** [[spoiler:Hinata, and the Hyuuga clan as a whole are descended from the Rikudou Sennin's younger brother]]brother, Hamura. Hinata herself is the "Byakugan Princess", whose birth was foretold to be pivotal to the future of Hamura's descendants, which is central to the main conflict of ''Film/TheLastNarutoTheMovie'']].



*** 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]].

* In ''Film/{{Crossworlds}}'', Joe eventually discovers that [[spoiler:his father was a member of LaResistance from another dimension, who was killed at the start of the film by the EvilSorcerer Ferris. The crystal pendant he has been carrying on his neck for much of his life is part of a [[DismantledMcGuffin dismantled]] RealityWarper]].

* 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.

* In ''Literature/CodexAlera'', Tavi has the dubious distinction of being the [[TheCallPutMeOnHold one and only normal guy]] in a world where ''everyone'' has ElementalPowers. He proceeds to save the world repeatedly anyway through a combination of {{badass}}itude, [[GuileHero intelligence]], and leadership skills. It turns out that in this last especially, [[spoiler:he, Gaius Oc''tavi''an takes after his dad, Gaius Septimus. The reason Tavi is a BadassNormal is that his mother, masquerading as his aunt, stunted his growth and magic to hide him, knowing that as the heir to the throne he'd be a huge target to the same people who went after his father. And eventually he starts to display the [[PersonOfMassDestruction other traits]] he inherited...]]

* The entire Royal line of [[HeraldsOfValdemar Valdemar]] is secretly descended from Vanyel, the Last Herald-Mage, through a bargain struck to preserve the continuity of the Monarchy during a time of major political upheaval. This is crucial to the plot, as his descendant, Princess Elspeth, takes up the mantle of being Valdemar's first new Herald-Mage six hundred years later. She subsequently meets up with yet another descendant of Vanyel, Firesong K'Treva of the Tayledras -- in fact, he's the one who tells her, as the Hawkbrothers were the only ones Vanyel entrusted with the knowledge outside of the inner Royal circle.

* ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'': In the earliest version of the story, Clark knew that the Kents had found him in a rocket ship, but had no idea where the ship came from, nor any inkling of the heroic legacy of his father, the original Jor-El. During UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, Kal-El came to Earth as a toddler and had total recall of his days on Krypton. In the Christopher Reeve movies, the Timm/Dini animated series, ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', and the ComicBook/PostCrisis {{Ret Con}}s, he didn't even know about the ''space ship'' until his powers developed to the point where his adopted parents couldn't just dismiss them any more.
