* ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'' takes Ash's father and his status of this in canon up to 11. Not only does Ash realize the memories of him have become so hazy he can't even remember anything about him, but [[spoiler: Ash also encounters a number of characters who look like him, culminating in one of these people calling Ash her brother.]] Outside of that, plot occurring outside of Ash's awareness builds the mystery up more and more.

Interestingly, [[TruthInTelevision real-life]] relationships can be just as tortuous and surprising as the fictional ones; for a famous example, JackNicholson learned just days before the premiere of ''Film/{{Chinatown}}'' that his recently deceased "sister" was in fact his natural mother, and that the parents who raised him were in fact his grandparents (similar switches occurred in other people's lives, such as singer Bobby Darrin).
