** 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, isnít it?

* 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.

* 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.

If they're just pretending to be their grandchild, then that's MyGrandsonMyself. A LiteralSelfMadeMan is a more supernatural version of this trope who directlycreated himself through supernatural means, which may or may not involve time travel. See also KidFromTheFuture, for more time-travel and offspring-related hijinks, and TimeTravelRomance, which could also lead to this trope.

* In ''Comicbook/{{X-Factor}}'', the longstanding question of Shatterstar's relationship with Longshot was finally resolved. [[spoiler: Due to a mystical battle, Shatterstar got blasted back to his native dimension [[AnotherDimension Mojoworld]], but [[TimeTravel in the past]]. The Spineless One scientist Arize used genetic material taken from Shatterstar to create [[ArtificialHuman Longshot]]. At a relative future point in Mojoworld's timeline, Longshot will father a child with the human mutant [[ComicBook/XMen Dazzler]]. This child will be [[HalfHumanHybrid Shatterstar]]. The infant will then be taken even further into the future, to be raised to become a gladiator and [[StableTimeLoop leading the life]] that includes his own involvement in the creation of his "father" and arranging his own upbringing.]] And we thought Cable and Rachel Summers had messed up origin stories!
* Creator/AlanMoore's [[http://www.againwiththecomics.com/2007/11/forgotten-alan-moore-chronocops.html "Chronocops"]] strip for ''[[ComicBook/TwoThousandAD 2000 AD]]'' sees the [[TimePolice time cop]] narrator arresting his partner, who attempted to marry his own grandmother as a young woman after he suffered a mental breakdown. The narrator himself ends up retiring from the TimePolice after this and marries his partner's grandmother himself. His (now former) partner says that [[GrandfatherParadox he's going to kill him]] when he gets out of jail.

* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' has the most bizarre form yet.

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.]]]]

* Played with, but averted, with the MarvelComics villains Kang the Conqueror and Doctor Doom. 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]]).

* ''Manga/TsubasaReservoirChronicle'': Following C!Syaoran 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.
