/Grandma slime, clones of John and Jade are created, as are Rose and Dave from Mom/Bro slime. The part where it gets weird though, is when these clone babies are sent back in time, to become the regular them.]] It gets worse: [[spoiler: Four "pure" clones babies are also created ... and sent back to become Nanna, Grandpa, Mom and Bro in the first place.]] [[UpToEleven It gets much worse.]] [[spoiler: Since John could be considered as "fathering" all the kids AND guardians, (since he did actually physically push the button and create them) John is... his own (second?) father, his grandfather, his [[SerialEscalation half-sister's father, and her great-grandfather, his own great-grandfather, and his father-in-law + his own grandfather-in-law, if he does marry Rose. That's not counting the implications if you consider his being a "father" to Rose, Dave, Mom and Bro, which just makes it all the more convoluted.]]]]

* A well-known example is the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Roswell That Ends Well", where Fry unwittingly becomes his own grandfather by the direct expedient of doing, as he puts it, "the nasty in the past-y". Surprisingly, this actually became a major plot point in some later episodes. And in a previous episode, it turned out.

*** This finally convinces Professor Farnsworth to stop worrying about causing a time paradox:
-->'''Professor:''' "Let's just steal the damn dish and get back to our own time!"
-->'''Fry''': "But, but wont that change history?"
-->'''Professor''': "Oh, a lesson on not changing history from Mister 'I'm My Own Grandpa'. Let's just get the hell out of here already! Screw history!"

** The [[Terminator2 first sequel]] is a more straight-played example, with Skynet being created by people who found a piece of one of Skynet's agents.

* Subverted in the very NSFW webcomic ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' when [[Theatre/OedipusRex Oedipus]] is convinced by his mother Jocasta to impregnate her ([[MindScrew and two other versions of Jocasta]]) with himself. It turns out that he kept his father's "equipment" and used it as a substitute.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic describes ''WesternAnimation/TheThiefAndTheCobbler'' and ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'' thus:
-->When I hear pop cultural references in a film that takes place in Arabia, I think of ''Aladdin''. But this was being made '''before''' ''Aladdin''. Apparently, Disney animators drew influence from this movie when it was being made that helped ''Aladdin'' get off the ground. And after that came out, the new producers of this film drew influence from ''Aladdin''. So ''Aladdin'' ripped off this, only to have this rip off ''Aladdin''. Basically, the film is a product of '''animated inbreeding'''. Suddenly, this is all starting to make more sense, isn’t it?

* Happens in a rather technical sort of way in the FanFic/{{Dangerverse}}. Near the end of Harry's third year at Hogwarts, Lucius Malfoy kidnaps Draco and Hermione and blood-bonds them as twins, which also makes the titular character (Hermione's elder sister) Lucius's biological daughter. Shortly thereafter, Danger infects Lucius with lycanthropy, making her in some fashion his mother.
