* In ''Literature/VampireAcademy'', Jill Mastrano is introduced as a non-royal Moroi in ''Shadow Kiss''. She spends the next two books in this role. In ''Last Sacrifice'', she is later revealed to be royalty, the paternal half-sister of Princess Lissa Dragomir. Rose announces Jill's true parentage in a public session of Court. Jill's existence is used to give Lissa status as head of a living royal house, voting rights in the royal council, and a valid claim as a candidate for the throne. Jill herself is made a Princess.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', [[BigBad Validar]] reveals he is the the player character's [[LukeIAmYourFather father]], and by extension the Avatar is now the heir to Plegia's throne. Virion is also revealed to be the head of a noble house in Valm at the start of the game's second act, though this is pretty obvious given how he acts.
* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem Blazing Sword]]'', Lyn finds out early on in her story that she's not just TheChiefsDaughter, she's also the heir to the throne of Caelin (her mother fell in love with the chief of the Lorca tribe, and they eloped) and has to take it back from her EvilUncle.
* Played with in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'' on two occasions. First, Joshua is revealed to the the prince of Jehanna mid-way through Eirika's story, but [[KingIncognito he was well aware of this, he was just hiding it from the rest of the party (and the player)]]. Secondly, L'arachel ''tries'' to [[InvokedTrope Invoke]] this dramatically on Eirika, [[EverybodyKnewAlready but no-one was ever fooled for a moment]].

* In the ''Literature/OldKingdom'' books, Lirael discovers in a vision that her father was the [[{{Necromancer}} Abhorsen]], meaning that she is now the Abhorsen-In-Waiting. This is [[TheCallPutMeOnHold why her Clayr seer power never developed.]]
