* On ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow,'' Donna's sister Janet has a pair of bratty twins whose father was apparently a preacher. Arguably fits under "Diabolic," but they're never shown as being more than over-excited kids, and that seems to be mostly from Janet's HandsOffParenting.

* Kyoko Sakura from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' was angelic until her father committed PaterFamilicide and she became cynical, but nowhere near as mind-blowingly diabolical . She goes back to being angelic after [[spoiler:Kyubey lets slip the AwfulTruth about Puella Magi.]]

* Kyoko Sakura from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' was angelic until is the daughter of a priest and UsedToBeASweetKid--until her well-intentioned DealWithTheDevil (not literally, but still) ended with her father committed PaterFamilicide [[GoMadFromTheRevelation going mad]] and she committing PaterFamilicide. She became cynical, but nowhere near as mind-blowingly diabolical . She goes back TheCynic and even TheSocialDarwinist, allowing [[{{Mooks}} Familiars]] to being angelic after [[spoiler:Kyubey lets slip kill people just so that she could harvest their Grief Seeds later. Her arc in the AwfulTruth about Puella Magi.]]show sees her recover some of her initial goodness and optimism.

* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has both [[PolarOppositeTwins Rin and Yukio]], who although adopted, still consider Catholic priest Fujimoto their rightful father. ([[AntiAntiChrist Their biological father is Satan]].) [[HotBlooded Rin]] appears to be the rebellious kind at first, with [[BadassBookworm Yukio]] taking the foil as his angelic counterpart. But shortly after the series starts, it's made clear that both boys are just trying to help the people they care about, and Rin starts to look less like a delinquent and more like a [[TheBigGuy brash optimist]] determined to [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulu punch out Cthulhu]]. [[spoiler:Yukio also starts to look less angelic as more of his hidden insecurities reveal themselves.]]

** [[TheRival Ryuji Suguro]] is also the son of a high priest (Buddhist, or at least Buddhist-ish) and a {{Foil}} for Rin--a RuleAbidingRebel with a HairTriggerTemper, loyal to his friends and with his own vendetta against Satan. He's also on par with Yukio in terms of intelligence.

%%* StanFreberg's father was a Baptist minister. He's admitted that this background helps account for the occasional dips into moralism in his comedy ("Green Chri$tma$", "Incident at Los Voraces").

* ''Comicbook/TheBigKahn'' is a graphic novel that begins with a rabbi's funeral; there, his family discovers that he wasn't even Jewish, but a criminal who pretended to be a rabbi for a con before BecomingTheMask. This causes his oldest son, who had been angelic, to fall "off the derech," while his younger son and daughter, who were not devout, begin to reexamine the religion that made their father completely change his life.

* In TheBible, Jewish priesthood is passed from father to son, and still is today (note that this is separate from being a ''rabbi,'' which isn't). Thus, any good ''kohen'' counts as this trope.

** Eli was a renowned priest and judge. His two sons by birth were [[SinisterMinister corrupt ministers]] who had respect "neither for the Lord; nor for the priests' duties for the people; they treated the offerings to the Lord with disdain" (1 Samuel 2:12b,13a,17b). The priesthood eventually went to the [[HappilyAdopted adopted]] son for whom the book is named.
** Also, the very first High Priest, Aaron (the brother of Moses), had two of his sons mess up (Leviticus 10:1,2). The immediate pronouncement of a decree from YHWH about not drinking "wine or strong drink" when doing priestly duties has led some scholars to speculate that alcohol may have been involved.

* On ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons,'' Krusty the Clown is the son of a rabbi; they were estranged for years due to his decision not to follow in his father's footsteps. More recently seasons tend to emphasize him as MrViceGuy, but at his core he really does love children and comedy.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'': Toki Wartooth hits both ends of the spectrum. He's the most innocent, childish, and kind-hearted member of his group... then again, his group are world-famous death-metal rock stars, and he is prone to increasingly frequent {{Freak Out}}s and bouts of UnstoppableRage.
