* In the WhateleyUniverse, up until Billie Wilson got her superpowers, she had no idea that her parents were superpowered mutants who work for the C.I.A. Or that her annoyingly-perfect older brother was a superpowered mutant with a low-level Paragon power. Or that her incredibly annoying kid inventor younger brother was ''also'' a mutant. Okay, her brothers were also clueless on this until she manifested and became Tennyo. (On the other hand, Jadis Diabolik has known about her father since she was old enough to keep a secret, because he is one of the most wanted supervillains on the planet.)

** The only exception to this legacy is Marshall D. Teach, who's shown to beg for his life if it is in any real danger. [[spoiler:This leads Whitebeard to conclude that "the man Roger is waiting for" is not him, insinuating that despite having the initial, Teach is not a true inheritor of the Will of D.]]

** The only exception to this legacy is [[BigBad Marshall D. Teach, who's Teach]], who, while certainly infamous and powerful in his own right, is shown to beg for his life if it is in any real danger. [[spoiler:This leads Whitebeard to conclude that "the man Roger is waiting for" is not him, insinuating that despite having the initial, Teach is not a true inheritor of the Will of D.]]

* The manga ''InitialD''. A character is left in the dust of an old Corolla, something he is understandably annoyed about, as he is riding an RX-7. He rides to a nearby gas station the next day to see if they know about the rust bucket, where the manager of said station implies that the only car fitting that description belongs to the main character's father, a local racing legend back in the day. The main character, however, couldn't care less about this bit of information (or about anything else at the beginning of the series.)

Heroes are a lonely lot. Whether a SuperHero, [[PsychicPowers psychic]], the LastOfHisKind, or an IgnoredExpert fighting uphill for the sake of the ungrateful masses, heroing is a solitary and unpopular path that separates one from all other {{Muggles}} and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies even loved ones]]. His own family can come to reject the hero, [[WellDoneSonGuy denying their approval]] or outright [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer scorning him as a freak]], it's not like their career choice is following the ancient family legacy. Or is it?

*** According to Donquixote Rocinate, Doflamingo's younger brother and [[spoiler: a former World Noble]], the people of his home country consider those who bear the initial D "God's natural enemy," and go so far as to tell their children boogeyman stories about how "D" will eat them up. They even have a saying about how D will always call up a storm whenever someone with the initial starts making a name for themselves (which has thus far been completely correct). [[spoiler: That's right, the freaking World Nobles see the "D Clan" as demons.]] But not even they know exactly what it means. Nonetheless, the D have been known to chafe against them and the World Government for decades, if not ''centuries''. [[spoiler:Trafalgar Law's conflict with Donquixote Doflamingo, a former World Noble, is just one of the many conflicts between the D and those who bear the blood of the "creators" of the world]], and nothing else can be said of Luffy's actions over the course of the series, or those committed by the rest of his family.
** Portgas D. Ace the son of [[spoiler: Pirate King Gold D. Roger]] was indirectly responsible for the greatest conflict in the story so far which ended up with both [[his death and the death of Whitebeard the "Strongest Man in the World."]]
*** The D.'s are in fact so infamous that one of them [[spoiler: Monkey D. Dragon]] is in fact the 'Most Wanted Man in the World" and the [[spoiler: father of the protagonist and son of Monkey D. Garp a legendary Marine]].

* The second two ''Film/OceansEleven'' movies use this with Linus Caldwell's parents. In ''Film/OceansTwelve'', his mother appears as a police officer, takes over the investigation of his crime, [[PerpSweating breaks him]] in the interrogation room, and we are treated to a stunning reveal in the cars on the way out of the station. In ''Film/OceansThirteen'', his father turns up and pulls a very similar stunt. In both cases, the twist works only because we don't know who these police officers are and they are introduced as if their credentials are valid. In his father's case, great pains are taken to hide his last name until just before TheReveal (when he's referred to as Agent Caldwell). Even when he answers his phone at the FBI, he doesn't use his name, just his phone extension.
