* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/BlameItOnTheBrain'' makes greater use of the idea of Fry being his own grandfather. Not only does this give him an immunity to the Brainspawn due to his lack of a delta brainwave, but his self-manifestation [[spoiler:gives him a link to the fundamental fabric of the universe, much like the Nibblonians and the Brainspawn, who are essentially inverted versions of each other, although it is left unclear whether the Brainspawn manifested from the Nibblonians or the Nibblonians are the pre-flection of the Brainspawn]].

* In ''ComicBook/XFactor'', 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!

** 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.
