* [[GKChesterton The Ballad of the White Horse]] has [[HornyVikings Harold]], [[EvilOverlord Guthrum]]'s nephew. Unlike most other examples, he's stupid enough to be TheBrute and thus the first member of the [[FiveBadBand Four Bad Band]] to die - in fact, the only named character to die before [[FinalBattle Book Six]].

* ''SinCity'' gives us the Yellow Bastard, the heir to the Roark crime/political family, who is appropriately enough named Junior.

* Even if you don't feel Uther is especially evil, Arthur from the BBC's ''Series/{{Merlin}}'' qualifies completely. Bit of a WellDoneSonGuy, extremely loyal to his father, although he increasingly questions his most hardline policies, particularly on magic. (Which is logical, because Uther's stance on that particular matter is heavily irrational.)

* Howlyn, the BigBad of season 5 of ''EarthFinalConflict'', is an [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Atavus]] who ruled prehistoric Earth millions of years ago, when his kind were forced into hybernation by a meter shower. His son Yulyn wants nothing to do with Howlyn and refuses to kill to feed. He wants to return the Atavus to their homeworld, where they don't need to do that.

* The most famous aversion of all comes in ''TheEmpireStrikesBack'':
--> '''Vader''': "Luke, you have not yet realized your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. And with our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict, and bring order to the galaxy... Luke, you can destroy The Emperor! He has foreseen this! It is your destiny! Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son."

Added DiffLines:

* Discussed and analyzed in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6'', when Jake learns he's the son of the OmnicidalManiac MadScientist that is [[BigBad Albert Wesker]]. His attitude, fighting style, and even abilities are remarkably similar to Wesker's and he becomes moody and snappish out of fear that he's on his way to becoming Wesker Jr. [[spoiler:He ultimately averts it: ''not'' becoming this trope becomes the driving force that turns him into a selfless and heroic person]].

* Jose Von Reichter in ''CyberSix''. He's just as much of a nasty piece of work as his old man, though he seems to eschew his father's overt Nazi ideology in favour of being a horny little freak.

* Ezekiel Stane is the come out of nowhere variety. He took revenge on ''IronMan'' for his father's death 20 years prior (real time).

* In a sort of odd reversal, in the 1990's ''ComicBook/NewGods'' series, Yuga Khan popped up outta nowhere. "Yuga Khan?" Um, yeah. He's ''{{ComicBook/Darkseid}}'s father''. He's so horrifically {{badass}}, Darkseid basically hid in the basement when Daddy returned, until the latter managed to get himself imprisoned on the Source Wall. ''Again''. It sort of makes Darkseid an Overlord jr. by means of retcon. Never heard from again, of course.

* Mongul in {{the DCU}} is the son of the original Mongul. He is also far, far, FAR worse; if his father was a BloodKnight douchebag with some genuine MagnificentBastard moments, his son is an arrogant, manipulative, and depraved monster who kickstarted his career by ''punching his own sister's head off'', and from there displayed some of the most consistently disgusting behavior short of {{ComicBook/Darkseid}} or VandalSavage that the DCU has seen in a long time. [[spoiler:Of course, he eventually fucks with Sinestro and meets some much-needed [[HoistByHisOwnPetard karmic retribution]].]]
