* In ''Fanfic/MementoVivere'', a VideoGame/FinalFantasyX fanfiction, this question seems to rise when [[spoiler: Braska starts flirting with Rikku]]. Although technically they arenít related by blood...

* A ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' CrackFic called [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9198070/1/Ylissean-Bachelor Ylissean Bachelor]] has Lucina claim that she is her own mother. As Robin explains, [[InSpiteOfANail Chrom's first child will always be Lucina, regardless of who the mother is]], meaning that this could be made possible by the mechanics of their game. Luckily for Chrom, Sumia {{Megaton Punch}}es Lucina out of the studio before he's forced to follow through.

* Caeldori from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' is an {{Expy}} of Cordelia from ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', but several lines imply Cordelia is actually a reincarnation of Caeldori. Where this trope comes in is that, on the ''Revelation'' route, it's possible for Caeldori's mother to be Selena... who is Severa, Cordelia's daughter from ''Awakening''. Time-travel and world-hopping does weird things.

* A bizarre example in Magazine/{{MAD}}'s ''Gasoline Alley'' parody, where the characters' [[UpToEleven disjointed]] [[NotAllowedToGrowUp aging rates]] eventually results in the protagonist's [[MindScrew wife turning into his daughter]], prompting him to exclaim the trope name.

* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'': Following Cloney and C!Sakura's HeroicSacrifice, they re-incarnate ''in the past'', meet, marry and then comes the WHAM moment of the story, when they become '''the parents of R!Syaoran''', as the reader drops [[MindScrew brain dead]] at this point. [[FridgeBrilliance This all makes a weird sort of sense]] when you take into account that the BigBad of the story has been making an attempt to rewrite the basic laws of reality, screwing up everything and causing things that ''should not make sense, or are flat out impossible'' to happen.

* Pierrot Bolneze in ''YakitateJapan'' was abandoned at a circus as an infant, but by Kazuma Azuma's history-changing Taima Ja-pan, he goes back to his childhood and ends up saving his mother from DeathByChildbirth. When Pierrot comes back to current time, both his parents are alive in this timeline. In this version of reality, he became a clown and was named Pierrot because his parents were so impressed with their old butler, the adult Pierrot from the future who was abandoned and raised in a circus.

Then it only gets worse as more logic is thrown of the window...

* Spoofed in ''Film/{{Detention}}''. "Ione is pregnant with herself?"
* Caesar from the original ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' series was born when his parents traveled back in time, and he essentially became their distant ancestor as well as the forefather of the ape race.
* ''Film/{{Predestination}}'', the film based on the Heinlein story in the Literature section, except it takes the MindScrew a few steps further. Got a flow chart? [[spoiler: So the time agent is tracking a terrorist, and while doing so recruits a transman who turns out had sex with his female self, who then gave birth to him/herself.

* Stanley sings the TropeNamer song in ''Film/TheStupids''.



* Marty [=McFly=] spends most of ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' avoiding becoming [[ParentalIncest his own father]]. He succeeds, but instead becomes his own namesake.
* This is subverted in ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII'', where it's revealed that Marty ''did'' have a relative with his name on his father's side.

* Darla sired Liam ''Series/{{Angel}}'', who in turn sired Drusilla. After getting staked early on ''Buffy'', Darla is resurrected as a human in the {{spinoff}} - but she still has the disease that was killing her before she became a vampire. As a last resort, Lindsey brings in Drusilla to vamp her. On having this "family tree" explained to him, Gunn has this to say:
--> "That means the granddaughter remade the grandmother. Man, somehow that weirds me out more than the whole bloodsucking thing."



* In ''Series/TheFlipsideOfDominickHide'' Dominick time travels from the future in hope of meeting the great-great-great grandfather he's heard so much about. It turns out to be a journey of self-discovery.



* ''[[Series/RedDwarf Red Dwarf's]]'' Lister is his own ''father'', through time-travel shenanigans and other convoluted oddness.

* ''Webcomic/IrregularWebcomic'': Adam and Jamie from ''Series/MythBusters'' attempt to do this. They screw it up, becoming each other's grandfather, and therefore their own great-great-grandfathers. Which, incidentally ''does'' prove that this trope can happen, which was the whole reason they attempted this in the first place. Myth confirmed!
* ''Wicked Powered'': Taken to its natural extreme. The main character was sent back in time twice (once [[GenderBender as a woman]] and once as a man). He arrived in the same time on both occasions. The two instances met, fell in love, got married, and conceived a child. Take a guess as to who this child was. [[spoiler: Oh. And the 'aunt' he was living with was actually his pet monkey.]] And apparently, being your own parents makes you immortal. Or something.

* Averted on ''WesternAnimation/CountDuckula'', in which the character only ''claims'' he's his own father, grandfather, etc. He really means that each time he comes back from the dead, he remembers nothing and is effectively reborn with a fresh personality.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' has an example. In the [[ShowWithinAShow Crash Nebula]] episode, Wanda says that there is an episode where Crash discovers he's his own great grandfather after traveling through time.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' has Stewie taking the place of his ancestor LeonardoDaVinci when he is killed by Bertram and managing to pass his own genes down before freezing himself and taking TheSlowPath back.
** One episode had a cutaway gag showing an alternate ending to ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' where Marty figures that since he's about to [[RetGone fade into oblivion]], he might as well have sex with his mother in the past. The result is that in his picture of himself and his parents, they're replaced with an inbred Marty and the "To Be Continued" card is replaced with "To Be Contondered".



* In the ''WesternAnimation/IAmWeasel'' episode "My Friend, the Smart Banana", Weasel and the banana have an intellectual discussion and conclude that if you travel faster than the speed of light, you become your own grandmother.

* Played with, but averted, with the MarvelComics villains Kang the Conqueror and DoctorDoom. Kang, the UrExample of the ConquerorFromTheFuture, was for some time believed to be a future version of Doom, and the two worked together (and double-crossed each other) on many occasions, culminating in the ''Secret Wars'' maxiseries, in which Doom had Kang disintegrated by [[DoAnythingRobot Ultron]] (he got better with the help of a RealityWarper). Later, however, it was revealed that Kang wasn't really Doom's future incarnation. He was actually either Mister Fantastic's father or distant cousin or some such thing ([[TangledFamilyTree it's confusing]]).
