* Sarah [=McGregor=] of Creator/LurleneMcDaniel's ''One Last Wish'' book series. Her parents spent her life convincing her she was a "Miracle Baby" that took forever for them to conceive, only for her to find out the truth when she needs a bone marrow transplant and her siblings volunteer theirs. [[spoiler:She tries to reconcile with her birth mother only to learn AnAesop about how her "real family" is the one who raised her.]]

* In the video game ''{{VideoGame/FTL}}'' you can find an alien Mantis that was raised by humans and believes it is a human. Treating it like one and talking to it with a human crew member is one of the ways to get a positive outcome to the event.

* Similarly spoofed in a strip by French comic book artist [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claire_Bret%C3%A9cher Claire Bretécher]]. A couple tries to explain to their (young adult) children that they were adopted, being apologetic that they've waited so long to tell them. The parents are White; the son is Asian and the daughter is Black, yet both were oblivious. When finally clued in that they're NotBloodSiblings, however, they immediately and happily GetARoom.

** The trailer for the third movie inverts this; Po meets his father [[spoiler:who was revealed at the end of the second movie]] and doesn't recognize him. At all. Even after said father says the only reason he's in town was because he was looking for his son. Rather than state the obvious, Po instead wishes him good luck and the two part ways. ''Everyone else involved facepalm''.

** In a less conspicuous example, Zerika IV was raised by Dragonlords, and believed herself to be an orphan of that House whom they'd adopted. It's only when Sethra Lavode summons her for training that she learns she's [[LastOfHisKind the last Phoenix]], which explains her blonde hair and [[PlanetOfHats un-Dragonish]] personality traits.
