* Angie King of ''Preacher's Kid'' starts out as the perfect angel. Twenty-two, she still spends most of her time serving her church and keeping her father, the bishop of a evangelical church. She is seduced into a life of theater and debauchery when she leaves with a traveling show. Near the beginning of the film, she complains about how preacher's children have to be perfect while Devlin continues to push the idea of all preacher's children being "the biggest freaks ever".

* Neil Hannon of Music/TheDivineComedy is the son of a bishop. Would you guess that from listening to ''Casanova'', an album about... well, look at the title? (He did also write the theme music to FatherTed, mind you).

* ''Manga/BlueExorcist'' has both Rin and Yukio, who although adopted, still consider Catholic priest Fujimoto their rightful father. Rin appears to be the rebellious kind at first, with 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 brash optimist determined to punch out Cthulhu.

Cthulhu. [[spoiler:Yukio also starts to look less angelic as more of his hidden insecurities reveal themselves.]]

* In TsaristRussia, children of Orthodox clergy were ''very'' disproportionately represented in the fields of revolutionary movement, materialist philosophy and natural sciences (one explanation of this fact is that they transposed religious attitude to secular ideologies). From a conservative standpoint, "priest's son" was pretty much synonymous with "iconoclast and troublemaker." In addition, many noblemen's sons who went to universities found it humiliating to be taught by professors of such lowly origins, and mocked science and university education as a bunch of TechnoBabble invented by bearded priests' sons.
* Gudrun Ensslin, one of the founding members of the [[WestGermany West German]] [[WesternTerrorists leftist terrorist group]] Red Army Faction, was the daughter of a pastor.

* Creator/JamesHerriot mentions that in during his RAF training, one of the cadets singing the bawdy songs loudest was the son of an archbishop.
%%* Creator/JohnCho's father is a minister in the Church of Christ.
* Pornstar Melrose Foxxx is the daughter of a preacher.
%%* Baptist Preacher William J. Murray is the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition, author of books such as ''The Church Is Not For Perfect People'', ''Let Us Pray: A Plea for Prayer in Our Schools'', and ''The Pledge: One Nation Under God''. He is the son of [[InvertedTrope (in)famous atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair]], and pressured the police to find out what happened to her.
* Inversion: Maria von Trapp, inspiration for ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'', did indeed intend to become a nun. She was brought up by a socialist atheist.
* On another tack, Creator/FriedrichNietzsche's father and maternal grandfather were both Lutheran ministers. [[TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes Naturally]], he grew up to be a harsh critic of Christianity, more or less painting it as the worst thing ever to happen to Western civilization. [[note]]This is a bit of an exaggeration, but not too much, and in any case [[TheGadfly Nietzsche would probably approve]][[/note]].
* Jim Bakker, the [[SinisterMinister controversial televangelist who ended up going to prison for fraud]] had a son, Jay Bakker. Jay's faith flip-flopped, resulting in some trouble with the law before he returned to Christianity and became a minister himself. He is now the head of a pro-gay marriage alternative church in New York. He was the focus of the Sundance channel's ''One Punk Under God'' documentary series.
* Martin Luther King Jr was one. He followed in his father's footsteps and became a minister himself. His children were of course Preacher's Kids as well and some of them also became ministers. He was "mixed" in that his father didn't really appreciate his particular approach to theology - and likewise, his kids who have become ministers have taken different approaches (particularly on the gay rights issues, where some are pro-gay and some are anti-gay, though of course all insist that they're upholding their father's legacy).
* UsefulNotes/MalcolmX was the son of a minister. He too became a minister like his dad but of the Muslim rather than Christian faith.
* Billy Graham's son Franklin was the bad seed type before he turned his life around and has since followed in his father's footsteps-- though [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement perhaps]] [[SinisterMinister not very well.]]
** Billy Graham's ''grandson'', Tullian Tchividjian, was similar to his uncle: rebellious youth before becoming a minister himself. He was pastor of the church of the late D. James Kennedy, a minister in the Religious Right, and became a prominent "New Calvinist" known for his distinctive differences from Kennedy: eschewing political activism and traditional worship styles. [[DownerEnding And then in 2015, he resigned from his pastorate after confessing to adultery.]]
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Schaeffer Frank Schaeffer]]. Son of televangelist Francis Schaeffer, raised fundamentalist Christian. Left the Religious Right in the mid-[[TheEighties eighties]] and later wrote a book entitled ''Crazy for God: How I Grew Up As One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back''.
%%* The book ''Bare Your Soul'' has an essay titled "Daughter of a Preacherman", which hangs a huge lampshade on this trope. The woman who wrote it doesn't fit either category.

* KatyPerry also grew up as one of these, and was originally a [[ChristianRock Christian pop]] singer before her mainstream turn. Let's just say, her parents were ''pissed'' when they first heard "[[LesYay I Kissed a Girl]]".
** With what she said about Music/LadyGaga's "Alejandro" music video, she might not be so divergent from her Christian roots as she appears to be.
** Also, one of the reasons for her divorce from RussellBrand was said to be the fact that he often makes jokes at the expense of Christianity (although that could easily be chalked up to her not appreciating her husband mocking her parents).
